Edmund Sedgwick (b. 1744?)

Edmund Sedgwick [John Sedgwick of Dent?]
b. 1744?
m. Alice Sedgwick, 31 May 1768, Sedbergh, Yrks
d after 1800?

Alice Sedgwick [Abraham Sedgwick / Anne Mason]
bpt 18 August 1745 Garsdale, Yorkshire
m. Edmund Sedgwick
d after 1800?

Witnesses to Edmunds marriage were John Sedgwick and Samuel Cowper. Isabella Sedgwick was married to Samuel Cowper on 25 May 1768 and one of the witnesses was Edmund Sedgwick. The baptism of an Isabella daughter of John took place on 8 October 1738. It is an oral family legend that this Samuel Cowper is related to the famous poet William Cowper.

The only likely baptism found for Edmund is in Dent whilst there are several for Alice. One entry records the baptism of an Alice to Abraham Sedgwick and Anne Mason in 1745 at Garsdale. This would explain the use of the christian name Abraham in this family.

It has recently been established that Edmund is the ancestor of William Walmsley Sedgwick.
