Peete, Robert

Norwich, Norfolk; chair and cabinet maker (fl. 1761–84)

In 1761 he was located in the Cathedral Close. By June 1776 he was trading from near the Red Well. 

In addition to his chair and cabinet goods he offered ‘many curious Articles, in Inlaying and Engraving, in ornamental and useful Pieces of Furniture, never before seen in Norwich, with various diversified Foreign and English Woods, in the present Taste in London’. He also stated that he had a stock of ‘elegant Looking-Glasses’ which as he was over-stocked with these he was offering at cost. He also required an apprentice [Norfolk Chronicle, 8 June 1776]

By 1784 he was living at Diss, Norfolk.
