I am trying to contact Valerie Allass.
I don't even know if she is still alive. I would be very grateful for any information anyone can give me. My name may probably mean something to her.

My father's family were pit sinkers and lived in the pit sinkers' huts at Moorends around 1910. In fact my great grandma and grandma lived next to each other. Does anyone know of any photos of the huts or exactly were they used to be? Any information about these workers and their living conditions would be very helpful indeed.

I now live in Bulgaria and have a question regarding No 59 South End, Thorne. I would like to know if this has always been a private property or if it was, in the early part of the 20th century, a nursing home or similar. My biological father was born at that address in November 1918. His mother (my grandmother) was from a reasonably poor background and it seems unlikely, from the photo I've seen of the house in South End, that this would have been her family home. I can find no further information of my grandmother after November 1918. I would be most grateful for any information your society members may have.

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
