My Great Grandfather, Samuel King, ran a boot and shoe business (as a Cordwainer) from this address in the 19th century. His family home is listed in the 1881 census as The Old House, Market Place, Berkeley.
His father John King (Dob 25.5.1765) was also a Cordwainer in Berkeley in the 18th century.
The King family were residents of Berkeley for many years, John King of Ham (Dob 23.9. 1730) is shown in my personal family records hand-written by Samuel King in 1835 as head of the King family. Thomas King is listed as having a Butchers shop in Berkeley in the late 19th century.
