      Timothy, I have been trying to find him as well. I have found a variety of different newspaper articles that list a family connection to George and Frederick Bridgetower. However, I have also found a Frederick Bridgetower in Newry County Down, Northern Ireland who was also a musician (One article mentions Northern Ireland). I’m trying to piece together the evidence, I need to search out more official sources and not the gossip of the newspaper articles.
