Thanks for the response.I had some luck yesterday and found the Abels I was searching for in the 1881 census living in Rotherhithe.Although there was no obvious link to a George, my Beatrice's father Thomas was born in Rotherhithe abt 1841, so could this Thomas be a link in someway to George i.e. sibling, uncle etc.Given that Bermondsey and Rotherhithe are cheek by jowl to each other and Rotherhithe is sometimes classified as Bermondsey, there is a strong posibility of a link.For the record, Thomas's 5 children were all born in Rotherhithe also and were: Thomas, 16. Alfred, 14. John, 4. Emma, 2. Robert, 6 mnths.
