Social Victorians/1897 Fancy Dress Ball

Devonshire House Fancy Dress Ball, 2 July 1897Edit

LogisticsEdit

1897 July 2, one of the major social events of the "season" of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee

The invitations were for 10:30 p.m., but people began to arrive about 10:00, and the Duke of Devonshire came down to greet the Prince and Princess of Wales at 11:00 p.m.

The invitations asked people to dress as monarchs and their courts from the past or as goddesses or figures from antiquity.

Weather: According to the Times, it was 63 degrees at midnight in London, just as the ball was getting underway, with a dew point of 58, which means that it would not have been as oppressive in all those leather, velvet and satin costumes as well as metal armor as it could have been.[1]

Location: The party was at Devonshire House, in Picadilly, hosted by Louisa Cavendish, the Duchess, and Spencer Compton Cavendish, the 8th Duke of Devonshire.

Who Was There We Might Recognize NowEdit

The people who attended this party belonged to the most elite circles of society and were in the social networks of Albert Edward, Prince of Wales and Louisa Cavendish, Duchess of Devonshire. The people in these networks were not the same as the people in, for example, Queen Victoria's networks. The social network of the Prince of Wales did not exclude people who were divorced, involved in extra-marital relationships, or associated with scandal or gossip. It also included Jews, Americans, businessmen and the nouveau riche, and actors and actresses, even if they were not particularly wealthy, so long as they were beautiful, witty and able to keep the prince amused. In their day, they were celebrities, the subjects of newspaper reports and were considered stylish, "fast," and social leaders. Many of these people would not be familiar now to many of us. The ones that we might find familiar include the following:

  • Albert Edward, Prince of Wales later King Edward VII, and Alexandra, Princess of Wales, later Queen Alexandra.
  • George of Wales, Duke of York and Princess (Victoria Mary) May or Mary of Teck, later King George V and Queen Mary, Queen Elizabeth II's grandparents.
  • Frederick Arthur Stanley, 16th Earl of Derby, who commissioned the first Stanley Cup and presented it to Canda.[2] The entire Stanley family were engaged with hockey when Frederick Arthur Stanley was Governor General of Canada (1888 to 1893).[3]
  • Lady Frances, Countess of Warwick, called Daisy, the person for whom the song "Bicycle Built for Two" was written.
  • Winston Churchill, who was at the ball by virtue of his mother's popularity in these social networks; he was 24 in 1897 and so unknown that no contemporary newspaper reported his attendance.
  • A number of Rothschilds were present: Lady (Emma Louise von Rothschild) and Lord Rothschild (Nathan Mayer de Rothschild), Baron F. de Rothschild, Mr. and Mrs. L. Rothschild (possibly Leopold and Marie Perugia Rothschild), Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, Alfred Rothschild (?), Cyril Flower, Lord Battersea, and Constance de Rothschild Flower, Lady Battersea. Louisa, Lady de Rothschild also attended.
  • William St. John Freemantle Brodrick, later Viscount Midleton, related by marriage to Agatha Whitehead von Trapp,[4] first wife of Georg von Trapp and thus the mother of the 7 children in the von Trapp singers. (Agatha Whitehead von Trapp died of scarlet fever in 1922, and Georg von Trapp remarried in 1927 Maria August Kutschera, former novice of Nonnberg Abbey.[5]) Some controversy exists about the accuracy of this genealogy.
  • While few of us would recognize the name Henri Louis Bischoffsheim, we might recognize the bank he founded: Deutsche Bank.
  • Alfred Beit was a Life Governor of De Beers and friend of Cecil Rhodes.

Descriptions and Contextualizing InformationEdit

The attendees were presented to the royals in Quadrilles and the Courts of Female Monarchs, goddesses, and so on.

Workers at the BallEdit

A number of people were present in their roles as servants or attendants or, as in the case of the photographer Lafayette or the musicians, for example, as staff of the party itself. Others helped prepare for the ball, from the gardening staff at the Duke of Devonshire's manorial estate, Chatsworth House, who brought flowers from Derbyshire for decorations at the ball, to costumiers, perruquiers, and so forth.

