William Scrivens (1772-1824)

From Historical Hastings


William Scrivens married into the firm that ran the Hastings Old Bank, gaining a partnership as a result[1]. His marriage produced two sons, William and George. William went into law as a career and George followed his fathers footsteps in banking.

Purchasing the Mill Field in 1804 from William Green for £525, he subsequently sold it on to his brother-in-law, Rowe Carswell in 1810 for £600[1]
