Jabba's Comments

Jack Milburn was one of three brothers to play for Leeds in the years up to and through the Second World War, but Jack (christened John, and cousin of Newcastle's "Wor Jackie") had the longest career at Leeds. A right back who also appeared on the left, he was known for his powerful place kicks, scoring 9 penalties in one season. He had moved on to Norwich just before the outbreak of war, but returned to the north to guest for Bradford and Darlington as well as playing once again for Leeds in the leagues that operated throughout the hostilities.

He was on the fringes of international recognition, but the closest he got was a European tour in 1934. After the war he moved on to Bradford, for whom he was player-manager. He died in Leeds in 1979.

Tom Charlton says: Jack was my uncle and he used to spend the summer with us now and then. I once asked him why he had no neck!! "heading the ball son" was his reply. The ball in those days being cosiderably heavier than now, especially when wet. His son was also a handy footballer. Jack married my aunt mabel who was the sister of Jimmy who was also a professional footballer.

jack says: hi im just sayin my name is jack milburn 2

Shelley Milburn says: I'm Jack Milburn's grandaughter. Jack was in fact married to Isobella, who was the sister to Jimmy Potts and that handy son of his is my father Alan Milburn.

Craig Milburn says: i didn't see him play but i am related to wor jackie and i am trying to trace the family tree up

Mandy Soulsby says: I'm also related to Jackie Milburn (on my mother's side) and am trying to trace my family tree too!Any similarly related MILBURNs can e-mail me at occulus@mweb.co.za and compare info.

Sylvia (Milburn) Sherriff says: I understand that all the Milburns(spelt with one L) are related. They inter-married with Charltons,(Bobby and Jackie's mother is a Milburn)(My father bore a strong resemblence to Charlton Heston!0.Also to the Darlings(Grace Darling connection)Livingstons, (David connection) and Irvins of South Shields. My ancestor had sailing ships in North Shields and was a close friend of James Knott when he was a young man. My ancestors followed the shipping trade down the coast from Tyneside to Whitby and then to Gt Yarmouth. I lived in the NW as a child. My brother has connections with the NE and was given a CBE we understand for his work in the area. I have lived in Essex for several years. Our main family names are William and John. I hope to send you more details later!
