The Purcell family was Catholic and adhered to its religion with tenacity, bearing fines and suffering discrimination through the centuries. On the other hand, John and his brother Edward did take the oath, which allowed them certain legal rights denied the others. These rights had some bearing on who could inherit what and who taxed or not when it came to inheritance.
Because the Purcell family was a fractious lot some used their wills to express their frustrations with each other. As a result, we are able to piece together although not always very clearly some of the issues that pitted one against the other. From his will, we learn that John is particularly vexed by his sister in law Catherine Brooke Purcell, the widow of his brother Thomas Purcell. In particular, he believes that she is obliged to pay out certain monies by order of the courts, although his point is somewhat obscure:.
Baron Cummins and Sarjeant Darnall consented to by the said Catherine and by Mr Edward Webb of Grays Inn council for all the annuitants which said award is filed and proved by affidavits in the Kings Bench and may if necessary be confirmed in Chancery and if the said Catherine should withdraw herself or prove insolvent or even if she should not — sufficient proofs will be found amongst my writings to make Walter Stubbs of Borkbury Con Salop attorney at Law and William Ashwood of Madeley County Salop Gent […] lyable to such or far greater sums and it is my Request that as soon as money can be spared to do it my Executors will take admin and endeavour to recover all they can for my children from my said Brothers Widow ….
Instead Catherine has a bone or two to pick with her own Brooke family. The Purcell family and Catherine Brooke share a common ancestor both being descended from Robert Brooke d. John Purcell of Madeley in the County of Salop in his will, dated 25th February, , names his wife and all eight of his children and makes the following bequests:.
To his wife Catherine: One Hundred Pounds a year during her natural life according to a Rent charge I formerly made unto her and now in her hands. To son Thomas fifty pounds. To sons Philip and Edward twenty pounds a year each. To daughters Mary, Catherine, Winifred, and Anne twenty pounds each. He then writes:. As to my son John [who married Esther Banner] to whom I have already given what I am able I desire he may have fifty pounds if my estate will bear it. Whereas there is the sum of fifty pounds left as a legacy to my daughter Mary by her uncle Richard Giffard I desire the same fifty pounds may be paid to her as it conveniently can be raised And whereas my daughter Catherine has a legacy of Forty Pounds left by her aunt Dorothy and Ten Pounds by her aunt Elizabeth Purcell I desire the said sum be paid to her as soon as it conveniently can be raised.
Likewise, the aunts Dorothy and Elizabeth mentioned by John, Snr. Any difference should hereafter arise about the performance of my will betwixt my executors and Legatys or any person herein concerned. My will and meaning is that such difference be referred to the Arbitration and Award of Thomas Whitegrave of Madly in the County of Stafford aforesaid Gentleman. He appoints as his executors his wife Catherine and sons Philip and Edward. A codicil was added on 31st January, , which did not alter the provisions of the will. A native of Shropshire and a doctor of medicine of Montpelier of 29th May, , and was admitted a Licentiate of the College of Physicians 3rd April, His name disappears from the College lists in PURCELL, JOHN — physician was born in Shropshire about and in became a student of medicine in the university of Montpellier where he attended the lectures of Pierre Chirac image right then professor of medicine for whom he retained a great respect through life see Of Vapours p.
After taking the degrees of bachelor and licentiate he graduated MD on 29 May He practised in London and in published A Treatise of Vapours or Hysteric Fits of which a second edition appeared in His preface is the latest example of the type of apology for writing on medicine in the English tongue so common in books of the eighteenth century.
He shows much good sense pointing out that there are no grounds for the ancient belief that the movement of the uterus is related to the symptoms of hysteria and supports the statement of Sydenham that similar symptoms are observable in men. Their greater frequency in women he attributes to the comparative inactivity of female life.
He recommends crayfish broth and Tunbridge waters but also seeing plays, merry company, and airing in the parks. This work shows less observation than his former book but contains the description of an autopsy which he witnessed at Montpellier giving the earliest observation in any English book of the irritation produced by the exudation in peritonitis on the hands of the morbid anatomist.
On 3 April he was admitted a licentiate of the College of Physicians of London. He died on 19 Dec For instance at the Shropshire archives there is a:. And a monumental inscription of Thomas Purcell d. John Purcell appears below on a one page broadsheet dated in the last column as a licentiate of the Royal College of Physicians, where he is the only member whose address is shown as just Country.
By John Purcell, M. Printed and Sold by N. Cox, at the Bible without Temple Bar, The preface of A Treatise of Vapours contains an extended justification of his position as the following passage shows:. Those who are troubled with Vapours, generally perceive them approach in the following manner; first, they feel a Heaviness upon their Breast; a Grumbling in their Belly; they Belch up, and sometimes Vomit, Sower, Sharp, Insipid, or Bitter Humours: They have a Difficulty in breathing; and think they feel something that comes up into their throat, which is ready to choak them; they struggle; Cry out; make odd and inarticulate sounds, or mutterings; they perceive a swimming in their heads; a Dimness comes over their Eyes; they turn pale; are scarce able to stand; their Pulse is weak, they shut their Eyes; Fall down; and remain senseless for sometime; afterwards by little and little, their Pulse returns; their Face regains its natural colour; their Body grows hot as before; they Open their Eyes, Sigh, and by degrees come to themselves.
There are many who when these Accidents are over, come quietly to themselves by degrees; and in others, when the violent Cold is ended, a no less violent Heat succeeds; which casts them again into many of the former Accidents, as Palpitations of the Heart; Headaches; Giddiness; Difficulty in breathing; and into some new ones, as Flushing of the face; Raving; Convulsions; Foaming at the Mouth; Violent Beating of the Muscles and Arteries; and a Tingling Sensation in the Thighs, which were Paralytick during the Cold fit, nay sometimes the Palsy will continue in the Hot fit too.
In the Stomach and Guts; whereof the Grumbling of the one and the Heaviness and uneasiness of the other generally preceding the Paroxysm, are no small Proofs. On 22nd August, , John lent his name to the following reassuring public notice: Bath, Aug Witness our Hands. John Purcell, M. He chose Purcell a papist who attended Lord North and Grey for a fever. This needs clarification. He died in the same year. The door case at No. Willis on Hysterick Affections, and to Dr. A few Days since died Dr.
Here we detail some of the legacies that John left. Esther, his wife, having died nine years earlier is, of course, not mentioned. As a result, he is free to take:. John believed that since he had taken the oath his beneficiaries were entitled to receive their annuities without additional fines that Catholics might otherwise have been liable to. And, as often happened, in order to ensure that the beneficiaries of his will did not question or challenge one another or argue among themselves, he suggests that those fines could be re-imposed on any one among them who would argue or question:.
English Catholics often sent their children abroad to receive a proper Catholic education. And, in the case of the Purcell family, some were sent to Lisbon in Portugal to attend the English College. In the Historical Account of Lisbon College is a list of students who attended the school, including:. Salop, Esq. Also a deed dated 30th December, , held at the Birmingham Archives shows: Edward Revell, of Shifnal, Shropshire, in pursuance of his right to nominate students to the English Catholic Colleges at Douai and Lisbon, devises power of nomination after his decease to John Talbot, of Longford, Shropshire, and Thomas Giffard, of Chillington, Staffordshire; signed and sealed and witnessed by John Purcell and Will Turner.

