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'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
