John Robert Peryer

John Robert Peryer

John Robert Peryer, the son of George J. Peryer and Sarah Ann Peryer, was born in Camberwell, London, on 3rd September, 1891. His father was a cigar maker and journeyman and his mother was the daughter of a local baker and sub postmaster. Peryer's parents were both refugees. (1)

Peryer was awarded at scholarship to attend Alleyn's School in September 1910. During his time at the school, he showed a particular talent for learning languages. In 1916 Peryer was awarded a place at university. However, it was during the First World War and instead joined the 16th Battalion London Regiment (Queen's Westminster Rifles), at the age of 17. The following year he was recommended for Officer Cadet Training. In September 1917 he received the rank of 2nd Lieutenant. After gaining his commission, John was posted to 21st Battalion (1st Surrey Rifles) and received orders to go overseas to the Western Front. After arriving in France he was transferred to 4th Battalion (Royal Fusiliers).

In 1918 Peryer was involved in defeating the German Spring Offensive. As a talented linguist he acted as an intelligence officer during operations, liaising with the French and British Military Command. In April 1919 he was recommended for the Military Cross for this work. He also received the Croix de Guerre, a military decoration awarded by France to servicemen who distinguished themselves by acts of heroism when in combat with enemy forces.

After the end of war, Peryer returned to England and was officially discharged from the Army in April 1919. He quickly returned to his studies and completed his education at the London University in 1923, gaining a Bachelor of Science degree with honours in Mathematics as well as Teaching Diploma. Shortly after receiving his degree, John married Harriet Marie Raxworthy. (2)

John Peryer taught at Lymm Grammar School before moving to Worthing where John became Senior Mathematics Master at Worthing High School for Boys. He lived at Allendyne, 24 Offington Gardens. Along with Charles Barber, Worthing's first Labour Party councillor, and his wife, Marion Barber he established the International Friendship League, an organisation attempting to "foster peace and harmony between groups of young people from a spectrum of European nations." (3)

At an election meeting in Broadwater on 16th October 1933, Charles Bentinck Budd revealed he had recently met Sir Oswald Mosley and had been convinced by his political arguments and was now a member of the British Union of Fascists (BUF). Budd added that if he was elected to the local council "you will probably see me walking about in a black shirt". (4)

Budd won the contest and the national press reported that Worthing was the first town in the country to elect a Fascist councillor. Worthing was now described as the "Munich of the South". A few days later Mosley announced that Budd was the BUF Administration Officer for Sussex. Budd also caused uproar by wearing his black shirt to council meetings. (5)

On 4th January, 1934, Budd reported that over 150 people in Worthing had joined the British Union of Fascists. Some of the new members were former communists but the greatest intake had come from increasingly disaffected Conservatives. The Weekly Fascist News described the growth in membership as "phenomenal" as a few months ago members could be counted on one's fingers, and now "hundreds of young men and women -.together with the many leading citizens of the town - now participated in its activities". (6)

A Worthing Anti-Fascist Committee was established in the town. John Robert Peryer became one of the leaders of the group. (7) Peryer had support from the monthly Worthing Journal. In March 1935, it reported with pleasure the resignation of Superintendent Clement Bristow. It was seen by many as a consequence of his apparent sympathy for the fascist cause, for in court he had described fascists in the town as "very nice Worthing people". (8) A few months later it reported: "Fascism has come to Worthing, but Worthing has shown through its accredited representatives that it is not yet ready to submit to a Dictatorship." (9)

Peryer, who continued to teach at Worthing High School for Boys until his retirement in 1961. He continued to be interested in local history and in 1983, he recorded an oral history interview which reflected on his personal war experience, and life in Worthing in a project run by West Sussex County Council Library Service. (10)

John Robert Peryer died at the age of 92 on the 8th April 1989.

