Huntley of Hebburn
Posted by Stan Wears on June 13, 2020, 10:24 pm
Has anyone information about a man called Huntly in Hebburn in World War II and his wife called Esther who lived on Victoria Road in Hebburn at the corner of st.rollox Street Apparently they were pretty well to do and my mother work as a companion to Mrs Huntley. Because money was scarce Mr Huntley paid for their wedding and I would like to know no more about this generous man
Newcastle Shipbuilding Company started a shipbuilding yard just upriver of Hebburn Ferry Landing. The Firm was founded by Mr. John Crass of Newcastle in August 1919, taking over the small slipway/ship repair yard of the Huntley Ship Building Co. They bought Mr. Huntley's yard early in 1918. They went bust a couple of years later and their Platers shed was eventually bought by a Gateshead Co called Reay Gear Works
I sincerely thank you all for the response! Mr Huntley taught my mother to drive and both were very kind. He had a lot of influence in Hebburn. I still have the silver cake knife he supplied for Mum and Dad's wedding as well as paying for it during. I only wish I could have met them both
