On receiving John Randalls 1880 book of 'Madeley', under the heading'
The Steam Engine and its Infancy' (p 362 on) it refers to Madeley
inventors of the names Glazebrooks, Williamses and Hornblowers, along
with James Watt.
It refers to drawings: "No.9 Glazebrook's scheme to effect a
perpendicular motion, 1794" and
"No.48 Drawings of an engine under James Glazebrook's patent
Feb.24th.1799, beautifully drawn and coloured."
The only James Glazebrook I can find in Madeley, is the one in
Ironbridge Market Square in the 1841 census, aged 71 occupation grocer.
Does anyone know if this is the same James Glazebrook or have any
infomation to confirm or refute this, please.
In the 1841 census, the street or square, tenant heads in order are:
Sarah Farrington(50), Thos Poole(56), James Glazebrook(71), Thos
Lewis(30), Jessa Crumpton(68),Mary Salisbury(68), Ann Farnworth(33),
Frederick Poole(28), William Goodwin(50), Edward Woof(39), Elizabeth
Weaver(70), Elizabeth Roberts(60).
If anyone has actual addresses for these houses, I would be most
grateful, esp the Pooles and Glazebrooks.
In reply to Barbara Evans query, there were Williams at schedule 6,
click on the second input of schedule(1-12) in
Mary Williams(46), here, is one of my Tomlins mob. I hoped that the
administrator would tidy the site and delete the first (1-12) and
(13-24), but dont know how to get hold of him.
My maternal grandfather Samuel George WILLIAMS was the landlord of the Three Tuns, Ironbridge in the late 1890s and 1900s, later living in Church Hill. His wife Sarah Hannah(JONES) was the daughter of .(? William) JONES and ------ MORGAN, who had 18 children , raising 12, Grandfather died in Birmingham in 1919 in the flu epidemic, Grandmother lived into the 1960s in Shrewsbury.
Does anyone know them or about the Three Tuns which I think was converted into shops and flats?
