Whitby People Photographs – The Locals

Over the years Whitby has had many characters. Many of the older faces have now gone and sadly there appears to be no photographs of them on the internet. This is my page dedicated to the People of Whitby today.

    Ill try get some women shots for you. I wonder if the likes Of Dorothy Clegg And Sandra Turner would agree to being shot (in a strictly photographic sense) for Real Whitby.

    I live near Leeds and I have always loved Whitby. After starting family history research I was really surprised to find I have a link with Whitby/Lythe /Barnby going back to 1612.

    I am interested to hear from anyone with links to the Stonehouse or Eden family.Especialy descendants of Philip Stonehouse born in Whitby in 1764

    Cheers Ray Starling

    Despite several years of telling the Real Whitby site my name is Fritz Fitton, My photos on your site are still ascribed to “Franz Fritton”. This is unacceptable. My lawyers here in Australia are about to sue you if this is not changed. You have been warned. It will be costly to you if you do not immediately rectify this problem.
