    My maternal gt.grandparents, William and Mary Armstrong, lived at 71 High Street with two of their daughters, Louisa and Emma Jane. They were there from at least 1871 when they moved from 2 Woods Yard, East Terrace. William an ex Royal Artillery soldier,and now Ironstone Miner, was Verger of All Saints Church. Two of William and Mary’s daughters, Harriet and Emma Jane, became school teachers. Emma Jane teaching at Stanghow Lane School.
