Birch & Gaydon

Information about clockmakers Birch & Gaydon

William Birch is recorded as working at 173 Fenchurch Street in London around 1840 as successor to William Turner and was probably the same Birch known to have been working in Tenterden in Kent before this date and then as a partnership with John Masters from circa 1836.

The partnership in London with Gaydon (ie: Birch & Gaydon) was known before 1875 as successors to William Birch and was still going in 1893. Birch died in 1903 aged eighty-eight.
