Extract from my book 'Lantern Clocks and their Makers'

Bayley, Jeffrey. London. He was apprenticed in 1637 through the Clockmakers' Company to Thomas Pace, with whom he twice had a dispute serious enough for the Company to become involved, though neither man would reveal details. He was freed in 1646, and possibly succeeded Christopher Vernon, q.v., about 1647. He may have succeeded his late master, Thomas Pace, at the Royal Exchange. He married in 1647 to Desabella Chesterman. She was born in 1626 , daughter of John Chesterman, gentleman, of Lambourne, Berkshire, who died in 1665. In 1662 he worked in Westminster. In 1673 he received a bequest of forty shillings in will of Robert Tyrell of St. Martins in the Fields. He was Assistant in the Company in 1665, Warden from 1670, Master in 1676. Of his apprentices those who later made lantern clocks include William Standish (freed 1669) and Edmund Appley (bound 1670, free 1678). He is believed to have died about 1696.

Several lantern clocks are known, one signed 'Galfridus Bayley Londini fecit', others 'Jeffrey Bayley at the Turne Stile in Holburne Londini Fecit', 'Iefery Bayley nere turne stile in hye Holborne', 'nere Turn Stile in holborn', 'at ye turn style in Holborn', 'at ye Turn-Stile in Holborn fecit', 'at the Turn Stile in Holburn Londini Fecit'. A lantern clock in the collection of the Clockmakers' Company is pictured in Clocks Magazine October 1978 p.23. Ullyett 2 pictures one signed 'Jeffrey Bayley at the Turnstile in Holburne Londini Fecit' dated 1653. White pictures one p.136 with no alarm, signed 'Jeffrey Bayley at the Turne Stile In Holburne Londini Fecit'. See my article about this maker in Clocks Magazine for October 2005 p.15, p.16, p.17, p.18, p.19 and p.20, where two lantern clocks by him are pictured in detail.
