Undated newspaper clipping (c1922):

A Cleveland Golden Wedding
Mr & Mrs R S Maughan, Hutton Rudby
Hand loom weaving recalled
Our Cleveland correspondent writes:
Married 50 years ago at the Stockton Registry Office, Mr & Mrs Robert S Maughan, Hutton Rudby in Cleveland, have just celebrated their golden wedding.
Mr Maughan, who is a native of Eston, is 75 years of age.  Mrs Maughan, who before her marriage was a Miss Mary Anne Milburn, is 72, and is a native of Hutton Rudby.  Her father, the late Mr Thomas Milburn, was a weaver in the employment of Mr Allen Wilson [sic], who retired and closed his works about 14 years ago.  After their marriage Mr and Mrs Maughan went to reside at Stockton, and with the exception of that time, Mrs Maughan has lived in Hutton Rudby all her life.
When at Stockton, Mr Maughan worked at the Norton Furnaces, but later was a bleacher and worked for 36 years at Allen Wilson's Sail Cloth Works.  For nine of these years he was a journeyman, and for the remaining 27 years was a foreman.
For 47 years he has been connected with the Primitive Methodist Chapel, both in the Sunday school and as a local preacher, and he has held practically all the offices open to a layman.
At one time, in the earlier part of his life, Mr Maughan lived at Redcar, for about a year or so, and he remembers how there were three wrecks in one day, one of the ships being loaded with Dantzic wheat.
Mr Maughan told our representative that there have been few changes, on the whole, in Hutton Rudby - only a few houses have been built.  Years ago, he said, "there used to be loads of empty houses," but now they are very scarce.
Mr and Mrs Maughan have no family, but they have a large number of nieces and nephews, and at the celebration of their golden wedding there were no fewer than 24 relatives, including a great-great niece, aged one and a half years.
Mrs Maughan recalls how the hand loom weaving was one of the chief occupations of the district, and in the very house in which they now live, a hand loom was erected about 60 years ago.  Linen material, "huck-a-back" towelling, and "tick" were all made by these looms, and Mrs Maughan remembers that when she was a girl of about 12 years of age, she had a linen dress, the material of which she spun herself, and it had also been woven in her own house.
When the steam looms were started, a manufactury was erected at Hutton Rudby, near the church, and her father worked there, while her mother also acted as "web-picker."
An interesting story was also told of a Belgian refugee, an artist, who visited Hutton Rudby.  One day, when he came to their house (which is also the one in which they now reside) he was so struck by the antique appearance of the house and contents that he asked permission to paint it.  Permission was granted, and the old fireplace, with its "crane and wreckin'," on which was hung a kettle, became the background of a picture, the centre of which was occupied by Mrs Maughan, with an open Testament before her.  A musk plant was placed in the window, sweet peas upon the table, etc. and so charming was the result that the work was eventually hung in the Academy!
Remarking as to their age, Mr and Mrs Maughan pointed out that they were by no means the oldest of the inhabitants of the village; there were two people, husband and wife, who were both well over 90 years.


late July 1830:  James Maw lived in Hutton Rudby at that time.  He met Huntley, Goldsbrough and Garbutt on 30 July at 9 pm, “near to the Bridle-lane, leading to Crathorne, on the Middleton and Rudby road … Huntley spoke to me.  He said ‘Where has thou been thou caffey dog?’ … ”.  Maw went with the constable, Bewick, to question Goldsbrough, and again with the Catchasides, John Cook and other neighbours; he gave a vivid account of the interviews.  Maw had been in prison for absconding from his master’s service, and had been accused to taking money belonging to a trades’union.
