    • Name George Farmiloe 
      Born 9 Feb 1799  Clerkenwell, Middlesex Find all individuals with events at this location  [3, 4
      • William Pitt the Younger was Prime Minister. To finance increasing government needs for finance, Pitt had resorted to the creation of myriad new taxes, including a general income tax and the tax on clocks and watches which had so devastated the trade in Clerkenwell, and which must have affected George's father.
        Just south of the family home, one of London's great markets teemed with human and animal activity. Smithfield, the market for live cattle, market covered three acres. A large number of the animals were slaughtered in West Smithfield, the meat being sold to the butchers in Newgate Street. With the increasing population, the place had become increasingly unsuitable for a live cattle market.

      • George and his brothers were orphans after the death of his father in late 1807 or early 1808. His father made no will, and his sister Ann took out letters of administration and became the boys' legal guardian. Ann's second husband, William Western (qv), was a timber merchant and of some substance. There is a tradition that he lent George the sum of £25 to help him start in business.

        The apprenticeship was granted in consideration of 5 shillings; how did 13 year old George find this sum?

      living in the parish during a contoversy regarding "extortion" by parish constables 
      • The Times reported a complaint of "extortion" by parish constables of persons summoned to attend the Court Leet of the Manor of St. John, Clerkenwell, to be chosen as one of the jury. A constable was alleged to have said: " tip me a shilling, and I will answer to your name".
      disturbance 1833  Clerkenwell, Middlesex Find all individuals with events at this location  [22
      in Cold Bath Fields 
      • About 500 constables were called out to control a political demonstration held in Cold Bath Fields, a few hundred yards to the north-west of St John Street. The mob threw stones; three constables were stabbed and one killed. An inquest was held into the death, at which the jury perversely and contrary to the evidence returned a verdict of "justifiable homicide". The government attempted to place the responsibility on the Police Commissioners. It was widely acknowledged that the inquest verdict and the government's behaviour was unfair. The reputation of the police force benefited from the reaction. The Metropolitan Police Act, introduced at the instigation of the Home Secretary, Robert Peel, had been enacted in 1829. The newly created force was generally disliked and distrusted until the episode in Cold Bath Fields; after that, parishes outside the Metropolitan district asked to be taken within it.

      • The 1841 Census shows George (aged 42) living at this address. His occupation was Lead Merchant. His household consisted of his wife Elizabeth(40) and seven sons Thomas (15), William (13), Lewis (7), Henry (5), James (3) and John (1). They had two resident servants: Mary Heaney (20) and Penelope Rhodes (15). This was a working district; neighbours included a Coachbuilder, Printer and a Cordwainer. The Golden Lion Inn was next door.

        The author has not yet discovered the location of George's home between 1841 and 1871. Some time during this period, he moved to Islington. As a residential quarter, Clerkenwell had been in decline since the late 18th century. Slums developed in Clerkenwell. The first serious attempt to provide better homes for the poorer classes was made in the 1860s. George Peabody, an American banker, donated the enormous sum of half a million pounds to the City of London. The funds were devoted to the construction of "Peabody" flats. One of these blocks was built not far from St John Street. George witnessed during his life enormous changes to the shape and what is now called the "infrastructure" of London. Many new buildings, roads, railways and sewers were constructed. The Metropolitan Railway opened in 1863. The first underground railway in the world, it was designed to ease traffic congestion in the streets above. It ran from Paddington to Farringdon, just to the east of St John Street.

        GEORGE RICHARDSON . I live in Lansdown-place, London-field, Hackney. On the 4th of December I was called to examine the premises, and I found the lead pipe had been cut from the water-butt—about four feet of pipe and the ball cock were taken away—they were the property of George Farmiloe, my landlord, and were fixed—I saw the pipe which the officer brought fitted to what was left, and I think there is not a doubt that it came from there.
        SARAH HARRISON . I am servant to Mrs. Amelia Lovell, of Lansdownplace. At half-past seven o'clock in the morning of the 4th of December I came down stairs—the water was running away, and the brass tap had been cut off—we missed two knives and forks and a beer-tap—the police-man brought the articles—they are Mrs. Lovell's.
        ROBERT PAINE (police-constable N 247.) I was on duty on the 4th of December at half-past three o'clock in the morning, and met the prisoners about one hundred and fifty yards from the prosecutor's house—as soon as they saw me they turned and went back—I overtook them and asked what business they had there—they said they had been out drinking—I found this pipe on Williams, and these other things on Brown.

