Volume 2 – Kent: The Alchins of Meopham, Leybourne and the Mallings

Part 3 – Alchins of Leybourne and the Mallings, Kent 1680 – 1901 ...continued...

1.1.3.8.3.1  ~~  William Henry Alchin

William was baptised at St James' church, East Malling on 17th May 1786. He married Mary Hubbard at East Malling on 21st January 1812. They were married by licence and the witnesses to the ceremony were Caroline Whittle, William and Mary Ann Terry and Thomas Alchin, the groom's younger brother.

William and Mary had four children – Mary (1813), Lucy (1814), William (1816) and Thomas (1818). The parish register between 1813 and 1818 describes William as either an apothecary or a surgeon. Mary died aged 34 years and she was buried at East Malling on 24th February 1818, probably from complications arising from childbirth.

William subsequently married Elizabeth Foreman by licence at East Malling on 13th September 1820. The ceremony was performed by the Vicar, Rev'd Isaac Godmond, and the witnesses to their wedding were the groom's younger brother Thomas Alchin and James Thornhill.

Elizabeth was baptised at the church of St John the Baptist, Wateringbury on 25th October 1797. She was the daughter of Robert Foreman and Elizabeth Webb and she was therefore William's third or fourth cousin (see para 1.3.10.2.6.4). Robert Foreman was a farmer of Wateringbury and Elizabeth Webb was the daughter of William Webb and Jane Alchin.

William and Elizabeth Alchin had at least six children – James (1822), Alfred (1824), Elizabeth (1827), Susannah (1829), Louisa (1830) and Ann (1833). William was a beneficiary of his Aunt Ann Alchin when she died in 1825. She bequeathed him the sum of 600 pounds. Her will describes William as a surgeon and apothecary of East Malling although it appears he later practised in London.

The will of his aunt Susannah Alchin records that William died sometime before 1839. William's widow Elizabeth was left a legacy of 1000 pounds in trust and a dozen bottles of home made wine by her husband's aunt Susannah Alchin in 1842.

William actually died at the age of 46 years and he was buried at East Malling on 12th July 1832. A parish rate roll for 1840 records that Elizabeth Alchin was living in a house owned by Richard Foreman, possibly her elder brother, for which she paid an annual rental of 12 pounds. At some time in the next 20 years Elizabeth moved her family to her native village of Wateringbury.

The 1841 census records that Elizabeth and her three youngest daughters (her eldest daughter was away at school) were living at East Malling Heath. The 1851 census records that Elizabeth and her four daughters were living at Teston Street, Teston.

The 1861 census records Elizabeth as "surgeon's widow". She and her three unmarried daughters were living at Water Street, Wateringbury. Also living with them were two servants – Emma Marshall a 19 year old cook and Mary Hubble a 19 year old housemaid.

The 1871 census records that Elizabeth was an annuitant and she and her daughter Louisa were living at Wateringbury Street, Wateringbury. Elizabeth died at Wateringbury later the same year aged 74 years (Malling 1871 September qtr Volume 2a Page 283). She was buried at East Malling on 30th September 1871.

1.1.3.8.3.1.1  ~~  Mary Alchin

Mary was baptised at St James' church, East Malling on 9th March 1813. Mary probably died at the age of 3 years. She was buried at East Malling on 22nd April 1816. Mary must have died before 1839 as she is not included in the will of her great aunt Susanna Alchin.

1.1.3.8.3.1.2  ~~  Lucy Susannah Alchin

Lucy was baptised at St James' church, East Malling on 12th June 1814. She probably died aged 3 months and she was buried at East Malling on 2nd September 1814. Lucy must have died before 1839 as she is also not included in the will of her great aunt Susanna Alchin.

1.1.3.8.3.1.3  ~~  William Henry Alchin

William was baptised at St James' church, East Malling on 26th February 1816. He was bequeathed the sum of one thousand five hundred pounds by his great-aunt Susanna Alchin in 1842 and he was one of the three Executors of her will. William married, possibly to Marianne Lane, in London in 1846 (Lambeth 1846 March qtr Volume 4 Page 211); she was probably born in Norfolk in 1823.

William and Marianne had at least eight children, all of whom survived to adulthood – William (1846), Thomas (1848), Harry (1849), Frank (1851), Arthur (1854), Frederick (1855), Mary (1857) and Florence (1860). Their eldest child was born in Paris and the five youngest in Kensington.

William was a medical practitioner based at Bayswater in London but he also had extensive lands in Kent and Dorset. The 1851 census records that William was a graduate of London University and he and his wife and their four young children (all under 5 years of age) were living at 7 Pembroke Villas, Bayswater.

In 1852 William Henry Alchin was named as an Executor and Trustee in the last Will and Testament for his uncle, Thomas Alchin. For his services he was to be paid fifty pounds but in 1856 Thomas wrote a codicil to his will removing William  Henry Alchin as his Executor. The 1852 will of Thomas Alchin describes William Henry Alchin as a Bachelor of Medicine living at No 7 Pembroke Villas Westbourne Cross Bayswater in the County of Middlesex.

The 1861 census records that William was a General Practitioner  and he and his wife and their eight children were still living at 7 Pembroke Villas, Kensington. Their servant was Ellen P. Ashdown who was born at Leyborne in 1835. The 1871 census records that William was a doctor (MB London – General Practitioner) and he and his wife and four of their younger children were living at 4 Pembroke Villas, Kensington.

The 1873 land ownership survey records that William lived at Bayswater and he owned 6 acres freehold with a gross estimated rental of 26 pounds. The 1881 census records that Henry was living at Loders House, Loders in Dorset. His occupation is recorded as "MB London Uni". Although Henry is recorded as being married he and his wife may have separated. Living with him at the house were four servants.

Mary Ann is incorrectly recorded in the 1881 census as a widow. She and three of her unmarried children were living at 1 Gratton Road, Hammersmith. Interestingly though, William's nephew John Golding was staying with them at the time.

William died in 1890 aged 74 years (Marylebone 1890 December qtr Volume 1a Page 428). Marianne probably died in 1894 aged 71 years (Fulham 1894 March qtr Volume 1a Page 167).

1.1.3.8.3.1.3.1  ~~  William Henry Alchin (Sir)

William was born at Paris, France on 16th October 1846. The 1851 census records that the young boy was living with his family at 7 Pembroke Villas, Bayswater. The 1861 census records that William was a school boy and he was living with his family at 7 Pembroke Villas, Kensington.

Like his father and grandfather he studied medicine at London University. According to his biography William was a medical officer aboard the SS Great Eastern soon after he graduated. The 1871 census records that William was a member of the Royal College of Surgeons and he and his younger brother Harry were lodging at 6 Millman Street, Holborn. William may also have been the ship's surgeon aboard the SS 'Spain" on it's voyage to New York in August 1879.

William travelled to New York aboard the SS "England" in August 1880 and it is possible that he was on his way to be married. William married Margaret Holland in 1880; she was born in New York in the United States of America in about 1853.

At the time of the 1881 census William and his wife were living at Marylebone in London. There are no children recorded as living with them. In December 1882 Henry and Margaret arrived at New York aboard the SS 'Servia". They were probably traveling to visit Margaret's family.

The 1891 census records that William was a physician and he was living at 5 Chandos Streeet, Marylebone. His wife was away at the time and the only other inhabitants of the house were three servants. The 1901 census records that William and his wife were still living at 5 Chandos Street, Marylebone and he was a surgeon. Also living with them was his 18 year old niece Dorothy Alchin (the daughter of Frederick Alchin and Emily Cooper). William also employed four live-in house servants.

William was knighted in 1907 and in 1910 he was appointed as "physician extraordinary" to King George V. William died at either Plaxtol or East Malling on 8th February 1912 (Pancras 1912 March qtr Volume 1b Page 56). He was buried at East Malling on 15th February 1912.

The Roll of the Royal College of Physicians of London, 1826-1925, compiled by G.H.Brown (London 1955)

William Henry Allchin was born in Paris, on 16th October 1846, the eldest son of a Bayswater doctor. After a private education Allchin studied medicine at University College, London. He qualified in 1869 and served as medical officer of the SS "Great Eastern". In 1871 he graduated MB, with the University Scholarship.

He joined in succession the staff of the Western Dispensary, the St Marylebone Dispensary, and the Victoria Hospital for Children. Simultaneously he lectured on comparative anatomy at University College. In 1872 he was appointed registrar and demonstrator of practical physiology at the Westminster Hospital. He was elected assistant physician there in 1873, and physician in 1877. He lectured on pathology, 1873-78, physiology, 1878-82, and medicine 1882-92. He also held the office of Dean from 1878-83, and 1890-93. His work at the Hospital led to the publication of his papers on 'Functional Disease' and 'Vital Diagnosis', in the Westminster Hospital Reports (vol. II, 1886, pp35-52 & vol. IV, 1888, pp 105-19 respectively).

It is said that he was 'highly successful both as an administrator and as a clinical teacher of the deductive type' (Munk's Roll, vol IV, p254). Allchin made literary contributions to Sir Richard Quain's A Dictionary of Medicine (1882-94) and Sir Thomas Clifford Allbutt's A System of Medicine by Many Authors (1896-99).

Allchin was closely connected with the Royal College of Physicians throughout his professional career. He was appointed to the new office of Assistant Registrar in 1883, but felt obliged to resign after two years due to his opposition to the College's policy of applying to the Crown for permission to grant medical degrees. He delivered the Bradshaw Lecture in 1891, the Harveian Oration in 1903, and the Lumeian Lectures in 1905.

Allchin was much interested in the move to reconstitute London University. He was secretary of the Royal College of Physicians' University Committee, between 1889 and 1898, and one of its representatives to the new Senate, later compiling An Account of the Reconstruction of the University of London (3 vols.) (London, 1905-1912). He was also a member of the Medical Consultative Board to the Admiralty, and an examiner for the Army and Navy Medical Departments and the Indian Medical Service.

He was the editor of A Manual of Medicine (London, 1900-03), which became well known. Allchin retired from the staff of the Westminster Hospital in 1905. In 1907 he received his knighthood, and three years later was appointed physician extraordinary to George V.

Allchin married Margaret Holland in 1880. He died at his country home at East Malling, Kent, on 8th February 1912.
