CHAPTER IV: SECTOR B


WhiteSilence

                                                              And here among the English tombs
                                                  In Tuscan ground we lay her,
                                                  While the blue Tuscan sky endomes
                                                  Our English words of prayer.

                                                                                                                                        Epitaph for Lily Cottrell 1849, B102

                                                                         There's a verse he set
                                                  In Santa Croce to her memory,
                                                  'Weep for an infant too young to weep much
                                                  When Death removed this mother,' stops the mirth
                                                  Today on women's faces when they walk
                                                  With rosy children hanging on their gowns,
                                                  Under the cloister to escape the sun
                                                  That scorches in the piazza.                         
                                                                                                                                      Aurora Leigh I.101-8 1857

The above epitaphs from Elizabeth Barrett Browning's poetry have been placed, thanks to the generosity of the Armstrong Browning Library, Baylor University, within the arch leading to the Cemetery. Soon we shall come to her tomb. First we go up the box-lined path leading towards the Column and Cross celebrating the King of Prussia, taking the box-lined path towards the Duomo marked 'Tomb of Walter Savage Landor'.

Bentinck Walter Yelverton and Anna Maria Bingham's daughter, Anna Maria [Cecilia] (B3), 09/06/34, was baptised together with 'Zaida Maria' (named after her aunt), whose mother was Louisa [Catherine] Bingham, by Rev Frederick Yelverton, who was her father, G23773 N° 23; FO79/67 Rev Frederick Yelverton having married [Louisa] Catherine Bingham at HBM (Edgecombe) 15/09/32.

WALTER BENTINCK YELVERTON/ IRELAND/ & ANNA MARIA (BINGHAM) YELVERTON/ IRELAND/ IN AFFECTIONATE MEMORY OF/ BENTINK YELVERTON/ AND HIS WIFE/ THE HON.BLE ANNA BINGHAM

Bentinck Walter, at nine, Frederick and two girls, Mary and Cecilia, were left orphans by the death of their mother. Their father, Walter Yelverton, had now left politics and was cursitor in the Court of Chancery in Ireland. In 1808, 17-year-old Bentinck was admitted to Trinity College Dublin as a Fellow Commoner. He attained a Bachelor of Arts in the summer of 1814. He subsequently secured a commission in the 6th (or 1st Warwickshire) Regiment of Foot but narrowly missed service in the Napoleonic Wars. He was with the regiment in Cape Town when word arrived that his father had died in Ireland in June 1824. Bentinck Walter Yelverton duly succeeded to Belle Isle but his attempts to manage his father's affairs and to look after his two unmarried sisters earned him an unfortunate blot in his copy book when the Adjutant's Roll noted he had been 'Absent without Leave from 31 March 1826'. We have an enchanting essay on his regimental spoon contributed by Michael Ayrton: yelvertons.html. He subsequently retired on half-pay. In June 1829, he married his cousin, the Hon. Anna Maria Bingham, eldest daughter of John Bingham, 1st Baron Clanmorris of Newbrook, County Mayo. Their daughter Anna Maria Cecilia was born in 1833. Bentinck died in Florence in 1837, aged forty-five, and was interred in the Swiss-owned 'English' Cemetery. His daughter died in Nice aged just 13 in 1846 (B3).

This cluster of enormous Yelverton tombs, whose family, like the Lagersvard's, is dying out, seem to have spent the rent proceeds from many starving Irish tenants on them. This is for the thirteen-year-old daughter, her mother now a widow and this her only child. She has died in Nice and her body was brought here to lie beside her father's.

He eventually became Major General, retiring from the Army in 1881. Given his military importance it would have been difficult for anyone to prevent the erection of the large plain marble cross which blocks the view of the Leighton tomb for Elizabeth Barrett Browning next to it.

B12-13I/ B8/ 737/
ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING/
JAMAICA/ENGLAND
/ E.B.B./ OB.1861// FRANCESCO GIOVANNOZZI FECE

I have written elsewhere on Elizabeth Barrett Browning, especially in the notes to our edition for Penguin of Aurora Leigh and Other Poems, but also in the essay on her death and burial, ebbdeath.html of which the following excerpt is relevant to this virtual e-book on our tombs.
In her last letter, which breaks off unfinished, Robert halting it, we witness exhaustion (Kenyon, II.448-450). 

In 1860, posing with her son Penini, she could still smile.

The terrible last photographs taken in Rome show her with emaciated deathhead, despite the crinoline and curls. In 1861, the year of her death, we see a prematurely aged Corinne in front of a painted backdrop of Rome's Colosseum (Arabella II.533). She was only fifty-five, though pretending to the even younger forty-five, and having packed into those years the writing of an epic poem longer than Homer's Odyssey, marriage, and a son. In May of that year, Hans Christian Andersen visited them, commenting on how ill Elizabeth looked (Arabella II.536). Her last poem, 'North and South', was about him, for the children played with Robert his Pied Piper of Hamelyn, processing through the rooms, and listened to Andersen's Ugly Duckling. But between these two dates, 1860-1861, is also the publication of her poem, 'A Musical Instrument'. Robert felt Elizabeth's poetic gift had ended, saying to her brother George in a letter written from Asolo, 22 October, 1889, 'the publication of "Aurora Leigh" preceded by five years the death of its writer - who was never likely to produce such another work', he being her literary agent during their marriage and following her death. But one of those last disparaged works was illustrated by Frederic Leighton for the Cornhill Magazine and this poem, 'A Musical Instrument', is of interest as a meta-poem, a statement about her poetic craft and her marriage. It is also a poem in which Elizabeth takes up a theme she has often used before, drawing on her classical and Christian learning, on the 'Great God Pan'. Pan, we recall, is that chimaera, part beast, part man, related to centaurs, satyrs and fauns, EBB speaking of Flush as 'Faunus', and echoing Milton on the death of the pagan Gods in 'The Morning of Christ's Nativity', both borrowing from Plutarch's 'De oraculorum defectu', in her 'Great Pan is Dead', and the Hawthornes noting that Robert is the Faun, Donatello, of the Marble Faun. This is Frederic Lord Leighton's fine illustration from the July 1860 Cornhill Magazine:

pan

And this is Elizabeth's poem, "A Musical Instrument" that it illustrates:

WhiteSilence      

What was he doing, the great god Pan,
  Down in the reeds by the river?
Spreading ruin and scattering ban,
Splashing and paddling with hoofs of a goat,
And breaking the golden lilies afloat
  With the dragon-fly on the river.

He tore out a reed, the great god Pan,
  From the deep cool bed of the river:
The limpid water turbidly ran,
And the broken lilies a-dying lay,
And the dragon-fly had fled away,
  Ere he brought it out from the river.

High on the shore sat the great god Pan
  While turbidly flowed the river;
And hacked and hewed as a great god can,
With his hard bleak steel at the patient reed,
Till there was not a sign of the leaf indeed
  To prove it fresh from the river.

He cut it short, did the great god Pan,
  (How tall it stood in the river!)
Then drew the pith, like the heart of man
Steadily from the outside ring,
And notched the poor dry empty thing
  In holes, as he sat by the river.

. . . 

Yet half a beast is the great god Pan,
  To laugh as he sits by the river,
Making a poet out of a man:
The true gods sigh for the cost and pain, -
For the reed which grows nevermore again
  As a reed with the reeds in the river.

The verse about cutting the reed evokes The Runaway Slave at Pilgrim Point and the slashing at the sugar cane by slaves with their machetes. Robert, at Bagni di Lucca, would similarly swim in the river, at the time she had shyly presented him her superlative love Sonnets - which he immediately published, the best-selling Sonnets from the Portuguese. In Pythagorean teaching there are two kinds of musical instruments, the harp, which is Reason, and the wind instrument, which is Nature, about the world of procreation and sexuality. Yet in this poem Elizabeth seems to be speaking of her life and its thwarted sexuality as a sacrifice - which is killing her - for the sake of her art. We recall after five pregnancies, four of which ended in miscarriages, sex had to be given up. The poem is very close indeed in its verbal echoes to her magnificent translation of Apuleius' 'Cupid and Psyche', this section where Pan rescues Psyche from her suicidal despair, telling her to love innocently. We recall Elizabeth  was a fine Classical and Hebrew scholar. But if so it is now re-written away from the Apuleian version towards that in Ovid, where Pan seeks to rape a nymph, who becomes a reed, which he then mutilates for his instrument upon which to play.
She leaves further clues about this poem's meaning. Thomas Adolphus Trollope in What I Remember (II. 175-179), his delightful gossipy book about the Anglo-Florentines, describes finding enclosed amongst Isa Blagden(B42)'s letters,

WhiteSilence

one from Mrs Browning which is of the highest interest.
. . .
'Dearest Isa, - Very gentle my critic is; I am glad I got him out of you. But tell dear Mr Trollope he is wrong nevertheless
. . . There is an inward reflection and refraction of the heats of life . . . doubling pains and pleasures, doubling therefore the motives (passions) of life. I have said something of this in Aurora Leigh. Also there is a passion for essential truth (as apprehended) and a necessity for speaking it out at all risks, inconvenient to personal peace. Add to this and much else the loss of the sweet unconscious cool privacy among the 'reeds' . . . which I care so much for - the loss of the privilege of being glad or sorry, ill or well, without a 'notice.' . . . Yes! and be sure, Isa, that the 'true gods sigh' and have reason to sigh, for the cost and pain of it; sigh only . . . don't haggle over the cost; don't grudge a crazia, but . . . sigh, sigh . . . while they pay honestly. . . .

