Bernard Elliott came from Symondsbury in Dorset and settled in Guernsey in the early 1850s. In 1855, he was convicted of offering meat for sale that was unfit for consumption, and was deprived of his stall. He appears to have continued working as a butcher, as he gave his occupation as butcher in 1861 census.
