101 Mr. Carpenter was an officer in the Indian Army. CARPENTER
 
102 Arthur was a theatre performer who also used the name, Arthur John Hoseason. Mary was a "Gaiety Girl" at the Gaiety Theatre in the Aldwych [now gone]. Arthur had been singing at another theatre, and got called in as a fill-in at the Gaiety, where he met Mary and they fell in love. Arthur's time at the Gaiety was limited so, as they were both singers, they performed a duo and joined the circuits which toured England. They apparently changed their names regularly, appearing as the "Great Dundonalds" or the "Great .....", so that they could appear on the same circuits more often. Whenever Mary got pregnant, they would stop off at a convenient theatre where Arthur would act as theatre manager until after the birth, then they would set off on the circuits again. Being "theatricals" they used assumed names with mad abandon, and each of the children was given an overpowering number of names, and each had a different surname. Their life was rather unpredictable as, although they were good performers, neither one was star material. Arthur Neri Dundonald CATHREY
 
103 Ernest was a scenic artist. His death at age 55, at 29 Belgrave Crescent, Bath, was due to carcinoma ventriculi and cardiac failure. Ernest John Cochrane Cattermole CATHREY
 
104 Francis used the stage name, Frank Cochrane. He also made a living from singing, and went to the U.S.A. where the highlight of his career was being the first "Cobbler" ever to sing the "Cobbler's Song" in "Chu Chin Chow", a show-stopper in its day. Frank appears to have been very wealthy, and had a home in New York with a heated swimming pool in the garden. Francis CATHREY
 
105 George was named Arthur Neri Knollman Dundonald Chilton Cathrey at birth, but legally changed it to George Arthur Cathrey. His parents took over the management of the Gaiety Theatre in Blyth, Northumberland, at the time of his birth, until his mother was well enough to travel and work again. George lived in America for 30 years, where he changed his name. He was always called George, the name Arthur being reserved for his father. According to George, during his first 6 or 7 years of school age, he was at a different school every week, and he didn't get a solid education until he was sent to
the Actors Orphanage with his brother Frank. He has passed on much of the information on this branch of the family, and he, along with his brother Frank, believed that they had close connections with the Earl of Dundonald, spending time working through the Royal College of Arms determined to find some sort of link. George is now possibly dead.

111 Werner was a Lieutenant in the 13th Dragoons, with five years service at the time of his marriage. The regiment in which Werner served was known as the 13th Dragoons from 1751-83, then the 13th Light Dragoons from 1783-1861, becoming the 13th Hussars from 1861-1922. Werner joined in 1833, when they were the 13th Light Dragoons. Werner CATHREY

113 George was a water colour painter and was the youngest of a large family. His mother died when he was two years old, and he was educated by his wealthy father. At age 14, or before, he was apprenticed to John Britton, an actuary. George's brother Richard was a painter, and George also took up painting. In 1819, he commenced exhibiting in the Royal Academy, and in 1819 and 1821, sent in views of Peterborough Cathedral. He also exhibited in 1826 and 1827 (his sixth and final exhibition). In 1833, he became a full member of the Painters of Water Colours of the Royal Academy. Years of success
followed. In 1850, he withdrew his membership and had already refused the Presidency. He switched to working in oil paints and illustrated books. He was fond of driving stage coaches and mixed in with the social set of the times, meeting with Dickens, Carlyle and Count D'Orsay, and lived in the ex-lodgings of Lord Byron. He refused a knighthood in 1839, and the following month married Clarissa and took a house at Clapham Rise, living there until 1863. He was apparently good friends with Dickens, Thackery, Macready, Browning and Disraeli. In 1863, he was living at 4 The Cedars Road, Clapham Common and in September that year, heard that his son, in India, had died. Shortly prior to this he had also lost his youngest daughter. As a result of the two deaths, he became very depressed from which he never
recovered, and became s mething of a recluse. On his death, he was survived by his wife, three sons and four daughters. Leonardo (the eldest surviving son) was well known for his paintings of horses.

