Information from an eBay listing

"In 1818 he appointed his son Henry [John] Lias as his partner and the two worked together until 1879 when Henry Lias joined James Wakely in commissioning a firm which later was called Wakely & Wheeler in 1909. Approximately half of a century later, in 1957, the business merged with Padgett & Braham Ltd."
