The 1851 census shows that the Cummins family were resident at the George Inn in Dymock. The licence of the George Inn was held by Hannah Cummins, aged 48. Her husband, James Cummins – aged 50, is listed as a farmer of 170 acres. They had a son, aged 12, who was also named James. It is likely that the James Cummings of 1876 was their son – aged 37. James Cummings senior would have been 72 in 1876.
It is known that the Wesleyans used one of the rooms in the George for their assembly.
The Gloucestershire licensing book of 1891 does not mention the George Inn.
