THE ANNALS OF YORKSHIRE,
Fullerton, Colonel, of Thribergh Park, near Rotherbam, was a magistrate
for the West-riding. He became possessed of Thribergh, (which was
purchased by John Savile, Esq., of Methley, of Sir William Reesby, about
the year 1705,) by bequest of his relation Judith, (who died in 1809),
the widow of Savile Finch, Esq. M.P. for Malton, who was the only son of
thehonourable John Finch, (second son of Heneage Earl of Ailesford), by
Elizabeth Savile, heiress of Thribergh. Colonel Fllerton erected a new
mansion at Thribergh, in the style called gothic; and he placed in the
church there a beautiful monument by the younger Bacon, representing his
wife Louisa (who died in 1818, in her 37th year), and her eight
children, in alto-relieve. He died at his seat, Thribergh Park, January
19th, 1847, in his 69th year. Colonel Fullerton is succeeded at

About this time John Fullerton and the Rev. Milner appointed a new Schoolmaster who was the Rotherham born James Ross, later to become known as the Bard of Thrybergh. With the addition of girls to the school a Miss Hannah Piper was employed as a teacher, so the School now had two Teachers. James Ross was to leave a legacy for the people of Thrybergh, that legacy was his Poetry, and also records of the parish beautifully written in calligraphy. James in his poetry describes his perception of Thrybergh and its people of the time. James died in 1836, and one hundred years later thanks to Mr. J. H. Townend the village cobbler and a J. P. a centenary celebration was held for the Bard of Thrybergh.
Around 1818 Sir Walter Scott was a guest at Thrybergh Hall and in his memoirs wrote "Thrybergh, a very handsome seat, surrounded by fine woods"

From the Eagle Magazine article" A Day's Ramble in South Yorkshire"
"This church [ Rotherham ]would repay a lengthened visit, but we cannot stay now; we leave the smoky little town behind us, and wander for three miles through a country of quiet rural beauty, till we climb the hill on which stands, with its hall and spire-church, the little village of Thrybergh ; a place with that air of substantial comfort about it so characteristic of the rural villages of Yorkshire, and the .neatness and cleanliness which are the surest signs of a well-fed and contented peasantry. Thrybergh is an interesting village; its fine hall is modern, but it has two old crosses, and around one of them is entwined the evergreen wreath"

Thrybergh House, the seat of John Fullerton, Esq., is an imposing mansion, surrounded by an extensive and very pleasing park. Few families in England can boast of such a long unbroken descent as the Fullertons
On Whinney hill was a plantation, and at the top of Whinney Hill behind where Fosters used to be was a Sand stone Quarry. Close to where St. Gerard's Church is, there was Milroy lane which went down towards a little clump of tree's called Bankwood, which was pretty close to the River Don.
The area we knew as Fatty Boyins was known as The Fish Ponds which were on the edge of Thrybergh Deer Park.
The plantation that runs from Reresby Ave to March flatt's Road was called The Marsh Flatt Plantation. Lilleys Farm was there on what is now known as Vale Road, and behind the farm was an old well named Trough Well which provided water to the farm. Trough Dr gained its name from the old term trough which were depressions in the ground, and Thrybergh had a large number of these Troughs.
Opposite where the Fullerton Pub stands on what used to be a green, there was a pond named brick kiln pond. Barraclough's Farm off Hollings Lane was known as the Blacking Mill.
The lower part of Silverwood was actually called Gulling Wood, and the little wood where the cenotaph used to be was called Round Wood. There was a Quarry there Known as Round Wood Quarry. Where the Bath house and car park stood at Silverwood Pit was called Hollings Wood. The area from Park Lane to where Vale Road meets Hollings Lane was known as Thrybergh Common. About midway on the common close to where the railway line ran was a building named Warren House.
In 1834 Sarah Awty married Henry Samual Richardson.
In 1858 the Rotherham Advertiser was founded by a Rotherham newsagent Ann Hinchliffe and also Henry Hepworth. This newspaper was to become the major source of information for events in the Rotherham area. It is now I regard a great source of historical information in recent times. It proved to be a great source upon the life of James Ross the Thrybergh Bard.
If you wanted a pair of shoes in this period you saw Joseph Butler the Shoe Maker who lived at the Thrybergh Post Office. If you wanted grocery's well Martha Tayler ran the Village Grocery Shop. The role of School Teacher was in the hands of John Mason of York. Sometime after 1872 Sampson Sanderock of North Putherwin, Devon, arrived in Thrybergh to become the Village Police Constable. Down at the Blacking Mill Benjamin Turner was the Miller. While at Thrybergh Hall in 1881 George Turton of Thrybergh, a Farm Labourer was listed on the census as In Charge Of Hall Not Let In The Hall Indoor .
Mary Wadsworth was a partner in the Quarry situated near the railway bridge on Park Lane. and the Farmers in the area were Edmund Gillott, Thomas Hawson, Hannah Sargan, William Walker, William Williams, and George Whitaker the largest with 2,300 acre's.
Mrs Cook Yarbrough the owner or resident of Thrybergh Manor Hall was not present on census day 1881and left in charge was Margret Ritt of Keglete, Dumfries, Scotland who was the Housekeeper.
The Thrybergh Joiner Builder was Henry Peace born in Clifton Yorkshire. Edward Howley was the man to see if your horse needed new shoe's listed as the Blacksmith. There were quite a few old folks in Thrybergh on census day 1881 and the oldest person in Thrybergh on the day was Mary Speight a widower living on her own 88 years old born in Yorkshire 1793. [ I wonder if this is a ancestor of a certain George Speight who is better known as Paul Shane ] Well o k I suppose now I have told you that, you will want to know who was the youngest person on census day. There are a few contenders but the winner is Isabel Stokil Boyd 2 months old on the day.

In 1881 there were two empty dwellings in
Thrybergh and a cottage being constructed and were listed as follows
