George Seddon (1796-1857) formed a partnership with a cabinetmaker and upholsterer called Nicholas Morel and the firm was called Morel & Seddon. One of their contracts was to make furniture for Windsor Castle. Nicholas Morel had been chosen as furniture maker in charge of re-furnishing Windsor Castle, but he needed the help of a large established firm for this vast commission and went into partnership with George Seddon and his company. The company worked almost exclusively for the crown at Windsor and other royal residences, and it employed designers including the young A.W.N. Pugin.

In 1830 George's brother Thomas III joined this partnership. After 1833 the name of the business reverted to Seddon & Sons. The firm finally closed in 1868.
