FROM MAY A.D. 1807 TO SEPTEMBER A.D. 1 837. 

Part II. 





James, son of James Barratt^ corn dealer, Cheetham (14). March u- 

For mention of the father, see supra^ p. 82. 

James Barratt, the son, appears among the senior scholars on the speech day of 
1S25. He practised as an attorney in Manchester for many years, and after- 
wards was a partner in the firm of Marsh and Barratt, attornies, Warrington. 
He honght and resided for some years at Lymm hall, near Warrington, the 
mansion of the old &milies of DomyiUe, Masoie and Taylor (see Ormerod's 
Cheshire) ; but in x868, warned by the approach of fatal disease, he retired from 
business, left Lymm and took up his residence at Carleton hall, Cumberland, 
where he died on the 15th May 1869. He was buried in Lymm churchyard, 
where there is a monument recording his death and that of his first wife which 
occurred on the 2nd April 1851, aged 34. 

Mr. Barratt was twice married, leaving by his first wife (to whom there is a 
memorial window in Lymm hall chapel in the north aisle of the parish church), 
a son, now a solicitor, and daughters, and by his second wife one daughter. 
His widow resides at Carleton, and since his death Lymm hall has been pur- 
chased by Mr. Battersby. 

Mr. Barratt, who, with Mr. John Clough as his colleague, acted as secretary to the 
committee when Dr. Smith was presented with a testimonial by his former pupils 
in 1837, is spoken of as a man of high character and desenredly respected, and 
as possessed of considerable taste, shown by the way in which he restored and 
furnished Lymm hall, and laid out the grounds adjoining it. His name fre- 
quently occurs among the old scholars assembled at the anniyersary dinners. 

Samuel, son of Richard Potter^ brewer^ Smedley (13). m 

For his elder brothers, Richard, WiUiam and Michael, see supra^ pp. 82, 141, 17 1. 

Samuel Potter, on leaying school, was sent to the works of Messrs. Hole and 
Wilkinson of Chorley, at that time well-known calico printers, and pursued the 
study of chemistry under Dr. Dalton. After some of the yicissitudes common 
in trade, he carried on a yery successful business at Chorley in connection with 
Messrs. McNaughton and Barton, residing at Burgh hall, near to their works; 
and haying preyiously retired on a competency, died unmarried on the 19th 
March 1868. 

Arthur William^ son of Peter Dumvile, attorney^ Manchester (11). 24. 

He was admitted a member of the Royal college of surgeons and L.9.A. in 1835, 
and F.R.C.S. England in 1852, and was for many years connected with the Man- 
chester royal infirmary, first as dispensary surgeon and afterwards as surgeon, 
and was also consulting surgeon to the Ardwick and Ancoats dispensary. 

Very high testimony is borne by members of the medical profession to his charac- 
ter as well as his scientific and practical attainments. He contributed seyeral 
articles to the British Medical Journal^ and among them one On abscess on 
the brain. **It is much to be regretted^" says one who was his schoolfellow 



and intimate friend in after life, and a distinguished member of the same pro- 
fession, ** that he should not hare oome forward more prominently as a medical 
writer, for he was a man of most oultirated mind, thoroughly demoted to his 
work, nnd in all respects au cowrawt with the scientific progress of the day. 
He possessed in an eminent degree the confidence of hia numerous patients, 
and his opinion was largely sought by his brethren in the neighbouring towns." 

Mr. A. W. Bumyille was twice married, first to his cousin, Miss Gleadall of Hali- 
fax, who died in childbirth, leaTing one daughter now resident in Southporty 
and secondly to a daughter of the late James Lees, esq., a wealthy cotton spinner 
of Oldham, who surriyes him, but s.p. 

Mr. DumTille died on the 8th July 1871, at the age of 58, and was buried on the 
1 3th at S. SBTiour*s church, Chorlton-upon-Medlock. 

August ^ 5. William, son of William Hunt, wool manufacturer, Rochdale (14). 

His name occurs among the senior scholars at the public speech days of 1826 and 
1827, and as an exhibitioner of the school in the latter year. Ho was elected to 
a scholarship at S. John's college, Cambridge, but I do not find his name among 
the graduates. I think he died early in life. 

i Henry, son of William Braybrooke, barrack-master, Manchester 


s. James, son of William Braybrooke, barrack-master, Manchester 

5. Robert, son of George Hall, publican, Manchester (14). 

5. William, son of Major Roberts, artillery, Manchester (10). 

5. Walter, son of Walter Bentley, shoeseller, Manchester (13). 

[The eldest son of Walter H. Bentley, who was a dealer in boote and shoes at 
a well-frequented shop in S. Mary's gate. The father, a natiye of Stafford, 
reoeifed the name of Horton from his godfather, a man of some celebrity 
there and of whose portrait, publuhed in lithography, I possess a copy. 
This rather eccentric but ingenious man might occupy a niche in the temple 
of neglected biographies. One incident in his life, curiously enough, may 
serre for an example. When the well-known elephant, Cluny, went mad and 
was shot on Exeter 'change, Bentley purchased the remains of the noble beast 
and exhibited the skeleton before the public of his adopted town, together with 
the manipulated anatomies of a deer, some other creature, a frog and a mouse, 
for companions' sake. But the idea, howcTer original, prored not peculiarly 
locupletiye ; all the same, Bentley nerer learned the legitimate lesson it should 
hare taught him, that " there's nothing like leather." 

I do not know what became of Walter Bentley, or of two other sons, James and 
Charles, who, in after years, received part of their education at Manchester 
school. R. L."] 


Arthur^ son of John Borron^ gentleman^ Warrington (14). August j. 

For his father, John Arthur Borron, see MeffitUr^ Tol. ii. p. 120, where this Bon is 
referred to. 

Arthur, the eldest son, took part in the pnhlio speeches of 1825 and 1826,. and 
graduated A.B. of Trinity college, Cambridge, 1831. He was intended for the 
bar, but I think nerer called, and, when his father's embarrassments arose, 
determined to go out to America, and there he is now practising as a medical 

Henry^ son of the late rev. William Orofts^ North Orimstone (14). i. 

The rer. William Crofts, B.D., nearly twenty years Ticar of North Qrimston, died 
on the 28th August 18 14, aged 61 years.

B.A. on the i8th NoTcmber 1830. He became rector of the first mediety of 
Linton, near Skipton, Yorkshire, in 1833, and married on the i6th October 
1855, Miss Elizabeth Somervell, and died 8.p. at Munich on the 23rd April 1857, 
aged 48. His death was Teiy sudden, and he had long suffered from heart 
disease and resigned his benefice some few years before his death. He took an 
actire part in the erection of a new school at Grassington in the parish of 
Linton, and of a new church at Hebden ; his parishioners gratefully recognising 
his efforts on their behalf. .The present rector of Linton says : " He was my 
oo-rector for some years, and I found him a rery conscientious and upright man. 
He had a curate during the greatest part of his incumbency, as he was Tery 
delicate and feeble, not haying strength for work." He was buried at Munich, 
and his widow placed a monument oyer his graye with a cross in alto relieyo. 
There is also a memorial brass on the north wall of the chancel of Linton 
church, erected by his brothers and sisters. He was a good linguist, a cleyer 
artist, and a consistent and humble christian. 

Henry Crofts was nephew to the rey. W. Carr, B.D., the yenerable incumbent of 
Bolton abbey for the long period of fifty-four years, who died there on the 
a5th July 1843, aged 80. He inherited considerable property from his uncle,

parish church has been restored and greatly enlai^ed, and enriched with 
eleven stained glass windows, chiefly from the manufactory of Messrs. Ward 
and Hughes of London; the east window of the chanoel being considered 
one of the best specimens of modem stained glass in the county. Three 
new schools, in addition to the rebuilding of the boys* endowed grammar 
school, hare also been built during the same period. 

He published in 1 850, A plain statement of the doctrine of the Church of England

1 8 10, was for three years at the grammar school, Ashbourne, before his admission

Mr. W. Haughton, who married in August 1841, Catherine, daughter of the rey. 
William Qunn, rector of Sloley in Norfolk, and of Gorlston in Suffolk, author of 
Cartonensiay aod other works on art, and by whom he has one son, William 
Hoghton Haughton, is the author of pamphlets on Tithes national property^ 
Macintosh, 1868; Direct taxationf Taxes and Bepreseniations^ Stuart and Allen. 

Some of Mr. Haughton's proposals would be startling to Manchester political 
economists. In his pamphlet on Direct taxation^ he proposes to tax grain, which 
from uniyersal daily consumption he regards as the least oppressiye yehicle of 
taxation. This system to be worked by means of a householder's grain, flour and 
bread company, with a capital of 5/. a house, paid by landlords for the perpetual 
endowment of their houses with a 5Z. share each, the tenant paying to his land- 
lord the interest on the 5Z. (49. 4c2. a year) in his rent for the hire of the share, 
by which payment he would become a bonft fide shareholder in the company. 
The directors — elected by the householders — are to purchase all grain grown in 
the United Kingdom at prices fixed by parliament, and all foreign grain by con- 
tracts with merchants. The company to guarantee to British growers such fixed 
prices from year to year as to enable them to bring into cultiyation all waste 
lands as the best means of reducing pauperism, and largely increasing the supply 
of grain and meat in this country. His pamphlet on Unlimited Manhood Suf- 
frage adyocates many of the points for which reformers of earlier days agitated in 
yain, e.g. the representation of eyeiy profession and trade, calling, and occu- 
pation in the United Kingdom, according to numbers and income, by paid 
representatiyes \ and that on TUKe^ national property, maintains that tithes 


ought to suffice for proTiding churches and ministers without suhsoriptions, &c., 
and that the education and charitable relief of the poor would be easily carried 
on bj the restitution of alienated tithes.

of S. James-the-less in Bethnal green, which after ten years he resigned, dying in

The second son, see supra, p. 7. 

