I was born Norma Sanderson in 1947 at the hall. My father was chauffeur for Leroy Lewis. I was christened in St Cuthberts and I remember as a little girl seeing a plaque on the wall of the church with the name Leroy Lewis on it, my dad drove her in a big black car on her trips, I think to London.
I wish someone would start up a Kirkleatham History Group, the place just oozes history. and.... there have been Mowbrays in Kirkleatham for over 150 years. Mowbray history researcher and former residen (Anne).
