Notice given in Daily Advertiser, 27 March 1744 of sale of his entire stock in trade, ‘consisting of very neat Bookcases, Walnut-Tree and Mahogany Buroes, a large Pier Glass in a carv'd gold Frame, Sconces ditto, Mahogany card and other Tables, double Chest of Drawers…’; catalogues to be had from ‘Mr. Smith's, Upholder, at the Chair in Fleet Street’.

Taprell, Stephen & Holland, William, London, cm, u, chair and sofa manufacturers (c. 1803–35) succeeded by Taprell, Holland & Son (1835–43). This firm trading as Holland and Sons after 1843 (sometimes after 1846 as William Holland and Sons) became one of the greatest furnishing firms of the Victorian period and was active until 1942. Taprell is recorded at St James's, Westminster, 1806–07; 25 Gt Pulteney St, 1815–26 and also at 19 Mary-le-Bonne St, 1817–51 with manufactory at 6 Silver St, 1826–43. He is probably the Stephen Taperell who subscribed to Sheraton's Cabinet Dictionary, 1803. [D] On 4 December 1806 he took app. named James Potter jnr for seven years for £48. [PRO, IR 1/40]. Stephen Taprell, the senior partner, remained actively in business until his partner William Holland took over in 1843. Little is known about Taprell, but the existence of a deed relating to land in Chelsea purchased by Henry Holland the architect and his cousin Richard Holland, lodged in the V&A among other documents relating entirely to the furnishing firm, points to family connexion between William Holland and Henry, the Regency architect. Book I of the Holland Records reveals much evidence of a close business relationship between the Taprell-Holland partnership and a prosperous building and timber firm: Copland, Rowles and Holland. In that firm, Alexander Copland was a successful builder who had been trained by Richard Holland; Henry Rowles was Henry Holland's nephew and the third partner was originally the architect himself.

It seems not unlikely that out of the speculative development of Hans Town, East Chelsea between the 1770s and 1790s by Henry Holland (d. 1806) and his master builder father, Henry Holland snr (d. 1785), came the evolution of the building and timber firm, Copland, Rowles and Holland. As that firm had its own brickworks, sawpits and building tradesmen, it would have been in its own interest to foster a related cabinet making business. The closeness of the relationship is suggested by a later note of 1826 in which a payment of £156 18s 6d was made to Taprell and Holland ‘by timber from Messrs Copland, Rowles and Holland’. The need for a furnishing firm may have become apparent when that building firm developed the Albany in 1803–04 as residential chambers for wealthy men who did not require large town houses. One was Henry Holland's bachelor son Henry, who occupied chambers in Albany for many years. The special connection between the building and furnishing firms is further emphasised by the evidence of a bill of 1825 for Taprell-Holland furniture supplied to L. Holland, the architect's second son, Col. Launcelot Holland, being met by a credit of timber from Messrs Copland and Co.

Stephen Taprell died in 1847 aged 73 and was buried in the Holland family vault in Kensal Green Cemetery. A man of some substance, he had owned several properties including 29 Hertford St, 24 Chester Terr. and houses in Maida Vale and Tunbridge Wells. His estate was valued at £3,157. The esteem in which he was held by the Holland family is shown by the fact that William Holland's second son James, who was the senior partner of the firm from 1851–72, named his first two sons Stephen Taprell and George Taprell (Holland). By 1824 Taprell and Holland had achieved a reputation which led to their earliest known major commission, the furnishing of the Athenaeum, 1824–38. [Furn. Hist., 1970] Little more is known of the firm's activities in the period up to 1840 except that they supplied furniture to seven other clubs and some items to Arundel Castle, Harewood House and Ickworth.

Having worked alongside the prestigious firm of Thomas Dowbiggin on their first royal commission at Osborne House and elsewhere from 1845, Holland and Sons took over his premises at 23 Mount St in 1851 and his business in 1853. [Colvin; Burlington, November 1969; E. Joy, Holland and Sons: A Victorian Furnishing Firm, unpublished typescript in V&A archives; Holland records 1824–1942, 235 volumes in above dept (years 1826–35 missing)]
THE UNION CLUB, London, 1823, dining chairs and dinner tables. [Furn. Hist., 1970] THE ATHENAEUM, London, 1824–38. Before the Athenaeum club house, designed by Decimus Burton, was ready in 1830 Taprell and Holland supplied to the Club's temporary quarters at 12 Waterloo Pl. in 1824 ‘20 dinner tables and 5 dozen chairs of the same pattern and price as those supplied to the Union Club’ and lent other needed items. Burton, working in close association with the Club, provided drawings for some fittingly Grecian style furniture and supervised its production by Taprell and Holland. They continued to supply this and their own stock productions until 1830 and again later, as the Club's needs grew, to a final total of £6,700. The firm's records of the period 1826–35 have been lost but a list of the Athenaeum's furniture is available in the Club's Inventory of 1831. Holland's listings of the pre-1826 furniture suggest characteristic Regency forms. There are dining tables ‘on pillars and 3 claws each’, Pembroke tables with turned legs, ‘sofa tables on Grecian stands’, circular tables on pillars and triangular bases; chairs are: ‘stained rosewood with tablet tops and caned seats’, ‘gondola chairs with cushions in blue leather’, ‘mahogany with tablet tops, seats French stuffed’, ‘zebra wood chairs with scroll over tops, loose seats French stuff'd w/t best hair covered in crimson and drabstripe’ and Grecian couches are specified ‘with squabs and bolsters’.
Much furniture was designed specificially for the principal reception rooms where much still remains along with replacements and later additions. A good deal of stock furniture was also supplied for servants’ bedrooms. Taprell and Holland also made a gallery, to Burton's design, for the library in 1832 and in 1835 they supplied furniture and worked to convert the Map Room into a second library.

