An Appeal for Help (06 June '06)

From Mrs Gillian Primett

My Great Grandmother was Elizabeth Cuthbert from Barton on Humber - she married Ralph Nairn Allison - a commercial traveller for Allison Pianos. I don't know when they married but their first child was born in 1884 (Eleanor) - in Barton on Humber - my grandmother Florence Allison was born in London a year later.

If any Cuthberts, or anyone interested in my family history would like to contact me then initially email help@inbarton.co.uk and it will be passed on.


A plea for help (Nov '05)

Eric Curtis now living in Australia is looking for information/photographs about the Convent School in Barton.
He came to Barton near to the end of the Second World War with his mother, her older sister Mary and her baby daughter Marie. They came to Barton to be near his aunt's husband, Timothy O'Sullivan, who was serving in the RAF at Elsham aerodrome.
They rented upstairs rooms in a two or three storey house not far from the main street in Barton, which was near to a church with gravestones that can be read from the street.

Inbarton will also help where possible but cannot be held responsible for any outcome resulting from an appeal via this website. Do not give out names or addresses unless you are sure you want to. It is probably best initially to stick to the main facts ie. surname, relevant dates, information acquired so far and a contact email address.
