Sir Charles William Cayzer, 3rd baronet
Sir Charles, together with his butler, was found dead as a result of bullet wounds at his home
on 18 February 1940. It appears that Sir Charles killed the butler and then committed suicide.
The following report is taken from the 'Manchester Guardian' of 20 February 1940:-
'It is now known that Sir Charles Cayzer, Conservative M.P. for Chester, whose death was
reported in the "Manchester Guardian" yesterday, was found shot with his butler in the butler's
pantry at his home, Kinpurnie Castle, Angus. Both men had died from gunshot wounds in the
head.
'It is stated that members of the domestic staff heard two shots. On investigation they found
the butler, who was a London man named Benjamin Wexham, lying outstretched in one corner
of the pantry, while Sir Charles lay by the open door with a double-barrelled gun between his
knees. It was subsequently established that the gun had been taken from the gunroom, which
is opposite the pantry.
'Sir Charles and Lady Cayzer had been out walking on the estate before the tragedy. During
the walk they met Sir Charles' head gamekeeper, to whom Sir Charles gave instructions
concerning some work which he wished carried out on the estate.
'Some months ago Sir Charles suffered a nervous breakdown, but at the outbreak of war,
having formerly been a lieutenant in the 19th Hussars, he offered his services to the War Office
and was commissioned. Shortly afterwards he resigned on account of the state of his health.'
Sir Montagu Lowther Chapman, 3rd baronet
Sir Montagu was aboard a 96-ton schooner, the "Favorite," which sailed from Melbourne bound
for Sydney on 9 May 1852, but never arrived. No trace was ever found of the 21 people on
board, 13 passengers and a crew of eight. The schooner was last seen during bad weather
off Cape Howe, on the border between Victoria and New South Wales, and soon after this
final sighting, a heavy gale set in.
The following report appeared in 'The Standard' of 29 November 1852:-
'Accounts have reached London from Australia, which, it is to be feared, leave little doubt
that Sir Montagu Chapman, Bart, late member for Westmeath, has perished at sea off the
coast, not far distant from Sydney. Sir Montagu, who is, or was the owner of an extensive
and unencumbered estate in that county [Westmeath] had purchased a vast tract of land in
New South Wales, upon which he had located some portion of his Irish tenantry, under very
favourable circumstances. About three or four years since he proceeded to the colony for
the double purpose of recruiting his health by the voyage, and of inspecting the progress made
by his agents in the arrangement of the property. Early in May last he left Sydney on a
coasting voyage. The vessel in which he proceeded, in company with his relative, Mr.
Fetherstone, a young gentleman also from the county of Westmeath, with some military officers
and other passengers, was last seen on the 17th of May, but since that time there have been
no tidings whatever of the vessel, and it is supposed that she has foundered at sea. Sir
Montagu Chapman was unmarried.'
A year after Sir Montagu's disappearance, 'The Morning Chronicle' of 18 May 1853 reported:-
'A year having elapsed since the wreck of a vessel, in which Sir Montagu Chapman, Bart., had
been a passenger from Melbourne to Sydney, and all efforts to discover any traces of him
having failed, the members of his family have published an announcement of his death as having
occurred on the 17th of May, 1852. His brother, now Sir Benjamin Chapman, has assumed the
title, and will, of course, enter on possession of the extensive and valuable estates in this
country [Ireland] and also in Australia. The late Sir Montagu Chapman had been for a
considerable time one of the representatives for Westmeath; and when failing health had
induced him to retire, his place was worthily supplied by the present baronet. Although they
have ceased all connection with its representation, the Chapman family are still amongst the
most active leaders of the Liberal party in that county. The late baronet had purchased a very
large estate in Australia, which he had turned to the useful and benevolent purpose of settling,
in comfortable circumstances, such of his numerous Irish tenantry as were anxious to emigrate
to that fortunate region. A desire to look after their interests was one of the principal objects
which led him to proceed to Australia, where he met with so melancholy a fate.'
Sir John Corbin Chubb, 2nd baronet
The first baronet, Sir Cecil Herbert Edward Chubb, was the last private owner of Stonehenge.
He purchased it for 6,600 in 1915 from its previous owners, the Antrobus family, after the
last heir to the Antrobus estates had been killed in France during WW1. In October 1918, he
presented Stonehenge to the nation by a deed of gift. When he died in 1934, he was
succeeded in the baronetcy by his only son. The Wikipedia entry relating to the first baronet
states that, on his death in 1934, he left behind his wife and only daughter. This is somewhat
misleading, since it fails to mention his son, John Corbin Chubb.
Whereas the first baronet appears to have been a successful and public-spirited individual, the
same cannot, unfortunately, be said about his son. His first appearance in court occurred in
September 1937, when he was charged, together with a man named John Edward Howard,
with inciting a film director named Frederick Graves to steal 5,000 by means of a trick.
