The Feud between Sir Henry Edwards & J. E. Wainhouse



Sir Henry Edwards and J. E. Wainhouse were neighbours and owned much land and property in the King Cross and Pye Nest areas of Halifax.

Wainhouse – who was described as intellectual and literary – was Chairman of the Skircoat Board of Surveyors with responsibility for the highways in the district.

Starting around 1874, there were several examples of rivalry and disagreement between the two men, a situation which the Halifax Guardian described as an uncivil war

The two men appear to have become reconciled before their deaths
