Mining at Lemcon Manor Wm.H

Insolvent Debtor Wm.H

One of the descendants of Sir William Hull of Leamcon, was a WILLIAM HENRY HULL. I don’t have a d.o.b. but he was of Leamcon. His parents were Richard Edward Hull 1785-1846 and Henrietta Becher. His sister Maria Henrietta Amelia Hull marr. James Hingston, and other sister Lucinda Jane Elizabeth Hull marr. John Richard Hedges Becher.

William Henry Hull marr. Lucinda Hingston 31 Jan 1852 in Magourney Co.Cork. They had at least three children – Richard Edward Hull c1855; Henrietta Anna Hull c1859 and Lucinda M. Hull c1862, all b. Schull.
I have read that WHH died in 1865 in Southampton, Hants, but have not managed to verify this. His wife is shown on English census for 1871, 1891 and 1901 as widow.
The reason I wanted to tell you about this fellow is because I found a couple of news articles about him which I thought you would be interested in…..see attached.
It seems that William Henry Hull went from an affluent landowner at Leamcon in 1861, to an insolvent debtor in 1864. I wonder what happened to him in between? I see that in 1864 he was living in Lucan. Did he go to gaol I wonder? If he died in 1865, what prompted them to go to England? They were in Worthing Sussex in 1871; Christchurch Hants in 1891 and Chelmsine Somerset in 1901. Maybe his widow and children were back in Ireland in 1881 as they are not on the English census that year. His wife Lucinda died in Exeter in 1907. His son Richard Edward Hull never married. He lived in Exminster, Devon on 1911 census, described as ‘an Irish landlord’. I did not trace a death in England for him.
It seems the mining boom in Ireland around that time made some people rich and some people poor.
