William Burwash

No record of apprenticeship or freedom, Heal records William Burwash, watchcasemaker, at 45 Red Lion Street, Clerkenwell, from 1782-1804, for whom two incuse marks are entered in 1802 and 1803 at 3 Red Lion Street. It would seem very likely that he is the William Burwash of St.Stephens’s Wallbrook, married at that Church, 7 November 1781, to Elizabeth Salt of St. John’s, Clerkenwell , and that they may be the parents of William Burwash of this entry. First mark entered in partnership with Richard Sibley , 7 October 1705. Address: 14 Bartholomew Close. Second mark alone , incuse, 6 July 1812.  Third mark( two sizes) , 10 August 1812. Fourth mark, 23 April 1813, all at the same address. His son George apprenticed to Richard Sibley 1 January 1806 and another son William to William Chawner 6 November 1816, who had married Mary Burwash earlier that year.
