    Default Trying to find out about my clock

    "Britten's Old Clocks and Watches and Their Makers" Lists a John Adamson circa 1813. No mention of a location. I think "Kennoway" was likely the location of the maker's workshop or sales office. David

    There is a John Adamson listed in Cupar Fife Scotland 1837. Cuper Fife is 10 Miles south of Dundee. The village of Kennoway is near by.(Seven miles from Cupar Fife) See Watchmakers & Clockmakers of the World Vol 2 by Loomes

    Hello Bill,

    You should post some photographs of the clock. Tall clock case style vary with period and region., and can often be identified based on their characteristics.
