RH051 The Railways of East Anglia in 1849

  • RH051  The Railways of East Anglia in 1849

NEW DECEMBER 2017 Harry Scrivenor was Secretary to the Liverpool Stock Exchange. He produced what was in effect a handbook for potential investors in the railways of the UK.

This file comes from the 1849 edition. The pages here include all the registered railway companies in what would become GER territory. These were the Eastern Counties Railway, the Northern and Eastern Railway, the Norfolk Railway, the East Anglian Railway, the Eastern Union Railway, the Newmarket Railway and the London and Blackwall Company.

As befitted his prospective readers, the seventy pages in the file look at the companies from a business standpoint.  For each one they list the lines open and the ones then under construction. There follows a detailed account of all the relevant Acts of Parliament.  For example "...by an act passed in 1846, the Eastern Counties Railway Company were empowered, as the purchasers of the Eastern Counties and Thames Junction Railway, to construct a branch from that railway across the river Lea to the pepper warehouses belonging to the East India Dock Company... The lease of the pepper warehouses has been agreed upon, the rent being 2,500l. per annum."

The most recent statement from their Board of Directors is then given in full, complete with its financial summaries. Each account concludes with details of the share issues to that date, and lists all the calls made on the shareholders so far.

The file is word-searchable and has bookmarks. It will be available to download as soon as payment has been made. You go to your account and click on ‘Downloads’. New customers create an account as they place their order.
