Hamlet of the ancient parish of Eastham
15 June 1894: Local Yachting News, Mersey. Jessamine, cutter, 15 tons, Mr W. Bowden, was alongside the club ship for cleaning last week, and has remained here since. She was under way for the week end, and I saw her turning down from Eastham on Sunday evening.
Alex, cutter, 5 tons, Mr J. A. Elgood, is still at New Brighton; she was under way for the week, and was up at Eastham on Sunday afternoon, as also was Chance, cutter, 3 tons, Mr R. E. Bickerton, and Ripple, cutter, 4 tons, Messrs Clarke, who had been for a cruise to Hilbre, as also had Seagull, cutter, 10 tons, Mr F. W. Walmsley, who had a rather incomplete race with Playmate, Hilbre Island Club, in which the latter had rather the best of the argument.
