Seems as though at one time Issac was an errand man

I wonder if he was related to John Ridgeon, Head, 62, Farm bailiff, Lawtons Farm Beyton

In 1871, Isaac is a Confectioner - royal one no doubt  ;)

1861 listed along with Victoria and Albert in the census  :o

I don't think he is related to your man, John Ridgeon.

I remember your earlier thread well, partly because I was helping you uncover the stuff about Mary Russell.

She does sound fascinating - where did you get info that she was into black market goods  :o  Have you seen the family on the 1939 register?

I seem to have made a bit of a breakthrough

I donít think Mary was into the black market but I am pretty certain that her daughters husband was.
He bought a nearby property with the proceeds from the widowed Maryís house in December 1932 and used the new property to operate a cafe from. Mary worked in the cafe until her death in 1950. Shortly after she died her daughter's husband retired.

I got the info of BMG from Maryís late grandson.
Though he never told me verbally, he wrote enough down to set me on the trail of mystery that I am trying to uncover.

What bought me to this post was that I am reasonably sure that her Russel husband was connected to. The Windsor Brewer that became Noaks brewery.
