About Wedgwood: The Wedgwood pottery company was founded in Burslem, England in 1752 by Josiah Wedgwood (1730 - 1795). Josiah Wedgwood was Charles Darwin's grandfather! Courtesy of The Potteries, Erasmus Darwin and Josiah Wedgwood first met because of their common interest in science - they were both members of the Lunar Society. They and their families became life long friends. There was a close association that grew up between the Wedgwood and Darwin families, Josiah's eldest daughter would later marry Erasmus' son. One of the children of that marriage, Charles Darwin, would also marry a Wedgwood — Emma, Josiah's granddaughter. Essentially, this double-barreled inheritance of Josiah's money permitted Charles Darwin the life of leisure that allowed him the time to formulate his famous Darwins Theory of Evolution!! Also, just like there's no crying in baseball, there's no "e" in Wedgwood!
