Bernard - Flixborough - 525w - Franki Piling Co Original 600dpi - cropped - brightness+25

Bernard Hunsley (3rd left) at the test of the piling at the new chemical works at Flixborough (later, Nypro), in the late 1930s.  This is a long shot, but can anyone name any of the others in the photo?  The Franki Compressed piling Company also worked on the never-opened Winteringham Chemical works on Sluice Lane (behind the chicken farm) which was to produce an alcohol-based motor spirit which could replace petrol.

On this day in Winteringham ....

1864: The Harvest Festival took place (on this day - a Wednesday) when the usual rejoicing and rural sports took place.  There were "abundant" refreshments.  A band of music paraded the streets, and there was a lecture in the evening.

1880: National Schoolmaster David Soanes and his sister the Schoolmistress, were presented with a timepiece and a cut glass biscuit canister, watched by more than 300 people on the cricket field;

1883: WINTERINGHAM  SERVICE OF SONG. - On the evening of 21st ult. [August 21st] a service  of song on "The Pilgrim's Progress" was rendered in a very hearty manner by the Primitive Methodist choir from Frodingham. The proceeds, which were not very large, go to the benefit of the Temperance Society,

1891: A Barr of Winteringham advertised he was a married man, and was looking for a situation as a House Porter, Caretaker, or any place of trust.  He stated he was a life abstainer.

2005: Graham Boanas walks across the Humber;

2006: Former Winteringham Fields waiter Corporal Bryan Budd killed in Afghanistan.


I am interested in anything and everything to do with Mill/Mills in Winteringham and North Lincs. My name is Michael WINN, I am a direct relative of Mary Ann Judge (nee WINN)and her husband Charles Judge.
Mary was indeed born in Blyton, she was baptised on 13th Sept. 1811, and her father Robert Winn built the Mill at Blyton in 1825. She also had a brother Robert Lightfoot and a sister Elizabeth.
Her father Robert also had a brother William, Alkborough Mill, a brother Thomas at Glentham Mill, and a brother John at Tealby Water Mill.
Mary Ann Judge had 7 children, Martha, Robert, Charles, Joseph, William, Mary and Sarah. You will by now have guessed that I am tracing the "WINN" Family Tree.

On my Tree I also have a marriage in Winterton in 1799 between a Sarah Codd and William WINN and a marriage in 1824 between a Mary Naylor and William WINN.
Someone in your article was also interested in Grasby? Robert Winn's father, John Winn married a Mary Grasby in Caenby in 6th Nov.1760, Mary was baptised in Thimbleby in 1723.
Also in the article you stated that in 16th Nov. 1943 Herbert Clayton sold Mill House for 450 on16th Nov 1905, advert for the purchase of fixed machinery and Plant at Winteringham Roller flour Mill.  Any more details of the above would be welcome.
If you could send me a copy of your article and any drawings/sketches/photos etc. appertaining to the same and/or any thing on any other Lincs Mills would be greatly appreciated





It may be Hull City of Culture 2017, but the same year marks Winteringham’s own historic year - 700 years since the charter awarding a market each Wednesday and an annual fair.  There is now an accurate translation of the charter, and it is intended to have a calligrapher make a copy to be kept in the parish for posterity!  Knights and minstrels are already booked for the event!  Keep an eye on this website, or on the special Winteringham Festival website for further details (click here for the Festival website).

Any information you can give me about this would be extremely useful.

3rd August 1804
Letter HK White to Benjamin Maddock: My days flow on here in even tenor. They are, indeed, studious days, for my studies seem to multiply on my hands, and I am so much occupied with them, that I am becoming a mere bookworm, running over the rules of Greek versification in my walks , instead of expatiating on the beauties of the surrounding scenery. Winteringham is indeed now a beautiful place: the trees are in full verdure, the crops are browning the fields, and my former walks are become dry underfoot, which I have never known them to be before. The opening vista, from our church-yard, over the Humber, to the hills, and receding vales of Yorkshire assumes a thousand new aspects.  I sometimes watch it at evening, when the sun is just gilding the summits of the hills, and the lowlands are beginning to take a browner hue.  The showers partially falling in the distance, while all is serene above me; the swelling sail rapidly falling down the river; and not least of all, the villages, woods and villas on the opposite bank, sometimes render this scene quite enchanting to me; and it is no contemptible relaxation, after a man has been puzzling his brains over the intricacies of Greek choruses all the day, to come out and unbend his mind with careless thought and negligent fancies, while he refreshes his body with the fresh air of the country.

3rd August 1908
An advert appeared in the Hull Daily Mail offering rough or broken slag screenings for road, concrete, etc in large or small quantities.  It was placed by the Leeds Contract Company at Winteringham.  The point of interest being that the Leeds Contract Company was involved in building the railway to Winteringham.

5th August 1908
At Scunthorpe Magistrates Court, a Winterton man was alleged to have cruelly ill-treated a pony at Winteringham.  The case for the prosecution suggested that the pony had first been taken to the Bay Horse, then to a passageway at The Ferry Boat Inn, where it was alleged to have been struck several times by the defendant.  However, another witnessed claimed he saw the horse being chased by two other horses which bit and licked the pony, explaining the marks on the back.  The case was dismissed.

6th August 1919
Seven Youths were charged with a brawl at Winteringham at 10:30 pm on this day.  Two of them stated that they weren't near the singers, nor were they singing.  PC Hutchinson said that he had warned most of the defendants before, and on this occasion he heard them a quarter of a mile away, in Silver Street.  They were all fined between 2s 6d, and 7s 6d when they appeared at court a month later.

