151 All children from IGI for St Michael, Stamford, Lincs.

There is another baptism for an Elizabeth Isabella Smith (same name as another daughter & Benjamin's daughter) 2 Nov 1771 at St Michaels. This time the parents are William Smith and wife Elizabeth Isabella.

May be the mother's full name was Elizabeth Isabella but known as Isabella and they had two daughters baptised after their mother, the first one dying before 1777 when the second was born.

I looked at marriages and found an IGI LDS member submission (??);
William Smith to Elizabeth Isabella Bird 21 Oct 1770 St Michael, Stamford, Lincs.
Confirmed on FreeREG.

Marriage FreeREG (OPR St Michael,Stamford) :
21 Oct 1770 by Licence,
Willliam Smith bachelor of Stamford to Elizabeth Isabella Bird spinster of same,
witnesses Henry Newby & Mary Nichols.

The dates would work perfectly for a marriage in Oct 1770, first child in Nov 1771, second in 1773, third in 1775 etc

London Gazette also has listings of Share Holders in the London and Westminster Bank,
Charles Octavius Parnell of 10 Wimpole Street, and Charles Octavius Parnell & William McKewan of 21 Lombard Street appear as shareholders from 1857 to 1863.

Gran (Heather Phylis Smythson) describes the Parnells as a shipping family - very just and upright.(can't find any shipping references at all!)

Alex O'Hanlon (email) indicates that Charles and his partner Alfred Smith designed a number of buildings in London

The Construction History Society Newsletter in Oct 2002 has the following:
"The potential utility of structural steel in building construction had
been realised very early on. The first steel beams in the world were
rolled to order in Sheffield for the headquarters of the London and
County Bank, Lombard Street, completed in 1861-2 to designs by
Charles Octavius Parnell (1807-1865). Occupying 'one-half the
depth iron would have required', these Bessemer members were used
for the upper floor girders, thus enabling 'the whole of the space on
the ground-floor [to be made] available for the working of the
establishment'. "

Charles and Alfred Smith (1843-1872) might have designed the Army & Navy Club, St. James Square

159 Baptism (OPR Ancestry):
17 Dec 1817 St James, Clerkenwell
John Noble Course, son of Thomas & Sarah Course, oilman of Corporation Lane.

1851 census: age 33 Dry Salter born Clerkenwell with wife Helen E 31, children John N 3 & Thomas 1 both born Islington ,& step daughter Isabella Daniel 6 born Bourne, Lincs, at 13 Bedford Row, Islington. (St Mary).

Not at home in any other censuses.

Marriage cert ref: Helen Eliza Daniell to John Noble Course Dec qtr 1845 Stamford 14 1029.

Marriage (OPR findmypast):
24 Dec 1845 All Saints, Stamford, Lincs. by License.
Helen Eliza Daniell (Smith) full age widow of Rutland Terrace, All Saints to
John Noble Course full age bachelor oil merchant of St James Clerkenwell Middlesex
fathers' names; Benjamin Christian Smith, gentleman & Thomas Course, gentleman.
winesses: Joseph Wilson & Elizabeth Palmer

At the time of his sons' deaths; John Noble Course 1880 Montreal, Canada & Arthur Course 1885 in Hornsey, Middlesex, he is the next of kin but probate is granted to George W Richardson the Assignee for creditors to bankruptcy.
So I assume John Noble Course senior is still alive but bankrupt and anything he has inherited from his sons goes straight to his creditors.
His wife Helen dies in March 1886 and it would seem he remarries.

Marriage cert ref:
Sep qtr 1891 Brighton 2b 444 John Noble Course to either Alma Cresswell or Emma Furner.

There are no Alma Course in 1901 census but there is an Emma Course age 64 born Essex widowed living in Hornsey,(Stoke Newington) Middlesex, with her daughter, son in law and grandson.
So it looks likely that John Noble Course died between 1891 & 1901.

Search of FreeBMD has no death cert.

Well to do family. Educated at Ladies College Cheltenham. She was very musical, won several silver & bronze medals for singing & violin at Royal Academy of Music. Her parents used to holiday at Boston Spa in Yorkshire. She met plenty of middle aged suitors. Tom was not approved of, being from the North and coal industry.

