Lucy Ann Fuller

"Among many fine gifts Lucy Anne Ince gave to the church [St. James Christleton, Cheshire] is the pulpit in memory of her husband, Townsend Ince who had died in 1871."
"Another link with Christleton was created when Townsend Ince from Christleton Hall married Mary Currie but when Mary died suddenly aged 25yrs, he married Lucy Anne Ince who is commemorated in the next window. This shows "Jesus being arrested", and is one of two windows in church, in memory of Lucy Anne Ince who died in 1903 aged 93 years."
"The second window which shows St John the Apostle, the Holy Mother & child and St Luke, is in memory of Lucy Anne Ince."

Obituary from "The Chester Chronicle” May 1903.
Death of Mrs Townsend Ince - Died May 2nd 1903.

We deeply regret to record the
death of Mrs Townsend Ince, which
occurred on Saturday evening at
her residence Christleton Hall.
The deceased lady was born on
January 11th 1811 and had thus
reached the advanced age of 92,
but she was in full possession of her
faculties, and took an active part in
the management of her affairs up
to the very end. She succumbed
to an attack of pneumonia. Mrs
Ince was a daughter of the late
Mr Augustus Elliott Fuller, of Rose
Hill Sussex, who died in 1857, and
Clara, his wife, the eldest daughter
of Mr Owen Putland Meyrick, of
Bodorgan. In 1840 the deceased
was married to Mr Townsend Ince,
D.L., of Christleton, who died on
June 10th, 1871. There was no
issue of the marriage.
Mrs Ince, it will be seen, lived during
the reigns of five monarchs of this
realm, viz., George III & IV., William
IV., Victoria and Edward VII. She
was present at the Coronation of
William IV and Queen Victoria, and
always evinced a strong attachment
to the Throne and members of the
Royal Family. At the opening of
the Menai Suspension Bridge in
1826 she was an occupant of the
first carriage following the one
conveying the Royal party, and had
the distinction of paying the first toll
for crossing the bridge- the Royal
party being of course exempt. It is
rather remarkable that she was the
last person to pay toll immediately
precedent to the freeing of the
Grosvenor Bridge in Chester.
By the death of Mrs Ince many
charitable and philanthropic
organisations, both national and
local, lose a steadfast and constant
supporter. In Christleton the loss will
be keenly felt. Quiet, unobtrusive
and deeply sympathetic, she was
ever ready to tender assistance
where such was needed, and thus
endeared herself to the hearts of
all. Each Christmas, for a long
series of years, it was her custom
to make presents of bundles of
clothing, etc., to some eighty or
ninety families of deserving poor,
irrespective of creed or anything
else. To Christleton Institutions church,
schools, institute, friendly
society, clothing club- she was
always a generous and willing
supporter. When the Parish
Church was restored she was one
of the largest supporters of the
restoration fund, and placed the
beautiful pulpit in it as a memorial
of her late husband, and paid for
the re-hanging of the bells. Many
of her acts of kindness are known
only to the recipients, for she was
one of those delighted to do good
by stealth. The Union Jack was
flown at half mast high from the
church tower on Sunday, and after
the evening service the organist
(Mr Brewer) played “The Dead
March” The deceased’s executors
are her great nephew, Sir George
Jervis Meyrick, Bart, of Bodorgan,
Anglesey, and Christ Church,
Hants, and Mr W Carstairs Jones.
The funeral will take place tomorrow
(Thursday) at Christleton
Church, at 11.30. It is requested
that no flowers be sent.
Note.
Lucy Anne Townsend Ince is
commemorated at St James’ in
two stain glass windows, by the
Victorian artist Charles Kempe.
One is situated on the south aisle,
and the other on the north side,
adjacent to a small plaque which
also describes her contribution to
the church. As mentioned above,
the Oak Pulpit at St James’
is dedicated to her husband
Townsend.

Egypt Centre of Canolfan Eifftaidd : W1982
A Third Intermediate Period coffin from Thebes donated by the Royal Exeter Memorial Museum.
The name on our coffin is that of Iw-s-m-hes.t-mwt. We would be very grateful for any information regarding this lady. We know of a shabti which seems to have belonged to her (Glenn Janes 2002. Shabtis a Private View, 64-65). A shabti in the British Museum (EA 33966) also seems to have been one owned by our singer. Additionally a papyrus in the Brooklyn Museum (37.1801 E) also belongs to this lady and deals with the seventeenth chapter of the Book of the Dead.
This coffin was presented to Exeter Museum by the Rev. Robert Fitzherbert Fuller in 1819. Fitzherbert Fuller was a relative of the infamous ‘Mad Jack Fuller’ who had himself buried under a pyramid at Brightling, Sussex . The Reverend was also distantly related to Sir Francis Drake.
Rev. Robert Fitzherbert Fuller was born on 11 Aug 1794 in East Grinstead, Sussex . He was ordained a priest at Brase Nose College, Oxford in 1819 and was rector of St Bartholomew's, Chalvington from 1833 to 1848. On 16th October 1827 he married Maria Ursula Sheffield. He died on 22 Aug 1849 in Leamington, Warwick .
Little is known about how the coffin came to be in the possession of Rev. Fuller. As Niwinski (1988, 21) states: ‘in the first two decades of the 19th century the fashion for collecting ancient Egyptian monuments reached its apogee” with many coffins in Thebes being sold to collectors. In those days the removal of Egyptian artefacts from Egypt was virtually unrestricted. It is likely that the Rev. Fuller, like other gentlemen of his day, purchased this coffin on a trip. Robert Morkot of Exeter University has made study of the coffin’s history and believes that Rev. Fuller visited Egypt with Sir Joseph Stratton and Captain Bennett in 1817. There Giovanni Belzoni opened a ‘mummy pit’ for them. It is noticeable that he donated the coffin to Exeter Museum the same year as he was ordained a priest.
