It seems all focused on Tottington and broadly the Bury/Bolton area. This of course will continue to grow. However my father can trace his history back to Harmston, thence to India, Cornwall and then via London to Tottington. Pix and info to follow. He had a large family too! Then of course is my wife's family, father from what we thought was originally Sussex, but we now know Hampshire! Last but not least my mother-in-Law, part German and part Polish.
Probably time for some sort of Genealogy table!

West Hartlepool UDC


Picture of the officers or West Hartlepool circa 1930 to 1935. My Grandfather (Tom Lomax) is on the top-right corner. This was his second appointment as he climbed up the "Borough Surveyor" chain. He later moved to Rhyl in North Wales. He was the designer of the sea wall there. He used a comparitivly unknown and untested contractor for this job. George Dew always delivered a fine turkey at Christmas to Tom. One year it would not even go in the oven!