In 1829 and 1830 he took pert in the public speeches, was appointed to a school 
exhibition, and elected in 1834 to a Somerset scholarship at S. John*s college, 
Cambridge. He took the degee of A.B. in 1838, and of A.M. in 1841, and was 
ordained by Dr. Allen, bishop of Ely, to the curacy of Gh-eat WUbraham, near 
Cambridge, of which his father was vicar. At the time of his death the fol- 
lowing short notice of his career appeared in the Man^ester Courier : 

** We have very recently recorded in our obituary the name of one belonging to 
a family still remembered by many in this neighbourhood. The Rev. William An- 
derton Smith, A.M., who died lately at Bath, second son of the late Rev. Jeremiah 
Smith, D.D., head master of Manchester school, and rector of St. Ann's, in this 
city, was an alumnus of our Grammar school, and of St. John's college, Cam- 
bridge, and was for many years — indeed until incapacitated by illness^ a zealous 
and devoted servant of Gt>d in the work of the ministry ; first at Great Wilbra- 
ham, a small family living in Cambridgeshire ; next at Alton Barnes, in Wilts., 
the scene of the late Archdeacon Hare's pastoral labours ; and last as chaplain 
to the Mineral Water hospital at Bath. In each successive sphere of ministe- 
rial duty he won the hearts of those entrusted to his care. There was in him a 
truly Christian tenderness and homeliness of feeling, which peculiarly fitted him 
to sympathise with his poorer brethren, and endeared him to all, as at home so 
in the parish or the hospital. He was a true-hearted English churchman, of the 
High Church school, and an elegant Latin scholar, particularly happy in the 
composition of Latin verse and epigram. He married, in 1845, Mary, the 
youngest daughter of the lato Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Bouldon Thompson, 
Bart., of Hartsboume Manor-place, Herts, one of Lord Nelson's distinguished 
captains. He has left a widow with five BurviyiDg children, the eldest a lieutenant 


in the Rojal hatj, to mourn the loss which they haye sustained, cheered, how- 
erer, and consoled by the patience and fortitude with which he hore a long illness 
occasioned by a shock receired in a railway collision about four years ago. He 
was in his 55th year, and is buried at Charlcombe, near Bath." 
He died at Bath on the 27th October 1870, aged 54. 

Some few of his school exercises were presenred by my father, from one of which the 
following yerses may be giyen as a specimen of his powers. The poem consists 
of nineteen stanzas, the subject is " Leonidas,*' and the date of the exercise 1834 : 

Facunda yirgo, Castalise potens, 
Cui grata semper carmina, qnsD ferunt 
Res Martis, aspires canenti 
Calliope, moyeasque plectra. 

Sedis PelasgsB limina Persicus 
Intrdrat hostis^ funera gcntibus 

Si yocis elatee grayentur 

Jussa sequi, minitatus ipsie. 

Terrore diro cetera Gnecia 
Statim stupescit. Sparta animosior 

Est ansa pendentem tyrannum 

Pectore sustinuisse firmo. 

# • • • 

Densos in hostes prosiluit ferox 
Spartes phalangis dux, yeluti ruit 

De monte oonyulsum supremo, 

Impete prsecipitante, saxum. 

Firm^ tyranno conseruit manum 
Lethale telum ut pectora trajicit, 

Interque mactatas cohortes 

Procubuit moribuudus heros. 

Bustumque surgit, cui nota yocibus 
Istis tenetur— "Die Lacedssmoni 

Nos jussa curantee in armis 

Pro patrift petiise mortem." 

Nor was he undistinguished as a writer of English yerse, as may be gathered from 
his share in the following yerses. It is necessary to insert both the sets of stanzas 
in order to explain the allusions in the second, which only are by this scholar : 



We rais'd no monumental grayestone there. 

Nor planted yews, nor any tree that weeps, 
Nor oar? 'd our grief io sacred ferses, where 
Our JohnTiTe sleeps. 


We did not note our Jolinuie*s birthdaj then. 

Or name his parents' names, or ought beside ; 
We did not even mention where or when 
Our Johnnie died. 

But in black letters, simply charactered, 

Upon a marble tablet, white and small. 
We graved one fond, familiar, precious word, 
And that is all. 

That word is, " Johnnie." And, around his tomb, 

A little space we planted garden-wise. 
That flow'rs may sweetly bud and sweetly bloom 
Where Johnnie lies. 

And here we come and sit, sitid talk for hours 

Of him whom Jesus took, as Jesus gave ; 
And trim the grass, and train the plants and flow'rs 
On Johnnie*s graye. 

And now we scarcely mourn — we seldom weep — 

Yea, rather joy ; because on Jesus' breast 
We know our Johnnie safely lies asleep. 
In perfect rest. 

God giye us all in Christ like slumber sweet ! 
And grant that soon on the eternal shore, 
We may at G^d's right hand our Johnnie meet 

To part no more ! J. J. D. 



Once more the Bell ! once more the open Grave ! 

She passed away, like a bright falling star! 
True earthly Love has now no power to save 
Johnnie's Mamma. 

Yet truer Love has siunmoned her away, 

To re-unite her to her Baby-boy, 
In happier homes, which are without decay — 
Without alloy. 

Now in one quiet resting-place they lie — 

'* Mamma and Johnnie" — still to memory dear : 
Sweet, yet mysterious, to the passers by 
These words appear ! 


Sweet ! for they show what holy Lore is here ; 

No empty, outward mockery of woe ! 
Mysterious ! the names of those so dear 
We may not know. 

But there is one, whose weary, aching heart 
Is still with keenest bitterness oppress — 
From wife and child so early called to part — 
God grant him rest ! 

God, in his boundless mercy grant, that he 

May their sweet lives his constant pattern make ; 
The mother's lore — the child's simplicity — 
For Jesus* sake. 

Then, in Jerusalem's all-golden street, 

Where saints and angels constantly adore, 
The Father, Mother, Baby-boy, shall meet 

To part no more. W. A. S. 

He would not unirequently throw off light imprampttu, of which this Trialoffue is 
a Tory fair specimen : 

Low Church. 
How I dread these innovations — 
Incense, vestments, adorations : 
Sure, these priests are Papists. 

Broad Church. 
Be not alarmed, protesting friend ; 
Quietly try yourself to mend : 
Perhaps they are merely apists. 

Siffh Church. 
Incense, vestments, adorations, 
These are simply renovations. 

Abhorred by all red-tapists : 
We love the Church, the House of God ; 
We tread the path our fathers trod ; 

And never will bo Papists. 

Mr. W. A. Smith was president of the anniversary meeting of old scholars in 1859, 
when Mr. Germon received, on retiring from the high mastership, a valuable

June' so. Joseph, SOU of John Ireland, dyer, Cheetham (13). 

He took part in the public speeches of 1829 and 1830, and in the latter year was 
nominated to a school exhibition and entered as a sizar at S. John's college, 
Cambridge. Whilst an undergraduate his father died, and he remored his name 
from the books of the college and returned to Manchester in order to cany on 
his father's business. He would probably haye distinguished himself at Cam- 
bridge had he remained to take his degrees, for whilst at school he showed much 
talent as a mathematician. He married a Miss Adshead, and in 1841 went out 
to Calcutta as mathematical master of the Hindoo college in that town, and in 
1842 was appointed principal of the Hindoo college at Dacca. Both these col- 
leges are under the East India company and not connected with the Society for 
the propagation of the gospel, and all instruction not purely secular is forbidden 
in them. Joseph Ireland became a victim to intemperance, and died in October 
1844, leaving his wife and two sons totally unprovided for. Through the exer- 
tions of the late archdeacon and Mrs. Dealtry about 250^. were collected for them, 
and the widow's passage to London paid and the luggage placed on board the 
"Northumberland," when she unexpectedly married Mr. Robert H. Halford, 
head master of the Hindoo college, Calcutta. One of the children died a few 
days after the marriage, and the balance of the money subscribed was invested 
for the benefit of the surviving child, Joseph Adshead Ireland, who died in the 
course of the year. By the archdeacon's desire the money was then paid over to 
Mr. and Mrs. Halford by my brother, Mr. James H. Smith, then resident in 
Calcutta, who had kindly interested himself in providing for the children of a 
former schoolfellow. 

*o 'William Dennis, son of H. B. Dennis, drysalter, Salford (11). 

He was in the high master's department for three or four years, and nominated to 
a school exhibition in 1833, and, I think, was entered at S. John's college, Cam- 
bridge, but did not graduate. I remember some beautifully written Hebrew 
exercises, in which language he had mode considerable progress whilst at school, 
being publicly shown to Dr. Calvert, the warden of the Collegiate church, and 
the visitor of the school, and to the trustees who were present at the public 
speech day of 1830.

Frederick, son of John Lingard, agent to the Old Quay company, October 11. 
Manchester (14). 

For his father, whose Christian name was Thomas not John, see BegitteTf yol. ii. 
p. 106. 

