Biographical history

Thomas Herbert Curteis Jarrold, known as Herbert, Thomas Herbert or T.H.C, was the third and youngest son of Samuel Jarrold, the second son from Samuel's second marriage to Elizabeth Louisa Fisher. He became a partner in Jarrold & Sons in 1890 and at first headed the wholesale and despatch departments and coastal branches of the business, while his brother William headed the publishing side of the business, although it appears that he was also involved in publishing to some extent. John Edgar Moorhouse, was appointed a company director in 1903 and initially headed the retail arm, but after Mr Moorhouse's death in 1920, Herbert took over this area.\r\n\r\nHe married Mabel Beatrice Curl, a daughter of the family which owned Curl's department store in Norwich and the only daughter of Jacob Curl, in 1904. They had two children, Herbert John Jarrold (1906-1979), known as John, and Mary Elizabeth (1909-?), known as Betsy, later Mrs Redshaw. John took over the family business after the deaths of his father and uncle William.\r\n\r\nHe was an active supporter of the Young Mens' Christian Association (YMCA) and served as president of the Norwich Chamber of Commerce for several years.\r\n\r\nIn 1919, he moved to Pine Banks in Thorpe St Andrew, Norwich, from his previous residence Walpole House, also at Thorpe St Andrew.