Describing a later social event in which the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire, as Mayor and Mayoress, decorated Devonshire House again, the Sussex Agricultural Express refers to some of the men who worked for the Duke and Duchess in January 1898, about half a year later: <quote>Mr. J. P. Cockerell, the Duke of Devonshire's indefatigable agent called to his aid a willing and competent staff from Compton Place [in Eastbourne], including Mr. W. S. Lawrence, the house steward, and Mr. May, the gardener</quote>.[6]

Staff who were named as present at the 1897 ball included

  • Mr. J. P. Cockerell, staff for the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire
  • Mr. W. S. Lawrence, staff for the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire
  • Mr. May, staff for the Duke and Duchess of Devonshire

Artists Associated with this EventEdit

Photographers

James Stack Lauder, known as Lafayette because that was the name of his firm, was invited by the Duke of Devonshire to set up a temporary studio in the garden and take portrait photographs of the guests in their costumes at the ball.

While Lafayette is in many ways the most important photographer documenting the costumes for this event because he was present at the ball, with the imprimatur of the Duke of Devonshire, other photographers also took part in documenting this event. We see their work in the Diamond Jubilee Fancy Dress Ball album of 286 photogravure portraits made of ones taken a week later by Lafayette as well as ones made by other photographers were collected as a hostess gift for the Duchess and given to her in 1899. A copy of this album is in the National Portrait Gallery and has been digitized.[7]

Painters

The "fashionable miniaturist" Amelie Küssner painted the Prince of Wales in his costume.[8]

According to the Western Daily Press, H. A. Stock, a "much-admired" west-of-England painter, <quote>represented one or two of the personages taking part in the Devonshire House fancy dress ball</quote>.[9] At the 32nd Exhibition of the Royal Institute of Painters in Water-Colours that opened 12 March 1898, Mr. Stocks exhibited a <quote>portrait of a well-known society lady in the costume she wore at the Devonshire House fancy dress ball</quote>.[10]

At least one of the portraits in the Diamond Jubilee Fancy Dress Ball album is a painting rather than a photograph.

Sculptors

The Marchioness of Granby, who at this time was Violet Manners, commissioned a bust by George Frampton.[11]

MusiciansEdit

Two ensembles were present and providing music, Lacon and Ollier's Blue Hungarian Band and, early the next morning, the White Hungarian Band. One was called an orchestra and the other a band: according to the Guernsey Star, <quote>The orchestra was placed in close proximity to the ballroom, and another band played a programme in the garden</quote>.[12]:p. 1, Col. 2C

The evidence about the Blue Hungarian Band comes from an advertisement run in the Morning Post:

Lacon and Ollier's Blue Hungarian Band.

Cymbalos, Berkes Geza and Miska.

has arrived in town for the Season. — Engagements for balls, receptions, &c., to be made to 163A, New Bond-street, W.

This band was specially engaged for the Duchess of Devonshire's ball on Friday last.[13]

According to a letter to the editor of the Pall Mall Gazette by "One Who Was There," the White Hungarian Band was present at the very end.[14]

Costumiers and PerruquiersEdit

Besides people who made the costumes (costumiers) and wigs (perruquiers), embroiderers and jewelers are mentioned although not named in the newspaper accounts.

Costumiers

Among those who helped construct the costumes and wigs include the following:

  • Mr. Alias, of Soho Square
  • Mr. W. Clarkson, of Wellington Street
  • Messrs. Simmons and Sons, of the Haymarket
  • Nathan, of Coventry Street
  • Simmons, of King Street, Covent Garden
  • Madame Frederic, of Lower Grosvenor Place
  • Mrs. Mason, of New Burlington Street
  • Mr. Willie Clarkson, the "Royal Perruquier"
  • Doucet
  • The House of Worth
  • Mr. Caryl Craven

The Morning Post named Mr. Alias in association with the royals, as well as mentioning several other costumiers by name:

The costumes worn by the Prince of Wales, the Duke of York, and the Duchess of Connaught, as well as many others were supplied by Mr. Alias, of Soho-square. Those worn by the Grand Duke Michael of Russia, the Duke of Manchester, Princess Victor of Hohenlohe, and others were made by Mr. W. Clarkson, of Wellington-street, who also supplied the wigs and headdresses for the Royal Family. Messrs. Simmons and Sons, of the Haymarket, made a large number of costumes, including those of the Duke of Somerset, the Marquis of Winchester, Earls Beauchamp, Carrington, Ellesmere, and Essex. Nathan, of Coventry-street, and Simmons, of King-street, Covent-garden; Madame Frederic, of Lower Grosvenor-place, and Mrs. Mason, of New Burlington-street, also made some of the principal costumes.

