bullet  General Notes:

An E Pellier-Johnson was recorded as a racehorse owner in the 1880’s

Edward Pellier-Johnson, the son, had been made bankrupt and in 1890, there was a report in the Times about his application for an order for discharge.

He had been in the 9th Lancers and he was an only child.

In the Morning Chronicle (London), Monday June 11, 1855, a marriage was reported - “On the 7th inst., Edward Johnson, Esq, of Brompton-crescent, London, to Eliza Matilda, youngest daughter of Philip Pellier, Esq, of St. Helier, Jersey.” The question is which Philippe?? The most likely are either Philippe, son of Daniel and Elizabeth Bailhache, born in 1815, or Philippe son of Philippe and Esther le Bouef, born in 1817 and uncle of Charles de Chanval. Now Edward Johnson was a Liberal MP for Exeter. And we have a fair bit of information about him. Their son was named Edward Pellier-Johnson. An E Pellier-Johnson was recorded as a racehorse owner in the 1880’s. There is an obit for Edward Johnson who died in Algiers, aged 61 in 1895 – where it notes that he had married Eliza Matilda, daughter of Philippe Pellier. Now Edward Pellier-Johnson, the son, had been made bankrupt and in 1890, there was a report in the Times about his application for an order for discharge. There is some personal information about him, viz. that he had been in the 9th Lancers and he was an only child, i.e. Eliza Matilda only had one child. I have the full article. It was reported an obituary in the Times, Saturday, April 21, 1934, that Winifred Marie Nichols (née Pellier-Johnson), aged 46, daughter of Edward Pellier-Johnson, died in a motor accident on April 19th. In the Times, Tuesday, November 3, 1936, there was a Sotheby’s sale of antiques, the property of Mrs. Pellier-Johnson. In another article in the Times, Wednesday, October 30, 1912, there was an article titled Cases in Court concerning Edward Pellier-Johnson, 58, a traveller, where he was sentenced to 21 days in the second division for being drunk in charge of a motor vehicle. In the Winchester College Register (1836-1906) there is mention of Edward Pellier-Johnson, born 7 September, 1858, son of Edward Johnson Esq, M.P. etc etc.
