Brief History

 

So many of John Udallís children and grandchildren tumbled from plenty to poverty that the life of Gauis comes as a refreshing surprise.  By all appearances Gaius had a successful and stable life.  He tried his hand at a lot of things, and organized the work of hired laborers.  He was helpful and resourceful for his extended family, and provided a home or gainful employment for relatives.

 

David Udall knew Gaius very well when young, living with his family and working for him as a teenager.  Two decades later David King Udall would call upon Gaius as an LDS missionary.

Journal of David Udall

When I was 16 years old I went to live at Marden, 5 miles from my fatherís house.  My master kept a boarding school.  I served him 1 year.  I gained the approbation of my master and mistress and got good character.  Then I went to live at Putney 5 miles from London and 50 miles from my fatherís house.  I lived there 4 years and learned many things and gained much information, experience and wisdom.

 

I attended a ďmilk walkĒ for my cousin for 4 years.  I kept myself sober, honest and industrious and gained the approbation of my cousin.  He never found me out in a dishonest action in all the time I was about among a good many men and women.  I kept good company and I gained the approbation of all around me.  After I had lived at Putney one year and a quarter I fell in love with my wife.  The first time I saw her was 7 Feb 1848.

...

 

When I lived at Putney about the year 1847, I became acquainted with a Mormon Elder by the name of John Squires...I received it and was baptized into the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints 15 Jun 1848, and ordained a Teacher 15 Jul 1849 and a Priest on 26 Oct 1849.  Eliza King baptized 6 Nov 1848.

 

I was the first one that obeyed the voice of the servants of God in that region of country that I lived in.  I kept the faith, I preached the Gospel to the people at Richmond, at Hammersmith and at Battersea.

 

On 2 Jan 1851 we set out from my fatherís for America.  We went to London, stayed with our relations 3 days.

Arizona Pioneer Mormon, by David King Udall

p24 Saturday, May 22 1875. Damp and foggy. Went to Putney and found some of my relatives at 10 a.m. Father's cousin, Gaius Udall, was the first relative I saw. We had a good meeting. His daughter, Emma, took me to Wandsworth to meet her sister, "Pop" Howick and her husband and family. I stayed there all night and they treated me splendidly. I thank God that the day has come when I can see my relatives. I thank Him that He has preserved my life on land and sea and I pray that He may be with me in all my labors and travels on this earth. I am thinking of the dear ones at home. Goodnight.

 

Wansworth, 23 May 1875. Uncle Gaius took me to meet my Uncle George Udall, who was not home. While on a drive through Richmond Park, I saw hundreds of oak, walnut, and chestnut trees. I had a good talk with Uncle Gaius about the times he and father were together.

Note: While George is George King Udall, David King's uncle, Gaius is not his uncle, but is his second cousin once removed, with whom David Udall spent some time when young.  David King Udall didn't have an uncle Gaius that we know of.

David King Udall Missionary Journal, Vol II, 18 Apr 1876 - 2 Sep 1876

(transcription of a handwritten copy of original)

Saturday 22 Apr 1876

...From Clapham I took the train for Putney.  Gaius Udall and family all appeared glad to see me.  Gaius gave me a good scolding for not writing them of my where-abouts & I told Emma how I felt about her way of slurring me at times.  I went to bed at 12:30 after a long confab.  Uncle was half drunk so I did not feel much like talking to him though I said considerable one way and another.

 

Sunday 23 Apr 1876

After arising from my bed of slumber the first move I made was to take hold of the water jug which had two gallons of water in it.  As I lifted it from the wash bowl, crash it went to the floor, the handle having given way.  I was only half dressed and had to call to Mrs. Toe (?) to fetch something to sop up the water on the floor.  I canít keep from laughing about it, though it will cost me three shillings to pay for it.

 

Sunday 23 Apr 1876

...I ate dinner at Gaius home and enjoyed the lamb and vegetables very much...From Brother Gibbs I went to Howicks.  They were glad to see me again.  I stayed there an hour and then returned to Putney.

 

London, Monday 24 Apr 1876

Had breakfast this morning at Gaius Udallís and then took a walk with him in the garden and also looked at his horses, pigs and so on.  Had dinner at Mrs. Howicks.  They joked me considerable...

 

Tuesday 25 Apr 1876

I took train from Aldeis (?) Gate to Wansworth Road and then walked 3 miles to Mr. Howick's.  We talked and did not go to bed until 12:30.

 

Wednesday 26 Apr 1876

I got up this morning at 9:30.  I have been up so late the last few nights that I overslept and then too they give me such a comfortable bed here at the Howicks...I had dinner at Gaiusí.  I do not like Emmaís spirit, she is so distant and cool while the rest of the family are extremely kind to me.  From Gaiusí I walked to Barnes and called on Uncle George...

 

Waltham, Saturday 6 May 1876

ÖI called on Uncle George Udall at Barnes and stayed two or three hours, then called at Putney and had supper with Mrs. Udall and her brother, then walked to Wansworth and saw Mrs. Howick for a few minutes.  Her sister Julia Udall who went to the West Indies died there on 31 Mar 1876Ö

 

London, Friday 23 Jun 1876

I left the office at 11 AM for Putney and Wansworth.  Called at George Howickís and had dinner with them and from there walked to Putney and called on Gaius Udallís.  Emma was very cool as usual.  Then I went to Barnes to call on Uncle George Udall.  He and Albert his son were at work, not to be home until the next morning.  I visited an hour or two with Aunt and then returned to Putney and soon went  on to the Howicks in Wansworth.  Mr. Howick and I talked until 2 AM on emigration, the laws of the US, etc. etc.

 

London, Saturday 24 Jun 1876

I got up late after a sound sleep.  The Howicks are very kind to me.

 

London Office, Friday 1 Sep 1876

...This evening I took train and went to Wandsworth.  I gave Mr. Howick and family an invitation to attend our meetings on Sunday Sep 3rd and gave them a handbill announcing it.  They are rather cool towards me.

 

London, Saturday 2 Sep 1876

Last night I stayed at Mr. Howickís.  This morning I called in to see Sister Harding and then went on to Putney and had dinner with Gaius Udallís.  They were pleased to see me again.
