Christened: 15 Mar 1835 at Bedford St Cuthbert.

Appears in 1881 census as living with wife Charlotte (? Marriage dates?) and 3 children at 21 Drapery, Northampton. 1894 lived at 36 St Michaels Mount and

in 1903 at 9 Adams Ave, Northampton. Appears in 1911 Census living in Northampton.

The following extracts of press articles appear in the Northampton Reference Library: "We deeply regret to record the death of Mr Frederick Covington, J.P.,

which took place at his residence, Adams Avenue, Northampton, last evening, in his 82nd year. He had suffered from heart trouble for a considerable time,

and about three months ago had a serious attack which kept him indoors for some time, but he recovered sufficiently to ride out practically every day.

At the beginning of this week, however, he had another severe attack, and his doctor suggested that he should have a few days' rest. Just after four o'clock

yesterday afternoon he rang the bell, and his youngest daughter, on going upstairs, found him anticipating another seizure. This actually came soon after his

eldest daughter (Anne Jane) arrived home from school (where she was headmistress), and he died in her arms a few minutes later.

Mr Covington was born at Bedford in 1835, and came to Northampton on April 14, 1848, when he was apprenticed to Mr Philip Barnard, a tailor in the

Drapery. He commenced business on his own account in 1870 on the Wellingborough Road and afterwards carried on business in the Drapery and later in

Abington Street, retiring about twenty years ago.

As a boy at Bedford he attended the famous Bunyan Meeting, and when he came to Northampton he at once associated himself with College Street Chapel.

At the age of 15 he became a member, and two years later began his long and faithful career as a local preacher. With the exception of a period of some six

or eight weeks in 1890, during which time he was laid asise owing to an accident, he was in continuous service as a preacher for 56 years, and was never

known, for any reason, to miss an appointment. For many years after he undertook this work it was his rule to walk out from Northampton to the villages where

appointments had to be kept, and Mr Covington would often walk out eight miles or more, preach two sermons, and walk back at night.

To continue his work, without intermission, in all weathers, and frequently when tired and weary and worried with the week's labours, is a proof of sincerity and

devotion than which there could be none greater. Mr Covington will long be remembered with affection by the village churches of Northamptonshire. In 1910,

when he had been preaching for over 56 years, the Northamptonshire Village Preachers' Association presented him with a purse of gold in recognition of his

long labours. He was for many years the Treasurer of the Association. He was the senior deacon of College Street, being appointed in 1892, and was made a

life member of the diaconate several years ago. In 1903 he was President of the Northamptonshire Baptist Association.

Mr Covington was of that order of public men who do not make their public duties subordinate to private business. Within a few years of commencing

shopkeeping on his own account he was a member of the Town Council and the School Board, as well as one of the most active of local politicians. This

meant that having long given all his Sundays to toilsome work for others, he now - judged by ordinary standards, unable to afford it - spent a great deal of his

week-day time in municipal service. In politics he was a Radical of the straitest Nonconformist tyre. He was a Liberationist who had learned from Edward Miall,

and when, in 1870, education became a municipal function, he approached the new problems from that standpoint.

In the divisions in the local Liberal party which were caused by the intervention of Charles Bradlaugh in Northampton politics, Mr Covington remained for some

years with the section that included not only all the moderate Liberals, but many advanced politicians whose opposition to the new-comer was due to his

Freethinking in religion. At the by-election after the death of Charles Gilpin in 1874, the official Liberal candidate was William Fowler, a Quaker banker. He

was too moderate for Northampton, and Mr Covington, with many others went over to Brandlaugh, who polled nearly half the Liberal vote. The total Liberal

strength was 3,602, but the splitting of this between two candidates left Merewther, the Conservative, at the top of the poll with 2,171.

Pickering Phipps had already won one seat at the General Election earlier in the same year; and for the next six years Northampton had two Conservative

members. This example of the folly of division, and the wonderful enthusiasm which Gladstone roused in his campaigns of the later '70s, brought the

Northampton Liberals together in 1880, when Labouchere and Bradlaugh were returned at the head of the poll. In the fierce controversies that followed the

refusal of the House of Commons to allow Mr Bradlaugh to take his seat, Mr Covington took an active part. Later he was for eleven years the local

representative - almoner was the precise description of his functions - of Labouchere; and it was to him that the famous member sent his letter of resignation

just before the General Election of 1906.


Mr Covington was a facile and vigorous platform speaker, and no one was more often heard at local meetings.

Mr Covington's municipal service was done as a representative of the old East Ward. He was first elected in 1874 with Mr W. Jones as his Liberal colleague;

the defeated Conservatives were Mr H.P. Markham and Mr R. Howes. Three years with the late Sir Philip Manfield as colleague, he was badly beaten - both

the Conservatives (Mr R. Howes and Mr T. Wetherall) were returned by large majorities.

