Facts and Events
Edward Turner was baptised on 26th May 1767 at Heckington in Lincolnshire, son of Elizabeth Turner, formerly Gray, and her husband Philip Turner, a farmer. When Edward's father Philip wrote his will in 1803, Edward was one of the main beneficiaries with his brother John.
In 1838, Edward was described in his brother John's will as a farmer of Bicker, a few miles south-east of Heckington. He appears living at Bicker Fen in the 1841 census, living with just a housekeeper. Edward lived to be about 81 years old and was buried at Bicker on 25th May 1848. He left a will, but this has yet to be researched.
