  General Notes:

His middle name comes from his step-grandfather: James Marrion.

We don't know why George Wagland moved to Crayford and then Dartford. However there were well-known silk printing businesses in both towns which is probably where he worked.

Augustus Applegath, a prolific inventor of the time, founded the print works at Crayford in 1826 and perfected the printing of fabrics using curved copper plates rather than traditional hand blocks. In 1843, it became known as David Evans and Co Ltd of Crayford, producing the finest silks for the likes of many famous clients including Liberty's Elizabeth Emmanuel, Holland and Holland, David Allen and even Sir Elton John before closing its doors 158 years later in 2001. During its time it was also known as the Dover Road Silk and Calico Print Works.

In 1865 James Keymer set up a fabric printing works on the banks of the River Darent, adjacent to what is now Bullace Lane. In 1910, the name Dartford Print Works was officially adopted. The firm was taken over by Messrs. Warner and Sons in 1927 and continued in production until 1939. It was about 5-10 minutes walk from where George Wagland was living in 1910.
