Samuel Godbehere, London silversmith, no record of apprenticeship or freedom. 1st mark (2 sizes) entered as plateworker in 1784, 2nd mark 1784, After this period Samel entered into several successive partnerships. 3rd mark (2 sizes) 1786 and 4th mark (3 sizes) 1789 both in partnership with Edward Wigan. 5th mark (3 sizes) 1792. 6th mark 1800 in partnership with Edward Wigan and James Bult (entered as S.

Grimwade records Godbehere as succeeding James Stamp, goldsmith and jeweller of 86 Cheapside in 1786 (where Godbehere worked until at least 1796) and also a connection with William Bottle and James Burden, both Bath goldsmiths. He suggests that Godbehere was possibly supplying Bath goldsmiths with London goods.
