Dear Alison thank you very much for your information regarding the Gilthorpes. It is very comprehensive and interesting. My mother (Helen) is currently visiting us and she has enjoyed reading you E mail. I have little to add but with no dates. Enid has information about a Gilthorpe who was deported to Australia. There was also a Gilthorpe who registers on the internet (Yahoo)who was secretary of Boilermakers Union in Chicago. There is also a Gilthorpe who played for the Chicago Cubs at Baseball.
In 1940s my father met up with a Gilthorpe who ran a market garden near Dublin.
Around 1980 my brother's wife was contacted by a Gillthorpe (living near Penrith Cumbria )who spelled his name with two 'ls'. He was in his 70s and had been brought up in an orphanage. In the past (1980s) I have been contacted by a Mrs Bos who lived in Lincolnshire but had been a Gilthorpe.
Many thaks again and I hope that I can find more information about the Gilthorpes
I will forward your Email to Jim and Enid In Chesterfield. Do you live in the Chesterfield area ?
Ypurs Bill Gilthorpe
