24 King Street
24 King Street has been part of Voisin's since 1857. Previously it was occupied by a number of drapers. We can find no reference to the premises in the 1833 and '34 commercial directories which usually provide the earliest information about traders.
A 1937 directory and the 1841 census record the presence of drapers Abraham Le Sueur and William Bell, plus others, and in 1852 Philip John Larbalestier, a linen draper and silk mercer, was listed in the commercial section of the Post Office directory. We have been unable to find any more information about him.
