No record of apprenticeship or freedom. Probably widow of Robert Jones. Mark entered as plateworker, 15 January 1783. Address: 49 Bartholomew Close. Cf. Robert Jones and John Schofield, 40 Bartholomew Close, 1776, and the apprenticeship of Robert, son of Robert Jones 'late of Bartholomew Close Goldsmith deed' in 1787. Her mark, which is rarely found except on salvers and waiters, must be carefully distinguished from that of Edward Jay, which appear to early to be hers.Description
