Grimwood, George brewery


George Grimwood seems to have been a Maltster and beer brewer in Haughley for most of his life (about 60 years). According to census returns (see below) he had started malting some time before 1841 and lived at Malting House for several years. Later he lived in Old Street and the Street (possibly same site?) and was retailing his beer from these premises. He probably ceased trading sometime before 1900.
