I'n not getting into the correct identity dispute with this, but for info, I have this rose obtained as JC from the UK in the early 90's. I don't know who from but not Beales. Its in excess of 2 metres high here, by 3 metre width. Its been in the ground about 8 years.

Virginia (Jane), daughter of the Prince Esterhazy of Galantha, married in 1830 in Vienna Marchese Boccella, an Italian nobleman, prominent member of the court of Grand Duke of Lucca, Charles Ludovic of Bourbon-Parme. The marriage was not very successful and there were many rumours about her friendship with the Duke, friendship very useful to the political career of the husband. Also after the Duke sold the Dukedom to Leopold II of Habsburg-Lorraine, Grand Duke of Tuscany, in 1847, the rumours about the Marchesa Boccella’s relationships continued. During the 1848-1849 revolution and restoration Marchesa Boccella was a supporter of the Austrian troops that occupied the state until 1855. She was reported to ride with the troops and to attend the executions of the rebels.

I have had this rose in my garden for many years now, and it sort of grows on me, now being one of my favourites. My advice to gardeners who want to try old garden roses in their gardens was to start with Rose de Rescht( see uploaded photo of this) However should you want more of the kind, my suggestion is to move on to this one. To judge form uploaded comments, some gardeners seem to have problems getting this to flower and repeat flower. According to my experience with many old repeaflowering garden roses, they need some years to build up a good repeatflowering potential. So don`t worry, they usually come around eventually. The only thing you have to do is to be patient. My Jacques Cartier is just getting better and better by the years. There is very little disease, and the large,densly filled flowers also have a fairly good rain tolerance.
