William Hewins


William Hewins, the son of Samuel Hewins, an iron-merchant, was born on 11th May 1865. He was educated at Wolverhampton Grammar School and Pembroke College, Oxford. After graduating with a degree in mathematics, Hewins worked as a university extension lecturer.

Sidney Webb and Beatrice Webb met Hewins when they were at the Bodleian Library researching their book on the history of trade unions. When the Webbs founded the London School of Economics (LSE) in 1895 Hewins accepted their offer to became the institution's first director.

Beatrice wrote after his appointment: "Hewins, who expected great things, has been depressed and irritable and it has taken all Sidney's good temper and tact to keep things going smooth. Hewins is a sanguine enthusiast, pulls hard and strong when he feels the stream with him, but I doubt whether he has the staying power for bad times. And he has a small-minded little wife always whispering discontent into his ear, suggesting that he is being put upon and that the enterprise will not succeed."

Hewins held the post until 1903 when he resigned to work for Joseph Chamberlain and his tariff reform campaign. Beatrice Webb recorded in her diary: "Hewins sends in his resignation of the Directorship of the School of Economics. So ends our close relationship with this remarkable man, remarkable for audacity, enterprise, zeal and skill in presenting facts and manipulating persons, most remarkable for confidence in his own powers, more than confidence - an overestimation of them. These qualities have served us well in building up, from nothing, the reputation of the LSE, in steering its fortunes through the indifference and hostility of the London academic and business world, in obtaining and keeping the co-operation of men of diverse views and conflicting interests."

Hewins unsuccessfully contested Shipley (1910) and Middleton (1911) but was elected as the MP for Hereford in May 1912. He supported David Lloyd George during the First World War and when he replaced Herbert Asquith he appointed Hewins as Under-Secretary of State for the Colonies in 1917.

According to his biographer, A. C. Howe: "In tandem with his friend Walter Long, a like-minded imperial enthusiast, he undertook much work on trade relations with the empire, and helped organize the 1918 Imperial Conference and develop post-war emigration policy.... Hewins's period in office was, however, brought to an abrupt end, for in 1918 he was not invited to contest Hereford (he believed on religious grounds, others believed because he had neglected to nurse the seat), and he became the only Unionist minister not reappointed by the Lloyd George coalition."

Hewins retired from the House of Commons at the end of the First World War. As well as providing articles for the Encyclopaedia Britannica, Hewins had several books published including Trade in Balance (1924), Empire Restored (1927) and the Apologia of an Imperialist (1929).

William Hewins died on 17th November, 1931.

Hewins, who expected great things, has been depressed and irritable and it has taken all Sidney's good temper and tact to keep things going smooth. And he has a small-minded little wife always whispering discontent into his ear, suggesting that he is being put upon and that the enterprise will not succeed.

Every Tuesday he lunches with us to discuss the affairs of the LSE. He is original minded and full of energy and faith. Shaw always declares he is a fanatic. So he is. But he is also a born manipulator. He is a churchman and an ardent believer in the scientific method in economics and politics.

There are now five hundred students. Hewins of course is a little bit over-confident and elated, but that is his temperament. He and Sidney, and to a lesser extent, I myself, make a good working trio. The whole internal organization of the LSE is left to him with suggestions from Sidney. The whole financial side is in Sidney's hands, whilst my domain has been roping in influential supporters from among old friends and connections. Every Tuesday Hewins lunches here and we discuss the affairs of the LSE in all its aspects. He consults Sidney about the curriculum, Sidney tells him the requirements for securing LCC Technical Education Board and University support.

Hewins wanted to jump Sidney into increasing his salary from £600 (it was raised from £400 only six months ago) to £800. Sidney agreed to an extra £100 to cover unusual expenses, but refused to make even this permanent. So long as nearly the whole income comes from the LCC (either through the University, £2,400, or through the TEB £1,200) he feels that it would risk all to double the salary of the Director, a personal friend, in twelve months. It is, of course, a delicate position. The LSE has had an extraordinary amount of support from the LCC owing to Sidney's influence. But most councillors regard it as his 'fad' and have acquiesced not on the ground of their own faith in the institution but on account of their confidence in him. Hewins, who has a swelled head over the increase of students and visions of the whole City coming to be educated under his direction, was quite improperly insistent and had to be gently but firmly reminded of the actual dependence of the LSE on Sidney's influence in the LCC.

