liveth and believeth in
me shall never die
Believest thou this

also his wife
Jessie Anne Carpendale
Died March 19, 1923
Aged 79 years.
At Rest.

Notes: Alexander attended Blundell's school, in Tiverton, Devon, from 1845 until 1850. He emigrated to Australia in 1856, on the Lord Burleigh from London. His name ("Mr. Alex V. Carpendale") is found on the passenger list of the Lord Burleigh when it docked in Auckland on August 8 1856.

The photographs presumed to be of Alexander and Jessie are from the John Oxley Library of the State Library of Queensland. They are identified there only as "Mr. Carpendale c1870s" and "Mrs. Carpendale c1870s", but Alexander and Jessie are the only Carpendale family of which there is a record in Queensland at the time (for example, only this Carpendale family appears in any Queensland birth, marriage or death records between 1850 and 1900), so I have tentatively identified the photographs as being of Alexander and Jessie.

Obituary:

OBITUARY

VICE-ADMIRAL SIR C. D.
CARPENDALE

Controller of British Broadcasting
Company



   Vice-Admiral Sir Charles Douglas Carpendale, C.B., who died on Thursday at the age of 93, served in the Royal Navy from 1887 to 1923. Then from 1923 he became associated with broadcasting.
   Only a year previously leading British wireless manufacturers had combined to start the British Broadcasting Company with a regular service, and with about 20,000 licences. Carpendale became controller, and was directly concerned in the phenomenal growth of the new organization. He continued in office when the company's licence expired in December 1926, and the British Broadcasting Corporation was established to maintain the service as a national trust under Government control. Within 12 years of his introduction to broadcasting the number of licences had grown to seven million and the annual income of the B.B.C. to over £2M. The internal economy of the service owed a great deal to the ripe judgement, knowledge of men and affairs, and popular personality of its controller.
   Carpendale, like Sir John Reith, was a son of the manse. His father was the Rev. William Henry Carpendale. He was born on October 18, 1874, and entered Britannia as a naval cadet in January, 1887.
   After the war broke out he was appointed in command of H.M.S. Donegal. This cruiser was one of the West African squadron under Admiral de Robeck until November, 1914, when she was ordered to join the Grand Fleet, which she did in January, 1915, forming part of the Seventh Cruiser Squadron under Admiral A. W. Waymouth, based in Cromarty. In the following August Carpendale became flag captain to Admiral Sir Lewis Bayly at Queenstown, and subsequently commodore in Northern Ireland. He was made C.B. in 1918. After the Armistice he took command of the battleship Benbow, until 1921, in which year he was appointed an aide-de-camp to the King, until his promotion to rear-admiral on July 6, 1921.
   When Carpendale retired from the Navy in 1923 he came in contact with Mr. J. C. W. Reith of the B.B.C., who asked him to become his deputy with the title of controller, a post he held until his retirement in 1938, with latterly a change in title to Deputy Director General. It is recorded that Carpendale had understandable qualms about accepting service in an entirely unfamiliar field. He soon, however, showed his capacity for working with a dynamic managing director and an inexperienced and potentially temperamental staff. On one hand in 1929 he proved an understanding go-between for Sir John Reith in his difficulties with the then chairman of the B.B.C. Board of Governors. On the other he proved invaluable as a steadying factor, with common sense and his feet on the ground, in dealing with an enthusiastic and rapidly expanding staff. Throughout his service he was mainly concerned with administration, but his unofficial influence on programmes was salutarily that of an ordinary though privileged listener ; and in emergencies like the General Strike of 1926 he was always ready and welcome to lend a hand in the studio.
   Carpendale, in the circumstances of his office and the times, had to be boot-faced. In cricket terms he was the long stop both to Sir John Reith above him and to the often very wild bowling from below him. This led to the famous quarter-deck manner (doubtless natural to him), belied as often as not by an ultimate twinkle in his eye and dissolving in a most charming smile. The staff respected and progressively liked him and felt absolute confidence in his integrity, and the women staff adored him. He was well known to them through staff social activities in which he was untiring - dances, sports, swimming, and taking part in plays like Tilly of Bloomsbury.
   In March, 1925, he was elected first chairman of the newly formed Union Internationale de Radiophonie and he did most valuable work from the British as well as B.B.C. point of view in the following 15 years when despite the jealousies and strains of an international body he was reelected annually. His geniality and real friendliness and his wisdom in conference must certainly have contributed to the good will between the B.B.C. and German broadcasters which had its effect in the war years. Carpendale retired in June, 1938 four years after the normal retiring age. But the war saw him working at the Ministry of Information in liaison with the Air Ministry and the B.B.C.
   An expert skier, Carpendale was a winter sports enthusiast, and his recreations included riding, mountaineering, and other outdoor sports. He was created K.C.B. in the Birthday honours list in 1932. He married in 1907 Christina, eldest daughter of the late Mr. J. S. Strange, and had one son. His wife died in 1952.

In 1901, Charlotte is noted in her sister's obituary as living in Kingstown. Charlotte was the godmother of her great-niece, Kathleen Kilroy. In 1904 she received a bequest of £2500 from her aunt and godmother, Sophia (Carter) Cashel. Charlotte is mentioned in the will of her sister Elizabeth Shaw Carpendale who died on 3 February 1909 "I bequeath to each of my dear sisters Charlotte M E Carpendale and Catherine D Carpendale the sum of £200 each."

Birth: 23 December 1874, at Grantham Station, Queensland

Father: Alexander Victor Carpendale

Mother: Jessie Anne (Turner) Carpendale

Married: Pung-i "Jessie" Tonanik in 1905 in East Cape, Siberia, Russia.

