Ada Codling (nee Thurlow)

This photograph was taken in 1912 or 1913 at Boulby Barns. Ada is pictured with her three sons (little boys wore dresses then). Billy is standing; Ada is holding Teddy (Edwin) and Francis Georgina (Cissy) is sitting in the wonderful pushchair. Carole Armsby tells us: “I think Ada Codling knew my parent Ernie Armsby and Mavis who used to be Coverdale.” Anne Codling told the Archive : “I think Henry was born in 1912, so it must have been taken then.” Whilst Mary Atkinson advised: “The child in the pram is not Henry. It is Francis Georgina (Cissy).”

Georgina and Tom Codling

This picture was taken at the front door of Boulby Barns, about 1927; Georgina (nee Thurlow) has their daughter, Isabel, on her knee.  Their son, Denis seems reluctant to have his photograph taken and has turned away from the camera.

Bozz Halliday advises: “This picture is of my great uncle Tom. He is my grandmothers brother. My grandmother was Greta Codling and my mothers maiden name is Lena Dowson.”

Tom and Georgina Codling

Mike Codling got in touch with us from Australia back in April.  He asked about Ada and Georgina Thurlow in a comment on their picture and then kindly sent these photographs.  Tom and Georgina were his grandparents.  This is a picture of them in the front garden of their Glenfield Terrace house, with their daughter Isabel and elder son Thomas Raymond (Ray); Mike’s father.  In 1959 Ray Codling and his wife and three daughters emigrated to Australia and settled in Brisbane; Mike was born there three years later.

Dated about 1930 this image of Amy Thurlow was believed to have been taken at the entrance to Easington Church. Kim Lindley has advised: “Possibly at the entrance to All Saints church, Easington.”

Amy Thurlow.

About 1930 at an unknown location (but possibly in the garden of Boulby Barns Farm) with Bessie on the left and the right Amy. Anne Hindmarsh asked: “Would Amy be Bessie Andersons’s sister they were both Thurlows?” Janet Wilson advised: “I think that the lady on the left is Bessie Anderson (nee Thurlow) who was Amy’s mother.”
