    Hello Miles,

    I found a James Cripps a Lighterman recorded in notebooks of Charles Booth (A23), interviewed probably in the late 1890’s does this fit your man?

    Cheers Peter Russell

    I would have to do a little bit of research to check up on this, but I am doubtful that this is the same James Cripps. I believe James William Cripps went by the nickname ‘Will’.

    I have not seen any records of him as a lighterman – he ran a tobacconist on Deptford High Street and later on he became a tea broker/merchant.

    Thanks for your reply, Cripps is a rare name, I would guess, so a lot easier to trace!

    Interesting you mention tea, as some of the Russells went into tea, tea porter, sampler, broker etc.

    Cheers Peter.