Frederick, the fifth and youngest sOn, bom in 181 1, was at school indus- 
trious and amiable, and in after life was highly distinguished for his musical 
attainments. His early death wss noticed in the Gentleman* 9 Magazine, 
and the following extract from a biographical sketch, which then appeared 
in that periodical giyes us all that can be desired to perpetuate his memory 
among the distinguished alumni of Manchester school : 

*' He belonged to a family in Lancashire of known worth and respectability. 
His father was for nearly thirty years the principal agent of the Mersey and 
Irwell Nayigation company. Frederick Lingard was destined for the profession 
of the law, but he yery early cTinoed a singular aptitude for music, and acquired 
a knowledge of that science almost intuitiyely, for he reoeiyed scarcely any assist- 
ance from masters. He manifested such a decided fondness for this noble art, 
and especially for church music, that his parents, though reluctantly, allowed 
him to follow the bent of his own mind. About the year 1835 he competed for, 
and accepted the situation of a Lay Yicar of the Durham Cathedral Choir, so 
long justly celebrated for musical proficiency, if it be not actually pre>eminent 
among the Cathedral Choirs of England. In that situation he remained to the 
close of his life. He had preyiously, for a period of two years, filled the office 
of Organist and Choirmaster in S. G-eorge's Church, Hulme, of which his bro- 
ther, the Rey. Joshua Lingard, M.A., was then Incumbent, a learned and zealous 
Clei^man, strict and conscientious in days of laxity in his own conformity to 
the discipline of the English Church. Mr. Frederick Lingard proyed a most 
yaJuable acquisition to the Choir of Durham, not only on account of his musical 
genius and attainments, which were of the highest order, and were eyer deyoted 
with praiseworthy zeal and assiduity to the promotion of Ecclesiastical music — 
a cause which he had much at heart. His book of Anliphonal Chants, which 
he published about 1843, contains chants in the Ecclesiastical style of Palestrina 
and Bird, for the Psalter as ordered at morning and eyening prayer ; and the 
contents were composed and arranged by himself, with an accompaniment for 


organ or pianoforte. This bold and saoceasful undertaking, which was conoeiTed 
and executed in the true feeling and spirit of the old authors of our church 
music, brought him considerable reputation. Yet his ambition aimed no &rther 
than to contribute to the restoration, as a general practice, of antiphonal 
chanting, instead of the familiar and miserable Tulgarisms of psalms "done 
into English metre." He also published A aeries of Anthem* appropriated to 
all the Feasts that are to be observed in the Church of England throughout the 
year, the music being adapted from the sacred works of Hajdn, Mozart, 
Beethoven, &c., and arranged in score with accompaniments. He also wrote 
many anthems and other Ecclesiastical compositions. His chants and anthems 
were frequently selected for Durham Cathedral. All these his works testify 
that he deserved well of the Church, and they made his career honourable and 
full of hope. He wrote also several songs, duets and other compositions in 
secular music, some of which were published and are very pleasing. All his 
compositions, ecclesiastical and secular, manifest the high order of his musical 
mind. He was, in short, not only a very fine performer, but likewise a sound 
musician, and possessed a matured taste in music. His good education, general 
acquirements and gentlemanly conduct and demeanour, rendered him at once an 
instructive and agreeable companion ; whilst bis estimable character and amiable 
disposition ripened into friendship those feelings of respect and admiration 
which his musical accomplishments never failed to attract from persons of 
taste and refinement. And, above all, he was graced with a rare humility."

Scptemb.19. Robert, son of Thomas Sowler, bookseller, Manchester (10). 

For a notice of his father, see EeffUter, toL ii. pp. 25 1-254. 
Of this scholar the following notioe appeared in the MancheHer Courier at the 
time of his death, which occurred on the 23rd April 1871 : 

*' In oar ohituaiy in jesterdaj's Courier it was our sad and painful task to hare to 
record the death of Robert S. Sowler, esq., Q.O., who for a very large portion of 
his life was intimately connected with this journal. By his decease the oonser- 
Tatire party has lost one of its warmest and most consistent supporters and expo- 
nents, and the Church one of the most faithful of her sons. The late Mr. Sowler 
was bom on September 19th, 1815, and was the eldest son of Thomas Sowler, esq., 
the founder of the Manchester Courier, and who was himself from strong con- 
yiction a thorough Church-and-king man. Mr. Sowler, Q.C., received the greater 
part of his education at the Manchester free grammar school at the time when 
the rev. Jeremiah Smith, D.D., occupied the chair of high master. He was for 
some time attached to the office of his father's newspaper, but having a strong 
inclination for the pursuit of the law, he entered at the Middle temple [in Mi- 
chaelmas term, 1838], and was called to the bar at Michaelmas term, 1842. Mr. 
Sowler, electing to practise in his native city, joined the Northern circuit, and at 
the same time undertook the editorship of the Courierj then a weekly joumaL 
Prior to and at this time political feeling ran veiy high, and great excitement 
prevailed on the various topics of the day. Mr. Sowler having naturally a fine 
voice, high logical training, a ready wit, and the gift of much natural eloquence, 
soon took a prominent position in the various conservative meetings that were 
held in and around Manchester. At the same time, from his kindly and tho- 
roughly honourable feelings, he always carefully avoided anything approaching 
to a personal attack on his opponents. Being held in much estimation for his 
valuable qualities and his powers as an orator, his aid was eagerly sought by and 
readily accorded to his fellow-workers in the conservative cause. At almost all 
the great gatherings of the party his presence was invited, and more particularly 
did he devote himself to the institution and development of the numerous 
operative conservative and constitutional societies, which at that time were first 
formed at his suggestion, and which then proved, and have subsequently been 
found, BO valuable to the cause. In fact, to address the working men was a 
pleasure to him up to the latest period of his appearing at public meetings. His 
several printed addresses to the operatives had also at the time a very extended 
circulation, and exeroiMd no little influence in assisting to initiate and develop 
the movement which led to placing the reins of office in the hands of the late sir 
Robert Feel, with so large a majority at his back, in the year 1841, previously to 
the repeal of the com laws. To serve the constitutional cause Mr. Sowler con- 
sidered no trouble too great. For nearly twenty-eight years he continued to 
write the principal editorial articles in the Manchester Courier, and was con- 
nected with the paper until 1867, when his professional engagements as a barris* 
ter demanded the whole of his time. 
" Mr. Sowler met with much success at the bar at an earlier period than is usually 


the good fortune of janior advocates. His tact in his treatment of the oasea 
entnuted to him and the ability he diaplayed, soon gained for him an increasing 
and lucratire practice. As an adTocate he was earnest and eloquent, and to these 
qualities, combined with a sound and ready judgment, may be attributed the 
results which rewarded his exertions ; and on more than one occasion the pre- 
siding judges complimented him upon the mode in which he conducted his 
business. At the summer assizes in 1858 he was called within the bar of the 
county palatine of Lancaster, and in July 1866 was made fuU queen's counsel, 
and was presented at the levke held by the prince of Wales for her majesty in 
the early part of 1867. At the special assize, held in this city in October 1867, 
he was one of the counsel for the prosecution in the Fenian trials. For several 
years he acted as judge for the Salford county court circuit, as deputy for the 
late Mr. Temple, Q.C., and more recently the whole of the duties were under- 
taken by him. To his great anxiety to perform those duties so as not to incon- 
venience the suitors, his death may in some measure if not mainly be attributed. 
About twelve months ago he met with a serious accident, and before his strength 
was fully re-established he resumed the office he bad undertaken, and it was at 
the close of one of the sittings that he succumbed to the disease which eventually 
proved fatal. 

" In private life Mr. Bowler's genial and kindly disposition was ever apparent. 
Possessed of considerable conversational powers, an inexhaustible fund of anec- 
dote and a shrewd sense of humour, his company was always most warmly 
welcomed, whilst to serve his friends no trouble or exertion were too great to be 
undertaken by him. 

" Mr. Sowler married his cousin, Frances Bowler, on February 3rd, 1 845, who is 
left to mourn bis loss. They had no &mily. Of late years the deceased gentle- 
man had passed such leisure time as he had at command at his residence, Sawrey 
Knotts, Windermere, and was largely instrumental in the erection of a church 
in the immediate vicinity. His death occurred on Sunday evening last at 
Clarkshill, Stand, near Manchester, the residence of his sister-in-law, Mrs. Mac- 
kenzie, where he was staying at the time of his illness, which was of three 
months' duration." 
Mr. Robert Scarr Sowler was a man of great industry. In addition to bis editorial 
labours as connected for so many years with the Manchester Courier^ he was the 
editor of various articles which appeared in JBlaekwood^Sf I^tuer^e, the Dublin 
UniversUy, and the Monthly magazines. Those on the Anti-oom law league, in 
1842 and 1843, attracted much notice. Among other productions of his pen 
may be enumerated : 

*'Animal Magnetism" and " Neurhypnotism.'* Two articles in the Monthly 
Magazine in 1844 and 1845. 

*' The Law of Marriage." In the same magazine 1842. Against lord Francis 
Egerton's bill for legalizing marriage with a deceased wife's sister. 

The article "Manchester" in McCuUoch's Oeographical^ Statistical, and

29 Henry Murray, son of William Scott, deceased, Edinburgh (16). 

Henry Murray Scott, son of William Scott, esq., reoeiyer-general of cnstoms in the 
Isle of Man, was at Westminster school in early life, and removed in consequence 
of bad health. After a sojourn in Cheshire for some months he became conra- 
lesoent and was placed at Manchester school. He was distinguished for his 
proficiency in classical literature and Latin verse, and many of his jurenile 
poetical attempts in the yemacular tongue were not without merit. He had 
been intended for holy orders, but his inclinations leading him to the choice of a 
military life, he obtained a commission in the 83rd regiment. He died at the 
early age of 22, on the 3rd October 1832, and was buried at Kirk Braddan, near 
Douglas, in the Isle of Man. He was nearly related to the house of Athol, his 
mother (who had married for her second husband Dr. Hibbert Ware, the author 
of vols. i. and ii in the B[istory of the FoundaHons in Manchester), being a 
daughter of lord Henry Murray, and niece of John, the fourth duke of Athol. 

