Gabriel Wirgman and George Wintle are often confused. Gabriel Wirgman
entered his first mark as a small-worker on 22nd June 1772, but had in fact
been working from as early as 1767. He died in 1791, his will being
proved on 23rd September 1791. Wirgman's shop, at the corner of
James's Place is mentioned in Boswell's "Life of Johnson", when Dr. Johnson
goes into the shop.
