Blacksmith's - a Memory of Brooke.

In 1860 Frederick Middleton, an ancester of mine, paid to become an apprentice blacksmith to a George Dunt in Brooke. I have his Indenture in my possesion with the details of the agreement. Is there any information available in Brooke about the old Blacksmiths? I would very much like to hear if there is. I also have a painting, which I was told is of the old Blacksmiths and also a photo.

I am a direct decendent of Frederick Middleton and am searching for more information about my family. I would be very interested in sharing knowledge. I too have a painting of the old blacksmiths shop.
