Edward Milward (1765-1833)

From Historical Hastings Wiki


The local journalist and author Thomas Brandon Brett (1816-1906) recalled that Edward had been mayor every other year for half a century, a total of twenty four times[1], but was an invalid for some few years before his death and left the mayoral business in the hands of his son and Mr John Goldsworthy Shorter. ‘During his long life he had become a very rich man, and was less a philanthropist or public benefactor than was his son.’ His remains were deposited in the family vault in St Clements Church[2]. A copy of his will is lodged at the National Archives

His memorial stone reads thus:-

Sacred to the memory of E. MILWARD, Esq , who during a period of 40 years, zealously and impartially discharged the various duties of a magistrate for the county of Sussex and the Town and Port of Hastings. He was distinguished in private life by the liberal exercise of the most generous and disinterested acts of Friendship and Benevolence, and died deeply regretted on the 10th of May, 1833, in the 68th year of his age.[3]
