Committed to House of Correction for one month.- James Smith was in custody on a warrant, for doing malicious damage to a dog cart, the property of William Crockett. the evidence of Mr. John Seed, in support of the complaint, was - i keep the Swan Inn, in Clarendon Street; I and Mr. Crockett went to Harbury on Thursday, the 6th of may, in his dog-cart. We stopped at the Dog Inn. the prisoner was there and told me he as sub-contractor of the railway, and gave me an order for some ale and porter. In about half an hour after this Mr. Crockett and myself were preparing to come home. I was in the dog-cart, and was driving through the village, to take Mr. Crockett up, and stopped at the door of the Crown Inn for that purpose. Mr. Crockett got into the dog-cart. The defendant was standing by, and asked me for some more ale. I refused, and he got on the shaft. I tld him to get down, but he refused. There was a man standing at the head of the horse on the near side who then moved the horse a little to the right, in doing which the shafts of the dog-cart snapped suddenly in two. we were both thrown out. - By the Bench: The reason he asked me to treat him was bbecause he had given me the order. I had previously given him some beer. he swore he would not get off the shaft, but insisted on riding. he was very drunk.-
Mr. Hoadley [sic], coach-builder, of Leamington, was called to prove that he had repaired the vehicle at an expense of £3 12s. - The charge was withdrawn, on that sum, together with 5s. for costs, being paid by the defendant."

These last survive as Nos. 35–71 (odd) Kenway Road (Nos. 57–61 rebuilt). They were erected in c. 1807–10, (ref. 8) each one bay wide and three storeys high (Plate 98b, fig. 97). Before it was renamed and renumbered as part of Kenway Road in 1908 the row was called Providence Terrace, but that aboriginal-sounding name was given it only in 1851: at first it was termed Manor Terrace (perhaps to acknowledge the significance of the manor house in Earl's Court Road for this line of route, perhaps merely to echo Smith's Manor Terrace in the King's Road), and then Earl's Court Terrace. (ref. 8) Under this name Faulkner called it ‘pleasantly situated’ in 1820. (ref. 11) The list of ratepayers about then suggests some respectability, as half a dozen of the names seem likely to be those of owners of property locally, or friends or relations of the Smiths. (ref. 8) The designer of these simple houses is not known, although in Chelsea, at least, Smith's architect may have been a Nicholas Handford.

HOADLEY V. JENKINS

Mr Beasley was council for the plaintiff; and Mr Joyce and Mr. Rigby for the defendant.
The action was brought by the plaintiff, a coachbuilder at Kensington, to recover 76l. 12s. for a waggonette and repairs thereto. The defendant pleaded his discharge under a composition deed. The plaintiff had refused to assent to the deed, but the requisite majority of creditors has assented to a composition of 2s. 6d. in the pound, and the only question in this case was whether the amount the plaintiff was entitled to had been tendered to him or to a person authorised by him to receive it. The tender, in point of fact, was made to the plaintiff's nephew, who was in his employ as a coach painter, but had no authority to cast in this matter. The nephew refused to take the money, and it was not left.
The jury returned a verdict for the plaintiff, finding that the nephew was not authorised to accept the tender.

At BOW-STREET, Samuel Dunstall, assistant to Mr. E. Hoadley, 1, York-place, Brighton, grocer, was charged with stealing 11 blank forms, and forging and uttering five post-office orders for 10l. each. Mr Peacock, the Post-office solicitor, prosecuted. It was proved that the prisoner, who had been many years in the same service, assisted his employer in the management of a branch receiving-house. He absconded from his situation on the 26th, and the next day it was discovered that 11 forms had been torn from the middle of the post-office order book. It transpired afterwards that four of them had been filled up for sums of 10l each, payable to Albert Brown, at other branch offices at Brighton, and the next morning the prisoner presented them, and actually received the 40l before the fraud was discovered. The prisoner went to York and obtained another 10l there; but on presenting a sixth order the postmaster became suspicious, stated that the advice had been improperly made out, and requested the prisoner to call again the next day. A telegram had been sent to the London office, and thence to Brighton, and another telegram informed the officials that the prisoner was on his way back to London. Accordingly, Smee, the Post-office constable, communicated with the railway officials at Hitchin, and waited the arrival of the train at King's Cross, where the prisoner, on stepping out of one of the carriages, was taken into custody. On the charge being mentioned, he said, "Yes, I expected as much," and at once confessed his guilt. One of the blank forms had been found in his bag, and, on being asked what he had done with the others, he replied, "Oh, you may as well have the lot," and taking off one of his boots, produced the remaining five orders from the inside. Mr Vaughan committed him for trial.

frederick and his family must have moved here between April 1861 and March 1862. They had moved to Hastings by April 1864.