Occupation: Fur Trapper and Trader (1914); Hudson Bay Company agent; Poultry Farmer (1951)

Death:
23 June 1951, in New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada, aged 77

Buried: New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada

Notes: Clarendon was an adventurer who left his home in Toowoomba, Australia in 1900 and participated in the Yukon gold rush. He found better fortune trading than prospecting, and landed up in East Cape (Cape Dezhnyov), Siberia where he worked as a fur trapper, trader and agent for the Hudson Bay Company. In his book, Arctic Trader, fellow Siberian trader Charles Madsen notes that "Charlie Carpenter" was an assistant at a trading post in East Cape for John Rosene's Northeast Siberian Trading Company in 1908. Madsen describes Carpendale as "a foot-loose old Australian ...  who had been attracted to Nome by the gold rush, but had had no luck" and later as "a garrulous old man". In a film shot in Siberia in 1914 by Fred Le Roy Granville entitled "Rescue of the Stefansson Arctic Expedition", a short scene occurs in which "Trader Carpendale displays White Fox skins". Clarendon married a local Chukchi woman, Pung-i Tonanik, and became a Russian citizen which had the added benefit of giving him full legal trading rights in contrast to the murky legal position of many of the American traders in Siberia. In 1921, the Hudson Bay Company extended its operations to eastern Siberia, and Clarendon became an agent for the company. The venture, coming at a time of revolutionary confusion and alternating control between Red and White forces, was not a success, and in 1924, Hudson Bay withdrew from Siberia. The extension of Bolshevik control to Eastern Siberia chafed on Carpendale, and in 1927, he escaped Communist rule with his family by crossing the Bering Strait in kayaks, landing in Alaska. They lived for a period in Nome, Alaska, then Seattle, Washington and eventually moved to Surrey, British Columbia. Canadian Immigration records their arrival in Vancouver, British Columbia on 28 November 1927.

Clarendon was a friend of the polar explorer Roald Amundsen, and adopted a child, Nita Amundsen who was a "ward" of Roald. The photograph of the Norwegian flag was sent to Clarendon from Roald Amundsen and is of the flag that Roald carried on his voyage through the North East Passage, and flown at both the (magnetic) North and South poles. In a dispatch from Amundsen reported in The Times in 1922, Carpendales' ability to supply Arctic ventures receives praise:

The Times, Saturday, Nov 11, 1922; pg. 9; Issue 43186; col D
Amundsen's Voyage.
In the following dispatch Captain Roald Amundsen describes his journey from Nome, through Bering Straits to Point Barrow, Alaska, whence he intends to attempt to fly across the Polar Basin. Owing to adverse weather conditions, the flight has been postponed till next summer.
(By Captain Roald Amundsen.)
WAINWRIGHT (ALASKA), Aug. 14.
We left Nome on Wednesday, June 28; the town gave us a hearty cheer on our departure.
Twenty-four hours later we dropped our anchors just outside Kengesko (East Cape), in Siberia. Ice covered a distance of about three miles from the shore out to sea. A team of dogs came rushing out over the ice, and within a short time our friend, Charlie Corpendale, was on board. The whole outfit which I had ordered with him last year was ready and it was an outfit, indeed ! The Maud Expedition is, in fact, fitted out with the very best to be had.
We subsequently made for Cape Naspenberg, in Kotzebue Sound...

Later documents (will etc.) have his name as Clarendon Charles Carpendale.

Notes:
Known as "Bessie". A nephew's son remembers her as "a kindly and wonderful person". She was never married.

This poem was written by Bessie in an album belonging to her cousin Henrietta Groome who visited Falkland in 1903. I have not been able to find any other attribution for the poem, so I assume it to be original.

A Fragment
Two streams came dancing from their mountain home,
Careless and glad, along the vale to roam.
And meeting 'neath the bending willow's shade
In company they passed the flowery glade.
Till rudely torn asunder, Parted, wide
By some harsh circumstance the streams divide
But seaward still they keep their shining way,
For there they shall mingle in immensity
To Parted Friends who must on earth no more
Shall find a meeting place when life is o'er

