Moss Family School Photo, Winteringham FC about 1947-8

On this day in Winteringham ....

1909: Edwin Bray advertised two cottages for let.

1918: Joseph Herbert Green, the son of John and Mary Ellen Green of Silver Street Winteringham, died on 26th March 1918, aged 28.  He was a private in the Lincolnshire Regiment, 1st Battalion.  He is commemorated on the Pozieres Memorial.


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.

13th March 1874
To the editor of the "Hull Packet"
Sir, - Bills are being circulated in this neighbourhood, headed "Evangelization Society" and announcing that "gospel addresses" will be given nearly every day this week at Winteringham. "The unsaved, and those who are not in the habit of attending any place of worship, are affectionately invited to come and hear. As the services are  purely unsectarian, the co-operation of Christians of all denominations is earnestly desired."  An agent of this society was working a short time ago in a parish not far from Winteringham, and many Church people were drawn by this announcement to   look upon the effort with a sympathetic interest. But upon the occasion of his last address, to a large audience, tracts or handbills were distributed broadcast on "Ritualism and the Confessional." And this in a parish where there is nothing of the kind at church. Whatever there may be of confession in the properly conducted class meetings of the Wesleyan Society, allow me to ask :-1. Are Ritualism and the Confessional the besetting sins, or the greatest dangers, of "those who are not in the habit of attending any place of worship"?  2. Is not the distribution of such papers an express or an implicit attack upon the Church of England? Will it not be so understood by those who receive them?  3. Is such an attack consistent with the non-sectarian profession above quoted? Depend upon it, sir, whatever we may call ourselves, there are enough of our own denomination to be made consistent - and enough "outsiders" to labour among - without compassing sea and land to make proselytes from the Church, or to raise capital out of a party cry that we know to be unfounded.  Surely in religion even more than in business
