    Notes 

    • From Mullins family history - General Notes: Solomon II, born in 1736, established himself in Narrow Street as a ship's
      rigger. When Solomon II made his will in 1802, his wife, Rachel, and six of his children -
      Christopher, William Henry, and Seymour; Rachel, Loretta and Carolina - were living. His
      eldest son, Solomon III, had died at the age of 26, and another son had died as a baby. In this
      sixteen-page will, Solomon mentions properties in several locations in Limehouse, including
      his own house, his warehouse, at least one wharf, and buildings rented out to other
      tradespeople. He owned, however, only a third share in the family business; the other two
      thirds being owned by Christopher and William Henry. Solomon II had taken his now-eldest son, Christopher, as a partner in about 1794, and, in the
      trade directories, advertised as HUFFAM & SON. Even after Solomon's next son, William
      Henry, became a third-share partner in the firm, and even after Solomon's death, the
      directories frequently retained the old name, and to the family's twentieth-century descendants
      the firm was still HUFFAM & SON. Christopher clearly re-created the business during the
      1790s, and it was his determination that allowed them, at a time when England's survival
      depended on the efficiency of her fighting ships, to boast themselves 'Riggers to His Majesty's
      Navy'. The Huffam family must have felt they had played an important role in England's naval
      victories over the French. Solomon II, however, did not live to learn of Trafalgar, nor to watch
      the funeral barge as it passed by Limehouse. Nor did Christopher's wife long enjoy the firm's
      success; she died in 1806.
      After their father's death, Christopher and William Henry continued as partners. The firm,
      however, began to fail. In 1811 both brothers were declared bankrupt and each spent some
      months in the King's Bench Prison, between them owing debts of several thousand pounds.
      After William Henry died in 1814, Christopher moved into new premises at 4 Garford Street,
      Limehouse Hole, but, perhaps because the firm could not recover from the disaster of 1811 or
      perhaps because their services were no longer in demand, in 1824 Christopher again
      suffered the humiliation of bankruptcy. He seems to have been spared imprisonment for a
      second time, however, and he managed to continue in trade for another 10 years.
      William Henry and Seymour, were both members of Lloyd's, and Seymour was well known as
      a stockbroker in the 1820s
      Solomon was a rigger to the navy dueing the Napoleonic wars.He managed to rig a Man-OWar
      in one day and King George was said to be so happy that he offered to knight Solomon.
      He owned several tenaments and warehouses in Stepney and Limehouse." 1828- From
