I am currently doing research on my family history.
One of my ancestors was called Alfred Appleby, (he could also be known as Alfie), who it turns out was the Mayor of Morpeth.
Also, after reading several articles about Appleby’s Bookshop, I am wondering if he could be the same person who ran the store.
He married Dorothy Osborne and was born in 1914.
If anyone has any information please contact me on the email address below.
