Re: Bickertons Manchester England

My family is originally from Manchester ....

My Grandfather, Joseph Bickerton came to Toronto, ON, CA after serving in world war one, around 1920. Shortly there after he married Jessie Greenwood, daughter of John Greenwood, of Greenwood & Sons (referred to as an iron works).

At that time, they founded a company called Bickerton Multigraphing (later named Bickerton Litho).

Joseph passed away in 1952 before my birth, and had I believe one sister (Alice), who also moved to Canada at some point prior to 1952 and eventually settled in Northern Ontario near Kirkfield Ontario.

If you have any information, I'd be very interested in learning more.

Thanks
