In Reply to: Harry Fothergill, born c1880 Durham by William Fothergill, Australia of 446

To William Fothergill,

My grandfather was William (bill) Fothergill(born around ~1910 - 1925).
I an keen to find out more of his origins and thought that perhaps you had come across him during your own search.

I know very little about his background other that that he came to Australia from England in the 1940's as an engineer to work in a paper mill in Burnie, Tasmania. While there he met and married my grandmother Betty Dowling. It is rumoured that he already had a wife and family in england when he left and had always been expected to return. Its all pretty sketchy as such.
Any info would be appreciated. Good luck with your own search.

regards, Rachel
