    NB: Dawdon Field House was a farm house which somehow was able to cope with seven families living in it. Today it still stands and is known as Dawdon Hill Farm. It is just across the small dene (Dawdon Field Dene) from the site of the former Dawdon Colliery. Like some of the other outlying farms it is probably vey old and almost certainly far older than Seaham Hall (1792). Dawdon Field House in fact has as good a claim as any to be the oldest continuously inhabited building in Greater Seaham. It has seen some noisy and dirty neighbours come and go - the Blastfurnace, the Chemical Works, the Bottleworks, the Gasworks, Watson Town and Dawdon Colliery, and it has seen them all off. Once more and perhaps for good it now overlooks only fields to the south.

    NB: At first the below Pilot Terrace was intended exclusively for those of that profession but as we can see in later censuses this did not last long. The Pilot houses were both humble and primitive. The pilots however were very well paid and were regarded almost as princes among their fellow citizens. When better class houses went up they soon abandoned the Terrace to others less choosy than themselves. Lord Londonderry recruited experienced pilots from up and down the coast but South Shields and Sunderland were the biggest providers. The most famous pilot families to emerge in Seaham were the Ellemor(e)s/Elemores, Applebys, Dobsons, Marshalls, Millers and Scotts. Again and again you will come across those surnames in this census. Three Applebys and three Dobsons were drowned in the carrying out of their duty but countless lives were saved by them and their colleagues in their other role of lifeboatmen. In the first century of Seaham Harbour’s existence the pilots were very important people indeed and the town owes a debt of gratitude to them.

    Mary Maugham, 95, Pauper, N

    NB: According to Pigots Trade Directory for 1834 the above William Henshell (or Henzell) was the first landlord of the Wellington Inn in South Railway Street. He then turned his attention to shipbuilding. You can hear more of him in later censuses.

    NB: The above Mary Maughan was the oldest person in Greater Seaham in the census of 1841. If she was right about her age then she was born in about 1746, the year of Culloden, the last battle fought on British soil. She would already have been about 79 when the Stockton & Darlington Railway opened in 1825, the event which ushered in the Age of the Machine. What changes she would have seen in her lifetime!

    Sarah Barrit (?), 28, Farm Lab, N

    NB: Adolphus (1825-62) was the second son of the 3rd. Marquess of Londonderry and Frances Anne Vane Tempest. The street named after him was initially very small and would remain so for another couple of decades. Twenty years after this census it still contained only 5 families. Between 1861 and 1891 it expanded westwards and eventually totalled 68 houses. In 1841 it was on the very edge of the new town.

    =============================
    Thomas Cumming, 20, Customs Officer
    NB: According to Pigots Trade Directory for 1834 Thomas Chilton was the landlord of the Windmill at Seaham. This may have been the Mill Inn or the original name of the Braddyll Arms before 1834 when the below Colonel Braddyll had not yet completed his railway from South Hetton Colliery to Seaham Harbour. The mineral line ran right past the pub.
    NB: Colonel Thomas Richmond Gale Braddyll of Haswell (and Ulverston, Lancs.) was the proprietor of South Hetton and Murton collieries. He financed the Braddyll Railway (the South Hetton line), constructed from 1831 to 1833, which linked his pits with Seaham Harbour and which went past this public house. Another public house, the Braddyll Arms at Cold Hesledon, was also named after him. Braddyll went bankrupt in 1846 and some of his holdings were taken over by the Pemberton family who had previously owned Monkwearmouth (Pemberton Main) Colliery. They renamed the pub at Cold Hesledon which became firstly the Cold Hesledon Inn and then the Pemberton Arms. It still stands today and is sometimes called the White House. The pub in Seaham was demolished in the 1960s. Colonel Braddyll also owned Conishead Priory near Ulverston in Lancashire. Long after his death this house was taken over by the Miner’s union and became a convalescent home for their sick and injured members.

    Dorothy Paxton, 20

    NB: The above John Pruddah , aged 10, was in fact John Seaham Prudhoe, the first child to be born in the new town of Seaham Harbour in 1828, mentioned by Tom MacNee in ‘Seaham - the first 100 years’. Wood Cottages apparently stood on Terrace Green opposite the Lord Seaham. They were later removed and placed at the top of Pilot Terrace. In the 1851 census they are called Marquess Cottages but they have gone by the 1861 census, probably merged by the enumerators with ‘Wood Houses’.

