Welcome to Brotton History

Like several generations of my family before me I grew up in Brotton. After spending the last few years tracing my family tree I realised there were very few resources available that had any detailed information about Brotton. It was then that I decided to make this site.

I started this site in 2008 and since then, I have spent most of my spare time collecting pieces for the site.

I have collected, newspaper clippings, photographs, old postcards, memorabilia, trade directories, and census records all of which will be gradually added to the site.

I hope you enjoy my site, please feel free to leave your comments or opinions.

If you have any further information, pictures, stories or ideas, that you think could improve my site and you would like to share please don't hesitate to contact me at

Thank You

About Brotton.......

The manor of Brotton was owned by Robert De Brus, Lord of Skelton. It was granted to him by William the Conqueror

Brotton is listed in the Domesday Book and has the medieval name of Broctune, which means "town on the brow of a hill".

The hill it refers to is Warsett Hill situated at the top of Huntcliff. It was the site of a Roman signal station built to defend against Anglo Saxon invasion. Evidence of this still remains at Huntcliff.
