   The History of Harrold - William Covington, Harrold Clockmaker

   "William Covington was perhaps one of the best known of the Harrold clockmakers. This cottage industry developed in the Eighteenth Century when  local

   craftsmen set up small workshops or worked at home. Sometimes it was farm workers who made good use of the winter months. Some were apprenticed

   elsewhere in Bedfordshire and some even had apprentices themselves.

  

   William Covington was not born in Harrold but in nearby Turvey in 1719. His father was Peter Covington (1679 to 1744) the Turvey blacksmith, a trade that

   went back in the family over at least 3 further generations to late Elizabethan times. The family business of working with metal was obviously good preparation

   for working with much smaller and precision parts of making clocks.

  

   William’s mother was  Judith Williamott. In 1743 he married Elizabeth Killingworth (born in Cold Brayfield in 1718) in Turvey church . Soon after this the couple

   moved to Harrold where each of their four children were baptised in St Peter’s Church between 1744 and 1756. We do not know why William moved from

   Turvey to Harrold, but it may be that the clockmaking industry was already embedded there or it could have been that other Covingtons were already living in

   the village and had been for more than 150 years. However, we do not know what was the relationship between the Turvey and Harrold  branches of the

   Covington family. William Covington’s namesake had left Harrold to become an early settler in the colony of Virginia a century before.

  

   William obviously gained a reputation for his clockmaking skills and his workmanship was enduring . One clock is still to be found in private ownership in the

   village, another is to be seen in the West End Baptist Meeting House in nearby Stevington, a parliament clock clearly marked “William Covington Harrold” and

   we have heard of others being bought or sold.

  

   After about fourteen years in Harrold, William moved in about 1758 to Hitchin in Hertfordshire and eventually to Stony Stratford, Buckinghamshire. He carried

   on his trade in these places and was succeeded in the business by his son John in the early part of the Nineteenth Century.

  

   The parliament clock was made by William Covington c. 1750 and has stood in the West End Baptist Meeting Church in Stevington for over two and a half

   centuries."

   Additional notes supplied by Mark Davies, author of "The Abingdon Waterturnpike Murder" - a book detailing the crime fro which Gyles Freeman Covington

   was eventually hung for committing writes:

  

   "was the first of the London-based Covington family to move to Abingdon, and must have done so soon after his marriage, to Elizabeth whose surname is

   unknown. [Yet, could she perhaps have been a Freeman? This information is not in the book, but the few references to Freeman in the St Helen's Church,

   Abingdon’s records are tantalising. Elizabeth, the d. of Margaret (? - 1761) and Giles (? – 1762, b. Culham), was c. on 11 May 1707. Both the names Giles

   and Freeman (and Elizabeth), and the Culham connection are persuasive.]

   The Borough of Abingdon’s Minutes (Borough of Abingdon Minutes) of 21 May 1773 show that Roger Covington, taylor, received a loan of £10, with Bryant

   Spokes (breeches maker) and John Brewer (staymaker) as his sureties. He paid back the first instalment of £2 in 1776, and had paid the whole loan off by

   1784 (Abingdon Chamberlain's Accounts).

  

   At some point between 1768 (when the property was in the occupancy of someone else) and 1775, the Covington family lived on the east side of Butcher Row,

    Borough of Abingdon Minutes 24 Mar 1775 showing that Roger had formerly resided there. He had returned by 1783, Borough of Abingdon Minutes 1 Jan

   1783 showing him to be in occupation of “a messuage or tenement and shop with the appurtenances in the Butcherow on the east side” – which he still

   occupied at his death in 1798.

  

   In 1780 Roger was elected to the prestigious post of Bellman (Borough of Abingdon Minutes 21 Jun 1780), taking the place of the widow Elizabeth Couling,

   “who is taken into hospital”. The role of Bellman was a responsible and varied one. The duties were listed in full when Richard Gilkes (Giles’ brother-in-law)

   assumed the post in September 1798. The 17 responsibilities, most remunerated on a case by case basis, included attending the Mayor at church on

   Sundays and other public events; attending the Borough Court; attending the Quarter Sessions; making public proclamations in the town and beyond, “to turn

   all vagrants out of town, and see they do not return”; to clean and light the corporation lights; to undertake a nightly watch, with an able bodied man; to clean the

   Corporation’s knives and forks; to clean and oil the fire engine; to clean and care for the Market House; to sweep the Bury every Tuesday morning round the

   Market House, and “to see that the scavenger do take the filth away”.

