'DADDY' WRIGHTSON

ADDED 16 APRIL 2007

Regarding your article about Knottla Nicknames, featured in the April 2007 issue, I wonder if anyone can remember Mr. Wrightson at Ferrybridge School? I should think that from around World War One, if not before, he had the nickname ‘Daddy Wrightson”. I often wondered why he was called this until I asked an ex-pupil from before my time (1950s) if he knew. He said it was because Mr. Wrightson’s father, who before a strong resemblance to him, was the truant officer, so he was called ‘Daddy’ after him. I thought I would just write and explain in case anyone else wondered.

Also on page 14 of the April issue are some photographs of Ferrybridge School taken in 1955, the top of which shows my mother, Mrs Barker, the class teacher. There is a photograph on page 12 also of Ferrybridge School in the same year, and Paul Hansom is featured in the middle of the back row.
