263 Edward Nelson Fell, for whom Fell's Point on East Lake Tohopekaliga and Fellsmere in Indian River County Florida take their names, had seen most of the world before arriving in Florida. The youngest son in a British family of entrepreneurs, Fell already had an impressive worldwide resume before coming to Florida, where he founded two communities, the English colony of Narcoossee and the farming town of Fellsmere.

Fell's father, Alfred, was an Englishman who in the mid-1800s took his wife and children to New Zealand, where he ran a successful wholesale business. Fell was born in Nelson, New Zealand, in 1857. The family, then including seven children, returned to England two years later.

The poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson, a neighbor when the family was living on the Isle of Wight, mentored Nelson Fell on the arts and literature, including his own poetry.

Fell's father later sent him to Heidelberg for a year to learn German engineering techniques. Nelson Fell's first job would be working for his older brother Arthur.

Fell had made his choice early in life. He had six older brothers and sisters, greatly reducing his chance of inheriting enough to live a life of leisure. Arthur Fell, the oldest son, would be a knighted member of Parliament and the head of the family-owned businesses.

He was 27 and working as a mining engineer in Colorado when his brother decided the family should invest in Florida land.

The Fell family and partners bought 12,000 acres of raw frontier Florida east of Lake Tohopekaliga, Kissimmee, Florida including 2,000 acres that would become the English colony of Narcoossee. Nelson Fell and British Lt. Col. William Edmund Cadman took charge of dividing the land into small farms for sale. Also, Nelson Fell began plans to drain 2,500 acres of marshland.

His brother's instructions were to establish a community "commensurate with his family standing."

Nelson Fell prospered in Florida, enough to attract the attention of Anne Mumford Palmer, whose father was a New York judge known to all the right people. She grew up in a "cosmopolitan lifestyle," spending much of her childhood abroad, mostly in Paris.

They married in 1885, the year after Arthur Fell sent his young brother to frontier Florida. Their first child, Marian, was born in 1886 in Cornwall-on-Hudson, N.Y. Another daughter and a son followed, but the Fells would rear their children in a land known for mosquitoes, rattlesnakes and alligators in Florida.

Narcoossee was not Paris, and the Florida frontier was not New York. It must have been a rugged challenge for Fell's wife and children, especially when Nelson Fell was absent for long periods on family business.

In 1890, steamboat captain Rufus E. Rose, who had come to Florida to work for Disston and became the first chairman of the Osceola County Commission, encouraged Fell's successful campaign for county commissioner. It was the beginning of a long-standing relationship between Fell and Rose, who later was the state chemist who encouraged Fell to drain land bordering the Everglades for sugar cane and other farms at Fellsmere.

Arthur Fell, always looking for the next opportunity, saw huge prospects in copper mining on the other side of the world from Narcoossee, and his young brother was just the man for the job.

Leaving his wife and children in Florida, Nelson Fell left the Sunshine State for the bitter cold of Siberia.

After meeting with his brother in London in 1901, Nelson Fell's destination was the great treeless plains of Central Asia in what then was the Russian frontier and what today is the wilderness in the Kirghiz Steppe in Kazakhstan. Arthur Fell had become a member of the British Parliament where he "had learned that there were tremendous investment opportunities in central Asia."

Joined by one of his Narcoossee agents, Charles Piffard, Nelson Fell in January 1902 boarded the Trans-Siberia Railroad for a 2,000-mile journey. They rode horseback for the last 600 miles.

Fell would write a 1916 book about his years running a primitive copper mine, Russian and Nomad: Tales of Kirghiz Steppes. Back in London, he reported to his brother that buying and running the Spassky copper mines would make unlimited profits. Fell returned to Russia in 1903. Soon he told his family to leave their Fell's Point home in Narcoossee Florida and join him in Russia. That decision was made easier by floods and freezes in Narcoossee that had made it necessary for the family to move. Fell also persuaded his future son-in-law, Kissimmee lawyer Patrick A. Vans Agnew, to abandon his law practice to work in Russia.

