Hi I am looking for any information relating to my Great Grandfather John Fallon. He was born in Walsall, Staffordshire, England on 31 May 1858. Father Patrick born +- 1828 in Ireland and mother Dorothy born Ireland 1833. From the 1871 UK census, he had siblings Ann M, Catherine, George, James, Margaret, Thomas and William.
Accordong to family stories he was convicted of horse theft and somehow made his way to South Africa where he changed his name to Freeman.
