Has anyone any information on the Essex brick making industry, especially that which concerns members of the Gale Family in the West Ham, Woodford and Wansted areas?

I have some information on the Gale family, mostly Woodford as my GG grandfather was George Gale born 1864 who owned that part of the business eventually. I have some of my info on my ancestry tree, but as I did most of the research before I joined, I have more in my own files. Send me a message via the ancestry messaging system.

My Grandfather was named William Gale. He used to have a brick field in the Rochford,Essex area around 1900.
I have heard that he was one of four sons of a sucessful father who ran several buisnesses in my Granfathers youth.
My grandfather was diagnosed with a fatal illness and was given 3 yrs to live while in his early twenties. He sold his interests to his brothers and went to the USA to travel. After three years he was still living but penniless. He returned to Britain and joined the army as an officer in the M.P. After some years in Mesopotamia he rurned to Britain and got married.
I am interested to find out anything relating to him and his family.
