James Ashpital

1883, Trustee of Lopping Hall, Loughton.

According to G. Sludge, ".. perhaps related to the architect of St Barnabas, Homerton, was a builder who was born and lived in Loughton."

James Ashpital was born in 1827 in Loughton, Essex, the son of Thomas and Mary Ann Ashpital. His father was born in 1777 and his mother in 1787. In the 1841 census he is shown as aged 14 years, living in Englands Lane, Loughton, with his parents. His father was described as a tailor.

On 29 June 1851 he married Elizabeth Turner Gascoigne (1830-1923) in All Saints Church, Poplar, Middlesex (now Greater London), where in the marriage registers he is shown as a bachelor and a carpenter, living in Poplar, whilst his wife is described as a spinster also residing in Poplar, the daughter of Thomas Gascoinge, a labourer. They were to have a total of nine children.

In the 1861 census he was described as a journeyman carpenter living at 7 William Street, Poplar, with his wife and five children: Elizabeth Sabina Ashpital (1852-1923); Mary Anna Ashpital (1853-1939); James William Ashpital (1856-1879); Eliza Matilda Ashpital (1858-1936) and Jeannette Maria Ashpital (1860-1951).

He was described as a carpenter and builder in the 1871 census, living in High Road, Loughton, Essex, with his wife and six of their children: James William Ashpital; Eliza Matilda Ashpital; Jeannette Maria Ashpital; Pamela Jane Ashpital (1863-1945); Onesiphorus John Ashpital (1865-1949) and Russell Ashpital (1868-1946). 

When the 1881 census was undertaken he was listed as a builder, still residing in High Road, Loughton, with his wife and five of their children: Mary Anna Ashpital, who was shown as an unemployed housemaid; Jeannette Maria Ashpital; Onesiphorus John Ashpital, who was listed as an under butler; Russell Ashpital as a scholar and Augusta Edith Ashpital (1872-1917) who was also a scholar.

His death, aged 61 years, was registered in the 3rd quarter of 1888 in the Epping registration district, Essex.
