Question on Ryton House
Hello everyone, I am doing some genealogy work and found a distant relative who was a groom at Ryton House (as listed on the census). I can't find any reference to it online, does anyone remember such a place or have any idea what it might mean.
Thanks in advance
Memories of Shropshire
Daughter of The Village Bobby
I was born in the police house at Norton, the 4th child of Nigel and Beryl Evans, in 1958. I loved growing up there next to the farm, now the Hundred House car park. I was always out with Uncle Wood, fetching the cows in, helping him with the milking, mucking out. I had my own special pikel! Ggetting the eggs from under the hens, finding wild kittens in the barns, I could go on.

It was when I was a little girl, Mr Goliah used to regularly visit my dad and I think at one stage he dropped off a load of cattle manure with a horse and cart for our garden. I can also remember the milkman in the early 1950s delivering milk with the horse and cart. What a memory. My name is Jane, my maiden name was 'Humphries'. My brother still lives there at Custer Castle in Shaw Lane. Dad, better known as 'Jack', used to run the bakery in Aston Street with a cake shop in Bradford Street. We lived over the shop (and a toy shop in the corner). My father worked for Lloyds the Grocers which was in Park Street (can't remember what the place is now but the building is still there). There was an abattoir behind the grocery shop and one of my earliest memories was of dad wheeling our bacon pig down from our... Read more
