George Baskerville
« on: Saturday 27 April 19 19:23 BST (UK) »
My great great grandfather George Baskerville was born in Bristol around 1810.  He lived most of his life there but for some reason he moved for a few years to London - Northside, Shoreditch.  He was there during the 1851 census and my great grandfather Frederick George was on the census.  I know they were in Bristol in 1849 living in Ashley Place and by 1856 he was back in Bristol and was a Beer Retailer.  When he was in London he was a cabinet maker.  I would be interested if there was any reason why someone from Bristol would move to London for a few years between 1849 and 1856.  Was there a great need for cabinet makers??  What was Shoreditch like back then.  Any information would be greatly appreciated.
