A large scale commercial beekeeper
I am unable to find much information about Madoc, probably because he doesn't appear to have done much writing. Manley refers to him as "my friend" in his book "Honey Farming", so I assume they were on good terms.
There is reference to Madoc having made a contribution in a 1917 issue of the British Bee Journal. In the same publication in 1920 he was advertising honey for sale in bulk and in 1922 was advertising 4 frame "Italian nuclei" at £2 carriage paid. This suggests he was using Italian bees himself.
Although there seems to be little information on Madoc, he was clearly a force in beekeeping for some time and alongside others who are better known. For that reason I have given him a page. I would like to make it more complete, so if you have any information please Email me.
