Note: Comments: Edward PULFORD (ca 1789?-1871), my GGG Grandfather, is said to have been born in Leeds or Yarmouth, Norfolk. He married Sarah Lloyd AVIS (1798-1854) at St. Martin-in-the-Field on 9 Apr 1825 (parish record, 1825, page 361). Three of their children were born in London before 1825: Frances 1821, William Edward 1822, and Sarah Sofia 1824. Family tradition says they were married in 1820. The baptismal record for William Edward , St. James, Westminster, says Edward and Sarah lived at 4 Crown Ct. and that he was an office clerk. Two more sons were born in London: Henry Thomas Loy (Lloyd) 1826, and Edwin Avis 1828.
Family accounts say that Edward and his brother George were taken into the tailoring business by their father John. There were Pulford
tailors in Westminster as early as 1820. I have not been able to
document a connection between John, Edward, or George and the family of Robert Pulford and his sons, tailors for many years at 23 and later at 65 St. James Street, Westminster.
Around 1830 Edward moved to Walton-on-Thames, Surrey and took up farming. Francis (Frank) Whant (Want) ca1831 and Walter Scott
(William?) ca. 1832 were born there.
In 1833 the family left Surrey and embarked on the ship Canada for New York, arriving on August 26th. The ships manifest lists Edward 35,
Sarah 35, Frances 12, Henry, 8, Edwin 6, Frank 4, William 1 yr 6 mos.
They were still in New York when my gg grandfather, John Pulford was
born on the 4th of July, 1837, but the family soon went on to Ontario,
Canada where they became farmers, tradesmen, and builders of wagons and carriages.
When he was 13 John walked to Detroit, Michigan and operated a hotel until he was commissioned Lt. in the 5th Michigan Voluntary Infantry Regiment. He served through the Civil War and in the end Col. (Brevet Brigadier General Pulford) marched the regiment home. He later obtained a commission as Lt. in the Regular Army and went out west to protect the stage coach routes. I have assembled a history of his military service.
He was soon granted a medical retirement and returned to Michigan
where he married a second time, took his wife to London for a visit,
and sired a son who served in both WWI and WWII. I have a picture of myself sitting on the front porch steps with my gg grand mother Ida
Alfretta Pulford Sumner.
There are many obvious missing stories and unsolved problems in this
bit of family history. All suggestions or contributions will be most
gratefully received[6]
