George William Wildblood, born in Shropshire in 1911, competed at Hanley Speedway in the late 1930s,

when "Joe" posed for this snapshot in his Skirrow,

and represented England at Stadion Den Bosch in the Netherlands in the 1960s.

The photo was donated by his son, Doug, now an on-the-road speedster in New Zealand.

The badly scratched portrait was beautifully retouched by Delaware County, NY, genealogist, Tamara Sanford.

Back from battles against his parents-in-law's homeland, John Jackson Wildblood served as a New Jersey State Prison guard.  An unidentified Trenton newspaper got his name wrong. It is not the first time "Wildblood" was corrupted, and sometimes in was done with benefice aforethought. The name Jackson is related to this family and to its relatives in East Liverpool, Ohio.

The founders of the second Wildblood family in the New Jersey capital. Hannah née Walklett and Frederick Robert Wildblood ran a store on North Clinton Avenue across from the later Trenton Potteries. All that kilnsmen and saggermakers (Cheeseheads) needed, from sponges to chewing tobacco. The stoop is still there, the potteries gone, but the company still operates. An old catalog is seen in Ad(vert)s.