135 Alexander was a senior Royal Navy commander during the Napoleonic Wars. Born a son of the Scottish peer Thomas Cochrane, the eighth Earl of Dundonald, Cochrane joined the Royal Navy as a boy and served with British naval forces in North America, where he saw service in the American War of Independence.

Cochrane also participated in the Egyptian operations in 1801. When Alexandria fell, Cochrane, in the 74-gun third rate HMS Ajax, with the sixth rate HMS Bonne Citoyenne, the HMS Cynthia, the brig-sloops HMS Port Mahon and HMS Victorieuse, and three Turkish corvettes, were the first vessels to enter the harbor.

In 1805 he was made commander of the Leeward Islands station. He conducted operations against the French and Spanish at the Battle of San Domingo on 6 February 1806 in which a cannon ball blew his hat off his head while he was on the deck of his flagship, HMS Northumberland. He was appointed GCB (Knight Grand Cross of the Order of the Bath) on 29 March 1806.

Other rewards included thanks from both Houses of Parliament, freedom of the city of London, and a sword valued at 100 guineas. In 1807 he sailed in HMS Belleisle (74 guns) in the expedition against Danish Islands, and in 1809 commanded naval forces in the Conquest of Martinique.

From 1814, during the War of 1812, Cochrane, then a vice admiral, served as Commander-in-Chief of the North American Station, based at the new dockyard in Bermuda. He landed the force under General Ross that burned Washington and also pushed successful naval foray's at the same time. Initially he wanted to attack Rhode Island after the success at Washington, but was dissuaded by Ross and Admiral Cockburn who wanted to go after the bigger prize of Baltimore. During the Battle of Baltimore, he was responsible for the bombardment of Fort McHenry in Baltimore, Maryland which proved ineffectual and he resisted calls to more aggressively attack the fort by frigates. He did order a diversionary raid by boats to assist the Army encamped near Baltimore in their proposed attack on Hampstead hill (which they canceled and withdrew), but this diversion also had no success. The Army and Navy's failure at Baltimore effectively canceled out the success of Washington. The use of bomb vessels and rocket ship was the event which gave rise to Francis Scott Key's poem which became "The Star-Spangled Banner". He also led the British force that won the Battle of Lake Borgne in December 1814 and succeeded in giving the Army a hard short road to New Orleans for which to advance. However, the Army was defeated at the Battle of New Orleans in January 1815. The Battle of New Orleans was actually fought after Britain had signed a Treaty of Peace that was in transit to Washington for ratification.

The Duke of Wellington held that the failure of the New Orleans campaign was largely the fault of Cochrane, commenting in eulogy to General Edward Pakenham, killed at New Orleans, that:

"I cannot but regret that he was ever employed on such a service or with such a colleague. The expedition to New Orleans originated with that colleague... The Americans were prepared with an army in a fortified position which still would have been carried, if the duties of others, that is of the Admiral (Sir Alexander Cochrane), had been as well performed as that of he whom we now lament."

Despite the lack of success and damage to British prestige that occurred by the defeat of British forces at the Battle of New Orleans, Cochrane was promoted to admiral in 1819. From 1821 to 1824, he was Commander-in-Chief, Plymouth.

His death, which occurred at Paris, was fearfully sudden. Accompanied by his brother he went, on the morning of the 26th of January, 1832, to visit his daughter, Lady Trowbridge, for the purpose of inviting his young grand-children to an evening entertainment; but while he was affectionately caressing them he suddenly started, placed his hand on his left side, and exclaiming to Mr. Cochrane, "O brother, what a dreadful pain!" he fell back into his arms, and instantly expired.