The pedigree was made by his brother Richard who appears on the page below married to Elizabeth Chetwynd, etc. John, Snr. Despite having had four sons all of whom reached adulthood, no further records have yet been located that would throw light on their lives.
Only the daughter, Maria Teresa, has left a trace of her existence. Peter, Westminster … indicates:. Thomas and Maria Teresa Purcell Cotton had two children. A son Thomas was born on 15th March, , and baptised on 3rd April, , at St. Dunstan in the East. We know little of Maria Teresa Purcell Cotton. At the National Archives she appears alongside her brothers and her husband in a legal case involving land at Madeley:. This case may have had to do with the claim of an outstanding mortgage on the estates of John Purcell, Snr.
Apart from the above records, and a few others not noted, no other documents relating to Thomas and Maria Teresa Purcell Cotton have been found. In The Cumberland Letters there are two letters by and some references to a young man called Thomas Cotton. He was thus the third cousin once removed of Elizabeth Balchen Cumberland.

Thomas Cotton George Cumberland, Jnr. Clementina Black comments that:. It is probably safe to assume that, while serving with his regiment in India, Thomas was killed in battle. George, helpful as usual, had been looking after some property in Westminster for the benefit of his mother [Maria Teresa Purcell Cotton] and sister [Elizabeth]. James Cropp was born in Holland and emigrated to England. Cropp may be a short form of Croppenburgh. James and Abigail had at least three children of whom two survived, Abraham and Elizabeth.
The burial of a daughter, Abigail, at St. Margaret Pattens took place on 22nd March, Margaret Pattens James died in December, , and on the 9th of that month he was buried in the Dutch Church at St. Augustin Fryars, in accordance with his wishes expressed in his will. The armorial shown here is from the floor of the church beneath which James is buried. The inscription is only partially visible as the floor has been raised, covering the rest of the gravestone.
James wrote his will in In it he refers to himself as a merchant living at Richmond. He bequeaths to his wife Abigail the sum of two thousand pounds as well as his house at Richmond. He makes various bequests to his son Abraham and his grandchildren James who was his godson , Richard, and Sarah. He also names his daughter Elizabeth who is the wife of Abraham Henckell, a Dutch merchant living in London, as well as their six children: James also his godson , Abraham, Tilman, Isaac, Elizabeth, and Susannah. James leaves bequests to the Dutch Church at St. Laurence, Pountney Lane at Thames Street.

The Cropp arms are on the left side of the shield with the bird, while the Banner arms are on the right with the fleur de lis. The plate may have been painted to commemorate the Banner-Cropp marriage.
There are a number of references to Abraham Cropp in the newspapers of the age. Abraham is listed as a lottery commissioner below in the left hand column about half way down. Blunt regarded this lottery as … his masterpiece, and as ushering in a new era of finance not only in England, but also in Western Europe. See Carswell , p. Portraits of the king and queen hang against the gothic windows above. This is a latter lottery drawing circa but captures the sort of scene that Abraham Crop may well have partaken in as a lottery commissioner.
Thomas Brearey upon Mr. Fifty years later George Cumberland, Jnr. Not so fortunate was his cousin Henry Man who remained tethered to his secretarial desk at the South Sea House until his early death aged 51 in The Royal Exchange Assurance Company. Abraham was also heavily involved in the South Sea Company although he was not a director. For instance, a meeting of the shareholders and officers of the company was held on 8th September, , and was reported on two days later by The Weekly Journal.
Thursday there was a General Court of the South Sea Company held at Merchant Taylors Hall, where the Sub Governor acquainted them that the intended Subscription for the Proprietors was laid aside, it being judged more for the Interest of the Company so to be; and that the last Subscription that was taken in was for 1,, l.
Gumley, Mr. Deputy Skinner, Mr. Alexander Cleeve, Mr. Richard Turner, Mr. Abraham Cropp, and two others. Craggs, and Mr. Hungerford, moved for the Thanks of the General Court to be given to the Directors, which was immediately complied with, and then the Lord Orkney moved to adjourn. This meeting was significant in the annals of the South Sea Company as it was the last meeting of the shareholders before the bubble burst.
The purpose of the meeting was to cover up the cracks that were fast appearing and to try to convince investors that all was well with the company and their money. A General Court of Proprietors of the South Sea Company which now had to be held was organized with the utmost care to preserve an impression of continued confidence. Although the proceedings were not due to begin till midday, the hall was filled at nine in the morning of 8 September with a reliable crowd, so that hostile groups arriving later could not get in.
Apart from endorsing the proposed dividend for the next ten years, the main business was a vote of confidence in the directors, which was proposed by Postmaster-General Craggs and seconded in a long speech by the MP John Hungerford, the promoter of the Bubble Act, who assured the meeting that in all his experience he had never known such wonderful results to be produced in so short a time. The universal wealth flowing from the original scheme, he asserted, had washed away all party differences [Whig —v- Tory], and the country was at peace with itself for the first time in a generation.
At this point an interruption by some August annuitants was howled down and a motion that they should be allowed to withdraw from their disastrous bargain defeated. The concluding speech was made by the Duke of Portland, who said he could not understand what reason anyone had to be dissatisfied. On 11th June, , Abraham, as an officer of the Company of Copper Mines in the Principality of Wales, was responsible for issuing stock in the company.
In , Abraham was chosen, along with seven other gentlemen, to audit the accounts of St. This is the last appearance that Abraham makes in the newspapers. Abraham Cropp wrote his will on 10th February, , in which he refers to himself as a merchant of Fenchurch Street residing in the parish of St. Gabriel, Fenchurch. He appoints his wife Susannah as the sole executrix of his will. He first states that he wishes to be privately buried at the Dutch Church of St.
The first three pages of his twelve-page will are taken up with describing how his marriage settlement had been disposed of over the years. Abraham names his wife, Susannah and his three children James, Richard, and Sarah, who together receive the bulk of his estate and who are bequeathed handsome amounts of cash as well as income derived from annuities in stocks as well as rents received from various properties.