Silver and copper mining in Russia made Fell, then 52, a rich man. In 1909, he returned to the United States with plans to retire to a Virginia estate. His wife was making plans for their oldest daughter's marriage to Vans Agnew, who planned to return to his law office in Kissimmee. The younger Fell daughter, Olivia, soon would marry Vans Agnew's brother, Frank.

Nelson Fell had bought a Virginia estate with plans to retire on the riches he had made in Russia. Vans Agnew, still enthused by his business success in Russia, persuaded his father-in-law to undertake a second Florida challenge, draining thousands of acres of the Everglades and building the town of Fellsmere from scratch.

The challenge proved too much. In 1917, after six years of frustrations, the Fellsmere Tribune reported "the close of the greatest and most complete drainage proposition in Florida," a failure brought about by skepticism about Florida land promotions, flooding and tight money resulting from the outbreak of World War I.
Fell's auditors found that the company was bleeding money and unable to keep up with the massive drainage expenses. With World War I breaking out in Europe, plans for a colony of Belgian, Dutch and French farmers in Fellsmere evaporated. Also, the company's title to the land was clouded by a probate dispute.

Fell managed to keep his company afloat until mid-1915 when storms flooded the farmlands and town. Fells helped the farmers and the townspeople recover, but the company couldn't afford to drain enough land to keep land sales going. By June 1916, the company couldn't pay its debts. A court-appointed receiver took over. Fell lost everything he had invested.

By 1917, Fell had retired to his Virginia estate. He died there in 1928.

265 Elder daughter of Sir Robert L.M. Kirkwood of Sandwich, Kent, and Jamaica Kirkwood, Caroline Anne (I15)
 
266 Elder son of John and Mary Peek of Modbury. In the pedigree attested before Lancaster Herald when he was granted Arms in 1832, however, John Peek gave the year of his birth and baptism as 1752. The confusion must surely have arisen as a result of the change from the Julian (Old Style) Calendar to the Gregorian (New Style) Calendar in September 1752. Before that date each year began on 25 March (Lady Day), the period between the previous 1 January and 25 March being reckoned as a compromise between the old and the new years and recorded as such (e.g. 25 January 1624/25, 7 February 1746/47). As John Peek was born after September 1752 his baptism is quite properly recorded in the Modbury parish register as 9 March 1753 (New Style), and his date of birth was equally 25 February 1753. If the Julian Calendar had still been in use his year of birth and baptism would have been recorded as 1752/53, as 1753 would not have begun until 25 March. As this was the first year which began on 1 January no doubt John Peek's parents continued to reckon under the Old Style and informed their son accordingly.

John Peek was married to Susannah Ann Foxworthy at Loddiswell, Devon, 11/5/1779, when he was living at West Alvington, near Kingsbridge. Soon afterwards, however, he moved to Loddiswell, his wife's native parish, and their first four children were all born there. When John Peek first took up residence at Halsenwood Villa, Loddiswell, is not certain, but his second son Richard is stated to have been born at the Villa on 3/10/1782. John Peek's four youngest children were all born at Dodbrook, Kingsbridge, and his wife died there in August 1802.

John Peek, Esq., of Halsenwood Villa, Loddiswell, was granted Arms and a crest by the College of Arms on 28 June 1832. His portrait is hung in the dining room at Castle Drogo, Devon, the seat of the Drewe family, which was built by one of his great-grandsons, Julius Charles Drewe. There is a similar portrait at Hazelwood. 
Peek, John (I1)
 