  

   When Roger was elected he signed a declaration agreeing “not to keep a common alehouse or sell ale, beer or any other strong liquor”, and was issued with a

    special coat, hat, and badge. Indeed, he made the coat himself, for which he was paid 4s (Abingdon Chamberlain's Accounts). The nature of this uniform is

   revealed in Borough of Abingdon Minutes 13 Jun 1783, when he was issued with “a new laced hat, a new cloke, and new coat, waistcoat, breeches and

   stockings of blue colour as formerly.”

  

   From 1780 (Abingdon Chamberlain's Accounts) he was paid a salary of £6 as Bellman, plus the £2 formerly paid to Couling, with an additional £1 10s “for

   turning vagrants out of town” and £7 10s for himself “and one able bodied man to assist him in the nightly watch one year and a half.” In addition through the

   1780s he received regular payments of 9s “for grinding knives”, 12s “for cleaning and oyling an engine” (for use against fires), £1 10s “for cleaning and lighting

    lamps”, and 6s “for cleaning knives and forks”. In Borough of Abingdon Minutes 1 Dec 1786 he was issued with a nine gallon bushel, in order to settle any

   disputes over measures of grain, the Corporation authorising him to receive 4d from the party proved to be in the wrong. The Bellman’s duties also included

   procuring various quantities (“assizes”, in the sense of ‘assessed’ quantities?) of bread every year (conveniently distributed by his oldest son, Edward), and

   payments for arranging bonfires.

  

   In March 1789 it was a bonfire with a difference. George III was a popular monarch, but subject to sudden and unpredictable bouts of mental illness. So JOJ

   was pleased to record on 14/3/1789 “the happy restoration of his Majesty’s health … and resumption of his royal authority”. It was the cue for celebrations on a

   national scale, and in Abingdon the event was marked “by the ringing of bells, bonfires and a general illumination, with many curious emblematical devices and

    every demonstration of zealous attachment.” Beer was distributed to the populace, and “that most false and execrable libel on Majesty, of Saturday last, in the

   Morning Herald, was consigned to be burnt publicly by the Common Cryer in the Marker Place.” The Cryer in question would have been Roger Covington,

   because another important role of the Bellman was to announce to a largely illiterate populace any new laws, borough regulations or other items of public

   interest. Hence, the various references in Abingdon Chamberlain's Accounts to “drawing cry and fair copy” expounding on such matters as “keeping the

   Sabbath” (1785), the “suppression of counterfeit halfpence” (1790), and “keeping dogs indoors“ and ”destroying mad dogs” (1791).

  

   Even with these seemingly endless calls on the Bellman’s time, day and night, he still managed to keep his needle busy, and was paid 10s in 1785 to replace


   his own “cloaths“ or uniform (Abingdon Chamberlain's Accounts). Roger Covington therefore obviously truly was the “industrious honest man” RMOG 10 Jan

   1791 called him. But even he was not without a streak of mischief. As “Hall-keeper of the County Court, Abingdon”, he was forced to make a public apology to

   twelve members of a jury (including the victualler and fellow tailor, John Giles) whom he had locked up “for the space of two hours after they had agreed on their

    verdict, and also did ridicule and laugh at said jury under their confinement”. (JOJ 19 Oct 1782).

  

   At the time of Roger’s death in 1798 (b. Culham 11 Sep 1798), the Covington family collectively owned numerous properties, including something called “the

   toll of the market”, a privilege presumably deriving from his role as Bellman (D/EP7 166). Why he chose to be buried in Culham, rather than St Helens, where

   he had worshipped, is not clear.

  

   If Roger hoped that moving to Abingdon would ensure an honest upbringing for his family, he was only partially right. His first three sons, Edward (1755 –

   1805), John (1757 - 1795?), and Thomas (1762 – 1838?) did well for themselves. His youngest son, Giles (1767 – 1791), of course, did not.

