I just recently joined the Yorksgen group and also the East Yorkshire group and after only a few weeks I have had such a good time reading all the messages, and learning all kinds of interesting and useful things. I just want to say a heartfelt thank you to these people who have taken time from their busy lives and emailed me with census information, help with my surnames and just good stuff for a newbie like myself to know. I hope I haven't overlooked anyone, my sincere apologies and thanks to you if I have. You all make this new found hobby if mine so much more personal and interesting. It's not turning out to be the solitary hobby I had imagined at all!
Thanks so much to: Sarah B from Yorkshire, Sarah R from Northumberland, Mary and Margaret both from Ontario Canada, Lesley from Anglesey UK, Trish Michael from Australia, Ike Dawson from Durham UK.
Have a wonderful Yorkshire Day All!

I have in a death certificate from Jan 1886 Registered in the sub-district of Myton in Hull. The place of death is Coal Heaver's (or Leaver's) Lobby, Railway Back USD. I have been to the Local Studies Library in Hull, although helpful, nobody had heard of it. They did suggest I try a large scale map of Hull and go through it to see if it was there. We also tried the Trade Directory under both 'Coal' and 'Railway' but still no luck.
I have also tried Hull Archives and Local History Resources Centre on Park Street, Hull all have drawn blanks. Although somebody did suggest that it was just one of the many coal yards behind a railway.
I have asked at work (I work on Hessle Road) and some of the 'older' employees who had been born in Hull had not heard of it.
Has anybody on the list? Or can anybody suggest where I could look to find it?
Thank you in advance

The old saying about hindsight being 20/20 sure applies to me, I wish when I was younger and living in Hull that I had taken more of an interest in my roots. Now I'm older and living in hot & humid Canada hoping someone among this wonderful group can possibly help me with these family members: I'm very interested to know where they may have lived, worked, gone to school, and just anything at all! If there is anyone needing something from my part of the world (Winnipeg, Manitoba,Canada) just give me a shout!

Can anyone help me, I'm looking for the names and situations of Oil Mills
in Hull in the 1880s.
My great grandfather and his brother-in-law and brother worked in one for
many years, the family lived in the Sharp St area of Hull.
I'd be interested in any information on a family in Hull called Bromby. They may have had a Printing business in the mid to late 1800's. I know of 2 sisters, Charlotte Bromby and Hannah Hall nee Bromby who were living at 34 Park St, Hull in 1881 who may have been connected to this family. Others were William, Sarah, Jane and Mary Ann who married a Richard Tarbottam. I'm particularly interested in families they may have married into and also where the business, if it existed, was situated and the type of business, i.e. did they print newspapers?
Thanks to all those who answered my request for the whereabouts of the
Shipton registers by meantioning Pocklington, however:
Pocklington register office closed in 1937 and the registers went to
Howdenshire or Buckrose.
Buckrose closed in 1974 and registers went to Ryedale,
Scarborough or Bridlington.
Ryedale closed and registers went to North
Yorkshire. Scarborough closed and
records went to North Yorkshire.
Bridlington still open.
Howdenshire closed in 1974 and registers moved to Selby, Goole,
Pocklington or York
Selby closed and registers moved to North
Goole still open.
Pocklington closed in 1937?!!!! (back where I
York still open.
This means that the records could be in Bridlington, Goole, York or North
Yorkshire. Does anyone have any idea in which of these the Shipton records
are most likely to be?
The North Yorks (Harrogate) Office does not meantion the Shipton area on the
Genuki page. Goole does not meantion the correct area (I'm looknig for 9d
not 9c). York meantions 9d and so does Bridlington.
I am a new subscriber to this list, and I am researching the names MARTIN
and TURNER in Seaton Ross, Shipton and Eastrington, and the names LANE ad
KNAGGS in Flamborough and Hull and JORDAN in Hull.
John LANE actually came from London, but married Eliza KNAGGS of Flamborough
in Bridlington Primitive Methodist Chapel in 1868. They subsequently lived
in Tower Street, Flamborough, where John was a fisherman. In 1891 they
lived in Bright Street, Southcoates, Hull and John was the Master light
keeper on the Hessle lightship. They are both buried in Flamborough
John and Eliza's son Stephenson Knaggs LANE married Rose Jane JORDAN (born
Hull) in Hull register office in 1894
Thomas MARTIN (born Eastrington) married Jane TURNER (born Shipton) in
Seaton Ross in 1874
Would love to connect with anyone researching these names, and would also be
very grateful for any mention of them.

Can SKS direct me as to where the registration records for BMD are held for Shipton, Nr Pocklington, Yorkshire.
I have looked at the genuki site but this has left be even more confused as I was before.
I am wanting to send for the birth certificate for Cyril Thomas born March quarter 1890 ref. York 9d 28. I thought he was born in Shipton but I know that 9d covers this area. Does anyone know if Shipton would appear as York or should it be Pocklington?
All help gratefully received,
I have started work on a site that will store strays in the UK. Over 2100 names in first three weeks.

We want people born in the UK (any county) living in another county in the UK.

It is well reported in today's Yorkshire Post that this years YORKSHIRE DAY
celebrations are to be held in York on Tuesday by both the Yorkshire
Society, a service in the Minster, and the Yorkshire Ridings Society -
reading the Proclamation from Micklegate Bar.
This years events are appearing to receive more publicity than ever so can
we all support and wear our White Roses on Yorkshire Day.
Of course we can only really celebrate if Yorkshire beat Lancashire at
Cricket - the Wars of the Roses at Headingley - started yesterday and
depending on the weather look like being a close result as so much depends
on this match in this years championship race.
Hello to the owner of the Bridlington History book
Was that an offer to do look ups, if so, I'd love to know if there is
anything about the Brid. Union Workhouse? My x 3 great grandfather, WILLIAM
WILEY, died there in 1855.
Thanks very much
I have a few HARPER's mentioned in by Book about Pickering. Are you
interested in that area?
