The following account of the Boase family and of persons with whom 
they have been and are connected in marriage is now printed for family use 
only ; and with the twofold object of preserving the information collected by 
the compilers of this work, and of eliciting from the various heads of families 
further and more accurate details about their own branches. This must 
therefore be considered in the light of a preliminary sketch to be filled up 
more fully on a future occasion. 

The difficulties of writing even a short work of this nature will be 
known to all who have been engaged in similar pursuits ; no apology is there- 
fore offered for the occurrence of a certain number of mistakes which were 
unavoidable, since almost every line contains a fact or a date. 

Mr. George Bown Millett of Penzance is now engaged in editing the 
earliest register of the parish of Madron, a work which will be useful to 
place beside this family history, as by its use it wdl be possible to verify 
many of the dates here mentioned and add further particulars. 

The Compilers desire that their relatives will kindly supply an account 
of errors and omissions, with additional matter respecting intermarriages and 
the pedigrees of families with which such marriages have taken place. 

It is hoped that this work may serve to keep up a feeling of relationship 
between families now scattered far and wide over Great Britain, but all 
tracing then- original descent to the county of Cornwall. 


The letter ;; in italics following after a name denotes that the reference is to the folding Pedigree sheet at the 
commencement of this volume. The figures refer to the columns of the text. It is also tn lie noted that in this Index 
all Christian and Surnames are spelt in one way only, notwithstanding the various spellings which are to be found else- 
where, and that as a rule one reference only is given to each page, although the name may occur more than once on the 
same page.

The Family of Boase (or Bowes) was settled in the 
parishes of Paul and Madron at the end of the sixteenth 
century. Ursula, daughter of William Bowes, was buried 
at Madron, 14 Dec. 1578 ; Joan, daughter of Edward Bowes, 
was buried at Paul, 16 Feb. 160^; and Cresten, daughter of 
Kichard Bose, was baptised 27 Feb. 160§, at Paul. The 
earlier registers at Paul unfortunately perished when the 
Spaniards burnt the place 23 July 1595. The name was at 
first usually spelt Bowes, but it is also spelt, like most other 
names at that time, in a variety of ways ; and the spelling 
Boase became the common one in the eighteenth century. 
Two entries, at Paul about the same person run thus : 
" Arthur, son of John Boase, bap. 1 Nov. 1652;" "Arthur 
Bowes married Florence, 18 June 1686." The present 
account is taken from a pedigree entered at the Herald's 
Office 1810 by Henry Boase, Esq., and duly recorded by Sir 
Isaac Heard, Garter King at Arms. It reaches from 1681 
to 1809, and has been supplemented from family informa- 
tion, from wills, and from the registers. The following 
notes supply additional particulars taken from these sources. 
The five marks * f || % § mean throughout "at Paul, 
Madron, Penzance, London, Dundee" respectively. 

Simon Bowes m. * 8 July 1676 Sara Shutford. He was 
probably son of the Simon who d. 1697. Administration of his 
effects was granted at Bodmin, 31 Aug. 1723, to his daughter 
Sarah, wife of John Bramble, yeoman. The will of his son 
John is dated at Chioon (in Paul) 9 Oct. 1721, and the pro- 
hate at Bodmin 1 Oct. 1722. By it he leaves to his sisters 
Sarah Bramble and Phillis Berryman equal shares of his 
lease lands, &c. ; to his sister Ursula Boase £20, to be paid 
to John Boson, gentleman, her trustee, within six years, the 
executors meanwhile paying him 20 shillings yearly for 
her : the executors are his brothers-in-law, John Brambel 
and John Berryman ; his aunt, Blanch Shutford, he leaves 
to the care of his sisters ; the witnesses are .Roger Robarts, 
Relvisa Maddern, Jane Tonkin. Blanch Shutford may 
have been Blanch Sampson of Penzance, who married 
Robert Shutford 1 May 1704, if Robert was brother of 
Philip Shutford, the father of Sara Shutford, who was 
mother of John Bowes. The Bosons were then the leading 
people in the place, and John Boson was probably the well- 
known Cornish scholar, the correspondent of William 
Gwavas and others {sec Bibliotheca Cornubiensis, under 
Boson and Gwavas). Juliana, who married John Bowes,* 
30 Ap. 1686, was probably the daughter of George Boson, 
Esq., and this alliance may be the reason of John Boson 
becoming trustee for one of the family [see Boson pedigree). 
Another Simon Bowes, probably connected with this one, m. 
*3 March 1767, Penelope Ladner of Paul ("with her 
father's consent," i.e. she was under age : witnesses, Thomas 
Hoskin, Stephen Barnes). 

John Bowes, of Tredavo in Paul, who died 1681. There 
was a family tradition that he came over from Holland and 
founded the family in Paul. This must be incorrect, but 
he may have been in Holland, and come back in later life to 
his native parish. Richard Daniell, one of the chief land- 
owners in the district, was Governor of Middleburg, under 
Sir Robert Sidney 1612-14 ; and, through bis connections (he 
married twice there), the Daniell family may have been 
able to forward the interests of a countryman. This con- 
jecture rests on the fact that in a rent roll (printed further 
on) of Richard Daniell, in 1657, John Boos appears as hold- 
ing Tredavo under him at a conventionary rent of £5 — the 
highest rent given. The administration of John Bowes' 
property was granted at Bodmin, 21 Nov. 1681, to his son 
Robert, Jane the widow having renounced. Robert 
probably moved to Penzance, having married Mary Rawliag 
of that place (see below under Boase of Madron and Pen- 
zance) . It is to be noted that there was probably another 
John Bowes living at this time in Paul, for an obscure entry 
in the register seems to read " (Cisley ?) wife of John Bowes, 
buried 11 April 1661." If so, some of the later children 
(after Robert and Arthur) here assigned to John Bowes, who 
died 1681, may be really children of this second John Bowes. 
At the death of the first John Bowes in 16S1, Robert seema 
to have been the eldest son living. William, perhaps son 
of this second John Bowes, was baptised * 23 July 1648, 
P buried * 28 July 16S9, having had a son, William, baptised 
* 2 April 1678. John, another son (? of the John who 
died 1681) died 1734, and administration was granted at 
Bodmin, 17 July 1734, to his son William, and daughter 
Jame, wife of Thomas John. 

Richard Boase of Newlyn, was witness to his brother 
Arthur's marriage in 1760, and Arthur's daughter, Anne's, 
marriage in 1783, and died in 1788. Administration was 
granted at Bodmin 23 September 1788, to his widow Sarah. 
The witnesses to their marriage in 1 754 (by licence) are John 
Tonkin and Arthur Boase. Both Richard and his widow 
Saiah Berryman, were buried in Paul Church, and a 
mortuary paid for them, of 10s. 6d. and a guinea 
respectively. The will of their son John is dated 13 
December 1794. He leaves to his daughter Phillis £500 
to be paid her at the age of 21, or on her marriage, if 
she marry before that age, four per cent, interest being 
allowed her meanwhile : the same to his daughter Elizabeth 
Harvey, both sums being charged on his real estates. His 
only son John is made executor and residuary legatee. The 
witnesses are Harry and Mary Tonkin and James Pascoe. 
On 2 February 1795 administration was granted at Bodmin 
to George Glasson, uncle-in-law and guardian of John 
Boase, the executor, power being reserved to grant the like 
administration to John Boase when of age. Stamp £11 10s. 
John Boase's seal is attached. 

It is possible that Richard Boase, who died 1788, had 
married a first time when very young, for this entry occurs 
at Paul, " William, son of Richard and Isabella BoaBe, 
baptised 6 September 1747, " and the following entry 
possibly refers to the children of this William. His wife 
Grace may be Grace, daughter of John and Elizabeth Boase, 
baptised * 6 December 1747 (same year as her husband). 

1789, October 18, baptised Charles and Mary, son and 
daughter of William and Grace Boase.

William married Joan, and Grace was the wife of the other

Henry Boase, who died 1827, left behind him an auto- 
biography, from which the following notices of his life have 
been mainly taken. 

