Geography: Thornaby

Key points of interest in Thornaby-on-Tees, North Yorkshire, England. Around AD 800 Halfdene (Halfdan Ragnarsson), King of the Danes, gave the land surrounding present-day Thornaby-on-Tees to Thormod, a member of the royal court, resulting in it becoming known as ‘Thormods-by’, meaning the farmstead belonging to Thormod (“Thornaby-on-Tees”, [s.d.]). QUOTATION Grace Pace, who later gave birth to the intrepid explorer Captain James Cook, as well as to six other children, was born in 1692 in Thornaby-on-Tees. Her marriage to the Scottish-born James Cook was marked by an itinerant lifestyle, with her husband moving about the area to find employment on estate farms. Consequently, it is thought that “... James [Cook] must have been reared under conditions which may well have contributed to the remarkable stamina and self-denial which he exhibited, when necessary, throughout his explorations” (Cook, 1971:9). SOURCES Cook, James. 1971. The explorations of Captain James Cook in the Pacific as told by selections of his own journals 1768–1779. G. Price (Ed.). Mineola, NY: Dover Publications. “Thornaby-on-Tees”. [s.d.]. Wikipedia. Available: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thornaby-on-Tees [2012, June 30]. Enjoy this puzzle?
