The goal of this project is to find out the people living in Skelmanthorpe and begin to link their lives to their place. Since Skelmanthorpe is a big place I am going to start on one hamlet - Park Gate which had a total of 150 inhabitants and look at their history from 1851 to 1911. Later I will begin to move to Skelmanthorpe as a whole with a population of 3500 in 1881.

Right now this project just has one member, me. I am John Ryden.

Here are some of the tasks that I think need to be done. I'll be working on them, and could use your help.

  • Transcribing the 1881 Census entries for the 3000 people living in Skelmanthorpe in 1881
  • Mapping and studying the physical space they occupied
  • Linking their lives to the events occurring in the village at this time.
