View Full Version : Geary's from Broseley
18-01-2005, 10:57 AM
My family appear to have come from Broseley, moving to Oldham before 1841.
Anyone got any more information.
In Pigot's 1828/9 Directory -
JOHN GEARY, landlord of the DOG Inn, Broseley.
There is also a BENJAMIN BALL, Iron Founder, WILLEY WHARF, possibly in Broseley, but more likely on other side of the River SEVERN near Ironbridge.
Could not find any entries pertaining to Ruyton-of-the-XI-Towns or to RYTON near Shifnal, but I know from studying the Shifnal Parish registers that there were a good number of BALLs living there at least in the 18th century including my g-g-grandfather's g-grandmother.
Hope this is of help, FredP.
