Conflict is a theme this week – there are anniversaries of conflict amongst members of Hull Corporation; of the aftermath of the Peasants’ Revolt; of the Act of Supremacy; and of later religious persecution leading to mass emigration. Coming a little closer to living memory, Calendar entries reflect Hull women’s role in the suffrage movement and, in the 1920s, a race riot – this time against black seamen, who fought back.
We celebrate memorable local people: Ian Carmichael, Rev Joseph Coltman, William de la Pole, Winifred Holtby, Colin Verity, and a local saint (who appears never to have been canonised), St Philip Ingleberd. This week also sees the anniversary of what is perhaps this region’s most celebrated landmark: the Humber Bridge.
Read also about the Charterhouse, the Ferriby boats, flood, Hull heroes, plague, trouble with the Hothams, the Spurn lifeboat, the Truelove story, and selling a town’s silver.
As usual, the incidents occurred in a variety of places in the East Riding, including Beverley, Eastrington, Elloughton, Hutton Cranswick, Keyingham, Mappleton, Market Weighton, Orwithfleet, Sunderlandwick, Sunk Island, Sutton, Winestead.
