1868 Susannah Dew, shopkeeper of Salthouse, was recorded in the Wells Register of Shipping as the owner of all 64 shares of a brig or brigantine called the Ionian, built at Prince Edward Island, Canada.
When Susannah died in 1878, she left 22 of her shares in the ship to William Dew, mariner of Salthouse, who was master of the ship at that time, and 42 to George Dew, labourer of Salthouse.
In 1879 George Dew transferred his shares to William John Dew of Salthouse, farm labourer, and the following year William Dew (the mariner) transferred his 22 shares to Richard Lynn, farm labourer of Salthouse.
In 1882 they sold their combined holdings to William Crathorne of Sunderland.

The above information was supplied by Mike Stammers who was lately in charge of the Maritime Museum at Liverpool and has written many articles on local shipping.

Richard (Dick) Dew married Harriette High (a daughter of Levi High) and they lived in the house now called 'Shenstone' in Grouts Lane in
the 1930-40s

Samuel Dix's line and that of his children does not currently fit in with the line of John Dix b. abt 1804 Salthouse who's line has been compiled by Rexie Akwei-Fraser - click here and contains a number of Dix family members who moved to South Shields & County Durham
Samuel & Charltotte had 8 children born in Salthouse between 1894 & 1906 namely -
Sidney Dix b. abt 1894, known as Sammy
Herbert Dix b. abt 1895 died abt 1964

William Ernest Dix b. after 1901
Charlotte Dix b. 30th December 1903 married John W Dennis
Alice Dix b. abt. 1906 married Walter Graveling
All the female lines continue on as they had children, but it looks the 4 male lines did not.
William & Thomas died at Flanders, France during WW1. William dies first on the 25th of May 1916, Thomas died on the 2nd of October 1917, further details as to the location of their memorial and the conflict they were engaged in can be seen at the commonwealth war grave commissions website.
On the 1901 census the family were living on Cley Road in Salthouse and Samuel was described as a Agricultural Labourer

Subject: James DIX

Hi Val,

I know you said that you haven't researched the DIX family, but I just wondered whether you might know who the parents were of James DIX, Master Mariner, please?  We have a suspicion that he might be connected with the family.  It is my husband's family that have DIX ancestors.  His mother is in her late 80's and has often said that her Great Grandfather was a ship's captain.  We treated this quite 'cautiously' - especially when we found him recorded as a waterman on the 1881 census!!  However, having now found the DIX connection, plus the fact that the family moved from Norfolk to Northumberland during the 1800's, makes me wonder whether there may have been an element of truth in the story - maybe Great Grandfather should have been Great Uncle?

I know that Elizabeth DIX had a brother, John, who married Elizabeth JARY in 1829 at Salthouse.  I have found one of their sons, Ansell DIX, born at Salthouse in 1835, living in South Shields in 1881.  I'm wondering whether James could have been his brother?

I would really appreciate any information which you may have.

Many thanks,
Chris Watson.

Val says: This interesting email made me look in the Salthouse marriage register for 19th c. but all I've got starts in 1839. (Chris Watson supplied the first three on this list.)

Dear Val

I subscribe to the Blakeney family history and was therefore the recipient of their BAHS newsletter, which mentioned your site. I found it exceptionally good, user friendly and well thought out. I wish other villages in Norfolk would do the same!.

I thought you might be interested in my knowledge of those of my relatives that lived in Salthouse. Although not direct ancestors Henry Cornelius ELSY was my great great grandfathers brother. Their father was the postmaster of Cley. Henry married Martha Geary on the 9th March 1846 at St Margaret in Cley. The registrar reads as follows: Both of full age. Mariner and spinster. Martha's surname may be Jary (See witness). Wedding witnessed by William C ELSY, Elizabeth Jary, and Mary Ann ELSY. No details of Martha's father or his occupation and she made her mark. The curate was Chas Morson. William and Elizabeth ELSY were brother and sister of the groom. Martha was born in Salthouse in 1825 and died in Cley and buried on the 21 December 1873 Burial ceremony performed by Thomas J Bewsher Burial register gave her age as 47 years.

At the time of the 1851 census Henry was living with his wife and son in the High Street in Cley next Sea and was employed as a mariner.

His mother in law Sarah Geary was living with them at the time and she was 78 and a widow.

In 1861 He was still living at the same address with his wife, daughter and mother in law.

 One of their children, John William ELSY who I believe was born in Salthouse in 1846 married Christiana Dix on the 26 September 1878 at Salthouse Parish Church. Christiana was born in Salthouse and her father was William Dix born c1808. At the time of his daughters wedding he was a labourer and in 1881 he was described as an ag. lab. and was living with his son and daughter in law in Salthouse.

