Footnotes

  • Daniel Quare and his former apprentice Stephen Horseman are recorded as a partnership in London between 1718 and 1733. Following Quare's death in 1724, Horseman continued to make clocks in the style of Quare until the business went bankrupt in 1733 and it was probably taken over by Richard Peckover.
