Goole People: Well-known Figures From Goole's History

These pages include information about a wide range of people who have all, in their own way, made their contribution to the history of Goole. Members of the WEA Goole Local History Class have gathered a wealth of material about a variety of Goole people from the last few centuries.

We have carried out interviews, searched old newspapers and conducted genealogical research into Goole families. The findings have been preserved in a scrapbook of "Goole Worthies", from which the following accounts are taken. If you would like to comment on any of the people described, please do get in touch.

Further material has also been kindly provided by the editor of The Norseman, the interesting and informative magazine of the Boothferry Family and Local History Group.


The alphabetical links below provide a more detailed account of each of these "Goole Worthies".
