I was very tempted to rename this page Memory Lane,
it is becoming my favourite page on this site. I would like to express a
sincere thanks to the people below who have shared their memories, and left
the very kind comments you see below. So if you have two minutes to spare,
make an old Thryberghite happy and share some memories of Thrybergh
Hello My husband's family Ernest Tradewell came from Thrybergh. Some of them were born in Dalton Magna. Interesting and informative site. Tradewell is such an unusual name. Most of them were carpenters. My husband's dad will be 90 this August his family came to Canada about 1906. Thomas Tradewell and Elizabeth (Castle)Tradewell were born in this area.
Great site, well presented, brilliantly interesting, even to a Barnsley lad. Anybody recall the second message "etched" on the Royal plaque in the pit bottom?
Thank you so much for this web site. I am a Thrybergh girl through and through!! I have spent 10 years away from home and now I am coming back with my new husband. We are due to move into our new home in Old Ravenfield soon. Your website is so very interesting, I am going to get my dad (Brian Pannett) to come and look at it. Many thanks once again. I know you are thousands of miles away, but your work is still much appreciated.
Hi there, John, my name is Ken Boden, you will remember by brother Jeff more than me!! I have family stopping with me at the moment and they put me on to your site, it brings back fond memorys, I see you live in Sydney, have you been back to Thrybergh, do you still keep in contact with any your old mates, did you here that Trevor Wagstaff passed away a few month ago. well keep up the good work John great site, regards Ken Boden.
Best site on Dalton, where I was born, My memories are imprinted in my brain now my Children can print their heritage from the net, thank you for taking the trouble to collate all the material. My Father worked at Aldwarke and Silverwood between 1928 until his death in 1971 His name was Harry Meggitt. his last job was on the pit top in the control room and our next door neighbour (Saville St) Stan Machin worked with him. I fondly remember my Father and his "pals",from Dalton congregating at the bottom of Osberton St, they used to call it ' meeting at the houses of Parliament" here they put the world to rights and had the added advantage of seeing every motor vehicle that passed through Dalton ,forerunners of Last of the Summer Wine I think!"Tha,s dun a reet gud job Lad"
I live in Thrybergh and I am the grandson of Wright Knight a worker of Silverwood Pit until 1976 when he was made unfit to work in the pit if any one knows him or can give me some info please E-Mail it to me.
Hi John All my family worked at Silverwood My dad Ike Hall brothers John and Pete and me Allen. I lived in Thrybergh and Dalton till I married and moved to Redcar North Yorks Do you remember Jack and Nelly Richardson, son Taggi gringo marsa and monk all nick names. real names John Dave Howard and Keith. I have lots of memories of this wonderful place I still call home.
I'VE LIVED IN THRYBERGH ALL MY LIFE, I HAVE MOVED AWAY TO FOLLOW A CAREER IN THE ARMY BUT I HAVE COME AND SETTLED BACK THERE ONCE AGAIN. THRYBERGH IS A DECENT PLACE BUT I NOW SEE THAT IT IS BECOMING SPOILED BY THE YOUTHS WHO VANDALISE AND DESTROY PARTS OF IT. IF YOU ARE FROM THRYBERGH AND YOU KNOW ME THEN EMAIL ME AND LETS CHAT.
Hi! I saw your page by chance, I lived in Reresby rd my dad Arthur worked at Silverwood up to late 1960's, mum's name was Lilly (nee Evans) she mentioned the Doxey's, I think it was Nelly?. You may know my brother Gerald?. Well done, it's stirred up a few memories. I live in Sussex now.
I was looking for the name Burden....last night, in the 1901 census, think I made a link with my family. My GG'aunt Norah Elizabeth Robinson, b 1876, Swinton Yorks, could be the Norah Burden b 1876, Swinton, Yorks...I could not find her husband though. So, today I am searching in google for the Burden family. Do you have someone married to my Norah? she was actually called Bessie by the family. Love to hear from you, and, your site is brilliant, and yes, I voted for you.
