WELCOME TO OUR VILLAGE . Here you will find information on its history and its people.
A query to the readers
Has anyone any information on ‘the cottage’ on the high street opposite the Methodist church? A head master of Thurlby school used to live there but wondered if anyone knows its origins or past owners.
There are now 794 Thurlby and Northorpe photos uploaded to Flickr
The link is https://www.flickr.com/photos/marytrumble/
I have done this as if I had uploaded to this website they do not show information needed to identify them, and to fill in for each photo would take me weeks!!!
If you hover over the photo it will give you a reference number this relates to the file Thurlby photos _ indexed by board number and Thurlby photos _indexed by surname.
The photos are those held on physical boards and computer files the majority are photos collected and donated by Mr Lou Sommerfield and also photos collected by myself, kindly donated to the collection.
I have an album of photos collected by Lou Sommerfield of all Lincolnshire Churches if you are looking for a particular church I can send a copy by email – please use contact form.
If you have any problems please get in touch. – ENJOY

The bridegroom is the gentleman sitting to her left, with the moustache, John Richard Brutnell. The lady standing between the bride and groom is Florence Gorgina Brutnell, sister to the groom. The gentleman in front of the window in the bowler hat, is father of the groom Charles Brutnell and to his right is mother to the groom Joanna Brutnell. Thank you to David Stevenson for this information. The wedding took place in 1899.