Fei>ruary6. Johu, SOU of Johu Wood, csq., Hadficld, Derbyshire (11). 

The only son of John Wood, of Thorndiffe hall, in the county of Chester, esq., 
who married the daughter of Thomas Hadfield, esq., and bom in 18 15. On 
leaving school towards the end of 1832 he was articled to Mr. Brackenbury, 
solicitor, of Manchester, and subsequently studied with the yiew of practising at 
the bar. Mr. Wood is now resident at Arden, near Stockport, and is an acting 
magistrate of the counties of Chester, Derby and Lancaster, and unmarried. 

6. Henry, son of the late Richard Johnson, coal master, Sfc. Helens (14). 
6. Henry, son of Johu Runcorn, cotton spinner, Salford (14). 
6. Richard, son of Richard Edleston, attorney, Nantwich (10). 

The father died on the ist October 1839. 


Richard Cfaambers Bdleston, the eldest of four sons admitted to the school, was 
bom in September 1816, and practised as a solicitor at Nantwioh, as his father 
and grandfather did before him, holding yarious appointments, such as clerk to 
the commissioners of taxes, the local board of health, the trustees of turnpike 
roads, &o. He was passionately fond of sports of the field, and had more than 
a local reputation as an authority on matters connected with coursing. 

At the time of his death he was thus referred to in the pages of The Held news- 

** Another of the earliest supporters of public coursing has just left us, in the 
person of Richard Chambers Edleston, of Kantwich, Cheshire. A search 
through " Thacker " wiU discoyer him as a runner of matches with sir James 
Boswell and the renowned Harry Miller, long before most of the present genera- 
tion of coursers had seen a hare killed — although he was only 55 when he died. 
He first achieyed renown as the breeder of Scythian, whose progeny were success- 
ful for many years oyer the Lancashire ditches ; but the blood was of late years 
supplanted by that of Judge, Bedlamite, and the north country strains which 
hafe lately come into fayour. From 1850 to i860, or thereabouts, he did little 
in support of the leash, and still more recently he became prominent solely as 
the defendant in the celebrated Skipaway case, which had been run many years 
preyiously, and in which he was, we think, somewhat hardly used. Mr. 
Edleston was the founder of the Three Counties Union club, and It was at the 
September meeting in the present year that we noticed the great change in his 
appearance ; but although then yery ill, his loye for the sport saw him seated 
both days on the box of his cab, and most enthusiastio about his dog-puppy, 
Monks Coppenhall, a wonderfully fine dog weighing something like 76 lbs. 
This dog won two courses, and it was his owner's intention to haye run him for 
the Waterloo cup, for which this year he had a nomination. Like most 
enthusiasts, he had many enemies as well as friends, but a warmer and more 
perseyering supporter no man need desire." 

He died, unmarried, on the i8th Noyember 1^71, and was buried at Church-Cop« 
penhall in the family yault. 

At the time of the potato disease he introduced into the part of the country where 
he liyed a new mode of planting this yaluable yegetable, and his plan met with 
so much fayour that he was presented with a piece of plate and purse of gold 
by his friends for the time and trouble which he had bestowed upon the subject. 
Some letters from him on this subject, addressed to the lord-lieutenant of the 
county, appeared in the Chester Beeord newspaper of 186 1 and i86a. 

I find lir. R. C. Edleston*s name as present at the anniyersaiy meeting of old 
scholars in 185a.

6. Arthur, son of John Pooley, cotton spinner, Hulrae (11). 

Ho was a cotton spinner, and died unmarried at Combrook in 1853, aged 38, and 
was buried at S. John's church, Manchester. 

6. Ralph, son of James Ains worth, surgeon, Manchester (15). 

The only son of James Ains worth, for many years one of the surgeons of the Man- 
chester rojal infirmary, for whom see EegiaUr^ toI. ii. pp. 202-204. 

Ralph Fawsett Ainsworth on learing school studied for the same profession of 
which his father was so distinguised a member, and took the degree of M.D. at 
Berlin in 1836. He became a member of the Royal college of surgeons, Eng- 
land, in 1837, and in 1839 a fellow of the Royal college of physicians, Edinburgh. 
Dr. Ainsworth, who has held various appointments connected with the medical 
institutions of Manchester, as well as that of lecturer at the Pine street school of 
medicine, is now the senior physician to the Manchester royal infirmary. He 
frequently attended the anniversary meetings of the old scholafs, and was presi- 
dent of that held in 1 840. [He has resided for many years at Cliff point. Lower 
Broughton, where his choice library and exquisite orchids, of which beautiful 
tribe he has been one of the most successful cultivators, are always a great 
source of enjoyment to his visitors and friends. C] 

6. John, son of John Bennet, surgeon. Chapel-en- le-Frith (14). 

The father of this scholar was surgeon to lord Wilton's regiment of royal Lanca- 
shire volunteers, and after the regiment was disbanded commenced practice at 
Stodhart lodge, Chapel-en-le-Frith, and was very successful both in a lucrative and 
professional point of view. His son John, elected member of the Boyal college 
of surgeons, London, in 1837, has succeeded him at the same place, and with the 
same good results. He married a Miss Gaskell of Liverpool, a great*niece of the 
rev. Thomas Gaskell, for whom see Begitter^ vol. ii. p. 53, by whom ho has one 

6. Edward, son of John Bennet, surgeon, Chapel-en-le-Frith (12). 

Edward Bennett, the younger brother, who received the degree of M.D. at the 
university of S. Andrew's in 1839, and became an extra licentiate of the Boyal 
college of physicians, London, in 1 840, was for some time in practice at Mac< 
clesfield, holding public appointments connected with the town. He is now in 
practice at New Brighton, near Liverpool, is married, and has several children. 


Isaac^ son of Abraham Franklin^ jeweller^ Manchester (14). February 10. 

Isaac Abraham Franklin, elected member of the Royal college of surgeons, Eng- 
land, 1835, is now in practice as a surgeon in Manchester. Mr. Franklin speaks 
with gratitude of the kindness shown to him bj Mr. Johnson, one of the assist- 
ant masters, for whom see supra, p. 164, in one of whose classes he was placed. 
Being of the Hebrew faith, he was unable to attend the school on Saturdays, and 
Mr. Johnson, seeing him to be a painstaking boy, spontaneously offered to supply 
the lost lessons at his house on the erenings of that day, and did so, so long as 
Franklin remained with him, refusing any fee or remuneration. He speaks also 
of the gentlemanly feeling of the senior boys, who, finding that he was persecuted 
by some of his school fellows on account of his religion, took him under their 
protection, and effectually put a stop to the ill<treatment which he had for some 
time patiently endured. 

Mr. Franklin has also brought back to my redollection how the grammar school 
boys were frequently getting into broils with those who worked at the factories 
and at a rope walk not far from the Irk. These reached their climax one erent- 
fnl day, when a regular pitched battle ensued between the two contending armies. 
The affair had been regularly organized, sticks and wooden swords provided, and 
a day fixed for the fight. The field of the engagement was the site now occu- 
pied by the Lancashire and Yorkshire railway station, near to the Irk. Blows 
of no tender kind were exchanged, and resulted in serious injury to many on 
both sides. The masters took the matter up, and put a stop to any further en-

William, son of Thomas Hollins, merchant, Cheetham Hill (14). March 16. 

This scholar and his elder brother Thomas, whose name comes next in the Setter, 
and a younger brother, Michael Daintry (see anno 1828), were sons of Thomas 
Hollins, merchant, who married Sarah, eldest daughter of William Clegg, of 
Westwood house, Oldham, and sister of Alfred and Charles Clegg, for whom 


Bee supra f p. 103, and Addenda to thia Tolume. He was the onlj son of Samuel 
Hollins, of Shelton hall, Hanlej, in the county of Stafford, who married a 
daughter of Michael Daintrj, banker, of Bode, near Macclesfield, for mention of 
whom see RegUier, toI. i. p. 186. Samuel Hollins, whose elder brothers were 
bankers at Newcastle-under-Ljme, was a large manufacturer of earthenware at 
Hanlej, and the first who introduced china ware into the Staffordshire potteries. 
He had fiTe daughters, of whom the third married the late well-known Mr. 
Herbert Minton, of Stoke-upon-Trent, but s.p. 
William HoUins, bom on the 14th Maj 18 13, was for many years engaged in Man-

March 16. Thomas^ son of Thomas Hollins, merchant, Cheetham Hill (15). 

Thomas Hollins was bom on the. 13th December 181 1. He was educated for the 
medical profession, and was a pupil of the late Mr. W. B. Whatton, but nerer 
practised in consequence of bad health. He died, unmarried, in March 1854. 

*6. John, son of John Walker, corn dealer, Manchester (8). 
x6. Edward, son of the late Thomas Lees, cotton merchant, Man- 
chester (12). 
»6 William, son of John Gaistor, esq., Manchester (14). 

The father is wrongly described as esquire. He was, I belieye, a miller, canying 
on his trade at the upper mill in Long Millgate, near Scotland bridge, which 
crosses the rirer Irk. 
William Yates Caistor became an attorney, and was the senior partner in the firm 
. of Caistor and Famworth, Princess street, Manchester. He afterwards went to 
Westminster, where he practised as a parliamentary agent, principally in railway 
business, in partnership with Mr. James Wheeler. In the law list of 1863 he 
appears again among the Manchester solicitors. He was twice married; his 
second wife being a sister of Mr. Serjeant Wheeler (for whom see mproy p. 102), 
who gave him, I believe, the office of registrar of the Salford hundred court of 
record, of which court Mr. Wheeler was judge. Mr. Caistor died soon after. 

