  • Notes 
    • Forebears - Hugenots that came over from France in the 1500s. They were silk weavers. She and Henry II were married in the little church on Tower Green inside the walls of the Tower of London. Most of the Baylis family were buried in Tower Hamlets in the church cemetery. Stepney Green and Walthamstowe are on the east side of London and now a slum area. The "works" was also known as the "print works" so it is possible some printing was done. Manufacturer of varnishes and printers? ink in Stepney Green. His factory furnished all the ink used by the London Times, a prominent paper in those days and still is. At first they lived near the "work", then moved to Walthamstowe.