267 Elder son of Richard Peeke (1618-1686/87) of Abbotsleigh by his first wife, Christian. Baptised Blackawton 30 November 1643. Constable of Halwell in 1673. Paid tax on 2 hearths at Halwell in 1674. Married twice. His first wife was Susanna Smith, daughter of Wilmott Smith; they were married at Halwell on 7 January 1666, and their son Richard was baptised there on 2 March 1667/68 a few days after Susanna's death and burial at Halwell at the end of February 1667/68. She may have died in childbirth. If, as one must assume, the dates of Susanna's marriage to Richard Peeke and her burial at Halwell are correct, then it would not have been possible for them to have had another child unless they had had twins. The Blackawton register records the baptism of a daughter Susanna to a Richard and Susanna Peeke on 20 October 1663; this may have been a misreading for 1668, but it is hardly likely that the daughter Susanna would have been baptised eight months after her mother's death when the latter's known child Richard had already been baptised at the time of her death. In any case Richard Peeke married his second wife, Grace Wadland, at Blackawton on 6 September (or possibly November) 1668 and had at least two more children by her. Grace Wadland was the sister of Leonard Wadland (junior) who acted as bondsman for Richard Peeke's half-brother John Peeke when the latter married Mary Robbins at Harberton in April 1680. The Blackawton Manor Court Rolls make several mentions between 1704 and 1707 of a Richard Peeke, his wife and (presumably) daughters, while a survey of the manor made c.1700 mentions a Richard Peeke occupying a farm called Sweetson valued at 60 and a widow Peeke's tenement at Abbotsleigh valued at 33. Presumably these are all references to the Richard Peeke described in this note, his son Richard and his second wife nee Grace Wadland, who no doubt continued to occupy the farm at Abbotsleigh after her husband's death Peeke, Richard (I1676)
 
268 Eldest child of Samuel Peek (1785-1860) of Kingsbridge, Devon. Living in Gloucester in 1831 and married there on 25 December 1831 to Caroline Webb, eldest daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth Webb of Gloucester. Emigrated to Sydney, N.S.W., and founded, with a partner, the business of S. Peek & Co., of 424 George Street and 295 Pitt Street, Sydney. This became one of the largest firms of importers and dealers in the city, and, according to "The Sydney Morning Herald", Mr and Mrs S. Peek were two of the best known colonists and "Pioneer Peeks". Samuel Peek's brother Richard also worked with S. Peek & Co.

Samuel Peek lived at Gosford, N.S.W., a town some fifty miles north of Sydney, where he owned five hundred acres of what is now the best residential area in the district. He owned a steamer which plied between Gosford and Sydney. The promontory where Samuel Peek and his wife lived is now known as Peek's Point, and the town of Gosford has a Caroline Street and a Webb Street, both named after Samuel Peek's wife nee Caroline Webb.

Sometime before 1857 Samuel and Caroline Peek returned to London, as he is described in his will made 19 May 1857 as "now of 162 New Bond Street, Piccadilly in the county of Middlesex, Esq., and formerly of Sydney, N.S.W." Soon after making his will, however, he and his wife set out again for Sydney. After an eleven-week voyage from England the sailing ship "Dunbar", in which they were travelling, was wrecked against the cliffs off Sydney Heads as it tried to enter the harbour in a fierce storm near midnight on 20 August 1857. Of the 63 passengers and 59 crew only one, a young seaman, was saved when he was washed ashore. The disaster, the best-known of all the shipwrecks to have occurred off Sydney, created a great sensation at the time, and the wrecking of the "Dunbar" has become part of the early history of New South Wales. Attempts are now being made to save what remains of the wrecked ship (see "The Sydney Morning Herald" of 7 June 1980).

Samuel and Caroline Peek had no children, and in his will (proved in London December 1857) Samuel Peek left a large sum of money in trust to pay for the education in England of his nephew, Harry Hazelwood Peek, the only son of his brother James Peek, who was also head of a successful business in Sydney.

He retired from practice in 1864 and devoted the rest of his life to social and legal advisory work in Brighton, where he lived at Walton House. He was also much attached to the study of marine biology and published several papers on the subject of ichthyology. As a result of his strong interest in this branch of natural history he was elected a Fellow of the Linnean Society on 21 April 1864. He died at his country residence. Peek, Richard (I604)

285 Have you ever taken time to look at the stained glass window to the left of the door as you come into St. John the Baptist Church in Little Marlow? It commemorates Edward Terence Doyne Finch, a young man whose parents lived at Abbey Cottage, Well End and who was killed on 26th November 1914, aged 27.

