And London metropolitan archives have his insurance records in 1790/1. (These can be brief but very interesting)

Thanks you for your information on Andrews New London Directory could you tell me where I would be able to view this information. Thanks

Thanks also for the London Metropolitan archives insurance records. For some reason i couldn't open your link. Would you be able to tell me how I could locate this information. Thanks

I tried googling both of the above but couldn't come up with anything. The website I mainly use is Ancestry are there others anyone would suggest for early London records ?

Google “London metropolitan archives”. When the choices come up it’s the one below the Wikipedia entry. Select “search online” in the box. Try this link https://www.cityoflondon.gov.uk/things- ... earch.aspx

Edit, I tried a screenshot, but it won’t load for some reason.

Another interesting site is http://www.londonlives.org (which is related to the LMA) but there is another mention of insurance for him there that doesn’t show on the LMA site.


There are OVENS listed in the livery company apprenticeships too. (And a JOVENS, which I am imagining with a Y sound, which then becomes lost)

http://www.londonroll.org/

Note, sometimes a trade is listed under an unlikely livery company.
