In 1791 he insured his house only for £400 and in the following year arranged cover for £900 which included his house, utensils and six tenements. In 1801 the sum insured was £600 of which £360 was for utensils and stock. By 1805 cover had been reduced to £540 of which stock and goods in trust accounted for a mere £50 [London Metropolitan Archive (LMA), Sun MS, 5 August 1791, ref. 587259; vol. 389, ref. 602214; vol. 419, ref. 721169; vol. 434, ref. 777194].
