1.2    Summary

   Alice (Kirk-Owen) Maitland's mother Elisabeth Chadwick was born in 1915 in Canada, but of an Irish family who were the descendants of William Chadwick (b 1636, the first documented Irish Chadwick and were latterly always known as the Chadwicks of Ballinard) who established himself in Tipperary. The families, even in Canada, seem to have stuck with the Irish diaspora: the only non Irish line was that of the Bells & Barclays: John Craven Chadwick, jnr, married Louisa Bell before moving to Canada.
    The family was thoroughly researched and documented by Edward Marion Chadwick, a barrister in Toronto and brother of Frederick Jasper Chadwick, around about 1900. EM Chadwick’s researches were extensive, but in summary, “the family of Chadwick is said to have descended from a Saxon Chieftain, Cedde, or Caedde, who, at the time of the Norman conquest, lived near Rochdale on the border of Yorkshire and Lancashire in a place named from him Caeddes-wyck: Chad's stronghold, from which his descendants subsequently took the surname Chaddewyk”.
    The Canadian branch of the family descended from William who, possibly under Cromwellian influence, moved to Tipperary, William to Gortnekilleen Cullen, and his brother Richard to Ballinard, Tipperary, Ireland. Both properties were close together, about half way between Limerick and Tipperary. On Richard’s death, Ballinard came under the ownership of William and remained within the family until the 20thC.
    Several generations later, John Craven Chadwick (1811-1889) emigrated with his wife Louisa Bell to Ontario, Canada, soon after his wedding in Ireland in 1837. Little is known of him except for his militia service and a church involvement. One of their sons, Frederick Jasper became a prominent businessman and newspaper owner in Guelph. Frederick married Elizabeth Stewart also of Ontario but from a Northern Irish family (Antrim), her Great Aunt and Godmother (Kitty Pakenham) married Arthur Wellesley and became Duchess of Wellington. Their 3rd son, Frederick Austin Pakenham Chadwick was raised in Ontario. He took Holy Orders, and started his ministry in Arthur, Ontario, where he met his future 1st wife, Alberta Dice; while in Windsor, Ont, he met his 2nd wife, Creina Henderson; their daughter was Elisabeth Chadwick. He later took on a parish in Vancouver, BC. See the Henderson Genealogy.
    Louisa Bell was of a family of Quaker merchants, originally from Cumberland, but moved to London in 1703. Her great grandfather, Daniel, was an eminent minister in the Society of Friends. He had a variety of commercial and industrial interests via the Society. One real puzzle is how John Craven Chadwick from Tipperary met Louisa Bell from Tottenham in London. There is no indication how John Craven Chadwick and Louisa Bell met: there is no sign anywhere of any connection, and their almost immediate emigration to Canada, but I makes some speculation in the Bell family section.
    The Stewart & Pakenham familes are described in more detail in their own volume, but they descend from the Stewarts of Tyrcallen, sometime lawyers in Antrim, and the Pakenham family, also of Antrim, the titled branch being the Lords Longford. The Pakenhams have a genealogy stretching back to Norman times. The Stewart volume has some interesting letters from Edward Michael, the Canadian emigrant to his parents.
    One of the early English ancestors was David Barclay, whose son was one of the founders of Barclays Bank, along with Joseph Freame. Katherine Barclay was the grandmother of Louisa Bell.

    Footnote to EMC Page 44: David Barclay was of Royal descent thus:
Sir John Beaufort, Earl of Somerset and Marquis of Dorset, son of John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster and grandson of King Edward the III married Margaret daughter of Thomas Holland, Earl of Kent and grandson of Joan the "Fair Maid of Kent", who was granddaughter of King Edward I. Their daughter, Joan was married to King James I of Scotland, whose daughter, the Princess Annabella was married to George Gordon, Earl of Huntly, from whom descended Catherine Gordon, married in 1648 to Col David Barclay of Urie, co. Kincardine, whose son Robert Barclay was the father of the said David Barclay. These were the Barclay family who became bankers.


This house was the seat of the Chadwick family in the 18th and 19th centuries. The present house dates from the early 19th century and incorporates parts of an older building. John Chadwick was resident in 1814 and William Chadwick in 1837 and at the time of Griffith's Valuation. The house was valued at £33 and held from the Earl of Portarlington. The Chadwicks were still living at Ballinard at the beginning of the 20th century.[1]

By the end of the 17th century the Chadwick family was established at Ballinard, county Tipperary. In 1738 Richard Chadwick of Ballinard married as his first wife Rebecca Ellard. In 1799 John Craven Chadwick married Elizabeth daughter of Samuel Cooper of Killenure Castle, county Tipperary. They had seven sons and four daughters. The eldest son William had three daughters and when he died in 1876 he was succeeded by his son in law Richard Austin Cooper, who assumed the additional name of Chadwick. At the time of Griffith's Valuation William Chadwick held land in the parishes of Shronell and Solloghodmore, barony of Clanwilliam and Donohill, barony of Kilnamanagh Lower, while Mrs Anne Chadwick held land in the parish of Shronell and the representatives of Richard Chadwick in the parish of Cullen. In the 1870s William's grandson William Cooper Chadwick owned 882 acres in county Tipperary. In November 1882 the estate of Thomas Dowling at Clonbrick and Cotifiagh, barony of Clanwilliam, was advertised for sale. Richard Cooper Chadwick was the tenant.[2]

John Kelly of Hillview, Chadville, Cappawhite Co. Tipperary Ireland wrote in 2002:
…… the Houses of the Chadwick Family Ballinard and Chadville formerly known as Bearna Dhearg were owned by two different Denis Kelly's. Bearna Dhearg's name was changed to Chadville owning to the name Chadwick and the "Ville" meaning house or place….. See under Rev Richard Chadwick (Appendix 7.8) for more on these houses.

Irish Emigrants to Canada – Expectations

The hope of emigrants is that they and their families will have a better life in their new country, including improved employment opportunities for themselves and educational and employment opportunities for their children. For many of the early Irish immigrants to Upper Canada (Ontario), who were predominantly landed gentry, this meant the opportunity to become part of a colonial landed gentry class that owned rather than leased their land as they had in Ireland.

Many of the landed class may also have expected to recreate the life they had enjoyed in Ireland, that is, that they would have large landholdings and lease out smallholdings to those who would actually farm the land. However, in Upper Canada, while farmers commonly used hired labour to assist them, government land grants generally reflected the family size, particularly the number of sons, and thus a landowner could not initially expect to accumulate large estates or to live off rents from their land. Instead, their land allocations reflected what they and their older sons could realistically farm themselves, they would be actively involved on the farm and they depended on profits from the sale of their agricultural produce. (from a paper on an unrelated family).

   Much of the earlier Chadwick information comes from a family history compiled by Edward Marion Chadwick (his text here), of Toronto (EMC), at the end of the 19thC. Some is quoted verbatim. Its veracity is not known, but agrees with other sources, but it may in fact have been used as the primary source for other supposed independent write-ups.

His diaries from 1858-1921 were microfilmed, and copies held by the Archives of the Diocese of Toronto, and another to the Canadian Heraldic Authority in Ottawa. (the former was reported as lost in 2001)[4]. This diary apparently has a lot of social content and might be worth looking at for other family references

CGT: The Chadwicks of Guelph and Toronto and Their Cousins, by EMC.

These two publications are very similar, and have been the primary sources for the outline of the Chadwick family. This outline has been “fleshed out” by other sources, particularly the Bell/Barclay lines.

Part of a small archive relating to this Bell family, the pedigree was written by one of their number in an otherwise blank booklet printed in the late 19th century. It is not clear whether some of the dates given relate to baptisms or births, the dates being pre-fixed solely with a ‘B’. Many of this family were staunch Quakers, and some of their correspondence is published separately (see under correspondence).

Betty and Creina, looks like it was taken at the cottage in Hampshire

Born5: 17/8/1915, Victoria BC, St John’s Rectory, 1611, Quadra Street.
Parents: Frederick Austin Pakenham & Creina (Henderson) Chadwick.
(She claimed to be born 1916 after Alice was born - no young mother should be over 40!)

Married, 1st5, William Beatty-Chamberlain, Lt RNVR, married 16/3/1941 at St John's Church, Victoria BC. His father was a doctor in the Isle of White. According to Betty, his sister married Wingate of Burma fame but this does not appear to be so. Went to St John's Newfoundland June 1941 on SS Baccalieu. EAC joined him for 1940/41. His parents had new house 1156 Goodwin St, June 1940.
They were married on a Sunday as he was on a ship that had to go to the Atlantic at 24 hours notice. Betty I later papers says she was married 1940, but if it was on Sunday 16th, it must have been 1941 as I originally recorded.

Married, 2nd5, Reginald (Rex) Kirk-Owen, Victoria, BC, 25/3/1949; he died 1959. More about Rex Kirk-Owen
Married, 3rd, Richard Leveson Vernon, 1978, Titley, Herefordshire.
Married, 4th, Ronald Stuart Thomas, 17/8/1995,

Died: 26/8/2012, Bryn Awelon Nursing Home, Criccieth, Wales at the age of 97. Her funeral service was at St Johns Church, Porthmadog, Wales, with a cremation afterwards at Bangor. The service was conducted by Dr Barry Morgan, Archbishop of Wales, who referred to her as feisty lady in his address. A party, as instructed in her will, followed at Portmerion Hotel in North Wales.

Issue5: Alice Charlotte Kirk-Owen, 3/10/56-14/3/97, married Antony Maitland, author of this text.

Her life, from conversation, albums etc:

    Betty was born in Victoria BC to her father's second wife, his first having died accidentally; he was, by her account an priest of the old style, with an extensive knowledge of the classics. Their life sounded rather Victorian in style: she had a governess until age about 10 when she went to Norfolk House School, Victoria, staying there until about 16 or 17. She had some further education at BC university. She did some volunteer nursing before and during the war. She had 2 older, half brothers, Freddy and Jack, who seemed to have spoilt her as a child: the arrival of her younger brother took some of the attention away from her....
   She married William Beatty-Chamberlain in 1941, moving with him to Newfoundland almost immediately after their marriage, she travelling overland by train, he by naval ship through the Panama canal. She was a Red Cross nurse in St John's for a period between arrival in 1941 and her return to BC later in the war, about the time the Japanese landed on Vancouver Island.
   Worked at Comox Hospital (Vancouver Island BC) before marriage.
   After she and Rex were married in 1949, they lived in Prince George (North of Vancouver) for a while where Rex had a cold storage business which was not successful. 
   She and Rex met first about 1940 (in a streetcar), but did not re-meet until after the War, when Betty had been married to WBC, and Rex to Jocelyn Farmer. In about 1950, they left BC for Toronto by car via California, Mexico and Southern US, Washington etc, staying with brother Freddy in California. Worked in The Whitney Block, Toronto. Lived in 83, Centre Street West, Richmond Hill, Ontario, Nr. Toronto for about 12 months. Sailed from Montreal 25/10/1952.
   On arrival in London, they first lived in Norfolk Sq, Holland Street (28A). Rex worked as an engineer for London Council before studying for the Bar. While in his pupillage, he worked late nights for the GPO to supplement their income (trainee lawyers were not paid at the time). After Alice's birth, they moved out of London to a cottage called Tudor Thatch Cottage, Oakhanger, Bordon, Hampshire, owned by John Burton's wife, Jacqueline, who had lived near them in London, and then to Ropley (Hampshire). They later bought Blagdon House, Keevil, Wiltshire, where Rex died. Betty worked 6 months in Bath after Rex died.
  Betty somewhat later moved to live with Richard Vernon, a friend from Keevil, in a rented house in Bwlch, near Eglwsfach, where they met RS Thomas, who was the incumbent at the time (1954-1967). They moved again to Bryn Gwyn, Llanegrin, near Twyn, Wales where Alice grew up. After Alice left Dr Williams School in Dolgellau for Hatherop Castle in Gloucestershire, about 1971, Betty and Richard bought Burcher Cottage, Titley, Herefordshire, which was nearer for Alice's schooling (a convenience so that Betty could get to the school more quickly to extract Alice from scrapes). Here Betty involved herself extensively in the local social scene and was a member of the Hereford sketching club.
    I, Antony Maitland, can make an unusual claim: to have given my mother-in-law away in marriage not just once, but twice; she came back each time.

Granny’s Address

As read (& Composed) by grand daughter Isabel at Betty’s funeral

As I am sure you can all calculate, I came late onto the scene in Granny’s life. From all accounts, before my arrival Granny had already seen and done so much. Anecdotes from each part of her life suggest that her attitude was to squeeze in as much as possible all done with enthusiasm and panache.
Elisabeth Agnes, or Betty as she was known, was born in the town of Victoria, in British Columbia, Canada on 17th August 1915. The year of her birth had in fact, until quite recently, been noted down as a year later, 1916. To all who needed to know or indeed bravely asked, Betty would have had you believe that she was born in 1916, not 1915. This discrepancy was only uncovered recently when my father was undertaking some family history research. When he questioned her about the year difference, Betty turned to Daddy and said “well, no young mother should be over 40!” A neat reversal of her birth date by a year meant she was 39 when Mummy was born! Betty remained in Canada for her school days and young life before moving to London with Rex Kirk Owen, her then husband, in 1952. Granny may have left her home country behind when she was relatively young but she successfully retained her distinctive Canadian twang for ever more. They settled into life in England, with Rex studying at the Bar. After mummy’s birth, in 1956, they moved out of London to Hampshire. Initially renting a cottage, they soon bought Blagdon House in Keevil where they remained until Rex died, three short years later, in 1959.
After this sad moment in Granny’s life, her tough survival attitude kicked in. Not to be defeated, she dusted herself down and soon found friendship and ultimately marriage with Richard Vernon. Richard was a kind, gentle country loving man who became my mother’s father in all but name, known fondly as Uncle Richard. They, with mummy, moved away from Hampshire to North Wales where Granny’s love of this part of the world began. They spent ten happy years near Twyn until practicalities required them to leave and move just over the border to Titley, in Herefordshire. Here Granny involved herself extensively in the local community and social scene. As a child, I can remember large Christmas drinks parties, Lent soup lunches and the annual attendance at the local Point to Point and Hunt Meets. Life at Burcher Cottage continued in this vein for over 20 years until Richard’s death in 1996. During this time, Granny was not wholly occupied with the social whirl of the area but was also dedicated to looking after her daughter, my mother, during her illness. Granny tirelessly gave support and practical help during this difficult time.
By the mid 1990’s, Granny was a woman in her 70’s. One would imagine, therefore, that life would start to slow down. Not a bit. She found herself in a whirlwind romance with the poet RS Thomas. Leaving Herefordshire behind, they returned to North Wales to live firstly in Anglesey and then to the local village of Pentrefelin. They married in 1996, on her 81st birthday I may add, and Daddy believes he may be one of few to claim that he has given his mother-in-law away not once but twice – to both Richard and Ronald!
Granny played a large role in the formative years of the life of me and my brother. Here are some stories, albeit through the eyes of a child, which I hope give a flavour of the Betty you all may have known and remember. When we were small, she used to collect us from school and the parcel shelf of the car was always so full of delicious treats that she quickly earned the title of “Snack Trolley Granny”.  She was a devil in the kitchen too. Historic roasts on a Sunday; followed by vanilla ice-cream and butterscotch sauce; light fluffy Angel cakes for everyone’s birthdays; and lashings of brandy butter at Christmas.
In the school holidays, Granny would whisk Ollie and me off to stay in Tenby in West Wales or to the Basil Street Hotel in London to give our parents a well earned break. I distinctly remember how deeply impressed I was that you could leave your shoes outside your bedroom door in the evening at the Basil Street and they would reappear in the morning shining brilliantly.  These trips were always full of generous treats and fun activities but there was never any doubt about who was in charge. Granny! Any step out of line and firm granny made a brief appearance.
Trips away were not limited to the confines of the UK. In fact, Granny was rather more adventurous than that. Quite regularly, even when she was in her 70s, she would disappear to a far flung part of Europe. I remember her returning from Albania in the mid 80’s when it was far from being the most stable country. She happily recounted to us that she had returned from the trip with barely a thing left in her suitcase having given clothes and cosmetics to women she had met who had nothing. Carefree, generous and adventurous indeed she could be.
Much of what Granny did was finished with a jaunty twist. Her rather traditional kilt skirts were always teamed with a matching jumper and tights topped off by a quirky beret and a slick of red lipstick. If you looked closely at home, little details hinted at her charming eccentricity - ribbons tied around the TV remote control, corners of cupboards, and walking sticks so they were easy to find; a bizarre collection of alcoholic drinks from herby Chartreuse to the angostura bitters to make her famous drink, Pink Gin; and funny little ornaments and keep sakes from every place she had ever visited. Even the type of cigarette that Granny smoked was more colourful and exotic than others. An annual Christmas request was a packet of the brightly coloured cocktail cigarettes made by Sobraine. In fact, one artist painted her and entitled the piece “Sobraine, So Beti”. Impressively, this twinkle and original personality never went away. In the nursing home we did not make trips down the lane in a wheel chair but in her “chariot”; she would tell me she didn’t want to eat too much so that she could keep “her girlish figure”; and when Christopher first met her she surreptitiously asked him to pop some gin into her plastic beaker.
Finally, I leave you with a thought from Winston Churchill, perhaps less serious than such a situation demands but certainly in keeping with the carefree, slightly naughty livewire Granny was – “I am ready to meet my Maker, Whether my Maker is prepared for the great ordeal of meeting me is another matter”.

    He was a gentle, erudite man (keen on the Classical languages), helped by a strong wife. He was a diabetic. He was a graduate of Trinity College Dublin (or was this Trinity, Toronto?). According to his daughter, Betty, he was a good hunter, and a number of photographs in his album (about 1906) show the evidence of his success; also shown are the camping trips made into the interior of BC. These were made with other friends and families, swimming and canoeing (Canadian style canoes).

   The accompanying picture is a good likeness of Rev. F.A.P. Chadwick, the newly appointed rector of All Saint's church, who will preach his first sermon on Sunday, Nov 15th.
   Rev Mr Chadwick was educated at the public schools and Collegiate Institute of Guelph, Trinity School College, Port Hope, and Trinity University, Toronto. He graduated in 1890 and took an honour course in classics graduating in 1893. Immediately after completing this course, he entered the divinity class winning the Bishop's prize in 1895, and graduated in 1896.
   The journal of the deanery of Haldimand in its correspondence from Dunville says "Mr Chadwick has made himself a very popular indeed. He is a young man full of energy and zeal, and under his ministry, the attendance and interest in the church has greatly increased.

1910, July[6]: "Rev. F. A. P Chadwick, who was recently appointed rector of St. Paul’s Church, Vancouver, is expected to arrive in the city in about a month’s time to assume his pastoral duties. Rev. Mr. Chadwick is at present rector of All Saints, Windsor, Ont. He is a son of the late Frederick J. Chadwick of Guelph. He was educated at Trinity College School, Port Hope, and at Trinity University, Toronto, where he graduated with honor classics, also taking the divinity course with several distinctions, amongst which were the bishop’s prize for general proficiency and the Cooper prize in 1895. For two years Rev. Mr. Chadwick was captain of both the cricket and football teams of Trinity University.

Rev. Mr. Chadwick was ordained in the diocese of Niagara by Archbishop Hamilton. He spent six years in a country charge at Arthur, Ont., going from there to Dunnville. In November, 1903. he was appointed rector of All Saints, Windsor. In 1905 he was made rural dean of Essex and did prominent work on the executive committee of the diocese and particu¬larly on the Sunday school and religious education committees.

"Rev F.A.P. Chadwick to be Inducted at St Paul's Church on Thursday Evening"
"Rev F.A.P. Chadwick, who has just arrived from his old parish in Windsor, Ont., to take up his work as rector of St Paul's Church, preached his first sermon to his new congregation on Sunday morning. The new rector has a quiet style of speaking, with slow generous gestures, with which he emphasizes the many natural illustrations of his discourse.
"For the first sermon at St Paul's Mr Chadwick chose the text from the Eighty-fourth Psalm, "Blessed are they that dwell in thy house. They shall go from Strength to Strength".

A précis of the sermon followed.

Cutting (undated but about Dec 1912)


More than two hundred of the congregation of St Paul's Church were present at the reception which was given last night in the Church hall in honour of their pastor, Rev FAP Chadwick and his bride, who have returned from their honeymoon. Mr and Mrs Chadwick were married in Windsor, Ont., where Mr Chadwick had charge of a congregation. The chair was occupied by Bishop De Pancier, Archbishop Pentreath of Columbia, also being on the platform. In his address of welcome, the bishop spoke of the warm feeling which existed between the pastor of St Paul's and his congregation, and stated when he presented to Mrs Chadwick a beautiful bouquet of chrysanthemums that it was a token from the congregation of which she was to be one of the guardians.
In reply to the address Rev. Mr. Chadwick warmly thanked them for the welcome they had given to himself and his wife on their return. There was a splendid musical programme during the evening.

Rev. F. A. P. Chadwick, Once All Saints' Rector, Now Is Rural Dean
Interest for may Border Cities folk is found in the announcement in the Victoria, B. C.. “Colonist," of the elevation of Rev. F. A. P. Chadwick, a former rector of All Saints’ Anglican church, here, to a rural deanery In British Columbia. Dean Chadwick is a son-in-law of the late Ernest G. Henderson, former president of the Canadian Salt Company. The following announcement of his elevation, as printed in the British Columbia newspaper, is self-explanatory:
“Accepting the hearty nomination of the Anglican clergy of Southern Vancouver Island, at the meeting of the Rural Deanery last Tuesday, the Bishop of Columbia has appointed Rev. F. A. P. Chadwick, rector of St. John's Church, as Rural Dean to succeed Rev. H. T. Archbold, who will leave shortly for Toronto.
“The position carries with it the responsibility of being presiding officer of the meetings of the clergy of Victoria and neighbourhood, and also of the ruri-decanal conference of both clergy and laity, which will be held previous to the meeting of the Synod on February 15.
“The unanimity of the nomination is a testimony to the high esteem in which Mr. Chadwick is held.
“In years of continuous service in one parish. Mr. Chadwick probably takes first place in seniority. Next November he will have completed a term of fifteen years as rector of John’s.

"Vivienne Chadwick, and Allan Leslie Baynton,  at St. John’s Church.

Canon F. A. P. Chadwick, former rector of St. John’s Church, and grandfather of the bride, and Dean Spencer H. Elliott performed the nuptial service.

The bride is the only daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John P. D. Chadwick, and the groom’s parents are William McMillan Baynton, Sidney, and Mrs. Baynton. Diaphanous white chiffon fashioned the bridal gown, with flowing lines in Grecian mode, and enriched in sparkling silver braid crossing the bodice and hip-line, worn by the bride. Her long lace mitts were in white, and white blossoms crowned her embroidered veil which cascaded floor-length. Pale lemon yellow gladioli, arranged in a waterfall bouquet, formed her sole note of color, and as her only ornament she chose an heirloom silver filigree cross on a silver chain.

Mrs. Elizabeth Chamberlain was matron of honor for her niece, and Miss Janet Whitmore came from Vancouver to attend as honor maid.

Their identical gowns of jewel-toned turquoise taffeta were fashioned with cap sleeves, basque waists, and full skirts. They wore long mitts in match¬ing hue. Fuchsia asters and anemones in their bouquets, matched those in their ban¬deaux.

“O Perfect Love was sung by Madame Lugrin-Fahey, while the register was being signed.

Guests were ushered to their seats by Leonard McCan and George McKeage, brother-in-law of the groom, from Nanton, Alta.

Charles Powers-Potts, of “Brook Royal,” Albert Head, who stood with the groom as best man, gave the toast to the bride at the reception.

Guests were welcomed by the bridal party, assisted by Mrs. Chadwick, who wore for the occasion, an ensemble of rose-crepe, with accessories of deep brown, accented with turquoise.

White candles in silver holders, bowls of sweet peas, and satin ribbons decked the bride’s table where the double-tiered wedding cake was set.

A wedding trip to Banff is planned by the newlyweds, who will return to the city to make their home.

Mrs. Baynton chose navy blue accessories with her suit of yellow gabardine, and yellow roses trimmed her navy straw hat.[11]"

One of Beverly's great passions was singing, which she did for many years with The Victoria chapter of Sweet Adeline's. This special group of women filled her heart and life with music as well as wonderful friendships. She also loved the water and became a competent boater. Beverly particularly loved the Gulf Islands. She held a special place in her heart for the care of dogs and was an advocate for the SPCA. Beverly was witty with a great sense of humour and had a wonderful appreciation for the beauty of nature. Not so long ago Beverly said her fondest memories were of her family, close friends, Sweet Adeline's and the time spent on the water. Although the last few years were tough for her. Beverly tackled everything life threw at her with a smile and a fierce determination that only she could pull off. Beverly has left us all with an abundance of cherished memories of her love of life and ability to live her life authentically. The family would like to extend their gratitude for the exceptional and loving care Beverly received from the staff at Qualicum Manor in Qualicum Beach.

Alan was lost in the Frigate Valleyfield when it was torpedoed on convoy duty in the Atlantic in May 1944 (see newspaper reports).
Maurice had been engaged to one Clare Ryan, as announced in the papers in July 1947: history does not relate how he extracted himself from that to marry Olga some 7 months later in Halifax, where he was stationed in the Navy at the time, commanding a weather ship. This may explain some of sister Betty’s vituperative remarks about Olga – Betty was to have been a bride attendant, so must have been a good friend of Clare!

In 1966, Creina and Aunt Kitty visited England, which her grand daughter, Alice remembered:
Miss Kathleen Henderson and her sister, Mrs. F. A. P. Chadwick, are back in their home on Victoria Ave. after a several months' stay in Victoria, B.C. Before going out west, Mrs. Chadwick went to Britain to visit her daughter, Mrs. Reginald Kirk-Owen, in Llanegryn. Wales, and her son and daughter-in-law, Cmdr. E. Maurice Chadwick, who is with NATO in Europe, and Mrs. Chadwick, and their family in Gerrard's Crossing. She’s been gone since last spring[19].
Creina also visited Betty in England in 1957.

    He and his brother John jnr were gazetted Ensigns in the County Wellington Militia, Guelph Rifles, No 1 Company, 11 February 1857[24] & Lieut. 26 August 1869, and later Captain. Served in County Council, co. Wellington and in Town Council of Guelph for several years; and was Mayor of Guelph in 1877.EMC
    Jasper was a prominent businessman, a Provincial Land Surveyor who served on the town and county council and was elected Mayor of Guelph in 1877. It was a big year for Guelph, the 50th anniversary of its founding, and Jasper must have presided over many celebratory events. He was from 1871 to 1885 the proprietor of the conservative Guelph Herald newspaper, and under his tenure it went in 1872 from a weekly to a daily edition. (The Herald was eventually bought up in 1924 by its lifelong rival the radical Guelph Mercury, which still publishes to this day.)
    Guelph Town Hall which housed the mayoral offices (as well as courts, market stalls, jail and library)  had been built in 1856, during a period of prosperity triggered by the arrival of the Grand Trunk Railroad in the town that year. Guelph itself had only been granted town status a year earlier. That prosperity was soon boosted with another rail connection to the outside world by the Great Western Railway.

    Guelph Board of Trade was determined to capitalise on these transport links and attract manufacturers to the town, and Jasper Chadwick was a founding director of the Guelph Gas Works, one of the Board’s schemes to that end. Its gas first came on stream on 18th January 1871. Gas meant heat and light, which in turn meant longer working hours in factories; and like moths to a flame, industries were indeed drawn to Guelph. (The gasworks survived until they were demolished in the 1960s.)

     In 1879, two years after Jasper’s mayorship, he could take some credit when Guelph was declared a city. Three years later, when the Grand Trunk and Great Western Railways merged, fears of a monopoly of rail access to the city prompted Chadwick and several other leading citizens to found the city-owned Guelph Junction Railway.[25]

F.J. Chadwick served on city council several times and in 1877 was elected mayor, he was a founding director of the Guelph Gas Company and an incorporator, along with Innes and other prominent business people, of the Guelph Junction Railway in 1884; among his numerous other roles he was an officer in the local militia and a member of the Guelph Cricket Club.
In 1882, Chadwick left Guelph for the Northwest, and in a dinner tendered in his honour he talked of the deep satisfaction he took in seeing Guelph grow and prosper. His remarks must have had a special resonance for many of the city's prominent builders:
"When I came to Guelph in 1848, it was a small place; the spot on which is now erected the Wellington Hotel [where the testimonial dinner was held] being a lumber yard, and scarcely a building of any pretensions between here and the market place. Her population at that time being counted in hundreds where now there are thousands. Coming here at an early period of my life I might almost claim to be a native, and as you have been kind enough to express in the address I have been identified with everything that has made Guelph what she is. Nothing, since I was able to take my share has been done for the advancement of our good city in which I have not taken an active part."
     A quote from the paper: “The new owner, former Mayor F.J. Chadwick was a Grit who had seriously damaged the Tory campaign of the previous year. The owner refused to reprimand the paper’s editor and the Herald was becoming Guelph’s Roman Catholic voice. In the next decade, Catholics had a forum for presenting their side in wars of the editorial page initiated by Rev. Dixon[27].

The Herald under the new and vigorous ownership of F. J. Chadwick turned daily probably in 1872. With the death of the Advertiser, Guelph now had two clearly competitive papers, The Mercury, a dedicated Reform journal and The Herald an unabashedly Conservative partisan. According to Acton Burrows (editor, and subsequently part-owner of the Herald 1874-78) everything at The Herald was improved under Chadwick. "The only feature in the paper, indeed, which did not undergo a change," he wrote, "was its unswerving support of the principles of the Conservative Party.. .
    One of the first things Chadwick did was to move the Herald offices to a new location above the Queen's Hotel. He was also soon to persuade a man who had once been the Mercury's best writer, James Fahey, to leave a new position in Hamilton and come and reinvigorate the Herald as editor. Innes in a letter written to a fiend in late 1871 acknowledged Fahey's talent during his time on The Mercury:
    Jim Fahey has left me having made an engagement with [Jonathan] Wilkinson [publisher of the Guelph Advertiser 1858-1870] to edit the Hamilton Standard which he proposes to start on the 1st of January. I might have kept him had I been willing to pay him enough, but the fact is he did not altogether suit me. For writing an article there was none better, but he was of little use on the local work, and you know on a country paper that is as important - even more so………..
     In spite of Chadwick's energy and willingness to hire the best available talent, there were money problems at the Herald. A former editor, writing of Fahey recalled that "[he] knew what it was to work hard for his wages and work harder to get them when they were earned. I think some of the wage cheques issued at that time by me Guelph Herald are still in circulation. The paper's own history published in 1895 recalls that 'the labor and money lavished by [Chadwick] on The Herald failed largely of accomplishing the desired results…….
    F.J. Chadwick went through several partners in an effort to make the paper a success, but finally in 1885 The Herald was sold under chattel mortgage to Henry Gummer.

DiedEMC: 10 Nov. 1889. Buried Farnham Cemetery, Farnham, Wellington, Ontario.

John & Louisa from EM Chadwick’s history.

.... came to Canada, in 1837 and settled at Cravendale near Ancaster, he
served as a justice of the peace and was active in the Church of England. The extended Chadwick family were large landholders and very prominent in the Guelph area. He served on the Niagara Frontier in the Rebellion of 1837-38 as a Volunteer in Capt. Alexander Milne's Troop of Cavalry and was gazetted Lieut. in the 1st Regt. of Gore Militia, 27 Novr. 1838. In 1851 he removed to Guelph co Wellington. He was twice named in the Commission of the Peace for that County. He was a Delegate in the Diocesan Synod of Toronto on several occasions; and was nominated a member of the Corporation of Trinity College Toronto by the Bishop of Niagara in 1875.
Probably 1st Battalion (Ancaster) Gore Militia, expanded and reorganised 16/3/1838.

I had almost forgotten John Craven Chadwick, fourth son of John Craven Chadwick, of Ballinard, Tipperary, who settled at "Cravendale," near Ancaster, County Wentworth, in 1836, and removed thence to Guelph in 1851, where he still resides. He served on the Niagara frontier during the rebellion of 1837-8, as a volunteer, in Capt. Alexander Mill's troop of cavalry. Subsequently he held a commission in 1st Regiment of Gore Militia. He has been twice named in the Commission of the Peace for the County of Wellington. He served as a delegate to the Diocesan Synod of Toronto, almost continuously, from 1853 until the separation of the Diocese of Niagara from that of Toronto, when he was appointed by the Bishop of Niagara as a member of the Corporation of Trinity College, Toronto. He is a Vice President of Guelph St. Patrick's Society. He has four sons, viz., John Craven Chadwick, residing near Guelph; Frederick Jasper Chadwick, of Guelph, who has taken an active part in political and municipal affairs for some years, and is Mayor of Guelph this present year, 1877. He also has been President of Guelph St. Patrick's Society. Edward Marion Chadwick, of Toronto, Barrister-at-Law, Honorary Major and Captain in the Queen's Own...[32]

He seems to have retained an interest (and income) from land in Ireland:
1882[33], 416A of land in Clanwilliam, Tipperary held in fee simple by the estate of one Thomas Dowling was offered for sale 14 November 1882, producing a rental of £105 pa. The lands which form part of the eastern boundary of Limerick and are within 2 miles of Limerick junction and Oola Stations. They are prime pasture lands and are sublet by the owners tenat and about £364/1/- pa. The purchaser will be entitled to the receipt of this latter rental on the decease of Mr John Craven Chadwick who attained his 71st year in April 1882, and who is the only surviving life to the lease, dated 22 August 1822 from Lady Damer to William Chadwick, subject to which the sale is made.

1867 Directory: concession 2e, lot 1b, freeholder.
1881 Census, Guelph, Gentleman, 68, Irish.

School Section No. 2 is situated South-East of Guelph Township, reaching about three miles down the old Brock Road and comprising Concessions 7 and 8.  In the late '20's and early '30's this land was taken up, groups of settlers coming from Ireland, England and Scotland, and a few from Germany.
The Robinson Family's "Blue Castle Gardens" is on Lot 12, Concession 7, fronting on the Highway.  Lot 12, Concession 7, was taken in the early years by a family of Kennedys who later sold to Chadwicks.  The late Judge Chadwick of the High Court at Guelph was one of this family ….

8.1              WILLIAM CHADWICK – “Billy snug”


of Ballinard3,
AF shows: (15BS-KXF)    Born: 1756 Of, Ballinard, Limerick,

EMC P24: Nicknamed "Billy Snug", born: 1741
Parents: Richard & Rebecca (Ellard) Chadwick.
DiedEMC: March, 1825.

