LANDING IN HULL OF FEDERAL RECRUITS. - A fortnight ago there appeared in
our columns a paragraph relating to the landing in this town of about 140
German recruits, en route to North America. These men, it appeared had had
their passage money paid, and had been promised a bounty before leaving
England. On the day of their arrival at Hull they left the North Eastern
station, Paragon Street, for Liverpool, and were about to be shipped from
that town when they refused to go until they had received their bounty
money, and we have not heard whether they have received the promised amount.
Yesterday the screw steamer Harlequin, of this port, Capt. DYSON, arrived in
the Humber from Hamburg, having on board 80 German recruits, in charge, it
is said of Federal Officers, who had been sent over to Hamburg in order to
induce the men to enlist. These men had also had their passage money paid
and been promised a bounty. Each man was supplied with a small bed and
bedding, as well as one or two culinary utensils. On arrival they were
landed on the Corporation Pier, from whence they were marched into the town,
and distributed amongst the various German lodging-houses. We understand
that they will remain in Hull for two or three days.
The next will be the police reports for this paper.
Well here is some more news from the local newspapers,
ACCIDENTS &c. IN HULL.
INQUEST. - An inquest was held on Thursday, at the Windmill Inn, Witham, on
the body of a young child named MARY FARROW, who was accidentally scalded at
the home of her parents in Drypool, on the 4th inst. from the effects of
which she died on Wednesday. A verdict in accordance with the circumstances
A CHILD BURNT TO DEATH. - On Sunday morning, a child, two years of age,
named ELIZABETH STICKNEY, residing with her parents in Porter Street,
received such severe injuries by being burnt that she died on the following
day. On Sunday morning the mother of the child sent her son, a lad of eight
years downstairs to make the fire, and whilst doing so he lighted a candle
on the hearth. The deceased went near it and her nightdress was set on
fire. At an inquest held on Monday afternoon the jury returned a verdict
that the deceased was "accidentally burnt".
FATAL ACCIDENT. - On Monday noon an accident of a shocking character, and
one that terminated fatally, occurred in the iron shipbuilding yard of
Messrs. SAMUELSON and Co. A man named SAMUEL HILTON was engaged in drilling
holes through some of the iron deck beams, when he fell from the framework
of the deck into the hold of a large iron sailing ship. The depth which he
fell would be about seventeen feet, and when picked up by some of the
workmen he was found to be very seriously injured, blood flowing profusely
from his mouth and nostrils. He was at once removed to the Infirmary; but
it was evident to the surgeons of the institution that his injuries were of
a fatal character, and he expired about two o'clock on Tuesday afternoon.
An inquest was held on view of the body in the evening, and a verdict of
"accidental death" was returned.
DEAD BODY OF A CHILD FOUND. - On Wednesday morning the dead body of a full
grown male child was found on the grass amongst the trees in ht e front of
Kingston Square, Beverley Road. The body which was entirely naked, was
conveyed to the station by acting Sergeant WALKINGTON. In the afternoon an
inquest was held at the Station house, before Mr J J THORNEY. - Mr DOSSOR,
the police surgeon, stated that he had made a post mortem examination of the
child, and he had come to the conclusion that the child had lived, and that
it had died from concussion of the brain, but how the concussion was caused
he was unable to say. It might have been accidentally done in the birth, or
it might have been caused by a blow on the head from a stick.. He should
incline to the opinion that it had been caused by the birth. - The jury
returned a verdict in accordance with the medical testimony.
SUDDEN DEATH. - On Monday afternoon a married woman, about thirty years of
age, named MARY BUTTERY, was walking along the Princes Dock walls, when she
was observed to fall down in front of the Rising Sun public house. She was
conveyed into the dram shop by some passers by, and in less than ten minutes
she had ceased to breathe. The body was subsequently identified by EDWARD
BUTTERY, butcher. Emily Street, Hedon Road, as that of his wife. The
deceased was apparently in good health when she left home.
here is a report on the workhouse from the Hull and Eastern Counties Herald,
dated as above.
Presentation of Prizes to the Children:
On New Years Eve, the children at the Workhouse were indulged with their
annual treat, and the prizes won by past and present pupils in the school
were presented to them in the presence of a very large company of ladies and
gentlemen. The Mayor presided and was supported by Governor SYMONS, several
councillors and most of the guardians of the poor for the parishes of Holy
Trinity and St Mary.
The Governor first addressed the meeting. He said that Alderman FOUNTAIN,
who had been for thirty years the Governor of the Workhouse, on retiring,
expressed the wish that the annual distribution of prizes might be
continued. Mr SYMONS them observed that they lived in an age far better
then the former, for it was related in history that in former times poverty
was considered a crime, and court martials were held upon the poor people,
and they were, if found guilty, sent to the nearest gallows. But to come
down to a less distant period-200 years ago-he found that it was not always
a charity hall, for it was founded before the Poor Law Boards of Poor Law
Acts were brought into operation. The workhouse was then called a house of
correction. The Board had in recent times removed the badge of pauperism
from the children, and likewise from the adults, so that none could tell
them from the ordinary person. Little could be done for the old people.
They simply came into the house to seek a shelter and a grave; but as to the
young children-the miniature men and women-the Board thought they could be
the means of improving them, and that they could build them up into a human
wall against pauperism. The guardians had but tone aim, and that was to
send these children forth into the turmoil and trouble of life in such a way
that they would pursue the path of honest industry, so that when they became
old they would be able to retire from their employments and toil without
fear of poverty (loud applauses).
The Mayor said he remembered very well his visit to the house last year, in
his capacity of sheriff, and how very much pleased he was with what he saw
of the children, at the intelligence exhibited by them, and at the
advancement which they showed for their ages. He went away certainly with a
very much better knowledge of what this building was than he had before, and
hence he had very great pleasure in accepting the invitation to take the
post of chairman this evening. Alderman FOUNTAIN had in his day done a
great work in the house, and he felt quite sure all there would readily
admit that he had raised the house to its present satisfactory position. He
was glad that an equally efficient successor had been selected. Last year
he was struck during the distribution of prizes with the intelligence of the
children; their brightness of countenance, and the pleasure exhibited not
only by those who received their prizes but almost by every child. The
expression of countenance was so thoroughly different to what one would have
imagined it top be, that one almost ceased to recognise the children as
paupers. He congratulated the governor and guardians that they had had the
humanity to take the badge of poverty, not only from the children but from
the aged people. They must bear in mind that many of the aged inmates had
been in times past respectable people; that it was often time through
misfortune that they had fallen into their present position, and that it was
the duty of every citizen in the town to make them as comfortable as they
could, so long as the ratepayers pockets were not too severely entrenched
upon. It was not a matter of expense for the inmates to be dressed in
clothing of the customary description rather than the common uniform which
at once stamped them as paupers.
The Rev. GEO. ROBINSON having addressed the meeting, the distribution of
prizes was proceeded with; the Mayor making several presentations.
At the conclusion of the distribution a vote of thanks, was on the motion of
the Governor, accorded to the Mayor for presiding, and the proceedings
closed with the national anthem, given, as all the songs and recitations
were, with great spirit by the children, who appeared to thoroughly enjoy

