George, Thomas (1791-1823)

George, Thomas, Totnes, Devon, cm and u (1791–1823). In 1791 took out insurance cover of £400 of which £350 was in respect of stock and goods in trust. By 1794 the business was in financial difficulties and in February of that year he assigned his estate and effects to Samuel Curtis and Richard Cole in trust for the benefit of his creditors. A Thomas George shown trading as a cm in Totnes in 1823 may be the same man or possibly his son. [D; GL, Sun MS vol. 374, ref. 580799; Exeter Flying Post, 27 January 1794]
