Steel's Grocers - a Memory of Bury St Edmunds.
In 1861 my Great, Great, Great Grandfather Charles Frederick Whiskin worked for the Steel family in their grocer's shop situated in the Butter Market. Charles came originally from Black Friars in London and was born in 1832. He learnt his trade from the Steels and went on to own his own shop in Aylesbury Buckinghamshire which he ran with his wife Susannah.
