Note on Husband: Joseph Hobson EPWORTH (3) - shared note

Epworth Cutlers: There have been several cutlers in my Epworth family since the late 1700s, starting with my Great Great Grandfather Joseph Epworth 1784-1860, and all living in Sheffield, Yorkshire, England. I am a blood relative of the following Epworth Cutlers:

Joseph Epworth 1784-1860 Cutlers Apprentice in 1798, probably the first, as his father was a Yeoman

John Epworth 1777-? Cutler

Joseph Epworth 1815-1883 Spring Knife Cutler (may have been the J of JT Epworth& Sons)

Thomas Epworth 1826-1899 Cutler (may have been the T of JT Epworth& Sons)

Samuel Hobson Epworth 1808-1886 Spring Knife Cutler

Mary Ann Hobson Epworth 1817-1899

Thomas Epworth 1860-? Pen Knife Cutler

Joseph Epworth 1855-1907 Cutler

William Edward Epworth 1917 1974 Cutler

 

Richard Epworth 1945-........

 

My grandfather (Joseph Tom Epworth) had never been a cutler, though he may have been intended to follow in his fathers footsteps (Joseph Epworth 1855-1907), rather than becoming a clerk and a businessman (hosiery). He helped his son William E Epworth set up a cutlery business.
