Biographical Details He assisted Grinling Gibbons and William Emmett at Nottingham House (now Kensington Palace) in the years after William III’s accession in 1688, laboriously working with Emmett on such items as ‘1405 feet of Ionicke modillion’ and ‘942 feet of picture frame over ye Doores and Chimneyes’. Very little of this work survives. Green suggests that he may be the Alcock who carved a head of the King for the Tower of London Royal Armouries in 1702.
