F.J. Britten notes in his book, Old Clocks and Watches and their Makers, that James Tregent was recorded at 35 Strand in 1775 and 29 Cranbroune St., Leicester Square in 1780. Britten also provides the following amusing anecdote: “Sheridan, by attributing his proverbial unpunctuality to the lack of a timekeeper, obtained from Harris, proprietor of Covent Garden Theatre, a watch of Tregent’s make” [op. cit. ACC edition, 1977 p. 500]. Tregent was a Freeman of the Clockmakers’ Company from 1781-1808.
