Charles Dean Victorian Athlete

Postby Louby1403 » Fri Jul 07, 2017 6:34 pm

My Gt Gt grandfather Charles William Dean was born in 1873 in Cheddar, Somerset. I recently found his obituary in a local paper, which described him as a well known, long distance athlete. Does anybody know where I would need to look to find any further information about his athletics career?

Unless you have already done so, try the newspapers of the time again. The census returns might also give a clue.

If you know where he went to high school/university, they may have more information.
