“RE – EB” : Rebecca Emes and Edward Barnard
Little is known of Rebecca Emes’ life. She married the engraver and water colour painter John Emes, In 1796 John Emes became partner in the London silversmith company of Thomas Chawner and his son Henry Chawner who had hired Edward Barnard as foreman of the company. When the elder Chawner retired, Emes became sole owner and presumably he carried on his own work of creating engravings for publications while Rebecca started to work in the silversmith business. John Emes died in 1808 and Rebecca became a partner with Barnard and Henry Chawner. The firm went by the name Rebecca Emes & Edward Barnard and Rebecca Emes is known for household silverware. She withdrew from the business in 1829.
