William Frodsham was an established London clockmaker. One of his sons, John Frodsham (1785-1849), went into partnership with Baker to form ‘Frodsham and Baker’ in 1809’. They were chronometer makers to the Admiralty and also made wall regulators. John had two sons; Henry John and George Edward. Henry John died in 1848 and George Edward succeeded to the business. Meanwhile, another of William’s sons, Charles (1810-71) established his own business Charles Frodsham & Co., which is the longest continuously trading firm of high-quality watches, clocks and regulators.