John Robert Peryer was born in Camberwell on September 3rd 1891 to George J. Peryer and Sarah Ann Peryer. During this time, the family lived at 77 Bellenden Rd, a short distance away from Bellenden Road School where John was first educated. After showing good potential, John was awarded at scholarship to attend Alleyn's School in September 1910. John was awarded this fee exemption for the whole of his school career and consistently maintained a high standard of work. This saw him receive two prizes in 1913, one for Physics and the other for the Canon Carver Junior French Prize. During his time at the school, John showed a particular talent for learning languages which would later be put to good use during his military career. As well as excelling in his academic studies, John was also a member of the Alleyn's Combined Cadet Force where he earned the rank of Lance Corporal.

With such a desire to succeed, John was naturally favoured by his teachers. A year after joining Alleyn's, he was first in his form and was labelled as an 'exceptional boy' in his 1911 End of Term Report. His work and conduct were always regarded as 'excellent' and he was known by all as an intelligent and hardworking individual. By 1916, John had matriculated for the University of London with distinction and looked to continue his academic studies. However, with the First World War showing no sign of being the short war that many had imagined, John delayed his pursuit of further education in favour of signing up to the war effort and carrying out his duty. After being found fit for service, he joined the 16th Battalion London Regiment (Queen's Westminster Rifles) as a Private on June 16th 1916, at the age of 17. Given John's background with the CCF and his ability to speak both French and German, he quickly proved himself to be a reliable soldier, capable of leading men in battle. As a result, he was promoted to Lance Corporal and later to Corporal in 1917. After just a few months in his new role, John had made enough of an impression on his Commanding Officers to be recommended for Officer Cadet Training. He completed this training in September 1917 and received the rank of 2nd Lieutenant at 19 years old. After gaining his commission, John was posted to 21st Battalion (1st Surrey Rifles) and received orders to go overseas to the Western Front. After arriving in France with the battalion, he was transferred again, this time to 4th Battalion (Royal Fusiliers) who were in desperate need of recruits to replace their losses.

John Robert Peryer, of Allendyne, 24 Offington Gardens, a maths teacher at the Worthing High School for Boys, became one of the leaders of the anti-fascist movement in Worthing. Along with Marion Barber, he established the International Friendship League, an organisation attempting to “foster peace and harmony between groups of young people from a spectrum of European nations.” Peryer’s parents were themselves refugees and, along with his wife, Harriet Peryer, spent their adult life in promoting international friendship.

Clandon Park a National Trust property in West Clandon, Surrey put together a small exhibition which was part of a series that had been running through the year under the umbrella 'Clandon Uncovered'.

The exhibition in question revolved around an album that many West Clandon residents signed in 1889. This album was Christmas greetings (signatures, poems, prayers and sketches) and sent to the 4th Earl of Onslow who was governor of New Zealand from 1889 to 1892.

Clandon Park researched some of the signatories (including James& Martha Peryer) to see if there were any interesting stories as part of the exhibition. We duly provided some information but unfortunately Chris and I were unable to visit Clandon Park. Clandon Park were kind enough to send an image of the page on which the signatures appear:

Pride Month: Nicholas Syrett’s ‘An Open Secret’ looks back on what happened when a member of Chicago’s high society adopted his longtime lover

The first lines of Nicholas Syrett’s third book, “An Open Secret: The Family Story of Robert and John Gregg Allerton” had me hooked: “On March 4, 1960, Robert Allerton became a father. He was 86-years-old at the time and his newly adopted son, John Gregg, was 60. The pair had already been living together and calling themselves father and son for almost four decades.”

It is here that Syrett, a professor of women, gender and sexuality studies at the University of Kansas, takes us into the world of an Illinois couple — one born into a rich family with ties to the founding of the Union Stock Yards and the First National Bank of Chicago the other an orphan in his early 20s, attending the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for architecture with a part-time job and inheritance money. The Allerton legacy continues today: One only has to go to the Art Institute of Chicago visit estates in Monticello, Illinois, or Lawai Ka on Hawaiian island of Kaua’i or the Chicago landmark hotel the Warwick Allerton on Michigan Avenue. Allerton’s exploits were often the fodder of society columnists for the Chicago Tribune through the years and when he became “fatherly” with Gregg their travels too made the paper.

