Stephen Sackett carried on a business as a law stationer at 8 Quality Court, Chancery LaneG, from about 1804, when he advertised for an apprentice.7 He took a Thomas Devonshire as an apprentice, paying the requisite duty on the indenture of appprenticeship on 10 December 1805.8 The business was listed in numerous city directories from 1805.9,10,11 He was a frequent advertiser in the Times of London from about 1817. The advertisements were mainly for junior positions in the legal profession, suggesting that the business was used as a recruitment agency or perhaps as an accommodation address. The business subsequently traded under the name of Sackett & Ruscoe.
