George Borthwick, born 1760 lived in London.He is described as 'silversmith' on his daughter Elizabeth's marriage.He was married three times,Susannah Arthur(St Leonard's Shoreditch 1804) Susannah Rice(st Ann's Blackfriars 1819) and Elizabeth Pool (St Mary Magdalene Bermondsey 1822) .He died in 1837.We have quite a lot of information about his descendants but rumour only about his antecedents. My interest is that he is my ggg grandfather. His Daughter Elizabeth being my GG grandmother (daughter of Susannah Rice).I am struggling to make headway.Old family papers show him to have been descended from Borthwicks in Scotland...his father or grandfather was also George and had several wives including a Miss Chalmers... also someone (father or grandfather ) was a barber surgeon.Does any one have any thoughts?I would also add that the Cornell family are closely involved with the Borthwicks;Ebenezer Cornell having witnessed several marriages and Sarah Cornell living with her 'niece' Susannah Borthwick.This is all in the same era.Other Borthwicks also get mentioned as witnesses at marriages but i cannot link them.
