Note on Husband: James Bickford HEARD aka Lottwhich Harrington HEARD (1)

James Bickford Heard was born in 1848 to Edward Heard and his second wife Charlotte Conde. In 1873 he took an alias of Lottwhich Harrington, why I have not yet found out. He lived with Elizabeth Hoadly a widow in Leamington Warwickshire. She gave birth to their son Lottwhich Harrington in 1873. In 1874 Lottwhich senior went to Prison for theft. In 1876 Elizabeth gave birth to their second son James Bickford Heard b Leamington Warwickshire. From 1881 the family are living in Herne Hill Lambeth, but James is now with Sophia Hoadly, Elizabeths daughter. His son James Bickford b 1876 is living with him and Sophia while Lottwhich is living with his Mother.

[Sandra Jarrett]

Note on Husband: James Bickford HEARD aka Lottwhich Harrington HEARD (2)

On the 30th June 1874 James Bickford Heard, alias Lottwhich Harrington was up in court for theft. He was a coachman working for Edward Reaston. On 25th May 1874 he received from Herbert Roberts the sum of 18s on account, he handed to his master 10s and kept 8s. The next day he collected from the same person 13s on account, but kept 3s. He pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 4 months hard labour.

[Sandra Jarrett]

Note on Wife: Elizabeth SMITH (1) - shared note

Probably born between 8 April and 1 August 1834.

 

In 1871, The widowed Elizabeth is living at 16 Park Street, Leamington Priors, Warwickshire, with her children.

[RG10/3195/1/10]

 

In 1881 Elizabeth and her two daughters Elizabeth and Katherine were living in Shakespeare Road, Herne Hill.

[RG11/0622/48/25]

 

In 1891 she was living at 10 Pulross Road, Brixton, with her daughter, Elizabeth.

[RG12/409/13/136].

 

In 1901 she is in the Royal Hospital For Incurables, her infirmity defined as "Rheum." presumably her arthritis.

 

"My mother also spoke of Eva having gone on regular visits to "Grandma Hoadly" in the Royal Hospital for Incurables, so I was interested to see from your website that that was where Elizabeth Hoadly died."

Note on Wife: Elizabeth SMITH (2)

After her husband's death, Elizabeth was left with five children whose ages ranged from 9 to a new born baby.

 

My great grandfather, Frederick William Hoadly (1861-1946); Sophia Hoadly (1862-1921); Edward Augustus Hoadly (1864-1902); Elizabeth Hoadly born 1867 and Katherine Hoadly born 1869.

 

There is no record of Katherine's birth which is slightly mysterious in itself, especially when linked with subsequent information.

 

In 1873, Elizabeth gave birth to a boy, with the curious name of Lottwhich Harrington. On the birth certificate it is claimed that Elizabeth was married to the father, Lottwhich Harrington. There is no record of such a marriage. Also, it has become clear that the man who called himself "Lottwhich Harrington" was in fact James Bickford Heard (1848-1941).

 

James seems rather shady. He was imprisoned, under his alias, as detailed in the following report.

Crime

Crime: Embezzlement

Crime Location: Leamington

Crime Date: 1874

Sentence: 4mHL

 

From Coventry Herald 3rd July 1874:

 

"EMBEZZLEMENT BY A CARMAN: Lottwhich Harrington, car driver, of Leamington, surrendered to his recognisances, and was charged with having, at Leamington, on 25th May, embezzeled 8s, the property of Mr Edward Reaston, his master. He was convicted, and sentenced to four months imprisonment, with hard labour."

 

So at the time of her supposed husband's imprisonment, Elizabeth was stuck with six children, including my great grandfather, age 13 and the rest of her children including the new born Lottwhich!

 

Elizabeth then went on to have a further child with "Lottwhich" AKA James Bickford Heard. James Bickford Heard (Jnr) was the name of her next son, and he was born in 1876.

 

I should mention at this point that according to the death certificate, Elizabeth was not present at her husband's (Frederick Augustus Hoadly) death.

 

Instead a woman named Susan Price is recorded as being present. We have no idea who she was. Was she a "girlfriend" or just a concerned lady looking after a very ill man?

 

We wonder if perhaps Elizabeth might have already been seeing James Heard ... Might he even have been the father of Katherine Hoadly, hence no record of her birth? We have no way of knowing at this time. If the latter was true, Katherine states that Frederick Augustus was her (deceased) father on her marriage certificate, so it would seem that as far as she was concerned, Frederick WAS her father.

 

In any event it seems that Elizabeth and James Bickford Heard continued to live in Leamington with all the children during the 1870s.

 

Now the story gets even MORE complicated!

