Glover, John (or Jonathan) (1774-1803)

Glover, John (or Jonathan), Piccadilly, London, upholder (1774–1803). Initially operated from 12 Piccadilly, on the corner of Albemarle St but by 1792 had moved to 63. From 1792 traded as Glover & Sons and the Charles Glover who took over the business in 1803 was one of these. In 1779 utensils, stock and goods were insured for £300. A house at 10 Queen St appears to have been tenanted by John Glover in 1785, and in 1804 the number of the house is given as 15. Two of John Glover's patrons are known. On 25 April 1785 Lord Monson settled an account for £32 19s 7d and on 26 April 1790 £1 10s 6d was paid to a G. Glover. On 28 August 1787 Baron Grey de Wilson of Heaton Hall, Manchester paid £4 19s 6d to Glover for some fire screens. Charles Glover subscribed to Sheraton's Drawing Book, 1793.
