Alfred Wedgwood
« on: Thursday 08 March 18 11:52 GMT (UK) »
Hi

I am researching the contents of the diary of an East Cleveland YKS Ironstone Miner William Rowbottom which he kept between 1873 and 1925. Many of the entries are vague but I have managed to confirm most and add additional information.

Please could anyone help me fill out details of the following entry as I do not have access to Australian records.

2nd November 1923 Alf Wedgwood sale. He went to Australia.

Following is the biographical details I have so far

WEDGWOOD Alfred br 1876 Skelton & Harriet (COOKE) br 1857 Timberland LIN, Fruiters etc ,58-60 High St Lingdale 1911 and Kellys 1921

Many Thanks

John
