Biography

Family background

Chesshyre's father was Colonel Hubert Layard Chesshyre, MA (Cantab), late RE, born Hubert Layard Isacke, son of Major General Hubert Isacke, CB, CSI, CMG, late Queen's Own Royal West Kent Regiment.

Chesshyre's great-grandfather Sir Charles Peter Layard was Attorney General of Ceylon 1892-1902 and Chief Justice of Ceylon 1902-1906.

Chesshyre is also the 3rd-great-grandson of the 7th Earl of Dundee and the 5th-great-grandson of the 6th Earl of Lauderdale. Appropriately for a herald he is related to both the Bearer of the Royal Banner and the Bearer of the National Flag of Scotland.

Chesshyre comes from Canterbury, where the family has deep roots: his 2nd-great-grandfather, the Reverend William John Chesshyre, was a Canon of Canterbury Cathedral.[1] Chesshyre is therefore the first cousin twice removed of Canon Chesshyre's grandson The Rt Hon The Lord Tomlin, knight, PC, Lord of Appeal in Ordinary.[2]

Another of Chesshyre's 3rd-great-grandfathers was Major Sir William Boothby, 7th baronet, 51st (2nd Yorkshire West Riding) Regiment of Foot, FLS.[3]

Chesshyre is also a kinsman of Sir John Chesshyre (1662–1738), Serjeant at Law to Queen Anne. It was his inheriting a portrait of Sir John that sparked Chesshyre's interest in genealogy.[4]

Interestingly, Chesshyre is the 10th-great-grandson of Henry Stanley, 4th Earl of Derby, KG, PC, Lord Lieutenant and Vice-Admiral of Cheshire and Lancashire, Lord of Mann, and Lord High Steward, by his illegitimate son also called Henry Stanley. He is in turn descended from Edward Stanley, 3rd Earl of Derby, KG, PC, Lord Lieutenant and Vice-Admiral of Cheshire and Lancashire, Lord of Mann, and Lord High Steward, who in 1555 presented Derby Place to the Crown as the home of the Herald's College (now the College of Arms). Chesshyre is therefore also the 12th-great-grandson of John Howard, 1st Duke of Norfolk, KG, Earl Marshal, and Lord High Admiral.[5] He is also, therefore, twentieth in descent from Edward I (see Dukes of Norfolk family tree).

The family's arms have been in use since the seventeenth century but were only formally granted in 1970.[6] Chesshyre's coat of arms may be seen on the Cheshire Heraldry website: The Armorial Bearings of the Chester Heralds. Copyright Martin Goldstraw. Accessed 30 April 2010.

Education and early career

Chesshyre was educated at The King's School, Canterbury (The Grange 1954-59),[7] and Trinity College, Cambridge (BA French and German and MA). After graduating from Cambridge Chesshyre spent about four years working as a schoolmaster and vintner, including working for Moët et Chandon and John Harvey & Sons. He went to study at Christ Church, Oxford (1966/7) and was awarded a Diploma in Education (1967).[8] Chesshyre also spent some time in Nîmes in 1967, where he met a M. Chassin du Guerny.[9]

Despite his background in a distinguished military family (his brother, Colonel William John Chesshyre, MA (Cantab), late RE, was the military attaché at Prague and is now clerk of the Worshipful Company of Gunmakers[10]) Chesshyre served only briefly in the Honourable Artillery Company from 1964 until 1965.[11] While serving with the HAC he fired the 19-gun salute at the Tower of London for the state funeral of The Rt Hon Sir Winston Leonard Spencer-Churchill, KG, OM, CH, TD, FRS.[8]

Career as an officer of arms

Chesshyre was a Green Staff Officer at the Investiture of the Prince of Wales in 1969. At the College of Arms he served as Rouge Croix Pursuivant (1970–78),[12] Chester Herald (1978–95),[13] Norroy and Ulster King of Arms and Principal Herald of the North part of England and of Northern Ireland (1995–97),[14] and Clarenceux King of Arms and Principal Herald for the South, East and West parts of England (1997–2010).[15] He was also Registrar of the College of Arms from 1992 until 2000 and was the Founder Secretary of the College Uniform Fund in 1980, serving in that capacity until 1999.[16]

He was Secretary of the Most Noble Order of the Garter from 1988 until 2003, having been trained for the role by his predecessor Sir Walter Verco, KCVO and by Verco's predecessor-but-one, Sir Anthony Wagner, KCB, KCVO, FSA. (Between Wagner and Verco The Hon Sir George Bellew, KCB, KCVO, K.St.J., FSA has served as Secretary.) As Secretary of the Order he was responsible for organising the annual Garter service at St. George's Chapel, Windsor Castle and arranging for the stallplates, banners, and crests of the Companions of the Order to be set up in the chapel.[17] Following the 1992 Windsor Castle fire Chesshyre was, together with Peter Begent, appointed heraldic consultant for the reconstruction of St George's Hall.[18] On demitting office Chesshyre had an audience with HM The Queen at Buckingham Palace during which he surrendered to Her Majesty the badge of office. Afterwards Chesshyre's successor, Patric Dickinson, LVO, had an audience during which the Queen invested him with the same badge.[19] Finally, he was also Honorary Genealogist of The Society of the Friends of St George's and Descendants of the Knights of the Garter.[20]

