This orphan has been claimed by: Brett Clark

Christopher Busch was my 2x great grandfather .

He went to live in the Derwent Valley at Fentonbury with his father, who worked as a farm labourer.

He married Louisa Kemp, and his trade was bootmaker.

I assume that he learnt his trade in orphan school, if anyone knows that would be great
