Edward Wakelin (d. 1784)

Edward Wakelin was the son of Edward Wakelin, a baker of Uttoxeter in the county of Staffordshire. He was apprenticed to John Le Sage in June 1730, on payment of £21.00. By 2nd November 1747 he had joined the famous George Wickes (latterly Wickes & Netherton) at Panton Street, Haymarket, London, taking charge of the silversmith’s side of Wickes’ business from then onwards, later forming a partnership with John Parker I to form Parker & Wakelin as a successor to Wickes & Netherton from 1758. This partnership lasted until 1777 when Wakelin’s son John and his partner William Taylor took the business forward. Wakelin died in 1784, his obituary reading “At Mitcham Surrey Mr. Edw. Wakelin formerly a goldsmith in Panton Street, Died 7 Feb 1784” (the Gentleman’s Magazine, p. 152).
