    I think that they did, as every reference to them that I have found has the name of the coble.

    You may find The Northumbrian Coble website of interest: tomorrows-history.com/projects/PC0100030001/The%20Northumbrian%20Coble.htm (put http://www. in front) and it provides links to the Coble and Keelboat Society.

    If you can give me a family name perhaps I can help.
    I have a list of all Cullercoats cobles from 1860-1960. It includes coble registration number, boat and owners name plus the fishermen’s nicknames.
    All fishing boats are registered and licenced under the Sea Fishery Act of 1868.
    This gives the name of fishing coble, owner and registration number.
    Cullercoats cobles registration letters are SN plus a number.
    Example: Alpha SN1, owner Norman Fairbairn

    Hi Lonrad-B
    I wonder if you have the coble name and registration number for a Cullercoats coble owned by John Andrew Cole. He was born in Cullercoats in 1892 and so would probably have been fishing from around 1910 until his death in 1942. Family legend has it that he was the first person in Cullercoats to install a motor in his boat.
