HASTIE, Grace Harriet (1839-1926)

Was born at Bishopsgate, London in 1839 and named Grace after her paternal grandmother, eldest child of James Hastie (1800-1859), a solicitor of 1 Grove Hill Terrace, Camberwell, and his wife Julia Catherine née Singer (1816-1904), who married at Dorking, Surrey in 1838.

Her father died at Camberwell in 1859 and in 1861 Grace was a 22 year old governess at 2 Springfield Terrace, Camberwell with her 44 year old mother Julia, a ‘house proprietor’ and they kept one servant.

By 1871 31 year old Grace was a teacher living with her mother at 216 The Grove, St. Giles, Camberwell, together with Grace’s 25 year old brother James Hepburn Hastie (1845-1901), a clerk at the war office and they kept two servants, a cook and a housemaid.  Grace then turned her hand to painting in water colours and in 1881 was a 41 year old artist still at 216 The Grove with her mother and three servants.

In 1891, she was living at 8 Champion Park, Camberwell, the home of her 45 year old widowed brother James, a senior clerk in the war office and his two children, his 74 year old mother Julia, ‘living on own means’, Grace, ‘artist in water colours’ and James who kept four house servants.  In 1901 Grace and her mother were still with living with James, by then retired, at the same address.

Her brother James died in 1901 and mother Julia followed in 1904 and in 1911 Grace was a 71 year old artist living at 39 Arundel Gardens, Notting Hill, London, the home of her 33 year old unmarried nephew Cecil Hepburn Hastie-Robertson, ‘private means’, and he kept three servants.

She died, unmarried, at Kensington in 1926, aged 87.
Submitted by Tony Copsey, Ipswich, Suffolk, England, who wrote: "I came across Grace Hastie when one of her water-colours, of the Market Place, Wickham Market in Suffolk, dated 1884 and I wondered whether she was a Suffolk artist, which proved not to be the case.  I took the information from the UK census and the BMD indexes &c.which are on-line."
