    The furniture-making firm of Seddon was established at London House, Aldersgate Street, from its beginnings in the early 1750s until it moved to Gray's Inn Road following a disastrous fire in 1830. The Seddon family firm was sufficiently large to provide the workshops for the separate partnership of Morel and Seddon, that provided so much Royal furniture in the 1820s.