 

In 1880, Sophia Hoadly, daughter of Frederick Augustus and Elizabeth Hoadly, born 1862, gave birth to the first of her eight children all born between 1880 and 1897. The father: James Bickford Heard, who had already had children with her mother, Elizabeth!

 

There is no record of a marriage of Sophia Hoadly to anyone - certainly not to James, but they seemed to have set up home together and had eight children.

 

By the way, Sophia would have only been 18 at the time if the birth of her first child in 1880. Elizabeth would have been 46!

 

Meanwhile, Elizabeth seems to have also moved down to London by the 1881 census - possibly following James. She is living in Brixton with her daughters Elizabeth and Katherine, and son Lottwhich. James, Sophia and their son are not far away, in Dulwich. The son had been born in Brixton in 1880.

 

So - you can see the life of my great great grandma was extraordinarily complex!

 

By 1891 she was living with her daughter Elizabeth in Brixton, but by 1901 she was already in the Royal Hospital for Incurables where she appears to have remained until her death in 1915.

 

What are we to make of these complicated relationships? Certainly there wasn't much money in this family; was she driven by poverty to set up with Heard in order to have someone help her look after her young family? What was the effect of her daughter Sophia taking up with this same man, and having a large, illegitimate family with him?

 

The daughter of my great uncle Len Hoadly (Joyce Hoadly) told me that Len used to visit his grandmother Elizabeth when she was living in Herne Hill - his memory was of a nice old lady apparently. It was from her that I got the photograph of Elizabeth.

 

What drove great great grandfather to drink? Was it Elizabeth's behaviour, or did his drinking drive her to seek solace elsewhere?

 

I suspect there was a lot of heartache here, whatever the truth of the story.

 

In research terms, it was fellow genealogist Sandra Jarrett who helped uncover this mystery, as she researched her husband's family, and the journey has been SO exciting!

 

Between us we have also had contact with descendants of Sophia and James Bickford Heard in USA, AS SOME OF Sophia's children emigrated there quite early on.

 

As for the two children of Elizabeth and James:

 

Lottwhich married in England in 1895. The next we hear of him, he is in Belgium!

 

His brother James Bickford Heard Jnr seems to have gone out there already, and married a Belgian woman.

 

Unfortunately James died in Belgium quite young aged 24.

 

The next we hear of Lottwhich is that he married his brother's widow in Belgium. We have no idea what happened to his first wife - did they divorce, did she die .... She just seems to disappear!

 

And then, Lottwhich is last Heard of living in Anderlecht in 1905, and then he too seems to disappear from the records! No idea when or where he died.

 

Sandra Jarrett writes this:

 

"I feel that I have to defend James in a small way. He was 24 years old when he found himself with a child plus Elizabeths children. It could have been that he was a lodger with Elizabeth and then fell for her. His criminal action should not be condoned but he was probably finding it hard to support the family. He served his time and went back to Elizabeth and had James B Junior. He did not commit any further crime. Why he changed his name is still under investigation. They stayed together from at least 1872 - 1879. I think that the whole family came to Lambeth together, because Lottwhich junior had been at school since 1879 he then re-enrolled in 1883 at a school in Dulwich living with his Father.

 

Yes, James then went on to have a family with Sophia and they stayed together until she died in 1921.

 

Lottwhich junior trained as a Jockey and in 1891 is in Lambourn. Can't find him in 1901 as yet.

 

He turns up in Belgium in 1903 and I have received an emergency passport for the States issued to Lottwhich in September 1914. On the back he has written that he kept the passport as a souvenier for the gratitude shown by the Americans during their last trouble. This makes me feel that he was alive in 1940 as this passport turned up held in the William Hallam Tuck papers currently held at the Hoover institution, in a box dated 1940.

 

I would love to know if Lottwhich had any family, but Belgian records are difficult to trace as they go in parishes, they do not have one central archive, and they are expensive to purchase."

 

To round off the story - with yet more unanswered questions:

 

The children of my great grandfather Frederick Augustus Hoadly and Elizabeth.

 

The eldest, Frederick William Hoadly was my great grandfather. He died in 1946.

 

I don't know exactly when his sister Elizabeth died but I believe she lived into the 1950s. She has living Hilkene descendants.

 

Edward Augustus Hoadly died of a heart attack in His Majesty's Theatre, Haymarket in 1902. He was only 39. He had been painting Sir Herbert Beerbohm Tree's dressing room, and fell from the scaffolding after the heart attack. He doesn't appear to have had any children, but seemed to have lived with a woman bamed Jane who he claimed in the censuses was hus wife - but there is no record of his ever marrying.

 

Sophia died in 1921.

 

Katherine Hoadly is the final mystery.

