Note on Husband: Joseph SPEED - shared note

Joseph Speed was gardener to H. Ray at Pymmes, Edmonton, which around 1851 was one of the most noted gardens in the London area. (Pymmes Park dates back to 1327 when William Pymme built a mansion here). He was "one of a select band of exhibitors who, by their splendid examples of cultivation, made the London Flower Shows not only famous on the score of horticultural merit, but popular among the upper ten thousand".(Gardeners Chronicle 19 December 1874)

He is named in the Horticultural Society Journal 1852 as winning:

The Large Silver Medal for six varieties of Cape Heath

The Certificate of Excellence for 15 Greenhouse plants


In 1851 he had the assistance of Thomas Speed, his younger brother



In 1881 census Edward Speed was staying with brother Joseph Speed at the Devonshire Arms.Also staying there was Rose Speed born 1874 a niece who was probably their brother Thomas Speed's daughter from Chatsworth House, and Walter Speed born 1875 a nephew who might have been Rose's brother.Their unmarried sister Betsy born 1819 Abington was also living there.

Joseph is described as a Licensed Victualler and Farmer.
