The clock dates to the early 1700s (c 1690 - 1710)
It began life as a one-hand clock.
Chapter ring hours are divided into fourths. Was upgraded to a 30 hour clock with chimes and music in 1800s.
Acquired by Charles Cheetham Higham in the late 1800s (c1890)
Was passed to Joel Williams Higham, then to his daughter, Ruth Norton Higham Bishop, than following her death to Jack Higham.
