Watchmaker Charles Clay was a native of Emley near Huddersfield in Yorkshire. Clay applied for a patent for a repeating, musical watch in February 1716; however, Daniel Quare disputed this patent and while the Attorney General made his decision in favour of Charles Clay, the Clockmaker’s company strongly supported Quare’s claim – Quare was a renowned maker and former Master of the Company. Clay’s patent application was finally dismissed after a year. In 1720 Clay established his workshop near St. Mary-Le Strand in London and in 1723 he was appointed clockmaker to His Majesty’s Board of works. He held the position at least until 1737; Clay presumably died sometime in 1739 – his will is dated January 18, 1739.
