Re: FAMILY HISTORY, Harry Wedgbury and cousin Thomas Alfred
My mother is Juliet and she was born in 1932.Her father was Thomas Alfred Wedgbury born in 1908.His father was Alfred George Wedgbury (commonly known as Fred). I have traced Alfred George's marriage to Josie Juliet Cole to 1906 in the Bromsgrove area.His Father's name is given as William Wedgbury deceased and he is recorded as being 25.My Grandfather told me years ago that his grandmother was Maria Long of Alcester Warwickshire.I have found a family, living in Redditch in the 1881 census with father William and mother Mary.There is no Alfred but there is a Frederick G. aged 4 months. I believe that this is probably Alfred incorrectly recorded as Frederick. There is a boarder called Selena Long and I am pretty sure that this is the right family.There is also a Harry Wedgebury ( the spelling is slightly out but again this could have been an error on the part of the person collecting the details),aged 7, in this family. My mother says that her father had a cousin called Harry around his own age.He married a girl from a circus family.Mum thinks she could have been called Maud but she is not sure of that.This lady used to visit Mum's grandmother, Josie Juliet, regularly and mum can picture her face even now.It looks like we could be related.If mum remembers anymore details of 'Maud' if that is her correct name I will post again.
