Notes for George COURTAULD
Apprenticed to a Spitalfields silk weaver in 1775, George Courtauld first worked on his own as silk throwster.[1] Between 1785 and 1794 he made a number of visits to America.[1] In 1794 he established his own textile business at Pebmarsh under the name George Courtald & Co.[1] However by 1816 the business was in financial difficulty: that year George's son Samuel took over the business and built it into one of the largest textile businesses in the United Kingdom.[1]
