George Canning

(circa 1736 - before 10 April 1771)
     George Canning was born circa 1736 in Garvagh, Errigal, Londonderry, Ireland. He was the eldest son of Stratford Canning of Garvagh, co. Derry (1703-1775) by his wife Letitia, daughter of Obadiah Newburgh of Ballyhaise, co. Cavan. His brother Paul inherited the title and another brother Stratford was a banker in London.. He was the son of Stratford Canning and Letitia Newburgh.
     In 1757 went to London with an allowance of £156 p.a. and in 1764 was called to the bar.
     He was described as an Irish pamphleteer, poet, barrister (non-practising) & wine merchant. Of the Middle Temple, London. His family removed young George from his mother.
     Highfill states that George went to England in 1758 to become a resident of the Middle Temple, a frequenter of Grub Street, and the boon companion of Churchill, Colman, and Whitbread. As a contributor to Dodsley's Miscellanies and by his support of Wilkes, he decried the taxation of America and the tyranny of priests and kings, and boasted of his ancestors "who fought, who bled, and ... who died" for the cause of "pale liberty, when Popery high her standard bore." Such activities finally proved ruinous for him; heavily in debt, he eventually consented in return for the discharge of his bills to give up further claims on his father's estate, which was quickly settled on a younger brother Paul. ... He became a moderately successful wine merchant. [After his death] the plight of the mother and child was soon rendered critical when Stratford canning withdrew the allowance of £150.
     George Canning married Mary Ann Costello, daughter of Jordan Costello and Mary Guy Dickens, on 21 May 1768 in St Mary, St Marylebone, Westminster. George Canniing of the Middle Temple, Middlesex, Esquire, bachelor & Mary Ann Costello of this parish, spinster were married by licence . Signed George Canning & Mary Ann Costello in the presence of Gustavus Guydickens & Albinia Gryan?
She was of Wigmore St.

:TAB:]Highfill states that by the time Mary Anne married the Irish George Canning, he had already earned a reputation for having an ardent attachment to civil and religious liberty. These extreme liberal views and his liaison with with a young girl prior to his association with Mary Anne, had caused his father, Stratford Canning of Garvagh, to turn him off with a allowance of £150 a year.
William Jerdan in "Men I have known" (via Google Books), states: I must, however, set out with a correction of my memoir from a relative of the family, who adds that Canning's chivalrous spirit might well belong to his blood as his descent was from two of the noblest septs in Ireland, the Costellos and the Frenches, from Old Castile ! 'It is stated that the accomplished mother of George Canning was ' of inferior station.' This is so far from being the case, that the young lady was residing with her uncle, General Guydickens, who, on his return from a mission of honour from his sovereign to the court of Russia, had adopted his nioce, Mary Ann Costello, as his heiress. It was his mansion in South Audley Street she quitted to become Mrs. Canning. It was from his carriage she was alighting at Kensington Gardens (whither she daily accompanied the General and his maiden sister, her aunt, Miss Guydickens), when George Canning, then a student at Temple Bar, first saw the young Irish beauty who was to be the mother of one of England's best-loved statesmen. The addresses of the young representative of the Canning squirearchy were sternly repelled by General Guydickens, who had higher views for the niece he subsequently disinherited for what, in his eyes, was a meaalliance. It is at the same time historically true that the Canning family unrelentingly resented the marriage on their side, and thus this true Romeo and Juliet were exposed to a cross fire of persecution from the Capulets and Montagues."
Well, we may say with the poet, " it matters not ; " but Canning was aware of the miserable little envy which would endeavour to disparage him as lowly born. When George Croly published his comedy of " Pride shall have a Fall," he asked me to get Mr. Canning's consent to its being dedicated to him. I made the request without circumlocution, as I said and did everything I had to say or do in the same quarter, frankly and straightforward (for such was his desire), and he at once laughingly complied with the application, with the remark, " It is an odd title. I shall, no doubt, have it good-naturedly fitted to myself." I remember on another occasion some one gave a vivid account of a pitiable scene just witnessed in the Green Park
.
     George died before 10 April 1771 in London, England. He was buried on 10 April 1771 in St Marylebone.

