WHITFORD, Cattern (Grimwade p.388)

Postby buckler » Thu Mar 10, 2011 12:49 pm

7 th April 1774 - Catherine Whitford entered (as Cattern Whitford ) a mark as bucklemaker at Sugar Loaf Court , Salisbury Court, Fleet Street. (E2/p15Ab) She was probably the widow or daughter of William Whitford (0), a silver bucklemaker with a mark or marks in one of the lost registers.
Fined for substandard silver buckles in the mid 1760’s, William was listed as a bucklemaker at Salisbury Court in the Parliamentary Report 1773, and annoted "dead" by George Fair on the Goldsmiths Hall copy of the report so he probably died in late 1773 or 1774.
