Footnotes

  • G.H Baillie's "Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World", records Hugh Knight as working in Stone in 1795. He also lists an "H. Knight" working in Stafford circa 1790 which is approximately seven miles further south and comments that Hugh Knight and H Knight are 'probably the same man'.

    Joseph McKenna's "Clockmakers & Watchmakers of Central England" lists Hugh Knight in Stone working from 1785 to 1798 and taking four apprentices during this period and looking after the church clock at Market Drayton.
