William WYNN

William Wynn (Sorry we do not know what he looked like) was probably born near to Farnham in Surrey, around 1770 and is reputed to have died in London about 1835. Wynn was a maker of turret clocks, he was awarded prizes from the Society of Arts for a new clock escapement and improved clock hammers. He became a great rival to James Harrison 3. Wynn installed several turret clocks, including one at Boston Lincs. James Harrison 3 was after the job. When letters from Wynn appeared in the Mechanics Magazine, James 3 replied antagonistically. This led to a long series of letters running over several years.
