THUNDERS OF WHITE SILENCE

CHAPTER VIII: SECTOR F

WhiteSilence
Say not the struggle naught availeth,
   The labour and the wounds are vain,
The enemy faints not, nor faileth,
   And as things have been they remain.

If hopes were dupes, fears may be liars;
   It may be, in yon smoke conceal'd,
Your comrades chase e'en now the fliers,
   And, but for you, possess the field.

For while the tired waves, vainly breaking,
   Seem here no painful inch to gain,
Far back, through creeks and inlets making,
   Comes silent, flooding in, the main.

And not by eastern windows only,
   When daylight comes, comes in the light;
In front the sun climbs slow, how slowly!
   But westward, look, the land is bright!

                             Arthur Hugh Clough, F8
White Silence

It irk'd him to be here, he could not rest.
       He loved each simple joy the country yields,
               He loved his mates; but yet he could not keep,
       For that a shadow lour'd on the fields,
               Here with the shepherds and the silly sheep.
                      Some life of men unblest
       He knew, which made him droop, and fill'd his head.
               He went; his piping took a troubled sound
               Of storms that rage outside our happy ground;
       He could not wait their passing, he is dead.
. . .
Alack, for Corydon no rival now!—
       But when Sicilian shepherds lost a mate,
               Some good survivor with his flute would go,
       Piping a ditty sad for Bion's fate;
               And cross the unpermitted ferry's flow,
                      And relax Pluto's brow,
       And make leap up with joy the beauteous head
               Of Proserpine, among whose crowned hair
               Are flowers first open'd on Sicilian air,
       And flute his friend, like Orpheus, from the dead.
                          From Matthew Arnold, Thyrsis

SAXON COCKER/
ENGLAND
/

This early tomb, for a person from Bath, whose funeral is held by Horace Hall and Pastor Charles Recordon, is one of the most beautiful, a rounded urn with an ourobouros, a serpent with its tail in its mouth symbolizing eternity, sculpted on its convex surface. The ourobouros derived from the Champollion/ Rosellini Expedition to Egypt and Nubia in 1828. Look behind it to see on the gable to F4/ ANN ALICE HOLT's tomb another hieroglyph, a winged hourglass embraced by serpents and roots, likewise inspired by the Egyptomania of that 1828 Expedition. These are everywhere in the Cemetery and were featured in Florence's Museo Archeologico Nazionale's Exhibition, 2006-2007.

MARY ANNE SALISBURY/ ENGLAND/ ERECTED TO THE MEMORY/ OF/ MARY ANNE SALISBURY/ BY HER ATTACHED MISTRESS/ ROSINA BUONARROTI SIMONI/ DIED ON THE 31 OF MARCH 1848/ 386

This tomb for her English maidservant was placed by the Catholic wife of the last descendant of Michelangelo Buonarotti beneath a great yew tree at the entrance of the English Cemetery. It was tradition to have two yew trees, poisonous to cattle but essential for the English long bow of Agincourt in English graveyards, which also symbolize the Jachin and Boaz columns of the Jerusalem Temple (Heb. יָכִין בֹּעַז). Only one yew tree remains and a falling branch from it destroyed this tomb, now replaced by the Rotary Club, 23/4/2012. The busts of Count Cosimo Buonarroti and Rosina which grace the Michelangelo museum at the Casa Buonarroti were sculpted by Aristodemo Costoli, who also sculpted the cameo portrait on GEORGE AUGUSTUS WALLIS' tomb, A64. We witness amongst many of these tombs the great affection and respect their masters and mistresses paid to servants under their roof: CHARLES CROSBIE, A20 to MARY DUVALL, A80; the friends of the late WILLIAM READER, A23 to HENRY AUSTIN, E34; FRANCES (MILTON) TROLLOPE, B80, THEODOSIA (GARROW) TROLLOPE, B85, and HARRIET THEODOSIA FISHER (GARROW), C77, to ELIZABETH SHINNER, C71; ISABELLA BOUILLON LANZONI, D29, to ANNA ROFFY, C61SIR WILLIAM HENRY SEWELL, E58, to JAMES BANSFIELD, E59; Prince Demidoff to GEORGE FREDERIC WAIHINGER, E64; Rosina Buonarotti Simoni to MARY ANNE SALISBURY, F2.

ELIZABETH (DAUBENY) DAUBENEY/ ENGLAND/ SACRED/ TO THE MEMORY OF/ ELIZABETH/ THE BELOVED WIFE OF/ MAJOR. GENERAL. DAUBENEY. K.H./ OF BATH/ DAUGHTER OF ARCHDEACON DAUBENY/ WHO DIED AT FLORENCE/ THE 3RD OF APRIL 1844/ AGED 61

Her father, Archdeacon Charles Daubeny, from Bristol, travelled widely in northern, central and eastern Europe, inaugurated the first Free Church in England, had two sons and one daugher, and has entries in the NDNB and Wikipedia. JLMaquay, Diaries 5/4/1844 'Attended Mrs Daubenys funeral this morning early'. The Webbs suggested that her husband Henry Daubeney was buried in Rome in 1853. Checking we found the Protestant Cemetery's tomb for him there is identical to this one. Their son, Gen. Sir Henry Charles Barnston Daubeney, G.C.B. (1810-1903), had a very distinguished military career. Wikisource: "Born at Ripon, Yorkshire, on 19 Dec. 1810, he was eldest son of lieut. -general Henry Daubeney, K. H., by his first cousin, Elizabeth, daughter of Charles Daubeny [q. v.], archdeacon of Sarum. Educated at Sandhurst, he entered the army as ensign of the 55th foot (later 2nd battalion Border regiment) in 1829. He served in that corps for thirty years until he attained the rank of colonel. In the Coorg campaign, in South India (1832-4), he served with his regiment with the northern column under Colonel Waugh ; he was present at the assault and capture of the stockade of Kissenhully, and at the attack on that of Soamwarpettah. There he was in charge of one of the two guns attached to the column, and by his perseverance saved it from capture during the retreat. The British losses amounted to three officers and forty-five men killed and 118 men wounded, but the Rajah of Coorg, who was opposing the British advance, was defeated and deposed on 5 April 1834. Daubeney served with his regiment during the Chinese war of 1841-2, and as a captain commanded the light company at the repulse of the enemy's night attack at Chinhae, and at the storm and capture of Chapou (18 May 1842). He was on the staff as major of brigade to Sir James Schoedde at Woosung, Shanghai, and Chin-Kiang, and was twice mentioned in despatches. He received the medal, was promoted brevet major on 23 Dec. 1842, and was made C.B. on 24 Dec. 1842. Becoming major (25 Nov. 1845) he went through the Crimean campaign of 1854. On 26 Oct. 1854 he helped to repulse the sortie of the Russians from Sevastopol. At Inkerman, on 5 Nov. 1854, Daubeney, at the head of thirty men of his regiment, executed a flank charge; without firing a shot he forced his way through the attacking Russian column, and by this manœuvre compelled the enemy's battalions to fall back in confusion. He was commended in despatches and was gazetted to a substantive lieut.-colonelcy on 12 Dec. 1854 for his services at Inkerman, but he declined a promotion which would have removed him from the seat of war and placed him on half pay, while his regiment was serving in the field. General Sir John Pennefather [brother of Kingsmill Pennefather, uncle of A86/ CATHERINE (PENNEFATHER) SAVILE, great uncle of A85/ ELEANOR MARY MOORE, and related by marriage to A77MAJOR MICHELANGELO GALEAZZI] recommended him for the Victoria Cross, but being a regimental field officer he was held to be ineligible according to existing rules. He received next year the reward for distinguished service, the medal with three clasps, the legion of honour, and the fourth class of the order of the Medjidie. From 1858 to 1869 he was inspector of army clothing. Promoted major-general on 6 March 1868 and lieut.-general on 1 Oct. 1877, he was nominated K.C.B. on 30 May 1871, was appointed colonel of his regiment on 3 Feb. 1879, became general on 4 March 1880, and was promoted G.C.B. on 24 March 1884." Thus the son's medals are similar to those of A48/ SIR DAVID DUMBRECK, Sector A. This tomb has been carefully restored and cleaned with contributions from descendants.

