I've had a query – you can see it in the comments to A History Walk round Hutton Rudby – about Mary Temple of Ebenezer Place and William Robson Temple, who lived in the village until his death in 1911.
I notice that his death was reported in one of the Leeds newspapers on 23 June:-
Leeds Mercury, Friday 23 June 1911
TEMPLE – June 20th, at Hill House, Hutton Rudby, aged 50 years, WILLIAM ROBSON TEMPLE, son of the late William and Ellen Temple, Raskelf, and nephew of the late Geo. Robson, Shires House, Easingwold. (Will be interred at Rudby Church to-day (Friday). Friends please accept this (the only) intimation.)
(I can't help but think that friends living in the areas served by the Leeds Mercury might have found it quite tricky to get to Rudby church for Mr Temple's funeral given the short notice – and when was the service going to be held?)
Anybody with any information about Mary or William Robson Temple, please let me know!
Somebody left a comment on the same page of the blog some time ago asking about a John Graham who was a farmer at Home Hill Farm in the early 'fifties. In case whoever it was is searching again:
I did reply to your query in another comment on the same page, but you'd have to have checked back with the comments section to find it. In case you missed the reply and you're searching for John Graham again, here it is:
I didn't recognise the name Home Hill Farm so I've checked with a friend who has spoken to one of the oldest farmers of the district – he didn't recognise either the name of the farm or the farmer. Where did you think Home Hill Farm was, exactly?
Anybody with any information on John Graham, do contact me.
