Paulson Family links to Edwinstowe Primitive Methodist Chapel
Charles Paulson was born in Swinderby, Lincolnshire in 1849. He served his time as an apprentice wheelwright in Croxton Kerrial, Leicestershire. He became resident in Edwinstowe, together with his wife and young daughter c1872. He was employed on the Earl Manvers Estate, as a wheelwright until c1897.
His great grandson Michael Paulson, contacted the Edwinstow Historical Society after he came across an article about the Primitive Methodists in Edwinstowe. He wrote:
‘Charles Paulson’s great passion in life was his commitment to the Primitive Methodist Society in Edwinstowe. The Officiating Minister at his funeral service at Worksop in 1926 paid tribute to his committed and saintly life; noting his contribution to the Primitive Methodist Society during his years in Edwinstowe.’
Mr Paulson was able to send further information about the family’s links with Edwinstowe and with his permission the History Society has added pictures and produced an article which can be downloaded from the link below.
