Chart 23 - James Greethead
James Frederick Greethead otherwise Leotard Bosco
     James Frederick Greethead was born about 1851 in St James, Bristol, Somerset, England.2 He was the son of Mary Greethead. In the census of 7 April 1861 in Bristol City Union Workhouse, Stapleton, Bristol, Somerset, England, he was listed as the inmate. There were three Greatheads listed Mary aged 29, James aged 10 and Louisa aged 6. All are listed as paupers, Mary is a tailoress and James and Louisa scholars.3 In May 1862, according to a report in the Bristol Mercury, Mary Greethead was committed for 14 days hard labour for abandoning her two illegitimate children, James and Louisa, who had thereby become charges on St Peter's Hospital.4 James started life in 1862 as a programme boy in Cook's Circus. He subsequently joined Rubini, the well known conjurerand afterwards entered Mark Wheeler's company as a conjurer.5 He married Mary Relph, daughter of Edward Relph and Margaret Wilkinson, on 26 June 1869 in Register Office, Bristol, Somerset, England, after a certificate was issued. Both James and Mary were aged nineteen. James was a singer and gave his address as 9 Water Street, Rosemary Street, Bristol. Mary stated she lived at 33 Prince Street, Bristol. The ceremony was witnessed by Emma Reeves and Albert E Bewden.6 James was listed as head of household in the census of 2 April 1871 in 65 Bath Road, Birmingham, Warwickshire, England, James was a singer and ventriloquist and Mary a singer.7 James was professionally known as Leotard Bosco.8 Leotard and Mary Bosco appeared on a poster for Middlesex Music Hall, Drury Lane of 20 October 1875. They were described as in the beautiful enchanted Palace of illusion.9 On a poster from the Greenwich Society for the Royal Hill Greenwich of 2 April 1878. He was described as the Royal Illusionist Signor Bosco, the Monach of Legerdemain who had the honour of appearing before her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family at Balmoral Castle.9 A fire broke out in the premises of Mr Frederick Tilly, soap merchant, Gunwarf Road. Although the alarm was promptly raised the fire obtained too firm a hold upon the place and the greasy nature of the materials used in the manufactury, increased the difficulties of the fire brigade. Fire engines from the 55th Regiment, 109th Regiment, Royal Engineers and Army Service Corps attended the fire, The Soap Factory roof fell in and not long after the roof of the Music Hall also fell in. The entire body of the Music Hall was completely destroyed and the adjoining houses were damaged. Leotard lost one of his Fairy Fountains in the fire.10 In the census of 3 April 1881 in 15 Arundel Street, Sheffield, Yorkshire, England, he was listed as a lodger Leotard and Mary were lodging in a house owned by Edward Packard. They were listed as performing magicians. Also lodging in the house were another husband and wife, George and Louisa Minishull a comedian and costumier. A further comedian lodging there was Charles Burleigh, his wife was not with him.11 Leotard was listed as the head of the family on the census of 5 April 1891 in Hull Road, Cottingham, Yorkshire, England, Leotard was a Music Hall Proprietor. His sister in law Emma and three of her children were visiting him and his wife.12 He was the proprietor of the Empire Music Hall, Grimston Street. This was originally known as the Mechanics Hall but Leotard attributed his own name to it when he was either the owner or lessee for about five years from 1889-1894. He appears to have been in partnership with a Mr H T Downes who later moved to Belfast to manage theatres there. The theatre is referred to as Bosco and Downes Empire in Geoff Mellors Northern Music Halls. Leotard's home address was given as 257 Beverley Road, Hull in 1892. Leotard and Mary also lived in 257 Grove Street, Hull in 1892.8,13,14 I suspect Arthur may have been managing the Empire Music Hall owned by his Great Uncle James Frederick Greethead otherwise known as Leotard Bosco.15 He died on 24 July 1895 in Lavenham House, Birchfield Road, Perry Barr, Staffordshire, England, from diabetes. He was declared a Theatrical proprietor of Legerdemain which I believe to mean a skill to deceive or conjure tricks with the hands, trickery having started life selling programmes at a travelling circus.16,17,18,19 James was buried in Handsworth Old Church Cemetery, Handsworth, Warwickshire, England, He was followed to his last resting place by a large number of the music hall profession and proprietors, including Mr H Downs his former partner.20,19 The will of James was proved on 8 October 1895 in London to his widow Mary. His effects were valued as £1,566.17
