John Andrew was but thirty-nine when he died. He had three older sisters - I think they kept a shop in Bodmin (their father was a wool stapler). Were the parents already dead? I suppose (half-) brother-in-law William (Snow) Goodridge, being prosperous and childless, married to a French woman née Vallet, tante Elise, was a normal choice of guardian for John Andrew's young family and, of course, he would have expected to outlive his own parents and elder sisters. But Grannie Hawke, stiffly English, painfully reserved, puzzles me in never going home if her parents were alive.

She had a full brother, Robert and, said Uncle Maurice, there was "another, never mentioned"… The mind boggles… What dark deeds…? But we have fading daguerotypes of great-granma Goodridge - heavy jowled and unattractive - and with them photos of a sturdy, bulge-face country brat. Was that a loved one she lost and, silent in grief like her daughter, never ever mentioned?

107 The grey haired portrait, painted about 1830, is of William.

Ella Cath writes:

He lived in Liverpool - was trying to write a dictionary, had 6 children of whom there seems to be no trace and had to be helped financially by his brother John - there's quite a likeness to Aunts Susie and Edie.

His will, written on his deathbed reads:

"My Boys

"Through the long course of a life more marked by levity than prudence, I have little now to leave you by my blessing and my prayers for your success in the world and enjoin you above all things to love one another and as long as your Mother lives to do your duty by her.

"To Henry - Uncle's portrait

"To Mother - my spectacles
- lock of hair
- Uncle's lock of hair
- my portrait of George

"A great writer says 'On peut ne laisser que deux choses a ses enfants: l'Education et le bon example'.

"The first you have had as well as circumstances would permit and (I flatter myself) the latter.

"I trust you make good use of them."

At the Court House at Liverpool, in the County of Lancaster, on the 8th day of April 1830, at the Hour of Ten in the Forenoon precisely.
...
William Cath, formerly of Saint Mary Axe, carrying on business in Nicholas-Lane, both in the City of London, afterwards of West-Square, in the Parish of Lambeth, afterwards of Webbet-Street, Waterloo-Road, both in the County of Surrey, carrying on business in Abchurch-Lane, in the City of London aforesaid, Commission Agent, afterwards of No. 25, Bradd-Street, Waterloo-Road aforesaid, out of business, afterwards of No. 40, Frederick-Street, afterwards of Colguit-Street, afterwards of Kent-street, all in Liverpool, afterwards of Park-Road, and late of Dixton-Street, both in Toxteth-Park, near Liverpool aforesaid, all in the County of Lancaster, Agent, Book-keeper, and Packing-Case-Maker.

108 The odd thing that I found recently is as follows. Francis Kain was married to Ruth Cook, and they had five known children, four of whom survived to adulthood - their names were Thomas, Joseph, Francis, Charlotte and Charles, born between about 1764 and 1778. Ruth died in 1792 at Shoreditch aged 56.

I know it is not conclusive proof but my cousin owns a miniature painting, with Francis Kain's date of death and age written on the back, this having been passed down through the family. It is on this basis that I believe Henry Kain, my great x 3 grandfather, is the son of Francis Kain. But who was his mother?

In 1796, Francis Kain and Ursula Newton (nee Wagstaffe) were witnesses at the marriage of Francis Kain jnr and Mary Allen. In 1809, Francis Kain and Ursula marry. She was born in Derby in 1755 and so was too old to have had two sons, Henry and Richard, as a result of this marriage, but in her will she refers to her sons, Henry and Richard Kain. It is perfectly possible that they were her sons from her earlier marriage to John Newton and they chose to adopt their step father's name, pehaps for some reason relating to inheritance.

But, on the other hand, an Ursula Wagstaff was baptised at Christ Church, Newgate in 1793, parents Francis and Ursula (Pallot's Baptisms). An Ursula Kain, infant, was buried 19 May 1793 at St Mary's Hendon. Richard Wagstaffe was baptised in Christ Church in 1791 with the same parents. This date ties in with the age of Richard Kain at death in 1827 of 35. I have yet to find a birth for Henry. I am wondering if Francis and Ursula were in a relationship at least from the 1790s, unable to marry because John Newton was still alive.

