  • Notes 



    • John Jasper GARNETT I was the ninth and last child of George GARNETT and Ann SANDERS, and was probably born in the year 1774. He was christened at Nantwich church on January 17, 1775.

      John Jasper Garnett married Elizabeth CRAVEN, one of the three heiresses of the Stoke Hall estate, which had been purchased by Elizabeth's father, Richard Craven in 1781 from Roger Wilbraham. John Jasper and Elizabeth Garnett had eight children, some of whom survived into adulthood---but with the exception of their son, John Jasper Garnett II, all of their other children died without leaving off-spring.

      John Jasper Garnett lived in a large, somewhat modern house in the Welsh Row, Nantwich. The house had steps up to the front door and was nearly opposite to the Queen's Head.

      He was a lieutenant in the Nantwich volunteer regiment, a treasurer of the Nantwich Bible Society in 1824, and along with two of his relations (John Richardson and William Acton) was elected a Trustee of Wright's Charity in 1817.

      John Jasper Garnett started a bank in partnership with Mr. Charles Broughton the brother of Sir John Broughton of Doddington, and with another man by the name of Sprout. The bank opened on Saturday, November 12, 1808 in premises next to the Griffin Inn in Nantwich.

      The bank stayed in operation for some eighteen years, but was forced to close on February 13, 1826. The story goes that Charles Broughton had an argument with his brother, Sir John Broughton, and when the rent was due on the bank, Sir John refused to accept the Broughton- Garnett bank notes---thereby causing a run on the deposits, and bringing about the bank's closure.

      Following the crash of the banking venture, John Jasper took his family to live in Torrington Square, London where he started another business. But a fire put him out of business a second time.

      John Jasper Garnett died at The Lodge in Nantwich on June 6, 1840 at the age of 65 years. Attending physician at his death was Doctor John Richardson, his brother-in-law. He was buried in the Garnett family tomb at Acton church cemetery near Nantwich.

      His wife, Elizabeth (Craven) Garnett continued to live in Nantwich, and died at the age of 73-years on May 12, 1851 at the Garnett residence on Hospital Street. Cause of death was indicated as paralysis.

      All of the family of John Jasper Garnett died of consumption or other diseases of a respiratory nature. Charlotte Frances Garnett died in July, 1838 of a broken blood vessel in the lungs (possibly brought on by tuberculosis).

      George Garnett, the first son born to John Jasper in 1806, died of pleurisy at the Stoke Hall estate in July, 1845.

      John Jasper Garnett II (1816-1870), was also not of a strong physical constitution, but did live to the age of 54 years and fathered three surviving children as well as possibly two others who are believed to have died in infancy. John Jasper Garnett's surviving children were: The Reverend Richard Craven Garnett (1843-1926) ]; Elizabeth Ann Butler (1844-1910); and George Garnett (1845-1924).
