(incl) Mr W. F. Hulley is (Swansea) and was engaged, and a good selection of dances was played,
under the leadership of that well-known instrumentalist. As the Prince of Wales stated, when Mr Hulley's
band played at the Royal ball at Swansea, that he had never danced to better music act of London, it is
scarcely necessary to remark that the quality of the music on Friday night was all that could be desired.

the successful series of public concerts at the Drill-hall, Swansea, was brought to a conclusion on
Saturday night by a very enjoyable and well-attended performance. During the evening Sir J. Jones
Jenkins had the pleasing duty of presenting the able conductor, Mr W. F. Hulley, with a beautifully-
mounted baton for his efforts in connection with the concerts.

1887 06 Apr - Western Mail - Mr Hulley's band discoursed some excellent music during the dinner, and Ambrose
Hulley gave a musical performance.

1888 04 Apr - Western Mail - A New Local Opera. Production at Swansea.
On Tuesday night, a new comic opera, written by Mr Albert Siedle and composed by Mr W. F. Hulley, was
produced for the first time at the Drill-hall, Swansea, before a large and appreciative audience. This is
the second opera which has come to us from the pen of Mr Hulley, and some of the tuneful numbers of
the last are still fresh in our memory, lending themselves, as they did so admirably to the dance. The
production was noteworthy from the fact that the exponents of the opera, from the composer to the
supers, were all residents of Swansea.

1890 Jan 11 - Trewman's Exeter Flying Post - Madame Patti and the "Rustic" Opera.
Just before Madame Pattie left Wales for America. She summoned Mr W. F. Hulley, of Swansea, to
Craig-y.-Nos Castle for the purpose of presenting through him to the members of the Rustic Opera
Company souvenirs of their recent performances at the castle. It will be remembered that a few weeks
ago the members of the local Opera Company were invited to produce the joint production of Mr Hulley
and Mr Searle, before the Diva and a distinguished company. So delighted was she with it that she
immediately presented to Miss Flynn, the leading actress, a valuable brooch, and she premised every
member of the company - about 50, incl. the orchestra a souvenir of the visit.
She has kept her promise in the most handsome way. Mr Hulley receives a very valuable pin, comp-
-osed of diamonds and other precious stones; Mr Seidle and Mr Crews, a native of Plymouth, beautiful
diamond rings. The value of the presents is estimated at least £150. Madame Pattie is having a bijou
theatre built at the castle, and on her return from America, it will be open with the production of Mr
Hulley’s more popular opera, "The Coastguard."

1890 23 Aug - Daily News - A first performance at Madame Pattie's new theatre and opera house at Craig-y-Nos was
given last night, when St David’s Amateur operatic Company performed, under Mr W. F. Hulley's
leadership, Mr Hulley’s opera, "The Conspirator." There was a large attendance. At the close, Madame
Pattie was presented with a congratulatory address. Mr Irving will attend the formal opening next year.

1892 03 Dec - The Era - Now that Madame Patti is again at Craig-y-Nos, the dramatic and musical performances,
under the able direction of Mr W. F. Hulley, Swansea, have recommenced. At one given last week
before Madame and a large party staying at the castle Master Ernest Hulley, a lad of twelve, and eldest
son of Mr W. F. Hulley, made his debut in the musical world, playing two solos on the violoncello in
remarkably good style, and being specially complemented by Madame and Signor Nicolini.

1891 14 Aug - Dover Express - PATTI’S NEW PLAYHOUSE. Madame Patti’s splendid new theatre forms the northern
wing of Craig-y-Nos-Castle. It is a superb little house, and no expense was spared in decorating it. The
stage is fitted with every appliance that modern dramatic art calls for. But the most unique thing about
the establishment is the floor of the auditorium, which can be raised from a slant of one inch in 20 to an
exact level with the stage. Mme. Patti has in this way managed to combine in one building a perfect
theatre and ball-room.
The façade of the theatre, which is turned towards the court in front of the castle, is very pretty. Over the
door are carved in large letters the words:
PATTI THEATRE
Still higher up is a statue emblematic of histrionic art, which the mountaineers all say looks like Mme.
Patti herself.
The programme for the opening of this theatre on August 12 was long ago prepared. The famous
hostess herself arranged to herself - as the chief attraction - appear on the stage in the first act of
“Traviata” and in the garden scene of “Faust.” Signor Arditi, who has been a chief figure in so many
brilliant opera house on “Patti nights,” engaged to personally conduct at the formal inauguration. He
was promised for support an orchestra from Swansea, with Mr. W. F. Hulley as first violinist. It was the
production of Mr. Hulley’s opera, “the Rustic,” in the spacious winter gardens, that first gave Mme. Patti
the idea of building a theatre of her own.
It is impossible to exaggerate the beauty of Craig-Nos Castle as it stands at this moment in the wide
valley with its brawling little river that sings its way down to the ocean. The illustration gives but a faint
idea of the savage grandeur of this place. Its giant rocks, shooting boldly up against the sky and
throwing shadows over the castle itself; its immense vista of valley meadows, dotted here and there
with tiny cottages ; its silentness, its remoteness - all make the fairylike castle stand out brilliantly, with
its billowy green terraces, its gorgeous gardens, its conservatories glowing with colour and fragrance
transported from the corners of the earth.
Here all are welcome. It is a fortress of hospitality. No visitor ever waits at the door. Mme. Patti is
particularly kind to literary men and journalists. She is never too busy to see them and show them
what the hospitality of a Welsh castle is.

