GENERAL NOTE:
It is not likely to be this John but there is information about a John MORCOMBE who built the town clock at Hartland in 1622-23 and "new made" it in 1657-58 (the accounts suggest it was converted from balance to pendulum). He was clockmaker at Barnstaple from 1622-58. Notes from "Old Clocks and their Makers" by F J BRITTEN and "Watchmakers of the World" by G H BAILLIE.
