Howdenshire History

History of Goole, Yorkshire

These pages form a series about the history of Goole drawn from my own archives. I've been writing and teaching about the town's history for over 30 years and have gathered a large amount of information, booklets, maps and pictures about most aspects of Goole's history.

I also provide a professional genealogy research service for Yorkshire and the whole UK, as well as a large collection of Goole old photographs.

I regularly undertake local archive research and can search records based in Goole and elsewhere in Yorkshire on request. Please contact me to inquire further.
