John DEALE d.1726

Biographical Note

Deale was a mercer of London.


His will makes no mention of books, but all of Deale's household goods were bequeathed to Sarah Hatch junior who he describes as a spinster. His books were sold by retail sale in London from the 16 January 1727, alongside those of an unidentified John Keightley. The sale was advertised in the Daily Post, with some adverts (e.g. 14 January 1727) containing a short list of titles from the 5000 volumes featured in the sale.