FRESHNEY—CARPENDALE.
An exceedingly interesting and pretty wedding eventuated at St. James' Church, Toowoomba, on 3rd December, when Miss Florence Lorraine Carpendale, third daughter of the late A. V. Carpendale, Grantham station, and Mrs. Carpendale, "Valima," Toowoomba, was married to Dr. Reginald Freshney, son of the late Mr. C. Freshney, Maryborough and Lincoln. The Rev. Teesdale Cockell officiated, and the service was fully choral.
The Church
  Was decorated by the girl friends of the bride, and was a mass of white bridal flowers arranged most artistically.
The Bride,
  Who is a handsome brunette, was given away by her brother-in-law, Mr. Alec McPhie, and she looked exceedingly well in a gown of ivory taffetas, the crossed bodice opening over a gilet of duchesse lace, and finished with handmade sprays and stems of silk rose buds, the Eton sleeves were frilled with kilted chiffon, the seams of her Puritan skirt were outlined with French knots, her hat was composed of mauve tulle deftly pleated in 1830 style, and was wreathed in Parma violets round crown and brim and finished with long tulle strings; her only ornaments were a pearl and diamond star and pearl neck slide, and sprigs of white heather sent by Mrs. C. Pyne and Mrs. Saltmarsh; she carried a shower bouquet of hothouse flowers.
The Bridesmaids.
  Two exceedingly pretty girls, Miss Clara Carpendale and Miss Girlie Margetts (the bride's cousin), were frocked in Victorian style. Their Romney hats of mauve straw had choux of pink ribbon under the brim, crowns swathed with pink ribbon and finished with bunches of pink moss roses. Their bouquets of carnations, roses and heather, tied with pink streamers were the gift of the bridegroom, as were also the gold bracelet and acorn drop, set with pink corals, worn by Miss Clara Carpendale, and the flexible gold pearl and turquoise bracelet worn by Miss Margetts. Mr. W. H. Fergusson acted as best man, and Mr. Crawford Donnelly, Westbrook Hall, as groomsman.
Mrs. Carpendale,
  Mother of the bride, wore black canvas voile, the jupon skirt bordered with silk and and guipure, long cream silk lace gilet with touches of vieux rose, puffed sleeves to gauntlets of black net and guipure. She carried a bouquet of deep pink roses.
Mrs. Alec McPhie
  Sister of the bride, wore a gown of white Indian silk, which set off her exquisite fairness of complexion and hair, the bodice had granny bretelles over the shoulders, crossing at back and front, opening over a vest of Mechlin lace, triple Victoria sleeves frilled at the elbow; full, gathered skirt, bordered and panelled with puffings to match the bretelles, smart green chiffon toque, wreathed in white gardenias. With her were her trio of pretty children—little Lyndale McPhie in white silk and valencienes and gathered silk bonnet fastened under the chin with strings; and Masters Victor and Hector McPhie, wearing white men-o'-war suits.
Mrs. Lionel Walker,
  Clayfield, aunt of thr bride, lovely gown of cream Swiss muslin over glace, full gathered skirt, finished at foot with large tucks and kilting of muslin, dainty bodice with shoulder drape of two tone Mimosa lace, pleated net vest finished with touches of mandarin, twine "Romney" hat in satin straw and tulle, large Tangerine rose and foliage, finished under brim with knot of black velvet ribbon.

Walker (Barcaldine).
The Reception
  Was held at "Colonsey," the residence of Mr. and Mrs. A. McPhie, the rooms being decorated with palms and exquisite flowers. Dainty refreshments were served throughout the after- noon and the many presents were displayed in the drawing-room, Dr. and Mrs. Freshney receiving their friends' congratulations in the wide entrance hall. The wedding trip will be to the South and New Zealand. The bride travelled in a becoming gown of blue Tokio silk sunray, pleated to a folded belt and ornamented with a darker shade of velvet, the puffed sleeves were finished with cream silk gauntlets, her hat of champagne straw in mushroom shape, had clusters of faded roses and foliage and champagne ribbons. The following firms executed orders for the wedding— Mrs. Janet Walker, the brides' wedding and travelling costumes, etc,; G. P. Merry, Toowoomba, bridesmaids' dresses; Finney, Isles and Co., wedding millinery. Eschenhagen supplied the wedding cake. The bouquets, which were much admired, were from Woldridge Bros., Toowoomba, and the catering was attended to by T. K. Lamb..

Birth: 1730/1

Married (1st): Elizabeth Wright on 30 April 1751, in St Mary, Newark, Nottinghamshire, England

Elizabeth died in 1751.

Married (2nd): Catherine Palfreyman on 25 February 1754, in Newark, Nottinghamshire, England

Feb. 25 George Carpendale, p. Newark, shoemaker, 23, wid. and Catherine Palfreyman, of same, 24, sp. at Newark.

A marriage record (transcribed at FreeReg, and listed in Nottinghamshire Parish Registers vol 4 p163 (Phillimore and Blagg, 1902)) exists of the marriage of Henry Carpendale and Catherine Palfreman on 25 February 1753 in St Mary, Newark, Nottinghamshire. It is likely that these two records refer to the same event - no parish record corresponding to the marriage licence is found, and no licence corresponds to this marriage (although it could have been by banns). Two data discrepancies exist - the year and the groom's first name. The marriage occurred less than two years after the conversion from Old Style dates to New Style dates, and my interpretation is that the central license record, which has the New Style equivalent, is likely correct while the parish record records the event using the Old Style year. This is validated by the fact that this marriage is listed after marriages occurring in December 1753. Regarding the groom's first name, I note that the four Carpendale baptisms in the parish after the marriage (Thomas, Elizabeth, Mary and Ann) both list George Carpendale as the father (mother not listed), then Catharine, George, Sarah and Rebecca are all shown as the children of George and Catherine. No children of any Henry Carpendale are found. For this reason I believe that the groom in this marriage was George Carpendale, and that Henry is a transcription error somewhere along the line.

Children: Occupation: Shoemaker

Notes: In May 1766, George bought property in Mill Gate, Newark, from Joseph and Elizabeth Pell for £100. The property is described as a "messuage or dwelling house with a stable, brewhouse and other appurtenances; and also of several houses near the said dwelling house, in the several tenures of Thomas Breedon and Mary Musson; all property is in Mill Gate, Newark"

