William Bateman I

William Bateman I was the grandson of the renowned female silversmith Hester Bateman. William was taught by his father Jonathan Bateman and took over the business after his father’s death. He registered a mark in 1800 with his mother Ann and his uncle Peter, operating from the workshop at 108 Bunhill Row in London.

Whilst being a skilled silversmith operating within a legacy family, William Bateman I was also involved in other ventures, including a Proprietor of the Chartered Gas, Light and Coke Company, and later served as its Director, Deputy Governor, and Governor; all in addition to being Commissioner of Sewers for the Holborn and Finsbury Division. These endeavours did not take William away from producing silverware and he instead grew his reputation with commissions for prestigious clients, such as the royal retail firm Rundell, Bridge & Rundell and later his workshop became the royal silversmiths to King William IV.
