04. THE MOORES OF BELBROUGHTON
The Moores of Belbroughton (1984)
I wrote this article when I was 19 years old and was a keen family historian. It was published by Belbroughton History Society in their booklet 'A Belbroughton Miscelleny' edited by Mary Hinton and Agnes Spier in 1985.
The article describes how my maternal Moore ancestors, who were scythemakers from Belbroughton in Worcestershire, moved to the Sheffield area in the nineteeth century where they continued to work in the scythe trade.
