William Nicol (London)

Bookseller and Printer. William was the son of the Scottish born bookseller and publisher George Nicol (1740?-1828). George Nicol had moved to London in around 1769 and began working for his uncle, David Wilson, at his shop in the Strand. Wilson died in 1777 and by 1781 Nicol was trading under his name alone. In 1787 he moved his operations to Pall Mall, purchasing 51 and 58 Pall Mall. In 1800, the business was renamed George and William Nicol, presumably to reflect the involvement of George's son. After his father retired in 1825, William continued the business under both names until 1837, and under the name William Nicol alone from 1838 to 1855. From 1839 to 1855, William's business operated from premises at 60 Pall Mall.
