John Henry Jauncey DSO & Bar was born. A son for Henry Hastings Jauncey and his wife Edith Blanche Pringle, a grandson for Henry John Jauncey and his wife Muriel Charlie Dundas and a great grandson for Arabella Cobbe and her first husband Capt. Henry Fyge Jauncey 50th Foot.


He married Muriel Charlie Dundas as Lieutenant Commander John Henry Jauncey, of HMS Walrus, on Saturday 4th August 1923 at St. Mary's Cathedral, Edinburgh. His widowed mother was living in Ipswich and her parents were living at South Queens Queensferry. The bride wore a 14th century dress of deep cream damask brocade and a veil of old Brussels lace with an ornament of Bruce's Heart in crystal surmounted by the Crown of Scotland set in emeralds and diamonds.

Among the eminent guests were Vice Admiral Sir Reginald Tyrwhitt, Lady Tyrwhitt and Miss Tyrwhitt. Of course, Rev Richard Chaloner Cobbe (3), Rector of Bradenham and his wife Sarah Burslem, together with their children, descended from Ursula Tirwit and her husband Edmund First Earl of Mulgrave (1566 - 1646). Those children included Arabella Cobbe great grandmother of John Henry Jauncey, France Cobbe 11th Countess of Huntingdon and Charlotte Cobbe, ancestor of this writer's wife. Mr Bill Brocklesby tells the writer that the Tyrwhitt guests were a branch of the Tirwit/Tyrwhitt family and to make matters even more interesting, Mr. Brocklesby revealed a Tyrwhitt Road in London and a LMS Locomotive called Tyrwhitt (No. 5657) built in Derby in 1934.

In 1934 John William Mack, a dealer aged 54 years was found Not Guilty of receiving two miniature and other articles, the property of John Henry Jauncey and discharged.

John Henry Jauncey had a distinguished and heroic naval career, winning two Distinguished Service Order Medals, viz: DSO and Bar. He was essentially a Destroyer man, highly regarded for his skill and daring in handling these smaller vessels. He joined his first ship in the Mediterranean as midshipman and was recognised for his zeal and ability. On 8th September 1909 he was confirmed in the rank of Sub-Lieutenant from acting sub-lieutenant and on 22 Jun 1911 was promoted to Lieutenant. During the First World War he served on the Dover patrol, receiving the French Life-Saving Medal (Silver-Gilt). He retired as Commander in the early 1930s but on the outbreak of WW2 he enthusiastically returned to active service In July 1942 with a sea going commission. He was in command of the Anti-Aircraft ship Palomares and Senior Officer of the PQ -17 Russian Convoy. After the order to scatter, he was able to collect the few survivors and hide them in the Matoshkin Strait, Nova Zembla and guide them to safety in Archangel. This act of heroism produced his first DSO.

He was then assigned, with his vessel Palomares to the landings in North Africa where Palomares was bombed with heavy casualties, was on fire for five hours and lost her stern but her Captain, John Henry Jauncey, brought her to the safety of Algiers. On refitting, the Palomares provided anti-aircraft cover for the American landings at Salerno where she hit a mine. But again, John Henry Jauncey brought her to safety in harbour. He then received his second DSO and in 1944 he was appointed to be Captain of "D" Commanding the Clyde Destroyer & Escort Flotillas. His last appointment was to command the battleship HMS Renown.

On 23 September 1958, he died suddenly in an Edinburgh nursing home.

Beryl Lucille Mennell, future daughter in law for Bruno Mazzarrini & his wife Edith Louisa Dawkins and wife of Riccardo Mazzarrini was born on 21st Feb 1904 in Jamaica. Documents show that she was born in Kingston, Jamaica. The town of Sav-la mar was given as the family's last permanent address and the address of nearest relative John W. Mennell, on the 1912 Passenger List for the journey from Kingston, Jamaica to the USA which was, no doubt, Savanah-la-Mar on the south coast at the west end of the Island. This does not mean that Beryl was born anywhere other than Kingston, but an interesting topic for anyone interested to follow up. From images seen by this writer, she retained her vibrant good looks throughout her life.

Alexander Sidney Godolphin Jauncey had his death registered in Brighton Sussex as Alexander S. G. Jauncey, the writer considers this to be a valid sighting.

