Yorkshire (North Riding) / Re: Arthur h Ezard of Lingdale

Many Thanks for your help

I am researching the history of the house I was brought up in and people who occupied it over time.

I don't have the 1891/1901 address for the Ezards.

The 1939 address should read  DIXON St Lingdale, this is the house my parents bought about a decade later.

Could anyone please confirm an address for Arthur Henry Ezard br 1882 Huggate E/Yks resident at Lingdale, N/Yks by 1911, children Mona and Florence. Possibly Scarth St but unconfirmed ?



Yorkshire (North Riding) / SK(C)ROGGINS Diary of a Cleveland Miner
« on: Monday 25 March 19 14:42 GMT (UK)  »

For some time I have been researching the Diary of a Cleveland Miner (1873-1925) by William Rowbottom an Ironstone Miner and resident of Margrove Park & Charltons Terrace in what was North Yorks but is also better known as East Cleveland.   

The source is a transcription of the diary's entries published in the Cleveland Standard of Jan 28th 1939 which I found inserted inside a family bible that came into my belonging in the 1980s.

I have inserted my research in the form of a spreadsheet that stands at 352 entries, with the aim of
sharing the information I have found.

An handful of entries have eluded further information mainly because of their vagueness so having pursued them myself and came up blank thought the good folk of roots chat might be up for the challenge. The most vague is the following.

3rd April 1915   Skroggins left Boosebeck

9th May1916     Skroggins made a visit to Boosebeck. Much respected by all

Many many thanks to you all for all this marvelous information and your assistance.

The diary was transcribed and printed in The Cleveland Standard dated 1939 which I found a rather yellowed creased copy folded up inside a family bible. I have been researching its content for some years and have nearly traced information for each of entries although an handful will probably still defeat me because of their vagueness.
