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 ....

1300s: A fair was held this day (the Eve of the Feast of Mary Magdelene), and the two days after.

1826: Hull Sessions Thursday 27th July 1826, Ann Denton was charged, upon the oath of Christiana Bell, the wife of Francis Bell, of Winteringham, in the county of Lincoln, farmer, and others, with having uttered and paid to her, the said C. Bell, one counterfeit half-crown, she then said Ann Denton having at the same time one other half-crown and a counterfeit shilling in her possession.  To be imprisoned twelve calendar months, and find sureties for her good behaviour for two years.

1831: GC Clarke's school reopened for the new term.  20 to 24 guineas per annum (depending on the age of the pupil), with entrance 1 guinea.  Washing and mending were another 2 guineas, and if the parents wished their sons to learn French from an approved master that was “on the usual terms.”  Only stationery and use of the globes attracted further cost, unless a pupil failed to bring a silver table spoon which would cost 5s for one in lieu.  A quarter's notice, or pay required, previous to the removal of a pupil.  Among a list of referees was Rev Grainger.

1838: The Stamford Mercury reported an on-going litigation about rights of access at Winteringham Haven.  In short, Mr Burkhill had a coal-yard at the Haven, but also set up one at the public landing-ground, and put up a fence to prevent a new firm from landing coal there, blocking the public right of way.

1857: In the evening, the son of Mr Judge of Winteringham, who had entered Mr Hodson's School at Barton that very day, was swinging round a pole erected in the school-yard along with other boys, when it broke and hurt him very severely.

1860: There is a man living in this parish, who has wheeled a barrow seven miles (Sundays excepted) for the past 30 years, and the same barrow has been used the whole of this time. (from the Hull Packet);

1877: The Brigg and Winteringham Mail Cart was returning to Brigg when the horse shied, fell, broke both its knees and knocked the front off the mail cart at Castlethorpe.  Although the driver was pitched out, he was not seriously hurt and was able to take the bags to Brigg.

1882: At a meeting of the Humber Conservancy Board, it was reported that just one more payment was due to be paid to Her Majesty's Office of Woods for the purchase of Read's Island by the Board.

1896: A long letter in the Hull Daily Mail complained of professional gamblers at Winteringham Sports earlier in the month, with men standing on boxes calling out the odds on various cyclists.  He further complained of bad language.  He further suggested that the police present might have turned a blind eye to the roulette-table in full swing in the middle of the field!

1901: Winteringham were comprehensively beaten at Winterton by 147 runs to 20.  Winteringham's batsmen were:
J W Barratt 2
W Sewell 0
H Bray 0
A Barr 3
A Sutton 5
W Sutton 0
Routh 0

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).

The Hull Packet reported: BROUGH FERRY. - This is one of the few remaining royal-chartered ferries, and is of very ancient origin, being situate upon the old Roman road from Lincoln to York, or, if you please, from London to Edinburgh.  It crosses the Humber from Wintringham, in Lincolnshire, to Brough on the Yorkshire side, at a distance of ten miles due west from Hull, and 20 east of Selby.  Brough is a station on the Hull and Selby Railway, where twelve mixed trains, with goods and passengers, call daily.  The journey to Selby is regularly performed within an hour, and that to Hull usually in something less than half that perod.  We boast, in these days of strait [sic] lines on railroads; and the Hull and Selby railroad, for eighteen miles west of Brough, presents we believe, as fine a specimen in this respect as is to be met with in England; but the road from Wintringham to Lincoln silently hints that that which has been shall be, and where is there anything new under the sun?  The distance from Wintringham to Lincoln is thirty miles, without a curve or a turn; it is, however, in great part a broad green lane, which the newly-established steam-ferry at Brough is perhaps calculated to mar the beauty of.  The ferry in questions has a strong claim upon the Lincolnshire breeders.
