*Ellicott & Taylor are recorded as working in the City of London between 1811 and 1830.
*The Bell Brewhouse may refer to the Bell Brewhouse of Shoreditch High Street (nos. 134-135), which had been in use as a brew house since 1617 – the brewhouse was used by a succession of brewers until sometime after 1811 – in 1817 it was occupied by an ironmonger before becoming the Bell Inn, which continued in use as a public house until 1934.
