Found your various articles fascinating. We lived at Granville House, Chester Road from 1972 to 1999 and have some deeds dating back to the 1800's relating to a parcel of land in Lower Stonnall and Thornes. The names Longmore, W.A. Ellis, James Negus and William Adcock Ellis are shown in these deeds. If they would be of any interest to you we would be happy to let you have them.

I do a lot of hiking and visited Stonnall for the first time in 2009. It was the tree on Grove Hill that caught my attention right away. I have heard rumours of a burial ground under the tree during a war, but have been unable to find any information on this until I found your site. Thank you for a well-researched and informative read.

My gt. grandfather, Frank Turner and his wife, Rebecca, were teachers at the Stonnall school in 1891, they lived in the School House. Their neighbour was Stonnall Farm. Their daughter, Elsie was born here in 1892.Does anyone have any info or photos of them and/or the school?

Hello Joe. I was not aware that the Turner family had lived at the school house. The school has a number of log books which contain its history from its opening in 1874. I am sure details of the Turners will be contained within at least one of them. As for photos of the school, have a look at the centre of the graphic at the top of this page: that is the old school that the Turners would have known. The attached house is situated to the left of the building. To get a closer look, open Memories of Old Stonnall by Gordon Mycock. There is a photo of the Mycock family outside the school house and there is a full width photo of the old school too. If you need any more info, feel free to ask.

Hello again Joe. I think the best thing is for me to write to you directly by email.
