I received this information from a friendly ebayer hi, I thought you may be interested to know that the books were probably owned by George Wragge of Oakamoor Lodge, Staffordshire. George was a solicitor who married Emma Ingleby and had a son named George Paulson who eventually joined his Uncle and cousin Clement Mansfield Ingleby in Birmingham at the firm Ingelby, Wragge and Ingleby that eventually became Wragge and Sons. George Wragge went to Oakamoor to become manager of the Cheadle Copper and Brass Wire Company, This was a partnership with Thomas Patten and the Ingleby's and part of the Cheadle Brass business Empire. He became a shareholder and died in 1849 and buried at Oakamoor Church. George was the grandfather of Clement Lindley Wragge the famous meteorologist who was brought up by Emma Wragge in Oakamoor from 1853.
