A table knife and palette knife manufacturer, Joseph Dodworth (c.1790-1860) was listed in Upper Allen Street in the 1830s. By the following decade, he was living in Chester Lane, with a workshop in Devonshire Lane. In the early 1850s, his address was Eldon Street. The Census (1851) enumerated him as a 63 year-old table knife cutler, living with his 23 year-old daughter Hellen. He was apparently the father (by his wife Ellen) of palette knife manufacturer James Dodworth; and Alfred Dodworth (George T. Dodworth). Joseph Dodworth, ‘manufacturer’, Bolsover Street, died (aged 70) on 17 March 1860. His gravestone can be seen in the unconsecrated section of the General Cemetery.
