  2. Subang Jaya - State of Selangor Darul Ehsan - Malaysia - Friday 9-30am (10 miles South of Kuala Lumpur) Well, well, well, - I do have some information for you to think about Charles Wasteney was born in Ulley and from a large family Charles and Charlotte had daughters and one son Charlotte (Lotte) was the oldest Ethel was next oldest and my grandmother = married to Elias Marshall Others I remember from regular family gatherings are Hilda who married John Cope and lived on Red Hill, had a son who was a schoolteacher - Geoff, hee married ??? Wainscoat from Hartill farming family Anis of course who married Horace Sayles Your mother Phyllis was the youngest and about the same age as my mother Jessie Joseph was the only boy and married a girl from Sheffield area by the name off Olive Ada who died young from cancer - she was married to a guy in the police force by the name of Bernard Guest Ruth who married Elis Batty (blnded by mustard gas in WW1 - you will remember them - son was called Lloyd and daughter was Gwynneth - Gwynneth married a local guy Ray Thorpe who was a driver for Home Coal deliveries based somewhere at the tope of the road down to Harthill - had a son Ray and a Daughter Marrion or Marriane - you may remember them from kiveton school My parents were very friendly with Gwynneth and Ray and we often went out for days on Sundays and also Saturday evening - Ray and myself would go to the local cinema or to Worksop cinema - then of course there was Kiveton Fair held on the waste land close to your house. At the time Gwynneth and Ray lived in the pre-fabs on the estate behind your house Later they moved to a house on the road which runs behind the houses on the main road where Anis and Horace lived - last time I spoke to them would be pre late 2006 before I moved to Malaysia an at the time the lived on Storth Lane - no idea about Ray but Gwynneth told me that Marrion lived in Nottingham and was a area sales manager for a company. I remember Anis and Horace lived at the other side of the road from your house but a bit further up towards Wales I remember Great Grandmother Charlotte firstly when we visited every few days at the time she lived on Swallownest High Street almost opposite the end of School Street (Lotte and her husband Harry Lister lived on School Street). At the time Great Grandfather Charles was bedridden and had a bed in the front room of the house Great Grandfather died and Great Grandmother moved to the Granny Flat where Phyllis lived I used to go visit her about every 10 days with my Grandmother - your Auntie Ethel I was born July 01 1940 in Swallownest so you can work out the dates etc from that - in effect you are my uncle !! and have never sent your nephew a Birthday card, Christmas card or present (flood of tears) Think that's the lot - I can remember them all quite vividly because we had very regular family get togethers before the birth of tv became a distraction Charlotte and Charles are buried in the old part of Aston Cemetery, and close to their grave is the grave of Ada, my grandparents are buried further down towards the bottom of the cemetery on the left hand side, Joe and Olive are buried in the Aston Cemetery new section Remember Ron Canwell of course, bit of a rogue to say the least. Also knew his son also called Ron I have Wasteney history back to about 930AD when they lived in France just south of Paris. 2 brother Gaufrie and Willem came to England in 1066AD with William of Orange to fight English King Harold at the Historic Battle of Hastings - after the battle they were Knighted and William of Orange proclaimed himself King William 1st of All England and France - there is a lot more of course If you live near Todwick you will see the Wasteney Family Coat of Arms on the village entrance sign, plus some burials in the church yard - one quite famous one being Sir Hardolph Wasteney Bart. Wasteneys were also co-owners of Roche Abbey As for Charles Wasteney, one of his brothers, Edmund, emigrated to New Zealand on the first emigrant ship on April 22 1841. On the long sea voyage he met with 2 other who were business minded and they agreed that upon landing in NZ they should find a suitable location for a new town. This they found and marked out the town square planted with a magnolia tree. This is now the major NZ City of Nelson. Many Wasteney sheep farmers in NZ Hope this "grabs your interest" Await your reply - may be a good idea to send me your e mail address for further information and attachments Best Regards from Malaysia - hot and sunny 365 days a year, no seasons, only 97 right now at 10-00am but will be around 109/110 by mid day Victor - (Victor Marshall Hutchinson)
