SPROSTONS/SPROSONS - I'm researching
Sproston family history and am particularly interested in Newchapel and area
- if anyone has any Sproston family info, please get in touch with me.
ref the name Sproston,
I asked my dad about his step father whos name was Bill Sproston, who came
from Newchapel/ Harriseahead. My dad said Bill Sproston had a neice called
Fanny Sproston who kept the Harecastle hotel at Kidsgrove. Also to nephews,
Danny Sproston was one of them. They had a footrail (open cast mine)at Apedale..
I will let you have any more info when I call down my dads , my dad is 91,
there is not much he doesnt know about Packmoor and the surrounding areas,
he worked at Black Bull all his life.

Saw your request on the Harriseshead/Newchapel web site. My maiden name was
Sproston and I lived at Sands Rd Harriseahead from1963 t0 1979. We attended
Newchapel church for many years and my Gran lived in Newchapel and Packmoor(also
a Sproston). Please let me know if I can be of any help in your research,