16, Henry, son of Henry Gough, agent, Ashton (15). 

Henry Gh>ugh, son of Henry and Agnes Gough, formerly of Manchester, and 
nephew of Charles Gough of Manchester, who perished on the mountain Hel- 
rellyn in the spring of the year 1805, so beautifully described in yerse by sir 
Walter Scott, was bom at Kirkby Stephen, Westmoreland, on the loth April 
18 12. Whilst at school he took part in the public speech days of 1829 and 
1830. At the dose of the latter year he was elected to a scholarship on the old 
foundation of Queen's college, Oxford, when he graduated B.A. on the 4th June 
1834 (having been placed in the first class in mathematical and in the third 
class in dassical honours at the prerious Easter examination) and M.A. on 
the Z5th January 1838. He receiyed from the college a present of books in 


recognition of the distinction which he had gained in the schools. On leaving 
Oxford he became mathematical and second master in the school of the rev. B. 
Wickham, at Twyford, where bo^s were prepared for Winchester. Whilst there 
he was ordained deacon in 1837, and assisted Mr. Wickham (now archdeacon of 
S. Asaph) at a church in the neighbourhood. At the end of 1 840 he remored 
to Penzance, and was assistant curate of the rey. £. Shattleworth, being ordained 
priest in that year by Dr. H. Phillpotts, bishop of Exeter. In 1842 the proTost 
and fellows of his college offered him, and he accepted, the second mastership of 
S. Bees grammar school, Cumberland, which he resigned in the following year 
on being appointed to the post of head master of the Cathedral grammar school, 
Carlisle. The latter school he conducted with great success for six years, re- 
signing it in 1849 and remoring to Brough, where he took private pupils. 
Whilst at Carlisle he succeeded to a fellowship at Queen's college, and in 1856 
to the rectory of Charlton-on-Otmoor, which is in the gift of that college, and 
married on the 24th February Maria Josephine, younger daughter of the late 
Joseph Qillbanks, esq., of Whiteficld house, Cumberland. His health, which 
had been failing for some time past, now became so critical, that by the adrice 
of Dr. Adand he sailed for Madeira in 1859, accompanied by his wife and little 
boy. . Here he remained until the summer of 1861, returning to England in 
apparently much improved health. He spent the following winter in Guernsey, 
but grew weaker as the next spring came on, and sank under an attack of 
hoemorrhage, probably brought on by anxiety and grief at the death of his only 
surviving son, Herbert Henry, who was taken away on the 4th April 1862, his 
own death following on the 14th of the month. They were interred together 
on Easter Eve (19th April) in the churchyard at Charlton-on-Otmoor. One 
daughter survives, bom at Madeira on the 28th March i860. 
He was a man of varied and extensive reading, an accurate scholar, an able 
instructor, active in his exertions for the welfare of his pariah until incapacitated 
by sickness, and using for good the influence which he possessed. Though 
somewhat reserved with others, he had a warm heart for those who knew him 
well. He was present at the jubilee meeting of old scholars in 1831. 

Henry, son of Henry Moult^ cotton merchant^ Pendleton (14). March*^a6. 

Henry Thomeley Moult, bom at the Crescent, Salford, on the i6th April 18 13, 
died at Philadelphia on the 2nd January 1854. 

He was engaged in the cotton trade, as a buyer of cotton whilst growing, and for 
this purpose, I am told, crossed the Atlantic in five and thirty voyages. During 
one of his visits to America, he was thrown out of the vehicle in which he was 
riding, and received severe injury to the spine, from which he never completely

a long illness at the age of 19, on the loth September 1834. He was buried aft 
S. Mary's, Edge hill, Liyerpool. 

August I. George^ son of George Dean, publican^ Deansgate (11). 

The father kept the Bosh inn, in Deansgate, where the auniyersary dinners of the 
old scholars were held at one time. About 1840 he went into the leather 
trade under the name of George Dean and Co., but, I think, was not suocessfuL 

I. John^ son of Joseph Armitage, merchant^ Mills-bridge^ Hudders-

daughter of Mr. Thomas Calrow, Bury, and had issue three children. He held a 
commission during ten years as captain in the Second West York yeomanry 
cavalry, and subsequently resided at Forest hill, London, where he died on the 
9th September 1867, aged 50. 

Another brother, James, the youngest, was shot down by the natiyes in ambush 
and afterwards barbarously murdered on the Waikato rirer, New Zealand, on 
the 7th September 1863. He was resident police magistrate, and serving in a 
volunteer regiment at the time of the rebellion.

I. Charies, son of Thomas Pickford, carrier, Manchester (11). 

The father was the head of the well-known firm of Pickford and Co., carriers, 
and died in 1846, and was buried at Cheltenham. He had four sons. Charles 
Hampden, the third and now eldest surviving son, was for a short time 
engaged in business with his father, and about 1840 went to India as part- 
ner in a merchant's house at Calcutta, where he resided many years and married 
in June 1852, and has eight children. Since i860 he has been in England, 
though connected with the same business, and is now resident at the Firs, Old 
Charlton, Kent. 

I. Robert, son of James Leech, auctioneer, Manchester (10).* 

The father of this scholar was educated at the school, but his name is not found in 
the Register, though others of the family are there. He was a woollen dyer and 
served the office of boroughreeve of Salford in 1822, and a frequent attendant at 
the meetings of the old scholars. He lived beyond his means, and subsequently 
practised as an auctioneer. 

I- Robert, son of Samuel Shaw, major in the Bengal artillery (13). 

In the seventh volume of Blacktoood's Magazine (April 1820) will be found 
" Stanzas written upon Robert, the son of Captain S. Shaw, of the royal artil- 
lery, now a resident in the East Indies, a child 5 years of age." After leaving 


the grammar school Robert Shaw, it is said, entered the same serrice as his 
father, and attained rank in it. It is not known whether he is still linng.

John, son of Thomas Sharp, ironmonger, Busholme (13). i. 

Henry, son of Thomas Newcome, rector of Shenley, Hertford- i.

There is a rerj amusing notice of the Newcome family in the introduction to the 
first Yolume of The Autobiography of Henry Newcome^ M.A. (toI. xxTi. Chetham 
society's publications), written by the father of tliis scholar, who was a lineal 
descendant of the first minister of the Presbyterian meeting house in Cross 
street, Manchester, and the possessor of the Diary and Autohioyraphy of his 
ancestor, edited by Mr. Thomas Heywood and Dr. Parkinson. 

His son, Heniy Justinian, one of a numerous family, graduated B.A. of Trinity 
college, Oxford, on the 9th No?ember 1837, and was ordained deacon in .1838 
by Dr. Monk, bishop of Gloucester and Bristol, and priest in 1841 by Dr. Kaye, 
bbhop of Lincoln. He succeeded his father, who died in 1849, as rector of 
Shenley, and holds that benefice at the present time, being ** the ninth in direct 
continuous line of beneficed clerks from the Beformation to the present time" in 
the Newcome family. (See introduction to The Autobiography , p. xx.)

the town council for the Exchange ward. The name occurs twice in the 
records of the anniyersary meetings. 

Thomas, son of the late Benjamin Chaffers, corn merchant. Liver- >• 

pool (15). 

He took part in the public speeches from 1827 to 1830, and was elected a 
Somerset scholar of Brasenose college, Oxford, going into residence towards 
the close of 183 1. He had previously been a competitor for the Lancashire 
scholarship at Corpus Christi college, when the successful candidate was John 
Wilson, afterwards second master of Manchester school, whom he surpassed in 
honours at the final examination in the schools. He was nominated to an Hul. 
mian exhibition in 1834, and placed in the first class in Lit. Hum. at the Easter 
examination of the next year ; one of his fire colleagues in the same honour 
being Edward Cardwell of Balliol, now secretary of state for the war department. 
His degrees bear date as follows: B.A. on the 27th May 1835, M.A. on the 17th 
May 1837. Having been elected to a fellowship, and having had for some little 
time charge of S. John's church, Bethnal Green, London, he returned to Oxford 
on being appointed tutor. Here he served the office of junior proctor in 1846, 
of public examiner in 1854 and 1856, and held the rice-principalship of th^ 


college from 1844 to 1858. He died on the 6th June i860, aged 47, at Marton, 
whither he retired on leaving Oxford, and of which his friend, the ter. John 
Darcey (for whose father see Seffitter, toI. ii. p. 146), was incumbent, and is 
there buried. A simple gravestone marks the place where he rests. 
Thomas Chaffers was a man of brilliant talents and ready wit, and in his earlier 
official days did the college good service as tutor and vioe-principal. He would 
probably have risen to a yet higher position, had he been, what not all men are, 
master of himself. To his Oxford friends he was the model of hospitality. He 
occasionally joined his old school fellows at the anniversary festivals, and was 
appointed president for the year 1841. The last occasion on which he was 
present was the year 1858, when there was a large assembly of graduates and 
other former scholars to meet Dr. Gilbert, the late venerable bishop of Chichester, 
for whom see Register ^ vol. ii. p. 221. 

Dccemb. 1. Edward, son of the late Edward Ball, builder, Prescot {14).

in the high master's department for a considerable time before leaving. After 
a long connection with the old banking firm of William Jones, Loyd and Co., 
and Loyd, Entwisle and Co., Manchester, he is now the manager of the Wigau 
branch of the Manchester and Liverpool district bank, in which the bank of 
Loyd, Entwisle and Co. was merged in 1863. Mr. C. Rhodes, who was married 
on the loth April 1858 and has seven children, has occasionally attended the 
meetings of the old scholars, and is not unknown as the author of various 
articles on religious, political and social subjects which have from time to time 
appeared in the publications of the day, as well as of some pleasing poetry; 
one of the latest specimens of his poetical powers being some verses to the 
memory of his former master, Dr. Elsdale.

