Ahasuerus Fromanteel the Younger and Christopher Clarke began a partnership circa 1680 to form the firm of Fromanteel & Clarke. Fromanteel came from a family of distinguished watch and clockmakers, and worked in both London and Amsterdam. He earned his Freedom from the Clockmakers’ Company in 1672. Clarke, a British ex-patriate who resided in Amsterdam, married Fromanteel's daughter in 1694. Clocks and watches signed ‘Fromanteel & Clarke’ were often manufactured in Amsterdam, and sold both there and in London. Their partnership ended in 1703 when Fromanteel died, Clarke continued to work, joining a partnership with Fromanteel's younger brother, Abraham.