  Harwood is the name of a small district in the uppermost part of the parish of Middleton-in-Teesdale, and lying at the south-western extremity of the county of Durham. It is not, strictly speaking, a part of Teesdale, but is rather a dale by itself, having its own steam or beck which is a tributary of the Tees, falling into that river about midway between its two great falls, Caldron Snout and High Force. The country around is by no means without attractions of its own. The two falls just mentioned are among the finest in England. Teesdale is well known as a most excellent field for botanists, while the Tees itself and its tributary streams abound with fish. Only a few years ago it was almost entirely shut out from the world, having no roads passable by carriage of any description. It is now, however, intersected by a most excellent road, constructed fourteen or fifteen years ago, which has already done much to change the character of the place. The population may be about 300, all of them working miners, and at the same time tenant-farmers under the Duke of Cleveland. They are a kind-hearted intelligent set of men, simple and primitive in their manners, though by no means as much as they were a few years back, when their intercourse with the rest of the world was so much more limited than it now is. They are situate at a distance of from eight to ten miles from their parish church, their resort to which, till the formation of the new road, was a work of great difficulty and fatigue, and thia, from the nature of their occupation, they were ill qualified to bear. All that they had to supply this deficiency of the means of grace till within the last forty years, was a very small chapel, about twenty-six feet long, and little more than half the breadth. A small pulpit stood by the door, which was in the middle of the south wall, and the seats were placed around the pulpit. In this humble edifice the Inhabitants of the Dale assembled for worship. They had no minister, for there was no endowment, and they were quite unable to support one themselves. Yet it did not occur to them to leave the church of their fathers. A schoolmaster was supported among them by their landlord, and on Sunday he read the prayers of the church, and a sermon from the works of some approved divine. Such was the state of things between forty and fifty years ago. At this time, a very singular man was the schoolmaster. His name was George Carpendale, a person of a very respectable family, a brother of his being a clergyman at Armagh, connected, it is believed, with the Cathedral there. In his early life, however, George had led a dissolute life, and had been impressed a a sailor. After being at sea for some years he was discharged as unfit for service, on account of his wounds. He took to a wandering life, and first came to these parts as a ballad-singer. He settled at first in Baldersdale, in the North Riding, where he remained a few years, teaching a school of his own. By and by Harwood school fell vacant, and he was appointed master. It appears that even at this point his follies had not entirely ceased, for a very short time after his appointment he collected together as much money as he could, and suddenly decamped, leaving a wife whom he had married in Baldersdale and an infant daughter to the care of the parish. Strangely enough, one of the tenants in the highest part of the dale had occasion soon after to go to London, and there one day to their mutual surprise, met Carpendale in the streets. On being reproached for his unfaithfulness, he enquired whether the situation was still vacant, and if so, whether he might return. He was told that no successor had been appointed, and was advised to try whether he could be reinstated. He consented to do so, and being restored to his place, continued ever after to conduct himself with great steadiness and propriety. This continued for some years, till Bishop Barrington being informed of the destitution of Harwood, and the steady attention of the schoolmaster to his duties, was induced to ordain him. The Earl of Darlington, to whom the whole of the little vale belonged, and who had a small shooting box there, allowed him £40 a year as schoolmaster and curate. Now, when it was to be served by an ordained minister, the little chapel was enlarged and altered. Everything, as may be supposed, was on a very small scale, for even now the chapel would only contain, when closely packed, about eighty grown up persons. Mr. Carpendale was very anxious to have it consecrated, and once believed himself to be very near attaining his wish, and it is said he expended £20 in making preparations to receive the Bishop and lodge him for the night, for he never supposed that his lordship could come and return the same day. There were serious obstacles, however, in the way, the chief of which was the want of a permanent endowment, and the scheme was dropped. Besides the stipend mentioned above, he had occasional assistance from his brother in Ireland, who after his ordination presented him with a gown. He had also during the last years of his life an allowance of £20 a year from the London Lead Company, in whose mines most of his flock were employed. At the time of his death, which took place about ten years ago, he was a widower, and had lived for some years alone in the school. He had contrived to save £200, and this sum he left in the hands of the three trustees, the Bishop, the Rector of Middleton, and the Churchwarden of Harwood, as the beginning of an endowment for a resident minister. A few years ago, a chapel was built three miles lower down, in the district known as the Forest of Teesdale—chiefly at the instance of the present Duke of Cleveland, the grandson of the Earl of Darlington above mentioned. His Grace built a parsonage beside the new chapel entirely at his own expense, and agreed to allow a sufficient sum annually to maintain a curate. The new chapel was intended not only to serve for the district of Forest, and the little adjoining valley of Ettersgill, containing together a population of 500 or 600, but also to supersede the old chapel of Harwood, which had fallen into a state of great decay. It has been found inexpedient, however, to give up the old chapel, and divine service is now maintained at both places by the minister of the new church. It is now proposed to put the chapel in thoroughly good repair, making at the same time such alterations as may be necessary in order to render it somewhat more ecclesiastical in its character.

CLERGY DECEASED.
April 13. Aged 73, the Rev. George Carpendale, of Harwood Chapel, in the parish of Middleton in Teesdale, having faithfully discharged his duties as schoolmaster and reader of the chapel since the year 1789, and with equal usefulness and propriety those of his sacred office since his ordination in the year 1808. His whole stipend, which he received from the Duke of Cleveland, for the performance of his ministerial duties, was 40 guineas a year. His realised property, amounting to 200l., he has left in the hands of the Bishop of the Diocese, the Rector of the parish, and Churchwarden of that part of the parish of Middleton in Teesdale, as trustees, to lay with it the foundation of an endowment for a perpetual successor to himself, that the inhabitants of that destitute part of the diocese may be constantly supplied from the Church with a resident minister, and provided with a burial ground, the distance of the burial-place of the parish, from the chapel in Harwood, being 10 miles. The name of George Carpendale, therefore, deserves to be had in perpetual remembrance, not only in the remote district in which his lot was cast, but as an example throughout the Church.

