Hi, I have discovered that one of my ancestors was a printer in 1887 in London. I would like to find out where he worked, ie newspapers, but don't know how to find this out. Has anyone got any suggestions for me. Thanks Pat

Was he an employee, or an employer?

On which type of document is the info?

Patricia

Patricia Report 17 Oct 2012 11:40

Hi and thanks for replying.
His name was:
Jacob Taylor and he was an employee. I'm not two sure when he was born but probably between 1860 - 70
Many thanks

As an employee he could have worked for many different companies during his working life.

From Newpapers, to book printers, to a myriad of other print firms.

I personally have a few 'printers' in my family and they moved about a bit (albeit in London) so I would imagine that they often moved with the work to be found.

Even in the newspapers, there were jobbing printers (rather like journeymen in other trades) who were employed by the day or week.

I think unless you are very lucky, you will have a job on your hands tying down where he worked.

There are archives about the London College of printing. There was a museum at one point.

I was waiting for confirmation before proceeding Mel,
It was a suggestion that this is her guy but wildly out from the age she gave.

I'm so embarrassed. I had no idea that you had gone to all the trouble to find out all that information for me and I'm so sorry for not looking on the board again. I recently posted another message and it wasn't until I was prompted to read the replies that I saw all the information you had taken the trouble to find out for me. It's definitely the right person so I have some more information to add to my tree now. I expect you are not following this thread anymore but if by chance you are, I just want to again, thank you LadyKira and Mel Fairy Godmother. Now all I need to know is where and how did you find out all that info. Thank you so much