1896 May THE SWANSEA AND SOUTH WALIAN - No. 3 Vol.1 May 1896 pps 81, 82
OUR MEN OF MARK. (No.3) MR. W. F. HULLEY. Professor of Music
. An expert on the violin at six years of age, and, at ten, playing a solo before a very large audience, the
subject of our sketch thus began his musical career under the inspiration of something like genius,
culminating in being deservedly recognised and appreciated as one of the leading musicians in Wales.
He was born at Great Yarmouth in 1853, surrounded by a musical atmosphere, for his father, imbued
with the same love of the art as that which he imparted to his talented son, has held the post of organist
and choirmaster for the last half-century at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, in the well-known Norfolk centre
in which his son first saw the light. He was also musical director for many years of the Theatre Royal,
Great Yarmouth.
With an early musical training such as these various important appointments held by his father neces-
-sarily imply, no wonder that the son should have made his mark in the world as a musician. He studied
in piano and organ under the late Mr. Fred Rolfe, a favourite pupil of good old Dr. Buck. of Norwich
Cathedral, among whose early students may be named such men, prominent in the present day, as Mr.
A. R. GauI, of Birmingham, the popular composer of “Ruth,” “The Holy City,” Joan of Arc,” &. ; Dr.
Bunnett, Henry Stonex and many others. Thus well-grounded, at the age of 14, the subject of our sketch
undertook the duties of organist at St. Mary’s, Great Yarmouth, which duties he fulfilled with great credit
till 1873. In those early days it was his ambition to become a military bandmaster, and his father placed
him with Herr August Dorla, the then bandmaster of the “Prince of Wales’ Own” Norfolk Artillery, with
whom he studied from 1870 to 1873. During that time the young musician had the honour of playing
with that excellent band at Sandringharn during the winter festivities of their Royal Highnesses the
Prince and Princess of Wales and their distinguished guests; also at Lord Suffield’s, the then Colonel of
the Regiment, at Gunton Park and during the Royal visit to Lord Hastings.
In September 1873, Mr. Hulley entered upon his duties as musical director at the Star Theatre, Swansea,
resigning that position in 1881. In 1876 he was appointed organist and choirmaster at St. David’s,
Rutland Street, succeeding the late Mr. Bargeer Wall, and celebrating his twentieth year of office on Palm
Sunday last, when he was presented by the Rev. Father Phillipson and the clergy with a handsome
souvenir to mark the event.
During his long connection with the choir of St. Davids, and with their co-operation, Mr. Hulley has pro- -
-duced most successfully the chief of Gilbert and Sullivan’s comic operas. He is also the composer of two
comic operas of his own, “ The Coastguard “ and “The Rustic” the libretto of the former being written by
Carl Morganwg, and of the latter by Mr. A. Siedle. In October, 1888, “The Rustic” ‘ was performed before
their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Teck and Princess May, now the Duchess of York, the
Royal party personally congratulating the composer on the great success of his work. The same opera
was produced at Craig-y-Nos Castle in 1889 at the request of Madame Patti-Nicolini to whom the
composer had the honour of being introduced by the late Lord Swansea.
Subsequent to this, Madame Patti-Nicolini resolved to build a Theatre at Craig-y-Nos and in August
1890, the structure was informally opened with “The Coastguard,” in the presence of Madame Patti-
Nicolini and a most distinguished company; the performers being the St. David’s Amateur Operatic
Company, and the orchestra being led by Mr. John Squire. The grand official opening of the Patti Theatre
took place in August, 1891, when Madame Patti-Nicolini, assisted by Signor Nicolini, Madame Valda,
Signor Novara, and Mr. Durward LeIy, performed ‘Traviata,” “Faust,” “Martha,” and “Romeo and Juliet,”
during the week’s festivities. Mr. Hulley’s orchestra and chorus were engaged at three performances,
under the conductorship of Signor Arditi, Mr. Hulley himself playing principal first violin, and since that
event he has enjoyed the privilege and honour of being musical director of the Patti Theatre.
Mr. Hulley has for many years been connected with the Swansea Choral Society, and from 1880 was
leader of the orchestra. under the late Mr. Silas Evans and under the baton of the late “Eos Morlais,”
when Gounod’s” Redemption” and many other fine works were produced. In 1893 Mr. Hulley was
unanimously elected conductor after the death of “Eos Morlais.”
Mr. Hulley’s orchestra is so well known in South Wales that it needs no special mention, with the
exception of recording the success attained at the Royal ball in Swansea, on the occasion of the
opening of the Prince of Wales Dock, when their Royal Highnesses the Prince and Princess of Wales
expressed themselves most pleased with the music. Mr. Hulley’s next piece of Royal patronage was at
the ball held at Pembroke Dock in May, 1891, on the occasion of the launch of the warship “Empress of
India.” The Duke of Edinburgh and the Duke and Duchess of Connaught were present, and to quote
The Lady of May 21st, 1891, “Mr. Hulley’s well-known South Wales band played so admirably that they
were specially complimented by the Royal guests. who pronounced the music to be as good as that of
any of the celebrated London bands, both as to time and sweetness.”
The great efforts which Mr. Hulley has made to popularise instrumental music in Swansea has been
gauged by the success of the Saturday Popular Concerts during the winter seasons, the results being
beyond all praise. Mr. Hulley holds the appointment of bandmaster to the Pembrokeshire Yeomanry
Cavalry, and, with his band, is present at the annual training of the regiment held at Tenby and
Haverfordwest alternately. He is also one of the hon. local examiners for the Royal College of Music.
The portrait we give of Mr. Hulley, which is both striking and life-like, is from a photograph specially
taken by Mr. V. Arthur Smith. St. Helen’s Road, Swansea.

