  People of Interest in Whitby

  Captain James Cook
was born on October 27th 1728 in the village not far from Whitby, called Marston. The Cook family moved
  to Great Ayton, where James went to school. At 17 years of age he was placed with Mr William Sanderson, a shop keeper in the
  coastal village of Staithes . Later, he joined a family from Whitby, the Walker brothers, who owned and sailed ships from the port,
  serving his time apprenticed to the family business. After his apprenticed days, he sailed the family ships, earning his living. Cook
  gave up eventual certain promotion to a Captain within theMerchant Navy Services, taking the step to volunteer for the Royal Navy,
  joining as Able Seaman. He soon rose through the ranks and became a Master, the highest non commissioned postachievable and
  was highly respected by his superiors. Fame awaited Captain James Cook, who went on to circumnavigate the world three times,
  mapping the oceans of the world for the Royal Navy.

  Frank Meadow Sutcliffe 1853 - 1941 A nationally and internationally acclaimed pioneering photographer who helped to develop
  photography as an art form. Sutcliffe worked in Whitby from the mid 1870`s until his death. Most of his photographs for which he is
 
now famous, were taken out of season. They include many of the harbour, fishing boats, children at play and fishermen. Sutcliffe`s
  equipment ranged from the cumbersome brass and mahogany full plate camera, with their wet collodion process of the late
 
nineteenth century, to the hand held bellows type of camera, of this century, using celluloid negatives. The Sutcliffe gallery in
 
Flowergate, Whitby, publish several volumes of his images and can be purchased by the visitor to Whitby.


  Bram Stoker
, born in Dublin in the year 1847 whom became a highly popular member of "Trinity College", where he was also a
  very successful sportsman.  His first working duty was as a civil servant, moving on to become a journalist. However, after seeing
  the actor Henry Irving act on one of his tours of Ireland, Bram Stoker became the manager of the Lyceum in London, shortly after
 
his marriage to Florence in 1876. Bram Stoker remained there throughout his career and it was his careful management, providing
  a contrast to Henry Irving's theatrical excesses, that was probably a major reason for the Lyceum's success. Bram Stoker wrote a
  number of short stories and gothic novels, but surely is remembered for only one, that of his tale of the undead, the blood thirsty
  horror storey of vampires " Dracula ", published in1897.

  Henry Freeman was born in Bridlington, Yorkshire on the 29th of April 1835. In 1855 Freeman moved to Whitby. After spending
  time working as a farm labourer and a brick-maker he turned to a career at sea. February 9th 1861 marked the event that would
  change his life. During a great storm, more than 200 ships were wrecked on the east coast. The RNLI were on duty to rescue those
  in the water. The first rescue was early at 8:30 in the morning. They spotted the crew of the ‘John and Ann’ of Sunderland were in
  distress and they were saved near Sandsend of Whitby. The crew made five launches rescuing crew from five vessels. On the
  sixth launch the lifeboat capsized. These events saw the death of 12 of the 13 crew on board. The only survivor was Henry
  Freeman, the only person wearing a lifejacket on the lifeboat. In 2011, on the 150th anniversary, 100 people attended a service of
  commemoration and remembrance for those who lost their lives at the RNLI lifeboat station. These were men on service, helping
  those at sea. This tragic event is a reminder that even the best swimmers are at high risk in the turbulent sea and it highlights the
  importance of wearing a lifejacket. As we know, Henry Freeman was the only crew member to survive
and he was awarded the
  RNLI Silver Medal.
Frank Meadow Sutcliffe's photo of Henry Freeman in his new cork flotation jacket as a member of the Whitby
  Lifeboat crew when the vessel sank in a mighty storm in 1861 is one of the most powerful images of the 19th Century

Places of Interest to visit when in Whitby

  Whitby Abbey: Every visitor to Whitby sees the great Abbey which dominates the skyline when arriving into the resort. Situated on 
 
the East Cliff of the town and many tourists climb the 199 well worn steps  to take a closer look at the ruins. You can take in a show;
  climb the famous 199 steps; browse in the Captain Cook Museum; take in the Dracula Trail guided tour; walk along the harbour
 
front and watch the deep sea trawlers land their catches or just pick one of the many panoramic views of Whitby, sit and watch the
 
world go by. Whitby is centrally located to visit places up and down the coast, Scarborough; Goathland (home to the TV series
  "Heartbeat"); Grosmont and the Steam Railway; local fishing villages, such as Robin Hoods Bay; Runswick Bay; Staithes and many
  more attractions, not forgetting the lovely North Yorkshire Moorlands and its walks.

