Greenwich and Deptford Gas Company

A scheme which never came to fruition. It is however one that can be seen to have a connection to the later and successful Greenwich and Deptford Company. No date, probably 1830s.

Those involved were:

Sir William Beatty: Governor of Greenwich Hospital. FRS. Beatty was Nelson’s doctor who ministered to him at his death at Trafalgar.

George Barrett: Lived Circus Street, Greenwich. Possibly the water colour painter. The son of a more famous, Irish, father.

Adam Gordon: Deptford shipbuilder.

Thomas Broadbent, J.W. Paris, Richard Edwards, Samuel Gordon, George Scott
