Simeon Coley I entered his first mark on 27th September 1761 as a small-worker. He also appears as a buckle-maker and entered several marks as a buckle-maker. Simeon Coley I was Hannah Northcote’s father. These tongs are a pair of cast silver sugar tongs. They have the maker’s mark in an oval, without a pellet which means they must be dated after 4th August 1780, which was when this mark was registered.
