[Note 153.1] "Hetton Main coal now is won" - Pigot's 1834 Directory of County Durham says..."The population of Hetton some thirteen years ago amounted to about 500 persons, at which period a colliery was commenced by the late Hon. Captain Cochrane, R.N. and Partners, which has so much increased in value in late years, that it is estimated that there are nearly 8,000 persons chiefly dependant upon it.
