Subject: [HARVEY] William Beauchamp Bagenal Harvey

We are tracking the line of Harveys descending from William Beauchamp Bagenal Harvey of Ireland with a particular interest in the connection to Beauchamp Bagenal Harvey, the barrister who was executed in 1798 at Wexford Ireland for his part in the United Irishman Rebellion.

We know BB Harvey had two children out of wedlock, James and William and that he had two brothers, James and John.

We have not yet established the link however though the timing and the fringe evidence is tantalizing.

Any help appreciated.


B Circa 1782 or 1792 though various sources generally agree he was born in Ireland.

D 1832 or 1838.

There is a record of a William Harvey, 50, dying at Drummond St. Hospital in Edinburgh in 1832. Cause unknown but it was during a major cholera epidemic. This would put his birth date at 1782.

Another 1838 record lists WBBH dying of a bowel obstruction at 6 Palace St. Westminster. However the death certificate lists his age as 46 which would put hit birth year as 1792.

(Note that there’s a death certificate for James Harvey also the same year in Westminster which has his age as 22 but it would have been 27. WBB had a son James)

We do know from the record of his daughter Fanny’s marriage to William Harris that he was dead by 1841.

Personal There is a reference to him living in Dublin, Ireland 03 APR 1810 from online records.

Where he fits in:

Probably not a child of WBB Harvey (1) but somehow related given how he named his children and that two members of this family were living together in England at one point.

The 1881 Census record shows Mary McIntosh (nee Harvey) 28 yrs. old, and Francis Crause (nee Harvey) 30 yrs living at 3 St. Marks St. in London.

They are the daughters of WBBH (2) and Cecilia Philadelphia.

The same Census shows Francis Crause (nee Harris) 67 yrs. old living at the same address. She was the sister-in-law of Frances Margaret Sharpe Harvey, the sister of our John Harvey, widow of Capt. Harris (lost at sea 1853). Frances (Fanny) Harries died in Madras, Aug. 31, 1852, which not so coincidentally is where John Harvey, her brother was living at the time. Perhaps he took her in after her husband died.

(We’re trying to figure out the blood connection but one theory is that he is the sixth child of William BB Harvey Sr. (a or b) who is thought to have a connection to Dublin given the naming of his children and his age however there’s a reference to his father as Fortesque which confuses the issue)

This does proves WBBH (1) and WBBH (2) families knew each other. Though there’s yet to be found a blood connection?
