1. List: Professor George Parker (champion swordsman from 1851-71)
    Professor George Parker (champion swordsman from 1851-71) thumbnail image
    Public

    This is a collection of articles and advertisements about Professor George Parker, the celebrated swordsman (he was proficient with broadsword, sabre, scimitar, foil, bayonet, lance and single-stick, and was also a very accomplished boxer), who emigrated to Australia sometime between 1851 and 1853 (see below for the list of annotated links, in chronological order). He is thought to have been born in Great Britain about 1829, and he tragically died at the age of 42 years, after falling from a horse on 15th February 1871 at Toongabbie, Victoria, Australia. According to his death certificate, he was buried in Toongabbie on 16th Feb (the coroner's inquest was held on the same day). See the first item in this list for details of the likely location of his fatal accident.The 21st February 1871 issue of the Gippsland Times carries a tribute to Professor Parker, and also provides details of the support provided to his widow immediately after his death.

    (1) Note that the "Professor Parker" name was at first thought to be an alias used by a Corporal Newton, who served in the 1st Life Guards, but this has since been disproven - see the 5th paragraph for more details i.e. "The original Professor Parker's..."; the 6-8th paragraphs also provide a bit more background on Parker's life prior to emigrating to Australia, including the performances at the 1851 Scottish Fete at Holland Park, and at Saville House in Leicester Square, during the 1851 Great Exhibition.

    (2) The State Library of New South Wales has an ambrotype by Thomas Glaister that is thought to be a portrait of Professor Parker c.1857-58 - see: http://www.flickr.com/photos/statelibraryofnsw/7778430478/in/set-72157631058013910 Glaister's studio was located at 100 Pitt Street, Sydney, next door to the Royal Victoria Theatre - just a short distance from Professor Parker's School of Arms, at its various locations in King Street, York Street and Pitt Street. This ambrotype is also featured in the Inside History magazine (issue 11) and was added to their blog on 7th August 2012 - see: http://insidehistorymagazine.blogspot.co.uk/2012/08/top-10-things-you-didnt-know-about_7.html (see item no. 9 in "Top 10 things you didn't know about Sydney"). Also see the Evening News issue of 17th June 1905 for an artist's impression of Professor Parker (c.1855) preparing to cut a sheep carcase in two: http://trove.nla.gov.au/ndp/del/article/114052549?

    (3) In addition to the photo and drawing, there are also other scraps of information that provide a bit more detail on the Professor's physical presence e.g. the "Molong Argus" issue of 1st February 1907 (reminiscences from the 1850s and 1860s) carried this description: he was tall (6 feet 1 1/2 inches), well-built, and had an intimidating stare - as one boxing adversary put it: " I couldn't look at 'im ; he's got an eye like an hawk — seems to be burnin' holes in ye all the time he's lookin' at ye. An' while yer a considerin' how ter get in one — blest if yer don't get one in the chops.". The 19th Feb 1870 issue of the Cornwall Chronicle also has a more detailed report than usual of Parker's act, and also provides a little more insight into his and his wife's physical appearances; intriguingly, this report also mentioned that he was "...habited in a dark rifle dress with his Crimean medal on his broad chest..." ; news reports indicate that Parker was in Australia during the Crimean War (1853-56) - there's certainly no 6+ month gap in the reports that would confirm that he was out of the country, so this needs to be followed up. Maybe his own uniform (Life Guards?) was being cleaned and he had borrowed a rifle brigade uniform? See: http://nla.gov.au/nla.news-article65984989 (column 3)

    (4) Note that there was another Professor Parker who was also a well-known swordsman, and who may have benefited from using the original Professor's name from 1889 to 1902 (his real name was George Harford, and he joined the British Army around 1868; see the Daily News item dated 27th February 1896 for more details). Articles and advertisements mentioning the later Professor have also been included in this list for the sake of completeness i.e. as several "reminiscences" articles appeared in the 1890s and early 1900s about the original Professor Parker, it helps to make comparisons and remove any confusion between the two. George Harford is thought to have died in 1916 at Marrickville, New South Wales. There were other contemporaneous Professor Parkers, but these are not so easily confused as they were scientists and an elocutionist; however there was one Professor Parker who started performing as an escapologist in the 1890s and who styled himself the "Handcuff King"; it's possible that this was also George Harford as he did perform his swordsmanship demonstrations as part of a variety company, and may have branched out into other variety acts (his "day job" was mechanical engineer, so handcuffs would presumably have presented little challenge...).

