Godfrey 5
This extract from 'Chinese Armorial Porcelain' by David Howard (volume 1, page 172)(reproduced with the kind permission of the author) suggests who that person may have been. PeterGodfrey was a chief supercargo at Canton in 1728 and was Chief of the Council(of The East India Company) in that year. He came from a well-recorded family from Kent. But as chief supercargo, he had the potential to earn incredible sums of money, even more than professional footballers nowadays.
