Does anyone own Walter Adcock?
« on: Tuesday 12 December 17 22:39 GMT (UK) »
I've bought an old book which has a sticker inside the cover showing that it was a prize given to Walter Adcock in Barnsley in 1894.  He would have been a youngster.  It would be great to give the details to one of his descendants.
Godden in East Sussex, mainly Hastings area.
Richards in Lea, Gloucestershire, then London.
Williamson in Leith, Vickers in Nottingham.
Webb in Bildeston and Colchester.
Wesbroom in Kirby le Soken.
Ellington in Harwich.
Park, Palmer, Segar and Peartree in Kersey.

Is this Walter too old?
