  1. My posting on this photo is more to do with the time it was taken, many of the old parts of Stockton Housewife lane/ThistleGreen/Cherry lane still had many years to go before being demolished in the late 1920s or so. In the areas mentioned lived many an Irish family as in other parts of Stockton, my g g grandparents James & Mary Ann Casey lived in this area. James was born in Co Monaghan Ireland. It was on Picture Stockton one day I came across a posting, can’t remember what it was about but it mentioned a family called Comaskey (its spelt many ways). I’m hoping one of the many people who love this site can tell me if any Comaskey families still live in and around the Stockton area, they had very close ties to my early Casey family – my g g g g grandmother was Bridget Comaskey. It seems wherever a Casey was in early times either in Scotland or in England a Comaskey was nearby, hoping some one can help.

  3. I love looking at all the old pics of Stockton and here is one with some of my family members in it. Great pic! I would also like to get back in touch with my nanna, Ann McInteer, as we lost touch years ago – especially as I am now working on the family tree. The Picture Stockton Team have my email address.

  4. I am the daughter of Jessie Mcinteer, the lady wearing the shawl is my grt grandmother, the boy is Robert, brother of Jack and Jessie Mcnaughton, my great grandfather was a fisherman and sailmaker. His fishing boat, named NorStar, was anchored at Seaton Carew till it was sold during the first world war. My father, Hugh Mcinteer, had a rowing boat on the River Tees and bought an outbourd engine for it but all small boats on the river had to be scuppered in WW2 to prevent the Germans getting up the river into England. The monument in the background was where people stood to be hired for work. Not sure if the girl sitting on steps is Jessie, my mother – was not born till 1911, postcard circa 1902.

  5. This picture shows my uncle Bob (Robert) McNaughton, he is on the left of the picture. My mother, Jessie Mcinteer, is sitting on the steps of the monument at the back where the ladies toilets used to be in Stockton High Street (cannot remember what the monument was for). The lady in the shawl at the stall in my great grandmother. The picture used to be on display in Preston Park but it has now been taken down. My father had a fishing boat, used to keep it at Greatham Creek dont know if this was how he got the fish.

  8. Susan Cobb. I am trying to trace my family and came across your entry. My fathers name was Robert Earnest McNaughton and grandfather was Alfred. Do you have any more information on the McNaughtons?

  9. I would just like to verify that my Great Aunt donated the picture to the museum many years ago. The young boy in the picture was my grandad, Robert Henry McNaughton, who was born in 1908. I have been told that one of the ladies on the stall was his mother but I am unsure which one. If anyone remembers my grandad or his family it would be much appreciated.

  10. If you look between the two stalls (from the left two ladies standing the stall on the stall on the right one lady standing) In between them is a lady who looks to be black. Does anyone have any information about this lady as I think she may be my great grandmother Mary Hope maiden name Mary Harris. Any information about this lady or her son Thomas Henry Hope would be appreciated.

  11. The picture is of the Robson family who were salmon fishermen. The child is my fathers uncle George Robson b1887. The large lady to the left is quite possibly my gtgrandmother – I can see an unmistakable likeness to my father.
