I presume you are aware of the entry in Pigot's Directory of 1835 for Belper as follows

Ault Jos. watch & clock maker, Bridge st

If not this is located at

I am researching the Ault family (my mother's family name) that originated in Doveridge Derbyshire but appeared to spread out presumably for work reasons from about 1800 onwards. I am also researching my late first wife's roots and by coincidence this includes two families (Yeomans and Futter) that lived in the same area of Derbyshire about the same time.So I now keep my eyes open for all three names in that area.

I was actually researching for material on these last two families when I came across the above entry for Jos Ault!
