Management of company
J.H. Gosling's sons and grandsons succeeded him in the business throughout the 19th century. The last links with the founder's family were severed with the deaths of Matthew Gosling and Herbert Gosling at the end of the 19th century. The manager at the time was Arthur Snow and his son, Ernest Snow, succeeded him at the store.
In October 1795, J.H. Gosling founded a drapery store at 80 George Street, Richmond, London. As trade increased, 75, 76, 77, 78 and 79 George Street were incorporated into the store. In April 1947, Gosling & Sons Ltd was acquired by John Barker & Co Ltd, department store retailers, of London. The store was badly damaged by fire in 1962 and demolished in 1968. The company was officially liquidated in 1974.
