*Simon De Charmes was a French Huguenot clockmaker working in London where he arrived in 1688. He was a refugee from France after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685 by Louis XIV. The resulting exodus of Huguenot workers deprived French industry of some of their finest craftsmen and had a dramatic affect upon English furniture, silverware, tapestries and of clocks. He became a Free Brother of the Clockmakers’ Company in April 1691 and was active at the Sign of the Clock in Charing Cross until at least 1704. He is said to have died at Grove Hall, Hammersmith in 1730.
