      Bernard's father, Ernest, gave up his awl making business in Bloxwich because the advent of the motorcar reduced the demand for work-horses and their harness. He then acquire the village general store in Essington, where Bernard and his sisters, Dorothy and Kath, went to school. On leaving school Bernard learned his trade as a fitter at The Grove Colliery. In 1916 he enlisted in the Royal Army Service Corp and saw active service at Ypres, on the Somme, where he survived a gas attack, and other battles.

      Kathleen's grandfather was a blacksmith, as was her father Edward Handley. She was the second born of seven children, Florence, Kathleen, Fred, Jack, Millie, Jennie and Bill. She won a scholarship to Queen Mary's Grammar School in Walsall and after matriculation obtained a teaching post in Heath Hayes Infant School. In those days married teachers were not permitted, so she had to give up her career to marry Bernard in 1923.

      Their first house was one of a pair purchased by Bernard when they married. In 1930 they moved to a company house and returned to their original home on Bernard's retirement.

In Reply to: Hadley - Walsall by Louise of 1685

I have a Leah Hadley marrying Emmanuel Fullwood in Bilston, 1829 from the family bible but like you have had little or no success finding Hadley's in the area. Fullwoods come from Bilston, Sedgeley and Wolverhampton. I will keep my eyes open for your family when doing research.

Louise writes July 17, 2001:
Hi Cliff
Good to hear from you
These people are frankly a bit of a mystery, my Great Grandmother was a catholic (Theresa Hadley) so that might be why we are having such problems finding anything out, I dont know much about non-conformism really, perhaps it is about time I found out!

Let me know if you find anything, and I will do likewise
