The firm of Kirkman piano makers was founded in 1730, according to the Pierce Piano Atlas. However, Kirkman inherited the business from Tabel's wife, whom he married one month after Tabel's death. Tabel was a harpsichord maker who trained with Ruckers. He came to London in 1680 and set up making harpsichords. Abraham Kirkman, who was born in 1710 inBischweiler near Strasbourg, came to work for Tabel. In 1742 hemoved to Great Pulteney Street. These are some later dates and locations for him:
