NAME ALTERED TO "FOLKESTONE 
& HYTHE" 1950
Henry Charles Stephens, MP for Hornsey 1887-1900
Stephens was a central figure in a child custody case in 1898 when, together with his 
daughter, he was involved in the forced removal of his two grandsons from the custody of the
governess who had been employed by his daughter's estranged husband.
The following report is taken from 'The Times' of 29 July 1898:-
 
'The Press Association has received from Mr. H.C. Stephens, M.P., the following account of
what has been described as the Hythe kidnapping case:-
"The two boys, aged respectively five and seven, of Mr. and Mrs. Lewis Edmunds, having been
removed unknown to their mother from their school at Folkestone, were traced to a house at
Hythe, where they were found in the custody of Miss Ford, a former nursery governess. Mrs.
Edmunds discovered that it was intended to remove the children to the Continent in order that
they should be beyond the jurisdiction of the Court to which she intended to apply for their
custody. A watch was kept by a detective, who had instructions to follow to any place to
which the children might be taken. On Tuesday, having heard that the projected removal of 
the children to the Continent might take place at any time, Mrs. Edmunds, accompanied by
her father, Mr. H.C. Stephens, M.P., went to the house at Hythe to fetch the children. Having
discovered that the children were in the yard or garden by the house, they walked into it,
Mrs. Edmunds taking the younger and Mr. Stephens the older child. Miss Ford then became
violently obstructive, screaming loudly and so drawing the lodging-house mistress, her 
daughters, and servants to the number of six or seven to the spot. The struggle of so many
against two became less unequal through the appearance of a local official, who rendered
Mrs. Edmunds invaluable assistance, and eventually both children were placed in a carriage
and their mother and grandfather drove off with them. Mr. Stephens was chiefly engaged in
keeping off the lodging-house mistress and her women helpers, while Mrs. Edmunds
endeavoured to obtain possession of the children from Miss Ford. No persons other than the
local official above referred to assisted Mrs. Edmunds and Mr. Stephens, the detective
remaining in charge of the carriage during the whole affair."
'Yesterday the local magistrates at Hythe granted Mr. C.W. Blaxland, solicitor, a summons
against Mr. H.C. Stephens, M.P., for assaulting Miss Ford. The date fixed for the hearing of
the summons is August 9.'
Another version of the story appeared in 'The Washington Post' of 21 August 1898:-
'Our Dover correspondent telegraphing last night, states that he has investigated the circum-
stances attending the extraordinary case of kidnapping two children at Hythe by their mother
and Mr. H.C. Stephens, M.P. for the Hornsey Division of Middlesex, and has gleaned the
following particulars from eye-witnesses of the scene: The children are two little boys, aged 
five and seven, respectively, the sons of Mr. Lewis Edmunds, Q.C. The parents have recently,
on account of some domestic dispute, been living apart. For some little time past the children
had been in a school at Folkestone, but a few days ago, owing to the fact that the holidays
were drawing near, the father decided to have them removed to Hythe, in charge of a young
lady [Miss Ford], who had previously acted as their governess. The place selected was 
Sutherland House, a somewhat large boarding house facing the sea and at the corner of a 
road. 
'It appears that Mr. Edmunds had some idea that an attempt would be made to seize the
children, for toward the end of last week he accompanied the children and their governess
to Hythe, and stayed there till Sunday or Monday, when he returned to London. Mr. Edmunds
gave the governess his written authority to take charge of the children, this authority being
dated July 21. The children had evidently been watched at Folkestone, for they had not been
transferred to Hythe many hours before s stranger called at the house and inquired if a lady
and gentleman and two children had arrived there. This and other circumstances excited
suspicion. Some men were next seen loitering about the house, evidently watching, and as
the number increased to four or five, Mr. Blaxland, a solicitor, also residing in the boarding-
house, thought it his duty to communicate with the Chief of Police, but the officer held it was
not a case in which he could interfere. The children were carefully guarded by the governess,
and kept in the house as much as possible. Yesterday, not wishing them to be too much
confined to the house, she allowed them to play on the lawn in front. The children had not
been there very long before they were kidnapped. This took place shortly after midday. The
house is approached through a gate, which leads directly on to the lawn, this being bounded
in front by a fence and some shrubs, and at the side by a high wall. It is behind this wall that
the governess believes some of the kidnapping party concealed themselves, as they rushed
in and took her completely by surprise.
'Seeing that a rush was being made for the children, the governess screamed, and in a few
seconds a wild struggle was taking place on the lawn. The screams of the governess attracted 
the attention of several of the neighbours and people in the house. She stated that the first
persons she saw run in at the gate were the children's mother and her father, Mr. Stephens,
M.P. Mr. Stephens was gesticulating to those present and exclaiming that he was a member
of Parliament, and a Justice of the Peace, and that those with him were Scotland Yard 
officers. In this way he succeeded in preventing assistance from being rendered with sufficient
promptness. The youngest child was first seized and handed over to one of the party standing
at the gate, who hurried him off to the carriage and pair which was in waiting a little way up
the street. The governess, who clung to the child, it is stated, was held by the throat. The
young lady, in referring to the scene, displayed considerable nervous excitement. The capture
of the second child quickly followed, and the carriages of which there were two, were rapidly
driven away in the direction of Folkestone. The whole occurrence happened in a very few
minutes, and was evidently planned to take place while Mr. Blaxland was away from the house.
'The carriages were hired in Hythe, and the abduction was carried out by four or five persons.
'It appears that the children were driven as far as Folkestone at a rapid pace, and thence to
Dover, where the party drove to the Lord Warden Hotel, proceeding to London, by London,
Chatham and Dover Railway.'
Finally, 'The Times' reported on 15 August 1898 on the outcome of the summons against 
Stephens for allegedly assaulting Miss Ford:-
'At Hythe Police-court, on Saturday, Mr. Blaxland, solicitor to Miss Ford, who issued a summons
against Mr. H.C. Stephens, M.P., for an alleged assault committed when Mr. Stephens took his
two grandchildren from her custody, applied for permission to withdraw the summons on the
ground that the case had been settled. The application was granted. The following is a copy,
signed by counsel, of the terms of arrangement:- "Since the issue of the summons,
proceedings in Judge's Chambers have resulted in an amicable arrangement under which the
children have been restored to their father's custody, and Miss Ford has consequently decided
to withdraw the summons against Mr. Stephens on the understanding that she did no more 
than she believed to be her duty on July 26 in carrying out the instructions of Mr. Lewis 
Edmunds, Q.C., the father of the children, and that Mr. Stephens in what he did was under the
belief that he was justified, having regard to his relationship to the children."
Edward Wortley-Montagu, MP for Huntingdonshire 1747-1754 and Bossiney 1754-1768
Edward Wortley Montagu was the son of Edward and Mary Wortley Montagu, daughter of the
5th Earl of Kingston upon Hull. His father appears to have been intellectually overshadowed by
Lady Mary, who was one of the foremost female literary figures of the eighteenth century, and
from whom her son appears to have inherited his eccentricities.
The following sketch of the life of Edward Wortley-Montagu appeared in the Australian monthly
magazine, "Parade," in its issue for April 1955:-
'One hot summer day in 1773, an aged man, his skin darkened by the Mediterranean sun, sat 
on a tiled floor in a Venetian mansion surrounded by all the luxuries of oriental splendour. On 
his head he wore the turban of a Mussulman; his beard touched his waist. At his side an 
Arabian youth knelt, took the wrinkled hand, kissed it and pressed it to his cheek. The old man 
bent and perfumed his beard with exotic incense rising from a smoking bowl. The man was 
Edward Wortley Montagu, rogue, charlatan, seducer and Englishman of the nobility.
'Montagu's mother was the famous Lady Mary Wortley Montagu, a woman of outstanding 
ability and wit. His father, Edward, lacked his wife's keen brain, but at his death left 
£1,340,000 to be fought over by his family.
'Edward the younger in his time was fishmonger, army officer, scholar, gambler, member of the
House of Commons and Fellow of the Royal Society. He was also, as the need arose, 
Protestant, Catholic and Mohammedan. He was the father of black, brown, brindle and white 
illegitimate children scattered from Turkey through Egypt, Italy and France to England. There 
were also a few about Holland, where he spent his military days.
