Pritchard, Edward Cook

My Great Grandfather

I was delighted to read Geoff Dickinson’s page relating to my Great Grandfather.

In 2003, as part of a degree, I wrote a mini thesis on his work and life, with references to his book

‘Under the Southern Cross’.

I hope to revisit the museum within the next few weeks and would be happy to share/ give some materials.

My grandfather, Charles Roger Bower, also a Primitive Methodist Minister and married to Emily, Edward’s daughter ,( also my godmother) had an interesting life of service too- he was imprisoned on a number of occasions for refusing to pay an Education tax which benefited Anglican schools. I have a number of newspaper cuttings which may be of interest.

  • Hi Sue (and Geoff) I’m in the midst of researching a relative of mine – Charles Roger Bower – who seems to be the same person Sue referred to. I would be very interested to see the newspaper cuttings you mention, and also have quite a lot of info about CRB’s siblings, parents, grandparents and so on. Only found this site yesterday – how do we compare notes? Tina
