     Edward Denne After leaving school at 14 in 1884, from mid-1885 Edward started working in the grocer’s shop in Croydon owned by William Amos;
Whilst Edward may have been alive in 1888 (based on an inference in a letter from his father to his cousin Louisa Jane Davis [nee Denne] in Australia), he is not mentioned in his father’s 1890 will (perhaps they had become estranged), he was not living with the Amos family at the time of the 1891 census, doesn’t appear in the 1901 census, and there is no obvious marriage; he may either have died or, possibly, emigrated. With the four Amos sons, clearly he would not have seen any long-term prospects in the shop. There is a possibility that he died in Croydon in Q4 1886, at age 16 (to be confirmed). He was born on 9 July 1870 at Maidstone, Kent, England. He appeared in the 1871 census living at 91 Wheeler Street, Maidstone, Kent, England.

     Edward Collicot Denne was Whaler at Tasmania, Australia. He Edward Collicott, born 6 July 1829 and baptised on 15 January 1840; did not marry; a keen cricketer; a whaler, who later worked at the Dennes Point Post Office.

The Chancery Suit

John Thomas Denne and Edward Collicott Denne, sons of Anthony Smith Denne, were claimants on the estate of Sir Michael Benignus Clare (born on 27 March 1767; married Margaret Graham on 17 March 1807) who had no children and had died intestate in 1832. Clare was a great-grandson of Elizabeth Etherick, the fourth wife of JohnS kinner of Lydd, Kent (born 1651; died 1721). ASD’s mother, Jane Plummer (bapt 1749), was a also a grand-daughter of Elizabeth Etherick.

The High Court of Justice, Chancery Division, in London found in 1883 that Anthony, following the death of Clare’s neice Eliza in1872, answered the description of sole next of kin for Clare. ASD had died in 1873, and his sons JTD and ECD were therefore permitted to pursue the case.

The Court found in favour of JTD and ECD who, as heirs of ASD,were paid (subject to confirmation) an amount of £1570.15.0. from Clare’s estate.

One may wonder how JTD and ECD were able to show that they were Clare’s next of kin. It is believed (based on a letter from John Rayner Denne to Louisa Davis in 1887) that Lucy Denne, sister of Henry Hadarezer, had felt entitled to the Clare estate, and was disappointed at the outcome of the chancery suit, but it is not clear what her grounds were (nor how she could have pressed a claim as she died in1 878). Perhaps ASD’s claim was stronger than Lucy’s as he was from the previous generation - and, once his position as next of kin had been established in 1872, his sons succeeded to that right of claim even though ASD died the following year.

Edward lived at Woodlands, Dennes Pt. in his old age but when he became sick he moved to Lyndenne at Barnes Bay where Arthur and his wife Ellison looked after him. He was born on 6 July 1829 at Sorell, Tasmania, Australia. He was baptized on 15 January 1840. He died on 27 January 1915 at Barnes Bay, Bruny Island, Tasmania, Australia, at age 75 died at the home of his nephew Arthur. He was buried circa 30 January 1915 at St. Clement's Anglican Church Cemetery, Kingston, Tasmania, Australia.

     Elizabeth Denne Elizabeth had presumably left home to find work at about age 14. She was born on 15 July 1864 at Chilham, Kent, England. She appeared in the 1871 census at 91 Wheeler Street, Maidstone, Kent, England.1 She appeared in the 1881 census living at 1 Cambridge Villas, 27 Sheldon Street, Croydon, Surrey, England. At the time of the 1881 census, aged 16, she seems to have been living with her step-brother William Amos and his family (wife Kate, sons John H and Ernest W aged 1 year and 2 months respectively, and nurse Alice Wells, 17) (she may have been just visiting, as a Mary Wood, noted as a visitor born in Chilham, was also recorded at the Croydon address on that date). (registered in East Ashford.)1 She died in 1883 at England.
