The Farndales of Charltons


Many of the family from the Tidkinhow Line attended school at Charltons.


John Farndale (FAR00880) (born 1922) lived at Charltons.


From a discussion with Alfred Farndale (FAR00683): "I remember going to school at Charltons near Tidkinhow. We then went to Standard 1 at Boosbeck. We stayed there until we were 14. It was a two mile walk each day. The headmaster was Mr Ranson. I remember Jim, my elder brother catching me fishing and playing truant. He just said "Get in" (he was in a pony and trap) and he took me to a days marketing at Stokesley. I remember the second masters name was Ackroyd. I got a fork through my leg and he sucked it out. We were always inspected as we arrived at school. We had to walk passed the Bainbridge place and people used to say that he had more sheep on the moor than he was allowed. I remember William looking after me at mother's funeral. I was crying and very upset.




The village was named after Thomas Charlton who built the cottages for the miners at his Slapewath ironstone mine around 1870.
