THE PORT OF HULL SOCIETY FOR THE RELIGIOUS INSTRUCTION OF SEAMEN
GENEALOGY

 

 

The Port of Hull Society for the Religious Instruction of Seamen laterly became the Sailors Families Society (Newland Homes). The Society for the religious instruction of seamen was formed in 1821 and intially was set up to try to change the moral vices of the many seamen of all kinds sailing from Hull, The society made an appeal and raised £1,000 enabelling them to purchase a vessel to use as a chapel ( The Valiant an ex 16 gun Dutch merchant vessel which had been captured in the channel in 1803 )  The Valiant had become a British Merchant vessel under the ownership of Thompson`s of Hull, she was placed in Queens Dock and had her gunports sealed, Dr Raffles of Liverpool became the first preacher and the vessel was used for the first time on Oct 03 1821. Whilst from the offset it was only the moral concerns of the seamen themselves which where took in hand by the society it would not be untill 1836 that under the name of The "Sailors" Orphan Institute would see the society start to concern itself with the wealfare of the seamens children. At this time in 1836 the primary activety was to make an annual clothing issue to the seamens offspring as many where dressed in rags and had nothing on their feet, boys would receive a blue woollen jacket with appropriate design on the collar, a waistcoat and a pair of trousers, two shirts, two pairs of stockings, a cap or hat and a handkerchief.  The girls would receive a blue stuff frock, a straw bonnet, a cap and tippet. Under the name of The Sailors’ Children’s Society the first orphanage was opened in Park Street Hull in 1869.

In 1875 it cost the Society £6/8/2d to support a child for one year

 

By 1893 with the aid of fundraising and publicity, at times the children would be paraded through the streets while their own pipe band played this was later stopped,  and with the backing of local men such as James Reckitt, Joseph Rank, Joseph Rowntree and Sir Titus Salt of Bradford the society was able to purchase the land on Cottingham road and have purpose built villas erected. Children would be cared for in groups similar to that of the family home and be looked after by foster parents, this was an ambitious project for 1893 which without a doubt over the last centuary brought its own rewards and succeses to the many unfortunate orphans who where placed there untill its closure in 2005. Newland Holmes would also own its own home in Hornsea where the children could be taken away on holiday.
