MARTIN U 15 M Milton Gravesend, Kent, England Rel: Son Occ: Mariner Blanche MARTIN 13 F Milton Gravesend, Kent, England Rel: Daur Occ: ScholarDear Ray, I was interested to read your message, but I believe much of it to be in error. I have recently been writing a monograph about Captain John Francis MARTIN, which begins as follows:- Captain John Francis Martin, and some mention of his distinguished associates, 1797 - 18?? In 1734 Hayward Rush, the navigation instructor at Wivenhoe on the River Colne , near Colchester, drew a map of that area showing Wivenhoe Park as "the seat of Matthew Martin Esq, late Member of Parliament for the Antient (sic) Borough ofColches ter, who built it and resides here, when spared from the East India Company of which he is a Director". The MARTIN family continued to live there as late as 1777, when HM Sloop PRINCESS MARY under the command of Captain Robert Martin hadcaptured a Spanish privateer and brought the hapless crew to Wivenhoe, ready for imprisonment in Colchester Castle. ?Soon afterwards Mary, daughter of Michael and Elizabeth Cole, married Joe Martin in the church there in 1789 and in due coursetheir firs t-born, Mary, married Thomas Harvey of the local ship-yard; one of their grandsons was a famous actor, Sir John Martin-Harvey. After Mary, Joe and Mary Martin were blessed with two more children; the elder, Harlow, had a much prizedknowledge of the shoal-waters on the Essex Coast, with a famous reputation for smuggling. Their younger son, John Francis Martin, born in Wivenhoe on 11th September 1797, was trained as a Seaman and then served as a Midshipman in the RoyalNavy. We have his naval telescope, and he is believed to have served with Captain Beaufort soon after the Napoleonic Wars, until the Government imposed huge reductions in the size of the Navy, and he found himself looking for a job. ?About thattime, Henry Willia m Earl of Uxbridge (later elevated as the newly created Marquess of Anglesey), who had lost his leg when commanding the Cavalry at the Battle of Waterloo, found that the field sports he had previously enjoyed were no longersuch a pleasure. He th en decided to concentrate more on yachting, a sport he had enjoyed much earlier, even sailing from Roberts’ Yard when he was a school-boy at Westminster, and racing his 4-ton cutter, GRIFFEN, with the Cumberland Fleet onthe River Thames in 1789; including on 14th July that year – at the same time as the citizens of Paris were storming the Bastille. In due course, he had joined that Fleet which soon became the Royal Thames Yacht Club and, later, as they wereformed, he joined a number of others round the coast. He had been one of the 42 founder members of the Yacht Club, as it was known in 1815, later to become the Royal Yacht Squadron. At his home on the Menai Straits he kept a 42 ton cutter,LIBERTY, and decided to have anothe r yacht built for his use on the Thames and the Solent. That is the story as I believe it. More anon, Regards from John Constant. Further to my first answer, herewith a note written in 1964 by Mary Frances Lucas (She was the widow of a man called Keene). Her grand-mother was Mary Martha Martin, the wife of Amos IV (Constant), the lady who had had 21 pregnancies, the lastof which was twins = total 22 ! And so – the Ritchies; a monograph by Frances Lucas Keane. It was during the 1890’s, when I was a small girl, that I used to be taken to see Great-Uncle Joe Martin and his spinster sisters, Great-Aunt Bessie and Great-Aunt Caroline who lived together in Parrock St, Gravesend, not far from the top ofWind mill Hill. Great-Uncle Joe was a big, tall, kind man, and the Great-Aunts were thin, tall, and always dressed in black. At each visit, they gave me a tiny glass of ginger wine and a piece of caraway seed cake. I just hated the cake, but Iate it because I did like the ginger wine! Great-Uncle Joe was not always there, because every morning he walked down the hill to the town and had a dozen oysters, and a glass of stout. (Oysters were about a shilling a dozen!)