Footnotes

  • John Barwise was born in Cockermouth, Cumberland in 1755, the son of Lot Barwise. He began working in St Martin's Lane, London circa 1780. Between 1819 and 1823, the business was known as Barwise and Sons and then from circa 1823 until circa 1843, John Barwise became a partner in Western and Barwise. He was thought to have died in 1842 but this date was discovered to be incorrect. He was supposedly appointed chairman of the British Watch Co but this may have been his son.