        MR. DICKIE conducted the Prosecution.
        ELIZA NORMAN . I am a servant at Mr. Farmiloe's, Tillery-house, Park-road, Holloway—one Friday night, about the end of May, at half-past seven, I went all over the house and saw that it was properly fastened up—I looked particularly at the windows, they were shut—about half-past five next morning I heard the police talking to Master, and I went down stairs and missed four coats; two from the hall and two from the dining room.
        RICHARD HARRINGTON (Policeman, S 282). About half-past three on the morning of 23rd May, I was on duty in Park-road, Holloway, and saw the two prisoners standing on the foot-path—they saw me, and directly walked away down the Park road towards Holloway, and turned to the right along the Holloway-road, and again turned to the right into the Camden-road—I saw no more of them for about ten minutes or a quarter of an hour—I then saw them standing by Tillery-house—I walked up towards them, and they walked down to meet me—I passed them and saw they were followed by another constable behind—I spoke to him, and we both followed them down the Park-road to the Holloway-road—we met Sergeant Gould—I then went back to the Park-road immediately, and found the garden gate at Tillery-house open, and saw footmarks on the mould in the garden, and on looking into the area I saw these four coats (produced) lying there—I waited there till Gould came, and then rang the servant up, and examined the house—there were marks on the catch of the front parlour window sill, which looked as if a knife had been used—I afterwards compared the marks on the garden mould with the boots of the prisoners, and found them to correspond.
        COURT. Q. When did you compare them? A. The prisoners were taken into custody about nine in the morning, and I made the comparison about eleven.
        Cross-examined by MR. BESLEY. Q. Were they ordinary boots such as men in their class of life wear? A. Yes—it was about a quarter-past four when I first noticed anything on the flower-beds—I did not know the house had been entered then—I called Gould's attention to the footmarks when he came, and to the coats—there were eight or ten different marks close together of both right and left boots—it was a fine morning—it had not been raining during the night—Mr. Farmiloe came down—I did not ask him to look at the marks—I can't say whether I told him there were any marks or not—I could not say whether any one else did in my hearing; not on the mould.
        HENRY TAYLOR (Policeman, N 196). I was on duty in the Caledonian-road on Saturday morning, 23rd May, and saw the prisoners coming out of the Camden-road into the Caledonian-road about half-past three—I followed them, and afterwards saw them come out of the garden gate of Tillery-house on to the pavement—that was about a quarter to four—I had ample opportunity of seeing them—I had seen them before, and knew them before—I then followed them into the Holloway-road, and met police constable 282 S—we both followed the prisoners to Holloway-gate, and I took Ayres to the station—Pearson was taken at the same time by the other constable they gave their names and addresses, and as they had nothing, they were allowed to go.
        Cross-examined. Q. What distance were you off, when you saw them come out of the garden gate? A. About 150 yards I should think—I did not see them go in—I did not go back to the house till half-past nine—I was there with Herrington—I did not see Mr. Farmiloe there.
        ROBERT GOULD (Police-sergeant, N 40). About four in the morning of 23rd May, I saw the prisoners in Holloway-road, being followed by the last witness—they were taken to the station-house—I asked them what they had been doing—Ayres said he was only out for a walk, for the benefit of his health, and he had called on the other to take a walk with him—we took their names and addresses—I previously knew where Ayres lived—I went to Tillery-house after that, and saw the footmarks on the mould—I also saw some dirt on the iron railings in front of the kitchen window, and saw the coats in the area—I also found marks of some nails on the window sill of the drawing room, as if somebody had placed their feet there—the catch of the window was pushed back, but the window was down—I called Mr. Farmiloe up, and we examined the place—I found some gravel from the garden on the cushions of the chairs in the drawing room—it was easy to get to the drawing room window from the garden—about nine o'clock that morning; I took the prisoners into custody, on suspicion of breaking into a house at Holloway—they said it was not them, they knew nothing about it—I took a boot from each of the prisoners and compared it with the footmarks on the mould—I made an impression alongside of the footprints, and they made the same impressions—on the window sill there was a mark caused by some nails—several nails in one of the boots corresponded with these marks on the window sill.
        Cross-examined. Q. Do yon mean to swear that there was any identity between the marks on the window-sill and those nails in particular? A. Yes; there were seven nails, of the four on the outside the mark was very perfect, but not so distinct with the three inner nails—the nails made an indentation on the paint; there was a dew falling in the morning—I called Mr. Farmiloe's attention to those marks on the window-sill—Herrington was present; it was about 6 o'clock, or a little after—there were five or six impressions—they had been made by two persons—Ayres showed me a paper showing that he was in attendance at St. Bartholomew-hospital, and he said the doctor had ordered him out for the benefit of his health.
        MR. DICKIE. Q. Was there anything on the heel of one of the boots which attracted your attention? A. There was a half plate on one which made a smooth mark, and a deep dent, as if the person had trod mote on one side than the other.
        GEORGE FARMILOE . I live at Tillery-house, Park-road, Holloway—on Saturday morning, 23d May, between 3 and 4 o'clock, I heard the sash of a window either go down or up; I cannot say which—I did not rise at that time—the police came about 5 o'clock, and gave me some information, and we missed four coats.
        Cross-examined. Q. Was it light when you heard the noise? A. Yes; day was breaking—I cannot say the exact time; it may have been after half-past 3—I found four policemen there when I went down—I can't say whether anything was said to me about the marks then—they came again later, but I did not see them—two of them came at 5 o'clock, and directed my attention to the marks on the window, and on the chairs—on the following day they showed me the print of the mails on the wood—there were several nails—I don't remember whether Gould said there were nine; I cannot be positive.
        MR. BESLEY (to ROBERT GOULD) Q. Have you ever said the number of nails was nine? A. No; I am positive it was seven I said.

