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!

Dear Keith,

Thanks for all these photos! I've been looking at some of my Grandma & Grandad; Robert (Bob) and Charlotte (Lottie) Linstead. I'm going to need a relative to look through them with & help identify some of the others in the Linstead family album but I've enjoyed looking anyway.

It was difficult to find the album in the first place though; I had to go to 'recently added' and search through them until I saw a photo I recognised. Perhaps you could add a search button to the site? I don't know how easy that is as my computing skills are pretty basic but it would be a very useful tool.

Thanks again

I can remember Charlie Wooton,i was told he came from Lancashire during the war as a 'navvie',he was a  very clever man with wild plants and herbs etc,he could remove warts  and things with them.Although he lived in an old garden shed in tn what had been allotments at one time,he was spotlessly clean and every Sunday he would go to the Red Lion where mavis Harding the landlady used to cook his dinner for him.

Ladies Valley was just of the foot path as you got to the top of the crags, if you went to Conisborough North Cliff you will have had to run round the top of the Valley on the Cross Country Runs, they also did Motor Bike Scrambling there in the old days.
