"Company of Spectaclemakers" by Mr Chamberlain

(note on bottom of document - "coal merchant & Lighterman"

http://search.ancestry.co.uk/search/dbextra.aspx?dbid=2052
"Over the centuries, some Livery Companies lost their original trade or craft links, and so it is not at all safe to assume that someone in a Company followed the occupation of that Company: a "Citizen and Spectaclemaker of London" would not necessarily have been a working optician, for example."

He worked as a Wharf Owner in 1840 and resided at Regent Canal. 15

The canal company charged 4d/ton for the delivery of coking coal to the canal bank at the coke ovens, a charge the L&BR were keen to avoid, especially as they were also meeting with obstruction from John Semple who held the leasehold title to the nearest dock and wharves. In December 1840 the L&BR acquired from John Semple and Thomas Hubert their leasehold interest in two wharves and two small basins on the north bank of the canal.
