A presentation from Michelle Bryant

John, Just a quick note to say how much I enjoyed your Thrybergh website. I am related to the Drabbles in Thrybergh through my great-great-great grandfather Robert Drabble, who was the brother of Mollie Uttley's great-grandfather Charles. I thought you may be interested in some more details about the history of the Drabbles before they came to Thrybergh for your site.  
Jeremy and Michelle Bryant




Charles Drabble who was born  about 1839 was the son of Joseph Drabble and his wife Rebecca (nee Newsome), who were married in Braithwell in 1825. Charles' siblings were Elizabeth born 1828, Robert born 1830 , George born 1833, who were  all born in Maltby. The youngest sister was Emma who was born in 1836 at Attercliffe, Sheffield.

The family were found next on the1841 census of  Maltby, Rotherham HO107/1332/3
Joseph Drabwell Male 38 Yorkshire agricultural labourer
Rebecca Drabwell Female 37 Yorkshire
George Drabwell Male 8 Yorkshire
Emma Drabwell Female 5 Yorkshire
Charles Drabwell Male 2 Yorkshire

Ten years later the family were still in Maltby on the 1851 census of Maltby, Rotherham HO107/2345
Joseph Drabble Head M Male 49 Dronfield, Derby, England Agricultural labourer

By 1861 the family were found on the census of Braithwell, Micklebring RG9/3513, which is a village adjacent to Maltby.

Rebecca Drabble wife M Female 56 Pigburn, York, England
Charles Rawson servant U Male 11 Lincolnshire servant in husbandry
Elizabeth Spencer (no relation listed) U Female 9 months Maltby, York, England [ see below ]

Charles worked on the property of George Bell, who lived next to his parents.  I think the Elizabeth Spencer living with Joseph and Rebecca was their granddaughter, the daughter of Charles and his soon to be wife, Mary Spencer
Elizabeth was listed in later censuses as Elizabeth Drabble born about 1861 in Maltby

Charles Drabble married Mary Spencer in 1861 during the April -May-June quarter, at Doncaster Yorkshire.

At the age of 21 on the 26th of September 1915 Sidney was killed in action and is remembered on Panel 20 to 22 at the Loos Memorial. The Loos Memorial forms the side and back of Dud Corner Cemetery, and commemorates over 20,000 officers and men who have no known grave, who fell in the area from the River Lys to the old southern boundary of the First Army, east and west of Grenay.
