Journal by edmondsallan

edmondsallan - The edmonds family who established the " Edmonds Baking Powder Company " in christchurch . nz are not related to the original ancestor to arrive in the Bay of Islands - ( John Samuel Edmonds ) and are unrelated to his second son Arthur. The edmonds " baking powder " family are related to " william Edmonds" born 1200 & eventually became a sheriff in the County of warwickshire england . my research showed that some of this family lineage went from Warwickshire , England for a brief period then went to Southern Ireland. They went to New england , USA during the Irish Potato famine They then split up again and one family went melbourne to mine gold at Ballarat, Australia They were unsuccessful in mining. However they survived by selling Baking ingredients to the Gold field camps After they saved a small amount of monies They then moved to Hokitkia , Westcoast nz. , tried again to for gold in the ( now ghost town of stafford , on the scenic walking trail )once again unsuccessfully , they also tried again in otago unsuccessfully and reverted back to selling baking ingredients . which became NZ famous . Of Interest John Samuel edmonds , before they had the edmonds name Were known as " Men of Stone " in Kent . The & eventually travelled to the Stone Quaries in Kent However thats another story regards edmondsallan
