So, is your Josiah not the Josiah Eburne who was also bc 1793, married Maria
Curzon in 1817 and was a ribbon dresser living at Priory in Coventry in the
1841 census?

As for John Powell, there is this one from the 1851:

Yes, Josiah b 1793 was apprenticed to John Powell on 5 September 1807. I
have his indenture. He was made a Freeman of the City of Coventry on 25
October 1814, I also have that document, pretty special aren't they.

I have had an answer from Peter Naul of the Coventry Watchmakers museum, but
he does not have any mention of either John Powell or Josiah Eburne in the
trade lists there. As Peter states John Powell may have been too small an

Thank you everyone who is trying to help, this is most appreciated.