Messrs. Simmons and Sons, of the Haymarket, made a large number of costumes, including those of the Duke of Somerset, the Marquis of Winchester, Earls Beauchamp, Carrington, Ellesmere, and Essex.

Nathan, of Coventry-street, and Simmons, of King-street, Covent-garden; Madame Frederic, of Lower Grosvenor-place, and Mrs. Mason, of New Burlington-street, also made some of the principal costumes.[15]:p. 8, Col. 2A

According to the Derbyshire Times and Chesterfield Herald, citing the Daily Mail,

Lady de Grey is going as Zenobia, and is getting her dress from Doucet, I hear, while Worth also is making a great many costumes; but the greatest number are being made in England. The Duchess of Portland, the Duchess of Hamilton, Lady Mar and Kellie, and Miss Muriel Wilson are all going to the costumier in Soho-square, and Alias has also been summoned to Marlborough House for a consultation. Mr. Caryl Craven, who is so clever in such matters, is helping the Duchess of Leeds with her dress; in fact, everyone seems pressed into the service, and the result will be one of the most brilliant sights that ever was seen.[16]

Which costumier was this: "A well-known West End dressmaker booked for the Duchess of Devonshire's fancy dress ball orders representing £27000."[17]

Perruquiers

Mr. W. Clarkson "supplied the wigs and headdresses for the Royal Family."[15]:p. 8, Col. 2A

At the Duchess of Devonshire's ball, on the 2d inst., the Prince of Wales looked as if he had stepped out of a masterpiece by one of the old painters. His wig, which completed a correct make-up as Knight of Malta, was specially made and fitted by that favoured "Royal Perruquier" Mr Willie Clarkson, who also had the honour of making and fitting the wigs worn by Prince Charles of Denmark, the Duke of York, and the Duke and Duchess of Connaught, and of dressing the hair of the Duchess of York and the Princess Victoria of Schleswig-Holstein. Mr Clarkson also supplied a number of the costumes, including those worn by the Grand Duke Michael of Russia, Princess Louise, and the Duke of Manchester. It would not be safe to say how many crowned heads have literally "passed through the hands" of Mr Clarkson. The art of the perruquier is a very difficult one, requiring historical knowledge, patient research, and great taste. It is most essential to the success of any theatrical performance or of an historical ball.[18]

Clarkson also provided costumes and wigs for the amateur theatricals that the royals took part in to entertain themselves.

Anthology of ReportsEdit

A collection of excerpts of descriptions from the newspaper and magazine reports, called here an anthology, gives a sense of what people read about the event.

Reporting on this event began months before it, as soon I think as rumors that it would take place began to circulate, and continued for many months after; it occasionally shows up in a newspaper report years later.

People PresentEdit

Missing from the List: Indian DignitariesEdit

Missing from this list are the dignitaries from India, who were said to have been present. According to the Dundee Evening Telegraph dated 2 July 1897, the day of the party, "The Duchess [of Devonshire] has secured the attendance of many of the Indian Rajahs, who have merely to present themselves in the gorgeous dresses with which they have decorated London drawing-rooms during the past fortnight. ... — London Correspondent."[19] In a letter to the Editor of the Pall Mall Gazette on 6 July 1897, "One Who Was There" is lamenting about how, now that the ball was over, people would not see the beautiful costumes again. Unlike most of the people who attended, however, "The Indian princes were happy in their lot — no hired possessions theirs, but treasure trove, and they could play at dressing up whenever they pleased."[20] Describing wearing Indian late-19th-century native dress as "play[ing] at dressing up" reveals perhaps that part of the attraction of inviting these people, who were likely in London for Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee celebrations, were their colorful and exotic clothing.

No other newspapers stories talked about the presence of many Indian Rajahs, but perhaps the reporters didn't see them arrive or depart and didn't know who they were. These dignitaries are likely to have been in London to celebrate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee; perhaps their names can be guessed from those named at other events from about this time.

Duleep Singh (at 605) was not a dignitary from India: he was living in London at this time.

A list of people whom it would seem likely would have been at the ball but are not mentioned in the press are below, in the section People Absent.

