ActivityThe firm of Allan, Buckley Allan and Milne, advocates, was established in Aberdeen’s Castle Street in 1887. George Allan, the son of an Aberdonian shipmaster of the same name, was born in Aberdeen in 1820 and studied at Marischal College there from 1835 to 1837. He was apprenticed to the advocate John Yeats in 1834 and enrolled in the Society of Advocates in 1844. George Milne was a solicitor and notary public who seems to have been working with George Allan from at least 1880. In 1887 John Buckley Allan, George Allan’s fourth son (b 1855), joined them and the company was formed. George Milne left the company in 1904, possibly to retire, and the firm became Allan, Bucklay Allan and Company, now in Bridge Street in Aberdeen where they had moved in 1897. After George Allan’s death in 1912, John Buckley Allan remained as the sole partner until 1921 when, just before his own death, he took on a new partner, Alan T.T. Whitehouse. He remained in the firm until 1971, just after the firm’s move to Rubislaw Terrace. W. Balfour Robb, OBE, was partner from 1947 to 1967, and Stephen Andrew Cormack Robertson (Aberdeen University MA 1954, LLB 1957) joined as an advocate in 1964 and became a partner in 1966. Allan J. Whitehouse, probably Alan T.T. Whitehouse’s son (Aberdeen University MA 1961, LLB 1965) joined the firm in 1968. He left in 1975, when the firm amalgamated with the firm Wilsone and Duffus at 7, Golden Square, Aberdeen, by which name they are still known.
