William Bertram (also Bartram) was born c. 1663. Initially apprenticed to Samuel Horne, he transferred to the case maker Samuel Bowtell (see lot 6 in this sale) after June 1681, and was freed in 1684. Interestingly, a Clockmakers’ Company minute of 1708 records that Bertram was excused stewardship of the Clockmakers’ Company on account of being “at present busy on the Queen’s business”.
