HENRY BAILEY

It was towards the end of the reign of George IV that William and Elizabeth Bailey moved to Little Dean and the first child they had there was Henry, christened in May 1827 - his surname was shown as Baylis in the Parish register. He was only 9 years old when his mother died in 1836, the year before Queen Victoria came to the throne.

By June 1841 on Census night only his older brother Charles, then 24, his daughter Elizabeth and young son Edwin were with William and his second wife, Charlotte at Little Dean. Perhaps his stepmother could not cope with Henry and the three elder boys William George and Samuel, so they were staying with relatives or even working as apprentices. The next record of Henry is of his marriage in July 1850 at Parish Church Cheltenham - a large town some 12 miles north east of Little Dean, when he gave his occupation as blacksmith.

His bride Elizabeth Ann James was born at North Petherton in Somerset, to the south west of the town of Bristol. She is said to have been a great beauty with glorious titian hair, who took the eye of a famous London portrait painter. He was very anxious for her to sit for him to paint a portrait, but as the family did not approve of her being alone with the artist for the many hours needed to finish the work, the whole idea came to nothing.

Though Elizabeth Ann's father, Daniel was shown as a mariner on her marriage certificate, when Daniel himself was married in May 1826 at North Petherton, his occupation was given as sojourner i.e. someone who comes into a village and stays longer than 12 months.

It is not known how Elizabeth and Henry met but perhaps it was through Henry's cousin William and wife Hannah who lived about this time in Cheltenham, or maybe Henry had been doing some work on the steam machinery at one of the spas there.

At the time of her marriage Elizabeth Ann was said to be living at 12 Royal Parade Cheltenham and in the early 1800s this was an area where many wealthy people had their houses. Some were permanent homes and others rented out to people who were 'taking the waters' in one of the nearby mineral springs for which the town was famous - in more recent times these large houses have been turned into flats and apartments. The Cheltenham hot springs had been found as early as 1716, but came into fame with a visit of George III in 1788. The original spa at Old Well had been built about 1738 and Montpelier Spa about 30 years later, while the one at Pittville was developed around a lake and large gardens about 1830.

Barely nine months after their marriage, by the end of March 185l, Henry was working as a policeman at Barton Terrace, in the city of Gloucester, whilst his wife was living at Broad Street, Little Dean, having lost her first baby little Henry when he was ll days old about two weeks earlier. Her sole companion at that time seems to have been a visitor one Esther Curran only 14 years old.

Sometime before 1853, when their second son Walter, the central figure of this book, was born, Henry had come back to Little Dean, to resume his trade as a blacksmith. It was another two years before his first daughter Dinah was born, and there is one family story that, after her birth, Henry took the family to Cardiff and set up business there. He is said to have been a renowned farrier and horses were brought from all over England to his smithy to be shod. There was even said to have been one special room in the house, where food was always available for customers who had brought their horses from far away.

Sometime before 1860, Henry brought his family to live at Newnham, about 4 miles from Little Dean, on the banks of the river Severn. Here their third son, Daniel was born in September 1860, followed in November 1863 by their youngest son Anselm.

It may have been about this time that Henry bought a property in High Street, Newnham, on the same side but a little higher up than the Bailey grocery store. For some reason or other, Henry's name is not on the list of ratepayers for 1865, but he is recorded as a blacksmith in an 1868 Trades Directory. His property was probably previously the site of the Lamb and Flag Inn, which was a common name for inns in England - they all had for their signs a Crusader in armour bearing the flag of St. George together with a lamb. In Victoria History of Counties of England the site is recorded as "the Gable House and Tower Cottage (which) together form another timber framed house with an altered gable front" and in late 1993 the house bore the nameplate "Flag House". Where the money came from for this purchase can only be guessed at, but as Henry's father William had died in 1862, supposedly leaving only effects to his second wife, it is tempting to wonder if William had earlier disposed of his property Homepiece in such a manner as to avoid paying any death duties, whilst ensuring that some of his sons reaped the benefits. Of course, the money may just as well have been made by Henry from his farrier business in Cardiff.

