Middlesbrough History

In 1801, Middlesbrough was a small farm with a population of just 25.

In 1828, Joseph Pease sailed into the area and just a year later bought just over 2 square kilometers of land that was serving as a farmstead. He quickly set to work and created an estate company that created a boom of business and expansion for the city of Middlesbrough. By 1851, the population had grown to over 7,500 residents.

The population continued to grow into the 1900s, reaching 90,000 by 1900 and jumping ahead again by the 1960s to over 160,000 residents. However, this would be the peak of population numbers for this town, as numbers began to shrink by the 1980s.
