John Debrett was a bookseller, publisher and compiler. Having completed an apprenticeship he moved to work for a bookseller and stationer called John Almon, in 1780. John Almon published a volume entitled "The New Peerage" in 1769 and, following the publication of a few further editions, passed on the editorship to John Debrett. In 1802 John Debrett published "The Correct Peerage of England, Scotland and Ireland" in two volumes, and in 1808 "The Baronetage of England", both under his own name. Over time, these publications evolved into "Debrett's Peerage, Baronetage, Knightage and Companionage". Debrett retired from his business in 1814 and died in 1822, although the business continues under his name to the present day.
