Latest Update: 26th September 2016

Alan Frost, Winteringham Stores (at the time they were owned by Arthur Bell)

On this day in Winteringham ....

1066:  The Viking survivors of the Battle of Stamford Bridge were allowed to leave on condition that they promised never to invade England again.  They required only 24 ships (300 had sailed past Winteringham just 8 days earlier on their way to battle) to return home, and probably passed Winteringham on this day.

1317: King Edward II granted charter to John Marmion for a fair and market.  The market was to be held each Wednesday, and the fair on the "vigil" (eve), feast and morrow of Mary Magdalen (27th to 29th July) each year.

1879: PC Baines summoned John Lusby to Winterton petty sessions, for using a carriage in Winteringham without his name thereon on the 26th August.  Fined 25s.  He was further charged with keeping a dog without a licence on the same date .... and fined a further 20s with 9s 6d costs!

1896: John Slingsby fell off a ladder as he carried a large basket of pears down from the tree.  He complained of having broken his wrist.  Dr Botham attended, and found him suffering from shock, dislocation of the left shoulder, and injury to the head.  When he attended him on Sunday 27th, he was unconscious, and the doctor attributed death to laceration of the brain.  Verdict: accidental.

1906: Eccentric local "Phoebe Bill" William Robinson died.  He had lived the life of a hermit in one of Earl Carrington's free houses at Town End with his mother Phoebe Robinson, who had died 23 years earlier.  He came out only at night, stayed in all day, and was generally rude to anyone who knocked on his door.  His age was unknown, but was thought to be 75.  He was very fond of music, and at Christmas time would be heard at midnight playing his flute in the streets, which he played very well indeed.  He left several flutes, a clarinet, and a big drum.  He rarely worked, and is thought to have cost the parish no less than 300.

1946: "HMI called to consider the question of a dining hall."

2008: Winteringham School held an 80th anniversary celebration of the opening of the school buildings in School Road, to coincide with the official opening of a new dining room and kitchen.



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).

A request from Sarah:   I have been trying to find out where the original manuscript of Adam's 'Private Thoughts' is located, I know that it was translated and edited from the shorthand journal Adam kept and would very much like the opportunity to see that journal if it still exists. Any information you can give me about this would be extremely useful.
