What a thoroughly wonderful web site! Can anyone tell me if the Mrs. Thornton that Roy Nixon mentions is Gertrude Thornton, who was married to Ernest and the mother of Zilla, Jesse, Margaret, and Kathleen? My late Uncle married Margaret, and my late Aunt married Jesse. Again, very well done web site ... I'm going to look through it again to be sure that I have explored it all.
Hi John. You may think that this is a strange email, but I will try to
explain. I was born in Lancashire in 1929, and raised in Blackburn. I was called
up for 2 years National service in REME from 1950 to 52. I spent the last year
of that at Bovington with a lad who lived at 6 Braithwell Road, Ravenfield. His
name was Dave, but I cannot remember his surname. He would also be 75 , if he's
still alive. I was looking through some old photographs, and came across Daves
address. It is possible that his home in 1952 does not now exist, as I sent a
letter to that address and it was returned as undeliverable.
Thanking you, Ken Brooks.
Gordon Hett. I have just come across your website and much enjoyed working through it. It has resonances with some of my experiences and memories, which I may go into on another visit. On this occasion, could I just concentrate on one aspect, St. James Church. I am the present organist and have been involved with the organ, choir and other aspects of the music for the past forty years.

Came across the Ravenfield site by lucky chance. Excellent Yorkshire by birth we now live in Devon but are very interested in Family History. My wife's ancestors, MALEHAM, lived in Ravenfield, see our website www.audandal.org.ukand any information about the family would be welcome.

I really enjoyed reading the site. I was a pupil at the school from about 1946 to 1954, Miss Ward was the Headmistress then. Other members of staff that I remember were Mrs. Hobson, Mrs Littlewood & Mrs Rybeck. The school meals were diabolical, they were brought in to the kitchen in containers, probably then warmed up & dished out. My mother was Muriel Richardson, who ran a small hairdressing salon at what used to be 2, Moorlands, but was changed to 42, Moor Lane South. It would be good to hear what some of my old friends are doing these days, especially, Alan Williams, John Hunt, David Lee, Keith Richardson, Noreen Cutts, Evelyn Wadsworth & Pamela Oldfield.

From a Book I have on the SMITH family which includes numerous Pedigrees, I have on page 23 extracted details of a William Smith who had a son Edward who married Eliza. dau of Sir Robert Bosville de Agnes Jud, Edward and Eliza went on to have 4 children, Edward, Thomas, Humphrey and Maria. It would appear this information is extracted from the Heralds Visitation of Kent in 1619. Would you have anything further on Sir Robert Bosville and Agnes Jud, many thanks David Judd

Hi John, My name is Matthew Bingham and I live in
Vancouver, Canada. I jsu wanted to say you have a great site and it
brought back great memories for me. I was raised for most of my childhood in
Ravenfield. I lived with my dad (David Bingham) and
my mom (Georgina Bingham) and my sister Sarah and my brother
Jonathan. We lived at Number 3 Radford close from me being about 2
years old right up to me being about 13. I went to Ravenfield junior school where
I remember Mr. Jennings as the headmaster. I have such fond memories
of going to the post office to pick up my copy of the Beano every
week and hanging out with my friend's Roderick Walsh and Steve Hides
(I believe the Walsh family still lives in Ravenfield) Anyway I am 32 now and live in Canada
with a family of my own, the site made me more than a

Hi John, this will
be a very short note to find out whether I dreamed reading what I take
to be an ex resident of Ravenfield, as she mentioned the corner shop
Bashfords which must have been there since before time, and an old
Ravenfield church choir boy had to read it. I would just like to
mention we were one of the first residents in Sunnyside and from
information I have had, we had one of the family in Silverwood
Colliery when it first opened and we had one member of the family
there when it closed. We did for a short period of time live in the
stone cottages on the way to Bramley and I have a nephew still living
in the deputies stone row in Ravenfield, and I did have a school
friend live opposite Bashfords but unfortunately he died a few years
ago. I will close for now but look forward to hearing from you with
an explanation as to how you have an Australian email address.
