Clovelly Sufferers

Extracts from Trewman's Exeter Flying Post

Transcribed by Brian Randell

[The great storm of 1821 led to thirty-one fishermen from Clovelly and its neighbourhood losing their lives. According to the account, from an 1911 Church magazine, reprinted in Down a Cobbled Street: The Story of Clovelly (Sheila Ellis, 1987), eleven were from Clovelly parish. Their names (and those of their wives, and the number of children) were given as follows: Thomas Beer (Joanna, 6), Wm. Colwill (Mary, 1), Jonathan Jewell (Mary, 5), Th. White (Grace), Wm. Fulford (Elizabeth, 4), John Waters (Mary, 8), James Branton (Mary, 3), Thomas Burman, John Mill, Henry Madge, and Wm. Braund.

MELANCHOLY CATASTROPHE:- About sixty boats, employed in the herring fishery at Clovelly, were on Thursday evening, by the suddenness of a gale of wind, obliged to relinquish their nets, in the hopes of gaining the shore in safety, but unfortunately more than forty were driven among the rocks. The cries of the drowning, thirty-five in number, most of whom left large families, produced an effect too heart-rending to be adequately expressed. The distress occasioned to the families of the unhappy sufferers, who looked forward to the fishery for their entire support, but now, alas, bereft of the means of subsistence, is most afflicting.- The Rev. Mr. Putt and Rev. Mr. Luxmore, then staying at Clovelly, were particularly instrumental in saving the lives of many who but for their humane exertions must have inevitably perished; and at their departure generously left £5 to be distributed among those families who are now become utterly destitute.

A meeting was held at the Guildhall, in Barnstaple, on Friday last, for the purpose of raising a subscription for the relief of the unfortunate sufferers at Clovelly and the neighbourhood. It was most respectably attended by the inhabitants of the town and its vicinity, and a liberal subscription was entered into. Before the close of the day nearly £200 was subscribed.

18 Oct 1821, Issue 2925

Our worthy Chief Magistrate has appointed a meeting to be held at the Guildhall tomorrow, Thursday, at twelve o'clock, for the humane purpose of entering into a subscription for the numerous and distressed sufferers at Clovelly, by the tremendous gale on the night of Thursday the 4th instant, when thirty-one pilots and fishermen belonging to that harbour were unfortunately drowned, leaving nineteen widows and sixty-one children totally destitute of the means of support.

Widows and Orphans at Clovelly

A meeting was held at the Guildhall of this City on Thursday last, for the purpose of opening a Subscription for the Relief of the destitute Widows and Orphans of the Clovelly Fishermen, who lost their lives and property by the late storm. The Mayor, being called to the Chair, briefly stated the object of the Meeting, and read the Bideford Resolutions and the names of their Committee.

Sir Thomas Acland said, in proposing the resolutions he held in his hand it was unnecessary to trouble the meeting at any length, as the basis on which it was formed had been so clearly explained from the chair. Proof of the calamity was unfortunately too notorious; and the names of the Bideford Committee were a sufficient guarantee that their subscriptions would be well applied. With regard to the present meeting, he thanked the Mayor for his readiness in calling it; and though it was not very numerously attended from the shortness of the notice, it was a beginning, and he had no doubt the County at large would take up the subject, for it was one of those cases which peculiarly appealed to the County at large; attention had been promptly given to it in the North of Devon, and he was persuaded other parts of the county would follow their example. It was not that a boat had been run down at a boat race, or a vessel had been stranded at the bar; but that a number of a most useful class of men, in the exercise of their occupation, which provided food for their poor neighbours, had lost their lives, and left their wives and children destitute. In conclusion, the worthy Baronet moved resolutions which we have inserted in the last page of our paper.

