Note: James Gatty is recorded in Goodison, Nicholas English Barometers 1680-1860 working from 130 and 132 High Holborn. His exact dates or whether he started as an optician or immigrant glassblower are unknown, however a barometer by him was included in the sale of Sir William Chambers s furniture in 1796; a James Gattey is also recorded as working from 64 Tooley Street in 1802. Gatty is considered to be probably the most sought-after maker of early wheel barometers which tend to be of the finest quality.
