The Taylor family originated from villages in the Colchester area of Essex. Three generations then lived in Creeksea, a small village on the river Crouch, before Henry Taylor (1845-1887) moved to London in the 1860s to work as a butcher for his uncle in Leadenhall Market. He later became a “fruiterer” and moved south of the river to the Old Kent Road where his namesake son (1868-1938) continued the business, eventually moving to Bermondsey where the family ended up living next door to the Buists.
