Notes EZEKIEL, Henry. Guernsey. Son of Abraham Ezekiel I, goldsmith of Exeter, born 1772. His apprenticeship is unrecorded, but his brother Ezekiel Abraham Ezekiel was apprenticed to Alexander Jenkins of Exeter, and it seems likely that he was also apprenticed there, becoming free circa 1793. He is known to have been established in Guernsey by 1806, when his brother died, and Guernsey longcase clocks apparently of circa 1820-1830, with his name on their dials as retailer, show that he was there then. He had returned to Exeter by 1835, when he died. His sister Anne married Benjamin Jonas,goldsmith of Devonport, known 1806-1814, and a nephew may be Benjamin Jonas, watchmaker of Teignmouth, known 1823-1830.’ from Cohen, Channel islands Silver.
