George was known in later life as a "Fringe Maker", 54 Wood St, moving to 120 Newgate St. City of London.

There is a recorded entry in the Barbers' Livery Guild Court Minutes which refers to George Hyatt's Admission to the Barbers' Company:

Monthly Court, 4 November 1817, George Hyatt of Newgate Street in the City of London, Fringe Manufacturer was admitted on the Freedom of the Company by Redemption and was sworn.

As he entered the Guild 'by Redemption' this means he will not have served an Apprenticeship; rather, he will have been introduced to the Company, accepted by the Court and asked to pay a fee to join. There are traditionally three ways to join a Livery Company, the third being by patrimony, that is, being introduced by one's father.

Note from Joy Thomas, Barbers' Guild Archivist: ...[The entries in the Quarterage Books of fees are blank, he did not pay any of his dues to the Guild except his initial entry fee (the amount owing in total was Đ8 5s 6d from 1850, and is worth Đ6,634.00 today). I suppose what we can surmise from these entries is that George Hyatt was not a very active member of the Company. He doesn't appear to have paid his Quarterage even once and, at least from 1822, the Company don't seem to have been able to find him. It says something about his Company that they continued to enter his name in the Quarterage Books for thirty years...! Interestingly, George Hyatt's entries were definitely not unusual. Many of the remarks by the side of entries were along the lines of 'Gone' which makes me think the Company were at a loss as to an efficient way to collect their fines. Why would George Hyatt have become a member if he was so uninterested in the Company? Becoming Free of a Livery Company allowed you to claim Freedom of the City which could be of great benefit to individuals working in the City. For example, until the 1850s retail traders within the City had to be Free of the City. You need a connection to a Company to be admitted to it; he might well have joined the Barbers through the easy introduction of his friend, Nicholas Bradbee. However, perhaps I should give Hyatt the benefit of the doubt and suggest that he may have intended to have more connection with the Company but life events made this impossible]...

The Hyatt's, Bradbee's and Whiffin's were all very close and in the same business, originally from the whiffin side by marriage, taken over by the Hyatt family in this generation.

It is of note that around 1825 the family appears to be converted to become "irvingites". The Catholic Apostolic Church was a religious movement which originated in England around 1831 and later spread to Germany and the United States. While often referred to as Irvingism, it was neither actually founded nor anticipated by Edward Irving. The Catholic Apostolic Church was organised in 1835 under the lead of apostles. The last apostle died in 1901 after which the membership gradually declined.

Within the movement itself, the name Catholic Apostolic Church referred to the entire community of Christians who follow the Nicene Creed. Those outside the movement, however, used the name to refer to the results of the ecumenical prayer movement in the early 19th century, accompanied by what were regarded by the said movement as outpourings of spiritual gifts in Great Britain (and elsewhere, though swiftly repressed by the local church authorities in other countries).
