Notes:

Dendrochronological analysis has recently established that the violin was made rather later than the suggested date, and probably after the demise of Edward Pamphilon himself. Nevertheless, the style and workmanship is representative of the work of the Pamphilon family as far as it is known, and the instrument can reasonably be ascribed to them.
