Circuitt was probably the Arthur John W. Circuitt recorded in the census of 1881 as living with his mother Mary Circuitt at 65 Gloster Street in London. He was then a bank clerk. There home in fact was above a branch of Lloyds Bank. Later, when he knew JW, he may have worked at the Union Discount Company at 39 Cornhill, London, EC (see JW's note of the address, #13389).
