William Allen

Born on the 29th August, William was a trusted (Quaker) maker of medicines at a time when “over the counter” medicines could contain almost anything, even harmful substances. People knew they could trust him and knew that his medicine would work (or at least not harm them). He was also a social reformer and set up an “ideal” community in Surrey.
