Clockmakers and Watchmakers of Northamptonshire

 
TwitterFacebookGoogle+EmailShare/Bookmark

This index is a partial list of clock and watchmakers who are known to have worked in Northamptonshire.  The initial list was compiled for an Exhibition in 1966 organised by Mr W. N. Terry curator of the Northampton Museum and Art Gallery.  It has been supplemented by entries from selected trade directories between 1784 and 1890, it also includes some clock and watchmakers from adjoining counties.  Some apparent duplication in this list is because the individual is known to have worked from several addresses.  You will need to check each entry.

Each of the links below will take you to a detailed record.

If you have any additions to this list or able to provide any biographical information about these people please contact me, as I hope to expand the content of this list in due course. Contact me
