The richer class had the floors waxed and the poorer used sand or rushes. Many were the visitors who called to see this innovation and numerous the remarks on the so called extravagance.’32

  • The Venerable Francis Wrangham, M.A., F.R.S. Born June 11th 1769 at Raisthorpe, a farm-house in the parish of Wharram Percy.
    ‘He was educated privately until at the age of fifteen he went for two years to Hull Grammar School under the Rev. Joseph Milner, as had William Wilberforce some eighteen years before. Thereafter he had a brilliant career at Cambridge, gaining the highest honours in classics and mathematics, and the Chancellor’s gold medal and Sir William Browne’s gold medal33. In 1793 he was ordained and two years later he became rector of Hunmanby in the East Riding: he retained this living until his death, his elder son acting as resident curate latterly.
    ‘In Yorkshire he was three times appointed Chaplain of Assize, and for twenty years he was examining chaplain to the Archbishop. He was made Archdeacon of Cleveland and later Archdeacon of the East Riding. In 1825 he became a Prebendary of Chester, and in due course rector of Dodleston. From then on he divided his year between his house in St. John’s Place, Chester, and his vicarage at Hunmanby. In 1841 he retired to Chester, giving up the archdeaconry, in which he was succeeded by his son-in-law, the Rev. R.I. Wilberforce. He died at Chester on 27th December, 1842, and his body was honoured by burial in the Lady Chapel of the Cathedral34.
    ‘As a village parson he was notably practical -the founder of a Cow Club, a Village Library and a Dispensary, and also the warm advocate of a Savings Bank. The records of his questionnaires, visitations and charges show how thoroughly he practised his duties as archdeacon, what importance he attached to wider education and how much trouble he devoted to the restoration and preservation of church buildings. His sermons, even if Sydney Smith found them sometimes “sesquipedalian”, were deeply concerned with “making religion part of the lives of ordinary folk rather than a weekly dose of hortatory condescension”. Once on visiting a neighbouring church to take the service and on being warned that a turkey was nesting in the pulpit, he forebore to preach, remarking that nobody would miss a sermon anyway. As he himself recognised, his loyalty to Whig principles and to the unpopular cause of Catholic Emancipation kept him “unmitred”.
    ‘His printed works, not far short of 100 in number, principally covered religious, classical and historical subjects. They included numerous translations, Greek, Latin, Italian and French; and also much verse, English, French and Latin. Many were issued privately, and often a few copies were run off on coloured paper for the interest of subsequent bibliophiles. He contributed directly or indirectly to every guide-book to the Yorkshire coast in his time, he virtually founded the Northern Sea Bathing Infirmary at Scarborough -himself writing the prospectus- and no one did more to popularize that town in prose and verse. His literary friends included Scott, Wordsworth and Miss Mitford. He became a Fellow of the Royal Society and a member of the Bannatyne and Roxburghe Clubs.
    ‘Perhaps more lasting fame derives from his library, which he had built up to over 15,000 volumes by 1819. His tastes, reasonably catholic, centred on the odd, the obscure and the neglected. He added a wing to Hunmanby Vicarage to house shelves, sometimes doubly filled, in every room, where his friend, Sydney Smith, had rightly warned that they would creep over the walls like an erysipelas. In due course several thousand books were “colonized” at Chester. Shortly before his death he bestowed on Trinity College, Cambridge, about 1,000 volumes containing from 8 to 10,000 tracts. To meet the terms of his Will the library was sold by Sotheby & Co. in London during two sessions each of ten days, covering the two sections at Hunmanby and Chester respectively.
    ‘He was a devoted family man. His first wife, Agnes (Creyke)35, he had two sons and three daughters, subsequently Mrs. Edward Barnard, Mrs. Whitehall Dod and Mrs. Henry Raikes. Of his sons only the younger married, his wife being the daughter of the Archdeacon’s close friend, Walter Fawkes of Farnley. Family and other letters record his fatherly affection: he dedicated to his children a special poem, “The Quadruped’s Feast”.
    ‘“National Portraits”, published in his lifetime, wrote of him thus:- “In private life Mr. Wrangham is a gentleman of very polished manners, his address most courteous and persuasive, his person tall and commanding, his countenance eminently dignified, and, if we may (from its mild and benevolent expression) use the word, apostolical.”37
    ‘His neighbour and very warm friend, the Rev. Sydney Smith, loved to pull his leg:- “I am sorry to give you trouble, but to apologize to you for asking information is as it were to beg pardon of a cow for milking, or of the pump for taking water of it.”
    ‘Half a century later his youngest daughter wrote to her own children:- “But none of you can remember his charming manners, the sweetness and tenderness of his smile, the elegance of his language, the suavity of his reproofs, so that the servants used to say they liked being found fault with by master -he always seemed so to have trusted them and been fond of them”.’38

