Pete, not being picky but the great Captain Cook was born in Great Ayton (pronounced "Great Ayton" by the locals and "canny Yatton" by the townies in the same perverse way as you rightly point out about Chop Gate!). His family moved to Marton when he was young and just before he was packed off to Staithes as an apprentice shipbuilder.

Some time later, Marton celebrated their favourite inhabitant by building Capt Cook's Memorial School, which is where life started to go all wrong for me.

cheers, Terry
