Born in Cumberland, he moved to London in 1688 to work for Thomas Tompion, eventually becoming his partner and marring his niece. He was a patron of John Harrison, loaning him £200 to start work on his H1 chronometer; he also presented him to the Board of Longitude and secured him further funding. Graham is buried in Westminster Abbey, in the same tomb as Tompion.
