Born in Grafton, Massachusetts in 1757, he trained as a clockmaker under his older brother’s Benjamin and Simon Willard.

Within his shop or compound worked clockmakers, cabinetmakers, ornamental painters and ironmongers to cast metal. The result was a large volume of the finest clocks in the region.

The quality and style of his tall clock cases were so superior, that they came to define a form, “The Roxbury Case”. Recognized by collectors then and now for their high level of craftsmanship and fine proportions, they became the measure of the form.

His shop also produced many Massachusetts shelf clocks with both wooden fronts and kidney shaped dials, as well as a dish dial clocks with reverse painted glass panels.
