Capon, George (1811-39)

Capon, George, London, u and cm (1811–39). In 1811 at 7 Theobalds Rd, Red Lion Sq., but by 1813 at 13 Greek St, Soho, at which address he remained until at least 1815. In 1820 he was trading from 1 Nassau St, Middlx Hospital, and in the next year from 388 Oxford St. From this date the trade in the directories is changed from u to cm. In November 1824 he was declared bankrupt but despite this continued to trade from the same address until at least 1826. In 1835 the address is recorded as 54 Poland St, Oxford St and in 1839 as Woodstock St. A John Capon is recorded at 388 Oxford St in the 1825 edition of Kent's London Directory but this may be an error.
