About David Barclay

From "A History of the Bevan Family" by Audrey Nona Gamble (née Bevan); (privately published in 1923):

"David Barclay (1682-1769), the son of the Apologist, came from Scotland to Cheapside as apprentice to James Taylor, a Linen Draper at “The Sign of the Bear”. He married Ann Taylor, his master’s daughter, succeeded to the business and brought up a large family in the Cheapside house. David Barclay prospered and on the occasion of George III’s visit to the City for the Lord Mayor’s show in 1761 the Quaker Linen Draper entertained Their Majesties right royally at his house in Cheapside."
