History of Glendevon

Although we're not sure exactly how old Glendevon is precisely we have a documentary records dating from the early 19th century up to the present day

We know that the cottage has been inhabited by a succession of families working in seafaring and mining - industries and occupations of importance to the local area. Glendevon is a genuine fishermens' cottage

The profession of Master Mariner features in the ownership records commentary - a Master Mariner was the highest qualification possible in the Merchant Navy

Local Staithes names are connected to the cottage - Ward - Shippey - Crooks - Theaker

In 1861 Glendevon had 3 residents - this had risen to 8 in 1871 and included a young girl as a house servant - Sarah Crooks, and a lodger Ann Theaker

In 1881 one of the sons of the household Matthew Ward was at sea and is recorded as serving on the 'True Love' a fishing vessel from Whitby manned by Staithes fishermen

By 1911 Matthew was in the fish business on his own account as a Hawker owning his own horse and cart. It is not hard to imagine Matthew shouting his wares on 'The Staithe' then delivering orders by horse drawn transport to local villages

A lovely cottage

  • 5 of 5

A lovely cottage, perfect for our family, just over the road from the beach and the cod and lobster pub which does great food and is a good spot to take kids. The cottage was very clean and had everything we needed.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Great cottage and in a great location. Warm and clean with everything needed for a break. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that the shower water was only luke warm, but apart from that would definitely recommend this to anyone. Thanks for a great stay
