Note on Husband: Alfred HOADLY (1)

Alfred seems to have commenced his career as a cook. Certainly by 1851, he was a cook at the Pavilion Hotel in Folkestone (along with his brother, Samuel). By 1861 he was still a cook in London, living, and presumably working, in the Brompton / Kensington area.

He was still in London in November 1867, at the time of his marriage to Jane.

Alfred and Jane at some point became proprietors of the Grosvenor Hotel, in Chester (which was built in 1865, and opened on 1st January 1866), possibly after their marriage in 1867. The first manager of the Grosvenor was Mr Glasspool. It's possible Alfred and Jane took over from Glasspool. They were certainly there by Februaray 1868, and probably remained there until the end of April 1869, when a Mr Forster took over.

They then took over the management of the Palace Hotel, Buxton from about May 1869, and remained there until they assumed the management of the Royal York Hotel on the Old Steine, Brighton in June 1874.

Alfred remained the proprietor there until his death in 1885, after which Jane carried on the business until 1900, when J. Foster Woosman became the proprietor.

Note on Husband: Alfred HOADLY (2) - shared note

At the 1851 Census, Alfred was working as a Cook alongside his brother Samuel at the Pavilion Hotel, Folkestone, Kent.

[HO107/1633/51]

 

In 1861 Census, Alfred, Frances, and Lydia Harriett Grutch were living at 21 New Street, Brompton - where Frances died.

[RG9/20/23].

 

By 1871, Alfred and his second wife, Jane, were proprietors of the Palace Hotel, Buxton, where they were living with Jane's daughter from her first marriage, Clara Ellen James.

[RG10/3635/12]

 

In 1881 Alfred and Jane were proprietors of the Royal York Hotel, Brighton.

From "A Peep Into the Past: Brighton in the Olden Time, with Glances at the Present" (1892)

 

Chapter "Notable Houses on the Steine" Page 149:

 

"At the time the Royal York Hotel was opened, and during the

next few years, Brighton was at the acme of its pre- Railway prosperity ;

upwards of forty coaches being on the road between Brighton and

London alone. The visitors to the town during the years 1821-22

were little short of 20,000 ; hotel and lodging-house accommodation

commanded fancy prices, but, notwithstanding, by reason of its

charming situation, the new hotel was throughout the season in-

variably full of guests. Occasionally, too, concerts and readings were

given in the Saloon of the Hotel ; a favourite reader there being the

late Mr. B. H. Smart, one of the best Shakespearean readers of his

day. The first Brighton Tradesmen's Ball, it may he stated, was

given at the Royal York Hotel in 1823.

 

On Mr. Sheppard's retirement, he was succeeded by Mr. George

Parsons, of the Sea House Hotel, Worthing (brother to the late Mr.

Joseph Parsons, auctioneer, of Brighton), who occupied it for some

three or four years. In 1827, the Hotel was in the hands of Mr.

Harry Pegg, who came to Brighton from High Wickham. Important

additions were made to the Hotel by Mr. Pegg ; two houses to the

westward and the house to the eastward being taken in, forming the

Hotel into one block, as it now stands. The Hotel formerly

possessed some very quaint old furniture, articles of vertu, &c,

which had once done duty in the Royal Pavilion, but these, together

with its stock of wine, were disposed of by public auction when the

present proprietor, Mr. Alfred Hoadly, formerly of the Palace Hotel,

Buxton, took possession, in June, 1874 ;* the sale occupying no less

than seven days, and the catalogue containing no less than 1,752

lots. The Hotel was then closed for a short time, whilst several

thousands of pounds were laid out in renovating, redecorating,

and refurnishing. It has most extensive accommodation, making up

nearly 100 beds; and whilst some of the rooms are of large pro-

portions, all the principal apartments are distinguished by Royal and

other names, such as the " Regent," " Clarence/' " York, ' " Otway,"

"Spenser," " Pope," " Gay," "Swift," " Byron," " Garrick," and the

"Newton " rooms. t

 

 

 

[* On the death of Mr. Hoadly, in 1885, the Hotel was carried on by his

widow up to January, 1890, when Mr. J. Foster Woosman became the proprietor.]

 

t An amusing anecdote is related in connection with the " name* '* of these

rooms. A visitor, on being shown the rooms, was told by his attendant that the

rooms were so designated because the various personages whose names were on

the doors had at one time or another occupied them ! When in the " Garrick "

room, the attendant blandly said to him, "You have heard of Garrick ; he was

a great actor, you know. Well, he occupied this room for a long time ! " When,",

thought the visitor (seeing that Garrick died many years before the Hotel was

built), and passed on.

BRIGHTON HERALD SATURDAY 11TH APRIL 1885:

 

"DEATH OF MR HOADLY - we regret to report the somewhat sudden death yesterday morning of Mr Alfred Hoadly, proprietor of the Royal York Hotel. Mr Hoadly was formerly of the Palace Hotel, Brixton [sic] and came to Brighton eleven years ago, taking possession of the York Hotel at the midsummer term of 1874. He soon won the respect and confidence of his neighbours, and, on coming forward for the office, was elected a Guardian of the Poor, the duties of which he discharged for several successive years, taking his seat for 1882 and 1883 as an Overseer. Mr Hoadly did not present himself for re-election last year, nor was he nominated for the Board now in process of election; but, though he had withdrawn from this sphere, in which he did quiet but useful work, he so far continued his interest in public affairs as to consent to serve as a member of the Burial Board, to which position he was re-elected only on Thursday, at the Vestry meeting. The deceased, who was 55 years of age, had been seriously ill only a week."

