Narrative and Notes

John EDWARDS was a millwright and engineer. This information is confirmed on both Enoch's and Matilda's marriage certificates, although he didn't live long enough to see either marry. According to Enoch (and the 1841 census) he was a millwright, while Matilda said engineer. His death certificate confirms that he was both.

A millwright and engineer at the beginning of the 19th century would have been responsible for the construction and maintenance of all the mechanical devices within a mill. This would include grinding cereals, brewers, manufacturing or any other endeavour. Millwrights tended to work on the moving parts while engineers would be more concerned with the steam engines that were increasingly replacing water, horse or human power. A millwright would have had to apprentice to a master millwright.

A family oral memory has it that John only spoke Welsh, however his marriages to women with English names suggests that this is not entirely accurate, but Welsh might have been his parents native tongue.

According to the 1841 census he was born between 1796 and 1801 in Warwickshire, however his 1844 death certificate gives an age of 49 suggesting a birth date of 1794/5.

A possible christening for John Edwards is on 31 Jan 1794 at St Martin, Birmingham, by John and Sarah Edwards. They also christened a daughter Sarah Ann on 29 Jun 1792, who died of 'decline' and was buried on 13 Nov 1792. There are other possible births for John so it not possible to confirm which, if any Birmingham birth is correct, especially as several John EDWARDS of the same age were active in Birmingham. Possible Birmingham baptisms include:

1791 by John and Mary

1792 by John and Sarah

1793 by Joseph and Sarah

1794 by John and Sarah

1798 by Benjamin and Sarah

1799 by George and Catharine

1799 John and Rebecca

1800 by John and Lucy

But John may have been from outside Birmingham, indeed a compelling engineering related narrative might be correct (see John's father's record).

John's first marriage was with Elizabeth BASHFORD who he married at St Martins, Birmingham in 1824. Elizabeth died two years later and was buried at St Mary's Cemetery, Birmingham on 15 Aug 1826 aged 23.

Six months later John married Sarah REYNOLDS in January 1827 and they baptised their first child in December that year. John and Sarah had seven children between 1827 and 1840.

John died of consumption (tuberculosis) on 7 September 1844 at home at 1 Court, New Summer Street in the presence of his wife Sarah. He was buried in the Chapelry of St Paul, in the parish of St Martin, in Birmingham, on 15 September 1844.
