Voisin's, still in business today, was a partnership between Francis Voisin and Charles Bisson from 1858 to 1876


Voisin's in the 1890s

Voisin's department store was founded in 1837 at No 26 King Street by Francis Voisin, a 21-year-old draper. By the time of the 1841 census he had acquired the adjoining No 28, and moved to live there with his young family. No 26 is shown in the census as occupied by hatter Robert Cotton and his wife, perhaps employees of Voisin.
