      occupied premises from 
      • The earliest record of premises occupied by a Farmiloe appears in the Westminster Rate books in 1852 in relation to no. 12 Rochester Row when it was occupied by "Meakin and Farmiloe". This Meakin was presumably a relative of Elizabeth Meakin. who married Thomas' father George. In 1853 the occupiers were Thomas and William Farmiloe. The premises seem to have been re-numbered to no.23 in 1865. in 1867, no.21 was also occupied by Thomas and William. The occupation continued until 1873 when Frederick Bullock appears with Thomas and William in respect of no.17 (as no.17 was empty in the previous year, it would seem that nos.17, 21 and 23 became one unit). This occupation continued until 1877. In 1878 Thomas Butler replaced Frederick Bullock and their occupation continued to 1881. In 1882, John Farmiloe replaced Butler and their occupation continued ujntil 1900 when the premises were recorded as being occupied by the company.

        An old photograph survives, probably showing the Church in Rochester Row.
      Court case 19 Jul 1869  Salisbury, Wiltshire Find all individuals with events at this location  [5
      an action brought by Mr Tanner against the firm relating to defective oil was heard by Lush J. 
      • The Times reported that the action was heard before Mr Justice Lush and a Common Jury in the Western Circuit, Civil Side. Mr Falkend appeared for Mr Tanner, the Plaintiff and Mr Kingsdon QC and Mr Collins appeared for the Defendants. The Plaintiff was a painter and glazier at Chippenham. The Defendants were all merchants in London. The Plaintiff had been in the habit of purchasing his oils from the Defendants. In June of the previous year, the Plaintiff purchased some which he alleged were so bad that the paint mixed with it would not dry and in consequence he sustained loss by being injured in his trade and not being paid for work he had done.
        On the part of the Defendants, it was alleged that the oil was good and must have been mixed by the Plaintiff with other injurious matter.
        The case lasted almost the entire day and resulted in a verdict for the Defendants.
        (Note: the reference in the report to the Defendants being "all" merchants suggests that there were more than two and therefore that John Farmiloe was already a partner).

      was interviewed by a researcher from the Charles Booth survey 
      • Charles Booth's Inquiry into the Life and Labour of the People in London, undertaken between 1886 and 1903 was one of several surveys of working class life carried out in the 19th century. It is the only survey for which the original notes and data have survived and therefore provides a unique insight into the development of the philosophy and methodology of social investigation in the United Kingdom.

        The survey was published as Life and Labour of the People 2 vols (London: 1889) (title of Vol 2 reads Labour and Life of the People), Labour and Life of the People 2 vols & Appendix (London: 1889-1891 2nd ed.), Life and Labour of the People in London 9 vols & Maps (London: 1892-1897) and Life and Labour of the People in London 17 vols (London: Macmillan,1902-1903). However, Booth included in the published volumes only information that could be quantified, and which would not identify or embarrass any individual interviewee. For these reasons much of the vivid detail can only be traced through use of the original notebooks.
        The survey notes and data form a rich and varied resource for investigation into the social and economic history of late 19th century London. Living and working conditions, the lives and employment of women, organisation of trade and industry, the effects of national and international migration, leisure activities, and the religious life of the capital are all described in detail. The Booth collection held by the Archives Division of the British Library of Political and Economic Science (London School of Economics) contains 450 original notebooks from the survey

      • Practice Note; King v T and W Farmiloe Ltd [High Court, Queen's Bench Division 5 February 1953]
        Legal Aid – Assisted person unsuccessful litigant – Application by opponent for costs – No notice of issue of civil aid certificate served – Legal Aid (General) Regulations, 1950 (SI, 1950, No 1359), reg 15(2).
        In an action for negligence by a plaintiff, in respect of whom a civil aid certificate had been issued, judgment was given for the defendants. The plaintiff's solicitors had failed to serve on the defendants Form VI as required by reg 15(2) of the Legal Aid (General) Regulations, 1950. On an application by the defendants for an order as to costs as though the plaintiff was not a legally assisted person,
        Held – The plaintiff was a legally assisted person within the definition in reg 1(3) of the regulations of 1950, and, consequently, his liability as to costs was to be determined by s 2(2)(e) of the Legal Aid and Advice Act, 1949; reg 15(2) was merely part of the machinery for administering the Act and non-compliance with reg 15(2) did not invalidate the plaintiff's rights as a legally assisted person; and, therefore, the plaintiff was liable for only a limited sum for costs.
        Chedlow for the plaintiff. John Thompson for the defendants.
        Solicitors: J R Spencer Young (for the plaintiff); Blount, Petre & Co (for the defendants).