On the site of Lamb and Flag Inn stood a shop, a house and yard and outhouses which had been earlier rented out to the local butcher, Henry Stinson. Henry gave him notice to quit all but the shop, but when Henry went to build a forge for his blacksmith shop, he found all the timber he had intended to use had vanished, so he charged Henry Stinson with stealing it. The report in The Gloucester Journal says the local magistrate sent the case on to the local Assizes for trial in July and August 1864, but there was no joy for Henry. His case was dismissed as not being a felony, but a domestic dispute, with the rider that as both men appeared to have money, let Henry use some of his to take the matter to the County Court. Only a month later, Henry was back in court, charging Stinson's wife Hannah with malicious damage to Henry's windows, but again Henry lost his case and was not even awarded costs.

It was in April 1866 that Elizabeth Ann had her second daughter and namesake Elizabeth and quite suddenly in January 1869, Henry caught a severe chill and was dead within 2 or 3 days. Henry died in Elizabeth's presence and the death certificate mentioned phthisis, as pulmonary consumption (tuberculosis) was called in those days. Henry did not leave a will, but one family story says that before his death, he had almost perfected a formula for tempering steel - a process that makes it soft and elastic. Unluckily, the formula died with Henry, but had it been patented, it would really have made millions for his family.

Elizabeth Ann was pregnant and her last recorded child Mary Jane was born in October 1869. Henry's business kept operating and a few months later in February 1870, Elizabeth Ann remarried. Her second husband was Thomas Lewis, who though recorded as a blacksmith on their marriage certificate, seems to have been Henry's book-keeper. However whatever funds Henry had left, so the story goes, soon vanished because of Thomas' drinking habits or some financial disaster and all attempts to find any trace of Thomas Lewis, Elizabeth Ann and her daughter Elizabeth Bailey have so far been in vain - unless they emigrated, it is possible that records of them may be found somewhere in England or Wales, but who knows where?

Even though she was barely six, there is no mention of the elder daughter Dinah at the time of April 186l census -perhaps she had been left behind with friends or relatives in Cardiff. The next record found about Dinah is in Swansea in Wales in 1875 at the time of her marriage at St Peter's Chapel of Wase to Jenkin Phillips who was a joiner.

It was over thirty years later that she went to stay with her brother Daniel in Edinburgh when his wife Annie, was dangerously ill. With her came a son Idris about 8 and it seems an older son who was an ambulance driver together with his wife and their young baby. The latter came down with diphtheria and the whole house was swathed in sheets drenched with antiseptic and placed in quarantine, until the baby recovered.

Dinah was evidently in touch with Walter in Brisbane, because my father Daniel reported visiting her in Cardiff at the beginning of 1918, before he was sent to France, but nothing further is known of her life or family.

Dinah's son Idris did not marry until late in life, after his mother died. His wife was still alive early in 1999 in Cardiff, Wales. They had a daughter Verona, who went to New Zealand in 1974 and she lives only 4 miles away from Alison Martin.

Henry and Elizabeth Ann's third son, Daniel seems to have been very determined, even as a child. The story is told about him feeling very sad after his father died and deciding to run away from his Newnham home. With his favourite hen tucked under his arm, nine year old Daniel trudged the four miles, mostly uphill, to Little Dean and he arrived at his aunt (Eliza Ferris)'s house, stating quite firmly that he had come there to live.

Daniel is recorded in 1871 as being a scholar at Westbury Union Poorhouse at Newnham, where there was a workhouse as early as l675, when the church house had been divided into tenements for the poor. In 1789 a three storey workhouse was built and in 1795, a Gloucester firm of pin makers had contracted to employ the paupers in the workhouse for 7 years. In later years, there are reports of spinning and weaving being done there. However in Daniel's time , it is said that the inmates were "farmed out" to work for various local people, their wages being paid directly to the workhouse overseer.

