He remained in that area for a period during which he served as Assistant Curate of St Georges Cathedral, Capetown. On 18th December 1859 he was ordained as a priest by the Bishop of Cape Town. He then became Acting Chaplain of St John, Wynberg, Cape of Good Hope from 1859 to 1861. During that time in 1860 he received a testimonial letter for his job as Chaplain to the depot for military invalids.

He must have felt that his health had recovered because his next position was as Assistant Stipendiary Curate of St Mary's in Vincent Square, Westminster from 1861 to 1862. All of these appiointments are recorded in Crockfords Clerical Directory dated 1855.

Albert married Ann Lomas Alliott on 6th May 1862 in St Georges, Hanover Square. In some ways this is a strange connection. Ann was the daughter of Francis Simes Alliott of Nottingham. Her family were ministers of the Castle Gate Congregational Church in that city. The Alliott family hostory has been documented by Robert Darlington.

The newly weds left immediately for Albert's new appointment as Stipendiary Curate in the parish of Leigh with duties at St Paul's Westleigh, Lancashire. He was there for three years until 1865. It was at Leigh that the first of his six children was born.

In 1865 he again moved and this time became Curate at Castlemorton, part of the parish of Longdon in Worcestershire.

Alberts frequent moves and his continuing duties as Curate rather than as Vicar suggest a man who may not have been easy to manage. David Morris suggests that he may have been a difficult person to deal with. His energies have led him to run into problems with the higher management of the Church. While at Castlemorton he waged a successful campaign to recover money left for the relief of the poor of the parish. That money had been diverted to reduce the parish's poor rate and was therefore benefiting the ratepayers and not the poor. When a new Vicar arrived at Longdon there were differences of opinion between him and Albert which caused Albert to leave the parish for a new appointment.

The next four children of Albert and Ann were born during the nine years that they stayed at Castlemorton.

In 1874 Albert became the Rector of South Reston, Lincolnshire. Duties as Curate of North Reston were added in 1878. The "living" at North Reston belonged to the Jackson family whose complete family history has been written. The links to this family are detailed elsewhere.

Albert may have been showing poor health about this time and in 1883 he became Vicar of North Somercotes, a few miles east of South Reston on the coast of Lincolnshire. He died in the city of Lincoln on 14th October 1885. His grave and that of his wife Ann are in the next parish of South Somercotes. His will left his estate to his wife Ann who survived until 11th February 1900.

During his lifetime he received a number of honours including an honorary doctorate from the University of the South (USA) in 1875. He was also made a Brother Chaplain of the Order of St John of Jerusalem in 1868. He wrote on a number of areas presumably of his own interest and some of these are recorded in Crockfords 1885. Those interests included "visitation of the sick", "gravestones and epitaphs", Chrsitian antiquities", and " the history of Wesleyanism". David Morris reports that his obituary states that he became an authority on the design of church vestments.

He was survived by his six children.

Albert had an interest in family genealogy and found a Wood coat of arms. However this does not appear to have any connection with this family and may be that of Wood of Lancaster as noted in the "The General Armory" The dissertation refers to a Thomas Wood of Hackney and is dated 28th June 1634. This Thomas Wood had traced his ancestors through a Henry Wood to Thomas Wood of Burnley to Barney Wood and then to another Thomas Wood all of Burnley with the latter being a descendant of le Seigneur de Boys, Dauphin in France. This may well be the origin of the myth as stated earlier that our family is descended from French Hugenots. As we can trace our direct line to Chartham in Kent to around the same date as this was produced there is no evidence to back up any claim that we belong to the same line. There is however strong evidence that our descent to French Hugenots through Francoise (Frances) Thorel who married Thomas Wood in 1784.

He was there until his father moved to South Reston in 1874 where his father was the Rector of St Edith the small church adjacent to the home of the local land owner Howard Jackson. It is here that we find the closer relationship between the family of Albert and the Jackson's (mentioned in the notes related to Albert) in that the youngest child of Howard Jackson was Susan Rose Jackson, born in 1865 whom Francis married on the 18th June 1891.

Francis was intended for the clergy and was a student at Cuddeston Theological College when his father died in 1885. This required him to leave college before being ordained. He found work with The Mission to Deep Sea Fishermen which later became the Royal National Mission. he remained with this organisation until 1922 having been appointed its Secretary many years earlier.

