House by House Directory of Coltman Street

Originally known as Coltman's street (source- White's directory 1851)

Some of this information was originally used to form the basis for a 'Living Museum'. A 'museum exhibit' label was attached to each house during the 'Village street party of 2002, encouraging young and old to learn and former residents to remember the fascinating history of the street. By doing this we hope to re-awaken community pride in our area. Many thanks to the many local people who have contributed to this with their memories of their time on Coltman Street and with family histories. We are especially indebted to Marie and Norman Housam for the information from Marie's 1985s project and 1992 updates on the street and Norman's contemporary photographs. To Roger Hamilton for help with the many hours of trawling census returns and directories for names and dates and with inputting text. To both Chris Ketchell of the Local History Unit, Hull College and to Alec Gill for extending our knowledge and for their encouragement. And especially to the many former residents and descendants of former residents who have shared their family histories with us since we started this project. emails regularly arrive from all over the world with snippets of family reminiscence to whole memoirs! We are now attempting to add as much family and anecdotal evidence as possible to make this site by the residents about the residents and for the residents of Coltman street and the city of Hull. Please feel free to 'debunk' any unproven theories which are stated as such whenever possible. (2002 photographs Angie Scarr).

Please note that dashes before or after dates (e.g. -1881-) mean that we have not yet found earliest/latest dates of occupancy Land originally owned by -
1748-1760: William Lister (28 acres of 3 closes of meadow or pasture)
1760-1798: Trustees of Grace lister (widow)
1798-1818: Harriett - only child, married Amos Green
1818-1848: Sir Thomas Coltman -land gifted from Harriett Green his half cousin

A stone inscribed 'Coltmans Land' still stands on the corner of a wall on Kingsbench street opposite the Centre 88.

Coltman street is popularly believed to have been named after Rev'd Joseph Coltman. Incumbent of Beverley Minster between 1813 and his death in 1837. However Sir Thomas Coltman, His brother, inherited the land and was first mentioned as landowner in a property deed of 1840 regarding the adjoining estate of Brazil House (the area on which Constable Street school now stands)The first reference to Coltman street as a street is made in 1842 when it appears that 4 Houses were already occupied including what was later to become number 101. Sir Thomas Coltman appears to have been an absentee landlord. His duties as a judge keeping him in London at his home at 8 Hyde Park Gardens. His property transactions were dealt with through an agent (?R)Emsley in Hull - source, Information gathered by the original Coltman street residents association during the 1980s
1846 11 houses
1851 around 50 houses
1855 (melvilles) appears to have house numbers up to 114
However in 1863-4 only 70 entries in total
The renumbering of houses and then empty plots, to run in it's unusual sequential fashion appears to have occured around prior to 1864-5. Before the renumbering numbers appear to have been somewhat 'higgledy piggledy'.

(source - registers and memories of their daughter, Maude now -in 2002- aged 87.) Maude told us about her time at 111 where the family moved when Maude was 9. Maude remembers the great wooden doors between their house and the neighbours which served the three houses on each side until the bomb which hit Bean street "blew them to smithereens". (The mine dropped on Bean street the night of friday 14th/Saturday 15th March 1941 caused extensive damage. Casualties included 19 killed and 22 seriously injured)

She remembers the Street as rather well-to-do until after the war when the Council bought two houses (198 and 199 she thinks) and moved in some families whose children played in the street and threw tin cans "not like us". She thought perhaps they had been evicted from elsewhere. Maude (jun) left in 1947 but it appears her father continued to live here at least until the 1949 electoral roll.

Their daughter was Winifred Mary Nutt, married to 1st Captain Hedley Tarlington Walker, 2nd John Jones. Angela's older sister is Susan Magdalena Nutt who was born in Hull on 14th November 1948, then living at 24 Victoria Avenue.) Joseph Thwaites Coulthard was a wine and spirit merchant in Hull.

There were three James Nutts at 27 Coltman Street: James, French millstone maker, his son James Arthur, Highways Surveyor, and his grandson James Arthur Hassall, Sales rep, farmer, colonial civil servant
Much of the above information about the Nutt family was provided by Angela Walters (nee Nutt), great granddaughter of the first mentioned James Nutt.
The house was destroyed beyond repair by the landmine in Bean Street in 1941. We are awaiting more information and photographs on this.
The bungalows were built in 1954 as memorial homes for retired fishermen and seamen and given by friends of Thomas Hudson JP (1884-1945) in the fishing industry of Hull and Grimsby.

Claude's wife lived into old age and died only recently. Vivian also spoke of his father's shop on the corner of Daltry street where there was, according to family reminiscences, a butchers shop next door. The butcher was reputed to have kept a mongoose which he would put under peoples floorboards to catch rats! A useful asset in those days.

