I’ve searched for some while & can find no contemporary reference to Joseph Vaughan Hill being an apprentice to, waged employee, foreman, or partner of - or indeed having any relationship in life to: Joseph Howell of Chelsea. The sole connection I have seen is an trade advertisement of 1849, where Mr Hill describes himself as “successor to the late J. Howel” . . . . Can anyone recall seeing a solid contemporary source showing any relationship? If so, I would very much appreciate a link.