But he is a beast up to the waist; yes, Mr Trollope, a beast. He is not a true god.
And I am neither god nor beast, if you please - only a
                                                                                                             Ba
Elizabeth's comment about the 'passion for essential truth (as apprehended) and a necessity for speaking it out at all risks, inconvenient to personal peace' is in reference to the Greek concept she well knew of parrhesia, the obligation to speak the truth, at personal risk, for the common good, so closely related to eleutheria, to freedom. This is the classic principle, discussed by I.F. Stone in The Trial of Socrates and by Michel Foucault in a lecture he gave at the University of Colorado, Boulder, shortly before his death, a concept lived today by Daniel Ellsberg, Julian Assange, Bradley Manning and Edward Snowden.
We can see that Frederic Leighton, friend to both Robert and Elizabeth, has brilliantly understood her poem in his engraving. When Leighton in the following year was to design Elizabeth's tomb he seems not to refer to Pan or to the other chimaera, but instead only to have it abound with harps, Greek, Hebrew and Christian, in reference to her great learning from her early childhood in Classics. the Bible and theology. Yet his first and Greek harp has two opposing faces, one serene, the other distorted, which at first I thought were meant for Tragedy and Comedy though I was uneasy about that identification. Then, one morning, we visited the Giardino Torrigiani in Florence, close to Casa Guidi, where Elizabeth would visit and which Leighton would have known from his student days at the Accademia delle Belle Arti, where Isa Blagden and Frederic Tennyson, the Poet Laureate's brother, would stay. And there is the god Pan, a bust upon a stele, one side of his face distorted, the other serene, the two profiles to be seen again on the Leighton harp. While on the stele are garlands about panpipes cut from a reed from a river bed.
Towards the end Elizabeth is deeply affected by her sister Henrietta's death from cancer, then that of Cavour's. Robert is wanting to see his father and sister, living in Paris (his father had lost a legal suit for breach of promise to marry a widow following the death of his wife, forcing the family to live on the Continent in exile for him to avoid prison). Elizabeth's doctor, the Pole, Gresanowsky, warns Robert in Rome that Elizabeth by no means may make this journey to Paris and Elizabeth writes sadly to Arabella, 11 June, with this news (II.536-538), concerned for its effect on Robert. She had hoped her brothers could come to meet them there. (One wonders why Robert's father and sister and Elizabeth's brothers and sister did not come to visit her at Casa Guidi, given her frailty.) Then, on 15 June, she again writes to Arabella, with more vivacity and a long discourse on Christianity, includingspeaking of her opposition to dogmas such as the XXXIX Articles of the Church of England (II.541-542). A Dissenter from the Church of England, she had already had her son baptised by Pastor Droin of the Swiss Evangelical Reformed Church in Florence.

Lilian Whiting would write Kate Field's biography, composing it from her letters, publishing it in Boston in 1900 as Kate Field: A Record. This is the eye-witness account Kate, the young American journalist, gave in two letters written to her aunt concerning Elizabeth Barrett Browning's death and burial:

                                                                                        Florence, June 29th, 1861
I am sick, sick at heart, for dear Mrs. Browning is dead. The news was as sudden as it is dreadful, for though she has been quite ill for a week past, yet her health has always been so feeble that I firmly believed she would rally as of yore. . .  Yesterday Mrs. Browning said that she felt better, read a little in the "Athenaeum" and saw Miss Blagden as late as eight o'clock in the evening, who left her with but little misgiving. This morning, at half-past four, she expired unconsciously to herself with the words, "It is beautiful," upon her lips. Poor Mr. Browning was entirely unprepared for the terrible blow. When she raised herself to pronounce her dying words wherein she expressed the glorious life which was opening upon her, he thought it was simply a movement premonitory to coughing. I have not seen him, but Miss Blagden, who is constantly with him, says he is completely prostrated with grief. The poor boy wanders about the house, sad, and disconsolate, hardly realising that his angel mother is no more. We went to the house the moment we heard of Mrs. Browning's death, but could be of no use. All that we did was to buy flowers and consecrate them by placing them around all that is left of one who was too pure to remain longer in this world. They have cut off all her hair, and the emaciated form was heart-rending to look upon. I almost regret that I have seen her in death, only that I do not wish to shun the house of mourning.  . . . I cannot help perceiving that Dr. Wilson, who was called in owing to the absence of Gresanowsky, and who is most forbidding in physiognomy and is said by some to be a humbug, has hastened Mrs. Browning's death by resorting to a violent practice which her weak body was thoroughly incapable of enduring. He began by frightening her, telling her what a fearful state her entire system was in, - a fine way to treat an imaginative person. Gresanowsky knew her constitution, and it does seem most unfortunate that he should have been absent. Since the medical murder of Cavour, I have begun to distrust all doctors in Italy. . . . (Whiting, 134-137)
I do not recall anywhere else it being said that not only were Pen's curls cut off but so also were Elizabeth's. That mirroring identity, so crucial to Elizabeth, shorn by 'funeral shears'. We remember the story of Elizabeth being upset one day because Robert had in a fit of fury cut off his own hair. Kate Field's narration opposes that given by Henry James in William Wetmore Story and His Friends (II.61-65), and by other contemporary accounts which have Robert saying at the time that Dr Wilson had prescribed too much morphine, Elizabeth in her drug euphoria (and not in the terror she would speak of in her letters of withdrawal when the drug-taking was momentarily forgotten during her travels) speaking of the bedroom curtains as hung with Hungarian colours (which are the same as Italian colours, the red, white and green we know Elizabeth to have used for the windows of Casa Guidi because the tricolour was banned by the Austrians). Dr Wilson was deeply opposed to laudanum usage and would not have overdosed her. See A109, Jean Elizabeth Wilson, AB5, Cornelia Loring. Rather it was Dr Gresanowsky of the fine bedside manner who enabled it. Lily Wilson, who had stopped the laudanum long enough to allow the successful pregnancy with Pen, had already been dismissed from her service. Robert, who had written the dramatic poem Paracelsus about laudanum's inventor, was knowledgeable about these opiate drugs, more so than was Elizabeth, and it was he who now administered the 'amreeta' drops to her. In all these accounts narrated by others of Elizabeth's dying their common source is Robert, the sole witness.
The body would have been brought from Casa Guidi to the 'English' Cemetery and laid on the huge cypress wood table built in 1860 at the same time as was the Gate House and its mortuary chapel, all using the cypress trees on the hill, these being still extant, though the chapel is now turned into a library.
Kate Field continues:
                                                                                                       Florence, July 1, 1861

I have been completely upset for the last three days, - the death of Mrs. Browning has unfitted me for doing anything. We have just returned from her funeral. We have seen all that is mortal of her buried in the beautiful Protestant burial-ground outside of Florence's walls, . . . The service was according to the Episcopal form. No discourse. Her life had been a sermon; she needed no other. It was agonizing to look on Mr. Browning - he seemed as though he could hardly stand, and his face expressed the most terrible grief. The poor boy stood beside him with tears in his eyes, and when I glanced from them to the pall where their loved one's remains lay, it seemed as though the sorrow was too much to bear. I yearned to go to Mr. Browning and weep with him that wept. The scene was made impressive in spite of the ministery; it was very short, and we were hurried away by Mr. Trollope. A lovely wreath of white flowers and a laurel wreath were placed upon the coffin. The funeral was managed by a friend of the Brownings, and so managed that no one knew anything about anything. Orders were given to the greatest confusion during the three days, and up to this morning I was told that no ladies were to be at the grave. However, Mr. Browning expressed a wish that Miss Blagden (B42) should be present and all other friends that desired to; therefore at the last moment I sent word to those whom I knew would wish to attend, and in this way there were sorrowing women to mourn for a great woman. The funeral would have been meagre without them. I thought that Mr. Landor (A29) ought to have been there, and had I known that the service would have been so short would have gone for him. The Storys (D108) came up from Leghorn; young Lytton, Mr. Trollope, the Powers (B32), and others paid their last tribute to her memory (Whiting, 137-138).

Let us turn to the entries concerning Elizabeth Barrett Browning's burial for more clues. As Custodian of the Swiss-owned 'English' Cemetery I kept asking whether there were any more documents concerning these burials, apart from one ledger compiled in 1877 of the list of burials in alphabetic order. Always it was said everything had been lost in the 1966 Florence Flood. Finally, these were handed over: two ledgers created contemporaneously, and a third listing burials in temporal order, created in 1873 from the previous records, like the alphabetical register, Plus further ledgers giving the burial expenses, and the duplicate receipts for these funeral expenses and the payments to the grave-digger, which I now share with you.

First the two Burial Registers
, neither of which give her status as married, nor her parentage, and not even her correct age:

I.

II. The duplicate volume of the above:


[Interestingly, Pen's baptismal certificate in the same Swiss Evangelical Church's Register tells us that it was performed on what would be almost her death date, 28 June, 1849, she dying 29 June, 1861, when he was twelve years old.]


III. The chronological listing of burials in the Swiss-owned so-called 'English' Cemetery, compiled in 1873 from the previous records:

The Alphabetical Register, compiled in 1877 from the previous records:

In all these documents Elizabeth's age is given incorrectly as '45', rather than '55'. We recall that she did not tell her husband she had visited the Battlefield of Waterloo immediately following Napoleon's defeat, though she describes a child loosed upon that same battlefield in Aurora Leigh. (The English Cemetery has fourteen participants in the Peninsula and Waterloo Battles against Napoleon, some of whom, like B98/ MAJOR FRANCIS CHARLES GREGORIE, were Elizabeth's friends.) Nor does her tomb give her birth date, only that of the year of her death, 'O+B+1861'. Her initials are given, 'E+E+B', but not her name, as if Robert penny-pinched on the payment to the stonemason, who would have charged for every letter. Another husband composed a lengthy poem at the death of his wife, F23/ CAROLINE (BENNETT) NAPIER, Sector F, and paid for each letter of it to be engraved on her tomb slab.

The Funeral Expenses
IV. Signor L. Gilli, Inspector of the Cemetery, is paid 271 paoli for the funeral of Elizabeth Barrett Browning out of which he pays the tax to the English Church of 113 paoli. Further payments are made to the English 'pasteur' of 108 paoli for conducting the service, and 10 paoli for his carriage. Yet further payments still are made for him to have crepe for his hat and gloves. But Elizabeth, clearly, from Pen's christening through her last letter to Arabella, would not have wanted to be buried by the Church of England's Rev O'Neill, but instead by the 'pasteur' of the Swiss Evangelical Reformed Church, Charles Berthoud. Apart from a pauper funeral this is the lowest amount paid at this time for an adult funeral. Those of Charlotte, Countess of Strathmore and Kinghorn (E44
), and of Theodore Parker (D108), cost more than a 1000 paoli each. The Trollopes, nine years earlier, had paid 572 paoli for a first class funeral for their favourite maid Elizabeth Shinner (C71) . 

V. Then Ferdinando Giorgi, Master Mason, is paid a total of 760 lire toscani from Signor L. Gilli for the burial of 16 persons, the first of which is #737, Elizabeth Barrett Browning's.

Normally, Ferdinando Giorgi is paid 45 Tuscan lire a burial. He gets 90 Tuscan Paoli on 26/9/61 for EBB's burial, number #737, because he had to dig two graves. Which means the Swiss Evangelical Church this time only got 68 Paoli, less than the amount of a pauper's burial, which is 110 Paoli. Then the bill came for the carriage for the coffin from Luigi Pagliai at 32 Paoli, leaving the Swiss Church with just 36 Paoli.
I puzzled over this payment for the digging of two graves. Had Robert had one dug for himself for when his time came? Had another body been found in it while digging the first? Then I found the answer to this question.

