Wondering if anyone can help me with a question about 1851 census. My Great-Great-Great-Grandmother was a widow lived at 25 Hatfield Road - Thorne, Yorkshire, England - census states she was "proprietor of Hawks or Hanks" and wondered what that was or meant??? The 10 year old Granddaughter living with her at that time - Mary Ann Lane - was my Great-Grandmother. Just trying to find more information about this family line. Any help would be appreciated. Sincerely, Bette Russnogle

Excellent site, very interesting. Six years ago I moved into a house on Southfield Road that was built by Ernest Maleham and the adjoining land was used as a nursery I believe. I wonder if anyone has any memories of this business or better still any pictures?
Many thanks.

Fascinating collection of historic information. Does anyone know when the old vicarage on Stonegate ceased to be the vicarage? Was it replaced at that time by the current vicarage in Brooke Street? Was this latter an existing house, i.e. not built specifically as a vicarage or was a previous house replaced?

Error: One is definitely the River Don as it is clearly tidal and the tide is out! The other with the grand sailing barges could be the Dutch River as well. I think the house on the left behind the barge is the lock keepers house that belonged to John Rawson, but I am not sure.
This photo is the Stainforth a Keadby canal - East Bank and on the right the New Inn pub - the building is Lock House, the lock keepers cottage is further on just past the Basin.

My family and I are looking for information on the cemetery chapel on Southfield Road. As far as I am aware my great Grandad was given the job to build it JW Thorley and brothers we think was the name and they were stone masons. I cannot find any history of it on the internet unfortunately and I just wondered if anybody had any photos of it being built or know the Thorley family who lived in Thorne or know any history of the building.

Many thanks

I have a book for sale that would possibly interest local historians... Hatfield Chase By John Tomlinson... books in nice condition belonged to my Grandad. I am unsure of its value so open to offers.
