Acquaintance: In 1878 it was alleged that Ann had an affair with George at the Wrexham Barracks. Lives with: George (probably a nephew from Wrexham) lived with Esther Eddowes in 1871 and 1881 at 18 George St. Birkenhead.  He was recorded as a boarder.  However, George was also recorded with his parents George and Mary in 1871, so we could have two people here!

Abode: Common Wood, Holt No more children Distrust Distrust Distrust Relative of: Another John and Mary Eddowes family from Wrexham, probably related as Charlotte used as Mother and daughters name.  
Also, both John's Maltsters, and married at Wrexham and Brymbo.   Lives with: Mary (mother of Esther) was living with Richard and Esther and family in Birkenhead in 1861. Relative of: John (and wife Mary) married & Thomas (and wife Charlotte) all buried at Brymbo Representative of: In 1853, Edmund and Mary Eddowes (who had recently married) were marriage witnesses for Esther Eddowes 1803 - 1868 Mary Whitefield 65 65 John and Mary are my 3x great grandparents. 

Marriage bonds for John and Mary are recorded at St. Asaph, Wales 5 Jan and they later married at Brymbo 13 March 1826.

In 1861, living in Birkenhead.

Had boarders Mathew (b.1847) and William (b.1844) and visitors Mary (b.1839) and Thomas (b.1839) Eddowes.  There are probably sons/daughters (or wives of sons) of Mary.

An Ancestry tree, has Mary's maiden name as Holt, but I find no records to support this.
1797 - 1852 John Eddowes 55 55 John and Mary are my 3x great grandparents.  John is from the Beast Market, Wrexham.

13 Mar 1826, John Eddowes, a Maltster married Mary Whitefield by licence.

In 1827, Elizabeth's baptism also shows John a Malster

There is another John Eddowes from Wrexham b.1814, also a Maltster, also married to Mary (see 1851 Manchester census).


9 May 1852, John died aged 55.  The closest birth match is another John from Worthen, Shropshire, son of John and Elizabeth.  He was born about a year after John and Elizabeth Ford maried at Worthern in 1797.  There are no more baptisms there, so the family may have moved on (i.e. to Wrexham).  However, that family moved to Westbury and had Thomas (1799), Edward (1801), William (1803), Sanuel (1805), George (1807), Ann (1810).  This in not our John!

An older John Eddowes had the Tannery in the Beast Market by the Old National School.  It was formerly held by William Poynton, tanner, and after by Mr Walter Jones. Died Nov 19 1799, and was buried at Marchwiel (from Wrexham Parish History).

In 1827, when Elizabeth was baptised, the family were at Bank Street, Wrexham.  They were also at Bank Street when the twins were born, this time John shown as a Carrier.  Must be the same John, as same adress.

In 1835, when Esther was baptised, John was a farmer at Common Wood (Gresford).

In 1851 John (55, a Coal Jagger, born Wrexham) was with his Mary (47, born Gresford), at the Beast Market, Wrexham. They were with children Edmund (17), Esther (15), John and Thomas (both 12), Lydia (10), William (8) and Mathew (4).  Elizabeth and George had already left home and married. In 1851, Another John and Mary Eddowes family were at Manchester, also a Maltster (they married at Wrexham in 1841).

Mary (John's wife) was recorded as a Farmers Widow in 1861, so John must have been a farmer earlier in his life.

Mrs Eddowes and Mr William Owen Eddowes held land and a tannery adjacent to the Beast Market (before 1896, sold in 1824), so may be a parents or close relatives.

In 1836 Esther, daughter of John and Mary, Farmer at Common Wood, was baptised.  Common Wood in by Gresford and Holt, so it seems very likely Thomas of Pike Green, Gresford in 1851 is John's brother.

According to the births of the children, the family moved from Holt to Wrexham about 1839-40.  Unfortunately, there are no Census records for Wrexham 1841 that have survived .

John's death was recorded at Wrexham in 1852.  His wife Mary then moved to her daughter's Esther in Birkenhead where she died in 1868
1835 - 1917 Esther Eddowes 82 82 Esther was born about 1835 and baptised 17 April 1836.  She is my 2x great grandmother.

In 1851, Esther aged 15 born Holt, was with her parents John and Mary and siblings Edmund and John.

On 24 Oct 1853, Esther Eddowes married Richared Brereton at Brymbo, Wrexham.  Esther was aged 18 and Richard 19.

Brearton was spelt "Braeton" in 1861 census.  Esther and her son John were born at Common Wood, Wrexham (1871 census) by Gresfoird.

