Number 46 Holland Street 1881 – George Butler, Cab Proprietor

Please note Caldwell Street was called Holland Street in 1881 – see here.

Kelly’s Directory 1881 tells us that at 46 Holland street lived George Butler, a Cab Proprietor (this was a person that hired out horse drawn vehicles, and may drive the vehicle himself, he also carried out the duties of a livery stable manager)

Expanding on the info taken from Kelly’s Directory and looking at the Census we find out a little more…

Due to the fact that the Census for 1881 for this part of the street is damaged I have had to examine the census from 1871 and 1891 to see if he is listed on that. Mr Butler is not on the 1871 Census but luckily he appears along with his family on that of 1891.
