John FARGUS , d. 1801 in ?Bristol.

Bristol Directories:

1785 - Not there

1791 - Bristol - John FARGUS, broker at 3 Castle Ditch

1794 - Auctioneer at 3 Castle Ditch

1798 - Matthews Bristol Directory: Fargus & Branson at 3 Castle Ditch, Bristol

John (snr)'s Will was proved on 24.12.1801 at Bristol. Ann's, dated 04.10.180(6?), named her "son John (otherwise William)", daughters Catherine FARGUS, Mary CONNERY (husband John), Ann GREEN (husband William) and Elizabeth FARGUS, and grandson William Henry CONNERY.

A codicil dated 16.05.1820 showed that Catherine had daughter, Elizabeth FARGUS, and grandson William Henry CONNERY. It also showed that Catherine had married Charles WESTWOOD and they had a daughter Eliza Ann. The Will was proved on 26.01.1822. (Da. Ann was married 07.01.1790, Mary 06.08.1794, Elizabeth (to John HOARE) 10.08.1804 and Catherine 07.02.1807, all at St Joseph-RC, Bristol.)

He married Ann __________ (?Nancy DAVIS), d. 1822.

Directories:

1815, 1815 and 1819 - Mrs Ann FARGUS at Brunswick Sq.

I. Elizabeth FARGUS , b. 5 MAR 1782. They married by licence. Both signed the register. She married John HOARE, married 11 Aug 1804 in St Pauls, Bristol, GLS.2

II. John (aka William) FARGUS , b. ? 17 AUG 1784,2 occupation Auctioneer/General Mercht, d. 3rd qtr 1854 in , Bristol, GLS.2 Will index says 'William, commonly called John'.

John (jnr) had an elder brother William who was b. and ch. 28.07.1780 at St Joseph-RC, Bristol and presumably died, hence John's desire to assume his name. His Will, was written in the name of William on 08.03.1854 and proved on 08.08.1854 at London, named his children as Henry Robert, Frederic(k) Charles, Olivia Maria, Emily Frances and Julia Elizabeth, all surnamed FARGUS, and a deceased daughter Mary Louisa MILLS (Will pr.1853, m.Thomas MILLS 26.04.1834).

Greg Finch writes (2001):'last night, my mother told me that she recalled a Brigadier-General Fargus living in Exmouth (my home town). This was about 50 years ago when she worked in a Boots Library, and he was a member, an old man at the time. She remembers him as a very courteous and friendly old man. She also recalls that his birthday was either the 13th or 15th February because he had told her that had he been born either the day before or day after (she can't remember which) he would have been named Valentine'.

He married Helen Mary SKINNER, married Q4 1878 in , Richmond, SRY,2 b. circa 1856 in , , , India.2 Helen: Grand-daughter of Col. James Skinner, the originator of 'Skinner's Horse', a famous Indian Cavalry Regiment:

Perhaps the most prominent Anglo-Indian to help establish the British Raj in India was the legendary James Skinner. He was born in 1775, the son of a Scotsman and a Rajput woman. He was also known as Sikander Sahib. He raised a freelance force, which fought on behalf of many Indian ruling princes. His men were known as the "yellow boys", since they used to wear yellow shawls in battle. Skinner’s irregular cavalry was called "Skinners' Horse". It became the finest regiment of the Honourable East India Company (which usually acted very dishonourably). Skinner’s Horse later became a part of independent India’s Army. In 1978 the Indian Government issued a postage stamp to celebrate 175 years of the Skinners' Horse Regiment. Similarly, the Gardner's Horse, founded by Colonel William Linnaeus Gardner, is also one of India's proud regiments today. (found on internet)

He married Charlotte Mary TRIMMER, married 14 Aug 1915 in , Knutsford, CHS,2 b. cir CA 1881 in , , CANada, occupation Nanny of King George III, d. 1952 in , Edinburgh, SCT. Charlotte: Greg Finch says (2001): Charlotte Fargus (nee Trimmer) lost her brother Alfred Syer Trimmer in World War One - he was a Major in the Canadian Army, and was killed at Vimy Ridge in 1917. So she lost her brother and her husband lost his brother during the same conflict. Not a unique tragedy I fear, but still quite poignant.

Charlotte Trimmer (c.1881-1952) was the daughter of Wilfred Trimmer of Huntsville, Ontario. (c.1850- bef 1907), cousin of my great grandmother Ethel Rose Trimmer (1871-1946). In 1915 she married Nigel Harry Skinner Fargus (1881-1962) in Cheshire - probably in Knutsford, home of her aunt Jessie Spurrier (nee Trimmer).

Nigel and Charlotte Fargus were living at Woodlands, St. Arvans Monmouthshire by 1940, when Nigel acted as Executor in the will of Charlotte's late aunt Jessie Spurrier. She had moved to St.Arvans herself after her husband George died in Cheshire in 1934.
