Thomas Cadell apprenticed under the well-respected Andrew Millar who had published Henry Fielding's 'The History of Tom Jones, A Foundling' as well as David Hume and Samuel Johnson. He and his son Thomas Cadell (the younger) would dominate England's publishing industry for over fifty years. Cadell gained a reputation for focusing on the category of "women's fiction", publishing Ann Radcliffe, Helen Maria Williams, Hannah More and Charlotte Smith, amongst other although he declined Smith's 'Desmond' (1792) for being too radical.

After his retirement in 1793, the firm passed to his son Thomas Cadell (the Younger), and a carefully chosen business partner, William Davies.
