Bio: I'm a retired Clinical Psychologist who has always been interested in family history and appreciated old furniture. I enjoy researching things I like and which grab my attention, especially if little is known about them or there is an element of mystery.

    Interesting to see someone else making a website about an English chairmaker. You might like to make a “related interest” link to my Philip Clissett website at http://www.philipclissett.co.uk which also publishes research into family history, chair styles, and working practices.
    Kind regards

    Thanks for all the great information. I have a set of six chairs I picked up from an estate with the stamp “J. Reilly’s Patent”. I can see the same legs and apron on many of the chairs posted on your site. I am ready to pass these project chairs on, but now have a greater appreciation as I can hardly believe how old they are and how well they have held up. I would love to post a photo but not sure how.