Henry Boase, the fourth son of Arthur Boase of Madron, 
by Jane, daughter of Henry Lugg of S. Keverne, was born 
at Madron on the third of June 1763, and baptized at the 
parish church on Midsummer day. As to his family con- 
nections he says himself in his autobiography " My paternal 
grandfather farmed his own little property in the parish of 
Paul, my maternal grandfather was a Lugg of S. Keverne, 
where his ancestors were freeholders of old times, and where 
his family still remain. He purchased some lands both 
freehold and leasehold in Madron, where he came to reside, 
and married a Miss Paul, by whom we are related with 
Luke, Hosking, Wallis, Woodis, and other families. 
Miss Paul's sister mairied Hosking of Landithy, and her 
daughters were married, one to Wallis, another to Thomas 
Woodis of Alverton. These with the father of Mr. Edmund 
Paul, surgeon, were first cousins of my mother. Mr. Luke 
and Dr. Luke are my cousins in the second degree by their 
mother, aTrewavas; and Mr. Luke's children are doubly 
related to us, that is by their grandmother, a Trewavas, 
and by their mother, a Woodis, who was the elder sister of 
Mrs. John Jones Pearce." He was of weak health, and 
studious habits, and early gained some knowledge of the 
classical languages and of French, though the means of 
instruction within his reach were very small. His father 
Arthur had been fairly educated, and was a member of the 
Bowling green and Sporting clubs of the neighbourhood, 
and was constantly Churchwarden, an office of some note in 
those days, and which after the squire and the vicar dis- 
tinguished a chief man in the parish. He was a reader and 
a politician, and then, what was far from common, had a share 
of a weekly newspaper, (taken in by several in rotation), 
the Sherborne Mercury, the only paper published at that 
time in the Western counties. This newspaper was accom- 
panied by a little Weekly Miscellany, from which its readers 
gained small scraps of literary information, and to which 
Henry Boase afterwards contributed. The Cornish lan- 
guage had not yet wholly died out. ' In my father's early 
years net a few of the previous generation spoke Cornish, of 
which he retained many phrases. I remember he used to 
teach us the Lord's Prayer, sundry proverbs, the numerals 
Sec, in that language." 

In 1779 he became a clerk in Mr. Luke's office at Pen- 
zance, and gained better opportunities for self insti uction 
than were available at Gear in Gulval, to which his father 
had removed from Madron in 1774. " Soon after I came 
to reside at Penzance I had the good fortune to obtain 
some favour in the sight of a very eccentric man of 
the name of Hewett, who kept a small, and at that 
time, the only bookseller's shop in the town. Monthly 
Magazines were then getting into fashion, about half a dozen 
of which came to his shop every month, and it was to me a 

great treat to be permitted to peep between the un-cut 
leaves, before they were sent home to their owners. With 
intense anxiety I have often watched the arrival of the 
monthly wagon, and the removal of my friend's package to 
his shop, and then passed by the door or made some excuse 
to go in and see whether it was opened, an operation which 
the old gentleman, to my great mortification, would some- 
times postpone for several days. I reckon it one of the 
most fortunate circumstances of my life to have fallen into 
the good graces of the old bookseller, for at that time 
Penzance afforded very little help towards the acquisition 
of knowledge, — no book clubs, no public library, no reading 
rooms, no scientific institutions of any kind ; and except a 
little occasional stir by the novel introduction of Methodism 
there was nothing to disturb the long established smoking, 
drinking, and gaming-clubs, of which there were some for 
all ranks, and for almost all ages. These were distinguished 
by many ridiculous names, but all agreeing in drunkenness, 
profanity, and card playing ; hard drinking, gaming and 
swearing, were then considered gentlemanly accomplish- 
ments, and destroyed the health and fortune of very many. 
To the wonderful change which took place soon after the 
breaking out of the late war, I ascribe much of the increase 
of population which has since taken place. From the 
pernicious influence of such society, I was in a great measure 
preserved by a weak state of health, and a fortunate po- 
verty, which left me very little to spend, and much less than 
I was anxious to invest in books. This is a sad picture of 
Penzance, such as it was before I knew it and when I lived 
there from 1779 to 1784. When I visited it in 1792, I did 
not observe much difference ; but when I again saw it in 
1806, I was astonished at the change. Much of the moral 
change we have seen may be traced to the spread of 
Methodism, which, while it operated powerfully on the 
labouring classes, reflected a benign influence on the higher 
orders of society. Smuggling with its concomitant vices of 
drunkenness and swearing was virtually encouraged by the 
upper ranks, and was the bane of the miner and the fisher- 
man. Against these especially, Wesley and Whitfield 
levelled their powerful denunciations, and although their 
followers were for a long time few and obscure, the evils 
they condemned were too flagrant to admit of defence. So 
uncivilized were our miners down to a period so recent as to 
be within my memory, that one of the terrors of the nursery 
to quiet froward children was to tell them that the Tinners 
were rising. When these men felt or fancied some public 
grievance, they collected in great bodies, and laid the 
devoted towns and markets under such contributions or 
restraints as the barbarous multitude thought proper to 
impose. Among these men WeBley and Whitfield operated 
a change of incalculable importance not only to the miners 
but to the community at large." 

In 1781, being then clerk to Mr. Luke, he went on business 
to Falmouth, and as he was very fond of drawing, amused 
himself with taking sketches of the harbour, and at length 
wandered within the lines of Pendennis castle, not knowing 
that it was forbidden ground , it being a time of war, and of 
great terror about spies ; he was consequently arrested and 
dismissed with a reprimand for the trouble his ignorance 
had occasioned. 

In 1782 he went on horseback to Plymouth on business. 
Plymouth had hardly yet recovered from the panic occa- 
sioned by the combined fleets of France and Spain, which 
had menaced its destruction three years before, in the 
month of August 1779. " Of that alarm I have still a vivid 
recollection, caused probably by the violence of the original 
impression, when the enemy with apparently an overwhelm- 
ing force was in sight. Early one beautiful morning the 
alarm was given that the grand fleet of England, chased 
by the combined fleets of France and Spain was off the 
Western Coast. Everybody ran to the hills, from which 
could be seen at once the British fleet, under Sir Charles 

Hardy, 38 ships of the line and a very few frigates, crowd- 
ing sail to the eastward, and leisurely pursued by the com- 
bined fleet, under Count D'Orvilliors, composed of about 70 
ships of the line, with a cloud of frigates and smaller vessels. 
The day was nearly calm, with now and then a little breeze 
to the northward, so that for the long space of a summer's 
day the Mount'sBay exhibited the uncommon scene, first, of 
more than 100 ships of the line assembled, and secondly, of 
the British Channel fleet flying before the enemy. With 
the close of the day we lost sight of the fleet off the Lizard, 
and the second day after, the enemy paraded triumphantly 
before Plymouth, whence he drew off on the third night, 
alarmed by a threatening storm with heavy thunder from the 
south-east. I was told at Plymouth that a single ship 
might have silenced all the batteries, so wretchedly unpre- 
pared wore they to sustain any attack." 

On the restoration of peace it occurred to him that if he 
could learn to speak and write French with facility it would 
be a recommendation, as that was an attainment becoming 
more necessary in commercial affiairs, and far from common 
among clerks in those days, " So scanty however were my 
resources at this period, that the expense, though trivial, was 
a formidable obstacle ; but as I could pass over by one of our 
Mount's Bay boats for nothing, and contemplated only a 
short stay, it was at length determined that I should go." 
In the spring of 1785 therefore he landed at Roscoff in 
Brittany, with the express object of improving his knowledge 
of modern French, and resided for sometime with a French 
family at Morlaix, to which he had been introduced by Mr. 
M'Culloch (father of Dr. M'Culloch, the geologist), a mer- 
chant whose acquaintance he had made at Penzance during 
the war. " Here I was treated very kindly, and passed 
about nine of the pleasantest months of my whole life. 
Though Morlaix was a large town, living was then cheap 
there. My board and lodging were thought liberally paid 
at the rate of 400 livres, or about £16 a-year. Hairdresser, 
fencing master, dancing master, and washerwoman, all im- 
portant personages, and indispensable, were paid 3 livres, or 
half-a-crown a month each ; and an excellent ecclesiastic, 
L' Abbe Le Roux, gave me instructions in French, in 
return for my help to a young man, his nephew, whom he 
wished to learn English. Before the close of the year I 
found a passage free to Wales in a British vessel, to whose 
captain I had rendered service as an interpreter at Morlaix, 
and from Swansea I got a passage home with a captain I 
had formerly known, so that the whole of this expedition, 
which was eventually the source of all my success in life, 
cost less than twenty pounds." 

