Glad to find your web page on Goole. And I'm interested. My mother's side of the family were 'Goolies' - all Depledge by name, most of them seafaring men. Great Grandad captained the Blythe at the turn of the century and died in 1930 at 95 years old in Bradford, while living with us. I was 5 at the Time.

I've lived in Northern California since 1959, but spent many happy hours in Goole visiting relatives and listening to all the seagoing stories. I'll keep following your page as you add more info.
