SOME NOTES ON THE SOCIETY'S HISTORY

These notes, originally written by Mr. H.B. Vaisey, K.C., in 1936, were revised and brought up to date by him and Mr. David Stephens in 1952.

THE Society's Records are extremely voluminous, but if the writer of a proper History of the Society should ever be found (which may be doubted), he would at the outset be confronted with the problem of choosing his " point of view." Ought his attention to be chiefly directed to the mass of information to be found in the documents relating to the life of the City of London from the dawn of the 18th century onwards? Or ought the matter to be regarded as one primarily affecting Cirencester and its townsmen ? Again, how far would it be right for him to digress into genealogical questions, or to give biographical details about the individual members ? Would further researches throw any fresh light on what are, on the now available materials, the wholly incomprehensible proceedings in the Society's protracted Chancery suit of " Attorney General and others versus Gosling and others " ?

* * * *

Much of what appears in these paragraphs has been seen in print before; notably in the columns of the Wilts and Gloucestershire Standard, which has for many years regularly chronicled the Society's proceedings, and has also from time to time drawn the attention of its readers to points of interest connected with the Society in its various aspects. In 1905 an article on the subject of the Society, by the late Mr. E. B. Haygarth, was printed in the Cirencester Parish Magazine. To these sources of information acknowledgements of indebtedness are due; likewise to the industry of the late Mr. E. C. Sewell, who at the time of what was described as the Bicentenary-Meeting in 1899 extracted some interesting and amusing items from the Records.

The age of the Society is uncertain. The earliest account book contains an obscure allusion to the " 2nd Feb. 1692," from which it may probably be inferred that the Society was in existence on that date. From 1701 its Records are complete, and they begin in that year as the Records of an institution already firmly established. The original name of " The Cirencester Society" was enlarged comparatively recently by adding- to it the words " in London." It is remarkable that throughout the Records the name of " Cirencester " is invariably written at length, in whatever manner it may have been pronounced, although many other words are found in abbreviated forms according to the fashion of former times.

The objects and purposes of the Society have always been two in number. First, the promotion of harmony, good fellowship, and conviviality among Cirencester men living in London; and second, the apprenticing of poor Cirencester boys to useful handicraft trades. To secure these laudable aims it has been the custom of the Society from time to time to formulate elaborate rules and regulations, and the books contain a bewildering succession of Codes, each being obviously intended to be permanent, and each in turn being observed or disregarded by the members in accordance with what might happen to be their wishes and inclinations at the moment.

* * * *

In contrast to that other ancient institution of Cirencester, the Bull Club, which has undoubted Jacobite and Tory traditions, the Cirencester Society in London (though now strictly non-political) had a decidedly Whiggish complexion. It has been noted by previous investigators that at its meeting in 1788 it passed an enthusiastically expressed resolution commemorating " the Great Jubilee Year of One Century since the Glorious Revolution." The bill for the dinner on that occasion is printed further on in this book.

* * *

There has been a great absence of uniformity in the proceedings and practice of the Society. Thus its meetings were originally monthly, with an annual dinner; at other times there were quarterly meetings, and in some years we have a ' summer meeting " and an " annual meeting " recorded. The methods of paying for the dinner have been repeatedly varied—originally this was the duty and privilege of the Stewards, and we find that in 1723 they were allowed 10/- per quarter out of the interest arising from the invested voluntary contributions, an arrangement which (as is recorded in the very next year) " did not answer"! The allowance was then increased to £3 per annum, and it was at the same time noted that the " levy " of 2/6 for the annual dinner was considered to be excessive, and a " discouragement" to attendance at the annual meetings.

The mystery which surrounds the Society's Chancery suit has already been mentioned, but even these brief notes would be incomplete without some further allusion to it. Shortly, the matter appears to stand as follows. John Edmonds, a member of the Society, who died on the 30th January, 1708/9, had, by his Will, given certain property to the Society upon trust to pay the fees for apprenticing boys in three named parishes, of which Cirencester was one. These gifts were to take effect after the death of the survivor of certain of the Testator's relatives, an event which probably happened in 1732, for in that year the Suit was instituted " on the relation of " the Society's own trustees. In other words, the Society was in the position of plaintiff, and so in control of the proceedings, and the records refer to the voting of considerable sums of money for the purpose of carrying on the litigation. Moreover, the early books of the Society are marked as having been put in evidence in the suit as " exhibits," and for two years the proceedings (the object of which must necessarily have been to secure the achievement of the aims of the Testator's bounty), appear to have taken their normal course. What possible explanation can there be for the extraordinary circumstance that in 1734-the suit was ordered to "stand over generally," and the still more amazing fact that for the next 140 years the other two parishes monopolised the funds upon the ground (apparently) that the Cirencester Society was supposed to have ceased to exist? This supposition was, as we know, unfounded, but even if the case had been otherwise, what possible reason could it have afforded for the exclusion of Cirencester from the benefits of the trust? Under the terms of the Will, all three parishes stood on exactly the same footing, and the want of a trustee even in those days would not have vitiated the gift, the principle that the Court will supply the deficiency being then firmly established, as appears from a reported case decided in that same year 1732. No solution of the problem has been found. Were some of the early records of the Society which were put in evidence in support of its claims forgeries, and was the suit hastily abandoned for fear that the fraud might be discovered? This may be regarded as a fantastic suggestion, but for want of a rival theory may be considered as affording a possible clue to the mystery. To obtain transcripts of the proceedings in the suit would be very expensive, and they might not, after all, throw any further light on the matter. Its happy conclusion is due to the energies of those who in 1875 asserted successfully the just claims of the Society and of Cirencester, and the Scheme by which the bounty of John Edmonds to his native town is at present regulated is printed in this book for the information of the members of the Society. It is hardly necessary to say that the Charitable funds representing John Edmonds' bequest are kept wholly separate from the Society's own small investments, which can be freely used for its own purposes.