On his return from France, after a brief attempt at setting 
up in business at Newlyn, he in 1788 went to London, 
where his knowlege of French proved all-important to him. 
He became junior corresponding clerk in the bank of Messrs, 
Ransom. Morland, and Hammersley, in Pall Mall — one of 
the leading West end firms — and it fell to his lot to conduct 
much of the correspondence of the emigrants who fled to 
England during the revolution. To several of these he was 
able to do much friendly service, and on their return to 
France, after the peace of Amiens, the Bishop of Troyes and 
others wrote him very grateful letters. 

In 1792 he re- visited Cornwall to see his aged mother, to 
whom he had for some time sent liberal help. He met his 
elder brother Arthur (then in the bank at Tiverton, of which 
he was afterwards a partner), by appointment at Exeter ; 
and they rode on horseback to Penzahce, arriving on the 
evening of the fifth day from his leaving London. It was 
a tedious journey at that time, in a heavy stage coach, called 
" The Fly," above forty hours on the road to Exeter, while 
the only means of travelling further West was on horseback. 
Of his eighteen days holiday, ten were spent in toilsome 

In 1792 also he became chief clerk, his services having 
been highly appreciated ; and on the first of January 1799 


he was admitted as partner in the firm, the business of 
which had much increased owing to that of Lockhart and 
Co. being now transferred to it. On Sunday the 26th of 
October 1794 he had married, at S. Andrew's, Holborn, Anne, 
the only child of Matthew Craige, of Walsall, by Anne 
daughter of John Mason. He had known his future wife 
for several years. Her father died when she was very 
young, and she had lived first with her mother's father, and 
then with her mother who had married secondly Mr. Thing, 
one of the senior clerks in Ransom's bank. The young 
couple lived first in Air street, Piccadilly, then from 1795 to 
1807 at Kmghtsbridge, (where eight of their thirteen child- 
ren were born), and finally at No. 127, Sloane street, 
Chelsea, which had then an open prospect over what were 
called " the Chelsea Five Fields," (now Belg-rave Square, 
&c), and here they remained from 1807 to 1810. 

In the terrible winter of 1799-1800, the communication 
with Hamburgh was stopped for three months, and the 
wreck of the " Lutine " frigate on the coast of Holland, 
which was carrying over a great number of merchants and 
traders, and above half-a-million sterling, brought on a 
crisis in the business of Northern Germany. The firm of 
Carpzov of Bremen was one of those which failed, and 
Mr. Boase went over as soon as the ice broke up, and suc- 
ceed ed in saving part of the amount due to the bank : it was 
then a common practice on the continent to give up a bank- 
rupt' s effects to the home creditors and cheat the foreign 

In 1804 be went to Scotland to examine into the affairs 
of the Dundee New Bank, which was afterwards recon- 
structed under the proprietorship of Lord Kinnaird and 
Messrs. Morland, Boase, Baxter and B.oberts, and became the 
parent of the Glasgow Bank: this ultimately led to two of 
his sons becoming managers of the Dundee Bank ; and one of 
them, Mr. 0. W. Boase, has written a very instructive 
History of Scotch Banking. Mr. Boase had himself written 
a number of tracts on the famous ' Bullion Question,' which 
are enumerated in the Bibliotheca Cornttbiensis 

His health was now so seriously affected by the London 
winters, that at the close of 1809, he resolved to retire from 
the business and spend the rest of his life in his native air 
at Penzance. After a preliminary visit with his wife to 
make the necessary arrangements, he finally took up his 
residence there. He resided first in Chapel street, and then 
on the South Parade ; but having purchased about two acres 
and a half of ground on the west, or Alverton, side of the 
town for £1000, he built a house there which cost him 
£3,500 more. It is called Alvern hill, and has a pleasant 
garden in which the well-known spring, called Alverton 
well, takes its rise. Not wishing entirely to give up work, 
he became a partner in the Bank of Messrs. Batten, Oxnam, 
and Carne, at Michaelmas lS10,and remained so until Lady 
Day 1823 ; soon after which he took over the Penzance 
Union Bank from Mr. William Dennis, and with his two 
elder sons and Mr. Trevenen James started a new firm on 
May 1 1823, which was joined by Mr. George Grenfell in 
1824. During his residence in London he was well ac- 
quainted with Granville Sharp, Robert Owen, and other men, 
eminent for their philanthropic exertions ; was a leading 
member of the London Missionary Society ; and took a con- 
siderable part in the foundation of the Bible Society, in 
conjunction with the Rev. Thomas Charles of Bala, with 
whi >in he had become intimately acquainted whilst eng iged in 
distributing, as Mrs. Palmer's banker, her donation of £1000 
to the poor beneficed clergymen of Wales. He was also much 
interested in the formation of schools on the new system of 
Joseph Lancaster. His correspondence, part of which is 
preserved in the British Museum (Additional MSS. 29281) 
gives some interesting details on these matters. 

He had originally sympathised with the great French 
movement of 1789 ; but, like most Englishmen, recoiled 
from the atrocities committed by the revolutionists, and 

attached himself to the policy of Mr. Pitt. In the years 
1803-5 he was senior captain of the Volunteer Corps at 
Knightsbridge, and spent much time on his duties and on 
the management of the companies. In the 18 years during 
which his life was prolonged at Penzance, he returned with 
fresh zeal to his literary pursuits, corresponded much with 
Sir Humphrey Davy, and Dr. Edmund Davy, Davids Gil- 
bert, &c, and in 1814 helped Dr. Paris and Mr. Ashhurst 
Majendie to found the Royal Geological Society of Cornwall; 
his eldest son Henry afterwards became well known in con- 
nection with it by his " Treatise on Primary Geology," and 
the detailed geological description of every Cornish parish 
which he contributed to Davies Gilbert's " Parochial His- 
tory of Cornwall." In 1817-18 he furnished Sir Thomas 
Bernard with valuable evidence as to the pernicious effect 
of the Salt laws. He also took an active share in establish- 
ing the Public Library at Penzance in 1818, feeling deeply 
of what value 'such an institution would have been to him- 
self 40 years previously. He was elected a Fellow of the 
Royal Society of Literature in 1821. He was much esteemed 
by his fellow townsmen; was elected Alderman, and Mayor 
in 1816, and took a leading part in Penzance for some years, 
where he organised a savings' bank, over the interests of 
which he kept a careful watch. He died 8 April 1827, the 
long continued east wird of that inclement spring having 
fatally intensified a chronic disease of the organs of res- 
piration, and was buried in S. Mary's churchyard on the 
thirteenth of that month. His autobiography, of which 
much use has been made in this sketch, supplies an excellent 
instance of the pursuit of knowledge under great difficulties 
by a poor friendless boy, who won his way in life literally 
by self help. 

His brother Arthur, mentioned in the life, became partner 
in the Tiverton Bank, 19 April 1808 ; see also Harding's 
' Tiverton,' part i, p. 238. 

Notices of Henry Boase occur in Davies Gilbert's 
" Parochial History of Cornwall," C. S.Gilbert's "Historical 
Survey of Cornwall," aud Lake's " Parochial History." The 
arms of the family are given in C. S. Gilbert, plate 25. They 
are : Ar. on a chevron engrailed gules 5 bezants between an 
anchor in base, and 2 birds in chief with wings erect, Or : 
crest, a demi-lion charged with 3 bezants on the shoulder, 
and a star on the hip, holding in the fore-paws 5 arrows, 
4 in saltire, and 5 in fess on the top. The motto is " Per 
varios casus." 

Of his children, the elder ones born in London were bap- 
tised privately by his friend, the Rev. John Townshend, 
who founded the Deaf and Dumb Asylum in 1792, and 
died in 1826, and whose memoirs were published in 1828. 
George was baptised by Mr. Edgcumbe, curate of an Epis- 
copal Chapel in Knightsbridge. The three youngest were 
baptised at Penzance by the Rev. C. V. Le Grice. 

