Note on Husband: Joseph Hinchcliffe EPWORTH (1) - shared note

Epworth Cutlery stamps: There is a question regarding the oldest "J T Epworth" stamp on a knife. It clearly predates William Edward Epworth, and his father Joseph Thomas Epworth never was directly involved in the cutlery business. So it is most likely associated with his father Joseph Epworth 1855--1907. But why "J T" Epworth? Possibly it was Joseph and Thomas.

 

The further question is the stamp for the cutlery business of William Edward Epworth (1917-1974). This is "J T Epworth and Sons", yet I Richard Epworth am William's only son, just as he was Joseph Thomas Epworth's only son. Probably it was to continue the original business name (though there was no continuity), and "Sons" meant descendants.

 

I (Richard Epworth) have a collection of cutlery, mostly made by my father William (Bill) Edward Epworth, I have just one solitary knife from my Great grandfather's cutlery business Joseph Epworth (1855-1907).

 

"JT Epworth and Sons" was always a bit of a puzzle to me as my father's father was Joseph Tom Epworth, but he only had one son William (my father). It appears that the JT Epworth name originally came from the cutlery business of my Great Grandfather Joseph Epworth (1855-1907),and his brother Thomas Epworth (b 1860). The "J" and the "T" being the two brothers respectively.

 

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).

 

"Epworth" trade stamps.

Variations in the stamps.

"JT.Epworth & Sons' " (note no fullstop between J&T, and the apostrophe at the end)

"J.T.Epworth & Sons"

"J.T.Epworth & Son" (note the singular Son here)

"Epworth & Son"

"Epworth"

 

Update November 2009 by Richard Epworth

It has been brought to my attention that cutlery exists with the stamp: "Epworth EPNS A1", with a registration number which would give a date of 1926!

 

I checked the canteen of modern Epworth cutlery that I have and the date comes out as the end of 1952, almost 1953, entirely feasible. The design is called FANFARE Reg No. 869296

Joseph Epworth 1885 - 1907 was dead then, perhaps his brother Thomas b 1860, d unknown???

(But see the note on Joseph Epworth 1885 - 1907 regarding questions of his death date.)

The mystery deepens as the mark is similar to several others that I have. is it possible that the stamp was passed from Joseph and Thomas Epworth, to William Edwad Epworth, skipping his father's generation, and later replaced by the more ornate stamp?

Note on Husband: Joseph Hinchcliffe EPWORTH (2) - shared note

Possible error on death date. Monica said that "Pops father died young when Pop (Joseph Tom Epworth) was 13 years old" that would be ~1898. However if it was when Monica was 13, it would be d 1928
