John Stubbs' diaries (1853-60): names beginning S

These are my original working notes, made quite a few years ago in the days before broadband and easy access to census records etc.  I have done a certain amount of extra work in getting them ready to post here, so some of the entries are now up-to-date.

They include quotations from George Whitehead's Journals, ed. Helier Hibbs, which have been an invaluable resource for which I am very grateful. 

As with the A-Z of Hutton Rudby people, my accuracy is NOT guaranteed!  And I'm afraid they are not quite in alphabetical order.

Mark Hall SMALLWOOD of Boroughbridge
A close friend in 1856-8 was Mark Hall Smallwood, who was working as a bank clerk in Boroughbridge at the time.  He was much the same age as John’s brother Joe, and his sister Martha was the wife of Dr Crosby’s nephew William, a grocer in York.
Smallwood is mentioned nearly every day during the two years he spent in Boroughbridge.  He was part of the social circle of teas, suppers and rural pastimes, he went walking in the Lakes with James Sedgwick in 1857 and he and John went on a holiday to Wales together in the summer of 1858.  He left Boroughbridge to work in Scarborough in Sep 1858, and afterwards would return for a few days to revisit old friends.  In Oct 1858 he sent John a gold pin for his birthday.

Smallwood became manager of the York City and County Bank at Scarborough, and when Alice was in the town on holiday in 1875 she and friends went to see him. 
“He has a beautiful house and magnificently furnished and gave them champagne and other good things and made many enquiries about you  he has a niece a ward of his who is still at school but is to live with him when finished   she has two thousand a year    he has a bed room well furnished for her  a boudoir and a maid all ready for her   so you can imagine your old friend.”  [Mary Stubbs' letter]
The 1881 Census shows him living at 33 St Nicholas Street at the bank, still unmarried.
 His nephew Edward Crosby who was also a bank clerk was staying with him, as was Mrs Rebecca Hesp, a farmer’s widow.  Smallwood’s housekeeper Mrs Sarah Baxter, who was Scarborough born, was in the household and also James Baxter, a joiner, and the ten year old Albert Baxter; they are described as visitors, but were presumably her husband and son.  There was also a general servant aged 16.

General histories etc:

Hugh Stott died 7 Sep 1851

“Records of a Yorkshire Manor” by Sir Thos Lawson Tancred 1937    [cf JRS family & friends and for fuller details of Lawson-Newcastle electoral dispute]
In 1778 the Duke of Newcastle bought the Crown Inn from the Tancreds for voting purposes, and then the houses.  The Crown was then brought up to date as a coaching inn, the manor house pulled down, and stabling built.
In 1779 Sir Thomas Tancred conveys to Mr John Fretwell those 5 several mess: &c in Bbdge occupied by Francis Naylor, W Naylor, John Stead, Matthew Glenton and Hugh Stott.
“The coaching days in Boroughbridge will always be connected with the name of Hugh Stott who kept the Crown when the Coaching era was at its zenith.  Under his management the Crown became one of the best known Coaching Inns on the Great North Road.  He had the contract for horsing the Mails and kept up a very large Stable, whilst his management of the Inn was famous.  The Coaching era did not last long after this, as the coming of the railways in about 1840 diverted the traffic.”
The Deponents allege that a notice of election of bailiffs was signed by Hugh Stott, but was in the handwriting of one of Hirst’s clerks, and that Stott was a Newcastle tenant, and that Hirst was guiding Stott in which votes to accept, in violation of the proper way of voting
