Hodgson Harold Telfer was born in Bellingham, Northumberland, and at age 16 joined the family butchering business in Hexham. His father James Telfer was born in 1842 and baptised in Birdhope Craig Presbyterian church. James became a butcher in Bellingham and then Hexham.
Harold retired after 42 years in business - see the newspaper cutting about his life, and announcing this event. Unfortunately it's not dated. He certainly was a pillar of the community and the butchering trade in Hexham.
The most well known butcher in Bellingham was also a Telfer - Stanley Telfer, and he plied his trade before the second world war (with all its meat rationing) and retired in the 1950s. Maybe he was a relation? Does anyone know?
