    NB: It is not entirely clear where Dean Place was. There were 13 households in the street in this 1841 census, 20 in the 1851 census, none in 1861, 1 in 1871 and then it vanishes without trace. I have tried comparing residents in different censuses but without success. Guesses ?

    William Gardner or Gardiner, 50, Engineman
    Elizabeth G, 45, N
    Andrew Maddison, 40, Lodgekeeper (?)
    NB: The two Londonderry Engine Cottages mentioned here and in the next column were the first habitations in what would soon become Seaton/Seaham Colliery Pit Village. The Engine hauled the coal wagons up the last hill (the Londonderry Plane) on their way to Seaham Harbour from Rainton Colliery and other mines inland. The two cottages stood just behind what is now known as ‘Walter Willson’s’ shop. From there the last leg to the harbour was downhill all the way and a gravity incline was used.
    This incline survived (working) until 1988 and is now being turned into a walkway.
    Wouldn’t it be wonderful if it could be connected all the way back to the site of the old Londonderry pits at Rainton, Pittington, Framwellgate, Old Durham and elsewhere ?
    An (almost) continuous walkway from the statue of the 6th. Marquess on North Terrace to the statue of his grandfather the 3rd. Marquess in the Market Square of our beautiful Cathedral city and county town. Surprisingly much of the trackbed in central Durham still survives and it is only the section between Seaham Colliery and the Copt Hill that would be the problem. At Copt Hill the Rainton & Seaham wagonway passed under the Hetton Colliery Railway and thus there already exists a walkway connecting down to Hetton, the Raintons and Pittington from there. Of all Seaham’s historic monuments it is the trackbed of the Rainton & Seaham which should be restored and preserved for future generations. The Rainton & Seaham railway brought life to our town in its infancy. If there had been no Rainton & Seaham there would have been no Seaham Harbour and history would have been very different.

    NB: The Londonderry family were never resident at the Hall when the census was taken. They probably spent census nights at Wynyard or one of their other palatial mansions. The family occasionally organised shoots in the grounds of Seaham Hall in the early years but otherwise they never bothered much with the place. Wynyard was only 20 miles away and much more comfortable than what Frances Ann called her 'little pigeon ducket'. Later however, after the death of her husband, she lived at Seaham Hall for much of the year.

    The Port of Seaham

    HO 107 311/6 folios 3-6 & folio 9

    NB: The Census of 1841 was the first to record any personal details and was largely experimental. All the enumerator asked for from shipping was the name of the vessel and the names, ages and professions of people on board. He did not ask exactly where a person was born, only whether that person was born in the county in which he or she was now standing. The answer he put down on his sheet was either yes (Y) or no (N) or N(S) if a person was born in Scotland or NBorn Ireland if a person was born in Ireland or N(F) if a person was foreign born. The next census did introduce the question of exactly where a person was born and further asked for the relationship of each person to the head of the household and whether people were single, married or widowed.

    NB: Tom MacNee refers to the Wansbeck in ‘Seaham -the first 100 years’ as being the first vessel to enter the new port of Seaham Harbour on May 10 1831 from Memel in the Baltic with wood for building the staiths and two loading spouts. Clearly Seaham was her home port though this is not stated in the census.
