LIST OF BURIALS AT CULLERCOATS.

be at equal expense in covering the said building.' It can well be understood that such plurality of ownership would lead to many complications. From time to time gardens and outhouses have been disposed of and cottages built upon the ground, and the fine passage way that ran through the house has been converted into rooms.

But time laid his hand heavily upon the old building! In 1887 the roof fell in, and the property was eventually condemned as unfit for habitation. A local builder, Mr. George Lisle of Whitley, then purchased certain rights, and jointly with some of the other owners greatly repaired the place, but almost defacing its original design, the north front being now the back. Nevertheless, it is interesting to record that two of the present proprietors, though in humble life, are direct descendants of the Doves, Richard Simpson, who owns the east rooms both up and downstairs, and Mrs. Brunton, who owns the west room upstairs. The course of their descent will be seen upon the pedigree.14

There is one member of the Dove family whom I have failed to identify, namely, Lieutenant Dove. In the 'terrier of lands, previously referred to, he is named as owning lands. By the kindness of Mr. C. J. Spence I am favoured with an interesting entry from Fox's MS. Journal :- Autumn, 1657. From Newcastle we travelled through the countries having meetings and visiting Friends as we went in Northumberland and Bishoprick. A very good meeting we had at Lieutenant Dove's, where many were turned to the Lord and his teaching.' LIST OF BURIALS IN THE FRIENDS' BURIAL GROUND AT

BATHS AT CULLERCOATS. Copy of letter from R. Robinson respecting the baths at Cullercoats:

Boldon, April 22, 1808. Sir, I have perfo my promise in copying the lease and sending it to you. Please to ask M' Huildleston if he gave any leave to MRichard Armstrong to Build Baths below the South Bank at Cullercoats: if not I think it necessary that he should be informed they are built and been in use last summer, Also that the sea banks have fallen in between Wm Shipleys house & one belonging to him wherein one Loff who keeps an Alehouse lives, but more in danger of M" Shipleys owing chiefly to the poor inhabitants getting coal at a seam above the freestone in the Bank.

Your obt, servant

R. ROBINSON.
