Black & White version - This is the second in a series of three books covering the history of the Attwell family. Now in its second edition, and considerably updated, this volume extends over 250 years, and recounts the lives of six generations of Attwells during the period 1640 - 1890. The book reveals how a Master of the Waxchandler's Company knew King Charles II, and how the royal association ultimately led to our ancestor's downfall. It shows how the family then moved from London to the Midlands. There they settled and prospered successively as school teachers, a staymaker and then as watchmakers, returning eventually to London where they became probably the foremost family of butchers in the capital. This volume not only describes their lives, but also provides detailed biographical information, numerous family trees, Wills, inventories, details of land dealings and much other fascinating information. Essential reading for all Attwell Family Historians, and an ideal birthday or Christmas gift.
