Bernard Hunsley, Newspaper cuttings - Railway and Village Pump

On this day in Winteringham ....

1831: Meeting to fix rate for Church fabrication;

1907: The Bill regarding the building of a dock at Winteringham was before Parliament.  Hull Corporation sent a delegation to object to it, as it would be detrimental to the port of Hull.

1909: National School closed due to an outbreak of whooping cough.  Originally intended for 3 weeks, but a further extension meant it remained closed until June 7th;

1943: A miniature .22 shooting match took place at Winteringham between the Appleby and Winteringham sections of the Home Guard.  Twelve members of each section fired five shots each at 25 yards range in the open air.  Appleby won by 39, scoring 475 against Winteringham's 436.  Sgt N Jackson shot extremely well for Appleby, scoring a possible 50.

1946: First school dinners served at Winteringham School.  60 children stayed.

Bernard Hunsley


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.

Concrete Expert's Admission at Lincoln
That he had lived beyond his means was given as a reason for the lapse of Howard de Metz, 45, concrete expert, and a native of Brixton, who at Lindsey Quarter Sessions today, admitted that at Winteringham between April 14th 1936, and January 26th last, he converted to his own use £50 9s 8d which had been entrusted to him by his employers, the Franki Compressed Pile Co., Ltd.
It was stated that his employers did not desire extreme measures to be taken against him.
The magistrates bound him over in £10 for three years.
Prosecuting, Mr Sutton Nelthorpe stated that the offence took place while the accused was employed as superintendent on one of the firm's outside contracts.  His employers had not dispensed with his services, but he had been reduced to the position of a labourer.

NATIONAL SCHOOL. - A novel and somewhat interesting gathering took place in this building in the afternoon of the 18th inst., when the needlework done by the children attending the school during the previous twelve months was brought together, its excellence judged, and prizes awarded by ladies who kindly undertook the task.  The general character of the work was considered to reflect the considerable credit on the children, and on the schoolmistress too, and much interest was evinced in the result.  A sale of some of the work took place, the proceeds of which will be for the benefit of the school funds, and it is hoped hereafter that this sale will be better patronised than it could, perhaps, be expected to be now.  In addition to the prizes above-named a good conduct prize was awarded; and if friends of the school would kindly help, as they have promised, it is unlikely that the authorities may be able to give more liberally in future years than they were able to do now.

After various details of collections and sums attributed were made - it being noted that more than half the fund for the sick and the poor had been given to non-conformists, the problem of burial in the churchyard was raised ... space being at a premium.  It was suggested that if the church gave the ground to the parish, then the parish should bear the expense of building a substantial wall round it.  The meeting also carried the following motion unanimously "The Education Bill in its present form should be opposed as unjust to the children of Church people."  [Ed: The bill referred to was one that would have removed the legal obligation to teach RE in schools.  The Bill was defeated, and so it remains a requirement to this day!]
