Narrative and Notes

George BEEVERS was born in about 1783 near Hemsworth, Yorkshire. He was a 'hostler', that is someone employed in a stable to take care of the horses.

He married Sarah BEETHAM in December 1805 and had six children from 1807 to 1821.

It's possible that they had a seventh child, James who was born deaf and dumb in Brierley, just outside Hemsworth, in 1820/21, but for whom there is no IGI christening record. James was living just outside Mansfield in 1871, coincidentally(?) where George and Sarah's grandson George James BEEVERS moved in the 1850's. As there were very few BEEVERS in Nottinghamshire in 1871 it seems likely that James BEEVERS and George James BEEVERS, who both came from near Hemsworth, were related.

In 1841 he is one of ten people living in a house on Rosemary Lane, Huddersfield. With him are his son Thomas' extended family, his youngest son Henry and a lodger. Thomas and Henry are also hostlers.

Possibly George and his sons were working for Deacon, Harrison & Co.'s Wagons at their premises on Rosemary Lane, Huddersfield, the street on which he lived in 1841. Amongst other destinations, the company provided wagons to London via Barnsley, Sheffield, Chesterfield, Mansfield, Nottingham, Loughborough, Leicester, Market Harborough, Northampton & Dunstable.

George had died by the time of the 1851 census.