* * *

To have been born at Cirencester, and to be residing in London, were, until about 60 years ago, the necessary qualifications for membership of the Society. An exception was made in the case of certain local dignitaries. Thus, at a meeting held on the 3rd January, 1703, the Minutes show that:—

" Allen Bathurst Esq. generously offering to be
" of this Society, and they taking the same into
" Consideration doe unanimously admitt him into
" the same although he was not born att Ciren-
" cester, but being Lord of the Manor of that
" Borough he is thereby so nearly Related to
" this Society that they conclude themselves
" engaged to Receive him into it, yett not so as
" to make the same a President."

And in 1718 " Benj. Bathurst Esq." was similarly admitted, " in consideration he is one of the Representatives in Parliament for the Burrough of Cirencester," repeating the proviso that the concession was not to create a precedent.

* * * *

The Lord of the Manor, and the two Members for the Borough were, however, always afterwards regarded as unquestionably eligible for membership, and in 1872 it was resolved that the Vicar of Cirencester for the time being should also be eligible, " subject to the usual condition of his first dining with the Society."

* * * *

The lack of travelling facilities between London and Cirencester made these places in old days remote from each other to a degree which is not easy to realise to-day. It would have been difficult for our forefathers to understand how a resident of Cirencester could properly belong to a Society holding its meetings in London. No inconsistency in this respect can be felt at the present time, and it has now for many years been held to be sufficient if a candidate for membership has dined with the Society at one of its annual meetings in London, and can show his association with Cirencester either by birth, or by descent, or by residence, or by having in some way deserved well of the ancient town.

* * * *

The Society, after prolonged discussions, established in 1934 its present Code of Rules, being those printed in this book. It is confidently claimed that they are an improvement on those which have preceded them, but it remains to be seen whether the Society's time-honoured custom of disregarding its own regulations, when it thinks fit to do so, will ever be allowed to lapse altogether.

* * * *

Originally the Society seems to have met at the Castle Inn, in Wood Street, but it is only from the year 1744 that a list of the actual places at which the annual meetings were held can be given. It is as follows:

1744 to 1746.—The White Lion, Cornhill.
1747 to 1783.—The Queen's Arms Tavern, St. Paul's Churchyard.
1784 to 1800, and 1802—Paul's Head Tavern, Cateaton Street.
1801.—New London Tavern, Cheapside.
1803, 1804, 1815, 1816, and 1818.—King's Head, Poultry.
1805 to 1812.—New Exchange Coffee House, Strand.
1813 and 1814.—The Three Cranes, Queen Street, Cheapside.
1823 to 1867.—Queen's Arms, Newgate Street. .
1868.—Cathedral Hotel, St. Paul's Churchyard
1869 to 1876.—Guildhall Coffee House, Gresham Street.
1877 to 1879.—New City Club, George Yard, Lombard Street.
1880 to 1883, and 1885 to 1894.—Ship and 'Turtle, Leadenhall Street.
1884, 1899, 1902, and 1906.—Dyers Hall, Dowgate Hill.
1895 to 1898, 1900 to 1905, and 1907 to 1909.— Holborn Restaurant, Holborn.
1910 to 1914, and 1921.—Cafe Royal, Regent Street.
1920.—Connaught Rooms, Great Queen Street.
1922, 1926, 1927, and 1928.—Criterion Restaurant, Piccadilly Circus.
1924 and 1925.—Constitutional Club, Northumberland Avenue. 1929.—Savoy Hotel, Strand.
1930 and 1931.—Hotel Metropole, Northumberland Avenue.
1932 to 1936, 1938, and 1939.—Hotel Splendide, Piccadilly.
1947 to 1952.—Charing Cross Hotel, Strand.
Four Lists are subjoined to these Notes. On the first of them little comment need be made. It may be observed that the Treasurer's office has been held by thirteen persons over the period of 250 years for which the Records are complete, the longest tenure being that of Mr. Flux, whose 48 years exceeded by 5 the previous " top score " of Mr. Freame.