Buried: 20 April 1838, in Middleton-in-Teesdale, Durham, England

SIR EVERARD UPTON - LAW AND TRAVEL IN INDIA

Our Nairobi Correspondent telegraphs that Sir Everard Upton died at Nanyuki Farm on Saturday at the age of 65. He was a man of energetic and adventurous mould with cultivated tastes. He travelled extensively, delighted in sport, and was distinguished in the exercise of his profession, in which he rose to be Solicitor to the Government of India.
Thomas Everard Tichborne Upton was born to the late Thomas Everard Upton, J.P., of Ashburton, Canterbury, N.Z., in October, 1871. His grandfather was the Rev. Thomas Upton, of Moreton Say, Shropshire. After being at Christ College. Canterbury, N.Z., he joined the Law Society, London, and was admitted to the solicitors' roll in this country in 1897. Five years later he went out to Calcutta as a member of the old-established firm of Orr, Dignam, and Co., and was admitted to the roll of the High Court, Bengal. He was a member of the executive committee and trustee of the Victoria Memorial, Calcutta, from 1919 to 1924. His prominent place in "Ditcher" society was shown by his being president of the Bengal Club in 1920 and his stewardship of the Calcutta Turf Club from 1923. His holiday travels took him to Tibet and Sikkim as well as to all parts of India and Ceylon ; to Africa from the Cape to Cairo, Algeria and Tunis ; to Australia, Canada, and South America. He was a director of numerous companies concerned with Indian commercial and industrial development. He left Calcutta in 1924, but was recalled three years later to take up the appointment of Solicitor to the Government of India. He finally left India in 1932, after serving on the Council of State, the Upper House of the Central Legislature, and settled at Alresford, Hants.

Sir Everard, who was knighted in 1931, married, in 1906, Hazel Edith, daughter of Lieutenant-Colonel J. M. Carpendale of the 8th Bengal Lancers, and they had three sons and a daughter."

(article on the wedding of Hazel Carpendale and Thomas Upton)
Mr. Upton, supported by Mr. Given Wilson as best man arrived very punctually.
  The bride walking up the aisle on the arm of her father and preceded by the choir singing "the Voice that breathed o'er Eden," looked perfectly charming in a very simple white satin frock. The skirt was trimmed round the edge with three satin straps cut on the cross, continuing right up the front and giving a panel effect. The bodice had a net yoke and a berth of lovely lace fell over the full puffed sleeves, which were finished at the elbow wit ha strap of white satin matching the skirt. The white tulle veil was prettily arranged on the dark hair and caught up with orange blossom. She carried a pretty white bouquet. The two grown up bridesmaids, Miss Carpendale and Miss Dobson wore sweet frocks of white muslin, the bodice trimmed with cross-over braids of broderie Anglaise and frills of the same on the skirts With this they wore fancy straw hats trimmed with white chiffon and white flowers. They carried white bouquets, and wore charming brooches of brilliants of a fancy bow design with a sapphire centre, the gift of the bridegroom. The little bridesmaid Miss Toynbee enjoyed herself immensely and looked like a big doll, dressed in a short white silk frock with a white hat trimmed with pink La France roses. When the ceremony was over the bridal party repaired to the vestry, and "O! perfect Love" was sung by the choir and congregation. The bride then walked down the aisle on the arm of her husband, to the strains of Mendlessohnʼs Wedding March, greeting her many friends with a happy smile. The bride's mother wore a lovely dress of a small green check taffetas, trimmed with bands of a deeper shade of green velvet. With this she wore a toque of shades of blue and green.
  The reception was held on the tennis courts near by. Two large shamianas were erected, under one of which stood the cake, and in the other were the many lovely presents. The bridegroomʼs present to the bride consisted of a silver fitted dressing case and the brideʼs to the bridegroom a silver fitted suit case. Mr. Sparkes proposed the health of the bride and bridegroom, and the band of the 63rd Palamcottahs played various selections. The bride's going-away dress was of pale blue with a lace yoke and a white hat caught up with pink roses. The honeymoon is to be spent in Darjiling.
  Among the numerous guests present I noticed Mrs. Copleston in grey silk trimmed with lace, and touches of black, the Misses Copleston in white muslin frocks and white lace hats, Mrs. Barrow in blue, Mrs. Harris in a shot oyster coloured taffetas. Miss Harris in white. Mrs. Ormiston in a beautiful gown of French grey cloth, Mrs. And Miss Porter in white

I feel sincere pleasure in giving my testimony to the excellent conduct of Master John Carpendale.
Whilst he was under my care -
  He was at Dungannon School for three years, the greater proportion of which he lived as a boarder in my house ; I had therefore
every opportunity of knowing his character ; and I can say with truth that he was always distinguished for propriety of conduct, diligence in study and improvement in the various branches of his education.
  He is a good classical scholar and has read Virgil, Lucien etc etc. He has also read a good deal of Euclid, some algebra, trigonometry, arithmetic etc etc.

(This is exactly as printed. There is positional error of the words "Lieut.-Col., of Shankill House, Co. Dublin" which should be directly after 'Montague Maxwell'; a comma should exist between Shaw and Marion since Elizabeth and Marion were different people, thus also 7 daughters. Finally, Maxwell became rector at Tamlaght in 1838, not 1833)

CARPENDALE, MJR. MAXWELL M. M.C.
Education: Maxwell attended Haileybury school, Hertfordshire, England, and was in Bartle Frere house from 1897 to 1901.

Occupation:
Officer in the 36th Jacob's Horse in the Indian Army. Maxwell was a Lieutenant when he won the medal shown in 1910, and in the 1911 census. He was a Major at his death in 1918. The "M.C." after his name in the War Memorial indicates that Maxwell received the Military Cross which was awarded to junior officers for "gallantry in the field". Since this medal is only awarded to officers of rank Captain and below, it must have been awarded to Maxwell before his promotion to Major.

