Ferdinando Forster, MP for Northumberland Jan-Aug 1701
Forster was killed in August 1701 following an argument with a John Fenwick. The following
article appeared in the "Monthly Chronicle of north-country lore and legend" in its issue for
March 1887:-
'The Forsters and the Fenwicks were equally ancient, and almost equally important, 
Northumberland families. The former rose to the highest position short of ennoblement when
James I bestowed upon them the castle and manor of Bamborough, and they fell from this
high estate along with their neighbour and relative, Lord Derwentwater, in the rebellion of 
1715. Thomas Forster, who took so prominent a part in that unfortunate rising, was the son
of Ferdinando Forster, of whose tragic fate we now have to write. The Fenwicks had been
famed in Border legend ever since Northumberland and South Scotland had scribes to indite
their rude annals, or poets to sing their deeds of robbery, love, and war. They are of far-
dated Saxon origin, and derived their name as a clan from their ancient fastnesses in the
fenny lands about Stamfordham. The House of Percy from of old looked upon the Fenwykes
(such was the original spelling) as amongst its most faithful and foremost retainers. From
the dawn of history they were in the van of all the border fights, and a slogan or gathering 
cry, "A Fenwyke!, a Fenwyke!, a Fenwyke!" was a deadly sound in the ears of the Scotch
invaders. From the time of Edward IV to that of William III, the head seat of the Fenwyke
family was Wallington. But they were evidently a prolific as well as a powerful clan, for their
roots struck out far and wide until their name is so truly Northumbrian that a Fenwick would 
be hailed as a son of the far North by Englishmen all the world over.
'In the year 1701 one John Fenwick was residing at Rock Hall, near Alnwick. His wealth appears
to have been derived in some considerable measure from a colliery at Kenton, near Newcastle.
He was regarded as a man of high position, and in this capacity, as was natural, his name
figured in the grand jury lists of the county. He had been summoned to serve in Newcastle at
the Summer Assizes, and was in attendance on this duty. Ferdinando Forster, of Bamborough
Castle, Member of Parliament for Northumberland, was in town on the same service. On
the 22nd of August, the Grand Jury dined together at the Black Horse Inn, then the best 
house of entertainment in Newcastle, but since taken down to make way for the present 
Clayton Street. Tradition glorifies these banquets at Assize time as among the most festive
re-unions for country gentlemen the period afforded. The Whigs of the day swore by the Act
of Settlement and the Protestant Succession, whereas the Tories plotted and brooded over
their treason in the hope that one day it would be hatched into a new revolution. Most of the
Fenwicks were inclined to the Jacobite cause, and it may be assumed that the Forster [I think
the author means Fenwick] who took part in the Derwentwater rising was not the first of his
name who had favoured the hopeless cause of the Stuarts.
'Only three [four] years before the date of our tale, Sir John Fenwick, of Wallington, had been
beheaded on Tower Hill for "compassing and imagining the death of the king, and adhering to
his enemies" - a crime which was specially created by an Act of Parliament to secure his
condemnation. We need not suppose, then, that the gentlemen of the grand jury quarrelled
about politics over their cups in the hostelry of the Black Horse; but it is clear that there was
some sort of family feud between Mr. Forster, of Bamborough, and this particular Fenwick, of
Rock. It may have been an old family quarrel, or some dispute about lands and territorial rights.
One tradition points to a gambling transaction as the origin of the bad feeling between the two
squires. It is more than probable that there had been an old grudge rankling in one or other or
both hearts, and that the excitement of the gaming table had stirred the smouldering fire to
flame. According to the version given by Mr. Edward Collingwood, Recorder for Newcastle, to
Alderman Hornby - and purporting to have been transmitted from the Recorder's father, who
was an eye-witness of the quarrel, if not of the actual tragedy - the immediate provocation
was that Mr. Fenwick came into the dining chamber hilariously singing a partizan song, of
which the refrain was "Sir John Fenwick's the flower among them." and as this ditty was in
glorification of the Fenwick clan as compared with the Forsters and many other North-Country
families, the member for the shire took umbrage at the arrogant sentiment. Heated words were
exchanged, and matters would have been speedily carried to extremity but for the intervention
of the rest of the company.
'So far as appearances went, the mediation was successful, but unfortunately events proved
that the wounds in the feelings of both gentlemen had only been skimmed over. They quaffed
"the cup of kindness" together, but it was a simulated healing of the feud. The next day Mr.
Fenwick and Mr. Forster met by accident in Newgate Street, on a spot where a white thorn
grew, and near to the Old White Cross. Here the ill blood of the previous night began to grow
hot once more. Angry words were exchanged. Both gentlemen wore swords - as did all who
pretended to the quality of gentlefolk in those days - and in a few minutes they were engaged
in fierce combat. Mr. Forster was killed, and Mr. Fenwick fled for his life.
'Another account says that the quarrel of the dining-room issued in a challenge, which was
accepted on the spot, and while the two enraged squires were going out to fight in the open
air, Fenwick came stealthily behind Forster and stabbed him the back. This would seem to be
the more likely version, because in those days fatal results from duelling were rarely, if ever,
construed into murder, as was the case in this instance. It also tallies better with the tradition
that Mr. Fenwick became a fugitive, and was only captured after a long search. An entry in 
the old register of St. Andrew's shows that a reward of forty shillings was actually paid to a
man as a reward for pursuing and taking Fenwick after the fatal affair at the white thorn tree.
'But whether it was a dastardly assassination or a stand-up fight, it is obvious that the slayer
of so important a person as Mr. Forster - a knight of the shire - would be sure in the first
instance to aim at concealment and escape. It is probable he did not get very far; indeed, it
is said that he was almost instantly taken in a garden attached to a house in Gallowgate.
