Story

Charles and Constance Hammond were two of many people who had very few connections with Heene, but whose final days were spent here.

Charles Hammond was born in 1841 in Brixton, the fifth child of Charles John and Katharine Hammond, both from Kent. They married in Kennington in 1831. Constance, was their fourth child, also born in Brixton. Charles Senior was a Coal Merchant in 1841, and a Coal Merchant and Managing Clerk by 1851, by which time he was father of 8 children, all living in Lambeth.

By 1861 Charles John was a West India Merchant (slavery was abolished in 1833, so it is unlikely that he was involved in this trade), and there were six children living at home, including both Charles Julius, a Clerk to a Stockbroker, and Constance, and 2 House Servants.

In 1866, in Stockwell, Charles married Ann Beach, daughter of Edward Beach (deceased) of Stockwell. Charles was then living at Ivy Lodge, Brixton Road, and was described as a Stock Dealer. His parents were both witnesses. Ann died in 1869.

In 1871, in Lee, Kent, were Charles John (West India Merchant) and Katharine, with Charles Julius, 29 year-old widower, Member of the Stock Exchange, and unmarried sisters Constance and Margaret Eliza, 25, plus a Cook and a Housemaid.

By 1881, still at Lee, were Charles John and Katharine with Charles Julius and Constance, plus a Cook and a Housemaid. Charles John died in 1890 in St Leonard’s on Sea, giving Probate to son Charles, leaving an estate of over £4000.

Charles Julius was now a Member of the Stock Exchange.

In 1891, Charles and Constance, with mother Katharine, had moved to live with sister Edith’s family. Edith was by now married to Henry Wood, (also from Brixton, and Private Secretary (to a Gentleman)), and living at Lisle Court Farm, Boldre, Hampshire with two Servants. Katharine died, in Haddon House, Shelley Road, in 1897, leaving an estate of over £6000, with Probate given to son Charles.

By 1901 Charles and Constance were living together at Sea View, Milton-on-Sea, Hampshire and moved to Sackville Gardens, Hove by 1911.

In 1921 Charles and Constance were living at Carisbrooke, Richmond Road, with 44-year-old Servant Agnes Jona Humphreys, from County Kerry.

Charles died in 1923 at Carisbrooke. He left over £4000 to Maurice Arthur Wood, Engineer, almost certainly his nephew..

After Charles’ death, Constance went back to live with sister Edith and family at Lisle Court Cottage, Boldre, Hampshire. She died in 1931 at Botolph’s Lodge Nursing Home, leaving effects of £10117.14s.2d