Mrs Sutherland Orr in Life and Letters of Robert Browning tells us that in September of 1861, writing from St.-Enogat, near Dinard, where he is staying with his father and sister, two months after Elizabeth's burial, Robert Browning requests Isa Blagden to arrange moving his wife's body from one grave to another, as this is required for the subsequent placing of the monument designed by Leighton, just the same as had been done for A3/ ROBINA (WILSON) CATANI CAVALCANTI and would be for A111/ HARRIET FRANKES (WEBSTER) PELLEW:
. . . Isa, may I ask you one favour? Will you, whenever these dreadful preliminaries, the provisional removement, etc., when they are proceeded with - will you do -- all you can - suggest every regard to decency and proper feeling of the persons concerned? I have a horror of that man of the graveyard [Ferdinand Giorgi], and needless publicity and exposure - I rely on you, dearest friend of ours, to at least lend us your influence when the time shall come - a word may be invaluable. If there is any show made, or gratification of strangers' curiosity, far better that I had left the turf untouched. These things occur through sheer thoughtlessess, carelessness, not anything worse, but the effect is irreparable. I won't think of it - now - at least . . . (Orr, 395-396; McAleer, 175, dates this letter as of 19 September 1863, as from Ste Marie, Pornic, however, the receipt clearly indicates the revised burial, the twice-digging of graves, was carried out almost immediately in 1861).
Earlier, Elizabeth had noted Robert's great fear of cemeteries. He had refused, for instance, to go to the funeral and burial of his first cousin James Silverthorne, the witness at their wedding (Arabella I.490-91,494). Mrs Orr similarly observes this of Robert and remarks of this letter: 'The dread expressed in this letter . . . connects itself with an habitual aversion for the paraphernalia of death, which was a marked peculiarity of Mr Browning's nature' (366-367), noting that he never visited her grave. Nathaniel Hawthorne modeled the character of Donatello in The Marble Faun on Robert Browning and likewise vividly described his mirroring character's horror of death.
Immediately after the funeral, Robert commissioned the painting by Giorgio Mignaty of the Salone at Casa Guidi as it was when she died, on finding the room could not be photographed, perhaps by Longworth Powers (who would later photograph the tomb), perhaps by the Fratelli Alinari.



We recall that two of the Mignaty children,
E131DEMETRIO FREDERICK MIGNATY and E130/ ELENA MIGNATY, are buried in the English Cemetery, Demetrio's inscription in Greek,

and that the head of the beautiful but not faithful Signora Mignaty was model for B32/ HIRAM POWERS ' Greek Slave about which Elizabeth wrote her powerful anti-slavery sonnet from which we take the title of this book, 'Thunders of White Silence'.

The American sculptor B32/ HIRAM POWERS, who had been present with his wife Elizabeth at Elizabeth Barrett Browning's funeral, is also buried in the English Cemetery, while Michele Gordigiani, who painted the portraits of Elizabeth and Robert and likewise that of Camille Cavour, whose death on June 6th  Elizabeth so deeply mourned,


1858

had his studio just across the street, his descendant, Francesca Gordigiani, still living there.
Robert Browning, who sculpted and who wrote poetry on the ordering of tombs, who was himself indulging in sculpture rather than poetry at the end of their marriage, accepted Frederic Leighton's offer to design Elizabeth's tomb, Count Cottrell having Francesco Giovannozzi carry it out in Browning's and Leighton's absence. Frederic Leighton had studied at the Accademia di Belle Arti and would become President of the Royal Academy. His earliest triumph had been to paint what Elizabeth had already described in Casa Guidi Windows, published in 1851, the 'Procession of Cimabue's Madonna from Borgo Allegri to Santa Maria Novella', in 1854, the huge canvas being purchased by Queen Victoria when he was all of twenty-four.


Frederic Leighton, Cimabue's Madonna


Frederic Leighton, Self Portrait, Uffizi

Leighton, we noted, also illustrated Elizabeth's final poem to Pan, 'A Musical Instrument', when it was published in the Cornhill Magazine in 1860 (175-179), the year before her death. Leighton likewise illustrated George Eliot's Romola, including the despicable Tito's late return home to her, which both author and artist set in the Via dei Bardi house of Elizabeth's friend, Seymour Kirkup:

Robert, who similarly often went out at night, leaving Elizabeth at home, after the initial years of marital - and sexual - bliss, immediately following the funeral, left Florence with young Pen, accompanied by B42/ ISABELLA BLAGDEN. He proceeded to write The Ring and the Book, the Aretine and Roman trial account in verse about spousal abuse and murder, as if his own confession: with Caponsacchi as if Robert being Elizabeth's rescuer from the bondage of Wimpole Street, and with Franceschini as if Robert, who as husband constantly quarrelled publicly with his wife over politics, over spiritualism, over their son, who lied to her saying the Gabinetto Vieusseux was forbidden to women, who held the purse strings of EBB's inheritances and her earnings, who lately carefully administered her laudanum, and who, as the author of Paracelsus, the inventor of laudanum, may have knowingly overdosed her, while blaming Dr Wilson for doing so. If so, it is a kind of mercy killing, for he carefully explains to everyone that she is unaware that she is dying, only that she is in a state of euphoria from the drug. She does not die hemorrhaging from the lungs with tuberculosis.

Leighton's tomb for Elizabeth is a magnificent monument. But Robert never saw it, never returned again to Florence, though Pen did, living in the Torre di Antella, seeking to make Casa Guidi a museum, searching out memorabilia of his parents, which at his death were all dispersed in auction sales. Leighton did return to Florence and did see the work in progress, and was deeply angered by the changes made to his design by Francesco Giovannozzi and approved of by Count Cotttrell. Lilian Whiting's biography of Kate Field, the young American writer who had been present at that funeral, tells us that on Christmas Day, 1864, nearly three and a half years later than the funeral,
Mrs Browning's monument has not yet been erected, but will shortly be so. Leighton, who was intrusted by Mr. Browning with the design, was exceedingly and very reasonably angry on coming here in the autumn to superintend the erection of the monument, to find that the sculptor had most unwarrantably changed divers parts of the design. Some of these departures from his plan Leighton insisted on having restored, and this has led to considerable delay. And I should fear that the monument, when it is put up, will not be wholly satisfactory to Mr. Browning or Mr. Leighton (Whiting, 157).
Count Cottrell, whose title was given to him for his services as Chamberlain by the Grand Duke of Lucca, had refused to go to the English Cemetery at the burial of one of his children there, Carlo Lodovico, B102/ CHARLES LEWIS COTTRELL, Robert exceptionally officiating for him as chief mourner (Arabella, II.322-323). In some of the earlier Letters to Arabella the relations between the Cottrells and the Brownings became decidedly strained, for Mary Trepsack had had her life savings conned from her and lost in a bankruptcy by Cottrell relatives, partly through Robert's actions, Elizabeth desperately trying to get reparations paid to her in compensation while obeying Robert in keeping secret from her brothers his involvement in the case (Arabella I.268-269, 271-272, 286, 305, 311, 349-350). Mary Trepsack was the beloved freed slave in the Barrett Moulton Barrett entourage who had paid for the publication of Elizabeth's second magnum opus, The Essay on Mind, in 1826; Elizabeth's first magnum opus, The Battle of Marathon, begun when she was eleven, having been privately printed by her father in 1820. Robert now put Count Cottrell in charge of overseeing his wife's tomb in Florence. He had already defied her in giving her a Church of England funeral, bilking the Swiss Evangelical Reformed Church.
Browning writes, in 1866, to George Moulton-Barrett, Elizabeth's younger and favourite brother (284-5):
I feel very grateful indeed for your letter, and all the kindness it is replete with. For the monument, I am simply rejoiced that you like it. You know it was just what I was able to accomplish in that direction, and no more: I meant, - that had it been of pure gold it would have gone no farther in the way of being a fit offering, - and on the other hand, if my circumstances had only allowed me to put up a wooden cross, that would have sufficed. But I was fortunate in the sympathy of Leighton, and so, I hope, have been able perhaps to manage that the little which is done, is on the whole well done. I could not be on the spot and care for the execution personally - and mistakes were made at first which have been rectified since: but, by the photographs, I judge that Leighton's work is adequately rendered, - and we must be content.
Browning writes again, in 1875, to George Moulton-Barrett (298), who has been to see the tomb in Florence, noting in a letter to Robert that it was already grimed and needing care (Sutherland Orr, 367-68):
You will certainly have wondered at the delay in replying to your kind letter: it was occasioned by the necessity of consulting with Leighton about the proper course to take in a matter which concerned him so much. I am deeply obliged to you for informing me about what I might else have long remained in ignorance; and the particulars of the damage, as well as the estimates of needful repair & expenditure are just what I should have desired. I wish every fit measure to be taken, and leave the whole in your most capable hands: but there is this difficulty, - Leighton is very averse to the destruction of his design by the substitution of black marble: he would prefer the renewal of the old work, even if one needs to begin again in another eleven years. Cannot this be managed? I wish it were as easy to replace the coarse nature of the relic-mongers by some more human and decent stuff, but that is impossible. Would a more effectual railing be any use? or would a cover, such as you mention as being made for the Demidoff monument, answer the purpose here? You have such an advantage over me who never saw the Tomb, that I accept your judgment, whatever it may be. Leighton said he would prefer letting the ornaments quite go, in process of time, and then renewing them - that is, prefer this to substituting the black stripe.
Elizabeth's absence from her own tomb is strange. Though there are many tombs with portrait medallions: A64/ GEORGE AUGUSTUS WALLIS by Aristodemos Costoli, A15/ ANNE SUSANNA (LLOYD) HORNER by Francesco Jerace; AB7/ INA BOSS SAULTER, by Ettore Ximenes; B4/ ELENA NIKITICNA DIK, NATA AKZYNOVA by Fyodor Fyodorovitsch Kamensky; C3/ THOMAS SOUTHWOOD SMITH by Joel T. Hart; D108/ THEODORE PARKER by William Wetmore Story; D127/ JAMES ROBERTS, by Joel T. Hart?; E12/ JAMES LORIMER GRAHAM, JR by Launt Thompson; E9/ WALTER KENNEDY LAWRIE by Pietro Bazzanti, F27/ PHILIPPINA (SIMONS) CIAMPI, Joel T. Hart?, and two portrait busts: B23/ PROFESSORE CESARE PAGANINI by Emilio Zocchi, C106/ JEAN DAVID MARC GONIN by Pietro Bazzzanti), there is no recognizable medallion portrait of Elizabeth Barrett Browning, only an ideal figure of Poesy, and we learn from Robert's letter from the Athenaeum Club, January 19, 1863, to B42/ ISABELLA BLAGDEN, that the Italians, through Cottrell, sought to pre-empt Leighton's design, and that Robert himself decided against having her portrait,

I have determined at last that the central medallion shall be appropriated, not to a Portrait, but to an ideal head of 'Poetry': a portrait proves to be impossible, - one, that is, which we would accept: there is nothing to be done but submit to a necessity - for any playing with the truth there would be hateful to me (185-186),



and then in Robert's letter to Frederic Leighton, August 20, 1863, that he had sent portraits of Elizabeth to him. Finally he writes to Isa, October 19, 1864, about Leighton's explosion concerning the badness of the execution, and speaking of the portrait medallion as altered, particularly as to the hair, to falsely 'better' it.


