During the course of my serious research over almost three decades, I have acquired information that is outside my main interests. However, these snippets of information that have been forthcoming may be of interest and help to others and with this in mind, I have included some of it herein.,
Although some of these images relate to Stainsby school, many of the pupils appearing thereon are children from the nearby village of Doe Lea.
Due to the age of these images, it is difficult to identify the individuals thereon. I am indebted to Mr. Victor Fletcher and his wife Joan for bringing these images to my attention. Enquiries will continue to try and identify the children on |
The next image below is another image of Stainsby Council school children, possibly Class 'E', that has been passed on to me.(8 May 2009). I am indebted to Mrs. Kirsten Burrell for bringing this image to my attention. It is believed to have been taken in the period 1914 to 1918, during World War 1. Again I am sure there will be children from Doe Lea. hereon. Although not identified, I am sure the man on the left of the image is the Headmaster Mr. Reuben Fletcher, but I stand to be corrected. Two children have been identified namely, Laurence Twiggs, 5th. boy from left seated on the bench and 5th. boy from right middle row standing as 'Dick' Noon. Enquiries will continue to try and identify the children on these images.
'Dick' Noon of Rowthorne married Enid Wild, who was 'in service' as a housemaid/parlourmaid at Glapwell Hall during the 1930s. This couple lived on Rowthorne Lane at Glapwell for many years.
Their daughter Wendy Noon, worked as a teacher at Palterton Primary school for several years from 1963, hence we have a connection between Stainsby, Rowthorne, Glapwell and Palterton.
