Joseph Procter and the Procter Snuff Concern

Joseph Procter (d. 1865) was a London snuff maker and tobacconist who traded out of 101 Fleet Street. Jos. Procter was joined in business at an unclear date by a George Procter, of unclear relation, who in 1833 would assume full control over the firm, and Geo. Procter was succeeded upon his retirement in 1844 by the tobacconist William Kirk (d. 1866).