It was fortunate indeed that I was saved from the addition to my annoyances which I should have had to bear had my journey been to Florence. Leighton writes to me that nothing can be more impudently bad than the execution of his designs - there has been no pretence at imitating some of them - and the four (sic., for six) capitals of the columns will have to be sawn off and carved afresh, - also two of the medallions have to be cut out and replaced - as infamous: while the third 'though indeed detestable is not quite irremediable". The Profile is "less slovenly than the rest", though open to many objections - "the hair, with that designing of which I took great pains, is entirely different: the fellow had the coolness to say that he thought I had probably done the thing hastily without nature, and that he had put up a plait, and done the thing afresh himself (if you could see it!) - also, in the ear, "ho cercato di migliorare!" he added that he had obtained from Cavalier Mathas [architect of the façade of Santa Croce] and Count Cottrell the sanction to improve these parts of the work - let us hope there is no truth in this. Cottrell says he saw all the criticism I make, himself - but that he thought it better to leave them to me to make, as the mischief was irremediable"- On the contrary, Cottrell wrote to me that it was "extremely well-executed", - and as he paid up the last instalment, though not due till the work was really erected, I have no sort of remedy. Don't say one word about this - I won't have any wrangling over - literally - the grave (194-195).

One can see in three of the photographs taken by the son of Hiram Powers (B32), Longworth Powers, preserved in the Gabinetto Vieusseux, the various stages of the tomb's long drawn out building, first the white marble base, then the columns, then the whole.

Leighton had other errors changed, but Robert connived at the false portrait medallion on the most visible part of the tomb. Not only is Elizabeth's name absent from her tomb, but so also is Frederic Leighton's, while 'FRANCESCO.GIOVANNOZZI.FECE' in great capitals is sculpted onto its base. It is a tomb to which the 'Ba', the Soul, according to the Egyptian Book of the Dead, lacking image or name, would be unable to return. A double dying, a double murdering. One wonders who paid for the tomb? Was it Browning? Or Leighton, so deeply disturbed that his honouring of her was thus countermanded into the oblivion of her name and of her image.

However, it seems from sketches in the Royal Academy's Library that Andrew Potter has so kindly sent me that Leighton conceived it not as a classical sarcophagus so much as a medieval pilgrim tomb with space under it for pilgrims to enter, like that of Edward the Confessor's Tomb in Westminster Abbey. An aside: When Elizabeth was preparing herself for the elopement with Robert, she dared to go outside, to take walks, and on one of them visited Westminster Abbey and its Poets' Corner where her husband would come to be buried apart from her. This is how she described it, 31 July, 1846:

How grand - how solemn! Time itself seemed turned to stone there! . . . we stood where the poets were laid - oh, it is very fine - better than Laureateships and pensions. Do you remember what is written on Spenser's monument - 'Here lyeth, in expectation of the second coming of Jesus Christ, . . Edmond Spenser, having given proof of his divine spirit in his poems'.

   

I found this photograph placed on EBB's tomb, 5/10/2011, by Jan Taylor who wrote on the back of it: 'This quest of mine started when I watched a film called The Barretts of Wimpole Street. It turned out to be a wonderful love story between two poets, Elizabeth Barrett and Robert Browning, whereupon they eloped to Florence and lived there until Elizabeth Barrett Browning died, and was buried in Florence. Robert Browning, however, returned to London where he is buried in Poet's Corner in Wetminster Abbey. I felt saddened to hear they were buried apart, although it is an honour to be buried in Poet's Corner. I would like to give up the honour for love. I took this photograph of Robert Browning's resting place and travelled to Florence to place it on Elizabeth's grave'.



We find indeed that Leighton had intended a more true portrait on the tomb as he originally conceived it, these drawings being supplied by the Leighton House Museum from those in the Victoria and Albert Museum (Leighton even shows a togaed Robert approaching it, remembing the scene where Romney and Aurora in Aurora Leigh speak of the tomb at the Appian Way, 'Siste, Viator!')


We remember that Emily Dickinson, America's greatest poet, treasured a postcard of this tomb, and wrote of it and of Aurora Leigh's use of the Appian Way, in her lyric, 'The soul selects her own society, Then shuts the door; On her divine majority, obtrude no more. Unmoved she notes the chariot's pausing At her low gate; Unmoved, an emperor is kneeling Upon her mat. I've known her from an ample nation Choose one, Then shut the valves of her attention Like stone'. She also wrote of Elizabeth Barrett Browning's final volume (312):

WhiteSilence

I will now give comments concerning the Brownings from William Holman Hunt, PreRaphaelitism and the PreRaphaelite Brotherhood, pp. 96-96:

When I returned to town from Oxford, I found the Brownings had come to London, and soon Gabriel and I were invited to spend the evening with them. When the appointed hour approached I had a return of Syrian ague upon me, but this was not enough to prevent me from greeting the two poets; both were extremely unaffected and genial.
Browning was taller than he had been described to me, perhaps about five feet six, robust and hearty in his tone of interest in all questions discussed, but I felt some self-reproach in so faintly recognising in him the stamp of a man as elevated above his fellows as his noblest poems had proved him to be. Mrs. Browning was small and very fragile; she betrayed nervous anxiety in her eager manner, so that the supersensitive tenour of her poems seemed fitly embodied in her. Her hair was brought forward and fell in ringlets on her face in a manner quite out of fashion, and thus helped to make one feel that she disregarded all changes of mode since her youth. The special interest of the evening was the production of a poem by their son, aged about six, the subject Leighton's picture of “Orpheus and Eurydice.” It was, even taking the child's parentage into consideration, a wonderful example of precocity. Gabriel seemed throughout the evening over apt to break in with jocular interruption to the conversation, as though claiming proprietorship in the company present; it was easy to yield to him in this whim, since it happened that we were all his debtors for the first knowledge of the works of our new friends.
Browning was constantly there, being deeply interested in art, an interest which, it was said, he had shown several years before by drawing in the Schools at Rome. After the death of Mrs. Browning his devoted sister became the mistress of his house, and they made it the anxiety of their life to watch the prospects of the son. For a time all seemed uncertain about “Pen's” proclivities, but one day when I called upon the poet, in Bloomfield Terrace he showed me a group of still life, composed of a human skull and accessories, which the son had spontaneously painted. The assurance that “Pen” would take to painting was a great joy to his father, and he consulted me earnestly as to the course to be followed, but on a subsequent occasion he told me that he had been advised to send him to study in Belgium. After a few seasons some examples of
page: 270
his son's work were seen in the Grosvenor Gallery, when the poet expressed great gratification at any recognition that they gained. By this date Browning was an honoured celebrity. Some of his original champions were confessedly displeased in that he seemed to approve the fashionable admiration of London society rather than their own, and words were wafted about expressing indifference to his later poems. He spoke to me of a visit he had made to the National Gallery after a prolonged absence abroad, and of his close attention to the “Dead Knight” by Velasquez—he said it had struck him then with a weird astonishment in that it was an illustration of the initial scene of his poem of “Childe Roland” and that Velasquez had anticipated his vision. (The title now given to the picture is changed.) Once when I was talking to the poet I chanced to mention the name of Rossetti; he suddenly flamed up, saying, “That is a man I will never forgive; he is unpardonable.” I replied: “Certainly I cannot pose as one of his ‘ idolaters’ but one of his great merits in my eyes is that he was the first who introduced me to your poetry, and that was thirty years ago.” But Browning was still irate, declaring that he had no patience with him, and would never overlook his insolence. I did not inquire further about the exact cause of offence. It is possible that Rossetti, originally nearly as great an enthusiast for Mrs. Browning as for the poet himself, had recently uttered something derogatory to her as
page: 271
page: 272 well as to the poet, and his verdict that “Browning and poetry had parted company for ever” could scarcely have escaped the poet's ear.

Browning's and Leighton's scoffing, angry letters were not the only ones about the tomb. In the Cemetery's archives is the following sheaf of letters:

In an earlier paper, I lamented the lack of the major symbol Elizabeth and Robert shared in their poetry on her tomb, that of the pomegranate. We have now planted a pomegranate beside it that came from the Elizabeth's beloved Giardino Torregiani and we have rectified the lack of her name with a stele by the tomb. Its marble was crumbling away into sugar and it was begrimed. I raised €3000,00 for its consolidation and cleaning, largely from Moulton-Barrett relatives, and the Comune has now twice honoured Elizabeth with laurel wreaths, once even with the Gonfalone, thanks to Eugenio Giani, Presidente del Consiglio Comunale.

 

     

    

Likewise we have sought to correct the absence of her poetry on her tomb with its presence on the walls of the Gatehouse's arch, unveiled by Dr Stephen Prickett at our conference with the Gabinetto Vieusseux on the 'English' Cemetery in 2004.

// FANNY/ THE WIFE OF/ W. HOLMAN HUNT/ DIED AT FLORENCE DEC 20 1866/ IN THE FIRST YEAR OF HER MARRIAGE

Five years later than Elizabeth's burial another grieving husband himself sculpted his wife's tomb up in Fiesole to be beside that of Elizabeth. Fanny, wife to Holman Hunt, died in Florence following childbirth. Their child, Cyril Benoni Hunt (Benoni, 'son of sorrow' being name of the dying Rachel's child in Genesis), was born at via Montebello, 22, baptised by Rev Tottenham the day of his birth, who registered it two months later, eight days after his mother's death. A silver chalice and later a silver patten in their names eventually came to St Mark's English Church from the earlier Holy Trinity Church in Florence.

