Administrative history

In 1789 Christopher Pemberton, a newly qualified attorney and solicitor, set up in business on his own. He remained trading on his own for 24 years until he took on his first partner Thomas Fiske in 1813. They traded as Pemberton and Fiske until 1820 when they were joined by William Woodcock Hayward and traded as Pemberton, Fiske and Hayward.
In 1829 Thomas Fiske died (aged 44) and the firm changed its name to Pemberton and Hayward. This lasted until Hayward died in 1838.