E.P. Lyon, Esq., in seconding the Resolutions moved by the worthy Baronet, began by observing that they could not be placed in better hands, as the mover was deeply interested in the welfare of that part of the county in which this great calamity had happened; and as he was also closely connected with the county as one of its Representatives. He was confident that, if the other Member for Devon had been present, or if he had known of the object of this Meeting, which was necessarily called at a very short notice, he would have cordially and zealously co-operated in its benevolent purpose. He stated that the kingdom had manifested, on various occasions, its readiness to relieve foreigners in distress, and he referred to the liberal contributions made to the inhabitants of Lisbon, who had suffered severely from an earthquake; to the recent existence of a subscription for the relief of the Swiss Colonists who had emigrated to the Brazils; and to the liberal and munificent spirit which was displayed in many parts of England, and particularly in this county, when the widows and children of the heroes who fell at Waterloo, required the aid of the charitable and benevolent.- He could not refrain from observing that this county was the most deservedly distinguished for its well-directed and charitable Public Institutions.- Its Hospitals for the relief and cure of diseases were the subject of general and just admiration, and excellent Asylums were provided, for the purpose of administering medicine to the mind, and to reform the dissolute. He observed that it was not his wish to restrain the operations of charity, nor to confine it to within the bounds of this country, but that he was at the same time a warm advocate for the old and sound adage, which reminded them that "Charity begins at home;" - it should take root here - expand it branches - and extend its influence, when necessary, even to foreign countries. He adverted to the deplorable circumstances attendant on the recent calamity, which had suddenly swept away a considerable number of meritorious and industrious fishermen, had consigned suddenly to their graves the husbands of many women, and had thrown on the community upwards of sixty fatherless children, utterly unprovided for. He observed that this most distressing occurrence had happened in a part of the county, which was, from its impoverished condition, wholly unable to afford support to the families of the deceased. Their means of support were devoted to destruction by the ravages of the tempest. This misfortune could not be guarded against by human care. The sufferers were occupied as fishermen, in supplying an article of comfortable sustenance to the opulent; and in supplying at a cheap rate a salutary species of food to the poor and necessitous; and it should not be forgotten that their employment afforded an excellent source of support to the poor of this county on its favourite element. He felt considerable satisfaction at reflecting that they were met together this day as one common family, composed of the county of Devon and city of Exeter, and occupied in one of the most interesting and gratifying pursuits which could engage the mind of man. He was certain, from his knowledge of the county - of the inhabitants of the city of Exeter, and of its Corporate Body, that it was only necessary to commence the glorious work of charity, and that its happy and successful progress would be assured; and he concluded by paying his tribute to the zeal and judicious activity with which the worthy Mayor had endeavoured to promote the desirable object of the Meeting.

Colonel Cutcliffe said, as a member of the Bideford Committee, and residing in the immediate neighbourhood where the severe infliction of Providence was felt, he was enabled to bear personal testimony to the correctness of the statement made by them of the loss of lives and property. In addition to the loss sustained by the fishermen, the calamity extended itself much farther; numerous little tradesmen in the neighbourhood had been in the habit of supplying cordage and other articles to the fishermen on trust, relying on the hopes of a successful season to be paid, and who, unless relieved by charity, would be deprived of their winter support. It might indeed be said that those distressed individuals had the resource provided by the law to apply to for relief; but the parish being one of the poorest in the county, was totally unable to make adequate provision for them.

Mr. Oxenham suggested that the subscription should be so divided that subscribers should be enabled either to subscribe for the widows and orphans exclusively, or for the general purposes of the charity; which, after a short discussion, in which Colonel Cutcliffe, Mr. Lyon, Sir T. Acland, Mr. B. Wray, Mr. Sanders, and other gentlemen took a part, the proposition was agreed to.

Thanks being voted to the Mayor, and a Committee formed, Sir T. Acland called the attention of the meeting to the word now in the motion, and the subscription was immediately begun, which speedily amounted to 125l. and is increasing.

Distressed Sufferers at Clovelly, &c.

