Catalogue Note

Jeremy Gregory (1621-1686) was born in London and apprenticed in 1635 to Jeremy East in the Goldsmiths' Company, brother of Edward East the famous clockmaker.  It appears that the East family worked closely together and, in 1652, Gregory was made a Free Brother of the Clockmakers' Company. He was Master of the Clockmakers' Company in 1665 and 1666 and again in 1676. However, very few clocks and watches signed by him are recorded. He died in 1686.