    (5) The original Professor Parker's champion swordsman status was first mentioned in an Australian newspaper on 30th April 1853 (The Courier - advertising his first performance in Melbourne on 2nd May 1853) and this states that he was a gold medal winner at the 1851 Scottish Fete in Holland Park, London; however, no record of his award has yet been found under the name of Parker. A Corporal Newton (of the 1st Life Guards) won the gold medal for swordsmanship at the 1851 Scottish Fete, and at first it seemed that he might have used "Professor Parker" as his "stage name"; however, Corporal Newton died in England on 21st January 1854, so this theory was disproved - see the reference to the London Standard (25th Jan 1854) in the list of UK newspaper articles below. Also see the 3rd item in the main list of newspaper articles for a description of Newton's medal. The similarity between Corporal Newton's and Professor Parker's performances is reinforced by the article in the April 1850 edition of the "Household Narrative of Current Events" (published by Charles Dickens, the well-known author) in which Corporal Newton of the 1st Life Guards severs a sheep carcass in half with a single stroke from his broadsword (at the Life Guards' Rustic Sports, in front of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert) i.e. this is Professor Parker's signature feat in his subsequent shows during the 1851 Great Exhibition, and later in Australia and New Zealand (from 1853 onwards). See the 4th item in the list below. More research is required, but it does look as if the feats of swordsmanship displayed by Professor Parker were frequently attempted by members of both Life Guards regiments; it isn't clear who was the originator of the feats - it may have been Parker, but more evidence needs to be found to prove this one way or another.

    (6) The (London) Standard issue of 2nd August 1851 carried a report of a private fete at Hanover Park on 1st August in which Professor Parker took part; but, rather oddly, the reporter stated that the results of the swordsmanship feats at the 1851 Scottish fete had been misreported i.e. Professor Parker was also a gold medal winner winner, and that he (Parker) would shortly receive a medal for his victory (using the bayonet) against Corporal Newton (who wielded broadsword and target). Confirmation that Parker was in the Life Guards can be found in the 23rd January 1858 issue of the "Empire"; however, Parker claimed that he was in the 2nd Life Guards regiment (see advert in the Gippsland Times, 24 Jan 1871), whereas Newton was in the 1st regiment. In 1851, the 2nd Life Guards were based in Hyde Park barracks (very close to the site of the Great Exhibition), but I haven't been able to find Parker on the 1851 census return (for the barracks, or elsewhere). Also see the Bell's Life in Sydney article of 3rd November 1860 in which Parker's medal is mentioned i.e. "...wearing upon his left breast the Champion Medal of England, for bayonet against broadsword and shield, in July, 1851..."

    (7) Several news items and advertisements mention that Professor Parker was formerly of Saville House (and sometimes the Linwood Gallery, which was located within Saville House) in Leicester Square, London; and one advertisement mentions that he entertained 200,000 people at Saville House during the 1851 Great Exhibition - see the 15th August 1854 edition of the "Empire" newspaper in this list. This incredible number would mean that upwards of 8,000 people per week, on average, would have seen his demonstrations of swordsmanship (as the Great Exhibition ran from early May to mid-October). The history of Saville House and the Linwood Gallery can be found on the British History website: http://www.british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=41120 See the section titled "Nos. 5 and 6 Leicester Square: Savile House", which is located about half-way down the (very long) page.

    (8) A report in the 14th April 1870 issue of the Geelong Advertiser states that Professor Parker left the British Army prior to his arrival in Australia; a Mr Coppin was said to have engaged the Professor's services for a tour of the colonies - this was probably George Selth Coppin, the theatrical manager: http://oa.anu.edu.au/obituary/coppin-george-selth-3260 Also, the 20th April 1851 issue of Bell's Life in London carried an advert for an assault of arms at Savile House and this stated that Parker was an "ex-Life Guardsman", so it looks as if he had left the army before the 1851 Great exhibition was opened.

    (9) In Professor Parker's long letter to "Bell’s Life in Sydney and Sporting Chronicle" (well worth reading as it describes some of the sniping and bad feeling that had been directed at him), which was published on 13th July 1861, he mentioned that he had been in Australia 7 years, which doesn't quite match with his first Australian performance in Melbourne on 2nd May 1853. He was said to have served with the 12th Regiment of Foot in Australia (see item 1 in the list below i.e. "PRESTIGE, PRIVILEGE AND POLITE SOCIETY: THE ORIGINS OF FENCING IN NEW SOUTH WALES, 1800 to 1939 (pages 7-8)"), but it seems that that regiment didn't arrive in Australia until 1854. He is mentioned in a history of the 12th Regiment, but not as a serving soldier - see pages 160-161 of this document: http://freepages.military.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~twelthregiment/12th_Regt_History.pdf

    (10) Professor Parker set up a fencing academy in Melbourne (at 20 La Trobe Street West) in August 1853, and another in Sydney at 7 King Street West in July 1854, before opening his School of Arms at York Street (initially no. 35, but changed to no. 41 within a few days) in Sydney on 19th April 1855; he also had a cigar shop and smoking room (a Cigar Divan) in Sydney (at 7 King Street West), which started trading in October 1854 and seems to have relocated to his School of Arms in York Street in April 1855; the School of Arms moved to the Willow Tree Hotel in Pitt Street on 6th August 1855, and then to the Prince of Wales Hotel in Castlereagh Street on 26th May 1856. A new School of Arms was opened on 5th May 1858 at 39 York Street, Sydney.

