  2. Cheers @Ovalteeny . I did email Frances Povey, a couple od days ago, attaching the message that John Krzyzanowski had posted in response to Rebecca Wilkzek request and I added into the email a direct link to the football albums you have created within this group and I added :- ' I am no historian or have access written historical data ..............'. I was expecting NCC to get someone to have a look and possibly ask questions. However this is the reply I got back today :- I will add her response to the posting on Bygone Bedlington and see if John Krzyznowski can point her in the right direction within the Northumberland Archies at Woodhorn.
  3. Today
  4. I'm pretty sure that my research into the football teams of Bedlingtonshire from 1946-64(ish) won't be of much help, as I don't have any info regards when teams were formed and started to play at Dr. Pit Park. I'll see if I can can delve into my records and see, but I don't think so.
  5. @QVC - on the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group the following post was shared. Would any info that your hobby- '........................... tracking the history of amateur football clubs in the North East......' have thrown up any info or photos on the history of the Dr Pit Welfare Park be of use to Frances Povey?

  19. Hi Alan, I’m a member of both groups Colin
  20. @Ann Dobson are you a member of the Bygone Bedlington Facebook group? Colin is a member of that group but he isn't a member of this one.
  21. Hi @Canny lass and @Alan Edgar (Eggy1948) . I'm catching up with the posts and so very grateful for the info you have given me so far. I'm really enjoying researching my family history but I don't like to just have the name if you know what I mean, I like to build a picture of moments in time for my ancestors. I will message Colin and also reply to your message @Canny lass Thanks Ann

  24. That should be far left. I edited it but it doesn't seem to have been amended.
  25. Left to right: Nrs. 7, 6, 5 and 4 Netherton Lane today. Nr 7 far right is The Louge (Hairdressers). I had a look at the 1911 census and two dwellings of the five on Netherton Lane were occupied by Douglas (possibly related). There were no numbers then but 5 must have been Douglas House with 4 rooms. Next door, at number 4 (at the far right of the picture) named "Netherton House", lived a 34 yo woman also named Douglas. She gives her civil status as married but is registered as head of the household. She has two children aged 4 and 1 yo. Strangely, she has the smallest family of all occupiers but has the largest house with 5 rooms. Could it be possible that Ann's GG grandfather was a boarder in that house? Boarders weren't unknown, even on Netherton Lane. next door was The Cottage, Netherton Lane also occupied by a female head with 2 teenage grandchildren and 2 boarders - a head teacher and a bank manager.
