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

Surprisingly spacious cottage with good facilities and great location.

  • 5 of 5

Cosy comfortable cottage that - unlike most in Staithes- didn't smell or feel damp. Night storage heaters kept everywhere toasty warm.

Lovely clean and comfortable cottage

  • 5 of 5

We have rented cottages in Staithes before so we were aware of lack of parking in the old part of the village. We also know that the butchers sells milk and fresh bread as well as lovely looking meat. We often visit out of season so loved the cosy feeling of the cottage and made good use of the open fire. Many thanks to Anne for having the fire set and ready to light and also the lovely fresh flowers in the living room. The CoOp at the top of the village was shut for refurbishment so the bottle of wine left in the cottage was gratefully received and we have replaced it for the next visitors. Would recommend to friends and family and if Anne will have us we will return.
