"The Ingathering"
Taken around 1895 at Four Lane Ends Farm, Whitby.
A niece of Sutcliffe’s recalled that . . . “when her father retired from the sea in 1917 he bought this farm and in those days it still looked the same as in Uncle Frank’s photograph. An old woman, Nancy Boanas, who had lived there told him that the farm used to be a tollgate and that her grandmother, when a young girl, had helped open the gate one stormy night to Bonnie Prince Charlie. However, I do believe it was the ill-fated Lord George Murray who was caught in Whitby and hanged in York.”
