Silversmith and merchant
Events in his life were:
- Alternate Mark (tentative attribution)
- He learned the silversmith craft in firms with which his father was connected, and in January 1820 returned to Savannah to enter into partnership with his cousin, Josiah Penfield, forming the firm of J. PENFIELD & Co. On Sept. 3, 1822 he married Hetty Perry of Mill Plain, Conn. He remained in Savannah until the first of the year 1826, when he returned to New York and established a business at the same address as that of his father, 166 Broadway. There is still considerable silver extant bearing his mark. The New York City directories carried his name as a jeweler at 166 Broadway until 1830-31, when the firm MARQUAND & BROTHER supplanted it at the same address. This evidently included his younger brother, Josiah Penfield Marquand. Two years later the firm name appeared as MARQUAND & BROTHERS. According to our information, Isaac Marquand had three sons, Frederick, Josiah, and Henry, but Henry was born April 11, 1819, and it seems improbable that he would be a member of the firm early enough to be included in the 1832-33 directory. In 1833 the firm, moved to 181 Broadway, was changed to MARQUAND & Co., and so it remained until after the death of Isaac in 1838, and the withdrawal of Frederick and Henry in 1839. Josiah P. had probably died in 1837. The Marquand Pavilion of Bellevue Hospital, New York, was erected in 1877 by Frederick and Henry Marquand in memory of their brother, Josiah P. It is a ward for women and children. 15
