Charles Joachim Baron Hambro1

#16882, b. 1807, d. 17 November 1877
Last Edited=14 Feb 2011
     Charles Joachim Baron Hambro was born in 1807 in Copenhagen, Denmark, into a Jewish-Danish merchant family. His father was Joseph Hambro (1780-1848) and his mother Marianne von Halle (1786-1838), she was very prone to depression and although an only child Carl was sent to live with Professor Johannes Reinhardt, founder of the Danish Zoological Museum and his wife Nicoline and their four children.1 He was baptised on 3 October 1822 in Trinitatis Church, Rundetarn, Copenhagen, Denmark, and confirmed into the Christian religion after being influenced by his foster parents.1 In 1832 he moved to England and set up a merchant house in London.1 He married Caroline Gostenhofer on 12 December 1833 in London, England, Caroline was a merchant's daughter. The couple returned to Denmark in 1834. They had four children.1 Following some rather good investment deals connected with the war loan to Denmark in 1851, King Frederik VII of Denmark bestowed a barony on Carl, even though the 1849 Danish constitution had in principle abolished such honours. Apparently this restored what had been failing Carl's confidence in himself as a merchant banker.

He bought an estate in England called Milton Hall in Dorset in 1852 which he restored and rebuilt the Abbey. He also bought Gifford House on the edge of Putney Heath.1 His wife Caroline died on 8 March 1852.1 He married Eliza Frances Greathed, daughter of Thomas Jacob Turner, on 4 April 1861 in King's Worthy, Winchester, Hampshire, England, Eliza was a nurse and the widow of a British official in India, she had nursed Charles in hospital in 1860. Charles and Eliza married by special licence by the very Rev Dean of Westminster was assisted by Rev Thomas Bacon Rector of the Parish. Their wedding was reported in the Morning Chronicle of 9 April 1861 and Hampshire Telegraph and Sussex Chronicle of Saturday 13 April 1861.1,2,3 Carl was a major public benefactor in his native country and gave £6,000 to the city of Copenhagen for the building of the first hot-water baths, now known as the Hambro Public Baths which opened in Borgerade in 1864. He funded other public baths and wrote a history of Denmark, publishing an illustrated version shortly before he died. In his later years is sight failed.1 Charles died on 17 November 1877 in Milton Abbey, Milton Abbas, Dorset, England.1 Charles was buried in Milton Abbey Churchyard, Milton Abbas, Dorset, England, although the Kensal Green website do lay claim that he is buried there.1,4 His wealth at death was described as under £500,000 and probate was issued on 6 December 1877.1