      ‘after a passage of 4 day…, the first Day I was not sick but on the second I was very Sick and wished my self on shore a gain till I got well and then I thought no more about it’
      ‘the Captain is a very good man and so is the mate but we never go to Prayers as you where told.’75
      ‘I have no Companion but a young man who as been a Midshipman on Bord a man of war but after having spent a Forton is know torned out but as with him a Letter of… recomendations from the Cap.’
      In a subsequent letter, dated December 16th (?) 1796 at Yarmouth, he informs his parents of his safe return from a seven week cruise in which several prizes were taken, declaring that ‘the Ardent is a very good Ship and a good Captain’ and asking them to ‘take Care of the Dart that I got at the Bullfight in Cadiz’.
      He served on HMS Ardent in 1796 and 1797, doing ‘his duty in the fore-top’, where he ‘appears to have conducted himself very well76. Unfortunately, he took part in the mutiny at Spithead and The Nore77, having been sent to Sheerness as one of the mutineers' delegates. Escaping to London, he found employment on a ship bound for Gibraltar. He subsequently traded in the West Indies, where he had the ‘bad forton to be taken by the Spaniards’ and ‘condemned to be a slave for 7 years but as luck would have it… escaped after a twelve months hard larbours’.

      He continues:
      ‘and my self who remained by the Vessel when I arrived in England I was at a loss what to do fearful that it might convey now allarming tidinges than his health would waunt if I sent the Letter I have delayed till this time hoping that you might hear of his Good health but being on my way for Amricar Thought best to write & inclose with a statement of the Voyage that he performed the ship he shipt about the 7th Dicr. 1804 on bord of the ship Thames of New York… bound to Cadiz & from thence to Batavia she put into the Cape her homeward bound passage when we left June the 2d 1805 the ship was clea( ) when she arrived in England and proseeded from thence to Amster Dam and is now on her passage to New York where I am in hope that I shall see him in good health to Reicive his wages.’

    ‘After leaving school he was apprenticed to a draper in Hull. This apprenticeship over, he was employed as assistant to the well known Mr. Henry Pickering, of Malton -at that time the leading draper of the district. Tiring of the draper’s trade, which he had never really liked, he started as a wine and spirit merchant in partnership with Mr. George Hardy, trading under the style of “Wrangham and Hardy”. This partnership did not last long, and he carried on the business under his own name, becoming district agent of Tetley’s, of Leeds.
    When the one-time famous tanning firm of Priestman’s was disolved and their extensive premises became for sale, Mr. Wrangham purchased the property and established there the Crystal Brewery, which he carried on for many years with success.’80
    Around 1897
    ‘he amalgamated with the old-established firm of Messrs. J. Russell and Sons, under the style and title of Russell & Wrangham Ltd.81
    ‘A retiring man, Mr. Wrangham took no position in public affairs, but in private life he was always ready to help both with money and in other ways.
    As an employer of labour he was highly respected, and his men and clerks were generally “fixtures”. It may be truly said, “that those who knew him best loved him best”. He had a kind word for everybody. Unlike most Maltonians, he was a keen reader, keeping a close eye on the best new books which were being published -especially travel and the most notable works of fiction.
    In politics Mr. Wrangham was a conservative, his honest conviction being that conservatism was best for all parties.’
    82. Married at Malton August 5th 1851 Elizabeth Newlove (born at East Heslerton, Yorkshire, August 5th 1830 and died December 6th 1908), ‘daughter of Mr. Newlove, a well-known Yorkshire farmer.83. Died June 23rd 1910 after an illness of some years' duration

The Wranghams of the Island of Saint Helena

The library of the Society of Genealogists, in London, holds a typescript copy of some notes on the Wrangham family of Saint Helena by E.F.M., dated February 18th 1939 at San Diego, California, USA107. The following is an adaptation:


The notes following, on the Wrangham family of St. Helena, are based upon data supplied by G.C. Kitching, Esq., O.B.E., Government Secretary, Jamestown, St. Helena, and by Miss L.M. Anstey, of the India Office, Whitehall, London S.W.1.

Some of the dates given on a tombstone in Jamestown Cemetery do not always agree with the dates shown in the Church Registers or in the records of the India Office. Inasmuch as the tombstone was erected after the events of death and burial, the dates shown in the inscription are, no doubt, less accurate than those which appear in the Church Registers or in the India Office Records.
