Some Monumental Inscriptions of St Botolph's Church, Northfleet
Noted by T.C. Colyer-Fergusson 1900+
Kindly typed up for the website by Pat
T.C. Colyer-Fergusson was a
contemporary of Leland L. Duncan, both served on the Council of the K.A.S.
together. He recorded the M.I.s of St Botolph's Church, Northfleet and wrote
them up in longhand in a white skinned book of some 290 pages, which is now in
the C.K.S., Maidstone. We are indebted to Stuart Bligh, County Archivist for
permission to copy the M.I. listings. Colyer-Fergusson divided the listings,
starting the numbering afresh in each section. The whole listing has been
re-numbered for indexing purposes. He also took a number of pictures of
gravestones which he pasted into the book. The graveyard was mostly cleared of
stones in the 1960's although some survive.

Newpaper Article: Death of Mrs Keats.
Rosherville Lady Centenarian.
Mrs Matilda Keats, widow of a former vicar of Northfleet, passed away at her
residence, 7 Lansdowne-square, Rosherville, on Monday, in her 103rd year.
Mrs Keats, who celebrated her 102nd birthday on Sunday week, was a remarkable
lady. Physically she was, as it were, in perfect health up to the time of her
death, and simply faded away in her sleep, and mentally she was equally as sound
to the last. Her mental freshness, indeed, was quite exceptional, having regard
to her years, for to the last her memory of near events was equally as vivid as
those of the long ago. Especially for matters military – induced, no doubt, by
her close relationship with distinguished military figures – she had a
wonderfully retentive memory, and the manner in which she was accustomed to
recite reminiscences made her a most engaging personality.
Born just six days after the battle of Trafalgar, the days of her childhood were
critical times in the world’s history, and to her friends there was nothing
more interesting than to hear her discant on epoch-making events of the last
century. She well remembered as a child her cousin, Capt. KELLY, return to
Tilbury after the battle of Waterloo, with his charger. Capt. Kelly, of the 1st
Life Guards, served with distinction in that famous conflict, and was promoted
to the rank of major for gallant conduct. Mrs Keats was born in Ireland, and was
the daughter of Major-General Thomas Kelly, K.C., who for nearly 50 years was
commandant at Tilbury Fort and Gravesend. He was a fine type of the old military
figure, and his personality is still recalled by many of the older residents of
the borough of Gravesend. Mrs Keats was virtually a resident of this locality
the whole of her long life. Her husband was the Rev. Richard Keats, vicar of
Northfleet, who died in 1858. There was no issue of the marriage. After his
demise she took up residence at 7, Lansdowne-square in 1863, and lived a quiet,
retired life there for 44 years. The last hat which her husband wore to this day
finds a place on the peg in the hall! Her elder brother was General Kelly, C.B.
who served in the Scuide war under Sir Chas. NAPIER.
The funeral will take place this (Friday) afternoon at Northfleet Churchyard at
two o’clock, the remains being laid to rest near those of her late husband.

301. [CCXXI]. Inscription in Russian. The following was found loose at
the end of the volume.
Translation: "Repose, dear brother until the gladsome
morning". Russian Imperial Service Volunteer Timothy IVANOV. This Memorial
was erected by his brother Lieutenant Alexander Ivanov in April 1813.
This Memorial was over the grave in Northfleet Churchyard on the N.
side of the Church. It was sought for by James BENSON of Gravesend and
discovered by him in 1945.The face of the stone was worn and covered in places
by lichen. The letters had to be felt for by the fingers, and a light coating of
chalk applied in order to show the incised letters. During the ensuing winter,
frost split the face of the stone and the inscription perished.
The man commemorated is said to have died as the result of an
explosion on a Russian ship being repaired in Pitchers Dockyard, Northfleet. His
brother was will be noted caused the stone to be erected nearly 12 years later.
The "day" may be an instruction to the sculptor to be filled in when
the erection took place with a numerical date. (In the Burial Register the
name appears mistakenly as M.F. JOANOFF).

