View Full Version : Latchford family

Grateful contact with anyone who has come across the Latchfords of Staffs/Warwickshire, and later London (and Australia). I'm interested in Joseph Latchford who had sons John (c. 20 June 1761, Walsall, mother Judith) and Edward (12 Feb 1775, Birmingham, mother Maria).

Joseph was a steel buckle-maker in Barn Street, Wolverhampton. The sons moved to London where they became successful bit, bridle and spur manufacturers - they both had various foundries in the West End, and were granted the Royal Warrant. Edward's business in Upper St Martin's Lane was still there in 1914.

I'm especially interested in the earlier origins of the family, Joseph's marriage details and any burials of Latchfords in the Black Country/Birmingham area.