Living at 18 George St., Birkenhead in 1871 and 1881, with several boarders including George Eddowes living with them.

On 24 Oug 1878 Esther was in the news. She and her niece Martha Eddowes were summonsed for assault on Ann Baker, Martha's sister.

In 1891, Richard and Esther were at the Shropshire Inn, New Road.

Esther Brereton was listed in the 1906 Kelly's Directory: At 11 Willaston Pl, Birkenhead - Bird-in-Hand P.H., although it was actually 11 Chapel Street.

After Esther's husband, Richard dIed, Esther sold the pub (the Bird in Hand) and bought a house, 56 Church Street.

Esther died in 1917 and left a Will, leaving her house and most of her estate to her daughter Anne Hale (see reference for a transcript of the Will).
1838 - 1883 Thomas Eddowes 45 45 Thomas and John were twins, born at Common Wood, sons of John and Mary Eddowes, farmer

In 1851, Thomas (12, born Holt) with parents and family were living at the Beast Market in Wrexham.

31 Dec 1860, Thomas, son of John and Mary Ann daughter of David were married at Liveprool, both of Full Age and parents labourers.  They lived at Penybryn, Wrexham for a short while which is where their firstborn died.

In 1861, Thomas and Mary Ann (both 22) were visiting sister Esther Brereton at Chapel Street, Birkenhead.

In 1871, Thomas and Mary Ann Eddowes (32 & 29) were living in the underground kitchen, under 30 Chapel Street, Birkenhead.  Thomas was a labourer, born at Common Wood, Denbighshire.  This confirms he is the son of John Eddowes (also of Common Wood).  There two surviving daughters Louisa and Elizabeth (4 & 6 mo) were with them.

In 1881, Thomas and Mary (42 & 38), Elizabeth (9), Mary J (5) and Minnie (3) were at 24 Chapel Street, Birkenhead.

In 1891, daughter Mary Jane was from Lower Stansty Farm, Wrexham.

 1847 - 1877 Matthew Eddowes 30 30 In 1851, Matthew was 4, living at the Beast Market, Wrexham with parents John and Mary and 6 older siblings.

On 17 Jan 1857 Matthew was in the news.  As a boy aged 10, had found a gold watch (it had been stolen by Jane Povey), and handed it to his mother Mary. They were living at Beast Market, Wrexham.

Living with mother Mary and Richard and Esther and family in 1861

In Dec 1867, Although never married, he and Mary Ann had a son Matthew Eddowes baptised.
1841 - 1890 Lydia Eddowes 49 49 Lydia was born in 1841, soon after the family had moved from Holt to Wrexham.

In 1851, Lydia was 10, living at the Beast Market, Wrexham with parents John and Mary and 6 siblings.  She married Samuel Sherlock, a railway porter, in Liverpool in 1868 when aged 18.  They lived in Birkenhead for several years before moving to Toxteth Park.
1839 - 1890 Samuel Sherlock 51 51 1867 - 1938 Thomas Sherlock 71 71 1870 - 1875 Samuel Sherlock 5 5 There was a Samuel in boarding school in Birkenhead in 1881, whilst his two brithers stayed with their parents in Kirkdale, Lancashire.  However, two Samuel Sherlocks were born in Birkenhead in 1869/70, so this is likely to be the wrong one. 1879 - 1960 Richard Sherlock 81 81 Richard and baby brother John (aged 1) were paupers, in a home in Fazakerley, Everton in 1891, after both parents died.

He was probably adopted, possibly with baby brother John , as no matching death record for a child in Lancashire in that decade.

In 1921, Richard and Lily were in Birkenhead with Robert, William Samuel, Mary Jane, Lydia and Donald.
1830 - 1893 George Eddowes 63 63 NOTE: There is another Eddowes and Jones family from Wrexham (Thomas and Ann)

There's was no direct evidence that George was a son of John and Mary until a newspaper article in 1878 was found about a family dispute involving Esther Brereton (nee Eddowes) in Birkenhead.  The 1841 Wrexham census records are missing, and by 1851 he was married.  However his oldest son, George, was living with Esther in 1881.

In 1881, George a paver and Mary (53 & 51) were living at 9 Maderia Aoll, Wrexham with El;izabeth (28), Edwin (10), Arthur (9), Elizabeth (6) and George (2)

George must have liked a drink.  "George Eddowes was charged by P.C. Jones, with being drunk and disorderly in High-Street (Wrexham) on the Tuesday night previously (to 28-Jan-1865), and was fined 5s and costs."  Mary was also charged in 1893.

