  General notes:

Silversmith

  Events in his life were:

  • He worked from 1778 to 1785 as a silversmith in Boston MA with a shop at No. 15 Cornhill, where he had showcases inside and out. Platework, punch ladles, boatswain's calls, spurs, shoe, knee and stock buckles were all part of his stock. A Mr. Vent [perhaps John Vent], native of Halle, Germany, was employed as journeyman. In 1785, when Tyler embarked in navigation, he gave his apprentice, Samuel Davis, the remainder of his time. Davis speaks with respect of Tyler's "uniform good will and kindness." According to Davis' Memoirs, during the six years of his apprenticeship to Tyler, "buckles and many peculiar articles of the trade have ceased to be worn at all." 3
  • Master to Samuel Davis Apr 1779-1785 in Boston MA. 1