Possible ErrorsEdit

  • #657: It seems logical that Lady Helen Stewart is Lady Mary Stewart, Helen Mary Theresa Vane-Tempest-Stewart (at 43, right after her mother). Helen Stewart-Murray, daughter of the Duke of Atholl (at 657) may be a misidentification unless I find her having come dressed as somebody else than Archduchess Marie Christine in the Archduchess Marie-Karoline and Emperor Joseph II section of the Austrian Court of Maria Theresa Quadrille, which would make #657 empty.
  • #397: The Ladies Villiers were in a quadrille with the Ladies Ker: The Ladies Ker are at 23, two women. If each woman had one sash, then there were 2 ladies Villiers and 2 ladies Ker. Lady Edith Villiers (at 653) was definitely in the Cosway quadrille; Lady M. Villiers (at 433) is probably Lady Margaret Villiers, so that might be both the Ladies Villiers. If so #397 is empty now? (Mr. E. Villiers is at 326.)
  • The Times article[21] lists both Mrs. George Curzon and then later Mr. and Mrs. Curzon; was George there? or was this another couple? Several people are treated this way, mentioned earlier in the Times article and then apparently showing up later, with fewer honorifics, especially if they are Hon.'s. Also, there may be duplicates because of variant spellings of the names.

Attendants of the People Who Were PresentEdit

A number of people present at the ball were not invited in their own right and were there as attendants.

Listed in the descriptions of the people at the ball and their costumes are some people who were clearly there as attendants:

  1. "Black attendants" followed the Court in the Empress Catherine II of Russia procession, preceding the Italian procession.[15][21]
  2. There were unnamed Imperial Trumpeters in the Court in the Empress Catherine II of Russia procession. They had to really be able to play the trumpet so perhaps were hired musicians?
  3. Heralds led the Queen Elizabeth Procession, but they are not named, so they were probably not invited guests but servants or attendants of some kind?
  4. According to the Leamington Spa Courier, the Countess of Warwick's "four pages shared in the compliments."[23] According to the Guernsey Star, Lady Warwick "was accompanied by four boys dressed in white satin, with three-cornered hats to match."[24]
  5. The Marchioness of Tweeddale also had two pages: "The Marchioness of Tweeddale was Joséphine, wife of Napoleon, in white satin, wrought with gold and a deep rose-coloured train, trimmed with ermine, and borne by two pages in mauve velvet, embroidered with gold."[24]
  6. Princess Henry of Pless had black and white pages: "As the Queen of Sheba, Princess Henry of Pless was attended by five black pages and five white, in gorgeous dresses, who carried her train."[24]

In the large list of people who were present for the ball, above, attendants are listed with the people for whom they worked; typically royals had attendants with them.

Attendants of ColorEdit

Clearly, some of these attendants were black people (especially at 1 and 6). The vocabulary the newspapers used ranged from "Black" to "Negro" to the actual n-word (for American Minnie Paget?). The Aberdeen Journal of 4 August 1897 ran a story, "Black Boys for London Ladies," that refers to the black attendants at the Duchess of Devonshire's ball:

Titian’s pictures (says London correspondent) have made us familiar with black boys forming part of the train of certain great ladies. The Prince of Wales brought a Nubian boy home, and for a time he was in the Marlborough House and Sandringham households. The Duchess of Marlborough is very often accompanied by a black boy in Oriental scarlet and gold, who seems but live to obey her grace’s behests; for his dark, piercing eyes follow her every movement, giving him a weird look, which is increased by the curious incision in his cheeks. At the Devonshire House fancy ball the glory of the great Oriental procession was much increased by the Nubian boys, who carried palm-leaves over some of the queenly heads.[25]

We need to know more about these children.

People AbsentEdit

The London Daily News and the Times reported as attending Lady Hindlip, who was not able to attend, according to the Morning Post, suggesting that they may have gotten a list of people attending from something other than onsite reportage.

Of the people who were not present but seem missing because their immediate family, for example, was present, some are women, the wives of the people named. So perhaps they did not court newspaper attention? Of the men who might have been there, logically, perhaps they did not dress in costume and thus did not receive mention? (We know some men attended the ball and were not in fancy dress.)

