Alfred “Alf” Lennon (14 December 1912 – 1 April 1976) was the father of English 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. 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. Lennon was their only son together, but Alf was often away at sea during World War II, so consequently did not see much of Lennon during his infancy. Alf later found out that Julia was pregnant with another man’s child and offered to look after Julia, John and the expected baby, but Julia rejected the idea. Alf had very little contact with John until Beatlemania, when they met again, but later had intermittent contact with each other. Alf died in Brighton, where he had gone to live after marrying the 19-year-old Pauline Jones.

    Wow. Really I didn't know that Freddie Lennon was musician as well. But I'm bit confused to make an opinion on this guy. But well, who am I to judge.

    Haha, surprised I'm the first to shout. Am I the only Beatle fan to research things this deeply? Hardly. "That's My Life" is a fine song, really.
