Old Thorne

A Memory of Thorne

In 1851 my Grandfather had a sixty acre farm at 109 Finkle Street in Thorne. His name was also Richard and his wife's name was Harriet. Is there anyone in Thorne that could share any information with me about the Watson family in Thorne.
The earliest Watson I have found in Thorne in my family line was John Watson, born about 1740, and married Ann Glew about 1770 in Thorne.

A memory shared by Richard Watson , on Mar 22nd, 2007.
