Walter Michell (Mitchell) is known to have worked in Market Street, Plymouth from at least 1744 when he took Jonathan Forrest as an apprentice at a premium of £44. On the 12th of April 1746 he took out a licence to marry Ann Turtliff at St Andrews church, and they were left a guinea in the will of Stephen Turtliff, presumably her father, which was proved on the 22nd of December 1749. There is a lantern clock by Michell hanging in Buckland Abbey, built in the 13th century by Cistercian monks, and which was later home to two seafaring legends, Sir Richard Grenville and Sir Francis Drake.
