WHAT IS THIS A RUIN OF??? Does having arched 'perpendicular' windows, and a small square tower, which also has arched windows, indicate that it might have been a church? N.B:-There is another picture on Leodis, entitled Thorpe Stapleton, Ruin. Have a look at 200296_13686770.

Food for thought Graham… maybe a starting point for you to dig from!. It is written that around the end of the 12th century Sir Robert Stapleton was given a license by the Knight Templars at their chapter in London, to build a chapel in Thorpe Stapleton and to establish a Chantry there reserving all offerings to the Mother Church at Whitkirk. There is mention that the population of Thorpe Stapleton was 15, and in the Doomsday Book Census a population of 25. Hope you are able to expand on this… Regards Peter.

Some of the scraps of paper left by my ancestors mention the Cloughs of Thorp Stapleton. Can anyone shed any light on this family; especially during the period between 1780 and 1850. Also, I am still looking for information on my Great grandfasther...Alexander Pugmore Clough who immigrated to the USA in and about 1840. Thank you, David William Clough
