Our History

History of Henry Hird

Hull’s oldest jewellers, Henry Hird Jewellers has been run by members of just two families since it’s opening in 1852 and has become a well-known and respected firm which provides good old-fashioned service from people who care.

Henry Hird was originally located on Cumberland Street in Hull. 
Henry Hird found a growing market for luxuries in the bustling port of Hull.
The customers who were mainly fishermen, local seamen & dockworkers working in Hulls bustling ports when home from a long journey would come and spend their hard earned wages locally known as “the 3 day millionaires”.  
In 1900 the shop relocated to 270 Hessle Road, it’s current location.

Henry Hird died in 1921, Henry Cook Hird who was currently running the shop invited Phyliss Price for a 2 week trial which lasted 69 years, during this period Phyliss took over the business and employed her son David Whincup in 1956, who worked there until 1997.
David’s sister Yvonne Smith took over the running of the shop in 1997.
Yvonne had helped in the shop for most of her life whilst maintaing her career as a midwife / district nurse.

Today Henry Hird is run by Phillip Smith, Yvonnes son with the help from Phillip Gray, Sandra Cole and Michelle.