  1. Lady Hindlip, because Lord Hindlip was ill, according to the Morning Post, in "Arrangements for This Day," the article immediately preceding their big article on the ball.[26] According to the London Daily News, she was there, but perhaps its report was assembled before the event or without knowing that she ended up not going: Lady Hindlip was to have been in the Queen Elizabeth procession as "Maid of Honour, in yellow satin and brocade."[27]:p. 5, Col. 7A According to the Times article, both Lord and Lady Hindlip were among the guests, though perhaps its reporter got a list of people invited.[21]
  2. Colonel Brabazon "unavoidably prevented" from attending.[28]
  3. Mrs. Hwfa Williams, because she was in mourning.[29]
  4. Mr. Hwfa Williams, also, probably?
  5. Fanny Ronalds was there, but Arthur Sullivan's name is not listed; was he there but not in an interesting costume? Or not present?
  6. Lady Violet de Trafford was there (at 238, above), but her husband? or son?, Sir Humphrey Francis de Trafford, 3rd Baronet, is not listed.
  7. The "Ladies Lilian and Norah Spencer Churchill, the Hon. Mrs. A. Bourke, Mr. and Mrs. Henry White, and Mr. H. Milner" were at a party at Blenheim Palace in December 1897 in which people did tableaux that got reported on, many of whom wore the costumes from the Duchess of Devonshire's ball.[30] Of this group, Mr. Henry White is at 310; Lilian Maud Spencer-Churchill is at 634; Norah Beatrice Henriette Spencer-Churchill is at 635; the Hon. Mrs. A. Bourke is at 236; Captain G. Milner, who is probably not Mr. H. Milner but may be related, is at 617.
  8. Mrs. Henry White isn't listed as present, but Mr. Henry White is at 310, and Margaret "Daisy" Stuyvesant Rutherford White is now at 151. I believe she was present because both Whites were photographed in costume and that photograph is in the album at the NPG.
  9. Lord Churchill is listed as being at the party at Blenheim Palace, also, though he is not listed as being at the ball.[30] Perhaps Lord Churchill is Jack Churchill, Lady Randolph Churchill's son? or one of the sons of the Duke of Marlborough?
  10. Even though Henry Maurice William Oppenheim and his daughter, Rosalinda Oppenheim were present, Mrs. Isabel Georgina Oppenheim (who does not appear to have been Rosalinda's mother) is not listed anywhere as being present.
  11. Jesusa Murrieta del Campo Mello y Urritio (née Bellido), Marquisa de Santurce attended the Duchess of Devonshire's fancy-dress ball at Devonshire House. Possibly her husband, José Murrieta y del Campo Downey, 1st Marques de Santurce, was also present.
  12. William Cansfield Gerard, Lady Mary Gerard's husband: she was present (at 256) and represented in the album, but he's not mentioned.
  13. The Hon. Mrs. Gwendoline Lowther (at 672), was present, but her husband, whose brother was Hugh Cecil Lowther, 5th Earl of Lonsdale and who would be later in his own right, was not?
  14. Rosamond Fellowes, Lady de Ramsey (at 329) was present, but William Fellowes, Baron de Ramsey was not?
  15. Florence Canning, Lady Garvagh attended the ball. Where was Charles Canning, Lord Garvagh? Did he just not get mentioned?
  16. Nellie, Countess of Kilmorey (at 207) attended the ball, but Francis Needham, Earl of Kilmorey did not?
  17. Prince Leopold's wife, Helena, Duchess of Albany wasn't there?
  18. Princess Beatrice didn't go?
  19. Lilias Bathurst is not listed has having attended the Duchess of Devonshire's ball, although her husband Henry Bathurst, 7th Earl of Bathurst, her parents Algernon Borthwick, Lord Glenesk and Alice, Lady Glenesk and her brother Oliver Borthwick were there. A child was not born to her in 1897 as far as I can tell, although we may not be able to know about a miscarriage. Perhaps she was present and not reported on.
  20. Lady Louise Loder is not listed among the attendees at the ball; was she there and just not reported on? No child was born that year, but she was bearing children during this time. Gerald Loder is at 100.

Questions and NotesEdit

  1. According to the Western Gazette, three men dressed as Lorenzaccio, whom Sarah Bernhardt was performing at the Adelphi, appeared at the ball.[31]:p. 2, Col. 7C
  2. Possibly another group of young women similarly dressed occurs here: "three young girls were noticeable as Reynolds's "Three Ladies Waldegrave"[32]:11, 4a The 1780–81 Joshua Reynolds' The Ladies Walgrave shows 3 young women, probably in "Oriental cream satin," but no "coloured silk sashes" are apparent: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Ladies_Waldegrave#/media/File:Sir_Joshua_Reynolds_-_The_Ladies_Waldegrave_-_Google_Art_Project.jpg. Cosway is not Reynolds, so unless one of the reports made a mistake, so these are not Villiers daughters or the Innes-Ker daughters.
