koopman rare art

 
 

Joseph Bird

Two marks entered, undated, probably 1697 on commencement of register. Address: Foster Lane. Described as Free Brewer. Third mark entered with no date or address. Fourth (Sterling) mark, 19 June 1724. His name does not appear in the registers of the Brewers' Company so far back as they have survived, 1685, so he was presumably a freeman before that date.
