Alum House

Joyce Dobson loaned us this rather good photograph of the Alum House at Hummersea; all previous images have been of the house has been in ruins. Obviously in it’s time a substantial building.

    I have now learnt that William Usher, Alum Agent from c.1803 (my great great great grandfather), who also commanded the Lotus Militia as a Captain, was baptised on 5th August 1759, son of John of Tanfield, Co. Durham. A lovely obituary was published in the Newcastle Courant. Jill Etheridge
