I am the Great Grandson of Charlie Allum who was Middleweight and Welterweight champion of England.He was born in 1876 in Notting Hill,London.His parents were Rose Ellen Allum and John Allum.Sadly he died aged just 41 in 1918 during the first world war.He married Millicent Shepherd and they had 4 sons..Charles,Albert,Arthur(my Grandfather)and John.They had 1 daughter Millicent.After Charlie,s death his wife Millie died 2 years later in 1920.My Grandad used to say to my nan that she died of a broken heart.The children were left orphaned so grew up apart.In the last 5 years though we the children and grandchildren of Charlie and Millie after starting to find each other.If you can help with any information regarding our Allum family or would like to share the information I have I would love to hear from you.