George (53) was a Staff Sergent Denbigh Welsh Fusiliers (R.W.F.) in 1871.  He was pensioned off 16 Dec 1884

In May 1893, George Eddowes died.  George Eddowes is buried in grave 3149 at Wrexham Cemetery, together with Elizabeth (1859-1935) and John (1858-1915)

In 1911, George's wife Mary (85. Wid) was living with her son Edward at the Beast Market, Wrexham.

1829 - 1912 Mary Jones 83 83 Thomas Jones, aged 72, was lodging with George and Mary in 1871.  Was this Mary's father?

18 Aug 1888 Mary alleged an assault by Edward Lewis.  She accused him of knocking her to the ground and kicking her, but it may have been a drunken brawel.  On 18-Feb-1892 Mary Eddowes was fined 2s and 6d for being drunk and disordely at the Beast Market, Wrexham.

In 1911, Mary (85. Wid) was living with her son Edward at the Beast Market, Wrexham.
1852 - 1925 Elizabeth Eddowes 73 73 1852 Birth Cert for Elizabeth confirms the father as George Eddowes, labourer and the mother Mary Eddowes, formerly Jones.

In 1872, Arthur was baptised EDDOWES, abode Cattle Market (Wrexham), with no father named.

Elizabeth is married in 1881 (but still recorded as Eddowes) and has Arthur, Elizabeth and George.  She is still living with her parents.  The Elizabeth that married Thomas Henry Roberts in 1874 is another, the daughter of Ralph.

It appears Elizabeth never married.  She died Sep 1925 aged 73, and is buried at Wrexham with her younger brother Edward in grave 5971 at Wrexham Cemetery.

1854 Emma Eddowes In Q4 1872 Emma Eddowes married Edward Shone or Robert Parry at Wrexham 1855 John Eddowes 1865 - 1871 Arthur Eddowes 6 6 1871 - 1912 Edwin Eddowes 41 41 6 June 1896 Edward Eddowes, Beast Market was summonsed for being drunk at the Beast Market and fined 2s and 6d plus costs.  Was this him?

In 1911, Edward (41 and single) was a Butcher, living at the Beast Market, Wrexham

Edward died in 1912.  Edward and his sister Elizabeth are buried in grave 5971 at Wrexham Cemetery
1870 Mary Ann Quigley Was living at 41 Abbot St, Birkenhead in 1881 with parents Mathew, Maria and siblings. 1893 Cicely Sherlock 1896 Thomas Sherlock 1899 Dorothy Elizabeth Sherlock Dorothy (so possibly another) married William Duff, and they had two children (one of each kind). 1890 John Sherlock Both parents died soon after John was born. It also seems John was not the son of Lydia, as no birth registered with EDDOWES as the mother.

Richard and baby brother John (aged 1) were paupers, in a home in Fazakerley, Everton in 1891, after both his parents died.

He was probably adopted, as no matching death record for a child in Lancashire in that decade.
1905 - 1992 Lydia Mary Sherlock 87 87 In 1936, Edward JEBB married Lydia SHERLOCK  at Birkenhead, Holy Trinity, Wirral (BK2/7/58). 1906 Joseph Sherlock In 1928, Joseph married Winifred Mary Gordon 1910 Gerard Sherlock 1833 - 1868 Edmund (Edwin) Harry Eddowes 35 35 Christened Edmund, but Edwin on Marriage Certificate.

Inh 1852, "Edwin" Eddowes married Mary Dawson.

In 1853, Edmund and Mary Eddowes (who had recently married) were marriage witnesses for Esther Eddowes
<unknown> 1872 - 1927 Arthur (Henry) Eddowes 55 55 In 1881, Arthur (9), Elizabeth (6) and George (4) were living with their grandparents George and Mary Eddowes (51 & 53) at 9 Maderia Hill, Wrexham.

In Q3 1900, Arthur Henry Eddowes married Mary Jane Braisdell at Wrexham.  This was a double marriage with Hugh Williams marrying Sarah Ellen Braisdell.

