Matthew Wallen

(circa 1719 - 1797)
     Matthew Wallen was born circa 1719 in Phillipstown or Daingean, Killaderry, Offaly, Ireland. Edward Crawford is the source of the data on this line. He was the son of Edward Wallen and Mary Armstrong.
     Matthew served in the Royal Navy until 1746.
     Matthew Wallen travelled to Jamaica, in January 1747. He was stationed at Gibraltar.
     Matthew was a botanist. in Jamaica, from 1747. He corresponded with Sir Joseph Banks on matters botanical and six letters from him to Banks in the period 1779-1787 survive while he was on a committee of the Jamaican Assembly dealing with plants for Kew in 1792. This same Committee is recorded as meeting with Captain Bligh of Bounty fame after the mutiny when he had returned from searching for suitable food crops such as breadfruit in the Pacific for use in the West Indies. Matthew Wallen's garden was near the borders of Portland and present day St. Andrews and it is said was probably established in the early 1770s though my own belief is that it was rather earlier. As a botanist he is praised by a contemporary, the planter and historian Bryan Edwards. There is a reference in 1837 to Cold Spring, "the ruins of the property of the Wallens, celebrated by Bryan Edwards" with comments on the European vegetation.
Ray Desmond, in the Dictionary of British and Irish horticulturists and botanisst, 1994, p.713 says that Matthew Wallen, flourished in the 1770s-1780s) was born in Ireland but resident in Jamaica and assisted Patrick Browne's 83 work on the Civil & Natural History of Jamaica, 1756. His source for this must be the noted Swedish botanist Olaf Swartz who in FL Indiae Occidentalis v. 1, 1797, p.247 naming a plant in Matthew Wallen's honour "Mongynia, Wallenia," dedicates it thus:- "In honorem Matthiae Wallen, Hiberni Viri Generosi, per plures annos Civis Jamaicensis. Is, Botanices praccellens cultor et pronotor cum Browne, historiam suam naturalem elaborante".
He is thus described by a contemporary, the planter and historian Bryan Edwards, `At Cold Spring, the seat of Mr Wallen, a very high situation possessed by a gentleman who has taste to relish its beauties and improve its productions, the temperature is from 55º to 65º.' There follows a description of the many plants and ferns cultivated by him on his estate which was 4,200 feet above sea level about 14 miles from Kingston. Later he says `The ubiquitous but graceful bamboo is also an exotic and owes its introduction to Mr M. Wallen who brought it from Hispaniola and first planted it in the parish of St Thomas in the East.*
"To Mr Wallen, formerly owner of Cold Spring and Wallenford, the friend of Swartz and a successful botanist, we are no doubt indebted for the first plants of the buttercups, strawberries, water-cress, chick-weed, wild pansy, groundsel, dead nettles, dandelion, common honeysuckle, black-berried elder, evening primrose, nasturtium, common myrtle, the English oak, white clover and the sweet violet, now common on the Port Royal and Blue Mountains, being, possibly, escapes from his garden at Cold Spring, which even in 1793 was well stocked with choice selections of introduced flowers and European trees and shrubs.' (Bryan Edwards, 5th Edition Vol.1 p.243 Jamaica' and cited by both Kew Bulletin Additional Series I, 1898, p.139 and Cundall, Historic Jamaica, 1915.)
There is also the following material transcribed from Smith's Icones Pictae Plantarum Rariorum, 1790:`tab.3 Euphorbia punicea Scarlet Spurge', `Discovered in Jamaica but sparingly by Matthew Wallen Esq. who sent it to the late Marquis of Rockingham, in the year 1778, the plant from which our figure is drawn, and which still continues to flower in great beauty in the collection of the Marchioness.' and `tab. 10 Tradescantia discolor Purple-leaved spider-wort', `Mr Masson observing this plant cultivated in Jamaica, to which place it had been brought by a ship from that part of South America called the Mosquito-shore, no sooner described it to the English Botanists, than they became anxious to acquire so beautiful and singular a production, and at length, by the favour of Mr Wallen, it was sent to Europe.'
     Matthew Wallen married Catherine Phillips on 10 November 1748 in Kingston, Surrey, Jamaica.
     In 1750 (The Long Papers, British Museum, add. mss. 12436. `A list of landholders in Jamaica') Thomas Wallen owned 504 acres in St Annes, 3,267 acres in Westmoreland and 900 acres in Clarendon. In the same document there is also a John Wallen deceased with 600 acres in St Catherine's, 1,850 acres in Westmoreland and 365 acres in St Thomas in the Vale. (In the Jamaica Almanack for 1818 there is in St Thomas in the Vale an estate called `Wallens' owned by a John Blackburn who had on it 233 slaves and 161 stock.) In 1754, (CO/142/31) John Wallen decd, owned (in acres) 600 St Catherine, 1,850 St Elizabeth, 365 St Thomas in the Vale, total 2,856 while Thomas Wallen held St Andrew 504, St Elizabeth 3327, Clarendon 900, a total of 4,731 acres. (All data from quit-rents.) In CO 137/28 Thomas Wallen has 504 acres in St Andrew and on them 3 white servants, 109 slaves and 13 cattle. All Matthew's 85 acres in the same parish was pasture and described as "good land". There are obvious confusions as to which parishes the landholdings are in. Was John a cousin of Matthew and Thomas? (Information on this branch supplied by Edward Crawford, ggg grandson).      
Matthew Wallen was a Member of Parliament between 1754 and 1790 for Jamaica. He was eight times a member of the Jamaican Assembly (10) and was involved in a disputed election to Port Royal in 1781. He was a Colonel of the Militia in Port Royal where he commanded the Rock fort in 1788. The record of the Jamaican Assembly says that a Mr Wallen was given leave of absence during the 1793 session.18 He must then have been 73.
     Mary Wallen, (d.7.9.1755) an infant in Kingston was probably the daughter of Matthew.
     Matthew Wallen married secondly Sarah Pinnock? before 1770.
     There is a codicil to the will of John Scott (1720-1773) which says And Whereas there is in the Hall at Clarendon Park a Neat Picture done in Crayons, commonly called the Tiroleze Cook Maid, which bears a strong resemblance to the first Wife of my Worthy Friend Matthew Wallen Esquire, I do therefore leave him the said Picture during his life, agreeable to my Promise, the same after his death to be left to Mrs Browne, his Daughter. And if my Friend Mr Wallen would but indulge me, I would request that the said Picture might be immediately delivered to the said Mrs Browne. In witness whereof. I have hereunto set my Hand and Seal this third day of May in the Year of Our Lord one thousand seven hundred and seventy three..
     Matthew died in 1797. Matthew's approximate death date can be found in CO/140/88 where it is noted at the start of the session on 25.7.1797 `Matthew Wallen decd since last session of the (Jamaican) Assembly' and by Sibley who states he died in January 1797.

