Channings of Handsworth in staffordshire
Further to my earlier posting, I have found more information. Archie Channing was born in 1887 in Handsworth in Staffordshire, his father William Channing was originally from Birmingham and was a builder/merchant. Archie Channing may have had a brother called William who would have been born in 1885. If anyone could shed more light on the family, I would greatly appreciate it.
