I'm currently tracing my family history and believe that my Great, great, Great Grandfather was Charles Smith, married to Anne. I have located information on the 1841 census which states that Charles was a Farrier. The family lived in Bisley. His wife, Anne and 3 of their children are recorded as working at the Woollen factory. My Great, Great Grandfather; William is recorded (age 15) as being a Barge man.
If anyone thinks they might be able to give me any information, especially regarding the woollen mills or Farrier, I would be delighted. I have to say the village of Bisley looks beautiful and I will be visiting as soon as I can!
