The Ayton family

would you be interested in three old photographs of Warrenby natives.
My great grandfather Benjamin Ayton came to Warrenby from Gissing, Norfolk, about 1873 and worked as a stationary engine driver at the blast furnaces at Warrenby Ironworks. He died of complications due to influenza in 1897. Benjamin married Charlotte Tann who was from Pulham Market, Norfolk at Christ Church, Coatham in 1877 and they lived in James Terrace, Warrenby. They had five children, Edward Ayton, who died from his injuries sustained in the Warrenby Disaster of 14th June 1895;
Susan Ann Ayton born and died in 1878; Bessey Jane Ayton who was born in 1880 and died 1945, she married Frederick Nelmes and they settled in Redcar.
My grandfather George William Ayton was born in 1881 and worked at the Warrenby Ironworks as a locomotive cleaner then fireman. He married Maggie Buxton at Christ Church in 1904. I know that their eldest child Benjamin was born in Warrenby 1905, at Rocket Terrace. Ben worked as a milk roundsman in Redcar and at the Warrenby works in the Second World War, he married Maggie Thomas of Pochin Road Grangetown.
The youngest of the Ayton family was Ethel May Ayton who was born in 1886. She married Charles Henry White from New Marske in 1918.

The photograph is of my grandfather George William as a young man when he would have been living in Warrenby, I don't know who else is on the photo or where it was taken but I would love to know. My grandfather is second from the right, back row.
Regards George Ayton

Michael & Nora Knight 1916

Michael Knight was born in Warrenby in 1891
He married Nora Byrne from Halifax on the 30th of July 1915 by special licence in The Church of The Sacred Heart and St Bernard, Halifax.
The Government released Michael from the army in 1916 to help man the steel works because there was a shortage of man power, Michael and Nora returned to Warrenby where I believe they lived in Wigeon street.

Mary Knight was born in Warrenby in 1917