I am looking for a John Marshall born Abt 1833 in Thornton. He later
married Mary Jane Scaife in Kilham in 1856, and had sons born in Kilham and
Rudston - William, Fred, John, and Scaife. His wife died before 1881, and
the family migrated to Australia in 1886. His father's name was William,
but I do not know his mother's name. Any connections? Can SKS help find
any birth details.

My last CRAVEN was Mercy who married Phillip SMALLWOOD in 1701 at Ebberston
I have the book 'History of Ebberston' and via that have seen the fascinating collection of CRAVEN Wills and Inventories at the Borthwick Institute and the Land Deeds at Hull University relating to the CRAVENS of Crosscliffe in Allerston parish, but I still cannot tie them all together between 1569 and 1701. I think the Civil War and the Commonwealth may to blame.
One interesting item of general interest is that in the Inventory of Christopher CRAVEN of 1716 he was receiving a Pension of £18 p.a. What could this be from? His estate was valued at £518.

A while ago now I visited my parents, who asked if I could remove some things from their loft. One thing I found was a suitcase full of old photographs, books and family papers. I realised they were not my parents things, and they told me they belong to their next door neighbours, both of whom had passed away. To cut a long story short, you can imagine my amazement when piecing the bits of information together that the elderly neighbours whom I had taken Sunday dinners round to, were in fact cousins of mine. Gertrude WYATT, nee FOX, was my thrid cousin twice removed, and my parents had never realised the connection between her and my father in the years they had known them. They had known that she hailed from Scarborough, but nothing about family links. Her husband was Stephen WYATT, born in Newbottle, Northamptonshire.
I would now like to try and reunite the photos etc with any closer relatives than myself who would be interested. Gertrude was the daughter of William Henry FOX, (1866-1934) and Annie TINDALL, 1866-1958, both of Scarborough. She also had a sister, Edith Annie FOX, 1891-1970, who married James Earnest TATE, b. 1889. I believe that Edith and James had a son, Ronald Earnest TATE, who may well still be alive, and would be the closest relative that I am aware of.
Does this family ring any bells for anyone? If anyone has information I would be very grateful. There are some interesting snippets in the papers, including many photographs of Gertrude's missionary work in China, her passport, letters from home, and even notes she wrote to 'Dear Lord', asking for financial help to get her to China, if it was 'His will.'