For twenty-three years Chesshyre served as Honorary Genealogist to the Royal Victorian Order (1987–2010), again, in the room of Sir Walter Verco, KCVO.[11][21]

In his capacity as Ulster King of Arms (merged with Norroy King of Arms) Chesshyre was, like his predecessor John Brooke-Little, CVO, K.St.J., MA, FSA, FSG, FHS, FHG, FRHSC, FHSNZ, one of the two members, together with The Sovereign, of The Most Illustrious Order of St Patrick.[22]

On 3 May 2002 Chesshyre participated in the re-enactment of the funeral of Arthur, Prince of Wales, processing through the streets of Worcester bearing Arthur's crested helm, followed by other heralds bearing his sword, tabard, gauntlets, and spurs. He had acted as heraldic advisor to the re-enactment committee in his personal capacity.[23]

Interviewed by The Daily Telegraph in connection with the arms of Sir Denis Thatcher, Bt and The Baroness Thatcher, Chesshyre said of his profession, 'A herald gets £17.80 per annum from the Queen. We did get a 100 per cent pay rise in 1617 but they reduced it again in 1831. We get part of the client's fee but it's not a job you do for the money.'[24]

In 1981 Chesshyre was interviewed for a story in the German magazine Der Spiegel. He elucidated aspects of the origins of heraldry and commented on the depiction of the sexual organs of animals in coats of arms.[25]

Chesshyre's final public duties took place at the State Opening of Parliament on 25 May 2010 and at the Garter Day ceremony on 14 June 2010. On the former occasion Huw Edwards referred to him by name in his commentary, stating that he would be retiring in June after forty years of service.[26]

Chesshyre retired on 31 August 2010.[27]

Heraldic achievements designed by Hubert Chesshyre

One of Chesshyre's main professional duties as an officer of arms was the designing of coats of arms. The following is only a select list of well documented commissions which he executed.

Personal

Corporate

Ecclesiastical

Civic

Academic

Work as a genealogist

In the autumn of 1983 Chesshyre undertook genealogical research for the Rt Hon Michael Heseltine, MP, then Secretary of State for Defence. He succeeded in tracing Heseltine's ancestors down to the end of the eighteenth century, but dropped his enquiries after Heseltine was informed that further research would cost him £350.[50]

Other professional and personal activities

Chesshyre became a Freeman of the City of London in 1975. He also became a Freeman of the Worshipful Company of Musicians in 1994 and a Liveryman in 1995, reflecting both his long association with the City of London and his lifelong interest in music.

Chesshyre was a choral clerk at Trinity College, Cambridge[8] and a lay clerk at Southwark Cathedral from 1971 until 2003. He sang in The Bach Choir from 1979 until 1993 and was subsequently made an Associate Member of the choir and is also a donor to the choir.[51] Since 2002 he has sung for the London Docklands Singers. Since 1980 he has been a member of the Madrigal Society, the oldest musical society in Europe (see Madrigal (poetry)).[11]

Chesshyre also enjoys strong ties with Westminster Abbey. In 1973 he completed at the request of the Dean and Chapter of Westminster Abbey a report entitled 'The Restoration of the Regalia to the Tomb of Queen Elizabeth the First in Westminster Abbey: Research into the Identity of the Collar Missing from the Queen's Marble Effigy'. He found 'that there was no clear evidence that the missing collar was a Garter collar', suggesting instead 'the "Three Brothers" pendant and collar shown in the Ermine portrait of Queen Elizabeth as a suitable model for the restoration'.[52][53] He was later a member of the Architectural Advisory Panel, from 1985 until 1998, and then of the Fabric Commission, from 1998 until 2003. On 19 October 1995 HM The Queen unveiled the heraldic west window of the Henry VII Lady Chapel, donated by Sir John Templeton and devised by Donald Buttress, LVO, OBE, DLitt, FSA, Surveyor of the Fabric of Westminster Abbey. Chesshyre had been the heraldic advisor for this project.[54]

He was elected a Fellow of the Society of Antiquaries of London in 1977 and is a member of the Croft Lyons Committee.[55] Since 1983 he has been a member of the Cocked Hat Club (the Society's senior club), of which he was President in 1986.[20] He is also a Fellow of the Heraldry Society, elected in 1990 (currently one of just nineteen Fellows of the Society),[56][57] having been a member of the society's council 1973-85. He is also Vice President of the Institute of Heraldic and Genealogical Studies [58][59] and Patron of the Middlesex Heraldry Society.[60] He is also an Associate Member of the Society of Heraldic Arts.[61]

