Thomas Glassey

Doing a bit of research on the terraces between Bedlington and Bedlington Stn. today and I found this Australian site that mentions a Thomas Glassey who once lived, worked and was politically active in Bedlington. Has anybody ever heard of him? Could ‘Glassey Terrace’ be named after him?

Brian Cross, have you ever heard of him down under?

Well I never knew that. 

Ok if I use your research on the Bedlington remembered Facebook group and see if any member knows this?

Thanks Andy. I must have missed that thread. It doesn't ring any bells.

I've never heard of this man but he sounds like somebody I'd like to sit down to dinner with for a good natter.

Of course you can! You know my views on shared knowledge.

It's not. This was Tony's comments on Facebook when a question was asked about When The Prince of Wales theater opened on the Glebe Bank :-

Thomas Glassey seems to have worked very hard for the good of Bedlington. It would be nice to see him added to our timeline, possibly in connection with 'fresh water to Bedlington' or the formation of the Miner's Assosciation two big steps forward in our history. Malcolm, could you ask John Krzyzanowski if we can use his text on the timeline?

Canny lass,   John works in archives and publishes just about everything that comes up in connection with Bedlington. 

 

This one is taken from  "Some men, Murders and Mysteries of Old Bedlington" by Evan Martin.

    • Bedlington darts ace Chris Dobey reached his first ever European Tour final on Sunday to all but secure his place in next month's World Matchplay.
      Dobey was beaten 8-3 by Dave Chisnall in the final of the Danish Darts Open at Copenhagen's Brondby Hallen but enjoyed a superb run over the three-day competition.
      The 29-year-old saw off Steve West, Ricky Evans, former World Championship finalist Kirk Shepherd, and Jose de Sousa before beating two-time major champion Gerwyn Price in the semi-finals to reach his first big-stage final.
      'Hollywood' ran out of steam in the final, though, and despite taking a 2-0 lead, he won just one of the next nine legs as Chisnall secured his first European Tour title since 2013.
      Dobey's run over the weekend now means he is all but assured of a World Matchplay debut next month, following on from his debut in the Premier League earlier this year.
      The World Matchplay is widely considered the second most prestigious major in the darts calendar after the World Championships and after narrowly missing out on qualification for each of the last two years Dobey is delighted he has secured a long overdue debut in the competion.
