REV 222 - 525w

This wonderful James I shilling dates from 1604/5, and was found by a local farmer in one of his fields.  Ken tells us that it’s about the size of an old half-crown, though much thinner, and has a missing “T” which should have come before “NEMO” (bottom pic, about 7 o’clock).  Apparently, although this makes the coins rarer, it wasn’t uncommon to use dies with errors in them.

Our own Marie Celeste!

The sea-going ketch “Aimwell” was built at the yard of Routh and Waddingham on the Haven, and launched in 1883.  Plans of her have appeared in books, and there is a model of her in a Hull museum.  Her name came from a Derby winner, and she shared it with several other boats and ships, some sail, and some steam.

But she shared a fate similar to the Marie Celeste.

In 1919, she had sailed from Newcastle, bound for Goole with sulphur ore, her captain on this occasion missing the trip, and travelling to Goole to meet her there.

However, when the trading steamer Clara on route between Antwerp and Goole came upon her near the Dungeon Lightship, she was sitting low in the water.  The mate and two sailors from the Clara boarded her .... to discover there was no-one on board!  The Clara searched for any sign of the crew over a large distance of sea around the vessel, but found no-one!  She then took the Aimwell in tow, despite the leak in the old ketch, but after 10 or 11 sea-miles the Aimwell suddenly keeled over and sank, leaving the Clara forced to cut the heavy tow rope.


As for the crew of the Aimwell .... we have no idea as to their fate ......

On this Day in Winteringham

Election of Guardians

From the Hull Packet 20th April 1883
The counting of the votes given during the election of Guardians for Scunthorpe and Winteringham, the only two parishes in the Union in which contests have taken place, was completed last week, with the following result: - Scunthorpe, J. Mundey 146, J. H. Dawes 141 (both elected), R. Driffill 89, C. A. Cheesman 64; Winteringham, W. Marshall 47 (elected), Jos. Burkill 38, J. Watkin 14, E. Brumby 16.  The old Guardians were Messrs Mundey and Dawes for Scunthorpe, and Mr Burkill for Winteringham.

Sailing Away

On Monday [April 20th 1885], owing to some not very obvious cause, one of the sails fell off the mill here, bearing with it part of the iron cross.  The day was fine, and at the time of the accident the mill was going slowly.  [Ed: The Mill was converted to an ultra-modern steam-powered roller mill - the most modern for 20 miles around according to one report!]

Vestry Meeting

After various details of collections and sums attributed were made - it being noted that more than half the fund for the sick and the poor had been given to non-conformists, the problem of burial in the churchyard was raised ... space being at a premium.  It was suggested that if the church gave the ground to the parish, then the parish should bear the expense of building a substantial wall round it.  The meeting also carried the following motion unanimously "The Education Bill in its present form should be opposed as unjust to the children of Church people."  [Ed: The bill referred to was one that would have removed the legal obligation to teach RE in schools.  The Bill was defeated, and so it remains a requirement to this day!]
