It is interesting to follow the Census records that showed how they moved around the London area for work.
1841 census HO 107/685-16 page 11 has George aged 30, a carpenter living at Chapel Street St Pancras Marylebone London and his wife Sarah aged 20 and daughter Ann 18 month old.
1851 sensus HO 107\1496 page 926-2 has George living at number 3 Union Street St Pancras Marylebone London aged 39 with wife Sarah aged 32 with daughter Ann aged 11, son George aged 7 and son Alfred aged 2. Also in the house were 70 year old carpenter George Smale a carpenter and his wife Elizabeth aged 68.

Next door at number 3 was a Henry HOLMAN aged 34 a plumber and painter with his wife Lucy A. aged 29 and daughter Emily aged 5. In the house with them was a Muriel Brown aged 65 a bag maker, Narriel Brown (daughter) aged 30 a needlewoman, Emma Brown aged 22 a shoemakers forewoman, Joseph Brown aged 4, Hannah Clarke aged 54 a nurse and domestic, Henry Tristram aged 48 an engineer and surveyor with his wife Jane aged 47 and his son Francis aged 32 a house decorator.
I assume Henry Holman may be a younger brother for George and that they were all together to work at a common site.
