Subject: Charles I'Anson Sculpture
Date: 29 May 2006
I came across a cast sculpture by a Charles I'Anson in an isolated spot
near Chapel Le Dale church on the way to Wernside Hill, Yorkshire. The
figure is an archer but giving the impression of an alien creature.
I wondered if anyone in the family could tell me something of it's
history. A plaque mentions that it was recovered from Hurtle pot
at one time and is now protected by the Bogart of Hurtle pot. Let's
hope it is. It is a fine, if rusting, piece of art.

I'Anson racing history
William I'Anson b 1810 Middleham, NRY successful trainer of Blink
Bonny, Caller Ou and Blair Athol, lived at Hungerford
House, Norton, trained at Spring Cottage and now rests in St.Peter's, Norton.
His brother Robert trained at Middleham and Robert's son , Robert (
b 1850 ) is described in the 1901 census as a racing official living at
Chean Road, Ewell , Surrey.
According to Blakeborough's account of this great racing family, little
is known of these two I'Ansons who do not appear to have emerged from the
shadows of the eminent William.
Is this to remain the case? Is there a racing historian who can
record the racing achievements of these two Roberts ?
The younger Robert's eldest daughter , Julia May b 1875 married Percy
Russell ( d. 1938 ) of the Malton brewing family.

From: Barbara Holland in Sidney, AUS
James Janson, born London 1809. His father was Francis Janson,
Doctor of Medicine. Convicted at Old Bailey in 1832 and sent
to Australia for life, I am a descendant of James and live in Sydney, Australia.
So far I haven't had any success in finding James' birth in London, searching
local Historical society.
I would love to know where we are from.
Barbara Holland (nee Janson)

Dear Maureen, thank you so much for your reply.
Unfortunately, I don't have my James Janson's birth certificate, but I
do have his convict documents, Permission to Marry, Marriage and
his Death Certificate and Probate.
My James could read and write and taught his sons to read and write.
His place of birth is always given as London and it is on his death certificate
(informant his eldest son, also James) where it is written : Father
- Francis Janson : Father's Occupation - Doctor of Medicine.
James died on 10 August, 1888 and was 80 yrs old.
The list of male convicts by the ship Clyde in 1832 have James being
23 yrs old and a Ladies shoemaker, 4.1/2 years.Thought you might like to
know 'his knuckles of middle fingers of both hands appeared dislocated'.
James continued in bootmaking (even while a convict) until his
death. But his fathers occupation was interesting and obviously the
children of James had been told about this. Unfortunately, the mother
of James isn't recorded, which would have helped in the research.
There was also another James Janson, trialled at Old Bailey and he was
a few years younger than my James, but he wasn't banished to Australia.
When I looked at the South Australian I'Anson's I noticed that some
of them are Doctors, one with the middle name Francis and wondered
if there is a connection..........regards, Barbara
