David Marc Samuel Raymond

118 bis rue de Cendrier, Geneva. A maker of musical boxes, who worked in the same building as the headquarters of the firm of Nicole Frères. He married Judith Nicole and had two sons, one of whom was named

Henri François Raymond, *1809,

and subsequently moved to London c. 1835-40. It is NOT thought that this is the Raymond whose name is specifically linked with that of Nicole on signed musical boxes, but is probably the originator of those movements which are marked `Raymond´ alone.