The following edited report of Sir John's subsequent trial appeared in "The Times" of 20
November 1937:-
'After a trial extending over two days Sir John Corbin Chubb, 33, of St. Mary Abbot's Court,
Kensington, and John Edward Howard, 56, secretary, of Brixton Road, S.W., were found Guilty
at the Central Criminal Court yesterday on an indictment charging them with unlawfully inciting
Frederick Beresford Johnstone Graves, a film director, living in Kensington, to conspire with
them and other persons to cheat and defraud such persons as might be induced to part with
money or valuable securities to them.
'It was alleged by the prosecution that Sir John Chubb asked Mr. Graves if he would be
interested in doing some business with him, remarking that he wanted to find someone to
discount a bill for 5,000. Mr. Graves said he had a friend who might do this. The following
week Howard called on Mr. Graves and said he was a friend of Sir John Chubb. They both went
to Sir John's flat and the bill was discussed. It was arranged that the three of them should pay
a social visit to Mr. Graves's friend near Oxford and that the discounting of a bill should be
mentioned casually.
'Mr. Graves's suspicions were aroused and he communicated with the police, and two detective
officers were concealed at his flat when a discussion took place between Mr. Graves and the
two defendants.
'[When] Sir John Chubb returned to the witness box [and was] questioned about the interview
when the police officers were concealed at the flat and it was alleged that proposals were
made to obtain money by confidence tricks from a friend of Mr. Graves, Sir John denied that
anything was discussed except the bill of exchange. Sir John said that Howard was explaining
to Mr. Graves what he had written about confidence tricks. The witness denied using any
language indicating that he would be a participator in fraud of any kind or that he ever
attempted to incite Mr. Graves to conspire with him to defraud anybody.'
Reading between the lines, it is more than likely that Sir John was heavily influenced by
Howard, who, according to evidence presented to the court, had nine previous convictions for
various offences including forgery, obtaining goods by false pretences, larceny, receiving,
conspiracy and house-breaking. The Recorder stated that he had no doubt at all that Howard
was the instigator, but at the same time Sir John could easily have refrained from participating
in Howard's scheme. His views were reflected in the sentences given - 6 months for Sir John
and 18 months for Howard.
Following a short-lived venture in promoting football pools, Sir John appeared in the Bankruptcy
Courts in August and November 1939. In February 1940, he attempted to obtain a discharge
from his bankruptcy, but his application was refused. At this hearing, the Assistant Official
Receiver commented that Sir John "exhibited a vacancy of mind and dullness of understanding
which might have been an assumed mask to conceal the reality of certain transactions. The
facts indicated that the debtor had been the tool of stronger willed and unscrupulous persons,
but they also showed that he had been a willing tool, ready to enter into any transactions
from which he could derive some pecuniary benefit without inquiring too closely into the nature
of the transactions or how the money obtained on the strength of his name was used."
When he refused the discharge, the Registrar of the Bankruptcy Court remarked that Sir John
"was either totally ignorant or that he had wilfully refused to be frank with the Court. He was
either a fool or a rogue."
Sir John was again before the Bankruptcy Courts in April 1943 and October 1949. When he died
in May 1957, the baronetcy became extinct.
Sir Claude Champion de Crespigny, 4th baronet
The following is extracted from "The Emperor of the United States of America and Other
Magnificent British Eccentrics" by Catherine Caufield (Routledge & Kegan Paul, London 1981)
The perfect 'Boy's Own Paper' hero, Sir Claude Champion de Crespigny believed that 'where
there is a daring deed to be done in any part of the world, an Englishman should leap to
the front to accomplish it.' Though Sir Claude had a long and adventurous career, many of
his attempts to leap to the front were thwarted by bureaucrats opposed to his breakneck
schemes. In 1886 Stanley turned down his request to accompany his expedition on the
grounds that Sir Claude did not have enough experience of central Africa. This was
disappointing, but, in his own words, 'even more keenly have I had cause to regret my lot
in not being able to take part as a volunteer in several of our little African wars.'
Three years later, at age 42, Sir Claude went on his own to Egypt where there was a Dervish
uprising, but, in spite of his claim to be the war correspondent for the Sporting Times, he was
refused permission to go to the front. He tried to get over this disappointment by volunteering
for the Boer War. Earlier, he had failed to persuade Blondin, the man crossed Niagara Falls on
a tightrope, to let him take a turn on the high wire. On a trip to Havana, Sir Claude had to be
hauled out of a bullring before he could sustain serious injuries - not from a bull, but from the
spectators. Aficionados of the corrida had become impatient with Sir Claude's failure to grasp
its rules. Having confused the present spectacle with Wild West rodeos, Sir Claude had tied a
rope around the bull's testicles and rode it around the ring while he tugged on the rope.
