  • One of Robert Sayle’s sons, George, worked in London as the Manager of the London operation and whilst there attended the same Chapel as George Doggett who was a member of a Cambridge family. On George Doggett’s return to Cambridge he was quoted in the 1881 census as Warehouse Manager and this was with the Robert Sayle store. It appears that the family remained in the employment of Robert Sayle as in the above picture, taken in 1920, there is a G H Doggett who was both a Director and Head of Counting House when the store became a Limited Company.
    This information was passed to me by Mr David Burbridge from Melbourn who is still in touch with the descendants of the Doggett family.