William, "Billy Snug," probably on his son John Craven becoming of age, left Ballinard, and in 1799 was residing in Limerick.  In 1807 he was living at Willmount, County Tipperary. He seems to have maintained a greater measure of social dignity than any of those who came after him have been disposed to do.EMC

There was some connection with the Damer[53] family in that Lady (Caroline?) Damer leased 416 acres in Shronell to William Chadwick in 1822 (see newspaper extract under his son John Craven Chadwick).
In 1779, he was a signatory to a movement to use ony Irish produced goods to alleviate the state of the economy[54].
In 1781, he let some land and a house[55].
In 1790, he was a magistrate[56].

Father: 2nd dau of John Carden & Elizabeth Craven @ Templemore.

...(sister of Sir John Craven Carden, Baronet), second daughter of John Carden, of Templemore, County Tipperary, and his wife Elizabeth, daughter of Rev. Robert Craven and his wife Rose Otway. She had a marriage portion of £2,500 secured on Ballinard, Illanemeene and another estate.  She died February, 1782EMC.

William married 2ndEMC, in April 1783FMP: Sophia Carden, only daughter of John Carden, of Barnane, and his wife, Anna Sophia Roe, a cousin of his first wife; she survived her husband and had a marriage portion of £1,000 and an annuity of £80 a year as a widow.
Sophia diedEMC: September 1825, aged 82.

Footnote to EMC P24:
There are some old silver cups at Ballinard on which are engraved the arms of Rose Craven (nee Otway) arranged as those of a widow. A portrait in the possession of the writer has been supposed to hers, but Mrs Bryan states that it is a portrait of Mrs. John Carden (nee Roe) a house shown in the background being Barnane, and that a portrait at Ballinard of a fair haired lady, dressed in red, is that of Rose Craven.

He had issue of the 1st marriage only:-

The Cardens - A New Dynasty in Templemore

The 18th and 19th Centuries saw a new family establish itself in Templemore, the Cardens. Having arrived from Cheshire, John Carden, in 1698, leased land in the lordship of Templemore from the Butlers, from whom he purchased the estate in 1704. The castle that acted as their home stood in today's town park, but they deserted it in the mid 18th Century after it was damaged by fire. What became known as "The Abbey" was then built as the family home, supposedly on the site of a long lost monastery, but by 1902 the family had left the town. The Abbey then remained empty until the 1920s, when Auxiliaries took up residence there. When the building was later vacated the local Volunteers had the Abbey burned, thus destroying one of the most impressive legacies of the Cardens in Templemore.

Charles Spencer Bourchier was the eldest son of Charles Bourchier and Eliza Harman, this was Charles's second marriage. I am descended from Charles first marriage to Elizabeth Preedy.[xix]

1/3. Rudolphus Chadwick, (living in 1720).

In a former account of the family his name appears with the simple note "of whom nothing is known," but we now know something of him, assuming the very unusual name to be evidence of his identity with Rudolphus Chadwick, who appears to have settled in Cork and to have been a merchant there, and to have married, in 1739, Prudence Healy, of the parish of St. Mary Shandon. The following persons whose names occur in Cork records are probably their descendants, and they seem to have gone down rather in the social scale. Charles Chadwick in 1765 had an interest in Rathmore, a small property in the suburbs of Cork.  His eldest son, William, married Mary Rebecca White in 1776.  And there were the following marriages also; 1767, Mary, of St. Mary Shandon, to Joseph Merrick; 1778, Mary Elizabeth to Thomas Cooke; 1797, Mary, of Cork, to Henry Duggan, son of John Duggan, with an annuity if left a widow of £50 charged on certain lands. The following also appear:  Edward Chadwick, of 32nd Regiment, married, in 1780, Mary Ray, of Youghal, and Edward Chadwick, of Leitrim, revenue officer, perhaps the same man, married, in 1809, Margaret Homan.  The Cork Directory of 1914 gives two or three persons of the name, of whom the writer has not obtained any particulars. (CGT)

1/4. Michael Chadwick,(living 1720) a Quarter Master in 1743,

married Anna Maria, daughter of William Connor, of Clonmel, who survived him; he died between 1752 and 1757; had a daughter Jane, married, 1759, to Francis, eldest son of George Davies, of Bunreagh, County Clare; and a daughter Mary, married to John Lackey, of Clonmmel and of Kilkenny, who had issue, viz: (besides others) a daughter Maria, married to Francis Despard, of Fethard, eldest son of William Despard, of Killaghy Castle, County Tipperary.

1/5. Katherine Chadwick, (supposed to have been a dau. of

William of Gurthkilleen, but not certainly known as such) married to Vere Hunt of Curragh, co. Limerick, and had issue, one son, who died infant.
She died prior to 1760, after which the said Vere Hunt re-married and had issue.  His son was created a Baronet. The name is now DeVere.

1/6. Grace, married to Bunbury.
1/7. Ann, married in 1748 to William Blood, of Roxton, (EMC)

b. 1720, Cahirnemoher, Co. Clare, Ireland; d. 1791, Roxton, Co. Clare, Ireland, some time High Sheriff (1750).
She had a marriage portion of £1,000 and an annuity of £100 a year if left a widow (EMC).

Data of Ann's descendants from a source other than EMC:

A note: Bindon Blood's book states: "My forefather is said to have fallen very much in love with Miss Chadwick, but on approaching her father with a view to matrimony, he met with a refusal, as Mr. Chadwick strongly objected to County Clare and to Clare men. Thereupon my forefather assembled some friends and followers, attacked the Chadwick house and carried off the young lady, marrying her the next morning. Unfortunately, Mr. Chadwick, who defended his house with resolution, was shot dead, either in the attack or in the pursuit afterwards, during which it is said that a good deal of shooting took place."
William and Anne married in 1747 or 1748, and had issue:
2/1. Jane Blood, b. 1743, Roxton, Co. Clare; d. 1820

married: Edward William Burton, b. abt. 1740, Clifden, Co. Clare, and had issue:

m. Bindon Blood, son of William Blood & Elizabeth Bindon.

Bindon and Ann were first cousins; Ann's mother, Jane, was Bindon's father William's elder sister. William's ancestry, and their descendants, are listed under Blood of Cranagher.

Michael and Cecilia married 6 Sep 1809, and had issue:

I notice that in your genealogy you state that you do not know the name of Michael Blood's first wife. She was Frances Widenham, only daughter of Walter and Ann (Bindon) Widenham of Limerick. Walter was a merchant was a mayor of Limerick. Michael and Frances were married, St. John, Limerick, 27 April, 1782 and were childless. She d. 22 August, 1808.

EMC P 18 & Ontarian Families:
From Yorkshire, according to an old family tradition is said to have married a ward on Chancery in England, named, Grace Goggin, without the permission of the Court, and escaped out of the jurisdiction with his wife concealed in a sack. Had issue two sons, vis:-(but it is not known if these were the only children).

1/1. Richard Chadwick, of Ballinard:-

born probably 1662 or 1664,
EMC:... was, about the middle or latter part of the Seventeenth Century, in possession of Ballinard and Ballinglanna, which have been always held together and are included herein under the one name Ballinard. The extent of this estate was 434 acres Irish plantation measure, equal to about 700 acres English. By his will, dated 18th February, 1720/21, proved 1722, he left Ballinard and other lands to his nephew William (styled "Senior"), of Gortukilleen; for life, then to his eldest son Richard in tail, with successive remainders to his sons, William, Rodolph (or Rudolphus) and Michael.  He left to his wife a legacy of £590 and his plate and other articles; and a legacy of £10 to his niece. Grace Sadleir, and £60 to her children; and £30 to Pires Baron and his daughter Elizabeth.  Also he gave a farm to his nephew, Richard Ballard1.
He died S.P.  He married Mary Baker, who survived him, and lived with her brother, Walter Baker, of Ballywire. By her will, proved 3rd January, 1729, she left, besides other legacies, a legacy to her piece Mary, daughter of Barnaby (?) Baker, provided she married with consent of William Baker of Lismacue, and a legacy and also the residue to Walter Baker, son of William Baker of Lismacue.

Dublin National Library, 5/2/1998 Baker papers, found in Analecta Hibernica, No15, 1944, P372:
   contains lease (6/4/1685) by Edward Warter of Bilboe, Co Limerick, to Richard Chadwick of Ballinamoght, Co Tipp., for a fine of £120 and a rent of £45 pa for 3 lives (viz William Bourk, 2nd son of Dr Ulises Bourk of Droum Keene, Arthur Blenner Hassett of Ballinaganagh, Co Lim., and said Richard Chadwick) or 300 years the land of Castlelaughay, in parish of Kilcornane, Co Tipp., containing 300 acres of, plantation measure and lately enjoyed by Edward Crease.  Also: 2/1817, will of William Chadwick of Willmount, Co Tipp. and codicil 1820.

....from a 1922 book on the Bakers of Tipperary by Sir Augustine m. Baker, M.A. He states:


"In 1686 October 21 a Deed of Release was executed and afterwards registered in the Palatinate Records by which Richard Chadwick of Ballynamaght released Thomas [Baker - Mary's oldest brother] from the legacy bequeathed by the latter's father [Walter Baker] to his only sister Mary. (Martha [another sister] must have been then dead). This payment was in consideration of her marriage with Richard Chadwick. There was no issue of this marriage. She survived her husband and went to live with her brother Walter at Ballywire. By her Will proved 3rd January 1729-30 she left a legacy to Mary daughter of Baraby Baker and the residue to Walter son of William Baker of Lismacue, a legatee who was called after her father."[xxiii]

Part 3             

    This Bell family were Quakers, initially as farmers in Cumberland, but moved to the commercial and industrial world of Southern England, and were well connected with the merchants of London, and had some connections with Ireland, and the Americas, particularly via their Barclay relatives: Louisa Bell’s grandmother was Katherine Barclay, sister of one of the founders of the emonymous bank, and her mother was the daughter of another very influential commercial figure of London, Edward Vaux. They and the Barclays were examples of the extensive commercial and social network of the Quakers, many of whom became extremely rich and developed businesses both at home and in North America.

Our family sequence was:
John Bell of Hundith Hill, Cumberland – late 17thC.
Jonathan Bell of Hundith Hill (1654-1721)
Daniel Bell, Quaker Preacher of Tottenham (1685-1758)
Daniel Bell, of Tottenham (1726-1802), Married Catherine Barclay.
Jonathan Bell, of Kensington (1726-1855).
Louisa Bell, daughter of Jonathan, married John Craven Chadwick, jnr, and moved with him to Canada.
      How Louisa Bell from London met John Craven Chadwick from central Ireland is a matter for conjecture.
      An alternative explanation comes from the Barclay family in Dublin: Catherine (Barclay) Forbes and John Barclay, brother and sister of David (of Catherine (Barclay) Bell, grand mother of Louisa Bell who married John Craven Chadwick), were both in merchants in Dublin.
     David Barclay, father-in-law of Daniel Bell, jnr, was a linen draper: this may have been the connection with the Northern Irish families of Wakefield etc. Somewhere maybe this is the connection. There is not much indication of the activities of the Chadwicks of Ballinard. Maybe they were linen growers??
   There is another small indication in the records of a linen family of northern Ireland, the Greers, who were connected in business with the Wakefields of London, and there was a company of Greer, Wakefield & Bell; a letter in the archives[61] tells of a connection with the Bell family of Tottenham. The Greers were Quakers, as were the Bells. A Bell history also shows an early Bell starting in Dumfriesshire in the early 17thC, one of whom move to Cumberland and then to Ireland in 1655. Through the Quaker connection, the familes seemed to have retained contact.
   Much of the following is from the Quaker records. Very often, men are described as, for example, a “Citizen and Draper of London”. This must mean that they were freemen of the City and a member of a Guild. More detail was filled in from the memoir of Jonathan Bell (written early 1850’s when he was 80): his description of the family stretches into the latter part of the 18thC. An archive of letters relating to the Bell family has alse been included[62]. They range from the early 18thC to the late 19thC. Early ones show the Bells with trading and shipping interests to the Americas.
    One of the daughters, of Daniel & Katherine (Barclay) Bell, Katherine, married John Gurney of Norwich, whose progeny left a mark on the banking and philanthropic life of the country. One of their daughters was Elizabeth Fry, a famous Quaker Prison reform campaigner.
   There is often a difference in the dates of births, marriages and deaths because Quaker records until about 1750 used numbers for the months, but changed year at the end of February, almost, but not the same as the established church. Many transcriptons have missed this fact, and give the month name 2 months early, and, as so often happens, confuse the year during between January and March. In all the dates for the Quaker Bells, I have transposed them to the format of month number from January.

3.1    JONATHAN BELL – 1769-1855


A London merchant, like his father and grandfather, who were both Quakers, but there is no indication that Jonathan followed this path. Little has been found about him except for a transcript of a period of his journals, 1848-53, which make interesting reading – they were transcribed by his 4xgreat grandson, Timothy Egcumbe Ford in 2012.
Part 1, the journals, is 66 pages from July 1848-May 1853. Part 2, Aug 1851 – March 1855) and includes “Jonathan Bell’s Memoirs”. Subsequent parts enlarge on the various families. ..

The Bell family, like the Vaux’s were important merchants in the City of London, and would have know each other, so his marriage may have been somewhat of a dynastic event.

He lived for some years at Hornsey, and is often mentioned both by his sister Priscilla, and by his Chapman nieces. He had two sons and several daughters. The eldest son, Edward, was the father of Sir Francis Dillon Bell, for many years Agent General for New Zealand.
The second son, Jasper, a Colonel in the Royal Engineers, was born in July, 1809, and died in 1895 at Bromley: where he had lived for some years with his sister, Christiana, widow of Colonel Curphey, who died in 1894. It is to the kindness of Colonel Jasper Bell that I owe most of this information I have been able to gather with regard to the Bell family, as also photographs of pictures of his Father and Mother and other relatives.JBM

He had several partnerships with Jasper & Edward Vaux and others: 1807, as merchants of Maiden Land, Battlebridge; 1810, no details; 1826, as a wine merchant, although this may have been his son. There was also Jonathan Bell bankrupt, wine merchant of Suffolk Lane, again may have been his son. He was at a banquet of the Marine Society in 1832, when he donated 2 gns.

- My dear Wife shew suddenly Symptoms of decay in various ways & was severely attacked by Diarrhoea giving us all much anxiety - however, this passed off & she appeared recovered- but there is no doubt it was a relief of Nature for a time & most probably saved her & us from Sudden Visitation of death -

About the middle of the month however, as Fanny was reading to her- she was attacked in a moment with Paralysis losing almost her speech  her limbs on her left side - she was immediately to bed – remaining in this state till 28th Jan., when at 7.O. in the Evening she gave up her soul to God - during - 7 or 8 days of us suffering - but remaining in a state almost of loss of speech - under no irrisistability, altho’ restored in a certain comforting degree to all who surrounded her bed &c. occasionally could make us understand her thoughts & even wishes - she gradually sunk to a sleep which lasted more than 12 hours - with out a struggle or even a spasm - her countenance increasing in Inertness - her breathing becoming every hour shorter & shorter till it ceased for Ever!

3.2    DANIEL BELL - 1726


Images from Roger Sharland, Findagrave.

From Jonathan Bell Papers:
It seems quite likely that the miniatures of Daniel and Catherine, mentioned by Lady Chapman, were passed down through the family together with the original memoirs. Three miniatures exist that are referred to as various Bells, and I like to think that two may be Daniel and Catherine:

Daniel Bell was a Quaker, and coal merchant of Stamford Hill, Tottenham, with his business at Tottenham Mills on the Old River Lea. The Quaker contacts led to his children marrying spouses from rather further afield than was usual in the area.
There are indications that he had an interest in a linen business in Dungannon, Ulster.(see under daughter Priscilla and the Wakefield connection).

A slightly later view of Tottenham Mills.
They were a Quaker family. A grand daughter was Elizabeth Fry.

Born 21/8/1726, Tottenham, son of Daniel & Elizabeth Bell[68]. abt 1726EMC
Died: 19/10/1802, At his house in Stamford Hill, in his 77th year, Mr Daniel Bell, and eminent coal merchant and one of the people called Quakers. His remains were deposited in the Quakers’ burying ground at Winchmore Hill.[69]

Inherited Hundith Hill on the death of his brother Jonathan in 1791.

There is  a suggestion that he may have been connected with a linen drapers business in Ireland along with a Wakefield family, it is notable that his daughter, Priscilla married a Wakefield[70].

From Jonathan Bell’s Memoir:-
Daniel Bell must have been a fine florid young man, as, in his latter years he had a fresh ruddy complexion and rather a stately person, sinewy and active he never carried flesh, making him altogether attractive in person, not tall nor small nor short – this pleasing natural aspect was a picture of his natural disposition, it was all cheerfulness, kindness, easy contented temper, full of urbanity and extremely affectionate. He was quite a Quaker at heart, altho’ not carrying out its extreme rigidities, either in dress or habits, but he was temperate in indulgencies and always contented with his progress in life. A great lover of Nature he enjoyed the beauties of the Creation with an Ardent Spirit and whenever trials of climate occurred, he always expressed himself in a term of satisfaction, that it was, whatever happened, always for the best. His love of Nature naturally influenced his taste, and he was through life, from a boy, a thorough sportsman, a particular fine seat on horseback rendered him fond of hunting and he became an eminent Fox Hunter in the early part of life. Shooting also was one of his delights and he always alluded to as greatly skilful in this charming diversion, and as a climax of tastes, he was a finished fly Fisher and I think altogether was more a devotee to its various attractions than any other pursuit. I am rather warm in these descriptions, but I feel such an interest in its relation, from having, tho’ only a schoolboy been for many seasons a happy attendant upon his relaxation from Business in these occupations.
My Father’s settlement in life was at Stamford Hill, between Newington and Tottenham – a nice convenient residence, with about 70 acres of land, having also an erected Wharf and Warehouse on the River Lea; - this property had been purchased by some of the Barclay Family and my Father became the Tenant, and in which, the whole of a long life he lived; having carried on the Business of a Coal Merchant in a successful and respectable manner, altho’ much weighed upon by a rapidly increasing family.
Thus commenced and continued for many years the Domicile of Stamford Hill, well-known, and justly esteemed of all connections and friends in a happy, united, hospitable, respectable Home – and now I must skip or take a wide jump in this biography, bringing at once into notice the Ten children as associated members, all living together in harmonious affection, all living during the lifetime of Father and Mother, and I venture boldy to assert a more united – a more loving, and closely connected, affectionate family never existed. My sisters, one and all were highly talented, they were not accomplished in worldly elegancies, but their natural affectionate Unities led them to a wise cultivation of those Talents God had blessed them with, and through life they were all estimated as a knot of clever women.

1787: Wednesday afternoon as a man in the service of Mr. Daniel Bell, of Stamford-hill, was driving a Wagon loaded with malt by Shoreditch church, he was crushed between the wheel of his own carriage and that of the cart loaded with passengers for Edmonton statute. He was taken into Mr. Deard's, surgeon, a few doors from the spot on which the accident happened, where he expired in about ten minutes, The deceased had been married only twelve days[71].

There are a number of Gurney portraits in the National Portrit Gallery, many of them the descendants of John & Katherine Gurney.

John was baptised 10/1/1749, Norwich, died 27/10/1809, an obituary in the endnotes[84]. Obit has him in the 50th year of his age, but this must be a misprint for 60 – too young for marriage in 1775.

It seems as though there were 2 John & Elizabeth Gurneys in Norwich at this time: in the Appendix 7.14 there are some notes on this family, and the deaths of Johns do not fit in that our John’s father was dead by 1775.

1/4. Priscilla Bell

The painting by Francis Wheatley c 1770 in Norwich Castle Museum shows Edward Wakefield with his wife Priscilla seated on the right, and her sister Catherine Bell (later wife of John Gurney of Earlham and mother of Elizabeth Fry)

re Charles Johnston[xxvi] & Maria Suffolk[xxvii] (nee Mary Elizabeth Logie) in January 2001. [96]

Wakefield [née Bell], Priscilla (1750–1832), author and philanthropist, was born on 20 November 1750 in Tottenham, Middlesex, the eldest of six children of Catherine Barclay (1727–1784) and Daniel Bell (1726–1802), coal merchant. She was a great-granddaughter of the Quaker martyr Robert Barclay.[97]

She was educated at home near London and helped her mother educate her younger sisters. In January 1771, she married Edward Wakefield, a merchant; they had two surviving sons and one daughter. A Quaker, Wakefield was a noted philanthropist, founding a maternity hospital and a “frugality bank” in which the poor could save their money. She is best known as a children’s author; she wrote only one book for adults, the feminist Reflections on the Present Condition of the Female Sex (1798). Despite never leaving Britain, she wrote a number of travel books, including Excursions in North America (1806) and The Traveller in Africa(1814), basing them on extensive research. She died at her daughter’s house in Ipswich on 12 September 1832. (D.L.M.)[98]

From her father, Jonathan Bell’s Memoir: her mother – not tall, fair and light hair, very expressive countenance, not much animation, was preceptress, I may say, to her sisters, which her fine talents warranted – her memory is stamped to the world by her many valuable effusions, particularly addressed to the young people, now become perhaps rather obsolete, but not less valuable. Her name, also indeed fame , will never be forgotten for one of her charitable acts: - She was the original Instigator and Establisher of the Saving Bank system, carried into practical operation by herself and a lady (a neighbor) of the name of Powell and these two are recorded in the History of the Saving Bank.
I speak of her charity – her whole life was a devotion to benevolence!
..... She was a thorough Quaker in mind but (inconsistently) extremely fond of general society and some worldly amusements, the theatre she was fond of, but in those days it was an object of something like worthy interest. Mrs Siddons, Ladys Derby, Kemble, Parsons, banister were attractions to draw people. I never believe they were of evil intent. I have enjoyed many a play with her! Her husband was of a Quaker Family (I believe) but he was of the world and his wife therefore never put on Quaker habits

Microfilm copies of her diaries in the NZ Turnbull Library, she was quite famous herself for work among deprived women in east end of London.
Her descendants included Edward Gibbon Wakefield.

Extract from: “A Sort of Conscience: The Wakefields, By Philip Temple” -

The family suffered from recurring financial problems, a direct practical burden for Priscilla and the chronic prompt for many of her sons’ and grandsons’ actions in future years. She found solace, fortitude and life purpose in an enduring Quaker faith inherited from both her mother Catherine, granddaughter of Robert Barclay of Ure, the seventeenth-century Quaker apologist (and progenitor of the famous banking family), and from her father, Daniel Bell. After their marriage at the meeting house in Tottenham High Road, her parents had made a home at nearby Stamford Hill, 70 acres bordering the River Lea where a wharf and warehouse served Bell’s lifelong coal business. By 1796, Priscilla saw it as ‘Once the place of all my domestic joys, but now, alas! almost stript of all’ (22 July). As her widowed father neared the end of his life, she wrote on 25 July, ‘Could but age feel the advantage of continuing agreeable: what a delightful task to alleviate its miseries, as it is, it is an incumbent duty.’
Priscilla Wakefield’s Quakerism was actively and pragmatically Philanthropic. She was no admirer of orthodoxy. At a Friends’ meeting she ‘mixed with numbers of those who think that extreme plainness of habit and address is essential to rectitude. I admire the simplicity of their manners, and the purity of their morals, but do they not sometimes deviate into mere formality and uniformity of habit?’ (6 September 1796).
Priscilla had been brought up in an environment less restricted than that of many Quaker families. Daniel had been fond of shooting, riding and fox-hunting, which were not at all compatible with Quaker practice since Friends were adjured ‘not to distress the creatures of God for our amusement’. Priscilla was said to be ‘fond of general society and some worldly amusements':9 in December 1796, she went to London and ‘saw Macbeth. Delighted with the combined talent of Mrs Siddons and Kemble.’ But her piety and sense of propriety intervened as she added, ‘Why are these amusements polluted by dreadful intermixture of vice and profaneness.’

Wakefields were involved in the linen trade in Northern Ireland. The PRoNI website has:
“Linen Trade: “The letters to and from the second Thomas Greer form the bulk of the collection. Greer was chiefly concerned with the linen business but was also involved in the trade of general goods……. All through the letters the Greer family appear to have been connected in business with the Wakefields of London. The partnerships changed from time to time: the first was Wakefield, Willet & Pratt, and the next, mentioned in 1770, was Wakefield, Pratt & Miers and later the name was Wakefield and Bell.”

...a very remarkable person, elegant and stately, very handsome and graceful, endowed with talents, energy and feeling eve taking the strongest interest in every one’s affairs and pursuits, from the poor beggar at the door to the most independent member of her family or acquaintances – her career in life was a chequered one indeed, or rather unchequered, for its was ever a painful struggle – the loss of a lovely daughter, 14 or 15, in measles, gave such a turn to her heart that it might almost be said to have broken it, and she never recovered the deprivation, tho’ living above 70 years, her talents were not hid under a bushel, she wrote some novels, many efforts were highly spoken of, but never published, except a work of much notoriety, the Good Nurse[xxix], a code of regulations for the conduct of a nurse in a sick room, highly estimated by the Physicians of the day.

Edward Marion Chadwick wrote for Maria: “Daughter of Edward Vaux, in Holy Orders, and his wife Mary Johnson, of London” – his ordination is almost certainly incorrect.

There is no doubt from his will that this Edward Vaux was a merchant and insurer, and probably not a clergyman – as Sharpe writes[102], there was an Edward Vaux in Holy Orders who died in 1847 aged 44 (grandson to this one): it is very possible that EMC confused this with the (much earlier) Edward in this section.

There are a number of references that show Edward Vaux (and later at least 2 of his sons, Edward and Jasper) was an important member of the burgeoning London Insurance world:

1. There is a brief reference in “Treatises on Average, and Adjustments of Losses in Marine Insurance” (1833) to “ a gentleman of high and deserved eminence in the commercial world (the late Edward Vaux, esq)” This must refer to Edward senior as his son Edward was still alive.
2. An Edward Vaux was listed in 1800 s a member of the committee responsible for the affairs of the “Society for the Registry of Shipping”, which was very closely associated with the Lloyds market.
3. An Edward Vaux was shown as a director of Globe Insurance of London, est 1803, in 1844
4. There is a reference to “Edward Vaux of London and Edward Vaux the younger, insurance brokers, 1795” on the internet, but with a broken link.
This reinforces the idea that Edward Vaux and his son were important members of the Insurance world of London.
5. Referring to Lord Mansfield[103]
“Modern commercial lawyers may be surprised to find much in this historical account that is familiar. Mansfield incorporated merchant customs and usage into the common law. Prominent London merchants variously served as witnesses, special jurors and arbitrators in commercial cases. Indeed, one merchant, Edward Vaux, was said to have “almost as much authority as the Lord Chief Justice himself” in such cases. Mansfield initiated procedural reforms to deal expeditiously with his high volume case-load. He “was a decided friend to the arbitration process as an efficacious means of concluding cases that presented no question of law or need for jury deliberation, or that would be well served by an arbitrator’s expertise.” Mansfield’s  inclination to use “common sense to get at the truth” made him a great modernising influence on procedure and commercial law....[104]

3.4    DANIEL BEll - 1685


This line was not continued from Daniel (1726) until the alternatives were established (10/2003). Now continued 8/2019.

Born: 12/12/1685, Cockermouth, Cumbria
Parents: Jonathan & Rebecca Bell (Jonathan worked as a Governor of Cockermouth Castle, Cumbria)
this birth date comes from the Quaker testimonial, but conflicts with a record in tha Pardshaw Quaker meeting, covering Cockermouth etc of a son, John born to John Bell of High Castle House 16th of the 12th month 1685 (ie 16th Feb 1686). However, another birth, Sarah in 1679, looks to have been at Setmurthy, on the north end of Bathenthwaite Lake.

Died: aged 72 24/2/1758 Tottenham, bur 2/3/1758, Quaker Cemetery, Winchmore Hill, Tottenham
The worthy and much esteemed friend, Daniel Bell, departed this life the 24th 2nd mth called February 1758 of an asmatic disorder and was buried at Winchmorehill the 2nd day of the 3rd mth following aged about 72 years see the testimony concerning him in the monthly meeting book[105].

From Jonathan Bell Memoir (Daniel’s son):
“Daniel was sent to Royston, to learn agriculture, at an early age – during his residence there he became acquainted (but how I don’t know) with the family of David Barclay, then living at Bush Hill, near Enfield (Mx), I shall just mention that D.B. was a direct descendant of the famous Robert Barclay, well known for his great work – an apology for Quakerism. David was an eminent Merchant, possessor of a considerable Fortune, and lived in an expensive style, had a numerous family and was in high standing of Society – a Strict Quaker, as were all his children, but I shall stop here, as to him, tho’ I could fill a volume with the history of the Barclay Blood. His youngest daughter was Catherine, a lovely young woman, and had numerous admirers and lovers.
The young Farmer fell in love with her, and she with him, and after a long courtship and through many difficulties, won her, with a good fortune,
Daniel was a long time minister of the Quaker friends, and travelled a extensively round the various meetings, including Ireland. A 1760 publication: “A collection of Testimonies concerning several ministers of the Gospel amongst the people called Quakers Deceased” gives a good account of his life in the Friends.”

Daniel inherited Hundith Hill from his brother, John, who died 10/1/1744.

In his will, he left to his son Jonathan property in Cumberland, at Hatfield Hyde and White Hart Lane (London), and to his son Daniel shares in the (Quaker) Lead Company (probably the Bristol Lead Company) and in the Bristol Wire and Battery Company, which became the Saltford Brass Mill[106]. These were Quaker connected enterprises, with, amongst others, Abraham Darby of Coalbrookdale as a manager of the latter. He also mentions property in (New) Jersey and New Hampshire in America.
His interests show the extent of the interconnections of the Quaker movements, both at home and in America. There is no indication what his American interests were.



The Quaker record of the birth of his sons has his wife Elizabeth.
the Quaker Records has her as Elizabeth Sole, born about 1688 in Chipping Norton, married 15 October 1717, Witney Quaker Meeting[107].

There seem to be no suitable recorded births of Elizabeth, within the Oxfordshire area: she was probably Quaker, or at least non-conformist, so the records may not have survived.

Elizabeth Bell, wife of Daniel Bell of Tottenham, aged about 52 years, who died the 21st of the 6th Month called August, 1740 of a slow fever and was buried at Winchmore Hill the 25th [108].

Daniel had issue, Jonathan & Daniel from Qaker & other records, the remainder from a pedigree of Bell of Hundith Hill[109]:

At his house at Hertford, in his 75th year, Mr. Jonathan Bell, one of the people called Quakers, formerly an eminent shopkeeper in Tottenham, but retired many years, and elder brother to Mr. Daniel Bell, coal merchant, at Stamford Hill. Mr. Bell’s integrity, communicative and friendly disposition, will make him remembered with esteem by all who knew him. Another entry has him about 72.

JBM: “.... one Brother (Jonathan) who lived as a retired gentleman from a business which he carried on at Tottenham, with high credit and success, he was highly respected by all ranks and altho’ a Plain Quaker visited by all the Aristocracy of the County – a Bachelor, in a capital residence, constantly employed in Charitable objects, was, as was natural much sought after. He was intelligent, kind-hearted, particularly Polite and Courteous and esteemed, nay beloved by all ranks.....”

A Testimony from Tottenham Monthly Meeting, in the County of Middlesex, concerning DANIEL BELL[114].

OUR eminent and worthy Friend Daniel Bell, was the Son of Jonathan and Rebecca Bell, of Cockermouth in Cumberland, both descended of reputable Parents, and well esteemed in the Society.

He was born the 12th Day of the Twelfth month 1685; and being soberly and religiously inclined from his Youth, was often favoured with the tendering and refreshing Influence of Divine Love; so that when very young, he was frequently drawn to solitary Places for Retirement and Prayer; and, as he has several times occasionally mentioned, renewed his resolutions to persevere in Obedience to those early Reaches of Divine Grace and Favour; and was often fully persuaded, that by continuing faithful therein, he should be conducted safely through the various occurrences that might attend him in this Life; frequently remembering the Importance of that solemn Advice of Christ to his Followers, Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and his Righteousness, and all these Things shall be added unto you. And as he continued faithful in Obedience, he found it effectually verified in himself.

Soon after his coming to London, which was in the Year 1703, he entered into an Apprenticeship; and his circumspect and religious Deportment drew the Notice, and gained him the Affection, of solid Friends; and joining in an intimate Conversation with some of the most religious young Men, they had many precious Opportunities of Retirement together, to their mutual Edification and Growth in the Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ; which hindered not, but promoted, their Success in what they engaged in of temporal Concerns.

He came forth in the Ministry about the Year 1705; and his Service, in that Capacity, was well approved by Friends and others. About the Year 1708, he had a Concern to visit his native Country; and having obtained Leave of his Master, and with the Concurrence of the Monthly-meeting he belonged to, he set out from London the 25th of the Second Month 1708, accompanied with some Friends from thence to Uxbridge, where there was a Burial, which occasioned a large Number of People, who were attentive to the Testimony born, and the Lord’s Power was in Dominion, to the tendering of many Souls. And one of the Friends accompanied him into visiting Meetings in the several Counties they passed through, where they had many tendering and comfortable Seasons. And being come to his Father’s Habitation : —Please to take his own Account of the Reception he met with there, viz.

“My dear Patents, said he, received me with such Gladness; and that Evening many Friends came to see me, and our Hearts were cemented together in the Enjoyment of Divine Love, which was largely shed abroad amongst us. Blessed be the God of Truth for ever, who remembers his breathing Seed.  On the Third-day Morning I went to Pardsey-crag Meeting, and called to see our dear Friends James Dickinson and Wife, who went to Meeting, and a glorious Time we had, to the Joy and Satisfaction of many. And tarrying some Weeks in the County, I visited the Meetings in general, where we had many comfortable Seasons; and I accompanied several Friends, appointed to visit Families, and had good Satisfaction in our Visit; the Lord’s owning Power did attend us in a wonderful Manner; he was pleased to open the States of Friends Families very particularly, to the Edification of his People, in the Places where we came”

At the Quarterly-meeting for Cumberland, he met our Friend John Bell, and from thence they continued together till they returned to London, visiting Friends Meetings in the Counties through which they passed, where they had many satisfactory Times. In that Journey he had good Service, for the Comfort and Edification of the Faithful, and his Testimony had a great Reach on many of the Youth.