'Edward's first and practically only innocent bleat escaped his lips shortly after he was born in
May of 1713. He was a troublesome baby and at the age of 14 months was still toothless.
When the child was four, his father was appointed His Britannic Majesty's ambassador to the 
Ottoman Empire. In Constantinople Lady Mary had her son immunized against smallpox, an 
action that caused an outcry in England. The child's veins were crudely opened, and a 
"nutshell" of smallpox pus rubbed into the wounds. It was then, Edward said later, he first took 
the blood of the Turk into his body.
Unfortunately, Edward Snr was a failure as a diplomat and he was recalled to England. Back in 
London it became apparent quickly that Edward had acquired a taste for luxury and soon
alarmed a succession of tutors with his ability to curse them heartily in French, Greek and 
Turkish. His linguistic ability was not appreciated and he was sent to school at Westminster to
learn figures, Edward spent most of his time escaping from the school, only to be returned by
his furious parents. In July, 1726, when in was 13, he decided to do things properly, and after
leaving the school by the back door enrolled himself at Oxford University for a course in 
Oriental languages. He took great care planning not only his lecture hours but his time for
leisure. Soon Edward was found to be living with his delectable young landlady, a girl of 20.
It was much against his will that his parents interrupted his premature essays into love and
linguistics and again reduced him to the status of a schoolboy.
'For the next four years Edward was sent abroad to collect himself and straighten his twisted
character, but in 1730 he was back in London keeping good health and bad company and in 
the process of acquiring a wife. The first Mrs. Edward Wortley Montagu was variously 
described as a laundress or washerwoman. Her name was Sally and Edward married her in a
frolic. Thus he was easily persuaded to part with her.
'Little is known of his life for the next eight years except "he visited Italy, kept bad company
in Venice, irritated Mr. Horace Mann in Florence, and borrowed money from Mr. Birtles in 
Genoa." Edward failed at all his enterprises (except the conquest of the ladies) and his 
despairing father had him appointed a cornet [second-lieutenant] in the 7th Hussars in Holland.
He spent most of his military career begging his father for an increased allowance. Two years
later, as a result of effective "string-pulling," Edward was appointed Capt.-Lieut. in the Royal
Scots. But there was still one fly in his ointment. He could not return to England, for a host of
creditors was waiting to pounce on him there.
'His problem was solved when, with a little more stretching of the string, he was appointed to
Parliament, thus getting immunity from creditors. Political life - he never got around to making
a maiden speech or visiting his constituency - appealed to Edward and he resigned from the
Army.
'In April, 1748, he was appointed a British secretary to the congress at Aix-la-Chapelle. The
pickings were good, and Edward returned to London to show himself in the streets in satin
suits with diamond buttons and buckles. The most curious part of his dress was an iron wig,
remarkably lifelike [One of his biographies, by Jonathan Curling, is entitled "Edward Wortley
Montagu: The Man in the Iron Wig."] But despite his satin and diamonds Edward had not lost
his high delight in low company.
'In fact he met his next "wife" while visiting the cell of a friend, a highwayman waiting to have
his neck stretched. Elizabeth Ashe, a short, plump beauty of dubious morals, was also a friend
of the unhappy knight of the road. With two male friends to add to the revelry, Edward and
Elizabeth spent their "honeymoon" in Paris. The joys of "marital" bliss were interrupted only by
Edward's arrest and imprisonment for cheating a friend of 120 louis d'or with loaded dice. Later
Edward was cleared of the charge, but meanwhile Elizabeth could find no use for a penniless
"husband" and he returned alone to London.
'During the next seven years Edward did little except father, as far as history records, three
natural children whose maternity is obscure, and divide his time between his house in London
and another at Boreham Wood, in each of which he maintained a mistress.
'At 83 Edward's father acceded to his son's persistent and secret wishes. In January, 1761, he
lay on his bed and died. Old Wortley Montagu left £1,340,000, practically all to his daughter, 
the Countess of Bute. Edward and Lady Mary were not so lucky, for Edward received but an
annuity of £1,600 and his mother £1,200. Edward, the affectionate son as ever, threatened to
circulate a story that he was the son of a union between his mother and the Sultan Mustafa
unless he was given a greater part of the estate. His story was that his mother, disguised as 
a eunuch, gained access to the sultan's seraglio and, being recognised, was admitted to his 
bed. The fact that he was three when his mother was in Constantinople was forgotten by that
time. His purpose failed and Edward decided to leave England forever. He farmed out his four
illegitimate sons, but decided to take his daughter Mary to Venice with him.
