Abraham Buteaux

Abraham Buteaux (or Bateaux or Bulteaux), born 1698 in London, godparents Simon Pantin and Suzanne Lalau. Apprenticed to William West of the Skinners Company 1711, free 1719. Married Simon Pantin’s daughter Elizabeth in 1720 at St Pauls Cathedral. Two marks (sterling and Britannia) entered as largeworker 1721. Died circa 1731 when Elizabeth entered her own mark as widow.

There are no records to show that Buteaux worked for his master West, or the Skinners Company, after obtaining his freedom so it’s likely that Buteux was working with one of the Huguenot workshops. Buteaux’s work is of a similar type to Simon Pantin’s – chiefly plain cups and other hollow-ware and salvers.