I haven't yet got a definite date for the demolition of Shaftesbury Terrace - the above suggests soon after 1862, so perhaps they weren't at Shaftesbury Terrace very long ...

Note on Husband: William HOADLY (2)

William (1799-1854) was originally apprenticed as a coach builder to his father in Maidstone in 1814.

 

In 1822, he completed his apprenticeship, and was made a Freeman of Maidstone.

 

At some point after this, he appears to have gone into a partnership with his father, but this was dissolved on 12 February 1828.

 

it would seem that William then went into partnership with his brother Alexander, but this was dissolved in on 12 November 1831.

 

William Hoadly Jnr and his wife Sophia Maria Hoadly (1798-1877) and sons William, Henry and Alfred remained in Maidstone (in 1831 they were living in St Faith's Green, Maidstone).

 

It was probably at this time that William went up to Northampton to manage the Coach manufacturing business of Francis Mulliner, (1789-1841) of Leamington Spa and Northampton, who had six sons and six daughters. Mulliner had a coach building business in Northampton, the business was a continuing branch of a family business founded in Northampton in the 1760s to hire out carriages. this explains what William was doing in that town at the time of the birth of his son Edward in 1832.

 

By 1834, the family appear to have been resident in Leamington Priors, when their fifth son, Samuel, was born. The final two chidren, Sophia Still and Frederick Augustus were also born in Leamington in 1836 and 1838.

 

It seems likely that the move to Leamington was a continuance of his work for Francis Mulliner, who also had Coach building interests in Leamington. His son Henry Mulliner (1827-1887) published his book Carriage Builder's Tour in America in Leamington in 1883. Henry's Leamington Spa coach building business in Bedford Street and The Parade later had its carriage works in Packington Square and showroom in Chapel Street. Henry's second son Arthur Felton Mulliner (1859-1946) on Henry's death took over the family's Northampton business.

 

It may be that Francis Mulliner originated the businesses in Bedford Street and Packington Square, which would also explaing how William Hoadly came to be living at both addresses in Leamington.

 

On 13 April 1841, William announced in the Leamington newspaper that her was commencing in his own coach manufacturing business at Augusta Place, Leamington Priors. he wrote that for the previous ten years he had been manager for the late Mr Mulliner, coach manufacturer.

 

William's troubles seem to commence in Leamington around 1843.

On 26th August of that year he was fined 6d for suffering his chimney to be on fire.

 

it appears that William was running into financial difficulties with his business by 1843.

 

On 11 September 1843, it is reported that Augusta Place is to be sold for rent @ £70 - now in occupation of Mr Hoadly.

 

On 28th March 1844 Perry's bankrupt gazette reported that William was subject to a Deed of Assignment, indictaing that he had got into financial difficulty, and faced having to sell his buisines and personal effects. By August of the same year, it seems that he may have resolved his difficulties, as he recommenced his business once again at Augusta Place.

 

The family lived at Bedford Street, while the Coach Buliding business was conducted at August Place.

 

The family eventually moved back to London by 1851. Could it be that the London move was to rejoin his brother Alexander, who was established as a coach builder himself in High Street Kensington? Also, William's son Henry was living in London in 1851. In the census of that year the family are living at 24 Endell Street, possibly in lodgings. By 1854, they were at 10 Leigh Street, St Pancras. Probably this too was a lodging house. It was here that William died quite young (54) near Kings Cross in 1854. My suspicion is that he may have suffered from an incapacitating illness that may have interfered with his coach building, hence the financial trouble, and by the time of his death in London, he was a railway clerk.

 

His widow, Sophia, continued to live in London, Kensington, until her death in 1877.

Note on Wife: Sophia Maria STILL (1) - shared note

In the census of 1861 [RG9/19/74] and 1871 [RG10/31/101] Sophia was living with her widowed daughter, Sophia Still Hazard at 3a Orchard Terrace Cottages, St Mary Abbotts, Kensington.

 

In 1861, she describes herself in the census as "A proprietor of houses".

 

Sophia's will was executed by her daughter, and proved in 1877.

 

The following is from a website concerning Staplehurst - address as follows:

 

http://www.staplehurstvillage.org.uk/staplehurstsociety/people2.html

 

This is an account written by an old Staplehurst inhabitant - and contains references to the Still family, as follows:

 

"STAPLEHURST 1819 to 1825

 

Introduction

At the suggestion and in compliance with the request of many friends, I narrate some particulars as to the state of my native Parish in my early years. I was born on third of June 1811. I confine myself pretty much to the years 1819 in which the Queen was born, to 1825, by so doing I avoid touching on political or other controversial matters.

