BIOGRAPHY

When Ethel Emily Northcott Cottell was born on 23rd January 1869 in Tottenham, Middlesex, her father, Charles, was 52, and her mother, Fanny, was 39. She married Richard Jago Butler on 9th July 1907. She died on 5th April 1940 in London, London, at the age of 71.

Her father Charles George passed away in October 1888 at the age of 71.

According to the 1891 Census, Ethel was “living on her own means” at Imaness House, St Michael’s Road, Holdenhurst, Christchurch, Hampshire.   I can find no trace of the property now, but the number of occupants living there suggests that it was a Boarding or Guest House.

By the 1901 Census, Ethel had returned to London and was living with her mother, Fanny Cottell, at “Kingsdown” Mayow Road, Lewisham.

Ethel Emily Northcott Cottell married Richard Jago Butler on 9th July 1907 when she was 38 years old.

Following their marriage, the couple lived at “Brinscall”, 91 Mayow Road. Lewisham, quite close to where Ethel had lived previously.

These are the only photos I have of the couple.
Although the “At home” one was not dated, the “en promenade” one was dated on the photo itself as “July 1924”.

Her sister Fanny Marie died on 18th July 1917 when Ethel Emily Northcott was 48 years old.

Her husband Richard Jago passed away on 4th March 1931 in London, London, at the age of 82. They had been married for 23 years.

In the 1939 Register taken on 29 September, Ethel was a guest at the Mitre Hotel, Oxford.  She was only to live another four months.
As an aside, Pat and I had a “posh” morning tea at the Mitre Hotel when we visited Oxford as part of our first trip to England in the late 1970s.

Ethel Emily Northcott Butler died on 5th April 1940 in London, when she was 71 years old.
From her Death Certificate, I learned that the Hildegarde Stock mentioned in Richard Jago’s biography was, in fact, Ethel’s niece and, with Rose Greetham Butler (Peter’s sister), an executor of Ethel’s will.  A copy of the Will is included in the Evidence section.

Ethel was buried in what I assume was the Cottell family plot at Ladywell Cemetery, Lewisham, London, on 10th April 1940.