Two years later, when Mr W.J. Peirce and Mr T. Wetherall were Conservative candidates, he failed a second time, being third in the poll, with Mr. W.C.

Hollowell at the bottom. In the next year he beat Mr Wetherall by two votes. He then held the seat for nine years, and the East Ward came to be regarded as a

Liberal stronghold. In 1884 he was appointed Chairman of the Water Committee of the Town Council at a time of a terrible drought, which threatened to result

in a panic. He successfully pointed out a practical way out of the difficulty and was really the principal man in directing a very difficult undertaking, that has now

resulted in giving Northampton a pure and copious supply of Adam's ale.

On Wednesday 10th November 1887 he was duly elected Mayor of Northampton. His election was seconded by the leader of the local Conservative party, Mr

James Berry, and carried unanimously. At the time a press article read as follows: "Mr Covington is admittedly not quite the stamp of Mayor Northamptonians

were accustomed to look for a generation ago. But if his social position is not particularly significant, it is unquestioned that in ability and energy he is at least

the equal of his Radical colleagues.

Even in the old days when he was a humble anti-vaccination agitator in wagons on the Market Square, he was among his own class regarded as a man of light

and leading, and his popularity with the extremities has never been in jeopardy since he boldly threw his religious scruples to the wind and took his stand on

the Bradlaugh platform. His allegiance was rather sorely tried when Mr Bradlaugh and Mrs Besant were being prosecuted in connection with the sale of a

notorious book, but time healed his injured feelings, and of late years he has only been regarded as second to Messrs Gurney and Adams in favouritism with

the advanced politicians of Northampton."

Mr Covington had joined the School Board in 1874 and remained a member till Mr Balfour's Act transferred education administration to the Town and County

Councils. For many years he was Chairman or Vice-Chairman of the Board, and the work was the part of his public duties which appealed to him most. It

brought many fierce controversies, in which he played a foremost part.

Older readers will remember the contention about the proposed establishement of an Industrial School in Northampton. The late Mr Wetherell was the leading

advocate for the institution; Mr Covington led the opposition, and when, at the election which came at this time, he was placed at the head of the poll, it was

admitted that public opinion had settled the matter.

After the passing of the Balfour Education Act, Mr Covington declined, as a magistrate, to join in enforcing its provisions, and he himself became a passive

register. He was appointed a Justice of the Peace in 1893, and except Mr William Mills (appointed in 1885), he was the senior member of the Borough

Bench." To this day has a street in Northampton named after him.

Mar: 7 Jul 1853 at Bedford to Joy, Charles Edward . 2nd Mar: 8 Jun 1863 at Woolwich to Foote, Joseph . Christened: 6 Mar 1831 at Bedford St Paul. Info

updated by Paul Reid, Apr 2012 - "Charlotte Ann Covington (2456) was, I believe, my great-great-grandmother on my mother's side.

I'm relying on research done by an uncle and a cousin (his son), now sadly both deceased. Unfortunately I don't have access to their records but I do have a

copy of the tree created by my cousin. (In addition, as I live in France, I don't have easy access to parish records etc, so I have to rely a lot on the Internet and

on other people's research, with all the risk of errors!)

According to that tree, Charlotte married Joseph Foot (or Foote), a shoemaker, at the parish church of St Thomas, Woolwich, on 8 June 1863. They had at

least six children from 1864 to 1878, including Alice Jessie Maud who was born in Islington on 20 April 1866. As stated on your site, Charlotte's parents were

William (2460) and Rebecca (4251). Rebecca's surname was Sabey.

I have discovered that Joseph married again, in 1885 , to a Mary Winifred Shuttleworth, so Charlotte must have died before then. FreeBMD gives a death in

Q4 1880 but the age is incorrect by 10 years.

However, it also seems that Charlotte first married a Charles Edward Joy on 8 July 1853 at St Peter's, Bedford (IGI) and they were living in Bedford in 1861

(census). There is no mention of any children in that census.

Alice Jessie Maud Foot married William Daniel Thwaites at Islington Register Office on 17 September 1888. They had two sons, William Herbert born 1889

and Ernest Norman born 1891, my maternal grandfather.

I have not yet published my tree on the Internet as I am not yet sufficiently confident of its accuracy - sadly, my cousin died of a brain tumour last year and it

seems that he increasingly made mistakes with his tree. I have published my wife's tree on Genes Reunited and I plan to merge mine into it some time in the

future, but there is still quite a bit of work to do." (reod.paul@wanadoo.fr)

4997. Died: 3 Dec 1895 at Bedford Prison aged 27. Went to Hapur Trust Boy's Elemenray School, Bedford 1876 to 17 Jan 1882.