In 1710, he visited the Meetings twice in Kent, Sussex, Hampshire and Surrey. In 1711, he entered upon a Visit to Friends Meetings in most Parts of England, Scotland and Ireland, where several were convinced by his Ministry; and he returned to London the 6th of the Fourth Month 1713: Soon after which, he travelled in the adjacent Counties, and also in the Western, visiting Meetings.
In the Year 1713, he took a Journey in the Western and Northern Counties. In 1715 and 1718, he travelled in the South and West Parts: In 1744, in the North and East. In 1745, 1746, and 1747, he travelled in the North and West Parts. In 1748, he made general Visit to the Northern and Midland Counties; and to the same in 1750: And his last and concluding Visit to these Parts, was in the Year 1755. Since which time, he frequently travelled into the adjacent Counties, in the Service of the Gospel.

He was sound and edifying in his Testimony, often drawn forth in Points of Doctrine with great Clearness, which tended to the Opening the Understanding into the Doctrine of the Christian Faith and Practice. He was very affectionate for the Youth, and often engaged, in his public Ministry, for their Good; his Counsel to them was weighty and, of great Importance, delivered in so tender and affectionate Manner, as made him truly amiable in their View : In short, we believe him to have been a sanctified Vessel for the Lord’s Use. And being often times favoured with the qualifying Influences of the Divine Spirit, his Doctrine dropt as the Dew, to the great Refreshment of the Heritage of God and there are many living Witnesses that can set Seal to his Ministry and Labours of endeared Love amongst us.

He was constant in attending Meetings, both for Worship and Discipline. His Conversation was exemplary, sincere, and courteous; not tenacious, but condescending. He was diligent and industrious in Business, when at liberty from religious Duties, and the Service of the Church. He was a loving Husband, a tender and affectionate Parent, a kind and gentle Master, well beloved by his Relations and Friends, and esteemed by his Neighbours.

The last Time he was at Meeting, he was remarkably favoured with Power from on high; which was so demonstrated by the Fullness and Clearness of his Testimony, as to be taken particular Notice of by divers Friends that were present.

In his last Illness he was attended with the Over-shadowings of Divine Goodness; and though the Prospect of losing so dear a Relation, and so worthy a Friend, could not but be Matter of Sorrow and Affliction; yet, in the Midst thereof, the sweet Frame of Mind in which he was, when confined to his Chamber and his Bed, has caused great Joy and Comfort to all about him, his Soul being filled with Prayer and Praises to the God of his Salvation, in whom he had believed; and he who had been his Morning Light, he found to be his Evening Song: Breaking out often in Heavenly Expressions, saying, Mercy and Peace, abounded to his great Consolation; and that he had done his Day’s work. On a Friend coming to pay him a Visit, a few Days before he died, he said to him, The Lord has been my Stay and my Staff, and has helped me along, and find him to be so now.

He departed this Life the 24th Day of the Second Month 1758, at his House at Tottenham in Middlesex, and was honourably buried, the 2d of the Third Month following, in Friends Burial Ground at WInchmore Hill, the Meeting being attended by many Friends from London and the adjacent Counties, and several ' weighty Testimonies born, to the Comfort and Edification of those present; and we have not the least Doubt, but this our worthy Friend is gone to that State of everlasting Rest and Peace, where the Wicked cease from troubling, and the Weary are at Rest.

Aged Seventy two, a Minister Fifty three Years.

Still retaining his farm. He died much respected and esteemed 23 March (3rd mth = May) 1721, buried 25th at CockermouthJBM FMPi, of Castle

Married: Jonathan Bell of Hundeth Hill in Embleton took Rebecca Hall of Little Broughton to wife in the house of Richard Ribtons of Great Broughton on the 23 March (May?) 1679, witnesses Henry & Peter Fearon (Pardshaw Quaker Records).

There is only one known child of this Jonathan, Daniel Bell 1685, and this comes from the Quaker Testimonial for Daniel. No issue of Jonathan & Rebecca Bell do seem to be on the Pardshaw records.
However, Jonathan Bell’s Memoir has a number of other issue, with more detail[117]:
1/1. John 16/3/1680-10/1/1744, bacame a merchant in London

She died 31/7/1731, he remarried Elizabeth Pearson, 22/11/1733, and died 14/12/1736.

Issue from PR:
1/1. Daniel Bell. 12/12/1685.

Daniel’s birth date of 12/12/1685, comes from the Quaker testimonial, but conflicts with a record in the Pardshaw Quaker meeting, of the son, John born to John Bell of High Castle House, 16th of the 12th month 1685 (ie 16th Feb 1686). However, another birth, Sarah in 1679, looks to have been at Setmurthy, on Bassenthwaite Lake.


There are issue of John Bell, High Backhouse, Setmurthy who must be a different family from Daniel’s father, although they are recorded in the Pardshaw Meeting:
Sarah Bell, dau of John Bell of High Backhouse, Setmurthy (Bassenthwaite Lake), 5th 10th 1679. She married William Woodvill 21/11/1706 Pardshaw Quakers.
John Bell, the eldest son of John Bell of the High Backhouse in Setmurthy was born 9th of 8th 1681. Will of Jonathan Bell of Waterside, Lowswater, 1712[118].
Isaac Bell, the second son of John Bell of High Backhouse born 16th 2nd 1684.
Jonathan Bell, the 3rd son of John Bell of High Castle House born 16th 12th 1685
Thomas & Mary Bell being two twins, Thomas being the eldest son and daughters of John Bell of High Castle House, born 19th of 6th of 1688.

web site of the kinloch hotel, Argyl, in which there are several family tree files. This refers back to a 1912 short book of Family Chroniclas, by Lillian Clark for the descendacy from Jonathan Bell, b 1654.

From Roger Sharland, 8/2019:
The Bell family originate from the Cockermouth area of Cumberland. So far as the history of the family has been traced, it begins with the marriage of John Bell [1,648] on 2nd April 1651, to his wife Elizabeth [1,649], at Embleton, near Cockermouth. This couple appear to have been Congregationalists, as the only mention of them is found in the History of the Congregational Chapel at Cockermouth. Cockermouth Independent (Congregationalist) church (now the United Reformed Church) was established in 1651, meeting first in members’ houses, then, from 1687, in a converted house on The Sands. It is there stated that in 1668 the congregation met their Minister, who had been expelled under the Five Mile Act, at the house of John Bell at Embleton. At this time the congregation was suffering serious losses owing to the numbers that had joined the Society of Friends, including as seen below John and Elizabeth’s son.


Cockermouth is an ancient market town in the Borough of Allerdale in Cumbria. It is so named because it is at the confluence of the River Cocker as it flows into the River Derwent. By the 1670s, Sir Daniel Fleming could call Cockermouth ‘the best Market Towne in this part of the county’, with many fine buildings and ‘no small reputation’. Its weekly market, fortnightly cattle fairs and Whitsuntide and Martinmas hiring fairs drew custom from a wide hinterland. Water power provided by the rivers Cocker and Derwent and two major becks, drove corn and fulling mills from the 12th century. Much of the architectural core of the town remains unchanged since the basic medieval layout was filled in the 18th and 19th centuries. Embleton is a small village located east of Cockermouth, and now within the boundaries of the Lake District National Park.


John and Elizabeth had ten children. Their eldest son was Jonathan Bell [824] who was born on 1st December 1654 in Cockermouth. He was a member of the “Society of Friends” or Quakers. He married Rebecca Hall [825] of Little Broughton on 23rd May 1679 in Pardshaw Monthly Meeting, Whitehaven, Cockermouth.
Rebecca was probably the Rebekah Hall christened on 23rd February 1654 in Bridekirk, Cumberland, daughter of Richard Hall. Bridekirk is only a few miles from Cockermouth. Bridekirk church has been completely rebuilt, but the font (right is very old and distinctive. A quote about her father in Bell records reads, "he fought first for the King; then for the Commonwealth; and finally turned Quaker and gave up fighting altogether." This was almost certainly Richard Hall [1,650] of whom there is a more lengthy description in the Hall family history. Richard’s wife was called Jane [1,651]. According to an inscription on the fly-leaf of his Bible, Richard was at one time a trooper in the King’s Guards. He then changed sides and became a Roundhead during the Civil War, probably as a result of a change in his religious opinions. He was said to be in the army that besieged Cockermouth Castle , and this had an impact on his religious and political stance. He came under the influence of the Friends and himself became a Quaker as a result. There were Quakers in the Cockermouth area from early in the history of Quakerism. Richard withdrew from the Parliamentary Army and settled in Broughton, and gave the land for the Meeting House built there. The first Meeting House in Little Broughton however was not built until about 1687. Richard died in 1673, and Jane died 19 years later, in 1692.


Jonathan was Governor of Cockermouth Castle, the same as his father-in-law had besieged in the Civil War. The coloured engraving by the artists Samuel and Nathaniel Buck is titled “The North-West View of Cockermouth Castle, in the County of Cumberland”. It appears in the publication titled “A Collection of Engravings of Castles, Abbeys and Towns in England and Wales Date published 26 March 1739”. It is therefore much as the castle was at the time of Jonathan.


They lived at Hundith Hill: now a counry house hotel just south of Cockermouth (9/2019).
There is also a Hundith Hill Court (Rd) in Lorton, Virginia: this must have been an area owend by the Bells.

Hundith Hill Tithe Map, the grey area being owned by Hundith Hill Farm, Mire End showing where the hotel now stands.

Hundith Hill Farm on the 1867 OS map is simply Hundith Hill.

Jonathan died on 31st December 1721, recorded at Pardshaw Monthly Meeting[xxx]. The will of Jonathan Bell (1654-1721) of Hundith Hill, Embleton and Cockermouth Castle, is held at the Lancashire Records Office, Preston. Rebecca died on 18th September 1732, and was buried in Pardshaw. The photo on the right is the burial ground as it is today.


Jonathan and Rebecca had ten children amongst who was Daniel Bell [412] who was born on 12th December 1685 at Cockermouth. He moved to London in 1703, and soon afterwards entered into an apprenticeship. He was a prominent Minister in the “Society of Friends” , travelling to many parts of the country with the gospel. He married Elizabeth Sole [413] on 15th August 1717 in the Friends Meeting House, Witney.

Adomon to Rebecca Bell


The history of the Bell family begins so far as I have been able to trace it, on 2nd April 1651[120], when John Bell was married to his wife Elizabeth of Embleton, near Cockermouth in Cumberland.

Of the after life of this couple we know little, the only mention of them being in the ’History of the Congregational Chapel’ at Cockermouth’, in which it is stated that in 1668 the congregation met their Minister who had been exiled under the Five Mile Act on the 15th May at the house of John Bell, Embleton[121], hence we may conclude that at that date the Bells were Congregationalists.

John Bell’s house was a farm known as Hundith Hill, and is still standing being described as a very ordinary house, but evidently very old, the house and farm buildings being built in the form of an enclosed square for the purpose of defence.

John and Elizabeth Bell had a large family being as followsJBM:

1/1. Ann Bell, b. 25/12/1651
1/2. Jonathan Bell,  b. 01/12/1654, inherited paternal estate.
1/3. Elizabeth Bell, b. 02/12/1656
1/4. John b. 20/02/1658, The first of the family who came to London.

Kept a Coal Shed in Westminster.

1/5. Mary Bell, b. 08/10/1661, Married a Fisher –

had some children of whom two were named Jonathan & John the last survived his Brother, he died in 1786 aged upwards of 92 years.

1/6. Rebecca Bell, b. 28/09/1663
1/7. Daniel Bell, b. 05/10/1665,

Was a tanner at Keswick. He had two sons, one John who married and settled in Lancashire, the other David who was a cabinet maker in St Martins lane Charing Cross where he died and was buried in St Martins Church, St Martins Lane.

1/8. Hannah Bell, b. 23/12/1667

In the history of the Congregational Church already referred to, mention is made of the serious loss that befell the Congregation of the Chapel owing to the numbers that joined the Society of Friends.

Among these seceders was apparently Jonathan Bell, eldest son of John and Elizabeth, for we find that he married a lady who belonged to that body.


Part 4             

    These were the descendants of Col David Barlcay, the 1st of Urie in Kinkardinshire.
    A direct descendant was Katherine Barclay, who married Daniel Bell and whose grand daughter, Louisa married John Craven Chadwick, the first of the Canadian Chadwicks. Our line includes Priscilla Freame, another Quaker banking and commercial family, one of whom joined to form the first iteration of the bank.
     The dynasty of bankers begun by John Barclay was reinforced by several alliances with other banking families, John's grandson Robert marrying Elizabeth, daughter of Joseph Gurney, another Quaker banker. The line continued through their second son, Joseph Gurney Barclay, of Knott's Green, who married Mary, daughter of William Leatham, another banker, and then through Robert Barclay, of High Leigh, who merged twenty banks into Barclay & Company Limited, and who married Elizabeth Ellen Buxton, whose mother was a Gurney. Their eldest son, Robert Leatham Barclay, married Dorothy, daughter of Sir Robert Williams, 1st Bt, another banker. After the death of Robert Leatham Barclay in 1939, the representation of this branch of the family passed to his nephew, Theodore David Barclay, of Higham, Bury St Edmunds, and thence to his son, David William Barclay.
     A fuller history of the origins of the bank was written by Margaret Ackrill & Leslie Hannah in 2001: “Barclays, the Business of Banking 1690-1996”. The outline of this family came from “The Barclays of New York - who they are and who they are not - and some other Barclays”, 1912, New York.
Much is available in the Quaker records, which give a varied amount of detail. The Quaker Dublin wills has several relevant ones printed.
     John Barclay, brother of David (1682), became a merchant in Dublin, with issue there.
     Much of the following is from the Quaker records. Very often, men are described as, for example, a “Citizen and Draper of London”. This must mean that they were freemen of the City and a member of a Guild.

Born September 17, 1682 in Urie, Fetterose, Kincardineshire;
Parents: Robert Barclay the Apologist & Christian Mollison.

He was the only surviving son of Mr. Robert Barclay, author of the famous apology for the Quakers, and had the singular honour of receiving at his house in Cheapside three successive kings, when at their accession they favoured the city with their royal presence” (p. 168).

David Barclay left a long will of 10 pages, with extensive family details, as many of whom are in the descendacy below: some were not immediately identified, mostly nephews and nieces, probably from his wives’s sides. There were many prvisions to cover the cases of legatees dying, and many smaller bequests to other pidviduals and to various charities and Quaker meetings; a summary is in the endnotes.[123]
As summarised by the Bank of England: Will of David Barclay senior of Cheapside Linnen Draper, died possessed of Four Thousand Pounds Consolidated 4% Annuities, and by has last will and testament, dated December 2nd 1767 (with a codicil) appointed his sons David Barclay & John Barclay executors and on the 15th April 1769, probate was granted to them at Doctors Commons therefore they may dispose of the said £4000. Registered April 22nd 1769.[124]

David Barclay as a correspondent for the province (Philadalphia 16/8/1770).



(the Apologist),


2nd of Urie, the celebrated Apologist of the Quakers, who wrote the famous  Apology for the Quakers.
JBM: “...It is however chiefly as the Apologist of the Quakers that Robert Barclay is remembered. His chief work, “An Apology for the true Christian Divinity, as the same is hold forth and preached, by the people called in Scorn, Quakers, being a Full Explanation and Vindication of their Principles and Doctrines” was first published in Latin, in the beginning of 1676 and in English a couple of years later....” Jonathan Bells memoir contains a fuller description of him.

From LDS.
Born December 23, 1648 in Gordonstoun, Morayshire;
Died October 03, 1690 in Urie, Fetterose, Kincardineshire.
Parents (ref EMC): Col David Barclay of Urie, co. Kincardine, Catherine Gordon, married in 1648. (a history of Barclay's Bank gives most of the family line of the Freames and Barclays).

The Governor of East Jersey, New Jersey and Quaker Apologist

Married February 01, 1669/70 in Bailie Molyson's House, Aberdeen, her Father’s house, Christian, daughter of Gilbert Molleson, Baillie of Aberdeen and Margaret, his wife, and grand-daughter of Thomas Molleson of LauchintullyJBM.



Born 1647 in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire;
Died February 14, 1722/23 in Urie, Kincardine.
Parent: Gilbert & Margaret Mollison.

Much of this comes fom “The Barclays of New York : who they are and who they are not, and some other Barclays”: it seems to agree with the parish recods, except that the earlier dates are adrift by 2 months: the Quaker records change the year at the end of February. Some have the month in brackets, but others just the month number.

JBM: “...This lady is said to have been a Member of the Society of Friends before her marriage, and was in every way a worthy helpmeet for her husband. A friend, writing of her in 1694 says: “I observed that when her children were up in the morning and dressed, she sat down with them before breakfast, and in a religious manner waited upon the Lord: which pious care and motherly instruction of her children, when young, doubtless had its desired effect upon them; for as they grew in years, they also grew in knowledge of the blessed Truth; and since that time some of them have become public preachers thereof.”
“According to Testimony of the Monthly Meeting of Ury, “she was a well accomplished woman every way, and of singular virtues, which she improved to the praise of the Lord. She was an excellent Mother, a kind and helpful friend to the poor and sick among her neighbours, and was universally lamented when she died on the 14th day of the 12th month, 1723, in the 76th year of her age.”

He succeeded to Ury on his father’s death in 1797 and was widely known for his extraordinary powers of walking.

BARCLAY ALLARDICE, Robert (1732-97), of Urie, Kincardine[130]

This Member was the great-grandson of Robert Barclay, the Quaker ‘Apologist’ and colonizer of East New Jersey, and was connected by kinship and marriage with a number of wealthy London merchant families including Barclays the brewers. By his second marriage he acquired large estates and additional interest in Kincardineshire and Aberdeen Burghs,2 and thereafter was known as Barclay Allardice of Urie and Allardice. ‘Possessed of an enterprising spirit and extensive knowledge in agriculture, which he acquired by reading ... and by his own observations in the different tours which he made on foot in his younger years through Scotland and a great part of England’, he was a pioneer of the new farming methods in the county. A popular and philanthropic landlord, he laid out a new village adjoining Stonehaven, and during the famine of 1783 organized ‘a benevolent society for purchasing meal and grain to be retailed at an underprice’. In 1785 his wife’s claim for recognition as heir of line to her ancestor the Earl of Airth and Menteith, was successful and thereafter Barclay’s ‘great object’ was to secure the peerage for his family.

In 1788 Barclay was returned with the support of Henry Dundas, and voted with Pitt on the Regency bill. He is not known to have spoken in the House.
Barclay Allardice, who used his influence in Aberdeen Burghs to help oust the Whig sitting Member in 1790, retained his own seat for Kincardineshire without opposition until his death. He continued to give apparently silent support to government and voted, as predicted, against the relief of Scotsmen from the Test Act, 10 May 1791, and against the abolition of the slave trade, 15 Mar. 1796. He was a defaulter ordered to attend the House, 24 Nov. 1795.

His consuming interest was in the development and application of scientific agricultural techniques: he was described as ‘the first, the most extensive, and judicious systematic improver of land in the north of Scotland’. In his domestic life he preserved the Quaker traditions of his ancestors. His granddaughter recalled him as very cheerful, orderly, active, acute as a man of business, and most kindly in his consideration and thought for the welfare and happiness of all about him. He gave his charity in a benevolent, considerate and business way ... and supplied the want kindly, beneficently yet not lavishly, with a completeness that showed his pleasure in giving, yet with an orderly economy.

Barclay Allardice, who founded the town of Stonehaven, died 8 Apr. 1797.

4.3    Col DAVID BARCLAY - 1610


David Barclay, 1st of Urie (b 1610)[138]
Parents: David & Elizabeth (Livingstone) Barclay
m, 26/1/1648, Katherine Gordon, b 11/1/1621, d 3/1663 (dau of Sir Robert Gordon, 1st Bart of Gordonstoun)
Buried: 12/10/1686.[139]

Col. David Barclay was the son of David Barclay (1580–1660), 11th of Mathers, of Kincardineshire, Scotland and Elizabeth Livingstone, daughter of John Livingston of Dunipace.

Colonel David Barclay, who served with distinction under Gustavus Adolphus, King of Sweden, and, on his return home, attained the rank of Colonel during the great civil war. went to Germany in 1626 to make his fortune as a soldier. He rose to the rank of Major in the army of the King of Sweden, during the Thirty Years War. However, in 1636 he returned to Scotland to fight in the covenanting army, “ got a regiment of horse, became colonel, dislodged and routed Montrose 1646, relieved Inverness, made governor of Strathbogie ; after the battle of Preston he was deprived of all employments by Cromwell, represented Forfarshire and Kincardineshire (Angus and Meam) 1654-6, 1656-8, imprisoned in Edinburgh Castle about 1664, joined the Society of Friends, then called Quakers, in 1666, imprisoned in Aberdeen 21 March, 1676, “ for going to worship contrary to law,” and again the year following[140].
In 1647 he purchased the lands and barony of Urie from William, 7th Earl Marischal.

Originally the estate belonged to the Frasers, then the Hays starting in 1413, but eventually became the property of the Earl Marischal.
Ury House is a large ruined mansion in Aberdeenshire, Scotland, built in the Elizabethan style in 1885 by Sir Alexander Baird, 1st Baronet. It is situated on the north-east coast about 1 mile (1.6 km) north of Stonehaven in the former county of Kincardineshire.
Colonel David Barclay purchased Urie in a lengthy process in the late 1660s and his descendants owned it through 1854 when the estate was purchased by the Baird family.(source Clan Barclay and newspaper archives Stonehaven). The second laird was his son, Robert Barclay the Quaker apologist. It descended to Robert Barclay Allardice (MP) (1732-1797) and then to his son Captain Barclay, the celebrated pedestrian.

On 26 January 1648, he married Katherine Gordon (1621–1663), daughter of Sir Robert Gordon, 1st Baronet, MP (1580–1656), founder of the Gordonstoun estate, and Louisa Gordon of London, on December 24, 1647 in Kincardine. Katherine was a third cousin of Charles I.[2]

By Katherine he had two daughters, Lucy and Jean, and three sons, Robert, John, and David.

Part 5             

     The Freame family of Gloucestershire were were local land owners (Manor of Nether Lypiatt) and in the cloth trade in the 17thC and 18thC, and owned mills in the Stroud area, which are described in The Origins of the Cloth Mills of the Stroud Valley[141]. Bigland’s MI of Gloucestershire has a number on inscriptionsFMP. An early member would have been Thomas Freame, esq of Lypiatt, buried Bisley, January 1659[142].

     A summary mainly comes from a life of Francis Galton, a Freame descendant.[143]
     The Freames spring from Robert Freame of Cirencester[xxxi]. The pedigree illustrates the three stages, yeomanry, town traders, and ultimately mercantile houses. Thus the brothers Robert and John of Aldgate were grocers, but John was a goldsmith as well. John Freame of Bushhill, Edmonton, married Priscilla Gould, and his sister Hannah married Thomas Gould, probably her brother. Of Robert Freame's children by his first wife the most interesting is Thomas, who went to Philadelphia. He married in 1725 Margaret Penn-daughter of William Penn by his second wife Hannah Callowhill of Bristol-and their daughter, Philadelphia Hannah Freame, became Viscountess Cremorne. It was into the business of the Freames, and' indeed into their very household, that David Barclay of Ury came, when he walked up to London. Like the apprentice of romance, but at a much later age, he married his master’s daughter Priscilla. In conjunction with his brother-in-law, Joseph Freame, the business was developed into a large banking and mercantile firm[xxxii]. Lucy Barclay, the great-grandmother of Sir Francis Galton, was a child of this marriage.
     But the Freame and Barclay intermarriages are by no means thus exhausted. Sarah Freame, Priscilla’s sister, married David Barclay’s son James, by his first wife, Ann Taylor. James Barclay and Sarah Freame had three children, two sons who left no issue and a daughter Anne, who married James Allardyce. Their daughter, Sarah Anne Allardyce, was the second wife of Robert Barclay (1731—1797) and mother of Captain Robert Barclay Allardyce (the pedestrian, and last Robert Barclay of Ury) and of Margaret Barclay, Mrs Hudson Gurney, the great-aunt, and kind hostess to Francis Galtons sisters and himself. Robert, Margaret and Lucy Barclay, who married Samuel Galton, were thus directly half brothers and sisters, but in addition their mothers were granddaughter and great-granddaughter of David Barclay of Cheapside, and granddaughter and great-granddaughter of John Freame of Lombard Street! Captain Barclay, the pedestrian, and Mrs Hudson Gurney were thus much closer in blood than great - uncle and great-aunt to Francis Galton[xxxiii]. Lastly another sister of Priscilla Freame, Mary, married Thomas Plumstead of London, and their daughter Priscilla married James Farmer of Bingley, the partner ln Birmingham of Samuel Galton, the first. Their daughter in turn became the wife of Charles Lloyd, who was the managing partner of a large Birmingham bank. Thus Priscilla Farmer and Lucy Barclay were cousins, and this no doubt brought Lucy Barclay the second into touch with Samuel Galton, and led to their marriage. According to a memorandum of Samuel Galton, he met Lucy Barclay at Hertford in 1776 for the first time, and married her in Oct. 1777, shortly after his mother, Mary Farmers death. The pedigree (Plate C at the end of this volume), in which a very large number of collaterals are omitted, will serve to elucidate the complex relations of Freames, Barclays, Farmers and Galtons. Thus Samuel Tertius Galton was second cousin to Hudson Gurney, and Sir Francis himself great-nephew to Mrs Hudson Gurney, Margaret Barclay, the sister of the pedestrian! It will be seen how the Freames, if not among the persecuted Quakers, were associated with some of the most industrious, zealous and noteworthy of the Quaker Stocks.


Footnote to an earlier paragraph:
On the other hand David Barclay of Youngsbury, Tertius Galton's great-uncle, who had come into the possession of £10,000 of slaves for a business debt, carried them to New York, taught them crafts and then, when they could maintain themselves, emancipated them. This David Barclay (see Plate XXII) was one of the finest characters of his time, a true humanitarian And a worthy descendant of the Apologist.

Bigland’s MI on Findmypast[145]

John Freame was born in Cirencester the son of Robert Freame. In 1683 he was apprenticed to Job Bolton, a quaker goldsmith based in Lombard Street. Upon completion of his apprenticeship he went into partnership with Thomas Gould, a fellow quaker. Located in a part of the city where 25% of the population were Quakers they were able to build up their reputation - and their business particularly amongst their co-religionists. The partners soon became more connected as John married Priscilla, Thomas' sister, while Thomas married Hannah, John's sister.
At 21 he had completed his rigorous seven year apprenticeship and earned his spurs as a 'freeman' of the city of London. He had a trusted partner Thomas Gould, also a Quaker and freeman of the city. This famed partnership predated the 1694 launch of the Bank of England and lasted in various forms until 1896.
In 1728, Freame moved to the present site in Lombard Street at the sign of the Black Spread Eagle. The business expanded over the years and other properties in Lombard Street were acquired. The banking partnership chose 54 Lombard Street as their official address, but the sign of that house - the bible - was thought to be inappropriate as a sign for a Quaker business, so they adopted the Spread Eagle sign over the extended premises.

AN UNPUBLISHED MANUSCRIPT OF A QUAKER PREACHER, FRIEND OF WILLIAM PENN, FOUNDING FATHER OF PENNSYLVANIA, WHOSE SON MARRIED PENN'S DAUGHTER, MARGARET. 57 pages. Bound in Contemporary full calf, gilt, with red title label to spine. An interesting and poignant memorial written by her widower Robert Freame, of Cirencester stock but lately of London, for their five children "that you may retain a lively and sensible remembrance of her virtuous and religious life". Robert first gives a short account of Anne's life, that she was devout from the age of twelve and began preaching at the age of fifteen, encouraged by eminent Quaker friends such as William Penn, Charles Marshall and Francis Stamper. She travelled the country preaching, visiting almost all of the English counties as well as Wales, and was well received. At the age of 24, she married Robert and together they had nine children, of which five survived. She appears to have been a quite remarkable woman who successfully balanced a family life with preaching and travelling............ "As she was earnest and diligent in this her spiritual service, she was mindful and willing to return home when her service was over". Anne had been a sickly child, and she contracted cold from laying in damp sheets whilst on a trip to the north of England. Robert then gives a detailed account of her death-bed scene and sayings. She is visited by William Penn, who she refers to as "the General and his Wife, whom I have often thought on with Pity for his Affliction:- The Lord comfort him, and give him patience.

PART 6            Barclays Bank

Part 6             


Barclays Bank and its Quaker roots[146]


The international bank Barclays can trace its origins back to 1690 when John Freame and his brother in law Thomas Gould, both Quakers, started to trade as goldsmiths in Lombard Street in London. Both of them were well respected by their professions, and were freemen of the City of London.

In those days cash deposits were often placed with goldsmiths, and the receipts they issued began to be used as money. Freame and Gould gradually became bankers because of this. Their partnership predates the foundation of the Bank of England.

As John had served an apprenticeship in metalworking he understood the metal mining business, so one of their first banking activities was to finance the London Lead Company, along with fellow Quaker Edward Wright, in 1704. (and Daniel Bell, snr)

Lombard Street had become the centre of early banking, and in 1728 Gould and Freame moved to larger premises at number 54. At that time most people could not read or write, so in accordance with the order that had been made by the City Council of London “that shopkeepers shall hang out signs at theire shopps” they marked the bank with a sign.  When they acquired 54 Lombard Street the sign was a Bible, which they thought inappropriate, so they took as their symbol a black spread eagle, shown in the picture.  A form of this eagle is still in use today.  John’s son Joseph Freame now took a more active role in the bank.  John became a director and leading shareholder in the London Lead Company.

The name Barclay became associated with the business in 1736 when James Barclay, who had married John Freame’s daughter Sarah, became a partner in the business.  The Barclay and Freame families were already closely connected. James was the son of David Barclay and his first wife Ann. When Ann died in 1723 David married John Freame’s elder daughter Priscilla. So James Barclay’s stepmother was also his sister-in-law. The bank became known as Freame and Barclay.  The name of the bank changed several times in the next few years as new partners joined the bank.

When Joseph Freame, son of John Freame, died in 1766, two sons of his sister Priscilla and David Barclay, named David and John, inherited shares in the bank through their mother.  They had been working in their father’s linen business but wished to disassociate themselves because they were opposed to slavery.  They were content to become partners in the bank and to work there.  The bank was renamed in 1776 as Barclay, Bevan and Bening.  It was a prosperous bank and helped to finance the building of canals, bridges and other enterprises.

The British economy was thriving partly because of stable financial institutions, but also due to the lucrative slave trade.  In Liverpool merchants involved in the slave trade formed Heywoods Bank which used Barclay, Bevan and Bening as their London agents and later became part of Barclays Bank. Thus the bank became indirectly involved in financing the slave trade, despite the reservations of the Quaker partners about financing slavery. Other partners were content with this.   At that time the Bank of England was also heavily involved in providing finance for the slave trade.

Barclays Bank helped to finance the Stockton and Darlington Railway in the 1820’s. This was the first public railway to use steam locomotives and had a major impact on the transport of goods and later also passengers. 

Barclays Bank had several other business partners and went through a number of name changes.  In 1896 several other Quaker families involved in banking, such as Gurney and Backhouse, formed the nucleus of the twenty private banking firms that joined forces to form Barclay and Company Limited.  Very few of the people involved in the amalgamation, with the exception of the Backhouse family, were practising Quakers.  Most of the partners had slowly drifted away from the simple lifestyle of their Quaker predecessors, but they found it advantageous to preserve the Quaker image of trustworthiness, frugality and prudence.

I have just received a transcript of their marriage certificate, which shows the marriage being 'dissolved' on 11th February 1978. I'm therefore not sure of your death source. Cheers, Doug.

Edward Cecil William Mockler was born on June 24, 1893 in Ireland. He entered the service of The Canadian Bank of Commerce in August 1912. Enlisting in August 1914 from the Humbolt, Saskatchewan branch, he joined the 9th Canadian Battalion and was later transferred to the 1st Canadian Battalion. Mockler fought at Langemarck and the Second Battle of Ypres in 1915. He was severely wounded during the first German gas attack at Ypres and succumbed to those wounds on May 7, 1915.

Excerpt from his obituary:

With sincere sorrow we chronicle the sad death of this promising young soldier who died in the military hospital, Cambridge, on 7th (May) from wounds received in battle in France on 23rd of April. He belonged to the first Canadian Regiment.

From the particulars we have been able to obtain it appears that, on account of his knowledge of the French language, he was taken by his commanding officer on a special mission in the carrying out of which they had to cross the enemy's line of fire, and had only covered about five hundred yards when the Major fell mortally wounded. The gallant young soldier, immediately in the face of a storm of shot and shell, went to the assistance of his officer, who on point of death, ordered him to go on.

In obedience he resumed his perilous journey, but had not gone far when he received what turned out to be his death wound - a shrapnel charge in the back, which penetrated a lung. To avoid further injuries, he threw himself down on the ground but did not escape other wounds of a more or less serious character, as well as the gas which had been directed against the French lines which he was trying to reach, and which caused the French to break away.

After crawling inch by inch for about six hours he succeeded in reaching his own lines, and although suffering awful agony he got into the ambulance unassisted, and was conveyed to the base. Passing through four hospitals, always on a stretcher, he eventually arrived at Cambridge at midnight on the 1st [of May]. Here he lingered until Friday last when he passed away, having received every care and attention from the hospital staff.

MOCKLER, Lance Corporal Edward Cecil William. Born in Ballinderry on the 24.6.1893 he was educated at the local school. At the aged of 13 he won an Incorporated Society’s exhibition which entitled him to three years free education at Dundalk Institution. A second exhibition gave him two more years and residence at Mountjoy School in Dublin. On completing his education he emigrated to Canada, against the advice of his principal who wanted him to go to Trinity. Having secured a post with the Canadian Bank of Commerce he sailed for Montreal in July 1912 and lived in Humboldt, Saskatchewan for two years before joining up at Valcartier Camp, Quebec on the 22.9.14 aged 21 years and 3 months. A single man, he had no previous military experience, was 5’ 8½” inches tall, of a dark complexion with blue eyes and dark hair, he had a scar on the left side of his head. After training at Valcartier he served in 1 CI WOR (I8822) being posted first to Salisbury and then to the Western Front in late march or early April 1915. He died in the military hospital in Cambridge on the 7.5.15 age 21 from wounds received at Langemarck near Ypres on the 22 or 23 April. Because of his knowledge of French, he had been asked by Major Kimmins to accompany him to the French lines. On their way there Kimmins was killed and Mockler hit in the back by shrapnel which punctured his lung. Although he took cover, he was hit several more times as well as being exposed to the gas which the Germans had released on the French. It took him six hours to crawl back to his own lines from where he was taken back to base, eventually arriving in hospital in Cambridge late on the 1 May. His father was able to visit him in hospital before his death and had his remains brought home on Sunday the 9th for burial on Tuesday 11th. The son of Edward Mockler of Fruithill, Rose Lane Ends, Ballinderry, Co. Antrim who sat on the Lisburn Board of Guardians, he is buried in the family plot in Ballinderry Middle Church Cemetery, Ballinderry. According to a report of the funeral in the Standard, “There was a large number present and it was evident from the tear-brimmed eyes seen on all sides that the deceased was held in very high esteem in the neighbourhood in which he was born and reared. Numerous wreaths were sent by relatives and friends.” There is no headstone inscription. A separate headstone records the death of Alice Maud Mockler on the 28.4.1895 and Thomas McCleavy Mockler on the 26.10.1922. A Miss Mockler of Ballinderry is also recorded in the Belfast News Letter of 4.7.16 as a contributor to comforts sent out to soldiers in 11 RIR in the first half of 1916.