Syrett said he stumbled across the duo when doing research at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign for another book. The Allertons donated their Monticello home and all their papers to UIUC, and an archivist who knew of Syrett’s interest in gender studies told him about the property that was once occupied by a couple who referred to themselves as father and son. Syrett said he liked the idea that their story complicates the history of what queer couplehood.

The archivist “said lots of people around here, and lots of queer people, don’t believe that they were really father and son,” Syrett said. “I thought these people are interesting and also probably anomalous in the narrative of queer history, which was something I already knew about because I’ve taught queer history. I found them interesting, because we don’t have many examples of public couples from this era, and while they were not publicly a couple, they sort of were at the same time.”

We talked to Syrett about how Allerton and Gregg met during a time when persecution of same-sex couples was on the rise and how the pair fashioned a cover story that was something of an “open secret,” enabling them to navigate in the world. The following interview has been condensed and edited.

Q: Why write this book now?

A: I think (the Allertons are) interesting, because as of 2015 it was possible for same-sex couples to get married in the United States — that was in the background of my thinking when I was doing this. They had a very different solution to being together. Obviously, marriage was not available to them, and we don’t even know if they would have married if it had been available, because that would mean “being public,” which they never were about their sexuality. I think it’s very easy, especially in Pride Month, to celebrate all gay and lesbian people in the past. In part, I am interested in thinking about them as gay people, but also they were not always that appealing. I write about instances of racism and anti-Semitism, and they’re colonizing in Hawaii, so I think we need to be measured in our evaluation of people who were indeed pioneering in some ways, but that does not mean they did not have flaws.

Q: Do you think the Allerton adoption story adds to the lexicon of gay historical literature?

A: That is my hope. The field of gay and lesbian history as compared to the field of women’s history or the history of African Americans is really pretty young. There have not been people doing this for nearly as long as people have been writing political history or presidential history. So, every new story that we can find and write about is really enriching the overall picture of what life was like for queer people in the U.S. This is just one more story that helps us provide greater context.

Q: Can one still adopt an adult in Illinois?

A: Yes. It’s not super common, but it is possible. It was the 1960s when they did it. They were doing it for inheritance reasons. It was, for sure, a workaround that some gay people used, even though that was definitely not why the laws were passed. Granted, you can make a will and give someone anything you want in that will, but if it was someone who you raised as a child but never formally adopted them, you could do it as an adult.

Q: Did you find any research on why the state made adult adoptions possible?

A: A law like this is hardly going to be used by most people in a state. My guess is that when it did happen — generally speaking — it might have come about because of pressure by some people in particular who wanted this to exist. There’s been some speculation that I could never confirm that Allerton may actually have tried to influence a legislator in Illinois to pass this legislation. It wouldn’t shock me if it were, in the various states where it happened, someone was really interested in this and got the ear of a legislator who was sympathetic. Lawyers had written that they were well aware that people were using it as a way for same-sex couples to protect their inheritances. But If I’m in a same-sex couple, I can leave my estate to anyone I want to in a will. But the issue is whether my family will contest that will. So that’s the problem. I think as more and more people gained acceptance, they probably don’t need marriage, or adoption they just write a will and leave everything to their partner if they want to.

Q: In your research, did you find anything that said Allerton’s or Gregg’s family knew about the relationship?

A: I did talk to John Gregg’s niece. She told me that when she was growing up, she remembers Gregg and Allerton coming to visit and she did not fully understand what their relationship was at the time. But she remembers as she got older that she understood from her father (Gregg’s brother) that they were gay and that her father did not approve of the relationship. But he also loved his brother and did want him to be able to visit. It was not something that she believed they talked about openly, so the fiction of the father and son allowed them not to talk about it, even though everyone was pretty much aware of what was going on with their relationship.