wither and fade/But gain a good name by well doing my duty/It will scent like

During the greater part of his life The constant and confidential friends of Mr
HUGGENS at whose request he was interred here in the vault constructed for his
own burial place. In the vault beneath are deposited The mortal remains of John
HUGGENS Esqr late of Sittingbourne who died on the 11th of August 1865 in the
90th year of his age. In the year 1844 He founded and munificently endowed The
College in this Parish Which bears his name.
C-F Note: From The Gravesend Reporter, Oct. 1911. John Huggens. Founder
of Huggen’s College. The anniversary of the death of Mr John Huggens has just
passed. It is just forty-six years since that his remains were laid to rest at
Northfleet. Although he resided many years, if not the whole, of his life at
Sittingbourne, comparatively few of the present day inhabitants of that town
have any recollection of the little old gentleman who founded one of the
greatest benefactions to be met with in Kent. There are, of course, some who can
recall his face and form – some who can remember him, wearing a little black
skull cap, as he used to sit, Sunday after Sunday, in his pew in the old church,
during the vicariate of the Rev. Humphrey Thomas WALFORD. But amongst the
younger generations his name is not even known. It is at Northfleet that his
memory is perpetuated. There he built a magnificent College, which consists of
residences for ladies and gentlemen of reduced circumstances, and a chapel with
a beautiful and lofty spire. It has always been understood that he intended to
make Sittingbourne the venue of his benefaction, but changed his mind on being
thwarted in obtaining the land he desired for a site.
At the present time there are forty residents in Huggens’s
College, each of whom receives £4 every month, and there are in addition forty
out-pensioners who received £52 a year, paid quarterly. Northfleet consequently
almost rivals Winchester in being endowed with such a rich benefaction.
The College was opened on April 29th, 1847 (the 71st anniversary of
Mr Huggens’s birthday), when the founder made the following speech to the
first eight residents: "It is with no little emotion of pleasure,
gratitude, and thankfulness, that I rise to address you this day. This day will
be marked down in the journal of my life as a happy day, with letters so deeply
embedded, that time itself cannot rub them out. This day has opened the doors of
my little charity to you, and in opening the doors, I trust it has opened the
door of peace, quietude, and happiness to you in the evening of your life. This
day a captain in the Navy would enter in his log book of the voyage ‘This day
we have crossed the line’.
"May you, my dear friends, be enabled to write down in the log
book of your voyage through this life ‘This day we have crossed the line’.
And having crossed the line, have run our little barque away, far-away from the
troubled ocean of this life, leaving far, far behind us all the tempests and
angry billows of this world, and having run our little barque into the smooth
and tranquil waters of the summer evening of our life, may we sail on happily to
the end of the voyage here below; and at the last day of that voyage, may the
Great Captain of us all – may that Great Captain who governs the destinies of
us all – may He take the helm of your barque and steer it from this little
haven I have made for you here into the Heaven of Heavens, and there moor it for
ever. That this may be your destiny is the sincere wish, and is and ever will be
the fervent prayer of your friend and benefactor, John Huggens".
I may add that the Rev. Canon M.M. FFINCH, the devoted Chaplain of
the College – why, by the way, has been there nearly forty-two years – makes
it a practice (and an excellent practice it is - of giving a copy of Mr Huggens’s
address to each new resident. Thus they have the founder’s own welcome and are
able to realise what his wishes towards them were. Scores and scores of men and
women have had reason to bless the name of John Huggens.
Now that I am in a reminiscent mood, it may interest some of my
younger readers to learn something about the obsequies of the late Mr Huggens.
Such a display of the ‘trappings and suits of woe" is seldom seen
now-a-days. The hearse and horses were decorated with plumes, and there were
muses and feathermen and twenty pages. All the mourners, the clergy, the
churchwardens and the organist were provided with cloaks, silk hatbands, and
gloves. Conducting poles, feathers, wands, and staves were carried in the
procession. The ladies and gentlemen resident in the College were also, I
believe, furnished with rich silk bands and scarves. The cortege proceeded by
road from Sittingbourne to Northfleet, and church bells were tolled at
Sittingbourne, Newington, Rainham, Chatham, Rochester (Cathedral) and Strood, as
it passed through each parish. The funeral was quite a pageant, and is said (I
believe with truth) to have cost over £400. The director was the late Mr James
HULBURD, of the firm of Tonge and Hulburd of Sittingbourne, the predecessors of
the present firm of Hulburd and Son. There is a large monument to Mr Huggens’s
memory at Northfleet. The tomb erected by Mr Huggens in his lifetime tell into
decay, and was taken down in 1870. – "Chatham and Rochester

most flourishing days.
The above view is copied from a
lithographed picture kindly lent to us by Mr Plews HOWDEN, of Northfleet.
Following on our special article last week, we this week give on page two the
first instalment of a "History of Northfleet" (written by Mr A. BEST)
in which is a further reference to the Docks, with a list of the vessels that
were built there. The importance of the dockyard in its earlier years, is
further testified to in a publication dated 1840, where it is stated that at one
time it was contemplated to have formed a dock here for vessels of war similar
to the one at Antwerp, the excavations in the procuring of chalk, which have
been going on for some years, having formed a nucleus for such desideratum. We
are unable to trace the date of our illustration, but it certainly goes back
712. Newspaper cutting: A Northfleet Landmark. 17 Nov. 19?4.
Northfleet contractors are now
demolishing the conspicuous castellated office building of Bowaters’ Paper
Mills which originally gave Pitcher’s Shipbuilding Establishment the name of
Castle Dockyard. It was erected rather more than a century ago, the stones of
the Norman London Bridge being used very largely in its construction. Local
tradition has it that it was originally designed by William PITCHER, the son of
the founder of the Dockyard, for his lady-love but she declared that it was too
much like a prison and flatly refused to live in it; for many years afterwards
it was known as "Pitcher’s Folly".
