Lt. Melvill: Well done, Sir! Did you see that Noggs? Deceived him with the up and took him with the down. Norris-Newman: Well well, this one's a grandfather at least. If he'd been a Zulu in his prime I'd have given odds against your lancer, Mr.Melvill.

In addition to the papers of Sir Henry Hotham, the largest collection of papers of a female member of the Hotham family are those of his wife, Lady Frances Ann Juliana
Hotham nee Rous, daughter of John Rous, the 1st earl of Stradbroke. About 50 of her letters from Admiralty House in Malta to her husband while he was at sea in the early
1830s are embedded amongst his papers at DDHO/7/42. However, the rest of her papers are scattered through the Hotham collection in the following places.
Lady Frances Hotham kept a notebook and book of poems belonging to her mother, Frances Juliana Warter Wilson and these are at DDHO/20/39-40, both dating from 1779. DDHO/20/53 is a 'Book of Conundrums' kept by herself in 1814, two years before she married Henry Hotham upon his return from the Napoleon Wars.

Sir Henry Hotham did very well out of his marriage to Lady Frances; her marriage settlement documents are at DDHO(3)/53/4 and they indicate that she brought to the marriage £53,333 6s 8d plus £10,000 through the money settled on her mother's marriage to her father in 1788. Lady Frances Hotham began her marriage in 1816 by keeping recipe and medicinal books and these are at DDHO/19/3-4 and she also seems to have inherited her mother's cookery and nursing collection (DDHO/19/5). She also kept scrap books while in Malta containing water colours of Maltese scenes and pictures of Maltese costumes (DDHO/20/56-7). DDHO/18/6 is a pocket book belonging to her and dated ayear after her husband's death. 1837 to 1848 she kept a journal of the travels of herself, her family and her friends (DDHO/18/12) and shortly after she seems to have started a diary and this survives for the years 1852-7 (DDHO/18/7-11). Apart from the letters to her husband, others from her to various correspondents are at DDHO/13/7, 10, 14 and span the years 1826-56. Letters to her from her husband through 1832 number 20 and are at DDHO/13/8. Henry and Frances Hotham had three children, Henry John Hotham (b.1822), Frederick Harry Hotham (b.1824) and Beaumont William Hotham (b.1825). The eldest was only 11 when Admiral Hotham died with the result that correspondence from him at Eton went to his mother (DDHO/13/9). Henry John Hotham, like his mother, received letters from Admiral Hotham from sea through 1832 and these survive at DDHO/13/15. The same bundle also contains later correspondence to Henry John Hotham, and includes a letter from W E Gladstone offering him a post as his private secretary in 1845. Lady Frances Hotham died in 1859 and the inventories of her personal effects and furniture at Silverlands, her house in Surrey, and at her house in Berkeley Square survive at DDHO(3)/50/1-4 (Foster, Pedigrees, iii). Papers from other members of this line of the Hotham family are deposited in the Brynmor Jones Library and they offer a fascinating insight into the effects of overseas expansion on Victorian families. Henry John Hotham's brother, Frederick Harry Hotham, Became the rector of Rushbury and he and his wife Eleanor had 11 children. His eldest son, Henry Edward (b.1855), was another Hotham to pursue a militarycareer. His papers are at DDHO/11 and they include reports from Eton and Oxford as well as documents relating to his training at Sandhurst. He kept pocket books and a diary related to his military service and, taken together with his letters home, they provide much of interest on South Africa during the Zulu Wars and on India (DDHO/11/15-17; 13/18).