Witnesses: S M Smythson & Mary A Carr.

The following is written by Avril, her daughter:
Of course I recorded the record of my mother's success. Mind you although we had her grand piano taking up a disproportionate amount of space in the sitting room she never played it despite having mentioned that she and her father played duets. Never offered to play with me which might have been good..
She did not sing popular songs like everyone else from the radio and her "Church" voice was awfully artificial. Only once do I remember her having a couple of people in to play the violin. Can't have been much of a success and I never saw the violin - no places to hide in our house. She claimed my father did not like music but he was out all day. My brother suggested she buy a gramophone when they went electric which happened but she had no idea what records to get so that was not used. I simply think she was not very musical and only did it to please her parents. It was my father who encouraged my efforts on the piano despite dismal reports from the teacher.

Marriage in Parish Record of St Mary, Newington, Surrey (Ancestry):
19 April 1852 by Banns (read 4 April, 11 April & 18 April 1852- he's given as a bachelor)
Horatio Inglis Parnell, of full age, Widower, Gent of Walworth Terrace to
Louisa Davis, of full age, Spinster, of Walworth Terrace,
Fathers' names: Samuel Parnell, Gent & Thomas Davis, Gent.
Witnesses: Wm Williams & Emma Davis.

1861 census age 55, Surveyor born Kingston, Surrey, with wife Louisa 30 born Paddington, Middlesex and children Arthur H 8, Douglas I 7, Edith L 5, Horace F 3, Ralph A 1. (Arthuir born Vauxhall all rest born Hammersmith) living at 5 Poultons Terrace Court, Chelsea (Hammersmith).
1871 census aged 66, Auctioneer born Kingston u Thames, with wife Louisa 38 born Marylebone and children Arthur H 18 born Pimlico, Douglas I 16 born Hammersmith, Edith L 15 born Hammersmith, Horace F 13 born Hammersmith, Ralph A 11 born Chelsea, Leonard E 8 born Chelsea, Edgar G 5 born Battersea and Alfred T 8 months born Battersea living at 13 Simpson Street, Battersea.

He appears to have carried on in the same line of business as his father, and some of his brothers, as an agent and auctioneer, but was made bankrupt several times; in 1829 while trading from Kingston upon Thames and 5 Wellington Street, Strand, with his brother Samuel James Parnell, again in 1831 under his own name at 5 Wellington Street, Strand & No 28 Frith Street, Soho, and in 1862 while living at Paulton Terrace, Kings Road, Chelsea. His brother Samuel, a surveyor & auctioneer, was also declared bankrupt in 1833.
It looks like Horatio couldn't pay his debts and the London Gazette refers to identicle Bankrupcy hearings of the 'Prisoner' scheduled for 7 Feb 1831, 20 Mar 1832 & 16 Nov 1832; which makes it possible that he spent most of 1831 & 1832 in Debtor's Prison. If the debts could be settled the minimum time spent in prison was 6 weeks, it looks like he spent a bit longer.

Adverts placed for letting properties he was acting as agent for, appeared in The Times 15 Sep 1827 & 31 Mar 1828, in The Morning Chronicle 4 Sep 1827, 9 Dec 1827 & 4 Jun 1828, and in the Morning Post 20 Aug 1827, 22 Aug 1827, 16 Oct 1827, 12 Mar 1828, 15 May 1828, 3 Jul 1828 & 6 Aug 1828; all giving his business address as 5 Wellington Street, Strand.

Descendent Matt Parnell tells us that:
"Horatio and Louisa departed England for Australia aboard the ship 'Light Brigade' in November 1871. They arrived in what is now the city of Rockhampton on the 28th of February 1872. Horatio died only a few months later in May of Dissentry. Leaving his widow and children to set up home in St Lawrence in Queensland."
They had eight children when they set off, the youngest under 2 yrs old.

