12 Market Place, Faversham, Kent ME13 7AE

Crow, Francis and Edward

Francis Crow (1755-1835), a clockmaker, and his son Edward Crow, silversmith and historian, are commemorated by a plaque on 8 Market Place, Faversham, where they lived and worked. Edward, mayor in 1837, left writings about town buildings and about civic practice before the Municipal Corporations Act 1835. Research for the 2009 publication, as a CD, of Edward Crow's writings on Faversham history has established that he lived from 1784 to 1867, contrary to his dates on the plaque, which reflect a long-established confusion of the silversmith mayor with another local Edward Crow.
