No. not a death notice; it was just a filler couple of lines, with the net effect of congratulating the family (Or Garvagh!?) on producing two apothecaries at that time. I suppose maybe the second one William had just been appointed and was going to be joining his brother in Liverpool

So there is no birthyear and no name for his brother.  Gilmour can also be transcribed as Gilmore.

We don't know if he was in England (Lancs) in 1851 and there is no William Gilm** fitting his occ in Liverpool.

What is your connection to him?

I have several Gilmour/ Gilmore ancestors from townlands in the Garvagh area; my great great grandmother and great great great grandmothers were both Gilmours, from different families I think, marrying two Toye men, father and son, from Cullyrammer. I noticed the newspaper item while scanning the Coleraine Chronicle for other names and posted here in hopes that someone would have an idea where they were from

It would seem that from 1815, all apothecaries wanting to practice in England had to be licensed and Guildhall Library, London contains indexes for  "A list of persons who have obtained certificates of their fitness to practise as apothecaries from August 1, 1815 to July 31, 1840", but don't know if such index would state where they were from (assuming they even gained their certificates in that timescale). The also hold other Apothecary records.

Check this 1851 Liverpool Workhouse transcript...it has a William Gilmoss ? , aged 31, a Chemist/Druggist born Ireland and also a James Gilmour aged 35 Surgeon, also born Ireland....wonder if it might just be the brothers in question:

Yes it very well could be; well done for tracing them with such limited information; I think you've found them!
