Burton, Kendal who is a recorded clock maker from a long line of family clock makers in Kendal :Emanuel Burton (I) (1732-1809) — Clockmaker Emanuel Burton (I) was born in Highgate in 1732, the third son of William (I) and Jane. He married Deborah Lancaster in 1756 in Kendal and lived in Stricklandgate, where William and Joseph were born, until 1760. From 1761 to about 1766, the family lived in Fish Market in Stramongate Ward, for which Emanuel was Churchwarden in 1764 and 1765.16. Around 1767 they moved to Allhallows Lane in Highgate, where Emanuel's father still lived, and here they stayed until Deborah's death in 1805. Emanuel may have moved to live with his son James in Whitehaven, or possibly died on a visit, for he was buried there in November 1809.17. He was identified as a clockmaker on several occasions — when Churchwarden in Kendal in 1765, in the Universal British Directory of 1790 when Emanuel Burton senior and junior were recorded, and finally in the burial register of St. James's, Whitehaven. Emanuel Burton (II) (1764-1830) — Clockmaker Emanuel (II) was born in Fish Market in 1764, the third son of Emanuel (I), but the oldest to survive to maturity. He must surely have learned the trade of clockmaking from his father and grandfather in Allhallows Lane, where the family had moved about 1767. He married Margaret Newby in 1786 and their first child, Emanuel, was born in Finkle Street the next year. In 1789, Emanuel (II) bought two front burgage houses on the south side of Finkle Street for £280 from Eleanor Bell; from Land Tax records and Jury Books it is found that he remained in Finkle Street for the remainder of his days. He is variously described as clockmaker or watchmaker and must have been active as both; when he was buried, aged 65, on 18 February 1830, he was "Clock and Watch Maker and Burgess of Kendal".
