So your ancestor was a jockey… — 5 Comments

  1. This is one of those wonderful research stories about occupations and where to find the records – thanks Bob!

  2. What a terrific story, Bob. I’m constantly amazed at the wide variety of experiences that our ancestors had; there are a wealth of resources out there if we only ask the right questions and find out where to look. Pauline

  3. Thanks for a really interesting story, Bob. My grandfather was ‘into’ racing about that time and had a horse named Lobba Minnie. It did win a couple of races but was no Phar Lap. I wonder if he ever met your Great Uncle Henry?
