Taphophile Trgaics: Edward John Norsworthy - Plasterer

Monument to Edward John Norsworthy, All Saints Churchyard, Boyne Hill, Maidenhead, Berkshire, England.

"In Loving Memory of My Dear Husband, Edward John Norsworthy who entered into rest January 1st 1895 Aged 26 Years."

Edward John Norsworthy was born in Maidenhead, Berkshire in 1868 to Edwards Norsworthy, a plasterer, and his wife Emma.

In 1871 Edward appears on the Census aged three years old, living with his parents, elder sister Jessey and younger brother William at 21 Victoria Street in Maidenhead, Berkshire. 

By 1881 the family had moved to 7 Victoria Street in Maidenhead.  Edward's younger sisters Emily had been born in 1872 and Clara in 1874.  Sadly in 1882, 10 year old Emily was to pass away.  In 1889 Edward's mother Emma passed away.

Edward was an avid football play and played several matches for Boyne Hill Football Club.

Two years after the death of Emma the family are still together in Victoria street.  William is working as a house painter, while Edward has followed his father in becoming a plasterer.  Living with the family  at the time is their cousin Emily Edwards.

In 1892 in Eton, near Windsor, Edward John married Charlotte Sarah Jefferys.  Sadly Edward was to die just three years later in 1895.

In 1900 the widowed Charlotte married William Henry Pillar, a police constable.  They remained together until William's death in 1939.  Charlotte followed William to the grave in 1956.  They had no children.

  1. My post for next week is for a Norsworthy! Wouldn't that have been a fun coincidence if I'd had it ready in time for this week?!


Thank you for your comment.