The fortunes inherited by Sarah Cropp Long and her brother Richard Cropp came in large part from the various properties owned by their father Abraham and grandfather James. Below are shown some of the signatures of the parties on indentures dated A later indenture dated 8th November, , records an agreement between Susannah Banner Cropp and John Man whereby John agrees to lease from Susannah for a thirty year period two newly built brick houses at the north end of Tower Hill in the parish of St.

A third son, John, was born on 2nd February, , and baptised at St. John died shortly after and was buried in St. Margaret Pattens on 8th March, John Crop was Buryed in the Church Feb 8 There is a clerical error here because if John had been buried on 8th February as indicated on the record he would have been buried before he had been baptised. We therefore assume March was the intended month of his burial. A fourth son named after the above John was born on 18th April, , and baptised on 1st May at St. This John died in March, , but the parish register at St.
Margaret Pattens mistakenly records his burial as 18th March, , because the person making the entry forgot to change the year from to as the record below shows.

As no wife or child is mentioned we can assume that he had neither. James appears to have spent most of his adult life as a boarder in Great Ormond Street in the care of a man called Abraham Samuel de Bossens and his wife Elizabeth. He expresses much gratitude for their kindness in looking after him and he bequeaths them quite large sums of money, as well as his: … post-chariot and all of my plate China furniture in general my wearing apparel and linen of all sorts whatsoever belonging to me ….

The painting below by Arthur Devis shows Richard offering his wife Mary a game bird, probably shot by the gun propped up against the fence behind him. The dog seems more interested in the offering than Mary who leans slightly away while Susannah stands apart looking at the viewer uninvolved with what is happening. She holds her dress with her right hand as if she is about to walk.
The house beyond is Westoe Lodge which was demolished in the middle of the nineteenth century.

On 22nd April, , just before her twenty-eighth birthday, Susannah committed suicide and her death was briefly noted in the papers: Yesterday died at Richmond, Miss Crop. Susannah was buried on 30th April, , at St. Susanah Crop was buried in the church April 30 Black speculates that Susannah:. That the Cumberland brothers did not correspond about this event is surprising and it may have been Ms. Further research should solve this puzzle. The Cumberland brothers were no strangers to family members killing themselves. A view of Richmond Hill looking west. The Lass of Richmond Hill is a narrative founded on facts well known in the neighbourhood of Richmond and Sheen.
The story is simply as follows. A young lady [Susannah Cropp], equally accomplished in mind and body, the daughter of a merchant of immense wealth [Richard Cropp], resident on Richmond Hill, had consented to receive the addresses of a young officer, of exemplary character, and respectable parents, but Poor. He belonged to a regiment of cavalry then quartered at Richmond; but his offers were rejected by her father on account of that Poverty.
Apprehensions of a clandestine marriage being entertained, the officer was forbidden the house, and the young lady was strictly confined within its walls. The unfortunate young man afterwards served in America, and was shot at the head of his company. When it was first published, the poem was greeted by Lord Byron with the following cutting epigram:. The petrifactions of a plodding brain, That, ere they reach the top, fall lumbering back again. The Rev. Thomas Maurice … must have confined his dullness to his poems Richmond Hill , etc. He was assistant keeper of MSS.
His family was ruined by the South Sea bubble. This last point is interesting considering how the Cropp and related families were involved in some way or other with the South Sea Company. In his will Richard Cropp bequeaths to his wife Mary, for the use during her life, a pair of diamond earrings and a diamond bow that were given to his daughter Susannah by her grandmother Susannah Banner Cropp deceased which:.
I do desire my wife will alter into or wear in any shape or mode she pleases and after the decease of my said wife I give the choice of the said diamond earrings or the said diamond bow to my niece Mrs. George Chamberlaine and the other diamond not the choice of Mrs. Susannah had married the Reverend George Chamberlaine.

