George Basing {bpt. Chieveley October 1793} set up a saddlery business in Mansion House Street (later 6 Market Place) Newbury probably in the 1820's. His younger sons John and Richard were employed in the shop making saddles and harnesses, the eldest son George went to London, became a timber merchant and died in Isleworth in 1873. In the 1881 census James George Mathews (son of George's daughter Martha) was working in Chute, Wiltshire as a harness maker. (He was brought up in Newbury and went to St Bartholomew's Grammar School).  At the height of the horse-drawn era James had his own shop in the Broadway. When the motor car took over from horses, James retired and in 1927 bought No. 1 Donnington Square and the businesses were amalgamated at 46 Cheap Street as Basing and Mathews. The last directory entry is in 1963, by 1965 it was Poulter, estate agents
