15 Whitefriargate, Hull, East Riding of Yorkshire, HU1 2ER
As with the growth of all urban areas, whether through migration, natural increase in population or both, Hull's physical expansion brought it closer to settlements that previously had been detached from the urban area.
Whether these once detached settlements were villages, hamlets, even isolated farmsteads, their once identity could be lost/overwhelmed in the urban surge. Sometimes remnants of this identity survive but their significance can be lost. The historiographjy of this process can be revealed by a study of successive O.S. maps, but my ability to show this point will depend on whether the map collection at Hull History Centre is accessible before September.
Hull's physical expansion, that is beyond the medieval town walls, was heralded by the creation of the New Dock, 1770. At this point Myton (including Dairycoates and Newington), Sculcoates, Newland, Stoneferry, Drypool, Southcoates and Marfleet, were all independent settlements, although with varying degrees of commercial linkage. The talk will try to tell this story of change.