An advertisement placed in The Gloucester Journal for 3 March 1860 by Westbury Union calling for tradesmen to provide samples and tender for best "Seconds" of Flour, Meat, Bacon Cheese etc reflects only too well the attitude of the community at that time to those unfortunates who had no where else to live.

There are no records to show the date Daniel left the workhouse, but one family story has it that Daniel worked for a while as a forester in the nearby Forest of Dean. Another report has it that it was possibly as early as 1872 that he may have gone to work in a coal mine - quite legal at that time. When work at the coal mine slackened off, Daniel went to work at a wire factory, but at the time of his marriage in 1880, he was working as a railway signalman in Porthcawl in Wales.

His bride Ann Fletcher came from Swadlincote in Derbyshire and she and Daniel eloped and were married in Wesleyan Methodist Chapel at Burton on Trent on the border of that shire and Staffordshire.

Ann went home for the birth of her first child Lucy in 1881, but the births of both Minnie in 1883 and Annie in 1886 were registered at Brigend near Porthcawl.

It was around this time that Daniel learned shorthand and added to his income by working as a casual reporter for The Brigend Chronicle. After a serious accident on the railway, in which he nearly lost his life Daniel decided, when he recovered to pursue a safer occupation, so he took up a trade and in a short time became foreman in a branch workshop that built railway wagons. However this extra responsibility took such a toll on his mental health, that Daniel left the railway and got a job in a clerical capacity at a colliery at Church Gresley close to Swadlincote and here Henry was born in 1891.

Daniel took up his reporting work again, this time for The Burton Chronicle and as well, started work part time as an agent for an assurance company similar to British Homes. There were glowing reports of the amount of new business he wrote for that company, but he decided British Homes offered better prospects, and in August 1895 he became their first full time agent for the Midlands, with Ashby de la Zouch as his base and here Elsie was born in 1896. Once again Daniel was very successful in attracting new funds, so he was appointed district manager for Leicester, and by 1897 he was overseeing the work of 400 agents, who wrote a record amount of new business valued at over one hundred and twenty thousand pounds. Sometime before 1899 Daniel was promoted to be manager for Scotland and the family moved to Edinburgh and set up house at 17 Duddington Park Road and here Walter was born in 1899 and the last child Gladys in 1900. Although brought up in the Church of England Daniel joined the Wesleyan Methodists in Edinburgh and gained somewhat of a reputation in that area as a preacher.

It was only a year after Gladys was born that Queen Victoria's long reign came to an end, and she was succeeded by her son, Edward VII.

In 1908 tragedy struck Daniel and the family - their mother Ann's appendix burst and in the days before antibiotics, such peritonitis was almost always fatal. She became ill one Tuesday and despite day and night care by her nurses, Ann died on Friday 13 November and was buried at Portobello Cemetery.

This was the same year that Edward VII died from peritonitis also and his son George V came to the throne.

Daniel was heartbroken and very lonely and in May 1910, he remarried, his wife being Margaret Brakey, known as "Meg", who was a very good friend of his eldest daughter, Lucy. They had 2 children Katherine "Kitty" who married William Peters who had spent many years with British Diplomatic Service and they now live in Deal, while Daniel and Meg's son Leslie "Sonny" emigrated to South Africa.

Around August 1920, Daniel retired so he and Meg decided to emigrate to New Zealand. They came out in October of that year and bought a small house at Oxford, near where some of their family lived. Danielís brother Anselm came to live with them and at the end of April 1921, they were joined by Daniel's daughter, Elsie Lilly and her 6 weeks old baby Heather. Elsie was recuperating after a bout of scarlet fever and the house was far too small for all of them, so Daniel bought a larger one and the first house was rented out.

