I have traced my Paternal great great grandfather John Glew to this area. He was born in Wroot in 1816 and his occupation is listed as boot and shoe maker. I have found reference to other Glews in census records and I guess Thorne was where the records were kept. Is there a website for Thorne parish records around the turn of the 18th Century?
Many thanks PeterABCDE

My steamroller, Aveling and Porter No 2031, Reg ME 3918 of 1884, attended the 1978 Thorne Show whilst in the ownership of Jack Lyon of Hatfield Woodhouse. Whilst I appreciate this is a bit of a long shot I was wondering whether anybody had any photographs of the engine at the show in their photo collections?

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?
