The Earle & Welford Families of Yorkshire, England 1268 - 1911
The Earle & Welford Families       of Yorkshire, England               1268 - 1911

Earle Family of Kingston-upon-Hull

Chapter Note

 

The following records centre on several branches of the Earle family. Perhaps the most well-known being George Earle, the son of a York bricklayer, who migrated to Hull c1776 and established himself as a stonemason, architect and speculative builder. He is first documented working in the region at Dalton Hall for the York-based architect Thomas Atkinson, when the steward records that 'George Earle has putt up the first flight of stairs, which looks very well'

 

There are also records for Francis Earle born at Bolton-on-Swale who c1862 made Kingston-upon-Hull his home from where he ran his successful Pharmaceutical business.

Chapter Note

 

Mary Hargrave was the daughter of a stone mason and carver-gilder, Jeremiah Hargrave, whose son Joseph was architect and surveyor of the town. One of the witnesses to the marriage was Charles Mountain, a bricklayer, plasterer and stuccoist who subsequently became one of Hull's most notable architects and builders. The George Earle was later involved with Charles Mountain on a number of projects including Hesslewood, the country house built for the Hull merchant and banker J R Pease. Although the accounts fail to reveal the precise nature of his contribution at Hesslewood, it was clearly considerable, as he received in excess of £1,200 from a total bill of £4,242 15s 5d

 

Ann Hargrave Earle can be found at Hessle Wood House in the 1851 census where she was employed as a governess to the Pease children

Chapter Note

 

Of the three sons of George and Mary Earle, George and Thomas established a business as Hull merchants who were, for a time, the town's leading importers of slate, stone and Italian marble. John joined his father's masonry business working as a mason and architect and was responsible for numerous competent, but conventional funery monuments in the East Riding and North Lincolnshire. By 1814 John was managing the Earle yard on Osborne Street, Hull.

 

The business flourished throughout the 1820's and John received a number of major commissions for architectural projects whilst continuing to provide a wide range of monuments. Competion soon stiffened though as an increasing number of architects and stone and marble masons became established in the town. These included George Bailey 'statuary and mason', John Wardby & Son 'sculptors of Hull and York', and particulary William Day Keyworth.

 

By October 1832, Earle's business had collapsed and John was declared bankrupt, though he managed to remain in business until his death in 1863 at a time where the names Earle and Keyworth were the only two sculptors listed in the local trades directory.

Chapter Note

 

Brother's Charles Earle and William Joel set up C and W Earle in 1845 having bought the Junction Foundry from James Livingston who built the first iron steam packet in 1831 (Calvert, 'A History of Kingston upon Hull')

 

The Earle brothers move to ship engineering happened at a propitious moment. Shipbuilding in early nineteenth-century Hull concentrated on wooden whalers and trade vessels under sail, but Livingston's iron steam packet marked the new direction in ship building. The Earles opened a shipyard at the east end of Victoria Dock after it opened in 1850 and by 1851 they employed 72 men. In 1853 their first steamship, the 'Minister Thorbecke', was launched. They initially rented land from the Hull Dock Company and papers about their association with this company over several years are at DEA/9-11 (Bellamy, 'Some aspects of the economy of Hull', Appendix III B)

Chapter Note

 

The 1850s was a good decade for shipbuilding for other reasons; the combination of increasing Australian trade with the need for ships for the Crimean war elevated demand. The opening of the Suez Canal in the late 1860s also stimulated shipping trade and, therefore, shipbuilding. Thus in 1863 the Earle brothers bought another 47 acres of land, this time on the banks of the Humber. Their enormous success reflects the success of Hull as a port at the time. Over 60% of their vessels were built for local firms and nearly two thirds of these were destined to become ships of the Wilson line based in Hull. Between 1854 and 1871 Thomas Wilson Sons and Company bought 55 ships and 38 of them were built by C & W Earle (Bellamy, 'Some aspects of the economy of Hull', Appendix III B).

Chapter Note

 

In 1870 Charles and William Joel Earle built their largest ship, the 'Canopus', a ship of 2800 gross tons. Charles then died suddenly and he was followed to the grave by William a year later, in 1871, at the age of only 49. They left behind assets of nearly a quarter of a million pounds. Some notes on the early history of the firm are to be found at DEA/1. William Earle sold the firm just before he died and it became a public limited company called Earle's Shipbuilding and Engineering Company Ltd. Notices of the sale are at DEA/7-8. The company was now owned by shareholders in London, Manchester and Sheffield and its fortunes fluctuated with the general fortunes of the English economy and, in particular, the shipbuilding industry (Bellamy, 'Some aspects of the economy of Hull', Appendix III B).

