Aunt Dolly Robson Collection

This is a small collection of memorabilia found amongst my late Aunt Dolly’s things when she passed away a few years ago. Of particular interest is the item regarding the Globe Theatre, a topical subject at the moment. The Parish Church cover is a record of the church from 1235-1950 compiled by The Reverend R T Heselton dated May 1979. My Aunt Dolly Robson spent many years in service and I include a few letters of reference from some of her former employers. I thank my brother Harry who is the holder of these and many other items from what he calls the Robson collection.

    • Derek, I think that the vicar has started at 1235 as that was the year that Stockton had its first church. A chapel-of-ease was built and dedicated to St. Thomas a Becket. I think that in those days the town fell within the parish of Norton, and it was not until 1713 that Stockton became a parish.
