Allonby in 1837
Allonby is pleasantly situated on the sea-shore, and is much frequented for bathing. It has a chapel of ease ; a school with a small endowment, and a Friends' meeting-house. A good building, containing warm and cold baths, has been lately erected. The inhabitants are chiefly engaged in fishing. The chapelry population in 1831 was 783. The market-day is Saturday. Captain Huddart, who constructed the much-esteemed nautical charts, was a native of Allonby, where he worked some time as a mechanic and also as a fisherman, and gradually advanced to be captain in the East India service, and elder brother of the Trinity-house, London. Hayton-castle and Brayton-house are situated a short distance from Allonby.