 

The Village

Staplehurst was then and is still one the prettiest Villages in the County. As you enter from the North there is a pretty artistic house called The Cottage, thatched with reeds which was built by a Mr Gillet, and was destroyed by fire in 1827. Further on stands the fine old mansion of Loddenden. With other boys on the acquittal of Queen Caroline I followed the band into Loddenden and through the Village to see the wonderful illuminations.

 

Loddenden was owned and occupied by Mr Chambers Usborne. Passing up the village we come to what is now called The Limes, where I have often seen Dr. Watson with his white powdered hair pacing to and fro and heard his well known low cough.

 

On the top of the Hill opposite Bell Lane was Mr Bromley’s Butcher's shop. Between the path and the main road stands the joss block. The butcher’s man threatened us small boys that he would cut our heads off with his big knife, and I for one believed it. At the Church gates was Thwaites Butcher’s shop, just below it Pattisons small cottage He was a good civil little old man.

In the year 1841 Mrs. Barling and myself became teetollers, one day he came with a gallon stone jar and said to my wife, “I understand since you have become teetotalers you are going to throw your wine away, which will be a great pity will you give me some of it?" He was told we had no wine to throw away. Close to his house were the stocks, I saw George Grandsbury in them for being drunk. He twisted and swore and foamed at the mouth but his feet were fast in the stocks. Was it not a better way of treating drunkards than the present respectable plan of imposing a small fine by the Magistrates?

Some years later Shop, House, Stocks and Cage were all removed. Opposite Bell Lane were two very high posts one on each side of the road, and, beam across the top from the middle of which hung the sign The Bell. We boys when we saw a very high load of Hops coming up used to guess whether it was high enough to make the sign swing. If it did there was a clapping of hands. Of course all this was before the crown of the hill was removed which was done about 1834.

 

With the exception of the Chapel, The Manse, the house of Mr Jull and the front of Mr Piper’s shop, the Village except that it has been brightened up, is much the same as it was seventy years ago.

 

The Church which “tops the Hill”, had a large number of square pews, there also a wide and deep gallery where the singers and musicians used to sit. In its front a large black board on which was chalked the Psalms and Anthems which were to be sung. The large gallery was not in harmony with the pews. Was it erected in the days of Daniel Poyntell? called the “learned Poyntell”,. as history says great crowds came to hear his expositions. Pews and gallery were all removed and the Church reseated many years after.

 

The Rev. Joseph Varenne was the Rector, he collected the Tythes in kind and erected a large Barn and Oast house, sent his wagons to collect the tenth cock of hay, and the tenth shock of corn, the tenth bushel of hops.

 

At the close of his life he was afflicted with blindness. He was most unpopular in the Parish and was followed by Mr ………(no name) who was highly esteemed by Churchmen and Dissenters.

 

On the site of the present Congregational Chapel stood the old Meeting House. It was a peculiar structure, my Grandmother lived in part of the building & kept a small shop which was under one of the galleries. Mr Hunt was the Minister being old and very much afflicted the Congregation had diminished to half a dozen. My cousin and I used to count how many times he used a favourite expression in Prayer "A thousand thanks O father of' mercy". He was a good man, in 1824 he conveyed the Meeting House to the late Mr Jull & my late Father who put the property in trust & the present Chapel was erected in 1825. There was a small Baptist Chapel which was afterwards sold to the followers of the late .Dr Burch.

 

Mr Dobell who lived and kept the shop where Mr Spicer now is was the Minister. The attendance at all the places of worship was at very small and religion in the Parish a very low ebb.

 

Schools

 

"Be it a weakness it deserves some praise

We love the play place of our early days

The fond attachment of the well loved place

Where first we started into life’s long race

Maintains its hold with such unfailing sway

We feel it less in age & at our latest days”

 

When very young I was sent to Molly Masters school. I have no recollection of learning to read. I could read the New Testament as well at six years of age as I can now. I next went to the school kept by Mr Beadle, it was a brick and tile building adjoining the Church North side. There were the boys in the “Benefactio”, next the pay scholars of which I was one also a considerable number of boarders.

