Surprises! – Edward John Dartnell

I recently dug out some old paperwork I had collected on my maternal Dartnell family and discovered that my 2 x great grandfather Edward John Dartnell was working in The Atheneum Club in Pall Mall, London. 

The 1851 Census shows that he was working at this Gentleman’s Club, so now I am off on a hunt to see if I can find staff records of sorts from that time.  I am hoping there is an archive for the Club somewhere as it is still going today and it would be very good to learn more about it.

The Club where my 2 x great grandfather Edward John Dartnell was working in 1851

I’ve been having a browse on the internet to see what there is about the Atheneum and it’s so good to see the photos of  it – very grand!!  It must have been a wonderful place to work in, although probably very hard work at the time.

It’s going to be interesting finding out more about this!!
