September 11th

Howden

 

On 11th September 1666, Sir Philip Monckton replied to a petition from Howden residents to raise a company of musketeers to defend them, as the Great Fire of London had made them fear arson by a foreigner or Catholic; he suggested they double the watch and get the constables to watch the movements of every ‘Londoner’ at night.

On 11th 1795, Timothy Rymer, a sailor, was buried after drowning in the Humber, the body washing up at Blacktoft.
