a friend of mine has asked me to research imformation on Carl Christopher Krall (1844 - 1924) silversmith.
I wondered if anyone in the Krall family forum had already uncovered details of his early life.
Carl was born in Germany but moved to England some time before 1881 when he was listed in the Birish Census as a plate worker. He went on to become a world renowned silversmith (a partner in Barkentin & Krall) but details of his early life are obscure.
I would be grateful if anyone can match the records of an ancestor they have researched to this Carl C Krall. In return I'll happily pass on any information my friend has found about his life and work in England.
My friend is looking for confirmation of Carl's birth details (listed in the British census as 1884 in Heidelberg) and also any further information such as:
his exact birthplace and address at birth (if different) his parent's names his parent's occupations (especially if silversmithing or related trade) his religion the exact date of his emigration to England and any details i.e. did the whole family emigrate together