The events in which Mockler was involved were described by John McCleland a Dunmurry man who was also serving in the CEF. In a letter home to a friend in the village he wrote, “I expect you have heard all about our heavy casualty list. We got it good and hard while it lasted, but I might tell you we gave quite as much as we got until the Germans started shelling with the poison gas fumes. I could fill quite a few sheets of writing paper with what I came through from April 22nd up until the morning of the 24th when I got hit and half poisoned as well. We made two charges with fixed bayonets. I came through the two charges without a scratch, but three hours later I was giving a wounded comrade a drink and I got it good with a large chunk of shrapnel in the shoulder fracturing some of the bones; but the gas is worse than their biggest shells. The Germans did their best to break through our lines, but all efforts failed. They even drove the French Algerians out of their position, and that’s where we lost so many in recapturing the lost ground. We lost very heavily but we saved the situation. To tell you proper, if they had got through and crossed safely over the Yser canal there would have been nothing to prevent them being in Calais”. It is not clear whether John McClelland survived the war or not. There are a number of casualties with that name in the Commonwealth War Graves Commission register but it is impossible to say whether he is one of them. As for Major A. E. Kimmins, the CWGC records that he died on the 24 April 1915. He has no known grave and is commemorated on the Menin Gate Memorial.

Letter from D. Horner to Daniel Bell (prob 1685-1758)

Dated Leeds, 20th August 1744

Dear and Worthy ffrd. D. Bell,

Thy acceptable Letter I recd. in course and was very glad to Bear of thy Getting well Home and found all to thy satisfaction perticularly Reflection upon thy late journey gave thee so much Peace, the Result of Discharging our Dutys Faithfully in our Great and Good Masters Service. And as I am satisfied it will remain Comfortable and Incouraging to thyself, so I am persuaded it is to many more and that thy affectionate visitt and labours of Love will not be Easely forgotten, For indeed and sweetly revived the days of our youth and the love of our Espousalls which in a good degree ( I hope ) United to our Cheifest Beloved, the Lord our God, and one unto another, and may we not say of a truth that Love waxeth not old, May I am in my smal measure a Witness of that flowings of it in many oppertunitys we had together, and at this present time makes me willing to take pen in Hand and scribble a little though Im but poorly in Health at psent, I am my ffrd really sorry for ye acct thou gives abt Rombelone and ye two poor women I wish some means could be found out to keep such at Home. I find theyr Quite weary of Betty Smith in Ireland, and have agreed to appoint her no more Meetings. I suppose thou hast heard that Jno haslara is returned Home from His American journey and in pretty good Health. His acots of his travills and remarks was highly acceptable to us in our last 2rly meeting, Sam Hopwwood came with Him and is on his way for London. As thou requested I must give thee some acot of ye meeting at Armley which often thou wast gone gave the a great deall of pain of mind, for I heard the People were much disappointed so I ventured to let ffrds give them notioe that Bro Longmire and self wd be there at a meet: on first Day afternoon following, which we did wth our ffrds on that side And Abundance of Sober tender people attended the ffrds thought above 500, and mostly Methodists it was ( I think ) a solled open time, and we came home very easey and left them Inquiring wn we wd goe again , that in­deed It was sorry my ffrds thou missed so much satisfaction as I believe thou would have found amongst yrs. What will be the consequence of things I can't tell, But Certainly there is a Devine Hand at Work amongst the people, and many are seeking Savation to yr souls - Amongst ye Externalls of Worship who I humbly Hope will in time be Brought to find it at Home and be made to Retire to ys Gifts of God in themselves. I must confess I find my love and good desires Increase towards these peoples and I never meet wth ‘em ( as we frequently did at one opportunity or other ) But I find a degree of ye Gospell spring to roll towards them.

The Young woman thou mentions is gone to Robt Bells to live. I am oblidged to ye, for thy readiness to serve me abt ye Cloth in R. Bells Hand, And as thou hasst ( I presume ) An Interest in S. Fledger I wish could persuade Him to goe buy then theyr good Goods and Cheaps and tho‘ find He can dispose of them I doubt not to advantage If he pleases; Bros and Sister Longmire are not got home from Kendall where they have been some weeks. Mr Dear Mother and Sister are thro‘ mercy pretty well And Join with me in the sallutation of Dear Love to thy self and thine all.
I am thy affect Sr

My dear friend, I hope by this time thou art got well home with the fruit of true peace in thy Bosom, a return sufficient for thy labours of love in the Gospel which were considerable to the comfort and satisfaction of many, an I am sure of my self in particular I thought it a seasonable visit & at a time of renewing our old acquaintance & receiving our unity as also refreshing our spirits once more – I was very glad I met with thee at Newcastle to take our solemn leave of each other for it is some question with me whether we shall meet again till we meet in Clear Triumphant where the weary tested and afflicted travellers rest from their labours, & I shall rejoice in peace for ever which happy end I do at times hope. For to my great R?? ?? this hope has helped my over many mountains an through divers straits difficulties and hard test.....
I have walked in the shadow of death for several days...

James Wilson Anne Hyam and her daughters with Eliz. Holliwell all very acceptable to us the London freinds were Good Examples and has left a sweet Savour behind them. I hope the young cupple are right joined together in the fear of God who that Day seemed to own them with a Visitation of his tendering bowing power, may they keep under it is my Disir, Dear Daniel through mercy I am in health I hope both as to the inward and outward man tho not without constant execises yet do hope it will all work together for Good in the End. I shall be Glad if thou hast freedom to receive a line from thee now and then as leasure will permitt while we stay in this frail state of life. and let me know how thou faires and how things are among you and whether thou willt Endeavour to find out another meet help to comfort thee in thy age. pray strive not for money but a virtueous woman of a sweet friendly Disposition and Good natural temper.

Dr & Worthy Friend                                    Bristol, 10 mo 7th 1747
Danl Bell
I salute thee with unfeigned love, thine of the 3 inst also of 15th 6mo past – came in course. I was out of Town when the former came to hand.. and have been pretty much so since...the contents of both I have seriously considered much to my satisfaction ... a line from thee will at all times be very acceptable.
My family much as usual... I have had a troublesome cold attended by a hoarsness some time past... but I hope is wearing off.
I suppose thee hast heard of he removal of our friends Dnl Kilb... Jos James and the widow Husdy.
We have been favoured with the company of several friends within three months past but now no strangers in Town... Richard Hepsley of Somersetshire, is lately landed safe from a visit to Ireland where his service was vey acceptable to Friends and much to his satisfaction, he had a very tempestous and hazardous passage.
I have heard and hope it is true that a fresh visitation has of late appeared amongst many people and the love of Truth and Regard to its Life and Power increases ... ay it continue and a much farther improvement be experienced is my sincere desire... yet I doubt there are too may that hath more regard to the Forme than the substance...where that is the case, its to be feared the Forme will decrease also in those that are strangers to the Life and Power.
I have has some conversation with Kinswoman Eliz Hanbury relating thy son, but as affairs now stand, it donot appear with so likely a prospect as where is now is if anything farther accurs, I intend to advise it communicated the love as desired... although absent in person, I am near in that love that distance of place cannot separate.
My sons and many others join me with Dr love aso full and family,
Thy assured friend Rich Chamming?

 daniell bell, dear friend,

in the love of truth my spouse joyning wlth me we clearly salute thee, fervently desiring, as we have often done since we parted with thee, that our great and good master in whom all sufficiency is, may preserve thee, and grant a suitable degree of strength of body and fortitude of mind, to go through that servise thou art engaged in, to the glory of god, thy own peace, and the Edification and comfort of the churches where thou myst come, but thy long Experience of the Goodness of God to his own faithfull Servants renders it unnecessary to say much in that Head -

I did think it would not he unacceptable to give thee some Account of the yearly Meeting. - it was very large, and continued so to the end,- and the Affairs of the churches were carryed on and managed, in solidity and meekness, without Jarr or Contention, and much to the Satisfaction and Comfort of the Brethren, that I think it may be truly send the great and good Master of our Assemblies precendent in that Meeting, which occasioned many to Rejoyce in His loving kindness. -

through the mercy of providence i was enabled to attend constantly from the beginning of the Meeting to the end and according to the accounts we had the Publick Meetings were generaly large, and pretty weil conducted; since the Meetings were generaly large, and pretty weil conducted, since the Meeting ended, which was on sixth day Evening and a Publiok appointed next morning i have been surely afflicted with my Old Distemper the Cholick, ever since that time, and not yet got clear of it, which has weakened me much, other Friends here are generaly well; We have now no Strangers in London except Elizabeth Marriot and jane huskins, the latter intends to leave us nent week. her companion is gone alone to kent; the last time I see thy son jonathan they were well at tottenham; so with dear love from me and mine i conclude, and an, Thy Old truly loving Friend, John bell.

ps before i had sealed up this thy acceptuble letter from scarborough came to my hand, and i was glad to find thou was invoured with heulth and Strength to go on in thy Service, which i hope will be continued.  the few lines when york Quarterly Meeting is over would be very empty my dear love to R. Shackleton and, his, jonathan white and his, any other Friends that may enquire of me - the ollives, loves is to thee farewell. -

Letter from Iydia Lancaster to Daniel Bell

Dated Lancaster 6th November 1756.

Dear Friend,

Thine last week I received which was very acceptable and the more so as it was wrote with thy own hand, that indeed is more than a little admirable that a person of thy age should recover such strength after having lost it so many yrs but we see all things are possible with God who gives and takes as he pleatheth for his own glory and the increase of our faith and trust in him, who hath all Power. I am glad thou art favoured with good health and strength to travel about as in the morning of thy day to be sure it must afford both thee and thy ffriends gt joy and satisfaction. yet those who oannot do so (are-added) attended with ye heart warming influence of divine virtue at Home, and truely acceptable to their ffriends there.

Have also much Reason to be both content and thankful. through mercy I must enjoy a good degree of health which can scarce be enough valued but I (--) not much to say of traveling abroad not being required thereto, nor free to move much without a degree of necessity, friends here of thy acquaintance are all as well as ussuial for ought I know thy niece direy beging to look brgith(sic) upon us again but they are all well as can be expected. I delivered thyn love to them and many more who all acknowledge with the return of theirs, which I disir thee to aceept in the Wholesale way. and may say that upon the whole I hope truth gains ground among us in our meeting which dos not only much increase in number but in a religous concern As I think does our love one to another. I am much joined in Heart to friends here as I also have reason to believe thy are to me in every general way. I am sorry to hear Mr. Putts is but poorly, if he should be removed it will seemingly be a great loss. But we have need to be a resigned people in all things to ye Divine will. my heart is often heavy in the remembrance of London, Heaven only knows how things will turn out there and everywhere.

I sincerely wish we may all be prepared steady on such abuttance as will stand all tryals. I notte thy kind request of seing me once more there but I also hope and disir with submission to the divine will that I never shall be seen there any more, being for ought I know clear yea fully clear there labouring at and about home appears to be my proper work yet the spreadings of Gospel love is many times as open free and extensive as ever in my heart. but thou knows that every one has but their time and season to every purposs and for ought I find the little erants alotted me to run abt was done in their season for which I do not want my reward. I have been long in writing - for which I have thought to drop that part except when found it matter of duty being old and bad at it. also my acquaintance is so large it would (be-added) almost impossible for me to answer all the letters I receive, so hope thou and others will excuse me for that deficencey and take the will for the deed my dear Love salutes thy sister Bell and thy children also my beloved friends D. and G. Barclay and with much regard to thyself remains thy real and rauch obliged friend,

Letter from Frances Dodshan to Frances Bell
Dated Durham 4th November 1760
My Dear Friend,

I’m much afraid my long silence since I rec'd thy last truly acceptable letter should give thee some uneasy apprehensions on my acct. for indeed I’ve oft been displeased with my self when I’ve recollected how long I've been silent to thee and my worthy Friend P. Barclay, but realy such has been the case with me of late that notwithstanding I’ve several times attempted to write my mind has been so uncommonly restricted in that respect that I found I Could not write with satisfaction; but least my dear Frd. shd be uneasy on my accot. ( as above hinted)

I was resolved to set Pen to Paper tho’ it were but just to let thee know how. I fare; I am thro’ mercy considering my circumstance full as well as I could expect tho’ since I grew Big frequently attended with a pain and weakness in my right hip and thigh wch sometimes renders me incapable of Walking over the Room without help yet have been hitherto enabled to get to Mee­tings tho’ with considerable difficulty; but thro the goodness of Providence my mind is made in a good degree heayy and reconciled to my present Situation as well as resigned to the future disposal of the Divine Will Concerning me wch I esteem a great favour and hope am truly thankfull for it as well as for the many Blessings I and mine are favoured with I was much concerned to hear of the Death of Robt. Plumstead as well as that of thy Cousin Oxley, they both being likely to be very serviceable in their Stationes but providence knows best how to effect the purpose of his unerring Will, nor is it fit for us poor short sighted mortals to call in question his Dispensations usward or so muoh as to say, What doest thou! I can assure my dr. ffrd it is no small Probation with me to be tried as I’ve been of late and am likely still to be, if my life be spared; yet far be it from me to Reprove He who has hitherto been my Ebenezer and helped thro’ many Tribulations is still all sufficient; in whom I trust come life or come Death.

I was much pleased to hear thou had been favoured with the Company of our dear and worthy frd. Sophia Hume to whom please to remember my very dear Love and tell her I much regrett the long silence that has subsisted between her and me and have several times thot of writing to renew so eduifying and desirable a correspondence but did not certainly know how to direct to her; shd therefore be very glad of a letter from her. I wish thou may be able to read this I would have transcribed it over again but am grown so bad at stooping that writing is become at psent a sort of painfull exercise to me.

My Dear Husband and Children are thro’ mercy pretty well he joins with me in the renwed sallutation of ünfeigned Love to thee thy son and Daughter in wch I am,

Thy truly Affectionate Friend,

Frances Dodshon

7.3.2      Daniel Bell in North America

Letter from Daniel Bell junior to his father Daniel Bell

Dated June 1777

My Dear Father,

Being convinced of the Satisfaction it will afford my Friends in general and my own Family in particular to hear of my Arrival in America I am unwilling to omit any opportunity by which they can possibly reoeive that Intelligence and shall therefore forward this letter by Capt. Millyin to NewYork as there may probably be a conveyance to England from that port earlier than Quebec; I sent a few Lines by a Vessel that we met on the Banks of Newfoundland giving you an account of the very disagreeable Passage we had so far; since that time the Weather has been more favourable and we are now in the River St. Lawrence abt 20 Legs from the Isle of Bic ( he place for destination) on our arrival there we must go on board another Ship to reach Quebec wch is abt 50 Leags distant (the Blonde being ordered to New York to join Ld Howe instead of going to Quebec) - Till within these few days we have had one continued severe Gale of Wind from the Time of our departure from England, which has made our passage more disagreeable than a person who has never been at Sea can possibly conceive, our Style of Life has been thoroughly uncomfortable, in the morning we would attempt to Breakfast perhaps as soon as we were seated the Cups and Saucers would be all thrown into our Laps, from that to dinner we endeavour to read, walk the Deck and employ ourselves in recovering from our Fall, of wch we have had some very bad ones, at Dinner our meat was frequently in our Laps as in our Mouthes till we contrived to make the servants set to Seeward and hold their dishes instead of placing them on a table : One day Mrs. Caldwell and myself were thrown over the Backs of our Chairs on our Heads,

Mrs. C fortunately fell on a Bed wch was spread on the Floor, and therefore received no Injury. I fell on the Gun but without any bust, indeed I was lucky in meeting with no great Injury once I broke a small piece of a Tooth another time as I was pouring out a Glass of Wine I was thrown with the Bottle and Glass out of my Chair agt the Bayonets wch hang upon the Side of the Ship and cut my hand in 2 or 3 places. - the good Company of Col Caldwell’s Family and the Civility of Capt Hillyes have so much at abates(?) the Rigor of this Confinement and unpleasant Situation. Our passage has been so remarkably rough and boisterous, our Ship so sickly and many occurences so thoroughly distressing and disagreeable that if we get safe back to our native land I am sure it must be a great Temptation that will induce sny of our Party to venture a second time to cross the Atlan­tic; on Saturday 31st May two Strange Ships were seen, when Signal was made to chase, the Drum beat to Arms and every Man ordered to Quarters, it being 4 oclock in the Morning wee suddenly changed the pleasure of Tranquility and Sleep to the preparation for engageing but on coming up with the vessells they proved to be our Friends; they having mistaken to make the proper Signal gave us every reason to expect a different Tirmination to this Affair; we had another Alarm a few days since, by hearing a continued Canonading and having great Reason to suppose one of our own Fleet was engaged with a privateer but on our bearing down to them we had the Mortification to find they were celebrating the King’s Birth day; the Alacrity of the people and the Expertness of stowing every Thing away when a Ship

The musquitoes ( a kind of fly ) are a horrid Tax upon travelling in this Country. they sting thro leather and they are so venemous that the wound they make swells surprisingly, there was a man so stung the other day that he was blind and kept his Bed a week. They are thousand (times - added) more venemous than the Flies are at Stamford Hill in the Middle of July; I have hitherto been very fortunate as they have taken an antipathy to me and keep away from me wch is a very uncommon thing for a stranger.

I am stopped in my career of writing by a letter I have just received from Quebec wch informs me that some Ships are going to England. I must forward my letters immediately as several vessels sail together. I have only time by the others to write a line to say that I arrived safe and am well lest the vessell wch carries this should fall into hands of the provincials.

Adieu, Accept a large share of affection. give my Dear love to my Father, Betsey Lucy, Charlotte Becky, Chrissy Jonathan and Caroline and believe me wth every sentiment of Regard and Affection.

Yr dutyfull son,

D. Bell.

I dsire my Father to give my last remembrance to any of my Friends he may see, but particularly to Mr. and Mrs. Kendall Mr. and Mrs Townsend Mr. Grindall Mr. Wyburd I shall soon write to him Mr. and Mrs. Headington the Gentlemen of the Club the Dickenson Mr. and Mrs. Smith ( ?)

Montreal  Ist July 1777


To                  Bell from her son Daniel Bell

Dated 14th June 1777

My Dear Mother,

On my arrival at the Isle of Bic[xxxv] I wrote to my father and sent my letter by New York which I dare say will reach you before this, as there is no ship at present going to England. I arrived at this place after a very disagreeable passage of 2 months on Wednesday 11th June, and have since been introduced to almost all the Families of any Consequence in the place and have met with great Civility and Respect.

I find that when a ship is going away for England I shall be so much hurried that it will not be in my power to write to many of my friends, I shall therefore make a kind of Journal of this letter and remark in it any occurence that happens to me wch is worth notice, as I think it will convey a better Idea to my Frs of my Situation than a few lines written in a hurry; almost immediately after my coming to Shore I took a walk round this town wch is so famous for the Signal Victory gained by Genl Wolfe ( over the French - added ) and the attack made on it last year by the american Rebels.

It is situate on a point of Land wch is formed by the Rivers St, Lawrence and St. Charles, the Country around it very romantic and pleasing. The Town itself dirty and disagreeable, Here are still remains of the attack made by Genl Wolfe on the plains of Abraham and too many dreadful marks of the late attempt by the Rebels.

I have been too short a time to form any accurate Idea of the disposition or manner of the Canadians, tho they differ much from the English; as the Inhabitants were originally French they now retain the Language and customs of that Country; of late years several English and Scotish merchants have settled here and as they increase it is probable the French Customs will gradually wear away.

I live with my Frd Mr. Davison who has introduced me to everybody here, I am just returned from dining with a large party at the Lt. Governors where there was every Elegance and Luxury that this Country affords.

I was always too much attached to my own family and home to be equally happy in a Country where I no scarcely any body, but now look upon myself as a Citizen of the World and must endeavour to reconcile myself to any Situation and to pass my time happily in any place that my lot may be cast in; the present uncertain State of political matters makes it impossible for me at present to form any judgement of the time of my return tho’ it is probable that I shall be able to determine on this matter before I should have an opportunity of sending this letter.

Letter from Daniel Bell to his father Daniel Bell

Dated at Quebec 7th August 1777

My Dear Father

After an Absence of near 4 Months from my Friends, I had on Sunday the Pleasure of receiving a packet of Letters from home, amongst them was your Favor from the May, that, wch contained an account of little Occurences from our parting at Ports­mouth, wth letters from my sisters and has not reached me.

Your Journal has been very entertaining to me and I should follow yr plan, but being now engaged in an entire new Set of Acquaintance, an account of the manner of passing my time would not be very interesting, as you are quite unacquainted with the Company with whom I associate, the Civility and Attention I receive from People in general here, makes my time pass as pleasantly as I can expect it at so great a distance from all my old Friends and Acquaintances  —

Last Week I went out with a Gentleman an hour or two Cock Shooting, on the 24th July (strange time of year for this Diversion) we killed 3 couple - They are much smaller than ours, The plumage on the Back and Head the same, but their Breast are nearly as red as our robins - tomorrow I am going to look a parcel of Whistling Plover wch I have heard of for the first this Year, they are very plenty in the Fall - I believe there are few Countries in wch a Sportsman cannot find Entertainment.

I am glad to find that you took notice of our Cosn Jaffrays and altho’ I spent some weeks at their House I brought my heart safely away — I fancy to their great astonishment; they seemed surprised and perhaps I may say, without Vanity, mistified, that Dawson Street had more Charms to me than their house - but so it was — Their Good Sense had more Effect on my Judgement and their Civilities on my Gratitude than their Beauty or Charms on my heart - in the other Place I had Good Sense - Civility and every Thing than can render a woman pleasing to struggle againts and therefore it is not much to be wondered at, that much possessions and Accomplishments get the better of a Resolution, wch wanted the Aid of Inclination for its Support.

In answer to my Mother’s letter I have wrote my Mind very fully in this subject to wch I refer you, as I am sure you are interested in my Feelings on a Matter wch affects me so nearly - I am still quite at a loss to think when I shall return, but from what I can gather,

I begin to doubt the possibility of getting to the Southuran eiiher by Land or Water; in wch Case I shall very probably eat my Xmas Dinner at Stamford Hill - altho the immense Atlandtic Ocean is between us.-

I have wrote to you very frequently lately and therefore as I am now much hurried I shall new (sic) finish — Remember me to all my Friends and believe me wth most affectionate Regard to all the Family.

Your dutiful son D.B.

Gen Burgoyn is proceeding fast on his way to Albany and does not at present expect to meet much resistance from the Rebels.

Mrs Bell at Mr John Gurney, jnr Norwich
Prob eldest son of Daniel & Katherine Bell.
London, 2nd April 1776

My dear mother,
Thy own feelings on the melancholy events of the dissolution of my dear Cozn Agatha (Gurney) will enable thee to judge of those friends she has left here – If to a husband the removal of the best of wives, to a father that of the best of children & to a friend, the best of friends is distressing, what must not these near relatives have suffered in this dispensation of Providence; that the ways of the Almighty are just we can never doubt & that whatever is to him is right we may rest assured, yet nevertheless we at a loss to account for what valuable purpose a person of such eminent virtue & so many most excellent qualities can have been taken from us, one who might have lived a bright example to lead other in the same paths of rectitude & purity which doubtless have conducted her to endless felicity
I hope that the same power which has been pleased to deprive them of this most valuable blessing will enable her friends to support with becoming resignation & fortitude this severe and afflicting stroke.
I am full of apprehension on account of my dear sister Gurney, this effect that a knowledge of this calamitous circumstance once may have on her on her present critical situation may be of the most material consequence What a loss must she suffer?
I am very anxious to hear how she goes on.
Pray give my dear love to my brother John, tell him I would write to him but as I can afford him no particular consolation, I think it better to avoid enlarging on a subject so replete with the most distressing circumstances to all our connections as he will know my anxiety on account of Kitty?? & hope he will relieve it by writing frequently
We are all well, - give my dear love to Kity, Beccy, Jonathan & Caroline & believe me with sincere affection,
Your dutiful son
D Bell jnr?

I am so well convinced that it will add to your pleasure to hear of my safe arrival on this side, that I gladly embrace the first opportunity to communicate
We arrived this day after a pleasant journey and passage

I have only time to add that I am with most affect regard to my father the friends of Jonathan my dear mother.

7.4    Letters from Maria Bell to her daughter Maria in Bordeaux

(Dec 1820 to June 1821)



                                                Hornsey Sunday 10th Decer: 1820

My dearest Maria,

                  You will think it strange that I have found nothing to say since the date of my last letter which you have received now about.  However, I assure you, much as you are in my thoughts, our way of life is so very monotonous that it affords at present little scope for remark.  How different are your delightful journals to us! You can guess the routine of every day with us but we can know nothing of you except from what you tell us & the complete satisfaction your charming letters bestow can be better conceived than described.  Last night we were gratified by one to Kate, by which I am most happy to find you are becoming more …. & accustomed to a way of life ….. & in some respects so trying.  I have no longer any fears for your happiness, my dear Maria, nor any doubt that you will derive great advantages in many ways from the exertions you are obliged to make.  By the way, we have not yet seen the promised letter to Emma, containing many things we want to know, but we conclude it is coming by the Ambassador’s Bag.
We never had our time so much to ourselves as now since the year 1814.  Since the Gaussis left Hornsey, we have not had a single engagement I think at home or abroad.  Last Friday however deserves notice.  I went to town to shop, & met Mrs Trimbey in Watling Street.  That house is often now the …. Of assignations of one sort or other.  She gave me a very good account of all the Bathamites, but a letter lately from James speaks of a severe bilious attack he has had, in consequence of which he writes in rather low spirits, & no wonder, poor fellow, at such a distance from his home.  He has been very unlucky  in missing several important letters from his family about the recent occurrences, which is very vexatious to them here.  I do not find any movements making towards towards a conclusion of the matrimonial affairs, but I fancy Mr H is growing very important as the courting interferes very much with his business.  I think this should induce them to shorten his probation.  I returned by the coach, & went to tea to Mrs Cornthwaite’s with Kate & Emma, quite en famille & spent a very pleasant evening.  I had not been there since the 6th Septer: when you, dear Maria, were of the party.  Mrs T. told me she heard Mrs Hankin had been very poorly, we have seen or heard nothing of Chrissy or the young man.

Friday 15th: I have just had the great delight of hearing good part of dear Maryanne’s letter to Eliza read.  It has made me feel so happy & thankful!  I am always fancying my dear Maria in some of the situations described in your various letters: & always my heart dilates with the belief that she will act worthy of her principles, & make the most & best of every thing with a cordial reliance on Devine support & protection.  While I think of it I must beg you to furnish yourself as opportunity & funds will allow, with a good stock of cambric hanks, as many as you can bring over made & washed without risk, as they will be most useful & acceptable.  I suppose you might bring two dozen without suspicion, as the French I believe keep generally a good stock of linen.  If you are obliged to mark them put only a B.  J. Trimbey is much better.
Sunday 17th: This is the second Sunday we have been detained at home by weather.  Papa has been looking over the Port folios, & has selected your sketch of boy’s to hang up in his room, & we have also determined to decorate the parlour with Reston & the Feeling Drawing.  You cannot imagine dear Maria how pleased your father has been!  He said “I will bet a wager Maria will bring home some capital drawings from France”!
Thursday 21st: Our Xmas gaieties began on Tuesday eveg. my dear Maria, by a very agreeable party at the Johnston’s, abt 40 persons assembled to what was a called & appeared in their large rooms, a small party.  The greater part were young, & danced Quadrilles; we knew almost every Lady.  The St Johns took us in their coach.  Papa self, Kate & Emma. Dramatis Personae.  Davis’s, Rhodes, Prescots, Barons (to whom I made apologies which were graciously received) & Miss Henderson of Newington, Hayters, Misses Watrrd, Mr Shaw, & other beaux whose names I could not learn, & pour comble de bonheur, the Gillmans & Coleridge,[147] who was in high tune.  He talked of Animal Magnetism, the Magnetic Pole, the Queen, the progress of civilizations, etc.  Poor Miss Johnston can only speak in a whisper, but was very cheerful & agreeable as usual, they mean to keep her entirely at home thro’ the winter, but hope their friends will go to see them, which, of course, we shall not object to.  I am truly grieved to tack to this cheerful scene a circumstance of real concern to us all: but thus it must be in journal writing, for, as we  have often observed, every day has its vicissitudes of joy & grief, pleasure & pain.  Our amiable & promising friends the Cauries are on the list of sufferers by the late dreadful failures in the mercantile world, of which I dare say, the report has reached Bordeaux.  I have heard no particulars yet.  Also the Mr Lasue whom we met at Trimbey’s at a dance long ago, has failed.- Tomorrow, my dearest Maria, we shall become more at liberty, & I wish I must not listen to voices in my heart: that only beloved girl could be transported here just for one month: Instead of indulging such thoughts, I must dwell with delight on the conviction that you are well & happy, & in the path of duty, & let me add, that nearly three tedious months are elapsed of your absence.
Christmas day.  I have thought so much of you, my dearest Maria, this day, that I cannot be satisfied without telling you so.  We have just left the dinner room & the young ones are looking over their money boxes.  Dillon & his cousin Robert made us just a dayson.  The Boardalais were drank in Claret.  I long to know how you spend this festive day.  Last Friday we had a grand musical treat.  Mr Horn & his son Chat & a pupil of his who played the violin delightfully.  They played almost missantly from 4 o’clock to one in the morning & from 9 to 12 the next day & then left us.  Arpold near here, & highly pleased.  This reminds me of Kate’s Dahlias which are finished & beautiful.  Their children were later than usual this time.  The day of breaking up was the 22d, but the Pryors, Bolston & Carston staid till the 23rd.  You swill be glad to hear their Exercises in general were capital: quite as much improved as could be expected.  Miss Lees made two excellent translations into French & Italian.  Minnie & Louisa transposed extremely well: the former Cowper’s poor family in the winter evening: the latter, the Introduction of the Last Minstrel.  EK worked very hard to finish her mass, which she did except a few words.  They have all been perfectly well, thro’ the half-year, which is a blessing for which we can never be thankful enough.  Farewell dearest.

Sunday 31st:  I have been from home, my dearest girl, since Xmas-day: On Tuesday I went to my Mother’s, & staid till the next day.  She & Louisa & Aunt Hannah are quite weak.  On Wednesday I met Mrs Trimbey at Clapham Church, & had the unexpected pleasure of a sermon from Mr Deattry, 16th verse 3d Ch: 1 Epis: Timothy.  I spent three most happy days with them & retd home yesterday.  As Maria sent you a letter on Friday, I shall add nothing but that they are all remarkably well.  I saw your account of the S. family in your letter to her.  Did I not mention to you that I had seen Mr Harrison?  He is a very agreeable looking man I think, & I was sorry to see so little of him.  It is droll enough he should think I scrutinised him so much, but indeed I could not help looking at him.  I heard there that Dan, George & Chrissy Hankin had all been very ill of a fever of some kind, & the former still continues so.  Kate Holdsworth is in the same situation, but was rather better before I came away.  Emma Danvers & Jane Hamilton are also seriously ill, & Mrs Mason still confined to the house.  Here is a formidable sick list, but it is to be hoped, before this reaches you, they will all be convalescent.  I am happy to tell you that the Gaweirs’ affairs are not so bad as was at first represented.  They have however lost a large sum of money & will probably be obliged to make some retrenchments.  Who knows but they may come back to Hornsey?  Tuesday we are all going to Mr Oliphants, & shall call in Tupel Square.  I am not going to my Mother’s till the latter end of the holidays, but Kate & Emma are to pay her a visit, & also to Balham – I must now, dear, turn to your delightful letter received yesterday with one to Eliza & one from M. to the same, all of which contained matter highly interesting.  I am afraid you will think you wait a long while for another letter, but there are so many to write that we are obliged to take turns.  On the whole, I think you have, with those to your cousins, a letter a week, & that is a good deal.  I have not yet had any application about a scholar, not a word of Mr Crawley Wards or of Miss M. Browne.  But the Xmas account is not of such a nature as to make me dread a discontinuance of our present happy plan of united industry.  The terms of E.S. are not quite settled: but of course I shall make them as moderate as I can.  While on this subject, my dear Maria, I wish to ask you how you think we should proceed with the mass.  A good many are done, but not looked over.  I think to do this; & make the girls learn them after their return, the younger ones are going thro’ the disputed mass.  Julia gets on rapidly now, you would like to see her trudging up to her Papa every morning, with her bible under her arm, to read a few verses, with such an important air!  I am almost afraid, my beloved girl, to enter on your next subject.  The prospect of your return seems involved in obscurity.  Edward never writes a letter to any of us, which, I must own, surprises me: Kate is expecting to hear from him every post, but I suppose he cannot yet form his plans with any decision.  I sincerely hope his rise – consulship will not stand in the way of our seeing him, as to the time, I certainly would not wish you to come over till you may reasonably expect good weather, that is, after the Equinox, & if your Uncle wishes very much that you should accompany the girls to the Pyrenees, I should be concerned to prevent your taking such a beautiful tour:  & I think you would also regret having missed it, merely for the sake of shortening your absence a month, which I suppose would be the outside.  However you must not take this as a positive permission.   While Kate is with us, we can spare you pretty much, especially if there should be no great accession of scholars: but I should be sorry to put any obstacle in the way of that conclusion which I knst will give satisfaction to us all.  Thus, dear, you see I can say nothing: we must be guided by circumstances as they arise, but you will not fail to acquaint me with your uncle’s plans & wishes, & with all the probable chances there may be of a safe & proper conveyance for you, if Edward is obliged to disappoint us.  I hope, at least, you will now enjoy his company uninterrupted during the rest of your stay, & may the next three months pass, on the whole, as well as the three last, & we may be well contented.

