Person  Male  Born 27/4/1852  Died 9/12/1925

Philanthropist. Born James William Condell Fegan in Southampton. He moved to London in 1865 and eventually joined a firm of colonial brokers. He soon became aware of the plight of many young boys living in poverty and destitution, and spent the rest of his life in teaching them and improving their living conditions. This led to his establishing a charitable society and children's home system which were well ahead of their time.
