Timeline[edit | edit source]

1863 August 6, George Baden Crawley and Eliza Inez Hulbert married.[2]

1886, Eliza Inez Hulbert Crawley and Captain John Eliot Pringle married.[2]

1887, a story about a current cricket match in 1901 recalled this story from 1887 with Mr. E. Crawley, who because of other cricket stories must surely be Eustace:

Mr. E. Crawley, the old Harrovian, had in 1887 an experience somewhat akin to that of Mr. Smith at a later date, for so uncertain was the Light Blue Captain as to whom he should give his final cap, that in the last of the trial matches he arranged with the M.C.C. captain to play twelve men a side, with the proviso that only eleven should field; on the Cambridge side Mr. Crawley was the batsman who stood out so far as fielding was concerned. Up to the beginning of this match Mr. Crawley had proceeded to the wickets on five occasions, and only scored 38 runs, whereas Mr. F. Meyrick-Jones, who was also in the running for the final place in the eleven, and who a year later when awarded his "blue" on the day of the match more than justified his choice, seeing that on going in when eight wickets were down the dark horse, as he turned out to be, made the top score of the match, had already scored a fine innings of 67 for the 'Varsity against Mr. C. I. Thornton's team. In this trial match, however, Mr. Meyrick-Jones scored the unwelcome pair of "spectacles" and Mr. Crawley, putting together 16 and 19 not out, was awarded his "blue." That the "dark horse" came in with a canter in the subsequent 'Varsity figure is proved by the fact that he scored 35 in the first and 103 not out in the second innings of a remarkable match, in which the eleventh choices of both sides did far and away better than any other of the players taking part in the fixture.[7]

1891 November, Friday, The Sussex Express, Surrey Standard, Weald of Kents Mail, Hants and County Advertiser says, "Viscount and Viscountess Hampden are entertaining a number of guests at Glynde Place, including Lord and Lady Brassey, Colonel, Mrs., and Miss Clifton Brown, Mr. and Mrs. MarshaH [probably Marshall] Brooks, Mr. E. Crawley, and Mr. Freeman Thomas."[8]

1902 January 23, Thursday, Mr. Ernest Crawley and Miss Gathorne-Hardy married:

The marriage of Miss Violet Gathorne-Hardy, elder daughter of Colonel the Hon. C. and Lady Cicely Gathorne-Hardy, to Mr. Ernest Crawley, was solemnised yesterday afternoon at St. Saviour's Church, Walton Street, London. The chancel was decorated with palms, ferns, and white flowers and / the service was full choral. Colonel Gathorne-Hardy gave his daughter away. She wore a dress of white satin, veiled in chiffon and Brussels lace, and made with a long train, which was borne by Master Goschen, attired in page's costume. There were eight bridesmaids, nearly all of whom were children — Lady Violet Bentinck (daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Portland, Miss Muriel Gathorne-Hardy, Miss Dorothy Gathorne-Hardy, Miss Marjorie Nevill, Miss Marguerite Nevill, Miss Crawley, Miss Phyllis Goschen, and Miss Pringle. They wore pretty costumes of cream colour, relieved with touches of pale green, with green beaver hats to match.[11]

1904 December 14, Eustace Crawley and Lady Violet Ella Finch married.[13]

Costume at the Duchess of Devonshire's 2 July 1897 Fancy-dress Ball[edit | edit source]

At the Duchess of Devonshire's fancy-dress ball, Mr. E. Crawley (at 693) was dressed as a "gentleman of the period of Charles I. ... from Pettie's picture of 'His Grace.'"[14]:p. 36, Col. 3b
