The clock was "Warrented for Mr. Nathl Goddard" by Simon Willard (1753-1848). Boston merchant Nathaniel Goddard (died 1853) married Lucretia Dana in 1797 and was renting a house on Orange Street in 1798. By the time of his death, he owned a "Mansion House" at #22 Pemberton Square and a 1/24th share of Long Wharf. He left to Lucretia, his wife of nearly sixty years, everything in the Pemberton Square House, including "household furniture, beds, bedding, wearing apparel, clocks (and) watches."
