The Great Great Grandad of Bryan HOGGARTH and others, Lawrence John HOGGARTH was generally referred to as John. He was the last son of John HOGGARTH & Esther FRANK and was baptised 18th August 1829 at Egton.

As a child at Newbiggin, he must have watched the construction of the Whitby to Pickering Railway, which was built along the river less than half a mile across the fields from Newbiggin.  The railway was started in 1833 and opened in 1836.  On 20 Mar 1852, in the Parish Church at Whitby, he married Elizabeth ALLIN, the second daughter of Danvers ALLIN of Fryup.  They initially farmed a few acres at Newholm and later moved into Whitby (Bakers Yard) where LJ was a cartman until he died.  The newspaper reporting his death had, on its front page, news of the relief of Mafeking, so maybe he had had a few celebratory pints before his fatal accident.  Elizabeth died in 1878 and he then married Mary PINDER. There were no children from the second marriage.  Among LJ's children were:  Mary - who married Robert GARBUTT and hence Ray LYTLE. Allin - and hence Mary YOUNG (nee LEWIS), Bryan, Dave and Doug HOGGARTH and Ian KEELER. John - and hence Ivan HOGGARTH
