Sainsbury Family; Sainsbury's grocer
George Sainsbury was the second surviving child of John James and Mary Ann Sainsbury. He was born above the Drury Lane Store, though the family moved to Kentish Town before his first birthday. Joining the firm c.1886 he became responsible for the firm's 'office and counting house', together with butter and cheese, cold storage poultry and game and 'despatch' (distribution). His neat signature is visible on the early company accounts.
