Hartlepool

I am not sure who was the first Shout to  move to Hartlepool. The first I have found thus far is Mary Emma Shout (1867 – 1961) who married Henry Heslewood (1867 – 1953) in Hartlepool in 1889. Mary was the daughter of James and Sarah Ann (see Richmond). In the 1891 census  Mark William Shout, his mother Sarah, brother William and sister Mary Heslewood together with her husband Henry Heslewood are listed living at 14 Kinburn Street. In 1896 Mark  married Ann Blackburn (1870 – 1938) and subsequently moved to Kent as did the Heslewoods where both men were machinists at the Royal Arsenal,  but more Shouts had moved in to Hartlepool and its environs.

William (1865 – 1939) remained in Hartlepool marrying Sarah Jane Drew (1865 – 1957) and they had two children. William died as a result of being hit by a trolley bus in the wartime black-out. He was a retired metal machinist.

Dora(h) (1896 – ) and Alfred (1902 – )

George Shout (1863 – 1928), the brother of Mark and William, with his family comprising wife Isabella Earl (1863 – 1952) and eight children of whom Isabella died in 1900 – her first year. These are my great grandparents. They moved to Hartlepool from Richmond. Their surviving children were:

George Arthur (1885 – 1965), married Daisy Archer (1892 – 1983) in 1913 and they moved back to Richmond about 1915. They had 8 children.

Annie (1914 – 1915); Daisy Maud (1917 – ); Nora (1919 – 1958); Florence W M  (1920 – ); George Lionel (1923 – 1937); Dennis (1926 – 1994); Douglas Arthur (1929 – ); Frederick Bernard (1931 – )

James Francis (1886 – 1976),married Martha Howell (1883 – 1953)  my grandparents, and they moved several times until they ended up in Whitley Bay, Northumberland. they had four children

Alicia Ethel (1913 – 1995); Martha Granger (1918 – 1997); Alan (1921 – 2015); Margaret Emma Milton (1923 – 2001)

Ethelbert ( 1888 – 1953),married Gwendoline Wilkinson in 1919. They had 6 children

Ethelbert (1920 – ); Hilda (1923 – ); Annie (1925 – ); Edward Ronald (1927 – 2002); Harry (1932 – 1932); Daisy (1933 – 1933)

Mark William (1890 – 1966)married Mary Alice Turner (1893 – 1970)  in 1914 and they had 6 children

May (1892 – 1973), married Clarence Roper & had 3 sons

James (1913 – ); Charles (1915 – ); Clarence (1917 – )

she then Charles Vincent with whom she had 2 daughters

Ruby (1922 – ); Dinah (1932 – )

May and Charles ended up living in Christchurch, Dorset. Clarence was a soldier and Charles was a sailor. As a child I always thought of him as the image of the sailor on Players Capstan cigarette packets!

Jane Eliza (1894 – 1979) married Albert Samuel in 1934. They had 6 children

Edna (1914 – ); Wilfred D (1921 – ); John Albert (1923 – ); May (1925 – ); George Arthur (1927 – 1929); Helen (1934 – ); Phyllis A (1936 – )

Hilda (1901 – 1971). married Arthur Barker and lived in York. They had 2 children.

Arthur K (1922 – ) and Lawrence (1925 – ).

I recall when as a child, travelling to Newcastle on the train there would be a longish stop, of about ten minutes I suppose, at York and quite often Aunt Hilda would be waiting on the platform for a quick chat with my parents while refreshments were obtained from the station buffet trolley.
