  • Notes 



    • Richard Craven GARNETT, Clerk in Holy Orders for more than 49 years, was born at 5:15 pm on February 18, 1843---the first child of John Jasper GARNETT [q.v. #16] and Ann ACTON [q.v. #17].

      At the time of Richard Craven Garnett's birth, his father John Jasper was farming the estate at Stoke Hall Manor, which had been inherited by John Jasper's mother, Elizabeth Craven Garnett [q.v. #33] from her father Richard Craven upon his death in 1804.

      Richard's sister Elizabeth Ann ("Lizzie") was born in 1844, followed closely by his brother George in 1845.

      Just three years later, their mother Ann (Acton) Garnett died of consumption on November 6, 1848 at the age of only 30 years. Richard was only 5 years old at the time.

      Following the death of his wife Ann, John Jasper took the three young children to live for a while with their grandmother Elizabeth Craven Garnett at Sweetbriar Hall on Hospital Street, Nantwich. A governess, Sarah Charlton was retained to look after the children.

      In 1851, grandmother Elizabeth also died (age 73) and afterwards John Jasper and the children went to live in Madeira, Spain.

      Richard's bother George later recounts in his family journal that they travelled to Spain on a brig called Comet Captive Earth and the voyage took 17 days.

      The children's governess, Miss Major, died in Madeira and was replaced by a new one sent out from England---Mary Elizabeth Pankhurst, who became a "regular nuisance" to the children as well as a paramour to both John Jasper Garnett and later to the children's cousin, John Edward Richardson (from whom she swindled large sums of money and property).

      Around 1855, the family returned from Spain and rented a house in the Welsh Row, Nantwich. Their great aunt, Ann Kent also died at this point and so John Jasper and the family took over a small farm house on the Stoke property, called Stoke Bank.

      Richard was sent off for tutoring at Mr. Grosvenor's boarding school. He went on to study at Trinity College, Cambridge where he received a B.A. in 1866 and and M.A. in 1869.

      Upon graduation, Richard Craven Garnett entered the ministry, first as a curate of Leck in Lancashire, then at Mansfield- Woodhouse, Nottinghamshire. He was ordained Deacon in 1867 and Priest at Manchester Cathedral in 1869.

      On July 20, 1871, the Reverend Richard C. Garnett married Charlotte Isabel LEACH, daughter of Thomas LEACH of Thornton in Lonsdale. The same year, he was made curate of Calveley-under-Bunbury where he and his wife resided until 1873. At Bunbury their first two children were born---Ann Craven Garnett on May 3, 1872, and John Jasper on May 2, 1873.

      From 1873 to 1889, Reverend Garnett was Rector of Delamere, and it was there that Kate (August 11, 1874), Marion (October 2, 1875) and Craven (August 5, 1877) were born.

      While at Delamere the family also suffered a heartbreaking tragedy when the two oldest of their children, Ann (age 7) and John Jasper (age 6) both died within weeks of eachother in June 1879 from diphtheria. A stained glass window in Delamere Church commemorates the tragic death of these two children.

      Between March, 1880 and November, 1888 the remaining six Garnett children came into the world in quick succession, all at Delamere: George Edmund on March 12, 1880; Hubert on November 28, 1881, Charlotte Octavia on January 29, 1883; Acton on August 22, 1884; Ruth on April 11, 1886; and Isabel on November 28, 1888.

      In 1889, Reverend Garnett was appointed Vicar of Settle in North Yorkshire, a position he held until 1901. It was at Settle that the children grew up, went to school, made friends and decided their future vocations in life.

      And it was also at Settle that Garnett's wife Charlotte died on April 6, 1893 at the young age of 43. Cause of death was recorded as influenza, pneumonia and acute rheumatic endocarditis. She was buried in the churchyard at Settle.

      A few years after the death of his first wife, Reverend Garnett met Lucy BRYANS [q.v. #9-2], daughter of William Bryans a fellow Church of England clergyman. They were married at the Parish Church of Eltham in the county of London on February 1, 1900.

      Lucy, age 37 at the time of the marriage was 20 years younger than the groom.

      Reverend Richard Craven Garnett was Rector of St. Michael's Church at Salwarpe, Droitwich from 1901 to 1916.

      When he retired from that post in October, 1916 at the age of 73, he was presented with a handsome Sheraton sideboard enscribed with a brass plate bearing the following inscription:

      "Presented to the Rev. R.C. Garnett, M.A., by the people of Salwarpe, on his leaving after 15 years ministry in the parish, October 7, 1916."

      The presentation ceremony was written up in the Berrows Worchester Journal on October 11, 1916. Mrs. Lucy Garnett was presented with a silver coffee pot engraved on one side with her initials "L.G." Miss Kate Garnett was presented with a suitcase and Miss Marion Garnett (in appreciation for her efficient work with the choir) was given a case of fish eaters and carvers.

      The Reverend Garnett lived another ten years in retirement, succuming on March 3, 1926 after an attack of Haut Mal and Coma. He died at The Hayes, Park Road, Chandlers Ford, Winchester, County of Southhampton. His son Craven Garnett, living at East Mead Avenue, Greenford, Middlesex, was listed as informant on the death certificate.

      Ann Craven Garnett and John Jasper Garnett died at the ages of 7 and 6 respectively as a result of a diptheria outbreak in June, 1879.

      Kate Garnett died unmarried at New Baskerville, Shubbery, Worchester on about November 10, 1943 at age 69.

Craven Garnett was a civil engineer and was living in Greenford, Middlesex at the time of his father's death in 1926. He died on October 26, 1955 at age 78 in Settle, Yorkshire of a cerebral haemorrhage, and his wife Winifred Marion Garnett died just a few weeks later on December 12, 1955.