Magna Carta

Magna Carta should not be seen as a sign of surrender. In John's mind, it was only ever a stalling action, intended to demonstrate his reasonableness to the undecided baronial majority in the run-up to inevitable hostilities. It was a bargaining chip: nothing more.

By November 1215, John had the rebels' backs to the wall.

It probably meant little more to the rebels either, and the fact that they reneged on their agreement to surrender London after the signing demonstrates their disdain of the Runnymede proceedings. Still, the articles of the charter show that John had pushed his barony too far.

After an opening chapter guaranteeing the rights of the Church, the next 15 chapters were provisions designed to curb the king's exploitation of loopholes in feudal custom: limiting scutages and relief payments, and banning the abuses of privilege common in wardship. A further ten chapters dealt with finances, and another important block confirmed people's rights under the Common Law.

It is these latter that have been seen as crucial, as they subjected the king to the law of the land for the first time in Britain's history, and this clause is the only one that remains on the statute books today. Finally, they sought to ensure that the king carried out his promises, safeguarded the rebels from any comebacks, demanded that he fire his hated mercenary captains and tied the king to a council of 25 members in an effort to ensure his co-operation.

It was doomed to failure. Magna Carta lasted less than three months.

By November 1215, John had the rebels' backs to the wall. He had recaptured Rochester Castle (which had been surrendered to them in September), and was poised to strike at London.

The rebels, for their part, had offered the crown of England to Philip's son, Prince Louis of France, and he hurried reinforcements into London. John failed to grasp the nettle. Instead of striking at London in one final, decisive blow, he took the percentage option and began ravaging the rebels' heartlands.

This gave Louis time to muster an army, and on 22 May 1216, he landed at Sandwich. John had been ready to receive them, but overnight his navy was scattered by a storm and his supporters, unwilling to trust his largely mercenary force, advocated retreat. Once again, John played the percentages and withdrew.

Reunion 12-14 October 2018

Another memorable reunion, thoughtfully crafted by Rosie Haggerty (Fairclough) and Peter & Jan Stein. The GYM reunion took place at the Radisson Blu hotel in central Cardiff.

Five years ago there were 35 of us, this time 42! It was a really special, relaxed, event. Several people came who had never been before. There was a lot of warmth, banter and camaraderie. The spirit of Glan-y-Mor is still very much alive.

The weekend was as follows:

* A get-together in the bar on Friday night.

* A free day on Saturday to explore Cardiff. Most went to Cardiff castle.

* On Saturday night we had a hot buffet in a private suite at the hotel with 70s music, a 70s quiz and entertainment (mostly ourselves).

* Sunday morning saw our usual pilgrimage to the Bridge Cafe (and nearby cafe as the Bridge was full) and the Knap before we made our way home.

Next reunion will be 13-15 October 2023. Time to go:

In memory of Glan-y-Mor, the former UWIST hall of residence and YMCA holiday centre, and in honour of the Gimblett family who ran it from soon after it’s construction in 1932 until it closed in 1979.

John D. Rockefeller

Our editors will review what you’ve submitted and determine whether to revise the article.

John D. Rockefeller, in full John Davison Rockefeller, (born July 8, 1839, Richford, New York, U.S.—died May 23, 1937, Ormond Beach, Florida), American industrialist and philanthropist, founder of the Standard Oil Company, which dominated the oil industry and was the first great U.S. business trust.

How did John D. Rockefeller get famous?

John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil Company acquired pipelines and terminal facilities, purchased competing refineries, and vigorously sought to expand its markets. Those practices enabled the company to negotiate with railroads for favoured rates on its shipments of oil. By 1882 Standard Oil had a near monopoly on the oil business in the United States.

What were John D. Rockefeller’s accomplishments?

