Family at Home
My great-grandparents, named Evison, lived at Riby Lodge about late 1800/1900. This is as clear as I can be, my great grandfather was the gardener for Riby Hall and connected to the church either as a curate or lay preacher. They are buried I believe in the church yard. As a child I visited my Great Aunt Constance who lived at the Crossroads and I attended at least 2 weddings at the church when the family married, once as a bridesmaid, the receptions were held at the school near the church. As far as I can remember, the children of my great-grandparents were George, Arthur, Herbert, Fanny, Alice,and Constance, there could have been one more. Alice was my grandmother.
3 Old Chapel Lane
My grandparents also lived in this bungalow and I too have cherished memories. My grandpaernts where in it till around 1981 when sadly my granddad died. My grand parents names were Edith and Arthur Carter. My dad was born in this bungalow on May 7th 1945 just as the news of the surrender of the Germans came, my nanna always said she missed out on the party because my dad came along hehe. My aunt and uncle also lived here Gordon and Jean Carter.
I lodged with the farmer and his wife in 1957 approx as groom to their two hunters. Does anyone remember them or their names. I believe there was a daughter aged 2 years.
A Bike Ride
I recall one of my younger days where I and a young girlfriend of mine decided to go on a biking holiday. I bought two Dawes Racing bikes which were equipped with panniers. Off we went from Royston, near Barnsley where we'd have to through some parts of Sheffield's hilly districts. We had our sleeping bags and slept in individual bags, only a few inches apart. It was eight o'clock in the morning when we were to wake up only to find a policeman standing over us. All he wanted to know was if either one of us were runaways, he then bid us goodbye. The next stage of our visit was for us to camp in some field off the roadside; we got straw and made ourselves a bed to lay on. Finally, we got to Cleethorpes when I suddenly realised that Bryony was not behind me anymore. I turned back round and after ten minutes I was to find her bike against a shop, the store had just...

Grimsby Bull Ring
I was a teenager at the time of the photo. I remember cycling through the Bull Ring at a heck of a pace having picked up speed coming down Deansgate Bridge,
then having to brake hard to negotiate the chicane into Victoria Street.
You can clearly see centre right the top of the underground toilets which I believe are still there.
If instead of going into Victoria Street you turned left, on the right was the Black Swan, affectionately known as the Mucky Duck. There was another pub/hotel on the opposite side of the road to the Black Swan but I can't remember its name.
All of the buildings in the foreground were demolished, but I think the building to the right of the white one in the background is Chambers Coffee Shop, the smells coming from there were amazing.
Sadly most of the old buildings have gone, along with the character of the town.
My Birth Place And Date
I was born in Grimsby in 1965 and proud of this. My mum died at these docks in 1971 by accident, she fell and drowned. I'd like to hear from anyone who knows my family or knew my mum, Josephine Martha Mary Tonner, maiden name George. My sister Lorraine died in 2001, and I have a sister called Francine. I'd love to have contact with her. Please email me if you can help at all.