Frances Ann Parnell (England & Wales Visitation Vols I, III-XIV):
While searching for him on Ancestry there is a reference to a «b»Frances Ann Parnell «/b»(wife of Arthur Howe Walter of Greenhithe, Kent, mother to Lucy Esther Walter born 1875) «b»daughter «/b»of Horatio Parnell.
Found her marriage ref(Sep qtr 1868 Dartford 2a 540).
1911 census age 68 born Gower Street, married 43 yrs 6 children, 5 still living, staying with recently widowed son Douglas Temple Walter and grandson in Hendon.
1901 census age 58 born St Pancras, with husband & children.
1891 census age 47 born Bloomsbury with husband & children.
1881 census age 37 born London with husband & children.
1871 census age 28 born Gower St, London with husband & children.
1861 census Frances A Parnell age 18 born Gower Street, Middlx, 'sister in law' in the house of Herbert Robinson 56 wine merchant born Milton Yorkshire and his wife Ellen M Robinson 39 born Everton, Lancs, all at Swancombe, Kent.
Found marriage of Herbert Robinson to Ellen Mary Stiles (Mar qtr 1844 St Pancras 1 257)
1851 census, can't find Frances, but found Herbert 41 wine merchant born Malton Yorks & Ellen 20 born Liverpool, Lancs.
Can not find a birth cert for Frances Ann Parnell or Frances Ann Stiles,1842-1844.
1841 census is iinteresting as it has the following all in the same house in Gower Street, London.
Ann Stiles 40 (42 underneath) Boarding House Keeper born Wales
Ellen Stiles 20 born Wales
(Other guests Mary Jones 35 Ind born Wales, Jane Montague 35 Ind not born Middlesex, Alphia Montague 35 Barrister, William Ayton 55 Ind)
Herbert Robinson 30 (32 underneath) Merchant not born Middlesex
Henry Parnell 35 Appraiser not born Middlesex.
Plus 3 servants.
What if Henry Parnell is actually Horatio Parnell (correct age & occupation) and he has a daughter, Frances Ann, with Ann Stiles around 1843 in Gower Street (correct birth location according to Frances). Did he marry her? or was he still married? It would have been after the bankruptcy of 1830's, may be his wife Alice had left him or died. Is Horatio going under the name of Henry and that's why we can't find him in censuses.
Can not find Horatio Parnell, Ann Stiles or Frances Ann Parnell/Stiles in 1851 census.
BUT have found (originally thought this might be his brother Henry Erasamus Parnell):
Romney Terrace No 13, Greenwich,
Henry Parnell 45 Surveyor born Kingston, Suurey
Ann Parnell 43 Surveyors Wife born Pembrokeshire, Wales,
with 2 Ind Lodgers and a servant.

May be Frances' &/or Ellen's marriage cert would shed some light.

Ellen Mary Stiles full age spinster of St Pancras daughter of Samuel Stiles deceased to
Herbert Robinson full age bachelor Merchant of St Giles in the Fields son of William Robinson deceased
Witnesses Julia Stiles (her sister) and Henry Parnell.
Everyone signs their name, including Henry Parnell.
The signature is very, very similar to how Horatio has signed his name on his marriages, the 'Parnell' is quite distinctive, though he has written Henry instead of Horatio, but he has still put a dot over the end of Henry!!!!!!!.

Yes, I do think he went off with Ann Stiles & had Frances Ann Parnell.
What happened to Anne after 1851, I do not know, as he remarried in 1852. He seems rather good at losing wives!

An 'Aunt Matilda Hards' is mentioned in the Will of Helen Jane Smythson and also a Gabriel Hards is one of the witnesses to William Benjamin Smythson's marriage in 1885. Could Sarah Matilda Salway have married a Gabriel Hards?

nb. Basing Place is where Gabriel & Sarah Matilda's daughters were born & died in 1842-44, could 'Mary Sallways' be Matty Sallway. They had already had a 'marriage' in Paris, but still going by her maiden name, so may be it wasn't actually legal? Bigamous?

1867 Daughter Blanches birth cert shows occupation Comedian, living at King William Street, Blackburn.

1869 Son Henry's wedding certificate shows him as an actor.

A letter in 1995 by a descendent Joan talks about a great slump in Manchester, bringing the family to the East of London. The Lancashire cotton famine (1861 - 1865) was a depression in the textile industry in northwest England, brought about by the American Civil War. After the worst, he returns to Blackburn.

