Edward Aldridge I
? - 1766/67
English. London silversmith. His first mark was entered as a smallworker in 1724; Edward Groombridge records several marks of Aldridge alone, and two in partnership with John Stamper (#528 and a similar smaller one). Both were entered at Goldsmiths Hall on July 20, 1753. The partnership is recorded as being from 1753 to 1757. Aldridge’s sign, cited in Ambrose Heal as being “The Golden Ewer,” hung at several addresses. He probably died by 1766/67. (Source: Groombridge, pp. 48 and 421.)
