Cullimore, Daniel

Bath, Somerset & London; upholsterer, cabinet maker and furniture broker (b.c.1783-d.1863; fl.1799–51)

Cullimore was apprenticed on 11 October 1799 to William Evill, an upholsterer in Bath and by 1819 was listed on his own account in Bath at 9 Orchard Street. 

He was in London by 1822 at 2 John's Place, Gray's Inn Road (1822–24) when purchasing insurance cover of £300, half this sum being in respect of stock, utensils and goods in trust. In 1824 he moved to 22 Ray Street, Clerkenwell and on 8 April of that year purchased new insurance cover of £600 of which £350 was in respect of stock, utensils and goods in trust [London Metropolitan Archive (LMA), Sun Insurance archive]. He was still at this address in 1827.

By 1835 he had moved once again, this time to 63 North Place, Gray's Inn Road where he remained until his death in  October 1863, aged 82. [London Post Office Directory, 1845; 1851, 1861 census;].  

Possibly the same Daniel Cullimore, who was recorded as foreman upholsterer to Mr Stolworthy, of Hatton Garden. Cullimore was called as a witness to the theft of a silver spoon by James Morris, also in the employ of Stolworthy, from a customer, Robert Shaw, attorney of Old Bond Street in 1818. Morris was found guilty and transported [Old Bailey Online].
