It provided a landing place for passengers and goods arriving by sea. The platform was suspended from the tops of four A-shaped Egyptian-style cast-iron towers and was popular with promenaders.
There were nine adults named George Brown recorded in the Census for Brighton, but fortunately the Club history booklet, —, mentions that he died inthe same year as another founder member, Charles Hindley. The Club history produced to coincide with the Grand Jubilee gala notes that George Brown was known for his somersaults using hand and foot blades, the former preserved in the Club Arch.
The writer of the history said: He was one of the founders and remained a member until his death. A bird fancier is not an occupation familiar to us today, but was popular in Victorian times, especially in towns and cities, where caged small birds like thrushes, bullfinches, goldfinches, larks and linnets were sold and often prized for their song.
They were in the water literally for what they could learn through exploring the link between action and understanding. However, you will find no reference to him in any of the books about Brighton nor any public memorial. Either way, he retained the title even after he relinquished his post. The details of his life are sparse but we know he was the eldest son of John and Maria, and was born in Newhaven inwhere his parents worked as grocers. So his origins were humble, and by the age of 14 we find him working as an apprentice to Charles Corder, a linen draper in North Street, Brighton.
Some time later he went to sea where he met with an accident, falling from a mast, after which his leg was amputated. We know his parents fell on hard times, his mother and younger brother Alfred being taken into the Newhaven poorhouse. His father, according to one story, lived in a cave. For further particulars, apply to Capt. Camp, any morning between six and eight, at the Bathing Place, or at his residence, 6, Devonshire-street. Captain Camp had served as the first President of the Club inas Captain in, and again from — according to the history in the Jubilee gala programme.
The earliest scrapbook for the club contains a letter published in the Brighton Observer infrom Charles Moore, Professional Swimmer to the London Swimming Club, concerning a recent visit to Brighton. Teaching swimming in the sea was not without its dangers, which may have persuaded Captain Camp to seek safer waters. The Sussex Advertiser carried the following report on Saturday 21st October Contemporary Brighton newspapers carried many reports of drownings off the Sussex coastline and this was one of the reasons for the foundation of the Brighton Swimming Club.
Captain Camp competed in club races and performed to the crowds who flocked to watch these aquatic shows, the seaside equivalent of the circus. Contemporary reports describe him as a marine acrobat, one particular trick being to undress in the water whilst smoking a pipe. Close to death, Captain Camp was living in poverty when he was discharged from hospital to go home to die at 28 Jubilee Street. The only income he and his wife Eliza had were her earnings of 15 shillings a week as a bath attendant.
A fund was set up to support him in his final illness and subsequently a headstone was erected in his memory at the Extra-Mural Cemetery where he was buried in the same grave as his mother.
The inscription read, according to a newspaper report: I dare the waves, a life to save.
Brighton Swimming Club scrapbook Ten years later we find him retired at the age of 50 and now living at Rosehill Terrace, which was built in the early s and suffered bomb damage in the Second World War. By the time of his death inat the age of 72, he was living in Prince Albert Street. Charles Hindley was responsible for keeping the first scrapbook for the Club, the source of much valuable information about its history.
The report on the Annual Match forrecords: Hindleyarranging the competitors in their proper order, dealing out drawers — for it must be perfectly understood that no-one was allowed to compete without wearing those inexpressibles — and answering thousands of questions put by troublesome reporters and the interested public.
We know from the Brighton Swimming Club archive that, inCharles Hindley was in discussions with the Mayor about the provision of public baths because so few boys in Brighton could swim.
Charles Hindley was responsible for the letter to the Sussex Daily News inappealing for financial support in aid of Captain Camp, who was dying of consumption. Ten years earlier, inwe can find an year old John Nyren, born in Brighton, who was living with his parents and six younger siblings at 30 Tidy Street, earning his living as a painter.
Is this the same man? All we can discover at the moment is that J Nyren was sufficiently active in the early days of the Club that he attended the first meeting and became, with Messrs Ward, Ensor and Worsley, a member of the Bye Law Committee. William Patching William Patching may be the paperhanger we can trace from the Census and through street directories. If this is the same William Patching who helped to found the Brighton Swimming Club, then he was born about in Brighton.
Married first to Mary, who bore him three sons, he then married Ann and, with a family growing to four more boys, continued to list his occupation as paperhanger until his late 70s. He lived for over 30 years in Portland Street, where the family business continued to function until the s. The Minutes of show that he took the chair at least once during the early Committee meetings.
The first is a letter to a newspaper dated 2nd Augustpasted into a scrapbook containing various cuttings related to the teaching of swimming, with reports of narrow escapes from drowning and the early activities of the Club and its members. I hope Mr Brill or the Town Authorities will cause a buoy or flag to be raised from it to prevent perhaps fatal accidents. If you will name this or insert my note in your valuable paper you will receive my thanks.
