Although I have found reference in the relevant census, and the business employed a lot of people, I haven't found any other details about this maternal ancestor or the business. Does anyone know of any records about the business?
Can find no reference to him in directories as a bicycle manufacturer, but Graces guide (https://www.gracesguide.co.uk/Samuel_Stanton) does list him as having a receiving order against him in 1888, stating that he was a former bicycle manufacturer , now a machinist. There are entries in the directories in the 1880s as a machinist at 107 aston road
