William Foster, Felling Brick Manufacturer

William Foster hit the big time when the Co-op created the township of Pelaw. Before the Co-op, the name Pelaw only existed as a railway siding. They needed a lot of bricks and William Foster made them. He built himself a house Croxdale House..and the rest of Croxdale Tce, named for the place he originally hailed from
He was a Councillor and a J.P.



At this time he was Chairman of Felling Urban District Council
