Thomas and Mary Willson - 19th Century Furniture Makers
Thomas Willson's name is entered in directories as a furniture broker and appraiser of 68 Great Queen Street, London, England, between 1821 and 1829.
Mary Willson and her son Matthew continued the business from 1830 - 1837.
In 1838 Matthew Willson started a separate business operating as a furniture warehouse, furniture works and upholstery business.

The firm was established in 1818 and contrary to popular belief, they were cabinet makers as well as a furniture brokers: 'Thomas Willson & Co. Cabinet Maker and Upholsterer, 68 Great Queen Street, Lincoln's Inn Fields, London.' Every article of furniture for the Drawing, Dining, Bed Room and Library of first-class make.
This important fresh evidence suggests that the firm's name-stamped furniture can be divided into second-hand pieces, which were merely retailed and items made in their own workshop for sale.

From the 'Pictorial Dictionary of MARKED LONDON FURNITURE 1700 - 1840' By Christopher Gilbert.