Henry S. Boase. 

Henry Samuel Boase, eldest son of Henry Boase, was b. 
at No. 6 Knightsbridge, London, 2 Sep. 1799, and privately 
bapt. by the Rev. John Townsend on the 7 Nov. After 
attending Messrs. Watson's School 32 Sloane street, Chelsea, 
he proceeded to the Tiverton Grammar School then 
under the mastership of William Richards LL.D., and 
in 1815 he was sent to Dublin to study under Edmund Davy, 
M.D., Professor of Chemistry etc. to the Royal Dublin 
Society. After some stay in Dublin he gave up his inten- 
tion of making chemistry his profession, and removing to 
Edinburgh took up the study of medicine, and going 
through the usual routine was admitted M.D. in 1S21, pub- 
lishing for his diploma thesis an essay entitled " Dissertatio 
Medica Inauguralis de Contagio." He now commenced 


practice as a physician at Penzance, but the profession was 
so very uncongenial to his taste that he gave it up after a 
very short trial. He next turned his attention to Geology, 
and in 1822 was appointed Secretary to the Royal Geologi- 
cal Society of Cornwall in succession to Mr. John Forbes, 
M.D. (afterwards Sir John Forbes) which place he held 
until 1829. His first paper in this science was "On 
the Tin Ore of Botallack and Levant," read at the annual 
meeting in Oct 1822. During 1829-31 he was employed in 
ascertaining the nature and boundaries of the Cornish rocks 
in order that their geographical relation might be accurately 
delineated in a map. On this work he employed two years 
and walked 1200 miles, visiting every part of Cornwall and 
collecting specimens of the rocks, which were deposited in 
the Geological Museum at Penzance, and form a very 
valuable series. An account of the journey (with a coloured 
geological map of Cornwall on the scale of 5 miles to an 
inch) was published in the Geological Transactions, iv. 
166-474. The Geological notices of the Cornish parishes 
in Davies Gilbert's History of Cornwall as well as in many 
of the more modern histories are taken from this account. 
In 1834 he published "A treatise on Primary Geology" 
a book which still holds its place as a standard work. 
During some years of the period already spoken of he 
had been a partner in the Penzance Union Bank, with 
which establishment he remained connected until its dissol- 
ution in Apl 1838. In 1837 he removed to London and 
took up his residence in Burton Crescent, and on the 4 May 
of the same year was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society. 
In 1S38 he left London and went to Dundee when he 
became managing partner in the firm of Turnbull Brothers, 
of the Claverhouse Bleachfield; in connection with these 
works in 1855 he took out a patent for " Improvements in 
the process of drying organic substances." More recently 
the Messrs. Turnbull having died and Dr. Boase and his 
second son having the larger share in the business, the firm 
has become Messrs. Boase & Co. InApl. 1870 Dr. Boase came 
into Dundee to reside, and in 1871 retired from taking any 
active share in the business. He has published " The 
Philosophy of Nature 1860 " and "An Essay on Human 
Nature 1865." For an account of his other writings see 
Bibl. Cornub. i, 29-30. He m. at Madron 11 Deer. 1824 
Elizabeth Valentina, eld. dau. of Will, and Mary Stoddard ; 
of his issue of ten children we shall now speak of, (a) 
Henry, (A) Alfred, (e) Arthur, (d) John, (c) Samuel. 

(a) Henry Boase, eld. child of H. S. Boase of Claver- 
house, was b. Chapel St. Penzance, 5 Oct 1825, and privately 
bapt, by the Rev. C. V. Le Grice. At an early age he was 
adopted by his great uncle Mr. Robert Richards of The 
Thorns, Alverton, Penzance, with whom he resided many 
years. He was first educated at the Grammar School, Pen- 
zance, under the Rev. George Morris, and afterwards at 
The High School, Dundee, and then took a situation under 
Messrs. Turnbull Brothers, at the Claverhouse Bleach 
Field. There he remained until 1 Jan 1865, when in conjunc- 
tion with Mr. George Ireland he became the purchaser of the 
Wellfield Works, Lillybank, where under the firm of Ireland 
and Boase they became Flax and Jute spinners and manu- 
facturers of hessians, tarpaulings, sacking, etc. On the death 
of Mr. Ireland on the 4 Dec 1871 H. Boase purchased from 
his Trustees the other moiety of the business, becoming by 
this transaction sole proprietor of the works. Mr. Robert 
Richards dying 11 Nov. 1844, H. Boase became owner of 
The Thorns, fenzance, subject to the life interest of 
Miss Richards, and on the decease of that lady, 20 Feb. 1862, 
he sold that property by auction. He m. 15 Sep. 1853 at 
Clepington near Dundee, Mary, third dau. of James Thorns 
by his wife Margaret Jobson, and has issue. 

(b) Alfred Boase, second son of H. S. Boase, was born at 
Penzance 20 July 1829, and privately bapt. by the Rev. W. 
W. Harvey. After being educated at Penzance and at the 
High School, Dundee, he in the year 1845 entered the ser- 

vice of the Messrs. Richard and Henry Green, shipowners of 
Blackwall, as a midshipman, and in that capacity made 
several voyages to the East Indies, Australia and other 
places. In 1852 the state of his health obliged him to leave 
the sea, and he entered the Claverhouse Bleach fields 
(Messrs. Turnbull Brothers) then under his father, as 
managing Partner, to learn the bleaching business ; in course 
of time he rose to be acting manager, and when in the year 
1870 Dr. Boase retired from the direction of the works, 
Alfred became sole manager with a share in the business, 
the firm consisting of H. S. Boase and Alfred Boase under 
the name of " Boase & Co., Yarn millers and calenderers, 
Claverhouse Bleach field, Trottick mills and St. Andrew's 
street Dundee." He m. 7 May 1853, at Falmouth, his first 
cousin, Ellen Bradley, eldest dau. of William Millett Boase, 
M.D. and has issue. 

(r) Arthur Boase, third son of H. S. Boase, was b. Pen- 
zance 2 1 June 1833, and privately bapt. by the Rev. Thos. 
Vyvyan. He was educated at Glenalmond College, Perth- 
shire, but his health soon commenced failing and he died of 
consumption at Claverhouse, Dundee, 8 July 1852, and was 
buried in the church yard at Mains. 

(&) John Boase, fourth son of H. S. Boase, was b. Burton 
Crescent, London, 4 Nov 1 837, and bap. St. Paul's Dundee 
1838. After being educated at Glenalmond College he 
entered the establishment of the Messrs. Veitch, Horticul- 
turists, Exeter, to learn ornamental and scientific garden- 
ing, but after studying for some years and finding no open- 
ing for his labour in England, he sailed for New Zealand 
where he died of fever at Christ Church 6 Feb. 1865. He 
m. June 1863 Sarah Jane Knowles and had issue. 

fej Samuel Steddard Boase, fifth son of H. S. Boase, was 
b. Claverhouse 19 May 1847. After being educated at 
Glenalmond College he entered the Lillybank Foundry 
under his cousins, Pearce Brothers, to learn machine 
making and mechanical drawing. However in 1870 seeing 
an opportunity of entering into business he in Dec, in 
conjunction with Patrick Spence Mudie, son of R. A. Mudie, 
shipowner, Dundee, took the Hank Mill works, where he 
now carries on jute spinning, &c, under the firm of Boase 
and Mudie. He m. at Newcastle-on-Tyne 6 June 1872 
Elizabeth, second dau. of James Spence, ship-agent. 

John J. A. Boase. 

