In 1881 George is unemployed. By 1891 George has abandoned (or was abandoned by) his family and is listed as a Solicitors clerk, pauper, at Homerton St Barnabas, in the Hackney Union Workhouse.

The Hackney Union Workhouse, Sidney Road, was built in 1841 as a workhouse, later becoming Hackney Hospital in 1930. In 1930, the workhouse came under the control of the London County
Council, becoming Hackney Hospital. Services at Hackney were transferred to the nearby Homerton
Hospital which opened in 1987. The final hospital departments closed in 1995 and the site is
awaiting redevelopment. Described as "arguably the worst general hospital psychiatric facility in the
country. The site was cramped & the monolithic workhouse became ill suited to modern medical standards."
