Past Presidents of Dublin Chamber of Commerce

Leland Crosthwait was the foremost Dublin merchant of his time, who concentrated on the mercantile rather than the political. A founder member of Dublin Chamber of Commerce in 1783, and a Presbyterian, he was born on 15 December, 1747 to Thomas Crosthwait (1714-1783) and Mary Maquay. The Crosthwait family originally came to Ireland at the time of Cromwell from Cumberland in England. Three of his six daughters married three sons of Joseph Hone. One of his sons-in-law was William Hone, a previous president of Dublin Chamber.

Horace Hone (1756-1825) Miniature portrait of Nathaniel Hone (1760-1819) Watercolour on ivory, oval, 4.5 x 3 cm (1.75 x 1.25'') framed in a gold oval locket with gilt and painted decoration inside the glass, the reverse is decorated with interwoven locks of the sitter's hair and his initials NH in seed pearls signed and dated: 'HH (monogram) 178... (last digit indecipherable)' inscribed on labels 'Nathaniel Hone my great-grandfather' and 'Nathaniel Hone 1760-1819 married Hannah Dickinson was Lord Mayor of Dublin son of Brindley Hone' Provenance: by descent in the Hone family, Private collection. Nathaniel Hone of 79 Fleet Street was a successful merchant and High Sheriff of the City of Dublin from 1798-9. He was elected an alderman in 1803 and became Lord Mayor of Dublin in 1810-1. The sitter was the son of Brindley Hone, a pin merchant of Usher's Quay and a nephew of the artist Nathaniel Hone RA and a first cousin of the miniaturist Horace Hone who painted this portrait. This miniature portrait is typical of Horace Hone's earlier work in his use of diminutive linear brushstrokes. The portrait is extremely neatly drawn and carefully painted. The details of the sitter's face are painted in short parallel lines, which are closely spaced creating a smooth surface. The coat and neck linen are painted in gouache.

Past Presidents of Dublin Chamber of Commerce

On 18 March 1783 Travers Hartley chaired the first meeting of the nascent Dublin Chamber of Commerce, shortly after his election as the initial president. He had been a leading light in the Committee of Merchants

since the 1760s. He was born in 1723, the second son of James Hartley, a barber surgeon, and Alice Travers.

Being a Presbyterian and dissenter, Hartley was very aware of the sectarian nature of business in Dublin at the time.

Hartley married on 11 February, 1749, Anne Spence, described in the newspapers as 'an agreeable young lady with a £3,000 fortune'. Ann died soon after the marriage, and he was married for a second time on 28 March 1752 to Anne Gibton by whom he had one surviving son, James (d.1810), who never married, and five daughters. His youngest daughter Anne married Addison Hone (1773-1797), the youngest brother of Alderman Nathaniel Hone, a future President of Dublin Chamber.

SEE: The Irish Builder, Vol.XXXVIII, 1 Apr.1896, ‘Travers Hartley and his Family’, by Richard J.Hone

NOTE: Son Bridley HONE was b. 1796. Given the age of the father, 23, I would suspect this was a 1st child, and hence the marriage was abt 1795.

In the course of the report on the Stonyford, County Kilkenny, wool factory, 9 December 1819, he declared that both his father and his grandfather had been woollen manufacturers in the Dublin Liberties. He was a member of the R.D.S. agriculture committee 1831-54. Joseph Hone was a supporter of catholic emancipation and a signatory of the protestant petition for catholic relief in 1829. He was described in the Dublin street directories as an attorney, and a solicitor, with offices at 21 North Great George’s Street (1834), and 22 Lower Leeson Street (1850). He was also listed as a member of the Ouzel Galley Society, the Law Society, and St Peter’s Provident Institution, and as a director of the Corn Exchange Buildings Company, and the Dublin and Drogheda Railway Company. Between 1807 and 1839 he proposed or seconded fifteen candidates for membership of the R.D.S. Most were members of the Dublin mercantile community, the exception being the 9th earl of Fingall whom he seconded in 1835. Joseph Hone was deleted from the R.D.S. membership list in 1858.
