RUSSELS HOME LIST - 16 March 1961

The Russels Home page was posted in advance of the vessels arrival home and was placed in many prominent places, Ernie Suddaby who provided me with a copy of this document informs me, that he remembers these lists been displayed in the window of Chas Key Butchers and John Gibson Barbers they would also be placed in all the Hessle Road Pubs as well as the wash house at the top of Regents Street. These lists must have provided a wealth of information to the local fishing community. The home list would be used in all manner of ways, they informed the local community of which vessels would be landing, the wholesalers what fish would be available at the comming markets, they would also be used to calculate the amount of bobbers required for unloading each vessel. You can imagine the scene in the local pubs as skippers examined the home list and scrutinised them with the same precision as the football tables in the sports mail. Knowing at a glance which vessels had made a good trip and which had not, these facts could bear well on their own decisions on the success of future sailings.

Even with this short list which is one home list for intended arrivals, we can see the ferrocity and dangers which faced the men every time they left the lock gates. In future years 3 of the listed vessels would be lost, * Caesar and the James Barrie would be grounded and we would see the devastating loss of the Kingston Peridot with all her crew.

Note: I have replicated the list with the addition of Port Registration No`s and Owners.
