Major Timothy Chandler was born on April 25, 1762 and died on August 9, 1848. He was apprenticed to a local maker on hand cards for carding wool. He moved for a short time to Connecticut and moved back to Concord in 1785. It is not known who he learned clockmaking from. A possibility would include Peregrine White of Woodstock, Connecticut or Jonathan Hale of Pomfret, Connecticut. In Concord, he became a prolific clockmaker until his retirement in 1829.