Hewins sends in his resignation of the Directorship of the School of Economics. These qualities have served us well in building up, from nothing, the reputation of the LSE, in steering its fortunes through the indifference and hostility of the London academic and business world, in obtaining and keeping the co-operation of men of diverse views and conflicting interests.


Hewins History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms

The root of the ancient Dalriadan-Scottish name Hewins is the Gaelic personal name Eógann, which comes from the Latin name, Eugenius, which means well born. Hewins is a patronymic surname, which belongs to the category of hereditary surnames. Many patronyms were formed when a son used his father's personal name as a surname, while others came from the personal names of famous religious and secular figures. The Hewins family was established in Scotland, well before the Norman Conquest of England, in 1066.

Euing appears in the Domesday Book of 1086 and may have been derived from Eawa's son. A Eawa was brother of Penda, king of Mercia. [1] However, another source claims the name was a "descendant of Ewen (warrior)." [2]

And yet another source claims the name "goes back to the Greek eugenes (wellborn.)" [3]

Early Origins of the Hewins family

The surname Hewins was first found in Argyllshire (Gaelic erra Ghaidheal), the region of western Scotland corresponding roughly with the ancient Kingdom of Dál Riata, in the Strathclyde region of Scotland, now part of the Council Area of Argyll and Bute, where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The earliest recorded bearer of the name was Dovenaldus Ewain, documented in 1164.

Migration of the Hewins family

Descendents of Dalriadan-Scottish families still populate many communities across North America. They are particularly common in Canada, since many went north as United Empire Loyalists at the time of the American War of Independence. Much later, in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, the highland games and Clan societies that now dot North America sprang up, allowing many Scots to recover their lost national heritage. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Hewins, or a variant listed above: Alexander, Henry, James, John, Mathew, Thomas, William Ewing all arrived in Philadelphia between 1840 and 1865 John, Robert, and Elizabeth Ewins settled in Virginia in 1623.

The Hewins Motto +

The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Audaciter

LSE’s first Director – William Hewins

29-year-old William Hewins became LSE’s first Director in 1895 and remained in post until becoming Secretary to Joseph Chamberlain’s Tariff Commission in 1903. LSE Archivist Sue Donnelly describes how Hewins came to accept the Directorship at LSE and the enormous part he played in setting up the early School.

On 24 March 1895 Sidney Webb wrote to a young Oxford academic:

It is now a matter of serious import whether the scheme can be carried through. I am still keen on it, and if it should be possible for you to help to a greater extent than we contemplated it might still be done.

On 30 March after meeting the Webbs the academic, William Hewins, replied:

You will be glad to know that I accept [the Trustees’] invitation to undertake the Directorship of the proposed new School and that I will at once set about the work of organisation.

At the youthful age of 29 William Hewins (1865-1931) became LSE’s first Director. He was not Sidney’s first choice – that was the political scientist Graham Wallas – but when he declined, Sidney approached Hewins who had agreed to lecture on economic history. Able and energetic Hewins turned out to be the perfect partner in bringing Sidney’s vision of a “school of economics” to fruition. By the time LSE opened its doors on 10 October Hewins had found accommodation, designed the syllabus, gathered support, published a prospectus and recruited 200 students.

Hewins attended Wolverhampton Grammar School and gained a second class degree in mathematics from Pembroke College, Oxford. More significantly he was involved in founding the Oxford Social Science Club, joined the Oxford Economics Society and developed an interest in historical research. After graduation he lectured in the north of England as part of the university extension movement and in 1892 published on English trade and finance in the seventeenth century. By 1895 his failure either to persuade Oxford to include economic history in its curriculum or to be appointed to a chair at King’s College, London, may have increased his enthusiasm for a new kind of academic project.

