CommentsGift of Miss A Gurnhill cost 32.18.8. Samuel George Gurnhill was born in 1870. The trough was possibly commissioned by his aunt Ann after his death. His father, Samuel Gurnhill had a farm on Church Lane Dinnington in 1891 when he was 59 years old and originated from Gringley on the Hill, Gainsborough where Samuel George was born. Samuel George married Gertrude Rollitt from Letwell in 1905. Samuel George died in 1913 aged 44 years. The trough used to stand in Falcon Square and may have gone to a farmyard before being re-sited in Coronation Park.