  

   By the time Giles Freeman, his youngest son, was c. on 12 Apr 1767, Roger seems to have achieved his freedom, although no record exists, and if so this no

   doubt influenced the choice of Giles’ middle name. Certainly the next year Roger was included for the first time amongst the 250 people eligible to vote in the

   election of that year (Gough Berks 3, fol. 27). This is the earliest reference to him being a tailor, and it is worth noting in passing that his political allegiances

   differed at that time from those of the father of his future daughter-in-law. Ballots were public affairs in those days, and whereas the glazier Thomas Gilkes

   voted for Nathaniel Bayley, Covington plumped for John Molton, the narrow winner."

  

   Subsequent to above a record of marriage in the Fleet Prison & Rules Of Fleet, London show Roger marrying Elizabeth King on 14 Oct 1749 which fits with a

   lot of other info.

   Additional notes supplied by Mark Davies, author of "The Abingdon Waterturnpike Murder" - a book detailing the crime for which Gyles Freeman Covington

   was eventually hung for committing, writes: "the oldest was chr 30 Jul 1755, and became a successful baker. He had a particular status, being entrusted to

   distribute the “bread for the poor” paid for out of Mr Royse’s Gift (a charitable bequest) from at least 1782, when the sum was £2 12s (ACA), through to the

   early 1800s. Edward was successful enough to be named amongst the select tradespeople of Abingdon to appear in the 1796 Universal British Directory.

  

   He married three times, or possibly four. His first wife, Elizabeth Stone (m.19 Aug 1781 StH), was b. at Marcham 4 May 1783 (w. of Edward); his second,

   Joanna Crook (m. 20 Feb 1785 StH) was b. StH 4 Dec 1792 (w. of Edward); and another Elizabeth survived him (ww b. Culham 14 May 1809), Edward

   himself having been b. 1 Mar 1805 at Culham (PRO will is dated 1803). Yet there seems also to have been another wife, Sara Rounds (m. 25 Nov 1793 StH),

   before Elizabeth. Presumably she and Edward divorced (assuming she is the same Sarah Covington “of Abingdon” who was b. at Culham aged 85 in 1835 –

   and whose will at PRO is dated that year) before the (undated) marriage to the second Elizabeth.

  

   But it is also possible that another Edward had appeared on the scene too by then. Despite these multiple marriages Edward had only one child, John, in

   1782 (c. 30 Jun 1782 StH), who went on to have seven children with Ann (of unknown surname, but presumably the Ann ’’of Abingdon” b. at Culham aged 73 in

    1852) between 1805 and 1814. These were: Elizabeth (c. 1804), Jane* (c. 1805), Susan (c. 1807, Mary Ann (c. 1809), Edward (c. 1811), Martha (c. 1812),

   and James (c. 1814), all at StN.

  

   The family’s recorded association with Culham begins with the burial of James (of no clear relationship) in 1785, a year when both Edward and his father paid

   rates on properties in Abingdon.

  

   * When Jane married in 1827, one of the witnesses was Sarah Covington."

   1782 at Abingdon to White, Frances 14199. Additional notes supplied by Mark Davies, author of "The Abingdon Waterturnpike Murder" - a book detailing the

   crime fro which Gyles Freeman Covington was eventually hung for committing writes: ", the second son of Roger and Elizabeth Covington was c. 1 Nov 1757

   (St Helen's Church, Abingdon), and was awarded £7 from Mr Mayott’s Charity to be apprentice to his father (Borough of Abingdon Minutes 5 Feb 1772). [John

    Mayott (? – 1703) had been a mercer, whose dyehouse and wharf was acquired by John Tomkins, founder of the Tomkins fortune, in the 17th century (Naylor).

    

  

   The Charity originated from the generosity of a descendant, Robert Mayott, and provided funds for clothing and education as well as apprenticeships. His

   school catered for ten Mayott and ten Provost pupils (both boys and girls), recommended by the Corporation.] John Covington married Frances White on 28

   Aug 1782 (St Helen's Church, Abingdon), but appears to have had no offspring. His wife may well have been another of the White family with innkeeping

   connections (see Shury) because John was an alehousekeeper from at least October 1787 (A/JQ1), and in 1796 was named in the Universal British Directory

   as the proprietor of a pub called The Chaise and Horses.

