My Fathers Father served in WW1
as a Sniper was recommended for the Victoria Cross but due to unfortunate
circumstances was not awarded it.
He spent the years between the wars
as a greengrocer, his name was Lewis Wright, but went by the name of Dan.
He was born in Fulham London in
1889. His eldest son, also Lewis, started tracing the Family Roots, but alas
unknown to me, I was at the time away in the Army, following his death I tried
to carry on, but due to some confusion, I was searching for a McRae connection,
but found nothing.
So out of sheer desperation I sent a
copy of my Uncle wearing a Tartan to a certain person and EUREKA, I am now on
the right path, "MacIntyre".
I am now disabled through Army
service, and so have a fair amount of leisure time to trace my Family History. I
am told that 5 or 6 gens ago a Son and heir was disowned within the Family which
added to the Highland clearances caused a further splitting of the Family, which
I'm told lost us our family fortune, but I'm not sure of this.
