Stephen Adams I entered his first mark on his own on 8th October 1760, (he had entered marks in partnership with William Jury prior to that). At this time he was registered as a small-worker. Following this he changed to being a buckle-maker. Grimwade records him as being "principally a spoon-maker". For the purposes of ascribing work to one or other of the Stephen Adams's, I have taken the approach that anything prior to 24th March 1792 is Stephen Adams I, after that, his son. As the two were working together from at least as early as 1784, if not before, it is certain that anything produced between 1784 and c1790 could have been produced by either of them.
