You have Christopher Rossiter death 1724 as being of Queens Square, but the record states he was of Little Grays  ?   Lane

Could this be Christopher born 1710 son of Christopher and Jone. (spelling as in register)

We need some more wills.

George the widower who married Mary Bradshaw widow 1741, first married Eliza Eason by license 19 November 1737 at St Andrew's Holborn.

The James who was apprenticed to William Bradshaw would appear to be his brother baptized 1714.

Just found the apprenticeship record of George Rossiter son of Christopher Rossiter, Victualler of St Andrew Holborn also to William Bradshaw dated 7 November 1727. This one states that Christopher is deceased.

Nearly a break though, until the edit :)

There is an apprenticeship Record for James Rossiter son of Christopher Rossiter of St Andrews Holborn, Victualler, to be apprenticed to William Bradshaw to be taught Clothwerk (spelling as in document) dates 7 October 1729.
Which means this James was about 13/14 years old born circa 1714/15.
Also that Christopher Rossiter of St Andrews Holborn was still alive 1729, the document does not say deceased.
Listed under Freedom of the City on ancestry.

ADDED the apprenticeship of George Rossiter 1727 states father Christopher Rossiter is deceased.

I didn't have this Christopher as a child on my tree. Out of interest, what was the source? Move from St Andrew to St Giles - maybe thats why I deregarded it all those years ago.

Children found so far of Christopher and Jone Rossiter

Christopher bap 15 June 1710 St Giles in the Fields
George bap 29 April 1712 St Andrew, address Devonshire Street
James bap 30 May 1714 St Andrew Holborn

Christopher and Mary (not yet linked to my tree) lived in Grays Inn Road which adjoined Little Grays Inn Lane. Perhaps it was this Christopher who died in 1724.

You have Christopher Rossiter death 1724 as being of Queens Square, but the record states he was of Little Grays  ?   Lane

Could this be Christopher born 1710 son of Christopher and Jone. (spelling as in register)
