Coleman, Turquand, Youngs & Co.
Coleman, Turquand, Youngs & Co. was a London based accounting firm formed in 1857.1 According to historian Edgar Jones, James Edward Coleman, one of the firm's partners, had established a considerable reputation as a City accountant by the late 1840s and was often called by the Bank of England to investigate the solvency of suspect firms, including Trueman & Cook, colonial brokers.2 Following Coleman's death on 6 November 1868, the firm was renamed Turquand, Youngs & Co.3