Ancestry.com notes James Walters Kelson, buried in Florence cemetery in 1861, perhaps second husband of Grace Price Kelson, née Morgan, b 1811 in India. Her first husband was Rev Frederick Grueber Lugard who divorced her on the grounds of her adultery. Kelson was in the Yeomanry Cavalry. The myrtle beside this tomb is one of the few original plants from the nineteenth century garden this Cemetery once had. We have planted cuttings from it on our Russian tombs in memory of Pushkin's lines on his friend buried in Livorno 'beneath the myrtle of sweet Italy'.

A beloved pageboy to the Tsar Alexander II (who freed the serfs, 2 March 1861), and who orders the tomb and its inscription, this ten-year-old child born in Warsaw in Poland being probably sent from St Petersburg to Florence because of tuberculosis. The iron work and four urns at each corner to this magnificent tomb can be seen in early photographs by Hiram Powers' son, Longworth Powers, and in the 1874 engraving, but these have since been stolen. Its broken garlanded column signifies that he has died too young. Myrtle planting is planned.

Severinus Goedke Zimbowsky, likewise from Warsaw, ironically next to the Tsar's favourite page boy (F6), dies in exile in Florence of his wounds from fighting against the Tsar for Poland's freedom. Kamil Dziubek has corrected the inscription and given its diacritics. He also notes that the Polish inscription contains a verse from Anhelli, an epic poem by Juliusz
Słowacki, written in the style of a biblical parable and describing the miserable lives of Polish exiles in Siberia, translated by Dorothy Prall Radin as, 'And the crowds were dismayed, saying to themselves: Lo, they are dying, and they do not complain' (http://konicki.com/blog2/2009/10/23/october-23-%e2%80%93-an-excerpt-from-anhelli-by-juliusz-slowacki/). We recall Elizabeth Barrett Browning in Casa Guidi Windows writing of the Polish ladies bleached by the snow:

Hast thou found
No remedy, my England, for such woes?
No outlet, Austria, for the scourged and bound,
No entrance for the exiled? no repose,
Russia, for knouted Poles worked underground,
And gentle ladies bleached among the snows?
No mercy for the slave, America?
No hope for Rome, free France, chivalric France?
Alas, great nations have great shames, I say.

Ivan Leontevich Lewitsky has been raised Russian Orthodox, Severinus Goedke, Protestant and now come to be side by side in a Swiss cemetery in Florence.

ARTHUR HUGH CLOUGH/ AMERICA/ENGLAND/ ARTHUR HUGH CLOUGH/ SOMETIME FELLOVV/ OF ORIEL COLLEGE OXFORD/ DIED AT FLORENCE/ NOVEMBER 13 MDCCCLXI/ AGED 42/ THE LAST FAREVVELL OF/ HIS SORROVVING VVIFE AND SISTER

Arthur Hugh Clough grew up in Charleston, South Carolina, returning to England at the age of ten to attend Rugby School under Thomas Arnold. He was at Balliol, then a Fellow at Oriel, wrote The Bothie of Tober-na-Vuolich, witnessed, with Emerson, the French Revolution of 1848 and the Roman Revolution of 1850, wrote Amours de Voyage, assisted Florence Nightingale, his relative by marriage, returning to America for a year in 1852, then contracted malaria travelling in Italy. Matthew Arnold wrote Thyrsis in his memory. Later, Lytton Strachey in Eminent Victorians would describe him:

But there was an exceptional kind of boy, upon whom the high-pitched exhortations of Dr. Arnold produced a very different effect. A minority of susceptible and serious youths fell completely under his sway, responded like wax to the pressure of his influence, and moulded their whole lives with passionate reverence upon the teaching of their adored master. Conspicuous among these was Arthur Clough. Having been sent to Rugby at the age of ten, he quickly entered into every phase of school life, though, we are told, “a weakness in his ankles prevented him from taking a prominent part in the games of the place.” At the age of sixteen, he was in the Sixth Form, and not merely a Præpostor, but head of the School House. Never did Dr. Arnold have an apter pupil. This earnest adolescent, with the weak ankles and the solemn face, lived entirely with the highest ends in view. He thought of nothing but moral good, moral evil, moral influence, and moral responsibility. Some of his early letters have been preserved, and they reveal both the intensity with which he felt the importance of his own position, and the strange stress of spirit under which he laboured. “I have been in one continued state of excitement for at least the last three years,” he wrote when he was not yet seventeen, “and now comes the time of exhaustion.” But he did not allow himself to rest, and a few months later he was writing to a schoolfellow as follows:—
I verily believe my whole being is soaked through with the wishing and hoping and striving to do the school good, or rather to keep it up and hinder it from falling in this, I do think, very critical time, so that my cares and affections and conversations, thoughts, words, and deeds look to that involuntarily. I am afraid you will be inclined to think this “cant,” and I am conscious that even one’s truest feelings, if very frequently put out in the light, do make a bad and disagreeable appearance; but this, however, is true, and even if I am carrying it too far, I do not think it has made me really forgetful of my personal friends, such as, in particular, Gell and Burbidge and Walrond, and yourself, my dear Simpkinson.
Perhaps it was not surprising that a young man brought up in such an atmosphere should have fallen a prey, at Oxford, to the frenzies of religious controversy; that he should have been driven almost out of his wits by the ratiocinations of W. G. Ward; that he should have lost his faith; that he should have spent the rest of his existence lamenting that loss, both in prose and verse; and that he should have eventually succumbed, conscientiously doing up brown paper parcels for Florence Nightingale.

His wife was Blanche, his  sister, Anne Jemima Clough, first principal of Newnham College. Susan Horner wrote on 8th December 1861 in her Diary: 'I went to the Italian Church, and Mamma (
A15/ ANNE SUSANNA (LLOYD) HORNER) Joanna and Mrs Zileri (A69/ MARGARET (EDMOND) ZILERI) to the Scotch(A17/ROBERT MAXWELL HANNA) - Blanche and I went to Mrs Bracebridge to talk over the stone she is erecting to her husband's memory. She walked back with me afterwards from the Hotel de la Ville to our house. Harry Stewart called and Mr and Mrs Macbean from Leghorn. The Marchese Torregiani sent me Champollion's work on Egypt as Blanche wanted me to take a drawing from the winged figure of the Divinity for Mr Clough's tombstone. The windows at the Pitti all lighted up for a grand reception given by the Prince Carignano. A soldier's funeral has just past our windows'.

This disc, flanked by snakes is seen over the gates and doorways of ancient Egyptian temples. As the symbol of a solar deity it wards off evil and protects sacred territory from malign influences. The winged globe and lotuses in lead on the marble are very much part of the Egyptomania of this period. The topiary laurel tree that once shaded it stained the marble almost irreparably and has been removed. Dr Vieri Torrigiani Malaspina has planted pomegranates by the tombs of our three great poets and a white rose on the tomb of Susan Horner's mother opposite in Sector A,
A15/ ANNE SUSANNA (LLOYD) HORNER. The wild strawberries, remembered by elderly ladies who played here when they were children, have come back after the thirty-years' use of weedkiller was stopped .

Sacred/ to the memory of / ROBERT HART/ Sculptor/ of Kentucky, U.S. of America/ who died at Florence Jan 1, 1862,/ in the 33d year of his age/ A wife's last tribute to her husband

The less famous sculptor nephew to Joel Tanner Hart, likewise from Kentucky, came to work with his uncle around 1856, and now lies under a pietra serena pyramid carefully sculpted with masonic emblems. Its form is likely Robert Hart's conception, borrowing from the pyramid of Caius Cestius in Rome. He had been a carver of tombstones for others in Kentucky. The choice of pietra serena by his wife shows their impoverishment.

