This is certainly of interest to me for the eventual - a long term 
project, I'm afraid - completion of Christopher Dalton's "Wiltshire" book.

I did check, though, and Christopher hasn't recorded any other instances 
of chiming machines - or other work - by Rawlings in Wiltshire.

In Michael Snell's book /Clocks and Clockmakers of Salisbury/ (1986) he 
mentions that Messrs Rawlings of Tisbury made the frame of the Tisbury 
church clock, apparently in 1795 when Thomas Osmond (senior) made the 
working parts of the clock [although this looks "wrong" in the light of 
what Brian has found, and I wonder if Rawlings replaced the original 
clock frame at a later date]