Chapter Note

 

Extracted from 'A Biographical Directory of Sculptors in Britain, 1660-1851'

The most talented and successful family member was Thomas Earle. He was born in Hull and began his career as a sculptor at the age of 12, when it was already evident that he had a talent for modelling. He was undoubtedly apprenticed to his father, John Earle, but supplemented his early education at the Mechanics’ Institute where his father was among the founder members. Since there was no school of art in Hull until 1861, the Mechanics’ Institute, established in 1825, was invaluable to aspiring artists, since it had a drawing class and a model room containing a ‘good collection of casts and models’ (Sheahan, 1868, 646). The Mechanics’ Institute commissioned Thomas Earle’s first public work in 1832, a statue of Dr John Alderson. When the statue was unveiled the Mechanics’ Institute was congratulated for encouraging an enterprising young artist, who ‘would at a future day, if blessed with life and health, deservedly rank with the most distinguished statuaries of Britain, or Europe’ (Hull Advertiser, 16 September 1831).

 

Thomas Earle left Hull c1830-31 and became a designer and modeller for Sir Francis Chantrey RA, remaining with him for between eight and twelve years. In January 1832, on Chantrey’s recommendation, he was admitted as a probationer at the Royal Academy and the following December became a student at the Academy schools. In 1839 he was awarded the Academy’s gold medal for the best historic group, Hercules deliverung Hesione from the sea monster, which was exhibited at the Academy in 1840.

 

By 1851 Earle had his own London studio at Vincent Street, Ovington Square. He competed for national commissions, including the monuments to Nelson and the Duke of Wellington, but it was his continued association with Hull that brought prosperity. Like his father and grandfather before him, Thomas Earle was a member of the Minerva lodge of freemasons in Hull. This fraternity played a significant role, for it brought sound professional associations with architects and builders and also led to patronage from fellow members including the Earls of Zetland and Yarborough. In 1846 Thomas married Mary, the daughter of a local builder, Frank Appleyard. The Appleyards had worked with the Earles on a number of building projects in Hull and were also freemasons. Earle’s friendship with another freemason, C S Todd, the town clerk of Hull, appears to have been instrumental in securing him the commission for Hull’s statues of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert. Freemasonry may also have played a part in Thomas Earle’s introduction to Sir Francis Chantrey, a member of the Royal Somerset & Inverness Lodge.

 

In February 1860 Todd wrote to Thomas Earle informing him that the Mayor, Z C Pearson, was to present Hull with a public park and that the authorities intended to commission a statue of the Queen, similar to Matthew Noble's figure in Peel Park, Manchester (Hull City Archives, BHH 115/716). Since both Todd and Pearson were freemasons, Earle must have been confident of securing the commission. Having agreed terms, Earle prepared a small model (Hull City Archives, BHH 97/369) which found favour with the Mayor who then announced his intention of presenting the townspeople of Hull with a statue of the Queen executed by ‘their townsman’ Thomas Earle (Hull City Archives, BHH 116/462).

 

Pearson was declared bankrupt in 1862, but his successor, Mayor W H Moss, agreed to pay for the statue, which was unveiled on 29 October 1863. On 7 November the Illustrated London News reported: ‘an intellectual expression has been produced, and the drapery and accessories, are elegant and graceful ... The statue of the Queen has received the approval of several members of the Royal family’. Having secured the commission for Queen Victoria's statue, Todd wrote to Earle in April 1863 to suggest that ‘with a little management’ a commission for a statue of Prince Albert might be forthcoming ‘as a companion' (Hull City Archives BHH 118/8). Earle’s initial proposal, for placing a figure of Prince Albert on the same pedestal as the statue of the Queen, was rejected. He won approval for a replica of his statue of Prince Albert executed for the Licensed Victuallers’ Asylum in Kennington. The Hull commission was again plagued by financial difficulties from the outset, but the statue of Albert was eventually unveiled on 14 October 1868.

