Biography

John ASTON was born about 1803. He married Lucy Louisa Anne MEREDITH, daughter of John MEREDITH and Lucy LAWRENCE, on 8 June 1824.1 John ASTON died on 12 September 1882 in Westfield, Augustus-road, Edgbaston.2 He was buried on 16 September 1882 in Rowington.3
John Aston carried on the family Button Manufacturing business, after his father’s death, first in partnership with his brothers William and Thomas until 1823, then with Thomas until 1833, and thereafter on his own account. A Birmingham directory of 1839 lists two businesses at 41 St. Paul’s Square: John Aston, florentine and silk button manufacture and John Aston & Co, gilt and plated button makers. In 1841 he patented and manufactured the invention of Humphrey Jeffries of a three-fold linen button, which became hugely successful. By 1871 he was employing 340 women, 11 men and 5 clerks, according to the census of that year. A directory of 1878 describes the company as “manufacturers of plain & fancy silk buttons, fancy linen buttons, florentine buttons, the original patent linen buttons & the patent triplicate linen buttons”, located at the Eagle Button Works, Summer Hill. He retired as a partner of John Aston & Co in December 1879, and the business was carried forward by his sons Thomas Lawrence Aston and George Lyttleton Aston, together with William White.
His private address from 1861 until his death was in Augustus Road, Edgbaston. His step mother Jane Meredith was enumerated as a visitor in the household in the 1861 census.