A Cambridge man, Chesshyre was a guest of honour at the Fiftieth Annual Dinner of the Cambridge University Heraldic and Genealogical Society held in the Great Hall of Clare College, Cambridge on 25 March 2000. The other guests of honour were the Master of Fitzwilliam College representing the Vice Chancellor, the Deputy Mayor of the City of Cambridge, Garter Principal King of Arms, York Herald, and the Chairman of the Federation of Family History Societies. Grace was said by the Most Reverend Maurice Couve de Murville, MA Camb, STL Institut Catholique de Paris, MPhil Lond, DUniv Open, Hon DD Birm, Archbishop Emeritus of Birmingham.[62][63]

Chesshyre has worked as a freelance lecturer in the United Kingdom and abroad. For many years he lectured for the National Association of Decorative and Fine Arts Societies and Speaker Finders.[11] In 1998 he delivered the Mountbatten Memorial Lecture for the Cambridge University Heraldic and Genealogical Society,[64] an annual lecture in honour of Admiral of the Fleet The Rt Hon The Earl Mountbatten of Burma, KG, GCB, OM, GCSI, GCIE, GCVO, DSO, PC, FRS, sometime President of the Cambridge University Society of Genealogists and Patron of CUHAGS. Other Mountbatten Memorial Lecturers have included David Sellar, FRHistS, Lord Lyon King of Arms, Sir Conrad Swan, KCVO, PhD, FSA and Sir Colin Cole, KCVO, TD, FSA, Garter Principal Kings of Arms (as well as Peter Gwynn-Jones, LVO, Lancaster Herald, later Sir Peter Gwynn-Jones, KCVO, Garter Principal Kings of Arms), and HRH Prince Michael of Kent, KCVO.[65]

Chesshyre had the honour of participating in the 27th International Congress of Genealogical and Heraldic Sciences at St Salvator's College University of St Andrews in the presence of HRH The Princess Royal (see Images).

Chesshyre maintains a close relationship with his public school, The King's School, Canterbury. In 2010 the school's Legacy Club (a club for Old King's Scholars pledging a proportion of their estate to the school post mortem) launched a tie whose design was contributed to by Chesshyre. The tie is blue scattered with silver mitres and golden crowns, reflecting the dual influence of Church and State on the school and the ways in which OKS have served both Church and State in return.[7]

Chesshyre 'contributed generously to an appeal for funds which enabled [the Victoria County History of Cheshire (vol. 5)] to be completed'.[66]

James Lees-Milne described Chesshyre in his diaries as 'handsome though over fifty, and charming to talk to'.[67]

Anthony Sampson referred to Chesshyre in his book The Changing Anatomy of Britain: 'Christ Church maintains its traditional disdain for twentieth-century activities, with an annual newsletter which reads like a parody of British snobberies, beginning with honours, Lords Lieutenants and royal service ('Mr DHB Chesshyre, formerly Rouge Croix Pursuivant, aptly became Chester Herald of Arms'), and ending with vulgar achievements in business, journalism and sport.'[68]

Contribution to historical scholarship

While still holding the Secretaryship of the Order of the Garter Chesshyre co-authored with Peter Begent a book about the Order with a Foreword by HRH The Duke of Edinburgh, KG and 'Dedicated with permission to Her Most Gracious Majesty Queen Elizabeth II Thirtieth Sovereign of the Order' (p. 4). The book was reviewed by Maurice Keen, OBE, MA, DPhil, FBA, FSA, FRHistS, 1984 Wolfson History Prize Laureate, Emeritus Fellow of Balliol College, Oxford, in Journal of Ecclesiastical History, 52/2 (April 2001), pp. 366–7. Keen described the book as, 'invaluable to scholars whose interests touch on the history of the order, from the widest variety of points of view and period specialisation.' He concluded that, 'Altogether, Peter Begent and Hubert Chesshyre have put together a volume that for its thoroughness, its interest and its physical attraction is a worthy tribute to the longevity of England's highest order of chivalry.'

The usefulness of the book has also been highlighted by Stephanie Trigg, FAHA, Professor of English in the University of Melbourne, who is currently writing a cultural history of the Order (funded by a Discovery Grant from the Australian Research Council).[69]

An obituary for Chesshyre's co-author Peter Begent, Master of the Worshipful Company of Bowyers 1996-98, by the Reverend John Hayton, TD (Court Assistant) and Richard Model (Upper Warden, and subsequently Master), described this book as 'the definitive work'.[70] The book has also been described as Begent's 'crowning achievement'.[71]

Chesshyre's study, co-authored with A.J. Robinson, The Green: A History of the Heart of Bethnal Green and the Legend of the Blind Beggar (London: Borough of Tower Hamlets, 1978) is described by Victor E. Neuburg as 'The best—indeed only—comprehensive account of the subject'.[72] A second edition was published by the London Borough of Tower Hamlets Central Library in 1986.

Honours

Commander of the Royal Victorian Order

On 11 June 1988 HM The Queen was graciously pleased, on the occasion of the Celebration of Her Majesty's Birthday, to appoint David Hubert Boothby Chesshyre a Lieutenant of the Royal Victorian Order.[73] On 31 December 2003 The Queen was graciously pleased to promote him to Commander of the Royal Victorian Order[74]
