Yarmouth – Today Great Yarmouth is a famous seaside town but for centuries it was an important fishing port. Yarmouth was famous for herrings.
Great Yarmouth was founded by the Angles. By the time of the Domesday Book, in 1086, it had grown into a little town with a population of a few hundred. To us it would seem tiny but settlements were very small in those days.
In 1209 King John gave Great Yarmouth a charter (a document granting the townspeople certain rights). From then on Great Yarmouth was a self governing community.
In the Middle Ages the prosperity of Great Yarmouth was based on herring fishing and by the 12th century a herring fair was held at Yarmouth. (Fairs were like markets but they were held only once a year. Merchants came from all over Europe to buy herrings at a Great Yarmouth fair). However certain ports in Kent called the Cinque Ports were given jurisdiction over the Yarmouth fair. That might seem surprising but ships from the Kentish ports fished off Great Yarmouth. Furthermore Great Yarmouth had not yet been given a charter and was not yet self-governing. So the Kentish towns ran the fair, which caused much resentment among the people of Great Yarmouth. In 1277 the King gave Great Yarmouth joint authority over the fair. However the people of Great Yarmouth were not satisfied and in 1297 ships from Yarmouth fought a naval battle with ships from Kent off Belgium.
However the Kentish ports were declining as they silted up and Great Yarmouth continued to grow in prosperity. In the late 13th century stonewalls were built around the town. The Old Tollbooth was also built at that time.
In the Middle Ages the church was very powerful and its presence was everywhere. A Benedictine Priory (small abbey) was built in Great Yarmouth in the early 12th century.
In the 13th century friars arrived in Great Yarmouth. Friars were like monks but instead of withdrawing from the world they went out to preach. In Great Yarmouth there were Franciscan friars (known as grey friars because of the colour of their costumes). There were also Dominican or black friars and Carmelites or white friars.
In the Middle Ages Great Yarmouth prospered. However the harbour kept silting up. Several attempts were made to dig a new haven during the Middle Ages and the 16th century. The present one dates from 1614.
The Elizabethan House was built in 1596. It is now a museum.
During the 17th and 18th centuries Great Yarmouth continued to quietly prosper. The Old Merchants House dates from the late 17th century. In 1702 a Fishermen’s Hospital (almshouses) was built for poor fishermen. Also in the early 18th century the Custom House was built. (It was originally a private house). St Georges Church was built in 1714.
Apart from fishing there was also a ship building industry in Great Yarmouth. Yarmouth was also an important port for trade with Europe due to its position near Holland.
