This Longcase Oak Archive's Maker - Edward Cockey is recorded baptised at Warminster 17th September 1669, working for his father by 1692, in church records as "Clockmaker" in 1708 and died 1768.By 1705 he had begun a long standing relationship with the owners and clocks of Longleat the most famous of which is the astronomical clock in the Great Hall bought by Lord Weymouth in 1707.A further astronomical clock was given to Queen Anne for her drawing room at St. James's Palace at about the same time.I assume that the latter was an expensive gift from Lord Weymouth. Edward also enjoyed the patronage of the Lutrell family of Dunster Castle and Lord Carrington of Wycombe Abbey. Edward junior did not, apparently follow his father into clockmaking becoming, instead, a wine merchant.