A sugar mill on the island of Jamaica at the time of the Long family. The History of Parliament has this to say about Charles:.
Succeeding as an infant to the largest property in Jamaica, Charles Long bought an estate in Suffolk [Hurts Hall], not far from Dunwich, for which he was returned in , voting with the Government. In he and a number of other persons obtained a patent granting them all gold and silver mines in Jamaica for 31 years. Defeated, he died on 8th May, In Beeston Long formed a partnership with Roger Drake, who would later become his brother-in-law and their place of business was in Leadenhall Street and their firm was, Long, Drake and Co.
Letters from Jamaica dated 20th Feb. Beeston was also a governor of the Royal Exchange Assurance Company. I do hereby promise to pay the Reward of Fifty Pounds for apprehending Charles Turner, as mentioned in this Advertisement. London, Feb. On being told that they had no particular pieces, and having received their cash, he rode off with his booty, but had not gone ten yards, when he called to the coachman to stop again, and returning said, he had forgot the servant, to whom he gave half a crown, then took his leave, wishing them a pleasant evening.
In a few minutes after the same highwayman stopped the coach of Mr. Knapp, Clerk of the Crown, and robbed him and Mrs. Knapp of what cash they had about them, telling Mr. Knapp that he hoped this would be the last time of their ever meeting in town or country. Not five hundred yards from the above place, he stopped Mr. Bond, the sugar-baker, in his coach and robbed him; a little time after, he stopped two gentlemen in a whisky. He requested they would be expeditious, as he had a great deal of business, and after having received their cash, rode off toward Clapham.

