Wright’s presentation watch, Miss Ellen Ball 1953

Ellen Ball, known as Nell or Nellie, was born in Quorn in 1888. She worked at Wright’s factory in Quorn all her working life. She was engaged to Louis Brewin, also from Quorn, who sadly died during WW1.

Nellie never married and worked for over 55 years for M Wright and Sons Ltd in Quorn. After working at the firm for 50 years in 1953, she was presented with the gold watch shown below.

These photographs were supplied by her great great nephew Dean Gale.

A further presentation to Nellie for working 55 years at Wrights, can be seen at Artefact 742
