Brest is a city in France so "a Brest" is indeed the name where this person worked.

Style of this gun would be 1720s i think.

Can you send me a scan of the page from Stockel? I think you are right about the date. It could be a little earlier or a later.

I was thinking the same thing about Brest France, but didn't know if "Goyel a Brest" was another way of saying "Goyel in Brest".