HOLMAN-HUNT

He created for her an ark, complete with dove and olive branch doing double duty as a pelican in its piety, and adorned with lilies (copied from those on Elizabeth's tomb), which forever floats on waves sculpted from marble. On it he placed the three scriptural passages above from Isaiah, the Gospels and the Song of Solomon, one of these echoing Elizabeth Barrett Browning's Sonnet XXVII to her husband, within Florentine triangled roundels. One can learn the context from his autobiographical study of the PreRaphaelites:

William Holman Hunt, PreRaphaelitism and the PreRaphaelite Brotherhood

There had been substantial reasons for my long delay in returning to the East, I had to accept the lesson of my experiences with the Temple

picture and come to the conclusion that I must not go without sufficient funds to bring my new picture to a complete end.
page: 202 
My wife and I started in August 1866 for the East. At Marseilles, where I was intending to take the boat to Alexandria, I learnt that quarantine was established on account of the cholera, but as the secretary of the “P. and O.” assured me that the next departing boat would probably be allowed to enter Alexandria with a clean bill of health, we waited for this. In the meantime there were mournful crowds in the streets following the funeral processions, and the people brought out their furniture, making bonfires of it after dark. The next steamer from Egypt brought news that no boat from Marseilles would yet be allowed to enter. Accordingly we proceeded over the Maritime Alps for Leghorn, whence we heard it was possible to reach Egypt via Malta. We rested a night at Florence, intending to continue our journey the next morning, but learning that intercourse with Egypt was stopped, we had no choice for the present but to remain in Florence.
On December 20th, 1866, my wife died and my dear friends Spencer Stanhope (B10) and his wife took charge of my motherless son under their roof for a time. Necessitous labours were now my blessings. I remained in Florence to put up a monument to my wife (B9), and I at once set to work on a design of “Isabella mourning over her Basil Pot.” I took a studio, the best I could find, and started on the work. In September of the next year I returned to England with my child. My picture was bought by Gambart and exhibited by itself, and an engraving of it was made by Blanchard.



When at Fiesole, I painted a damsel as a Tuscan straw-plaiter of the type of gentle features peculiar to the cities of the Apennines

As the marble carver now made it clear that his chiselling of the monument to my wife would never be brought to a conclusion, I took up his tools and finished the work, to the best of my power and departed from the city of flowers, which had been so sad a resting-place to me. Occasionally I made hasty sketches for my infant son at home; notwithstanding their slightness they may stand as records of passing interest.

He also discussed the Brownings at length (see passages given above), and he chose to place his wife's tomb next to Robert's wife, pages. 96-96. He then married his wife's sister, Edith, abroad, as this was forbidden in the Church of England's Table of Kindred and Affinity, so that she could raise Cyril Benoni.

John Roddam Spencer Stanhope (1829-1908), another of the PreRaphaelite Brethren, came to live in Florence because of his asthma, residing at Villa Nuti (Villino Strozzi) at Bellosguardo with his wife and daughter, having visited the city previously. Maquay's diary notes he fails to introduce Frederic Leighton to him.

The year following that in which the Spencer Stanhopes had cared for the Hunts' now motherless child, Cyril Benoni Hunt, they lost their own seven-year-old daughter, Mary Spencer Stanhope, and the artist father likewise sculpted her tomb. The same shape of her tomb recurs in his own tomb, sculpted by himself, at the Allori, and in the plaques in the churches commemorating him in Florence and in Yorkshire. He helped build Holy Trinity, selling a Botticelli to pay for the construction of its Gothic tower, and later frescoed the walls and ceilings of St Mark's English Church. He painted Mary, his daughter, as if she had lived to be 17, not 7, as Psyche to his Charon, a work now owned by Andrew Lloyd Webber. This is a pattern we also see with the depictions in marble by Bazzanti as if 18, and by Solomon Counis, as if 22 of Jean David Marc Gonin (C106) who had died at 15 years old. Nic Peeters and Judy Oberhausen gave a paper on this family at our third City and Book international conference in Florence, gimel.html and together we visited Bellosguardo's Villa Nutti.Then we read Elizabeth Barrett Browning's translation of Apuleius' 'Cupid and Psyche' at the Cemetery's columned cross at the celebration for the National Archeological Museum's Exhibition, 'Egyptian Motifs in the English Cemetery', our Italian actress dressed as Stanhope's Psyche, photograph above: http://piazzaledonatello.blogspot.it/2006_09_01_archive.html, apuleius.html, egyptian.html

William Holman Hunt, PreRaphaelitism and the PreRaphaelite Brotherhood, p. 104-105:
Every time I visited Oxford I heard more of the sensation Rossetti was making there. Ruskin was taking the responsibility of directing the architect Woodward, who, with his partner Deane, was engaged in building the new Museum, and it was still said that Rossetti would return to Oxford to paint some of the walls. But as the building was not yet ready, and the rooms of the Union built by the same architects were advanced to the stage at which the bare walls showed temptingly smooth and white, Rossetti had volunteered to paint upon them the story of King Arthur with no other charge but for the materials. It was in character with Rossetti's sanguine enthusiasm that he induced many undergraduates, with little or no previous training, to undertake to cover certain spaces. Hungerford Pollen, Spencer Stanhope, Edward Burne-Jones and William Morris, were persuaded to take part in the work, Stanhope alone having had any preliminary training. I saw my name inscribed on a fine blank panel, and nothing would have delighted me more than to have contributed my share to the decorations, but I had too many stronger claims to allow me to undertake this mural work. Some of those connected with the Council of the Union, it was reported, saw little to be grateful for in the generosity of the young decorators, and expressed themselves discourteously; perhaps it was this, coming to Rossetti's ears, that disenchanted him with his design, for he left it abruptly half-finished and returned to town, refusing all allurements of Ruskin and others to carry it further. Arthur Hughes, Val Prinsep, and some years later William Rivière, assisted by his son, took part in the work. Without previous experience of wall-painting, and disregarding the character of the pigments, the work of the group was doomed to change and perish speedily, and little of it now remains visible. Rossetti had lighted upon remarkable undergraduates of artistic though undeveloped genius, to which choice band was added Swinburne'.

Kim Björklund notes that the Count Mannerheim's cousin, the Finnish Aurora Karamzin, had married a Demidoff. This explains why the Count is a family guest of the Prince Demidoff in San Donato's eponymous villa. He is the uncle of  Marshall Gustav Mannerheim. Olga Nordenstam, also buried here, F26,  is the sister of Sofia Nordenstam who married the Count's brother, Count Carl Robert Mannerheim, and thus became the step-mother of the famous Finnish Marshall and President of Finland, Baron Gustav Mannerheim (Wikipedia). For Count Mannerheim's witty drawings see http://www.hel2.fi/kaumuseo/helsinkiinframes/hakasalmi/mannerheim_1.html.

Sir Grenville Temple, 9th Baronet, was born at Stowe, Buckinghamshire. His father was Consul General to the United States, marrying Elizabeth Bowdoin, the daughter of the Governor of Massachusetts, and he in turn married an American, Elizabeth Watson, his brother taking the name Bowdoin-Temple, for which see his nieces Laura (E141), Princess Pandolfina, and Christina Bowdoin-Temple (E1) in Sector E. He married a second time without issue. His son, Sir Grenville Temple, the 10th Baronet, is present at his father's burial, and will publish Travels in in Greece and Turkey and the Mediterranean, 1843, with fine illustrations. Bowdoin College is connected with this family.

These are later post-1877 burials of cinerary urns. We learn from a ship's passenger list that the daughter sailed once to America. The family is divided between Schleswig-Holstein and Denmark and have a magnificent castle. In a terrible wind storm an ancient cypress dominoed several others in the Cemetery and this tomb was catapaulted, its urns scattered and opened. I carefully replaced the ashes in them, and in one was a beautiful bronze crucifix (forbidden by the cemetery's rules) on red velvet that I carefully replaced; when I returned half an hour later it was to find yet another great branch had fallen on the spot where I had been standing. I had to keep the urns of the Baron, the Baronin and the Baronesse in my cell until the main tomb could be righted two weeks later. Such are the occupational hazards of being the 'Island of the Dead''s custodian!

He is the last descendant of his noble Swedish family, and has served in the Swedish and Norwegian Legation during the reigns of four Swedish monarchs and the Revolutions in Europe. With him, much later, is buried his wife Sophie Hugues, who had already been sculpted on the tomb as sadly taking leave of her husband, both in classical garb. Nearby is the tomb of B92/ AURORE (GRÅBERG DE HEMSO) ECKHARDT DURCKHEIM MONTMARTIN, the adopted daughter of Brigitte Hugues, Sophie Hugues's sister. The Lagersvard tomb is sculpted by the Swedish sculptor, Johan Niklas Bystrom, who worked in Rome with the Icelandic Danish sculptor, Bertel Thorvaldsen (Þorvaldsson). Within an ourobouros (a serpent devouring its tail, for eternity) is a bee. Kelly Searsmith wrote, noting that the bee is the Egyptian hieroglyph for royalty, and that Pliny described bee hives being floated down the Nile so they could pollinate crops. (Monsanto pesticides kill bees.) Anna Porcinai sent a van-load of lavender plants which the Roma planted and now the cemetery is filled with contented bees, pollinating busily amongst these fragrant bushes. The Cemetery was subject to thirty years of weed-killer usage and no birds sang. When we stopped it six years ago, the blackbirds took to singing gloriously. Was the marble for Lagersvard's tomb transported from Carrara to Rome, by way of Livorno, then back again to Tuscany?

HE DIED AT FLORENCE JULY 25 1835 IN THE 54TH YEAR OF HIS AGE AND IS BURIED IN THE PROTESTANT CEMETERY

James Bourne died unmarried, but the collateral heir, another James Bourne, became baronet of Heathfield and M.P., remembering his benefator 42 years later. The Bournes were from a Liverpool family whose wealth derived from being merchants with interests in the timber and iron trades, salt and coal mining, canals and railways: http://www.fitzwalter.com/afh/Bourne/bournhist1.html#af00002. Thus a connection between Horace Hall (D32CAV. ORAZIO KLEIBER HALL/ HORACE HALL) and his mine and James Bourne is logical, and both are remembered at the Anglican Holy Trinity (now Waldensian) church in Florence.

His publication is on teaching music: Et fiat lux in caos! - Nuova teoria musicale vera, normale, ossia radicale riforma ortografica-grammaticale degli elementi della musica basati sulla Rigata meloplastico cavata dalla tastiera del pianoforte. Opera dedicata ai signori professori di musica da Cesare Paganini di Mantova. Firenze, tip. italiana Fr. Martini, 1865 - in 8°, di pag. 59, con undici tavole d'esempi nel fine. His tomb is sculpted by Emilio Zocchi, famed for sculpting the young Michelangelo sculpting the head of a faun. Zocchi shows Professor Paganini as heavily bearded. The signature to the piece was intact in the Belle Arti schedatura 1993-1997 and its photograph. The bust was discovered in 2000 in pieces beneath its column, the victim of vandals and addicts who greatly damaged this section of the cemetery 1997-2000. It was carefully restored first by Professor Frizzi and then by Daniel-Claudiu Dumitrescu working under the supervision of Alberto Casciani.

