Latest Update: 20th January 2017

Alan Frost, Winteringham Stores (at the time they were owned by Arthur Bell)

On this day in Winteringham ....

1848: The Ship Inn sold by auction at the Bay Horse.

1916: At Barton County Court, two men, new to farming, wanted a horse, and bought one from Winteringham horse and cattle dealer William Sewell.  Unfortunately, the horse would not work, even to pull a harrow, so, as per deal they took it back but did not get a full refund of their money.  The judge ordered it to be paid.



The Grocer and Draper’s shop you have in your High Burgage photos, used to be my ggg grandfather’s in the late 1830s-early 1840s. He was William Kirk born around 1810 (outside Lincolnshire) and died around 1846 (probably Hull) His wife Ann(Fox) died 1835 and he re-married to Martha Horner. He had a son John born 1833 in Burringham.

Do you have any suggestions as to where I can find more information on William e.g place of birth.


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).

A request from Sarah:   I have been trying to find out where the original manuscript of Adam's 'Private Thoughts' is located, I know that it was translated and edited from the shorthand journal Adam kept and would very much like the opportunity to see that journal if it still exists. Any information you can give me about this would be extremely useful.

NATIONAL MIXED SCHOOL.- A New Year's treat in the shape of an excellent tea, &c., was provided on New Year's Day for the whole of the children attending the school, being the result of an appeal made to the principal employers of labour and others in the parish, and how liberally this was responded to a sight of the tables, literally loaded with a variety of good things, amply testified.  As might be expected, ample justice was done to the repast, the joyful countenances of the children needing no words to express their thankfulness.  After tea the evening was spent in games of various kinds, interspersed with singing and busy scrambles for apples, nuts, and sweets, of which there was a liberal supply.  At the conclusion the children were addressed by the Rector, the Rev C. Knowles, their hearty cheers afterwards bearing full testimony - if any were needed - to the manner in which they had enjoyed themselves.  A couple of oranges being given to each child, the singing of the National Anthem closed a pleasant evening's entertainment.  The following were the ladies and gentlemen who so kindly contributed to the entertainment, some in money, some in kind, and others in both: - Mrs Chapman, Mrs Knowles, Mrs Robert Burkill, Mrs Joshia Robinson, Mrs Pulleine, Mrs Frank Robinson, Mrs Sutton, Mrs Josheph [sic] Burkill, Mrs Bickell, Miss Scarborough [sic], Mrs Hy.

WESLEYAN BAND OF HOPE. - On Monday, the 5th inst., a lecture was delivered by the Rev. J. Whitely, principal of St. Augustine School, Hull, in the National Schoolroom, kindly lent by the Rev. C. Knowles, who presided over the meeting.  In the course of his lecture, which lasted a little over an hour, the lecturer spoke of the benefit of total abstinence, which had been proved by many present for muscular energy, and by himself for brain work.  The parents and friends of the young were strongly urged to help forward the movement.  After speaking of the self-sacrifice of One whose example all were urged to follow, who so looked at our interests as a race, that He gave His life a ransom for ours, instances of heroic conduct and self-sacrificing courage in the history of our country were placed before the minds of the people.  The rev. gentleman went on to show the danger in the present educational policy of our country of cramming rather than opening the intellect of our youth, and concluded with a warm appeal to the young men and women present to become thinkers, and thus general benefactors of their village and nation.  The audience was large, and listened throughout with rapt attention, broken only by frequent bursts of applause, which demonstrations were loud and long.  We are glad to learn that the lecturer has promised to pay the village another visit during the coming season.
