Daniel Munroe (1775-1859);
case attributed to William Munroe (1778-1861)
Daniel Munroe apprenticed with clockmaker Simon Willard in Roxbury and then established his own company in Concord from 1797 to 1808. He partnered with his brothers Nathaniel, also a clockmaker, and William, a cabinetmaker, to produce fashionable clocks. In the early nineteenth century, Concord was home to several clockmakers whose timepieces were of the highest quality. This clock descended in the Merriam family of Concord.
