Jo Done was the daughter of the licensee of “The Castle” public house in Ashton under Lyne in the early to mid 1950s. Jo at that time was studying to be a teacher of deaf children at Manchester University. I was also a student, but at a college in London..

Jo, I believe had a boy friend that played in the Saints Jazz Band in Manchester whose name is unknown to me. She may have married him and may now carry his name as her married name.

Several years latter my first son was born deaf and I often would think of Jo and wonder what help and advice she would have given me, but by that time we had lost touch with each other.

Now with both of us in the autumn of our years I would love to hear news of her and maybe say Hi…even possibly exchanging a few of our life experiences.

Any help would be gratefully received, THANK YOU

I've found that a Margaret Josephine Done married Brian Scotson Dixon at Christ Church, Ashton under Lyne in 1956. Could this be her. She could have been known by her middle name.

The Castle Inn was at 34 Scotland Street.

Thank you all for your information. Unfortunately the big question remains, where are they now?
