George Monks (II) is listed in Brain Loomes new book, “Watchmakers & Clockmakers of the World.” Loomes lists two George Monks. The first George was born in 1750 and died in 1815. His son, George (II), the Maker of this example, was born in 1775 and died in 1827. Both father and son worked in Prescott. The town of Prescott, England is located 7 miles East of the city of Liverpool in Lancaster County. This clock certainly has many of the midland attributes.
