      Hello Dave,

      I have attached 5 files for your interest.  Let me know if you have any particular question that you'd like me to try to investigate?  John Wells seems to have been a bit of a character - he had a beer sales licence for his Martin Street premises and seems to have had trouble with the accuracy of his butchers scales, according to the magistrates!

  3. And so it goes on ........ again thanks (I now have bits of paper all over the place, great and I'm carrying on).
  4. I very much appreciate this Edmund yes thanks a lot, I'm only just starting with this. I have some information, yes he lived with us in Blackpool until his death. He and his brother were fish dealers in Sheffield. I'm now nearing 80 yrs so I thought I'd do a bit of investigating before "I pop my clogs" so to speak, again many thanks David W.
