Footnotes

  • The firm of Miles and Edwards was active from 1822-1844 and were recorded in directories in 1823 and 1835-39. They had many notable Patrons including the British Ambassador in Paris and the Empress of Russia (1830), the Turkish Ambassador was introduced to the firm by Lord Palmerston (1834). The firm also undertook work at notable houses including Audley End in Essex and Burton Constable in Yorkshire. It is thought that the firm was probably taken over in 1844 by C Hindley and Sons.
