Descendants of Edwin Henry Cartwright

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Geoffrey Leonard Report 21 Mar 2013 23:18

Looking for descendants of my Great Uncle Edwin Henry Cartwright whose father was Job Cartwright (1805-1881) Birmingham. Edwin married Ann Nash in Holy Trinity Church West Bromwich 1868 & migrated to Yorkshire then North Shields-both were in shoe sales-
Had 7 children of whom Mary Gertrude C corresponded to my Great Aunt Leah Cartwright in Birmingham for many years into the 1920s.
Edwin seems to have been a successful business man and a member of the Buffaloes.
My mother was a Cartwright -Lillian May 1913-2004 and her father William Henry C was a nephew of Edwin.
I have female Cartwright cousins in B'ham but no males. Have tracked branches of the Cs to Canada up to 1916 & living Cartwrights to the USA in New jersey, Virginia & California, of whom 2 are in email exchange with me.
Have photos of Edwin Henry C & many other Cartwrights for comparisons.

Not sure what you're looking for

Have you researched all of the 7 children to whom you refer..found their descendants (if any)?

If you know when and where Edwin was born, put his details in 'search all trees'......see if anyone else is researching him
