  • Notes 



    • John Jasper GARNETT II was the youngest son of John Jasper GARNETT and Elizabeth CRAVEN. As a young man he was always of delicate health, but fortunately was the one child in his family to live long enough to bear off-spring.

      He married Ann ACTON [q.v. #17], daughter of James ACTON, a farmer of Wardle Hall estate and son of Thomas ACTON. This family is related to the Acton family of Alderleigh---one of the most illustrious families in English history and one that traces its ancestry back to Saxon times.

      John Jasper Garnett farmed successfully at Stoke Hall estate (inherited through his mother Elizabeth Craven) for seven years. He gave up farming because his wife Ann Acton became ill. The family went to live in one of the "pretty little houses in Welsh Row", Nantwich, on the right hand side of the street going to Chester. The house was raised above the road and had grass in front. Ann Acton died there of consumption on November 6, 1848 at the age of only 30-years. She was buried November 14, 1848 at Acton.

      After the premature death of his wife, John Jasper and the three children (Richard Craven, Elizabeth Ann, and George) lived for a while with John Jasper's mother (Elizabeth Craven) at Sweetbriar Hall on Hospital Street, Nantwich. Elizabeth Craven Garnett died there May 12, 1851 at age 73 of paralysis and was buried at Acton on May 20th.

      After Elizabeth Garnett's death, John Jasper took his three children to live for a while in Madeira, Spain. His son, George Garnett later recounts in his family history that they travelled to Madeira in a Brig call the Comet Captive Earth and that the voyage took 17-days.

      While in Spain, the children had a governess, a Miss Major, who died in Madeira. Their aunts, Mary Richardson and Ann Kent, sent out a new governess---Miss Mary Elizabeth Pankhurst who came from Wynbunbury.

      This Miss Pankhurst was about 24-years of age at the time and John Jasper Garnett was about 35. Apparently they fell in love but did not marry. George Garnett's journal relates that this Miss Pankhurst was a "regular nuisance" to the three children.

      John Jasper Garnett and his three children returned from Madeira around the year 1855 and for about a year rented a house in the Welsh Row on the same side of the street as the Wilbraham Arms but nearer to Chester. Aunt Mary Richardson died about this time, and so the family went to live at Stoke cottage---a smaller house on the Stoke Manor estate, which John Jasper enlarged to accommodate the family.

      Around the year 1860, the Nantwich volunteer regiment was formed, and John Jasper became a lieutenant, later becoming captain of the regiment---a post which he held until his death in 1870.

      John Jasper died on June 30, 1870 from a broken blood vessel in his lung. The day before his death he had driven out to John Richardson's house (The New Bell outside Nantwich), and had lunch there.

      At about four o'clock in the afternoon, he was taken ill and died without warning the following day at 5:15 in the afternoon.

      John Jasper Garnett is buried in the Garnett family vault in Acton churchyard near Nantwich along with his great-grandfather Samuel Garnett (1713-1777), Samuel Garnett's wife Ann Salmon (1714-1791), his grandfather George Garnett (1734-1814), his grandmother Ann Sanders (1731-1783).

      The will of John Jasper Garnett of Stoke cottage was proved at the Principal Probate Registry, London on October 10, 1870. His effects amounted to less than 2,000 pounds.

      In 1910, John Jasper's three children (George, Richard Craven, and Elizabeth Ann Butler) put up a brass plate to his memory in Acton Church. The inscription reads: "In memory of John Jasper Garnett of Stoke in this Parish. Died 30th June, 1870."

      Of the children of John Jasper Garnett, the following is known:

      Richard Craven Garnett (1843-1926) [q.v. #8] married firstly Charlotte Isabel LEACH and had eleven children---one of whom (Hubert Garnett, q.v. #4) was the grandfather of the author of this biography. He married secondly Lucy Bryans (no children from this marriage).

      Elizabeth Ann Garnett (1844-1910) married John Bell BUTLER of Farringdon, Berkshire, and had three children: Margaret; William Bernard; and Geoffrey.

      George Garnett (1845-1924) married Mary Eleanor CURWEN and had two daughters, Mary and Frances.