B18D/ B24/ 1171/ MARY [KYD] DE DORNBERG/ ENGLAND/ MARY DE DORNBERG/ NEE KYD/ DECEDEE LE 30 MAI 1872/ AGEE DE 27 ANS

Mary Kyd's father, Lieutenant General Alexander Kyd of the Bengal Engineers, was a relative of the Lt. General Robert Kyd who founded the Botanical Gardens in Calcutta. William de Dornberg, who participated with the British against Napoleon, was pensioned in 1831, thus is too early to be her husband, perhaps her father-in-law. Wikipedia: 'Robert Kyd made a request in his will that he be buried without any religious ceremony in the botanical garden that he founded (Acharya Jagadish Chandra Bose Indian Botanic Garden), but was instead interred in South Park Street Cemetery. He also left behind specific payments to be made to his native servants "Rajemahl Missah ... in retribution for the unsuitable education given to him, entailing separation from his native soil and kindred. To the other native known by the name of George, in reparation of the injury done him by his former master, in alienating him from his tribe (understood Rajpoot), converting him to Christianity, and secluding him from all future connection with his family, the monthly sum of six rupees during his life; to both on condition of their continuing to serve Major Alexander Kyd during his residence in India. . ." Major Alexander Kyd was a relative of Robert and was the father of James Kyd (1786-1836) and his brother, also a Robert Kyd (d. 1825), who became shipbuilders. Kyd street and the locality Kidderpore derive their names from this family'. There seem to be further mixed-race Alexander Kyds, who settled in Austria, one of whom may be this lady's father. She is thus more cosmopolitan than she is English.

His father, Joseph Watson founded Watson Burton's in 1811 at Gateshead on Tyne. His son, Joseph married, as engineer, of the firm of Clarke, Watson and Gurney, Victoria Engine Works, Gateshead, Lucy Fenwick (1838-1918, youngest daughter of William Fenwick, of The Cottage, Stanhope) at Newcastle Friends' meeting house. Later his brother writes of him: 'Then my brother Joe had been very poorly for some time. It was evident that his chest was affected, and Charley Pease and his wife were going up the Nile, and offered to take him with them in their Dahabieh and we hoped that it would do him great good. The last letters were most encouraging and then there came one from Alexandria which showed that he was laid up there in a very dangerous state. I at once told my father that I would go out and meet him at Naples. He had requested in his letter that someone might meet him. I went out to Naples and was there for twelve days but I never got a letter or a telegram from him or home or anything of the kind, and I was coming away from Naples in despair when I saw a ship I had not known of coming into the bay, and he was on it. He had been very ill, and a young fellow who had met him had tried to get him a first class passage to Naples, but finding that it was impossible, had given up his own first class cabin and got a second berth second class, and brought him through and looked after him. The doctor I consulted said at once that he was dying, and that I could not move him at all, but I managed to take him about a little in the splendid weather, and he was much interested in everything that he saw though he was very weak. I got him on to Rome with great difficulty. After two or three days in Rome I took him on to Florence. That was then a terrible journey of fifteen hours, and how we got through it I cannot imagine. Fortunately everyone saw how ill he was and they avoided getting in to trouble us. He had bad dysentery in addition to lung disease. At Florence, with much difficulty and after great trouble, I came upon a Scottish doctor who had just come there from India, having himself been cured of a similar sort of complaint in India. He took us to a most excellent pension kept by Miss Earle, the daughter of an officer, and there we had every possible comfort, and a large room for Joe which I used to make a complete bower of roses for about 1½d. a day. I used to go out in the morning and come back with my arms full of roses - so full that I could hardly carry them. It was a splendid place. Then my father and sister Gertrude, and my brother Willy came out and brought Joe's wife with them, and then I came home again. He lived about three weeks longer, but when I parted I could tell, even though the doctor did not say so, that there was no chance whatever of our meeting again': Robert Spence Watson (1969) Reminiscences of the late Rt Hon. Robert Spence Watson. York, privately printed, p. 65. The fine anchor sculpted on the tomb's vandalized cross symbolizes hope from Hebrews 6.19. His will was proved at Durham 1873-11-04 by his widow Lucy Watson and brother Robert Spence Watson, executors; effects under £7000. The dates are incorrect for this Scottish doctor to be Dr Wilson.

HIRAM POWERS/ AMERICA/ HIRAM POWERS/ DIED JUNE 27TH 1873/ AGED 68/

Pastore Luigi Santini: 'Hiram Powers (1805-1873), an American, came to Florence in 1837 to study and work, and settled in Via Serragli, the artists' street of the day, with his wife and two children. He earned an international reputation for his statuary, for which he liked to choose the marble and supervise its quarrying himself, and he received considerable acclaim for the busts he did of several presidents of the United States. The cemetery also contains evidence of his grief: James (+1838), Frances (+1857) and Florence (+1857), his children, who died at five, eight and seventeen years of age in this their adopted land (E56)'. Frederic Leighton studied at Florence's Accademia di Belle Arti; Hiram Powers was a professor of sculpture there. B8/ ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING, who wrote of his American Indian eyes, writes an impassioned sonnet to his 'Greek Slave', which was exhibited at the centre of the 1851 Crystal Palace Exhibition, in which she draws the analogy also to American enslavement of Africans, Russian enslavement of serfs. This book's title uses a line from the poem on the statue. Hiram Powers' 'The Last of Her Tribe', shows a Native American woman fleeing her captors. Every detail is observed down to the delicate sewing of the mocassins. The theme repeats that of 'The Greek Slave', a woman representing freedom against male oppressors. Hiram Powers' statue of America is more truly American and more beautiful than the Statue of Liberty, the gift of France, but was rejected by Congress before the Civil War because she tramples on slave chains. It burned in a warehouse fire. This plaster cast was discovered in his Florentine studio in 1966, along with many others, which were purchased by museums in Washington, D.C. Among Powers' other works is the head of the Princess Matilde Buonaparte Demidoff. Hiram Powers' sculpture career had begun with his modelling Dante's Commedia in wax in Cincinatti, Ohio, for B80/ FRANCES (MILTON) TROLLOPE. Near Hiram Powers' tomb is that of B58/ KALIMA NADEZHDA DE SANTIS, a black Nubian slave baptized Orthodox (Nadezhda' meaning 'Hope'), who died in Florence in freedom. A similar story is manifested with F53/ HENRIETTA MARIA HAY, whose Greek mother's freedom was purchased by the Scots Egyptologist, Robert Hay, in the slave market of Alexandria, and whom he married on Malta in 1828. Margaret Fuller's death, along with her husband and baby in the shipwreck of the Elizabeth off Fire Island was partly caused by the colossal statue by Hiram Powers in its hold. Sophia Hawthorne describes Hiram Powers movingly in her diary. Nathanael Hawthorne observed him and his studio for the writing of The Marble Faun. He acted as an unpaid American Consul, for which see James Lorimer Graham, Consular Records. The tombs of B42/ ISABELLA BLAGDEN, B98/ MAJOR FRANCIS CHARLES GREGORIE, B99/ REVD GEORGE BRICKDALE CROSSMAN, B32/ HIRAM POWERS, B103/ ELEANOR AUGUSTA TULK, B131/ HONOURABLE FRANCES TOLLEY, as spiritualists and Swedenborgians, are all clustered together near that of Nadezhda, the Nubian/Russian former slave. Powers' son, Preston, also became a sculptor (B37), while another son, Longworth, became a photographer. Hiram Powers' wife, Elizabeth Gibson Powers, and other children, Nicholas Longworth Powers, Louisa Greenough Powers, Georgiana Rose Powers, and William Preston Powers are all buried in the Allori Cemetery, the remains of Preston (who sculpted Lily Nye's tomb) now lying in their Ossario Comune.

WhiteSilence Elizabeth Barrett Browning, 'Hiram Powers' Greek Slave' 1850

They say Ideal Beauty cannot enter
The house of anguish. On the threshold stands
An alien Image with the shackled hands,
Called the Greek Slave: as if the sculptor meant her,
(That passionless perfection which he lent her,
Shadowed, not darkened, where the sill expands)
To, so, confront men’s crimes in different lands,
With man’s ideal sense. Pierce to the centre,
Art’s fiery finger! - and break up erelong
The serfdom of this world!  Appeal, fair stone,
From God’s pure heights of beauty, against man’s wrong!
Catch up in thy divine face, not alone
East griefs but west, - and strike and shame the strong,
By thunders of white silence, overthrown!
Si dice che la Bellezza Ideale non possa introdursi nella
casa d'angoscia. Sulla soglia una Figura straniera stante, con le mani
incatenate, detta la Schiava Greca: come se lo scultore designasse così lei,
(Quella perfezione impassibile che egli le diede,
ombreggiata, non oscurata, ove la soglia si espande)
per testimoniare i crimini degli uomini in differenti lidi

Con il senso ideale dell'uomo. Penetra nell'intimo,
infuocato dito dell'arte! - e spezza presto
la schiavitù di questo mondo! Appellati, bella pietra,
dalle pure sommità della bellezza di Dio, contro il male dell'uomo!
Cattura nel tuo volto divino, non soltanto
le pene orientali ma anche occidentali, - e colpisci e umilia i forti,
da tuoni di bianco silenzio sconfitti!

