Fullerton House School, Denaby, South Yorkshire
Situated in the village of Denaby near Doncaster, Fullerton House was originally a hospital. Today Fullerton House is a 52 week co-educational school for 36 children and young people from 8 to 19 years of age.
Fullerton House provides accommodation, education and therapeutic services for people with severe challenging behaviours resulting from autism or severe learning difficulties. The school provides a safe, comfortable home and stimulating school environment for our students - with the added advantage of being in the heart of the busy local community.

The actual departure of the Fullertons from Thrybergh is yet to be researched, it may be possible like many large estates in England that the upkeep of the Thrybergh estate became to expensive, and was sold. Large parts of the Property were leased and The Rotherham Golf club was established there in 1903.

Miss Leaks Caravan photo courtesy of Mollie Uttley The photo on the right is of  Miss Leak who was a descendant of the Fullertons, Miss Leak lived in a caravan at Thrybergh Park during  the Rev. Dixon era [ 1950's ], then she had a house built near the tennis courts. Eventually Miss Leak left Thrybergh and married in her later years and lived in Cambridge.

Lyn Crosby [ nee Page remembers ]
Miss Leek was as I understand the last of the Fullerton family At the age of eleven I was crowned May Queen at Thrybergh junior School by Miss Leek, as a gift she gave me a gold pendant that had been passed down through her family, I still treasure it today.







The Fullerton Name Worldwide

There are many buildings and Streets throughout the British Isles that bear the name Fullerton, and also throughout the World in general. It is thought that a Fullerton was on the Mayflower with the Pilgrams.

Fullerton City  
Located 22 miles southeast of metropolitan Los Angeles, in the center of North Orange County, Fullerton is a full-service city. Named after  George H. Fullerton, in 1887 president of the Pacific Land and Improvement Co., also a Santa Fe subsidiary
The Fullerton Hotel, Singapore The Fullerton Hotel (00 65 733 8388), 1 Fullerton Square, Singapore.
The Fullerton building was formerly the city’s GPO. Its imposing exterior of Doric columns has made it a key landmark since it was completed in 1928. Architects had to respect its original structure when converting it to a 400-room hotel — it opened on January 1 this year. Its lozenge-shaped eight-storey central atrium, with bars and restaurants, has become a meeting place for the city’s movers and shakers.

On the odd occasion children born in the 19th and early 20th centuries were given a second Christian name which may have been the maiden name of the Mother or surname of a family friend or Doctor and sometimes an institution. Around the turn of the 20th century a family named Mist moved from the South of England to Denaby South Yorkshire. They had a son born on the 6th of July 1906, at Denaby he was named Charles Fullerton Mist. He was named either after the name of a Dr. Fullerton who was practicing in the area, or he was named after The Fullerton Hospital at Denaby. The family emigrated to Canada in 1912 and Charles went on to become a director for the Boston Insurance Company in Canada, which was later bought by Continental.  Charles was very proud of the name Fullerton.
I would like to thank Judy Fleming the daughter of Charles for contributing the unusual naming of her Father to this site
