Lot Essay

Samuel Barnard (1684-1762) lived in Deerfield, Massachusetts and in 1718 married Sarah Williams (1695-1720). After his wife's death, he moved to Salem where he became a successful merchant. As discussed in lot 56 in this sale, his first cousin Hannah Barnard (1684-1716) owned the famed painted "Hadley" cupboard and his first wife may have also owned a similarly painted chest-with-drawers (see lot 56, figs. 1, 3).
