Hi Victoria There was one Jas Barry: Pg198 Under the heading PEWTERERS: Jas Barry 46 Portpool Lane, Haton Gdns Now it could be he was a watchmaker later on as Hatton Gardens is the right place to be found in for this occupation and others along the same lines....Barometer Maker's, Jewellers and so on. Much happiness Debi

Hi Debi Thank you for your generous offer. This is a bit of a long shot, but I am wondering if there is any entry under Hair Dressers/Perfumers or Hair Manufacturers for Edward KEY I am not sure when he left Northampton to set up business in London, but would be very grateful for a look-up. Many thanks in advance Helen
