I have a lot of family history originating from in and around Conisbrough. My Grandad on my Mum's side was a Tyas from Conisbrough, his Mum had a shop in Brooke Square. My Grandma, also on my Mum's side, was a Fox, the family originally coming from Shelfield in Walsall but moved to Conisbrough for the mining, there were also family connections with the Hinton and Birch families. The Fox amily lived on Tickhill Street and then Highfield Road. My Grandma and Grandad Tyas lived on Clifton Hill before moving to Sprotborough. 

I have also enjoyed looking at the pictures from Peglers as my Dad, Ray Hoggart, did his apprentiship there before going in the army in the late 1950s. It has been lovely being able to recognise some of his work colleagues who he often talked about. I have even spotted a picture of him playing his guitar in one of the pictures with his best friend!

Thank you very much letting me join your fascinating web pages.

Almost 20 years ago now, I discovered I have family links with Conisbrough. This followed the death of my mother, when I wrote to a few remaining aunties. While corresponding I happened to ask one if she had a photograph of my Grandfather George Stacey. My aunt kindly obliged, but she also sent me copies of newspaper articles and photographs relating to my Gt Grandfather Tom Stacey who stemmed from Conisbrough. Apparently, he was a well-known character, amazingly he was paying the very same rent to farm the land in the 1930's as his ancestor Tom Stacey in 1648 (due to some old deed). This did of course did give me an indicator as to where to look for my ancestors.

Tom Stacey died at Butterbusk Farm on his 77 birthday, sadly following his death, after 300 years none of his four sons took up farming and the tradition died. My own father grew up in Barnburgh but sent many a school holiday working on Butterbusk Farm in the late 1920’s & ‘30’s.

Peter Stacey, Wellington, New Zealand.  PS I'll be digging out some photos shortly - soon as I find out how it is done!
