104 b. c.1615, 2nd s. of Sir Thomas Wharton of Aske by Lady Philadelphia Carey, da. of Robert Carey?, 1st Earl of Monmouth. educ. Eton 1624-5; Exeter, Oxf. matric. 3 Mar. 1626, aged 11; travelled abroad (France) 1629-32; L. Inn 1638. m. (1) 1645, his cos. Lady Mary Carey (d. June 1672), da. of Henry Carey?, 1st Earl of Dover, 1s. 3da.; (2) lic. 20 Apr. 1677, Jane, da. of Rowland Dand of Mansfield Woodhouse, Notts., wid. of Leonard Robinson of Ravensworth, Yorks., 2da. KB 2 Feb. 1626.

Wharton, a younger brother of the fourth lord, was brought up in a deeply Calvinistic household, 'frequenting God's house not only twice on the Lord's day, but ordinarily on lecture days'. As a young man, he went to seek his fortune in Ireland, proving himself a good soldier and becoming something of a favourite with Ormonde, the lord lieutenant, who sent him as an envoy to the Long Parliament in May 1643. His brother, who was active on the committee of both Houses on Irish affairs, used him as an intermediary in 1646 to negotiate with his old commander for the surrender to Parliament of the remaining royal garrisons in Ireland. He acquired several adventures of forfeited land in co. Meath, and during the Interregnum he helped his royalist cousin, Sir Philip Musgrave, to buy back his property.

In February 1660 Wharton presented to George Monck the Yorkshire declaration for a free Parliament, and in March he was reported to have pledged himself to work for a restoration. He was returned for Westmorland at the general election on the family interest, defeating Thomas Burton by 150 votes, and was put down as one of his brother's ?managers' for a dozen counties. He was appointed to five committees in the Convention, including those on the bills for restitution to Ormonde and the Earl of Inchiquin, another prominent Irish loyalist. His services were rewarded with the wardenship of the Mint in reversion. In a debate on the bill for religion on 16 July he admitted that he was 'in his judgment episcopal', but moved to consult the divines, and a fortnight later he proposed to give Sir George Booth £10,000 and a vote of thanks for his part in the Restoration. He wrote to Ormonde to recommend some Presbyterian ministers who had preached 'honestly and boldly' for the King. Further evidence of his religious sympathies is provided by his appointment to the committees for the better observation of the Lord's day and the suppression of profanity. On 17 Nov. he was added to the committee to bring in a bill for modified episcopacy, in accordance with the Worcester House declaration. He gave evidence to vindicate his brother from complicity in the plot against the life of Charles I on the Isle of Wight.

Wharton did not stand for re-election. In 1662 he purchased Edlington, and later acquired further lands in Westmorland and Yorkshire. Ormonde insisted on the payment of his arrears in 1663 as 'the only man, so far as I know, of the then army, besides myself, who paid his men for a whole year out of his own purse', and he was compensated with a grant of lands in Ireland worth £300 p.a. He sold his company in Ireland at this time. When his reversion to the Mint fell in after 20 years, he showed little more than a dilettante interest in his department. The Westmorland freeholders were canvassed on his behalf in 1681, but he did not go to the poll. He died on 30 Oct. 1684 and was buried at Edlington. In his will, he left £2,000 to the archbishop of York and the bishop of Chester to buy up impropriations where the ministers' stipends were small, so as to encourage preaching. His son survived him for only six months, and his granddaughter brought the Edlington estate to Robert Byerley

Offices Held
Commr. for assessment, Yorks. (E. Riding) 1664-80, 1689-90, j.p. 1667-d., lt-col. of militia ft. ?1669-91, dep. lt. 1670-Apr. 1688; commr. for concealments, Yorks. 1671, recusants (E. Riding) 1675; freeman, Beverley 1684.2

Capt. Lord Belasyse?s Ft. 1673; maj. Lord Northampton?s Ft. 1673-4; capt. indep. co. Hull 1678-9.3

A younger son, Warton was an active militia officer, but his efforts to achieve a permanent commission were doomed to frustration. Unlike his brother and nephew, his political sympathies were probably Tory.

On 21 Jan. 1684 the corporation of Beverley awarded him the freedom of the borough in recognition of his letter to the Duke of Somerset to present his Majesty the humble address of the corporation; as also his free promise of assistance to procure a new fair and also as lt.-col. of the regiment of the said Duke in procuring the trained bands of the East Riding to appear here and continue four days to the great advantage of the town. He was returned for the borough with his brother in the following year, defeating the Whig Sir John Hotham, 2nd Bt.

A moderately active Member of James II?s Parliament, he was appointed to the committee of elections and privileges and to five others, of which the most important were to recommend remedies for the decline in corn and wool prices, to consider the bill for the suppression of pedlars, and to reform the bankruptcy laws.

Danby probably intended to list him among the Opposition. To the lord lieutenant?s questions on the repeal of the Test Act and Penal Laws in 1688 he returned the same answer as James Hebblethwaite, and was removed from the lieutenancy. In December he helped to secure Hull for William of Orange, but he did not stand again.

