Hi -- I would be interested in keeping in touch, as I believe my Firth's connect to the George, the corn porter, that you mentioned.

My ancestor was John, who might be a brother to George? John was also a corn porter (basically lifting heavy sacks of grain -- not an easy job). I have his father as George also. I have not been able to verify everything given to my by a distant cousin.