 

She married Edward John Hattin in 1890. The 1891 census has the couple living in Brixton with a baby daughter Maud Hattin. However there is no record of Maud's birth, and the whole family completely disappear from the records after 1891!

 

Of my great grandfather's siblings the only ones my grandfather or his children ever seemed to speak of were Elizabeth.

 

Sophia, Edward and Katherine were never mentioned to anyone's memory, and certainly not their half siblings Lottwhich and James.

Some questionable details on this certificate. Of course the father's true name was James Bickford Heard. He used an alias on this registration [Lottwhich Harrington]. Also the mother was in fact Elizabeth Hoadly but he gives her "new" surname as "Harringtoin". They never married.

Text From Source: Dear Graham,

My name is Sinead, I am involved with the archives here at the RHN (although my main role here is in fundraising).
Unfortunately there is no paid archivist here and our archives are only beginning to be analysed fully so we don't have a huge amount of detail available.
We are excited to be working on a project that would see lots of our records properly assessed and digitised so that they could be available online - I will make sure to let you know if and when this happens!

But back to your great-grandmother - I'm delighted to report that I was able to find her admission records in our archives.
The record is in what we call 'patient intake' books - so it is basically a one-page form that was filled out for each patient who came to the RHN (or RHI as it was known).

From the records we have these details:

Name: Elizabeth Hoadly
Place of Residence: 33 Noyna Road, Upper Tooting, S.W.
Date of Birth: 21 April 1834
Condition: Widowed
Disease or Affliction: Chronic rheumatic gout
duration of illness: 10 years
means of support: dependent on son and daughter
Position: Husband (deceased) was a chef
Presented for election: July 1899
Elected: Nov 1899
Admitted: Dec 1899
Died: Aug 1915

To give you a little more information on what some of this means, I will just tell you briefly about the hospital as it was in the 20th century.
The Royal Hospital for Incurables was established as a charity in 1854 - as you say the name 'Royal' was in use in the title long before 1917, however we only received official permission to use this title in 1917. The founder Dr. Andrew Reed had established 4 charities previously, focused largely on children, and had not had any difficulties obtaining the use of the Royal title, and a Royal charter. However the innovative, and even somewhat controversial topic of 'incurables' at the time led to the delay.

The hospital was set up to care for those people who had been discharged from general hospitals as 'incurable' or who suffered chronic illness. At the time this included injuries causing physical disability, severe gout, cancers, epilepsy and other illnesses that we would now consider largely treatable.

As the hospital was established as a charity there was a constant need to raise funds. One of the ways they did this was through the election system. Supporters would get a number of votes depending on their level of support. When people applied to come to the RHN their details would be sent around to supporters who would vote as to which of the applications should be admitted. This sounds very odd now, but was a common practice in Victorian charitable institutions.

There were two different levels of support which could be offered. These were 'inmate' meaning in-patient, and 'pensioner' meaning that people would remain in their own homes but would be given a small stipend in order to help them pay for care or cover for loss of earnings.
As you can see from your records your great-grandmother was admitted as an 'inmate' meaning that she came to live here at the RHN.

Unfortunately we don't seem to have any other images of your great-grandmother.
If you would like to visit, please don't hesitate to contact me and I would be happy to arrange a tour.
I work part time (usually Monday-Wednesday) and would be delighted to meet you if this kind of time would be suitable.

In the meantime I do hope you find the information interesting and best wishes with your continued searches!

Kind regards
Sinead

Elizabeth's date of birth is given at her admission to the Royal Hospital For Incurables in 1899. Being born prior to 1837, there is, of course no Birth Certificate.
So far (July 2016) we have found no credible baptism for her in the Norwich Parish Records, assuming that she was baptised at all.
Indeed, she thus far is not traceable in any records that we have found from her birth until her marriage, age 25, in 1859.
She is consistent that she was born in Norwich in all her census declarations. What we don't know yet is how long she lived there after her birth, and how she ended up in Folkestone when she married Frederick in 1859, or where she may have been in between.
Very frustrating!

I have learned that he was born in Leamington on May the 16th 1873 and that he moved from Molenbeek (suburb of Brussels) to Brussels and left Brussels for Anderlecht (another suburb of Brussels) on January the 9th 1905. His job was jockey and he married BELLON, Céline, Thérèse, widow and divorced (born in Brussels on December the 17th 1871) in Molenbeek on October the 3rd 1903. He lived with her in a house in the rue du Commerce, 112. It is all I have found about him in the records of the City of Brussels, because he moved for Anderlecht in 1905. If you want to know more about him after 1905, you have to take contact with the commune of Anderlecht (http://www.anderlecht.be).

I wish you good luck in your research
