Eyemouth Fishing Disaster

To Those In Peril On The Sea

The Trawler Margaret Paton

In Memory of the
SKIPPER and CREW
of the Trawler MARGARET PATON

who lost their lives
in the North Sea
on DECEMBER 26, 1949

In Memory of
JOHN YOUNG and WILLIAM LINTON
of the Fishing Smack NELLIE

who lost their lives
near the Black Rocks off Newhaven
on TUESDAY 2 FEBRUARY 1909

In the Newhaven Museum that closed in 2006, there was a wall on which plaques were mounted dedicated to the Fishermen of Newhaven who lost their lives in pursuit of their quarry.  Until that day comes again when our new Newhaven Heritage Centre is re-opened, this page commemorates the bravery of those stalwart men who go out to sea. Any donation you may wish to make will help hasten that day when the Museum is re-established.
