George Gray first entered his mark in 1782 as jeweller. Between 1779-1799 he was working out of 4 Billeter Square. His first mark appears frequently overstruck on those of Hester Bateman and her successors Peter and Anne. It seems likely that he bought extensively from them, using his maker's mark as a retailer's mark.