Hobbes lost Miss Vaux by neglect before they went to Brighton.  He is elected to the Naemonists instead of Edward.  I am grieved to say E. Vaux is again very poorly, & Barclay Head has sunk under an attack of consumption – Indeed, my dearest Maria, I dare not think of parting with your darling sister: but I believe the thought of her happiness will reconcile me to it: & it seems quite Dillon’s wish as much as ours, to find a house in our road at least.  It must be near town, as he has always a great deal of walking, but not in town.  He hopes to find a house about the City Road.  I did not think this event would come so near without disturbing my tranquility more than it does: but her prospects, with a man of such persevering affection, appears so comfortable that I own the agreeable feelings predominate.  A Thans and Thanks, my dear girl, for your dutiful & affectionate expressions on this subject.  What a happy Mother am I, who in parting with a daughter like Kate, can yet feel assured that her place will be amply supported! – I have lately finished Butler’s Analogy, which I admire more than ever.  At present, my studies are at a stand-still, as is usually the case when I seem to have most leisure: but visiting & needle-work then claim their dues.  I have begun a beautiful piece of lace-work to Miss Rees’s pattern, which I enjoy very much.  It is three yards long, & I have done a quarter.

There has been no news of Ellen Browne since Emma wrote you.  All your friends here are constant in their enquiries after you.  Eliza is at this moment writing to you, but you must not expect the letter immediately.  She desires one to express her warmest thanks for the two received yesterday.  We are all perfectly well thank God!  I think the riding lesson must be very serviceable to you, as walking exercise seems hard to obtain.  How very kind of Uncle! But no generosity of his can ever surprise me.  Pray remember me affectionately to him, & also the dear girls & Edward.  Tell the latter he must write.  I am happy to hear a good account of Fanny & the children.  I am glad to find you like Miss Trent, & that Annie improves.  You are so many people it would be hard to find them all frivolous or inspired: but we are rather spoiled for general society.  We are perpetually talking of, & wishing for you: the holy days seem wrong without you, but they, like the months of school, will soon pass away.  Believe me my dearest Maria, your most affectionate Mother Maria Bell.


Kate sends her love aux belles jumelles.  & Papa, & all the boys & girls theirs to you.  I have just recollected I have not wished you all a happy new-year, which I now do with all fervency.  May the Great Disposer guide, protect, and lead you into all good, & keep you from all evil Amen!


Mrs Brett in her last, Desires me to reserve a little corner for her kindest love.

She is well, & so is Emily & her two fine boys.  The Lloyds are now in town, but Mrs B. says nothing of the affair at Midhurst.

            To my greatest delight, my dearest Maria, I am once more at home; & seated at my own desk, intend to begin a letter which I hope to dispatch on Tuesday next, just four weeks since my last.  I will give you a sketch of the party in the dining room, which is but small.  Tea being dismissed, Papa & Mr Martin are chatting.  Jonny & Louisa at draughts, Jasper looking on, & Emma Simpkinson at work.  I brought her up from Kingston this morning, & having put her with Nomrey work, I went to meet Mrs Trimbey in Watling Street & walked about with her paying bills, etc.  On returning to Suffolk Lane to go home, I saw uncle Bell & was glad to hear a very good account of them all, particularly Lucy.  I will answer now your enquiries after the sick list in yours to Emma, (which I found here, & accounted to read, as she will not be at home till the middle of next week: but Edward’s to Kate, & those to Eliza are under lock & key till their return.)  Jane Hamilton is convalescent tho’ so weak as only to lifted from one bed to another. E Danvers sometimes better, sometimes worse, still very ill.  D. Handin recovering but very weak.  Poor Kate Holesworth in a very critical & dangerous state, as Mr Pryor says, the fever not subdued.  What reason we have to be thankful for our happy exemption from these trials!  I am most happy to hear your account of your own health & that of the dears with you, & we here are equally flourishing, granering blowing, all alive!  As your last letter my dear girl is in my trunk, which I cannot get at to-night, I will employ the  present in giving you some account of my proceedings, tho it is likely you will have a tried-told tale, as the girls are not here to refer to.  But first, methinks you exclaim all & Ma “Where are they”?  Well then Kate is at my Mother’s since Thursday, & El & Em are gone to Baldack to celebrate the majority of Mr John Pryor.  You are quite right in your speculations for twelth day, which was kept in due form on the Friday preceding at Mr Cornthwaites .  All went but Jonny & Julia.  The former had a young friend with him for a few days, named Lawrence, who did not like dancing: the latter was invited, but, for various reasons, I did not like her to go, so she drank tea, played at Posse with the aforesaid, & kept her eyes wide open till 11 o’clock.  The next Tuesday Louisa was asked to a similar party at Mrs Misage’s where she slept, & we all dined that day at Higginson’s.  Met the Carnthwaites & Pages, & spent a pleasant day.  Mrs H. in good spirits.  Wednesday, the 10th W Eade came, & Thursday the little Co. 3 Tioays & Juke Trimbey, with Messrs Jones & Dillon made up a grand Inadrille at our house which they all seemed to enjoy.  W. Eade left us the next day, & Louisa went to pay a London visit to Miss Greenhill, Emma to Clapham Rise & I to Mrs Brett, whom I found pretty well.  I staid till Saturday, when Edward came to see us & staid till Tuesday.  I found him better than I had expected from the account we had heard, but he is far from well.  The complaint has now taken a different turn & affects his spirits in a sad way.  It appears a sort of hypochondria, which is often the result of a deranged stomach.  Poor fellow!  He has been & is a great sufferer, & he is so truly amiable, one cannot but feel greatly interested about him.  I must not, however, pass over dear Wm without a word of remark.  He is indeed a charming youth, & I do not wonder his sisters are so fond of him.  I do not recollect any-thing worth particular mention during this time except our [Papa] reading the play of the Rivals at last, which made us laugh quite as much as we expected, & Edward was much amused.  Also  Mr Lingee read prayers on the 14th & preached in the afternoon, but I was not much struck with him.  He preached again a very fine sermon last Sunday, but that I lost.  Thursday the 18th Jonny & Jasper went to a child’s dance at St John’s & on Friday I went to Clapham Rise, having called in my way at Balham Hill where I found all well.  Aunt Louisa was in bed with a bad headache, & could not go to a dance at Mr Joseph Bonds: but Miss Bond was so kind as to insist on Emma’s going & to continue the manner of it, & as she met the Lavenhills/bride & all/ & the Newington Moncey she passed a very pleasant evening.  The next day she returned to Hornsey, & Aunt, having applied six leeches by Mr Pryor’s order, was quite recovered, & I enjoyed my short visit there very much.  I am sorry to say, however, that Grand Mama was several times teaged with her spasms, but P. says they are not alarming tho’ very painful.  Papa Th. Ed, Jonny went on that Friday to a grand party at Johnstons.  On the 24th my Mother took me to Kingston/ Kate went to Balham the 22d/.  They were all well except colds, but uncle was gone to see after his uncle, who had been seriously indisposed, but I believe the good gentleman will hold a good fight yet.  I called on the hetelier & was sorry to find Elizabeth with a constant little cough & stooping very much.  I never think of her without regretting that she did not return to School for another year, for I feel confident that Gillman would have set her up in health, & she would have been a different creature now.   Caroline I think much improved in appearance & manners, but their way of life is almost too retired.  I called at Ruvislidly they were out walking, but finding my card on their return, Mrs R ordered  the carriage & came to see me; which gave me great pleasure, for I have not seen them for a twelvemonth.  I assure you, my Dear Maria, I feel, as you will think, that I have had enough of engagements & long to return to a course of useful employment.  However I believe there accession all dissipations are beneficial, & I could not be happy without sometimes seeing my friends.  I flatter myself E. Surite be lucky to us.  One or two others are on the tapis, but I cannot speak with certainty, therefore will not name them.  I will not attempt a description of my new scholar till I have seen more of her, for three years make a great difference in a child, & she appears much improved in person & manners.  Good night my dearest! May you rest well beneath the wings of our Heavenly Guardian!

Tuesday morn: 30th: This, my dearest Maria, is the day appointed for assembling our little flock & I cannot help wishing you were by my side to share our labours, tho’ I can truly say, I have more & more earnestly wished for you to share our holy day pleasures, but of amusement you do not seem to stand in need just now.  I am very sorry that not the least glimmering of certainty yet appears about your return.  I wish, my dear girl, you would write to me confidentially, what you really prefer yourself, by which I mean whether you would choose to come home if possible with Capt Baxter in April or May, or whether you could be willing to remain a few months longer if I could make up my mind to spare you, on thinking of Edwd bringing you over in the Autumn.  Also if you can discover what are your Uncle’s real wishes on the subject, as to the girls there can be no doubt.  I do not say that I could without detriment to the School, do without your assistance so long: but the knowledge of your own inclinations might assist me in deciding, for if you were not perfectly happy, nay, desirous to prolong your stay, it would not be worth while to make any sacrifice for it.  As to Kate’s affair, I have no idea of the precise period when it is likely to terminate, but I will not throw any impediment in the way of that.  She returned home yesterday as Edwad letter contains not a syllable on your subject, which has disappointed me, but I shall write to him shortly.  We had a dinner party.  The Gillman’s Coleridge, Hilary, Mrs & Miss Reynolds, a pleasant day.  I have not yet noticed your dear long letters.  I was much entertained by the debate on Geaneology & required to find Eds ideas so worthy of the subject of immortality, tho’ not perfectly congenial with my own, I believe I said something about it, in a little note sent in a parcel thro’ a friend of Dillons to the Ambassador ….. from hence, which we hope will arrive safe & free & It’s very horrid to lose letters, ûnstant comme les nôtres.  I think M.J. has had the one you mention, as she showed me a passage in one from you concerning the Scotts.  Your account of Xmas-day is very amusing, as well as Le jour des Etrennes, in fact, nothing can be more delightful than to engage this free communication which so completely brings you before our eyes.  I think you do not mention what books you get to read.  I should like much to know: & what Signre Bellvere recommends to you.  Have you read Ceonelle or Jacine? Or any of Voltaires? The Hornade for example.  I should think his prose words unfit for you.  I shall think of my dear girl with peculiar interest next Sunday, when I hope to receive the sacrament.  I ….. that you had the gratification of communicating with dear Edward.  I suppose you will only have it administered on the great festivals, as I believe most foreign churches think it right to use that solemn ordinance sparingly, I mean of course, the Reformed Churches. And as you have but a small congregation, perhaps your English clergymen may find it often enough.  I am glad, my dearest Maria, you are beginning to flow out a little towards your present society, as it will make your stay with them much more agreeable.  Do the girls pursue their dancing with you, or have they a Master?  Edward does not mention his wife or children.  He seems to think you female writers leave him nothing to say: but that is a little mistake, as I wish to hear his opinions on various points, which I can hear only from himself.  However I shall write him soon & then I suppose he will answer not.  Kate brings account that B. Holesworth is rather better, so I trust she will have no relapses.  I called on Mrs Magan Sunday, but she was too weak & poorly to admit me, having had a bad night.

I hope the paper we use is thin enough, for it shows all the writing through.


Miss Clark of Park lane has lost her Mother & is going to be married.  I think Mrs Oliphant mentioned that Mrs Tiller would not go to Bordeaux.

I think dear, this is a strange medley, but I am scribbling while expecting Mrs & Miss ? to make their appearance at the breakfast table, which is a great bar to fancy or elegant writing: but I am determined this shall go to-day.  Jonny & Jasper go to school tomorrow.  Louisa is highly delighted with her letter & sends her kindest love with the rest.  Papa has one on the stacks to you & Kate says she shall write immediately both to you & Edward.  She heard of three from you to M.T.L.V. & Mrs Hankin.  Assure my dear nieces of my constant & most affectionate remembrance.  Also my dear Edward; & give my very kind love to Mr Eade, & to Fanny when you write, & above all, assure yourself, my beloved child, that you occupy with the tenderest sentiments of maternal love, the heart of you affectionate Mother

                                                      Maria Bell


I must squeeze in that dear Julia is reading French, & makes it out very well.  Your plan of giving her a book to herself has wrought wonders.  I think she will be fit to begin French after Mid.



                                                      Hornsey 7th: June 1821 Bailach

      I have been looking forward, my dearest Maria, with some impatience to this afternoon of leisure to devote it to you, for from various causes, it is now a matter of some difficulty to obtain even a quiet half-hour.  In preparation, I was reading over again your sweet letter of the 17th May (last date) in the garden before dinner, & felt a little alarm on the possibility of this not reaching Bordeaux till you have set forward towards the Pyrenees, which I am sensible would occasion you a grave disappointment.  However, I will not fear this as it will but just be the middle of the month when this arrives, for whether I am able to fill my sheet or not, I will send it off tomorrow.  This first thing that occurs to remark is the difference between the present & this time & day last year.  How much I longed for your dear salutation this morning, I will not attempt to express; but it is some consolation to think that your heart is with us & your wish equal for my affectionate embrace.  Ah how much we shall have to make up when we meet again!  My two dear nieces too, I doubt not, have bestowed on me their good wishes, as well as my dear Edward tho’ to him the day is not so especially marked for celebration.  I have now accomplished half a century, & in taking but a slight view of so long a course of years, I cannot but be deeply impressed with the unceasing mercy & protection of God, & of my own great unworthiness.  It seems to me that my sins of omission only have been almost infinite; like the hairs of my head in number, & that nothing short of infinite compassion could pardon such continual deviations.  Ah, my dearest Maria!  How can any mortal feel pride in self-examination.  Yet from the praises given to humility in the Holy Scripture, one must conclude it a grace of difficult attainment.  But to proceed – yesterday morning we had a nice musical practice with MDorn & Mr Dyer, Kate & Dillon.  The latter staid just long enough to usher in the morning with congratulations.  This evening we expect the Ds. Mrs Cornthwaite, M Tivazz Misses dsJohn.  We have had so many engagements lately that I have really not had a moment to myself.  Since Emma dispatched her letter (last Friday) we went a second party to the Exhibition and saw also Mr West’s Gallery at his former house in Newman Street which  was a great treat.  Christ rejected & Death on the pale horse are there, with a number of grand pictures, chiefly scriptural subjects.  This was Saturday.  On sunday our dinner party was six including the two Rivages: what a falling off!  On Monday I took Ekee & Miss Burr & Jonny to a Confirmation at Bishopsgate Church.  We met Aunt Emma & her two eldest girls at No 20 Broad Strt, & went with Simpkinsons Parish, which was very agreeable.  I was myself confirmed at B. Church.  The same coach conveyed Papa, Kate & Eliza to a very different scene, the rehearsal of the Messiah at the Hanover Square Rooms by the ancient Music band, which they enjoyed highly: & after the Confon: we went to fetch them home.  Last Monday week Mrs Trimbey came & staid one night, & told us all the particulars of dear MTs wedding,[148] which took place as intended on the 19th: that day  was made remarkable three years ago, by their coming down the 18 to Hornsey, the first time after quitting it, to see Mrs Sergeant, & the 19th: I went to breakfast with Mrs T. & Maria joined your party.  I find Maria behaved with great steadiness thro the ceremony; they breakfasted in Watling Street & the happy pair set off for Windsor: but retd to Balham on Monday, where they staid till Saturday.  Last Saturday Mrs T. went down to Hoddesdon to accompany her daughter to church, & assist in receiving the callers, which, of course, were numerous.  I had a few lines from her to-day.  She says Maria looks happy, & I dare say she feels so, for had not W Harrison found the way to her heart, I think she never could have resolved on leaving a home where she was so completely idolized.  It is indeed very lucky that blind Cupid comes in the way sometimes, or else the best daughters, who may be expected to make the best wives, would never be married at all, which would be public loss.  Julia King says if her sister Eliza loved her Mama as much as she always said, she is sure she never could think of marrying.  She was at the rehearsal with her swain(I must not call him beau) looking so shy!  Has anyone told you that the Cauries are at Newington Green? We hope to find our way thither during the Holydays which begin the 22d.  I shall now refer to your letter my dear Maria, which affords abundance of interesting topics.  I am glad you like the cambric, etc, but was vexed to hear that the sharks had seized three yards of beautiful book muslin, I gave to Edward for you have worked.  As to the poor blue gowns, the blame, I believe, must rest with him, as he went with Kate to the purchase, & declared it just the thing for France.  However it may do to make a present of to your honne when you come away.  How truly kind & considerate of uncle to give you another!  I am very happy to hear you have a new clergyman whom you approve.  That is a pleasure to come for us.  It is seldom that I can fix my attention on our present  pastor, but not seldom that his monotonous voice lulls me into a half-daze, in spite of every effort.  You wish to hear about Miss Tees: The chief of her time is now devoted to Music, Drawing, & she seldom takes part in the classes: of course I see but little of her, but her conduct is very sweet & amiable as head of the school, & I doubt not her example tends very much to promote the peace & harmony & general good conduct that prevails with us.  Minnie improves very much in all but holding in her chin which I fear will never be acquired.  I hear the Mass twice a week, consisting of LB.SP.JH.AB & Burr, the two first usually the best, but all very fair.  I think Miss Pryor a good deal improved in temper & manners.  Canston as tiresome & giddy as ever, except in answering questions after reading, which is quite her forte.  All the rest making gradual & sufficient progress, considering their various talents & dispositions.  Chrissy has translated “Pline le jeune” in a capital style, it being her own request to do a holyday exercise.  I hope dear Maria, you will find them all in good order when you return.  I dare not trust myself with figuring that happy moment, at least, not till it is nearer.  There is still the journey to be taken, which appears to occupy all the space my short vision can command.  I therefore use my efforts to jog on contentedly till that bright reversion yet in store is within my grasp, satisfied to know it will be mine in due time.  Were I to allow my thoughts much range on this subject, I know I should become impatient, & the ensuing three months would be an intolerable burthen.  When I was aware, however, of the severe trials to which my permission for an extended stay had exposed you, I could not help wishing for your sake that it had not been granted: but I knot that now, my darling girl, you have nothing more to dread of that kind, but that your dear brothers presence has set all to rights.  I will not dwell on this most painful subject, because I quite approve of your ideas respecting the propriety of silence & oblivion as far as it can be obtained.  We never mention it among ourselves; & so far from thinking the former part of your letter too reserved, I am very glad you spared yourself the pain of relating particulars till you had seen Edward, & now I quite think they are better left untold.  But should any fresh course of uneasiness arise, you would be justified in confiding it to me, since we know already too much to be kept in the dark on a point so deeply interesting.  Pray tell me how my beloved Edward looks & is in health & spirits.  His great anxiety about his family made him often very far from well during his stay here; & the great interest he took in all our concerns did not tend to relieve his mind.  In fact, his visit, sweet & welcome as it was involved many moments of heartache from various causes, but I am truly to say that my mind is much more at ease than it was in what regards your father’s affairs.  I dare say Edward has told you that he has been in a critical situation, but he has been thro’ so many of the same complexion before, that I should not have thought much of it, had not his spirits sunk extremely.  But thank God! he is now in much better plight, & I suppose we shall sub on as usual another six months, which is quite as much as I can expect from former experience.  Perhaps Edward has not thought it right to communicate what I have now hinted at, especially if your father has written him in better spirits: in which care you may make yourself quite easy.  None of your dear sisters know any-thing of his perplexities; […] of course you will be silent to them: in fact, I should not have wished you to […]be made acquainted with them, had I not, at the time of Edwards departure […]entertained fears of a public disclosure by the breaking up of the business, […]would very likely have reached Bordeaux.  I am sorry indeed for your disappointment respecting Miss Trant: it was truly provoking.  Have you paid your visit to Alad Merman?  We were highly amused by your account of the braggart Mr Grove.  What an animal Indeed your whole letter was truly delightful my dear girl.  I was so joyful to hear of dear Edward’s safe arrival only a fortnight after he left; for we received it on Thursday the 24th: We were also most happy to hear a good account of Fanny & the little ones: I hope the air of Talence will prove beneficial to them.  I was sadly disappointed at not seeing them.  Now it may be many years before I have that pleasure.  Give my kind love to Fanny & Edward.  Mary and Mary …. & Mr Eade.  I hope we shall soon have a letter from someone?  I had a letter from Mrs Brett yesterday.  Her sister Mrs Drake is gone to Tours to spend a year with her husband & his sister.  We have yet firmed no plans for the Holydays, but I believe I shall go to Hitchin for a week, & I do not like to be longer from home.  I hope also to pass a day at Navlands & one at Hadham, & of course a few days with Mrs Brett & Mrs Trimbey.  My Mother too claims her share.  She has been very much troubled with spasms, but I think they have found a medicine which lessons their effect.  Aunt Louisa is well.  She sees her friend Miss Hilton pretty moften since her sister is married.  We have very unsettled weather lately.  Papa & I dined with the new married couplem for the first time last tuesday & Emma joined to tea, but a heavy rain came on, thro which we were obliged to trudge home, except Emma, who, having a cold, staid the night there.  I fear the same course will disappoint me of my party this evening.  I must now dress, & close this tomorrow.

Friday. Sailach.  All our friends came but the St Johns my dear Maria, & their place was most unexpectedly supplied by Frederic & Ellen Chapman, who came over to call on Mrs Dillon, & being detained there two hours by the rain, proceeded with her to my house, & the weather still continuing bad, we prevailed on them to pass the night.  They were both very agreeable.  I like Frederic better than most of his brothers.  He is not so very grand, but more like William with whom he resides, paying an annual visit to his Parents.  Young Edward is just sailed with his brother Alfred, who is captn of an Indiaman, & making a rapid fortune.  Our evening passed very pleasantly.  The children enjoyed their dance extremely.  The four class have made me a present of a handsome parasol, which was very acceptable, & Kate gave me a pair of washed muslin cuffs which are much worn.  How beautiful the French work is!  I suppose your sister has expressed her admiration of that you & your cousins sent her.  You will be delighted but not surprised to hear that she seems perfectly happy in her new state; & conducts à merveille, & every body thinks her carasposa much improved in exterior by matrimony.  His inhinne worth was well known before.  Kate comes here regularly tuesday & friday, & gives her music & french lesson.  Of course the grammar is done on wednesday & saturday.  We are in a sad dilemma about poor Nobbes.  He has not shown his face here since the 19th May, having got into a scrape with our friend G. by borrowing £50 of him.  It must end in my getting another master, but not before the holydays.  They say he has behaved shockingly bad in this business, but that is easily said by the rich of the poor, as the former cannot judge of the difficulties of the latter.  However, be it as it may, I cannot again subject my school to such repeated disappointments.  Mrs & Miss Johnson called here Wednesday.  The latter has at last recovered her voice.  We have two invitations there, on the 13th & 19th, but the first is the recitation.  I think it will be put off to the 14th. because Santagnello comes so late, in which case we shall go to Johnstons as it is to meet the Gillmans.  We are all well except a cold or two.  I hope your’s is gone long ago.  You will not fail to inform us how our epistolary intercourse is to be kept up during your absence from Bordeaux.  I need hardly add that you are always the subject of kind enquiry among our friends.  Your sisters say they have no message but kindest love to the whole circle. I have hardly left room to say  … truly I am my dearest Maria’s affectionate…..Mother

7.5    Vaux Family by Jonathan Bell, 1850’s

There follows some extracts from Jontahn Bell’s Memoir relating to the family of Maria, his wife family and her father, Edward Vaux and others. These extracts were transcribed by Timothy Edgcumbe Ford.

7.5.1      Vaux Family General

P86 ff:
It is now my intention to sketch a short record of my wife’s family, which I know will give her much pleasure, for what I shall have to say of them is nothing but full of high respect & must convey to every one who will peruse it’s a conviction of their excellency of their characters---

Maria was the eldest of 5 daughters & the second child there being 4 sons of

Edward Vaux Esq a Merchant & extensive Insurance Broker-I became acquainted

with the family through the intimacy I held with the elder son Jasper, accidentally occurring, I found them a particularly united family-most respectable in their Establishment, & conducted under regulations of strict order & regularity & boundless in liberality & hospitality - & have said this much of Stamford Hill Home, but there never was a happier home or a more closely untied one than the Vaux! Then living at Hackney – Their Measure of life was rather a confined one, they had not extensive family connections- but as the children advanced-they became more open to friends & they cultivated their associations with a numerous class of family acquaintance of the first respectability.

One of the uniting Chords of family attachment was that of Music-Father &

Daughters & Sons were all so.
Mr Vaux was no mean amateur on the Violin – his son Jasper played the Bass & his daughters accompanied with the Piano & the love of singing was equally prevalent in the son Jack it was conspicuously in fine tone & is so now in his old days – my Wife had a great voice and was generally admired for her taste & feeling – there was a great dramatic charm in this – particularly serviceable to young men - I feel much interested in the recollection of Mr Vaux, he was a most engaging, delightful man – very striking handsome in person & with a fine capacity he united a most cheerful animated temperament – generous – frank, high minded & noble in principle he was more than commonly popular & admired – He was eminently considered a first rate man of Business & his own particular sphere was always referred to for sound opinion & judgment – he was constantly employed as an Arbitrator – his decisions were always approved of & even the Judicial Bench often bore witness to his talents &upright conclusions- They were altogether a talented family – the son William became a Clergyman & was highly esteemed for his knowledge & conduct - & was spoken of in a flattering manner for the productions of his pen- The second daughter Emma, married a Clergyman The Revd Simpkinson & it was her cleverness & literary accomplishments that won his love-he was a very clever person, & knew how to appreciate her.

Two other daughters-Eliza & Mary were married respectably two Brothers the Mr Eades – one had a melancholy result - the other was a happy one in abilities;

The youngest daughter Louisa must not be forgotten by me-she did not marry – nor is it likely now – her life was devoted to attend when her brother long confined with a lingering breakout – her character is stamped upon my mind as one of the sweetest most affectionate, engaging young women I ever knew-sensible & most earnest in everything worthy & amiable – she was a mere child when I married – devoted to my wife & even attached to me. The two eldest sons Jasper & Edward were gentlemen of excellent character & conduct-my friend was rather imperious in tempers-but most worthy-Edward the kindest friend possible both highly respected & now for my excellent friend the Mother----she was rather remarkable – the love of Order was her ruling passion-education-dress-habits-company-domestic affairs of every sort were always to be mathematically conducted & pursued – this principle governed her on the arrangement of her family & she brought them into life as remarkable persons in this principle-to her high honor. I record this of her but & where is there not a but - she was such a chairman of particularity as to make her be considered rather a fidgety person – another weakness prevailed too. The constant fear of other peoples opinion of her management---

Mrs Vaux reverenced her husband & I really am of opinion she never held her head up after his death, tho’ she lived some years – I have said a word or so of Maria in other memoirs-what can I say now – I awakened an ardent affection in her to the surprise of all the family for they all thought she nor any of them could ever love anyone but one another – but I carried off the Jewel.

[Maria Bell, née Vaux]

February 1852 (P89)

The following Relation or memoirs, having been collected & recorded from time to time soon after the decease of my dear & lamented wife I think it cannot be better formally registered than by following the Biographical sketch of my own family, in which she appears rather a striking object; In this recital – my memory has called forth – many most interesting circumstances to myself & daughters – to others more distantly connected they may prove perhaps too personal for them – but my wish has been to display in truthful detail the character of the beloved object in all her walks & habits which in a long life reflect such valuable characteristics & leave to her descendents such a beautiful instance & example of excellence & conspicuous devotional Piety. ---

The heavy bereavement I have sustained has naturally called forth so many dormant reminiscences in my mind and so strongly produced a sensitive feeling of the fleeting yet lengthened days and years that have passed since the Union with my dear lamented wife, that I feel it justly due to the memory of her to collect the recollections and endeavor to depict them in recital, to do her character just honor and to show forth her loveliness and excellence to both young and old of her own close connections. I became acquainted with Maria Vaux very early in life, the eldest daughter of parents with a numerous family, living in a highly respectable sphere, but excluded as to society and the world – closely united in most affectionate chords, each & every one doting upon the others. The Mother was a remarkable person, very strict in discipline very orderly in her domestic procurement; discourse, propriety, submissiveness, accompanied with religious observances were her constant care and observance over her family. And as the oldest Maria became, as it were, the depositor and instrument of dispensing these to her sister. 

In person neither slim nor full, not strictly & uniformally handsome – clear and rather bronze like complexion with most expressive full eyes, beaming with softness

 and intelligence. Her temper was placidness itself, her understanding strong. God had blessed her too with an ardency for knowledge, and fine talents, not strikingly brilliant but sound and deep, and ardor in the improvement of them, which through her long life, were constantly in increasing energy- With these ornaments of mind; with the sweetness of disposition, with simple and commanding powers, it was no wonder she became an adored object of her sisters, and became an object of respect as well as love, having them to receive her command, and even to look up to her for advice and instruction. These are the words of a sister now 90 years old, in a letter to me of condolence – a very talented person as were indeed all the family. But they held her in just estimation, and so far from creating a comparison, or tincture of jealousy; it was a continued accession of the most ardent admiration and affection. How I won this gem; how I awakened affection, nay, love is to me, as I see her in those youthful days most extraordinary- I cannot go into characteristics of myself. I appear now, as I recall the opening of my heart for her as scarcely a worthy object of her. I feel at times as if I never defended her. I am writing this emblem in my 83 year – and I relate that accd. tablet of peace at the Brompton Cemetery you can read 81 to be her attainment in years. What a period of time to trace through – but as my pen moves on, I have found such uncompromising interest, as to make me think I ought not to omit any circumstance that can tend to develop her character, and to exhibit how she was beloved, admired, respected by everyone, rich and poor, young and old-domestics! Her children! Her husband! At 23 years of age I paid a visit as companion to her brother to the family at Ludgate and I found her at a zenith of happiness and enjoyment. She was an enthusiastic lover of nature (in this we were truly alike) the Ocean, the romantic scenery of the neighbourhood- the high towering cliffs of Dover-the moonlight nights-the richness of the autumn crops were delight to her ardent mind and refined aspirations-and I, ardent as herself, became entranced; not knowing what deep entrancement it was, how far I had engendered love-but love it was, and tho’ time was required for development it kindled at this delightful intercourse, almost unknown to myself, how far, or whether at all at this period her own feelings became agitated or warmed, I cannot say, for I did not receive the happy arrival for two or three years afterwards. I was there in pursuit of all kinds of pleasure-I was in extensive society- I even became united to a very affectionate interest with a charming Lady; carrying on a very intimate association-almost to a love, and I fear, I say I fear, touched her heart never to experience a response-Why? because a latent spark had been struck in my soul, always like a load-stone drawing towards another attraction. I must not indulge myself in these pleasing, gratifying recollections, by tracing the progress of my attachment for a long period; or endeavour to discover when she experienced the like impulse-but at once delineate her as my Wife,-and develop, by open to view and appreciation her character during scenes and times, and occurrences of wonderous vicissitude

She was quite unknown to my family-I had six or seven sisters, most affectionately attached to me; particularly clever, cultivated women; of warm enthusiastic natures, greatly interested to see and know my choice, and when they did see and know her, and found her a simple-minded, rather reserved, chosy of her thoughts, unexcitable, quiet in demeanour all her natural attractions under a regulated control-they called her amiable-they called her inexperienced-they called her more wanting in energy and cold-hearted, and wondered at my being caught by such an apparently quiet untried person, so entirely unlike themselves-Such was the darling of my heart when I brought her to an intimate intercourse with my family; or rather what she was supposed to be by them. The first of these dear sisters, was my quiet intimate Lucy. She had only a short time before become a plain Quaker in the plainest of garbs with an ardent, enthusiastic, most sensitive nature underneath- Maria had never known a Quaker; hardly seen one - & therefore was more than commonly anxious how they could even opinionate – or cultivate an intimacy. Lucy was several years older than Maria and I therefore expected she would have proved a kind of Mentor – but her change had dissipated that hope and I greatly feared would have prevented a union friendship, much hoped for. The warm heartedness, the gentleness-good sense of Lucy soon drew forth congeniality, and opened the heart of my wife: and I had the unsurpassable happiness to observe the closest friendship and intimacy created. This was almost enough for me, but with this arose spontaneously; the early above confidence, the same connection, the same close intimacy with all my sisters: (Catherine, Mrs Gurney was gone & Mrs Wakefield particularly took her to her affections, and it was no mean merit to obtain her approbation.

Very soon after our marriage, we received an invitation to Earlham, the Gurney’s home, then with all the family in full flow of happiness and youth. They were then all under quaker rule and habits – brilliant in capacity, in high exhibition, with natural open-heartedness, so that my Maria was received with the warmest feelings; and, as I continued to anticipate, became her object of sincere affection with complete confidential intimacy, and high value- These impressions and connections never had suspense or relaxation this year and years afterwards – Now, even now, in a letter of one of the number, a Brethren, he terms her his honored Aunt. This juncture is sufficient to convince how she was beloved by all my connections. It now becomes a duty, both to her memory, and my own satisfaction to display her characteristic, natural and accomplished fable as my abilities are to do her justice. Nature had been immeasurably lavish in her gifts, sweetness of temper, cheerfulness of disposition, playful, even humorous; never irascible, but sensitive of wrong and quick in correction.

How often have poor I received her words of admonition and advices. “Now, husband, I will give it you’re well.” “I gave it rather well this morning, stupid, forgetful.”! There was no ill-humour, it was momentary warmth vanishing as quickly as it formed utterances. Her mind appeared to be composed of wonderful stability; there were no bursts of feeling; never increasingly high, nor despairingly low; deeply conversant with all kinds of literature, most extensively read on all subjects, her conversation was rather valuable with her intimates, and always entertaining, enthusiastic, and attractive to strangers. The love of Music shewed itself from a child; she had a sweet, soft voice, and tho’ not a highly finished performer, her concert ear and refined taste gave to her performances a most pleasing affect – She was a great acquisition to her family circle on this account, they were all musical, and got up delightful domestic concerts. She was a great admirer of theatrical talents, and enjoyed very much what she all her life liked to  talk over with me, the fine acting of Mrs Siddons[xxxvi], Miss Farren, Mrs Crouch, Mrs Jordan in their high walks, and the humour of Banister, Edwin, Suet and Parsons. She entered with great glee into the mimicry her brothers used so irresistibly to amuse the family with. This was fine unsophisticated taste, not the love of pleasure. She possessed great activity of mind; there was no apathy, fine feelings, acute sensitivity, but always under associated Influence. This characteristic was remarkable in her visit to Ireland, where we passed nearly 12 months with her beloved daughter, Eliza Bolton. The vivacity, the uncontrolled exuberance, the apparent open sincerity of the Irish ladies never discomposed her evenness, her composure; and she made impressions on the society of respect and regard. I shall now look at her in a far different sphere indeed. Previous to the Irish town, and for many years she had occupied her talents and the spirit of her mind, when she had 15 or 16 pupils under her care and tuition along with her daughters. Most successful indeed was this trying career, not only in temporals but in returning these young ladies secondly educated; their minds brought to impressions, and reflections; pressured from vanity and outward show. There was a laudable emulation produced without exciting envy. Thus her fine temper and sweetness of disposition had their full effects in gaining the highest respect and affection, not only during the period of education, but in after life. I cannot recollect an instance of any of them who did not, and now do not show their attachment, fondness, and high respect for their instructoress. This has continued for years, exhibited by presents, correspondence and visits whenever opportunity occurred. These recollections naturally lead me to say a few words of her as a Mother and my pen becomes almost suspended as in a superfluous destiny. They who have seen the fruits of her care, tenderness, wisdom, love of order (which refined minds can alone understand) feel the happy beneficial results of her maternal affection- and I have only to ask, as justly due to them, of numerous connections, and a host of valuable friends if they do not all of them reflect in shining characters the value of their dearest Mother and Friend. Take her now in the sphere of friendships. It may be easily imagined from what I have portrayed, that she had a glowing heart for its sacred impulses, and it shows forth in a striking manner thro’ her life. Her girlish attachments, her womanly attachments were many, lasting, and strong. For many years these feelings were hosted with unshaken constancy, to the closest intimacy with two ladies, unknown to each other and different in character, but both votaries of the same attraction. A constant cover – prudence was unremittingly cultivated for years and years, even to a few days before her attack. There was an agreement existing, that this correspondence should be returned upon the departure of either. One lady has desired that hers may be burnt. The others remain undecided now. She always smiled at me when I gave these letters to her: ”ah dear! Never mind, tho’ you know they are my sweet-hearts.