A Sun Insurance policy in his name, dated 1777, is for £1,000 on Stamford Town Hall, and he was both Alderman and Mayor of Stamford in 1792. In May 1804 as Alderman, his estimate of £2,200 for building the New Shambles at Stamford was rejected, and he promptly resigned from the committee dealing with this work. Henry Tatham's name appears regularly in the Burghley Estate Day Books between 1773 and 1793, when the 9th Earl of Exeter died. Payments are recorded for goods, mahogany and upholsterer's work and also for work as an architect and builder. His label is recorded on a Pembroke table at Burghley, of ambitious design in marquetry, with an overall trellis pattern ‘in the French mode’, and carried out mainly in walnut and tulipwood, with free use of ebonized work at edges. Another Pembroke table at Burghley, without a trade label, is clearly from the same workshop, with ebonized work and veneer in parti-coloured wood in complicated patterns, rectangular on the top and herring-boned on the legs. Of Tatam's building work, only his house at Barnhill is now identifiable, built between 1797–1802. He is probably the H. Tatham who subscribed to Sheraton's Drawing Book, 1793. [D; Stamford Town Hall Bk, 2A/1/4; GL, Sun MS vol. 262, p. 158; C. Life, 3 May 1973, p. 1236] He is likely to be the Tatam, u, named in the account book of Sir Gilbert Heathcote for Normanton Hall, Rutland, between 1797 and 1805 receiving payments totalling £101 19s 4d for ‘jobs at Normanton’, goods and upholstery.

[GL, Sun MS vol. 79, ref. 107286]

Trotter, John, Frith St, Soho, London, upholder and cm to George II (b. before 1730–99). Originally from Berwickshire, he ran a flourishing cm business in Frith St, and Heal records him in directories and the Royal accounts at no. 43, 1755–92. Trotter was 3rd son of Alexander Trotter of Kettleshiel, Berwickshire and his wife Jean, daughter of Sir Robert Stuart of Allanbank, and probably born in Edinburgh. His father died before 1730, leaving his widow with eleven children, mostly minors. John Trotter is said to have served his apprenticeship in Edinburgh, although he is not named in the published list. A brother, James, was app. to Charles Butter, wright, in Edinburgh, on 25 February 1730. Letters in the National Library of Scotland [MS 20262] show that his mother lent money from her Jointure (which he repaid) to set him up in London as a cm. He flourished and though not the eldest son, became principal trustee of his mother's estate, and aquired Kettleshiel. Trotter married Ann Locke in 1752, and had three sons, one of whom, James (?), succeeded him in the business, and also in the estate he bought in Surrey, Horton Manor. John Trotter became contractor to the Army. In 1774 he took as partner his nephew, John, son of Archibald Trotter of the Bush, Midlothian. This John Trotter bought Dyrham Park, Herts., and was brother of Sir Coutts Trotter, Bart, the banker. Both John Trotters appear in Burke's Landed Gentry, 1898. John & Coutts Trotter, upholders, are listed in directories at 43 Frith St, 1790–94, and 406 Oxford St in 1799. There is clearly confusion betwen the two John Trotters. He was noted by J. Boswell in London Journal, 17 May 1763, as ‘…a particular friend … who is originally from Scotland, but has been here so long that he is become quite an Englishman. He is a bachelor, an honest, hearty, good-humored fellow’. Trotter had dined with Boswell, James Coutts, Coutts's brother and a Mr Cochrane. Since John Trotter is recorded as having married in 1752, this passage perhaps refers to his nephew. Other sources record John Trotter as follows: he was admitted freeman of the Joiners’ Co. on 4 February 1745, and named in the livery of the Co. on 29 October 1751. Polled at Westminster in 1749, and subscribed to Chippendale's Director, 1754. Named as a Fellow of the Society of Arts and Manufactures in 1771 for one year only. In 1779 he insured houses for £1,500, and his house in Surrey for £900, with the Sun Co. John & Coutts Trotter of Frith St, upholders, took out Sun Insurance policies on 25 June 1785 (when recorded at nos 42, 43 and 44) for £500 on household goods, and £1,000 on utensils, stock and goods in trust; on 7 January 1791 for £2,000 on house, stables and offices in Soho Sq.; and on 4 February 1793 for £3,800 including £2,500 on a house in Soho Sq., and £1,300 on outhouses communicating in Oxford St. Gunnis states that Sir Henry Cheere carved chimney pieces for John Trotter of Soho Sq. [D; GL, Joiners’ Co. records; GL, Sun MS vol. 276, p. 634; vol. 278, p. 488; vol. 328, p. 619; ref. 579019; vol. 389, ref. 611372] Several of John Trotter's commissions are documented. Between 1754 and 1758 he carried out refurbishing of the Royal yachts, and worked at the Palaces of St James, Kensington, Hampton Court, and the House of Lords. His largest bill in the Royal accounts totalled £1,069 7s 8d and was for work at Kew, and at the houses of Princes William and Henry in Leicester Sq., 1758–59. [PRO, LC9/291–92] Trotter is named in the Blickling Hall, Norwich papers in August 1762. [Norfolk RO, 17148] John (or Bannister) Trotter supplied items to Henry Knight of Tythegston Court, Glam. in 1767. [C. Life, 5 October 1978, p. 1024] John & Coutts Trotter are recorded in the accounts for Blair Castle on 8 June 1787 providing bedding, ‘2 shooting tents’, ‘2 folding bedsteads’, and ‘26 camp chairs with elbows’; and charging for ‘Cartage to Mr. Foot's Adelphi’.
