According to family tradition, Thomas Stanier played the flute at the first performance of Mendelssohn's "Elijah".

John Bawden says of the performance

The first performance, conducted by Mendelssohn himself, took place on the 26th August 1846 before an audience of two thousand who had packed into Birmingham Town Hall for the eagerly-awaited event. It was an unprecedented success. No less than four choruses and four arias were encored, and the applause evidently bordered on the hysterical. Mendelssohn recounted the experience in a letter to his brother. 'No work of mine went so admirably the first time of execution, or was received with such enthusiasm by both the musicians and the audience,' he wrote. The Times' music correspondent was even more effusive. 'The last note of Elijah was drowned in a long-continued unanimous volley of plaudits, vociferous, and deafening,' he reported. 'Mendelssohn ..... descended from his position on the conductor's rostrum; but he was compelled to appear again, amidst renewed cheers and huzzas. Never was there a more complete triumph; never a more thorough and speedy recognition of a great work of art.' It was without doubt the crowning glory of Mendelssohn's spectacularly successful career.

Ellen Warner divorced James Harris, and resided with Alfred Bolus, adopting his surname by deed poll. But they never married, as Alfred Bolus never divorced his first wife.

James Archibald Warner emigrated to the USA, arriving 20 November 1922. He went to Brackenridge PA and lived with his sister Lilian, until he could bring his family. His wife and 2 children arrived in the USA 8 September 1923. Eventually he moved to Niagara Falls NY, where he lived for the rest of his life

Frederick Thorneywork had sailed to New York on the "Carmania", arriving 11 November 1906, leaving his family behind. The 1911 Census shows the household as

NameRelationshipAgeMarital StatusOccupationBorn
Alice Thorneyworkhead 36married (11 years) Bolton LAN
Fred Thorneywork 10  SchoolWylde Green STS
Nellie Thorneywork  6 SchoolWylde Green STS
David Thorneywork 1   Small Heath WAR

However, at some point he and his family moved to Australia: in 1914 he and Alice are listed in the Electoral Roll of Alphington VIC, living at Miller Street. Both Frederick and his son David are listed in the 1931 Electoral Roll of Melbourne, Frederick a jeweller at 206 Roden Street and David a tool maker at 90 Roden Street. Nellie Thorneywork married in England in 1937, so either did not emigrate with the family, or subsequently returned.

An engagement notice in the Argus (Melbourne VIC) for 17 September 1945 reads
GRANT - THORNEYWORK: Evelyn Septima Resch, only daughter of Mrs E. Grant and the late Capt. A. E. Grant, Avondale St., Hampton and David, second son of Mr. F. Thorneywork, of Montrose, and the late Mrs. F. Thorneywork.