?These threepeople had a sister, our direct ancestress, Mary Martha Constant (nee Martin), and she also lived in Gravesend in Harmer Street, a road leading straight to the river.?At the age of 15, she had married Amos Constant, whose father, also Amos had,strange to sa y, married in 1806 an Ann Martin, the daughter of a William Martin to whom he was apprenticed. These ancestors Mary Martha Martin and Amos Constant ran away for their wedding in 1838 in Shorne Church, near Gravesend. Though MaryMartha’s parents lived for the most part in Gravesend, they also had a family home in Wivenhoe, Essex. It was a small cottage, called Vine Cottage situated right on the shore. Mary Martha’s sister Caroline, who survived her brothers andsisters, sold the cottage to George John Lucas (my father) about the turn of the century, and its photograph may be seen on the preceding page. On that same page are photographs of our ancestors John Francis Martin, Master of the Marquis ofAnglesey’s yachts, and that of his wife Mary Ann, nee Busby. A sister of John Francis, Mary Martin married Thomas Harvey, the son of a builder of racing yachts who also lived in Wivenhoe, and Mary Martin & Thomas Harvey were grandparents of thefamous actor, John Martin-Harve y. The Martins and Harveys seem to have abounded in and around the Colchester district. The Harveys, as I have noted, were well-known builders of racing yachts, and the Martins sailed ships. Sir John Martin-Harveyin his autobiography states that the Harveys were associated with a Captain Martin RN of Wivenhoe Hall in the privateering adventures of the early nineteenth century. He also records that a certain Captain Robert Martin of H.M. Sloop, PrincessMary, captured a Spanish privateer in 1777 and brought the luckless crew to Wivenhoe before their imprisonment in Colchester Castle. Thus, it seems possible that the Martin and Harvey families may have been associated long before John Francis’sister Mary married Thomas Harvey. O ur ancestor Mary Martha Constant, nee Martin, eldest daughter of John Francis, and sister to Joseph, Bessie and Caroline, was a wonderful woman. She was tall and had beautiful features. She had fifteenchildren and brought twelve to maturity; her sons were all fine men, over 6ft tall, and good-looking. ?She was devoted to her husband Amos who was a Trinity House ship’s pilot and he was utterly dependent on her. Though doubtless he made a verygood living, things cannot have been easy wit h so large a family, but what a wonderful manager she was! The main meal always began with a rich suet pudding, served with a well-flavoured meat gravy, and then, edge having been taken off appetite,came the meat course followed by puddings. She was born on 22 Aug 1823, married in 1838, and died in 1898 (aged 75), several years before her husband Amos who survived until 1904. Though it has been discovered that this Amos Constant was one ofa family of five, little except the names of hi s brothers and sisters is known. However, his father was also named Amos and his mother’s maiden name, strangely enough was Ann Martin! Whether or no she was any relation to John Francis isuncertain.?Mary Martha Constants fifth and youngest daug hter, Annie married George John Lucas and his mother was Frances Mary, nee Coneannon, with whom Joseph had eloped about 1852. When Frances Mary Lucas was expecting her second child (GeorgeJohn) the Indian Mutiny broke out * and her husband went out to India as a "Gentleman Volunteer", and was killed in the siege of Lucknow, and was mentioned in Brigadier Inglis’ despatches. His son George was born on July 24th 1855, and when hewas 28 years old, he married Annie Constant. They must hav e been a striking couple! He with flaming red hair and green eyes, and Annie with black hair and huge dark brown eyes and olive complexion. He was a very skilled dentist and he workedterrifically hard, and built up a very successful practise, at first in Gravesend, and later in London – at one time travelling to London, working there all day, and returning to an evening surgery in Gravesend! He gave his six children amarvellous education and a lovely home. Still working – he died in 19 32.?Annie Constant and George Lucas were temperamentally as different as were their physical attributes. He energetic, extrovert, opinionated and she quiet, contained andthough capable of loving intensely – quite unable to express her deep feeli ngs, except in most exceptional circumstances. She was beautiful, even in her old age – as her photographs show – a lovely person – she had lovely hands. Recorded by Mary Lucas Keene – 1964 * On verifying dates, it is obvious that George John Lucas (born 1855) was in his first year of life when the Mutiny broke out 1856. Sadly, the photographs are not now available. Regards from John Constant.
