the death of the latter's nephew.' (Jaffray MSS.) This is erroneous. Lovejoy's nephew, one Rutter(q.v.), left him and went into business for himself. He later committed suicide. Lovekin probably purchased his plant.

LOW, John
1799 Holden, 2 Red Lion Street, Holborn.
1808 List, J. Low.
1809 Holden, s.a.
1813 List.

A John Low joined the Benefit Society in 1796, aet. 25, and was also a member of the Trade Society in that year. He took Honourable Leave 'to commence' [in business] in 1799, and left 5s. for drink.


LOW, Peter
1805 Holden, 2 Tash Street, Gray's Inn Road.
1808 List, Low.
1812, Bull and Mouth Street, when his s. Thomas was appr. to Abraham Egleton.
1813 List, P. Low.
1828 List, Bull and Mouth Street. He joined the Trade Society in 1797.

LOW, Richard
1808 List.
1809 Holden, Richard Lowe, 20 Warwick Square, Warwick Lane.
1813 List.

LOWTHER, James
Bookbinder, Citizen, and Merchant Taylor.
1749, Water Lane, Blackfriars, recd. a t.o. from Joseph Hassall, decd.
1759, s.a. when his s. William was appr. to James Brown.

Hassall, a freeman of the Merchant Tailors', received a t.o. from a freeman of the Stationers in 1746. He then signed the usual declaration to the effect that he would make the boy free of the Stationers' Company upon the expiration of his time. Hassell died c. 1749 and the boy was t.o. to Lowther by his executrix Elizabeth Hassell (widow?). It will be noted that although Lowther, like Hassell, was a Merchant Tailor, the t.o. transaction was effected through the register at Stationers' Hall. From the similarity of the address, and the fact that Hassell was dead, it would appear that Lowther succeeded to his business.