According to Clementina Black: George was invited to stay and go fishing with the facetious Mr. Dillon, but reflecting, perhaps, that lively conversation is the last quality desirable in a fishing companion, returned to town with Mr. Who this cousin was and whether she acted on her threat to end her own life is not revealed in The Cumberland Letters.
The London West Indian community … varied greatly in the age and daring of its members. Seniority lay with the great planter-trader families. Some had lost ground; the great name of Beckford, once so potent in the City, was now borne by a son who had little interest in City matters, preferring to become the author of exotic works in literature and architecture. But the older Jamaican families still held their position; the house of Drake and Long was the oldest and most respected firm in the Jamaica trade.
My Dear E, I wrote you very lately, and should not resume the Pen again so soon but that I must inform you, that we have just lost our good old Uncle. I thought when I saw him last, that he promised fair to hold out to 80 having been always so temperate and regular and habituated to exercise. The loss is great to his friends, as well as to his family; the former benefited by his Counsels which were always sincere, and the joint result of good sense, and great experience and observation, corrected by a sound Judgement.
His family and connections derived a lustre from his irreproachable character, principles, worth and fortune. For my part I had long been used to reverence him with a filial affection, having from the age of twelve known no other Father; and indeed from the age I have mentioned, to that of twenty four I lived much with him, and was treated in the same parental affectionate manner, as if I had been his own son. When obliged to go to Jamaica, his kindness still followed me thither, and l owe to him his voluntary solicitation, the V. Admiralty Patent, which was an act of consideration and Friendship I can never think of but with the utmost Gratitude.
To Jamaica too his loss is not trivial. He was always a warm friend to the interest of the planters, and a faithful Advocate, upon every suitable occasion. Here too, his known Experience, Judgement, and Candour, were such, that he has been often advised with, and respectfully attended to, by some of the ablest Ministers in this Kingdom. It is such men only, we can wish, for the benefit of Society, would be immortal.
But he is gone pursuant to the order of nature, after a punctual execution of every duty in this life, as a Parent, Husband, Friend, Master, Trustee, Patriot and a good Christian, and has left us the valuable legacy of an example which, the nearer we can copy it in our own conduct and practice, the nearer we shall be to that degree of perfection, which it is in the power of humanity to attain; and beyond which, human frailty precludes us from aspiring in this state of Existence.
Martin Outwich in Threadneedle Street and all of whom survived to adulthood which for the age is quite surprising. Martin Outwich. Some of these children are occasionally mentioned in The Cumberland Letters and where they are note will be made of it. For instance, in a letter from George to his brother Richard dated 1st January, , he writes:. Sunday Mr.
B. H. J. Hughes
Sam and Richard Long came down with their Sister, to go to the Ball on Monday at the Talbot, where they had people of fashion, luckily I was obliged to go to Town and so escaped it. Below the announcement in The World on 25th December, Samuel 18th May, — 31st August, ; 2. Charles Maitland 16th August, — 6th October, ; and 3. Mary Turner 15th May, — 24th February, Instead, he settled in the country and provided himself with a seat in Parliament in Illchester. Unlike his brother Charles, who was already in the House, he voted with the Whigs.
In this he was probably influenced by his brother-in-law James Maitland, 8th Earl of Lauderdale. No speech is known, but from 30th May, , until the dissolution he steadily opposed the war against France, also voting for the repeal of the suspension of habeas corpus, 5th January, , and for an inquiry into the national finances, 10th March, The Treasury listed him as an opponent. He was left without a seat in and did not seek re-election.
On 7th June, , he and his brother Beeston were among the City merchants who condemned the naval mutiny at the Nore. He served as Sheriff of the County of Surrey in Jane Maitland Long, like her eldest brother, the 8th Earl, gained notoriety for her flashy dress and outrageous public conduct and was altogether considered a rather controversial figure.
The extreme fashionability of the portrait began with the choice of painter. Aged just twenty-four, Thomas Lawrence was already renowned for his glamorous presentation and dazzling brushwork. His painting of Lady Jane Long provides early indication of the romantic naturalism that would ultimately distinguish him and set the tone for Regency style. Seated in a landscape, she leans casually against a low wall or bench over which she has tossed a red mantel lined with white satin.
Her hair is bound loosely with a white ribbon that allows several long, curling locks to cascade over her face and neck. The sleeves which she has pushed up above the elbow provide a further indication of informality, while also allowing Lawrence to demonstrate his skill in differentiating the opaque white material worn close to her skin from the nearly transparent muslin of her overgown.
The high-waisted fitting of the sash and the loose, blouson effect of the bodice recall the drapery of Greek statuary, thereby reinforcing the neo-classical sensibility of her hairstyle. Lady Jane gave birth to a son in , and to another in On 8th April, , Col. Houston was appointed Lieutenant-Governor of Gibraltar. Jane accompanied him to his new post but died shortly after their arrival on 1st June, They married on 18th April, Saturday, 23rd April, She died on 11th December, in France. No issue. Lately, in France, the Hon.
Sidney Charlotte Anne Atherley. They married on 19th November, She died on 7th July, Emily Herbert. They married on 28th February, They had three children. She died 24th April, She died on 21st January, Stuart Erskine. The following is from the introduction:. In February , Eleanor Stanley sent in her resignation after having served her Sovereign just twenty-one years. She was then engaged to her cousin, Charles Maitland, afterwards Lord Lauderdale.
She has left an account of her farewell visit to the Queen. Maitland appears to have been broken off very soon after her resignation; on December 11th, , she married, as his fourth wife, Lieut. Henry Herbert, of Muckross Abbey, Killarney ; as they grew up she took them out in London, where she entertained a good deal, and where they married —the elder the Honourable Richard Dawson, third son of the first Earl of Dartrey, and the younger the Honourable Hugh Elliot, third son of the third Earl of Minto.
Lady Congleton, and where she died on January 21st , aged eighty-one. Edward Stanley, 13th Earl of Derby. Two of the daughters of the 13th Earl of Derby. Although married four times, Samuel Long, Jnr. One of their children, Mary Euphemia Long , married the Hon. March 26th. She married, on 23rd April, , George William Prescott. The marriage allegation dated 21st April, , is below:. Stephan Coleman Street:. Mary was the daughter of Jacob Elton, a merchant of Bristol, and the sister of Isaac Elton, one of the original partners of the Bristol Bank.
Sarah Long Prescott died at Seaford on 18th July, Thomas purchased the manor of Overton in Cheshire, and was High Sheriff in Thomas died unmarried and left the Estate and Manor of Overton to his brother George Prescott, for his life, and afterwards to George William Prescott, his nephew.
His father was a prominent merchant in Chester and was also a partner in several lead mining enterprises in Wales. During his time in Italy he formed links with a number of prominent English noblemen who lived or spent time in Rome. George Prescott continued in the Italian trade after his return to England, and in was a member of the committee of London merchants who appealed to the government about the increasing number of trading ships being captured.
In Parliament, he was known for his extensive first-hand knowledge of commerce and finance. He was regularly consulted on matters related to his areas of expertise, and spoke on business connected with international trade. Fox has recommended Mr. Prescott, merchant, at great expense. I will certainly attend at the Cockpit and the first day of the sessions, and your Grace may depend on my attendance on any future day when business of moment may be supposed to come on.
If I have not appeared at your levee it has not been through want of respect, but it is my opinion that the public and your Grace may be better served by a close attention to my commercial affairs and a regular conduct of them and I wish some of my brethren had followed this rule. You may rely, Sir, that without any pecuniary view to myself I shall most heartily concur to second in my sphere of life all measures the new ministry may adopt towards the attainment of such a desirable end.
After this Rockingham naturally classed him in November as an opponent. He voted with the Opposition on the nullum tempus bill , 17th February, Holding neither place nor contract, rich and independent, he obviously voted according to his convictions. There, Prescott built a new Georgian mansion, Theobalds Park, which became his family residence.
In he also purchased the nearby manor of Cheshunt. He does not seem to have stood at the general election of , but the following year he considered contesting Hertford, but did not stand. If I should have the Honour of meeting your Approbation, I promise you that no Consideration whatsoever shall make me swerve from my Loyalty to my King, nor from all legal Support and Defence of the Civil and Religious Rights of Mankind in general.
He was finally returned on petition for Milborne Port, in May In this Parliament his interventions in debate were on East Indian affairs. In he was defeated at Hertford. Below is a short summary of the early history of the banking firm that George Prescott established in with three other partners and is based on the archives website of The Royal Bank of Scotland.
He was buried five days later in a vault he had designed for himself, on the south side of the churchyard at Cheshunt. He was succeeded as senior partner in the bank by his son George William Prescott, who had originally joined the firm in And after yet still more mergers and takeovers it eventually became a part of The Royal Bank of Scotland. Today that family is best remembered for its historian George Grote who wrote the voluminous History of Greece. He brought a small amount of capital with him, and founded an agency business in Leadenhall Street, under the name of Kruger and Grote.
Finding that he prospered as a general merchant he, after a few years, entered into joint partnership with George Prescott, and spacious premises near the Royal Exchange were purchased, in which the Banking-house of Prescott, Grote, etc. Threadneedle St. Livery, the Secretary, we think it will be unnecessary for you to meet the purchaser or the subject.
We remain Dear Sir Y. Servant Prescott Grote a pencil note mentions George Prescott. Romney also painted a half-length portrait of Sir George William Prescott wearing a brown jacket with a white stock, although only a very poor image of this portrait above has so far been located.