* * * *

The second list, that of the Members, is believed to be a complete and accurate list of those who have belonged to the Society from 1701 down to 1952. The date prefixed to each name is that of the election to membership, or of its first appearance in the Records as the name of a member. The compilation of the list has, however, involved a few problems which may not always have been solved correctly. Thus, it is not always certain whether a variation in the spelling of a name does or does not indicate a different person. Again, in one or two cases a single name in the list may perhaps stand for two persons, probably father and son. In one instance, an election was forgotten, and the successful candidate, after a lapse of eight or nine years, was proposed de novo and elected a second time! In yet another case, the Minutes state that an election was " presumed," the person in question having for several years past been admitted as a member to the Society's meetings, although no actual record of his election to membership could be found.

* * * *

Before 1876 it would seem that the Society's twofold qualification for membership, viz., birth at Cirencester and residence in London, was strictly observed, except in the case of the before-mentioned local dignitaries. Subsequently, membership has been accorded to many persons lacking one, and sometimes both, of the old requirements, but it may be assumed that those who belonged to the Society before 1876 were, with very few exceptions, born at Cirencester, and at the time of their election actually living in London.

* * * *

The total number of the members of the Society from the dawn of its history to the present time is, as nearly as can be made out, 510. The name which appears most frequently in the list is CRIPPS, whose " score " of 20 overtops that of BATHURST by 3! Students of " fashions " in Christian names may be interested to note that of the 261 persons who were members before 1876 no fewer than 45 bore the name of John, the names next occurring in frequency being William (39), Thomas (24), Richard (17), James (16), Robert (15), and Edward (14). With a George upon the throne of England for more than half of the period covered by these statistics, it is perhaps surprising how seldom that name occurs. It can hardly be accounted for by any Jacobite proclivities on the part of our ancestors, or why is the name of Charles so rarely found?

* * * *

The third list is that of the Cirencester boys whom the Records show to have been apprenticed, under the Society's auspices, down to the year 1850. It is un-doubtedly incomplete, but it contains every available relevant detail of the apprenticeships from the first which is recorded, namely, that of Robert Morse in the year 1702. An asterisk (*) denotes that the original " Indentures " are in the Society's possession; the letter " C " stands, of course, for Cirencester, and those cases in which the apprentice ultimately became a member of the Society are indicated by the addition of the letter "M," followed by the date of his election to membership. There appear to have been frequent exceptions to the Society's rule that every boy " put out" must be a. native of Cirencester, and the master a Freeman of the City of London. The particulars given have been collected from various documents. Some of the apprenticeships are fuly proved by the actual Indentures, by the entries in the Minute Books, and by the payment of the premiums appearing in the accounts. In other cases we have to rely upon only two, and in a few upon only one, of these sources of information. The earliest apprenticeships (1702-1731), are recorded in a separate book, which shows some traces of having been compiled from memory. The Indentures of Stephen Knipe, apprenticed on the 21st June, 1711, to Robert lies, are the earliest of those which remain in existence.

* * * *

The fourth list contains the names of the present (1952) members of the Society with their addresses.

* * * *

One or two points of interest in relation to the apprentices may be noted. In 1778 there is a Minute protesting against the selection of any Trade " such as a Butcher or a Barber, etc., that is not Handy Craft Trades," and also recording that " some that has been Put to proper Handy Craft Trades as Proved but very indifferent Surcumstances and failed in their Trade"; and a more rigorous scrutiny into the characters of would-be apprentices was recommended, in order that the " Meening " of the Society might be " answered." One apprentice is reported to the Society by his master for not coming to his work as soon as he ought, and taking too much time at his meals; while of another his master says, " I am sure he can earn more money than he does, there is plenty of work for him." Generally, however, the apprentices would seem to have done credit to the Society, and several of them appear subsequently as " masters." Subsequently to 1850, the practice of including the apprenticing of girls (mostly to the trade of dressmaking) began, and this is now permitted by the Scheme.

* * * *

There were very few apprentices " put out " between the years 1809 and 1829, and there is no record of any meeting of the Society in 1817, 1819, 1820, 1821, or 1822. Indeed at this period the Society seems to have been in some peril of extinction, and, although the accounts continued to be regularly kept, the convivial instincts of the Cirencester men in London must have either been at a low ebb or else have been temporarily diverted into other channels. No meetings were held in the years 1915 to 1919, and 1940 to 1946.

Donations have from time to time been made by the Society out of its funds to various causes in Cirencester. Thus in 1895 fifty guineas was voted for the " purchase and hanging of a fire-bell in Cirencester Church Tower " and " to supplement the ancient peal." This bell is said to be inscribed with the Society's name. In 1903 the sum of £50 was voted towards the West Market Place improvements, and in 1908 a similar sum was given to the Town Hall Restoration Fund. There were also gifts to the War Memorial Annexe at the Hospital, and for the gilding of the faces of the Parish Church clock.