John D. Rockefeller founded the Standard Oil Company, which dominated the oil industry and was the first great U.S. business trust. Later in life he turned his attention to charity. He made possible the founding of the University of Chicago and endowed major philanthropic institutions. Rockefeller’s benefactions during his lifetime totaled more than $500 million.

What was John D. Rockefeller remembered for?

John D. Rockefeller was remembered for his wealth and for the aggressive competitive practices of the Standard Oil Company. Public hostility toward monopolies, of which Standard was the best known, caused some countries to enact anti-monopoly laws. For these reasons, Rockefeller and other heads of monopolistic companies were called robber barons by their critics.

Rockefeller was the eldest son and second of six children born to traveling physician and snake-oil salesman William (“Big Bill”) Avery Rockefeller and Eliza Davison Rockefeller. He moved with his family to Moravia, New York, and, in 1851, to Oswego, New York, where he attended Oswego Academy. The family relocated to Strongsville, a town near Cleveland, Ohio, in 1853, and six years later—after attending and later dropping out of Cleveland’s Central High School, taking a single business class at Folsom Mercantile College, and working as a bookkeeper—Rockefeller established his first enterprise, a commission business dealing in hay, grain, meats, and other goods. Sensing the commercial potential of the expanding oil production in western Pennsylvania in the early 1860s, he built his first oil refinery, near Cleveland, in 1863. Within two years it was the largest refinery in the area, and thereafter Rockefeller devoted himself exclusively to the oil business.

In 1870 Rockefeller and a few associates, a group that included American financier Henry M. Flagler, incorporated the Standard Oil Company (Ohio). Because of Rockefeller’s emphasis on economical operations, Standard prospered and began to buy out its competitors until, by 1872, it controlled nearly all the refineries in Cleveland. That fact enabled the company to negotiate with railroads for favoured rates on its shipments of oil. It acquired pipelines and terminal facilities, purchased competing refineries in other cities, and vigorously sought to expand its markets in the United States and abroad. In 1881 Rockefeller and his associates placed the stock of Standard of Ohio and its affiliates in other states under the control of a board of nine trustees, with Rockefeller at the head. They thus established the first major U.S. “trust” and set a pattern of organization for other monopolies. By 1882 Standard Oil had a near monopoly on the oil business in the United States.

The aggressive competitive practices of Standard Oil, which many regarded as ruthless, and the growing public hostility toward monopolies, of which Standard was the best-known, caused some industrialized states to enact antimonopoly laws and led to the passage by the U.S. Congress of the Sherman Antitrust Act in 1890 (see also antitrust law). In 1892 the Ohio Supreme Court held that the Standard Oil Trust was a monopoly in violation of an Ohio law prohibiting monopolies. Rockefeller evaded the decision by dissolving the trust and transferring its properties to companies in other states, with interlocking directorates so that the same nine men controlled the operations of the affiliated companies. In 1899 these companies were brought back together in a holding company, Standard Oil Company (New Jersey), which existed until 1911, when the U.S. Supreme Court declared it in violation of the Sherman Antitrust Act and therefore illegal. Standard Oil’s questionable ethics were also taken to task by American journalist Ida Tarbell in her 19-part exposé and commentary called The History of the Standard Oil Company, which was released in installments by McClure’s Magazine between 1902 and 1904.

A devout Baptist, Rockefeller turned his attention increasingly during the 1890s to charities and benevolence after 1897 he devoted himself completely to philanthropy. He made possible the founding of the University of Chicago in 1892, and by the time of his death—from a heart attack in 1937, shortly before his 98th birthday—he had given it some $35 million. In association with his son, John D. Rockefeller, Jr., he created major philanthropic institutions, including the Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research (renamed Rockefeller University) in New York City (1901), the General Education Board (1902), and the Rockefeller Foundation (1913). Rockefeller’s benefactions during his lifetime totaled more than $500 million.
