I'm looking for info/photos of Church Lane Cottages in the mid 1800's. According to the 1851 Census my Great-Great-Grandfather, John Hampson, listed as a Grocer living there with his wife and Children

If you help please contact me so that I can complete the info on this ancestor in my family tree and move on to the next generation

Thank you

Lovely site. I'm researching my family tree. Richard hembrough lived at waterside and riverside in 1850 - 1870. He was also a grocer in Ellison street. Other relatives lived in St James place and Hatfield rd.

Hello,
I wonder if any Thorne residents remember Fred Roberts, my grandfather who was born in Scarborough in 1901. He joined the army when he was 18 and moved to Ireland but I know nothing about this life up to the age of 18. His second child, my aunt Marion was born in Thorne in 1927 so I assume there's some family or early life connection there? I think he might have been adopted or something. Can anyone help? It would be amazing if you could.

Thank you for looking!
Claire :o

Does anyone know anything about the annual parade that went to the Black Bull Inn at High Levels from Thorne? I have seen photos in the "Old postcards of Thorne" Book from around 1911-1915. A parade called a "commando" was held and there is mention of the Thorne Troopers and a Jazz Band. There was also a show held at the same time.

Anyone named Casson in 18th and 19th century Thorne was my father's family.
Curtis Casson was my fourth great grandfather.
He left England and came to
America in the 1830s. The other family members
remained in Thorne and surrounds. I visited Thorne in 1990s.
I was astonished recently when I used Google Earth and
discovered everything had changed; a BMW plant etc.
Casson Road is now deadend both ways. My grandfather
did return to Thorne in 1830s after he married and
had a boarding house on Bridge Street. He later
returned to the US; he owned a mill in Wisconsin.
My ancestors owned businesses on Silver Street,
Market Place and the mill on Casson Rd. My cousin
is thinking about visiting Thorne and I wondered if
the boarding house on Bridge Street or any of the
other places are still there. Martin Lambert sent
me the Casson Rhododendron Catalog and a copy of the
Thorne Book in the 1990s; they are in the cherished
family collection. Love the Thorne websites.
