ALBERT EDWARD BIRD of Sheffield and later Australia
My great grandfather was Albert Edward Bird, son of William Bird and Sarah Mosley. He was born in Sheffield Yorkshire on 15 August 1846. He was brought to Australia in 1869 to run professionally, being promoted as "Long Distance Champion of England". He had an outsatnding athletics career in England and later Australia and New Zealand.
I would like to make contact with anyone with Bird family connection in Sheffield, or Wolverhampton where Alberts ancestors came from, or in Australia.