And, according to notes left by Hubert Man:. The name of Willoughby is closely linked with the Prescott family although no marriage between the two families appears to have occurred. The advertisement below on the left shows both Prescott and Willoughby chairing a meeting. Juliana was named after her mother, who had died shortly after giving birth to her.
Juliana Willoughby aged four circa by George Romney. He was baptised on 11th March, , at St. Below are the marriage banns. She was the second dau. He is a widower aged 63, she is a spinster aged Sir George Beeston Prescott, Bart. He was born in , and succeeded to the baronetcy in His lady, daughter of the late Baron Moucheron, survives him. Sir Thomas Mills the father of Lady Prescott. Her mother was Catherine Creighton Crichton after whom she named her daughter.
Thomas Mills entered the army as an ensign in the 15th Foot on 26th April, , and was promoted lieutenant in the 47th Foot on 11th May, The date of his arrival in North America has not been determined. Although his origins are unknown, he was evidently well connected and the patronage of the influential Lord Mansfield. After several years in England he returned to Quebec in June with appointments as receiver general, member of the Council, and brigade major. Father and Son?
When Mills took up his duties, as receiver general on 10th July, , he revealed a vanity bordering on arrogance and an almost complete lack of integrity. According to Irving he had little understanding of the question he had been appointed to solve and claimed totally unrealistic prerogatives. The receiver general was responsible to the Treasury Board for the collection and expenditure of public funds. Indeed the governor and Council should merely decide what needed to be done; the receiver general would allot the contracts.
In the face of determined opposition by Irving, Mills quickly backed down. Mills returned to London in August and his influence in London was sufficient to obtain a knighthood in and a new commission as receiver general in Mills again cut a prominent social figure with his choice wines, fine fowling pieces, and the brown mare, Coquet, which he raced on the Plains of Abraham. Despite his attempts to mystify Governor Dorchester [Carleton] with figures suggesting the crown owed him money, he was suspended by the governor on 25th August.
He returned to England later that year where he displayed a remarkable capacity for self-deception claiming credit for things he had little to do with such as the passage of the Quebec Act. He was a friend of the actor David Garrick and was present at his funeral, and was also invited to the house of the Thrales. One notes that the Hon. Her father Andrew b. Mary Woolnoth.

