  General notes:

Silversmith

  Events in his life were:

  • Best known as maker of buckles and spoons. His limited production of silver may be the result of the Revolutionary War, which interrupted his apprenticeship to his father. During this period he served under his father at Castle Island as a lieutenant. After the war he worked with the senior Revere in the silversmith business which included resale of foreign imports. In the 1796 Boston Directory he is listed with his father as REVERE & SON, and apparently used the same marks as his father. Listed as a goldsmith in directories until 1807. 3