She was greatly beloved by her servants during some 40 years she had raly there, besides her valuable attendant upon her death-bed; who never hardly left the room, & who understood her imperfect words. She, as she said herself, could scold them, but the more she did so in (no scalding) the more they loved her. They retired, not sent away; one more than 15 years ago, is now in deep sorrow & appreciation in this case. No birthday, or wedding day ever passed over without a beautiful cake, or something nice from her (a fine cook & confectioner) ( to return to her friendships.) In one of her early attachments (tho’ after our marriage, my wife received a severe shock in the death of a lady in child-bed – Mrs Sampson was a neighbour in Clapton terrace, a lovely, most delightful, engaging person-she and Maria became closely intimate and attached. Two years only passed over their intercourse, but it was constant, and tended to the happiness of both. This dear lady almost died in my arms; my wife was in her confinement, or I am sure she would have expired in hers.

Her youthful attachments were equally strong and lasting, fixed and powerful. Miss Payars, afterwards Mrs Higginson, was her very early intimate & valuable friend-Susan Neave, afterwards Mrs Batt, devoted to her as a sister in her younger days, and for a great many years afterwards. These appreciations came before my interest took part – Another affectionate union of feeling was strikingly alive with Agatha[xxxvii], the elegant, accomplished, generally accomplished grand-daughter of David Barclay, and the wife of Samson Hanbury. She doated on my wife, always held her in first estimation, and left her a legacy. Another name I cannot forget or omit – Mrs Masterman, a near relation of mine, became, soon after my marriage, very intimate, & closely attached. Many many happy days we used to pass under her roof. One other my pen must not refuse to speak of. There was no one who loved her more, or showed more affectionate interest and esteem than Elizabeth Fry. David Barclay himself the aged Head of Quakers, and an extensive family, and one looked upon as almost unapproachable, soon after we were married had her to his house, became communicative, and familiar and even flattered me with the acquisition I had made. His picture has called forth these recollections.

I now take leave of connections, and I just touch upon common casual acquaintances, an extensive field; whether as a farmer’s wife in Essex; whether as a Schoolmistress at Hornsey and Kensington; whether as a Lady in the chamber of a 14 years confinement, these were numerous, enchained to her society, attracted by her abilities, and affectionate demeanour-And those who have for years cultivated an intimacy, by visiting at Kensington, are in their grief at her loss, affording a true proof of their high regard.

In this class, my own friends must not be forgotten. (Clergymen, sportsmen, business gentlemen; who loved her more than my old friend Jacob? Who revered her more than Dillin, regenerate and unregenerate Enough, Enough – however! I hardly know how to touch my most heavy trials and afflictions; but I must do so, but only to display another proof of her submission to the will of God in every one of his dispensations. [two lines then heavily crossed out]

In various attitudes I have endeavoured to exhibit how much my wife was beloved, esteemed, respected, even looked up to, both in youth and full maturity. It behoves me now therefore to describe (if I can) the kind of character combining these attributes. There was no exuberance of mind-it was all simplicity; there was no want of ardency, or of feeling – there was a stability of mind, rarely equalled whether arising from nature, or from early taught self-procurement, it was never shaken off its centre. Her thirst after knowledge; & extensive reading, carried on from time to time, established a consistency of character; with such a soundness of thought, and depth of solid, quiet connection of general principles of right, it was no wonder her society; her instructive, experienced observations, joined as they were to a cheerful, animated, entertaining manner of imparting knowledge, led to the general respect and admiration she obtained. I have said she had friends and connections loving her, and I can say, with one exception however, that universal love was warmly returned. That exception was Self; there was never any devotion to that-She lived for others. Her aim, & the object of her thoughts were alone inspired by the desire of doing benefits to all around her. Her charity towards the faults and errors of others, without satire or search for censure, was the fruit of her true, generous, Christian convictions. And this conclusion leads me at once to delineate (again if I can) her religious aspirations, her constant unwavering devotedness to sacred truths. Her bible was her Back to rest upon, and as the development of its truth and sacred records warmed her soul, so it governed all her conclusions and actions. Indeed it became the source of that steadiness, that remarkable quiet “melody of heart,” which influenced the whole of her chequered career. She had been brought up, educated, nourished in strict Church of England principles and doctrines; and its discipline ever established a Rule in her heart, & she never swerved from its influence. Yet there never was a prejudiced feeling established – she was a liberal in her religious connections, and could, and did enjoy devotions from those strictly contained devotedness to church principles, exhibited by her own family. Still nothing could shake her constancy, in the duty of inculcating the true value of Church discipline on all her children. In her long life, and during her seclusions, she had in association, all kinds of Professions; High Church, Low Church, Quakers, Baptists, Independents, Converted Jews, even Catholics, & the extreme of divergence Plymouth Brethren, everyone in turn. She heard them, read of them, could take up a doctrine, or doubtful opinion, and ably argue its principles, or tendencies; but it never for a moment disturbed her steadfast convictions. Her religion was the main spring of her engaging character. It was “the keystone of the arch.” It made her contented, cheerful, wise, clear-headed; and was the express cause of all that was lovely and engaging. I am, and do feel warm in this delineation, & perhaps I may be said to have made use of strong expressions, somewhat too glowing perhaps; but I ask her daughters, whither truth does not authorize my energy; & I ask as her Biographer, her husband Jonathan Bell whether he can value her worth, her excellence, her devotedness enough, & he says “No:” “much as he did value them.” I do not mean that I was too warm in depicting her religious impressions – My language could not reach their true value. Perhaps I ought to go further, and show her daily abstraction, her daily simple means of devotion; but it wants no illustration. It was a perfect walk with God, I may say, thro’ life. However I cannot explain what I mean better than in these words

“I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, my Soul shall be joyful in my God, for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation; he has covered me with the Robe of Righteousness.” (Isiah 61:10)
 (This text is engraved on the Tombstone)

I cannot close this tribute to my wife’s memory in any way so well, as to describe her in the ….. dispensation of 14 years confinement to her two Rooms – arising from an affliction in the limbs – supposed to be a kind of Parallysis of the Muscles – at times, rendering much suffering – still, capable of relief from Medical treatment, particularly in the last 7 or 8 years under the skill of Dr. Bachelour, practising in the late administration of Homopathy.

The delineation of my wife’s character which I have attempted, tho’ faintly to exhibit is more fully realized in this visitation-the Resignation to the trial – the cheerfulness of her natural disposition never at any time losing its spirit- the entire absence of complaint, the perfect good humour & contentedness with her attendants & comforts – the pleasure she experienced in the society of her Relations & numerous friends by whom she was constantly visited greatly subdued the natural anxiety of myself & daughters-it almost dispelled the affect of such serious depreciation of her activity of both mind & body; to us appearing quite a wonder – only to be thankfully acknowledged to the merciful influence of glorious Providence-this was also remarkably displayed in her sight being preserved to her great comfort- reading without any external aid (atho’ one eye was almost dim) – her power of working was continued to her – both, to the very last day before her attack.

Just 17 days before Japan surrendered to the Allies on Aug. 14. 1945, HMCS Uganda slipped away from the fighting in the Pacific and headed home to the naval base at Esquimalt B.C.
It was not a happy voyage, to say the least. Six weeks earlier, (600 sailors out of Uganda's crew of 900 had voted not to volunteer to continue the war against the Japanese, even though they'd spent five months fighting the enemy as part of the 4th Cruiser Squadron of the British Pacific Fleet.
Astonishingly, the RCN's most powerful ship of the Second World War was "the only ship in recorded naval history whose own company had actually voted her out of a war." wrote Tony German in his 1990 book The Sea is at Our Gates.- A History of the Canadian Navy.
Uganda's executive officer, L.Cdr Ernest (Chad) Chadwick was mortified. After spending almost all of the war at sea fighting the Germans and the Japanese, he felt he deserved to be present at the end to help finish the job.
The trouble started when Prime Minister Mackenzie King, mindful that a federal election would be held in June of 1945, decreed that only volunteers would be sent to the Pacific theatre of operations. He arrived at his decision against all military advice. When the news reached Uganda, there was general incredulity and the crew immediately took sides in a bitter difference of opinion.
Mr. Chadwick, the ship's second-in-command, tried his best to convince his shipmates to sign on the dotted line and stay m the war, but many sailors were fed up for a variety of reasons.
Uganda had been built for northern climates and was badly ventilated, which made living difficult in the heat of the Far East. Fresh water was always In short supply and the food, provided by the Royal Navy, was poor.
"Canadian sailors weren't alone in their discomfort. Most had endured tough years at sea, growled and got on with it. They'd signed on to fight. If they were told to go somewhere they'd go. But give anyone in any fleet the choice of the Pacific war or going home, wrote Mr. German.
Naval headquarters in Ottawa didn't know what to do. How could they quickly replace 600 men? What about the 300 who wanted to stay? Suddenly, they were entitled to 30 days leave back home before shipping out to the Pacific again. The controversy was an administrative disaster, so the brass decided to take the easy way out and recall Uganda.
The son of an Anglican clergyman who wanted him to study medicine, Chad Chadwick grew up in Victoria. The call of the sea proved too strong, and he spent most of his free time sailing his open sloop in the waters off Vancouver Island. By then, he had also started producing accomplished watercolours and drawings.

Al 17, he decided he wanted to be a naval officer and passed the entrance examination for the Royal Navy's Vindictive program, which trained young men from the dominions for a career in the "Senior Service." There were no opportunities for him in the RCN of that era, since it boasted less than a dozen ships.

After graduating, he was posted to HMS Revenge, a battleship sporting 15-inch guns. In August of 1939, he and Revenge took part in the reserve fleet review, where King George VI inspected the ships preparing for war. "I was midshipman of [Revenge's] launch at the time and distinctly recall lying to and saluting as the Royal Barge steamed down the lines, and meeting King George's eyes as he passed a few yards away," wrote Mr. Chadwick.
The Second World War erupted the following month and by 1941 Mr Chadwick had transferred to the RCN. His first ship was HMCS Skeena, where he earned a "mention in dispatches" for his part in the sinking of U-588 in the North Atlantic on July 31, 1942. "This officer displayed great coolness and skill during the long period of attacks under difficult conditions." the citation read "He proved himself to be capable of rapid and accurate thinking."
After Skeena, Mr. Chadwick served on Gatineau, a River-class destroyer he got to command for 39 glorious days at the end of 1943. He was just 22, and was at that time the RCN's youngest commanding officer. His tender age didn't prevent him from growing a luxurious beard, though. He kept it for the rest of his life.
And then came HMCS Uganda, 11,700-tonne cruiser originally commissioned by the Royal Navy in 1942 and acquired by the RCN two years later. With the latest steam turbines and nine six inch guns, the Uganda should have been the hardest-hitting ship In the fleet. Instead, after the so-called "mutiny," the cruiser meekly set a course for home.
What should have been a triumphant return became a sad and pathetic voyage. Stopping in Pearl Harbour to refuel, Uganda was ignored by the U.S. Navy, wrote Marc Milner in his 1999 book Canada's Navy: The First Century. "No admirals paid their respects, no bands played, and no ceremony was observed."
For Mr. Chadwick, the whole sorry episode left an unpleasant taste in his mouth. "With our tails between our legs and wounded pride we slunk back to Esquimalt," he wrote decades later in an unpublished memoir. "The salt was real, rubbed in our wounds when we were greeted in Esquimalt by bands playing and cheering crowds "welcome back, you heroes!' I, and I am sure, most of my shipmates, had great difficulty in looking anyone in the eye."
Even so, he decided to make the navy his post-war career. On Sept. 27. 1947, assumed command of HMCS St. Stephen. A sailor's sailor who led by example, his orders were to take the river-class frigate to the Labrador Sea and provide weather forecasts for the International Civil Aviation Organization. The airlines had started flying over the Atlantic and needed accurate weather reports.
Transmitting every three hours and assisting aircraft with radar fixes - when the radar actually worked, Mr. Chadwick noted acidly in a memoir he and his crew coped with the atrocious weather on Station Baker usually encountered between Greenland and Labrador. He loved it, though, because it was an independent command and no one was looking over his shoulder.
For the next two years, he recorded his daily battle with the elements."22 Dec. 1947: Wind still rising from NW up to 85. Heaviest seas yet during morning and forenoon, Every rivet shrieking with strain ... frequently rolling over 49 degrees to leeward with frightful buffets - like driving into a brick wall."
During the Cold War Mr. Chadwick filled several staff positions but got plenty of sea time commanding two modern destroyers, Nootka and Sagnenay. It was the golden age of the post-war RCN, with the fleet boasting 20000 men and 50 ships. Captains like Mr. Chadwick were a vital part the fleet.
Immensely proud of sailor father, Nick Chadwick remembers him as a "bit of a martinet who wanted things done properly. He represents a link to an earlier age when service came first [and] being a gentleman was important. He epitomized an age when God and country meant some thing."
In 1968, Mr. Chadwick retired with the rank of commander after just 30 years of service. He was only 47 but the unification wars of the sixties, where Ottawa melded the three fighting services against enormous opposition, had left him depressed and he wanted out.
That might have been a mistake, said Nick Chadwick. “We got the impression that he regretted retiring. A couple of his friends made admiral and perhaps he could have achieved greater things.” The old Uganda, meanwhile had been sold for scrap though not before being re-commissioned HMCS Quebec.
Settling in Victoria, Mr. Chadwick returned to his paints and built a reputation as a marine artist. "His paintings captured the mystery of the sea, the beauty of birds of prey, sea buds and wildlife keenly observed." said his son Michael Chadwick. Over the years, he produced hundreds of works depicting birds and ships at sea in water-colour, oils and acrylics.

Ernest Maurice Chadwick was born in Victoria B.C. on May 6, 1921. He died there of natural causes on May 19, 2008. He was 87. He leaves daughters Diann and Creina and sons Michael, Richard and Nicholas. He was predeceased by his wife, Olga.


7.8    Rev Richard Chadwick


2nd son of Richard Chadwick & Rebecca Allard

Extracts received from John Kelly,  Hillview, Chadville, Cappawhite Co. Tipperary Ireland: J Kelly[xxxviii] 9/2002.

Extract from Toemverig by Áine Ryan 1992 ie history of Toem in the parish of Cappawhite Co Tipperary

In 1781, Richard Chadwick was appointed curate to the Civil parish of Toem and Donohill in the Cashel Diocese Co. Tipperary Ireland until 1792.  He was then appointed Prebendary of Doon Co Limerick an adjoining parish.
The earliest allusion that we can find to the church that stood at Toem is in the Down Survey (1657), when it was stated to be in ruins. It was rebuilt after the Restoration, as appears from a church‑list of 1667‑70. From the middle of the 18th century Toem allusions are fairly numerous in the Visitation Books. It was in repair in 1744 and 1753.

In 1780 it was reported that the church, churchyard, books and vestments were in very bad order, while in the following year there was said to be "no church." However, some repairs were effected., from 1782 it was described as been in excellent order. In 1784 the Rural Dean complained that boys played handball against the church, “which is indecent . We can hardly blame them for utilizing such a tempting surface of bare wall. This practice went on with respect to other churches in the diocese, but in one instance at least a stop was put to this by the simple expedient of ploughing up the ground where the ball hopped. In 1788 it was reported that the pulpit and the pew belonging to the Rev. R. Chadwick (who resided at Chadville) were in good order, but that the remaining pews were in decay as the parishioners would not take the trouble to get them mended. In 1777 and 1797 the outside was being repaired, while the interior was in a very bad way; however, in 1805 matters were improved in this respect. Yet, in 1834 the church is described as ruinous, impossible to repair, and inconveniently situated, and it was then proposed that a new one should be erected on the townland of Cappawhite; this proposal was not carried out. Nothing was done immediately, for Lewis, writing three years later, says: "The Church is a small dilapidated building, and it is in contemplation to erect another; in the meantime service is performed in Cappagh House." The latest church must have been erected shortly after this, though we have not been able to find out the exact date. Subsequently to the erection of Donohill church in 1856 (Aghacrew) service was held in the two simultaneously, but Toem gradually fell into disuse, and for some years before 1880 was only used for occasional services. A baptism was administered there as late as 1886. It was taken down about 1890 as in the Vestry Book a resolution stands under that year to the effect that the bell which formerly hung in the tower should be sold to the Rev. W.H. Lindesay, L.L.D., for four pounds while three years later portion of the money realised by the sale of the materials was used to repair the roof of Donohill church. The tower still remains, a conspicuous object in the landscape.

Richard Chadwick MA collated July 20tth. Installed August 4th.. He resigned on 29th January 1811 for the parish of Doon Co Limerick


In 1781 Richard Chadwick was curate of Doon Union

From the 4th Ecclesiastical Commission Report for Ireland in 1838:"Doone Glebe House and offices in excellent order, built under the old acts in 1800 at the cost of six hundred and forty six pounds, three shillings and one penny. But of which sum ninety two pounds six shillings and two pennies was granted in way of a gift by the late Board of First Fruits, and the residue of five hundred and fifty three pounds, sixteen shillings and 11 pennies was supplied out of the private funds of the builder (Rev Richard Chadwick) to whom the present incumbent (Rev Charles Coote) is second in succession, and having paid his predecessor four hundred and fifteen pounds seven shillings and eight and a half pennies on account of the sum last named and since expended £1,053 British in improvements under cert­ificate, he will be entitled to receive £1,066 thirteen shillings and five and a half pennies from his successor, on account of the building and improvement changes. Incumbent is constantly resident in the glebe‑house."


This house was two storeys over a basement with a southerly aspect. The main entrance was from the Knocknacarriga side with a sweeping drive through the lawn on which still stands many beautiful mature trees. There is a completely enclosed court‑yard directly at the back of the house, one side of this is taken up by a protruding wing from the back of the house, with the other two wings taken up by stables and staff quarters. Because the house is built on a steep north sloping hill there are fine brick vaulted out‑houses and cellars under the left hand wing of the courtyard, these are connected by an unusual passageway to the house itself. 30 metres to the east is a fine kitchen‑garden much intact. The outline of a large conservatory to the right of the house when facing it can still be traced. It also had tennis courts and a billiard room and tradition has it that there was a Mass Path through the yard during the Penal Times.

The house was maliciously burnt down during the 'troubles' and is beyond repair, but as is usual with a lot of these country houses, the stables and outbuildings are in remarkably good condition.

The Betrayal and Execution of Paddy Grace

  By John J. Hassett

Richard Chadwick 1800-1827 a local magistrate as well as weight master in Tipperary and land agent for Billy Sadlier of Sadliers Wells, Tipperary, was a man of some importance in social and property circles in West and Mid Tipperary in 1827. His uncle, Billy Sadlier was landlord of considerable properties in County Tipperary and an active supporter and promoter of the Orange Order in Tipp Town. Chadwick resided at Reddins Walk, Tipperary, was about twenty-seven years of age and as weightmaster of Tipperary Town and district as well as a land agent, enjoyed a good income.

As a land agent he was firm by the standards of the time. He was in his second year in that capacity when he began to experience difficulty with some tenants on the Sadlier lands at Rathcannon. Evictions followed which led to unrest and the burning of a house and a few lots of hay. As a magistrate, Chadwick had the power to transfer police to the area. In May 1827 he had permission to erect a police barrack at Rathcannon, to curb and monitor the activities of secret societies operating in the area. On the last day of June 1827 he was in Rathcannon, to supervise the marking out of the foundations for the building to house the police, where the Balicourt in that townland now stands on the road linking Bohernacrusha to Clogher and Clonoulty. Having completed some rent collections the previous day and earlier on that Saturday morning of June 30th 1827, he arrived on the site at Rathcannon, about 1 1.20 am. The foreman on the site was Philip Mara, who with two of his brothers and nine locals were part of the building team present and ready to start work. At noon the first sod of the site was dug. Philip Mara the foreman was a tenant of Sadlier's, had difficulty meeting his rent, and was under pressure from Chadwick around December of 1826. After the usual deliberations in the wake of the cutting of the first sod, Chadwick, accompanied by Mara and a Malachy Neale proceeded towards Holycross; another worker, Gleeson, was also with them.
Feehan and Ryan were left in charge of the other six workers. After about eighty yards Gleeson turned and went back to the building site. When Chadwick had proceeded a further hundred yards he looked back and saw the men idling and sent Malachy Neale to put them to work. It was the last order he was to give on earth. Their business in travelling to Holycross was to purchase culm. When midway between where Rathcannon Balicourt is and Bohernacrusha, Chadwick leading his horse and Mara walking beside him were accosted by a gunman who demanded they give themselves up. Turning to Chadwick the gunman said "give yourself up you rascal!" Mara pleaded with the gunman not to shoot Chadwick when suddenly a second gunman shot Chadwick who then said, "Oh Mara I'm shot", he went on to say "I am killed". Mara ran from the scene to Bohernacrusha Page 89about 400 yards away, glancing back only after hearing a second shot. Mara proceeded to inform Mr. Lloyd and Captain Wilson who called the police. Chadwick's body was brought to Ned Carey's house. On examination of the body three wounds were visible to the head, hip and breast; any one of them would have been fatal. The drama of early afternoon ending in the death of Richard Chadwick at about 12.50p.m. resulted in a murder hunt starting about 4 pm the same day. No one of about forty people in Bohernacrusha village responded to Mara's alarming news immediately after the shooting except to retreat indoors. The building site to which Mara, one would consider, should have gone first, and from which the shots could easily be heard was close by, but this did not result in workers rushing to the scene to offer help. The alleged two gunmen left the scene of the crime and calmly faded into the high-hedged fields of the countryside. The police from Thurles arrived in Bohernacrusha around 4 pm. Chadwick's body had been moved to Ned Carey's house and a medical examination of it took place and a murder hunt was initiated. Mara was put under close examination by Lloyd and Wilson as well as the police. Realising he was a prime suspect, he identified Paddy Grace as one of the two alleged gunmen, and went on to give a dramatic account of Chadwick's killing. When it became apparent after a few days that Mara was an informer he was given police protection. On Mara's information twenty-six year old Paddy Grace was arrested on Sunday morning July 1st 1827 at about 4 am by the police on suspicion of involvement in the murder of Richard Chadwick. Grace was the eldest of four brothers and three sisters all residing in their parents home at Ballytarsna. They farmed forty acres of quality land at Old Road, Ballytarsna, close to Ballytarsna Castle, Their dwelling was almost opposite the current residence of Owen Bennett. Grace was a noted foe of landlord oppression and would be known as such to the police. His family were good farmers and by the standards of the time were better educated and financially stronger than the average tenant farmer. Paddy, as the eldest son, had marked out a site for a new house beside Ballytarsna Castle a few days prior to Chadwick's death. On the morning of Chadwick's killing, according to his brother John in court evidence, Paddy and he were shovelling clay up to potatoes, known as 'earthing' them. Tradition has it that Grace was about to get married and the site where his new home was to be, is still visible today one hundred and seventy two years later. As suspicion grew that Philip Mara had turned informer a fury and hatred of great intensity grew towards him and his family. Grace on arrest was conveyed to Thurles and on Monday July 2nd brought to the Bridewell in Cashel. As a highly popular, respected, and in some places, a feared man, his arrest was a cause of excitement and anger among the people.
They were volatile times in County Tipperary especially mid-Tipperary, as campaigns against the payments of tithes to the established Protestant Church and for further

 Page 90

reform of the law restricting Catholics' involvement in certain State activities were under way. On Wednesday June 17th 1827 at 6 pm a party of men attacked James and William Scott of Ballagh on their return from valuing tithes for Rev. Pobert Carew Armstrong, Rector of Ballintemple. They seized their valuation books.
James Scott was severely beaten, though an old man, and William, who ran away, was shot at and seriously wounded. On Saturday 30th as Chadwick was being killed at Rathcannon two men named Davern and Ryan, also tithe valuers, were attacked by another party of men near Knockaville. Both men were on the anti tithe group's list as enemies of their cause. On Monday July 2nd close to Tipperary town a man conveying a load of potatoes was accosted and his potatoes taken from, him by a mob. On Friday August ]7th the trial of Paddy Grace was held in the Criminal Court at Clonmel. The Solicitor General, Mr. Doherty, and a high powered legal team acted for the Crown. judge Burton and a jury comprised of Orangemen presided. Mr. Hatchell K.C. an able barrister, defended Grace. Philip Mara was the key witness for the prosecution. He knew Grace, was a member, with his brothers, of the secret society which Grace controlled. Mara probably supplied Grace with the information on Chadwick's presence in Rathcannon and knew that a plan to kill Chadwick as a result of his actions against tenants was in place. The remarkable return of Gleeson and Malachy Neale to the building site after accompanying Chadwick and Mara a short distance two minutes before Chadwick was accosted was suspicious also. Mara was in protective custody from early July and maintained firmly his account of events, and his identification of Grace as the man who accosted them. The Holycross stone mason became the object of ridicule, scorn and hatred immediately. Edmund Kelly for the defence stated that Mara in his presence stated at Christmas 1826 that Chadwick should be met and killed, to ease the woe of the Rathcannon tenants. William Burke and Michael Ryan who were cutting soil, possibly turf, close to the Rathcannon river the day Chadwick was shot, saw two gunmen who warned them not to tell the police they passed that way; neither of them was Grace. The judge in a careful summing up to the jury outlined the legal issues and highlighted the aspects of the case they had to address. Within fifteen minutes of retiring they returned a guilty verdict. Sentence of death was passed by the judge to which Grace replied in a firm voice, "welcome be the grace of God." He was immediately moved under a massive military guard to the local jail. On Monday August 20th 1827 under a heavy military escort he was moved from Clonmel jail at 5 am bound to a common car for conveyance to Rathcannon for execution. The convoy comprised of the police in a circle around the car to which Grace was bound, and a company of the 58th regiment then in Clonmel. Ahead of them were two vehicles containing the scaffold on which Grace was to be executed and at the rear the hangman surrounded by a party of police. Despite the early

 Page 91

hour, 5.30 am, from Clonmel to Rathcannon people gathered in vast numbers to witness the final trip of Paddy Grace to his place of execution. At ten o'clock the convoy reached Cashel where fresh military reinforcements comprised of a company of rifles and a troop of Scots Greys from Cahir relieved the Clonmel escort.
At Cashel, Grace was led into the Bridewell by Captain Wilcox who was attentive and kind to the prisoner. Grace took some refreshments including bread, wine and water offered him by the Captain. just before noon the procession left Cashel. All along the route to Rathcannon huge crowds joined the convoy. At Tubberadora the convoy halted to let Grace have a final look at Ballytarsna. At 2.45 pm they reached Rathcannon. While the scaffold was being erected Grace met his family and spoke to them for about ten minutes. With the prison chaplain he spent several minutes in prayer before ascending the scaffold. In a brief address delivered in a firm voice he advised against drunkenness, vice and crime, which were contrary to the laws of God. He also, according to tradition, condemned the system that made people act in the manner which he had done. In a veiled hint, he said, "before 1 am twelve months in my grave, things will happen over which we will have no control." His words were to prove prophetic. After Grace concluded, the prison chaplain as if surprised at his words, uttered a firm warning to all and sundry against involvement in Secret Societies. Within seconds of the Rev. Brennan concluding, the hangman did his job and Grace was dropped to his death. His brothers prayed beneath the scaffold and were granted permission to take down his body. They embraced his remains and requested that they be allowed to bury it in Ballytarsna at little Church. This was refused and the body was returned to Cashel Fever Hospital for dissection. Tradition has it that members of the secret society with the co-operation of some medical staff removed Grace's body from the hospital for burial in Boytonrath. Within weeks of Grace being laid to rest things began to happen over which he had no control, a story that must await for another year to tell. Paddy Grace was the last person to be executed in Ireland at the location of the crime. He was a defender of his people against a cruel system who paid the supreme sacrifice for his actions on behalf of an impoverished downtrodden community.

7.11Sally Chadwick

Daughter of Thomas of Barnascounce, son of Richard & Rebecca (Allard) Chadwick.

From Hugh Casement March 2003.
Sally Chadwick and George Casement:-
he was the 4th and youngest son of George Casement, naval surgeon, of Larne, Co. Antrim, younger son by his 2nd wife Martha Montgomery.  He was thus a half-brother of Maj.Gen. Sir William Casement of the supreme council of India. He was b. in Larne 1 May 1788 and d. at Mhow, Indore, 1 Nov. 1822; they m. at Bareilly 16 Apr. 1821.  George was in the 21st Native Infantry.
      She m. James Graham at Agra 24 Feb. 1823, less than 4 months after George's death.  An indecently short period of mourning by our standards, but women of a marriageable age were in great demand in India and under considerable pressure.
      I came across a story of a sergeant who proposed to a widow when she got home from burying her husband.  She burst into tears, and he apologized for his undue haste.  Turned out that the reason for her distress was that she'd already accepted an offer at the graveside -- from a mere corporal!
      I believe James Graham came from Drumbo, Co. Down.

From Hugh Casement, 29/3/2003:
I've been sent the following details of Surgeon James Graham:

b. 28.1.1797.  MD Edinbgh. Ass. Sgn 1.20; Sgn. 9.30; killed by mutineers
Sialkot 9.7.57.
In actions: Gwalior 43-4 (battle of Panier); 1st Sikh 45-6 Sobraon and
Fierozeshahar; 2nd Sikh 48-9 siege of Multan.

I don't know where my correspondent got it from, and presume it refers to the one who m. Sally Casement, née Chadwick.  Apparently he was the son of William Graham of Drumbo, Co. Down (about 10 km S. of Belfast, near Lisburn).

Do you happen to know the date of the marriage?  I was told that the card index at the India Office says it took place in Agra on 24 Feb. 1823.  According to Hodson's List of Officers of the Bengal Army, George Casement d. 1 Nov. 1823.
Hodson could have mistaken the year, but there's further evidence: in the East India Directory for 1825 is a rather belated announcement of the birth of a son to the lady of Capt. G. Casement on 15 Mar. 1823.  Even if it was a posthumous child (and Graham wasn't claiming paternity) I doubt she'd have been described like that if she'd already remarried.  I conclude that George must really have d. in late 1823, and Sally remarried in 1824 (or even 1825).

Admittedly, there were other G. Casements alive in 1823, but this particular George was the only one both in India and of an age to be fathering children.

Do you know anything about that son?  It was news to me; either d. in infancy or was adopted by Graham, I would think.  Unfortunately E.M.C. doesn't give dates of birth for the Graham children.

Where I think E.M.C. may have made a mistake is in the date of Phoebe's marriage, which I copied from your web site as 1841.  I believe they m. at Meerut on 14 Apr. 1847.  He's in the Dictionary of Indian Biography and his family in Burke's Landed Gentry under Dingwall-Fordyce.

Also in Hodson is Col. Thomas Chadwick (1789-1861), 2nd son of Thomas of Barnascounce.  His sister m. Charles Hamilton Bell of the Bengal Army. 
Presumably that means Bell is also listed -- unfortunately I don't have the books.

An entry in the Irish Times of 19 Dec 1870 gives the meets for Mr Chadwick’s Harriers, including at Ballinard Tuesday 27th.
This family originally settled in county Meath in the 17th century but following the appointment of William Cooper as Registrar of the Diocese of Cashel, one branch settled at Killenure Castle, county Tipperary in the mid 18th century. William Cooper by his wife Jane Wayland had two sons Samuel of Killenure, agent to the Maude, Damer and Erasmus Smith Schools estates and Austin, an antiquarian and agent to a number of landlords including the 2nd Earl of Leitrim, Baron Milton and Viscount Hawarden. In the mid 19th century Samuel Cooper held land in the parishes of Kilmaleery and Kilnasoolagh, barony of Bunratty Lower, and Kilseily, barony of Tulla Lower, county Clare. The main part of the Cooper estate was in county Tipperary, in the parishes of St Johnbaptist, barony of Middlethird, Cullen and Solloghodbeg, barony of Clanwilliam, Donohill and Oughterleague, barony of Kilnamanagh Lower. In November 1854 the interest of Patrick J. O'Kearney and others in the lands of Ballywalter was advertised for sale, Samuel Cooper was the tenant. He held on a lease dated 28 December 1852. In the 1870s Samuel Cooper of Killenure, Cashel, county Tipperary, owned 826 acres in county Tipperary and 344 acres in county Clare. His brother was Richard Austin Cooper Chadwick. [Another brother William L. Cooper of England owned 727 acres in county Tipperary].

Charleville, Queensland, Australia

I have just come across your website while undertaking some of my own family tree research.  I was searching using ‘George Ogle Moore’ and came across this section of your site;

I believe the Rev Ogle William Moore you mentioned, may be one of the sons of George Ogle Moore. Another son, John emigrated to Australia and is my g/g/great grandfather. George himself was MP for Dublin 1826-1831. He married Elizabeth Armstrong. Does this sound like your Rev Ogle Moore?

7.13The Ancient History of the Surname Chidwick found on this site 4/2007.

The chronicles of England, shrouded by the mists of time, reveal the early records of the name Chidwick as a Norman surname which ranks as one of the oldest. The history of the name is interwoven in the colourful fabric which is part of the history of Britain.