137 Angelicas ancestry is somewhat obscure, as no record of her birth or baptism has yet come to light. In a miniature portrait by the British artist Thomas Hazlehurst, there is an inscription on the inside lid of the original travelling case which suggests, Angelica was apparently the 'natural' (meaning illegitimate) daughter of the Hon. John Cochrane, third son of Thomas Cochrane, 8th Earl of Dundonald. John's brother, Basil Cochrane, certainly left generous legacies in his will to Angelica and her three siblings, Rear-Admiral Nathaniel Day Cochrane, Colonel James Johnson Cochrane of the 3rd Guards and John Cochrane, an Attorney-at-Law in Madras, India. It seems likely that it was the latter brother, John, who was instrumental in bringing his sister together with her husband, for the Madras Courier of 24 August, 1803, records her as having very recently married Thomas Hoseason, a naval officer stationed in the colony.  Angelica COCHRANE
 
138 Little is known about Angelica other than that she was the 'natural' daughter of John Cochrane, brother to the 9th Earl of Dundonald. She appears to have been raised by John's brother the Hon. Basil Cochrane. The Gentleman's Magazine of 1834 records the death of Angelica Hoseason at Bath, stating she was the wife of Thomas Hoseason of Banklands, Lynn, Norfolk, and only sister of Capt N.D.Cochrane RN and Col J.J.Cochrane. Angelica COCHRANE

140 In 1769, at the age of 16, Basil sailed to India where he embarked on a career in the Civil Service. Based at Fort St. George, Madras, he was promoted to the position of senior merchant in 1780. In 1792, Cochrane became an agent for the management and distribution of liquors for the use of the army. He returned to England in 1808, retiring from the Service in 1810. Basil COCHRANE

147 Nathaniel was a British naval officer. He entered the Navy in 1784 and received a promotion to Lieutenant in 1800. In 1805 he was promoted Commander and assumed command of HMS Kingfisher. While on the West Indies Station he captured several vessels before bringing news to Sir John Thomas Duckworth's squadron that three French ships of the line had been sighted sailing towards Santo Domingo. He was posted with date of seniority of 26 March 1806, on his return to England with the news of the Battle of San Domingo. He subsequently commanded the frigates HMS Alexandria and HMS Orontes on the North Sea and Cape of Good Hope stations.

In 1812 he took command of the 74-gun third-rate ship of the line HMS Asia, and remained her commander until 1814. He finished his career as a Rear Admiral of the Blue. 
Nathaniel Day COCHRANE
 
148 The exact date of Nathaniel's birth is not known but, in the memoranda and notes of the Rev. D. F. Montmollin, the first incumbent of the English Cathedral in Quebec, the following item occurs:
Nathaniel Day Cochrane, natural child of John Cochrane, Paymaster General, and Genevieve Dulon, was baptized November 22, 1780. Godfathers: Nathaniel Day, Commissary-General; Alexander Dundas, Major of the 31st Regiment; Godmother: Elizabeth Walker.

149 Admiral Thomas Cochrane, styled Lord Cochrane between 1778 and 1831, was a senior British naval flag officer and radical politician.

He was a daring and successful captain of the Napoleonic Wars, leading the French to nickname him Le Loup des Mers ('The Sea Wolf').

He was dismissed from the Royal Navy in 1814, following a conviction for fraud on the Stock Exchange and he then served in the rebel navies of Chile, Brazil and Greece during their respective wars of independence.

In 1832, he was pardoned and reinstated in the Royal Navy with the rank of Rear Admiral of the Blue. After several further promotions, he died in 1860 with the rank of Admiral of the Red, and the honorary title of Rear-Admiral of the United Kingdom.

His life and exploits served as one source of inspiration for the naval fiction of nineteenth and twentieth-century novelists, particularly C. S. Forester's Horatio Hornblower and Patrick O'Brian's Jack Aubrey.

Cochrane had six brothers. One was Major William Erskine Cochrane of the 15th Dragoon Guards, who served with distinction under Sir John Moore in the Peninsular War. Another was Captain Archibald Cochrane.

Cochrane was descended from lines of Scottish aristocracy and military service on both sides of his family. Through his uncle, Admiral Sir Alexander Forrester Inglis Cochrane the sixth son of the 8th Earl of Dundonald, Cochrane was cousin to his namesake Sir Thomas John Cochrane who also enjoyed a distinguished naval career and became Governor of Newfoundland and later Vice-Admiral of the United Kingdom. The family fortune had been spent by 1793 and the family estate was sold to cover debts.
