Catherine Wombwell and her son Fred Wombwell

Not much here. I'm afraid. Catherine was a daughter of Charles Wombwell and Sarah Nichols and was born in 1856.

It is not clear whether she married, but she certainly had a son, Fred, who was known as 'Lion Tamer' Wombwell.

If Catherine was married I assume Fred took her maiden name as a stage name. And there you have it.
