red mail Laws family
Looking for information about the Laws family who lived in Chopwell at one time- I know about Anthony Laws who was born 1879 at Spen County Durham, and in the 1891 census is listed as living at 23 Chopwell Cottages, Garesfield, Chopwell, with his mother Sarah (a widow), his sisters Margaret, Hannah and Sarah, and brother John, plus a lodger called William Laws who is also, I believe, a relative. John & William are coal miners. I'm trying to solve a family mystery about Laws family connections. I believe that the above Anthony is related to my great great grandfather Anthony Laws, shoemaker, born 1820, died 1860- perhaps a grandson.

red mail George Foster / Chopwell Hotel
Can anyone help me or can you remember back in June 1948 there was a presention held at the Chopwell Hotel for the News Of The World Darts play off's. My grandfather George was one of the runners up that was given some sort of bronze medal. There was a photograph taken of the team and it went into a newspaper. I have tried many avenue's and have come to a stand still. It's a bit of a long shot i know being 62yrs ago. My grandfather George & grandmother Doreen Foster lived at Braod Oak Terrace in Chopwell all their lives until there deaths in the 80's & 90's. With Chopwell not being a very large place I am hoping there will be someone out there that can help me or are you related to someone that might have been on the same darts team, and could shred any light to were i can look next.
