Study Description 

In 1821, The Port of Hull Society for the Religious Instruction to Seamen was founded. In 1867 the society purchased a large property, Thanet House, in Park Street which was adapted and extended to accommodate around 100 orphans: the property was subsequently further extended to accommodate some 200 children who came from ports along much of the East Coast of England as well as inland ports.
In 1895 they moved to new, purpose built, cottage homes on the outskirts of the city.
This study considers all those who were resident in the home on Park Street (both staff and orphans) as those who were influential in the foundation of the society and the management of the institution.