FLORENCE EVELYN JULIA FLEETWOOD WILSON/ ENGLAND/ FLORENCE EVELYN JULIA/ FLEETWOOD WILSON/ BORN 3 MAY 1853 - DIED 2 JUNE 1875/ THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD I SHALL NOT WANT/ PSAL, XXIII/ SAFE IN THE ARMS OF JESUS SAFE ON HIS GENTLE BREAST/ THERE BY HIS LOVE O'ERSHADED SWEETLY MY SOUL SHALL REST

This tomb sculpted with its broken lily on a cross echoing that on the Irish Yelverton tomb opposite in Sector B (B3/ ANNA MARIA CECILIA YELVERTON), tells a story more out of Frances Trollope than it is of Jane Austen. Because of his brother's debts her father, Thomas Hugh Wilson Fleetwood, has had to leave Knowle Hall in Warwickshire and live in Florence where her mother Harriet Horatia had family. We learn that this mother is the daughter of C96/ CAPTAIN CHARLES MONTAGUE (HUDLESTON) WALKER, and C97/ ANNA MARIA (RIDDELL) WALKER, both buried in Sector C, who are thus the grandparents to F13/ FLORENCE EVELYN JULIA FLEETWOOD WILSON, this information given in an account of her brother Guy Douglas Arthur Fleetwood Wilson's medals and portrait: http://www.dnw.co.uk/medals/auctionarchive/searchcataloguearchive/itemdetail.lasso?itemid=67211. Was she born in Florence or named so from her grandparents' residence there? The Webbs note that her family is interconnected with the the Chichesters, Baldellis, Walkers, Riddells, Fleetwood Wilsons, MacDoualls, Moysers. Tony Fleetwood-Wilson notes the connection with yet another Cemetery family, Admiral Edward Fleetwood Pellew: 'I understand that my Wilson forebears used the name Fleetwood after Lieutenant Alex Wilson RM gave the name to one of his sons after having served under Sir Edward Pellew, later Lord Exmouth. I searched two biographies of Lord Exmouth but could find no mention of Alex Wilson but the connection was related in my great aunt’s history of the family. One of Alex’s children was named Edward Pellew and another Fleetwood Pellew, all names of the Exmouth family. Alex Wilson married the sister of my great-great-grandmother, Barbara of Banff, Scotland. It seems that both families used the names borrowed from Sir Edward Pellew/ Lord Exmouth.  Several years ago, I was in contact with an Eduardo Pellew Wilson of Rio de Janiero, who is descended from Edward Pellew, the eldest of Alex Wilson’s sons. Alex Wilson died in 1817 so he may have served under Sir Edward Pellew during the French Revolutionary Wars'. Tony Fleetwood Wilson is also connected to A63/ JAMES LUKIN DAVIS, Sector A.

Her mother is Gertrude Walker, descended also from the Riddells (C96/ CAPTAIN CHARLES MONTAGUE (HUDLESTON) WALKER, and C97/ ANNA MARIA (RIDDELL) WALKER), her father, Count Antonio Baldelli. We come to understand why these tombs are side by side, as they are both of members of the Protestant Walker family, associated with Count Piero Guicciardini and his sister F34/ CONTESSA GIULIA GUICCIARDINI MORROCHI who is buried in this same Sector F. Count Piero Giucciardini, Bartolomeo Bartolini Baldelli, Antonio Targioni-Tozzetti, Giuseppe Gazzer, together published Primo rapporto e regolamenti dell' asilo infantile aperto in Firenze nell' antico convento di S. Monaca, Firenze, Presso la Tipografia Galileiana, 1835. This orphanage later was housed in the villa by Piazza Massimo D'Azeglio willed to the Valdensian Church by the Countess Giulia Baldelli, also a Walker, a continuation of the work of AB27/ SALVATORE FERRETTI, buried in Sector AB. The family has ordered a copy of Lorenzo Bartolini's 1834 Fiducia in Dio for the tomb, but stipulated she be clothed instead of nude. The astronomer Simone Bianchi has written saying the mother, Gertrude Walker Baldelli (perhaps through a friendship with Mary Somerville?), worked with the first directors of the Arcetri Observatory.

GEORGE CATTON BOMFORD/
AMERICA


He is the son of Colonel George Bomford, chief of ordinance at Washington, who invented the 'Columbiad', a cannon that fired heavy projectiles at both high and low trajectories which enabled it to fire solid shot or shell to long ranges, making it an excellent seacoast defense weapon for its day, and whose wife Clara was sister-in-law to Joel Barlow, the author of the poem Columbiad. George Catton Bomford was active in the Oregon Territory, now Washington State. He died in Florence, 1859, while visiting his sister Louise who was living with her married daughter here, his Will being filed for probate in Washington in 1862. Unusually his family elected not to have his body shipped back to the States, where his father and mother lay in a mausoleum, nor have they cared for his almost lost tomb.

Web: 'Our obituary records the death of Robert Gardner, Esq., of Sansaw, in this county, which took place on the 14th April, 1880, at The Mythe Malvern, where he had resided for several years. The deceased gentleman inherited the Sansaw estate from his uncle, the Rev. Dr. Gardner, and acquired that of Leighton by marriage with the niece and sole heiress of Thomas Kynnersley, Esq., of that place, by whom he had a numerous family. His eldest son, Thomas Kynnersley, married in 1856 the eldest daughter of Colonel Frederick Hill, of Frees Hall, and niece of the late Viscount Hill. Mr. Gardner was a Magistrate for the county of Salop, but has for many years abstained from any active participation in public life. He was in the 76th year of his age'. Again this tomb has no mention of her marriages contracted in Italy. It seems she is the daughter or niece of SARAH (GARDINER BROWN) ACERBI?
857/ SARAH (GARDINER BRUIN) ACERBI/ ENGLAND/

Would she be a sister of the Rev. Dr. Gardner, who has come to Italy with her niece Mary Gardner? Her story is a sad one. She is English, widowed from an English husband, then married to an Italian, Joachim Acerbi, in such poverty that she has died at 75, a pauper. Her death is officially noted by the English, the Swiss giving her a free burial. In this period one died at home surrounded by one's family, hospital deaths being shameful and only for the destitute.

HARRIET MATILDA (ROBBINS THYNNE INGHIRAMI) GRABAU/ ENGLAND/ . . . AND SISTER OF THE REV. GEORGE ROBBINS/ DIED JUNE // ERECTED IN AFFECTIONATE REMEMBRANCE/ BY HER LOVING NIECES/ RESURGAM

Harriet Matilda Robbins, daughter of Thomas Robbins, married (1) 'Lord Thomas Thynne, eldest son of the 2nd Marquess of Bath, styled Viscount Weymouth. Member of Parliament (Tory) for Weobley 1818-20 (b. 9 Apr 1796;  dvp. 16 Jan 1837), 11 May 1820; (2) Count Inghirami; (3) Carlo Grabau, Hanseatic Consul at Livorno, m. to 'Enrichetta Inghirami, patrizia Volterrana': 'Niccolò Inghirami Fei (1804-1869) Console d’Austria a Livorno. Nato ad Amburgo nel 1804 dal cav. Lino Marcello Inghirami Fei e da Maria Giuseppa di Sebastiano Benedetto Riccobaldi Del Bava, fu il secondogenito di sette fratelli. I suoi genitori si trovavano ad Amburgo fin dal 1799 poiché suo padre, particolarmente distintosi nel raccogliticcio esercito di sanfedisti che, mentre Napoleone si trovava in Egitto, era riuscito a rioccupare la Toscana cacciandone i francesi, aveva preferito in seguito mettersi al sicuro con la famiglia abbandonando l’Italia. Marcello Inghirami, infatti, in qualità di generale riconquistò Volterra, mentre suo fratello Curzio, che fungeva da suo luogotenente, entrò col suo esercito in Livorno abbandonata dai francesi. Furono però successi assai effimeri: dopo il ritorno di Napoleone e la vittoria di Marengo, i francesi s’impadronirono nuovamente dell’Italia obbligando pertanto gli oppositori che si erano maggiormente esposti a cercare scampo con la fuga. Marcello Inghirami si trasferì così in Germania e mentre il suo figlio primogenito Sebastiano si stabilì definitivamente ad Amburgo, ove ebbe numerosa prole, Niccolò (che rimase sempre celibe) preferì ritornare in Italia e si stabilì a Livorno dove già viveva sua sorella Enrichetta sposata al console del regno di Hannover Carlo Grabau. Qui Niccolò lavorò per l’amministrazione lorenese che trovò in lui un funzionano abile e fidato ed alla quale egli rimase sempre fedele anche durante la cruenta occupazione austriaca di Livorno che seguì al ritorno in Toscana di Leopoldo II. Per la grande stima che si era universalmente guadagnato, dopo la caduta del governo lorenese e al sopravvento del Regno d’Italia, poté esercitare, proprio a Livorno, la carica di console dell’Impero austro-ungarico. Accadde così che nel maggio del 1869 fu incaricato di accompagnare al porto della città il generale Folliot de Crenneville, di origine francese, che, passato al servizio dell’Austria, era stato nominato nel 1849 governatore di Livorno e che durante il periodo dello stato d’assedio a cui allora fu sottoposta la città si era distinto per la ferocia e l’implacabile tracotanza con cui aveva esercitato le sue funzioni repressive. La notizia della sua presenza in città si sparse subito alimentando propositi di vendetta. La sera del 24 maggio 1869 il conte de Crenneville e l’Inghirami raggiunsero il porto dove l’ex governatore doveva imbarcarsi sul piroscafo Sardegna ma giunti dinanzi al monumento dei "Quattro Mori” alcuni uomini che li avevano seguiti si fecero avanti ed un colpo di pugnale trafisse il volto del generale. L’Inghirami si piegò per soccorrere il ferito, ma nella concitazione di quei momenti fu colpito mortalmente da una nuova pugnalata diretta al conte; egli cadde pertanto esanime sul corpo del de Crenneville che invece se la cavò con poche ferite lievi. La sera stessa la sua salma fu trasportata con gran seguito popolare al cimitero della Misericordia dove ebbe una modesta sepoltura arricchita in seguito, su ordine dell’imperatore Francesco Giuseppe, da una lapide sormontata da una croce di marmo. Il processo che seguì all’attentato si concluse con l’assoluzione degli imputati: l’uccisione di Niccolò Inghirami restò dunque impunita ed il vero movente che fu all’origine questo fatto di sangue, anche a causa di forti pressioni politiche, non fu mai chiarito'. From which we assume that she is his widowed sister-in-law, Enrichetta, now married to the Hanoverian Consul, so that he as Austrian Consul can live with them. There are archival materials in Livorno from Enrichetta Inghirami. In connection with the Villa Grabau in Lucca we learn that 'Carlo Grabau, di nobili origini tedesche, nato ad Amburgo nel 1784, si era trasferito a Livorno come Console Generale delle Città Anseatiche del Mare del Nord presso il Granduca di Toscana ed aveva sposato Enrichetta Inghirami, patrizia Volterrana'. 'Carlo di Amburgo, console di Annover e di altri Stati in Livorno e ammogliato con Enrichetta Inghirami, patrizia volterrana, fu ammesso alla nobiltà di Volterra nel 1836. La famiglia è iscritta nell'Elenco Ufficiale Nobiliare Italiano col titolo di Nobile di Volterra e nobile di Livorno'. She continued during her further marriages to sign herself 'Weymouth'. Daniel-Claudiu Dumitrescu has restored and cleaned her badly vandalized tomb and that of her clergyman brother E101/ REVD GEORGE ROBBINS.

