Georgian Starch Maker
« on: Wednesday 07 April 21 18:23 BST (UK) »
My London ancestor Solomon Davis was a starch maker in the early Georgian period. I am trying to gather a little background info. He lived in Wapping, so I suspect he worked with raw materials brought by ship. Also, would the trade have been one with possible Guild membership?
