Lords Saddle & Harness Makers

My ancestors lived in Thrapston from the early 1800s to 1917. They were saddle and harness makers, does anyone have any pictures of the shop? I believe it was near to the King's public house.

My great great grandfather Matthew Stannett was an elementary teacher along with his wife Sarah Bush Bolton (Stannett). They lived in the school house in 1881 with their five children. Has anyone got a photo of the house or know of the Stannett family?

Kings Arms

My family owned this public house in the 19th century. Their name was Mary and John T Hull, has anyone a history of this public house? I have visited in 'modern' times and walked Thrapston's roads just to feel the place. I hope someone can help.

My aunt and uncle Ho adopted me in 1963, used to run the shop on Charles St for John Petch. If anyone can remember me or has any photos of Thrapston in the sixties I would love to hear from you. dennis.taylor