Caroline Napier is the illegitimate daughter of Charles Lennox, third Duke of Richmond, who is her husband's relative. Mary, married to Arthur Lambert, is her sister, why they name their  son 'Lennox' of the two children they bury in Sector E, E117/ FLORENCE CAROLINE LAMBERT AND GEORGE ARTHUR LENNOX LAMBERT (who die in 1850, 14 years after Caroline Napier's death). JLMaquay 6/9/1836 'Mrs Napier died last ight after an illness of 7 hours, leaves 4 children, poor woman' 21/9/1836 Maquay takes back an old servant who had been with Captain Napier, the latter now leaving as his wife is dead. Before he does so her husband spends a fortune to place on her tomb his very lengthy poem at her death. The Morning Post orbituary by way of Galignani and clearly written by her husband gives the following: 'Died on Monday, the 5th instant, at the Villa Capponi near Florence, after an illness of only fourteen hours, Caroline, wife of Captain H.R.E Napier, RN. The awfully sudden death (at the early age of thirty, and in the treacherous security of the highest health), of one so justly beloved by all who knew her, has excited the deepest sympathy in Florence and its neighbourhood, where a residence of some years has caused her worth to be known and appreciated. Beautiful, refined, and unaffected, the graces of her person were in her but faint and frail symbols of that eternal beauty of the mind which alone is imperishable; and which, while it illustrated her brief career with every act that could dignify the exalted character of a wife, a mother, a daughter, and a friend, or ennoble the active but unpretending exercise of an enlightened faith, a consistent hope, and un univrsal charity, has shed a lustre around her memory which time can never tarnish, nor oblivion efface. Her remains were attended to the grave by a circle of sorrowing friends, anxious to testify to her bereaved husband their high sense of her superior qualities, and their poignant and unfeigned grief at his immeasurable loss'. Dictionary of National Biography emtryotes that Henry Edward Napier's Florentine History from the earliest Authentic Records to the Accessin of Ferdinand the Third, Grandduke of Tuscany 'Napier, Henry Edward 1789-1853, historian, born on 5 March 1789, was son of Colonel George Napier [q.v.], younger brother of Sir Charles James Napier [q.v.], conqueror of Scinde, of Sir George Thomas Napier [q.v.], governor of the Cape of Good Hope, and of Sir William Francis Patrick Napier [q.v.], historian and general. . . . His chief claim to notice is that he was the author of ‘Florentine History from the earliest Authentic Records to the Accession of Ferdinand the Third, Grandduke of Tuscany,’ six vols., 1846-7, a work showing much independence of judgment and vivacity of style, but marred by prolixity. He was elected a fellow of the Royal Society on 18 May 1820, and died at 62 Cadogan Place, London, on 13 Oct. 1853. He married on 17 Nov. 1823 Caroline Bennet, a natural daughter of Charles Lennox, third duke of Richmond; she died at Florence on 5 Sept. 1836, leaving three children'. Hare, Horner cite Napier's Florentine History. Since Henry Napier's mother, Lady Sarah Lennox, is the fourth daughter of the second Duke of Richmond, there is serious inbreeding in the family. Caroline Napier's mother, Mary Bennett. joins her eleven years later, seemingly having remained in Florence.

Her husband, Cavaliere Don Oreste Ciampi, a lawyer, who seems not to have learned English, was also an exhibiting artist. Did he have Joel Hart sculpt her likeness? Did she die of cancer? He bought parts of the Villa Puccini in Pistoia where she likely lived: 'Villa Puccini - La villa, nota con il nome di villone, fu fatta costruire da Tommaso Puccini nella prima meta' del secolo XVIII, con i guadagni che ricavo' dalla sua professione di medico, e fu modificata nel corso del tempo fino ad assumere l'attuale aspetto neoclassico. Nell'Ottocento, Niccolo' Puccini, uno dei promotori della Societa' dei Parentali ai Grandi Italiani, mise a disposizione di Filippo Pacini un microscopio con il quale il grande scienziato pistoiese condusse, proprio nella villa, le prime ricerche anatomiche e istologiche. L'ampio giardino, realizzato tra il 1821 e il 1844 per volere di Niccolo' Puccini, fu arredato con vari edifici, alcuni dei quali dedicati alla scienza: un Pantheon agli Uomini Illustri, un "Tempio di Pitagora", un monumento alla scienza, uno all'industria, un emiciclo dedicato a Galileo Galilei e una colonna sovrastata dalla statua di Carlo Linneo, alla cui memoria fu dedicato il parco. Per la sistemazione della struttura idraulica dei due laghi e dei ruscelli incarico' l'architetto pistoiese Giovanni Gambini, che in quel periodo lavorava anche a villa Celle. Emanuele Repetti definiva il giardino come un luogo «incantato che difficilmente si potrebbe descrivere come merita». Attualmente esso non si presenta piu' nelle sue forme originarie ed alcuni suoi monumenti sono scomparsi. Sostanzialmente invariato e' rimasto, invece, il Castello Gotico (o Fortezza), uno degli edifici monumentali che arricchiva il giardino e che divento', dal 1836 dimora abituale di Niccolo' Puccini. Come testimoniano accurate descrizioni ottocentesche redatte in occasione della vendita all'asta delle proprieta', la torretta centrale possedeva, oltre ad un parafulmine alla sommita' del tetto, curiosi marchingegni che secondo un'aneddotica assai diffusa avrebbero permesso a Niccolo' Puccini di non allontanarsi dalla sua camera da letto per ricevere gli ospiti: «Nella parete interna di questa camera trovansi diverse maniglie d'ottone che servano con adattato meccanismo ad aprire e chiudere la finestra, aprire e chiudere il cancello di cinta esterno ed ad altri usi oggi fuori servizio». Una divisione della proprieta' fu originata prima dalla costruzione della strada per Porretta, la nuova via Leopolda (1847), e poi dalla costruzione della strada ferrata Porrettana (1864). L'area che comprende la Fortezza, il tempio gotico, il pantheon e alcuni monumenti, quali quello a Galileo, furono acquistati nel 1867 dall'avvocato fiorentino Oreste Ciampi'.  This is one among several tombs with a portrait medallion: 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.

