George Smith III was apprenticed to Thomas Chawner in 1765, turned over to Pierce Tempest, freedom unrecorded. 1st mark as spoonmaker 1774. 2nd--5th marks 1774, 1775, 1776, 1776, 1778. 6th (2 sizes) 1780. 7th (5 punches) 1782. 8th in partnership with William Fearn 1786. His son George Smith IV was apprenticed to William Fearn in 1786 and worked from 1799-1807.