It was fascinating reading your web site - only
sorry I couldn't find any of my family members. I know my gggrandmother Emma
Barker (b 1829) came from Nether Haugh, Rotherham and she married George
Portman from Dudley and they married in Wentworth Rotherham. I have lived
most of my life here in Perth, W.A. even though I was born in Sheffield my
parents emigrated in 1951 when I was only 4 years old. One day I will go and
do some serious family history over in the UK. Maybe we are related through
the Norburn family - I have only Martha Norburn ggggrandmother(b 1807 in
Wentworth) married to Edward Portman. Thanks for sharing your family. If you
have any research tips I would be happy to hear them.
I am looking for some old photo's or info on anyone who worked at Bullcliffe /Denby grange with my grandad Clarence Boyles he also played in grange moor brass band thanks
Thanks so much for such a
great site. Its like having a trip back home whenever you feel like it . I
wish some of the 72 year old Dalton and Thrybergh lads and lasses were more
computer literate so we could tell the young uns what a great place it was
to live in the 30s 40s and 50s. Kind regards to You and Yours.
I currently live in the State of Iowa, USA. I am searching for my ancestors and found your site. My dad Mr. Bragger worked at the coal mine in Thrybergh and grew up in Thrybergh prior to WWII. Your site is a fantastic means by which to get an idea of the life and times of Thrybergh. I will visit often. Christine Nash
I would like to compliment you on your web site about Thrybergh. I am trying to research my dad's family who lived in Thrybergh at the beginning of 1900 but I am unable to find anyone called Bragger which is my dad's surname. Do you have any suggestions ? I now, live in Italy and it is a little complicated to carry out this search. Thank you for any help you OR ANYONE may be able to offer. Best regards Diane Bragger
John. I love the site. I had a very happy
surprise when looking at the photo's of St Gerard's. My uncle is in one of
the photo's and I could pick him out straight away. I printed it to show my
dad who could not believe that I had found it on the internet. I have lived
in Thrybergh for over 20 years and I had not heard some of the things I had
found out on your site.
Hello john, Great website, found it by looking for details on Silverwood colliery. I live in Ravenfield and have done all my life. My mum is from Thrybergh. Her dad my Granddad is Stan Naylor who ran the fruit and veg. shop. I have also played for Silverwood football club.
Just to let you know I found your site interesting. I was born in my grandparents (Jack and Dreada Duggan) house on Gullingwood Drive in 1969, and lived in the backers, then we moved to Park Lane until I married and moved to Whiston at the age of 21. I went to St Gerards and then to St Bernards.
I would be most grateful for any pointers my enquires are about my great grandfather Thomas Molyneux who i believe was registered as living at 13 Norwood St Dalton approx 1920s or any other Molyneuxs that any one would know of thanks very much
was most interested to read your web site on Thrybergh. My great grandfather
was Fred Foster, who founded Foster's of Thrybergh, in about 1919. I work as
an English lecturer in Penzance, and have little contact with the area these
days, but am researching the family tree at the moment.
Hello John, I was just browsing Yorkshire web sites, and coming from the Rotherham area I have enjoyed your site, Best wishes Pauline ( Marples
Hi John & Matthew, how are you hope you are both well, the web site is looking really good I have local people coming into my shop commenting on your site saying how interesting it is, keep it up! we are all fine talk to you soon. best regards Sergio Rachel & Familia
Country: u.k. Hi John, a great site you have, this is my first visit.
Great site for people researching the area.
My dad has just had his 80th birth day and some one brought him some pages
that had be down loaded from your web site. They were all of Silverwood pit
and he had worked there from 1950 till 1985 when he retired. Lots of the
stores and name he saw he could remember and even some that went there too.
He tells my they all knew when Ash had been working in that face with all
the drawing he'd leave.
an excellent site, your efforts are a credit to your roots, best wishes to you and yours and all those visiting the site.
