SAUL, Henry Charles

1861 - ?

Henry Charles Saul, was born at Chelsea, London in 1861, son of Edmund Saul (1814-1885), clerk & collector at Park Chapel, and his wife Mary née Cooper, who married at Kensington, London in 1845. In 1871, 8 year old Henry was living at 26 Camera Square, St Luke, Chelsea with his parents, 56 year old Edmund and 48 year old Mary, and his three elder siblings, Mary 23, Emily 19 and Stephen 15. In 1881, a 19 year old, still living in Camera Square with his parents, no occupation given, and ten years later had taken over from his father as clerk & collector at Park Chapel and was living with his widowed mother still at Camera Square. He married at Chelsea in 1899, Eleanor Ann Bradbury (born 1868). A painting 'The Proclamation', dated 1901, hangs in Southwold Town Hall which depicts a crowd of people gathered in Southwold Market Place, receiving the news of Queen Victoria's death. It is signed by Henry C. Saul. The above is the only Henry C. Paul with correct dates at this time although he has no record being an artist. His later career has yet to be uncovered. This painting is probably the work of Henry Albert Saul [q.v.]