John Josias Arthur Boase, second son of Henry Boase, 
was b. 23 June 1801 at No. 6 Knightsbridge, London, and 
privately bapt. by the Rev. John Townshend on 30 July. 
He was first educated at Messrs. Watsons' School at 32 
Sloane street, and afterwards at the Tiverton Grammar 
School (then under the Mastership of Dr. Richards) from 
Aug. 1809 to Christmas 1814. He then, after accompanying 
his younger brother Charles William for a short time to the 
Grammar School, Helston, was placed in the Bank of 
Messrs. Batten, Carne and Came at Penzance where he 
remained until Midsummer 1817. His father now sent him 
to France, and during a residence of fifteen months at St. 
Pol de Leon in Brittany he obtained a good knowledge of 
the French language. On returning to England in Sep. 
1818, he the following Christmas entered the banking-house 
of Messrs. Ransom and Co London where he staid until 
May 1824. He then after spending six months on the 
continent went down to Penzance and took an active part 
in the recently established Bank of Messrs. Henry Boase, 
Sons & Co., which consisted of his father Mr. Henry Boase, 
his brother Mr. H. S. Boase, Mr Trevenen James and 
himself, and was called The Penzance Union Bank. 
However on 30 Dec. 1831 Mr. Trevenen James retired 
and soon after Mr George Grenfell and his son Mr Pascoe 
Grenfell joined the firm, which then took the name of 



Messrs. Boase, Grenfell, Boase & Co., and J. J. A.'Boase 
and his elder brother became at the same time partners 
in the Tin smelting firm of Mr. George Grenfell, which then 
becamo known as Grenfell and Boase. These two firms 
were dissolved by mutual consent 21 Apl. 1838, the business 
of the Penzance Union Bank being sold to the Western 
District Banking Co., Mr. Boase remaining Manager of the 
new Company. This arrangement however did not continue 
rnanj 7 years as in 1844 the business was transferred to 
Messrs. Ricketts, Bnthoven, Turner, Mason, and James, and 
the old name of the Penzance Union Bank was restored ; 
another rapid change followed, on the 25 Apl. 1846 the 
firm became Messrs. Ricketts, Enthoven, and James, and in 
Nov. 1846 the business was dissolved and wound up, and 
Mr. Boase who had remained Manager throughout the 
various changes finally retired from business. 

Mr. Boase was an Assistant of the Old Corporation of 
Penzance, which consisted of Aldermen and Assistants, and 
when the Municipal Act came into operation in 1835 was 
elected a member of the New Town Council for the West 
Ward. At the first meeting of the Council he was chosen 
one of the Aldermen for the same ward. He has been a 
J. P. of the borough for a very long period, having been 
appointed in 1836 jointly with Mr. Joseph Carne the first 
borough magistrates. He was also in 1838 elected a 
Guardian of the Poor for Penzance. 

He succeeded the Rev. C. V. Le Grice as President of the 
Gentlemen's News Room in January 1859, and held that 
position until 1864, when it was converted into the Public 
News Room of which Institution he was then elected 
President. He was also connected with the Penzance 
Public Library for many years and was elected President 
in 1858 in the place of Joseph Carne, Esq. On his resig- 
nation of the Presidency in 1874 he was unanimously 
chosen an Honorary Life Member. Besides the foreign 
residence before alluded to, Mr. Boase has travelled a great 
deal, and a portion of his leisure time has been devoted to 
writing an account of his journies. This work in MS. 
occupies twelve volumes folio bound in Russia, and is illus- 
trated by several thousand engravings. For an account of 
bis contributions to various Literary Journals, see Bibl. 
Cornub. i, 30. 

For many years he was employed in numismatic researches, 
and at one time was the owner of a cabinet consisting of 
several thousand coins and medals both ancient and modern, 
but in 1860 he parted with the greater portion of his collec- 
tion which was sold by Messrs. Sotheby and Wilkinson in 
London, on the fourth of April and the following days. 
After the death of Mr. Joseph Carne 12 Oct. 1858, he at the 
request of Miss Elizabeth Carne, consented to unite with 
her in carrying on the Penzance Bank jointly with Mr. 
Philip Marrack and Mr. Thomas Hacker Bodilly, and 
having an equal share therein ; but the partnership was 
dissolved on the part of Mr. Boase the 30 June 1859. 

He m. 4 July 1827 at St. Clement's near Truro, Charlotte 
second dau. of Robert Sholl by Mary Beard Milford. She 
was b. Rosewin row, Truro, 30 Oct. 1802, and d. Alverton 
Vean, Penzance, Wednesday 10 Sep. 1873, bur. the Cemetery 
15 Sep. Of his issue we shall now speak of: fa) Charles 
William, (i) George Clement, (c) Edward Ley, (rf) Frederic. 

fa) Charles William Boase, eldest child of J. J. A. Boase, 
was b. Chapel street, Penzance, 6 July 1828 and bapt. by 
the Rev. W. W. Harvey at St Mary's 19 Sep. He was 
educated at the Grammar School, Penzance, under the Rev. 
Geo. Morris, and at the Grammar School, Truro, under the 
Rev. Dr. Tancock 1841-46. Here he gained Lord Fal- 
mouth's medals 1841 and 1842, Dr. Cardew's Exhibition 
prize 1843, and Lord Falmouth's prize of books in the 
same year. He next obtained the Elliot Scholarship of the 
value of £30 per annum, which he held at Exeter College 
for four years 1846-49. He matriculated at Oxford 4 
June 1846, and in the following year gained an open 

Scholarship at his College tenable for three years 1847-50. 
He obtained a second class in the final classical school Trinity 
term 1850, took his B.A. degree 18 May 1850, and his M.A. 
27 Jan. 1853, was elected Cornish Fellow of his College 30 
June 1850, Assistant Tutor 1853, Tutor 1855, Lecturer in 
Hebrew 1859-69, and has been Librarian since 1868. He 
was ordained 4 Mch. 1855, at Cuddesdon by Bishop S. Wil- 
berforce, but has not proceeded to priest's orders. In 
1851 he was proxime accessit for the Arnold Historical Essay 
on " Carthage," and received a prize of books. He was Master 
of the Schools 1856, Examiner in Modern History and Law 
1857, 1858, 1865, 1866, 1867, 1869, 1870, in Final Classical

1872 and 1873, for the Pusey and Ellerton Hebrew Scholar- 
ship 1861, in the new Combined Examinations for the Pass 
Schools 1874, 1875. He is known as being one of the joint 
translators and editors of Ranke's History of England for 
the Clarendon Press in 1875, and he has contributed 
numerous articles to The Act/demy and other literary journals. 
The account of the Deeds and Writs 1300-1836 in the 
Dawson Collection in the Penzance Public Library was 
compiled by C. W. Boase, and is reprinted from The 
Cornish Telegraph in the Catalogue of the Books of the 
Penzance Public Library (1874) pp. 336-43. 

(bj George Clement Boase, second son of J. J. A. Boase 
was b. Chapel street, Penzance. 20 Oct 1829, and privately 
bapt. by the Rev. W. W. Harvey 18 Nov. He was educa- 
ted at Regent's House Academy and the Grammar School 
Penzance, and for a short time in 1844 at Bellevue House 
Academy, Penryn. At the age of 15 in 1844 he entered as 
a clerk in the Western District Banking Co. Penzance, and 
continued there when that company was transferred to 
Messrs. Ricketts, Enthoven, & Co. In 1847 he went to 
London and engaged himself to Mr. Nehemiah Griffiths, 
Ship and Insurance Broker, 2 White Hart Court, Lombard 
street ; here he remained for more than three years, and at 
the end of that period entered the employment of Messrs. 
Ransom & Co. Bankers, 1 Pall Mall East. On the 29 Apl. 
1854 he sailed from Liverpool in the " Great Britain " and 
landed at Melbourne, Australia, where his first employment 
was acting as a corrector of the press on " The Age " news- 
paper ; after this he proceeded to the Gold Diggings at 
Simpson's Ranges, but not meeting with much success and 
the season proving too dry to admit of gold washing, he was 
for some time engaged in a general store. On returning to 
Melbourne he agreed with Thomas Darchy Esq. of Gelam 
Station, Murrumbidgee River, New South Wales, to become 
tutor to his family. Accordingly in August 1855 he took up 
his residence on the Murrumbidgee, and here and on the 
Lachlan river where Mr. Darchy also owned stations he con- 
tinued to reside until 1864. During the long period of his 
residence here his occupation was varied by his acting as 
paid correspondent of the "Sydney Morning Herald" in 
the Lower Murrumbidgee and Lower Lachlan districts. 

