Is there any information/Photo's about Majestic Motors in Thorne?
I have a photo(abt 1950)of my mother in law in front of a Majestic motors coach with her cousin Frank Richardson, he ran the business and drove the coaches late 1930's until his death in 1968.
Both he and his wife Lucy are buried in Thorne.
Maybe there are relatives still in Thorne? Frank and Lucy had two sons Basil & Bernard.

Hi
Most of my predecessors are from Thorne. I am now the last of my generation. I have old books and pictures of Thorne. Would it be o.k. to bring them to a meeting. Maybe you will be able to store them I have not got space and they are meaningless to my descendants.
I don’t want to destroy them.
Many thanks
Martin

I've been working on my family tree recently and I was curious as to whether or not there are very many people in the area with the last name of Thorn / Thorne, and if so, whether or not they themselves have looked into their family history.

I have only been able to go back as far as William Thorne Sr (1616-1664). He was born in Dorset which is quite a distance from Thorne, but I'm assuming that the family name was probably taken from the place name at some point.

He was the first of my family to come to America in 1638.

If anyone has any further information to share they are welcome to email me.
Thank you

I was born in 1931 in Broadway. Pupil at Thorne Grammar School. I've been racking my brain to remember something - the name of a plastic factory (combs, hairbrushes etc.) near Thorne 1950ish! Noone seems to remember it. What was it called?

the photo of the school hall in J Platt's discussion of the history of Travis School does not appear to be correct. The windows and placement of doors are totally different. Is it possible this was mislabelled and is another local school? ie Fieldside?

I represent the Pride of Bristol Trust who own and run the ex Fleet Tender HMS Messina, built at Richard Dunstons yard Thorne in 1982. I have a photo of her in a dry dock and cannot place where it is. The vessel is still running as the MV Pride of Bristol (see facebook pride of bristol trust). How do I send a copy of the photo to you please?.

Regards

Martin Seymour
