WATCH & CLOCKMAKERS- Books go Back Monday
« on: Friday 23 December 05 14:59 GMT (UK) »
I was disappointed that I was  off-line due to a house move in July when Siouxzie offered lookups for Watch and Clock Makers of the World, please see

http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php/topic,75492.0.html

I thought that maybe I would be able to solve a mystery so ordered volumes 1 and 2 of the Watchmakers & Clockmakers of the World" from the library. I have now received Vol 1 by  G.H. Ballie.

I am willing to do look ups if anyone would like me to see if their ancestor is listed.

Frances

PS  Also VOL 2

Not an ancestor, but I'd be pleased to know something about a clock my mother has as I've drawn a blank so far

Hi Frances,

Could you check on a John Brown for me please.  He's down as a clock maker on his son's marriage certificate in 1838 but I've not found him as yet on any census.  The marriage took place in Wakefield but his son was born in Ellerby, Yorkshire in 1815.  This was sometimes referred to as Helperby.  I have absolutely no other information.

Living in hope....

Hi Frances,
Could you check John Wilson, he was down as a watch maker on his son's marraige cert in 1848 (his son was born in Gateshaed in 1827). He was married in 1821 in Sunderland, Durham. So I hope those dates and place will narrow it down, I know its a rather common name.

Thanks

Sharon

Hi Glenys,

No luck I'm afraid, plenty of John Browns mostly in London, maybe he will be in the  Volume 2 when the library gets it in.

Kind Regards,

Frances :)