In 1864 he sailed from Melbourne in the " Yorkshire " 
Capt. Reynell, and landed at Falmouth in a pilot boat on 
Midsummer eve in the same year. In 1865 he became 
manager for Messrs. 11. M. Whitehead & Co. Australian 
Provision Merchants, Loudon, with whom he remained until 
Midsummer 1874, when he retired from business and has 
since devoted his time to the collection of materials for the 
second volume of the " Bibliotheca Cornubiensis, " the first 
volume of which in connection with Mr. William Prideaux 
Courtney he had brought out in Deo. 1873. 

(c) Edward Ley Boase third son of J. J. A. Boase was 
b. Chapel street, Penzance, 26 May 1836, bapt S. Mary's 
by the Rev. Thomas Vyvyan 22 July, and was educated 
at Bath under Mr. Shaw, and at Caen in Normandy in 1853. 
He went to Australia with his brother G. C. Boase in 1854 
and was first employed in an office in Hobart Town, Tas- 
mania. After holding various situations for some years 
both in Victoria and New South Wales, including taking 



part in the collection of the census of the former colony in 
1857, he ahout 1866 opened a store of his own in Pall 
Mall, Sandhurst, where he still continues, and has built him- 
self a residence in the vicinity of the town. He m. 1867 
Jane Millar and has issue. 

(d) Frederic Boase fourth son of J. J. A. Boase was b. 
at Lariggan, near Penzance, 7 Oct. 1843, and bapt. at S. 
Mary's 1? Nov. by the Rev. E. Shuttleworth. He was

Messrs. Rodd and Cornish, Solicitors, Penzance, 24 Dec. 
1861, he passed his intermediate examination in London 
Nov. 1864, and his final examination Jan. 1867, and was 
admitted an attorney and solicitor 30 Jan. 1867. Since that 
time he has followed his profession in Exmouth and in 

Charles W. Boase. 

Charles William Boase, third son of Henry Boase, 
was b. No. 6 Knightsbridge, London, 8 June 1804, and pri- 
vately baptised by the rev. John Townshend, 26 July, 
removed to Penzance with his father in 1810, aDd was edu- 
cated at the Helston Grammar School under Rev. William 
Stabback. After this he went to France and resided for some 
time at St. Pol de Leon and obtained a fair knowledge of tho 
French language. On his return he proceeded to Portsmouth 
where he studied in order to qualify himself for becoming an 
engineer, but after a time abandoning this intention he 
with the view of learning Scotch banking entered the 
Dundee New Bank, in 1821 and after passing through 
various grades of service, on the retirement of Mr. William 
Roberts, who went to Glasgow, became manager of the 
Union Bank, and died 14 Apl. 1832, was appointed manager 
of the bank. In 1837 he was invited to take the manage- 
ment of the Dundee Bank, and this proposal led to the 
amalgamation on the 31 Jan. 1838 of the Dundee New Bank 
with the Dundee Banking Co., established in 1763, Mr. 
C. W. Boase assuming the management on the 13 March 
under the title of Cashier. In 1840 the Directors to relieve 
themselves of some of their duties appointed Mr. C. W. 
Boase manager ; and his brother, Mr. G. C. Boase, became 
cashier. This position he held till Feb. 1864, when the 
Dundee Bank was merged in the Royal Bank of Scotland, 
but he still continued to manage the business till 21 Dec. 
1867, when he retired on a pension. On the 10 Jan. 1851 
he was presented by the Directors with the sum of two 
hundred guineas '• in consideration of his valuable and 
efficient services for the past thirteen years." And on the 
9 Mch. 1857 he was presented with £300 "in token of 
their satisfaction at the result of the past year's business." 
Shortly after he came to Dundee he took a deep interest 
in promoting the establishment of the Watt Destitution, and 
in 1 824 the year when it was called into existence he was 
elected Secretary and Treasurer which appointments he held 
until 1828. He arranged the museum of the Institution, 
occasionally delivered lectures to its members and until its 
dissolution was one of its warmest supporters. 

In 1842 when the town of Dundee became bankrupt, C. 
W. Boase was one of the trustees elected by the creditors. 
At one period he was a director of the Public Seminaries, and 
he also took part in the discussion relative to the improve- 
ments of the harbour, his financial knowledge of the business 
of the town rendering his opinion of considerable value. 

In 1836 Mr. Boase became " a believer in the restoration 
of Apostles to the Church," and one of a small company of 
like faith worshipping in a room in Whitehall Close under 
the care of the Rev. G. Crosbie. Soon after he at his own 

cost erected an elegant little chapel in Bell street to which, 
the congregation removed, and continued there until 30 
Nov. 1867 when the present church in Constitution road 
was opened for service. " Mr. Boase was ordained to the 
Priesthood in Oct. 1836 and to the Episcopate in Aug. 1851, 
and after his retirement from business in 1867 had charge of 
the Evangelistic work throughout Scotland, in consequence 
of which he removed in Nov. 1870 to Drummond-place, 
Edinburgh." As a preacher he had a popular style and a 
happy knack of making himself perfectly understood, so that 
on occasions when it was announced that he was going to 
preach many of the outside public attended the church. He 
originally resided in Meadow Place, Dundee, having a 
country house at Newport in Fife, but about 1859 
went to reside at Balgay House, Dundee. With the 
intention of providing illustrations of the Scriptures for the 
members of his own congregation and others, he employed 
Mr. John Alexander and other artists to make for him 
copies of many of the most celebrated paintings of the old 
masters existing in foreign collections ; for the proper exhi- 
bition of these paintings he built a special gallery at the 
rear of his house in Meadow Place, and with the hope of 
encouraging a taste for art in Dundee, these paintings were 
on more than one occasion lent for public exhibition. One 
of these pictures, a copy of Leonardo da Vinci's great paint- 
ing of the Last Supper he presented in 1870 to the Albert 
Institute, Dundee, the others were removed to Edinburgh, 
and the collection has now been dispersed. 

As an author he has published several works on con- 
troversial theology, for which see Bibl. Cornub. i. 28, 
but the publication by which he will be chiefly 
remembered is entitled " A Century of Banking in Dun- 
dee," a mass of facts and figures extending over nearly four 
hundred pages, and affording most useful information to 
all persons interested in banking statistics. C. W. Boase 
died rather suddenly on Friday the 7th June 1872, while 
staying at Albury, Surrey, " attending a Council of Minis- 
ters of the Catholic Apostolic Church :" his remains were 
interred in the burial ground of the parish church on the 12 
June. He m. 9 Dec. 1832 at Dundee Helen, fifth dau. 
of William and Alison Lindsay, and had issue seven child- 
ren ; of these we propose to speak of two (a) Edward (b) 

(a) Edward Boase, second son of C. W. Boase, was b. 
Dundee 16 Dec. 1841, educated at Gothic House, Rotting- 
dean (Mr. Arthur Orlebar's), and at Glcnalmond College, 
Perthshire He entered the 93rd Sutherland High- 
landers in 1860, purchasing his Ensignship 21 Dec. 
1860, and his Lieutenancy 10 July 1863. He served in 
India for some y ears, and after his return, namely in the 
commencement of 1868, sold out his commission. Soon 
after retiring from the army he entered into partnership 
with Messrs. Robert and Henry Small and his cousin W. L. 
Boase, under the names of Messrs. Small and Boase, Hemp 
spinners, twine makers, and manufacturers, having pi aces of 
business at Rockwell Works. Dundee and Hawkslaw Works, 
Leven. On the death of Mr. Henry Small in 1869 Mr. 
Robert Small retired from the firm, and the business was 
continued by Edward Boase and W. L. Boase under the 
same title of Small and Boase, until 1 Dec. 1875. At that 
date they sold the Rockwell Factory and business to W. L 
Boase. Shortly after, they took a partner, Mr. George 
Shann ; and Edward Boase, W. L. Boase, and George Shann 
carry on at Leven the business of Hemp Spinners under the 
name of Small and Boase. He m. 31 Oct. 1871 Emilia only 
dau. of the late John Bell, solicitor, Dundee. 

