He's listed in the 1841 census at the 2 Upper Ashby Street in the address. It appears that at this time he is living with his mother and siblings. There is a seventeen year old Benjamin who is also listed as a jeweller and a fifteen year old aprentice whose name I can't make, Frederick Kirt (sp?).

The indexer listed his name as George Ellrot which of course makes him very difficult to look up.
