Footnotes

  • Christopher Gould was admitted to the Clockmakers Company as a Free Brother in 1682. He is most commonly associated with the exquisitely inlaid longcase clocks that are among the most decorative and attractive of the late 17th and early 18th century. Unfortunately, he was declared bankrupt in 1706 and relied on the Clockmakers Company for a pension from 1713, until his death in 1718.
