William Hague b. 1891 "Story Page"

WILLIAM HAGUE
   William Hague was the brother of Donna Hague Blinn's grandfather, Leonard Hague (Sr.).  Leonard and William came to the USA.

Born:              April 1, 1891 ~ 4 Swallows Yard, Stalybridge, England
Married:          May 26, 1917 ~ to Alice Walker in England.
Married:          May 19, 1921 ~ to Sarah Smith, Smith
Married:          August 5, 1944 ~ to Lily, Hurst, Webster
Died:               June 10, 1949 while visiting 38/40 Hope St.-Home of Mr. & Mrs. Leonard Grimshaw
Buried:           Moshassuck Cemetery with 2nd wife Sarah Smith Smith Hague.
 2 rows behind Ernest & Arthur Howles plot.   Father & Brother of Iva Howles Hague.
       
William was the first child born to Thomas and Agnes Hague (“Haigh” on his birth record) of Stalybridge. William was the 2nd  child birthed by Agnes.   (Agnes had a daughter, Louisa aka: Louise) in 1887 prior to her marriage to William’s father, Thomas Hague).    The marriage of Thomas and Agnes took place on November 29, 1890 and about 4 months later William was born on 01 April 1891,

It’s assumed they named their first son after Thomas’ father who was also William Hague.  William Hague had a listed profession as a private grenadier guard & cloth dyer on his 1917 marriage record and served in World War 1 as a corporal in the Grenadier Guards of the British per his obituary notice in the Pawtucket Times. 

At approximately 26 years old on May 26, 1917, William married Alice Walker, a cotton frame tenter, (also 26 yrs. old) at Mount Olivet Chapel, Stalybridge.   Alice was the daughter of a coal dealer, John Walker.  William was living at 121 Grasscroft Street, the home of his parents, and Alice was from 21 Ashley Street, both in Stalybridge.  The witnesses were J. Hague and A. Hague: it is assumed these witnesses were his brother James Hague and either his sister Annie or Alice Hague.  The records held in Central Falls, RI indicate that William and Alice eventually divorced.    Four years after his first marriage, William then married a divorced woman named Sarah (Smith) Smith ~ her maiden name and married name were both Smith.  The Justice of the Superior Court married William and Sarah in Pawtucket on May 19, 1921.  William was then about 30 years old. 

obituary:
William Hague, a machinist, died on June 10, 1949 at approximately 58 years old of coronary thrombosis and passed away unexpectedly while visiting the home of Mr. & Mrs. Leonard Grimshaw of 38 Hope Street, Pawtucket.   His usual residence was 229 East Street, Pawtucket.  Buglers at his funeral sounded taps.  He was a member of Post 88, Canadian Legion and a marker reflecting this is placed at his grave in Moshassuck.  No children were born from any of William’s three marriages (per Gloria). 
    Note:  William Hague could not have come to America 39 years  prior to his death in 1949 as written in his Obit.   In 1910 he was about 19 years old and most likely would have still been in England.
  --William married Alice Walker in 1917 in Stalybridge, England. In 1921, he married Sarah Smith Smith in America.

 
Sarah Smith Smith Hague
B:        January 22, 1885 - England
M:        May 19, 1921 in Pawtucket, RI
D:        December 30, 1943 (58 years old)Buried: Moshassuck Cemetery under William Hague/single plot  William’s 2nd wife, Sarah, was born in 1885 so she was about 6 years older than William.  She was divorced from her first husband.  Her parents were James Smith and Catherine Logan both of England.  At the time of the marriage between William and Sarah both were listed as residing at 4 Liberty Street (off Hunt St. in Central Falls, RI.  This was the same residence as Leonard Hague Sr. at the time he arrived from England to live with his brother William until Leonard married Iva in 1926. Iva was living on 76 Earle St. .  Sarah was a weaver and William a spinner and the name/occupations of their fathers on their marriage certificate showed Thomas Hague/gas worker and James Smith (her father) as deceased.    Sarah was remembered as being a nice person and loved by Leonard & Iva. They would often visit Sarah & William on Liberty Street.
.  William & Sarah were listed as the witnesses at Leonard & Iva’s wedding.  Sarah Smith Smith Hague died on December 30, 1943 (buried on January 2, 1944) at approximately 58 years old.  She died at 4 Liberty Streetbut her resident address was 29 East Street, Pawtucket, RI.  I’m not sure who would have been then living at
4 Liberty Street , the place of Sarah’s death as both she and William had moved to East Street in Pawtucket.  She died of coronary thrombis, chronic myocarditis.  Sarah is buried underneath William Hague in Moshassuck Cemetery, in Central Falls, RI.
Eight months after the death of Sarah, William married a widow named Lily Hurst Webster.  Gloria believes William may have met Lily at the British Canadian Legion Club in Pawtucket, RI. 

 Lily Hurst Webster Hague
B:        January 6, 1893 in England
M:        Mr. Webster – marriage information unknown
M:        William Hague ~ August 5, 1944 in Pawtucket.
D:        after June 1949 (exact date unknown)
Buried: Moshassuck Cemetery, Central Falls, RI with her first husband Charles Webster.
Lily was born on January 6, 1893 as the daughter of Ralph Hurst and June all of England.  Lily was about 51 years old and a weaver when she married William Hague (53 yrs old), a lathe hand.  Both of their fathers were deceased when they married in Pawtucket/Baptist.  There is no recollection or photos of Lily, but Gloria believes Lily & William met at the Canadian Legion Club in Pawtucket, RI

Louise Bancroft - Step-Daughter of Thomas Hague

Louisa Bancroft Young (aka: Louise)
   Louisa Bancroft was the step-sister of Donna Hague Blinn's grandfather, Leonard Hague, Sr. who came to the USA

 Born: June 17, 1887 at
9 Elgin Street, Stalybridge, England
Parent: Agnes Bancroft ~ father unknown. Raised with Thomas Hague family
Siblings: stepsister to Hague's: William, John, James, Annie, Leonard, Alice
 Married: January 24, 1909 ~ The Parish of Castle Hall, Stalybridge
 Husband: James Henry Young
 Child: Agnes Young Mottershead
 Died: May 31, 1977 at 89 years old – 30 Cambray Rd. Blackpool, England
 Buried: unknown

Louisa Bancroft was born in 1887 as the daughter of Agnes Bancroft.  Agnes later married Thomas Hague in 1890 so Louise was about 3 years old when her mother married Thomas.  Louise’s birth record shows her mother’s occupation as a cotton box tenter and no father’s name is shown on her birth or marriage records.

 At the time of the 1901 census, Louise was living with her mother and Thomas, along with all the other Hague children at 119 Grasscroft Street.  She was then about 13 years old and working as a cotton weaver.

On January 24, 1909, Louise (21 year old, weaver) living at 121 Grasscroft Street (home of Thomas & Agnes Hague) married James Henry Young (aka: Harry), a 25 year old porter from 16 Stamford Street.
He was the son of William Young, a coachman and Eleanor Chilton Young (formerly Carr).   Louise and Harry were married at the Parish Church of Castle Hall in Stalybridge, England.

Just over one year later, Louise and Harry had a daughter on March 27, 1910 and named her Agnes, presumably after Louise’s mother. Agnes Young married a man named (Herbert) Bert Mottershead (sometime after 1939 -- place unknown.)   Louise, Harry and Agnes remained in Stalybridge until at least 1939 (according to voter’s records) and lived at 119 Grasscroft Street– a house attached or joined to 121 Grasscroft where her stepfather, Thomas Hague resided.  Her mother, Agnes Bancroft Hague, had died in 1935.    No voters’ records were produced during the war so the next voters list was in1945 and the Young family had gone by then. 

The following photo is typical of what this type of “adjoining” housing (119 & 121 Grasscroft Street) would have looked like in Stalybridge during that period.  -- photo to be inserted --

I learned from a neighbor (Irene Kerr of Blackpool England) that Louise and Harry were shopkeepers in Stalybridge but eventually Louise could not continue the business as her husband took ill. I have not been able to trace any records as to what type of shop they owned/ran from Stalybridge records.   The family eventually moved to Blackpool England (assuming sometime between late 1939 and 1945) and lived at these locations:
   -- 12 Campbell Avenue – in 1958 – year of death James H. Young (Harry)
   --  Cumbria Avenue
   -- 30 Cambray Road - Louisa lived here with her daughter and son-in-law (Agnes & Bert Mottershead) until her death in 1977.

Louise kept in contact over the years with her step brother, Leonard Hague, Sr. who was then living in America (Rhode Island) by sending cards and pictures as did her daughter Agnes.  From Louise’s writings, it appeared she was a spiritual woman.  Her neighbor (Irene Kerr on Cambray Rd) mentioned during our visit with her in June 2003, that Louise was considered a very wise woman ~ someone who others would approach to seek advice.

Irene also told a story about Louise once being attacked by her son-in-law, Bert.  It seems that Bert had an illness in which he was taking medication.  The medication has a rare potential for side effects but evidently he was one that suffered from them.  The story told by Irene was that Bert attacked Louise with a kitchen knife but the outcome was not harmful or fatal to Louise.


Louise’s husband, James Young (“Harry”) (railway foreman) died in 1958 and is buried with her mother, Agnes Bancroft Hague, at St. Paul’s in Stalybridge. The church records indicate Louise purchased the plot. 

Louise died on May 31, 1977 of cerebral astereoclerosis at her home on 30 Cambray Road in the presence of her daughter.  Her place of burial is unknown.

Her daughter, Agnes Young Mottershead, was affiliated with the Methodist Church. I’m not sure if her mother was also a member of this religion & therefore buried from a local (Blackpool) Methodist church.  However, it seems that the Norwich Cathedral was of interest for some reason to Louise as she sent over several photos/postcards of this particular church

Thomas Hague b. 1864 "Story Page"

Thomas Hague
   Thomas Hague is the great-grandfather of Donna Hague Blinn.  Thomas H. Hague's son, Leonard Hague (Sr.), came to Rhode Island.  Leonard was Donna's grandfather.

Born:    July 19, 1864 Barley Croft Newton. District Newton & Godley
Parents:            William Hague & Hannah (Thorp) M: Sept 5, 1848
Siblings:            Selina Hague Smith B: May 4, 1852
            Joseph Hague B: December 30, 1861
            Sarah Hague B: June 17, 1866
`           James Hague B: January 19, 1870
            Hannah Hague Horsefield B: August 28, 1874              
Married:           November 29, 1890 – Agnes Bancroft
St. George’s Church~Parish of New St. George’s~Stalybridge
Discharged:      August 3, 1893 with certificate of good character.
Died:                April 24, 1937 11 Friendship Yard~
Huddersfield Rd. Stalybridge
Buried: St. Paul’s with daughter Annie Hilton & son-in-law Walter Hilton                        Grave No. R.26G.103

Thomas Hague was born to William & Hannah (Thorp/e) Hague.  At 16 years old, although he gave his age as 18, he joined the Black Watch Regiment at York in 1881.  His obituary lists his many accomplishments during his years in the military service including his war medals for his battles of engagement. 

The Black Watch (Royal Highland Regiment) was the first kilted regiment in the British Army and the first to introduce the bagpipe.  It’s the oldest regiment and dates back to 1624 when the government of the day felt they needed to “keep a check on the wild clansmen.”

In 1889, at about 25 years old, Thomas returned to civil life.  In November, 1890 he married Agnes Bancroft, cotton box tenter, who had a 3-year-old child named Louisa (Louise) Bancroft. 

Thomas served with the Stalybridge Police Borough for a short time. Thomas and Agnes had 6 children together ~ William, John, James, Annie, Leonard & Alice. All immigrated to America except for his daughter Annie with whom he is buried.  John Hague was killed in WWI.

Thomas died at 72 year old of bronchopneumonia, hemiplegia (left) and cerebral thrombosis, in the presence of his son-in-law, Walter Hilton who was living at 11 Friendship Yard.  Thomas’ place of burial in St. Paul’s churchyard in Stalybridge is reputedly the largest church burial ground in England but fell into decay and all monuments were removed around 2000.

John Hague b. 1893 "Story Page"

John Hague
  -- The great uncle of Donna Hague Blinn.  Donna's grandfather, Leonard Hague b. 1898 England, d. 1958 Pawtucket, RI was brother to this John Hague who died in France during WWI--

 Born: March 14, 1893 ~ 4 Swallows Yard, Stalybridge
 Marriage: Not Married.
 World War I ~ 1914 –1918   
  (War declared August 14, 1914.  Peace declared: June 28,1919)
 Died: September 1916 in World War I
  Burial Place: France. Unknown grave. Name on Thiepval Wall

John Hague was the second son born to Thomas and Agnes Hague: he was born 2 years after their first son, William. His father’s profession was listed as a Borough Policeman/Stalybridge on John’s birth record.

In the 1901 Census, John was listed among all the children living with Thomas & Agnes; he was 8 years old at the time of this census. Prior to obtaining the March, 1901 census out of Stalybridge, it was unknown that John was yet another child within the Thomas Hague family and many mysteries still remain unsolved on John’s life.

In searching for a copy of his death record, England’s Tameside Registrar’s office has searched the Stalybridge death indexes from 1901- 1916 and they found no record of his death.  They also further researched the area of Ashton where a local hospital was located and found no death record from 1901-1910.


Grenadier Guards 1915

In October of 2003, when I connected with Delia Martin (great granddaughter of Thomas Hague), documents and photos became available in which it became apparent that John Hague had served as a Guardsman in the Grenadier Guards for the British Military during the Great War.

Leonard Hague Sr. (John’s brother) did not often talk about John when reminiscing about his brothers and sisters back in England. However, Gloria seems to recall a brief mention of his name by Grandpa (Leonard Hague, Sr.) at some point in time where he stated: “…and then there was my brother, John.”

The photos of John are not dated except for the one dated “1918” where it is speculated that John is shown in the back row (4th from the left). This was based on the facial features and hairstyle when compared to another photo of John.  However, John died 10 Sept 1916 in the Battle of the Somme in France in: he was killed next to his brother, William Hague. Newspaper article tells of this event. Perhaps the photo date is 1913. With this original photo in the family archives, it assuredly means a family member is in this photo.

In 1920 his father, Thomas Hague, received a scroll commemorating John’s duty to his country.  There is also a memorial document from Buckingham Palace signed by King George noting “a brave life given for others in the Great War
