Thomas Wheeler, London, was apprenticed to Nicholas Coxeter in 1647/8 and free of the Clockmakers' Company in 1655/6. He held a number of official positions within the Clockmakers' Company including Assistant in 1674, Warden from 1680 and Master in 1684. One of his apprentices, Samuel Townson, married his daughter Sarah at St James's Duke's Place in 1695. Many of his clocks are signed 'near ye French Church in London', which would suggest a workshop near Threadneedle Street. He is also sometimes listed as being situated in the parish of All Hallow's London Wall and also in Bishopsgate Street, both in close proximity to the 'french church'. Wheeler died between 1695 adn 1697 and his widow received a charitable payment from teh Clockmakers' Company in 1701.
