Looking for origins of MASON family who were gunmakers in Whitechapel. London.England

Journal by oriole

The furthest back I can go so far with my MASON family is around the start of 19th century when Robert Wm MASON was in Castle Alley, Whitechapel. Cant find his birth yet. Has anybody else researched this line or know anything about what type of guns would be made there at that time. They were variously called Gun Polishers, Gunlock Polishers or Gunmakers.

Hi my 'Mason" gg grandfather was an artillery gunsmith with the arsenal. They originated London/Plumstead/Greenwich. He emigreated to NZ in the late 1870's I have some but little information on his family.
