MARKS - HALLMARKS - HISTORY

Joseph Angell (senior) was apprenticed to Henry Nutting in 1796, obtaining his freedom in 1804. His brother John Angell was apprenticed to William Elliott in 1799 and obtained his freedom in 1807. Another brother (Abraham) was apprenticed to Joseph Angell (1806) but never obtained his freedom.
Joseph Angell senior entered his first mark in 1811, being active as "plate worker" at 55 Compton Street, Clerkenwell.
In 1831 he entered a joint mark with his brother John Angell (mark JA over IA, on 31 January 1831). In c. 1837 Joseph Angell junior (son of Joseph Angell senior) joined to the partnership and the business was continued under the style Angell, Son & Angell.
In 1840 John Angell left the partnership and the business was continued as Joseph Angell & Son by Joseph Angell senior and Joseph Angell junior. The new mark (JA over JA) was entered on 6 July 1840 and in 1842 the business moved to 25 Panton Street, Haymarket.
After the retirement of Joseph Angell senior (1848) the business was continued by his son Joseph junior under his own name, opening new retail premises at 10 Strand, Charing Cross (1849).
Joseph Angell junior participated to the 1851 Great Exhibition (he was awarded of a Prize Medal for his enamelled articles), to the 1853 New York Exhibition (bronze medal) and to the 1862 International Exhibition (another medal).
In 1867 Joseph Angell junior entered in partnership with John Browne, trading as Angell & Browne. When the partnership with Browne was dissolved (1876), the business was continued as Angell & Co.


After the dissolution of the business Angell, Son & Angell (1840), John Charles Angell and George Angell (sons of John Angell) entered their first mark, trading at 51 Compton Street, Clerkenwell.
John Charles Angell was apprenticed to his father in 1825, obtaining his freedom in 1832. George Angell obtained his freedom by patrimony in 1842.
John Charles Angell died in 1850 and the activity was continued by his brother George as George Angell & Co (1852-1860) and as George Angell manufacturing silversmith.
George Angell participated to the 1851 Great Exhibition with a large vase (in the 'Etruscan style', illustrative of the progress of civilization) and other silverware.
In 1884, after the death of George Angell, the firm was taken over by George Frederick Courthope. He entered his own mark (2 October 1884) but continued to trade under the style of George Angell until 1889.
Beginning as manufacturing silversmiths, Angell family gradually turned to retail business, assuming the role of one of the largest and most important silversmithing and jewellery manufacturers and retailers in London in the mid 19th century.

There is some confusion in the genealogy of Angell family. The names are repeated and there are discrepancies between different authors.
In this page I try to make a synthesis of this information. I apologize for any possible error
