Footnotes

  • The McCabe family business in the Royal Exchange, London was founded by James McCabe Senior in 1778. Born in 1748, he worked in London producing very fine watches, clocks and chronometers in Fleet Street, Cheapside and eventually at 97 Cornhill, Royal Exchange. After his death in 1811, his son, also James, succeeded him.

    James Jnr. was apprenticed to Reid and Auld of Edinburgh, and continued the business under the name McCabe & Son, 99 Cornhill and later McCabe and Strahan, 97 Cornhill. He was made free of the Clockmakers Company in 1822. In 1838 the Royal Exchange was destroyed by fire and the business moved to 32 Cornhill where it continued until it was closed by James Junior's nephew, R.J. McCabe in 1883.
