Dr. William Oliver, invented the English Bath Oliver Biscuits. The doctor was a legendary physician who treated people with the spa waters at Bath. Hence the biscuit has been called the Bath Oliver.
He is said to have willed the recipe for Bath Olivers to his coachman Atkins, together with a sack of flour and a sum of money. Atkins set up in business at 13 Green Street and became rich by making the biscuit. After various changes in ownership, the Oliver biscuit recipe passed to James Fortt. In 1952 the Fortt family business was still baking 80,000 biscuits a day in Bath. The biscuits are no longer made in Bath, but are still available and are excellent when eaten with cheese, especially the local Cheddar.
