Ron Creasey Collection

Ron Creasey was born in Hull in 1929, and was evacuated to the village of Sproatley, a few miles outside Hull, at the age of twelve. After school he started doing general farm work at 14, and at the age of 17, in 1946, he was hired at the Hull hiring fair, as a horselad. He worked for two members of the Caley family, for John Caley at Carr Farm, Flinton; and for Norman Caley both at Lane End Farm, Marton, and Old Farm, West Newton. He carried on working with horses until 1960. He then worked as a shepherd in the Cotswolds for a year, before becoming a farm bailiff for FJ Parsons in Sussex, who was involved with breeding polled Sussex cattle.