'It was in this city of canals that Edward's "Turkish blood" welled in his veins. He adopted a 
turban, grew an impressive beard and clothed himself in splendid robes. He was not very 
surprised when news reached him that his mother had died, leaving him "one golden guinea."
'Mary was an encumbrance to Edward, so he entered her in a convent and sailed for Egypt,
where his amorous inclinations soon got him into trouble. At Alexandria the aging roué became
acquainted with the Danish Consul, Herr Feroe, whose wife, Caroline, unfortunately for the
consul, was a particularly lovely and charming young woman. Edward quickly decided Catherine
would be a worthy successor to his other conquests and engaged Feroe to go to Holland on
business for him. When the consul had been absent for an appropriate time, Edward produced
a forged letter, telling of the consul's untimely death by drowning. Caroline, just 22, drowned
her grief as quickly as Edward had drowned her husband and agreed to marry the 51-years-old
rogue if he became a Catholic. The marriage was duly solemnised, in a fashion, and Edward
carried Caroline off to Cairo. His departure was hastened by news that the consul had been
resuscitated and was on his way back to Egypt. The couple crossed Egypt to Suez and began 
a tour of the Holy Land in pursuit of Edward's "archaeological studies." At her own request
Edward left Caroline in a convent in Syria until the annulment of her marriage to Herr Feroe,
who was a Protestant, was proclaimed, and left hurriedly for Italy. There he stayed, afraid to
return, while the consul continued to utter violent threats against his person.
'In the summer of 1766 Edward heard of Feroe's return to Europe, and he sailed for Alexandria
to rejoin Caroline. Later that year Edward again decided to visit Turkey, and was perhaps the
first Englishman to enter Constantinople bearded, turbaned and talking fluent Turkish. He
hobnobbed with the Kapitan Pasha and was treated to all the Turkish luxuries he so richly
enjoyed.
'Back in Egypt his passion for the Turkish way of life became an obsession and the Montagu
household was divided into separate quarters for men and women. Any infringement of the
segregation angered him. But Edward was tiring of Caroline. The end came after the arrival
of Ayesha, an Arabian beauty as black as ink whom Edward had maintained in another house-
hold in Egypt. Ayesha brought with her Massoud, her son, whose skin was lighter than his
mother's and whose features, in some respects, bore a striking resemblance to the lord of
the ménage. Caroline tried hard to ignore Ayesha, but it was no longer possible when in May,
1772, Edward added the black beauty and Massoud to his household, making the boy his heir.
'Giving full play to his twisted character, Edward forced Caroline from his household, and to
complete the change-over accepted the Muhammedan faith. Ayesha's black loveliness soon
lost its attraction and, taking Massoud, Edward abandoned her as he had Sally, Elizabeth
Ashe, Caroline Feroe and countless other unnamed women.
'He intended to take Massoud to Mecca for the ceremony of circumcision - Edward had 
intended to be initiated with the boy - but because of political unrest in Arabia, went to Italy
instead. In Venice in 1775 he set up his "little piece of Turkey," and until his death became one
of the sights of the city. When Edward received visitors he met them at the stair head and led
them through a series of apartments furnished in the Venetian style.  A pair of black double
doors were then thrown open by unseen hands, disclosing an inner room decorated with tiled
walls, a painted wooden ceiling, a banquette [an upholstered bench] running the length of the
wide recessed window and a small fountain playing in the middle of the floor. There were no
chairs, but the guests sat on a sofa while Edward placed himself on a cushion on the carpet 
and crossed his legs in the Turkish fashion. He served the visitors with sickly-sweet coffee
while a handsome young negro, magnificently garbed and turbaned in turquoise satin, handed
them dried figs and little cubes of Turkish delight.
'Before his death Edward decided to visit Padua, and there his final illness struck him. He died 
in an inn, saying to a monk who was mildly interested under which God he intended to die, "I 
die, I hope, a good Mussulman."
