In Reply to: Frewin clockmaker circa 1750? posted by Lawrence Frewin on May 24, 1999 at 20:57:26:
I have had an update from Stephen Frampton on enquiries he has made concerning the Frewin Clockmaker we mentioned above. Here is his message:
"Well I have done some more research and it looks very likely that the clock WAS by Thomas Frewin.
Firstly I checked the surname FRERVIN and I can find no record of that name anywhere in the world. I then contacted a clockmaker friend of mine who did some research for me. I got the date of my clock wrong, he seems think that it was about 1850.
He found a Samuel Frewin (b.1754-d.1838) who worked as a clockmaker in the Bristol area (close to Hereford) from 1812 to 1818. He then found more clockmakers, Ann Frewin of Hereford who was worked in 1850 and James Frewin who worked from 1830 to 1844. These details came from the book, Watchmakers and Clockmakers of the World Volume 2 by Brian Looms.
I hope that this is of some interest to you and please let me know if there is a connection as I would be intrigued.
