Rhead family Wigan, Lancs UK
Posted by: Carol (née Brown) (ID *****7785) Date: August 24, 2002 at 10:57:36

In 1913 two sisters, Ethel, wife of Thomas Rhead, and Connie, wife of Charles Abram, lived in Beech Hill Lane, Wigan. After the 1930s the Rheads moved to Mort St, Wigan. My grandfather Alfred Frank Brown, born 1889 in West Bromwich, Staffs, came to live with these sisters (his cousins), after his mother, Susanna Goodyear of Hartlebury, Worcs, died and his father, Alfred John Brown remarried. (Alfred John married Susanna aka Susan in 1886 in Hartlebury.) Can anyone from the Wigan Rhead family tell me anything about my grandfather's early life in West Bromwich or Wigan? Secondly is any member of the Wigan Rhead family connected to Goodyears of Hartlebury, Worcs or Browns of West Bromwich, Staffs? I'd be pleased if anyone can help and have a tree to share.
