EDWARD PURSIL . .

JOHN ISHAM . . . ///////////

" Agreed that Mr. John Isham be elected Organist of
the Parish Church in the room of Mr. Green, and that
he have a yearly salary of Fifty pounds payd him out
of the Bells and Palls."

Here again Edward Purcell was unsuccessful, Mr.
John Isham obtaining eleven votes.

After the death of Daniel Purcell the following
advertisement appeared in the Post Boy, Saturday, 26th
April, 1718 :

" Musick this day published, Being a choice Collec-
tion, & c ., to which is added all the Psalm tunes by
the late Mr. Daniel Purcell."

This work was probably the curious collection still
extant bearing the following title : " The Psalms Set
full for the Organ or Harpsichord as they are Plaid in
Churches and Chappels in the maner given out ; as also
with their interludes of great Variety, by Mr. Dan 1
Purcell, late Organist of St. Andrew's, Holbourn."

Daniel Purcell is credited by Hawkins as having been
more skilful and successful as a punster than as a
composer. Of his puns we have now no evidence upon
which to form a judgment, but his music exists to show
that the historian's verdict is not always to be relied on.

Of the children of Henry Purcell mention has

H

already been made : he had six in all, three of them,
John Baptista, Thomas, and Henry, died in infancy,
during the lifetime of their father; and it is probable that
a fourth child, Mary Peters, survived him but a few
months. The daughter Frances, who was born in 1688,
outlived both her parents; hpr mother immediately
before her death, in February, 1706, nominated Frances
as her executrix and residuary legatee : accordingly she
proved the will on the 4th July following. She married
Leonard Welsted, a poet and dramatist, son of the Eev.
Leonard Welsted, Eector of Abington, Northamptonshire.
Welsted had been a King's scholar at Westminster
School, from whence he was elected to Trinity College,
Cambridge. " When very young he married the daughter
of Henry Purcell, the celebrated musician, and obtained
an appointment in the Secretary of State's office." 1

The young couple were of the same age, and must
have married when nineteen, as the register of St.
Margaret's, Westminster, records the baptism of their
daughter Frances on the 2nd of September, 1708. 2
Mrs. Welsted died in 1724, not having attained the age
of her celebrated father, and the daughter died in 1726,
aged eighteen.

Purcell's youngest son, Edward, born in 1689, was
the only one who survived him, and like his father, was
but six years old when he became an orphan. His
mother had promised her dying husband carefully to
attend to the child's education, a promise she conscien-

his wife."

tiously and affectionately kept for ten years, until 1706,
when she died, leaving the lad of sixteen to the guidance
of his sister Frances, who was but two years older. The
children, however, possessed many influential friends,
and in the following year, 1707, Frances married.
We know nothing more of Edward's doings for a few
succeeding years, but it is probable that he married in

1710, as the register-book of St. Margaret's, West-
minster, contains the entry of a baptism on " May 4th,

1711, of Frances, daughter of Edward and Anne
Purcell, born on 19th April." The register-book of
St. Hartin-in-the-Fields for 1716 contains a baptismal
entry which seems to refer to a son of Edward Purcell :
"Dec. 11, Henry, son of Edward and Anne Purcell,
born 26 Nov." In 1717 Edward was a candidate for
the organist's place of St. Andrew's, Holborn, as I have
shown when speaking of Daniel Purcell ; but Edward
was, as we have seen, unsuccessful, not only on that
occasion, but also in 1718 when he again applied for the
appointment. In 1726, on the 8th of July, he was
made organist of St. Margaret's, Westminster, and it is
said that he succeeded his father as organist of St.
Clement's, Eastcheap. In 1738 he was enrolled
amongst the first list of members and founders of
the " Society of Musicians," now known as the " Eoyal
Society of Musicians," and it is supposed that he
died in 1740, as in that year he ceased to be organist
of St. Margaret's, Westminster. His successor was
appointed on the 6th of August, 1740.

He had a son, the date of whose birth I have not
been able to trace, who was named Edward Henry.



108 THE GEEAT MUSICIANS.

Hawkins blunders here again : he says Edward Purcell
" was succeeded by his son Henry, who had been bred
up in the King's Chapel under Mr. Gates. This Henry
became also organist of St. Edmund the King, London,
and after that of St. John, Hackney. He died about
twenty-five years ago. 1 His father was a good organist,
but himself a very indifferent one."

The statement is brimful of errors, as we shall see.

Chamberlaine's Magnce Britannia Notitia, 1737, on
page 219, gives the "children's names" of the Chapel
Koyal, 2 and there we find Edward Henry Purcell. The
correctness of the name is confirmed by an entry in a
magnificent book of music now in the Queen's library
in Buckingham Palace. The volume is wholly in Henry
Purcell's autograph. It had belonged to Edward Purcell,
and contains an entry in his hand : " Score booke
Anthems and Welcome Songs, and other songs, all by
my father." At the other end of the book is an autograph
inscription, " E d H. Purcell, Grandson to the Author
of this book."

In 1753, August llth, the vestry of St. John, Hackney,

" Resolved and agreed that y* place of organist of the
Parish be and is declared vacant ; agreed that the sallary
of y e organist of the Parish be settled.

" Organist his duty. That the salary of the organist
shall for the future be 20 by the year, and that for his
said salary he shall attend all Sundays in the year, and
on all days whenever a sermon shall be preached, Fast-
days excepted, and that on every Sunday throughout the
year a voluntary shall be played after both morning and
evening service."

1 1750. The master was Bernard Gates.



PURCELL. 109

" Ordered, that an advertisement be published in the
paper called the Daily Advertiser, that the place of
Organist of this Parish is vacant, and that all persons
who are willing to be candidates for the same may apply
to Mr. Ch.- warden Barnard."

" On the 22nd Sept., 1753, the candidates appeared
separately before the Vestry, ' and a Vestry was held to
choose an organist.' Candidates being

MR. WILLIAM WARD 2

MR. RICHARD Low

MR. THOMAS ARCHER 1

MR. MOSES PATENCE

" The majority being for Mr. Ed. Hen. Purcell, he was
declared Organist of this Parish till Easter next."

The parish books show that he was re-elected annually
down to Easter Tuesday, April 24, 1764, when there is
an entry

" Complaint having been made against Edward
Henry Purcell the present organist. Resolved That
the Vestry Clerk do write to the said Edward Henry
Purcell and acquaint him that the Vestry insists on his
being regular in his attendance, and that he do give in
the name of his Deputy to the Churchwardens, and
also give notice from time to time to the Churchwardens
for the time being when he shall charge him and who
he shall appoint in his stead."

" April 30, 1764. The Vestry Clerk acquainted the
Vestry that he had wrote to Mr. Purcell the Organist
agreeable to the Resolution of the last Vestry. Resolved
that the choice of an organist be deferred until the
next Vestry and that Mr. Purcell do officiate in the
meantime."



110 THE GEEAT MUSICIANS.

There is also an entry made by the Vestry Clerk,
April, 1764: "N.B. Wrote to him arid he said he
would name his deputy."

On Easter Tuesday, April 8th, 1765, the Vestry
minutes record the appointment of organ-blower, but no
mention is made of the organist ; we may therefore infer
that Purcell was not continued in the post, as in the
following year, 1766, we read

" Eesolved that David L d Heureux organist, Sarah
Palmer organ-blower, Be and they are hereby continued
in their respective oftices at their annual Sallarys until
Easter Tuesday next."
