bullet  Notes:

David was born in Caen in France, and came to England as a Huguenot refugee with his mother, three brothers and two sisters around 1690. The first reference to him in the registers of the French Community in London was in 1700. He was a clockmaker, and was living in Petticoat Lane in Spitalfields when he married Susannah Parry (qv) in 1704, but by 1709 had settled in Winchester. A calendar watch that he made is in the Ilbert Collection in the British Museum.

David and his wife Susannah had five children who survived infancy. Their oldest daughter Susannah married Richard Mitchel, a linen draper in Winchester. Their other married daughter was Catherine, whose husband William Barlow was a grocer in Havant. David and Susannah's eldest son David was a grocer in Winchester: his son David was first a tea broker, then a smuggler who went to Africa after a spell in prison - his family was supported by his sister Ann who had married an attorney, and did not have any children of her own. David snr's younger son was Michael (qv), a goldsmith in London. The youngest daughter Martha did not marry, and lived in Winchester.
