The Honourable Mrs Charles Addington

A carte-de-visite portrait of the Honourable Mrs Charles Addington (1843-1912).

Born Nelly Hindmarsh Mundy in 1843, she was a daughter of Alfred Miller Mundy and his wife, Jane née Hindmarsh. She appears on the 1861 census, living with her parents and older sister at Shipley Hall in Derbyshire. At the time of the census she was 17, so she was born in or about 1844. She was born in South Australia. Her grandfather, Rear-Admiral Sir John Hindmarsh, had been the first Governor of South Australia from 28 December 1836 to 16 July 1838.

On 5 August 1862 Major the Honourable Charles John Addington, third son of Viscount Sidmouth, married Nelly, second daughter of A. M. Mundy, Esq., of Shipley Hall, Derby.

In 1885 her husband was cited as one of the co-respondents in the divorce of Mr and Mrs Thomas Bosvile of The Grove, near Basingstoke.

The Honourable Mrs Addington died in 1912, aged 69. The death was registered in the district of Windsor, Berkshire.