  Whitby Museum is a private museum in Whitby, North Yorkshire, England, run by Whitby Literary and Philosophical Society, a
  learned society and registered charity, established in 1823 It is located in Pannett Park. The park is home to Pannett Art Gallery with
  regularly changing displays, and Whitby Museum which houses a stunning variety of collections and artefacts. Visitors can also
  enjoy panoramic views of the town and Whitby Abbey from the museum terrace.

  Old town of Whitby (East side) where its ancient cobbled streets still wind beneath cliffs, dominated by Gothic remains of the
 
Abbey over 1300 years ago. You can sea and smell the character of years gone by, where picturesque red roofed houses nestle
  on the slopes above the salmon river Esk. Whitby is one of Britain's finest coastlines, with cliffs, panoramic bays and safe sandy
  beaches. Whitby has been a port for more than a thousand years and is still a seafarer's town, keeping it`s olde worlde character.

 Streoneshalh,  Whitby Abbey, from which arose Whitby Abbey, was founded in the year 657AD by Oswy, the King of
  Northumbria. Lady Hilda, his daughter, then 44 years of age was appointed the first Abbess and dedicated to St Peter. The ruins of
  the Abbey as seen today, were built over 500 years after the death of Lady Hilda, who later became a Saint and was known by the
  Anglo Saxon name of Hild, meaning "battle".  She was born into the Royal house of Northumbria.


 Whitby Swing Bridge which joins the two communities of the town, East and West of the river Esk together, has been the scene of
  rivalry in the earlier part of this century, where gangs of youths would contest the bridge with " t`other side o` watter dogs ". The
  original bridge was first mentioned in 1351 and used to lie to the South of the present one, roughly aligned with Baxtergate. A block
  of early18th century buildings on the south side was demolished in1975. The present swing bridge was built in 1909 and is
  electrically operated.

  The 199 steps is one of the great climbs in Britain. The 199 stone steps leading up from the old town to East Cliff. The ascent was a
  bit more leisurely than Mina's frantic dash up to rescue her friend Lucy from an awful end in Dracula, the story of undead written by
  Bram Stoker. Stop to take photographs over red pantiled roofs down to the harbour below. St Mary's Church, at the top of the 199
  steps, is an 18th and 19th Century composite delight with a Norman tower, box pews where the faithful could sit down in comfort for
  a long sermon, and the  three tier pulpit and a charcoal boiler.

  Captain James Cook of Whitby
and his wife Grace lived in a cottage in the village of Marton in Cleveland, where he
  worked as a farm labourer. It was here on 27th October 1728, their second son, James Cook  was born, destined to cross the
  oceans of the World and venture further as any man might. As a small boy, the amily moved to Aireyholme Farm, three miles from
  Great Ayton.Thomas Skottowe, the Lord of the Manor of Ayton, who owned the lands on which the Cook family farmed, was a
  benevolent and kindly master caring for his tenants. He had noticed that the second son of the Cook family, was a bright boy called
  James and arranged for him to attend the local village school. It was in Staithes that James first learnt the art of quietly bringing
  a small boat and navigating a passage to the shore in the dark.This was a necessity for the coastal smugglers of the day. James
  Cook`s experience amongst the folk of Staithes fishing community was to be a vital and direct influence in shaping his career. He
  soon found that a shop- keeper`s boy was not the life for him and expressed his feelings to William Sanderson, having the desire to
  go to sea.

   William Sanderson took James to the port of Whitby, where he introduced him to his friend, John Walker, who was a trader, with
 
ships at sea. When James Cook came to take up a post in Whitby, he arrived to a very busy seaport, where ships were being built,
  sail making, rope and cordage skills prevailed in their manufacture, together with all the allied trades that went with these. The
  ancient town and seaport of "Whitby", with its monastic and maritime associations, stretching back to the earliest times, was the very
  port exactly fitted to capture the imagination and foster the ambitions of such a man as James Cook.The "Freelove" on which
  Captain Cook served his first voyage to sea, was about 450 tons in weight. James soon made his mark and came under the
  approving eye of his masters. James helped in the rigging of a new ship being built by the Walker family of Whitby. She was larger
  than the Freelove, being about 600 tons and was named "The Three Brothers" During the winter months, when the weather was
  too severe and the sea too heavy to sail in, the ships underwent the re-rigging, cleaning of the ship`s bottom and general overhaul.
 
James learnt all these skills and they would hold him in good stead on his voyages around the world. At these times of winter, James
 
Cook and other prentice lads staying at the masters house, worked the days on the ships and spent long evenings reading the skills
 
required to be masters of  their own ships.

