The Other Lines Brothers

Most of my family history posts are based on items of information I have inherited, which is not found elsewhere, but sometimes it is handy to have a place to describe significant people who do not have a post of their own. My Grandfather, George Edward Lines had three brothers, who also went on to make a name for themselves, and this is about them (and their sisters), all children of Joseph Lines and Jane Fitzhenry.

Note that this is very much a draft at present

The other brothers

The other brothers went on to form Lines Brothers, which used the trademark Triang Toys (three Lines make a triangle).

William Joseph Lines (1879-1963)

Walter Lines (1882-1972)

Arthur Edwin Lines (1892-1962)

The sisters

For lack of a better place, I will cover the basics of my Grandfather’s sisters here too.
