Paul, Robert (1805-39)

Paul, Robert, Market Pl., Saffron Walden, Essex, cm, u and ironmonger (1805–39). The nearness to Audley End house, Essex resulted in patronage by the 2nd and 3rd Lords Braybrooke. The first instance of this was in 1805. Paul's billhead stated his trade as ‘Ironmonger, Brazier, Tin-Plate Worker & Upholsterer’. Small sums were paid by Lord Braybrooke for upholstery work of a modest character. [D; Essex RO, D/DBy/A63/10, A361, A376]
