of Liverpool


James Condliff set up at 32 Gerrard Street, Liverpool in 1816 and his business went on to become one of the most successful in the country, known in particular for his superb regulators and skeleton clocks. The Condliff family was made up of James, Joseph, John and Thomas, and appears to run from 1816 to the 1940’s.[1]

A nicely-restored 1838 tower clock by James Condliff can be seen at close quarters in the tower of St Mary's Church, Birkenhead Priory