(b) Clement Boase, third son of C. W. Boase, was b. 
Dundee 13 May 1846, and educated at Glenalmond College, 
Perthshire. In May 1864 he entered the Dundee Bank and 
served as an apprentice until about the end of 1867, when 
he determined to devote himself to the ministry ; accord- 
ingly in 1870 he was admitted to the Deaconship in the 



C. A. Church, Dundee, but was removed in Jan. 1872 to 
the Church in Edinburgh, where he still remains. He 
m. 4 Apl. 1872 Charlotte Hannah, second dau. of Charles 

D. Young, engineer, Perth. 

George C. Boase. 

George Clement Boase, fourth son of Henry Boase, was 
b. at 127 Sloane street, Chelsea 25 Aug. 1810, and privately 
bapt. by the Rev. C . Edgecombe ; he was educated at the 
Exeter Grammar School then under the Mastership of Dr. 
Collins, from thence he proceeded to Queen's College, 
Cambridge, where he resided 1828-29 but not sufficiently 
long to take a degree. He then went down to Dundee to 
visit his elder brother Charles, cashier of the Dundee New 
Bank, the result of which was that in the summer of 1830 
he became a clerk in the Bank, and in August 1832 the 
directors deeming it desirable to have a confidential clerk to 
take the cashier's place in his absence, he was offered the 
appointment and became also a partner in the Bank. As 
before stated, under C. W. Boase, the Dundee New Bank 
was amalgamated with the Dundee Banking-Co. in January 
1838, and the Dundee Bank Directors wishing to relieve 
themselves of part of their duties, resolved in April 1840 to 
make C. W. Boase, manager, G. C. Boase succeeding him 
as cashier, a position which he held until the amalgamation 
in February 1864 of the Dundee Bank with the Royal Bank 
of Scotland, when he became sub-manager, (George Mac- 
kenzie, accountant, being made cashier), and so continued 
until 21 Dec. 1867, when he retired on a pension. Like C. 
W. Boase, he, in the commencement of 1836, joined the 
body now generally known as the Catholic Apostolic 
Church and was ordained to the Priesthood in October of 
that year. About twelve months after giving up business, 
that is in the autumn of 1 868, he removed to Brighton to 
take the charge of the Church there. G. C. Boase is the 
author of several theological tracts, etc., and has been the 
composer of many fugitive poems. An account of some of his 
writings will be found in the Bill. Cormib. i. 28. He m. 
22 Dec. 1835 at Carolina Port, Dundee, Jane Smyth, fourth 
dau. of William and Alison Lindsay. Of his issue we pro- 
pose to speak of (a) George William, (I) William Lindsay. 

( a J George William, eldest son of Geo. Clement Boase, 
was b. Dundee 6 Feb. 1837, and began his education under 
the Rev. Alexander Sterling, Tay square, Dundee, subse- 
quc ntly attending for a short time a private school kept by 
the Rev. T. G. Torry Anderson, in Hawkill place, and 
afterwards the Dundee Public Seminaries or High School 
from 1S47 to 1850. He went to Gothic House, Rottingdean, 
(Mr. Arthur Orlebar's) in September 1850, but from bad 
health had to leave at Midsummer 1851. He then attended 
the higher classical and mathematical classes at the High 
School, Dundee, during 1852 and 1853, and on the 12th 
September in the latter year entered the Dundee Bank as an 
apprentice, and after passing through the ordinary routine 
was appointed secretary 14 April 1862, and in February 
1864, on the occasion of the amalgamation of the 
Dundee Bank with the Royal Bank of Scotland became 
cashier, which position he still holds, (Mr. Mackenzie, 
cashier, having been promoted to be manager on the retire- 
ment of Messrs. C. W. and G. C. Boase in Dec. 1867.) He 
m. 2 Dee. 1874 at St. Mary Magdalen Church, St. Leonards, 
Sussex, Florence second dau. of the late Rev. Cuthbert 
Orlebar of Nottingham, sometime Vicar of Podington, 
Bedfordshire, by Eleanor, eldest dau. of John Kingston, 
of the Stamp Office. 

fl>) William Lindsay Boase, second son of Geo. Clement 
Boase, was b. Dundee 2 May 1841. He was educated at 
the High School, Dundee, until 1856, when he went for a 
year to Luxembourg, and in 1857 to Gothic Hall, Clapham. 

In 1858 he entered the office of the late James Bayford, 
Esq., Proctor, Doctors Commons, and in the same year 
obtained a clerkship in the Probate Office, where he re- 
mained until the spring of 1861. In May 1861 he pur- 
chased from Alexander Easson, Esq., a factory at Johns- 
haven, Kincardineshire, for the manufacture of hemp sacking 
by hand looms, and subsequently from the same gentleman, 
the Maxwelltown Factory, Dundee. In 1868 he joined the 
firm of Boswell and Co., hemp spinners, Leven, and in 1869, 
when Edward Boase was admitted a partner, the name of 
the firm was altered to Small and Boase. On 1 Dec. 1875 
he purchased from Small and Boase their factory and 
business at Rockwell Works, Dundee, and carries on these 
works, and also the factories at Johnshaven and Maxwell- 
town, in partnership with Mr. Thomas Murdoch who was 
admitted a partner in 1871, under the firm of W. L. Boase 
and Co. He m. at St. Andrew's 14 Mch. 1867, Eliza Russell, 
twin-daughter of Leslie Meldrum, Esq., of Devon Iron

wasb. Madron 24 Feb. 1771, and bapt. 2 Apl. He was educa- 
ted and brought up as an architect and a builder, and was 
the designer and builder of the residences known as 
Herbier House, Alverne Hill, and a considerable portion of 
Wellington Terrace, Penzance, etc. Mr. John Boase was 
a class leader and lay preacher amongst the Wesleyan 
Methodists until 1835, when he joined the C. A. Church 
and became the Minister of that denomination at Penzance. 
He d. Herbier House, Penzance, 23 Mch. 1850 and was bur. 
St. Mary's churchyard 27 Mch. He m. at Penzance 16

(a) William Millett Boase second son of John Boase 
was born at Penzance 30 Mch. 1802, and bapt. at St. 
Mary's chapel 28 July. After being educated at Tiverton 
Grammar School and at Queen's College, Cambridge, where 
he kept three terms, he proceeded to Edinburgh in 182 — 
where he studied medicine; on taking his M.D. degree in 
1823 he published as his diploma thesis Disputatio Medico, 
inauguralis quadam de Phrenetide complectens, Edinburgh, J. 
Moir, 1823, 8vo. In 1827 Mch. 28, he m. at Madron his 
first cousin Jane Lydia, 4th dau. of Hen. Boase, and shortly 
afterwards took up his residence at Falmouth where there 
was an opening for a physician, owing to the recent death 
of Richard Edwards, M.D. During 1828-29 he assisted in 
editing the third and fourth volumes of The Selector, or 
Cornish Magazine, a periodical to which he contributed 
various articles. During 1835 he published a pamphlet 
entitled HniU on the exercise of the elective franchise. This 
work was in reference to the contested election for Penryn 
and Falmouth in January 1835, when Jas. AVill. Freshfield, 
(of the firm of Messrs. Freshfields'. solicitors to the Bank of 
England) Robt. Monsey Rolfe, (Solicitor-General, after- 
wards Lord Chancellor Cran worth), and Lord Tullamore, 
(afterwards the Earl Charleville), were the candidates, 
the two former being elected. In the same year he 
became a member of the C. A. Church, and soon after was 
appointed a minister of the chapel belonging to that 
denomination on the Moor Falmouth. In 1857 he left 
Falmouth and took up his residence at 52, Torrington place, 
Plymouth, where he still lives. He has for many years 
past relinquished his professional practice, and is now 
Minister of the C. A. Church, Plymouth. His only sur- 
viving son, 

(a) George Clement Boase, second son of Will. Millett 
Boase, was b. Falmouth 25 Aug. 1838 and bapt. at theC. A.