    (11) He probably met Mary Ann "Annie" Beaumont, the popular serio-comic singer and character actress, in January 1863 at Ballarat when they are first mentioned together at the same performance; no details of their marriage have been found yet. News reports subsequent to Professor Parker's death on 15th February 1871 show that that her first performance as a widow was on 17th March 1871 at the Royal Colosseum, Melbourne. The Professor's friends organised a benefit performance for Annie Beaumont in Sydney on 14th July 1871. She was a founding member of the Colonial Combination Company in July 1871, and toured with them for a while; this didn't seem to last long as other reports show her performing as a member of the Adelphi Company, Beaumont and O'Brien's Star Combination Troupe, and the Trilby Speciality Company - it seems that she returned to New Zealand at the end of 1873; these reports have also been added to this list. The 6th Nov 1869 issue of the Riverine Herald mentioned that Annie was a student of the celebrated singer, Sarah Flower (1825-63: http://adb.anu.edu.au/biography/flower-sara-elizabeth-12919)

    This list is very much work-in-progress as there are many facts that need to be verified (birth, marriage dates, military career etc), and there are undoubtedly more news articles and records yet to be found.

    N.B. items in this list are placed in chronological (earliest first) order of publication, apart from the first three items - #1 investigates possible locations for Professor Parker's death at Toongabbie, and #2 and #3 were published recently but refer to the earliest events in Professor Parker's career.

    In addition, there are a number of UK newspaper articles that are only available on the http://www.findmypast.co.uk or http://www.britishnewspaperarchive.co.uk websites; due to copyright restrictions, the text cannot be reproduced here, but I have provided a summary of articles that are of interest:-

Other members of the 1st Life Guards also successfully attempted the cutting of a silk scarf.
    - Bell's Life in London, 20th April 1851 (page 3, column 1 "Assault of Arms"); an advertisement for Easter Monday entertainment at Savile House, Leicester Square - Professor Parker (as "Mr. Parker") was one of the performers - note that he was said to be an "ex-Life Guardsman", so that indicates he had already left the army by this time.
    - The Era, 27th Apil 1851 (page 1, column 3 "Assault of Arms" at Saville House, Leicester Square); Professor Parker was to perform his Coeur de Lion and Saladin feats; it was also mentioned that he had performed for the Queen at Windsor

    This paper describes the history of fencing in New South Wales, and includes some biographical notes on pages 7-8 about Professor Parker's career. Note that the authors believe that Professor Parker served in H.M. 12th Regiment of Foot, rather than the 2nd Life Guards in which my research indicates he served. Some news reports state that he left the British Army before emigrating to Australia, but this can only be confirmed if his military records are found.

    N.B. this paper incorrectly states that Professor Parker retired in 1896, so the authors must have missed the inquest reports and other news items that were printed after his death on 15th February 1871. The second "Professor Parker" (George Harford) was still the champion swordsman in 1902 - he apparently died in Marrickville (now a suburb of Sydney) about 1916 (he was probably 60-70 years old) - see news articles in the list below.

    see page 8 of the pdf; the inscription on the medal is shown below:-

    Awarded to CORPL.NEWTON
    1st. Life Guards
    FIRST PRIZE
    for Swordsmanship at
    THE SCOTTISH FETE IN
    Lord Holland's Park
    10 & 11 July 1851

    N.B. even though the description of this medal is "silver" it was actually the Gold Medal as Corporal Newton won first prize. In the 14th July 1851 issue of the Morning Post (London, England - see page 5, column 5), the swordsmanship medal winners were reported as: "SWORDSMANSHIP.- Corporal Newton was decided the champion, and is entitled to the gold medal. Silver medals are to be awarded as second prizes to Corporal Sutton and Sergeant Chalmers".

    see page 85 (April issue) ("Personal narrative") in which there is a description of a Corporal Newton carrying out Professor Parker's signature feat of cutting a sheep carcass in two with a single stroke from a broadsword.

    See extract: "On the 5th Her Majesty visited the cavalry barracks at Spittal to witness the conclusion of Rustic Sports, which have been going on during the week among the corporals and privates of the 1st Life Guards. These consisted of wrestling, a hurdle race—in which ten men ran about three quarters of a mile, taking fourteen leaps over hurdles,—jingling, and a broadsword combat between two corporals. The most extraordinary feat was that of cutting a sheep in two at one stroke of the broadsword. The carcass having been suspended on a tree immediately in front of the carriage in which Her Majesty and the Prince were seated. Corporal Newton took the sword—which had been handed to Her Majesty and the Prince by Colonel Hall for inspection—and with one blow severed the carcass in the middle.".
