William Molineaux 1830-1902
William Molineaux - an iron master in Bradley, Bilston (he owned 3 ironworks there) and was born in the village of Old Park, Telford and brought up on Shropshire Row, Bilston ( a small hamlet of folk who had moved to Bilston from east Shropshire). His dad Thomas Molineaux was a simple iron puddler and a Methodist lay preacher. His daughter, my gt grandma Jenny Molineaux (1862-1949) married my gt grandfather in 1884. I apparently met my gt grandma just before she died - I would have been almost 3 at the time.

The young chap is
Arthur was the third of the 5 sons of my gt gt grandfather Edward Cullwick (1819-1869), my gt grandfather Josiah Frank (1857-1923) was the fourth and Evelyn's (Don's wife) grandfather was the fifth - Herbert Ernest (1859-1945).
Arthur Samuel Cullwick 1855-1937
Arthur became the owner of a lock company and lived in Douro House, Waterloo Road in Wolverhampton. His daughter Doris married Reginald Tildesley, who owned the Ford franchise in the Wolverhampton area till he died in a motor accident about 1955.
All 5 Cullwick Brothers, I believe, were Methodist lay preachers. And I rather think they were all Councillors or Aldermen at various times. The eldest - Edward Lewis Cullwick (1848-1909) died in office whilst serving as Mayor of Wolverhampton.
