Apparently George Strang - Strong - Stronge, the tailor, was a busy as well as a successful man... the reports of his activities as gleaned from the Manor Court Rolls (following) and his will seem to indicate that he didn't give much time to taking care of the demands made upon him by the manor community; but at the same time indicate that he did serve on jury duty and that he was able to establish a pretty good estate for a mere tailor.
