Sidonia and i believe 2 other siblings were born at Broseley Shropshire,the others at various parts of Dorset. The Legg family ( some times spelt Legge ) were pipe makers in the Broseley area,there is a former school called Legges Hill School,and an area called Leggs Hill,also across the river a few miles away in madeley telford shropshire there is a road called Legges Way. I would love to find out any other information on the family and would like to know what they did in Dorset and other areas,id assume one branch of the Legg family moved to Shropshire as it was known for its river trade and endless industry Ironbridge which is only a few miles away being the heart of the industrial revolution,any help would be much appreciated thank you.
