My ancestor George Coombs born c1790 was a coachman in London. He tended to live near to major London coach and horse repositories. His addresses were:-

In 1813 he was at 114 Grays Inn Lane Holborn,
1819 at 2 Orange Court Soho,
1821 at Carnaby Street Soho and
1830 at 7 Husband Street, Soho.

There was a coach and horses repository inbetween Carnaby and King Street Soho so I wonder whether he was a domestic or public coachman?

In 1817 he lived at St Marylebone and was described as "Servant" in his daughters baptism.

Out of curiosity for any of you who have coachmen ancestors, were most of them domestic coachmen or were they stage coachmen, ie, carrying passengers?
