Alfred Dewey
1866-1934

Alfred Dewey was the fourth of the nine children of Joseph Dewey and his wife Elizabeth (née Gray) of Witchford, Cambridgeshire, England.

Alfred worked in agriculture - starting as a 'farmer's boy' in 1881, and becomming a 'Horse Keeper' by the time of the 1901 and 1911 censuses.

Alfred married Lucy Bowles of March, Cambridgeshire, and together they had six children, one of whom remains a mystery.

By 1901, Alfred and his family had moved to Chesterton, Cambridge, where they remain until at least 1911. However, they move out of Cambridge, and set up home in the village of Wentworth, near to Alfred's birthplace, by the 1930s.

Alfred died in 1934, and his widow outlived him by about 17 years.