(5 June 1831 - 1 October 1893)
     Robert Elias Wallen was born on 5 June 1831 in Port of Spain, Trinidad, West Indies. The Australian Dictionary of Biography states: Robert Elias Wallen (1831-1893), stockbroker and journalist, was born on 5 June 1831 at Port of Spain, Trinidad, West Indies, son of Francis Robertson Wallen, of Donegal, Ireland, and his wife Catherine, née Hobson. He was educated at Foyle College, Londonderry, Ireland, and in 1848 joined a firm of American merchants in Liverpool, England ... Robert arrived in Melbourne in 1852 in the Rip Van Winkle, the cargo of which was consigned to him, while the rest of the family came in the Great Britain. He was the son of Francis Robertson Wallen and Catherine Hobson.

Thomas Wallen

(circa 1720 - 5 November 1804)
     Thomas Wallen was born circa 1720. In Burke's Commoners 1834-8 the his younger brother Thomas is given the birth date of 1720 as he is by E Brathwaite in The Development of Creole Society in Jamaica 1770-1820, Oxford 1979. This would give Matthew a birth date 1718/9 his parents being married in 1718. Burke's is likely to be correct about eldest sons. There are errors however in the Wallen entry since they name Matthew's son, Edward Pinnock Wallen, as Edward Pleyer Wallen of the 20th Dragoons. (But this identification is absolutely secure as the regiment is correct and there were only two Wallens in the Army from 1760-1840, the other being Matthew's brother Thomas, Commissioner of Musters in Jamaica.
. He was the son of Edward Wallen and Mary Armstrong.
     Thomas Wallen married Unknown Gaultier in 1750. Members of a Gaultier family are recorded as buried in St Andrews; Wright, Philip, Monumental Inscriptions of Jamaica. There are Gautier's in Dublin, see marriages in Falkner's Dublin Journal 9.1.1762.
     Thomas & Matthew Wallen are listed as landholders in St Andrews Parish in 1753/4 (CO 137/28) as are James Ramage, Joseph Gaultier, Robert Phillips (d.7.11.1763), Robert's wife Eleanor (d.26.2.1759) & Ryves Phillips, Col in Militia, (d.6.4.1770). In 1754 Joseph Ramage had over 2,000 acres on the island as did Ezekiel Gaultier (CO142/31).
     Thomas Wallen married secondly Elizabeth Patterson on 5 October 1755. He claimed the share of Elizabeth's estate (£700) due to her when her parents were dead in 1764. Jamaican inventories.
     Thomas Wallen married thirdly Frances Unknown (Ramage) on 8 January 1757 in Kingston, Surrey, Jamaica. She was described as Frances Ramadge, widow.
     William Highley wrote: Thomas Wallen (1720-1804) was Matthew's younger brother and thus EPW's uncle. Thomas Wallen was a Member of the Assembly for Port Royal in 1768-9, for St John in 1775, a Member of the Council from 1776-1804 and the President of the Council for the last six years of his life, 1798-1804 when he got a `humane bounty' of £700 pa because of his reduced circumstances.23 From the Army Lists he was Commissioner of Musters in Jamaica from 1786-1800 inclusive and was paid £172/17/6 a year. There was a row when Thomas as Commissioner of Musters claimed about £300 expenses in 1785 and some members of the Assembly saw his claim as an unfortunate precedent.24
The second daughter by Frances Ramage, Fanny (Frances) Maria Wallen, married her first cousin Thomas Drought of Droughtville, Ireland.145 The two sons of that marriage John (b.1780) and James (b.1785) had no recorded offspring but there were two Drought daughters, Jane (1786-1810),146 married a Captain William Pigott in 1804147 and Elizabeth a William Hawkins while both had children who would have been third cousins of our grandfather. These included Henry Pigot (b.1805) who inherited the Droughtville estate in 18??. In 1872-5 there are a number of Drought landowners in Kings Co, many in Ballybritt, and one owning 3,000 acres in Lettybrook but no Wallens, no Henry Pigott and no Hawkins.148
.
     Thomas died on 5 November 1804. He died in his wife's arms after remarrying (25) a much younger woman four months before his death at eighty-four years old, which occasioned some coarse ribaldry in Jamaican society.(26). Lady Nugent said of Thomas Wallen, `Gave audience to the old superannuated President of the Council, who wanted me to patronize a decayed milliner of bad character. Altogether an unpleasant business but I got rid of it civilly but decidedly'.(27)
