In reply to Gary Keeling...I remember the Keen family on the corner of Hall Drive. Alan Keen used to sit beside me in class at Moorside Secondary Modern School at Cellarhead between 1958 and 1962, back in the days when boys had to sit with boys and girls had to sit with girls. We had separate girl and boy playgrounds, too. He was a really nice lad of my age, so, if he's still with us, he'll be 66 now.

I was raised in Cookshill Caverswall by my granny and grand dad, name Jack and Elizabeth Shenton, who lived on the corner of Caverswall Lane close to the Auctioneers Arms. I went to St Peters C of E Primary School from around 1952 to 1955, then my family relocated to Weston Coyney, Queens Walk. My parents Betty and Arthur Shenton, with family, emigrated to Australia in 1957. I am really keen to start doing some family connections and to find childhood friends.

Just an update, my grandmothers maiden name from her birth parents was Hill and having spoken to my mother my grandmothers birth mother died during childbirth. My nan and grandad moved into their house in Hall Drive when it was new a few doors up from the Keen or Keene family, another large family in Hall Drive and at the time opposite the new houses was a number of farms which are now all gone. My uncle Raymond Whieldon (now passed away) used to help deliver milk during his childhood for one of the farms across the road. My mum can recall playing in Billy Nuns field off Caverswall Road and doing "doffers" (dares) doing brook jumping etc... Don't know if doffers is a Weston Coyney word but my wife from the Tunstall end of the City has never heard of it until she met me.

Hello great site, lived in Weston Coyney all my childhood life. Lived in The Close, my Grandparents on my mothers birth were the Whieldons from Hall Drive, a large family of 10 children.
My grandad was a miner Alfred Whieldon who passed away in his early 60s many years ago and my Nan Elizabeth May (nee Hopwood) passed away recently. My nan I believe was adopted by her mums sister and her husband (sorry don't know first names) but I am aware that my nan may have grown up in the Forsbrook area. Any info appreciated.

My Grandparents Walter John and Martha Harriet SALT lived at 35 Bright Street Meir for most of their married life. They were married at St Peters Church, Caverswall in 1889 and were buried in the samr grave there when they died in 1950 and 1949 respectively.
There 8 children were also baptised there and so Caverswall has a major place in our family history. Previously 5 generations of the family had lived in Cheadle before my GGrandfather John came to work in the Longton area and lived at Fir Trees Lightwood for many years. My Grandfather was born there. If there is anyone from this Salt line or has knowledge of them or could guide me to any local records that I could see I would be very pleased to hear from them...Great to see what a good local history site you have.