1897 Jul - THE SWANSEA AND SOUTH WALIAN - July 1897 Page 311 - MUSIC AND THE DRAMA.
Mr. W. F. Hulley, who during the last 25 years has been associated with many of the best musical
productions in Swansea, and was for a number of years the musical director of the Wind-street Theatre
and Star Hall of Varieties, has been appointed conductor of the Orchestra at the new Grand Theatre,
which Messrs MorrelI and MouiIlett erected in Singleton street, Swansea, and which place of amuse-
-ment will shortly be completed. The band will consist of fifteen well-trained instrumentalists, all of whom
will be selected from Mr. Hulley’s popular musical combination. We understand the new appointment
will in no way interfere with Mr. Hulley’s private musical arrangements, and that he will continue to
provide bands for fashionable parties in Swansea and district and the adjoining counties.

on Monday at St David’s Roman Catholic Church, Swansea. The nuptial knot was tied in the presence
of a number of relatives and friends of the contracting parties by the Rev. Father Phillipson, assisted by
the Rev. Father Mullin. The bride was given away by her father. She wore a white, soft silk skirt, with a
pretty bodice, entirely composed of chiffon, trimmed with Valenciennes lace and insertion, and a stylish

meeting of the congregation was held for the purpose of presenting Mr. W. F. Hulley (organist) before
leaving Swansea for bis native town (Great Yarmouth) with a token of esteem and recognition of his
devoted services.
Father Aspinall (rector) expressed intense gratitude for all the devotion Mr. Hulley had shown.
Mr. W. L. Kelleher stated the parishioners had spontaneously subscribed £110 for presentation.

For two years he had had longing to return to his native town, but expressed regret at leaving Father
Aspinall so early in bis rectorship, and reviewed with much humour the characteristics of the old
rectors of St. David's. His association with Swansea commenced from 1867, when he first visited with
his father for some months in the Theatre Royal in Temple Street, where he played second violinist at
the age of 14, followed in 1873 by his permanent residence in Swansea, and recalled to mind his