Careful research by professional analysts using such ancient manuscripts as the Domesday Book (compiled in 1086 by William the Conqueror),  the Ragman Rolls, the Wace poem, the Honour Roll of the Battle Abbey, The Curia Regis, Pipe Rolls, the Falaise Roll, tax records, baptismal records, family genealogies and local parish records shows the first record of the name Chidwick was found in Staffordshire where they were seated from very early times and were granted lands by the Duke William of Normandy their liege lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Many alternate spellings were found.  They were typically linked to a common root,  usually one of the Norman nobles at the Battle of Hastings. The name Chidwick occurred in many references, and from time to time, the surname included the spellings Chadwick, Chadwicks, Chadwicke, Chadwyck, Chaddick, Chadwich, Chedwick, and many more.  Scribes recorded and spelled the name as it sounded. It was not unlikely that a person would be born with one spelling, married with another, and buried with a headstone which shown yet another. All three spellings related to the same person. Sometimes preferences for difference spelling variations either came from a division of the family or for religious reasons or sometimes for patriotic reasons.

The family name Chidwick is believed to be descended from the Norman race.  They were commonly believed to be of French origin but were more accurately of Viking origin.  The Vikings landed in the Orkneys and Northern Scotland about the year 870 A.D., under their Chief Stirgud the Stout. Later, under their Jarl, Thorfinn Rollo, they invaded France about 940 A.D. After they laid siege to Paris, the French king Charles the Simple finally conceded defeat and granted northern France to Rollo. Rollo became the first Duke of Normandy, the territory of the north men. Duke William who invaded and defeated England in 1066 was descended from the first Duke Rollo of Normandy.

Duke William took a census of most of England in 1086, and recorded it in the Doomsday Book. A family name capable of being traced back to this document or to Hastings, was a signal of honour and for most families during the middle ages and even to this day.

The surname Chidwick emerged as a notable English family name in the county of Staffordshire where they were recorded as a family of great antiquity seated at Rideware with manor and estates in that shire. They were descendant from the Archbishop of Rheims through the renowned Sir Guy Mauvoisin surnamed le Barbu living in 1080 at Rosny in Nantes in Normandy. They moved to Lancashire settling in Chadwick in Spotland. Adam Bamford, Lord of the manor of Chadwick, rented lands to William Chadwick of Chadwick in 1335. They continued to hold property in Healy in Lancashire and Marvesyn (Mauvoisin) and Rideware in Staffordshire. By the 16th century they had acquired Switon Hall in Lancashire which became the main branch of the family. This branch in turn acquired Puddleston Court in the county of Hereford. Notable amounst the family at this time was Chadwick of Swinton Hall.

The surname Chidwick contributed much to the local politics and in the affairs of England or Scotland. During the 12th century, many of these Norman families moved north to Scotland following Earl David of Huntingdon who would be become King of Scotland. Later, in the 16th, 17th and 18th centuries, England and Scotland ware ravaged by religious and political conflict.  The Monarchy, the church and parliament fought for supremacy. The unrest caused many to think of distant lands. Settlers in Ireland became known as "adventurers for land in Ireland". They "undertook" to keep the protestant faith and were granted lands previously owned by the Irish. In Ireland they settled in Ballinard in the county of Limeric, and Killenure Castle in county Tipperary. 

The attractions of the New World spread like wildfire. Many sailed abroad the fleet of sailing ships known as the "White Sails".

In North America, migrants which could be considered a kinsman of the family name Chidwick, or variable spellings of the name, included Charles Chadwick who settled in Salem Mass. in 1630, and an important branch of the family settled in Toronto, Canada.  Elizabeth Chadwick settled in Potomac Maryland in 1728. Elles, George, James, John, Joseph, Mathias, Nathaniel, Robert, Samuel, Thomas and William all arrived in Philadelphia between 1775 and 1850. From the port of arrival many settlers joined the wagon trains westward. During the War of Independence, some declare their loyalty to the Crown and moved northward into Canada and became known as the United Empire Loyalists.

Meanwhile, the family name was active in the social stream.  There were many notables of this name,  including

Sir Albert Chadwick
Very Rev. Henry Chadwick, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford.
Sir John Chadwick,
Lynn Chadwick, sculptor
Sir Burton Chadwick

Sir James Chadwick, F.R.S. physicist, collaborator in Atomic research, who discovered the neutron in 1932 which led to the production of the atomic bomb.

In the process of researching the Chidwick name, we also traced the most ancient grant of Coat of Arms from the branches which developed their own Arms,  which was "red with a small silver shield surrounded by eight silver birds".

The crest is a lily.

The ancient family motto is "In Candore Decus".

7.17Notes on Images

PHOTOS in FOLDER from Tim Ford[xxxix]


Its been a few years, but I thought the attached find would interest you.  Just returned from the UK (from my Mother's 90th birthday) and a quick rummage in her basement produced an album with a couple of penciled names.  #1 in the album was just labeled "Chadwick", and the studio had sites in Montreal, Ottawa and Halifax. 


#2-#5 (later in the album) were labeled "Fred Chadwick", "his wife", "their" and "children." The last two on adjacent pages with the final one also dated April 69.  #2-4 were taken at the same studio in Dublin, and #5 (dated) at a studio in Guelph.


#2 & 3 must be Frederick Jasper and Elizabeth Chadwick.  #4 & 5 might be the two girls, Louisa Caroline and Charlotte Rose taken at different times, first in Dublin then in Guelph, but the Dublin picture could also suggest a boy (from the hair, they used to wear dresses when very young), possibly Jasper William?  There was also Edward Ernest, but he only lived for six months, and the baby looks more like a one-year old (not that I'm a good judge of children).


I'd be interested in your thoughts.  Many other unidentified pictures in the album, with a few labels, including some Bostocks (from the Dillon/Bell connection) and Boltons.

Dublin Evening Mail - Friday 24 December 1847


[Gregory Lynch was a prominent Catholic parish priest in Dublin so this was a mixed marriage. Joseph Armstrong was William Chadwick’s brother-in-law, as per next entry. I did wonder if this was a source of scandal but the Bourchier entry in Burke’s Landed Gentry of Ireland and The Plantagent Roll of the Blood Royal: The Mortimer-Percy Volume (Heritage Books, 2013), available via Google Books, shows the Bourchiers of Baggotstown and the Chadwicks were related multiple times since the 18th century so I do not think there is anything untoward here …].


Edward Chadwick of Ballinard recorded as a juror at the trail of Thomas Francis Meagher in 1848. He was the Young Ireland leader and future governor of Montana.


The National Library of Ireland holds a copy of a grant of arms to Richard Cooper of Killenure Castle, Co. Tipperary and Catherine, elder daughter and co-heir of William Chadwick of Ballinard, Co. Tipperary on their assuming at marriage and under Royal Licence the name and arms of Cooper Chadwick, March 10, 1855.


‘January 2 [1856], at Ballinard, Tipperary, the residence of her brother, Wm. Chadwicke, Esq., Caroline, the beloved wife of the Rev. Joseph Armstrong, Incumbent of Rathronan, Clonmel.’ (The Cork Examiner, 9 January 1856)


William Chadwick involved in court case with Lady Caroline Damer over felling of trees at Ballinard as per The Irish Jurist, Volume 9 (E.J. Milliken, 1857), p. 494,


The National Library of Ireland holds a copy of confirmation of arms to the descendants of John Craven Chadwick of Ballinard, Co. Limerick (amended to Co. Tipperary) and to his grandson, Edward Marion Chadwick of Toronto, Canada, Dec. 10, 1873.


William Chadwick, had three daughters and when he died in 1876 he was succeeded by his son-in-law, Richard Austin Cooper, who assumed the additional name of Chadwick.



A universal feeling of regret has been called forth by the sad announcement of the death of Richard Austin Cooper-Chadwick, Esq, which took place at his residence, Ballinard, on Thursday last after a protracted illness. The deceased was one of the most popular gentlemen in Tipperary, and held in deserved esteem by all who knew him. His kindly and genial manner, and his highly honourable character in all the relations of life, won for him a host of friends, whose regard he retained to the last. His love of field sports while in health was of the keenest description, and his efficient mastership of the excellent pack of harriers, which he hunted will not soon be forgotten. To the last he also took the warmest interest in the agricultural affairs and welfare of Tipperary. A favourite with all classes, and most affectionately endeared to his family, with whom the sincerest sympathy is evinced his loss will be long felt and deeply mourned.

Waterford Chronicle - Wednesday 25 January 1893


CHADWICK—Aug 15, 1893, at 115 Lower Baggot Street, the wife of Major Cooper Chadwick, Ballinard, of a daughter. Dublin Evening Telegraph - Wednesday 16 August 1893



The outrage which was committed at the residence of Mrs. Cooper Chadwick. Ballinard, near Tipperary, on the 7th inst., when a formidable explosive was discharged at the lady’s hall door, is still enveloped in mystery. The missile was composed of a massive iron tube used in an axle-box for the wheel of dray cart, and was substantially secured by a bolt that ran through it from end to end. The explosion created consternation amongst the household, all of whom were in the house the time. The police are busily engaged inquiring into the matter.

Service record and RIC death notice attached


There are some references to him in newspapers concerning trials, arrests etc. Nothing particularly exciting. A Henry Chadwick 31063, also a Protestant from Cavan, joined the RIC in 1865. Possibly a brother?


The young ages at which both men joined suggest the father may have been in an earlier manifestation of the police, or a militia.


DEATH OF MR. WILLIAM CHADWICK. The death took place yesterday of Mr. William Chadwick, alter a long and painful illness. Mr. Chadwick will be remembered as a faithful and efficient Corporation official. In 1896 be was appointed superintendent of the municipal slaughterhouse, and it is doing the barest justice to his memory say that he revolutionised the former methods in connection with the place. He was respected by all for his firmness, impartiality, and conscientiousness. Some months ago he resigned the position owing to ill-health.

Londonderry Sentinel - Thursday 21 November 1907

[The RIC records state that this William Chadwick was born in 1844 in  Cavan and married in 1879 in Donegal, so he may be the wrong person.]






Summary from RIC Papers- 

Born circa 1835 in England, but joined the police from Tipperary. Possibly father William Shadwick was in Army?

Died 24 March 1881 whilst in service.  3 known children. Thomas William (1872), Charles (1874), Mary Kate (1877).

Served briefly in the Reserve (Dublin) then Roscommon until his death.  Was certainly in Roscommon Town for a period.

Service Record and confirmation of HC posting attached.


Born in England, Charles Shadwick (as he spelled it) was father to Grace’s grandfather. Linda White gave me a birth year of 1829 for him but the RIC records suggest 1835 with a question mark. He later joined the North Tipperary RIC. He was in Roscommon on 15 November 1851. His RIC records state he was married in Leitrim in 1869. He died suddenly in his 50s, early 50s maybe. The RIC records give his date of death as 1881.


Linda Notes: His wife died soon afterwards and their three children Tom, Charles and (Mary) Kate were placed under the guardianship of their uncle William in Dublin. He gave them a good education. Young Charles was put into the Hibernian Bank, probably by William, with a small private income. Unfortunately, Charles was a gambler and horse racing enthusiast, so William ‘washed his hands off him’. Charles married twice. He was a widower when he met his second wife, Linda’s granny. He lost his sight and became blind in later years.


Rather a disturbing one here Linda, sorry …

ROOSKEY PETTY SESSION'S A case attracting no little public attention was tried on Wednesday last, before Captain Hanly and Mr. Curran, R.M.. in which Constable Melia and Sub-Constable Shadwick. of the Tarmon station, summoned two men name Michael Cox and Edward Dooly, the latter for assaulting them and endeavouring to rescue the former whom they had arrested. Mr. Stritch appeared for the police and Mr. Harrison  for the defendants. There was also a cross case in which the constables were charged by Dooly, with having dragged him off his cart while, as he alleged, peaceably on his way home. His wife also preferred a charge against Constable Shadwick for beating her, from the effects of which, she stated, she was delivered of a still born child about three weeks after. The constable in return charged Dooly, and his wife and sifter, with striking him and breaking a bonnet case (a band boa?) on his head. The case against the police was dismissed while their opponents were bound over to appear at quarter sessions, Cox was fixed 1s and discharged.

Roscommon Messenger - Saturday 24 December 1859


Charles Shadwick, Effects £394. 28 February 1881 - Letters of Administration of the personal estate of Charles Shadwick late of Castlerea County Roscommon Head Con- stable R.I.C. deceased who died 24 March 1881 at same place were granted at Limerick to Mary Shadwick of Roscommon the widow.  


Mr Charles Chadwick, nephew of Mr Patrick Padin, J P, Ballyview Cottage, Wicklow, took first place at the recent examination for Clerkship in the Hibernian Bank. He was prepared by Mr Moriarty, Principal, National School, Wicklow. Mr Chadwick scored twenty-three marks higher than the second candidate.

Wicklow People - Saturday 09 February 1895



As a mark of their kindly feeling for Mr Charles Shadwick, Hibernian Bank, who has been promoted to an important position in the Cork branch, a number of his friends, chiefly belonging to the Town and County Club, entertained him to dinner in Dooly's Hotel on Thursday evening, the chair being occupied by Mr H.V. Goldon. Owing to the short notification of his transfer a large number were not aware of it, otherwise they would have joined very heartily in the compliment. The catering was carried out in his best style by the proprietor, Mr Clavin. After the cloth had been removed, a number of congratulatory speeches were delivered, and the guest of the evening replied expressing regret at his departure, and thanking them all for their kindness during his stay amongst them. A number of vocal selections were given at intervals, those of Mr H. J. Bergin evoking well deserved encore's. Before separating all joining in bidding Mr Shadwick farewell.

Leinster Reporter - Saturday 04 March 1899


The 1895 record for Charles Chadwick mentioned an uncle, Patrick Padin.


OBITUARY. MR. PATRICK PADIN, J.P., WICKLOW. An old and very respected citizen of Wicklow in the person of Mr. Patrick Padin, J.P., Summerhill, passed away to his reward on Sunday at the age of79 years. The deceased gentleman came to Wicklow many years ago and occupied the position of excise official in the town for a number of years. After his retirement he was made a Justice of the Peace and was elected a representative of the urban council and harbour boards, the duties of which positions he discharged with ability and skill. Of a courteous and obliging nature he was held in general affection by all classes and the news of his death was received with universal expressions of regret. He was in failing health for some time prior to his demise, and for the last two months he was altogether confined to his house. He leaves one daughter to mourn his loss, Sister Margaret Mary, a member of the Community of the Convent of Perpetual Adoration, Wexford, to whom we offer our condolence in her bereavement. Interment took place in Rathnew Cemetery on Tuesday afternoon, the funeral being large and representative of all classes in the town. Very Rev. John Canon Staples, P.P., V.F.,. assisted by Rev. William, Byrnes, P.P., officiated at the graveside. R.I.P.

In Loving Memory of | PATRICK PADIN Wicklow | who departed this life | on August the 23rd 1914 | aged 79 years | R.I.P.

On the base: - Most Sacred Heart of Jesus | have mercy on him.


My hunch is that Patrick Padin came from Roscommon where Edward Padin of Martyr lived, as per Edward’s creditors notice of Irish Times - Tuesday 08 December 1874 ... Could this explain the Roscommon link to Charles?



NB: Arravale Chadwicks

‘Patrick John Waldron, of Ballybrack, Co Dublin, and Charles Chadwick, Esq, of Arravale, Tipperary, have been appointed Lieutenants of the Tipperary Artillery, and not of the Tipperary fight Light Infantry, as erroneously stated.’

The Munster Express, or, Weekly Commercial & Agricultural Gazette, 6 May 1871]


Account of death of William Chadwick of Arravale in Cork Constitution - Friday 10 April 1874, with Charles and Edward present, as per







The following extract is from a book called ‘My Hennessy Family History and Memoir’ by Sister Lucy Hennessy SMG (iUniverse, 2018), and gives an account of the family. This seems to be largely derived from the lineage of the Chadwicks of Ballinard as given in ‘A Genealogical and Heraldic History of the Landed Gentry of Great Britain & Ireland, Volume 1’ by Bernard Burke (Harrison, 1879). Both accounts state that William only had two wives, aka Wilhelmina Seymour and Charlotte Bourchier.

[5] It was one of my great grandmothers who was the Chadwick.  Her name was Bridget and she was christened in Nenagh, Co. Tipperary, Ireland, on 28 Jun 1833.  Her parents were George Chadwick and Sara Quinn who were married on 12 Feb 1831 in Nenagh.  Bridget's brothers and sisters were - Anne chr.7 Dec
1831; Richard chr.12 Sep 1835; Thomas chr.14 Jul 1838; Eliza chr.28 May 1841 and George chr.20 Dec 1847.  (There is possibly another male child born around 1843.)

Bridget, an assisted immigrant, arrived in Sydney, Australia, aboard the ship "Matoaka" on 17 May 1855.  The immigration lists show her religion as Roman Catholic and that her father was still living in Nenagh, but her mother was deceased.  Listed on her marriage certificate she was shown working as a domestic servant and lived in Ryde (a suburb of Sydney).
Bridget married William Newton, a farmer and a widower.  The marriage took place on 9 Jan 1860 at 'Villa Maria', Hunters Hill, Sydney.  Bridget and William lived Berry Park/Morpeth (just near Maitland) New South Wales and had  4 children - (1) George William b.11 Nov 1860;  (2) Sarah Jane b. 2 Jul
1863; (3) Richard Henry b.12 May 1871; and (4) (my grandmother) Catherine Lucy b.1 Mar 1874.  Bridget died in Newcastle from a 'cerebral softening' on 4 Jul 1904.  Her husband, William, had predeceased her on 23 Jul 1881 from 'heart disease'.

Their daughter Catherine Lucy (my grandmother) married Ernest Septimus Brunker, an auctioneer, at Maitland on 20 May 1893.  They had 5 children all born in Maitland - (1) my father, Edgar Ernest b.25 Jul 1893; (2) Ellie Blanche b.10 Mar 1896; (3) Enid Florence b.9 Jul 1900; (4) Evelyn Sherbon b.6 Sep 1906; (5) Elaine Sylvia b. 9 Sep 1909.

Edgar Ernest married Frances Borgia Costello in Maitland on 26 Jan 1916 and they had 2 children both born in Maitland - (1) Edgar b.10 Oct 1920;  (2) Patricia b.15 Aug 1932.
I think the Nenagh Chadwicks moved a bit north in Ireland.  Must admit I have not gone into them in great detail.
I do not know the work you mentioned by Edward Marion Chadwick.  The old photocopy I have is one done by the Canadian branch with a few other pieces jotted down on it.  The list of Chadwicks I was referring to was what I had extracted from the Australian Convict Indents and Shipping Lists also from some of the Birth, Marriage and Death indexes.  I had sent a copy to the Chadwick Association in England for their information.  I did not follow through on any of the indexes as it was meant to be a starting point for anyone who may have 'misplaced' a relative around those early years.

My name is Brett Fitzpatrick
My Grandmother was Muriel Anna Rosalind Chadwick (maiden name).
She had a lot of the same information you have as a result of a family tree she had done many years ago. She passed away two years ago aged 100 and we have not been able to find her documents. My Grandmother married Thomas Peter Fitzpatrick here in Australia. Her sister had the ships log from the Chadwick that was a Captain which I can no longer track down unfortunately but I have not given up. My father also had photos of the Rev and other relatives. I remember as a very young boy my Grandmother being able to inherit a substantial land holding in Ireland but there was an issue on back taxes and the need to sail out to Ireland to sort it. At the time they did not have the money to do anything about it and nothing came of it. There is a lot of history that my Aunty Daughter of my Grand mother) could share with you I am sure so if you are interested I can get you her email.

[53] Wikipedia: Joseph Damer, (1630–1720), an officer in Oliver Cromwell's New Model Army was granted lands in Shronell in 1662.[2] There were concerted efforts made by the Damer family to introduce Protestant workers from the northern counties, and by 1766 there were eighty-two Protestant families in Shronell.[3] In 1837, the parish, (sometimes spelled Shronehill) in the barony of Clanwilliam, contained a total of 1006 inhabitants and encompassed the townlands of Ballinglanna, Ballycohy, Ballyconry, Barronstown (Ormond), Shronell Beg and Shronell More. It consisted of 2,747 statute acres (1,113 hectares), some of which was cultivated but mostly in pasture. 'Ballinard' was the residence of W. Chadwick.. Other notable residents were Clement Sadler, 'Damerville', Austin Cooper 'Chadwickand' and Rev. M. Clarkethe of the glebe house. The Protestant Parish was in the diocese of Cashel.

[57] 18 Jul 2002  "Cara Stewart"
Stumbled across your web site and discovered my husband's family on it.  His grandfather is Wilfrid La Rive Bourchier who is a descendent of Charlotte Chadwick and John Bourchier.
In case you're interested, we have a miniature portrait of Sara Aher's mother Suzanna Wilkinson and Sara's grandfather William Cumberland Wilkinson as well as a sister of Sara's.  Kate Aher died when she was about 14.  There is a very good possibility we have some small bits of Chadwick silver. Several years ago I was told by an elderly aunt that the  family crest on the silver was Chadwick.   I've checked the marks on the pieces and think these might date to the late 18th century which could mean they came into the family with Charlotte.  However, until more research has been done this is only speculation.
In case your're interested a book was published in the 19th about the Aher's and other branches. My husband, Simon Dalby, son of Nina Marion La Rive Bourchier, is now living in Ottawa, Canada.  Given the number of your ancestors who ended up in Ontario I am tempted to say that "all roads lead to Ontario".  (My family also arrived in Canada in the 1830s via Ontario.)

I was impressed with the amount of work that you've put into your family research.

8 Sep 2002:-

My husband family connects with the Chadwicks when Charlotte Chadwick marries John Bouchier in 1797.  Their eldest son, John, marries Sarah Aher (I have miniature portraits of her, her father, and her daughter Kate) and a handful of generations later my husband, Simon Dalby, comes along.  This particular Bourchier line seemed to suffer due to the consequences of WW1 so that despite a huge number of brothers and sisters only one of them produced children and these were girls. You might be interested to know that these Bourchiers are descended from the Bourchier regicide who signed King Charles 1 death warrant.  I'm still trying to figure out precisely how they ended up in Ireland but so far it doesn't seem to have anything to do with Cromwell or the need to flee. To the best of my knowledge I believe that Charlotte and John lived at Baggotstown in Co. Limerick.  The house/estate was confiscated by the Irish in 1905 so it is no longer owned by Bourchiers but the house is still standing.  It looks a bit tired but still seems to exude a degree of charm. My Stewarts came from Banff, Scotland and first arrived in Canada East in the 1830s.

Julie Bouchier Perry on September 19, 2009 from Orinda, California

I come from the Bourchier/Bouchier family from Kilcullane and Baggotstown in Limerick from my father, Henry Bouchier.  Earlier, they spelled it Bourchier, and I have a copy of my GGrandfather's Marriage Certificate from the Hall of Records in Dublin, wherein he signed it, Thomas Bourchier, his father signed it as Henry Bourchier, and his brother, as John Bourchier.  That was in 1862.  They left Ireland in a few years after my Grandfather, Henry Bouchier was born in 1864 for Toronto, Canada.  Eventually they moved to Chicago and then to Los Angeles, where my father, Henry Bouchier was born in 1906.

I see where some of my relatives married into the families which you discussed.  I have a family letter written in 1948, suggesting that our family came from the Beningbrough Bourchiers of York, or the Bourchiers, Earls of Bath.  I have reserached this, knowing that the Earls of Bath came earlier, and that Sir George Bourchier, of that group, was given much acreage in what is now Limerick, and that part of that grant from QEI, was given to our relatives by Oliver Cromwell, whose Aunt had married into the Barrington family.  He had married an Elizabeth Bourchier, who does seem to be also connected to the Beningbrough family in some fashion.  They all came from John Bourchier, Lord Berners, originally, who came from the marriage of Anne Plantagenet and William Bourchier in the 1400s.

If you may have any information about just who in the Beningbrough group was the father of John Bourchier, 1664, of Baggotstown, my relative, I would so appreciate knowing it.  I think it was the son of the regicide, Sir John Bourchier of Beningbrough, or a very close relation of his.

I enclosed below part of your website and am 100% certain that my connection to the Chadwicks is via the "unnamed" daughter of Elizabeth Chadwick Hammersly.
Margaret Chadwick and her husband, Mr. Hammersly, are both mentioned in the will of Pierce Barron of Cullen, who was definitely buried in the Cullen Church graveyard (1724). Elizabeth's mother was Elizabeth Gabbett and her father was William Chadwick. At any rate, I am certain via Pierce Barron's will in Dublin that this daughter's name was Margaret Chadwick Barron, wife of Pierce Barron of Cullen. I am 'not' certain about exactly how I connect to this clan because there are two possibilities for the father of my great-great-great grandfather, Maurice Barron Sr. of Bohercrowe. Maurice's father may have been Edward Barron "the Soldier" of Tipperary Town, but it also could have been Daniel Barron of Clerkstown near Lattin. I don't want to get into my own intuition too much, but I'd say there are far better odds that Edward Barron the 20 year Veteran of the British Army was the father of Maurice Sr. I'd say the facts also corroborate this intuition (the names all fit for this descent) because the records and mentions about Maurice Sr.'s farm in Bohercrowe in the 1820's to 1830's were all kept in the now defunct Protestant Church of Cullen--NOT in Tipperary Town! Keeping it short concerning intuition, all the FIRST names in what is known from parish registers about my family in Bohercrowe over 4 generations says that my family descended from Pierce Barron and Margaret Chadwick of Cullen, which means that Edward Barron "the Soldier" was the father of Maurice Sr.--not this Daniel Barron fellow of Clerkstown. My genealogist deeply investigated this Daniel Barron fellow and tried to sell me a bill of goods that Daniel's father was James Barron, the illegitimate son of Patrick Barron of Tipperary Town, Emly and probably also from Cullen and the son of Edward Barron (mentioned 1667). This genealogist also found interesting legal records on another Barron family of Stradbally in Co. Waterford, which seems to clearly connect to Lattin in Tipperary and this is next door to Clerkstown. Therefore, I think this genealogist's conclusions were wrong in even saying that Daniel Barron of Clerkstown was the son of James Barron because it seems far more likely Daniel's father was from the Stradbally Barrons, who also held lands in Lattin. Therefore, the father of Daniel was probably born and raised in Co. Waterford, not in Tipperary Town.

At any rate, sorry the above is so long, but this stuff is certainly most complex! Nonetheless, I'm fairly certain that your wife is my cousin. Unfortunately, at some time the British Government ordered that all Church of Ireland records be sent for safekeeping to the National Archives in Dublin and there was an explosion during the rebellions around 1920. Therefore, the parish registers definitively naming the father of Maurice Sr. are now gone and the only way I will be able to put this puzzle together is if I can find corroborating evidence via the graveyards in the Barony of Clanwilliam in Tipperary. Nevertheless, I still think all the facts point to Edward "the Soldier" being Maurice Sr.'s father because Maurice Sr. also had younger brothers named William and Patrick (definite) and British Army records confirm that a John Barron joined the British Army in 1808 and served for 8 years and 1808 was the year that Maurice Sr.'s eldest son was born, John Barron. It seems that John "the Soldier" was probably the youngest brother of Maurice Sr. (born about 1772). There were also two known sons of Margaret Chadwick Barron: 1. Edward (no issue) and 2. John. This is why I'm fairly certain that Maurice Sr.'s father was Edward, Edward's father was John, John's father was Pierce, (Mother Margaret Chadwick) Pierce's father was Patrick Barron of Tipperary Town & Emly and Patrick's father was Edward Barron of Cullen. Edward was mentioned in the Hearth Money Rolls of 1667.

I was looking over the two reports that Dublin genealogist sent me and he writes in a confusing manner at times. Therefore, I had to add that due to those reports I had mistakenly thought that Margaret's maiden name was Chadwick, whereas I can now clearly state that is/was wrong. Margaret's maiden name was Margaret
Hammersly, while her mother's maiden name was Elizabeth Chadwick. A minor difference, but I think an important one. Sorry I confused the facts, but it took a re-reading of the report, then also re-reading Pierce Barron's will whereby he named Richard Chadwick as being some sort of surety for Margaret Hammersly (his niece?). Pierce does 'not' specify Margaret's maiden name at all, but it was clearly Hammersly. The will also does not specify the first name of Mr. Hammersly, who was his father-in-law.

I think we may be related. I hired a genealogist in Dublin to help me find my direct ancestors in Ireland and it seems my great-grandfather, Patrick Barron, was originally from Bohercrowe near Tipperary Town. Patrick left Tipperary at some time with his mother and 3 younger siblings and perhaps even their father, John
Barron, around 1867. NYC records steadfastly reported that John and family left Ireland in 1863, but I think that is wrong because my John Barron was definitely living in Bohercrowe in 1866 (the genealogist found proof). It seems that John was probably involved in the Fenian Rebellion of 1867 in Tipperary and may have
needed to leave Ireland immediately in order to evade arrest. I know that Rebellion failed and later on the Fenians freed the leaders of that rebellion in Manchester, Engand and accidentally killed a policeman in the process of freeing Colonel Kelly and Captain Deasy. These Fenian leaders were the forerunners of the
movement eventually leading to the Irish Republic in 1922. I don't know how you feel about that movement, or any of that political stuff, but I'm neutral myself--I'm American.
At any rate, I just looked at your website under the Chadwicks and it says William Chadwick was from Gurthakilleen. Where is Gurthakilleen? This William Chadwick may have been the brother of Margaret Chadwick. I know that Margaret Chadwick married Pierce Barron of Cullen in 1702. This means that William Chadwick and Elizabeth Gabbett may have been the parents of Margaret Chadwick too. Do you know anything about these Chadwick families of Cullen? Are they related to you? I noticed you called them the Chadwicks of Ballinard and my genealogist in Dublin said my Chadwicks were from Ballinard too. Thank you.
PS: Do you know that there are two wealthy Chadwick Lawyers living in Shronell today? I'm hoping to meet them later this summer to ask them if they know anything about my Margaret Chadwick. I am not positive yet that Margaret Chadwick Barron was my great-grandmother 5 times removed, but I do know that my Maurice Barron Sr. was born around 1772 and was married to Bridget Power in 1807. I also know that Maurice Sr. was from Bohercrowe, (a few miles East of Ballinard & Cullen) but was also named 4 times in the Protestant Church of Ireland in Cullen. I underlined Protestant because Maurice Sr. and Bridget Power were married in the Catholic Church in Tipperary Town. Therefore, I suspect Margaret Chadwick Barron was Maurice Sr.'s paternal great-grandmother.

Thanks for the email! I'm just about to look at an email I just received today from a woman in England, who is an expert regarding the pre-Cromwellian history of my family. Of course, this is well before my family's move from Inistiogue in Co. Kilkenny before the invasion of Cromwell. The Dublin genealogist (and I agree with him) says he thinks that the patrilineal ancestors of my family in Bohercrowe, Tipperary Town and Cullen were from Inistiogue. There is a lot of compelling evidence to draw this conclusion, but not nearly enough for me to be certain that this is correct. At any rate, I wrote her a snail-mail last Friday, so let me look at it before I finish this email.

I just read the email from the woman in England; who knows a lot about the Barrons of Brownsford & Cloone in Inistiogue; and she sent me a long attachment (too long, can't read now) with it so I want to send a short email and also send you one, so this will have to be brief...a little shorter than War and Peace, but brief for me, LOL!! At any rate, I may have just hit paydirt with this woman because her maiden name seems to have been Barron and she's like me in being able to trace her roots back to her Catholic ancestors in the Inistiogue & Thomastown area with another Edward Barron like what looks to be my great-great-great-great grandfather, who was born in 1750 and served in the 32nd Foot (Duke of Cornwall) from 1771 to 1791. I find this interesting too because Edward served in England, Ireland (Cork City, Dungarven, Waterford & Dublin) and the defense of Gibraltar in 1784. In addition, my Maurice Sr. may have lived in Gibraltar at this time because there were a lot of wives and children living at Gibraltar with the soldiers in 1784. I had thought (a British Army historian got me the facts) that Edward and the 32nd Foot served in America along with Richard England of Inis/Ennis because another regiment of foot attached to the 32nd did serve in America along with Richard England et al. The other interesting thing about the text in this English woman's email was that she knows that her people are still farmers in Thomastown and other villages nearby and were Catholic. However, it seems nearly certain that you yourself are much closer kin (via Eliabeth Chadwick Hammersly) to me than this Ms. Barron because I'd say I am nearly 100% certain that this British soldier (Edward) was Maurice Sr.'s father and not this other Daniel Barron (only other Barron at the time in this part of Clanwilliam Barony). In addition, if Edward indeed was Maurice Sr.'s father, then I have a feeling I will be able to locate both burial places, get the inscriptions (I found the technique that will work and have seen the hundred or so probable headstones and one will be ours) and be able to prove that Edward was his father. I also suspect that Maurice Sr.'s wife will be the key to proving the rest of the descent back to Cullen as early as at least 1667. Maurice Sr.'s daughter-in-law from Monard/Moanmore, (many miles from Bohercrowe, but abutting the road to Cullen) Bridget Cosgrove, daughter of Timothy Cosgrove, told me that Edward must have been Maurice Sr.'s father and likewise Edward's daughter-in-law will probably unlock all the records to prove that Edward's father was John Barron of Cullen and his uncle was Edward Barron of Cullen, which will unequivocally prove that Pierce Barron of Cullen and Margaret Hammersly Barron were their parents and of course from Cullen. If all the above is true (very strong probability) then my family were Protestants from the time of Edward Barron of Cullen dating back to at least 1667. I find this new, definite information that Ms. Barron's family was always Catholic in Inistiogue most interesting because it seems nearly certain to me at this time that my family converted to the Church of Ireland just a few years after Cromwell's conquest of Ireland from 1641 to 1653 and my family remained that way up until what looked to be my great-great-great grandparents, Maurice Sr. and his wife, Bridget Power Barron. By the way, I sent an concerned letter to that Dublin genealogist because he had a knack of constantly coming to bad conclusions, constantly making insinuations and insults about my ancestors (wrong ones I might add according to the locals in Tipperary town today that knew our descendents, the O'Neills, a short time ago, that male-line died out in the early 1900's) and not doing diligent research on my behalf, so now he refuses to continue doing research for me, which probably just saved me $600 and a lot of headaches and malarky masking itself as real research. I can finish the research myself at St. Mary's Church (Richard Cooper-Chadwick) and up at the various archives in Dublin and do a proper job. An example of this genealogist's insults against my family is assuming that James Power and his son Edmund Power of Tipperary Town could 'not' have been my ancestors because 1. they were Protestant and 2. they seemed to be quite wealthy. This man did not furnish any other information (only the short quips) on these Power families because I was paying him to search only for the Barrons way back to our probable roots in Co. Kilkenny. Simultaneously, this man tells me my Barron ancestors were Protestant and from Tipperary Town, Bohercrowe & Cullen and Mr. Ryan, the proprietor of TC Ryans in Tipp town actually 'knew' Mr. O'Neill a few years back (20 years back I gather). These sorts of conclusions make no sense because there is no reason to think that Bridget Power Barron's father was Catholic just because her mother was Catholic and she was married in a Catholic church in Tipp Town. In fact, in the late 1700's I know that it was common for Protestant men to marry Catholic women merely because of a shortage of eligible Protestant women to marry in Tipp town. The other thing is that I know there was an Edmund Power living on a farm in Bohercrowe at the same time that Bridget Power Barron and her husband Maurice were living in Bohercrowe and I suspect Edmund was Bridget's brother, their father was Edmund Power and their grandfather was James Power of Tipperary Town. It also would not surprise me in the least if my Maurice Sr. was actually baptized in the Protestant Church in Cullen around 1772 because there was no Protestant church in Tipp town back then and Cullen was the closest church to Edward the Soldier's farm in Bohercrowe. I also know that all the land records on Maurice Sr.'s farm in Bohercrowe were actually kept in that Protestant Cullen church until the UK Government ordered them sent to Dublin before the rebellion. Yes indeed I think James Power will be the key to connecting my Maurice Sr. to Edward of Cullen. Then, it is only a matter of finding out where Edward of Cullen came from before the arrival of Cromwell and I suspect it was either in Bansha with Walter Butler and his wife from Inistiogue, and/or also Brownsford in Inistiogue. Edmund's daughter, Joan, married Sir Richard Butler's, Baron of Knocktopher, son, Walter Butler. Walter was also the commander of the Fethard garrison of 250 men and surrendered to Cromwell. Walter, the Earl of Ormond and the Earl of Thomond (owner of lands in Bohercrowe, Cullen etc.) seem to be how Edward ended up farming in Cullen and Edward actually may have lived in Tipp town because it is known that Patrick Barron lived in Tipperary Town and farmed lands in Emly, Damerville etc. in league with Joseph Damer, the Chadwicks etc. Patrick Barron was also the name of my great grandfather and many other Patricks in our known clan, which is an unusual first name for any Geraldine, but not for the Barrons of Inistiogue! The reason for this unusual first name seems to be because in the early 1300's the Lord of Iverk's youngest brother was Lord of Ballygurrim, (now Ferrybank across the Suir River from Waterford City) Slieverue and Rathpatrick and their male-line descendents were the Barons of Brownsford & Cloone.

