Edward Whitehead, 1762 Hawarden
« on: Sunday 02 April 17 09:33 BST (UK) »
Hi there,
I was wondering if someone could help me with this person. I am trying to find out what happened to him. The only record I have so far is his baptism in 1762.
He had 4 brothers, all stone masons, who ended up in partnership together in London. I can't find any records for Edward in Wales or London. I'm guessing he could have died young but don't know for sure.
Any help would be much appreciated.
Thank you very much
Vicky

I found these records -wondering if it could be the same Edward Whitehead:

Burial: 30 Oct 1791 St James, Toxteth, Lancashire, England
Edward Whitehead - son of Edward Whitehead & Mary
    Died: 28 Oct 1791
    Occupation: Stone mason
    Register: Burials 1790 - 1796 from the Bishop's Transcripts, Page 40, Entry 106
    Source: LDS Film 1468979 (from the Lancashire online records)

Baptism: 13 Jan 1788 St Paul, Liverpool, Lancashire, England
Nelly Whitehead - daughter of Edward Whitehead
    Born: 14 Nov 1787
    Abode: Virginia Street
    Occupation: Stone-mason
    Register: Baptisms 1769 - 1812, Page 14, Entry 5
    Source: LDS 1656373

Edward Whitehead

Spouse's Name
Mary Thomas
Event Date
1786
Event Place
Saint James, Liverpool, Lancashire, England


I know that his brother James was in Liverpool between 1786 and 1788 and he was also a stone mason.
How would I connect the two though?
Anyone got any thoughts?
Thank you in advance
Vicky

Hi Vicky
the baptism for Edward Whitehead (26 September 1762) shows parents Peter and Elizabeth, so you can discount the burial on 30 Oct 1791 St James, Toxteth, Lancashire, England, as parents names are different

I thought that Edward, the one who died in 1791, might be the son of Edward born in 1762. That maybe he had a son who died young

There are two records that might possibly go with the Edward and Mary you have identified,but do not prove it is the correct Edward.Both records are at www.lan-opc.org.uk

Edward Whitrhead,Juvenal St,Toxteth, burial 15 Feb 1821 aged 58
(birth therefore 1762/1763)

Mary Whitehead,Trafalgar St,burial 1843 aged 72
(birth therefore 1770/1771,slightly young for quoted marriage)

There is a newspaper snippet of the time that clearly identifies her,at that address, as "relict of Edward Whitehead,late marble mason of this town"

Regards
Roger

Wow great thank you for finding these. The age of Edward certainly matches as i know he was born 1762 and the job. Seems likely it is him but i can't prove it. Maybe not the right marriage though. I will keep investigating.
Thank you again for this.