OBITUARY

1929 16 Nov - Great Yarmouth Independent & The Journal
Late Mr. W. F. HULLEY
Yarmouth Composer and
Musician.
After a long illness, Mr. Wm. F. Hulley, a well-known Yarmouth composer and musician died on Sunday
at his residence 109, Wellesley Road, Mr. Hulley was the son of the late Mr. W. Hulley, formerly the well-
known orchestral leader at the Theatre Royal, Yarmouth, and closely connected with musical matters in
the town for fifty on sixty years. Mr. W. F. Hulley was a very familiar figure in local musical circles and the
talented organist and choirmaster at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Regent Road. He was in his 76th year,
and leaves a widow, three sons and two daughters viz., Mr. Ernest Hulley, cellist on tour with the “Desert
Song” Company; Mr, Reginald Hulley, professor of music at Stonyhurst College; and Mr. Percival Hulley
well-known as the musical conductor for the Great Western Railway Co.’s Operatic Society, London; the
two daughters being Mrs. Page and Mrs. West. By the death of Mr. Hulley the post of organist at St.
Mary’s, which has been held by the family for 80 years, will pass from this notable musical family, viz.,
Mr. Wm. Hulley sen., his son, Bernard Hulley, and the deceased (who was the elder brother of the latter),
who was last in the succession.
AN EARLY START
Mr. W. F. Hulley became proficient on the violin at six years of age and played solos in public at the early
age of 10. He was born in Great Yarmouth in 1859, and received his early musical training from father,
and also studied the piano and organ under the late Mr. Fred Rolfe, of Great Yarmouth, a pupil of Dr.
Buck, of Norwich Cathedral. At the age of 14 he became organist at St. Mary’s, and carried out the
duties until 1873. He was placed with the celebrated Hern Augustus Dorla who, at the time, was the
bandmaster of the Prince of Wales’ Own Norfolk Artillery, studying the intricacies of instrumental music,
and the duties of a military bandmaster. Whilst in the P.W.O. this young musician played at Sandring-
-ham, and at Gunton Park during the Royal visit to Lord Hastings. Mr. Hulley was appointed musical
director at the Star Theatre, Swansea, and in 1876 organist and choir master at St. David’s, Rutland
Street, Swansea. During more than 20 years at St. David’s he successfully produced many of the Gilbert
and Sullivan operas, and himself was the composer of two comic operas viz., “The Coastguard” and
“The Rustic,” the latter being performed before their Royal Highnesses the Duke and Duchess of Teck
and Princess May (Duchess of York). The opera was performed in 1889 at Craig-y-Nos Castle, at the
request of the late Madame Patti-Nicolini. This renowned artist subsequently built a theatre at the
Craig-y-Nos, which was opened in 1890 with “The Coastguard,” in the presence of Madame Patti.
LEADER AND BANDMASTER
At Swansea in his capacity as leader of the orchestra he took part in the performance of the grand
operas “La Traviata,” “Faust,” “Martha,” and “Romeo and Juliet,” the conductor being Signor Arditi. Mr.
Hulley’s well known South Wales band was in request on most special occasions, and he did much to
popularise instrumental music in Swansea. He held the appointment of bandmaster to the Pembroke
Yeomanry Cavalry, and was one of the local examiners for the Royal College of Music.
Mr. Hulley came back to his native town of Yarmouth in 1920 with the intention of settling down into
private life, but was induced to accept an engagement as bandmaster for the Norfolk Military Band
during the summer season on the Britannia Pier, and subsequently undertook the duties respectively of
orchestral leader at the Aquarium Theatre and the Theatre Royal. He was the composer of numerous
songs, orchestral works, and Church music, his principal efforts being a Mass known as “St. David’s”
which was given at St. Mary’s Church on the occasion of the deceased’s golden wedding in 1926, the
work being conducted by his son, Mr. P. A. Hulley, of Worcester; the other Mass being a beautiful
composition in E flat.
The internment took place on Wednesday, at the Roman Catholic Cemetery, Caister Road, after a
Requiem Mass, at St. Mary’s, Regent Road. Messrs. W. F. Brundish and Son were the undertakers.
DEATH OF MR. W. F. HULLEY. Memories of Patti and Arditi
We regret to record the death of Mr. William Frederick Hulley, which took place on Sunday at his home,
109, Wellesley Road, in his 76th year after a protracted illness. Since his return to Great Yarmouth in
1920 Mr. Hulley had been organist at St. Mary’s (R.C.) Church, Regent Road, and his death will be
deplored especially by members of that community, for he was a devout Catholic who sanctified his
great musical gifts in its service in every direction where it was of help and usefulness. In the musical
world outside he was held in equal esteem not only for his remarkable talent as a musician but also for
his gentle, loving, almost Bohemian character. It is an interesting fact that since St. Mary’s was built
about 80 years ago a Hulley has been its organist and musical director. The first of the line was the late
Mr. William Hulley, the deceased gentleman’s father, himself a musician of no mean talent. He was
succeeded by his son, the late Mr. Bernard Hulley, the pleasant memory of whose name is still fresh
with us. When he too passed away, after a slight interregnum, Mr. William Hulley came to Yarmouth
and took over the duties which his brother Bernard had been carrying on for many years. When a boy of
14 he had also occupied the stool. Now this wonderful continuity has been snapped asunder and there
is no one bearing the famous name to keep the family contact with the music of the Catholic worship.
On Sunday Father Dinley, the Rector, announced the sorrowful news to the congregation and com-
-mended the late William Hulley to their prayers. He died very peacefully, he said, after receiving the
rites of the Church. “We owe him a great deal, for he had been our very talented organist for nine or ten
years. his brother before him and his father before him, the Church having been associated with the
Hulley family for many decades, He had added by his musical talent to the beauty of the Church
services.” Father Dinley then asked the congregation to join in the De Profundis for the repose of his
soul and all stood while the organist Sister Fidelma from the St. Louis Convent played the Dead March.
Much sympathy is felt for the widow and their five children, Mr. Ernest Hulley, cellist with the Desert Song
Company on tour, Mr. Reginald Hulley, musical director at Stonyhurst College, Mr. Percival Hulley,
district cashier for the Worcester Division of the Great Western Railway, who is well-known in London
amateur operatic circles as the musical director for the Great Western Railway Operatic Society,
London, which performs at the New Scala Theatre, Mrs. W, Page (nee Cecilia Hulley) and Mrs. West