      • The 1881 Census shows George living with Thomas and Lewis, Elizabeth having died since the previous census. His niece Emma Pearson has now joined the household as Housekeeper. Her place of birth is given as Staffordshire; she was probably a daughter of a sibling of Elizabeth. His grand-daughter Annie (12) was living at the house, probably just a coincidence with her stay coinciding with the Census. There were still two women servants: Sarah Tomkins (51) was Cook from South Wales and Rebecca Abbott (25) was Housemaid from Huntingdonshire. His son John and his family lived next door at no.47.

        Neighbours included a Map Mounter, an Artist's Colourman and a Commercial Traveller.

        Large villas in Islington were replaced in the late 1890s by small terraced houses, mainly the homes of artisans and clerks., served by "an army of small tradesmen" as characterised in "The Diary of a Nobody" by Mr Porter who strove to maintain a front of gentility ["Diary of a Nobody" by G W Grossmith, 1892].
      Court case 20 Jan 1886  London Find all individuals with events at this location  [38
      • The Times reports the case of Ketch v Farmiloe and Another heard in the Queen's Bench Division (Sittings at Nisi Prius) before Mr Baron Huddleston and a Common Jury.
        Mr Ketch was bringing an action to recover damages for personal injury. Mr Lane appeared for the Plaintiff and Mr Anderson QC and Mr Spokes for the Defendants.
        The Plaintiff had a shop in Dalston Lane. By accident a plate glass window broke in November 1884 and Mr Ketch made a claim on his insurers, the Plate Glass Asurance company. Two workmen, Saunders and Ottway, came to the shop to fix the glass. It seemed to be too large for them to manage; Ketch helped them to place the glass in the shop. the glass in the process slipped from its webbing harness, smashed and Ketch's hand was severely cut. He was laid up for over 14 weeks.
        In establishing the Plaintiff's case, Counsel was obliged to call Mr Farmiloe and Saunders. Mr Farmiloe gave evidence that he had contrated to glaze the Plaintiff's shop with Messrs Freeman & Trottman (whom it seemed had been engaged for the work by the Assurance Company). Saunders carried out the work under a sub-contract with Farmiloe and Ottway was employed by Saunders. Saunder's evidence showed that he had done the work as Farmiloe's sub-contractor and there was no relationship of master and servant between them.
        At this stage, Mr Lane said he could carry the case no further and Mr Baron Huddleston directed the jury to find for the Defendants.
      Will 28 May 1890  [39
      • He made the following legacies:"Plate, jewellery, furniture, linen, china, glass, books, pictures (the two pictures of myself and my late wife belong to my son George) wine, and all other household goods..also my horse, carriage and harness to my sons Thomas, George, William, Lewis, James and John (direction: if Thomas elects to buy Tillerye House, may buy whole or part of such goods at valuation).
