Re: thomas Thackeray - Yorkshire
Yes I remember the family on the barge at Weel.I visited it when I was around four prior to WWII.I am sure that I first met you after the war when you were a young lad living with your mother at a house on Grovehill Road near Barmston Drain and later in Beverley when I was home on a holiday. It appears that your grandfather and my grandfather were brothers.Ned my grandfather had a seafarers boarding house in Potters Hill near Beverley Beck.
I have had several Queries lately from female decendents who seem to be related to your part of the family.One Annette Jane has several photographs of the Thackeray family both on the barge and at a family gathering on the Hull river bank.
Although my grandfather had some twelve or more children I am afrid that there only seems to be my cousin Raymond who lives at Woodmansey around the Beverley area these days.
Hope to hear from you again.
