Middlesbrough and Guisbrough Railway Company, 1852-1858

Physical description: 28 files and volumes
Administrative / biographical background:

Incorporated under act of 17th June 1852 (15 & 16 Vic, cap.73).

The undertaking was vested in the Stockton & Darlington Railway Company under act of 1858 (21 & 22 Vic, cap.116).

The Stockton & Darlington Railway Company was amalgamated with the North Eastern Railway Company under act of 13th July 1863 though the Stockton & Darlington Company maintained a distinct management of its own system by a Committee composed chiefly of its own Directors. By Section 35 of the Act the committee, termed "The Darlington Committee" was to continue from the date of the Act until 31st December 1873. The terms of appointment to this committee were, however, amended by section 28 of the North Eastern Railway (Consolidation of Stocks) Act 1870 by which the separate management of the Stockton & Darlington Railway became virtually extinguished.

The North Eastern Railway, the Hull & Barnsley Railway and the Hull Joint Dock Committee were dissolved and united into one Company by the name of the North Eastern Railway Company as from 1st April 1922 by virtue of the North Eastern & Hull & Barnsley railway companies Amalgamation Scheme 1922 dated 1st April 1922. This North Eastern Railway Company became part of the London & North Eastern Railway Company from 1st January 1923 under the North Eastern, Eastern and East Scottish Group Amalgamation Scheme 1922 dated 30th December 1922.
