Resulting in one Mayor of South Tyneside
Thanks for the input "justpassing" Great stuff.

1967 was Harry Duggan. Really nice man who I used to play snooker with. Not in 1967 though as I was too young.

Think Fisherman knew him better than me and may even get some photos of the man.
I remember Mrs Trainer. (1950) She lived in Etal Crescent and I used to go with a cousin to collect her Mission Box. (Do they still have those boxes?)
Cheers for the list of Jarrow Mayors JP, I was told months ago that one of my relatives had been a Mayor in Jarrow.
I asked the family but no one had any info...now that I can see the list I know for sure that not one of our 'Scanlon' branch is included.

Maybe the relative just worked at the Town Hall..its another mystery to solve at a later date......Coolcheers Cait
I thought I remembered a shop called Scanlon's in Ormonde Street
But I just remembered it was called Hanlon's ..................
Cheers for posting the info JP, we have a list similar and it makes good reading...SmileCait
My uncle was George Goldsbrough, Mayor of Jarrow in 1970, are there any family members out there. We lived down in Hertfordshire and lost contact with most of the Goldsbrough side of the family apart from Isobel.

My Dad was Norman, brother of George, and my Mum was Elsie. It would be lovely to hear from anyone who knows my family.

Lord Don Dixon must of known him (Mayor after him)
Councillor Maisie Stewart must of known him (next Mayor)
She is still a Councillor today.