George Canning

(11 April 1770 - 8 August 1827)
     George Canning was born on 11 April 1770 in Queen Anne Street, Marylebone, London. He was the son of George Canning and Mary Ann Costello. George Canning was christened on 9 May 1770 in St Mary, St Marylebone.
     George was educated from 1780 at Winchester, Hampshire. We hold a copy of a letter from "my uncle Canning to my grandmother when he was 10 years old at Winchester School." Sunday Nov 19 1780 Win Hse? - Dear Mother, I am very glad that I have this opportunity of writing to you again to desire you to hasten an answer to my last and as soon as possible to send me the books. I suppose you have heard (I mean you know) of the book called Anti Lucretius which my dear father translated and as I shall always be glad to revere his works I would be obliged to you to send it me amongst the rest if you can easily get it. I have not before acquainted you with a custom in our school of speaking, that is we get some English poem by heart and repeat it before Mr Richards and the other Usher and all the boys. and it being my turn last Saturday I chose "The epistle from Lord William Russell to William Lord Cavendish" of my father's composition. But now adieu & believe me dear mother, your dutl & affecte son G Canning.
Canning & his friends by J Bagot, states that he was at a private school kept by Mr Richards at Winchester. His mother wrote to him there when he was 12 when he was about to go to Eton, apparently at the house of a Mr Hannington.
Rollo stated that his prep school was Hyde Abbey in Winchester.
     George was educated from from 1783 to 1787 at Eton, New Windsor, Berkshire.
     George matriculated at Christ Church, Oxford University, between November 1787 and 1794. He left Eton in 1787 and was admitted to Christ Church Oxford in Nov 1787. (B.A. 1791, M.A. 1794). He obtained the Chancellor's Latin prize for verse with his Pilgrimage of Mecca in 1789.
     George Canning in Ashbourne, Derbyshire, England, sent a letter dated 13 August 1794 to Charles Reddish. Ashborne Aug 13 1794 : Dear Charles, I have been exceedingly mortified to find, in all the letters, which I have received from you, & on all those, which you have enclosed to me to be forwarded to your mother, or any other person, since you have been in your present situation such very bad writing, as to make me doubt whether it is possible that can ever have been taught to write at all. If such be your best hand, I am sure, you are by no means fit for the place in which you are & I shall be surprized at Mr Popplewell's goodness in keeping you for such a hand, in his books, not only can be of no manner of service to him, but must absolutely spoil & confuse his accounts, & do him infinite damage. If it be not your best hand, I must be under the necessity of telling you, that it is not proper, nor respectful to your mother, or to any other person whom you address, to send them such scrawls, as they cannot possibly read without great difficulty. It is no excuse to say that you are in a hurry, when you write =- or if you are hurried and have any thing else to do, you have no business ot be writing letters at all. Mr Popplewell's concerns are not to suffer for the sake of your correspondence: & I can assure you, you had better employ the leisure, which he is good as to allow you, in endeavours to render yourself more worthy of his kindness, & more useful in your situation with him, by improving yourself in writing, & in your arithmatick - (which if it is no better than your writing, is absolutely good for nothing) - than in scribbling over sheets of paper, for no purpose but to puzzle & perplex those, who are to read them. I must inform you also, that it is not your handwriting only with which I see occasion to find fault. The style & manner of writing, which you have adopted, is very foolish, & not such as becomes a boy of s... A little boy of your age ought to write as he would talk, plainly, & modestly - & not with high flown phrases, & words which he cannot understand, & which make all that he says completely unintelligible to others.
I have borne these faults for some time, and have forwarded all the letters, which you have sent to me, in hope that you would at length become sensible of your error, & endeavour to amend it. Instead of this, I find, you grow worse & worse. The letter, which I received yesterday & which you say is meant for Mr Milner, has three words upon the back of it which are perfectly illegible. I will not disgrace myself by forwarding such a scrawl & I therefore return it to you, as I shall do hence forward every letter of yours that carries upon its outside such marks of carelessness & folly. I had determined upon returning it to you, upon seeing the outside only. But when I looked at the inside, which I have just done, to see for whom it was really intended, (a piece of information that the direction did not convey to me) - I found it to contain such stuff, as makes me quite ashamed for you. It is addressed, I see, to your brother on such a strain, as no brother ought to write to another - or such parts of it, as are not nonsense appear to me to be something worse. I must insist on your explaining to your aunt the meaning of this letter of yours, & she will transmit your explanation to me, - for I do not wish to receive another letter from you, until you can write both legible and intelligibly.
