Just a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed visiting the Springthorpe web site while sitting in an office in Perth, Australia. My sister Heather and her daughter live in Church Lane, so, during a quiet moment I did a Google search on Springthorpe and stumbled across your web site. Very enjoyavble, especially the photo tour -- brings back a few memories.

This is a wonderful site. I've had the pleasure of visiting the Village and I'm glad to know there's now a website to go.
I have collected a lot of genealogical information on SPRINGTHORPEs, but have yet to actually trace anyone back to the village. I just need to keep digging.
I even have a newspaper article about a bunch of us Springthorpes getting together in the village of Springthorpe. This occurred about 10 or 12 years ago. We all met back at the home of Michael Anyan. It was wonderful. I've been remiss in not keeping up my correspondence with Mr. Anyan. Will have to write him soon.
I have another tie to your area. A late cousin of mine, Karl Wood, was an art teacher in the Gainsborough area.
Thank you for responding and, with your kind permission, I will add your name to my electronic rolodex and put a note on my calendar to contact you in the future.

I have just been surfing and have come across your Springthorpe web site.
One of the streets you have asked for help in identifying is "Magin Moor". Magin Moor is currently owned by my parents and sits within the parish boundary of Corringham, not Springthorpe. It is about 2 miles outside of Springthorpe on the A631 between Corringham and Harpswell.
On the site at present are two cottages although the deeds record that there was once a farm on the site. This would tie in with your evidence from the 1861 census, Toyne Booth Farmer.
Have a look at www.multimap.co.uk enter the post code DN21 5RQ, this will give you both a map and an areal photograph of the location.
Hope this is of use.

What you may not have realised was that his son Thomas became Lord Mayor of London in 1775, and Thomas had two second cousins Samuel, bishop of Gloucester and St Asaph, and Robert, Physician to the Prince of Wales (later Geo IV). Thomas was a co-founder of the bank Glyn, Mills and Hallifax and is said to have been fabulously wealthy.
