Gouldie, James (1805–1820)

Gouldie, James

27 Ranelagh St, Liverpool, Lancs.; cabinet maker and upholder (fl. 1805–c.1820)

Trade card describes his trade as ‘Cabinet, Grecian Couch & Chair Manufacturer’ with residence at 27 Ranelagh Street and manufactory at Mitchell Place, Ranelagh Street.

In 1805 he signed the supplement to the Liverpool Cabinet and Chair Prices on behalf of the journeymen. An 1823 directory lists the firm of Gouldie & Logan at 32 Naylor Street, a veneer sawmill.

This was perhaps the same man as listed in 1814 as a creditor of Walter Newall, furniture maker of Dumfries.
