I think the village always feels quaint and classic of the type that seems to be found at the bottom of a hill. having first cycled through the village when on the way to visit my dad working in the signalbox in 1983, i now travel to work in the same signalbox on Scotch Springs lane since 2004 and i always love to drive through the village to and from work.

Hi John,

Many thanks for this information and photographs, they are amazing. I don't know the significance of the flagstaff, but I'll ask around.

The dropbox contains a 1904 photo of Stainton Manor maids (Eliza CHAMPION, Lottie GRINDLEY, & Lizzie JACKSON) with Margery, youngest child of C D Nicholson, tenant 1881 to 1912, a pair of 1961 photos of the Manor farm (before the manor house was demolished) & St Winifreds showing a flagstaff also evident in the 1892 survey. What is the significance of the flagstaff? Email me if dropbox does not work.

Hi Bernie,


Sadly this is not the same Stainton. We are a village near Doncaster in South Yorkshire. Perrin Waite lived in Stainton Hall, in a village called Little Stainton, near Bank Newton. The nearest town is Skipton in North Yorkshire. If you have access to Google Earth, put in Stainton Hall, Bank Newton and it will show it. Beautiful place. Good luck with your research

Hi Bernie,

I've not heard this name and it doesn't appear in the village history. However I will check around. If the entry says 248 acres then it must have been a farm. We have 4 farms in the village. Does the cencus show their address.

Hi, I am looking for any information on Perrin Waite , Census 1881 shows aged 50 with wife Maragret (248 acres) . I am a descendant  of Margaret and would be happy for any information on the family at that time.
