Hi Siouxzie,

Could you please have a look for a clock/watchmaker in Birmingham, UK by the name of Watkins?

My father-in-law has an old wall clock made by a T.H Watkins, who he claims was his great grandfather. The certificates I have bought indicate that his great grandfather was  Henry Watkins, a watchmaker of Birmingham. On one certificate I have this same person referred to as Thomas Theophilus Henry Watkins.

I understand that others in the family were also in the clock/watchmaking trade in Birmingham too.

I think the period I am looking for would be around 1850.

Thanks.

Hi Wotty,
Lots of Watkins, so I'll just do the Birmingham ones.
Unfortunately there is no indication of relationships. Although perhaps Henry Jnr is the son of Henry ?

Henry jnr, Birmingham 1880
John Stickley Birmingham, 1828 - 60

Hello Siouxzie

If you have time before your holiday, could you look up SAMUEL BOWTELL? He was listed as a clockmaker on his son's marriage certificate in 1858. He probably came from Middlesex.

Many thanks!

Hi Siouxzie, could you please see if there are any Bramwell watchmakers listed?  Probably Alston but some moved away so any info would be great.  Thanks, hope you have/had a good holiday.

Hello
I just wondered if there were any Tolladys listed, probably Bury st Edmunds Suffolk or Matlock Bank Derbyshire 1800s.
Thanks a lot.
