William Llewellin was born in Hereford in c.1812.
Elizabeth Lack was born in Egham, Surrey on 26 June 1812 and baptised there on 27 July. She was the daughter of Thomas Lack and his wife Ann.
On 24 April 1838 at St John the Baptist Church, Egham, William Llewellin, (26), described as a gentleman and living in Islay, Brecknock, married Elizabeth Lack (also 26) of Egham. They had just one child:
- Elizabeth Ann Hastings Llewellin (born at Newcastle Emlyn in Carmarthenshire on 26 April 1839).
William and his wife were evidently living in Wales in 1839, but then went back to Scotland.
At the time of the 1851 census William was a supervisor of the Inland Revenue living at Burnside Street, Rothes, Moray with his wife and their daughter Elizabeth (11), plus one servant.
By the time of the 1861 census the family had moved back to England, and William, who was still working as a collector of taxes, was with his wife and their daughter Elizabeth in Brighton, at Arnold House, 27 Buckingham Road; again they had one servant.
In 1870 their only daughter was married:
- On 28 April 1870 at St Nicolas's Church, Brighton, Elizabeth Ann Hastings Llewellin married Herbert Hurst.
Their wedding was announced thus in Jackson’s Oxford Journal: “April 28, at St. Nicolas, Brighton, Herbert Hurst, of Falkland House Finchley, to Elizabeth Ann Hastings, only child of William Llewellin, Esq., collector of Her Majesty’s Inland Revenue, Brighton.” Elizabeth and her husband Herbert Hurst had four children between 1871 and 1882: for more about her married life, see the separate grave of her husband, who is buried with his brother in St Sepulchre’s Cemetery.
At the time of the 1871 census William Llewellin (58), described as a Collector of Inland Revenue and distributor of stamps, was still living at Arnold House, 27 Buckingham Road, Brighton with his wife and one servant.
The Llewellins then moved up to Liverpool, and at the time of the 1881 census William (68), still working as a Collector of Inland Revenue, was living at 3 The Elms, Toxteth Park with his wife Elizabeth (68) and their eldest grandchild Llewellin Herbert Hurst (9), plus one servant.
Their daughter Mrs Elizabeth Ann Hastings Hurst was living in Oxford at the time her youngest child was born in 1882, and in 1883 she became the first leaseholder of 23 & 24 Farndon Road (a pair of houses designed by Wilkinson & Moore). By the time of the 1891 census her parents were living at No. 24 (then called Bayfield): William Llewellin (79) was described as living on his own means, and they had one servant. His wife died the following year:
† Mrs Elizabeth Llewellin née Lack died at 24 Farndon Road at the age of 80 on 7 October 1892 and was buried at St Sepulchre’s Cemetery on 13 October (burial recorded in the parish register of St Giles’s Church).
Her death was announced thus in The Standard: of 12 October 1892: “LLEWELLIN. — Sept. 7 [error for Oct. 7], suddenly, at Bayfield, Farndon road, Oxford, Elizabeth, the dearly-beloved wife for 54 years of William Llewellin, formerly of Brighton and Liverpool.”
William Llewellin remained at 24 Farndon Road until his own death in 1900:
† William Llewellin died at 24 Farndon Road at the age of 87 or 88 on 10 March 1900 and was buried at St Sepulchre’s Cemetery on 13 March (burial recorded in the parish register of St Giles’s Church).
His effects came to £21,925 1s. 8s., and his daughter Mrs Elizabeth Hurst was his executor. She was living with her husband Herbert in Battersea at the time of the 1901 and 1911 censuses, but by the time of her husband’s death on 15 March 1913, they were living at 100 Woodstock Road. She remained there until her own death in 1924:
† Mrs Elizabeth Ann Hastings Hurst died at 100 Woodstock Road at the age of 84 on 10 March 1924 and was buried at St Sepulchre’s Cemetery on 13 March (burial recorded in the parish register of St Giles’s Church).
