Listing Information
A George II Dram or Tot Cup with handle, London 1728, James Goodwin, engraved under the foot with contemporary initials, 'F' over 'TA'.

For other tot cups of similar shape, dating from 1712 and 1742, see 'The Albert Collection', pp.125 and 132.

An interesting court case provides some information about Goodwin's family and the marriage of his widow:
National Archives, C 11/2254/54. Woodward v Maidman. 1732.
Plaintiffs: John Woodward, silversmith of London and Isabella Woodward his wife (a daughter of James Goodwin, silversmith deceased late of London, and sister and administratrix of James Goodwin, infant deceased).
Defendants: Ralph Maidman and Elizabeth Maidman his wife and Matelder Goodwin infant (by said Ralph Maidman).
It seems that Goodwin died in 1729 and his widow, Elizabeth, having entered her own mark, married Ralph Maidman, on 25th May 1731. Maidman then entered a mark with the Goldsmiths' Company and carried on the business in the same premises in Noble street (for Maidman's mark see Grimwade p.588). By 1737, Maidman was an 'insolvent debtor' in the Fleet prison.
Very good.
