Brian, Daniel Gill moved to Rye after Samuel was born & was well established by 1791: "silversmith, clock & watchmaker & agent for Royal Exchange Assurance" per the Universal British Directory. Samuel took over his father's shop in 1810 & moved out of Rye 1817/18. Does anyone know if he continued clock/watchmaking after that date, & if so where? (Incidentally I agree the Bonham's clock is superb - they had a plainer, cheaper one in July.)

I note that a London dealer has a superb long case clock by Daniel Gill,case made in satinwood. Samuel Gill,Rye was his son who started a watch/ Silversmith business in 1810 and had watches stolen from his shop in 1810.

Samuel was born in 1784. and his father Daniel may have closed his clock making business down circa 1800 close links with Apps of Battle.

What a pity, but thank you anyway! It has happened to me, too - annoying when one has used time and effort! Perhaps the website should post a warning about time limits? [You will be glad to know this update is in the pipeline, thanks, Ed] Hope to hear from you again. Regards

I wrote a long message about Daniel Gill but when I posted it I had been timed out and lost it all. When I have time I will have to write it again and cut and paste it.

Hei igjen Rene Breck! After writing to you yesterday I found, quite by chance, a picture on: www.antiquesrye.co.uk/Gill_clock_Rye.htm This shows a clock very similar to our own "Daniel" (as we call him) and the caption "circa 1770 SOLD". Wonder whether this is the clock you bought? Vennlig hilsen, Celia Syversen

Hei Rene Breck! Have only just seen your message. If you look at the heading "Clockmaking family: Gill" you will find some useful information! Vennlig hilsen Celia Syversen
