It would appear that Alfred may well belong to the Yorkshire branch of the Wedgwoods. There was an excellent website but I have not been able to find it. I did find an associate site Exciting Wedgwoods, but could not make much of it to my surprise.

The Wedgwood family all go back to a Gilbert Wedgwood 1588 to 1678, from Biddulph. He had a large family, the descendants of which have spread all over the world. He married Margaret Burslem 1594 to 1695 in 1612. Not suprisingly he was a potter. He later lived in Burslem. Gilbert is my husbands 8th times great grandfather.

The family starts with Randle Wedgwood c1231.

Sadly I do not have Alfred b 1876 in my database. It is not complete for more recent people.

My original information comes from "Wedgwood Pedigrees" by JC and JGE Wedgwood published in 1925.

There has been a lot of work done on this Wedgwood line since by John Pound Wedgwood and Philip Richards whose sites were the ones I was looking for. Philip Richards is the one you need for Wedgwoods of that era.

Thought you might like to know about all this. Good luck with your research and welcome to Wedgwood researchers.