/ JOEL TANNER HART/ AMERICA/ F8U(131)

This tomb used to carefully lie outside the old boundary of consecrated soil and its inscription is completely secular. (The Swiss administration of the cemetery has now enlarged the area and included it within the boundary.) The American sculptor from Kentucky, Joel Tanner Hart, was particularly famous for his 'Woman Triumphant', over which he laboured for years in the classical model of taking aspects of 150 Florentine women combined into one perfect form. Jilted in his proposal to marriage he shows the sculptured woman as rejecting and breaking the arrow offered by Cupid. His studio was between Villino Trollope and Greenough's studio in the neighbourhood of the Piazza Independenza (we recall that Frances Trollope (B11E 849) gave Hiram Powers (B15D 1220) his start as a sculptor with the waxworks of Dante's Commedia in Cincinnati, Ohio). The women of the 'Blue Grass' of Kentucky raised the funds to bring his body back home with a great and completely secular celebration, 18/6/1887, having already placed the statue 'Woman Triumphant' at the centre of the Lexington Kentucky court building in 1884 - where it came to be completely destroyed by fire, the bell from the tower falling on it, only one sculpted hand surviving. He sculpted the cameo portrait of C3/ THOMAS SOUTHWOOD SMITH (Charles Dickens ordered this from him) and placed the first and provisional tombstone on D108/ THEODORE PARKER's grave, which was later replaced by that sculpted by William Wetmore Story from funds raised by Frederick Douglass and others. It is conjectured by the Belle Arti that he also sculpted the medallions of D127/ JAMES ROBERTS in Sector D and F27/ PHILIPPINA (SIMONS) CIAMPI, in this sector.

We do not know her age but she is the youngest daughter of C69/ MARY WHYTE MOYSER, bried in Sector C. We know from descendants writing in Ancestry.UK that both Robert and Edward ended their days in asylums, which may be why the family, which had many estates, preferred to live at a distance in Florence.

Like F129/ ROSA PULINI MADIAI, she is an Italian who turned Protestant, though, unlike the Madiai, she is of Florentine nobility, of the Guicciardini and the Pucci, widowed from the Morrochi whose palace is on the Via Cavour. Her brother Piero Giucciardini was arrested in 1851 and had to live in exile for his beliefs, founding the Italian branch of the Plymouth Brethren, returning to Italy in 1860. He left a fine library to the Biblioteca Nazionale They associated with the Protestant Walker family (C96/ CAPTAIN CHARLES MONTAGUE (HUDLESTON) WALKER, C97/ ANNA MARIA (RIDDELL) WALKER, both in Sector C, F14/ BIANCA [WALKER] BALDELLI, Sector F, etc.). We planted the rose 'Julia' by her tomb, not by that with the sculpture of Julia Savage Landor, and that very day Count Giucciardini by chance visited us.

He is called 'Ugo Giacomo Rose' in the English Cemetery's entry, he is buried in a magnificent Scipio sarcophagus in marble that matches that of Robert Anderson in pietra serena in Sector A (A2I 50). Cambridge-educated, Pastor Luigi Santini wrote of him: 'Hugh James Rose had a reputation as an able  Anglican theologian, indeed the beginner of the Oxford Movement, and his sermons in London attracted large gatherings. A child prodigy, most of his ministry was in Sussex where he had been born. For several years he was President of King's College. In poor health from asthma, he died at the height of his intellectual maturity, at 45'. The Webbs, visiting Hadleigh, transcribed the following concerning him: '1830 saw the beginning of the short but memorable ministry here of Hugh James Rose, who at the age of 35 was a Prebendary of Chichester Cathedral and had been chaplain to the Bishop of London and Vicar of Horsham. In 1832 he began the British Magazine which propagated High Church teaching and in July 1833, in the Deanery Tower, he hosted the Hadleigh Conference which could be said to have spearheaded the Tractarian Movement and the Catholic Revival in the Church of England. He left Hadleigh in September 1833 when he was appointed Professor of Divinity at the University of Durham and also vicar of Fairstead (Essex) and of St Thomas Southwark. He resigned Fairstead in 1835 to become Principal of Kings College London, but died two years later at the age of 45. He suffered badly from asthma and had exchanged Horsham for Hadleigh for the sake of his health.' The plaque in the church reads: HUGH JAMES ROSE, B.D./CHRISTIAN ADVOCATE IN THE UNIVERSITY/ OF CAMBRIDGE, PROFESSOR OF DIVINITY/ IN THE UNIVERSITY OF DURHAM AND/ AFTERWARDS PRINCIPAL OF KING'S COLLEGE/ LONDON WAS RECTOR OF THIS PARISH &/ DEAN OF BOCKING 1830-1833, BY HIS PIETY/ LEARNING & ELOQUENCE HE INSPIRED THE/ ACTIVE REVIVAL OF HER HISTORICAL FAITH/& DOCTRINE IN THE CHURCH OF ENGLAND/ THE TRACTS FOR THE TIMES WERE THE/ RESULT OF A CONFERENCE WHICH IN JULY/ 1833 MET AT HIS INVITATION IN THE DEAN/ ERY HOUSE .

Haakan Svensson, Archivist at Uppsala University, informs us that Ernst Jonas Fredrik Kjellander was born 1812 and died 1835 in Italy. His father, Bengt Kjellander (1781-1861) was a physician and a poet. Ernst Jonas Fredrik Kjellander graduated in 1833 with a masters degree in philosophy. Since 1831 he had suffered from tuberculosis and in 1834 he left for Italy, where he died. His travelling companion was a famous historian, F.F. Carlsson, who in 1842 gave an unpublished manuscript to Uppsala University Library containing biographical notes and Kjellander's manuscripts in philosophy.

Pastor Luigi Santini wrote: 'Of all the celebrities whose memories are preserved in this cemetery, he is certainly the one to whom Florence and Italy owe the greatest debt. His grave, refurbished for the Centennial of his death, is to the right, near the entrance to the burial ground. Born into a family exiled from France for religious reasons, Vieusseux was a Genevan, but born in Oneglia where his family had a business. Intending to make a career in business himself, he travelled widely, gaining invaluable human and practical experience. Shortly after the Restoration he settled in Florence, and there contributed to the creation of a common body of thought which would provide a cultural heritage for the new Italy of the Risorgimento. The best minds from every region gravitated to his reviews and publications, and men of diverse temperament and education learned to respect one another and work together in the interest of what united them. Palazzo Buondelmonti, in Piazza Santa Trinita` was the setting for the Gabinetto di Letture, the Gabinetto Vieusseux, today in the Palazzo Strozzi, which attracted talent and became a window on the world, useful for weeding out provincialism from the country's best minds and promoting the national Risorgimento.  Vieusseux did not participate in the Anglo-Florentine social whirl, but rather limited his friendships to his compatriots of the Evangelical Reformed Church and Italians seriously interested in learning and ideas. His life and activities have been widely publicized. If for no other reason than that Jean Pierre Vieusseux is buried here, this cemetery is a memorial to the passionate attachment and dedication to the cause of a united Italy which found its ideal focal point in Florence.' B8/ ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING, so passionately politically engaged with the Risorgimento, fretted about the hours Robert Browning spent in the Gabinetto Vieusseux, reading newspapers the Grand Duke of Tuscany otherwise had censored, because he told her women were not allowed membership, which was a blatant lie. Lady Blessington, Marian Wordsworth (F74), Feodor Dosteivsky, John Ruskin, Robert Browning, and countless others were readers there. [See Giuliana Artom Treves, Golden Ring , pp. 23-24.]

JLMaquay, Diaries 24/7/1842 Tennant dies 26/7/1842 'attended Tennant's funeral this morning'. He is buried beside the first husband and child (F71DAVID REID/MARY REID) of his wife, Mariquita Eroles, his grave much lower than theirs. A hard-working Anglican priest in Florence, judging from the archival records, he took pity on the Spanish widow of the disturbed self-harming David Reid, marrying her and not long afterwards dying himself. Holy Trinity Church voted to raise a monument to him there which his widow violently opposed, saying he had a perfectly good one in the English Cemetery. The plaque is now in the garden of the former Holy Trinity Church. Mariquita Tennant then emigrated to England, and founded the Clewer Sisters House of Mercy, training protitutes to be servants. She is buried there, not between her first and second husbands in Florence, though the space remains for her, and her Clewer tomb once was of an open and empty coffin, saying 'Non est hic, resurrexit', surrounded by an iron railing, which has since disappeared.  A blue plaque honours her in Windsor.

