John stancliff watchmaker of burnley
« on: Sunday 25 March 18 14:34 BST (UK) »
I have a long case grandfather clock
 made by
      "STANCLIFF. BURNLEY".
I am trying to determine age and origin, history of the maker.
Thanks,
George

There appears to be two Stancliffe clockmakers in Burnley, one spelet Stancliff and one spelt Stancliffe, from what little I can find on Google.
