Blundell set up shop from an outbuilding by his home at 24 Dean Street, Soho, London. With Dean Street being over the stipulated one-mile distance from his father-in-law’s business, he was seen as, lawfully, posing no threat to Mr. Hearn. Many years later, though, John Blundell incorporated the Hearn business into his own. J.Blundell and Sons is an old English family goldsmiths business that has been in the industry for nearly 200 years. It was launched back in 1839 by John Blundell, who set up his own shop after being refused entry to his wife’s previous family, the Hearn’s, gold refining business.

Many years later, though, John Blundell incorporated the Hearn business into his own. John Blundell changed his business trading name to J.Blundell & Sons when his two eldest sons, James John and Thomas George, became involved. By that time the family had moved to, and worked from, leasehold premises in 162 W ardour Street, London, which Blundell had bought in 1890 for 1780.0s.0d. After the death of his wife in 1897, John Blundell used some of her money to build on the land, which is now numbered 199 Wardour Street. John Blundell died, at the age of 78, in 1904. His two eldest sons - James John and Thomas George - who had previously become formal business partners continued running the company. By that time, though, Thomas George had three sons of his own - Thomas George, John Albert and Frederick Hearn. Of those sons Thomas George became a stockbroker and served in the 1914-1918 war. He survived the war only to return home and fall victim to the post war flu epidemic, which killed over a quarter of a million people. John Albert and Frederick Hearn were excused active service because of their work for Blundell's, which had become involved with the war effort.
