John Maberly and his brother Stephen were born into a family of leatherworkers; they also became curriers, preparing hides for use.
Sometime around 1760 they set up a curriers business in Little Queen Street, Holborn, an extension of Longacre, which runs east from Leicester Square and was a well-known centre of luxury trades.
A coachpainting business was also established at the same address.
1780 the premises were burnt down in the Gordon Riots after which the coachpainting business moved across town to Welbeck Street in Marylebone, and the curriers business to nearby Castle Street.