Graham Wallas, c1920s. Credit: LSE Library

Accommodation for the School was found in three rooms at 9 John Street in Adelphi, near Charing Cross Station. Hewins recalled that students found “an almost unfurnished room where there was one bureau and two chairs, on for myself and one for my visitor.” Hewins approached the Society of Arts and the Chamber of Commerce for lecture space. Both were worried that the School’s Fabian connections might influence teaching. Hewins, with no Fabian connections, was persuasive and the School’s lectures where held either at the Society of Arts in John Street, or at the Chamber of Commerce, Botolph House, Eastcheap.

A second task was ensuring the School’s academic credibility. Hewins continued Sidney Webb’s approaches to established scholars such as Halford Mackinder, already Reader in Geography in the University of Oxford, and William Cunningham, Professor of Economic Science and Statistics at King’s College, London or rising stars such as Arthur Bowley in statistics. The first prospectus outlines nine areas of study including economics, commercial geography and political science.

Halford Mackinder, c1910, LSE Library

Everything was ready for the students. Hewins wrote to economists and social scientists in Britain and Europe explaining the new project. He also did newspaper interviews about the new endeavour and the prospectus was circulated. 200 full and part time students registered by October 1895 and on 9 November Hewins wrote:

The hope that the School would appeal to various classes of students has been fulfilled. Amongst those who have joined the School are men and women engaged in business, in municipal and public work, graduates of universities (English and foreign), civil servants, teachers (both in secondary and elementary schools), clerks, journalists and working men.

Hewins stressed that “…no differentiation against persons was to be allowed on the grounds of sex, religion, or economic or political views.”

Beatrice and Sidney Webb, 1895, LSE Library

While there was no doubting Hewins work rate or commitment to the LSE project not everyone found him easy to work with – Beatrice Webb described him as “one big paradox” – while he had great energy and organisational capacity when inspired she described him as “dilatory” when his own and the Governors’ views failed to coincide. The School Secretary, Christian MacTaggart, was clear that “he worked far too hard and had too much to do”. After finding the School its second home on Adelphi Terrace in 1896 Hewins suffered a collapse and Sidney Webb had to take over the work of organising builders and the move into the new premises. But at the end of three years 1,000 students from sixteen countries had registered as students and within five years the London School of Economics and Political Science was ready to join the University of London.

Hewins’ directorship ended abruptly in November 1903 when he accepted the post of Secretary to Joseph Chamberlain’s Tariff Commission and resigned believing that his political views would conflict with the School’s academic freedom. In 1912 Hewins was elected as the Unionist MP for Hereford but after World War One he was less active in politics. In 1929 he looked back on his time as Director:

When I think of the first days of the School of Economics at No. 9 John Street, Adelphi, and contemplate the great organisation which has grown from those beginnings, I can only feel that I was privileged along with my colleagues to take part in a great romance. Difficulties appeared from day to day only to be overcome. Although we represented different schools of thought and were on different sides of politics, I cannot remember any incident which disturbed the harmony of our relations during those early years or which interfered in any way with the rapid progress of our great undertaking.


Sir Alexander Carr-Saunders

(1886-1966), Director 1937-1957

Carr-Saunders was a biologist and demographer who came to LSE from the Charles Booth Chair of Social Science at Liverpool University. He steered LSE through its World War II evacuation to Cambridge and persuaded Charlotte Shaw to support his scheme of a general reading library – today’s Shaw Library.

The archive consists of the papers of William Albert Samuel Hewins (1865-1931), economist, historian and Conservative politician, together with those of his son Maurice Gravenor Hewins (though the latter remain unlisted). The documents include official government papers, notes, lecture notes and diaries, together with an extensive and important correspondence involving leading politicians and dignitaries of the day. (For details of Hewins' collection of original nineteenth-century broadside ballads included in the Papers see separate entry under 'Hewins Ballads').

W.A.S. Hewins was born in 1865, and educated at Wolverhampton G.S. and Pembroke College, Oxford. He undertook postgraduate research in History under Sir Charles Harding Firth, and on leaving Oxford took part in university extension work. In 1895 he was invited to organise the London School of Economics, of which he was Director until 1903. He was also Tooke Professor of Economic Science and Statistics at King's College, London from 1897 to 1903 and held the chair of Modern Economic History at that University from 1902 to 1903.

