Philip Holway was born in Sandwich, Massachusetts on January 14, 1805 and died in Boston on November 28, 1864 at the age of 59. It appears he first worked in Falmouth as a clockmaker until he moved North to Lynn, Massachusetts in 1828. In Lynn, he advertised that he had taken a stand in Common Street opposite the Hotel. In 1833, an advertisement for him lists him as a watchmaker from Marblehead. In 1842 through 1863, he is then listed in the Boston directories as a watchmaker. He had a shop on Hanover Street. Over the years we have owned several tall case clocks, shelf clocks and a timepiece made by this Maker.
