The ist baronet, Sir Matthew Wood, born 1767, was the son of a serge manufacturer, of Tiverton, and at eleven years of age worked in his father's factory. At fourteen he was apprenticed to Mr. Newton, druggist, at Exeter. After serving seven years, he became a traveller in the drug trade, and subsequently established himself in London as a chemist. He afterwards became a hop-merchant, and was chosen Alderman, served asa Sheriff, and in the year of the Peace, 1815, was elected Lord Mayor of London, to which office he was re-elected the following year. He also sat as M.P. for London (L) 1816-43. During his mayoralty he was bold and fearless. On one occasion, after a lawless mob had shot a man on Snow Hill, and were approaching the Exchange, he, with only seven others, rushed through that building, and held the rioters in check, while he arrested several of the ringleaders. He took an active part in the cause of Queen Caroline : he accompanied her through Calais and Dover, on her journey to London in 1820, and placed his house in South Audley Street at her disposal. His fortune was, after much litigation, augmented on the death of Jemmy Wood, the banker, of Gloucester, to the extent of ,250,000. Among these possessions was the estate of Hatherley Court, in Gloucester- shire, a fine old ivy-mantled mansion, and from its name his second son, William Page, who was Lord High.Chancellor 1868-72, selected his title.
