William Palmer was a master builder elected to The Carpenters' Company in 1800. One William Palmer was also noted by Scharf & Westcott as an original member of the King George III Fire Company, founded in 1761; however, it is not known if this is the same Palmer (S&W, III, 1886). Copies of indenture papers do exist to indicate that Palmer was apprenticed to Joseph Govett in 1787, and that Palmer himself took on an apprentice beginning in 1802 (Thomas Worn).