Meg was not very happy in New Zealand - she did not approve of 'colonial standards' and could not get any properly trained household help. It was the last straw when Daniel was bitten on the right hand by a Katipo - a New Zealand spider similar to the Australian Red Back. Daniel almost lost the use of his hand, owing he said to inefficient hospital treatment and as he and Meg were rather homesick, they decided to give Elsie's husband Walter power of attorney to sell the houses at Oxford and to return to Scotland.

They went home via Australia in February and March 1922, but after a short time in Scotland, they began to regret they had not stayed on in New Zealand to enjoy the sunshine. However, Daniel who was a diabetic was not well enough to undertake the long journey back, so they remained in Scotland where Daniel died at the end of 1928, being buried at Portobello Cemetery on 2 January 1929, while Meg lived on until 1948.

Daniel and Ann's eldest child Lucy never married but she trained as a nurse and served with Queen Alexandria's Imperial Military Nursing Service during World War I. About 1922 she went to USA and then joined her sister Minnie and husband John in Detroit. During the later years of Prohibition, Lucy's job became increasingly dangerous, so all three packed up and moved across the border to nearby Windsor, in Ontario, Canada where Lucy eventually died.

The second daughter Minnie had the unusual second name of Ferris probably from the married name of Daniel's aunt Eliza. About 1907 she married John Simpson, who came from Musselbrough, near Portobello. John was a cabinet maker, but could not get work in Scotland, so they emigrated to Detroit USA. There they had their two children, but later they moved to Canada with Lucy. Apart from a visit Minnie made in 1909 to see her family, they never returned to Scotland and they died in Canada.

William was the eldest son, who trained as a jeweller, watchmaker and optician in Edinburgh and he was a partner in a jeweller's shop in Goatbride in Scotland. He was very upset when his father remarried, so he decided to emigrate to New Zealand and in 1912 on the boat going out he met Edith Pryce who was the daughter of a Barnado Homes director. She was going to New Zealand to visit her widowed mother for six months, but she stayed on and got a job at Riverton Hospital.

When World War I started, William joined NZ Expeditionary Force and served in France and Egypt and he took the opportunity to visit his family in Edinburgh when on leave. He was wounded in France and finally sent back to New Zealand to Dunedin Hospital, where he spent three years having plastic surgery on his badly damaged face.

After he was discharged he bought a soldier settlement farm at Warkworth, north of Auckland and at long last he and Edith were married in October 1920 and you can read their story in The Family Saga.

The second son Henry "Harry" became an insurance manager, and he also dealt on the London stock market. During World War I he was commissioned on 29 June 1915 as Second Lieutenant 26849 in Special Reserve in Royal Field Artillery and promoted to Lieutenant on 1 July 1917. Harry served in Mesopotamia and India, and after being wounded, he was invalided out of his regiment, probably in 1919.

When Harry proposed to Daisy Horne, he offered her an enormous ring, which covered a third of her finger and had cost fifty pounds - a lot of money in those days. As the story goes, Daisy said she would wait until he had earned another fifty pounds, so as not to dip into his savings. To Daisy's surprise, Harry returned with the money half a day later, having just made a successful deal on the Stock Exchange.

They were married in 1920 near London where Daisy's father was managing director of another insurance firm. Because of his war time injuries, the doctors advised Harry to migrate to a warmer climate and Harry and Daisy arrived in Sydney at the end of 1920 or early 1921.

Their first child, Gladwyn, named in part after Daisy's sister Winifred, was born in Bathurst NSW in 1922 and they stayed there for a couple more years. Their home for the next 4 years was in Adelaide, where their only son Darry was born in 1929.

Later they moved to Yanchep, north of Perth where Harry was Postmaster and Superintendent of Yanchep Caves. Harry died from cancer in 1977 but Daisy survived him for 5 years and after a heart attack, she was in Claremont Hospital where she died in January 1982.

Harry and Daisy's daughter Gladwyn married a Traralgon policeman Harry Murfett at Flemington Vic in 1944 and they had 3 children. The eldest child Jean married Kenneth McNally a painter at Presbyterian Church at Traralgon in 1964 and they too have three children. Jean has kept in touch with Curtis Talbot in Salt Lake City and supplied many details about the Gloucestershire Baileys.