 

Although Thomas Earle executed many portrait busts, few survive. His most ambitious and successful monument, to Thomas Ferres, has a life-sized figure of an angel supporting an exhausted seaman (60). A regular exhibitor at the Royal Academy and the British Institute, Earle had a passion for ‘ideal’ sculpture and his first work in the prestigious but often unremunerative genre was shown at the Academy in 1834, while he was still employed by Chantrey. In 1842 he exhibited the life-size relief, Abel and Thirza (168), which the Art Union considered ‘a fine conception wrought out with much ability’ (AU, 1842, 128). In 1844 he showed An ancient Briton protecting his family at Westminster Hall. The Literary Gazette maintained that ‘nothing could surpass the arrangement and composition of the female and children, and the modelling of the young ones [is] most exquisite and masterly’ (Lit Gaz, 1844, 483). When the work was exhibited the following year at the Leeds Polytechnic Exhibition it was described as ‘a master-piece, worthy of any age or nation’ a work that would ‘ensure the artist a fame that will endure for ever’ (Leeds Polytechnic exhib cat, 9 June, 1845, n p). Few of his ideal works were realised in marble, though the Earl of Yarborough commissioned two, Happy as a queen and Fisher boy.

 

Thomas Earle was the last sculptor member of the Earle family and he died without issue in May 1876. He was interred at Spring Bank cemetery in Hull and since he was still considered a local celebrity, a large funeral procession paid tribute to the memory of the town’s talented citizen. He is commemorated by a fine monument of his own workmanship at Holy Trinity, Hull.

 

His widow, Mary, sold some of the studio contents including a model of the Ferres monument, which went to Hull’s Trinity House Seaman’s Guild for £20. Several other works were donated to institutions including the South Kensington Museum. Mary Earle was still in possession of numerous pieces (now lost) in 1881, which she loaned to the exhibition of works of local arts held at the Hull Temperance Club.

Worthies - People of Note

Thomas Earle - This celebrated sculptor was born in Osborne Street, Hull, in May, 1810. Very early in life he manifested a talent for modelling, and at the age of 12 years he maybe said to have commenced his career as a sculptor. In 1830 he left his native town for London, and was shortly afterwards engaged by Sir Francis Chantrey as an assistant. He remained in this position for eight years, during which time he modelled and worked upon many of that eminent sculptor's best productions. About the same time, he studied at the Royal Academy, and in 1839 gained the gold medal and other honours. Fortunately for Hull, it possesses some of this eminent man's best works, notably, his statues of the Queen and Prince Consort, in Pearson's Park, and that of Edward I. in the Town Hall. The two former are described elsewhere. The latter is said to be the chief glory of Hull's Civic Hall, and it is questioned whether there can be found in England, the production of a modern sculptor, so perfect as is this figure of the English Justinian. The king is represented in giving to the authorities of Hull the Charter of its Incorporation. He wears the cope-like cloak of state. His left hand rests easily on the hilt of his sword, and the expression of his face is one of royal dignity. The figure is muscular and graceful. The pose is altogether natural and dignified. There are few statues to be compared to it in grandeur of conception and in finish of execution. Many other of Mr. Earle's works are to be seen in Hull. The statue of the late Prince Consort (eight feet high) in the grounds of the Licensed Victuallers' Asylum, Old Kent Road, London, and that of Harold, in the Mansion House, London, are the productions of his chisel. His sculptures, which are very numerous, are deservedly held in great esteem. He died in May, 1876, and was interred in the Hull General Cemetery, where there is a monument to his memory. There is also another beautifully sculptured marble monument to him in Holy Trinity Church here.

Burial Torquay

 

Susanna Catherina Elisabeth Baroness de Reede de Ter Aa, the beloved and honored wife of George Hudson Earle, who died febr. 24 1896 aged 36 & was buried at Torquay England

 

Chaper Note

 

Susanna 'Kitty' Earle was a niece of the last judicial costs or craft lady of the family Van Reede Ter Aa and married to a very rich Englishman, George Hudson Earle. In 1897 he gifted the six Van Reede windows in the church Nieuwer Ter Aa, in memory of his deceased wife (see example below)

 

In 1899 he added another window in the south transept of the church, in memory of an uncle and aunt of his wife. G.H. Earle also donated the beautiful English oxaalorgel, which first stood on the border between nave and choir, but was moved to the tower side during the restoration in 1956
