Note on Husband: Charles Pembroke (1)

The firm of Paine and Brettell, solicitors of Chertsey, has been in existence since at least 1802 and can plausibly be traced to 1783 when Charles Pembroke, attorney at law, was in Chertsey. He was deputy steward of the manor of Chertsey Beomond at that date. He is referred to in a Phoenix Fire Insurance policy book as owning property in Chertsey in 1788 and was certainly active as a lawyer in 1792. By the time of his death in early 1803 he was in partnership with William Clark. The cash books of the firm containing accounts of receipts and payments by each of the partners and other references in the records show the changes that occured in the partnership. After Pembroke's death Clark was joined by Durley Grazebrook as partner in the firm in 1803. Clark died on 10 Sep 1843. Durley Grazebrook continued alone until the end of 1848 when he resigned in favour of his son Henry G Grazebrook.

Note on Husband: Charles Pembroke (2)

WHILST Sense and Genius mourn a patron fled,,

And Friendship weeps him with the silent dead !

Whilst deeper anguish, with its keenest dart,

Has pierc'd, alas ! the virtuous widow's heart !

Let conscious Truth proclaim, with ardour due,

How nobly PEMBROKE from the world withdrew !
