Edward EDWARDS, bricklayer to baker

Then there was Brixton's own Edward EDWARDS, the Bexley bricklayer.

But, then there was Edward EDWARDS, the Flintshire coalminer of Hope.

But, let's not forget about Staffordshire's own Edward EDWARDS
, the Cheshire baker

Faces of Richard - Penzance to Hartlepool

Your not alone!

What about the Penzance jeweller Richard Richards
or the Hartlepool iron moulder, or the Staffordshire coach painter.

Once upon a time a Century or so ago, a lad named
Richard RICHARDS would travel from the confines of his home in Kent to travel to St. Mary le Bow to earn a bob or two
as a porter.

GEORGE GEORGE, Somerset to Islington

GEORGE GEORGE - Faces & Places

George George is not George II, but there are many
in different places.

There was the Somerset "hurdle maker"
and George George the Islington brass trimmer.

All George George connections wanted, the entry fee is
the years, places and occupations be it Dr. George George or
private George George, but let's not forget about
Georgette George, be she a matchstick girl, teacher or
nurse.