The third son in Daniel's family was Ernest and he must have joined 4th Royal Scots Regiment as Private 1044 at an early age. He went to Gallipoli where he was reported 'presumed dead' on 8 June 1915 and this was confirmed as 'killed in action' on 28 June 1915, which would have been his 21st birthday.

Elsie was the fourth girl born to Daniel and Annie and when she grew up, she worked for a time in the insurance office as Daniel's private secretary. Her cousin in New Zealand, Walter Lilly, son of Daniel's baby sister Mary Jane, had enlisted on the outbreak of World War I and while he was on leave from France, he decided to visit his uncle Daniel and family in Edinburgh. He was very taken with Elsie and she followed him out to New Zealand when the war was over, travelling with her sister Gladys. She and Walter married in 1920 and you can follow their story in The Family Saga. Walter died in 1969, but Elsie lived at Holdsworth House a home for the elderly in Christchurch until she died in September 1993, in her 98th year.

Walter George was the academic in the family and he obtained his degrees of Bachelor of Science and Master of Arts at Edinburgh University and was manager for ICI in Glasgow. Walter was a witness at his brother Harry's wedding in 1920 and he married Jean Jack and they had 2 children. Their daughter Marion was a schoolteacher, while their son was a doctor and he went to Canada, where he died after a heart attack. Walter died on Isle of Wight about 1960.

The baby of the family was Gladys and when she grew up she too did secretarial work, having trained as a shorthand typist. Walter Lilly's brother George "Les" also enlisted in World War I and was given leave in Britain, so he too paid a visit to his uncle Dan in Edinburgh and Gladys was the one who took his eye. After Gladys came out to New Zealand she and Les were married at Oxford just 19 days after Elsie and Walter and you can read their story also in The Family Saga. Les died in 1959 and eight years later Gladys married an old friend from her Edinburgh days, James Woodside, but he died 10 years later so Gladys is once more a widow and she lives in Auckland.

It was not until ten years later that there were any records of Anselm and Mary Jane - Anselm in April 1881 was unmarried, a blacksmith and boarding with Thomas and Eliza Belcher at Stockwell Green, near Cinderford. After he arrived in New Zealand, Anselm wrote Thomas and Eliza a letter of thanks reporting his safe arrival and his grand daughter Betty Cooper still has the letter that the Belchers wrote in reply. Though not shown in the genealogy, Betty is a daughter of Anselm's eldest son, Andrew John "Jack" Bailey.

Later that year, Anselm got a job as a carpenter in the Waggon Shop at Llwynpia Colliery at New Pontypridd in Rhondda Valley in Wales. Here he met his future wife Ann Parry and in August 1882 they were married there in the Wesley Chapel.

Mary Jane had been recorded (as Mary Ann) in 1881 as a Pauper back at Westbury Union Poorhouse, where Daniel had stayed ten years earlier. When Anselm decided he too would emigrate to New Zealand, it was resolved that he would take Mary Jane with him, and that she would live with Anselm's uncle Samuel and his wife. Samuel sent the eight pounds needed to pay for the emigration and outfitting costs of Anselm, his wife Ann and Mary Jane and they left England in November 1883 on the steamship Bombay arriving in Lyttleton New Zealand in January 1884.

Elizabeth Ann had given two of her treasures to Anselm to mind for Mary Jane until she was old enough. They included her harp and a beautiful box inlaid with mother of pearl. However, when Mary Jane asked about these items, she found that Anselm had already disposed of them. first two items, without telling her. Mary Jane's grand daughter Phyllis McNair is very sad about the loss of these items of such sentimental value. The stories of Anselm and Mary Jane's families and their lives can be read in the various chapters of The Family Saga.

All the places in this genealogy are, unless otherwise mentioned, in Gloucestershire England.