7th August 1885
The annual school treat was held in the Rectory grounds on Thursday last week.  The day was all that could be desired, and the children appeared to thoroughly enjoy themselves.  Many of the parishioners sat down to a comfortable tea in the Rectory coach-house.

8th August 1828
SERIOUS OUTRAGE.- The following has been transmitted  to us by a correspondent :- “A serious occurrence, to which I was an eye-witness, took place on Friday the 8th inst. at Wintringham.  Three men, a father and two-sons, named Pickersgill, who bear an indifferent character, entered the village about six o’clock in the evening, in a state of intoxication, and commenced quarrelling with the inhabitants. After the three had been fighting with some persons for a short time, the father, finding their antagonists getting the better of them, ran up to his house, a distance about 200 yards, swearing he would shoot two of the inhabitants, and the constables who had interfered for the preservation of the peace. He was seen to charge his gun, after which he returned down the street. One of the constables, and several inhabitants, endeavoured to wrest the weapon from him to prevent mischief. Finding himself overpowered, he cocked the piece and fired. There were at the time nearly 200 persons assembled. The shot struck the ground and rebounded, wounding a woman and her daughter who were standing at their own door, and a girl and boy, the latter of whom is considered to be in some danger, he having received three shots in his body.  The rage of the populace was powerfully excited at this desperate act; they seized the gun and dashed it to pieces, and could scarcely be restrained from executing summary vengeance upon its owner. He was however handcuffed and placed in a situation of security during the night, and on the following morning conveyed to Burton.”  Our correspondent adds that, after an investigation into the particulars of the case, the magistrate, Sir Robert Sheffield, committed the prisoner for a limited period to Kirton house of correction, in consequence of one of the inhabitants stating that he considered his life in danger from his violence. The two sons, who had also been in custody were released.  It is said that the parishioners of Winteringham are determined to bring the affair to trial at the sessions.

Augustus Wardle was drowned in the Humber.  His body was not washed up until 27th October that year, dressed like a sailor.  Unidentified at first, but later identified as Augustus Wardle.

14th August 1907
What the future of Winteringham on the Humber, will be it is perhaps at the present moment difficult to forecast, though now, thanks to the enterprise of the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company, which work a railway between Scunthorpe, near Frodingham, Lincolnshire, and the port, it now seems fraught with boundless possibilities.  If the port is not so well known as Goole or Hull it has just as many advantages in that it has fine deep water suitable for a quay and wharfage, and will form an excellent additional outlet to meet the ever growing requirements of the company.  From the merely local point of view Winteringham has also the advantage of being in close proximity to a district, Frodisham [sic .... should be "Frodingham"], rich in deposits of iron ore.  As already known, a scheme was formulated some time ago by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Company to lay a railway direct from Fockerby, over the Trent to Winteringham, but ultimately this scheme was abandoned owing to certain opposition.  In connection with this Sir George Armytage's statement at the half-yearly meeting of the company may be recalled.

Negotiations took place, with the happy result that we are able to obtain favourable facilities for dealing with our traffic without incurring the expense of making a new railway.

Though the secret has been studiously kept the favourable facilities undoubtedly refer to the working of this railway from Scunthorpe.  When it is well known that the "L and Y" is a gigantic steamship-railway carrying company, having twenty five vessels at its disposal sailing to many of the Continental ports, Winteringham as well as the other ports will no doubt be able to cope with the ever increasing traffic of the North of England.

15th August 1802

On Thursday the 16th inst., Mr John Sargeant, master of the keel Victoria, of Blacktoft, after taking in a cargo of cliff stone at Hessle, in proceeding to his destination, Yokefleet, in consequence of the ebbing of the tide brought up in the Brough roads on Thursday: whilst there he ate a very hearty dinner, but between five and six o'clock he was attacked with cholera, which in a short time became so severe that it was thought advisable to have him conveyed to his residence at Newport, where the best medical aid was procured (Mr. H. J. Raines of that place, was in immediate attendance), and the most prompt and anxious attention was paid to his case, and every means used for his restoration, but without the desired effect, as he expired a little after one o'clock on Friday morning, after suffering the most excruciating pain.  He was very greatly respected by his employers, Messrs. Grasby and Reynolds, and a numerous circle of friends and relatives.  He was the youngest son of the late Captain George Sargeant, of Wintringham, near Barton, Lincolnshire, and was in the 31st year of his age.

16th August 1883
DAWSON'S DEFALCATIONS.- At a meeting of the Brigg Board of Guardians on the 16th, a letter was read from Mr Jabez Spencer, overseer of the poor for the parish of Winteringham, requesting the guardians to allow the last payment of the union call to be put off until the 29th September, stating as his reason for the application that the defalcations of Mr Wm. Dawson, who recently absconded, had made dreadful work among the small farmers in the parish.  The application was granted, the Chairman remarking that he knew that a number of small farmers had suffered heavy losses through Dawson. - It is alleged that some of the frauds committed by Dawson were of a most ingenious and impudent character, and that he actually broke open his children's money boxes, and in place of the several pounds which he abstracted he left in them some worthless cheques.  It is also rumoured that he was seen in Winterton on Wednesday night, and at Doncaster on Thursday, when it was supposed that a warrant was out for his arrest, but there is a strong feeling in the district that no effort has been made to secure him.  The girl who is supposed to have accompanied him it is said still corresponds with her friends.  We were erroneously informed last week as to the last text from which he preached before his absconding.  It is the latter part of the 1st verse of the 63rd chapter of Isaiah.  The delinquent possessed a remarkable memory, and has long been known as a pulpit plagiarist.