 

 

Brighton Guardian - Wednesday 15th April 1885:

 

"DEATH AND FUNERAL OF A BRIGHTON HOTEL PROPRIETOR

 

Brighton lost, on Friday a well-known inhabitant in the person of Mr Alfred Hoadly, the proprietor of the Royal York Hotel. During the ten years the deceased had lived in the town he had energetically devoted himself to its interests, and had for several years been a member of the Burial Board at the Vestry meeting, while he was also a candidate for re-election on the Board of Guardians. Of late Mr Hoadly had not had good health, and was under the care of Dr Carter. The deceased was in his 56th year. The funeral of the deceased took place yesterday at the Extra-Mural Cemetery, in the presence of a large number of friends. The coffin, which bore several handsome wreaths, was conveyed to the Cemetery on a funeral car, followed by two mourning coaches. Among the mourners were Mr Edward Hoadly and Mr Samuel Hoadly (brothers), Mr Alex. Hoadly (cousin), Mr G. H. Graham (son-in-law), Mr G. Pragnell, Mr James Hamblin, and Mr Ebenezer Hamblin. There were also present members of the Brighton town Council and Board of Guardians &c. The Rev. R. D. Cocking incumbent of Trinity Church, Ship Street, performed the burial service, being assisted by the Rev. W.R. Nightingale. Mr G. Attree carried out the funeral arrangements."

 

 

BRIGHTON GUARDIAN WEDNESDAY 15TH APRIL 1885:

 

"THE LATE MR HOADLY.

 

The CHAIRMAN, in the course of a few sympathetic remarks with regard to the death of Mr Alfred Hoadly, said that a few of those present had that morning visited the Extra-Mural Cemetery to pay a last token of respect to that gentleman, who had been a very useful member of the Board. (Hear, hear.) They all sympathized with Mrs. Hoadly and family in the loss they had sustained. From the year 1878 to 1883 the deceased gentleman was one of the most respected members (hear, hear), serving as a Guardian during the first four years and as an ex-officio member during the last two. In both positions he rendered good service to the parish, and he (the Chairman) proposed a vote of condolence with Mrs Hoadly and family in their bereavement. - The motion was seconded by Mr H. Carr, and was carried unanimously."

 

BRIGHTON HERALD SATURDAY 18TH APRIL 1885:

 

" FUNERAL OF MR ALFRED HOADLY: -

The remains of the late Mr Alfred Hoadly, proprietor of the York Hotel, were interred at the Extra-Mural Cemetery on Tuesday, amongst those present being several members of the Council and Board of Guardians. The first part of the funeral service was conducted at Trinity Church, with which Mr Hoadly had for years been connected, and where on Sunday a feeling allusion to his death was made by the Rev. R. Daly Cocking. The coffin bore several handsome wreaths. At the Cemetery the funeral service was concluded by the Rev. W. R. Nightingale, who had assisted Mr Cocking at the Church. The arrangements were carried out, under the supervision of Mr Kent, by Mr George Attree, of North Street."

 

BRIGHTON EXAMINER TUESDAY APRIL 21ST 1885:

 

"FUNERAL OF THE LATE MR A. HOADLY. -

In the presence of a large number of the friends and acquaintances of the late Mr Alfred Hoadly, the mortal remains of that gentleman were laid to rest in the family vault at the Extra-Mural Cemetery on Tuesday. The deceased, who was for many years proprietor of the Royal York Hotel, Old Steine, was 55 years of age, and had, in his capacity as Overseer, served as ex-officio member of the Board of Guardians. The first portion of the funeral ceremony was conducted at Trinity Church, Ship Street, where the deceased had worshipped, the officiating clergy being the Revs. R. Daly Cocking, M.A., the incumbent, and W. R. Nightingale, the latter concluding the service at the tomb. The coffin, which was of polished oak, was conveyed from the deceased's residence to the cemetery upon an open car. And bore several beautiful floral wreaths."

 

BRIGHTON EXAMINER TUESDAY APRIL 21ST 1885:

 

"THE LATE MR HOADLY. - At the close of the routine business on the agenda, the CHAIRMAN remarked that some of the Guardians present at the meeting had, that morning attended the Extra-Mural Cemetery to pay the last tribute of respect to their late friend and fellow Guardian, Mr Alfred Hoadly. He was a useful member of the Board, a gentlemanly and kind-hearted man; and he was sure they all sympathized with his friends in the loss they had sustained. (Hear, hear.) He then proceeded to move "That this Board records with much regret, the death of Mr Alfred Hoadly, who, from the year 1878 to 1883 inclusive, was one of its most respected members, the first four years as an elected Guardian, and the last two years, ex-officio, as an Overseer of the Poor. In these two offices Mr Hoadly rendered valuable service to the parish by his intelligence and business capacity, whilst his genial and courteous manner won the cordial esteem of all with whom he was officially connected. This Board further desires to express its deep sympathy with Mr Hoadly's widow and family in their bereavement." - Mr CARR seconded the motion, which was unanimously carried."9,19

BRIGHTON EXAMINER Tues April 14th 1885:

 

"DEATH OF MR. A. HOADLY On Friday, about an hour after noon, Mr. Alfred Hoadly, the proprietor of the Royal York Hotel, died very suddenly. The deceased gentleman came from Brixton [sic] some ten years ago and established himself in Brighton, where he speedily earned the respect and esteem of his fellow-townsmen. He had for several years performed the duties of a Guardian of the Poor, and at the Vestry meeting on Thursday was elected a member of the Burial Board. Mr. Hoadly, who had been attended by Dr. Carter, was in his 56th year, and had only been ill for a week. The funeral will take place in the Extra-Mural Cemetery at noon to-day (Tuesday)."