In 1903 he was invited by Joseph Chamberlain to become Secretary of the Tariff Reform Commission, intended to promote Chamberlain's policy of safeguarding British industry and encouraging Imperial economic unity, a post which he held until 1917, serving as Chairman frrom 1920 to 1922.

During his political career he fought three unsuccessful by-elections before being returned as Conservative member for Hereford City in March 1912, representing the constituency until 1918. From 1915 he held various offices in the Unionist Business Committee and in the Empire Development Union.

In 1914 he became a Roman Catholic and acted as an adviser to Cardinal Bourne on political matters.

Hewins contributed numerous articles to periodicals and wrote several books, of which The Apologia of an Imperialist (1929) is largely autobiographical.

William Bradford was baptized at St. Helena's Church, Austerfield, Yorkshire, England on March 19, 1589/90 (O.S.), the son of William Bradford and his wife Alice Hanson. [1] [2] [3] [4]

Among the 30 Separatists who, with Henry Ainsworth, seceded from Francis Johnson's Ancient Brethren was Henry May from Wisbech, England. May had a 13-year-old daughter (or perhaps a sister - the records are not clear) named Dorothy. Three years after Ainsworth’s congregation had split with Johnson and the Ancient Brethren, William Bradford - originally a worshipper at Clyfton's church in Babworth, then a member of the Scrooby congregation and a voyager to Amsterdam, and among those who moved to Leiden with John Robinson - briefly returned to Amsterdam to marry Dorothy May. [5]

On 7 December 1620, Dorothy drowned in Provincetown Harbor after accidentally falling off the Mayflower. [8] [9] [10]

William's second wife was Alice Carpenter Southworth, a widow. They were married at Plymouth Colony on August 14, 1623. Two sons, William Bradford and Joseph Bradford, and one daughter Mercy Bradford, were born to the second marriage. [1] [11] Alice had married first Edward Southworth, a say-weaver of Leyden, on 28 May 1613 in Leyden. Edward was born in 1590, the son of Thomas Southworth and Jane Mynne of Wells in Somersetshire. Edward and Alice had two sons, Constant and Thomas Southworth. The Southworths and William lived in Heneage House on Dukes Place in London for about a year before the Mayflower sailed, so were probably well acquainted. Edward died by 1621, probably in Leyden, after the Mayflower sailed. Two years later Alice left to join William in the new world.

The Early Settlers of Stokes County, North Carolina

Formed in 1789, Stokes County was created from Surry County, NC. It was named after Revolutionary War patriot, Captain John Stokes. The county is located in the northern section of the Piedmont area and borders the state line of Virginia. Majority of pioneers who traveled down The Great Wagon Road would have passed through the Stokes County area to reach their new lands. If you wish to read more about our Great Wagon Road series, follow the links here and here. The lands of Stokes County were very fertile with both the Yadkin and the Dan River flow freely through the area. This will be the first segment of many more to follow later this spring. Let the exploration begin as we trace the footsteps of these early pioneers.

We begin with the Banner family who migrated from England to Pennsylvania in 1740. Henry Banner with wife, Eleanor Martin, traveled from Pennsylvania to Carolina in 1751. This trip took place when the Great Wagon Road was nothing more than a trail through the back country. Henry Banner settled along the banks of Town Fork Creek near present day Germanton. Son, Joseph Banner, born December 28, 1749 in Pennsylvania, served in the Surry County militia. Joseph volunteered at Old Richmond on July 13, 1776 and he served twelve months as a Minute Man. Joseph married May 17, 1771 to Sarah McAnally. The McAnally family moved from Lancaster County, Pennsylvania to Amherst County, Virginia and then to Stokes County, North Carolina. Sarah’s parents are Charles McAnally and Ruhamah Houston. They were married in Virginia and migrated to Carolina after the birth of Sarah on August 8, 1755. Charles and Ruhamah McAnally are both buried in the family cemetery located near the Snow Creek area and the Dan River.

