Magnus Volk was a watch and clock maker working in Brighton, Sussex and would've been the retailer of this clock having imported it from Paris. He was originally from Langenbach, Baden (now part of Germany) and moved to Brighton around 1845 when it is known he had a shop at 11 Union Street. He married in 1850 at around the time he moved to either 35 or 45 Western Road, moving to number 40 in circa 1858, then moving again to 51 Preston Street in circa 1867. He died in 1869.
Interestingly, he was the father of the engineer, also called Magnus Volk, born at Western Road in 1851, who built the famous electric railway, Volks Electric Railway, that runs along Brighton seafront, as well as building the Brighton clock tower. Magnus Jnr was also the first person in Brighton to equip his home with electric lighting.