John & Christiana’s children were:

Deborah Martha ELSY born Q 4 1879 Salthouse

Anthony WilliamELSY Q3 1883 Salthouse Died Q1 1940 South Shields

Morris G ELSY I born Q 4 1885 Salthouse Died Q1 1941 South Shields

John Henry ELSY born Q 4 1887 South Shields Died Q3 1957 South Shields

Arthur JamesELSY born Q3 1890 South Shields Burial 28 February 1922 Blackhill Cemetery Consett. He was a gunner in the Royal Garrison Artillery in the 1st World War

 John, like his father Henry, and Uncle’s William and Joseph were mariners and apart from Henry they all moved to South Shields, which is where, I was born.
I hope that the above is of some use and if you can supply me with any of the birth/baptism dates for those born in Salthouse it would be most appreciated.

The following information about the Harmer family has been supplied recently (17th June '05) by Peter Harmer (see the messages page)

Francis Harmer was listed in the 1841 Census for Salthouse living at the Green. Francis and his family emigrated to South Australia in 1848, and have many descendants across Australia and elsewhere.

His first wife Ann Christmas née Barrett had died in Kelling in Jan 1845, after adding two more children to those listed in the 1841 census:

William Harmer and Francis Henry Harmer, and in October of that year Francis married Maria Larkman, with whom he had three more children Edward, Thomas and Sarah.

Francis Harmer 1810-1892

e it full size

Francis Henry Harmer (1810-1892) m Ann Barrett at Bodham in 1831

They had the following children:

Hannah b 1832 Norfolk d Australia
Margaret b 1833 Norfolk d 1916 Broken Hill, NSW
Elias b 1837 Salthouse d 1906 Hopetoun, Victoria
James b 1840 Norfolk christened 1842 Salthouse, d 1898 Blyth, South Australia
William b 1842 Norfolk christened 1842 Salthouse, d abt1920 South Australia
Francis Henry b 1844 Kelling d 1935 Werrimull, Victoria
Francis' wife Ann died at Kelling in Jan 1845 and was buried there.

 Francis remarried Maria Larkman in 1845 at Kelling and they had the following children:

Edward christened 1847 at Kelling, probably died before 1848 when the family emigrated to Adelaide South Australia
Thomas b 1850 Mt Barker South Australia
Sarah b 1853 Bugle Ranges, South Australia d 1898 Adelaide South Australia

Maria died sometime between 1853 and 1861 in South Australia and Francis married again to Ellen Withers née Hopkins, who died in 1887, hence he outlived his three wives. 

While Francis was living in Norfolk his occupation was listed as a farm labourer.In South Australia he was also employed as a farm labourer but later his occupation is listed on certificates as a farmer.

Judging by the information we have gathered thus far, his family was living at Salthouse  at the Green during the late 1830's until the early 1840's after which the family seem to have moved to Kelling and then emigrated in 1848 on the ship "Bolton". Most of his male children were subsequently employed in farming too. 

We are currently working at tracing Francis' ancestry back further as it appears that his parents, grandparents and great grandparents lived in the Kelling/Salthouse/Weybourne areas going back to the early 1700's

I am quite happy for you to put these

All the best Margaret

I also have John Dewing's siblings and parents but these are all for Aylsham.

David married Emma who died in Feb 1909 (gravestone) and I believe he remarried in Dec 1909 but don't know who yet.
There is a photo of David and wife and child in your book so this may nudge somebody - it possibly looks like the photo of Amelia Pigott on your website.  David's son Arthur married
in Dec 1902 I believe it was Sarah Ann Pigott. 
Percival Dewing (David's son) married also in Dec 1902 perhaps to either Susan May Dennis or Agnes Ruth Kaberry.

If you read the history of the Oddfellows, you'll see that both the Oddfellows and the Masons can trace their roots back to the Trade Guilds of the 12th and 13th centuries. In addition, the Oddfellows does have some ceremonial aspects - a link to the heritage and traditions of the past (see History of the Oddfellows). http://www.oddfellows.co.uk/history.htm

Henry Parr of Salthouse 16th century, ancestor of Admiral Sir Christopher Myngs born in Salthouse

Francis Barnaby Pegg, lived and farmed in Salthouse for some years. The 1853 Inclosure Map shows land leased by him. Francis married Mary Ann Cubitt (daughter of William and Mary (nee High)) in
Salthouse on 18 June 1835, and they had ten children, all baptised in the village.

They were: Thomas William (b.1836), Henry Alexander Francis (b.1837), William (1839), Hannah Sarah Anne (b.1840), Barbara Mary Ann (b.1842), Susanna Elizabeth (1845-84), Marianne Francis (b.1846), Elizabeth Ann (b.1849), John Bishop Cubitt (1851-1912) and Frances (b.1854).

Hannah Sarah Anne Pegg married Matthew Holman from Thursford at Salthouse in December 1858. Shortly after that the family moved up to the South Shields area, settling in Westoe. Some of the men in the family were seamen, and others, including Francis, found work in chemical factories. Francis died in 1875, and his widow, who had become blind, died in 1894.
