  • Notes 


    • Frances Maria Cripps was born in 1807, the first child of David Cripps and Margaret Evans. Her sister Margaret was born about 3 years later.

      In 1828 a Miss Millington painted portraits of Frances Maria and Richard Pheney, whom she was to marry two year later. The portrait of Frances was that of a beautiful and refined woman in the early prime of life. Constance Howell described Frances as "beautiful with golden ringlets and delicate colouring". In Aug 2016, Rex Sinnott donated the portraits to the Alexander Turnbull Library in Wellington, New Zealand.

      In 1830 Frances married Richard Pheney. Witnesses at the marriage were her sister Margaret Cripps, her uncle William Pople and Harriet Shephard. Frances' parish at marriage was given as Paddington, Middlesex; Richard's as St Dunstan in the West, London.

      Frances and Richard's marriage was to be short-lived. They had two sons Richard and Frank and a daughter Margaret, and then Frances Maria died 27 April 1835 after a short illness. She was buried the next day (Tuesday 28 April) at 11:30am at Bunhill Fields Cemetery in London. Her daughter Margaret died six months later.

      Richard was badly affected by the death of his wife, and eventually lost his business and emigrated to New Zealand. He did not remarry. Richard jnr and Frank were cared for by Richard's half-sister, Miss Neale – the one became a lithographic artist, and the other a printer.