Death: 14 October 1918, on active service in Damascus, Syria, of malaria.
Great Britain and the East 25 October 1918 p869
OBITUARY.
Major Maxwell Montagu Carpendale, Indian Cavalry, died on October 15 of malaria, while on active service abroad, aged 35. He was the eldest son of the late Colonel M. M. Carpendale of Shanklin House, Co. Dublin, and Mrs. Carpendale, of Bray, Ireland.

Buried: Damascus Commonwealth War Cemetery grave A.18. A note attached to the cemetery in the War Graves Commission entry reads "The cemetery dates from the First World War when Damascus was entered by Commonwealth forces on 1 October 1918. The first medical unit arriving the next day found the Turkish hospitals crowded with sick and wounded, and a few days later an epidemic of influenza and cholera broke out. The First World War burials in this cemetery were mostly from these hospitals."

Maxwell is honoured on the War Memorial and Roll of Honour at Rathmichael Church on Rathmichael Road, in Shankhill, county Dublin, on the Bray War Memorial on Quinsborough Road in Bray, county Wicklow, and on the Great War Memorial, in Christ Church, Church Road, Bray.

Birth: 27 July 1827

Father: Thomas Carpendale

Mother: Lucinda (Bagwell) Carpendale

Married: John Wilson Elliott on 11 December 1856, in the parish church of Donaghmore, county Tyrone, Ireland
At the time of her marriage, Mehetabel was "of Mullamore Glebe". Mullaghmore Glebe is a townland in the parish of Donaghmore, county Tyrone. Christopher E. Brennen has transcribed the marriage record on his web site http://www.dankat.com/kerr/file3c.htm which shows Mehetabel's father as "Thomas Elliot, rector of the parish" which should clearly be Thomas Carpendale, known to be both her father and the rector of Donaghmore at the time. It is unknown if the record or the transcription is in error.
The transcribed marriage record reads:
John Wilson Elliott, esq., full age, widower, surgeon, of Tullynure Lodge (father: James Wilson Elliott, gentleman) to Mehetabel Jane Elizabeth Carpendale, full age, spinster, of Mullamore Glebe (father: Thomas Elliott, rector of parish) on Dec.11, 1856, in the Parish Church of Donaghmore.

Notes: Montague was an officer in the Indian forces. In 1859, he was promoted to lieutenant in the 30th Regt. N.I. and as a witness to the marriage of his younger sister Wilhelmina in 1876, he is a Captain in the 2nd Scinde Horse. At the time of his marriage in 1882, Montague had reached the rank of Lieutenant-Colonel. In Sophia (Carter) Cashel's will written in January 1890, he is referred to as "of Glenbervie Bray in Co. of Wicklow" and in 1901, at the funeral of Harriet Carpendale, he is recorded as living in Shankhill (county Dublin). Infomation at the time of the death of his son Maxwell in 1918 records the late Col. Montague Maxwell Carpendale being in the 36th Jacob's Horse (the 2nd Scinde Horse became the 6th Bombay Cavalry in 1885, and then the 36th Jacobs Horse in 1903).

A death notice appeared in the Cork Examiner on 22 January 1866 (indexed at tiara.ie). I assume that the date of the notice is in relation to the death of Edward Percy St. Maur.

William's first wife was Sarah's sister, Rebecca Carpendale. This type of marriage was not illegal at the time (it became so in 1835, with a clause grandfathering existing marriages) but was frowned upon by the church, which considered it a marriage within a prohibited degree. Such marriages were not absolutely void but were voidable at the suit of any interested party, and this may have been the reason that the marriage took place in Sheffield.

Thomas was the tutor to the family of the Marquis of Bath at Longleat, Wiltshire and in 1777, the Marquis appointed him master of the Grammar School at Carrickmacross in County Monaghan. Thomas was ordained by the Bishop of Ely on 28 June 1780, without a title. In 1871, Thomas published a "Plan of the School of Carrickmacross under the direction of the Rev Mr Carpendale". Part of the dedication of this pamphlet is to "John, Lord Bishop of Clogher", whose daughter, Jane Maxwell, Thomas was to marry the next year. The school at Carrickmacross flourished and when the Royal School of Armagh became vacant in 1786, Dr. Carpendale was pressed by the Primate Robinson (Baron Rokeby) to take the position, which he did on 6 March 1786 with the full consent and support of his patron, Lord Bath. This school rapidly improved under Thomas's mastership and was not uncommonly called the "Eton of Ireland". The history of the Royal School tells how "The Headmaster of the Royal School lived in the fine premises built at College Hill by Archbishop Robinson in 1774. He lived in great style with the records showing that in 1776 his income was £400 per annum -a considerable sum for that time. He also had the income from the apples grown in the walled garden at the back of the school. There were about 400 apple trees and the original apple store later became first the site of the Sanatorium and then later the Preparatory School. There was also a field, where the cark park on the Portadown Road is now which sustained a herd of cows. The Headmaster's Drawing Room is now the Board Room of the school where the Board of Governors meets and the other living accommodation is now used for Boarders."

The Topographical Dictionary of Ireland by Nicholas Carlisle (London 1810) mentions Dr. Carpendale's influence on the Royal School.
Extracts from the section on Armagh have been made by Helen Longworth:
"According to the Report of the Commission of the Board of Education, the lands with which the School of Armagh is endowed contain, as appears by the last Survey made in the year 1771, 1530 acres English measure, including roads, lakes, rivers and also 100 acres of Bog. The lands are situated in the County of Armagh between the towns of Newry and Armagh.

It appears that the land produced in the year 1804 the gross annual rent of £1144. The present Master, The Rev Thomas Carpendale AM, was appointed by Primate Robinson in the year 1786 to be Master upon the resignation of Dr Grubere for a valuable consideration.