2003 bought by investors who then found they had to resell at a substantial loss on the collapse of the investment company with whom they had placed their trust and their money. A cautionary tale for those seduced by promises of huge returns for small investments and no effort. Sorry but something for nothing is a pot of gold at rainbow's end.

1972(beginning)-1973(end) This was the first home of the now internationally famous Hull Truck Theatre Company. Hull Truck was started By Mike Bradwell and John Lee who knew eachother from schooldays in Doncaster. After each of them had completed their further education they got together and started an unnamed Theatre company in London. They wanted to produce plays which were outside the regular theatre circuit, playing in universities, schools, pubs and clubs. this was at the time a new approach. Since London was expensive and the boys were young and hard up, they moved with the 'game' half of their theatre company to Hull. Here they found it cheaper to rent the whole of 71 than it was to rent a tiny flat in London. This gave them the opportunity of living in two of the flats whilse using the "freezing cold" attic as rehersal space. In the early months they had only a parrafin heater for warmth. The Hull Truck Theatre Company was born with the help of generous donations from some of the famous people they wrote to to ask for funding. Notable among these benefactors were Warren Mitchell and The Samuel Beckett Foundation with 50 and best wishes from each. During their brief stay in Coltman Street (around twenty months) They wrote and produced three plays, two childrens plays and a cabaret. They finally left because "they forgot to pay the rent". Even though they were gaining excellent reviews they were still a young theatre company with a tight budget!

-1890-1920- Schultz, Max. One of the most colourful characters to have lived in Coltman street. Max was a spy for the British in the first world war. He married Sarah Hilton in 1884 the couple had 5 children and settled in Coltman street. Max was a shipowner by trade and little is known of how he came to work for the secret service. He was arrested for running a spy ring in Germany in 1911 where he served seven years hard labour. Unfortunately, the people of Hull didn't realise what Max was doing for us and his family (as many other German Jews did at the time) suffered abuse and the house was stoned. [Have we changed much?] The family name was changed to Hilton and Max's efforts took a heavy toll on his relationships with his family. He died a broken man from the effects of excessive drinking

This house became a temporary HQ for the residents association at the beginning of the 1980s, before the Community centre on Bean Street was built. In the early 1980s the preferred site for the new centre was to have been where The Mews now stands but Bellway's plans put paid to this and they were offered Bean Street or nothing at all. Unfortunately the position on Bean street made the centre totally disconnected from the very group it was meant to serve.
88 1748-1840 A series of indentures and articles (legal documents) may show that a building was already on the plot of land.

In the 1980s the building was used as a council regeneration office and 'show flats'.

This means at least five generations of the same family have lived on the same street without 'breaking the chain'.

Now 'Terry's' shop. Run for many years until 2000 by Terry Smirk.-still known as Terry's. I (Angie) designed and painted the sign back in 1986 or 87.(the style and colours were meant to look a bit like a Yorkie bar) Because I was on state benefits at the time I was paid a box of groceries for the job. Terry has now retired but the sign still remains in 2002 - fifteen years later. I think he got his money's worth!
149 There is no 149. This was possibly a mistake when 148 was built and numbered, as the plot number was reserved for what became Gee street. During the renumbering some time between 1864 and 1865 the street was unusually numbered consecutively including the empty plots. 148 came after 147 at the other side of Gee street but in order later to match up the numbers next door was numbered 150 (it's original plot number) and so on. 148 (Terry's shop) really should be 149.

A piece of land behind these buildings was known as 'Ackoes' (the origin of this name is lost). The Fire brigade had an AFS training tower here during the war. Some of this land still remains empty and was known, at least into the 1980s, by local children as 'little Ackoes'. One ex resident suggested that the name could have come about because it was the place where a boy from Gee Street called Atkinson 'Akoe' and his 'gang' played. 1985 Grade II Listed Building

170 -1863-1867- Beeton, James (@ No26 old numbers)
It seems likely that the original house number was 26 rather than that Mr Beeton moved as this house is definitely one of the earliest built and displays simulated stone blocks on the lower half of the building (known as pargetting) popular in Georgian - very early Victorian times. I believe an attempt has been made to reproduce this effect on the first floor but this may not be original.

Of course to young Aubrey this was a generous tip, for which he was very grateful. However the problem came when he took the whole pound note back to his dad.

2002-One resident who has lived here 40 years says when he first visited in his courting days he used to walk on the street because he wouldn't have dared to walk on the pavement for fear of being told off by the 'posh people' in the houses
