North Skelton Mine

Nice dog with it’s owner, now known to be Thomas Ranson who was the Manager at North Skelton ironstone mine in the late 1800’s. Mr Ranson has often been wrongly identified as Mr Brown at North Skelton mine. The 1891 Census lists Thomas Ranson as Manager with his son Robert as a Deputy Overman, the whole Ranson family (ten in total) lived at numbers 1 and 2 Bolckow Street, North Skelton; by the 1901 and 1911 Census the family had moved to 1 Vaughan Street.
