Eton College shared the St George's Chapel choir from the 1660s to 1868 when the link was broken. Services at St George's chapel always took precedence. James Douglas lodged in Eton as a chorister with a Miss Mitchell, whose brother was 'one of the Lay Clerks at S. Georges and also organist at Eton' and whose father had been coachman to the Lord Provost of Eton (p. 2).