'The Assizes were still proceeding, so that the preliminary examination before the magistrates
led to Fenwick being forthwith put upon his trial before the very judge with whom a few days
before he had been engaged as an assessor and dispenser of justice. He was found guilty
and sentenced to be hanged - an extreme instance of legal vengeance, if we are to assume
the fact of a duel, but unexceptionable on the supposition of cowardly stabbing. It is quite in
accordance with the custom of that day that he should have been sentenced to be hung [sic]
on the actual scene of his crime; and hence may have originated the statement that he was
hanged near the white thorn tree. The Collingwood account preserved in the manuscript notes
of Alderman Hornby, which professes to be in correction of the common report relied on by
Brand in his "History of Newcastle," represents the execution as having taken place on a
scaffold erected for the purpose between the gaol and the governor's house. Both versions
agree in the story of the town gates being shut prior to and during the execution. One of them
alleges as the reason for this extra precaution the great veneration felt throughout the 
northern part of the county for the name of Fenwick - a reverence which, in these lawless 
times, was very apt to show itself in open defiance of judge, gaoler, and hangman. The other
account assigns a more specific object of fear to the minds of the authorities. The Kenton
pitmen were employed by Mr. Fenwick, and it was thought that they would create a riot, 
under cover of which they might rescue their unfortunate master. There appears to be no
doubt, however, that the gates were shut, and this fact alone would show what solemnity
the justices attached to an occasion on which a Fenwick was to suffer death for the murder
of a Forster.'
Lord Henry Hugh Manvers Percy VC, MP for Northumberland North 1865-1868
Lord Henry was the third son of George Percy, 5th Duke of Northumberland. During the
Crimean War, he was a Colonel in the 3rd Battalion of the Grenadier Guards when he won
a Victoria Cross due to his bravery at the Battle of Inkerman on 5 November 1854.
During this battle he found himself with many men of various regiments who had charged
too far, and as a result were nearly surrounded by the Russians, and without ammunition.
Although he was himself already wounded, he was able to use his knowledge of the 
ground where he found himself to extricate around 50 men, under heavy fire, eventually
being able to bring them to a place of safety.
Charles Paget, MP for Nottingham 1856-1865
The London 'Morning Post' 15 October 1873:-
'On Monday afternoon Mr Charles Paget, of Ruddington Grange, Nottinghamshire, and Mrs
Paget, with her sister, Miss Talbutt, who have been staying at Filey, went on the rocks 
near Filey Brigg. Whilst they were sitting there a huge wave suddenly broke over them, and
threw them into the sea. A girl who was near went to the rescue, and, holding by a piece
of seaweed fastened to the rocks, stretched out one hand to Miss Talbutt, whom she seized
and brought safely to the shore. Mr Paget and his wife were unfortunately drowned.'
Arthur Hayday, MP for Nottingham West 1918-1931 and 1935-1945
I have never seen any information which enables me to point to any MP and say that he or
she had the greatest number of children of any member of the House of Commons. However,
Arthur Hayday would be a good candidate. The following article from its 'Special Foreign
Correspondent' appeared in the 'Los Angeles Times' on 8 May 1921:-
'Arthur Hayday, the Labor member of Parliament, whose American wife recently presented him
with his eighteenth child, talked to me at the House of Commons yesterday about his big and
ever-growing family. He gave a funny account of the ingenious economies and makeshifts that
he and his thrifty better half and compelled to devise and practice in order to maintain as
extensive a household as his on the slender income of a British M.P. and a trade union official.
'The late Theodore Roosevelt would have approved unreservedly of Arthur Hayday, who is fast
qualifying as a modern rival of the celebrated old woman who lived in a shoe. Like her, Hayday 
does not quite know what to do with so many, though he has learned a lot by experience. This
Labour member, who represents West Nottingham in the House of Commons, has been married
twice. He had nine children by his first wife and has now been presented with a similar number
by his second. Thirteen of his offspring are alive and nine are at Nottingham in his six-room 
home. Eight have been boys and ten girls, the newest arrival being a daughter. He has four
children married. Hayday himself is one of a family of sixteen, and his wife one of fifteen
brothers and sisters.
'Mrs Hayday's maiden name was Breden and she comes from Newark, N.J. She met her 
husband in England about twelve years ago and they got married soon afterward, despite his
large first family and her own family's record for fecundity. "Pluck, I calls it!" says one of his
constituents.
'The member for West Nottingham, one of the most picturesque and forceful personalities in
the House, started on the bottom rung of the ladder and found its ascent toilsome.
'He was born fifty-one years ago in the locality known as the Tidal Basin in the West Ham 
district of London, one of the poorest in the city, and when he was 9 started work as helper
to a market gardener. After that he was a kitchen boy at the Albert Docks, and finally, when
he was old enough, joined the mercantile marine and was a trimmer, stoker and fireman. He
has been Labor's representative for West Nottingham since 1918, and is Vice-President of the
National Union of General Workers, which has been largely built up in Nottinghamshire and the
neighbouring counties through his influence.
'The title of "Father of the House of Commons" is commonly borne by some member who is at
least a septuagenarian, but it was unanimously handed to Arthur Hayday when the advent of
his eighteenth child became known to his fellow members. His progeny has been named as
follows in order of arrival: Arthur, Thomas, Ethel, Maud, Rose, Ellen, Harry, Grace, Nancy, 
William, Frederick, Harold, Evelyn, George, Ruth and Doris. The new baby, who, like its proud
mother, is doing well, has not been named as yet. One of Hayday's kiddies died as a baby,
unnamed. Harry, his third son, was drowned at sea during the war. Doris, George and Ruth
have died.'
Several other newspaper articles subsequent to 1921 suggest that Hayday fathered two more 
children, bringing his total to 20.
