Bateson, David (1772-1803)

Bateson, David

Lancaster, Lancashire and London; cabinet maker (fl.1772–1803)

An apprentice to J. Niel or O’Neil in 1772. Admitted a freeman of Lancaster, 1782–83, when described as ‘of Little Russel St., Bloomsbury, London’.

Polled at Lancaster in 1784 with an address in London [Lancaster apprentice register and freemen rolls].   

Probably the same David Bateson recorded with the address of 128 High Holborn, London, when he purchased a Sun Insurance policy on 10 June 1791 for £400 of which utensils, stock and goods in trust and on commission accounted for £310. He was named in Sheraton's list of master cabinet makers, 1803 [Guildhall Library, Sun MS vol. 373, ref. 584247]. 

Probably the father or a relative of M. Bateson (1820).
