Foaming - 525w

I’m forever blowing bubbles .....

Grandchildren “spiking” the water feature at Margaret’s house with bubble-blowing mixture had a wonderful effect!  But Alan and Margaret weren’t “foaming at the mouth!”

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 ......

William Carlisle was charged with having married Fanny Roulsby Sargant on 28th November 1870, when his first wife, Bridget was still alive.  He had married Bridget at Sheffield, on 17th June 1856, but left her after a month or two, and was under the impression that the marriage was not a binding one.  He had seen her frequently, and recently she had been living in the vicinity of Winteringham, where the girl Sargant lived!  He was found guilty of bigamy and sentenced to 2 months imprisonment.

Grand Concert in Temperance Hall

This days' edition of the Hull Packet reported
GRAND CONCERT. - A few evenings ago a most excellent concert of sacred and secular music was given in the New Hall, under the conductorship of Mr J.H. Green, by Dr J.H. Gibson and a numerous party of ladies and gentlemen from Hull.  It is the first time that so many of the choice productions of the great masters have been so well rendered in this neighbourhood.  To particularise any of the performers, where all were so good, would be invidious.  We can only say that the crowded audience was delighted, and that if the same artists honour this place with another visit, they may depend on having a full house and a most hearty welcome.

Light Ship?

Goole shipping arrivals: The "Arthur" arrived from Winteringham, light (i.e. no cargo on board).