On 15th October 1903 Edward was a Midshipman in the Royal Navy and joined HMS Hannibal on 15th September of the same year. He joined HMS Prince George on 22ndFebruary 1905, was promoted to Sub Lieutenant on 15th December 1906 and was based in Portsmouth under training. On 28th April 1908 he joined HMS Suffolk and was promoted to Lieutenant on 15th June 1908. He then joined TB078 (a torpedo boat), in command, on 7th February 1911 and subsequently took command of HMS Brazen, joining her on 31st October. Training for torpedo duties on HMS Vernon followed and he joined HMS Bulwark on 29th August 1913 as Torpedo Officer.

HMS Bulwark was a 1st Class battleship of 15,000 tons, built at the Devonport Dockyard. She was serving in the 5th Battle Squadron under Captain G.L. Sclater when on 15thNovember she arrived at Sheerness to provision.

Eleven days later, while taking on ammunition, she blew up without warning. Practically all her complement of 750 officers and men were on board, only 12 survived. It was the worst naval accident of the war, and the Admiralty could not account for the cause on the meagre evidence placed before it.

Among those unaccounted for was Edward Finch. The entry on the Portsmouth Naval Memorial register reads: FINCH, Lieut. Edward Terence Doyne. R.N. H.M.S. Bulwark. Killed by internal explosion of vessel off Sheerness 26th November 1914.

A year after Edwards death the memorial window was dedicated to his memory. The wording at the base of the window reads To the Glory of God and to the dearly loved and honoured memory of Edward Terence Doyne Finch, Lieut. Royal Navy, born 6th Nov 1887. Lost with the officers and men of HMS Bulwark whilst serving their country, 26 Nov 1914, aged 27 years RIP.

293 In 1855, at the age of nineteen, he joined his father and others in the firm of Peek Bros and Winch of Liverpool as a junior partner. This firm then opened up in London at 23 Rood Lane, City, in direct competition with the original firm of Peek Bros & Co, tea brokers, of 20 Eastcheap, London, E.C. In 1874 Peek Bros and Winch moved to 3/4 Fenchurch Street, City. On the death of William Peek senior in 1870 Francis Peek became senior partner, and the London firm changed its name to Francis Peek, Winch & Co. In May 1895 a limited company was formed under the style of Peek Bros and Winch Ltd to incorporate the businesses of all the firms mentioned above. The head office of the new company was to be no. 20 Eastcheap, where Peek Bros and Co. had been established since c.1842; the building had been reconstructed in 1874 to form the present Peek House. This remained the head office of the company and its successor, Peek, Winch & Tod, Ltd, until recent years.

Francis Peek was appointed first Chairman of Peek Brothers & Winch Ltd in 1895 and held the appointment until his death in 1899. His portrait was hung in the Board Room at Peek House. He was also Chairman of the Howard Association and the James Peek Trust for a number of years. He is reputed to have given over half a million pounds during his lifetime to charitable and religious causes. These included the building of four churches for his sons-in-law in Holy Orders. One of these churches was Holy Trinity, Beckenham, Kent, built in 1877/78 in memory of his parents, William and Mary Peek. Another portrait of Francis Peek hangs in the vestry there.

295 In Frimley between the Tarrants and the Cardens a Rev J.A.Stephenson and his wife and four little girls lived. He had had to retire from the curacy of St.Andrews Church, Frimley Green owing to ill-health and died there after only a short while. The children including Jack and Jill! the girl twins, often came over to Warren Farm to see us. He was very ill with T.B. and used to sleep in a tent in the garden. The children were bought up very hardy often running about rain or shine, with bare feet and very few clothes, but they looked very healthy.
