I'm re-posting my interests.
My ggggrandfather James ATKINSON was the publican at the Three Tuns
Patrington Holderness ERY in 1832 (Pigotts Directory) which appears to
have changed its name to the Three Crowns and then again to the Holderness
Inn by 1892 when the publican was Edwin ATKINSON (Bulmers Directory).
I would like to know if the inn remained in the family throughout the
period 1832 to 1892 and possibly before and after those dates.
I would also like any leads I can get on James ATKINSON.
ATKINSON is quite a common name in the area as it is elsewhere and I need
to verify which James I am dealing with.
Any help gratefully received.

Whilst I was at the Family History fair in York a letter arrived from the Central Chancery of the Orders of Knighthood at St James's Palace, in response to my enquiry about my grandfathers MBE. I was extremely pleased to recieve the letter which includes an extract from the London Gazette, and mention of the Investiture.
If anyone is interested the letter can be viewed from the home page on my website.
Thanks to Lorraine in Ottawa for providing details of the address to write to.

The Church has been demolished so is no longer there.
Not a lot so far but there was a Mission to Seamen opened in 1908 at 11-12
Posterngate, HULL. This is now a pub but has still retained the original
chapel with stained glass windows and pulpit.
St. Barnabas' Church was built in 1874 and was THE Church for the fishing
community of Hessle Road.
Will do some digging around and if I find anything I will be in touch again.
Hello to all,
I am hoping that someone can supply me with details of the above.
David FRITH m Jane SWINE March 19 1827 - Sculcoates, Yorkshire but they were
both from GRIMSBY. They obviously returned to GRIMSBY after the marriage
because they had children born there. David FRITH died in Grimsby in 1847 and
Jane was back in HULL by 1851.In the 1851 Census Name Index her age is given
as 42 and her place of birth as GRIMSBY.
I would be most grateful for any help or information.
I have found the following, all surname FRITH:
HO107/2362 folio 299;
John Clarkson (48), Hull
William (52), Hull
John (30), Kexby Lincs
Martha (26), Gainsborough Lincs
David (9), Grimsby Lincs
Jane (42), Grimsby Lincs
John (17), Grimsby Lincs
Maria (13), Grimsby Lincs
Mary (16), Grimsby Lincs
> I would be most grateful for a look up for the name FRITH.
> Thank you.
Can anyone tell me where the parish records are for the 1860s for
Sculcoates. I have a family member married in Sculcoates but on the
marriage lines it only gives his wife's address and I need to find his
Does anybody currently have access to OPR for Thornton, or possibly 1841
Census? If so would SKS mind looking up for me for a John Marshall born abt
1833 in Thornton, and having a father William Marshall. I don't know the
mother's name, but wish to find out her name as well as where the parents
were born for further research. The family probably moved around a bit -
John certainly did, making it difficult for research.
Thanks for any help.

Am I missing something or is there no index to the 1891 census of Yorkshire,
especially the East Riding? My local archive offices don't have it and I can
find no reference to it on Genuki.
If it does exist and if someone has easy access to it I'd be extremely
grateful if you let me know the piece and folio numbers for any Peas(e)goods
in York. Or anywhere else in Yorkshire for that matter! I'm doing a one name
study (registered with the GOONS) and there are quite a few Peas(e)goods in
south and east Yorkshire.
I'd be happy to look up records from the Bristol area in exchange.

I don't know if people are aware of copyleft (as opposed to copyright) but
this is a really interesting concept for those of us who are transcribing,
publishing books or designing websites.
With Copyleft the essential requirements are that those parts of any
document taken from Copylefted works will be (a)
acknowledged and (b) also Copylefted (and not Copyrighted). Those who wish
to make commercial use of Copylefted information are free to do so but in
the knowledge that the Copylefted parts of their work may be freely copied
and used under Copyleft provisos. If they wish they can Copyright other
parts of their work.
For those who are interested there is a recent article about Copyleft in
New Scientist which is available at
(The article is itself covered by Copyleft).

If anyone is going to Beverley Archives in the near future, please would you check something for me? I have a reference from the IGI of a marriage in Bubwith, but I can't get to look at the parish records thenselves.
William HILL to Nanny COGRAVE, 25 Nov 1822. Bubwith
I would love to know the full wording of entry.
Am trying to locate the marriage of my g-grandfather William Wright and
g-grandmother Betsy Smith of Welwick, Yorkshire. He was a tailor. Their
first child was born in 1858. They show up on the 1861 census with son
Herbert 2, and daughter Sarah Ann 1 mo. They had eight children altogether,
although 3 died in infancy. He was born abt 1828 and died in 1899. She was
born abt 1834 and died in 1872. Any information on this family would be
greatly appreciated. I have not been able to come up with a marriage record
as yet. There are too many Wright's and Smith's to make guesses.
