My great-great-great-grandfather Rhodes Green was born in Burnham and lived and worked in Church Street. On the 1851 census he is listed as a shoemaker (master) and employing 2 men. His sons are shoemakers and his daughters are shoe binders. My friend Jean's ancester is John Tilbury and he is on the same census, he is also living in Church Street as a shoemaker (master).
