George England (organ builder)
George England (fl. 1740–1788), was an English organ-builder.
He married the daughter of Richard Bridge (another organ-builder) and was the father of George Pike England (1765?–1814).
George England built the organs of:
- St Stephen Walbrook 1760
- St Matthew Friday Street 1762
- St George's Church, Gravesend 1764
- St Michael and All Angels' Church, Ashton-under-Lyne 1770
- St Michael Queenhithe 1779 (in conjunction with Hugh Russell)
- St Mary Aldermary 1781 (in conjunction with Hugh Russell)
- St Mildred, Poultry
- German Lutheran Church, Goodman's Fields
- Chapel of Dulwich College
- St Margaret Moses
- St Alfege Church, Greenwich
‘These organs were remarkable for the brightness and brilliancy of their chorus’ (Hopkins); that of St. Stephen's, Walbrook, a fine specimen of England's work, was repaired by Gray in 1825, rebuilt 1872, and considerably enlarged later by William Hill & Sons.
