Latest Update: 28th October 2016

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

On this day in Winteringham ....

1794:  Court Roll, Winteringham: Surrender of Edward Brooks of Winteringham, husbandman, and Dinah his wife, to the use of John Barratt of Winteringham, husbandman. All that undivided moiety of 4 cowgates and 1 horse gate in the common pastures called the Marsh, Rotten Sykes, Low Groves and Western Green, belonging to 2 messuages standing together in High Burgage, then or late in the occupation of Joseph Johnston, John Smith, William Bratton, the said Edward Brooks and John Barratt, in Winteringham. Rent: 3d. Fine: 6d. Lord: Robert Smith, esq. Deputy Steward: Nathaniel Main, gent.  See;

1813: Augustus Wardle was drowned in the Humber.  His body was not washed up until 27th October that year, dressed like a sailor.  Unidentified at first, but later identified as Augustus Wardle. Buried the next day.

1890: The Adelaide arrived in Hull, from Winteringham.

1930: Elijah Brumby of West End was lying in Scunthorpe Hospital with a fractured skull.  He had been found early on Saturday 25th October on Sluice Road, apparently having been thrown from his motor cycle when it skidded on the greasy road.



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.
