AcquaintanceIn 1878 it was alleged that Ann had an affair with George at the Wrexham Barracks. Lives withGeorge (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 Hostile Relative ofAnother John and Mary Eddowes family from Wrexham, probably related as Charlotte used as Mother and daughters name. Also, both Johns Malsters, so possible son and father. Mary (mother of Esther) was living with Richard and Esther and family in Birkenhead in 1861. 1803 - 1868 Mary Whitefield 65 65 Living in Birkenhead in 1861.

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.
1796 - 1852 John Eddowes 56 56 John was a Malster on his marriage record of 1826, and on Elizabeth's baptism of 1827. Another John Eddowes from Wrexham was also a Malster (see 1851 Manchester census).

An older John Eddowes had the Tannery in the Beast Market by the Old National Schoold.  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.

In 1851 John (55, a Coal Jagger) was with his second wife, also Mary (47), with Children Edmund, Esther, John, Thomas, Lydia, William and Mathew.  Elizabeth and George had already left home and married.

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.

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 .
1835 - 1917 Esther Eddowes 82 82 Brearton was spelt "Braeton" in 1861 census.  Esther and her son John were born at Common Wood, Wrexham (1871 census).

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 - 1891 Thomas Eddowes 53 53 Thomas and John were twins, born at Common Wood, sons of John and Mary Eddowes, farmer

Visiting sister Esther Brereton in 1861

Thomas (42), Mary (38), Mary Jane (5) and Minnie (3) were at 24 Chapel Street, Birkenhead in 1881

Relative ofAlso moved to Birkenhead, so likely related Relative ofSisters (as shoen by marriege records) Relative ofSisters 1847 - 1877 Matthew Eddowes 30 30 On 17 Jan 1857 Matthew was in the news.  As a boy aged 10, he 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
1841 - 1890 Lydia Eddowes 49 49 1839 - 1890 Samuel Sherlock 51 51 1867 Thomas Sherlock 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. 1880 Richard Sherlock 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, possibly with baby brother John , as no matching death record for a child in Lancashire in that decade.
1830 - 1893 George Eddowes 63 63 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 census records are missing, and by 1851 he was married.  However his oldest son, George, was living with Esther in 1881.

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 fines 5s and costs."  Mary was also charged in 1893.

George was a Staff Sergent Denbigh Welsh Fusiliers (R.W.F.) in 1871.  He was pensioned off 16 Dec 1884, aged 53.
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.
1852 Elizabeth Eddowes Elizabeth is married in 1881 (but still recorded as Eddowes) and has Arthur, Elizabeth and George.  She is still living with her parents. 1854 Emma Eddowes 1855 John Eddowes 1864 Arthur Eddowes 1871 Edwin Eddowes 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? 1870 Mary Ann Quigley Was living at 41 Abbot St, Birkenhead in 1881 with parents Mathew, Maria and siblings. 1894 Cicely Sherlock 1896 Thomas Sherlock 1899 Dorothy Sherlock Dorothy married William Duff, and they had two children (one of each kind). 1890 John Sherlock Both parents died soon after John was born.

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 Lydia Sherlock 1907 Joseph Sherlock 1910 Gerard Sherlock 1833 - 1868 Edmund (Edwin) Harry Eddowes 35 35 Christened Edmund, but Edwin on Marriage Certificate.
Thomas Henry Roberts ~1872 Arthur Roberts 1875 Elizabeth Roberts 1879 George Roberts 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.

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 Birth registered in 1844 but 42 when he died, so possibly born late 1843.

Living with mother Mary and Richard and Esther and family in 1861
1777 - 1845 Thomas Eddowes 68 68 This is not the Thomas Eddowes, farmeer at Worthern, Shropshire (as he was still there in 1841).

Thomas was a Malster in 1841 for John's second marriage.  It was Thomas Hall who was the Malster at Beast Market in 1796
1778 - 1849 Charlotte Eddowes 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 - 1838 Elizabeth Eddowes 9 9 On 1861, but missing from family on 1871 cenus, so may have married or died. 1829 Ann Eddowes Ann was missing on the 1841 census so is assumed to have died.

Ann Eddowes may have married in Montgomeryshire (her mothers home county) in 1851.
~1850 Martha Hughes 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 George Eddowes 1876 Henry Curwin Sherlock 1814 - 1871 John Eddowes 57 57 This is another John and Mary Eddowes family, from Wresham, also a Malster, but about 10y younger:

In 1841, John and his father Thomas were Malsters and on his marriage record and also a Malster 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.
1838 Emma Eddowes In 1851, Emma 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.

Charlotte Bingley, 38 was married in 1871, a charwoman and living with her parents. There is no marriage record (except one for Charlotte Eliza Eddowes in Lamberth, London in 1865), so she probably had a son but never married!
1848 Mary Eddowes In 1861 Mary, aged 12, was a Nurse and the oldest child still at home. 1851 Thomas Eddowes Thomas (20) was with his mother 1856 John Eddowes John was 5 on the 1861 census

In 1881, John, aged 25 was still unmarried, living with his mother Mary Eddowes (63) at 8 Indigo Street, Chorlton, Manchester. 

In 1882, John married Jane Ramage from Glossop at Salford St Clements (C47/1/174). Another John (Thomas) Eddowes, son of John the Wheelwright, married Eliza Muster in Swinton St Peter, Salford the same year.

In 1991, Jane died at Chorlton in Q2/1891
1801 Thomas Eddowes In 1851, Thomas Eddowes, aged 60 was married to Elizabeth, aged 65.  He has dau Elizabeth (15), and sons Charles (12) and Henry (10). Presumably these three children are not theirs and they are too old.

The family moved to Tranmere, Birkenhead probably after Thomas died, although there is (another) old Thomas Stanton Eddowes from Wrexham there in 1861, 1871 and 1881. That Thomas (an anchor and chain maker) was in Little Meolse in 1851.
~1843 Robert Bingley Robert was 19 when he married Charlotte "Edwards" (but should be Eddowes) in 1860.  Her father John was a Maltster (which confirms the marriage is the correct one). 1863 - <1911 John E Bingley 48 48 Aged 8 in 1871, living with mother Charlotte and Grandmother Mary Eddowes at Chorlton on Medlock, Manchester.

In 1879, married Sarah MacDonald at Salford.  In 1911, Sarah  had been married 32 years, grocer and sweets (shop), now widowed and had one child that died.  Sarah died in Salford 1940, aged 84.

There was also a wealthy John and Elizabeth Eddowes family from Wrexham who both left Wills.

In 1851, Thomas S Eddowes (47) was an Anchor and Chain Maker living in Little Meols.

In 1860, 1864 and 1869, Thomas's three sons, all merchants, married at Bidston, Wirral.

In 1871, Amelia (25) was a visitor (but not a lodger) at a lodging house run by Elizabeth Williams (unm, 70), possibly an old Aunt.
1835 - 1905 John Eddowes 70 70

John Died in 1906, leaving his effects to Joseph William Hort Lynn.
1850 - 1852 Arthur Randolph Eddowes 1 1 A R Eddowes was 6 months on the 1851 census. 1836 - 1899 Stanton Eddowes 63 63 In 1864, Stanton married Annabella Hort Lyne at Birkenhead.

WARNING Thomas Eddowes (22) a labourer son of Thomas a gardener married Mary Roberts (23) 29 Dec 1863.  This cant be her brother, so I may have the wrong Emma?
