KNOTTINGLEY AND FERRYBRIDGE
In this section of the Knottingley and Ferrybridge Online website we feature some of the people from the town who went on to
gain prominence in later life. More often than not, several of the town's most famous sons go overlooked and very little is heard of their exploits
and so we hope that by publishing these stories, even if some of the information is a little vague, that we can address that.
From American gunfighters to Pioneers of New Zealand and Sea Captains to Shipping Companies as well as many highly influential local businessmen, the
town of Knottingley has left a legacy of great interest for all to share.