In 1927, Arthur died.  Arthur is buried in grave 556 at Wrexham Cemetery with his wife Mary Jane Eddowes
1879 George Eddowes In 1881, Arthur (9), Elizabeth (6) and George (4) were living with their grandparents George and Mary Eddowes (51 & 53) at 9 Maderia Hill, Wrexham. 1838 - 1890 John Eddowes 51 51 Thomas and John were twins, born at Common Wood, sons of John and Mary Eddowes, farmer

Marriage recorded as John EDDOWS, so hard to find.
21 Jun 1859 John Eddows, labourer of Birkenhead (21,X) son of John a farmer married Phoebe Parry (19) of Peckforton at Bunbury.  Witnesses were Elizabeth Dodd, Samuel Dutton, John Ledsham & William Spencer.

It appears from the 1871 census, his full name was George John Eddowes, but George was never used.

John had a cousin Samuel Dutton with him in 1861.  Phoebe's mother was Martha Dutton, so presumably Samuel was really Phoebe's cousin.


1843 - 1884 William Eddowes 41 41 William was born in 1843, soon after the family had moved from Holt to Wrexham.

In 1851, William was 8, living at the Beast Market, Wrexham with parents John and Mary and 6 siblings.

In 1861, living with mother Mary and Richard and Esther and family.
1864 Edward William Caine 1893 Charles Caine 1895 Ernest Caine 1897 Elizabeth Caine 1899 Robert Acton Caine 1865 Elizabeth Eddowes Elizabeth, daughter of Charles Eddowes (son of Thomas a farmer) and Ann (Amy) Armstrong married liverpool, 1860. 1777 - 1845 Thomas Eddowes 68 68 This is not the Thomas Eddowes, farmer at Worthen, Shropshire (as he was still there in 1841, aged 60 with his wife Mary, 55, and sons George and Richard both 25).

Thomas and Ralph Eddowes (1782-1870) are unconfirmed brothers.  Both are from Wrexham and their families moved to Barton-upon-Irwell.

Thomas was a Maltster in 1841 for John's marriage.  It was Thomas Hall who was the Maltster at Beast Market in 1796.

Thomas probably had a brother Robert Eddows, and both had daughters Charlotte.
1778 - 1849 Charlotte Morris 71 71 1827 - ~1828 Elizabeth Eddowes 1 1 A second Elizabeth was born 2 years later, so this one must have died an infant. 1829 Elizabeth Eddowes On 1861, but missing from family on 1871 cenus, so may have married or died. 1852 Martha Hughes In 1861, Martha was with parents William and Mary at Dutton Diffeth.  Born Is-y-coed, Denbighshire

Wife of a dock labourer living in Birkenhead in 1878
~1846 Ann Hughes Ann Baker of Rhoss Dhu, near Wrexham was the victim of an assault by her sister Martha in 1878.
Baker An engine driver 1850 - <1892 George Eddowes 42 42 1876 Henry Curwin Sherlock 1814 - 1871 John Eddowes 57 57 WARNING: This is another John and Mary Eddowes family, from Wrexham, also a Maltster when married at Brymbo, but about 10y younger:  And another John Eddowes of the same age, born Wrexham, a Wheelwright in 1851 at Worsley, Lancashire.

In 1841, John and his father Thomas were Maltsters and on his marriage record and also a Maltster on the 1851 census (at Manchester).

In 1861, John and Mary were at 23 Chorlton Street, London Road, Manchester. He was now an Agricultural labourer.

John died in 1871.  The death was registered at Chorlton which is where wife Mary was on the 1871 census.
1820 - 1889 Mary Thomas 69 69 Mary was a servant from Wrexham Regis when she married John. Her father was Robert Thomas, a Joiner.

The 1851 census shows Mary is from Montgomeryshire, and daughter Emma was also born there. They didnt get married in Wrexham until after Emma was born.

In 1881, Mary was living with her unmarried son John at 8 Indigo Street, Chorlton near Manchester.
1839 Emma Thomas Emma Thomas, illegitimate was born in the summer of 1839.  Her birth was registered at Wrexham

In 1851, Emma Eddowes was 12 and at School in Manchester.
1842 - 1870 Elizabeth Eddowes 28 28 In 1842, Elizabeth was born in Wrexham, and then moved to Manchester.

By 1851, Elizabeth was with her family in Manchester.  They had just moved there the previous year (after Mary born).

In 1861, Elizabeth was a house servent (19), in Salford, aged 19, for John G and Mary Susannah Hales and family, a furniture broker (a Pawnbroker) from Gravesend, Kent.  These could be related to the Hale family from Kent.

Elizabeth died in 1870
1843 Charlotte Eddowes Charlotte (18) married Robert Bingley (19, a Smith) at St, John's Manchester 10-Dec-1860.  Her name was recorded as Edwards, not Eddowes.
