Family Bible of Edward Thomas Clegg

Information from a Clegg family bible owned by Sandra Kaser, whose line goes via Edith A. Clegg (Scutt). The information seems to have been added over the years, as it is in different hands and different inks.  Sometimes it's hard to read, so I've had to guess on a few names (indicated with ?).

Transcribed by Owen Kaser, November 1999.
