Thomas Willson is recorded as a furniture broker and appraiser 1821-1829 and is probably the same Thomas Willson recorded as an auctioneer at 28 Great Queen Street, 1799-1825. It was believed that Willson was a dealer in second-hand furniture who used his stamp as a means of identification and it has been found on pieces stamped Gillows of Lancaster as well as many pieces of 18th-century origin. One labelled piece of furniture is known and suggests that the firm did have a cabinet making division. The business was continued by Mary Willson after 1838.
