About this site

Teare and Sons sailmakers and ships chandlers were founded about 1866 by John Teare and traded on The Quay, Peel for 100 years. In addition to supplying the expanding 19th century fishing fleet Teare and Sons were shareholders in fishing boats and trading schooners. The Teare and Sons site is researching and telling Teare family stories.