 

Mr Beadle was a good kind easy going master, not very strict fond of a good dinner, in afternoons he would pretty frequently put his spectacles on his forehead, place his arms on the desk and take a little sleep. The knowledge of this went “whispering round". In the school was a boy named Winter, he could not play Cricket, or possibly any other game but he could work sums. The Boarders supplied him pretty libera1ly from their pocket money to work their sums for them. Often when they showed their slates to the Master he said “You have been to Winter again”. Just outside the school room door there was plenty of room and no graves and we used to play a splendid game called fives against the Church Tower. Our balls never injured the Tower but when the school was pulled down in 1832 the boys were no longer permitted to play fives there.

 

At ten years of age I was taken from School, had to enter the battle of life and from that time to earn my own living.

 

Happy days of boyhood. Mrs Beadle kept a girls school. She wore a turban, fed the Boarders well & took care of them. The boys all liked her much.

 

The Inhabitants

Change is the diet on which all subsist

Created changeable, and change at last destroys them.

 

And so nearly all those who inhabited the Parish 75 years ago are now gone to "that home from whence no traveller returns”. Out of some seventy Farmers nearly all of whom I knew personally, where are the Ballards, Brooke, Butchers, the Reeves, the Spongs, Stills, Spicers? gone, and only some of the same name their descendants of about twenty of the Tradesmen are found.

 

Probably the same element of change is to be found among the working class in about the same proportion.

 

Where are the round frocks and fustion jackets. the red cloaks and the pattens? Where is the "tinderbox", the flint and steel and the rushlight candles? It is the same Staplehurst but so different in so many ways:, but nearly all "the old familiar Faces" of my youthful days are passed away.

 

I give two pictures, the parties are all dead long ago.

Mrs. George at the Pinnock was about the best dairy woman in the Parish, but she took a large quantity of snuff, fastidious person about the butter but not the snuff. I know not if it was an affliction, or merely a. habit, in speaking to you she preceded what she had to by by che, che, che.

 

Mr Nicholas Toke Usborne who lived at Loddenden before Mr. Chambers Usborne was afflicted by being a great stutterer.

A Mrs Biggs, who. lived at Biggs Barn had a son who was similarly afflicted, he was sent with a message to Mrs Usborne, the boy could not get his word out, so something like the following took place,"Yes m,m,mum, I am a young r,r,rascal” then the boy tired (sic), (“)I didn’t m, m, mean you Sir,(“) so Mr Usborne told the boy he would see his Father about his bad behaviour, which he did next day. Mr Biggs assured Mr Usborne that his son really could not help it. “P, p poor boy, I am very sorry for him, give him this half crown”. “A fellow feeling makes us wondrous kind”.

 

Roads

As the public has been in the enjoyment of excellent roads for a large number of years. it may seem strange that at the time of which I am writing with the exception of a few roads at Chittenden, and of course the main road through the Village the whole of the so called roads of the Parish were soft mud roads. Proof of this I can give from unpleasant personal experience.

 

One winter I. had several journeys with my Father bringing corn from Exhurst with the wheels in ruts up to the naves.

 

Another winter we were bringing timber from Mr. Stills woods. There was a wash pinnock named “Robin Hole", my father obtained of Mr Still four of his horses to help us through the hole. With Mr Still I walked on the other side of the hedge and crossed the stream with a plank. Two of the horses fell down in the mud, Mr. Still was a gentleman who would not make use of an oath on any account, but he could not help exclaiming "Bam it, bam it, they, wull all be down”, and sure enough in getting through the slough seven out of the eight horses fell and were floundering in the mud.

 

During another winter we had to bring some thick oak planks from Cockle Wood. The ruts were so deep and the road so bad that we could not get the timber tug near the place, and we drew the planks on the ground as far as Henhurst and then loaded them.

 

Some years before this at the end of' the road where Mr Shoobridge shop now is, during a flood a post chaise was by some accident driven into the water and overturned. How our forefathers through the centuries got on with these so called roads is a mystery.

 

They erected large Farm Houses, as at Hartsheath and Pagehurst but stone roads was too great a matter for them to attempt.

 

It is said the darkest hours are just before the dawning of the morning. At the time of which I am writing and a few years after there great distress in the Parish, many men being out of employment for several weeks during the winter months.

 

Generally some thirty or more men on Friday night attended the Committee room to apply for and to receive relief, the poor rates were about thirteen shillings in the pound for the year.

Various plans were adopted, one of which was to billet the men for a certain number of days in the week on different Farmers and Tradesmen. After a while this thought in some way got into the heads at least of a few, will it not be better to take steps so as to stone the roads rather than keeping the men to walk about in idleness. This -sensible conclusion was acted on, and as a stone pit was opened at Chittenden a large quantity of stones was drawn in the winter. In the following summer the road was stoned from the Pinnock as far as Henhurst.