 ________________________________________________


   
  Captain William Scoresby (senior)
 was born on 3rd May 1760, in the village of Cropton, twenty
  miles south west of Whitby, on a small farming estate called Nutholm. His attendance at school was very spasmodic,
  due partly to the distance from his home plus the adverse weather conditions encountered. At the age of nine his father removed
  him from school to work the farm. At one stage he went to work for some neighbouring farmers, living with them and receiving such
  unpleasant treatment, he resolved not to work in the profession his father wished him to pursue. He came to Whitby in the winter of
  1779 and secured a three year apprenticeship on the ship called "Jane", owned by Mr Chapman, a Quaker. As the ship was laid
  off for the winter period, he returned to his father's farm and studied all he could for his new profession, being particularly interested
  in navigation. On his return he married Mary Smith, the daughter of a yeoman farmer. They had three children, Mary, Sarah and
  William (junior). In the Spring of 1785, he returned to the sea on the Greenland whaler "Henrietta", under Captain Crispin Bean and
  by his sixth voyage had risen to second officer, the "Specksioneer". This title is of Dutch origin and applied to the officer in charge of
  all the fishing apparatus and the principal harpooner. In 1790, Captain Bean informed the ship`s owners that he would shortly be
  retiring and suggested that Scoresby (senior) be his replacement and was appointed the new Captain over the
  protests from the crew.
  On the next voyage Scoresby (senior) experience many mutinous events. The next voyage Scoresby (senior) engaged himself
  upon, he insisted he would pick his crew. His careful choices paid dividends, returning to port having caught eighteen whales, the
  far by biggest catch seen in Whitby. In 1802, Scoresby (senior) was invited to join a partnership of  eight people, to build a new
  Greenland whaler in the town of Whitby. Each share cost £ 1000, two shares being owned by the builders, Fishburn and
  Broderick. Scoresby (senior) took up one share and was paid wages, on a par with those he had been earning on the Dundee.
  The ship was launched on 21st  February 1803 and was named the "Resolution". (not to be confused with the Captain Cook`s
 
Resolution). She sailed on 21st March and on the 18th April she caught her first whale. It was on this voyage William Scoresby
  (junior) then aged 14 years of age was apprenticed. He graduated to mate at the age of 17 and at the age of 21 years, the earliest
  one could take command of a ship, took over the Resolution. William Scoresby (senior) in the year 1870, invented what we call
  today "the crows nest".

Frank Meadow Sutcliffe born at Headingley, Leeds in 1853, set up his own professional photographic
  studio in a dis-used jet workshop along Waterloo Yard, Whitby in 1875 and eventually established himself in more suitable premises
  in Skinner Street, Whitby. Frank Meadow Sutcliffe is probably Whitby's most famous artist.  He became a pioneer in his chosen art
  form - photography. Sutcliffe's equipment was unwieldy and cumbersome. His full plate cameras were constructed from brass and
  mahogany, complete with hand bellows. Sutcliffe worked in
Whitby from the beginning of his career in 1875, using a technique that
  employed wet collodian, but he soon had to move with the times, turning to he use of dry plates. 
  Despite his awkward equipment, Sutcliffe was able to create mages of unsurpassed elegance and sensitivity. His photographs,
  almost all of Whitby and its environs, captured a truth not available to those working with brushes or pencils. ore than any other artist
  of his time Sutcliffe was able to illustrate real life. Unlike a modern photographer who can snap off rolls of film and choose the best
  image, each of Sutcliffe's shots had to be carefully composed. His obvious love of Whitby, Staithes and other nearby villages shines
  through. Sutcliffe retired from photography in 1922 and became curator of the Whitby Literary and Philosophical Society, a
  position he held until his death in 1941. The fact that the local clergy of Whitby 'excommunicated' Sutcliffe for showing this print
  to the corruption of the other 'sex' has at times tended to eclipse the sheer artistic and technical brilliance of this photography.
 
 
During the latter half of the nineteenth century the manufacture of jewellery from locally mined jet was one of Whitby's main
  industries. Situated in Haggersgate and owned by William Wright, this was the only jet workshop equipped with gas-engine
  powered lathes. Today you can still see jet being made in the Jet museum on upper church street near the Duke of York pub
  inside Is all the old tools they used to use.  A Whitby 'cat' aground near Belle Island in the upper harbour. A 'cat' was a boat with a
  flat keel designed for loading and unloading cargo, very often coal, from the beach. The 'Endeavour', the first ship used by Captain
  James Cook on his voyages of discovery, was also a Whitby built 'cat'. Captain James Cook chose this kind of vessel because it
  had a flat bottomed keel and was large enough to hold all he stores for a very long voyage.