Genealogy of Barbadoes Families: 'Thomas Williams Trotman, born 31 July 1809, baptised 1 Jan 1812 at Christ Church. Assistant to Dr J.W.W. Carrington of St Thomas. Sailed to Liverpool, 1837. Later practised medicine in Florence. Died of typhus in Italy, July 1852. Married Elizabeth Wilhelmina Bellingham, daughter  of Samuel Ffennel Esq of County Tipperaray, and his wife Frances Grenville Bindon. Her will of June 1876, then living at N° 7 Vittorio Emanuele, Florence. Died 2 March 1891. No issue'. The Ffennells of Tipperaray were likewise a medical family. Elsewhere on Web, 'Thomas Trotman. M.D. introduced hares to Barbadoes in 1842'. At this period it was not understood that typhus was caused by lice in clothing. Maquay Diaries: 14/12/1853 'up at 6.30 to attend Mrs Tolley's funeral which was very badly managed by the Crossmans (B99/ REVD GEORGE BRICKDALE CROSSMAN) who had taken all on themselves, no pall bearers and no attendants but Gregory Trotman and myself. Old [Seymour Kirkup?] also came but had not been informed or invited. Rain continued all day'. Is Gregory a brother of Thomas who has no children. We could mention at this point Sarah Parker Remond, the Black American friend of Douglass, Mazzini and Garibaldi, who studied and practised medicine in Florence and who is buried in Rome's Protestant Cemetery. It was possible in the nineteenth century for families from what were then the Colonies to come to Europe and establish themselves with respect.

HENRIETTA MARIA HAY/ SCOTLAND/ TO THE MEMORY OF/ HENRIETTA MARIA HAY/ DAUGHTER OF ROBERT HAY ESQ/ OF LINPLEM  EAST LOTHIAN/ SCOTLAND/ BORN 8 DEC/ 1842 DIED 9 FEB 1875

Her father, Robert Hay, of Linplem, was an Egyptologist. He purchased the former convent of Nunraw, but was ill-fitted for farming after his years (1826-38) as a leader in an archaelogical expedition to Egypt which yielded fruitful results for the British Museum. He published (1840) a folio work entitled 'Illustrations of Cairo' and had brought home to Scotland the slave captured by Ottoman Turks he ransomed in Alexandria, Kalitza Psaraki, daughter of the chief magistrate in Crete, as his wife. See http://www.saudiaramcoworld.com/issue/200302/the.lost.portfolios.of.robert.hay.htm in which we realize we have a companion tale to Champollion and Rosellini's epedition to Egypt and Nubia, a companion tale even to NADEZHDA DE SANTIS (B58),  echoed in HIRAM POWERS(B32) ' 'Greek Slave' and in ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING(B8)'s impassioned sonnet to that sculpture.. When the purchase of Nunraw was finally completed in 1860, Robert commenced extensive restoration work on the house but he died in 1863 before completing it. His son, Robert James Alexander Hay, then 23 - was at Cambridge - where he took an M.A. The young Laird continued the work of restoring the "castle", and thus in 1864 discovered the painted ceiling, dating back to 1610. Like his father, R. J. A. Hay was fond of travel and in 1875 brought home as his bride from Florence Caterina Maria Teresia, third daughter of Marchese di Monte Castello of Tuscany. When he inherited Nunraw, the property was already burdened with large debts and these soon increased. Eventually, in 1880, Mr. Hay decided to break the entail and he was living in Florence with his wife and children when the sale to Walter Wingate Gray, Esq., was finally completed, while his sister lived at B8/ ELIZABETH BARRETT BROWNING and Robert Browning's Casa Guidi. (It was republican Elizabeth Barrett Browning who changed its name from Palazzo Guidi, opposite the Palazzo Pitti, to 'Casa Guidi'. During these years the family of ANNA BROWN (E24), and that of CHAPMAN STANSFIELD MARSHALL (E148) also had that address. One can only assume these families had different apartments within the palace, while using her naming for its cachet.) Miss Hay dies a spinster, but with her married brother, his Italian wife, and two nephews living nearby. Thus we see a Tuscan connection with this Scottish family and we realize that Henrietta Maria Hay herself, from her mother, is half-Cretan, part Greek. The widow of William Hay, of the same Clan Hay, FRANCES ANNE (OGLE) HAY (F56), lived at Lungarno 30.

Her father, Captain Carpenter, Ford Cottage, became a member of the Berwickshire Naturalists' Club, April 16, 1833. Her tomb gives the statue of a naked grieving child holding a funeral garland, now half hidden amongst a holm oak's branches, on a base sculpted with bees, poppy pods and ouraboi, symbolizing royalty, death and eternity. We learn from the archives that the baby of an Italian father, given his anglicized name, was born, baptised and buried fifteen days before his English mother. She has most likely died from puerperal fever brought on by a delivery with unwashed hands. Ignaz Philipp Semmelweis, the Hungarian who had made this discovery in Vienna in 1847 but whose work was rejected by his medical colleagues, had himself died of septicaemia in an insane asylum two years previously.

The Italian husband, Lorenzo Capei, a medical doctor, and his four remaining children, mourn the death following childbirth with twins of his wife, the daughter of a veterinarian from Essex who had lived in Naples and Livorno. Her brother, Joseph Samson Gamgee, was an outstanding English medical doctor. Following education on the Continent he too became interested in veterinary surgery and wrote several papers, the first when he was 16. He then began medical studies at University College Hospital in London. For a period he shared lodgings with Joseph Lister (1827-1912) – later Baron Lister of Lyme Regis – the founder of antiseptic surgery. While he studied medicine, he became a Member of the Royal College of Surgeons of England in 1854, subsequently a Fellow of the College of Surgeons in Edinburgh. He worked at the Royal Free Hospital. Being multi-lingual, Gamgee travelled widely throughout Europe for further studies in Paris, Brussels, Vienna, Florence and Pavia. In Paris he became a friend of Louis Pasteur (1822-1895) and worked at the University of Paris. Gamgee worked for a period as a surgeon at University College Hospital, and then tended the wounded from the Crimean War (1853-1856) at the Anglo-Italian Hospital in Malta. (See also A48/ SIR DAVID DUMBRECK.) Most of Gamgee's professional life was spent in Birmingham. He came there in 1857 and was elected to the medical staff of The Queen’s Hospital, founded in 1841. Here he performed a successful amputation of a man's leg at the hip joint. He was noted for washing his hand before as well as after performing surgery. Gamgee was interested in all hospital matters and is remembered for his great efforts to improve hospital conditions, and occasioned the building of a new hospital wing. Gamgee had a great knowledge of literature and was a busy and elegant writer as well as an outstanding speaker and hard-working surgeon. Emma's babies, at least, survive her.

The father and month- old daughter are buried together. Always of an excitable temperament he had self-harmed, leading to his own death, at the birth of his child. The deaths of the two babies take place within days of each other. Clearly Rev Tennant sought to console the family, particularly the two sisters, ending by marrying the now-widowed Mariquita Eroles Reid Edgeworth. The tombs were already illegible at the beginning of the twentieth century, Notes and Queries tells us.

/ MARIAN WORDSWORTH/ ENGLAND/ WORDSWORTH

The Webbs tell us that Rev John Wordsworth, of Brigham, Cumberland, son of the poet, married his third wife  Marian Dolan at St James, Picadilly, officiated by Derwent Coleridge, Samuel Taylor Coleridge's third son. She is the daughter of Luke Dolan of Galway. They have a child, Dora, born in the Lake District in 1858. By 1861 they may have been on the Continent as they do not appear in that Census. On 28 November Mrs Wordsworth signs her name in the membership book of the Gabinetto Vieusseux. Her death notices appear in the Pall Mall Gazette, the Times and the Morning Post, noting that her husband is Rev. John Wordsworth, Vicar of Brigham, Cumberland. An earlier marriage to Isabella (Curwen) Wordsworth was in difficulty when she became ill following childbirth and the pair journeyed to Rome where John had an affair with a sixteen-year-old Italian girl, promising to marry her when his wife died, Henry Curwen threatened to tell John's bishop and informed William Wordsworth, both parents willing their money to the grandchildren only. Isabella, her children restored to her, died at Bagni di Lucca in 1848: Kate Summerscale, Mrs Robinson's Disgrace. Sothebys in 2010 sold William Wordsworth's annotated copy of Southey's Poems, which Rev. John Wordsworth presented to his wife, Marian Wordsworth, 17 August 1866: Signed 'W.

