Birth Date: ?1860

Death Date: Blackwater fever

Profession: Went to Kenya with John Alfred Jordan to look for gold

Book Reference: Jordan

General Information:

Jordan - ... Met Jack Wrigglesworth in Port Elizabeth. He reminded me of the heroes in the old Boys' Own paper. He was handsome and clean and very English. He could be cold with a hard, aristocratic coldness, and then he would smile as he saw the ridiculous side of his own appearance. He was about my height, 6 ft. 2 ins., and he could box just as well as I could, or at any rate neither could knock the other down. ......... They looked for gold together in GEA near Shirati.
