Footnotes

  • The surname Sergeant was spelled in different ways throughout the Georgian era, sometimes without the 'a' sometimes with a 'j'. Bearing in mind the backplate is engraved JS, it would seem appropriate to attribute this clock to Joseph Sargent, working in Jermyn Street from 1794-1820. He was Watchmaker to the Princess of Wales.
