Ephraim Reinhold Seehl, in England, Ephraim Rinhold Seehl was an Apothecary or Chemist of German origin who settled in England and was naturalised as a British Subject by Act of Parliament in 1783 (23 Geo c. 8).
Additional recommended knowledge
He is one of only three people with addresses in Poplar and Blackwall to be found in Mortimer's Universal Director of 1763, where his entry reads, 'Seehl, Ephraim Rinhold, Copperas Merchant, Blackwall; or at the Bank Coffee-house, Threadneedlestreet.' At this time he was leasing the Copperas Works (Bromley) from his brother-in-law, the Blackwall shipwright John Perry.
He was widely travelled in Europe and wrote, in English, A new improvement in the art of making the true volatile spirit of sulphur (1744) and A short treatise upon the art and mystery of making of copperas.(1768)
His autograph book shows that he was almost certainly a Rosicrucian.
