Hi, I was looking at the info on Edward Kitching School Which says it closed in 1967. This is incorrect as I attended this school for a short while in the early 80s before going on to Roseberry Primary School. I'm guessing the engineering firm took over the premises in the mid to late 1980s.
Where do you have the info on Sarah as being born Gt Ayton? Free BMD has the only marriage with a Sara/h Hutchinson and John Jones on the same page between 1870 and 1900 taking place in Rotherham in Sept Q 1882. Do you have any certs?
Hi I wonder if anyone can help me - I am tracing my family history and my great grandmother is Sarah Hutchinson whose husband was John Jones. I have found both a Sarah Hutchinson and a John Jones in the marriage records in 1873 but they are not married to each other - Sarah marries an Archibald Murray and John marries a Mary Ann Appleton - there was a Robert William Murray who died age 2 months shortly after the marriage of Sarah and Archibald - i'm wondering if this had any significance and if anyone can shed any light on events for me? My John Jones came from Wales and was a Miner - Archibald was also a Miner - I would really appreciate it if someone can help me to get a little further or to point me in the right direction.
And I should have said this at the beginning of my message but a big thankyou for the work that has been done on transcribing these records and making them available they are fascinating!!
Look forward to hearing from you,

I've been researching information regarding the previous owners of our property, one of whom is William Crisp, I think this is who you are referring to within your text. I would be interested to find out any further information if you can help at all please.
I sent your email to Dan O'Sullivan. His reply was:
The 1841 census for Ayton is very difficult to read. I've had a look at it again. Back Row is
certainly close to the High Green. I'm pretty sure its the little road that runs behind the High
Street, from the Cook museum through to Worthy Pearsons.
I don't see anyone called Errington Nichols on Back Row, nor anywhere called Yonder Ridge
(but they didn't give any names of houses in that census). There is a Robert Nichols, aged 15,
who seems to be living with a woman called (perhaps) Mary Hauxwell, aged 72. Hauxwell
was a well known name in Ayton then.
all the best,
A paternal ancestor by the delightful name of Errington Nichols was born in Great Ayton in 1835. In the 1841 census he was living at "Yonder Ridge", Back Row, Ayton.
I was wondering if you have come across Back Row before and might know where it is/was.
Thank you so much for all your hard work in producing the parish records so carefully. I have found lots of members of my family (Hornby) in the records.
I wonder if you could help, a certain picture on the website is causing a lot of debate on Facebook, its the picture of Langholme crescent 1902 nobody seems to know where it is/was in Great Ayton its picture 763
I have not tried with the new Google + but I can still access my old libraries through Picassa
Hi Mike- I love the picture galleries on the site, but hey all seem to have been created on the old google system. Can you create the same thing with the new Google+? I have had no luck at all.