CONSTANCE CECILIA (BULKELEY) DE BOURBEL/ ENGLAND/ L'AN 936 CONSTANCE CECILIA/ BULKELEY/ MARQUISE DE BOURBEL/ MONTPINCON/ DE 31 ANS D'AGE/ FLORENCE LE 9 AVRIL 1838

This young cosmopolitan is christened, 1806, in Lisbon, Portugal, then is married to Augustus Harold de Bourbel de Monpicon Marquis De Bourbel, playboy and fraudster, on 28 Mar 1828 in British Embassy Chapel, Paris, and at the Madeleine, and dies at 31 in Florence, the Times noting this is in childbirth, having been deserted by her husband in the last month of her pregnancy. Maquay attends her funeral. She has an elaborate tomb with her coat of arms. From the Web we learn that their daughter, who survived, Constance Georgina Louise de Bourbel de Monpicon Countess Wachtmeister (1838-1910), and even more of a Citizen of the World, was a close friend of Helena P. Blavatsky. She was born on March 28, 1838, in Florence, Italy. She lost her parents, the Marquis de Bourbel, formerly of the French diplomatic service, and Constance Bulkley, when she was very young and was sent to an aunt in England, where she lived, and in 1863 married a cousin, Count Karl Wachtmeister, then Swedish and Norwegian minister at the Court of St. James. After three years, they moved to Scandinavia, where her husband served as a government minister in Copenhagen and Stockholm. Wachtmeister was widowed in 1871. She had one son, Count Axel Raoul, a well-known musical composer in his day. Wachtmeister joined the Theosophical Society in 1881 and met H. P. Blavatsky in London in April 1884. She was secretary and treasurer of the Blavatsky Lodge in London and also worked for the Theosophical publishing company there, contributing generously to its funds. In 1887, Wachtmeister, the Keightleys, and Blavatsky acquired a large house at 17 Lansdowne Road, London, where Blavatsky continued to write The Secret Doctrine. In March 1888, the President, Henry S. Olcott, who had just finished a strenuous Indian tour, decided to leave Adyar, the Theosophical headquarters near Madras (now Chennai), India, and recuperate at Ootacamund. He held a meeting of the Executive Council, which appointed Wachtmeister as an additional secretary to the Western Section of the TS. In 1891, Olcott formed a League of Theosophical Workers, of which Wachtmeister became the first president; later that year, after the death of Blavatsky, Wachtmeister traveled to Adyar, where Olcott appointed her as president of the Women' s Education League, which worked to further the education of Indian women. Olcott had kept a diary covering the years since his first meeting with Blavatsky in America (1874). In 1893 he asked Wachtmeister to arrange for its publication. She wanted Olcott to delete passages that she considered derogatory to Blavatsky. Olcott did not agree, so he had the diary published as Old Diary Leaves (London: Putnam, 1895). Late that year, Wachtmeister, Besant, and Bertrand Keightley rented a property on four acres of land at Benares (now Varanasi), which eventually became the headquarters of the Indian Section. In February 1895, Olcott learned that William Q. Judge was considering secession from the Society; he left immediately for Calcutta to consult with Wachtmeister and Annie Besant regarding the best course of action. At the 1896 Adyar convention, Olcott paid glowing tribute to Wachtmeister in his presidential address, saying that she, "after performing prodigies of platform, social, and private work in Australasia, is now devoting herself enthusiastically to the helping of the American loyalists to reconstitute their Section." Annie Besant went to America in March 1897 to help rebuild the Section, which had been devastated by the Judge secession. She was met in New York by Wachtmeister, who travelled with her on a long tour that included lectures in seventy cities. After a considerable period in America, in 1899 Wachtmeister did an extensive lecture tour of France and India, resulting in the formation of many new lodges. Wachtmeister published an important account of her early association with Blavatsky as Reminiscences of H. P. Blavatsky and "The Secret Doctrine" (1893). She died, September 23, 1910.

Of a Swiss family, he was born in Berlin and served in the Dutch Navy. His father and uncle led Anglo-Dutch forces against Napoleon at Waterloo, his father countermanding Wellington's order for the Dutch troops to evacuate Quattre Bras. Willem Anne Constant de Rebecque was a staunch follower of Auguste Comte's Positivism, and was staying in Florence's Piazza Santa Novella working on the translation into Italian of Comte's Cathechisme positiviste when he fell ill with smallpox, dying in Santa Maria Nuova hospital. His brother Charles ordered his tombstone. He is buried near his Positivist relative F103/ CHEVALIER HENRI D'ARLENS (father, Marc Antoine Casanove d'Arlens, mother, Constance Charlotte de Constant Rebecque). A further relative, Benjamin Constant, was associated with Madame de Staël. A descendant was one of the winners of the Nobel Peace Prize in 1909. It is interesting that this Cemetery clusters the Positivists in this Sector F, the Swedenborgian Spiritualists in Sector B, while Freemasons are in Sectors C (British) and F (American, the Harts).

He was a warm friend, a tender parent, an affectionate husband, an indulgent master, an able man of business, and a most excellent country gentleman. The great national design of a Rail Road from Glasgow to Berwick, now in contemplation, owed its origin to his ingenuity; and, when carried into execution, it will remain an honourable monument of his enlightened views, his sound judgement, and his indefatigable and persevering activity. While private worth and public usefulness are held in esteem, the memory of this gentleman will be dear to his numerous friends, and to the populous neighbourhood in which he resided.' He worked with members of the Hay family (see F56/ FRANCES ANNE (OGLE) HAY, F53/ HENRIETTA MARIA HAY in this Sector) and with Telford on this scheme for a pre-steam railroad to transport the iron and coal from his mines. His second daughter has died a spinster at 36.

THOMAS FRASER/ SCOTLAND/ THOMAS FRASER OF EXKADALE/ IN INVERNESSHIRE/ WHO DIED AT FLORENCE/ ON THE 2 DAY OF NOVEMBER 1869/ AGED 62 YEARS/ DEEPLY LAMENTED

His father was Hugh Fraser and he grew up in Eskadale, Invernessshire, Scotland. See Captain Hugh Fraser, of Eskadale (c1720-1801), who may be his grandfather, son of Alexander Fraser 3rd of Eskadale & Isabel Fraser - raised on the Lovat estates, Hugh 'carryed arms' as a gentleman volunteer in the ranks of General Blakeney's 27th Foot (Enniskillens) during the Cartenega expedition of 1740 in the West Indies. He survived the catastrophic death rate caused by rampant sickness and was made ensign in 1742; fought at Culloden with his regiment in 1746 and was promoted to lieutenant on September 4, 1754.  In the summer of 1757, he came to North America with the 27th Foot to participate in the expedition against Louisbourg. When it was aborted, he and his regiment were assigned to Fort Edward for the winter.  He fought at the Battle of Ticonderoga in 1758 and returned the following year with his regiment for Amherst's successful expedition against Ticonderoga and Crown Point. He is the likely author of an anonymous letter fragment relating to the aftermath of Ticonderoga in which he refers to a brother named "Wullie" who also served in the battle. This may have been William Fraser, snr, a "gentleman volunteer" of the 42nd who was commissioned ensign in the 80th Foot (Gage's Light Infantry) on December 27, 1757; promoted lieutenant September 25, 1760, and killed in action five years later on the Niagara Portage, September 14, 1763. In 1760, Hugh marched on Montreal as part of Brigadier Haviland's army and met up with Murray and Amherst's armies on September 13, 1760. The following year he was at Crown Point, the senior or eldest lieutenant with his regiment which was warned off for the Caribbean campaign against Martinique and Guadeloupe. He was exchanged to the 78th on promotion to captain on October 23, 1761. He commanded a company at Quebec when the regiment was disbanded in December 1763; retired on half-pay. The son is a neighbour to the Smiths of Bolton Street, Piccadilly, when in London.