His health failed and he resigned his situation. He went to Rugbj to establish 
gas works there, but his health becoming worse he removed to Jersey where he 
died on the 22nd September 1854. His body was brought to England and he 
was buried at KensaU Q-reen cemeteiy, London. 

Apru Arthur Bedford, son of Robert Charles Orlebar, esq., Husborne 

Crawley, Bedfordshire (17). 

This scholar, the second son of Robert Charles Orlebar, esq., of Husborne Crawley, 
and grandson of Richard Orlebar, esq., of Hinwick house, both in the county 
of Bedford, was born on the nth June 18 10, and admitted from the school as 
a commoner to S. John's college, Oxford, and elected to an open scholarship 
on Uie 4th May 1830 at Lincoln college, where he gained a place in the first 
class in mathematics, and in the third class in classical honours at the public 
examination for the B.A. degree, at Michaelmas 1832, taking that degree on 
the 22nd ^OTcmber. He graduated M.A. on the 17 th Noyember 1842. 
Mr. Orlebar, who went out to India, and was for some years professor of 
astronomy at the Elpliiustone college, Bombay, but in consequence of illness 
obliged to resign, married his cousin, Eliza Hannah, fourth daughter of Richard 
Orlebar, esq., of Hinwick house, and had issue. (See Burke's Landed G^entry, 
1863.) He subsequently went to Australia, where he was government inspector 
of schools, and died at Melbourne on the iith June 1866, aged 56, his wife 
having died there ten years preyiously. He is buried in the cemetery at S. 
Kilda, near Melbourne. He is the author of a book entitled Orlehar*9 Course of

Teoman'* (see Parish Begister)^ took part in the public speeches of 1829 and 



1830, and was an exhibitioner of the school. He was elected to a scholarship 
at Queen's college, Oxford (though ho did not succeed to a fellowship), 
and graduated B.A. on the 22nd Jane 1837, not t&king his M.A. degree 
until 1853. Having been ordained deacon and priest in 1840 and 1841 bj 
Dr. H. Percy, bishop of Carlisle, he was presented in 1843 to the rectory 
of the church of the Holj Trinity, Hulme, Manchester, which had been 
recently built and endowed by the late Miss Atherton, of Kersall cell, and 
held the same until 1858, when he became rector of the small parish of 
Newton, near Folkingham, Lincolnshire, where he is now living. He is the

James Dickson Dixon, bom on the 14th January 18 15, the elder of the two sons 
of William Dixon, who resided at Eyerton, Liverpool (for mention of whom see 
suprOf p. 16), had as a little child a remarkable escape from death. In the great 
storm of the 5th December 1822 a chimney was blown down at his father's 
house, which fell on the nursery where the children were sleeping. That part 
of the room in which his sisters slept was struck by it and carried through the 
ceiling of the room below, and they were killed ; whilst the bed in which he 
and his younger brother slept was untouched. It rested on a beam, when the 
man-servant rescued them only some few minutes before the entire floor fell 

James D. Dixon took part in the speech day of 1830, was admitted a commoner of 





Brasenose college, Oxford, at the close of 1833, and graduated B.A. on the i7ih

to the perpetual curacy of Bramley, near Leeds. This he resigned in 1859 in 
consequence of continued bad health, suffering from epileptic fits, and went 
to reside at Birkenhead, where he died, at the age of 48, on the 25 th June 1863, 
and was buried in the churchyard of Bebington, leaving a widow and eight 
children. There is a stone cross over his graye. He receiyed a yery gratifying 
address from his parishioners at Bramley on his resignation of the benefice.

the school in 1833 became a pupil of the late Mr. W. B. Whatton, and obtained 



his diploma as surgeon in 1838. In the same year his unde, Mr. Herheri 
Minton (who huilt and endowed a beautiful church at HartshiU, in the parish 
of Stoke, the interior of which was destroyed by fire in 1872), took him into 
partnership as a manufacturer of china and earthenware, at Stoke- upon-Trent. 
In 1840 they established, under the firm of Minton, Hollins and Co., the en- 
caustic tile and mosaic manufactozy which has since attained such great cele-

George Henry, son of Robert McGill, pawnbroker, Manchester (10). 

George Henrj McGill passed through the whole of the school, from Mr. Dallas* 
department to the senior class of the high master. He was appointed to one of 
the school exhibitions, elected a Somerset scholar at Brasenose college, Oxford, 
in Michaelmas 1837, and graduated B.A. on the 21st May 1841, and M.A. on 
the 15th May 1844. Haying served the curacy of S. Thomas's, Stockport, to 
which he was ordained deacon and priest in 1841-a, by Dr. Sumner, bishop of 
Chester, and that of Edale in Derbyshire in 1843-5 (where he married a daughter 
of Mr. John Champion in that place) and of Hilgay, Norfolk, for one year, he 
was presented by lord chancellor Lyndhurst to the vicarage of Stoke Ferry, in 
the latter county, where he rebuilt ibe church, and took an active part in the 
proceedings of the Norfolk archteological society. By Brasenose college he was 
presented in 1854 to the perpetual curacy of Christ church, in the parish of S. 
George-in-the-East, London, which he held until 1868, when, on the patronage 
of the marquis of Westminster, he succeeded to the rectory of Bangor Mona- 
chorum, in the county of Flint. Here he has restored the chancel of the church, 
and rebuilt the rectory house, the porch of which bears the following hospitable 
inscription, " Utinam veris hanc amicis impleam." A new school-room has also 
been built at Byton, within the parish, and licensed for Divine service, which 
has been the means of rescuing from dissent many of his flock, and of closing the 
meeting house erected there. 

During his incumbency of Christ church, S. Gheorge's-in-the-East, Mr. McGill took 
great interest in the poor-rato question, as it affected the London parishes, de- 
siring that the whole of the metropolis should be equally charged with the sup- 
port of the poor, and was the author of several letters which appeared in the 
IHmes newspaper under the signature of " An East End Incumbent ; " and the 
result has been, that the whole of the salaries of the officers, the education of the 
pauper children, the care of the lunatics and those afflicted with fever and small- 
pox — about one-third of the whole charge — has been equalized. In recognition 
of his persevering exertions, and of the success with which they were crowned, 
Mr. McGill received a valuable present of plate in 1867 from the East-end 


latepajers. He b the author of some occasional sermoiiB and papers on 
arohieological subjects.

Thomas, son of Thomas Sowler, bookseller^ Manchester (10). 

For the father of this scholar see Begister^ toI. ii. p. 25 1, and for his eldest brother, 
Robert Scarr, see tupra, p. 20a. 

Thomas Sowler, from the time when he left school, has been connected with the 
Manchester Courier both in its literary and commercial departments. The 
Courier alone is now carried on at the old house in S. Ann's square, the book- 
selling business having been giyen up hy the sons soon after their father's death. 
This the only surriying son is now the sole proprietor of that widely circulating 
and inQuential paper, and may be regarded also as its editor, exercising a general 
superrision oyer the yorious departments connected with it. 

Mr. Thomas Sowler has taken an actiye part in the yolunteer moyement of recent 
years, being now lieutenant-colonel of the 19th Lancashire (Manchester) artillery, 
having risen from the rank of gunner to that of commanding officer of the corps. 
He succeeded Mr. Edmund Buckley as president of that ancient institution, 
John Shaw's club, for mention of which see Register^ yol. i. p. 49, and yol. ii. 
pp. 194, 257, 282 ; was secretary of the Manchest-er Natural History society, 
until the museum was handed oyer to Owens college ; and in conjunction with 
Mr. James Crossley (the president of the Chetham society), the late bishop of 
Manchester and others, originated and organized the Manchester free library, 
one of the first free libraries in England of modem date — for ik. must neyer 
be forgotten that Manchester had its free library at Chetham's hospital two 
hundred years ago. 

True to the conseryatiye principles which haye distinguished all the members of 
the family connected with the school, Mr. Thomas Sowler was from its com- 
mencement the honoi*ary secretary of the Church defence association of Man- 
chester, now merged in the larger Northern association. 

He married on the 25th July 1866, at the cathedral, Emily, eldest daughter of 
the late Mr. James Tates, bleacher, of Manchester, by whom he has three sons, 
his only daughter haying died last year. 

He was appointed y ice-president of the anniyersary meeting of old scholars in 1857, 
as colleague to Mr. Thomas de Quincey. 

John, son of Thomas Sowler^ bookseller, Manchester (8). 

John Sowler was the third and youngest son, and, like his father and brothers, 
warmly attached to the school and its masters. It was not a yery rare occur- 
rence to see them all together at the anniyersary meetings of the old scholars. 
His death followed soon after that of the eldest sou, and his actiye and useful 
life was thus noticed in the Manchetter Courier of June 17 th, 187 1 : 

"It is scarcely two months since we had to record the death of Mr. Sowler, Q.O., 
and it is now our yery painful duty to record that of his brother, Mr. John Sowler, 

1 8x9 


one of the proprietors of the Manehetter Courier. For the last three months he 
had not been quite well, and the death of his brother deeply affected him. About 
three weeks ago he went to London on business, and caught cold on the way. 
Whilst in London he became so much worse that he had to make his visit shorter 
in consequence, and return to his residence at Bowdon, where he was attacked 
with rheumatic ferer, under which he sank on Thursday night [15th June 1871]. 
at the age of 5 1 years. 