  3. Late last year I met with a client company in Abu Dhabi and as it turned out the project manager was from the uk - somewhere in the north east but right now I cannot remember until I look in the project file His close relatives lived in the row of cottages just before the Lord Conyers Arms some years ago - all dead now of course. He did give me their names at the time and that also will be in the project file at my office here in Malaysia He remembered when younger visiting them regularly and also going down to the fishing ponds. When younger we often rode our bikes from Swallownest to Aston then down he side of he church to the ponds. I note now that they have been commercialised into a business. My daughter told me they hd visited them (she lives at Brandesburton just our side of Driffield) and they have Starr Cars fishing Lakes, 4 no stocked lakes with hard standing for visitor caravans and also they have built very plush cabins for rent Cannot think of the Roy Grace right now unless he was a year above or below me at the time Another name I recall from the area was a Jaqueline Jones - blonde girl turned out to be very attractive as the years rolled by according to some friends who knew her There was also a rather chubby girl called Rosemary ??? Just remembered - the joiner I referred to was called Charles Harrison - with his wife Phyllis (my grandmothers youngest sister) they had 2 no sons maybe now in their early 70's - think they emigrated to Australia soon after my great grandmother Charlotte Wasteney died Also remembered that Ray and Gwynneth Thorpe lived on Storth Lane when they were alive -m certainly there before I left Driffield for Malaysia end of 2006 because I remember phoning them Back around 1957/8 I knew a lad due to him going out with a Swallownest girl by the name of Pauline Deakin, in our class at Swallownest school The lad worked at one of the pits, possibly Waleswood and although possibly on ly 18/19 ad a very fast Triumph Speed Twin and he used to ride it far too fast and take far too man y risks - goggles on but no proper clothing or crash helmet He was doing his usual dangerous riding one day between Aston and Wales Bar and somewhere after the bottom of the dip in the road and before the bridge he came off and was killed - that is what I remember unless you can refine it Memories keep trickling back of course Hope you and your family are virus free and that you continue to be so Very Best Regards - Victor
  4. I was born July 1940 and lived in Swallownest unitl 1966/7 I remember Wales Bar very well and the Lord Conyers Arms on the corner where the road turns up towards Kiveton My mothers cousin was a teacher at the school in the late 1940/early 1950 period - Geoff Cope son of John Cope and Hilda Cope who lived on Red Hill - Hilda was my grandmothers younger sister Another cousin of hers married to a guy by the name of Ron Canwell, he had a son about 3/4 years younger than myself - his parents were Horace and Annice Sayles Another cousin Gwyneth Batty married to a well known local guy Ray Thorpe, who also had a son called Ray Thorpe and a daughter Marion My great grandmother lived in Kiveton but her son in law was a well known joiner - Charles ?? their bungalow was almost next to the field where Kiveton Fair was held From my years at Woodhouse Grammar School 1951- 1958 there were pupils from Wales and Kiveton/Kiveton Park/Harthill Names I remember - Sandra Fenton, Jeff Woodward, Derek Eyley, Brian Elsey, Wainscotes, (tink one of my mothers Wainscote cousins was also a teacher at Wales school at some point - Worthy Cope I can see many other faces in my mind but cannot put names to them as yet Will keep thinking - Victor Hutchinson - Wangsa Baiduri, State of Selangor, Malaysia
  5. No idea - all I know is that back in 1957/58 I worked at Hubert Smith and Co Accountants on Campo Lane and we used to Audit their books of account every year for their financial year end and taxation purposes Not sure but think the manager as Irish - big guy Wonder if the number referred to bricks produced via a specific brick forming machine or a specific furnace - this would help them to identify any production problems/quality etc and pin point the problem machine or area Just a guess though Regards - Victor - Subang Jaya, State of Selangor, Malaysia
  6. sign of the times - prices go up but never down
  7. Correct - Nescafe is terrible, same as Cona and the types in places like McD and KFC etc Here in Malaysia the same jar is max UK Pounds 2-75 in major supermarkets such as Tesco, AEON, Jaya, Giant etc But has to be cheap because we have shelves and shelves of different coffees on sale, from Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia etc and excellent drinking strength and taste Nescafe is full of advertising hype, similar to Heinz and Kraft with their Plastic Cheese etc and cans of beans and soups etc with minimum taste - the Heinz Beans are too thin and watery and best avoided
