GUEST, Joseph Thomas (Grimwade p.530)

Postby MCB » Mon Jul 30, 2012 7:09 am

He was christened the son of Thomas and Margaret of St Bride’s parish at St Andrew, Holborn in 1778.
Christenings of children of Joseph and Ann Guest were recorded at St Andrews, Holborn in 1803 when their address was Baldwin’s Buildings, in 1804 Leather Lane, in 1806-7 Red Lion Street and 1809-1812 again Leather Lane.
Indentures were signed in 1806 by John, son of Thomas Pearl, victualler of Church Street, St Giles, to be his apprentice as a silversmith.
Joseph and Ann appear to have had 15 children in all. Further christening records at various London churches show their address as Cock Lane in 1814, as Moore Street in 1816 and 1818, at St James, as 4 Crown Street in 1820 and as 12 Rose Street in 1822-24; all records 1814-24 refer to Joseph as a silversmith. Grimwade records only the last of these addresses in this period.
No further information has been found.

"At a public execution outside the Old Bailey in February 1807, the crowd was so great that the resulting crush killed twenty-seven people, one being 16-year-old William Guest, the son of Thomas Guest:

Detail recorded at the inquest:

William Guest, deceased, a boy sixteen years old, was recognised by his father, Mr. Thomas Guest, silversmith, No.67, Red Lion-street, Holborn, who stated, that the youth drank tea with him on Sunday evening, when witness heard him say he was going to see the execution. Witness saw him dead in the sailor's ward, St. Bartholomew's Hospital. The deceased was an apprentice to Jackson and Thompson, Engravers, Gutter-lane, Cheapside."