    NB: The Rogerson family seem to stay put in Wood Cottages for the next 50 years at least, despite a change in location and changes of name to first Marquess Cottages and then Wood Houses. They can be found there in every census up to 1891.

    NB: Named after the Vane ancestors of Frances Anne this pub was demolished in the 1960s. The site is still empty. In this 1841 census the enumerator included it as part of South Crescent - later it would be regarded as being the bottom house in the north side of Church Street, number 74.

    NB: Named after the 3rd. Marquess the Londonderry Arms (picture above)was the first house begun in the new town of Seaham Harbour. It is now called ‘Sylvia’s’. As the nearest pub to the harbour it soon became known as a house of ill-repute. Six generations and 167 years later it still has that reputation, perhaps unfairly.

    NB: Cross Street disappears after this census. It may have been renamed Green Street in 1860 in honour of Sam Green, first manager of the Londonderry Seaham & Sunderland Railway, who succeeded in getting himself run over and killed by one of his own trains.

    Jane M, 1
    NB: A ‘trimmer’ had an horrendous job. He was employed at the docks in the extremely heavy task of getting the coal from wagons into boats. Sometimes this could be done cleanly and effortlessly with the use of chutes and gravity but more often the coal simply piled up beneath the hatch and did not reach into the corners of the hold of the boat. The trimmers then had to get down into the hold of the ship and make sure that coal reached into the corners. They did this by either using moveable steel plates to direct the coal to the desired spot (difficult to describe without a diagram) or by manually shovelling it into the corners as fast as it poured in from above. Backbreaking work and all done in complete darkness ! And of course a trimmer suffered as much from ‘the dust’ as any miner and got home from work just as filthy and exhausted. Trimming was part of the job of dockers at Seaham Harbour until the 1980s.

    NB: Dawdon (or Dalden) Hall (see picture above), which stood next to Dalden Towers, was described as ‘decrepit’ some 60 years before this census. Sir Ralph Milbanke, lord of the manor, rejected it and preferred to live in ‘The Cottage’ when he came to live in Seaham in c.1778. ‘The Cottage’ was demolished in 1792 to make way for Seaham Hall. As you can see four families were living in Dawdon Hall in 1841. It had three families in 1851 but was abandoned as a habitation by the time of the 1861 census.

    NB: Dean (or Dene) House Farm stood on the site of the modern Telephone Exchange and above what became Seaham Co-op. It definitely predated the rest of the town of Seaham Harbour. When the Rainton and Seaham Railway was constucted the farm was cut off from its fields and with the dene to the rear there was no exit. A bridge (which still exists)was thrown across the Rainton & Seaham Railway to give access to the fields to the south. Eventually the Marlborough area was developed as was the area between the farm and Henry Street and Dene House Farm became an agricultural oasis in the middle of the heavily industrialised town. It was demolished in the 1950s.

    NB: Garden House later became a pub, ‘Adam & Eve’s Gardens’. In the 1960s Mr. C. A. Smith wrote a number of articles about Seaham in the Sunderland Echo and in one of them he mentions an interesting story about the Fair family: Ralph Fair’s elder brother emigrated to the United States and did extremely well for himself in business. He eventually became a Senator and his daughter married into the fabulously wealthy Vanderbilt family. Ralph’s descendants in Seaham today (and there must be many) are therefore all related to that illustrious American family whose most famous modern member is Gloria.

    NB: The Mill House is mentioned later in the census. Quite where this Mill House was is not apparent from maps of the period. Logically it should be near to the Baths and North Terrace. Seaham did have a steam mill for corn and a saw mill but these were a quarter of a mile to the south. As you can see it was big enough to house four families.

The Lord Seaham is now called the Harbour View Hotel and next door to the south is a passageway through to what was Back North Terrace. This became known as Prosser’s Opening or Prosser’s Entry (see picture above) and will be mentioned again in later censuses. Originally the passageway was a tunnel with several families recorded as having lived above it.