  

   It is presumably the same John, “from the Chaise and Pair, Culham” who was b. at St Nicholas Church, Abingdon in 1795, however".

    which Gyles Freeman Covington was eventually hung for committing writes: "the third son of Roger and Elizabeth, was c. 30 Nov 1762 (St Helen's Church,

   Abingdon). He and Edward ensured the Covington line by having six children with Susan (of unknown surname) between 1786 and 1805. These were James

   (c. 1786), Susan (c. 1798, b. 1803), Charles (c. 1800), William (c, 1802), Edward (c.1804), and Benjamin (c. 1805), all at StH. A seventh child, Henry s. of

   Thomas, was b. 1809 (StH).

  

   Like his brother, Thomas also benefitted from a £7 grant from Mr Mayott’s Charity (son of Roger), to enable him to take up an apprenticeship (BAM 28 Feb

   1775). Presumably he also trained as a tailor, because he seems certain to be the same Thomas who, when taking a 21 year lease on property in East St

   Helen’s Street in 1795, was described as a tailor of Shaftesbury Place (formerly running from 34 Aldersgate Street) Aldersgate, London (BAM 17 Jun 1795).

  

   Thomas obviously did well for himself in the family trade. In 1797 he owned six tenements in Abingdon which were sub-let to tenants (D/EP7 166), and BAM

   notes his possession of premises in Boar Street in 1803 and in Bury Lane in 1810. He maintained his dual interests till his death, supposed at 1838 from the

   date of his will (PRO), his address then being a London one, yet his description being “gentleman of Abingdon”.

   GYLES FREEMAN COVINGTON. Ref: 2736. Born: 1767- 1768 at Abingdon. Father: Roger, Father Ref: 3267. Mother: King, Elizabeth, Mother Ref: 4134. 

   Died: 7 Mar 1791 at Oxford Castle aged 23.  Mar: 5 Feb 1789 at Abingdon to Gilkes, Ann 4166. Also shown as Giles. Christened 12 April 1767 at St Helen's

   Church, Abingdon. Sailor. Spelling of name shown as Giles Covington on marriage records. Hung on 7 March 1791 at Oxford Castle for murder.

  

   "The murder victim, a Scottish pedlar named David Charteris, was on his way home to Toot Baldon from the Michaelmas Hiring Fair at Abingdon on the night

   of the 8 October 1787, when a bunch of thugs set about him with a hedge stake as he was climbing over a stile near Nuneham Wood. Later that week some

   chums from Toot Baldon discovered his body sitting upright in a ditch and when they pulled off his hat and wig they uncovered the grisly evidence of several

   hefty blows. Despite a reward of 70 guineas (more than most people earned in a year in those days!), nothing was heard of the crime for another three years.

  

  

   Then Richard Kilby was caught and flogged at Reading for deserting from the Berkshire Militia. the whip seems to have loosened his tongue and he offered to

   turn King's Evidence and confessed to his part in the Charteris crime in return for a Royal Pardon. According to him. it was Charles Evans Shury who

   suggested robbing David Charteris to himself, John Castle and Giles Covington. Shury struck the first blow, then Covington joined in and helped finish the poor

    pedlar off. After they returned to Abindgon, they went to Shury's house and he gave them 10 guineas in gold and silver each, saying: "Now, my boys, let us be

   true to each other"

  

   On 16 July 1790, Shury and Castle were tried at the Midsummer Assizes in Oxford for the pedlar's murder. A Thames bargeman called Bossom said Castle

   "had some time ago confessed to him that he had no rest, night or day, from the horror of having been concerned in the murder of the Scotchman". The report

   of the trial in Jackson's Oxford Journal is rather confusing, and the only evidence concerning Shury, apart from Kilby's confession, implied he thought Kilby was

   out to "do" him by blaming him for the crime. However the jury had no hesitation in finding both men guilty and the judge, after a stern lecture, directed them to

   be executed and their bodies to be delivered to the surgeons, to be dissected and anatomised.

