Footnotes

  • William Barnard was perhaps Newark's best-known clockmaker, probably because he was the most prolific......The whole point about William's career and especially his early life is that he carried out a consistent practice which helps us put his clocks into sequence, in that he numbered each one. Numbers have been noted so far between the 300s and the 1200s. 'Brian Loomes' Collecting Antique Clocks.