The Superintendant of the Mission was Wilfred Grenfell (later Sir Wilfred, an energetic and charismatic man whose biography was written by J Lennox Kerr and published by the Ryerson Press, Toronto in 1959. In spite of all his positive attributes Grenfell was extremely disorganised with the business affairs of the Mission and this was to cause difficulties between Francis and his superior.

Francis undertook complex and difficult tasks on behalf of the Mission. On two occasions he was involved in the purchase of reindeer in Lappland and their transport to Labrador. once in 1907 for the Mission and again in 1921 for the Hudson Bay Company on secondment.

Francis had not forgotten his childhood friend Susan Rose Jackson and they married on 18th June 1891.

When he retired they lived for a while in Clevedon on the Somerset coast. In 1920 they built a thatched house called Little Picket in an old orchard in Cookham Dean, Berkshire. It is adjacent to the village church where Francis and Susan Rose are buried.

During his retirement Francis was busy with local affairs. he was a member of the Cookham Rural District Council, a Churchwarden, and a manager of the village Church of England School.

Sailed on SS Montcalm with wife and daughter Pamela from fathers home - West Pentire, Clevedon; Somerset arriving Quebec as above to stay with friend Mr P BUTLER. Eric died on 5 February 1971 in Victoria B.C., Canada.

 

Robert Darlington reports that Eric had a great fascination with things mechanical. His brother had trained in medicine and perhaps he disappointed the family by not engaging in a field that was more genteel.

At the age of 11 he was also sent to the boarding school called Mostyn House in Cheshire which was run by the brother of Sir Wilfred Grenfell. At the age of 14 he transferred to The City of London Boys School on the Thames Embankment. Later his training at an engineering company was ended when World War 1 broke out. Eric could have stayed with this reserved occupation but early in 1915 he joined tthe Royal Army Service Corps as a dispatch driver and ammunition truck driver, for the remainder of the war.

The sapphire mine in Montana had done well for a period during the war but by 1919 it was faltering and the family were not successful in selling it. Eric was offered the job of supervising its machinery and he spent four years doing that. The link between Eric and the Sapphire mine was through his wife's sister Mary Louise Howard JACKSON who married Edward Augustus Keller in 1877. His father was a jeweller and had invested in the mine. Information on the mine can be found at www.gemgallery.com/#yogo_sapphire_history and www.russellcountry.com/Yogo_sapphires.html but no mention of Eric or Keller can be found. When he decided to return to England he took passage on SS MELITA where he met Lilian Mary Sharps. They soon became engaged.

Eric set up a taxi business in Clevedon in Somerset and that is where they married on 24 July 1925. Lilians family had gone to Vancouver Island and she had lived with them for a period after the war. Business in Clevedon was not so good so Lilian convinced Eric to emigrate. Their first daughter Pamela Angell Wood was born in Clevedon and in 1929 they moved to Victoria.

Eric worked in a number of jobs through the Depression but principally with the bus company where he was a machinist. They purchased some land and a modest home off Carey Road. When World War II broke out Eric's skills as a machinist gained him an NCO position in the Royal Canadian Ordnance Corps. He worked at Signal Hill supervising the work on coast defence guns and other military equipment. By war's end he was a Warrant Officer and was awarded the British Empire Medal (MBE) for his services.

HM Dockyard was aware of his skills and they took him on to maintain and repair the gyroscopes in naval torpedoes. He then returned to Vancouver Island Coach Lines.

When he retired his love of machinery continued. He had a workshop in his back yard which was complete with a metal lathe and other equipment allowing him to construct model trains of exacting standards. In company with another "steam buff" who designed, and Eric built, working steam engines for small boats. Eric would take orders only from those with a true love of steam propulsion and at least one of his engines still appears at Victoria's annual classic boat show.

It was in lifting one of these engines that strained his heart and he died in 1973?

Eric and Babs had two daughters. Pamela Angell was born in Clevedon just before they emigrated. Pam married a widower Bruce Milburn and became mother to his two sons. A third son Kim was born after they married.

The second daughter, Wendy Howard was born in 1931 in Victoria and married Robert Darlington on the 5th April 1952.

 

Eric applied for admission as a Freeman of the City of London having recently served as a Private in the RASC in accordance with an Order of the Court of Common Council dated 20th May 1915. he was living at 30 Perryn Road Acton W3 the home of his Father at the time.

She appeared in the census in 1911 in Cricklewood, London. The address was: 75 Teignmouth Road. Residing with Uncle and Aunt - Richard and Cecily SHARPS.
