I thought this general information about Woolwich and Deptford was worth looking at.

Also in The Times of October 11th 1785, I came across some further information about Deptford:

"........the killing and curing of cattle for sea stores for the use of the navy, commenced yesterday for the first time at the new Victualling office at Deptford."

The Times, November 4th, 1785:

" .... The workmen are now busied at the new Victualling Office at Deptford, in baking biscuit, and curing salted provisions for the use of the navy, and the British garrisons abroad. ...."
