Classification: Query
Surnames: Gale
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.