Known as Arthur. Committed at Midland Assizes for the murder of his cousin, Effie Jane Burgin on 14 Nov 1895. Found guilty and hung for the offence.

Clothiers Assistant.

Samantha Anderson recounts the story; "The first item out of the Midland Assizes Depositions box, held at the Public Records Office in Chancery Lane, was

an architect's plan of the ground floor of No.33 Wellington Street, Bedford. It showed a front room, a middle room, a back room, a passage and a room beyond

the back room marked "coats".

The house was occupied by George Francis Covington, his wife and their son, Arthur, a clothiers assistant. Also in the box were the witnesses' statements in

the matter of Arthur Covington who was accused of wilfully murdering Effie Jane Burgin on the 13th June 1895 in the middle room of his father's house. From

the statement of William Francis Covington, his brother, a printer who lived in King's Place, Bedford, it would appear that Arthur was having some medical

problems. He suffered from bouts of depression, had pains in his spine and had trouble sleeping. He may also have been losing his eyesight.

Effie was around 20 years old and in service, she often used to visit Arthur and his parents on her evenings off. She was a chatty little thing and they were all

very fond of her. On the night in question she had been walking with her friend, Elizabeth Meeks, before going to see her aunt and uncle. After about 15

minutes, during which time she had been her usual cheery self, she asked her uncle the time and on hearing that it was nearly ten, she kissed her aunt and

wished her "Goodnight", shook her uncle's hand and wished him the same before going into the middle room with Arthur, prior to taking her leave. Only a

minute or two later a loud bang was heard. George thought at first that something was wrong with the lamp, but when two more reports rang out he rushed into

the middle room to find Effie lying on the floor half under the table and Arthur with a revolver in his hand. Arthur had shot her three times, once in the jaw, once in

the back of her head and once through the neck.

Having killed Effie, Arthur reached out tenderly to her and was heard to murmer something like "My wife, my wife". He asked his father if he might kiss her,

which he did, three times. He then put his arm around his father's shoulder and said "My dear father, my dear father".

Neighbours in the street had heard the revolver and in no time at all the house was full of people. The constable went to take the revolver from Arthur who

quietly said "It does not need much taking". He was committed to the Midland Assizes on Thursday 14th November where he said "I did not do it through

malice. I call no witnesses". He was found guilty, sentenced to death and on 3rd December 1895 he was hanged at Bedford Prison".

The Times, 04 Dec 1895, Page 7 reported "EXECUTION Arthur Covington, 27, was executed at Bedford yesterday for the murder of his cousin, Effie

Burgin, 20, in June last. The execution was carried out privately. The High Sheriff refused admission to the Press, and all the prison officials declined to give

any details. Billington was the executioner."

Plot 1, Row B, Grave 16.

Interesting e-mail received Feb 2004:

My name is David Holmes, a retired teacher and I live at 151, Clifton Road, Rugby. Some years ago while digging at the bottom end of my garden I unearthed,

amongst other things, a small bronze plaque known as a Dead Man's Penny. These were given to all next of kin of those killed in the First World War. The

name on the plaque was Reginald Covington.

Although a little puzzled as to what it was doing buried in the garden I cleaned it up and put it aside as I was very busy and too pre-occupied to do any more

about it. About four years ago, in a moment of curiosity and now with the aid of the internet I typed the name into the CWCG site and got some details on

Reginald. He was in the Royal Field Artillery and was killed, aged 24, in the last year of the war. His grave is at Houchin Cemetary near Bethune in Northern

France.

A couple of hours work in Rugby Library revealed that his parents had a shop at 28 North Street, indeed there is a photograph in the archive of his father

outside the shop. The Rugby Gazettes for around the 1920's show that they also had property in another part of the town and that the Misses Covington had

shops in Clifton Road. This was about as far as I got and then left it at that.

Obviously there is a Rugby connection but how did the plaque come to be in my garden and more of a mystery why? It would be an interesting thing to find out

and a very nice thing to return the plaque to someone to whom it might mean a lot.

Yours etc, David Holmes.

He writes; "Our branch of the Covington clan unfortunately does not have a large fund of documentary history, but the verbal tradition is as follows; Apparently,

one branch of the family emigrated to the United States either with, or fairly soon after, the Pilgrim Fathers in Mayflower. After briefly settling in New England,

they moved North West towards the Great Lakes, before travelling South towards the Mississippi and Louisiana. Eventually, some sailed across to Jamaica

(possibly on a slave boat) and established sugar plantations. The family returned to England about 100 years ago (circa 1880), settling in Gosport,

Hampshire." (Personal Letter, April 1989)(Letter from Mrs Doris L. Covington, May 1989)