B13C/ B38/ 1237/ IDA AUGUSTA (JACKSON) ROENNEKE/ ENGLAND/ IDA AUGUSTA ROENNEKE/ GEB . . . / IN LONDON . . ./ GEST IN FLORENZ  . . . 1873

At first I thought we were dealing with an illegitimate daughter of Constantine Henry Phipps/Phillips, Marquess of Normanby, initially known as Earl of Mulgrave, first Governor of Jamaica, Lord Lieutenant of Ireland, Ambassador to France, then Minister Plenipotentiary in the Legation in Florence from 1854 to 1858. He was in London 1852-54. The family is related to D72/ SIR JAMES ANNESLEY, Sector D. But Diana Webb corrected this: 'No, no illegitimacy, I think, although as always quite an interesting story. Ida is to be found in the 1861 census living with her father Mulgrave Phipps Jackson and his wife Sarah in Bayswater. He is described as a clerk in the Inland Revenue Legacy department, but there is more to him than that. He was the youngest child of John Jackson, RA, (1788-1831), a Yorkshireman who attracted the patronage of Lord Mulgrave (the father of the Florentine Lord Normanby), which would satisfactorily account for the rather flowery name he gave his son. John Jackson's second wife, Matilda, to whom he was married in 1818 and who was much younger than he, was the daughter of James Ward, RA and a niece of George Morland. It seems that Mulgrave Phipps was born on 5 August 1830 and not baptised for nearly two years (16 July 1832 in Marylebone). I haven't yet satisfactorily sorted out his marital affairs, but it seems that Ida was (or may not have been) the child of Sarah, to whom Mulgrave Phipps was only married in 1854. Ida must have been born c.1852, but oddly I can't find the registration of her birth. Then there seems to be no sign of her or of her father in the 1871 census, nor does he appear in 1881, by which time of course his daughter was dead. He lived on, however,  until 4 October 1913, and the Times carried an obituary of him on 18 October in which it said: 'Phipps Jackson himself exhibited in the Royal Academy during 12 years, and is said never to have missed a Private View over more than half a century. About 1880 he was appointed expert valuer to the Government in that department of the Inland Revenue which deals with the legacy and succession duties: and for a long time he wrote criticisms of the chief exhibitions for several newspapers.  Although he had outlived most of his contemporaries, Mr Phipps Jackson was much liked by artists of a somewhat younger generation, and he will be much missed in places where they congregate.' That may be, but he seems to have described himself as a widower in 1891 when Sarah was still very much alive (she didn't die until the end of 1899) and the following year he married yet again! However, this doesn't shed any light on Ida Augusta. She is, in a word, not the illegitimate daughter of Lord Normanby, but indirectly connected with him, or his family, through her grandfather John Jackson and her father's name. However, there is a whiff of scandal about her much-married father. . .the Times obituary mentions nothing about his marriages or children. He was clearly extremely clubbable and turns up in the social columns.

ISABELLA  BLAGDEN/ BORN . . . DIED . . . 1873/ THY WILL BE DONE . . .

NDNB, Thomas Adolphus Trollope, What I Remember, II.173-175. Isa, the 'Madonna of Bellosguardo', was much beloved in the Anglo-Italian community. Impoverished, she lived by the sale of her novels, Agnes Tremorne (1861), The Cost of a Secret (1863), The Woman I Loved and the Woman who Loved Me (1865), Nora and Archibald Lee (1867),The Crown of a Life (1869), her essays, such as one on the exiled French sculptress Félicie de Fauveau, and her various lodgers. Hélène Koehl-Krebs (Aries 7 (2007), 185-206, places her squarely in the Villa Colombaia circle of Spiritualists. There was some mystery over her background, was she Jewish, was she East-Indian, was she part Black, in this being like Theodosia Trollope and Elizabeth Barrett Browning, and this gets into Nathaniel Hawthorne's Marble Faun in his description of Miriam, who is a composite of Isa and Theodosia (B85). She saved the life of Robert Lytton when he was at Bagni di Lucca through her careful nursing of him. Elizabeth and Robert hoped they would marry. He wrote the poem Lucile about her, she the novel Agnes Tremorne about him. He became Viceroy of India and married a proper English girl for consort. Isa and Robert were both present at Elizabeth Barrett Browning (B8)'s funeral, Kate Field tells us, along with the Powers (B32) and Story families, but not Walter Savage Landor (A29), as they forgot to send a carriage for him. Caring for others, Lytton, Pen, Bice, she neglected her own health. Henry James, John Brett, Elizabeth Barrett Browning all appreciated her and her Bellosguardo, which Elizabeth uses for her apocalyptic scene in Aurora Leigh.  This was among her own poems: 
WhiteSilence
O'er the old tower, like red flame curled
Which leapeth sudden to the sky
Its emblem hues all wide unfurled
Upsprings the flag of Italy

Its emblem hues! the brave blood shed
The true life blood by heroes given,
The green palms of the martyred dead,
The snowy robes they wear in Heaven.
. . .

My Florence, which so fair doth be
A dream of beauty at my feet
While smiles above that dappled sky
While glows around that rip'ning wheat

As fair, as peaceful and as bright
Art thou as she we hear came down
From Heaven in bridal robes of light
Thy new Jerusalem St. John!
In John Brett's painting of Aurora Leigh you can just glimpse the Jewish Cemetery nestled against the wall to the left.

KALIMA NADEZHDA DE SANTIS/ NUBIA/RUSSIA/

Kalima, born in Nubia, a black slave, was brought to Florence in 1827 when she was 14, her freedom purchased by Rosellini's uncle of the Champollion and Rosellini Expedition, who was baptised 'Nadezhda', 'Hope', in a Russian Orthodox family, and who died a lady in Florence. Her tomb with the only Orthodox cross in the cemetery, the Swiss forbidding any cross other than the plain Latin one. The Russian Orthodox cross has the third and slanting bar to signify the salvation of the Good Thief, the damnation of the Bad Thief, at the Crucifixion. The inscription in Cyrillic telling her story is near that of B32/ HIRAM POWERS, American, and part Native American, sculptor of the 'Greek Slave', and also near that of B93/ HOPE HAYWARD, 'OUR HOPE', while in Sector E we have the great statue of Hope by Odoardo Fantacchiotti, E25/ SAMUEL REGINALD ROUTH. Nadezhda exemplifies the spirit of the Cemetery, the Abolition of Slavery, the ending of young children's employment in mines and factories, the freeing of women, the freeing of nations. A very similar story is manifested with F53/ HENRIETTA MARIA HAY, whose Greek mother, Kalitza Psaraki, captured by Ottoman Turks in the Greek War of Independence, was purchased in Alexandria's slave market by the Scots Egyptologist, Robert Hay, and whom he married on Malta in 1828. Nubian Kalima's death at 38 occurs in the year of the Crystal Palace Exhibition in London, in the centre of which was Hiram Powers' 'Greek Slave'.

She is French-speaking and from Geneva, her husband, George Walton, appears to be English, their son Louis being given a French name. On the back of this stone Daniel Claudiu Dumitrescu found another inscription to another Swiss wife who later has a grander tomb in Sector C, C85/ LOUISE THOMEQUEX, with her husband's. From the recycling we gather that either this family was poor or the stonemason cheated them.

Contradictions in the obituaries as to this young man's London address.

His nephew, William Wansey, esq. (late of Arborfield, near Reading, and now of Bognor,) is also a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries (elected in 1833), and has twice served the office of Prime Warden in the Company of Fishmongers of London'.

B14E/ B66/ 651/ HENRY GOUSSE BONNIN/ ENGLAND/ SACRED TO THE MEMORY/ OF/ HENRY GOUSSE BONIN/ FOR NEARLY 3O YEARS AN OFFICER/ IN H.R.M.

The family were French Huguenot. Jane Bonnin writes: 'Henry Goussé Bonnin was descended from Goussé Bonnin the surgeon: http://www.bonnin.co.uk/genealogy/gousse_bonnin_surgeon.php Goussé's son Henry was a merchant in Antigua and a prominent slave trader. Henry's son (another Goussé) was sent to England to school - he went to Eton, so the family must have been doing quite well at that point. He subsequently married Dorothy Palmer, the daughter of Sir Charles Palmer Bt. He persuaded Sir Charles to give him money so that he and his partner could set up the first American porcelain factory in Philadelphia. The factory went spectacularly broke after about 18 months and Goussé returned to England, where his children were born. He and his family went to Europe, where it was cheaper to live than England. Henry Goussé was his son, born in England. I don't know much about him, other than that he married Charlotte Ede and died in Florence. William Wingfield was his son. He was born in Livorno around 1820 and seems to have had various jobs, including that of insurance agent for  British insurance company which was setting up business in Italy. He returned to live in England. He died about 1901'. The son is William Wingfield Bonnin, the widow Charlotte Ede who possibly has two relatives in the Cemetery, C48/ DENZIL EDE and E111/ CHARLES EDE, from Cornwall.

Anthony Denny's father-in-law, Vice Admiral Collingwood, was second-in-command at Trafalgar until Nelson's death, with whom he had the most great friendship. Nelson's letters to him always began with 'My dear Coll.' His request that his Lordship descend through his daughters, Sarah and Mary Patience, was not honoured. Sarah's husband took the name Collingwood, while Mary married Anthony Denny, dying in 1822, eleven years before him. Lord Collingwood lies beside Nelson in St Paul's Cathedral. See also D25/ HARCOURT POPHAM, Sector D. Among the lost tombs in this cemetery is that for Emma Carew, Horatia Nelson's half-sister.

I noted in 'Iron Chain, Gold Ring': On 28 December 1827, the ship 'Edward' had set sail from the Port of London for the Port of New Orleans. On board were Frances Trollope, 40, Cecilia Trollope, 12, Emily Trollope, 10, Henry Trollope, 14, all English, Frances Wright, 28, American, and August Hervieu, 23, French. Frances Wright, associated with Lafayette, had invited the Trollopes to Nashoba where she had a settlement for the education of Negro slaves. Auguste Hervieu, a brilliant young artist, was the children's tutor and companion. With them also were Hester Rust and William Abbott, their servants. Often Hervieu had to sell his art to feed and house them all'. In Cincinatti she had engaged the young B32/ HIRAM POWERS to do Dante's Commedia in wax, starting his career as a sculptor. Pastore Luigi Santini wrote of her presence in Florence: 'She was the matriarch of a clan of writers; herself, two sons and two daughters-in-law. She arrived in Florence with her son Thomas Adolphus in 1843 and took up residence in Piazza Santa Croce, immediately entering into friendly relations with notables of the Court and the British community. In 1849 she moved with her son and daughter-in-law Theodosia Garrow to a little house, Villino Trollope, in Piazza Barbano (now Indipendenza). She dedicated herself to the theatre, organized Anglo-Florentine social life, and wrote prolifically, and her house became a meeting place and obligatory reference point even for such writers as Charles Dickens, Thomas Hardy and Thackeray. Her son's autobiography, What I Remember (London, 1887), is a splendid window on cosmopolitan and cultivated Florence'.

Her tomb, its slab now broken, lies between those for Frances and Theodosia Trollope. She had already buried her father, John Brooke, in Sector A (A30), a quarter of a century earlier.

The matching tomb for Augustus Lester Garland, and his two sisters is at Livorno, the first photograph below kindly supplied by Matteo Giunti from the  'Old English Cemetery of Livorno'. Matteo Giunti is actively a member of the Livorno delle Nazioni Association which is trying to save it from decay and the misinterpretations of the past. One wonders, was there no one left to erect her tomb? Or, if she is buried with him, no one to request that extra information be chiseled on the marble? The same neglect is found in the case of Sophia Lagersvard (B20). We also find that where families are separated between the Cimitero 'degli Inglesi' and the Cimitero agli Allori, the tombs defy that separation, for instance the tomb of Mary Spencer Stanhope (B10) mirrors that her Pre-Raphaelite father also sculpted for himself at the Allori.