(nee Gerty Hulley).
The greater part of the late Mr. Hulley’s musical life was spent at Swansea where he was held in the
highest regard as one of the leading musicians in Wales and where he was the honoured friend of
many well-known people and artists whose names have become house-hold. He was an expert on
the violin at six years old and, at ten, played a solo before a very large audience. Born in Gt. Yarmouth
in 1853 he grew up in a musical atmosphere for his father, “Old William Hulley,” was not only organist
at St. Mary’s but also musical director for many years at the Theatre Royal, where he was destined to
be followed by his son Bernard. and later by William, the subject of this memoir. He studied the piano
and organ under the late Mr. Fred Rolfe, a pupil of Dr. Buck, of Norwich. A fellow student of his was Mr.
A. R. Gaul, of Birmingham. Having an ambition to become a military bandmaster his father placed him
with Herr August DorIa, the then bandmaster of the Prince of Wales’ Own Artillery Militia band, with
whom he studied from 1870 to 1873. He played with that excellent body of musician’s at Sandringham
during the winter festivities of the Prince and Princess of Wales, at Gunton Park, Lord Suffield’s seat, and
during the Royal visit to Lord Hastings. In 1873, he gave up the post of organist at St. Mary’s, which he
had filled since he was 14, and was appointed musical director to the Star Theatre, Swansea, and thus
began his intimate connection with the vivid musical life of South Wales. In 1876 he became organist
and choirmaster at St. David’s, Rutland Street, Swansea, and during his long connection with the choir
of St. David’s and with their cooperation, Mr. Hulley successfully produced the chief of the Gilbert and
Sullivan comic operas, beginning the series in 1880 with Trial by Jury. He was in fact the first, to give an
amateur production of the famous Savoy operas in the country with the aid of the Swansea Amateur
Operatic Society. He had the flair for them, having before their appearance written two comic operas,
which were almost prophetic of the Sullivan style of music and orchestrally rather richer. But Mr. Hulley
either did not care to or had not the means to lay his products before the great British public. In Wales
they, however, met with great favour and spread his musical fame. The first of these was The
Coastguard. which was produced by the Swansea Society in 1884 and met with great success. In 1888
followed his second opera, The Rustic. and six months later this was accorded the honour of a
performance before the Duke and Duchess of Teck and Princess May (our present Queen Mary) and a
very distinguished audience. At the close Mr. Hulley received the personal congratulations of the Duke
upon the charming music he had written. His orchestra on this occasion included Mr. W. H. Squire, the
famous cellist and composer, with whom he had a long and close friendship.
Incidentally The Rustic led to the beginning of a long and interesting association between the famous
prima donna, Madame Adelina Patti, then residing at Craig-y-nos Castle, and Mr. Hulley and his
amateurs. In the Life of Madam Patti by Herman Klein, Mr. Hulley’s name frequently occurs and it is here
that we learn too, with Arditi. At the famous Cantatrice’s request a special performance of the opera was
given at the Castle in September 1889, which so pleased the great Lady that she conceived the idea of
building a little theatre of her own at Craig-y-nos for the entertainment of her guests. The honour of
giving the first performance in this theatre fell to Mr. Hulley, who produced The Coastguard there in
August 1891. This was followed by a week of grand opera including La Traviata, Faust, Romeo and
Juliet, and Martha in which Signor Arditi conducted and Mr. Hulley led the orchestra. The great Patti
herself figured in some of the principal roles, as did also her husband Signor Nicolini. After that Mr.
Hulley enjoyed the distinction of being musical Director of the Paul Theatre till her death.
For many years Mr. Hulley was also connected with the Swansea Choral Society as leader of the
orchestra under the late Eos Morlais, on whose death was elected conductor. His orchestra was widely
known throughout South Wales and was specially complimented by Royal visitors who pronounced the
music to be as “good as that of any of the celebrated London bands both as to time and sweetness”. His
efforts to popularise instrumental music in Swansea were seen in the success of the Saturday popular
concerts he originated and at ‘which the artists afterwards became very notable performers and singers.
Among his other activities - for he was the musical head of the Welch city - was the conductorship of the
Police Band, of the County Council Rand, of the Pembroke Yeomanry Band and musical director of the
Grand Theatre, Swansea and honorary local examiner to the Royal College of Music on appointment by
the then Prince of Wales afterwards King Edward.
Amid all the work which these appointments entailed Mr. Hulley was “ever a prolific composer. In
addition to his finely scored operas he wrote numerous songs, orchestral music and Church music. Two
Masses came from his pen which “deserve to live-St. David’s and St. Cuthbert’s - both of which have
been sung in the Yarmouth Church. The former was given there on August 8th, 1926, when Mr. and
Mrs. Hulley celebrated their golden wedding and there was a, large congregation in St. Mary’s. It was
conducted by his son Percival, and his son Reginald led the orchestra and the occasion was a very
happy one for the venerable composer. On coming back to -Yarmouth Mr. Hulley was soon in request.
He took an engagement on the Britannia Pier as bandmaster of the Norfolk Military Band and
subsequently held the musical directorship at the Aquarium Theatre and Theatre Royal. He was also
ever ready to assist the Yarmouth Musical Society and the Yarmouth Amateur Operatic Society. Now his
busy life is ended and he leaves a happy memory with all who had the privilege of his friendship.
The funeral of the deceased gentleman took place on Wednesday. A Requiem Mass was sung by the
full choir at 9.30 am. at St. Mary’s (R.C.) Church, at which there was a very large congregation. Father P.
Dinley, SJ., officiated, At 11 o’clock the cortege left, for the Roman Catholic cemetery, Caister Road, the
members of the St. Mary’s Men’s Sodality acting as bearers.
The family mourners were -Mr P A. Hulley (son), Mrs. 1. L. West and Mrs. W. H. Page (daughters). Mrs. T.
Archer (sister), Miss D. Willey and Miss Kitty Page (granddaughters), Mr. Cecil Hulley and Mr. Jack Page
(grandsons), Miss Phyllis Hulley (niece), Mr. Bryan Hulley (nephew), Mrs. B. Hulley (sister-in-law), Mr.
W. H. Page (son-in-law), Mr. T. Archer (brother-in-law). Amongst the many others present were: Dr. H.

