John Keeling

Post by Keston »

The name John Keeling is new to me .
Would anyone have heard of John Keeling fishing tackle expert from Market hall Birmingham ?

Any information or anecdotes ?

I ask because I have a hook packet which suggests 130 years of tackle trading so he and or the shop must have been well known ?

Kind regards
John

Well played Nobby , that must be the fella .
Looks like he was a manufacturer / trader and expert.

Perhaps later generations take us to thos hook packet .

It does say somewhere there that his son took over upon his death and that then someone else took over and kept the same trading name.


That was all I could find on a three generation firm sadly. But there's some far better researchers than me on here.........
