G'Day from Aus.
Anyone got some info about a long lost relo of mine from UK?
Herbert Woolfenden lived in and owned the Fox Hotel in Loughborough with his wife Maria & 3 children back in 1911(according to Census).
Prior to this he was adopted out and then travelled around the counties as a boarder.
I'd like to know what became of them all after the 1911 records of them.
[my 2xGG/F bought him the pub before migrating to Aus in 1910.]
Cheers - Murray

Check on here in 'search all trees' to find out whether anyone else is researching them.

Only someone connected would have info...........anyone else would have to research them

Have found a 1921 newspaper article about the theft of a cashbox from the Fox Hotel, property of Herbert Woolfenden.

Sent by pm to Murray.
