Ya that will be the caravan brawl...

I have it in my records, every thing would point to it being my 4th great uncle the area is given as meadow rd if I remember right, which again pops up matching this smiths fields name.

Yes that's the one... an alcohol fuelled brawl no doubt!...  we're also related to Charles Bacon who I believe also lived in Watson's Yard.

in the 1890s-1940s there seems to be a large amount of travellers in and around Nottingham... Not sure what its like now, my grand dad moved down south and I have never been up there.

The Smith and Wilsher family had extremely strong connections from what my research shows.
