Notes for John KING
From the Emsworth Directory
A Brief History of Emsworth
... John King the shipbuilder installed one of the first Steam engines in this part of Hampshire in the third mill in Kings Street, using it to saw timber when not grinding flour. ... The wadeway to Thorney started from the bottom of Sware Lane later named King Street after John King the shipbuilder, and passed by Eames Farm then a small Island. ... John King the shipwright is believed to have come to Emsworth in the 1780s and built the House called 'The Hut' in 1795. The wooden sections had been prefabricated in the shipyard further down the road, and assembled around the ready built chimney stacks. It still stands to this day in King Street.