Connors, A. S. Wilson and a R. Christian, Also present at the graveside were the members of St. Mary’s
choir.
Messrs. F. Hulley and Reginald Hulley (elder sons) were unable to attend owing to being engaged in the
Desert Song Company at Blackburn Messrs. W. Page and Basil Hulley (grandsons) were also unable to
be present. The widow was absent owing to ill-health.
Included in the many beautiful floral tributes were tokens from the Swansea’ Amateur Operatic Society,
the management of the Swansea Grand Theatre, Mr. Walter Nightingale of the Aquarium Theatre,
Yarmouth, Messrs. Mills and a Blaxell., and Miss M. Hayward of the Aquarium Theatre, and from Mr. F. I
Wolsey of the Theatre Royal. Yarmouth.
Undated but probably 16th November 1929.

1930 xx Nov - South Wales Post MR. W. F. HULLEY. An Appreciation from an Old Friend. HIS HUMOUR AND HIS
ZEAL.
Mr Wm. Lewis, J.P,, sends us an appreciation of the late Mr W. F. Hulley, which will be read with interest
by the older generation who knew Swansea's most popular musical conductor.
"The splendid photograph of the late Mr W. F. Hulley," writes Mr Lewis, which appears in today's ‘Post,’
announcing his death at a ripe age, brings to my mind seven happy years, which I had the privilege of
spending with him as an amateur .cellist in concert work.
"He gave to Swansea of his best during his prime. He was one of the ablest all-round musicians I knew,
and he never failed to get the best out of his band and also the choir when he conducted the old
Swansea Choral. His humour was always ready, as on one occasion, at an Oratoria concert at New
Siloh, Landore, while chatting before ascending the stage, the clever chapel organist, the late Mr D. T.
Williams, joined us, when Mr Hulley remarked, "Hello, Mr D. T. Dear me, what unfortunate initials for a
chapel organist.’
1930 xx Nov - S
"After a rehearsal for a great concert at the Tabernacle, Morriston, Mr Hulley and six or seven of his men
came to our house for a cup of tea. We had an exceptionally fine singing canary, which desire to show
off a bit to the company, and the more they praised the greater his song, until Mr Hulley, the impresario,
laughingly said, ‘Bravo, that will do, Dicky, you are engaged, right enough.’ "

(Undated) - Extract from book on St Marys Church Great Yarmouth Norfolk by I St Lawrence SJ
For it’s first 50 years at least St Mary,s had the good fortune to have the services of the most musical of
families. The Hulleys. Mr William Hulley who married Mary Ann Cubitt of Great Yarmouth, was with his
family received into the church by Father Lopez in 1846 and for many years after had charge of the choir
or organ. He was by profession a music teacher, and several of his family gave their lives to music,
both in the church and town. William Hulley junior later succeeded his father as organist before taking
up a similar post in Swansea. Bernard Hulley was organist from 1885.: Father Alfred Hulley SJ (1855-
1922) was for most of his priestly life in charge of the choir in various Jesuit parishes, such as
Wakefield, Bristol and Clitheroe, with success enough to earn this encomium after his death: “to say he
lived for music would be to commit the unpardonable sin by forgetting his life and work for his Church,
but one can say that Father Hulley had a passion for his music and that the passion was consecrated to
his greater love, the Church”. It may be presumed that the Misses Hulley (there were 8 sisters and 8
brothers in the family) were not behind their brothers in lending their talents to the Church. Miss C
Hulley was solo pianist at the Aquarium and Bernard was a solo flautist towards the end of the 80s”.

1877 08 Sep - Yarmouth Independent - Presentation to Mr. Ambrose Hulley. We are pleased to hear that during the
present week Mr. A. Hulley, whose admirable playing of the flute and piccolo in the Aquarium band has
often been spoken of, has received a kind recognition of his services from a few public friends who in
visiting the Aquarium have appreciated his performances. The present consisted of one of the best
silver-mounted piccolos, in a Morocco case, with silver plate, which will be a lasting remembrance of the
kindness he has thus experienced. The power of manipulation and the quickness of execution of some
of the most difficult passages of music proves Mr. Hulley to be a very excellent musician, and we hope
that this small testimonial will be the means of encouraging our local artist for the future, and add a good
musician to the list of the musical and literary names attached to our town.

1891 19 Dec - Yarmouth Independent - MR. BERNARD HULLEY’S CONCERT. Far from being the least amongst the
high class concerts of the season will have be classed that given Bernard W. Hulley on Tuesday
evening at the St Mary's Schoolroom; not only because of the capabilities of the ladies and gentlemen
who took part in it but also because of the excellent character of the music rendered. This is the third
occasion on which Mr Hulley, who is so well known as an instrumentalist and also as organist of St.
Mary's Roman Catholic Church, has afforded the Yarmouth public a musical treat. Unfortunately his
endeavours seemed not to be so much appreciated as they deserved, judging from the somewhat
scanty audience and one would be almost again led to ask if it was not for the success of the recent
concerts at the Town Hall if there is any great interest taken in music here. It is certainly a matter for
wonder that a concert given by so excellent a musician as Mr. Hulley was not better attended, But
perhaps the unpropititous weather was a great factor in this. Mr. Hulley fully sustained his reputation as
such, and the applause which greeted the items to which his name was attached was fitting recognition
of his talent.

