Thanks very much for that Colin !.

As it was relatively recent, I did try searching Trade Directories etc for evidence of the Grocery business, but no luck. What I did find is that it seems most of Ruardean Hill especially the Morse/Drybrook side were owned by various Brains; altho as you say they were not necessarily that closely related to each other by then. And there was me ignorantly thinking wrt my own trees that "Ruden-ill" was largely Roberts territory !
I now need to find my copy of Maurice Bent's book "Highest Point of Dean", to see if that includes anything helpful to this thread.
