Family History of Robert John Edkins

In the later years of the 19th century, my Grandfather, Thomas Edkins, born June 19th 1844 left the family house in Wootton Wawen to live on the outskirts of Birmingham in the area of Smethwick. As a young man he worked for a number of years in the thriving brass industry, before starting a business of his own. During this time he courted and married his wife Sarah Ann Miners, so starting the Edkins chain down to the present day. The dates are correct, all the facts are taken from a family Bible dating back to the start of the 19th century.

The Edkins family have lived in many parts of the country. Starting from Wootton Wawen, the Edkins have lived in Smethwick, Edgbaston, Erdington, Kingstanding, Sutton Coldfield, Yardley, Sheldon (all within the Birmingham area) also Dosthill, Fazely, Tamworth and Eastbourne.
