Husband of Sarah Exshaw and father of John Exshaw.

Apprentice to George Ewing (Munter).

He took his son into partnership in 1748 (Munter).

Succeeded in business by his son and widow on his death in 1748, trading as 'S. & J. Exshaw'.

[Dates and addresses differ according to sources: Berry gives the Bible, Cork Hill prior to 1760 and erroneously gives Ed. Exshaw instead of John Exshaw at the Bible, Dame Street in 1760. Dix gives the dates erroneously as 1743 to 1793. Boydell (Calendar) also gives the dates erroneously as 1743 to 1793 and is the only source to provide the Grafton Street address. Munter states that Exshaw died in 1748. It is probable that the date of 1794 came from the last issue of the London Magazine which he began publishing in 1743, but which continued after his death.]
