Joseph APPELMAN was born 16 Feb 1795 in Marylebone London, and baptised 21 Mar 1795 at St. Mary Marylebone.
Joseph was a pianoforte maker like his father, although he was only 8 years old when his father died. He may have worked for John Broadwood & Sons, and was certainly living within a stroll of the company's Great Pulteney Street site during the first half of the 1800's.
In 1851, according to the census return, he was living at 4 Cross Street, very close to his son Joseph John, and just a short distance from his late father's home in Carnaby Street.
St. Mary, Marylebone “The poet Lord Byron (George Gordon Byron 1788-1824) was baptised there in 1788. Admiral Lord Nelson (1758-1805) worshipped there and his daughter Horatia was baptised in that church.” Quote taken from St. Marylebone Parish Church - Church history
