Nigel Tattersfield (email August 2021:) For much of his early career Mutlow was in partnership with Thomas Jones Woodman and their trade card is present at Heal 99.183. From at least 1803 Mutlow traded on his own (although occasionally collaborating with Woodman) at 13 Russell Court; see Kent's Directory of London for 1803 and Sun Fire Office records, LMA, 1809 onwards. Although the date of Mutlow's death is usually recorded as 1826, it probably took place in early June 1827; will at National Archives, PROB 11/1727/342, proved 27 June 1827.
