Two Devonshire goldsmiths


E.G. Punchard

Devon & Cornwall Notes & Queries 4:5, (1907) pp.149-150.

Prepared by Michael Steer

In reply to the Rev J F Chanter (1) Thomas Punchard of Totnes and Dartmouth (will Curia Arch. Totnes, Dec 4th 1669, prob. 23 April 1675); his second wife was Anastasia Staplehill of Dartmouth) (will January 5th, 1676, prob. Ibid. January 8, 1677). (2) Richard Punchard of Totnes, nephew of the above Thomas, son to Richard of Totnes, Vyntner, (will ibid. Dec 3, 1675, prob. Apl. 16, 1676.

I know of no other goldsmiths of this name; Richard may have lived at Barnstaple in 1649, but does not appear in any pedigree there or at Pilton.
