* This clock was most probably made by Richard Pinfold Ganthony who was the son of a well-known clockmaker of the same name. He was a member of the Clockmakers’ Company from 1821 until his death in 1845. He is listed on page 290 of Brian Loomes’ “Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World – 21st century edition”.
