203 "the name of Margerison was to live on in Kidderminster for some years because of a second marriage between the Green and Margerison families. Thomas Annie Green had a daughter, Edith Emily. In 1890 she married John Turton Westover who left her a widow in 1911. In early 1913 Edith married Joshua's son, George Margerison, who therefore followed his father to Kidderminster. At the time of the marriage George was 58. The couple were certainly living in fine style in 1916 at Hill Crest, a very large house set in expansive grounds on Bewdley Hill at the corner with Sutton Park Road.

"

"Mr. Lamplugh Wickham Wickham was for many years the principal managing partner of the Low Moor Works, and resided at Chestnut Grove, near Tadcaster. For the long space of half a century Mr. Lamplugh Wickham was actively engaged in connection with the works, and much of the success which attended the undertaking during that period was due to the ability and energy evinced by him. He was a magistrate and deputy-lieutenant of the West Riding ; and although he never attempted to make for himself a public career, he was associated with many prominent public movements, and both as a country gentleman and a man of business has earned an honoured name. He died on January 2nd, 1883. A fountain has been erected to his memory at Low Moor, and a stained glass window in St. Mary's Church, Boston Spa, both memorials being contributed by the Low Moor workpeople

Mrs Herbert Duckworth (1846\endash 1895) [see Stephen, Juli
a Prinsep], his Hyde Park Gate neighbour, was soon provin
g to be of greater interest to him than in his sorrowful wi
thdrawal he could ever have anticipated. Her husband, whom she had married in 1867, had died very suddenly in September 1870, leaving her with three infants, the youngest of them born barely six weeks after his father's death. The marriage had been intensely happy, and in her own sorrow Julia Duckworth had thrown herself rather compulsively into giving nursing assistance within her own extended family. Her mother was one of the Pattles, an Anglo-Indian family with seven sisters famous for their beauty. Their large cousinhood included the Prinseps at Little Holland House, with many connections in literary and artistic circles. Burne-Jones in 1878 had sought out Julia Duckworth as a model Virgin for an intended picture of the annunciation.

Proximity and bereavement soon turned Stephen's shy neighbourly friendship into affection. Mrs Duckworth's tragedy had in many ways been even greater than his own. He declared his love to her early in February 1877, but she told him that she was ill prepared for such an approach and could only enjoin him to continue in friendship. This they sustained in a vigorous correspondence until, on 5 January 1878, she consented to become his wife. They were married on 26 March that year, spending the honeymoon with their families at Eastnor Castle, lent to them by Julia Stephen's kinsman Lord Somers. Laura Stephen now joined a Kensington nursery of three Duckworth children: George Herbert (1868\endash 1934), Stella (1869\endash 1897), and Gerald L'Etang (1870\endash 1937). There were in due course four children of the second marriage: Vanessa (1879\endash 1961) [see Bell, Vanessa], Julian Thoby (1880\endash 1906), (Adeline) Virginia (1882\endash 1941) [see Woolf, (Adeline) Virginia], and Adrian Leslie (1883\endash 1948). The Stephens moved into the Duckworth house at 13 Hyde Park Gate South (redesignated 22 Hyde Park Gate in 1884), which was much augmented with a large study and additional nursery accommodation.

"In 1814 Babbage married Georgiana Whitmore, from a landow
ning Shropshire family. Her half brother, Wolryche Whitmore
, was the MP who rose year after year in the House of Commo
ns to move the repeal of the Corn Laws. He was also a leading member of the Political Economy Club, and played an important part in Babbage's life. For twenty five years Charles Babbage was a leading figure in London society, and his glorious Saturday evening soir?es, attended by two or three hundred people, were a meeting place for Europe's liberal intelligencia."

"In 1814, age 23, Charles married 22-year-old Georgina Whitmore. Georgina would have eight children in thirteen years, of which only three sons would survive to maturity. Babbage really took no interest in raising his children. After Georgina died at the age of 35, his mother took over the upbringing."

"Dudmaston Hall, near Quatt in Shropshire was the home of Georgiana Whitmore. The house is now owned by the National Trust and has a noted garden, where the Babbages courted and later often returned, though Georgiana died young in 1827."

" It is often suggested that Ada was the world's first prog
rammer. This is nonsense: Babbage was, if programmer is th
e right term. After Babbage came a mathematical assistant o
f his, Babbage's eldest son, Herschel, and possibly Babbage's two younger sons. Ada was probably the fourth, fifth or six person to write the programmes. Moreover all she did was rework some calculations Babbage had carried out years earlier. Ada's calculations were student exercises. Ada Lovelace figures in the history of the Calculating Engines as Babbage's interpretress, his fairy lady'. As such her achievement was remarkable."

By the will of the testator's daughter, Elizabeth Lamplugh of Lamplugh, who had married George Irton of Irton Hall and who died childless in in 1775, the house and certain of the estates of Dovenby Hall, which she had either inherited or purchased, also came to him for his life. At his death in 1783 the manor and estates of Lamplugh, which were his absolutely, were occupied by his nephew John Raper, who had married Katherine Wooley. On the other hand, by the will of Elizabeth Irton, the house and lands of Dovenby, when he died childless, passed to Peter Brougham, a descendant of a female member of the 2nd Lamplughs of Dovenby (see Section V) and thus to his sister Mary Brougham, who brought these possessions to the family of Dykes."

St. Cuthbert's or Bilton Street School, Layerthorpe, was bu
ilt in 1831. There were a schoolroom and a classroom with a
ccommodation for 150 boys. The premises belonged to Revd. Jocelyn Willey who provided financial support for the school. In 1836 there were 220 boys aged 5 to 15 years attending. The first annual government grant was received in 1849. By 1850 there were 166 children in average attendance of whom one-third were under 7 years; there were 8 classes taught on the monitorial system.
A school for girls, which was probably chiefly a Sunday school at first, was opened by Mrs Willey in 1826 in a building on the east side of Layerthorpe (the street of that name). A department for girls and infants, which probably replaced the Layerthorpe School, was opened in 1859 in Redeness Street close to the boys' school and under the same management. Jocelyn Willey retained his interest in the school until his death in 1863 and subsequently Lady Wheler, his widow, endowed the school with an annual sum of ?25.