JLMaquay, Diaries 15/7/1840 goes to Leghorn following the sudden death of Mrs Chichester who died on 14th curious accounts from the servant, it was settled during the day by White that should go down to see about it' Maquay waits for the arrival of her husband from Naples and returns to Florence on 20/7. 22/7/1840 attends Mrs Chicheter's funeral 'quite private.' Her tomb is elegant with lacrimals, classical vases for tears, and placed in the area originally used for burying infants, in this case over the child who predeceased her. A further indication of the family's taste is the exquisite Blake watercolour they owned, still at Arlington Court. The Webbs note the following families are connected: Chichester, Whyte, Moyser, Baldelli, Fleetwood Wilson, Walker, Riddell.

Here the Marchesa Louisa Guadagni buries her mother and will also bury her sister's husband in this cemetery (E63/ ISAAC LUMLEY). Again an English woman marries into an Italian family, in this case of one of Florence's nobility, a family which owned palaces and Dante manuscripts. Sarah's husband Colonel Sir Francis Lee served in the Royal Marines where the pay was low and promotion much slower than in the regular army or navy. He spoke to this issue in Parliament in 1838, noting his pay was but £700 a year. He died suddenly while still on active duty, 29/10/1841, at Woolwich, the news reaching his wife in Florence (Genteman's Magazine, Elizabeth Maquay, Diary 7 58v). Allori inscription: SACRED/ TO THE MEMORY OF THE/ MARCHESA/ LOUISA GUADAGNI/ DAUGHTER OF/ SIR FRANCIS AND LADY LEE/ BORN 5TH DEC 1819/ DIED 30TH APRIL 1886.

ARTHUR BLUETT/ ISLE OF MAN/
SACRED TO THE MEMORY OF ARTHUR BLUETT / . . . THE ISLE OF MAN . . . / . . . / WHO DEPARTED THIS LIFE THE 25 OF APRIL 1861 IN THE 26TH YEAR OF HIS AGE DEEPLY REGRETTED/ I KNOW THAT MY REDEEMER LIVETH/ JOB 19.25 ACTS

Arthur Bluett was listed in the Isle of Man census, 1841, when  he was six years old. His father was High Bailiff of the Island. High Bailiff Laughton's Reminiscences, published in Douglas, Isle of Man, 1916, gives the following humorous account:
The settlement of this case immediately preceded a very bright Summer vacation, wherein Henry Watts, Arthur Bluett, Dr. Cox, and I made up a happy quartette to visit the English Lakes, Low-wood Cottage Ambleside, being our headquarters. En route, we spent one night at the Globe Hotel, Cockermouth, the birthplace of Wordsworth, where the only sleeping accommodation we could obtain was two double-bedded rooms. We tossed up, and it fell to Arthur Bluett's lot to occupy a bed in my room.
We were to start the next morning at eight sharp by the one and only coach of those times; and, acting upon the advice of a gentleman staying in the Hotel, who warned us that visitors frequently missed the coach on account of the " Boots " forgetting to call them, we carefully booked our seats, and impressing upon the Landlord the absolute importance of our being awakened not a minute later than half-past six, we retired to bed. Arthur Bluett slept the sleep of a weary traveller. I awoke early, and found to my surprise, that it was only half-past three. It was a lovely Summer morning–so bright and sunny that it might have been ten o'clock. I beheld Arthur in his bed, giving conclusive signs, both aural and ocular, of heavy slumber; and I felt that the occasion might be improved.
I quietly got out of bed, went over and took his watch out of his bed-pocket, altered the hour from halfpast three to a quarter to eight, replaced it, and returned to my bed. I then commenced making huge yawning noises, as though reluctantly awaking, which soon aroused him. I remarked, in a sleepy sort of way, that it seemed late, and asked him to look at his watch, which, in a half-awake sort of manner he did. The moment he saw it, what a change in his action! He literally sprang out of bed, made madly for the bellpull, at which he violently tugged as if the house were on fire. He then rushed to his clothes and began dragging them on; then another frantic pull at the bellrope, and a still more frantic rush to his clothes, at the same time calling excitedly to me to get up.
Presently the Landlord appeared at the door in his night costume, and evidently in great alarm, asked, "What's the matter, gentlemen?"
"Matter," said Arthur, opening the door, "you know what's the matter! Here we are never called, and the Coach starting in ten minutes, you ought to be ashamed of yourself "
" Why, sir, the Coach does not start until eight o'clock."
" I know that." replied Arthur, still hurrying on his clothes, " how are we to get dressed and have breakfast in ten minutes ? "
" Ten minutes, sir! Why, it's not much more than half-past three! "
" What! " said Arthur, darting a look across at me.
Now during this scene of excitement I had been holding the bed clothes up so that my face should not by visible, for I was shaking with smothered laughter. Directly he turned towards me, he, from the movement of the bed clothes, guessed how it was, and made for me with a bound. But I was prepared, and wound the clothes tightly around me, shouting with laughter, which I no longer tried to suppress.
After apologising to the Landlord, Arthur then quietly undressed and returned to bed; and we both enjoyed several hours of refreshing slumber.
Poor Arthur! He was a general favourite. He now sleeps in a churchyard in Florence. Doubtless he will be awakened in good time for the last coach!

The figure on the tomb is Mrs Walter Savage Landor, Julia ThuilIier Savage Landor, mourning the death of her son Arnold Savage Landor whom she did not permit her husband to see while he was growing up. At the end she threw her husband out of the Villa Gherardesca in San Domenico, Fiesole, that he had given them, leaving him homeless in the streets of Florence until the Brownings took care of him, lodging him with their former maid, Lily Wilson, in Via della Chiesa. Not a happy marriage. Walter had been much in love with an earl's daughter, Rose Aymler, writing exquisite quatrains to her. She died of fever in India and is buried there with his verse on her tomb. Then he met Julia Thuillier, the pretty daughter of a bankrupt Swiss banker, at a dance in Bath and married her. Their son Arnold is described by a family member as being paralyzed with mad eyes, sounding very much like a syphilis patient. In less unhappy days she had her portrait with her children Arnold and Julia painted by Trajan Wallis, the son of A64/ GEORGE AUGUSTUS WALLIS, who is buried in Sector A. She spends a fortune on the son's tomb, nothing for her husband's. Walter Savage Landor's is at A29, this one for their son as far from him as she can get, with her back turned to it.

Rosa had been a servant in England for 17 years, her husband having a brother in America. During the Austrian occupation of Florence, 1851-1852,  Francesco and Rosa Madiai were imprisoned, then exiled, for being Italians who became Protestant, Rosa translating the Bible into Italian which was forbidden. Her husband died three years earlier in Switzerland, his health, both physical and mental, broken, and is buried there. She returned from exile in 1859, living simply in Piazza del Carmine. A29/ WALTER SAVAGE LANDOR's last Imaginary Conversation is of the Cardinal of Florence pleading with Francesco Madiai in his prison cell that he reconsider and reconvert to Catholicism, offering him in return freedom and his wife. His reply, 'I love my wife, but I love God more'. He wrote this as part of a world-wide campaign to release these two prisoners of conscience, a sort of earlier day Amnesty International.

Elizabeth Okell of Chester comes from a long line of similarly named women in that city and, widowed, lives to a ripe old age. She has seemingly raised her son speaking English. Again this is a mixed English/Florentine marriage, celebrated here by an Egyptian obelisk out of Champollion and Rosellini's book. Her husband, Dottor Angiolo Grazzini, appears in a court case involving the inheritance of a chapel and its benefice in San Giovanni Valdarno in 1831, a law suit which he loses.

Often our English women marry Italian men, while American women rarely do so. Here it seems that Henrietta Ann has been married twice to Italians, the first time to Giovanni Biagio, the second to Domenico Tomei, from Certaldo near Siena, both predeceasing her, her daughters by her first marriage being Maria Ann and Mary Rosina, who remember, according to the tombstone, their English, while forgetting their father.

This simple slab commemorates the Swiss Erminio Hermann, husband to a Maria of the Vital family (buried in a cluster in Sector D, D120), both from the Rumantsch-language region of Switzerland. While it speaks of 'ashes/ceneri', at this period cremation was still forbidden and is only an archaicized figure of speech. In Swiss fashion we know not only his father's name, Jacques Armon, but also that of his mother's maiden name, Mengia Jon.