Mr Carpendale is stated to have paid, during the whole time that he has been Master, the closest and most laudable attention to the duties of the School; no school in this country maintains a higher reputation than that of Armagh.
...

The City of Armagh, which was very much decayed was renovated and is become a pretty town of good size and well inhabited through the attention and munificence of Richard Robinson D.D. , Baron Rokeby, late Lord Primate who built there a handsome Archiepiscopal Palace and a noble house for the School which is one of the Royal Foundations (of Charles the First) and is extremely well endowed."


Thomas was Vicar-Choral of Armagh Cathedral from 21 August 1804 until 1817.

Death: 28 October 1817, of a typhus fever in Armagh, Ireland 

The following was written in eulogy by Lieutenant-Colonel Blacker, an ex-pupil of Thomas Carpendale:
Witness your Courts that ring with boy-hoods glee,
The "twig is bent" to form the goodly tree,
The graceful Pillar and the mansion fair,
Those grove clad hills attest his tasteful Care,
At left a rising city where he found
But dens of squalid wretchfulness abound;
Pilgrim of classic feeling, linger here,
And have a sigh for one to learning dear;
One whose scholastic fame and talent
<indeciperable>
Drew Erins choiciest scions to his Care.
His was the task the youthful mind to store
Alike with Classics and with pious love.
Twas his with noblest thoughts the breast to fill
And truth with wisdoms lessons to instil!
The rising flame of honor still to fan
And blend the scholar with the Gentleman
Lamented Carpendale, thy Pupil pays
To thee this tribute of his humble lays


Thomas's death in 1817 was "a loss severely felt by others and duly recognised by a number of Irish Gentlemen who enjoyed the advantage of his tuition and care by erecting to his memory a handsome monument in the Cathedral of Armagh". The inscription on this marble monument in the south aisle of the cathedral reads:
"Beneath are deposited the mortal remains
of the Reverend Thomas Carpendale, A.M.,
Head Master of the College, Armagh,
for thirty-one years.
Highly distinguished in his Public Capacity
as a Scholar, & Gentleman and a Christian.
He was no less eminent in private life
in the endearing relation of a Friend,
a Husband and a Father.
He fell a victim to epidemic fever
by which this city was most awfully visited
October 18, 1817
aged 63 years,
leaving to an afflicted family the consoling
reflection that by adherence to his precepts,
and imitation of his example, they may
yet join him in those Mansions of Bliss
where the righteous enter into the
joy of their Lord

Rev. Thomas Carpendale,

RECTOR OF DONAGHMORE,

(COUNTY TYRONE.)

Died 18th March, 1865.

AGED 78 YEARS.


To the Editor, BELFAST NEWS LETTER. - A correspondent, writing from Trinity College, Dublin, says:- Having seen in your paper the account of the death of the Rev. Thomas Carpendale, rector of Donaghmore, will you kindly allow me to trespass on your valuable space by saying how deeply I was affected by the circumstance? I had the honour of knowing the deceased several years ago, when my lasting esteem and grateful affection were won by the kind and courteous manners of the late amiable and accomplished gentleman. Indeed I shall never forget his deep and earnest kindness, mingled as it was with an elegance and refinement of mind, that endeared him to all who had the privilege of knowing him ; and there was a heartiness about everything he did that appealed at once to our higher nature. He was one of the most elegant preachers I ever heard. Descended from ancestors distinguished and illustrious in the most perilous times of our country's history, he had deeply at heart the great principles of our constitution, and yet his life was so blameless, so sincere, so benelovent, that there were few of any party or creed who did not love and respect the deceased. I have listened to tales told in a homely way, of his unbounded goodness and kindness, and that, too, with eyes glistening with emotion, by people who dwelt in his own neighbourhood, and I have come away with the conviction that the man who had so won the hearts of those who knew him by the exercise of the highest qualities, had truly and nobly performed his part in life. The conciousness that his memory is embalmed in the hearts who knew him, must be some consolation to his widow and sons, one of whom holds a very distinguished position in our Indian empire.

Together with an easy and agreeable method of instructing all breeds of dogs, in a great variety of amusing and useful performances. by Francis Butler, illustrated by Thomas Coulson Carpendale
scanned by Helen Longworth


Father: William Carpendale

Mother: Emma (Coulson) Carpendale

Occupation: Artist. Thomas was most well known for his chalk and pen representations of animals. He seems to have spent more time on American subjects and appears mostly in American publications, such as Harper's Weekly. He exhibited at the Upper Canada provincial exhibitions in 1850 and 1851 "The animal chalk drawings of T. C. Carpendale, a youthful English artist, excited great interest at the 1850 and 1851 exhibitions; as an added premium the exhibition committee engaged him to sketch the prize livestock in 1850." A modern reviewer of Thomas's work on Seward's Arabs, an example of which is Siklauy-Gidran below, is less enthusiastic "The portraits of the Seward Arabians were drawings made by the well known artist of his day, Mr. T.C. Carpendale, and are pen sketches highly embellished in Oriental fashion as if the horses were being shown upon a stage and the curtain drawn to one side. The drawings were then engraved in wood, which also required the services of a skilled artist, as those wood blocks were used by Harper's Weekly in full page illustrations in their issue of January 12, 1861, before photography made it possible to record more lifelike pictures and reproduce them by the modern halftone method. Artist Carpendale may have been a noted artist of his day, but his drawings fell short of his word descriptions of these two horses quoted above, for his drawings are rather stilted and fail to portray the beauty he saw in the horses before him."