AT a MEETING of GENTLEMEN of the COUNTY of DEVON, and of the CITY of EXETER, held at the Guildhall,

GEORGE GALLOWAY, Esq. Mayor in the Chair,

The Mayor stated that he had called the meeting, to take into consideration the propriety of entering into a Subscription for the Relief of the Widows and Children of the Fishermen and Pilots who lost their lives at Clovelly, and other places adjacent thereto, in the storm of the 4th October; and that he had received a communication from the Mayor of Bideford, which he read to the meeting: by which it appeared, that Thirty-one Fishermen and Pilots had unfortunately lost their lives; and that Nineteen Widows and Sixty-one helpless Children are left destitute, and wholly unable to support themselves, in consequence of the above calamity.

It also appeared, that the loss sustained in boats and fishing nets amounts to Twelve Hundred Pounds, or thereabout, so far as the same can be ascertained, nearly the whole of which had been incurred by families incapable of replacing the same, without the charitable contributions of a generous public.

The following Resolutions were then agreed to, on the motion of Sir THOMAS DYKE ACLAND, Bart. M.P. seconded by EDMUND PUSEY LYON, Esq.

That a Subscription now be opened for the Relief of thef unfortunate Families of the Fishermen and others, who perished on the Northern Coast of Devonshire, in the violent gale of wind of the 4th day of this Month, and to restore, so far as may be, the loss which has been sustained.

That EDWARD LLOYD SANDERS, Esq., be appointed Treasurer of the Subscription; and that all the BANKERS of the City of Exeter, and Mr. WILLIAM LEE, at the Devon and Exeter Savings Bank, be requested to receive the sums subscribed for this humane and charitable purpose.

That the amount of the Subscriptions be remitted to the Committee appointed on the 9th of October, by the General Meeting of the Inhabitants of the town and neighbourhood of Bideford.

That any Subscription which shall be received, accompanied by a wish expressing that it should be appropriated to the relief of the widows and children of the deceased, shall be transmitted to the Bideford Committee, with a request that they will apply the same to such purpose only.

It was also further resolved,

That a Committee, consisting of Sir THOMAS DYKE ACLAND, Bart. EDMUND PUSEY LYON, Esq. the MAYOR of EXETER, EDMUND GRANGER, Esq., and HENRY BLACKALL, Esq. be appointed to solicit subscriptions, and to correspond with the Bideford Committee.

That Mr. WILLIAM LEE be appointed Secretary of the Committee.

GEORGE GALLOWAY. Mayor.

The Mayor having left the chair, It was resolved, That the warmest thanks of the meeting be offered to the Mayor, for his alacrity and zeal in promoting the object of the meeting, and for his able conduct in the chair.

By which Statement, it will be seen that the sum of £68. 16s. 8d. has been expended for the immediate relief of the Widows and Orphans; that the sum of £800 has been placed under the direction of a particular Committee, for providing new and repairing old Boats and Nets lost and injured; that the sum of £2000 is invested in the Devon and Exeter Savings Bank; and that a Balance of £8. 16s. 6d. now remains in the hands of the Treasurer.

By the Scheme for the appropriation of funds invested in the Savings Bank, It is provided, that £400 at least, should be set apart for the exclusive purpose of placing out the Orphan Children Apprentices, or otherwise advancing them in the world; the sums to be advanced in respect of each child, not to exceed £10.- That out of the remaining Fund, and the Interest thereof, this Committee are to pay yearly to each Widow, £2.12s. for herself, which is to cease on her marriage, and £1. 6s. for each of her Orphan Children, living with her, and under the age of 10 years; and that a division of the Overplus (if any) of the general Fund, shall be made amongst the Children: the Interest of each Orphan, being a Son, to be vested at his age of 21 years; and of each Orphan, being a Daughter, to be vested at her age of 21 years, or on her marriage, which shall first happen, with Benefit of Survivorship amongst them.

