Richard Beck apprenticed with John Selwood, then William Selwood and finally with Thomas Loomis at the Mermaid.  He worked alongside fellow clockmakers Simon Dudson, Tobias Davis, Samuel Davis and Edward Norris.  Beck was freed from his apprenticeship in May 1653.  Apparently Richard Beck was struck down with a severe illness in 1659. On May 31st he was so ill he signed his will, 'being sicke in Bodye' and died on June 4th.
