HUBBARD. – VIZARD. – On 10th July, 1888, at St. Paul’s Church, Hemel Hempstead, by the Rev. E. J. Gallop, Arthur John Hubbard, M.D., son of the late John Waddington Hubbard, M.R.C.S., formerly of Market Bosworth, to Charlotte Marian, youngest daughter of the late Edward Vizard, Esq., formerly of Dursley. No cards.


This locally and domestically interesting event, which has been looked forward to for some months in this neighbourhood, took place in St. Paul's Church on Tuesday morning last.

The time fixed for the commencement of the ceremony was 11.30. a.m. but before that period arrived, the church, with the exception of the reserved places, was filled with a congregation prepared to give attention even to every minute circumstance which might appear.

The chancel of the church was most tastefully and appropriately adorned by Mrs. Gallop and Miss Heale, with very beautiful flowers, which gave an aspect of light elegance to the more serious adornments of this part of the building.

The bridegroom was Mr. Arthur John Hubbard, M.D. a member of the firm of Messrs. Ambler, Steele, and Hubbard, surgeons. Dr. Hubbard during his three years’ residence in this town, has gained the respect and good will of all classes of the inhabitants by his pleasant and courteous manner, by his skill and his careful attention to his patients. The Bride was Miss Charlotte Marian Vizard, daughter of the late Mr Edward Vizard of Dursley then Dover. The young lady has been assistant to her sister in the Convalescent Home at Marlowes. Marlowes is part of H.H.

Among those who occupied foremost places in the church were Mrs Hubbard, Emma Evans, mother of the bridegroom; J. John Evans, Esq., J.P., D.L., L.L.D., etc., uncle of the bridegroom; Lewis Evans Esq., J.P., his cousin, Mrs Heale, Mrs Gallop, Mrs Ambler and the Misses Ambler, Dr Steele, etc. The Bride’s relations and friends, who took the places assigned to them shortly before the arrival of the Bride and Bridegroom were – Mrs Vizard, Ann Foley, mother of the Bride; Miss Anne Elizabeth Vizard, Lady Matron of the Convalescent Home, and Miss Louisa Vizard, her sisters; Mr Philip and George Vizard, her brothers; Mr William and Mrs Jessie Vizard, also a sister, Carter; Mr Herbert Vizard and Mrs Crowdy, her cousins.

Owing to the recent death in the family of the Bride, Edward Vizard 1810-1888 there was very little display in the wedding party. The Bride’s relations were dressed in black. The Bride was led up the nave by Mr Philip Vizard, and the Bridegroom was accompanied by Mr George Hubbard, brother, his best man. These formed, strictly speaking, the wedding party, and as there were no bridesmaids, it presented a very unpretentious appearance on meeting the officiating Clergyman at the entrance to the chancel, where the first part of the service was gone through.

The service was full choral, the officiating clergyman being the Rev. E. J. Gallop. The choir on entering sang “The voice that breathed o’er Eden.” Miss Heale was organist. The Bride was given away by Mr Philip Vizard. Brother.

The Bride was dressed in steel tricotrian silk. A gold Maltese cross locket was given by Mrs Hubbard and a gold bracelet given by the Committee of the Kings College Hospital Convalescent Home, on whose behalf it was presented to the Bride by Mr Cunningham, the Chairman of the Committee.

At the conclusion of the service at the altar the Rev. E. J. Gallop gave an earnest address ton the newly married pair, and then the hymn No. 375, commencing
Now thank we all our God
With heart and hands and voices
We have no doubt the congregation in singing the lines
And keep us in His grace,
And guide us when perplexed
And free us from all ills.
In this world and the next.

expressed their wishes towards the newly married couple.
