Daniel Childs was the son of William Childs and Ann Deacon. His mother died when he was about 12 years of age. His father never remarried. His father was a Butcher by trade and had aquired several properties in the town of Lutterworth, England. Daniel became a shoemaker and was very well known in the area of Lutterworth and in the town of Leicester. It was told by Edwin that his father made shoes for Queen Victoria and her court, before she became the Queen. One time when Daniel went to the Palace, Victoria held one of Edwin`s sisters on her lap. Daniel was very faithful in attending St. Mary`s Church of England and was given two large Bibles for his attendance. The Bibles have his name enscribed on the binding. My father was given the Bibles when he was a young man and before his death he gave the Bibles to my younger brother to keep them in the Childs family. In the front of the Bible Daniel wrote the birth and death dates of all of their children. It is written in a very pretty old English Script writing. Daniel never came to the US, he died in 1838.
Daniel's Will was found in the record office in Leicester, England by Phyllis Clifford, my father's cousin.