He died on 6 Nov. 1700 and was buried in St. Mary?s, Beverley.4

112 Biography written by Gail Brumfitt

Samuel was the middle child of five children born to Samuel (1863-1940) and Martha Morris Wharton (née Matthews 1858-1933). His siblings were Joseph Richard (1885-1967), Kate Morris (1887-1942), Mary Evelyn (1896-1981), and Ada Louise (1900-1903). Samuel senior was born in Caldy where the Wharton family had been living for many generations. Martha was born in Wavertree.

In 1891, not long before Samuel?s birth, the family were living at Brook Terrace, West Kirby. Samuel senior was working as a horse driver and was aged 28. Martha was 33 and their children were, Joseph (5), and Kate (3). The family had three lodgers to supplement their income, Joseph Bird who was also a horse driver was born in Grange and was aged 18. Enoch Jones, also aged 18 was born in Bebington and was a railway porter. Joseph Slater, who was another horse driver, aged 18 was born in Pensnett, Staffordshire. Interestingly, Joseph Bird became the second husband of Samuel Wharton senior?s sister, Mary Ellen Wharton (1867-1956).

In 1901 the family had moved to 5 Albert Road, West Kirby where Samuel senior was now employed as a foreman in a coal yard. All of his children were at home ? Joseph was 15 and was working as a labourer in a coal yard, Kate was 14, Samuel 9, Mary 5 and Ada 1.The Pownall family from Caldy were visiting. 1911 shows that the family had moved to 15 Groveland Avenue, Hoylake, and all were at home except for Ada who had died in 1903, and Samuel who was now working as a milk hand for John Price, farmer, at Home Farm Meols.

Samuel enlisted at Hoylake but sadly his service records do not exist. Initially Samuel was posted to the 2nd Bn South Lancashire Regiment and he served some time in France. He was wounded in about February 1917 and then transferred to the 350th Protection Company, Royal Defence Corps. Little is known about the protection companies but they were mainly engaged in guarding work ? POW camps, vulnerable points (docks etc), Ireland, and M.I. and special military areas (government, camps, munitions etc). A total of 27,000 men were employed as such in 1918.

Whilst with the RDC Samuel was stationed at Prees Heath military camp in Shropshire. He had visited his home whilst on leave in mid October 1918, however, seven days after returning to camp, Samuel succumbed to pneumonia. The Deeside Advertiser reported a funeral notice detailing a long list of mourners including many family and friends.

Samuel?s cousin, Frank Wharton, also appears on the Grange Hill War Memorial.

128 Born on 03 October 1896 in Ingoldisthorpe, Norfolk,
Died 25 Apr 1956 in Ingoldisthorpe, Norfolk
Spouse: Vera May Martin (1907-1986)

Hugh was the second son of Arthur Philip Wharton (1867-1962) and Ellen Rose Matthews (1862-1925). He had a brother called Sydney Alfred Wharton (1895-1916) and a sister called Kathleen May Wharton (1899-1986).

He was christened on 15 November 1896 at St Andrew's Church in Bircham Tofts, Norfolk and lived with is family at Pond House in Bircham Tofts which I believe was also a farm and the 1911 Census is the last entry showing him living there.

World War 1
On 10 December 1915, at the age of 19, Hugh enlisted with the Army (#78921) serving in H2, 179th Siege Battery Royal Garrison Artillery as a Gunner and Signaller during World War 1. On his enlistment papers it says his trade was "Farmer" and that he was 5'11 tall. He spent some time in Winchester (presumably training) before being posted overseas on 3 November 1916 and arrived in Le Harve on 5 November 1916. Thankfully, The RGA were responsible for the heavy, large calibre guns and howitzers that were positioned some way behind the front line.
He stayed in the Army until the war was over in 1919 (posted for dispersal September 1919). His brother Sidney Alfred Wharton, also enlisted but sadly died during the Battle of the Somme in 1916 just a few short months before Hugh was posted overseas in France as well. One can only imagine the pain that my great grandparents must have gone through during that time.
Marriage and Children
In 1930 he became engaged and 0n 17 November 1931, he married Vera May Martin (1907-1986). Vera was from a large family of farmers in Barmer in Norfolk. Seven months later Vera gave birth to my father John Arthur Martin Wharton on 16th June 1932 and seven years later his brother David Hugh Wharton was born in 1939. It's believed that Vera lost a girl to miscarriage some time before David was born.

Old Hall Farm, Ingoldisthorpe
Sometime after the war, Hugh began work as a farmer at Old Hall Farm. I believe his father Arthur Philip Wharton had moved here at some point from Pond House in Bircham Tofts and Hugh eventually took over. All I do know is that upon his death on 25 April 1956 his wife Vera was not able to cope with the farm, with both sons not wanting to be farmers, and my father already a police officer in London. Vera had to sadly give up the farm. Viscountess Ruth Frances Althorpe (Princess Diana's mother) was listed as owning Old Hall Farm in 1957.

Hugh passed away on 25 April 1956 after suffering from cancer aged 59.