  

   Meanwhile Giles Covington was at sea. As soon as his ship docked in London at the beginning of 1791, two Bow Street runners brought him to Oxford and on

   4 March he also stood trial for the pedlar's murder. Clearly he felt the same way about Kilby as Shury. It was reported that his behaviour was so audacious

   during the trial whilst Kilby was giving evidence, that he made a sudden spring towards him and attempted a blow at his head.  The jury found him guilty on the

   same evidence as the other two and on 7 March 1791, "a prodigiuous multitude of spectators" watched his execution from the tower at the entrance to Oxford

   Castle, now part of Oxford Prison. He mounted the scaffold dressed in his sailor's jacket and trousers with white gloves and a white hatband and before

   motioning the hangman to proceed, tossed down a paper. It was a semi-literate letter addressed to local magistrate Christopher Willoughby. "I hope you and

   your family will live to find that Giles Freeman Covington died innocent and then I hope you would relieve the widow that is left behind if Bedlam is not to be her

   doom"

  

   His body was cut down and delivered to the University Reader in Anatomy, Dr Pegge. The following day he carved it up at a public lecture in the Anatomy

   School at Christ Church College. He then decided that Giles Covington would make a useful teaching aid. His bones were wired together and his skeleton

   eventually found its way to the University Museum in Parks Road in 1860. It stood in a glass case for more than 100 years, labelled simply Englishman, before

   being relegated to the Bone Room. It may have stayed there had not a member of staff spotted the inscription Giles Covington on the lower jaw and passed it

   on to the Museum of Oxford, where it is on display today, along with Kilby's confession and the letter Giles Covington tossed down from the gallows.

  

   A detailed dossier on his case has been compiled by Miss Evelyn Wallace, an attendant at the Museum of Oxford, and on Thursday 7 March 1991 (the 200th

   anniversary of his execution) a petition was launched in an attempt to get the Queen to grant a royal pardon. Signatures will be sent to the Royal Prerogative of

   Mercy Division at the Home Office. A spokesman for the Home Office has said "Normally cases like this involve people who are still alive and in prison. But the

    rules are still the same. Miss Wallace will have to produce new evidence to show the original conviction was unsafe" (I.G.I London/Berkshire) (Letter from Miss

    Evelyn Wallace, March 1991)(Press cuttings of articles by A.J.McIlroy, Daily Telegraph & Don Chapman, Oxford).

  

   A further article appeared in nthe Daily Telegraph on 16 Jul 2001 citing the efforts of the Oxford Museum's curator, John Lange, to secure a full Christian burial

   for Giles. "He has already secured the agreement in principle of Wolvercote Cemetery in Oxford to bury Giles, but also hopes to clear Giles' name by Royal

   Pardon"

    as Jas. A Lighterman & Coal Merchant. In 1823 lived at 19 Guildford St, Southwark, London. Died at 15 Bloomfield Terrace, Pimlico.

  

   Lighterman at, in 1833, 5 Harp Lane. In 1841, 1 Warkworth Terrace, Commercial Rd East.  Possibly related to Richard Covington, Coal Merchants, London

   1823 and to Henry Covington (see entries)  (Post Office Directory London 1833, 1841, 1846)

  

   The London Gazette 10 Jun 1851 reports: "Notice is hereby given, that the Partnership heretofore subsisting between James Covington and James Covington

    the younger, la the business of Wharfingers and Lightermen, at MacclesSeld-street, City-road, and at Lime-Louse, London, under the style or firm of James

   Covington and Son, was dissolved by mutual consent, as on~and from the 1st day of October last; and-that all debts owing to or • by the said late firm will be

   received and paid by the said James Covingtpn the younger, and James Worihington Maude, by whom the business will in future be ^carried on, under tbe

   style or firm of James Covington and Company. As witness our hands this 30th day of April 1851. - Jas Covington, Jas Covington jun, James W Maude"

  

   Further info supplied by Tricia Steel in March 2011 refers to press cuttings in The Times. She states "You make reference under James Covington, father and

   son (5254 & 540) to the partnership of Covington & Son being taken over by James Maude.  This would appear to have been a very suspect operation, with

   James Maude ending up with all the debts of the partnership, and the Covingtons taking away much of the plant and selling it for their own ends.  It seems that

   Maude was taken for a ride, and, while the judge was sympathetic, nothing could be done – see the attached cuttings from the Times.  I’m not sure how I feel

   about having these crooks as my ancestors, but I expect it’s the same for most people." (tricia_steel@hotmail.com)