Charles Eliot Jauncey MA LLB was born in Edinburgh; a son for John Henry Jauncey DSO & Bar, and his wife Muriel Charlie Dundas. Charles was grandson of Henry Hastings Jauncey and his wife Edith Blanche Pringle, great grandson of Henry John Jauncey and his wife Sophia Hubbard and great great grandson of Arabella Cobbe and her first husband Capt Henry Fyge Jauncey (1795-1821) 50th Foot and not to be confused with his uncle Capt Henry Fyge Jauncey RN (c1777-1834). He was also related to the writer's wife, Rev. Prof. Julia Davies, whose ancestor was Charlotte (Godolphin) Cobbe (1783-1858) sister of and one year older than Charles's ancestor Arabella Cobbe. Thus enjoying, with Julia, illustrious ancestors, their siblings and their relatives, that can be glimpsed in the various pedigrees, ascendant and descendant on this website, with more to be added. As stated elsewhere, even Geoffrey Chaucer was an in-law, married to Katherine Roet's sister.

His father Capt John Henry Jauncey commanded destroyers during WW1 and WW2. He attended Radley, and then, following in his father's footsteps, he joined the Royal Naval Voluntary Reserve. However, as sub-lieutenant in India, he was invalided out and suffered a permanent limp. He then read law at Christ Church Oxford and at Glasgow University.

On 11 September 1948 he married Jean Cunningham Graham in Culross Abbey, Fife. They were divorced in 1969. Whilst, in the main, working in Chancery matters, Wills, Estates and Trusts; he became involved with conservation and historic buildings and a taste for heraldry and genealogical issues. In 1951 he was appointed Member of the Royal Company of Archers (The Queen's Bodyguard in Scotland) and in 1963 he took silk. His first judicial appointment was in 1971 when he become Sheriff Principal for Fife and Kinross and then in 1972, for seven years, as judge in the Courts of Appeal of Jersey and Guernsey. In 1983 he presided over a 203 day case involving fluoride in water which, it appears, did not please him.

In 1983 Charles Eliot Jauncey became Baron Jauncey of Tullichettle, of Comrie, in the District of Perth and Kinross. His Times obituary refers to his time in the House of Lords where he was not bound by precedent, was skilled in brevity of expression and made an apt use of words.

When in Bergen around 1998, this writer and his wife, attended an organ recital given by Dr. Martin Neary. Whilst aware of the problems between Dr. Neary and the Dean of Westminster Abbey, little did we realise that a relative, even if distant, would be commissioner and arbitrator in that dispute and finding in favour of the Abbey. Lord Jauncey was also involved in overturning the decision of the RAF Air Marshals in blaming the Chinook pilots for the helicopter disaster on the Mull of Kintyre . The crash was of particular poignancy to the writer and his wife as one of those killed was the relative of a neighbour.

Lord Jauncey of Tullichettle (Charles Eliot Jauncey great great grandson of Arabella Cobbe) died 18 July 2007 aged 82 and was survived by his third wife, two sons and a daughter from his first marriage and a daughter from his third marriage to Camilla Cathcart in 1977.

Beryl Mennell, aged 24 years, a Secretary and living in Brooklyn, New York, returns from Kingston, Jamaica, aboard S.S. Sixaola. This vessel was owned by United Fruit S..S. Company. It was competed in 1911 in Belfast, Ireland. It was sunk on 13 June 1942 by German U Boat U-159, some 50 miles off Panama en route from Cristobal to New Orleans via Guatemala. Twenty nine of those aboard lost their lives but there were 172 survivors - http://uboat.net/allies/merchants/1795.html. There are other searchable sites via Google.

The Whittred Mennell connection with fruit is strong so, maybe, Whittred left Jamaica to become a New York representative for the fruit shipping company.

30th April

Christina Diane Mazzarrini, a daughter for Richard and Beryl Mazzarrini, is born in Brooklyn, New York, USA. The various Mazzarrini naturalisation documents, seen by this writer/webmaster, appear to indicate a date of 20th April 1930 but her daughter Christina is adamant that the date is 30th April 1934. This writer cannot possibly argue with that source. Christina, still living in 2013 married twice. Firstly, in 1955 to Karl Henry Freyer a USAF pilot. They were divorced in 1978 and he died in 2002. Secondly, to Walter Russell Hartvigsen on 29 January 1983 in Sarasota, Florida, USA. He was born 22 Aug 1923 in Iowa, USA and died 11 November 2012 in Sarasota, Florida, USA.

Christina Diane & Karl Henry Freyer had three daughters; Christina Dora, born 17 January 1957, Boston, Mass., USA; Jennifer Beryl, born 9 June 1959, Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio, USA and Karla Sue, born 28 November 1965, Elk Grove Village, Illinois, USA.