  8. Wonder if anyone remembers my late brother in law - Brian Turner He worked there at he time I first met him in late 1962. Lived in a house on road at the side of the Sheffield Wednesday football ground. There back yard was in fact under the stand. As far as I know he was a van driver at the time but no idea where his round was other than he would call at his moters during some days on Beaumont Way, Manor He then moved to customer satisfaction and went around to sort out complaints at shops or homes. Last I heard he moved to Anston but later died - that would maybe as far back as 1970's After I was divorced from my first wife in 1982 I lost contact with Brian because in addition II had lived in Driffield from 1967 and from 2006 here in Malaysia Any news update would be interesting Best Wishes - Victor
  9. May not be connected, but I knew a guy by the name Hukin back in 1975 and for abut 5/6 years thereafter - cannot remember his first name at the moment though At the time he would be in his early 40's - he was a senior partner with a firm of solicitors in Hull I knew him as a Past President of the Hull Junior Chamber of Commerce and Shipping Regards - Victor - Malaysia
  10. Aha Briret now I remember - at that time food was good at lunchtimes Thanks for reminding me of the name Regards - Victor - Selangor - Malaysia
  11. Re Littledale Estate - 1960/63 when I worked at J.Stead Tools Manor Lane there was a guy who worked in the grinding dept by the name of John Surr, he lived on Littledale, and if still alive will be over 90 now maybe 95 even Around 1981/2 I often went for lunch at the pub on Littledale, but cannot remember the name Victor - Selangor, Malaysia
  12. Ah yes - Shiphams is the name I could not remember from many years ago - they made a number of varieties Thank you Arthur Ritus Regards - Victor
  13. Was it Heinz Sandwich Spread ?? " dubbub" I first remember it about 1950/51 when I was much younger and lived in Swallownest (1940 - 1967) Not seen it for years and years, until about 4 months ago when I found it in a supermarket here which sells UK and imported foods etc (non-muslim food) Still tastes exactly how I remember it tasted many years ago But there was also Shiphams Pastes, they manufactured many different ones Also one which came into the shops about 1950 in small white pots - first was a Shrimp Paste - manufacturer was Van Smirren No recollection of the tv advert though even though we had a tv from about 1947/8 Hope this information helps you in your search Here = Malaysia Best Regards - Victor (7-50am and now 94 degrees with clear blue sky - same 365 days - we do not have seasons just continual hot summertime - be around 103 - 108 by mid day)
  14. Just remembered there was a girl working in the packing dept by the name of Maw, but I have no idea of her first name - but she was certainly from the Wybourn. In 1959/1963 she would probably be late teens - nice looking with dark hair - always seemed to be a bit upmarket to most of the others Can visualise her face now, plus all of the others I have mentioned, but after 57 years some names, of complete names currently do not come into my mind I married a girl from Steads in July 1963, name of Margaret Turner, but from Beaumont Way, Manor PPark and I know she did not attend Wyboune School - cannot ask her re any names because I have been divorced from her since 1982 and very happily married since that episode in my life She was very well known there and anyone you come across from those years at Steads will certainly know her - blonde girl who worked in the file grinding department - 1958 to June 1963 Best Wishes - Victor
  15. Try looking at the threads for J Stead and Co because many names crop up there - also known as Balfour-Darwin Tool Division I worked there in the Production Control Dept 1959-Feb 1963 (with Ray Walker who was Assistant Works Manager) and many of the employees at the time may fit into your search - however the girls names will be there maiden names at the time Joyce Jubb and at least 2 no of her sisters worked in the grinding department Biily Foulston head guy on the loading bay and readying shipping crates Elijah ??? worked in the scouring dept Pauline ?? worked in the finished goods store Nellie ??? in charge of the packaging dept Ivy Tandy (married to Bill Tandy) production control dept Sylvia Maskery (married to Terry Cheetham) production control dept Marples girls and their young brother - various departments Adrian ??? Preskey Many others but from areas outside of Wybourn - such as Manor, Darnall, Attercluffe, Mnor Park etc and much older than the time you are looking at I will come back on this if I remember any more Best Wishes and Good Luck (Bon Chance) in your quest Victor Marshall Hutchinson - (now 79.1/2) - Swallownest at the time, then in 1967 to Driffield (near Bridlington,) then to Malaysia from late 2006 - my current residential location 70% and Dubai 25%