Another reason he came south again could be that he got into a partnership with a declared bankrupt, Melville Hin in the managership of the Park Theatre, Liverpool, Lancs. He too was asked to declare his assetts before the judge. All in the London Gazette (Issue 21887 p1931, 27 May 1857) details given as 'Montague Portius Smythson at present and for two weeks now past residing at 74 Finch Street, for ten months immediately previous thereto residing Grey Street, Toxteth Park, and for six weeks immediately previous thereto in Dexter street, Toxteth Park, all in the borough of Liverpool county of Lancaster'.

Montague Smythson, reference in a book ' Pen and Pencil Pictures of Old Bradford' about eminent Victorians in Bradford. Found on the internet via Genuki

The book doesn't tell us a lot about Montague -
page 143 -
"Mr. Mosley found it desirable to introduce new actors occasionally. In 1850, Mr. Montague Smythson succeeded Mr. Henry Loraine in the leading roles, and a very painstaking and competent actor he proved himself to be."

page 144-
Most of these pages are about another actor Mr. J.D. Stoyle -
The book quotes a letter this actor wrote -
"I was very young when I first became a member of the Bradford Circuit as it was then called, and was proud of my position as first low comedian in a company among which are such artists as Lysander Thompson, Montague Smythson, William Belford........... and other inimitable performers who made up one of the best companies then in the provinces . . . . . ."

The Era (National Newspaper Archive):
Lots of Adverts, reviews etc from 1840's to 1870's. A selection on file.
He was considered a great tragic actor at his peak in the 1850 & 60's, got great reviews, followed in his father's footsteps (more successfully as an actor), his wife Amelia appeared with him often and they seem to have had a productive, fairly successful, if disruptive, life together and with their children. Acted all over the country but had a special relationship with the industrial north "Bradford Circuit".

So sad his second marriage failed.

He spent the last (at least) 10 years of his life in the Cheshire County Asylum as a lunatic.

Death cert ref:
Clarence Horatio Smythson
born 20 Jul 1893 died Mar Qtr 1973 Enfield 5b 511

WW1 soldier records on Ancestry:
Clarence Horatio Smythson joined the Territorial Army 6th London Brigade RFA in London 13 Nov 1911 but leaves 28 Feb 1913 (reason-leaving the county). He gives his home address as 38 Craster Road, Brixton Hill and his occupation as Estate Agents Clerk (all ties up with 1911 census). Reg. No 866.
28 Dec 1914 Clarence Horatio Smythson joins up again this time giving his home address as 57 Elswick Road, Newcastle on Tyne and quoting his previous service in the 6th London Brigade RFA, however he gives his father's name as George H Smythson of 57 Elswick Road,( George H Smythson was his grandfather's name-who was dead by 1914 anyway). Reg no 890 then 465460 RE- electrical engineers.
He was a cinamatic operator on joining up, trained as an electrician in Army and ended at rank of Sgt.

I think the whole family left London in 1913 went to Newcastle and for some reason Clarence & Constance lived under their stage names of George & Louisa Smythson. They appear in electoral roll for London until 1913 when they disappear until 1928.

Medal Rolls Index Card & actual Roll for British & War Medal have the note that his medals were returned to War Office.

There is also a soldiers record on ancestry for a Pte George Smythson, no 5688, born 1890 Marylebone, who was attested to the reserve for 6 yrs from 11 Feb 1909 in Kings Shropshire L I, was mobilised 13 Aug 1914 fought in France with BEF and Salonika with MEF repatriated with diahorea (dissentry) in Feb 1916, then discharged in early1916 KR Para 392 (xxi) - the termination of his engagement . Next of kin details are for a father Henry Smythson mother Bessie Smythson, older brothers Harry, Ernest & Mark at 32 Lisson Street, Marylebone. It does not mention that he was KIA, in fact nothing after his 'discharge' in 1916.
This must be the same man, it appears he recovered, rejoined the army (or never really left in that he was reattested into war service ?) and was killed near Ypres in 1917.

In 1911 he was with his mother at 15 Salisbury Street, Marylebone.
Looked at A-Z and Salisbury Street is next to Lisson Grove and his uncle Marcus Jackson Smythson was living in Devonshire St, Lisson Grove.
