Think I lucked out on this one Annie.

Mailed the bloke with the site with the Clegg Hall article.  He replied saying that that article was put there 7 or 8 years ago and he has lost all references not only to Brian Clegg but to the whole site which he is no longer maintaining. 

What a bummer.

Hi Girls

I did think to the side a bit Annie (can't spell laterally) and lo and behold I just logged on and some kind person has just sent me Brian Clegg's address.

LL, did contact the Ob last year when this issue first arose but never even got a reply.  I will try again though, thanks for the reminder.

I must keep telling myself though that the object is to find a descendant of FRED LAW, and Clegg's are only a means to an end.

Cheers

Hi Annie

Found his MIC - I searched for Fred Law only, no number no corps, and got 14 hits and he's about the fifth one down on the list.  However,  I can't justify spending the money and the info will be of limited value in this project.  Perhaps I'll hint to Johan in Belgium that it may be of value to him.

Got a nice reply from Brian Clegg but no help after all.

Started to look for marriages of Fred's brothers with limited success.  Both LancashireBMD and FreeBMD are limited in that they are not a complete list.