" Mr. John Sowler was the youngest son of Mr. Bowler, the founder of the 
Manchester Courier. He received the greater part of his education at the Man- 
chester free grammar school during the time that the rer. Jeremiah Smith, D.D., 
occupied the position of high master, and that gentleman strongly urged that he 
should be sent from school to the university of Oxford, but his father, baring 
other views for him, did not accede to the request. From the time of his leaving 
the school he has been actively engaged in the business management of the 
Courier f to which department he was ever after entirely devoted, and for which 
his business habits, steadiness of application, and thorough knowledge of all the 
details of newspaper management eminently fitted him. A firm supporter of 
church and state — a conservative in the truest sense of the word — whilst taking 
no prominent part in outward political life he believed he was best securing the 
furtherance of his principles and the cause of his party by aiding in the estab- 
lishment of a conservative daily paper which should reflect the opinions of the 
conservatives of Lancashire — a task to which he freely gave all bis energies. 
Amongst men best qualified to judge, the activity and tact he displayed in this 
work were admitted to have scarcely any equal; and his loss will be severely felt, 
not only by those with whom he was immediately connected, but by the party 
to which he attached himself. 

*' In private life he was retiring ; his charities were numerous, but unostenta- 
tious ; and he distributed with a liberal hand in all cases of real distress which 
were brought before him. Mr. John Sowler married the second daughter of 
Mr. Bevis E. G-reen, of the eminent London publishing firm of Messrs. Longman, 
Brown, Green and Longmans. His wife and two daughters survive him."

Thomas Cooper, son of Joseph Makinson, commission agent, Man- 
chester (19). 


In the yean 1829 and 1830 he took part at the public speeches, reciting in the 
latter year an extract from Moli^re. He was admitted a sizar of S. John's col- 
lege, Cambridge, in 1832, with a school exhibition, and graduated A.B. in 1835. 
He was ordained to the curacy of S. Ann's church, Manchester, my father being 
at that time the rector, and went out in 1839 to Sydney, on the recommenda- 
tion of the society for the propagation of the gospel, and was appointed to the 
charge of the church at Mulgoa, abo^t forty miles from Sydney. In the anxious 
years which followed the reyiral of church principles through the publication 
of the Oxford tracts, this scholar unhappily seceded to the church of Rome, his 
change of faith bringing with it, besides loss of social position, the trial of 
poTcrty, for he had a numerous family dependent upon him and that under yery 
straitened circumstances. In the autumn of 1854 he came orer to Europe and 
supported himself by tuition, residing at Liege in Belgium. In 1855 he was 
induced again to return to Sydney, and there he received the appointment of 
secretary to the Roman Catholic archbishop of Sydney, which he holds at the 
present time. 

William David, son of John Law, solicitor, Crumpsall (14). jJi^ 

He was drowned whilst bathing in the riTcr Irwell at Agecroft bridge, on the 20th

John, son of Edward Marsh, esquire, Upholland (20). 
Henry, son of the late William Milne, Manchester (13). 

The father of this scholar and his brother Edward were partners in the distillery, 
which was in the old apple market on the north side of the CoUegiate church 
and adjoining tbe play ground of the high-master's residence, and they both died 
on the same day, May 30th 1826, and were buried together at Prestwicb. 

Henry Milne, the scholar here recorded, was an exhibitioner of the school and 
elected to a Somerset scholarship, graduating at Brasenose college^ Oxford, B.A. 
on the 2nd June 1838, and M.A. on the loth June 1840, succeeding to one of 
Hulme's exhibitions in January 1837. He was ordained deacon and priest 
in 1839 and 1840 by Dr. C. R. Sumner, bishop of Winchester, as curate of 
PriTett in the parish of West Meon, Hants, of which Dr. H. Y. Bayley, arch- 
deacon of Stow, was rector. In 1844 he became rector of Holme Hale, Norfolk, 
where he is now resident, and of which benefice he is also the patron. He re- 
stored the church in 1870. 

Henry Milne married on the 9th Norember 1842 Susan, elder daughter of 
Mr. Richard Gould, of Hope hall, Ecdes, by whom he has liring three sons and 
four daughters. His eldest son, Richard H. Milne^ haying graduated at Brase- 
nose college, an Hulmian exhibitioner, is now curate of S. Mary Bishopehill, 
Senior, York. His second son is an architect in London. 

William^ son of William Willcock, gentleman, Regent-road, Man- April 
Chester (13). 


aJJS William, son of William Whitelegg, gentleman, Northen, Cheshire 


The father of this scholar married Mary, daughter of Mr. J. Cragg, of Carrington 
hall, bj whom he had three sons and one daughter. The schohir here recorded 
was the second son, and is now the only surTiTlng member of the family. He 
took part in the public speeches of 1830, was appointed to a school exhibition 
in 1834, and elected to a Bridgeman exhibition at Queen's college, Oxford, where 
he graduated B.A. on the ist December 1837, and M.A. on the 6th June 1840. 
He was ordained deacon and priest by Dr. J. B. Sumner, bishop of Chester, to the 
curacy of S. George's-in-the-Fields, Manchester, in which laborious curacrjr, and in 
that of 8. Mark's, Cheetham Hill, he passed the first fire years of his clerical life. 
On the death of the rev. Joshua Lingard, M.A., in 1842 (for notice of whom eee 
Register^ vol. ii. p. 106), he was selected by the warden and fellows of the Colle- 
giate church to take charge of S. George's, Hulme, one of the largest churches 
in Manchester, with a population attached to it of 26,000 people, and held also 
the office of chaplain to the cavalry barracks. S. George's was then the only 
church in the township of Hulme, and Mr. Whitelegge the only clergyman. 
The duties of this most laborious charge he faithfully and successfully dis- 
charged for the long period of twenty -nine years, the late bishop of Manchester 
(by no means a favourer of those who at that time were regarded as high 
churchmen), recognising his steady work of many years and his high character, 
by promoting him to the office of rural dean, and to an honorary canonry 
in Manchester cathedral. When Mr. Whitelegge resigned the rectory of S. 
George's in 1871 the population of Hulme had increased to 80,000, there were 
ten churches, besides sereral mission rooms, and a staff* of clergy in the same 
area exceeding twenty. In this most necessary expansion of the church Mr. 
Whitelegge took great interest, and the erection of at least one church was owing 
to his own personal exertions. One of his latest acts, as rector, was to undertake 
single-handed, i.e. without the aid of a committee, the erection of new schools for 
the parish of S. George, the cost of which, apart from the site valued at i20o2., 
amounted to 4300Z., and capable of receiving upwards of 11 00 children. These 
schools were formally opened and made over to the parish in Easter 1871. At 
a lai^e gathering of his parishioners (more than 500 being present), he received 
from them a very gratifying testimonial on resigning the charge of S. George's 
parish, in recognition of his long-continued labours for the spiritual welfare of 
the parish. 

Mr. Whitelegge married, at Ilfracombe in 1 849, Mary, eldest daughter of William 
Goodlad, esq., a well-known surgeon of Bury and Cheetham Hill, whose wife was 
Mary, eldest daughter of Edmund Haworth, esq., of Bury (see supra, p. 31). 
His name is found rery frequently among the old scholars assembled at the anni- 
versary festivals, and he was the senior steward in 1845. He is still resident at 



At the election of a proctor in 1867, to represent the clergy of the archdeaconry of 
Manchester in the York convocation, and to succeed Mr. Dnmford, the rector 
of Middleton (now bishop of Chichester), on his appointment to the office of 
archdeacon, Mr. Whitelegge was selected as a candidate on the high church side, 
but at that time the other party were more numerous, and the election termi- 
nated in favour of the rev. Joseph Birchall, for whom see supra^ p. 149. 

Mr. Whitelegge has published several single Sermons : e.ff, on EegenercUion and 
JBapUtm; The Weekly Offertory ; and an Ordination Sermon, printed at the 
request of Dr. Lee, late bishop of Manchester.

Henry Elwyn, second surviving son of the second master of the school, bom at 
Manchester on the 2 and June 1820, was destined for the medical profession, 
but the education in some of its branches was so repugnant to him that the idea 
was given up. He had also a defect in his yision which was unable to distin- 
guish certain colours, and this caused a difficulty in selecting his future mode of 
life. After some time he obtained an appointment in the bank of England, and in 
1858 was promoted to be sub-agent of the western branch of the bank with a 
residence in Burlington gardens. He did not long enjoy this promotion, for he 
was not of a very robust constitution, and the anxieties attendant upon his office 
were too much for a delicate and sensitive frame and he was obliged to resign it, 
receiring from the governors a pension which was continued until his death. 
He is spoken of as a man of high and honourable character, of a genial and 
affectionate disposition, and of decidedly religious mind. He died unmarried at 
Moulton, in Lincolnshire, on the 15th October 1865, and was there buried, aged

suiting physician to the Great Western railway proTident society, and physician 
to the Equity and Law life assurance society. These appointments Dr. Markham 
resigned in 1 866, relinquishing at the same time the prospect of a large practice 
as a consulting physician, on heing nominated by the president of the Poor-law 
board as metropolitan inspector and medical adviser. He had no sooner be-

For six years Dr. Markham was editor of the Journal of the Brttish Mtdieai 
Ajuodaiion, a weekly publication, and a very frequent contributor to the various

Those of his schoolfellows yet surviving who remember their amiable, gentlemanly 
and promising condisdpuhts of years long gone by, will unite in an earnest hope 
that health may be restored to one whose professional career has done so much 
honour to the school which records his name among her many distinguished 
scholars, members of the same honourable profession.

the latter had so remarkable an escape from sudden death. I am told that the 
memorial referred to in the notice of Richard Withington, though at one time 
perhaps contemplated, was nerer executed. James Withington was bom in 
Deansgate on the 9th September 1765, and soon after his birth his &ther, 
Richard Withington, senior, who was a dyer, went to lire in an old house near 
what is now Seedley road, Pendleton, where he died in 1784. His son James 
was, in early life, a dyer, but afterwards a fustian manufacturer, with a ware- 
house in Kew Cannon street, and married Miss Bancroft of Cheadle, by whom 
he had nine children, retiring from business before the birth of the scholar here 
recorded, and dying at Pendleton on the 9th May 1829. His widow, who died 
so recently as the 27th Februaiy 1868, resided in the same house for the long 
period of sixty-two years, which is now occupied by Mr. Charles Withington, 
the youngest surriying brother of this scholar. 

