Eliza(beth) Godfrey

Nee Pantin. Married first to Abraham Buteaux whom she survived to carry on business as his widow until marriage the following year to Benjamin Godfrey. Mark entered, 29 June 1741, presumably on Benjamin's death. Address: Norris Street, Haymarket, where Heal records her till 1758. Described in her trade card as 'Goldsmith, Silversmith and Jeweller to His Royal Highness the Duke of Cumberland'. Her work, which has survived in considerable quantity, shows, as might be expected, strong Huguenot characteristics of design and fine execution.
