Fife / The Thistle tavern,Dunfermline
« on: Tuesday 19 February 08 20:42 GMT (UK)  »
Hi, is there anyone in Dunfermline who has been in the Thistle on baldridgeburn?

A relative of mine Margaret Sharp cook (Maggie) was the landlady there for some time probably after 1916 when she married. My mother even remembers going there when very young so they must have been there a while (she isn't that old!!)

I am aware that it is now the headquarters of the local folk club but do you know if there are any old photos etc inside?

I could contact them direct but if you are a budding folk music fan perhaps you can help.  :D

Northumberland / railway accident info please

I suspect i have found the death of my GG grandfather Thomas Charlton whom i have been stuck on for some time. I have a death certificate that states he died on 7 Sept 1871 in a railway accident in Newcastle area. He was a goods guard on the railway and died as a result of 'injuries sustained by railway trucks'. There was a coroners inquest on the 8th Set 1871. The N Archives  are unable to supply this at present so can anyone help? there was probably a report in the local paper -Evening Chronicle? I am hoping this will confirm his wifes name - Mary Ann and children whom I have details for. he was born in 1842 in percy main and 29 when he died.
i know of a book published by newcastle library - 'Signals to danger : railway accidents at Newcastle and in Northumberland 1851 - 1992. hope to see this soon.
