|Synopsis: This book traces
the family origins of Josiah Nixon from the Staffordshire Potteries
to the mining village of Hemsworth, Yorkshire. It relates the lives
and challenges of seven generations of the Nixon line before
focussing on the World War One experiences of Josiah and his
co-brother-in-law, Percy Wootton. Supported by their wives, Gertrude
and Amy (both née Simmons), they served on the Western Front in the
Royal Field Artillery. This genealogical book shows that the
Industrial Revolution produced some human challenges that arguably
