      Account and bank books of Robert Hiorne Hobbes, Stratford-upon-Avon, solicitor, with papers relating to etsates of which he was an executor
      Papers of Robert Hiorne Hobbes of Bedford Row in the County of Middlesex and of Stratford upon Avon.
      This firm was founded by Robert Hiorne Hobbes in 1828. In 1843 he took into partnership John Slatter, and they operated as Hobbes and Slatter until 1865 when the former's son, William Hobbes, joined the partnership to establish the firm of Hobbes Slatter and Hobbes. This partnership was dissolved in 1876 and two new firms set up. One consisted of Robert Hobbes and John Slatter and returned to the name Hobbes and Slatter. William Hobbes apparently set himself up independently but the following year, on the final breakup of the partnership between Hobbes senior and Slatter, he was joined by his father and Alexander Pearce to form the partnership, Hobbes Son and Pearce. On the death of Robert Hobbes this partnership was dissolved yet again and William Hobbes re-established himself with a new partner to form the firm Hobbes and Norbury. In the meantime John Slatter had set up in partnership with his son (Slatter and Son) and in 1879 they were joined by Frank Gibbs (Slatter Son and Gibbs). This partnership lasted until 1911 when the firm Slatter Son and Slatter was established. The Slatter partnerships were housed in the Warwick Road premises where Robert Hobbes had founded the practice. William Hobbes, when he left the firm in 1876, practised in Old Town and Ely Street but his firm's books were found on the Warwick Road premises, presumably because Slatter Son and Gibbs wound up the firm when William Hobbes died.
      Robert Hiorne Hobbes died on 30th April 1880.
      Daughters: Elizabeth Ann 16th December 1833, Emma Rice Hobbes 16th December 1833
