Lemmy Brazil’s No.1

Lemmy Brazil was a (female) member of a large family of travellers. (“Lemmy” is the shortened form of “Lementina” - “Brazil” is pronounced “Brazzle”). She played melodeon and mouth-organ, but all of the family were musical and were well-known for their singing.

Lemmy was born in England, near Southampton, but soon afterwards the family moved to Ireland.

They spent 27 years travelling the country in two horse-drawn wagons before returning to England, where Lemmy ran a second-hand shop in Westgate Street, Gloucester.
