In Affectionate Remembrance of

Frederick John Taylor
Who died Feb 7 1871 aged 76 years

Frederick John Taylor (1795 – 7 February  1871)

Frederick was born in London and was the son of clerk John Fordham Taylor and his wife Hannah. He was baptised on 2 April1795 at St. Giles’ Cripplegate Church.  In November 1810 he was articled to solicitor William Archer of Hatton Garden for six years and later worked as a solicitor/attorney.

In 1851 Frederick was lodging at 24 Green Street and was recorded as being a widow.  Also living with him at Green Street was his niece Mary Anne Rayment (1816-1882).  On 1 June 1852 he married a  Mary Anne Rayment at St. Nicholas Cole Abbey in London, which presumably was the same person.  In 1861 they were both lodging with William and Anna Cowper at 16 Green Street.  The 1861 census documents Frederick as an ‘attorney and solicitor’ and Mary as ‘niece of Mr Taylor’. He died at Green Street and his executor was ‘Mary Anne Rayment the niece the sole executrix’.

Mary Rayment died in January 1882 in Crouch End.  Her probate records recorded her as a spinster and she left an estate valued at £14,276 0s and 6d (£1.2m at 2019 values).
