Clockmaking Family: Gill

25th January 2019

Bob Wilcock:

Dennis, your clock sounds interesting, and I would love to see pictures. Not sure about e-mailing on this site, I'll have to find out. This message is to say you are too early on the date. Daniel did not start in Rye until 1784. I have spent today working on his biography, which I hope to have ready by Easter., and that date is certain. Look forward to your reply. Bob

Clockmaking Family: Gill

18th January 2019

Dennis Kenyon:

Hallo Celia ... By accident I found this site about the Rye clockmaker Daniel Gill. I am just about to advertise his Grandfather Clock in the Rye local newspaper. The clock I have was made and signed by Daniel Gill about 1760. A beautifully carved dark solid Oak case with a silvered dial. I purchased the clock while living in Brighton in 1975. If you want a photo of the clock or any further information I might have, just e-mail me. Sincerely. Dennis Kenyon.

You might want to get "The Brave Remembered - Battle at War 1914-1919 by George Kiloh from bookshops in Battle or from the Battle & District History Society. It goes into detail not only about James but also 2 brothers that survived, Charles Edwin and Stanley.