Following family tradition, Sir Claude pursued a military career. He joined the navy at thirteen
and five years later transferred to the King's Royal Rifle Corps. He was stationed in Ireland,
took up steeplechasing and earned the nickname 'The Mad Rider'. Later he was sent to India
where he was introduced to the joys of big-game hunting. He was also an excellent swimmer
and sailed competitively. In 1883, Sir Claude and a partner became the first people to cross
the North Sea in a balloon.
Although he had broken fourteen bones before middle age, Sir Claude did not slow down much
as the years passed. At 42 he became the first European to swim the Nile rapids. When he was
61 he walked the 45 miles from Champion Lodge in Essex to London on a wager of 2s 6d. He
steeplechased until he was 67. In 1920, at the age of 73 he challenged his cousin to a duel
and was sorely grieved that his challenge was rejected.
Sir Claude believed that fighting was a manly occupation and an indication of character. His
obituary in The Times notes that 'as a man of honour, he regretted the passing of the duel as
the proper means of obtaining satisfaction.' Men who applied to work at Champion Lodge had
first to box with their putative employer. Only those who showed spirit were considered. If he
came across a tramp, who looked reasonably fit, Sir Claude would invite to box for a meal. His
friends once dressed a professional boxer in rags and stationed him in Sir Claude's path. The
inevitable challenge was given and accepted, and Sir Claude was duly severely beaten. He
enjoyed the joke and continued to issue his challenges.
****************
For many years, Sir Claude was known as 'The Hangman Baronet', due to the fact that when
he was Sheriff of Essex, he had taken his duties so seriously as to consider himself personally
responsible for the proper and satisfactory hanging of a convicted murderer. As Sheriff, he
was nominally entrusted in having the convicted man hanged, but although the actual
execution of the sentence was carried into effect by the official executioner, Sir Claude
mounted the scaffold with the executioner and the condemned man and supervised every
detail until the condemned man was launched into eternity.
Sir Simon Peter Clarke, 5th baronet [creation of 1617]
Sir Simon Clarke and Lieutenant Robert Arnott were tried and convicted of highway robbery
at the Winchester Assizes held in 1730. Both defendants were officers of the Royal Navy
at the time of the offence.
The Newgate Calendar states 'came on at Winchester, the trials of Sir Simon Clarke, Bart.,
and Lieutenant Robert Arnott, who were convicted of a robbery on the highway. A numerous
concourse of gentry were present. Sir Simon made a most pathetic and moving speech, which
had such an effect, that there was scarce a dry eye in the court. The High Sheriff and Grand
Jury, considering the antiquity, worth and dignity of Sir Simon's ancestors, the services they
had done their king and country, together with the youth and melancholy circumstances of
that unhappy gentleman, agreed to address his Majesty in their behalf, upon which a reprieve
sine die, which implies for ever, was granted them.'
It seems that the petition to the King on their behalf was successful in saving them from the
death penalty, since, according to Cokayne's Complete Baronetage Sir Simon was punished
by being transported to Jamaica, where he died in 1736.
Sir Henry Augustus Clavering, 10th and last baronet
Sir Henry does not appear to have allowed perceived ill manners to go unpunished, as is
illustrated in the following report from 'The York Herald' of 23 August 1884:-
'At Newcastle County Court on Monday [18 August 1884], an action was brought by Matthew
Houston, sculptor, Newcastle, against Sir Henry Clavering, Bart., Axwell Park, for damages for
an assault. The plaintiff stated that early on the morning of the 24th May he arrived by train
in the Central Station, Newcastle, and went to the first-class refreshment room for a cup of
coffee. Sir Henry Clavering was standing at the bar. Plaintiff twice complained to the barmaid of
the quality and price of the coffee. On the second occasion the barmaid was talking to Sir
Henry when he called her away. The defendant then came up and said "How dare you insult the
lady? I will put you out." Plaintiff replied, "I don't know so much about that." Before anything
further transpired Sir Henry seized him by the throat and forced him backwards on to the table.
He nipped plaintiff's throat so hard that it became painful, and Sir Henry showed no signs of
loosing his grip, two gentlemen came forward and took him away. Sir Henry said to him, "I am
the master of Axwell Park. I am 60 years of age, but I can teach you manners yet." After that
the defendant wanted to stand drinks, and make matters all right. Sir Henry Clavering said he
was not the first to interfere with the plaintiff, who was drunk and behaving like a maniac.
He came round to him (Sir Henry). Defendant remonstrated with him. The plaintiff raised his
hand as if he would strike, and it was then that he (defendant) seized him by the throat and
forced him back as described. His Honour said that technically Sir Henry had committed an
assault. He would have to pay 2 10s 6d., including costs.'