Whitby
    


   WHITBY:
with its fish and chip restaurants and takeaways plus the ice cream parlours, the day visitors and holidaymakers all
   enjoying the history and culture of this lively resort. Here we can find vampires and Goths during the season and it’s all on offer in
   Whitby, one of the North East coast’s most visited and best loved seaside town resorts.
   With Blue Flag beaches and many attractions, including the world-famous steam North Yorkshire Moors Railway in Grosmont.
   Whitby is the perfect base for a family holiday. But it doesn’t end there. Whitby wallows in English history, including whaling fleets
   of the Scoresby family. The commercial and leisure fishing industry, the jet making industry. Did you know that it’s still the best place
   in the world to find the gleaming black gemstone that  is created from the monkey puzzle tree and so beloved by the Victorians?
  There is the Captain Cook connection with the Whitby family Walkers who took the young Cook on as a prentice. Cook was born
   nearby to Whitby, in a small villa called Ayton. The famous ship the named Endeavour was Whitby built and circumnavigated
   the world with Captain James Cook. Whitby has also its literary connections to the Dublin born Bram Stoker whose famous book
   of the undead named Dracula features many authored scenes and persons from the town, with the vampire Dracula first coming
   ashore on the beaches of Whitby. The ship was named after the actual ship that perished with all hands on board in a mighty
   storm, named Demeter, a Russian schooner, witnessed by Bram Stoker from his hotel room.
The Demeter in his book attempted to
   shelter from this  mighty storm. on its way from Transylvania and Dracula in the guise of a black dog came ashore and the story
   began. This has inspired the world famous Goth`s and their Festivals which now takes place in Whitby in the spring and the
   other around Halloween. Visitors staying in Whitby are offered a great welcome by their hosts in hotels, bb`s and guesthouses.

Bridlington and Filey

    

 BRIDLINGTON: The family, the foodie, the shopper, the history buff, the culture vulture, the day tripper, there is something for
  everyone in  this East Yorkshire Coast resort of Bridlington. Having elegant award winning promenades, glorious sandy beaches,
  a historic harbour and a fascinating Old Worldly Town  that is packed with quirky shops. Is it any wonder that one of this countries
  greatest artists, namely David Hockney, made Bridlington his home for many years and drew his inspirations from the nearby
  Yorkshire Wolds.

 FILEY: With its glorious sweep of soft, golden sand, Filey beach is one of the best in the country for families – it’s so huge that, no
  matter how busy it gets, it’s never crowded. It’s the perfect place to take a walk, fly a kite, build a sandcastle, snooze in a deckchair,
  or maybe do a spot of birdwatching at Filey Brigg, a peninsula at the northern end of the town. Early spring may find you face to
  face with a snoozing seal on the beach, and in summer porpoise sightings are regular. Then why not follow it up with a trip to the
  much-loved Coble Landing, a slipway with a picturesque jumble of boats and kiosks, for a local cup of Yorkshire tea and the old
  English bacon buttie? The town, too, is full of gentle pleasures, with its Edwardian architecture, quirky shops and intriguing museum.
  And – it’s  official! – Filey boasts the second best B&B in the entire world so say TripAdvisor Travelers’ Choice Awards 2014.

Scarborough

    

 SCARBOROUGH:  Stunning scenery, glorious beaches, loads to do and see – is it any wonder that people have been flocking
  to
Scarborough for nearly 400 years now? Scarborough’s is a story of many ‘firsts’. The town became known as probably the
  world’s  first seaside resort back in the 1600s, when the Victorians believed in health giving properties of the Spa waters were
  discovered. Bathing machines to preserve swimmers’ modesty as they took to the sea were first seen anywhere in the
UK here
  in Scarborough. By the mid-  1800s, with the coming of the railways and the popularity of sea bathing on the rise,
Scarborough was
  the venue for two of the world’s first purpose-built hotels, The Grand and The Crown. But despite its rich history,
Scarborough
  doesn’t live in the  past. The town is constantly innovating to keep its place as one of  the most popular family holiday destinations in
  the UK. Scarborough has many fantastic attractions for the tourist to enjoy. From the historic castle to amusement arcades, to the
  pleasure steamers to the miniature railway. There is the open air theatre to the world famous naval warfare that takes place in
  Peasholm park. North Bay Railway has been a major attraction since 1930`s. Travel the one mile journey from Peasholm park to
  Scalby Mills, past the open air theatre, along the cliff to within yards of the Sealife and Marine center. Peasholm park is one of finest
  public parks in the country and home to the famous Naval Warfare and boating lake. here you will find summer concerts taking place
  and finally the Castle with its 2500 year history in a stunning location.
