SC 001: Rumford Family Collection

A collection of correspondence, personal financial records, and artifacts related to Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford, and his daughter, Sarah, as well as the Baldwin family.

ADMINISTRATIVE INFORMATION

 

Historical Note

Sarah Thompson [1] (18 October 1774 2 December 1852) inherited the title Countess Rumford from her father, thermodynamic physicist and inventor Sir Benjamin Thompson, Count Rumford. Though ultimately returning to the town of her birth (Concord, NH), Thompson spent decades of her life abroad in London and Paris. She was an amateur writer of poetry, short stories, and biographical sketches.

After the death of her father, Thompson lived as an independent woman of means. In Concord, she is noteworthy for managing a large estate and for her philanthropic endeavors, including the founding of the Rolfe and Rumford Asylums. Her charitable interests—children in need (particularly motherless girls), widows, and the mentally ill—might have been inspired by her own life events. Her father, a Loyalist in the American Revolutionary War, had abandoned her and her mother and fled to England as a result of the political conflict.

Other individuals represented in the collection include an illegitimate half-brother, Charles François Robert Lefebvre, who joined the military (like their father). Lefebvre and his family ultimately gained the use of the Rumford name through Thompson’s bequest. An older half-brother through her mother’s first marriage, Paul Rolfe, is mentioned briefly in the first volume of letters, and Thompson lived with his wife Elizabeth in Concord for a time after Paul’s death in 1819.

Thompson adopted a ward, Emma Gannell (1826-1923). Emma’s mother, Mary (née Grove), had also been in Thompson’s care as a young girl, and had been living in her home when Emma was born. Raised in London, Emma traveled with her guardian to Paris, where she was educated, and later the pair relocated to Thompson's estate in New Hampshire. Thompson acted as guardian and “aunt” to Emma until her final years, when in turn the younger woman served as companion and caregiver. Just before Thompson’s death, Emma met and married an itinerant painter named John Burgum. They received a small inheritance from Thompson, and were able to remain in Concord for the rest of their lives.

The Baldwin family also figures prominently in the collection, as Thompson corresponded frequently with her business advisor James F. Baldwin. The latter was the son of Colonel Loammi Baldwin, a close friend of Count Rumford’s.


[1] Sarah Thompson will be referred to by her surname to distinguish her from her father. Emma Gannell, whose surname changed with her marriage, will be referred to by her first name.


Scope and Content

This collection consists of six volumes of letterbooks, arranged in rough chronological order dating from 1775-1870 (bulk 1844-1854), as well as additional artifacts related to Count Rumford and his descendants. These materials were bequeathed to the Academy in 1912 by Catherine Rumford Griffith (d. 1910), the granddaughter of Colonel Baldwin through his son, George Rumford Baldwin. The six letterbooks are housed in one box and the artifacts are housed in two boxes.

The bulk of the letterbooks is correspondence from Sarah Thompson, Countess Rumford, to James Fowle Baldwin. The letters concern her international and financial affairs (such as the Bavarian pension she was entitled to through her father) as well as the management of her estate in Concord, NH. Her letters are a blend of personal and professional, as Baldwin was both a primary business associate as well as a lifelong friend.

A central theme throughout Thompson’s correspondence is the contrast between life in the United States and Europe in the nineteenth century. Volume 2, which contains a large collection of letters from her years in Paris, emphasize the social strain of an American living in the French capital. Volumes 3 through 5, which concern mainly her life in Concord, detail the challenges of living in a significantly more remote community, with different weather patterns and the responsibility of overseeing the “Rumford Villa” (as her ward calls their home). A small portion of her correspondence is written from her home in Brompton Row, London.

Thompson addressed most of her letters to both James F. Baldwin and his wife Sarah. Generally, the pages to James concern business requests and general descriptions of local happenings that she adds to or elaborates on in the pages to Sarah. Thompson’s ward, Emma, also adds a significant amount of personal notes addressed to Mrs. Baldwin, beginning in Volume 3. This volume also contains drawings by Emma, illustrating her guardian’s poetry. Emma writes on her behalf during the first half of Volume 6, which covers Thompson’s illness and death.

In addition to Thompson’s letters, this collection includes James Baldwin’s lists of her expenses and the development of her will and testament. A copy of the will, and most of the correspondence regarding it, can be found in Volume 5. A portion of Volume 6 concerns Baldwin acting as an executor of her will, following her death.

George E. Ellis, who wrote a multi-part biography of Count Rumford for the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1871), contributed largely to the remaining portion of Volume 6. This content includes research likely compiled by Ellis, such as birth, marriage, and death lists for the Thompson and Baldwin families in Woburn. In this volume there is also correspondence between Ellis and George R. Baldwin, investigating the Rumfords for the purpose of his book.

Relatedly, Volume 1 mostly covers significantly earlier events and focuses on correspondence between Count Rumford and Loammi Baldwin. A very small portion covers an inquiry into Rumford’s allegiance in 1775; more cover the period following Thompson’s reunion with Rumford in London approximately 20 years later. The letters, primarily from Rumford or his daughter to Loammi or his wife, include letters from London, Munich, and Paris. Some of Rumford’s letters involve the gift of money to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. This volume also covers Thompson’s stay in the United States (primarily Boston) before she managed her own estate, and the later inheritance of her home in Concord.

In 2021 the volumes of correspondence and related documents were disbound, conserved, and digitized by the Northeast Document Conservation Center. The materials were rehoused in archival folders and boxes in their original order.

Volume

6 disbound volumes of correspondence and other records in 3 documents cases, and 2 boxes of artifacts (3.5 linear feet).