1917 26 May - Yarmouth Independent - THE LATE MR BERNARD HULLEY
With deep regret we record the death of Mr. Bernard Hulley, as the result of cerebral trouble, from which
he had suffered for three weeks. As one of the several sons of the late Mr. William Hulley, who died at
an advanced age a short time since, Mr. Bernard Hulley was a member of a musical family of great
abilities. He was for some time a member of the famous band of the Prince of Wales' Own Norfolk
Artillery, so long associated with Yarmouth; he most capably filled for some years the position of
organist and choir-master of St. Mary's (R.C.) Church,Regent Road; and for over thirty years had been
conductor of the Royal Aquarium orchestra. Mr. Hulley had assisted at many concerts in the town and
district; and had a very extensive practice as teacher of organ and violin, his work being held in very
high esteem. It is recalled that almost his last musical engagement was at St. Mary's Church, on the
occasion of the Requiem Mass for the late Mr. Thos. Archer, when he presided at the organ. He leaves
a wife, a son (a young 'cello player who inherits his father's and mother's musical talent), and three
daughters. It is interesting to note that Mr. Hulley would have been 50 years of age on Tuesday last. A
host of friends regret the demise of one who had, to a remarkable degree, the charm of making
friendships that were lasting.
The funeral took place on Wednesday morning, in the presence of a very numerous gathering. Prior to
the interment in the Catholic Cemetery, Caister Road, a Requiem Mass was sung at St. Mary's, where
Father Hamilton Thompson conducted, and Mr. H. Tyrrell was Master of Ceremonies. Mr. W. F. Hulley
(Swansea), brother of Mr. Bernard Hulley, presided at the organ, playing "O Rest in the Lord" as an
opening voluntary. The coffin was brought into the Sanctuary from the flower-bestrewn hearse, and an
open carriage followed containing many other floral tributes. Mr. G. Pike, of the chair, rendered the only
solo, " Pia Jesu." When the coffin was carried out at the conclusion of the Mass, the "Dead March" in
Saul was played. ;
The followers were:—Widow, Bryan Hulley (son), Mrs. Purrier and the Misses Victoria and Gladys Hulley
(daughters), Mr. William Hullev (Swansea) (brother), Mrs. T. Everett, Miss M. Hulley (sisters), Mr. T. Elliott
(brother-in-law), W.Rice (brother-in-law), Mr. P. Archer. Mr. G.Pike. Mr. A. Wilson, Mr.S.Dye, Councillor W.
H. Nightingale, Mr. Maxell. Mr. A. A. Cash, Mr. H. Mills, Mr. G. Howe, Mr. H. Raw, and Mr. Sheen.
The flowers were from (incl.) Mr. and Mrs. Ernest Hulley (London).

1917 12 Jun - Wills index entry: Hulley Bernard Walter of 62 Albion-road Great Yarmouth died 19 May 1917
Administration Norwich 12 June to Maud Millicent Hulley widow Effects £106 8s.

For it’s first 50 years at least St Mary,s had the good fortune to have the services of the most musical of
families. The Hulleys. Mr William Hulley who married Mary Ann Cubitt of Great Yarmouth, was with his
family received into the church by Father Lopez in 1846 and for many years after had charge of the choir
or organ. He was by profession a music teacher, and several of his family gave their lives to music, both
in the church and town. William Hulley junior later succeeded his father as organist before taking up a
similar post in Swansea. Bernard Hulley was organist from 1885.: Father Alfred Hulley SJ (1855-1922)
was for most of his priestly life in charge of the choir in various Jesuit parishes, such as Wakefield, Bristol
and Clitheroe, with success enough to earn this encomium after his death: “to say he lived for music
would be to commit the unpardonable sin by forgetting his life and work for his Church, but one can say
that Father Hulley had a passion for his music and that the passion was consecrated to his greater love,
the Church”. It may be presumed that the Misses Hulley (there were 8 sisters and 8 brothers in the
family) were not behind their brothers in lending their talents to the Church. Miss C Hulley was solo
pianist at the Aquarium and Bernard was a solo flautist towards the end of the 80s”.

Another sentence talks of Bernard getting a diamond ring at the same time that an organ is presented to
the church by a Mrs Bowen.

Mrs. Maud Hulley, of 62, Albion Road. The parents of the bride being so well known in musical circles of
the town, a large congregation assembled the Church to witness the ceremony. The bridegroom,

shortly after by the bride. The organist on this occasion was Bombardier J. H. Smart, A.R.C.O., who on
their arrival played the bridal march from Lohengrin. The bride, leaning on the arm of her father, looked
exceedingly pretty as she walked to the High Altar rails, in her dress of Crepe de Chine with Honiton

She was attended by two bridesmaids, the Misses Vic and Gladys Hulley (sisters of the bride) who were

1906 27 Jan - Yarmouth Independent - Wedding.— At St. Mary’s Church, Regent Road, on Tuesday, Mr. Thomas
Archer, eldest son of Mr. Thomas Archer, one our leading herring merchants, was married to Miss
Monica Hulley, youngest daughter of Mr. William Hulley, Manby Road. The Rev. Father Hulley, brother of
the bride, officiated and full nuptial Mass was celebrated, a strong choir assisting. Mr. Fred Archer was
best man. and the bride was given away by her brother, Mr. Bernard Hulley, organist of the Church, and
the musical director of the Royal Aquarium. There were six bridesmaids, four of whom were sisters of
the bridegroom, and the other two were nieces of the bride. The wedding was attended by a large
gathering, who were afterwards entertained at the residence of the bridegroom’s father. Harbour View,
South Quay. Later the happy couple left Southtown en route for Holland, where they will spend their
honeymoon.


