This booklet covers most of the known Christmas customs at this famous old town.

Whitby was the port where Captain Cook, the famous Royal Navy explorer and navigator learnt his trade from Quaker shipbuilders and he no doubt experienced, if not participated in these customs as a young apprentice seaman.

The stories on the customs were collected by the author from the extensive historical records and books of the Whitby Literary and Philosophical Society which he was a member of, as well as discussions with some of the townsfolk who the author knew in the course of his job as Collector of Dues for the Port of Whitby.

It is printed under my new name, the reason for which is published in my biography.
