No record of his apprenticeship or freedom. Perhaps identifiable with, or the son of the William Eaton who entered a mark as bucklemaker, 19 March 1781. Address: 6 Albion Buildings, Aldersgate Street. Second mark as such, 22 April 1784. Address: 3 Adle Street, Wood Street, with further marks 1786 and 1801 without change of address. First mark as plateworker entered 18 May 1813. Address: 30 Addler Street. Second mark, 5 March 1824. Third, 18 October 1825. Moved to 16 Jewin Cresent, Jewin Street, 20 December 1825. Fourth mark, 5 September 1828. Moved to 2 Lovels Court, Paternoster Row, 10 December 1828. Fifth mark, 31 December 1828. Sixth, 30 September 1830. Seventh as spoonmaker, 2 January 1834. Eighth, 27 January 1836. Ninth, on removal to 16 Jewin Cresent, 2 June1837. Tenth mark, 22 February 1840. New Manufactory at 32 Banner Street, St. Luke's, 1 October 1844. Although only styled spoonmaker from 1834 onwards it seems probable that this was his special trade. The address in Lovels Court in 1828 suggests a connection, if only temporary, with the firm of Eley, Fearn and Chawner at the next number
