In his will (PCC, prob 11/1525) dated 15th July 1807 he leaves a life
interest in 1400 to his father, Christopher Fysh, and after his, the
father's, death, to any posthumous child which may be born to his
wife. If none, the amount to be divided between his nephew and
niece, Hewitt Fysh Turner and his sister Harriet Turner when they
attain the age of 21 years or at marriage for the latter.

He also mentions Mr Smith, his uncle, executor, and his wife's uncle,
Mr J[ohn] Neale.

Elizabeth Ann

1809 -

children of Hewitt and Elizabeth Ann Fysh

Frederick Fysh 7 born 1807
born 24 November 1807, St Gyles, Camberwell, Surrey 8
baptized 26 July 1826, Saint Michael, Cambridge, Cambridge, England 9
buried 23 September 1880, St Peter, Walgrave, Northamptonshire 10

Notes: He was baptised 7 December 1807 in the Meeting House, Maze
Pond, Southwark and then again as an adult into the Anglican church
on the 26 July 1826 at Saint Michael, Cambridge.

He was admitted a pensioner at Queens College, Cambridge Univesity
on 22 Feb 1828, hatriculated 1828, BA 1832, MA 1835.

He was in Holy Orders and was the author of:
Catechism of the Apocoalypse
A lyrical version fo the Psalms etc.

Between 1840 - 1847 he lived at 2 Duke Street, Bath and in 1856 at
6 Lower Terrace, Torquay.

In the Census of 1861 he was described as being aged 53, a clergyman
with[out] the cure of souls, living at 4 Sion Row, Twickenham, in the
family of his cousin, Samuel Chase, solicitor, of that address. ( I am
indebted for this information to Laurence Chase)

JPG Fysh' statement, in the article mentioned at the end of this note,
that Frederick is listed in the Census of 1861 as being in Waldegrave
aged 68, is thus proved mistaken (as that age might of its own suggest)
but in 1871 he was living as a lodger in Waldgrave. Northamptonshire,
aged 63, a clergyman of the Church of England without cure of souls,
and one wonders equally over his assertion that he later emigrated
to Australia.

Kathleen Christmas in her Fysh family tree chart drawn up in 1983 gives
him a daughter, Jane Fysh, with a son Hewitt Turner, no details or
sources mentioned. This seems most unlikely.

Venn's Alumni Cantabrigiense give his date of death as 1867.