The Scheme also contains powers to enable this Committee to value and redeem the Widows' Annuities prior to making such division, and to make a discretionary Allowance to the Parents of Persons lost in the storm of the 4th of October last, who were dependent on their Children for support; and also, to enable a General Committee, convened for the purpose, to vary the Plan for the Application of the Fund not actually applied, confining themselves to the objects before specified.

JAMES S. LEY, Chairman

The Chairman having left the Chair,

It was resolved, That the best thanks of this Committee be given to him for his zeal and unremitted exertions in the cause of the unfortunate sufferers.

                        POETRY.

                         DEVON.

CLOVELLY - Starcross; objects still arise,
At ev'ry energy Devonia tries
To heal their wounds; nor tries her skill in vain;
The tender sympathies triumphant reign
Throughout her wide extended bounds, nor fail,
Where talent, wealth, and goodness can avail.
See her exertions in Clovelly's cause!
Promptly she soothes, nor makes a willing pause,
In chasing sorrow from the dread abode
Of mis'ry, where calamity has trod;
Till pity, god-like, ev'ry aid has given,
Nor ask for more than gratitude to Heaven
Yet pain and anguish must, awhile, be view'd
(Though pity is repaid with gratitude).
When Heaven's dire commission, Death receives,
And nature all her deepest yearning gives;
When the frail bark, by angry tempests tost,
Gives its last heave, then sinks, and all is lost!

Heard ye the screams of wives and children left,
Of all their treasure all their hope bereft?
Yes, Devon, yes; warm sympathy was by,
Thy ever-memorable charity,
Quick as the joy, the glow an Angel feels
When God his grace to erring man reveals;
Of oil and wine the healing bounty gave
To ev'ry relick from the sweeping wave.

Though, Starcross, too, art heard in thy appeal -
The storm's destructive force how many feel!
And "penury and want" are ills to urge
As great as any pestilential scourge;
And though the sea's rough billows did not rise
To separate thee from thy fondest ties;
Still, Starcross sufferers, thy trials bring
The sorest pains that from misfortune spring;
And still the parent and the offspring, there,
Devonia's sympathy and bounty share.

But such (though great) are incidental claims:
Devonia, in her highest, proudest aims,
Her institutions count; wherein the blind,
The halt, the aged, the distemper'd mind,
All, all alike, the objects of her care,
Her gen'rous, unexampled bounty share:-
Wherein, (her highest excellence display'd),
The heart-bruis'd wanderer hath christian aid
To find the path, in innocence once trod,
That leads the contrite to the throne of God.

O highest, loveliest of all good that flows!
That reason honors, and devotion knows;
To check the fatal progress Woman makes,
When Man seduces first, and then - forsakes!
To check, the course by infamy pursued,
When thought is banish'd and remorse subdued;
To work reform when conscience is assail'd,
And every resource of vice has fail'd;
To ponder youth (the weaker vessel made)
Who errs by sympathy when Man has strayed;
(Though vile) to prove the vilest Woman's friend,
And spare mortality a hopeless end;
O highest, loveliest of all good that flows!
That Devon, in its plentitude, bestows!

Yes, Devon, yes, thy worth though feebly nam'd,
In England's record stands for ever fam'd!

THE LATE STORMS

The destructive Storms of the Winter, 1821-22, will be long remembered by the Shipping Industry of Great Britain, but in no part of England, (its extent considered) were their effects more severely felt than in the Town and Neighbourhood of ILFRACOMBE. Five poor widows and eighteen orphans, beside other Sufferers, are left destitute. They have lost, not only their natural protectors, but with them the property that gave them present comfort, and promised them future support:- The Masters who perished having had considerable interest in the Vessels they commanded.

A SUBSCRIPTION has been entered into at ILFRACOMBE, and about Twenty-Five pounds collected for their Relief. - It is earnestly hoped that the munificent liberality which was evinced in Devondshire on behalf of the Clovelly Sufferers will be extended to the objects of this application. This hard case yields in nothing but the number to that dreadful calamity.
