Giles Grendey was born in Gloucestershire in 1693 and, aged 16, came to London as an apprentice to William Sherborne. His first commission was for Richard Hoare of Barn Elmes. The 'Cabinet-Maker and Chair-Maker' Giles Grendey, who was described in 1740 as 'A great Dealer in the Cabinet Way', carried out a considerable export trade from Aylesbury House in St. John's Square. He was appointed Upper Warden of the Joiner's Company in 1747 and its Master in 1766. His son-in-law, John Cobb, was granted a court appointment as cabinet-maker to George III.
