Peto, Bart., of Somerleyton Hall, who purchased the harbour in 1844, and originated a company for the improvement of the port and town, the deepening of Lake Lothing, &c.

There are several charitable institutions, the principal of which is the Seamen's Hospital, and extensive barracks, containing a large armoury.

The exportation of grain and malt is considerable ; but the principal business of this port consists of the herring and mackerel fisheries. An extensive timber trade with the Baltic is also carried on, and Yarmouth Roads have long been the principal rendezvous for the collier trade. Customs Revenue, 1850, £38,372:11:11.