When an invalid child in Torquay, she had known Elizabeth Barrett, likewise a young invalid, both with tuberculosis. Pastore Luigi Santini: 'She arrived in Florence in 1845 with her father [B108/ JOSEPH GARROW, who is buried near her tomb], an able violinist, and her mother, who became friendly with their neighbours, the Trollopes, as a result of a visit by their mutual friend Charles Dickens. She married Thomas Adolphus Trollope and moved to the Piazza Barbano in 1848. She was a talented writer with a wonderful mastery of Italian and translated works by Giusti and G.B. Nicolini. A fanatic supporter of the cause of Italian independence, she published a history of the Tuscan Revolution in the Athenaeum'. Thomas Adolphus Trollope, What I Remember, II.150-159, 166-168, & Chapter XVIII, describes her as Florence's new Corinne; pp. 171-173. Theodosia (T. Garrow on the title page) made a translation of Giovanni Batista Niccolini’s, Arnold of Brescia, a tragedy, and this was published in London in 1846, also wrote History of the Tuscan Revolution. Elizabeth Shinner (C71), her maid, is mentioned in Harriet Fisher’s will, made on 10 July 1846.  She wrote: ‘To Eliz.th.  Shinner maid servant the sum of 30£ my gold watch and whatever wearing apparel my sister Theodosia Garrow may not wish to retain’. This half-sister, C77/ HARRIET THEODOSIA FISHER (GARROW), is buried with C71/ ELIZABETH SHINNER, their maid, in Sector C.

B12-13F/ B89/ 923/ HENRY YEAMES/ ENGLAND/ HENRY YEAMES/ DIED AT B.BADEN THE 13TH SEPTEMBER 1865

Born, baptised in St Petersburg, Russia, 21 August 1791, parents Henry Savage Yeames and Wilhelmina, married Adela Bastogi, sister of banker Pietro Bastogi, uncle to Victorian painter William Frederick Yeames, who stayed with him in Florence while studying art. Diana Webb writes: 'I was struck by the name Henry Yeames,  he died in September 1865 at Baden Baden, aged 71, and was brought to Florence for burial.  I had encountered him as a subscriber to Vieusseux and elsewhere, and wondered if there was any connection with William Frederick Yeames, painter of 'And When Did You Last See Your Father?'  This is what I found. John Lambe Yeames (1705-1787) forged a long-standing family connection with Russia, as Surveyor of the Russian Navy. His son Henry Savage became British Consul-General of the Black Sea in 1803 and died in 1819, when his son James continues the office. James was one of three sons, the others being Henry (our man, the eldest, I think) and William, who went into business trading from Russia.  In 1842 he and his family, who included William Frederick, born in Russia at the very end of 1835, went on a trip to Italy, where they stayed for a time in Florence with  William's brother Henry and his wife Adela, who lived there. This is our Henry, and Adela was none other than the sister of Pietro Bastogi, prominent banker of Livorno, who played a big part in financing the Tuscan railways, and later became Minister of Finance in the Italian government. Apparently she was quite an active society hostess. From Florence the family moved to Venice, where William senior died just a few weeks or days before his youngest child was born.  They then somehow got back to Russia but turn up later in Germany. In 1852 they again visited Henry and Adela in Florence, and this time they left young William Frederick with his uncle and aunt, to live with them while he studied art. A volume of reminiscences of him written much later by a nephew names some of the people he met while he was there - Rossini, Mary Somerville (E29), and so forth. He moved on to pursue his studies in Rome for a time and then came back to the Yeames palazzo before returning to England, where his mother, brothers and sisters now lived, -  they turn up in London in the 1851 census - although his eldest brother, Henry, continued to be a Russia merchant. So Henry Yeames looks like one of those 'British' Florentine residents who was not born in Britain, and may rarely if ever have set foot in the British Isles except as a visitor, if indeed he ever did.  ( The 'American' Horace Hall and the Catholic Francis Sloane are other examples.) And through him there is an artistic connection, with his nephew William Frederick Yeames'.

JLMaquay, Diaries 8/5/1844 'letter from  P last night. Delisser died suddenly in his carriage on Saturday night' On the Web we find 'Alexander Delisser was a surgeon in London from about 1820s to about 1836. Married Deborah Crawford in London in 1823. [His widow, now named Dora Delisser, dies 12/5/1867 in Marylebone of bronchitis and enlarged heart.] They had 9 children all baptised in London between 1824 and 1835. . . There is a strong connection to Jamaica as he seems to have studied medicine under a Dr Morales there. Dr Morales married twice, both to Delisser women. There are lots of Delissers in Jamaican records, they were mostly Jewish families. . . Alexander had been declared bankrupt around 1825 just after his marriage. He seemed to be complying with court requests so not sure if that was a reason for him to take off to Florence'. Australian descendants pieced together their story. The mother had already buried their surgeon father in Florence where he had died. Later the very promising 19-year-old son, subject to headaches, also dies and there is an inquest, his 13-year-old sister falling from a window the same day. The mother sends the bodies from their home in Marylebone (a Jamaican haunt in London, as with the Barrett Moulton Barretts) to lie with their father's remains and she also leaves a space for her own grave which she does not subsequently use. One wonders, would Elizabeth Barrett Browning, their neighbour, have known their story? Elizabeth herself almost died of grief and tuberculosis at her brother's death by drowning. Morning Post: A lone daughter survives, Agnes Isabella Elizabeth, formerly of Woburn-place, Russell Square and late of Florence, marrying at St Mary's Cheltenham, 12/2/1850. Iris Fromm, Master Mason from Bavaria, repaired this tomb.

REVD GEORGE BRICKDALE CROSSMAN/ IRELAND/ SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF THE REVD GEORGE BRICKDALE CROSSMAN DIED THE 27TH OF FEBRUARY 1854 AGED 62 HE IS NOT DEAD BUT SLEEPETH

GenForum: 'If George Brickdale Crossman was a witness at his sister's wedding on 28 July 1803, he probably shouldn't have been, as he was only twelve years old - he matriculated at Magdalen College in 1812 at the age of twenty one, MA, ordained in 1814, according to the Clergy of the Church of England database. He succeeded his father as rector of Blagdon in Somerset in 1815 but seems to have resigned the benefice four years later. What I would really like to know about him is the name - that is, surname - of his wife Anne. They turn up living in Florence in the 1840s and 1850s - the Rev George died there on 7 February 1854. They had had two daughters, Anne and Georgina, and for years had lived at Bellosguardo overlooking Florence with a Major Charles Gregorie who was certainly some kind of relative. But was he Mrs Crossman's brother, as has been suggested by some Browning scholars? I think not, but I'd love to know what her maiden name was [it was Oakes].' JLMaquay, Diaries 28/2/1854 'Yesterday after Bank went up to the Colombaia having heard of the sudden death of poor Crossman who died sudenly between 9 and 10 a.m. Saw Georgina Baker.'

B8/ ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING writes a famous poem for the burial of 'Lily' Cottrell, B102B/ ELOIS ALICE ENRICA AUGUSTA COTTRELL. She was given to understand that the younger child, B102C/ CHARLES LEWIS COTTRELL, was denied Christian burial being unbaptised, which profoundly depressed her. Robert attended the second funeral as surrogate for the child's father, Count Cottrell, who was too upset to attend. It is possible that the Rev C W Moloney objected to the Cottrells' practices of spiritualism. The Armstrong Browning Library of Baylor University donated the two plaques, one with lines from Elizabeth's poem on the burial of 'Lily' Cottrell, to the Cemetery. A collateral descendant in Australia explained that the Cottrell tombs lie next to that of (B103) Eleanor Augusta Tulk, their great aunt, and close to Elizabeth Barrett Browning's. We later discovered that they are named on the tombstone of Georgiana Sloper, their aunt and sister of their mother, Countess Cottrell. EBB's friendship with the Cottrells cooled when the Count's friend bilked Treppy out of her life's savings, driving her mad, and Robert refused to allow EBB to tell her brothers, only her sisters, of Treppy's need to have her income restored. Treppy, the family's beloved slave from Jamaica, had funded the printing of EBB's second publication, An Essay on Mind.

Thomas Adolphus Trollope, What I Remember, II.150-159: The little boy was born to the Indian Civil Servant's wife, Sultana, who was said to be an Indian princess. Joseph Garrow senior left his son Joseph £5,000, the interest to be used for his education ‘which I desire may be as good as he is capable of receiving in Europe’. He left his sister Eleanora Garrow £2,000 and a further £1,000 on condition that she ‘takes care of and attends to the education’ of his son. Eleanora certainly seems to have been Joseph’s affectionate aunt, and in her will, proved in July 1805, she left him £1,000 in 4% stock, to be given to him when he was 21. She also left £1,000 and some silver items to John Wright, her father’s nephew who was at Caius College, Cambridge, ‘in expectation he will continue as far as lies in his power to be a kind Friend to the dear Son of my late worthy Brother Joseph’. John Wright was in his early 30s and was about to take deacon’s orders. Joseph Garrow translated, The early life of Dante Alighieri, which he published with the Italian and English on facing pages. It was printed in Florence by Felix Le Monnier in 1846. Times Literary Supplement 17/5/1920, remarked 'but it is a curious footnote to the literary annals of Anglo-India which proves that the son of an Indian mother lived to translate Dante and to move in a circle where the Brownings and Landor were the greater lights'. JLMaquay, Diaries 13/11/1857 'old Garrow wretched man died on Tuesday paralytic stroke.' His daughter Theodosia (T. Garrow on the title page) made a translation of Giovanni Battista Niccolini’s, Arnold of Brescia, a tragedy, and this was published in London, also in 1846. See B85/ THEODOSIA (GARROW) TROLLOPE, C77/ HARRIET THEODOSIA FISHER (GARROW).

Their descendants have visited these tombs and the Waterloo Society lists them. Jemima of a Scottish father and thus with a stronger legal backing for sexual equality than from an English father nursed her son and her husband while they were dying of tuberculosis, then died herself. She thus briefly became the legal head of their family. JLMaquay, Diaries 7/9/1854 'up early to attend funeral of Mrs Napier Kellett. Father mother and son have all died within 16 months.' Her daughter, Jemima Hunter Kellett, places her magnificent tombstone with its armorial bearings: she will marry the following year the Portuguese Jew Elias Henrriques Melhado, the son of Daniel and Judith Melhado, and whose family, like the Barretts, were also in Jamaica. There is careful documentation in the Scottish archives protecting Jemima's property against Elias, nor do we find him violating those terms. Jemima Melhado died at 75 in 1908, Elias Melhado at 91 in 1918, both in the Jamaican region of London, St Marylebone.
