Lady Mabel Hall School, Ecclesfield

Recommended Posts

Hi people,

I wonder if anyone can help me. For years I have been hearing about Lady Mable Hall in Ecclesfield school (I didnt go there).

 

Why was it called Lady mable hall?

 

I heard that there was a actress "Lady Mable" who was acting when someone opened the stage door an she fell to her death.

 

Is this true?

But the stage has a solid concrete floor................:huh: ( There is a trapdoor at the RHS of the wings though )

 

Anyway - the hall was dedicated to local dignatary Lady Mabel Smith - Her picture is on the wall near the front of the hall. Google her name - there are lots of links.

Lady Mabel Florence Harriet Wentworth-Fitzwilliam (14 July 1870 – 26 September 1951) was an English socialist politician, later known as Lady Mabel Smith, after whom the hall is named.

 

Her father was William Wentworth Fitzwilliam, Viscount Milton, the eldest son of William Wentworth-FitzWilliam, 6th Earl FitzWilliam. Her father died before inheriting the Earldom and it passed to her brother, William Wentworth-FitzWilliam, 7th Earl FitzWilliam, whose lifestyle she criticized; "he had so much and everyone else had so little" .

She married Lt. Col. William Mackenzie Smith on 29 July 1899 and went to live in Barnes Hall near Grenoside, Sheffield. After her marriage she was known as Lady Mabel Smith.

 

She was a local politician in South Yorkshire, firstly as a West Riding County Councillor and later as a county Alderman and member of the Workers' Educational Authority[5].

 

Although a member of the aristocracy, she was whole heartledly committed to the Labour Party, and fought many of its causes. Her name was taboo at Wentworth Woodhouse. She and her husband are buried in Ecclesfield Churchyard opposite the West Door.

So all the stories of her dying on stage are all wrong then lol

 

Yes they are. Total twaddle. The hall was dedicated to her memory after she died. She was great aunt to the 4th Earl of Wharncliffe (The Rocking Earl).
