Abstainando King

Abstainando, the son of Peter and Ann King of Long Alley, was christened in 1764 at St Leonard, Shoreditch.

Duty was paid in 1795 as a silversmith from St James, Clerkenwell for the apprentice indentures of Joseph Story (Grimwade p. 672). The christenings of Mary in 1793, James in 1795, John in 1800 and Elizabeth in 1801, children of Abstainando and Margaret King, were recorded at St James, Clerkenwell.

On the testimony of John Denziloe (Grimwade p. 490) Abstainando King was admitted by patrimony to the Curriers Company in 1803, his late father, Peter, having been a freeman in that Company. He paid Duty in 1803 as a freeman of the Curriers Company for the apprentice indentures of James P Davis (Grimwade p. 485).

His burial in 1833 aged 70 years, late of Red Lion Street, was recorded at St John, Clerkenwell.