It was my privilege to assist in bringing the pit stones into the roads. Pits were afterwards opened at Maplehurst and Pagehurst, and gradually, very gradually, the whole of nearly twenty miles of roads on the parish were metalled, which took nearly twenty years to accomplish. A word of praise is due to the late Benjamin Samson for throwing up the roads to make them round before the stones were put on. The expense was borne by a Highway rate that exceeded 2/0 in the pound on the houses and land of the Parish.

 

Hedges and Ditches

One improvement leads on to another, the room for which increases as you proceed. thus high hedges were cut down especially on the sides of the road to let the sun and wind do their part. The hedgerows were grubbed and other hedges were cut down to let in light and air. The time was not yet come for draining the land except with stones or bushes. Simple as it now appears, the genius had not yet been found to invent a tile machine, but after a time one of these were found, and I believe one was found in this parish. Drain tiles were then made and sold at moderate prices. Much of the arable and hop land was under drained and the land generally was more highly cultivated, and thus in one way or another nearly all found profitable employment.

Readers who are now living can compare the state of the Village and the Parish with how it was some seventy to eighty years ago, as given in this narrative and I trust will act on the counsel of the wise man "Say not that the former days were better than these”. Should you doubt “thou dost not act wisely concerning it".

 

Robert Barling January 18 1898. "

Note on Wife: Sophia Maria STILL (2)

It is possible that Sophia may have moved at some point after the death of her husband in 1854 to 52 Hartland Rd, Camden, London NW1.

My reasoning being that her eldest son William puts Hartland Road as his address on his marriage certificate in 1857, and Frederick Dibsdall Hazard, her son-in-law died at this address in November 1858 and his death was registered by his mother-in-law (i.e. Sophia Hoadly).

The death of her grandaughter, Sophia Hazard is registered in Kensington, whist her birth is registered in Pancras. It may be then, that Sophia and her daughter and grandaughter might have moved from 52 Hartland Road to 3a Orchard Terrace, St Philip, Kensington, Middlesex at a point between November 1858 and March 1859.

Here is a description of a property next door but one to 23 Endell Street, where William Hoadly and his family were living in 1851. The family shared a premises with three other families. It is unclear what their circumstances were at this time. As they had experienced bankruptcy in Leamington in the 1840s, it is reasonable to suppose that their circumstances may not have been good.

In the same census, number 13 is described as a "lodging" - so maybe number 23 was a lodging house.

It seems the St Giles Workhouse must also have been very close.

XLIX.—No. 25, ENDELL STREET.
Ground Landlords.

The Trustees of the late John King, Esq.
General description and date of structure.

Plots of land on both sides of Belton Street were leased for building by Sir John Brownlow, apparently in 1682, (fn. 1) and a stone tablet (fn. 2) gave the date of the street's formation as 1683. The name obviously refers to the seat of the Brownlow family at Belton in Lincolnshire.

About 1846 the street was widened on the eastern side and renamed Endell Street, after the Rev. James Endell Tyler, then Rector of St. Giles.

At the expiration of the original leases in 1728, Peter Walter purchased portions of the Brownlow property, including a house in Belton Street "in the occupation of Daniel Holme, (fn. 3) surgeon, and used by him as a bagnio." (fn. 4) Holme's Bagnio was, it appears, the fourth house (inclusive) from the corner of Castle Street, and is therefore to be identified with the present No. 25, Endell Street.

At the rear of these premises is an apartment, about 16 feet by 9 feet, which is known as "Queen Anne's Bath." It has a coved ceiling surmounted by a small lantern, and on each side bull's eye windows are constructed in the coved part of the ceiling. The roof is covered with tiles. The form of the chamber can be seen by Plate 37, which is taken from a water-colour drawing made by J. W. Archer in 1844. There are some blue and white tiles still affixed to the walls, but there is insufficient evidence to enable a definite date to be given to these. The level of the top of the steps is about 10 feet below the present street pavement. The floor of the bath is said to be about 18 feet below that level, but it cannot be seen as the bath is filled with soil and rubbish to an estimated depth of about 8 feet. The structure is dilapidated and floored over at about 18 inches below pavement level, and is now used as an iron merchant's store.

Tradition asserts that the bath was frequented by Queen Anne, (fn. 5) a statement that it is not possible to confirm. The apartment is, however, very possibly a relic of the old "bagnio."
The Council's collection contains:—

(fn. 6) No. 25, Endell Street—Queen Anne's Bath (photograph).
No. 41, Endell Street—Exterior (photograph).
