Peareth, John, London (1774–96). A senior journeyman employed by Thomas Chippendale snr and jnr in their business. Receipted bills on behalf of the firm survive, in connection with a Temple Newsam House, Leeds commission in 1774, and items supplied to Sir John Nelthorpe in 1781. The rate bk for 60 St Martin's Lane is endorsed for the year 1795–96 in the names of Thomas Chippendale and John Peareth, suggesting that the latter might have become the Partner of Thomas Chippendale jnr following the retirement of Thomas Haig in 1795. Heal suggests that John Peareth is the same person as the John Peart who traded in London as a u, 1750–97. [Gilbert, Chippendale, p. 268; Heal]
