About Alfred Lennon

Alfred "Alf" Lennon was the Liverpool born father of British musician John Lennon. He spent many years in an orphanage with his sister, Edith after his father died. Alf was known as being very witty and musical throughout his life — he sang and played the banjo but was not known for being very dependable. Although always known as Alf by his family, he later released a record as Freddie Lennon, and was quoted in newspapers under that name.

Alf and Julia Stanley married in 1938. John Lennon was their only son, but Alf was often away at sea during World War II, and consequently did not see much of Lennon during his infancy. During this period, Julia became pregnant with another man's child. Alf offered to look after Julia, John and the expected baby, but Julia rejected the idea. Alf had very little contact with John Lennon until Beatlemania, when they met again, but later had only intermittent contact with each other. Alf died in Brighton, where he had gone to live after marrying 19-year-old Pauline Jones.
