    • It is interesting that Joseph was apprentice to his uncle in Exeter, when his own father was a goldsmith in Dartmouth.
      Maybe it was so that he could become a freeman of Exeter, perhaps prospects seemed better there, although he was to go on to be a goldsmith in Taunton, and when he married was described as 'of Dartmouth', not Exeter.