Finally, it looks like I will only need a little luck from Bohercrowe (a John Barron lives across the street from our old farm and is probably be descended from the Barrons of Cullen in the mid-1800's) on sorting out which headstone was for Maurice Sr., Bridget Power B., James Power, Edmund Power and finally Edward Barron the Soldier. After that a few days of serious study of the Brownsford Barron and the landlords for properties in Cullen (Milltown, Rathduff etc. owned by Barron cousins--3rd cousins--in the mid 1800's) from say 1600 to 1640 (I know the owners in 1640) should turn up some clues on where Edward Barron of Cullen came from before 1667. Again, I say I already know the answers are in Bansha and Inisitiogue and perhaps also somewhere in Connaght where I know sometime between 1649 and 1653 up to 1660 Edmund Barron of Brownsford and Cloone spent some years in exile, but did his sons, grandsons etc. go with them? I say Edward of Cullen was probably given to his aunt Joan of Bansha for upbringing from 1649 to 1660, when his uncle Walter got him the leases in Cullen and perhaps a house in Tipperary town too.

I am sending two small fees to Tipperary Excel and the Gloucestershire Museum because I was studying my genealogist's two reports and think I have finally found the key to solving exactly how my family arrived in Cullen by 1667 and exactly how we got to Tipperary Town and Bohercrowe from Cullen. It seems the key to solving the puzzle lies in my great-great-great grandmother, Bridget Power Barron (b. 1774, d. 1864). Bridget's great aunt was probably Grace Power Emmet, who probably lived in Tipperary town (those genealogists are vague about other families allied to the family they are searching). Grace Power probably married a younger brother of Dr. Robert Emmet, Sr. of Cork City and Dublin. It seems to me that the Emmet family could have been from Scotland (or England--one son went to school in Edinburgh) and according to published reports they came to Tipperary Town back in 1642, which is really before Cromwell had true power in Ireland and England--even though the rebellions and invasion started in 1641.

At any rate, I am searching for the wife and children of Edmond Power, Jr. of Bohercrowe, who lived next to our family farm about a 10 minute walk outside of Tipperary Town and was probably a brother of Bridget Power Barron from Bohercrowe. My genealogist said that Edmond Power Sr. (mentioned in two deeds from 1811 and 1812 and his younger brother's will dated in 1804 and probated in 1811) was the eldest brother of Captain William Middleton Power of the 28th Foot from Gloucester and the other brother (will in 1804) was John Power, Jr., and their parents were John Power Sr. and Mary Middleton. Edmond Power Sr. was from Tipperary Town and it seems to me that his younger brother must have been a contemporary of my Edward Barron of the 32nd Foot for the Duke of Cornwall, who was born in Tipperary town (1750) and served from 1771 to 1791. My genealogist said these Powers did 'not' seem like my Powers because they were rich and Protestant, but I think he made that conclusion simply because my Bridget Power was married at Tipperary Parish (Catholic) in 1808 and was probably baptized a Catholic. However, he seems to forget that 1. there were a shortage of Protestant eligible women to marry in this area during this time and 2. it seems likely that these Powers and Barrons were allied by blood and business ties to the Emet family ever since 1642 and during this time frame (1770 to 1810) there was the rebellion in Dublin of 1798 and 1803 and that both of these rebellions were led by Robert Emmet Jr. and Thomas Addis Emmet, whose family ties were both in Tipperary Town! Therefore, even though it looks like the Emmet, Power and Barron families of this area were all Protestant from the 1640's up to 1798, it seems likely that all 3 families were re-thinking their political and religious ties during these tumultuous days of 1798 to 1803! In addition, this same genealogist also told me that my great-great grandfather (John Barron of Tipperary Town and Bohercrowe) probably had to flee Ireland in 1867 due to the failed Fenian Rebellion of 1867 in Tipperary Town! John Barron fled to NYC in 1867 along with the named leaders of the rebellion, Colonel Thomas Kelly of Tipperary Town and Captain Timothy Deasy of Cork, which was the exact same escape route of Thomas Addis Emmet in 1803!

The other thing is that the odds are that my Edward Barron of Cullen (ca: 1667) was probably the son of Redmond or Maurice Barron of Clonpet, (2 miles south of Tipp town) Roland Baron of Kilfeacle, (3 miles east of Tipp town) or William Barron of Rathkany near Peppardstown (6 miles east of Tipp town near Cashel).
William Barron died in 1680 and definitely had a son named Edward Barron. Therefore, I think I'm closing in on exactly which Barron family is mine in Tipperary Town and Cullen and exactly where these families originated in, but it looks like either an earlier named Redmond and Maurice Barron of Tipperary named in the Fiants of 1588, who lived near the border of Co. Kilkenny. Maurice's father was James FitzGerald, son and brother of two Barons of Burnchurch. The other possible origin is a Richard Baron of Clonmel, (a merchant) whose father was the Baron of Brownsford in Inistiogue. At any rate, I think all the above is traceable with definite records, but the links and clarifying records will probably be in legal records about the Power and Emmet families of Tipperary Town and also in St. Mary's graveyard, whose origin does 'not' begin with the building of St. Mary's church in 1831 (Richard Austin-Cooper Chadwick was a prominent member of this church) because I've seen the burial places of Dr. Christopher Emmet (d. 1743), his grandson, Christopher Temple Emmet the lawyer (eldest brother of Thomas Addis and Robert the patriots) and also Mr. McCarthy, who died in 1740 and all were buried almost 100 years before St. Mary's church was built! Dr. Christopher Emmet was definitely a prominent citizen in Tipperary Town because the Emmet family vault lies right next to the current St. Mary's church and the legal records all point to the Power and Barron vaults being within a few feet of the Emmet family vault and as I remember those inscriptions are weathered, but there's enough left of the old inscriptions that a cleaning and rubbing of the inscriptions on these vaults will tell the names of the family owners and with land deeds dating from 1717 mentioning a business alliance between another man named John Power and a William Barron, I think we have old alliances with both the Power and Emmet families of Tipperary Town, not to mention the Chadwicks of Ballinard between Cullen and Lattin! This is starting to make some sense and it seems that John Barron of Cullen was probably the son of Pierce Barron and Maggie Hammersly that moved to Tipperary Town and had a son named Edward Barron "the Soldier"! I hope you are doing well!

PS: I forgot to mention that my John Barron (b. 1808) alleged in all official records in NYC that he came to NYC from Ireland in 1863, not 1867, and it was not until this genealogist provided me proof via land records on our old family farm in Bohercrowe for John being the stated tenant living there in 1867! It seems to me that John, his wife and all his children maintained a false emigration date of 1863 for specific reasons, to confuse American authorities, who back then and today have definite--and friendly--political relations with the UK government. This also seems to connect my family to the Emmet family of Tipperary Town because that Thomas Addis Emmet certainly got himself into a load of trouble with the UK government in 1798 and also in 1803, but not as bad as his younger brother, Robert Jr., who was hanged for treason by the UK government in 1803.

[70] see Bill Jackson’s work on the Irish family:
Towards the end of the 18th century, yet others of the family may have played a part in producing linen on a large scale: certainly they were linked with it by marriage. We saw in the last chapter that in 1716 Alexander Bell’s daughter Elizabeth (b. c.1697) married the linen draper Thomas Greer, known to researchers of the extensive Greer archive in PRONI as ‘Thomas Greer ‘I’. Greeves tells us that Daniel Bell (b. c.1700), Elizabeth’s brother, was ‘witness to his br./law’s Will’; Frederick Greer, writing c.1908, confirms this.
Here is where genealogy can be as frustrating as angling: one catches minnows, but much larger fish may get away. In PRONI’s Greer archive of, inter alia, more than a thousand letters, no. 525 has a note penned on the reverse, initialled ‘TG’. The note says ‘Daniel Bell was my great-grandfather’s partner in the linen business at Tullylagan’. And Frederick Greer refers to Daniel as ‘junior partner’. So that it at first appeared to me that Daniel, a grandson of Archibald, had been partner to a Greer of the  chronologically arranged archive letters to have been specifically addressed to his son Thomas Greer ‘III’, no. 525 was clearly not written by the son. Rather, it seems certain that the note was written later, whether by Thomas Greer ‘III’, or possibly by Thomas Greer JP MP of Sea Park, Carrickfergus who in the 1880s took an interest in the history of his family.
By then Elizabeth Fry’s work was very widely known.
There had indeed been a Bell business partnership with Thomas ‘II’. All through the letters, the Greer family appear to have been connected with the Wakefields of London. Thomas II had a bleach green at New Hamborough, alias Tullylagan, near Dungannon, first mentioned in 1775. In 1776 it belonged to the firm of Wakefield, Pratt & Meirs. After the dissolution of that partnership, Thomas’s offer of £2,000 for ‘New Hambro’ was accepted. Later that year Messrs Wakefield & Bell entered into a partnership with him and they ran it as Greer,Wakefield and Bell until 1796 when Thomas proposed buying Wakefield & Co’s share. Not only did there seem to be a link with our Bells, but another correspondent with the firm was Joseph Wakefield – of Moyallon. Had the Wakefields and our Bells established the firm in London?

‘Mrs Gurney of Earlham’ proved indeed to have been born K/Catherine Bell, daughter of Daniel Bell, and he a son of a Daniel Bell. But when eventually a pedigree of ‘Bell of London’ came to light, again done by the resourceful Greeves, it showed that they were a separate family, originating near Cockermouth in Cumbria. The above-mentioned Thomas Greer of Sea Park hazarded that that family’s paterfamilias, a John Bell of Embleton and later of Hundith Hill near Cockermouth, who had been ‘convinced of Friends principles by Geo Fox in 1653’, was related to and possibly even a brother of our Archibald. There being no firm evidence for this, we must suspend judgment. Yet the involvement of Bells – Daniel Bells at that – and Wakefields on both sides of the Irish Sea seems more than coincidence. Would that we could ask Greeves and Thomas Greer of Sea Park just why they researched those ‘Bells of London’. It would have been nice for our family to bask in the reflected glory of a link with Elizabeth Fry! Perhaps DNA profiling of contemporary descendants of all concerned may yet prove one incontrovertibly.

On Saturday morning, after a short but painful illness, supported with manly fortitude, departed this life in the 50th year of his age, John Gurney, Esq. of Earlham-hall, near this city, one of the Society of Friends, and of the firrn of the Norwich, Yartmouth, Lynn, and other Banks. From an early period of his life, this gentleman distinguished himse!f by a close application to business and to the aquisition of general knowledge, and on all public occasions, when the welfare of his fellow-citizens and the prosperity of his country were the topics of debate, he ever shewed himwself a warm advocate for the rights of the people, and proved his ardent attachment to his native land. His natural urbanity of manners, and his munificent hospitahty, were rarely equalled, and not to be surpassed. ln the fulfillment of his various duties of a husband, a father, a brother, and a friend, his conduct was highly worthy imitation, and the recollection of his virtues will endear his memory to all who who had the pleasure cf his acquaintance. Eleven children (who long ago buried an amiable mother) must with greater poignancy of grief lament the death of such a father ! Great and  severe as it is  to them, and to other numerous  and afflicted relatives their Ioss, how much more severe will it prove to those many persons who were the constant objects of his benevolence! a bcnevolence which was proportioned to his ample means of bestowirg it, and which, in accordancc with the pure doctrine. of Christianity, was extended without any regard to sect or country!

[88] GURNEY, SAMUEL (1786-1856),. Bill discounter and philanthropist, second son of John Gurney, banker, Norwich, who died 28 Oct, 1809, by Catherine, daughter of John Bell, merchant, London, was born at Earlham Hall, near Norwich, 18 Oct; 1786, and educated at Wandsworth, Surrey, and at Hingham, Norfolk. His brothers, Joseph John and Daniel, and his sister, Elizabeth Fry, are noticed separately, At the age of fourteen Samuel was placed in the counting- house of his brother-in-law, Joseph Fry, tea merchant and banker, St. Mildred's Court, Poultry, London. On 7 April 1808 he married Elizabeth, daughter of James Sheppard of Ham House, Essex, a handsome residence that descended in 1812 to the young couple, and was their place of abode during nearly the whole of their married life. The wealth that came to Gurney from his father-in-law, as well as that bequeathed to him by his father, helped him to rapid progress as a partner in Richardson & Overend, with which firm he had become connected in 1807. Very soon after his entering this business it began to assume gigantic proportions, and it was for about forty years the greatest discounting house in the world, and the parent of all the other establishments in London and elsewhere. At first only discounting bills, it soon came to lending money on all sorts of securities. In the panic of 1825 the firm, which had then become Overend, Gurney, & Co. were able to lend money to many houses to tide over their difficulties; this brought them into fa­vour, Gurney became known as the bankers' banker, and many firms who had previously dealt with the Bank of England now com­menced depositing their surplus cash in his hands. In 1856 it was calculated that his house held deposits amounting to eight millions of money. Gurney took a part in the efforts of J. J. Gurney, Fowell Buxton, and Elizabeth Fry for the improvement of prison discipline and the reform of the criminal code. He refused to prosecute a man who had forged his name, knowing well that death was the punishment for such an offence. He also interested himself in the Niger expedition, and in March 1841 entertained Captain H. D. Trotter, Commander W. Allen, and a large number of the officers of the expedition at a farewell dinner at Upton. In 1849 he under­took a tour of Ireland, where he made con­siderable gifts to poor people still suffering from the effects of the famine. He became treasurer of the British and Foreign School Society in 1843, and held that post till his decease. He was a very liberal patron of the infant colony of Liberia, kept up a corre­spondence with President Roberts, and for his many gifts was rewarded by his name being given to a town of Gallenas in 1851. In 1853 he accompanied a deputation sent to Napo­leon III to express a desire for a long continu­ance of peace and amity between England and France. His wife died at Ham House, Essex, 14 Feb. 1855, and in the autumn of that year, his own health being much broken, he took up his residence at Nice. Getting worse in the spring of 1856, he hurried home­wards, desiring to end his days in his own country among his kindred. He reached Paris, but could go no further, and died in an hotel in that city on 5 dune 1856. He was buried in the Friends’ cemetery at Barking on 19 June, when an immense concourse of people attended the funeral. He left nine children and upwards of forty grandchildren, but his eldest son, John Gurney of Earlham Hall, did not long survive, dying 28 Sept. 1856. Gurney was the author of a pamphlet “To the Electors of South Essex” 1852, in which he recommended the election of Sir E. N. Buxton.
The great commercial establishment, which Gurney had brought to a position of unexampled wealth and influence, after passing into less competent hands, was reorganised as a joint-stock company in August 1865, and failed on 10 May 1866, when the liabilities amounted to eleven millions.

[90] GURNEY, JOSEPH JOHN (1788-1847),

Philanthropist and religious writer, born at Earlham Hall, near Norwich on 2 Aug. 1788, was the tenth child and third son of John Gurney, a member of a well-known Quaker family, and a successful banker in Norwich, who was descended from Joseph, younger brother of John Gurney (1689-1741) q.v.;

Joseph John was therefore a brother of Samuel Gurney [q. v.] and Daniel Gurney [q. v.] Of his sisters, Elizabeth, the third, became Mrs. Fry [q. v.], and Hannah became the wife of Sir Thomas Fowell Buxton [q.v]. The mother of Gurney died while he was an infant, so that his domestic training fell to a large ex­tent to his elder sisters, and especially to Mrs. Fry. Of a tall and manly figure, a handsome face, and a very affectionate dis­position, Gurney was a favourite both with young and old. In his boyhood he was sent to study at Oxford under a tutor, though being a Quaker he never became a member of the university. He was greatly and perma­nently attracted by classical study, and found that its discipline harmonised well with the discipline of self-control so characteristic of the Friends. His first literary effort was a contribution to the ‘Classical Journal’ in the form of a review of Sir William Drummond’s ‘Dissertations on Herculaneum.’ The learn­ing shown in the paper was remarkable,*and he was able to correct many of the author’s statements. Gurney also studied Hebrew. From an early period he had many serious thoughts. His Quaker views, at first rather lax, came to be held with great strength of conviction. Self-inspection became a ruling habit of his life; once a quarter, in what he called his ‘quarterly reviews’ and every night in ‘quaestiones nocturntae’ he examined the actions and spirit of each day.

In 1818 he felt himself called to be a minis­ter of the Society of Friends, and from that time he was much engaged in work appro­priate to his calling. In addition to such work, he was attracted strongly by philan­thropic, enterprises, and other, especially edu­cational, movements for the benefit of the community, In conjunction with Mrs. Fry, he took a great interest in prison reform, thoroughly sharing her views on that subject. He was intimately associated with Clarkson, Wilberforce, Buxton, and others in the cause of slave emancipation. In politics, he was a liberal, and an energetic and hearty supporter of free trade. In the Bible Society he took a very special interest, the day of the celebra­tion of the society at Norwich being always a festival day with him. He made many tours to the United States, partly for religious services in connection with the Society of Friends, and partly to promote such public objects as the abolition of slavery, the abo­lition of capital punishment, and the restraint of war. Ireland, Scotland, the United States, Holland, Belgium, Denmark, Hanover, Prus­sia, and other parts of Germany he visited in this way. In July 1837 he sailed for America. He extended his journey to Canada and the West India islands, and did not return till August 1840. At Washington he invited the officers of the government and the members of congress to a religious meeting on a Sunday morning. The speaker of the lower house granted him the use of Legislation Hall; the chaplain of the house surrendered his usual morning service, and the room was crowded by the president and members of congress, their ladies, and many other persons. At the close of a powerful address upon Christian duty he was warmly greeted by Henry Clay, John Quincy Adams, and many other distin­guished members.

Gurney’s labours through the press were numerous and considerable. In 1824 he pub­lished ‘Observations on the distinguishing Views and Practices of the Society of Friends’ intended chiefly for the younger members of the society. In the same year he published ‘A Letter to a Friend on the Authority of Christianity’ In 1825, under the title of  ‘Essays on the Evidences, Doctrines, and Practical Operation of Christianity’ he em­bodied the result of the meditation and re­search of many years. Southey wrote (4 Jan. 1826): ‘I have gone through your volume with wonder as well as satisfaction. . , .It would have been a surprising book for one who was bred to the profession of divinity, and pursued the study with ardour during a long life.’ In 1827, after a long residence and inquiry, he published ‘A Report on the State of Ireland, made to the Lord-Lieute­nant.’ In 1830 ‘Biblical Notes and Disserta­tions, chiefly on the Doctrine of the Deity of Christ.’ In reference to this work Dr. Tregelles remarked: ‘Thoroughly as the field of criticism has since changed, the value of that book remains.’ In 1832 ‘An Essay on the Moral Character of our Lord Jesus Christ.’ In the same year he published ‘Terms of Union’ and ‘A Sketch of the Portable Evi­dence of Christianity’ the result of a sug­gestion made to him by Dr. Chalmers. In 1834 his ‘Essays on the Habitual Exercise of Love to God’ appeared, and the hook was reissued at Philadelphia in 1840, and in a French (1839) and a German (1843) transla­tion, On his return from America in 1840 he published his ‘Winter in the West Indies’ in similar letters to Henry Clay of Kentucky. In 1843, anonymously at first, ‘The Papal and Hierarchical System compared with the Religion of the New Testament’ This was reissued with his name, under the title ‘Purseyism traced to its Root, in a View of the Papal and Hierarchical System compared with the Religion of the New Testament.’ Several other works were printed privately, including ‘Letters to Mrs Opie’ and an ‘Autobiography’. After his death was published ‘Chalmeriana, or Colloquies with Dr. Chal­mers’ (1853), and several little brochures selected from his works.

Gurney declined overtures made to him to enter parliament. He was conspicuous for the largeness of his gifts to philanthropic objects, his generosity being facilitated by simplicity and economy in the ordinary or­dering or his life. He was married three times: first in 1817 to Jane Birkbeck, who died in 1822 ; secondly, in 1827, to Mary Fowler, who died in 1886, and thirdly, in 1841, to Eliza P. Kirkbride, who survived him. He died, after a few days’ illness, on 4 Jan. 1847, in his fifty-ninth year.

[93] GURNEY, DANIEL (1791-1880), (DNB via Ancestry)
banker and antiquary, was born at Earlham Hall near Norwich, on 9 March 1791 He was youngest son of John Gurney (d. 1809) of Earlham, Norfolk, and brother of Mrs. Elizabeth Fry, the  philanthropist, and of Joseph John and Samuel Gurney, who are separately noticed. His mother, Catherine, daughter of Daniel Bell, died in 1792. He descended from the ancient family of Gurney or Gournay, a younger branch of which held certain manors in Norfolk, (temp. Henry II). Daniel was a direct descendant of this branch of the family, After completing his education, Gurney entered. the Gurnhey & Co., of which he was afterwards the head, and for more than sixty years a partner. He wrote several essays On banking, which, were printed for private circulation only. As the head of one of the first banks in the provinces, he had much influence, both socially and politically. His amiability, courtesy, and generosity greatly endeared him to his contemporaries. Gurney was mainly instrumentall in establishing the West Nor¬folk and Lynn Hospital.
One of Gurney’s favourite pursuits was archaeology, and he was a prominent fellow of the Society of Antiquaries. He took great interest in genealogy. In 1848 he printed in two volumes for private circulation an elaborate work entitled “The Record of the House of Gournay” to which he afterwards (1858) added a Supplement.  This book is highly valued for its varied antiquarian Information and research. Gurney, who was a conservative in politics, was a justice of the peace and deputy-lieutenant for the county of Norfolk, and filled the oifice of high sheriff in 1853. He married in 1822 the Lady Harriet Jernima Hay, daughter of William, fifteenth earl of Erroll, by whom he had a numerous issue.

Dear Antony Maitland,


An internet friend, Hugh Casement in Germany, sent me your website details regarding the fascinating account you've posted reg. Chadwick families, including Bell, Gurney, Fry and Wakefield.  Everything in it is interesting, thank you so much for sharing this.


I'd like to ask whether you ever came across any mention of the Wakefield brother, John Howard, who went to India for East India Company in the army ?  The relevant passage in your website is above (66).


   Priscilla, married to Edward Wakefield and had issue, one of whom was Edward Gibbon Wakefield, founder of the Colony of New Zealand;

   Katherine, married to John Gurney, of Earlham, County Norfolk, and was mother of Elizabeth Fry, the philanthropist also of Hannah, wife of Sir Thomas Powell Buxton, Baronet.

Actually, and it probably isn't terribly important with regard to your website, Priscilla Wakefield (nee Bell) and Edward Wakefield had children, one of whom was named Edward Wakefield again.  This Edward married Susannah Crash, and it was they who sired Edward Gibbon Wakefield & siblings, one of whom was John Howard Wakefield, my own  I'm only mentioning it for clarity's sake.  So, Priscilla Wakefield was the grandmother of Edward Gibbon Wakefield and of Arthur, of John Howard, and others.

    Priscilla's sister Katherine Gurney and she were very close.  I've borrowed from the NZ Turnbull Library the microfilms of copied diaries of Priscilla Wakefield, quite famous herself for work among deprived women in east end of London.

    I myself live in a tiny village in Australia, so most of my research is done via the internet and libraries, and the help of a very good friend in UK who has beavered in the India Office, London.

What I found absolutely fascinating was to read the account of the visit of the King of Prussia, with a Mr Bunsen present.  The Bunsens were in the diplomatic service for Prussia.

   Elizabeth Fry was a cousin to Edward Wakefield and his wife Susannah Crash.  The daughter of Elizabeth Fry, Katherine who looked after the house, would have been a second cousin to JHW, my

   You see, the daughter of John Howard Wakefield, born in India to him and an Indian aristocrat who took the name of Maria Suffolk on baptism, was called Lucy Catherine Wakefield. 

   Lucy Catherine Wakefield married Count Hugo Radolinski, Prussian, in 1863.  He later became Prince Radolin, working as Private Secretary to the Kaiser.  I have read somewhere that she married from a Gurney household in London, her father having died the year before in London (her mother in India in 1852).



I've always wondered why Lucy connected with a Prussian - your website does offer an explanation.   I would welcome hearing from you.

My own line of research at present concentrates on finding the background to John Howard's wife, who unusually took Suffolk as part of her name. Descendants of theirs Germany have a photocopy of a portrait, showing clearly Maria Suffolk Wakefield as a full name, and this is also given on her burial certificate (obtained from India Office in London).


It has been Hugh Casement who put me in touch with these relatives, who descend from Lucy Catherine (nee Wakefield) and Hugo Radolin.


You might also be interested to know that a son of :



    Rebecca, married to Abel Chapman (c).


given in your website was called Henry Chapman.  He became an Assistant Surgeon to the East India Company and, further, married in 1836 (in India) the sister of John Howard Wakefield above, one Priscilla Susannah Wakefield who had gone to India to teach.


Well, I do hope you don't mind my approaching you on this matter and very much look forward to hearing any ideas you may have regarding my "quest". 

With kind regards, Maria Suffolk


p.s. I took my's name by deed poll many years ago.

[102] Jonathan Sharpe wrote (May 2005):

    Dear Mr Maitland. I have been researching Edward Vaux d.1803, in relation to a painting, that our family inherited, which I believe to be of him. I have been puzzled by many internet references to him having been Ordained. I know his son William, son in law James Simkinson and grandson Edward Vaux were. He could just have been earlier in his life but I have seen several entries in London directories over the last three or four decades of the eighteenth century showing him in business but no reference to him as Reverent (family marriage announcements) but there is still quite a bit to find about him. If there has been an error which has been promulgated I would like to know. I notice that your site refers to Edward Vaux being in Holy Orders, as well as; his daughter Emma Vaux marrying James King, rather than Rev. James Simkinson. I include extracts from Boyd's Marriage index and a transcription of the probate copy of Edward Vaux's will (a longish one). ------------

   I am only to happy for you to include this on your site. I am still wondering about where the idea of holy orders comes from as it was Maria's Father. There is usually some seed for an idea. I know I have had leave off cross-examining an elderly relative over inconsistencies in facts as I was causing real distress. Edward obviously had dealings with Quakers but since I have found Christening references for all but one of his children I don't think he would a Quaker preacher. Edward's father might have been or indeed an Anglican clergyman either in the Uk or South Carolina. He is a mystery which I would dearly like To Solve. I realise also have used information from the Chadwick Source and since that side has not been a central interest I have not checked it out but can be pretty certain that Maria Vaux married Jonathan Bell.


[103] William Murray, 1st Earl of Mansfield, PC, SL (2 March 1705 – 20 March 1793) was a British barrister, politician and judge noted for his reform of English law. Born to Scottish nobility, he was educated in Perth, Scotland, before moving to London at the age of 13 to take up a place at Westminster School. He was accepted into Christ Church, Oxford, in May 1723, and graduated four years later. Returning to London from Oxford, he was called to the Bar by Lincoln's Inn on 23 November 1730, and quickly gained a reputation as an excellent barrister.

[106] Saltford Brass Mill was one of a series of mills working in brass in the Avon Valley during the eighteenth century. Many of these mills, as at Saltford, employed waterwheels to power processes used by the company. Abraham Darby started making brass at Baptist Mills on the Frome in Bristol (near the start of the M32) in 1702. Brassmaking was much later transferred to Keynsham's Avon Mill, because of its better water supply. River transport was used to deliver brass ingots and coal up to Saltford; Weston Mill, Bath and other mills of the company.


The earliest main process involved the shaping of brass sheet into hollow-ware vessels, such as pans, bowls, and vats. Large water-powered hammers were used originally, to beat the brass ingots into sheet, and then faster hammers shaped the sheet into hollow-ware. This beating process was known as 'battery', so Saltford Mill was known as a brass battery mill.


Rolling mills (pairs of heavy rolls working like an old fashioned mangle) were soon introduced by the company, which produced brass sheets more evenly than hammers. Saltford Mill also became a rolling mill but hammers continued to be used for the production of hollow-ware.


The brass was malleable enough to be worked cold, but rolling and hammering could continue only for a limited period as the brass would 'work-harden', causing cracking. To prevent this, partially worked brass was periodically softened by heating, or 'annealing' it.


When this work originally started, individual pieces were heated over charcoal. Soon the Bristol industry devised bulk annealing in large furnaces heated with local coal. The brass goods were protected from damaging coal fumes by an inner sealed arch, introducing a new type of large-scale `muffle' furnace. The remaining Saltford annealing furnace, one of four once working at the mill, is the best surviving example of this important local innovation. The only other examples are at Kelston Mills, where only the outer walls remain.


Skilled immigrant craftsmen came from traditional brass making areas of the Continent bringing their valuable expertise. The skills of these men partly account for the growing success of the industry throughout the eighteenth century. Many of their descendants stayed at the local mills and several of their families continue to live in the Avon Valley today, with names such as Buck, Crinks, Craymer, Fray, Frankham, Ollis, Racker and Steger.

[147] “In April 1816 Coleridge's friend and physician, Joseph Adams, put him in touch with a Highgate doctor named James Gillman with the intention of placing Coleridge in his full-time care and effect a cure to his addiction problems. Although Gillman initially had no intention of taking this stranger into his household, he was so charmed by the poet on their first meeting that he agreed to take him in and attempt a cure. Coleridge spent most of the rest of his life in the Gillman house with only brief periods away. James Gillman was ahead of his time as a physician of addiction and although he was never able to entirely stop Coleridge’s intake of opium, he managed to bring it under greater control for many years. It is surely to Gillman’s treatment and friendship that we owe much of Coleridge’s later prose works, particularly his Biographia Literaria, Lay Sermons, and Opus Maximum.
Coleridge virtually became a member of the Gillman family and even accompanied them on annual vacations. On a number of occasions when Coleridge was away from the Gillman household, he fell back into excessive opium use. Each time Gillman managed to step in and return Coleridge to his home and to controlled, less harmful opium dosages. The pharmacy where the poet obtained his prescribed supply (and sometimes, an illicit addition to it) still exists in the High Street, though moved a few dozen yards from the original premises. Gillman later became one of the great champions of Coleridge’s reputation and commonly defended his friend in polite society and in print with one of the earliest biographies of Coleridge. Coleridge’s reputation was somewhat restored during his years at Highgate and in his lucid periods he became a kind of elder-statesman of the literary establishment and was visited by many of the period’s most important writers and thinkers. Despite Gillman’s care, however, Coleridge was overcome with respiratory problems and enlargement of the heart. Coleridge died at the age of 61.” (From

[153] GURNEY, JOHN (1688-1741), Quaker, was the son of John Gurney (1655-1721), a merchant of Norwich, and a Friend, who had been imprisoned from 1683 to 1685 for re¬fusing the oath of allegiance, and who brought up his family strictly in his own faith. He married Elizabeth Swanton and had four sons. John, the eldest, was born in St, Gregory’s parish, Norwich, 16 July 1688, was educated at Norwich, and followed mercantile pursuits. Early in his life he became an active Quaker, and when twenty-two was accepted as a mi¬nister. He devoted himself chiefly to the discipline of the society. In 1719 he attended the yearly meeting in London to propose to the government a further modification in the form of legal affirmation for the relief of con¬scientious friends, which was granted in 1721. He appears to have travelled with Thomas Story, but his ministrations were chiefly con¬fined to the neighbourhood of Norwich. In 1720 he defended the Norwich wool trade be¬fore a committee of parliament from proposed encroachment with such success and ability that Sir Robert Walpole, his personal friend, offered him a government borough. He held, however, that as the law then stood a Quaker could not conscientiously sit in parliament. In 1733 he visited London, and preached be¬fore the Gracechurch Street meeting. He died, after a long and painful illness, on 23 Jan. 1741 (O.S.), aged 52, and was buried at Norwich. He married, 9 Aug. 1709, Eliza¬beth, daughter of Joseph Hadduck of Little Barningham; she died 4 Jan. 1757. His two sons, John and Henry, were the founders of Gurney’s bank; his descendants in the male line became extinct on the death of Bartlett Gurney of Cottishall in 1802; his brother Joseph was ancestor of the Gurneys of Kes¬wick. Story describes him as a man of fine natural parts and of considerable eloquence. He was particularly esteemed as an arbitrator in cases of dispute owing to his impartiality and acuteness. His only, writings are: 1. “A .Sermon preached at Gracechurch Meeting” 1733. 2. ‘Sermons preached by Thomas Story and John Gurney in the Meetings of the People called Quakers” 1785. The popularity gained by his defence of the wool trade caused his portrait to be engraved in 1720 in a broad- side; underneath the portrait are verses to the ‘Norwich Quaker’. It is reproduced in the ‘Record of the House of Gournay.’
