Footnotes

  • Gillow & Co.
    The company was established in 1730 in Lancaster by Robert Gillow (1704-1772), a trained cabinet maker who initially worked as a ship's carpenter. Lancaster was a major trading port and Gillow developed a trade with the West Indies importing fine mahogany from Cuba and Honduras. In the 1740s, Gillow opened a London warehouse, gaining him national recognition. The use of finely crafted mahogany enabled this humble Lancashire lad to establish a name for himself with the English nobility. The Gillow firm grew to become one of the most successful manufacturers of English furniture for the next 200 years.