There is nothing beyond to call for extract; though the cultivation of his talent may promise higher fruits to Mr. No further literary fruit appears to have been produced by William-Henry who died on 26th July, , at his home at Leatherhead in Surrey. Charlotte married Thomas Mayer Carvick and there are living descendants of this marriage.
Below, the census where Charlotte is shown as Emily H. Below the census showing Charlotte aged 60 years of age and her relation to the head of household as mother:. She was the daughter of Samuel Jay, barrister, M. Oriel, Oxon and of Elizabeth Maria Jane. She was educated privately, under tutors. She published at least eighteen books, several of them posthumously, between and including: The Apotheosis of Mr. She resided at Somborne, The Riviera, Sandgate.
Kettel s braine was like a hasty-pudding, ivhere there was memorie, judgement, and phancy all stirred together. He had all these faculties in great measure, but they were all just so jumbled together. A neighbour of mine Mr. La urence St. Low 2 told me he heard him preach once in St. Marie s Church, at Oxon. I chanced to read such a part of it, on such a subject, which haz made me to choose this text.
I know not whether this was the only time or no that he used this following way of conclusion : But now I see it is time for me to shutt up my booke, for I see the doctors men come-in wiping of their beardes from the ale-house. He could from the pulpit plainly see them, and twas their custome in sermon to go there, and about the end of sermon to returne to wayte on their masters.
He had two wives, if not three, but no child quaere. His second wife was a Villiers, or rather I thinke the widowe of. Villers, esq. The eldest, whom severall of good estate would gladly have wedded, he would needs dispose of himselfe, and he thought nobody so fitt a husband for this angelique creature as one Mr.
Bathurst, of the College, a second brother, and of about li. He seldome found Bathurst minding of his booke, but mending of his old doublet or breeches. He was very thrifty and penurious, and upon this reason he caried away this curious creature. About neer 70 yeares since, I suppose, one Mr. Isham elder brother to Sir Justinian Isham , a gentleman-commoner of this howse, dyed of the small pox. He was a very fine gentleman, and very well beloved by all the colledge, and several 1 of the fellowes would have preacht his funerall sermon, but Dr.
Kettle would not permitt it, but would doe it himselfe ; which the fellowes were sorry for, for they knew he would make a ridiculous piece of worke of it. But preach the Dr. When he came to the panegyrique, sayd he, He was the finest, swet b young gentleman ; it did doe my heart good to see him walke along the quadrangle. He observed that the howses that had the smallest beer had most drunkards, for it forced them to goe into the town to comfort their stomachs ; wherfore Dr.
Kettle alwayes had in his College excellent beer, not better to be had in Oxon ; so that we could not goe to any other place but for the worse, and we had the fewest drunkards of any howse in Oxford. Ralph Kettell 21 He was constantly at lectures and exercises in the hall to observe them, and brought along with him his hower-glasse ; and one time, being offended at the boyes. When he observed the scolars haire longer then ordinary especially if they were scholars of the howse , he would bring a paire of cizers in his muffe which he commonly wore , and woe be to them that sate on the outside of the table 3.
I remember he cutt Mr. Tonedi, Tonedi. Tondeo, tondes, tonedi? Now come we this d was his word , I say the foxe s tayle is a home : is this a true proposition or no? He dragg d with one i. Egerton Major-Generall Egerton s younger brother , a good witt and mimick. As they were reading of inscribing and circumscribing figures, sayd he, I will shew you how to inscribe a triangle in a quadrangle.
Bring a pig into the quadrangle, and I will sett the colledge dog at him, and he will take the pig by the eare ; then come I and take the dog by the tayle, and the hog by the tayle, and so there you have a triangle in a quadrangle ; quod eratfaciendum! He preach t every Sunday at his parsonage at Garsington about 5 miles off. He rode on his bay gelding, with his boy Ralph before him, with a leg of mutton commonly and some colledge bread.
He did not care for the countrey revells, because they tended to debauchery. Upon Trinity Sunday our festival day he would commonly preach at the Colledge, whither a number of the scholars of other howses would come, to laugh at him. In his prayer where he was of course to remember Sir Thomas Pope, our founder, and the lady Elizabeth his wife, deceasd , he would many times make a willfull mistake, and say, Sir Thomas Pope our Confounder b , but then presently recall himselfe.
He was a person of great charity. In his college, where he observed diligent boyes that he ghessed had but a slender exhibition from their friends, he would many times putt money in at their windowes ; that his right hand a Scored out, Aubrey apparently doubting whether it was, or was not, the right foot. Ralph Kettell 23 did not know what his left did. Howe, of Grendon, sent him a present of hippocris, and some fine cheese-cakes, by a plain countrey fellow, her servant.
The poor fellow stared on him, and wondered at such a rough reception of such a handsome present ; but he shortly made him amends with a good dinner and halfe-a-crowne. The parsonage of Garsington which belongs to the college is worth per annum, and this good old Doctor, when one of his parish b , that was an honest industrious man, happened by any accident to be in decay and lowe in the world, would let his parsonage to him for a yeare, two, or three, fourty pounds a yeare under value. In his younger yeares he had been chaplain to Thomas Bilson, bishop of Winton. In August, 1 , -the lord viscount Say and Scale came by order of the Parliament to visit the colleges, to see what of new Popery they could discover in the chapells.
In our chapell, on the backside of the skreen, had been two altars of painting well enough for those times, and the colours were admirably fresh and lively. That on the right hand as you enter the chapell was dedicated to St. Katharine, that on the left was of the taking our Saviour off from the crosse. My lord Say sawe that this was donne of old time, and Dr. Kettle told his lordship Truly, my Lord, we regard them no more then a dirty dish-clout ; so they remained untoucht, till Harris s time c , and then were coloured over with green.
The windowes of the chapell were good Gothique painting, in every columne a figure; e. Cuthbert, St. Leonard, St. I have forgott the rest. Tis pitty they should be lost. I have a note of all the scutcheons in glasse about the house. Twas pitty Dr. Bathurst tooke the old painted glasse out of the library. Anciently, in the chapell, was a little organ over the dore of the skreen. The pipes were, in my time, in the bursery. He Kettle sang a shrill high treble ; but there was one J.
Hoskyns 5 who had a higher, and would play the wag with the Dr. I have heard her play on it in the grove myselfe, which she did rarely ; for which Mr. Edmund Waller hath in his Poems for ever made her famous. One may say of her as Tacitus sayd of Agrippina, Cuncta alia illi adfuere, praeter animum honesturn.
She was most beautifull, most humble, charitable, etc. Ralph Kettell 25 could not subdue one thing. I remember one time this lady and fine Mris. Fenshawe t her great and t She was wont,. Fenshawe, saying, Madam, your husband 7 and father I bred up here, and I knew your grandfather ; I know you to be a gentlewoman, I will not say you are a whore ; but gett you gonne for a very woman.
The dissolutenesse of the times, as I have sayd, grieving the good old Doctor, his dayes were shortned, and dyed July anno Domini , and was buried at Garsington : quaere his epitaph. Seneca s scholar Nero found fault with his style, saying twas arena sine cake : now Dr. Kettle was wont to say that Seneca writes, as a boare does pisse, scilicet, by jirkes. I cannot forget a story that Robert Skinner, lord bishop of Oxford, haz told us : one Slymaker 8 , a fellow of this College long since, a fellow of great impudence, and little learning the fashion was in those dayes to goe, every Satterday night I thinke , to Joseph Barnes shop, the bookeseller opposite to the west end of St.
Mary s , where the newes was brought from London, etc. Sir Isaac Wake, who was a very witty man, was resolved he would putt a trick upon him, and understood that such a Sunday Slymaker was to preach at St. Mary s. So Sir Isaac, the Saterday before, reades a very formall lettre to some person of quality, that cardinal Baronius was turned Protestant, and was marching with an army of 40, men against the Pope. The auditors all stared and were amazed :. Abbot afterwards bishop of Sarurn a was then Vicecancellor, and when Slymaker came out of the pulpit, sends for him, and asked his name : Slymaker, sayd he ; No, sayd the Vice-cane.
Kettle, when he scolded at the idle young boies of his colledge, he used these names, viz. Henry Birket b told us tother day at his cosen Thomas Mariet s, scilicet that about or when he was of Trinity College, Dr. Kettle, preaching as he was wont to doe on Trinity Sunday, told em that they should keepe their bodies chast and holy : but, said he, you fellows of the College here eate good commons and drinke good double-beer.
How would the good old Dr. Tempora mutantur. By the College records it appears that Ralph Kettell, Hertfordshire, aged sixteen, was elected scholar of Trinity 16 June But he may have been in residence earlier. He was elected fellow May 30, ; and admitted third president Feb. He died in July, The inner seats for these were often part of the wainscotting, and in any case there would be no passage behind them.

He was raunger of Woodstocke parke, and I have heard my old cosen Whitney say would many times in his younger yeares walke at nights in the parke with his keepers.

His father found out a rich wife for him, whom he married something unwillingly. He was a great lover of pretty girles, to whom he was so liberall that he spent the greatest part of his estate. When he had found out a maried woman b that he liked and he had his emissaries, male and female, to looke out he would contrive such or such a good bargain, 20 or 30 li.
He lived from his wife a long time. If I am not mistaken shee was sometime distempered by his unkindnesse to her. King Charles I had complaint against him for his wenching. It happened that Henry was in Hyde-parke one time when his majestic was there, goeing to see a race. The king espied him, and sayd aloud, Let that ugly rascall be gonne out of the parke, that whore-master, or els I will not see the sport. So Henry went away patiently, sed manebat alia mente repostum. That sarcasm e raysed the whole countie of Berks against him c : he d was as far from a Puritane as light from darknesse.
Shortly after 6 , he was chosen knight of the shire of that county, nemine contradicente, and proved a deadly enemy to the king. He was a great and faithfull lover of his countrey, and never gott a farthing by the Parliament. Aubrey c The king. The preceding clause gules, each charged with 3 besants.

