William Trotter was born into a family of merchants in 1772, descended on the maternal side from the family of John Knox, he became a member of The Merchant Company in 1797 and by 1809 he was sole proprietor of the firm Young & Trotter. In 1819 he was elected master of The Merchant Company and from 1825-27 he was Lord Provost of Edinburgh. In 1814-15 he furnished the library and picture gallery which the architect Robert Reid had added to Paxton House for George Home. Trotter continued to trade from 9 Princes Street (the site on which the 'Balmoral Hotel' stands today) until his death in 1833. He was regarded as the perhaps the most eminent of all Scottish cabinet makers. Trotter was a great rival of James & Mathew Morrison who supplied the majority of furniture for Sir David Hunter Blair at the newly renovated Blairquhan House. This piece was apparently documented in the house archives as one of the few pieces at Blairquhan made by William Trotter
