  1. My Great Grandfather John William Dickons was registered at this Hotel in 1892. Would it be possible to get more information from somewhere.

    • I was the last licensee to manage The Black Lion Smeatin Street North Ormesby for a brief period whilst it was closed down December 1971 til February 1972.
      The pub was more commonly known as The Cuckoo and was owned by Scottish & Newcastle Breweries. One of the Cuckoo’s previous landlords was one of the Carr brothers who played for Middlesbrough. I think it was George Carr whose nickname was pudding Carr.
