The Grocer and Draper’s shop you have in your High Burgage photos, used to be my ggg grandfather’s in the late 1830s-early 1840s. He was William Kirk born around 1810 (outside Lincolnshire) and died around 1846 (probably Hull) His wife Ann(Fox) died 1835 and he re-married to Martha Horner. He had a son John born 1833 in Burringham.
Do you have any suggestions as to where I can find more information on William e.g place of birth.

I am interested in anything and everything to do with Mill/Mills in Winteringham and North Lincs. My name is Michael WINN, I am a direct relative of Mary Ann Judge (nee WINN)and her husband Charles Judge.
Mary was indeed born in Blyton, she was baptised on 13th Sept. 1811, and her father Robert Winn built the Mill at Blyton in 1825. She also had a brother Robert Lightfoot and a sister Elizabeth.
Her father Robert also had a brother William, Alkborough Mill, a brother Thomas at Glentham Mill, and a brother John at Tealby Water Mill.
Mary Ann Judge had 7 children, Martha, Robert, Charles, Joseph, William, Mary and Sarah. You will by now have guessed that I am tracing the "WINN" Family Tree.
On my Tree I also have a marriage in Winterton in 1799 between a Sarah Codd and William WINN and a marriage in 1824 between a Mary Naylor and William WINN.
Someone in your article was also interested in Grasby? Robert Winn's father, John Winn married a Mary Grasby in Caenby in 6th Nov.1760, Mary was baptised in Thimbleby in 1723.
Also in the article you stated that in 16th Nov. 1943 Herbert Clayton sold Mill House for £450 on16th Nov 1905, advert for the purchase of fixed machinery and Plant at Winteringham Roller flour Mill. Any more details of the above would be welcome.
If you could send me a copy of your article and any drawings/sketches/photos etc. appertaining to the same and/or any thing on any other Lincs Mills would be greatly appreciated.
It may be Hull City of Culture 2017, but the same year marks Winteringham’s own historic year - 700 years since the charter awarding a market each Wednesday and an annual fair. There is now an accurate translation of the charter, and it is intended to have a calligrapher make a copy to be kept in the parish for posterity! Knights and minstrels are already booked for the event! Keep an eye on this website, or on the special Winteringham Festival website for further details (click here for the Festival website).

Beware of local scams
Rogue trader scam alert over bogus council worker
By Scunthorpe Telegraph | Posted: January 21, 2016
Householders in North Lincolnshire are being warned about cold callers
North Lincolnshire Council says it has been made aware of a rogue trader cold calling homes in the district and falsely claiming to work for the local authority.
The council is urging householders to remain vigilant and not to engage with cold callers who appear at their doors.
This man claims to work for North Lincolnshire Council and shows a fake ID badge.
The badge does not have a photograph, which all council ID badges carry.
He has already visited a number of homes across North Lincolnshire requesting that people pay him to trim back trees or bushes, and if they don’t they will be prosecuted and fined thousands of pounds.
"This is not something the council would do," the local authority said.
"If this man approaches you or if you have been scammed by him, please contact Trading Standards on 01724 297659.
"It is important that people are alert and report anything suspicious or cold callers to the Citizen Advice Consumer Helpline on 03454 040506."
Councillor Neil Poole, cabinet member for neighbourhoods, at North Lincolnshire Council said: “We have received a number of complaints about this rogue trader so we are urging people to be vigilant. It is horrible to think that there are people out there willing to take advantage of good people.
"If you have not requested someone to come to your house, then you should always be cautious about these so-called traders turning up unannounced.
“Remember that a council employee carries photographic ID and any relevant paperwork. If you want to check if a caller works for North Lincolnshire Council, you can ring our customer contact centre on 01724 297000. It is always better to be safe than sorry.”
A woman was texted from “.gov.co.uk” and told that she was due a rebate from NLC. She was given a link and told to provide her bank details. NLC state that they would never contact people by text, and if in doubt, give no details but contact their customer services by phone 01724 297000, or email: email@example.com
