b. about 1727; d. 1807. A maker in London. It is possible that a workman of the same name, employed by P. Wamsley in 1735, was his father. Followed the Amati model; his violins and violoncellos show finished workmanship, have a good tone, and are varnished yellow. Some instruments, of inferior make, follow the Stradivari model.
