The Thurlows, Boulby Barns Farm

The Thurlows, Boulby Barns Farm

This family group was taken in about 1910 at Boulby Barns Farm.  John and Isabel Thurlow are seated, second right and second left, surrounded by their two sons and seven daughters.  Georgina is third from the left, at the back, and the child seated in front is Amy, one of their granddaughters.  Can someone tell us any more about the family and why they have all got together for the photograph?

I now know that the daughters were Mary Ann, Bessie, Lucy Sarah, Barbara, Ada and Georgina.

Anne Codling (great granddaughter of Ada Thurlow) tells us: ”The two sons would be Henry and Christopher. From tracing the family tree, Edwin died in 1881. If this was taken in 1910, this would have been taken the year after my grandfather was born, Edwin (son of Ada and Matthew Codling).” John and Isabel had a third son, Edwin, who had died in 1881.

Diane Crosby-Browne tells us:”Dinah Thurlow born 1802, was at the farm in 1841 census with husband Mark Hall before they moved to Craggs House, Brotton. Dinah’s father was James Thurlow abt 1776 and mother, Isabella Mawson.”
