Edwin Mandefield - Watchmaker

Edwin Mandefield was born in York, 1847 and trained to be a watchmaker under his uncle, Walter Mandefield, who was a well-respected watchmaker, jeweller, and public figure in York, working from 14 Baker Hill. Once qualified, at the tender age of only 17, the young Mandefield continued to work for his uncle as a bona fide watchmaker until c1867, at which point he set up on his own at 9 Hall Field Road, York, from where this fine watch would have been assembled. Such was the success of his watchmaking business, that Mandefield relocated to larger premises at Goodramgate, York, in c1875, where he remained until his death in 1903.
