Markwick, James. Two are recorded, father and son. James senior was apprenticed June 1656 and freed 1666. He seems to have had a temperamental disposition. In 1677 he was fined for abuse of the Master; in 1686 he refused to pay a fine and left the Clockmakers' Court in an angry manner. In 1682 he was an Assistant but from 1691 he attended very irregularly, for which he was cautioned. After January 1699/1700 he stopped attending. He may have worked until 1706. James junior was made a Freeman of the Company by patrimony in 1692. In 1716 he was an Assistant, in 1717 Warden and in 1720 he became Master.
A double basket top bracket clock by James Markwick is illustrated in Percy Dawson The Iden Clock Collection, Antique Collectors' Club, 1987, p.237.
