I have been here ever since a quarter after three on thursday last, by the Shrewsbury Clock, which I am fortunately enabled absoutely to ascertain, because Mrs Stent once lived at Shrewsbury or at least at Twekesbury...
Here is the passage from Henry IV, Part I, which makes mention of "The Shrewsbury Clock":
Ja is obviously quoting The Bard and making fun of the sligthly deranged, or so it seems to me ,Mrs Sstent. Living in Tewkesbury in Gloucestershire is not really living near Shrewsbury.......they are some distance apart .But they have similar sounding name so JA would be tempted to play about with them...or, so it seems to me....