He was first a prisoner at the Tower ; then at Windsore removed from thence because he was an eie-sore to his majestic etc. During his imprisonment his wife relieved him out of her joincture, but she dyed. His stature was but midling ; his habit moderate ; his face not good.
Sir Edward Baynton was wont to say that his company was incomparable, but that he would be drunke too soon. His speeches in the house were not long, but wondrous poynant, pertinent, and witty. He was exceeding happy in apt instances. He alone haz sometimes turned the whole house.

Wales wrote a bookef called Martin Marprelate , on which there was this epigram : Martin the ape, the drunke, and the mad, The three Martins are whose workes we have had.
If a fourth Martin comes after Martins so evill, He can be no man, he must be a devill. He was a very handsome man, a gracefull speaker, facetious, and well-beloved. I thinke he dyed of a merry symposiaque. He was recorder but a moneth before his death a. These verses were written on his Bible : Ad has reliquias illustrissimi amicissimique Richardi Martini, Recordatoris Londinens. Tu liber aeternae complectens verba salutis, Pignus amicitiae moestitiaeque liber, Fac me Martini memorem dum vivo sepulti, Fac memorem mortis, fac memoremque Dei.

Quilibet si sit contentus Ut statutus stet conventus Sicut nos promisimus ; Signum Mitrae erit locus, Erit cibus, erit jocus, Optimatatissimus. Whosoever is contented That a number be convented Enough but not too many ; The Miter is the place decreed, For witty jests and cleanly feed, The betterest of any.

Puer fuit expers artis Et cum fabis et cum fartis Somersetizatus. Vir cum Scotis et cum Anglis Et cum scarfis et cum spanglis Est accommodatus. Si Londinum, Si Latinum, Amas, te amabit.

If any be desiderated He shal bee amerciated Forty-pence in issue.
But yet the number is not ri gh ted ; If Coriate 1 bee not invited, The jeast will want a tiller. For wittily on him, they say, As hammers on an anvil play, Each man his jeast may breake. When Coriate is fudled well, His tongue begins to talke pel-mel, He shameth nought to speake. A boy he was devoid of skill With white-pots and oaten-cakes at will Somersetizated.

Aubrey s Brief Lives Quisquis hunc ecavilat, Garretando squabberizat, Et pro hac injuria Disrespectus ambulabit, Cum bonis sociis non coenabit In urbe vel in curia. Hie in stolidum elatus, Ut mountebankus hie effatus, Haranguizans bene. Quisquis hie vult esse prudens, Adsit, nihil aliud studens, Quam potare plene. Quicquid agis, quicquid dicis, Jocundando cum amicis, Eris fortunatus. Hunc secundum rectum stampum, Qui non vivit rampum scrampum Nemo est beatus.
Rex religionem curat, Populus legianciam jurat, Gives foenerantur; Miles et mercator clamant, Puer i et puellae amant, Foeminae moechantur. Princeps nescit otiari, Cupiens materiam dari Propriae virtuti. Carolus, imago patris, Imitatur acta fratris, Praelucens juventuti. Cancellarius a juvat multos, Prudentes juvat, juvat stultos, Humillime supplicantes. Thesaurarius b juvat summos ; Sed quoniam non habet nummos, Invident mendicantes. Northamptonius , nunquam satis Literis et literatis Juvandis, delectatur.
Et Suffolcius d , severe Regis familiam coercere Quaerens, defatigatur. To a fool thus elevated, Mountebanke-like thus hee prated, Harringuizing rowndly. Whosoe will be counted prudent, Let him be no other student But to drinke profoundly. Whatsoever you speak or doe With your friends, in jocund row, It cannot be misdeemed. For he that lives not ramp and scramp, According to the swaggering stampe, Can never be esteemed. The king religion doth out-bear, The people doe allegiance sweare, Citizens usurize it.
The soldiers and the merchants feare, The boyes and girles do love their paire, And women cuculize it. Prince Henry cannot idly liven, Desiring matter to be given To prove his valour good. And Charles, the image of his father, Doth imitate his eldest brother, And leades the noble blood. The Treasurer b doth help the rich, And cannot satisfy the stitch Of mendicants disdayninge.
Northampton , seeking many wayes Learning and learned men to rayse, Is still negotiated. And Suffolke d , seeking, in good sorte, The king his household to supporte, Is still defatigated. Andrew Marvel 53 Proceres aedificant, Episcopi sanctificant, Clems coucionatur ; Generosi terras vendunt, Et, dum rustic! Unusquisque sic facessit, Cor nullius conquiescit, Nemo habet satis. Solus Coriatus sapit, Nihil perdit quicquid capit, Nee stultescit gratis. The noblemen do edifye, The bishops they do sanctifie, The cleargie preach and pray : And gentlemen their lands doe sell, And, while the clownes strive for the shell, The fish is lawyers prey.
Thus every man is busy still, Each one practising his skill, None hath enough of gayne. But Coriate liveth by his witts, He looseth nothinge that he getts, Nor playes the fool in vayne. Novi, Oxon. Andrew Marvel Andrew Marvell : his father was minister of. I thinke, Hull : quaere. He had good grammar-education : and was after sent to. In the time of Oliver the Protector he was Latin Secretarie. He was a great master of the Latin tongue ; an excellent poet in Latin or English : for Latin verses there was no man could come into competition with him. The verses called The Advice to the Painter were of his making.
His native towne of Hull loved him so well that they elected him for their representative in Parliament, and gave him an honourable pension to maintaine him. He was of a middling stature, pretty strong sett, roundish faced, cherry cheek t, hazell eie, browne haire.
He was in his conversation very modest, and of very few words c : and though he loved wine he would never drinke hard in company, and wasf wont to say that, he would not play the t He was wont to say that he would not drinke high or freely with any man with whom he would not intrust his life.
Aubrey, in the margin, draws a wreath of laurel, for a poet. He kept bottles of wine at his lodgeing, and many times he would drinke liberally by himselfe to refresh his spirits, and exalt his muse.
