Narrative and Notes

Esther BAILEY was born in Hinckley in 1843/44 and was the daughter of Joseph BAILEY, a milkman, and Esther BATES. She was christened on 19 July 1843 at Saint Mary, Hinckley.

Her surname, BAILEY, was subsequently used as a christian name for several generations in the GARNER and WEAVER family.

In 1861 Esther was living with her mother at Trinity Lane, Hinckley. John GARNER, who became her husband in 1862, was also living on Trinity Lane in 1861 - there are only 7 houses between them in the census - which explain perhaps how they met. Her aunt, Priscilla BAILEY, was one of the witnesses to her marriage.

Esther BAILEY was John GARNER's first wife and the mother of his five children: Arthur, Esther Elizabeth (Lizzie), Willoughby ('Wink'), Thomas (Tom) and John W.

Esther died of bronchitis in April 1882 aged just 38.

SUDDEN DEATH OF A HINKLEY BUILDER

INQUEST AND VERDICT

It is our painful duty this week to chronicle the death of Mr. John Garner, carpenter and builder, Trinity Lane, which took place very suddenly on Sunday afternoon. As deceased was well known, not only in the town, but also throughout a large area of the surrounding district, the news of his demise will be received with profound regret.

Deceased was by trade a carpenter, and he also undertook building, having erected a goodly number of houses in the locality of Trinity Lane the whole work of which he superintended and carried out by his own workmen. Mr. Garner was apprenticed to Mr. Flavell, and after working his apprenticeship for many years worked for the firm of Messrs T. and G. Harrold. He was industrious and known to be a man of strict business habits. as is well known, the deceased was closely associated with the temperance movement in the town. He generally attended the meetings of the association, and on one or two occasions at the local licensing courts presented petitions in opposition to the granting of new applications. For many years Mr. Garner was a diligent director of the Hinckley Permanent Benefit Building Society, and in this capacity rendered signal help to the society. He also took a prominent part in establishing the coffee house (managed by the Hinckley Coffee and Cocoa House Co.) over a quarter of a century ago, and has since been a director of the concern. In creed Mr. Garner was a staunch churchman, and was a constant worshipper at the Parish Church of Holy Trinity. It may be mentioned that in connection with this place of worship he acted for many years as one of the wardens, besides being connected with other movements organised in connection with the church.

THE INQUEST

on the body was held at the Union Hotel on Monday. Elizabeth E. Garner was the first witness called. She said the deceased was her father and was about 61 years of age. She identified the body. Deceased was a carpenter and builder, and died on Sunday afternoon. Deceased seemed quite as well as usual. After tea on Sunday he went into the front room and sat down on a chair. Witness was in the same room with him. About half-past five she noticed deceased to turn very pale; he gave two or three deep sighs, and then lay back in the chair. Witness went to him at once. She did not think he was dead then, as he was breathing a little. They sent for Dr. Hall immediately, but before the doctor arrived her father was dead. Deceased had never been poorly and she was not aware that he had ever suffered from his heart, as he had not complained of it. He had not been seen by a doctor for the last two years. Deceased had worked a little of late; he had been doing a bit of painting, but witness did not think he had been working harder than usual.

Dr. Hall stated that he saw deceased a short time ago, and he then appeared well. The cause of death was syncope.

The bride was given away by her brother, Mr. T. Garner, and Mr. Weaver was attended by his brother, Mr. J. T. Weaver, as best man. A very pretty scene was witnessed after the bride and bridegroom left the vestry, when Master Boyd Weaver and Miss Gladys Garner, who were dressed in white, went in front of the newly-married couple and threw flowers in their path, while outside the Church they were received with showers of confetti.

The ceremony was witnessed by a great many friends, the Church being nearly full. Amongst those present were noticed Mr. and Mrs. Willoughby Garner and Miss Margery Garner, Mrs. T.

Although a resident in the town for but eight years, Mrs. Weaver had won the esteem of all whom she had met and as an earnest worker in the affairs of the Church of All Saints', where her husband is Vicar's Warden, she achieved a very wide measure of respect. She also interested hereself in other purposeful work such as the Bromsgrove Nursing Association and the British Womens Temperance Association, and in all she undertook thoroughness and sympathetic nature won for her a well deserved popularity.

36 - Email from Alan Eatwell
Author: Alan Eatwell - Grandson of Gladys Garner

In 1997 a man named Alan Eatwell sent me an e-mail regarding his

Garner ancestors. Here is what he had to say:

"My grandmother was Gladys Esther Garner (1896-1978). Her father was

Thomas Garner (1864-1934) and married Barbara Green in 1889. He was

born in Burbage. The family then moved to Hinckley (2 miles away).

Thomas' father was John Garner (b. 1839) who married Esther Bailey in

1862. His father was Timothy Garner, who married Mary Leigh.

It may interest you that my great uncle John Bailey Garner was a major

in the Royal Leicestershire Regiment and my g great uncle Willoughby

Garner was the Colonel of the Regiment around the beginning of WW1.

My family still live in Burbage." - Alan Eatwell