110 The Royal Hussars (Prince of Wales's Own) were formed by the amalgamation of the 10th Royal Hussars (PWO) and the 11th Hussars (PAO - Prince Albert's Own) on 25 October 1969. The original Regiments were raised in 1715 as Light Dragoons at the time of the Jacobite rebellion and afterwards served in the Seven Years War. The Tenth campaigned in the Peninsula War and both Regiments fought at Waterloo. The Eleventh saw action in Egypt in 1800 and also fought in the Peninsula where they were nicknamed the "Cherrypickers".
The Eleventh escorted Prince Albert from Dover for his marriage to Queen Victoria in 1840. They were honoured with the title of 'Prince Albert's Own' and privileged to wear the distinctive crimson trousers of the Prince's Coburg household. Both Regiments were in the Crimea, and the Eleventh took part in the famous charge of the Light Brigade at Balaclava [25 October 1854] where they gained one of the first Victoria Crosses to be awarded. The Tenth, now known as the "Shiners", were awarded two Victoria Crosses in the South African War. Both saw long service in India.

From Diana Burns 22 Oct 2011:
I have just read Mary Cath's will - I wonder what Henry did to upset her? I think it must tie in with the entry in the London Gazette 28 June 1831 page 1298 relating to the Court for the Relief of Insolvent Debtors, and Mary not wanting her money to go to Henry and hence to his creditors but to be the property of his wife alone. It may not even have been anything personal - she just wanted to ring-fence the cash.

114 When Gustave Girardot married Mary Wheeler he was working in Paris, he declared he could never live elsewhere, and would never touch the glove trade, which was then - with long white kid gloves de rigeur - a most flourishing Anglo French business. Within a month he had accepted a position as Morley's French representative in Grenoble and they moved to a large flat there where their daughters were born, Elise in 1873, Jenny in 1875. And there Elise died of meningitis in the December of her fifth year. Exactly thirty seven years later Mary wrote to her daughter Jenny, "I do know what you mean - the eyes do not cry but the heart cries all the time."
Under her crying heart she carried Henri, who was born in October 1878, and was never expected to live. Maurice arrived in July 1881 when they were out of town for the summer, and it was so hot the nurse immediately carried him into the garden. Mother's (Jenny's) earliest memories were of the summers away from the heat of Grenoble in a farmhouse in the mountains, where Henri fell into the piece d'eau, where rats were gigantic, thudding through the attics at night, and where the mountain storms were so spectacular and la mère Rose told them thunder was le bon Dieu qui joue aux boules. They loved the farmhouse holidaying but it came to an end when the family moved from Grenoble to La Tronche, seven kilometres out, and bought Les Ombrages from an Englishman, John Andrew Hawke, also with Morley's.
Mr Hawke moved his wife, three young sons and daughter up the mountain to Mont Fleuri. From the garden of Les Ombrages Jenny was later to focus binoculars on the garden at Mont Fleuri to spy out if John Hawke junior was at home.
Les Ombrages was a tall square house in a large garden of fine trees - John Hawke had planted an avenue running north south. Gustave Girardot added a line of chestnuts east west, grass was in the French manner, harvested by farmers; shrubberies, roses, la terrace, le potager, la poulailler - and the mountains: Champ Russe where the sun set, Casque de Nero...The words bring back a magic that I only tasted second hand and know as though it had been my home, my childhood. My Grannie created it, "with comeliness and kindness shone the whole house for they first were radiant in her soul", so said George Herbert of his mother and just so was it for Les Ombrages.
It was not, after all, a "little interior" that Gustave gave her. It was a beautiful home, and there they kept open house for all the English colony, which was considerable. Grenoble was prosperous and important in the business world. When I went over the leather factories in the 1920's they were half empty, gloves were out of fashion, and anyway the mountain chamois had not survived the demands of the days of my grandfathers. Late nineteenth century, everything flourished.
English Mary at La Tronche took on the church (Protestants say Le Temple) and the parish, as her heart, conscience, energy and ability decreed. At Elise's birth she was so new to France she "tu-toi-ed" the doctor, but by the time Elise's short life had ended she was lecturing Mesdames' good works guilds in fluent French. Nothing suggests that she was ever homesick for England. I believe she lifted up her eyes unto the Alps and adored. Certainly her children did. They adored her first and beyond her their mountains.
