Biography and History Webley J. Edwards (1816-1870) and his wife Deborah Ann (Mercereau) Edwards (1823-1888) were the first owners and occupants of the house now known as the Edwards-Barton House at Historic Richmond Town. (Before having that house built in 1869, Edwards owned and lived in a building on the adjoining property which is now known as the Guyon Store or Tavern.) Edwards was a tailor who became a prosperous real estate investor and also served as County Treasurer of Richmond County and Justice of the Peace. In the 1860 census he was listed as a "Gentleman." He was also a vestryman at St. Andrew's Church. Webley and Deborah had two daughters, Ella and Lucretia. They jointly inherited the Edwards-Barton House property in 1888, after the death of their mother.

In 1878, Ella Edwards married Willis Barton, a stock broker who worked in Manhattan. The couple initially lived in Stapleton. They moved into the Edwards-Barton House in 1892, and lived there with their five children: Samuel Edwards; Willis E.; Mary E.; Francis Keith; and Leroy. The family of Francis Keith Barton's wife, Hilda Konow, is also represented in the collection.

Francis Keith and his wife Hilda were the parents of Robert Edwards Barton. Robert was married to Gladys Barton. Their daughter, Deborah (Barton) Rosman, donated this collection to the Staten Island Historical Society in 2013.

Additional related materials may be found throughout the collections of the Staten Island Historical Society, especially donations from members of the Edwards and Barton families.
