- Michael has researched the Pulteney family for many years and wrote four of the entries on the 18th century Pulteneys for the Dictionary of National Biography. He continues to search for portraits and artefacts relating to the early members of the family and is happy to exchange information on these subjects.
- Michael is also interested in the history of silversmithing in Bath and would welcome pictures of Bath made or retailed pieces and discussion about the craftsmen involved in their creation.
