Sunderland was once asunder-land that is land cut asunder, separated or put to one side. Sunderland is not mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086. Nevertheless by 1100 there was a fishing village at Sunderland. Sunderland was made a town in 1154 when it was granted a charter. (A document granting the townspeople certain rights such as the right to hold a weekly market). Sunderland slowly grew. However it only had a population of a few hundred in the Middle Ages. It would seem tiny to us but settlements were very small in those days. Sunderland, like all other towns in England suffered severely from the Black Death in 1348-49 when perhaps half the population died but it soon recovered. By the 14th century salt was being made in Sunderland. Seawater was heated in iron vats until it evaporated leaving behind the salt. Shipbuilding also began in Sunderland in the 14th century.
In 1717 a body of men called the Wear Commissioners was formed. In 1723 they built a pier on the south bank of the Wear. In 1797 another pier was built on the north bank. Wearmouth Bridge was built in 1796. In the 18th century the shipbuilding industry in Sunderland boomed. Sunderland also had a flourishing rope making industry. In 1798 for the first time a steam engine was used to power rope making equipment in Sunderland. In 1801, at the time of the first census, Sunderland had a population of 12,412. By the standards of the time it was a fairly large town. Furthermore the population of Sunderland soared in the 19th century. By 1901 it had risen to 146,000. The building of a bridge over the Wear in 1796 led to the growth of a middle class suburb north of the river in the early 19th century but in Sunderland itself horrid working class slums were created. Like all towns in the 19th century Sunderland was dirty, overcrowded and unsanitary. There were Cholera epidemics in Sunderland in 1832 and in 1849. However there were some improvements in Sunderland during the 19th century. Gas was first used to light the streets in 1824. The first modern police force in Sunderland was created in 1837. The Penshaw Monument was erected in 1844.
Sunderland Water Company was formed in 1846. A network of sewers was built in the 1850s and 1860s. The Theatre Royal was built in 1855. Mowbray Park opened in 1857. Sunderland Museum, Library, and Art Gallery opened in 1879. Also in 1879 horse drawn trams began to run in the streets of Sunderland. Roker Park opened in 1880. A Town Hall was built in 1890. In 1895 Sunderland gained an electricity supply. During the 19th century ship making boomed in Sunderland and the town became world famous for this industry. Other important industries were glass, pottery and rope making. Exports of coal also boomed. In the 19th century large amounts of coal were mined in Wearmouth. The first colliery at Monkwearmouth opened in 1835. It was followed by Ryhope Colliery in 1859, Silksworth Colliery in 1873 and Hylton Colliery in 1900. The port continued to flourish and Hudson North Dock opened in 1837. The South Dock was added in 1850. Hendon Dock followed in 1868.