Thomas was the illustrator of an early book on dog training Breeding, Training, Management, Diseases &c. of Dogs:by Francis Butler (NY: Privately published by the author in 1857) "Beautifully illustrated by Thomas Coulson Carpendale". The title page of this book is shown at right. Some of the illustrations in the book are of special interest as they are of dogs that Thomas owned.

Thomas's illustrations also appear in Curiosities of Natural History (1882) by Francis Buckland. In the book, Francis describes the death of a lion at the London Zoological Gardens.
"It appeared that the lion was quite well on Saturday night, and ate his food heartily as usual; but when the keeper came on Sunday morning, behold, the poor beast was extended full length, dead and stiff upon the straw of his bed, having apparently died without a struggle. Alas ! poor Lion !
  The able pencil of Mr. T. C. Carpendale enables me to partially represent the grand and really magnificent appearance of The Monarch Of The Desert Lying In State. The artist has endeavoured to give the idea of a very old lion, who has lived his full term of years free and unmolested in his native desert. But the "grey hair came upon him !" his teeth and his claws became unequal to their work, and he could no longer provide himself with food. He wanders along the sandy wilderness, till, faint and exhausted, his strength will carry him no further. He stumbles against a rock, and falls to rise no more. (See Plate.)

But Mr. Carpendale shall describe his drawing in his own words:-
Dead Lion illustration
"The Monarch Lying in State"
from Curiosities of Natural History(1882) by Francis Trevelyan Buckland p200


    THE LION'S TOMB.
Pale twilight, deep'ning, sheds a sober gloom,
Aud dimly lights the lion's lonely tomb;
Th' awakened plunderers of earth and air
Around the dying chieftain's couch repair;
While, high in air, with dark and shadowy wing,
Behold th' expectant vulture hovering!
Mark how she lingers in the starry sky,
And tunes her plaintive, funeral song on high!
Near, and more near, athwart the fading light,
She screams terrific to the peaceful night,
Chanting her farewell sonnet to the sun?
Sad emblem that his mighty race is run. "

In 1882, the wife of William's late brother John, Anne (Skottowe) Carpendale died, and in accordance with John's will, guardianship of John and Anne's younger children passed to William. These would have been Mary Alice, then aged 14 and possibly Charles, then aged 18 and of uncertain mental health. A reference in 1901 shows William still living in Dungannon.

William Maxwell Carpendale

Title: Colonel

Birth:
14 May 1862, in Madras, India

Father: John Carpendale

Mother: Anne Mary Elizabeth (Skottowe) Carpendale

Married: Caroline Mary St John in 1890, in Bengal, India
Caroline was born on 12 August 1864 and baptised on 4 September 1864 in Meerut, Bengal, the daughter of Mark Kerr St John and Agnes Isabella Fraser. Agnes Fraser and Mark St. John were married in the Bengal Presidency, India, in 1862 (vol 102 p59). Caroline died on 16 February 1937, at 10 Park Hill, Ealing, London, aged 72.
Census:
1881: Bucknell House, Ealing, Middlesex

Children: Occupation: Officer, Indian Army

William was appointed to the Staff Corp of the Indian Army in 1881 after completion of the Cadet course at Sandhurst. He would have been a Lieutenant in Bengal in 1886 when the Third Anglo Burmese War started and may well have been dispatched to Burma as part of the British Field Force which comprised a mix of British and Indian Army regiments. Records in 1890 (marriage) and 1892 (christening of first son) show him as a Lieutenant. The London Gazette in 1907, in section on promotions (Major to Lieutenant-Colonel) in Indian Army, refers to William Maxwell Carpendale 8th Cavalry. (The 8th Regiment of Bengal Cavalry (1861-1900) became the (plain) 8th Cavalry in 1904), and on a document received from James Savage dated 1948, he is referred to as Colonel.

Notes: In 1885, William was engaged to Mary du Caurroy Tribe while at Sialkot. On 27 September 1885 William was ordered to Allahabad and then sent to Burma. The engagement did not last the separation and was broken off in February 1886. Mary later married Lord Herbrand Russell and became the Duchess of Bedfordshire, more popularly known as the "Flying Duchess". She started and personally administered a hospital in Woburn, was an outstanding nurse and an early expert on radiology and radiography, as well as being a well known ornithologist. In her sixties she took up flying taking flights to Europe, India and South Africa before qualifying as a pilot in 1930 at the age of 65. By Spring 1937 the Duchess, then 71, took a short flight close to her home at Woburn Abbey. She failed to return and several days later pieces of wreckage from her aircraft, a Cirrus Moth, were washed up on the east coast of England near Yarmouth. It is believed she aligned her compass incorrectly, flew into some bad weather and crashed into the sea.

A letter from William to Mary's mother at the time of the breaking of the engagement is still at Woburn Abbey, and has been transcribed by Meriel Buxton:

Pagan
Upper Burmah

18th Feb 86

My dear Mrs. Tribe

I have just heard from my darling Mary this morning saying that our engagement had been broken off. I am very grieved and broken down at the news, but must say that the fault is entirely mine. Would you kindly forgive me for having treated poor Mary a little unkindly. I never meant it in earnest and am very sorry for I love her most dearly. My mind is quiet (sic) upset, so much so, that I hardly know what I am about. I never wanted her to give me up. I have tried hard for a whole year to win her, and having done so it seems hard to lose her. It is a blow I can scarcely bear. Would you my dear Mrs Tribe, persuade Mary to change her mind and take me back again.
I have nothing left in life now to hope for, nothing to work for. Please write to me again and give me a few words of encouragement & hope, and believe me
Ever yours affectionately
W.M.Carpendale
