I’ve had a very interesting enquiry from Emma Mills who’s working on her family history which involves a family that were resident in Walsall Wood and the Hussey Estate just before World War Two.
I thank Emma for a very interesting enquiry – she wrote:
I’m looking for some assistance in finding information of some of my ancestors.
The Beddows were originally from Walsall Wood and Hussey Road, Brownhills area which I know was where they were in 1939.
Lily Beddow I believe was married to William Barnard and their daughters were Hilda Beddow and Eliza Barnard.
Any help would be great! 🤔
I know we still have the surname Beddows locally and there are a fair few with that surname about – but the question is, are they related?
What do you know, and can you please help?
Please comment here, say hi on social media or mail me: BrownhillsBob at Googlemail dot com – thanks to Emma for a really interesting curiosity
