Hi Wendy, Just read your message, my father, Frank Lowthorpe was born in Hull. We may be very close. Yes i know of Lowthorpe the village, i first found out in 1973 when visiting the Bygone Museam in Scarborough, some artifacts from the stoneage are displayed there. I will try to compile a family tree to send to you. I can be emailed directly if you wish. email@example.com This may be easier to send any attachments.
There is only one other Lowthorpe listed in the Australian phone directory, not many of us left.
