Coatham, East

COATHAM, EAST, a hamlet, in the parish of Kirk-Leatham, union of Guisborough, E. division of the liberty of Langbaurgh, N. riding of York, 6¾ miles (N. by W.) from Guisborough; containing, with West Coatham, 371 inhabitants. This is a small fishing village near the mouth of the Tees, formerly much resorted to for sea-bathing, but now eclipsed by the neighbouring town of Redcar: the sands in the neighbourhood are well adapted for the promenade or the carriage, and the prospect is often rendered pleasing from the number of trading-vessels sailing in the offing. A school is supported by an income of £47, arising principally from the revenues of Kirk-Leatham school.

Transcribed from A Topographical Dictionary of England, by Samuel Lewis, 7th edition, published in 1848.
