Howard F Gotts

Prisoners of War in Malaya
I have researched what happened to four Gotts Prisoners of War following the fall of Singapore:
William Albert 1053 #083
William Albert died in the First Battle of Ypres in 1914 after 14 days in Flanders. I have been able to track what happened and where he was when he was killed.
Hubert 3948 Gotts #071 aka Frederick George Merritt (actor)
George (2935) Gotts of Cawston #071
In a book entitled ‘List of bankrupts 1786-1806’ by William Smith, this entry appears:
“1803 George Gotts, Merchant and maltster, Cawston, Norfolk”.
This gives us George’s occupation, location and situation. Assuming we have the right George, he would have been 21, quite young for being bankrupt?