Dan River, Stokes County, NC

Joseph and Sarah Banner had 7 children, Charles(1773) married Rebecca Evans, Charity(1776) married Jesse Griggs, Ruhama(1778) married Wyatt Peoples, Elisha(1782-1810), Mary(1785) married Joseph Griggs, Sarah(1788) married 1st cousin Charles McAnally and Joseph(1792) married Anna Armstrong. Joseph and Sarah Banner both died in Stokes County and are buried near their home. Joseph died April 24, 1838 and Sarah on July 4, 1844.

The Scott family in Stokes County begins with Daniel. Daniel Scott was from Powhatan County, Virginia where he was born in 1759. He married Ann Radford Poindexter and traveled from Virginia to Stokes County sometime prior to 1790. Their son Robert Scott, was born along the banks of the Yadkin River on August 17, 1790. Robert married Mary Martin April 9, 1818. Mary’s parents are Valentine Martin and Elizabeth Dalton. Valentine Martin was the son of Job Martin.

John Kiser and wife Phoebe arrived in Carolina soon after 1781. According to the 1786 census taken by Charles McAnally, they were living in Blackburn’s district along the banks of Town Fork Creek near present day Germanton. The children of this union are Philip(1780 in Pennsylvania) married Polly Morris, John(1782 in Pennsylvania) married Margaretha Fesler, Harmon(1784 in Pennsylvania) married Sally Kiger, Michael(1790 in Stokes County) married Judith Boles and Frederick(1791 in Stokes County) married Nancy Childress.

The Beasley family arrived in Stokes County from Virginia in 1787. Benjamin Beasley was born February 1760 in Caroline County, Virginia to Richard and Martha Beasley. He was a veteran of the American Revolution. Benjamin married Rachel Prather September 30, 1791 at the home of John Martin, a magistrate of Stokes County. Benjamin settled around the Francisco area and had 5 children. John(1792), Susanna(1794), Enoch(1796), Nancy(1798) and Ammon(1800). Benjamin died in 1841 in Patrick County, Virginia. Benjamin’s brother, Robert Beasley was born in 1762 and married Keziah of Cherokee Native origins. The family lived near Turkey Cock Creek and raised at least 4 sons, Richard, Jonathan, Elisha and Henry. It appears that Jonathan and Elisha later migrated to Indiana.

William Boles was born about 1730, he migrated from Virginia to Carolina by 1766. William had at least 4 sons and 1 daughter. James Boles, son of William, was born circa 1754. He migrated down the Great Wagon Road with his parents and siblings. James married in 1775 to Molly, maiden name unknown, and lived near Town Fork Creek area. He owned 300 acres of land and had six children. Alexander(1776) married Bethenia Walker, Abel(1779) married Milly Reddick, William(1785) married Margaret Boles, Nancy never married, had one son, Rebecca married Hugh Boyles and Edward(1800) married Rebecca Boyles. James died January 1828 still owning the original 300 acres of land.

Joseph Bolerjack was living in Pennsylvania during the year of 1741. Joseph assisted David Tannenberg, builder of organs, in Lititz, Pennsylvania. He married Maria Haller on August 31, 1741 in Muddy Creek, Pennsylvania. Children born in Pennsylvania were Joseph, Johannes, Anna Maria and Maria Elizabeth. Joseph left Lititz on June 4, 1771 and arrived in Bethania, North Carolina on June 28, 1771. The diaries of the Moravians state that lodging was given to the family as they stayed in the tanner house for a short while. Joseph Bolerjack built cabinets, organs and many other items. Some of these items are on display at Old Salem, Winston-Salem, Forsyth County, NC. The family later settled near Germanton and maintained a huge farm consisting of 2, 000 acres.

Pinnacle, Stokes County, NC

The pioneers who lived in this area learned quickly how to survive on the frontier. Few settlements were in existence during the 18th century and the settlers were challenged with harsh winters, floods, sickness and droughts. Today, Stokes County has over 50,000 residents living in the area. During the 18th century, the majority of the inhabitants were Scotch-Irish, Germans and Cheraw Indians. Join us for the 2nd segment of this series coming later this spring.