(2) John Jones Pearce was b. at Tredinney, Burvan, 15 
Apl. 1795, entered the Royal Navy in 1804, was 
gazetted Lieutenant 1814, and on the conclusion of 
peace was placed on half pay. Being desirous of em- 
ployment he took" the command of the " Tulloch Castle" 
and traded backwards and forwards to and from the 
West Indies and London. From over exertion in the 
discharge of his duty in 1823 at Kingston, Jamaica, he 
fell into a consumption, from the effects of which he 
never recovered. In 1831 he finally left the sea, and 
retiring to his native county took up his residence at 
Burlton Castle. Newlvn. It was here during the 
terrible outbreak of cholera which devastated Newlyn in 
1832 when so many persons ran away from the danger, 
that he and his wife remained at their post, aidingtheir 
neighbours by their precept and example, and adminis- 
tering to their wants with money, food and medicine 
to the utmost of their means. During the remaining 
months of his life he was quite an invalid, the con- 
sumptive symptoms returning with great violence. It 
was during one of his rides that in passing Hen Moor, 
Madron, he was particularly struck with a view of the 
mount from a plot of ground belonging to Mr. Ratten. 
It was not long before he made up his mind on the mat- 
ter. He purchased the ground, and commenced building 
himself a house, afterwards known asPolmenna ; he did 
not, however, live to inhabit it, for after much 
suffering, he died at Burlton Castle 10 July 1833, and 
was interred in the burial ground at the east end of 
Madron Church 13 July, where a tombstone has been 
erected to his memory. He married Anna Maria 
Henrietta eldest child of Henry Boase and Anne 
Craige, who was b. at No. 1, Knightsbridge, London, 
opposite the Chapel, on Monday morning 18 Jan. 1796, 
and was privately bapt. by the Rev. John Townshend on 
Thursday 4 Feb." She was educated at the Misses 
Babington's School, Sloane street, Chelsea, and joined 
her parents at Penzance in 1811. She took a con- 
siderable share in the education of her sisters, and was 
for some years a companion to her father. On the 20 


Nov. 1 S 2 1 , she was married at Madron by the Rev. 
George Treweeke to Lieut. John Jones Pearce, R.N. 
From 1825 to 1831, during her husband's voyages to 
the West Indies, she resided at Greenwich. A few 
months after his decease, she removed from Burlton 
Castle to Polmenna, a country house which her hus- 
band during his life had commenced building. Some 
time after, in 1835, she erected another house on an 
adjacent plot of ground. In 1S36 she and her family 
joined the. C. A. Church. She left Polmenna in 1845, 
and went to Dundee, first residing at No. 1, then at 
No. 2, Nelson street, afterwards at '67, Constitution 
road, and No. 2, King street. She now, 1876, lives at 
Eden grove, Arbroath road. In 186 — she sold both 
her houses at Polmenna for the sum of £1600, although 
the land and the buildings had cost upwards of £2,500. 
She enjoys a Lieutenant's widow's pension from the 
Admiralty. Her children were — 

i John Jones b. Hlackhoath, Kent, 12 Oct. 1822, bap. 
at Lea, d. Alverne Hill, Penzance 5 Mch 1823, bur. 
St. Mary's churchyard, 
ii Henry Jones Pearce b. Wellington place, Tenzance 
14 July fS2J, bap. by the Rev. M. N. Peters, at St. 
Mary's on the 6 Aug. He was placed under the Rev. 
George Morris, at the Penzance Grammar School, 
where he remained from 1835 to 1839. In 1S40 he 
took a situation in the Western District Bank at 
Penzance and remained with that firm ami with their 
successors Messrs. Ricketts, Enthoven, and Co. until 
April 1844. He then went to Dundee, where after 
sometime he joined Alexander Brown Glenday 
(previously a clerk in the Dundee Bank) in a 
shipping business, but this not proving profitable, he 
in Nov. 184S entered the banking house of Messrs. 
Ransom and Co., No. 1, Pall Mall East, London. Here 
he got on very well, and would, if he had remained, 
have been high in the office, as within a very few 
years the whole of the staff with the one exception 
of Mr. Cox the cashier died or left the establishment; 
but hearing of a vacancy in the Dundee Bank which 
he thought would suit him, and being desirous of 
being near his mother, he left London in Sep. 1S50 
and joined the Dundee Bank in the same month. 
There he continued until 3 1 March 1862, when he and 
his brother William Alfred Pearce under the name of 
Pearce Bros., took over the Lilly bank foundry, which 
W. A. Pearce had previously conducted with William 
Wylie Neish under a five years partnership which 
expired at this time. This establishment they still 
carry on. 
iii William Alfred Pearce was b. at Park Row, Green- 
wich, 13 May 1826, and bap. at St. Alphage, 
Greenwich, June 1826. He was educated from 
1840-41. at Penair House Academy, Penzance, 
then under the management of the late Mr. John 
Barwis. In 1841, he was sent to Tuckingmill and 
placed under the care of Mr. John Phillips to learn 
mechanical drawing, and at the 1842 Exhibition of 
the Royal Cornwall Polytechnic Society he obtained 
a prize for a drawing of a stationary steam engine. 
After this, in May 1843, he proceeded to Dundee, 
and there bound himself an apprentice for five 
years to Messrs. Kinmonds Hutton, and Steele, 
Wallace Fouudry, where he practically learnt the 
business of machine making in all its various details. 
On the expiration of his apprenticeship, he worked 
as a journeyman for some months, then entered the 
Drawing Office of Messrs. Fawcett, Preston and Co., 
engineers, Liverpool, from which he obtained the 
situation of chief draughtsman with Messrs. Martin 
Samuelson and Co., Hull, where he remained a year, 
and then seeing no prospect of advancement or im- 



provement lie left them and went across to Caen in 
Normandy (where his cousins G. C. and E. L. Boase 
were then residing) with the intention of studying 
the French language, but in about two months 
hearing of a situation in the Drawing Office at 
H.M. Dockyard, Portsmouth, he returned to England 
and obtained the place of draughtsman at the Steam 
factory there. In 1857 Lilly Bank Foundry, 
Dundee, being to let, he in conjunction with Wm. 
Wylie Neish took it and entered into partnership as 
machine makers under the title of Pearco and Neish 
for five years from 31st March, at the expiration of 
which time the partnership was allowed to run out. 
On 31 Mch. 1802, he joined his brother H. J. Pearee, 
and under the title of Pearee Brothers, steam engine 
and boiler makers, millwrights, etc., the firm still 
continues. W. A. Pearee m. firstly at St. Paul's

Col. 1. The following curious early notice of the name of 
Boase occurs in Hector Boethius' History of Scotland, lib. 
12, Fol. 266, line 65 (ed. Paris, 1527.) After speaking of 
the families which came over witli Queen Margaret 
from Hungary, he adds : — " Other families came over 
at different times from France, as Fraseir, Sinclair, 
Bosual, Montalth, Montgomerie, Cambell, Boas, Betuin, 
Taillefer, Bodenal." The author of The Norman People, 
1874, derives the name Bowes from Hugh de Boves 
(from Boves in Picardy), King John's Admiral, who 
perished in the great storm 26 Sep. 1215. (See 
Rymer's Fcedera, i, 134, Rot. Pat. i, 114, Wendover, 
iii, 287.) This is merely conjecture. John however 
did give lands near Penzance to another of his chiefs, 
HeDry 1c Tyes (Teutonicus), a military engineer from

May Andrew of Tregarden, widow of William Warne 
b. 26 May 1812. (See Sir J. Maclean, ii, 530.) It was 
this son who took out the patents. 

Col. 4. John Hewett published a new edition of Carew's 
Cornwall in 1769. In the Madron register we find : — 
' 1754 Nov. 20. John Hewett m. Jane Adams, both of 
Penzance.' H. Boase adds : — ' The monthly publica- 
tions did not reach us at soonest before the fifteenth 
of the month : there was no coach westward of Exeter, 
the mail which was forwarded thence to Penzance three 
times a week on horseback was in all five days coming 
from London. But even then the change which had 
taken place within the memory of aged people was 
thought wonderful. At the beginning of the last 
century only one newspaper, and that once a-week, 
reached as far as Godolphin, whither it was sent by the 
Lord Treasurer Godolphin, and laid on the table of the 
Great Hall for the accommodation of the gentlemen of 
the district, who rode over occasionally to learn the
