John Edward Walford

John Edward Walford

Chairman of the Committee to build The City of London School near Blackfriars Bridge, 1880. Died Surrey.

We found this at CuriousFox: I am looking for any information on Edward and Sarah WALFORD (née COOK). They had thirteen children including my great, great grandfather John Edward WALFORD born in Maiden Lane in 1822. Edward was a tea dealer and John Edward, who married Eliza LAMB at St Botolph, Aldgate in 1845, was a builder. He was common councilman of Bread Street ward 1874-1904 and as chairman of the City of London School Committee in 1880 he laid the foundation stone of the new school buildings on the Embankment.
