It is not certain to what extent (if any) Thomas Walker may be identified with the 'Walker & Lee' partnership of c. 1781 listed in Hogan.

Succeeded in business by his son in 1788 (Munter).

[Dates and addresses differ according to sources: Humphries & Smith give it as 79 Dame Street but Munter gives it as Cicero's Head Dame Street. Humphries & Smith give the dates as c. 1778 to 1796 but Munter states that he was succeeded by his son in 1788.]
