Biography
From the early 1760s Thellusson worked with the Fonblanque family, from 1763-6 in partnership with Anthony and the widow of his brother John, with each partner contributing £5,000 to the business.
When Anthony died in late 1766, Thellusson operated independently for a while before establishing a new and long-lasting partnership with John Cossart, the former chief clerk at Fonblanque and Thellusson, in which he was the dominant partner with a large majority share of 15/16ths of the business.
