___________________________________________________________ Captain John Henry JELLICOE of 2 Northfield, George Street, Ryde.

John Henry JELLICOE came to live in Ryde in 1873. According to a local directory of 1879 a John Henry JELLICOE Esq. was living at 3 Northfield, George Street. (this would appear to be an error as he lived at 2 Northfield)

The first lease on the property for 2 Northfield, dated 24 March 1848, was in the names of James Player Lind and others.

With later re-numbering this property became 87 George Street.

Later the property was known as Jellicoe House and for a time was a Guest House.

Information provided by Liz Black based on notes made during property research in George St some years ago.


ISLE OF WIGHT TIMES Thursday 10th September 1914


The whole British public will learn with regret that the death took place at Ryde on Monday of Capt. John H. JELLICOE, father of Admiral Sir John JELLICOE, in supreme command of the Grand Fleet.

Captain John JELLICOE, who belonged to an old Southampton family, has been all his life connected with the Royal Mail Steamship Co., rising at an early age to the position of captain, and being for many years commodore of the fleet. After his retirement some twenty years ago he joined the board of directors, with which he remained associated up to the last. Although in his 90th year Captain JELLICOE retained his vigorous activity almost to the end. He leaves a widow, two sons, and two daughters, the elder son being the Rev. F. G. G. JELLICOE, rector of Freemantle Southampton, and the younger the distinguished Admiral. Captain JELLICOE was a typical English gentleman of the old school. He had travelled far and wide, and had become in the best sense a man of the world, with sure knowledge and clear judgement. The funeral takes place this Thursday.

ISLE OF WIGHT TIMES Thursday 17th September 1914


The funeral of Capt. JELLICOE, whose death we announced in our last issue, took place at Ryde on Thursday amidst signs of the deepest sympathy and respect. The first part of the obsequies was held at Holy Trinity Church, the officiating clergy being the Rev. Hugh LE FLEMING (vicar of Ryde) and the Rev. Noel STUBBS (curate of Holy Trinity). The choral service was most impressive. The opening sentences were recited by the Rev. Hugh LE FLEMING and the lesson was read by the Rev. Noel STUBBS. The hymns "Let saints on earth in concert sing," "Jesus lives," and "O God, our help" were sung; the last is sung every morning at 8 o'clock by the men of the Navy now in the North Sea, at the express wish of Admiral Sir John JELLICOE. The Nunc Dimittis was chanted, and as the mourners left the church the organist (Mr Percy JAMES) played Mendelssohn's "O rest in the Lord."

The principal mourners were The Rev. F. G. G. and Mrs JELLICOE, Miss JELLLICOE, Lady JELLICOE, Miss JELLICOE and Miss Rose JELLICOE, Mr Edward KEELE and Mr LE FUERVE (nephews), Drs. DAVIES and WADHAM, Flag-Commander BROOKE, R.N.
