1838 · Jenners Department Store Opens its doors

Age 4

Jenners was founded by Charles Jenner as a department store for the community. The original building was destroyed by a fire in 1892 but, with a new design in mind, the store was reopened in 1895 with new features. It was named Harrods of the North after it was given Royal Warrant in 1911 and was visited by Queen Elizabeth II on its 150th anniversary. It was sold to the House of Fraser in 2005, which in 2008, made much needed improvements to the store.

Dickens A Christmas Carol was first published.

Age 34

The Representation of the People (Scotland) Act 1868 was passed by Parliament and allowed for the creation of seven additional Scottish seats in the House of Commons. Along with the seats, Two University constituencies were created. These each returned one member to Parliament.

Name Meaning

Scottish and English: apparently a variant spelling of Frigge, which Reaney believes may be a nickname for a timid person, derived from Middle English friggen ‘to quiver’.
