I came to this site to look for pictures and /or the location of Pashley Bridge. I have ancestors named Pashley who lived in the area. The 1851 and 61 census says they were making boots and shoes. They had an apprentice living with them. The address given in the census is Pashley Bridge.
My interest was in the mother of the head of the family.
I have enjoyed your site and wondered if the photo of the shoemakers house was where my ancestors lived.

I have enjoyed reading the contents of your site.

I left my home in Scarborough on 3 August 1958 to commence my career as Police Cadet at Thorne Police Station. I was allocated lodgings with Mr and Mrs WALTER Edge at 10 Wilkinson Avenue, Moorends. I remember Mrs Creaser well. She lived about four doors away. That was the mother of Valerie Creaser. Other people in the street were Mr and Mrs Harry Dunn and Patsy, Mr and Mrs (forgotten )and their daughters Marjorie and Linda. Mr and Mrs Bell.

I have written my memories of being a Cadet at Thorne if you are interested.

Admin reply: Thanks Richard, a page has been made with the information you provided.

Great to see this site. I was a pupil at West Road Infants and then at Thorne Grammar. I subsequently went to University in London and have enjoyed a career as a university teacher. Now retired. My mother was a also a teacher at West Road. I have some pics of staff at west road from 1950's that I can upload to this site if anyone is interested.
I have just sent a load of very old pictures of Thorne and family pictures of the Rawson family ( old Mr Rawson was the chemist in King Street) to Richard Walker, Funeral Director. Someone out there may want to look through them!

According to one cemsus John Bramham was servant in Southend House which I tink was lock
