Help Identify these OOOOOOOOLD Pocket Watches

Here we have a pair of rather old pocket watches, found little to no info online, so maybe someone here will know more.

First, appears to have a chain drive, movement marked "London" and something that looks like "Tarts" maybe and maybe "S622" under that.  Hallmarks are nearly illegible.  Case is 42mm diameter, 26mm thick, key wind/set, outer shell/case is 49.5mm diameter:

Second up, movement marked "John Verow Hinkley", appears he was a watchmaker in Hinkley (now Hinckley) and this is probably from 1795, maybe.  Also marked on Movement "No 202" at least it looks that way.  Case has hallmarks as follows: HH {anchor} (lion);  these same hallmarks are on the outer shell/case too.  This case is 45mm diameter, thickness of 22.5 (domed flat-top bullseye crystal), outer shell/case is 53mm diameter:
