Beauvoir (née Sharpe, later Douglas), Mary

  • Biography: Mary Beauvoir was born on 26th May 1753, only daughter of the MP Fane William Sharpe. In 1782, Mary married Dr Osmund Beauvoir; after his death in 1789, she later remarried to Dr Andrew Douglas in 1791. She had a close relationship with the author Elizabeth Carter, moving in her bluestocking literary circles, and the two women would often travel together. Mary’s second husband, Dr Andrew Douglas, was a brother-in-law of Elizabeth Carter and her physician too. In 1792, the Douglases took a trip to Switzerland and Italy for medicine that would help a health complaint that Mary suffered from, and on their way back they travelled through revolutionary France, documenting their experiences in ‘Notes of a Journey’. Mary died on 20th February 1807. Mary Sharpe and Mary Hamilton were acquaintances from their youth. They wrote to each other about literature, and Sharpe would often invite Hamilton to the theatre. Hamilton confided her unhappiness at Court to Sharpe, and Sharpe wrote at length about her ties with Elizabeth Carter. Around 1789, the two had a disagreement, and the friendship was ended.

It is likely he worked for them after Hamilton’s father died in 1771, as Benn is not mentioned in his will. After he stopped working for the Hamiltons he stayed in contact with the family and was involved in their affairs. He acted as secretary whilst Hamilton was living at Clarges Street, London, despite no longer being employed by her. Hamilton tried to assist him in getting work in the Treasury, however it seems he did not achieve this position.

  • VIAF
  • Biography: Elizabeth Malyn was born in 1691 to Thomas Malyn and Valentina Cox. She was married and widowed four times. Her first marriage was in 1713 to James Fleet. In his will he left her the property Tewin Water House. Her second marriage, to Captain William Sabine c.1734, was said to have been for wealth. Her third earned her status: in 1739 she married Charles Cathcart, 8th Lord. Her title from then onwards was Lady Cathcart, and she continued to use it following Lord Cathcart’s death in 1740. Lord Cathcart had children from his previous marriage, and Malyn appears to have formed a particular connection with his grandson, Francis, 8th Lord Napier. Napier lived at her Tewin Water House property for a period of time and she left him money in her will. Many of Lord Cathcart’s other grandchildren (the children of his son, Charles Cathcart Junior) are cousins of Mary Hamilton’s. Cathcart’s fourth marriage was in 1745 to Hugh Macguire. This was a very unhappy marriage. Macguire felt entitled to the properties belonging to her and her previous husbands, and when Malyn resisted giving him the deeds to Tewin Water House he imprisoned her in his castle in Tempo. She was completely isolated and lived on the bare essentials for over twenty years, until Macguire's death in 1766. Malyn then returned to England, to Tewin Water House, and regained her health and social community. Malyn died in 1789.

Her brother, Charles Asgill Junior, is renowned for the 1782 incident, the Asgill Affair. He was almost executed by American forces in protest against French intervention, and his execution was prevented by the French monarchs. Asgill suffered severe emotional distress as a result of this incident, as she had persuaded their father to let her brother join the army. Asgill, her mother, and her sister, Harriot Maria, visited France to thank the King and Queen for their action. Following this, a French magazine reported that Asgill is 'as beautiful as an angel’. In 1786 she married Robert Colville of Hemingstone Hall, Suffolk. She died in 1825.

Little is known about Farhill’s early life; however, he is documented as having been working in the royal household by 1780. He is likely to have died sometime after 1810. Farhill and Mary Hamilton became acquainted around 1780, and their earliest extant letter refers to a gift of paint that he sent to Mary. A keen poet, John sent Mary many of his ideas and notes to read and give feedback on. However, after 1783 Mary seems to have dropped the friendship as John Farhill’s romantic interest in her became clear.

Catherine Herries, her father’s wife, raised her as though she were her own daughter. Catherine was one of Mary Hamilton’s closest friends and Herries would write her own messages in Catherine’s letters to Hamilton. She would also write her step-mother's letters on her behalf when Catherine was unwell. In 1793 Herries married Captain Edward James Foote, Catherine’s brother. The couple had a son and two daughters. In 1801-2, when her husband was away in India, Herries had relations with Owen Jones and became pregnant with his child (who died as an infant in the Spring of 1803). Foote divorced her in 1803 so he could remarry. There was a court case, which Foote won — he was entitled to £5000. The divorce meant Herries and her step-mother became estranged from each other. Herries died in 1835.

He already had two illegitimate children, who Glover liked and attended to. Hamilton was a close friend of Glover’s and Glover confided in her about this. Glover's sympathy towards Halsey's children may relate to her own experience of having step-mother, Eleanor Glover (née Lentos), who treated Glover as a daughter. Glover’s father passed away in 1785 and left her his papers. Following this, she dedicated her time to getting his work published. She died in 1819.

She had one brother; Phillip, who was the Equerry to King George III from 1779. She dedicated most of her life to working at the Royal Court with the Royal Children. She was well-liked in the Royal Household and seems to have been much more popular amongst the Royal children than her counterpart, Miss Gomm. Although she never married or had children, she established a household with Miss Gomm to look after the children of her brother, William Gomm, after his death. Martha died in 1816. Like Mary Hamilton, Martha was a sub-governess, the two continued to correspond frequently after Mary left court. They often sent letters with gossip as well as advice on royal etiquette.

In 1761, along with Elizabeth Juliana Schwellenberg, she accompanied (the soon to be) Queen Charlotte from Germany to England, for her wedding to King George III. From 1778 Hagedorn was the second Keeper of the Queen’s robes, still working alongside Schwellenberg. Hagerdorn left the position in 1786 as she was unwell and her eyesight was deteriorating. Her successor, Frances Burney, was supposedly warned of the cruelty Schwellenberg displayed towards Hagedorn, and told Hagerdorn's poor eyesight was a result of Schwellenberg’s insistence that the windows stay down when they travelled together, no matter the weather conditions. Hagerdorn died in 1789.

In 1789 Ramus was dismissed during the King’s illness, supposedly due to offensive curiosity about ‘his majesty’s looks and gestures’. There were also rumours that Princess Elizabeth was secretly married to Ramus and had given birth to his child — however this is most likely just gossip. After Ramus was dismissed he went to the East Indies. He died in 1792.

In 1761 she was selected by Queen Charlotte to accompany her from Mecklenburg-Strelitz to Great Britain for her wedding. Once in Great Britain, she became the keeper of robes to the queen, as well as a woman of the bedchamber. She held much influence at the Court, and many other staff saw her as a gatekeeper to Queen Charlotte and her patronage, which led to antagonistic relationships with several other staff (including, famously, with Frances Burney). She died in 1797. Although a controversial figure, she and Mary Hamilton wrote to each other from time to time and appear to have got on well. After Mary Hamilton left Court, there are letters from Juliana dated from 1789, passing on royal gossip and news.
