Hi

I am a member of the Royal Pharmaceutical Society of Great Britain. If you have a query about a pharmacist, chemist, druggist, apothecary I may be able to help. Also on queries regarding early types of medicines, chemist shops, drug treatments, leeches, maggots, drug jars, etc.

Hello Jane,
Your posting interested me as I'm researching UK trade. Are you still able to help with Chemist lookups? If so please may I ask a favour?
I have in my library Kelly's Directories for Chemists & Druggists for years 1893,1919, 1930 & 1938 but cannot find one (male) O.B.DUCKETT who was a Pharmacist and Dispensing Chemist. His shop is described as The Little Pharmacy..As I cannot find him in my Kelly's and no trace in the 1901 & 1911 censuses I'm guessing he was trading in Scotland between 1919-1930. His Apparell would also suggest this period.
Would you be able perform a look up, please?
Thanks in advance!

Owen Bertram Duckett b. 1887 Margate, Kent....he was a Pharmacist Manager and Proprietor of 20, Blackheath Road, Greenwich.

Hi Jane
I have emailed the Guild and they only have the rare chance to check their register so, although I'm sure you are overwhelmed with requests but could I add another name please?

John SPICER mid 17thC from Northamptonshire. John was noted as an apothecary on his daughters bap in 1635

Thanks so much, no rush

Hello Jane
This is a kind offer
My ggf William Waller Stapleton practiced in Shefford, Bedfordshire in the 1850 and 60s.
I do know he had a number of run-ins with the local constabulary for after hours drinking.
However I can find no link to why he left the chemistry business so abruptly, and wondered whethe he jumped before he was pushed, so to speak. 
Is there any possibility you couldlok into this, please.
Best wishes
Mark ;)
