Edward Sedgwick (Sigsworth) [Leonard Sedgwick / Elizabeth Gregg]
Two baptisms have been found in the Leeds records which could be this Edward. I favour the one shown because of the use of christian names in the family.
However if Edward was the son of John Sedgwick, this line could be connected with the Sidgwicks of Bingley and Dent. Edward wasn't mentioned in the will of John Sidgwick so either he was out of favour with his father or had already received his inheritance. It is unlikely that this is the case though given that he was a potter.
Only the baptism of Edward junior is now missing so my earlier supposition has mainly been proved. Elizabeth's 1850 death certificate indicates that her husband had been a potter.
A Robert of the right age is living in Hunslet Ward in 1841 together with a Jane Sedgwick aged 15 - is this man a member of this family?
