He was an important maker who may well have acted as a journeyman for Justin Vuilliamy and was taught the art of jewelling by his friend the chronometer maker Thomas Earnshaw. This caused a problem for Frodsham when he was asked by the Board of Longitude to give evidence regarding a reward for Earnshaw following the latter's claim to have improved the detached escapement. William Frodsham died in 1807 having outlived his son, the clockmaker William the younger born 1755, by 18 months and with whom he formed the partnership William Frodsham & Son in 1779.
