* For a full history of Thomas Moore, one of East Anglia's most illustrious clockmakers, see ‘Suffolk Clocks and Clockmakers’ by Haggar & Miller. Thomas was born in 1690 and died in 1762, being succeeded by his sons Edward and Hatley. The above authors suggest that the sons took over the business from about 1755.
