He is thought to have been born about 1720 and to have been a member of the Baptist church. A watch by him is hallmarked 1774. In 1776 he took Thomas Venall as apprentice. The dial is only 5 ¼ inches by 7 ½ inches, case 19 inches by 9 ½ inches.

A 'sleepy' centre-pendulum clock with wings, made about 1680-90 by John May, a Dutchman, who lived with his wife and children in the parish of St. Helen's, Bishopsgate, in London from at least 1676. He did not join the Clockmakers' Company till 1693 and was a member till at least 1702. He is believed to have lived on till 1738. The clock does not appear to have been cleaned for over a century. The clock originally had alarmwork, removed later. Pictured here before and after cleaning.

A handsome English Civil War period lantern clock (about 1650) ‘modernised’ about thirty years later by Giles Lumbard of Ilminster in Somerset, a maker previously unrecorded, who replaced the dial with his own and probably converted the escapement to long pendulum at the same time. He was working from 1665 and is believed to have died in 1707. Now cleaned and serviced. See article.
