Apothecaries' Company
   Formed one company with the Grocers at first. Incorporated as a separate Company 1617. Grocers petitioned against separation in vain, 1621. So long previously as 1328, the elections to the Mystery of Apothecaries were made separately from those to the Grocers (Cal. L. Bk. E. p. 232), although for many years subsequently, as in 1365, there was only one Warden for the trade of Grocers, Pepperers and Apothecaries (ib.G. p. 204).
   Physic garden at Chelsea given to them by Sir Hans Sloane (Dodsley, 1761).
   Styled the Society of Apothecaries.
