  • Notes 



    • Alfred Ingilby GARNETT, second son of the Reverend William GARNETT and Elizabeth Sophia BISHTON, was the brother of William Bishton GARNETT-BOTFIELD. He was 6 years younger than his brother, being born in 1822 at Nantwich.

      Alfred Ingilby GARNETT became a Captain in the 8th King's Regiment [of Foot] and served in India, where he acquired (according to George Garnett) a reputation as "a good tiger shot" but was at one time badly mauled by a panther. His statement of service in the Army shows that he entered the service in the rank of ensign in the 8th Regiment on May 13, 1842 at age 20, was promoted to the rank of Lieutenant on July 4, 1845 and to Captain on February 21, 1851. He served in the East Indies from August 3, 1846 to September 27, 1853. He embarked for Europe on September 28, 1853.
      On August 22, 1856 he was exchanged to the 38th Regiment of Foot.

      George Garnett in his family history written in 1910, says that Alfred Ingilby was known by the nickname "Old Alf"---a man "greatly to be liked, but not much to be admired, because he spent all his money (perhaps 10,000-pounds), and for some portion of his life was supported by his brother the Rev. William Bishton GARNETT-BOTFIELD".

      From his brother, he rented Haughton Hall (or a portion of it) for 60-pounds a year, where in 1861 he was living along with Captain Charles Hugh KEY (previously Captain of Dragoons, aged 44), Key's wife Catherine (age 30), and their nephew Edward Holloway (age 5). The Hall was also occupied by six house servants, according to the 1861 Census.

      Captain Key died the following year (May 3, 1862).

      Alfred Ingilby must have married Key's widow Catherine [formerly HOLLOWAY] in about 1863 or 1864.

      Their first daughter, Fanny Blanche was born in 1865. They had in all six children, the five after Fanny Blanche being: Jane Sophia (b. 1866); Catherine Lucy (b. 1868); Alfred Egerton (b. 1869); George William (b. 1870); and John Charles Ingilby (b. 1873).

      Alfred's mind became deranged in later years and he was confined to an asylum for a short time. But he died at Haughton Hall on February 5, 1889.

      Soon after Alfred's death, his brother W. B. GARNETT-BOTFIELD, who was the actual owner of the Haughton Hall Estate, sold it to Ralph Brocklebank, Esq., who became lord of the Manor and principal landowner of the property.

      Haughton Hall had been in the Garnett family since Thomas GARNETT purchased it from the Comberback family in about 1786, but Alfred Ingilby was the only GARNETT to have actually occupied it as his own residence.

      George Garnett recounts in his family history that Alfred Ingilby always treated him "with great kindness", as did his wife Catherine, who was the widow of Captain Charles Hugh Key. Catherine was described by George as being "a beautiful woman with pleasing manner, who retained her beauty late in life". She died on April 21, 1892 at age 60 at Alpraham, and was buried at Bunbury on April 27, 1892.

      Nothing is known about what became of Catherine or the children upon the death of Alfred Ingilby GARNETT. We know only that their daughter Fanny Blanche GARNETT (born in 1865) married Charles Harrison SMITH at Bunbury Church on September 25, 1894 at age 29 years [from the Bunbury Church register].

      Alfred Ingilby GARNETT, Catherine [Holloway] GARNETT and Captain Charles Hugh KEY were all buried together in a railed altar-tomb located near that of the Aldersey family in the Bunbury Church cemetery.
