Looking for information on the SPERRING or BROOKE side of my family. James William Sperring came from Moss Side Manchester and died abt 1904. According to a newspaper cutting he was buried in the Southern Cemetery and came from a strong non-conformist family that worshipped at the Rusholme Congregational Chapel in Rusholme road. Some or maybe all of the family moved to either Bristol or Bath, where we think his son, James William Sperring was born 1848. d.1939 married Eliza Brooke b.1855 d.1918. Eliza's siblings; Clare, John (possibly John Bartholomew after his father) and Charles Edward. The Brookes are more likely to have come from London. Any connections with either Sperring or Brooke family would be appreciated.
