* Edward Upjohn is listed on page 789 of Loomes’ ‘Clockmakers of the World: 21st Century Edition’. He was a member of one of Exeter’s most famous clockmaking families whose descendents worked both in Exeter and London during most of the 18th century and into the early 1800s.
Edward Upjohn began life as a stonemason in Shaftesbury or Shaston as it was known in the 1700s. He moved to America with his wife in 1723, firstly Philadelphia and then Charleston. However, due to ill health in 1726 they returned to Topsham in Devon where they remained until 1738. The family then settled in Exeter where Edward had a workshop until his death in 1764.
