Now little about your lovely city Whitby,Ontario.

Whitby is a town and civil parish in the Scarborough borough of North Yorkshire, England. It is situated 47 miles (76 km) from York, at the mouth of the River Esk and spreads up the steep sides of the narrow valley carved out by the river's course. At this point the coast curves round, so the town faces more north than east. According to the 2001 UK census, Whitby parish had a population of 13,594.

It was in this period that the town gained its current name, Whitby, (from "white settlement" in Old Norse). In the 18th century Whitby became a centre for shipbuilding and whaling, as well as trade in alum and jet. Tourism and fishing now form the mainstay of the town's economy. There are rail and bus links to the rest of North Yorkshire and North East England. Whitby has featured in literary works, television and cinema; most famously in Bram Stoker's novel, Dracula. Large fossils have been found in the area including entire skeletons of pterodactyls. Whitby is known for its well preserved ammonite fossils, which can be found on the seashore or purchased from stalls or shops in the town. Three green ammonites are featured on the coat of arms of the Whitby Town Council. These ammonites are shown with a head carved on, as "snake stones", which were sold as religious souvenirs in memory of Saint Hilda of Whitby.

Several alum producing centres were established including, in 1615, one near Sandsend Ness 3 miles from the town. Two new industries thus arrived in the port of Whitby the transport of alum and that of the coal used in its production. Whitby grew in size and wealth, extending its activities to include shipbuilding, using local oak timber as raw material. Taxes on imports entering via the port raised the finance to improve and extend the town's twin piers, improving the harbour and permitting further increases in trade. In 1753 the first whaling ship set sail to Greenland initiating a new phase in the town's development, and by 1795 Whitby had become a major centre for the whaling industry. In 1839 George Hudson built the railway connecting Whitby to Pickering and York which played a part in the development of Whitby as a tourism destination.

George Hudson was also responsible for the development of the Royal Crescent which was only partly completed. Whitby was the site of the Rohilla disaster of 30 October 1914, when the hospital ship Rohilla was sunk (either by running aground, or hitting a mine; accounts differ) within sight of shore just off Whitby. Eighty-five people lost their lives in the disaster; most of them are buried in the churchyard at Whitby. Also in 1914, Whitby was shelled by German battlecruisers Von der Tann and Derfflinger, aiming for the signal post on the end of the headland. Scarborough and Hartlepool were also attacked. Whitby Abbey sustained considerable damage during the attack, which lasted ten minutes. The attack on Whitby was the final assault on the Yorkshire coast. The German squadron responsible for the strike escaped without capture despite an attempt made by the Royal Navy. In about 656, Oswiu or Oswy, the Christian king of Northumbria, founded a monastery after defeating Penda, the pagan king of Mercia.

Oswiu consecrated his infant daughter Alfelda to the service of God. Oswiu granted 12 small estates monasteries to be built. One was at Strean shealh, which became known as Whitby Abbey. lflda entered as a pupil and later became abbess. The first abbess, Hilda was later venerated as a saint. Whitby became a centre of learning, and the poetry of Cdmon is an early example of Anglo-Saxon literature. The abbey was the leading royal nunnery of Deira, and burial-place of its royal family. The Synod of Whitby in 664, established the Roman date of Easter in Northumbria at the expense of the Celtic one. In 867, Danish Vikings landed 2 miles west of Whitby at Raven's Hill, attacked the settlement and destroyed the monastery.After the Norman Conquest of 1066 William de Percy ordered that the monastery be refounded (1078), dedicating it to St Peter and St Hilda.
