Footnotes

  • The Ashton family were active in Derbyshire in the 18th century. Samuel Ashton was born in Macclesfield and was working in Ashbourne by 1753. He took several apprentices, notably John Litton and Martin Condliff later of Sheffield, who founded a dynasty of makers in Liverpool. Ashton latterly worked with his two sons, Martin (who succeeded him) and Thomas, who later moved to Tideswell and almost certainly made this clock.
