Thomas Hubbuck & Son
Thomas Hubbuck & Son manufactured white-lead, oil paint, and varnish. The company was established in 1765 at 24 Lime Street, London with a factory at Hubbuck's Wharf in Ratcliff, Middlesex.
The company's products included special anti-corrosive paints and anti-oxidation compositions for ships, as well as patent white-zinc paint that was claimed not to "stain or discolour with the atmosphere of large towns."
