I am seeking information about my Paternal Grandfather Mr James Wroe:
Born 20th February 1883 at Ardwick in Manchester, England. His father was Daniel Wroe a foundry labourer and his mother was Emma Wroe formerly Emma Waterhouse.
In the 1901 British census James was recorded as employed as a Pawn Brokers’s Assistant and resident in South Manchester with his brother John Wroe, his brother’s wife Annie Wroe and their daughter Hilda Wroe.
James was married to Mary Orrell on 30th September 1907 at the Registry Office, Chorlton, Manchester. At that time he was still shown as a Pawn Broker’s Assistant.
On 25th September 1908 they had a son John Wroe (my father, now deceased). They had two other children, a daughter probably Patricia Wroe and a son possibly James Wroe. I do not know the dates of birth.
At some time thereafter James left the family, probably to go to Australia, and my father had no further contact with him.