Thomas Albert Archer

1906 Mar qtr - married at Yarmouth RD: Archer Thomas Albert Yarmouth 4b 33 (FreeBMD).

2005 Aug - Note from Jo Archer

Not sure if you were aware of the Hulley and Archer link. Monica married Thomas Archer
from another large RC family in Great Yarmouth. His father was from Colchester Essex
and set up a fish merchant business at the height of the Herring trade in 1880s and
families were pretty well off at the turn of the century. My grandfather Thomas died in the
1960s. My father ( George Archer) one of several of Monica's children died in 1988. Only
his sister Joan survives as the remaining child of Monica. She now lives in Morecombe.
She looks very like the photos I have seem of Monica Hulley.

There is a catholic cemetery in Great Yarmouth which is pretty full with Hulleys and Archers in the plots!

2005 5 Sep - note from Jo Archer

The RC grave yard in Caistor Rd Great Yarmouth is not a normal graveyard. It was built
well out of town and there was once a small chapel which was demolished in the early
1980s. It is now difficult to distinguish from the allotments next door! I only found out
about it when I got a second hand book in the history of the Catholic church in Great
Yarmouth. This book has a short para on the Hulleys too. The cemetery was a briar
patch when I went a few years ago, but the stones were quite clear when the weeds
were moved away! I found Monica's father in law straight away (my great grand father).

Monica herself is buried in the main Norwich corporation cemetery as she died in my
parents house in Norwich in 1947 when she was staying with them. There is a large
RC area, but I do not have plot number. Both my parents are now buried with her in
the same plot, so my family will not forget the location , at least. I am too young to have
known her. She was a devout Roman Catholic. My brother has a photo of her which I
can borrow to scan and send to you.

Monica and Thomas were quite wealthy living on the herring trade till the early 1920s
and my father had very comfortable early years (he was born in 1914) . However my
grandfather lost the family wealth when the herring industry declined and the family
moved to poorer houses over the years. In the 1930s they all lived in a cellar and two
of my fathers siblings died of TB. Monica's husband Thomas ( my grandfather) died
much later in the late 1960s and I remember him fairly well. He died in Ireland, still
working to his late 80s (again ) as a herring merchant acting as middleman to sell
their catch to French markets. Irish fishermen carried his coffin to the church. I
remember him for the long letters he showed my father that he wrote to the ministry of
Ag and Fishery in the 1960s warning them that over fishing was depleting the North
sea stocks. They of course ignored him and he was right.

1879 24 Oct -- Nottinghamshire Guardian - CONCERT AT LOUGHBOROUGH - (incl.) This solo and that for the violin
were undoubtedly the gems of the concert. The solo last referred to as De Beriot’s “Seventh air, with
variations.” and with the nature of its treatment and manner of interpretation no fault whatever could be
found. Miss Jeannette Hulley was the executant, and that her acquirements as a violinist are of a very
high order there could be no two opinions among those who witnessed the brilliant manner in which
the mechanical difficulties of the solo were dealt with, and the spirit and refinement by which the
performance was throughout marked. The encore which was warmly given to the solo was fully merited.
Besides making this appearance before the audience Miss Hulley accompanied the oboe and
violoncello selections.

1891 18 Apr - Yarmouth Independent - J. C. BARTRAM v. KENT. To the Editor of the "Yarmouth Independent." Dear
Sir,-ln the report of this case in the Court of Record, nothing is mentioned of the facts, and as I have
heard it is inferred that I bought some goods of Mr Bartram and did not pay for them, may I ask you to
spare me a short space to state the real facts of the case. A man named Frederick Hulley had some
goods of Mr Bartram, and not keeping up his payments, they were seized, when, to prevent his losing
his home, I signed an undertaking to pay for them. Unforeseen circumstances have unfortunately arisen
preventing me from fulfilling my promise, hence the above action. Thanking you in anticipation for
inserting this, I remain, yours obediently, ALFRED KENT. Market place, Gt. Yarmouth, 16th April, 1891.

1887) had emigrated earlier. Annie brought her daughter Violet Hulley (b. 1885) and
Frederick George's wife Ethyl, and their two sons, Leslie and Ronald. Frederick George and his brother Archibald emmigrated to the US a few years earlier
than 1916 to Detroit, Michigan to play in the Detroit Symphony Orchestra. They were
entertainers, and changed their surname to Dayne for show-business reasons. I have
the list of about one hundred Hulley descendants of the name of Dayne. I recently
discovered that my father, Ronald Hulley (91) lives about 20 miles from his cousin
Richard Hulley (91) son of Archibald, of whom he had lost track about 40 years ago.
