Brothwood in Ireland

Susan Hughes from Ireland mailed us with information regarding her Grandfather James Francis Brothwood

James was borne in Middlesbrough in 1901 and served in the Army (Cavalry) during 1914-1918 war. He was wounded and sent to Ireland to recuperate. This is how (insofar as Susan knows) he met and married his wife Catherine Moore who was born in Hollywood, Co Wicklow .

James and Catherine had six children.
