James McCabe junior succeeded his father of the same name, he was one of the most successful English clock and watchmakers of the 19th century. He was apprenticed to Reid and Auld of Edinburgh and was admitted to the Clockmaker’s Company as a Free Brother in 1822. Around this time McCabe entered into short lived partnership with Strahan (probably Charles who gained his freedom of the Clockmaker’s Company in 1815). From 1826 James McCabe managed the business alone from 97 Cornhill until 1838 when he was forced to temporarily relocate to 32 Cornhill due to a major fire at the Royal Exchange.
