    According to Thomas Taber,Jr., John's oldest brother's poetry book, the family was living in Camberwell in 1822, while the family jewelry shop was located in Clerkenwell. The address 33 Bartholomew Close was that of Thomas, Sr's brother, George Taber. John was baptized at age 7, just before the family emigrated to America. Susan Groom Taber's death notice in the N.Y. Herald, 1854, identified the family as being from Camberwell, thus the suspicion is that the Thomas Taber Jewelry Shop was in Clerkenwell, while the family lived in Camberwell.
