    William Wade is recorded as a carver and gilder at this address in Leadenhall Street from 1785 to 1839. This long length of time suggests that father and son were involved and traded from the same premises (G. Beard and C. Gilbert, eds., The Dictionary of English Furniture Makers, Leeds, 1986, p. 931).