George Bancroft Withington (first cousin to Heniy Withington, icxt whom see 
Begister, toL ii. p. 239), on leaying schpol, studied for the law, was admitted 
an attorney in 1840, and became partner with Mr. William Casson (who retired 
from practice in 1844), and is now the senior partner in the firm of Withington, 
Petty and Boutflower, and resident at Broughton. He has a family of four sons 
and three daughters. 

8. Samuel, son of Samuel Whitaker, Newchurch, near Rochdale (15),

ordained deacon in 1839 by Dr. V. Harconrt, archbishop of York, and priest in 
1840 bj Dr. Bowstead, bishop of Lichfield, and held the following curacies: 
Tipton, Staffbrdshire, 1839-41 ; Dunnington, near York, 1842-45; Penrhds, 
near Oswestrj, 1845-47. To the yicarage of the latter parish he succeeded in 
1847, on the presentation of J. R. Onnsby Gore, esq., M.P., and is now resident 
there, baring married, in 1846, Ann, eldest sunriving daughter of William 
Liddell, esq., of Poulton-le-Fylde, near Blackpool, by whom he had one only

Thomas, son of Thomas Davis, grocer, Salford (12). 17. 

John Charles, son of Thomas Bagshaw, schoolmaster, Stretford 17. 


This scholar, the third son of Mr. Thomas Bagshaw, who kept a priyate school at 
Stretford, and bom at Mossley, Lancashire, left the school at the end of 1834, 
owing to the death of both his parents, but did not proceed to Oxford until 1840, 
when he was admitted to Brasenose college, and soon after elected a Somerwt scho* 
lar, and succeeded to a Hulmian exhibition in February 1843. ^0 graduated B.A. 
on the 2nd May 1844, and M.A. on the i8th June 1846 ; and was ordained deacon 
in 1845, and priest in 1846, by Dr. Sumner, bishop of Chester, to the curacy of 
Deane, near Bolton . In the following year he was appointed on^ of the missionary 
chaplains to Dr. Augustus Short, then consecrated bishop of Adelaide, and sailed 
for that diocese, acting as chaplain to an emigrant ship. On the bishop's arriyal 
later in the year, Mr. Bagshaw was sent to open a mission, of which the head 
quarters were at Kooringa, the township at the Burra-Burra mine, about one 
hundred miles north of Adelaide, and more than eighty from the nearest deigy- 
roan. Hera he remained two years and erected a large school-house, and was then 
rsmoTod to another district, called Penwortham, where an early settler in the 
colony, Mr. John Horrocks, one of the well-known Lancashire fitmily of that 
name, had set apart a site for a chmrch and burial ground, baring his residence 
there, in a rery lorely part of the proTince of South Australia, to which he gare 










the name of Fenwortham, after the Lancashire Tillage near Preston. Here 
Mr. Horrooks was afterwards buried, haying died from the effects of an accident 
which he met with while exploring the northern part of the colonj. Mr. Bag- 
shaw remained at Fenwortham three jears, and was successful in building two 
churches and a parsonage house. In January 1853 he was appointed to the 
charge of S. John's church in the city of Adelaide, which he was compelled to 
resign in 1855, from the heat of the dimate, and went to New Zealand, whero 
he remained until the early part of 1869. 

Whilst resident at New Zealand he was engaged in missionary and educational 
work, being tbe first principal of Nelson college from 1856 to 1859, incumbent 
of Motuoka in the diocese of Nelson from 1859 to 1863, and from that date to the 
time of his return to England incumbent of Aronside, in the diocese of Christ 
Church. Here he was the means of a school being built, as well as a good par- 
sonage house. In the synodioal work of the dioceses of Nelson and Christ Church 
lie took an active part, being for some time secretary of synod, one of the 
Church property trustees, and a member of the standing committee. A resolu- 
tion of the last session of the Nelson synod in 1863 expresses regret at Mr. 
Bagshaw's leaving that diocese, in which '* during eight years he had minutered 
with signal ability, and with uniform and marked success, in each of the several 
spheres to which he had been successively called." 

Mr. Bagshaw returned to England in 1869 after twenty-one years' colonial work, 
having married at Fenwortham, South Australia, Amelia, second daughter of 
Joseph Woodroffe, esq., by whom he has one daughter, and is now resident at 
the chaplain's lodge, Hawkstone, near Shrewsbury, as domestic chaplain to vis- 
count Hill. The private chapel at Hawkstone was restored a few years ago, at a 
cost of 4,ooo2., under the superintendence of Mr. (now sir) Q-. G-. Scott, architect.

5 John Hebdin, son of Robert Constantino, designer on wood, Sal-

October 10. John James, son of the late John Conway, corn merchant, Liver- 
pool (16). 

He was appointed to a school exhibition in 1836, and admitted to Brasenose col- 
lege, Oxford. At the public examination in Michaelmas term, 1839, he was 
placed in the third class in lAt. Sum,, but does not appear to haye taken the 
ixsual B.A. degree. In the Oxford Calendar of 1844 his name occurs among the 
students of ciyil law, and he was called to the bar in Noyember of that year as a 
member of Lincoln's inn. His death was sudden, on the i8th October 1863, 
and was recorded in the following extract from one of the local papers : — 

'* On Sunday morning a melancholy accident occurred at the Woodside landing 
stage to Mr. John James Conway, barrister-at-law, who resided at 6, Vernon 
place, Conway street, Birkenhead, and who occupied chambers in the Clarendon 
rooms, Liyerpool. Mr. Conway, it appears, reached the Gheorge's landing stage 
on Sunday morning about one o'clock, just as the steamer * Liyerpool' was leay- 
ing for Woodside. The unfortunate gentleman, eyidently anxious not to be de- 
tained an hour on the Liyerpool side, made a determined efibrt to get on board 
the boat, and thrust his head under the chains in front of the stage. The 
officer on duty, being apprehensiye that he would tumble into the riyer, endea- 
youred to hold him back, but Mr. Conway leaped to the steamer, and with the 


asristance of one of the firemen he was safely got on board. He then went into 
cabii) until the ' Liyerpool' reached the Woodside stage. The crew took no es- 
pecial notice of him until the gangwaj was being lowered into the steamer, when 
he was observed standing on the sponson aft of the paddle box, as if about to 
jump upon the stage. One of the crew called to him to wait until the gangway 
was ready, but disregarding the caution he leaped from the boat, and in attempt- 
ing to pass oyer the low chains which run in front of the stage about three or 
four feet from, the edge, he stumbled and fell backwards into the river between 
the steamer and the stage. His face was seen for an instant in the water, and 
then he disappeared, having doubtless been carried under the stage by the flood 
tide. Every exertion was made by the crew of the steamer and the men on the 
landing stage to rescue him. Lifebuoys were lowered at the spot where he fell, 
lanterns were procured to throw light upon the water, and the steamer went up 
the river some distance in search of him, but all the efforts of the men were un- 
successful. During the day placards were issued offering a reward of 52. for the 
recovery of the body. 

'* Mr. Conway was well known among the legal profession in Liverpool, and had 
a considerable local practice. Occasionally, during the absence of the regular 
judges, he presided in the county courts in Liverpool and Birkenhead. He was 
a bachelor and resided with his sister. He was about forty-five years of age."

first wife Sarah, only daughter of Mr. Edward Smith, of Birmingham, notary 
public, whose family was long connected with that town and with Presbyterian 
dissent), is the younger brother of Mr. Edward Herford, coroner of Manchester, 


and the well-known chsinnAn of the National association for promoting the free- 
dom of worship. Leanng the school in 1835, W. H. Herford became a dirinitj 
student at Manchester college, Tork, in 1837, and graduated at the uniyersity of 
London in June 1841. After about three jears spent abroad, chiefly at Bonn 
on the Rhine, he became minister of the Presbyterian congregation at Lancaster 
in October 1845, and in the following year tutor to the honourable Ralph Mil- 
banke, now baron Wentworth, then under the guardianship of lady Byron. In 
1848 he returned to Lancaster. He is now minister at the meeting house in 
Upper Brook street, Manchester. 
A younger brother of this scholar, major Yernon Herford, was killed at the taking 
of a pah in the last New Zealand war. Others of the family hare gained dis- 
tinction in the army. 

John Edward, son of Edward Norris, cotton spinner, Manchester (8) . FebAiir^ 1.

John Alexander Gordon Dunstan, the second son, remained at the school longer 
than his elder brother, and about the year 1840 receiyed a junior appointment in 
the office of the then secretary to the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Ck>., and 
from that time, by his industry and intelligence, improved his position until 
1849, when the directors raised him to the post of assistai^ to that of secretary, 
which he continued to fill until his untimely death, on the 4th of March 1855, 
aged 31. He was highly thought of by the. directors of the company, who, in

August IS. Charles Hanson, son of George Sale, draper, Atherstone, Warwick- 
shire (17), 

The flilh son, and brother to William Sale, the head of the legal firm of Sale and 
Co., solicitors, Manchester. The father of this scholar, though a tradesman, was 
a lineal descendant of the family of Sale of Barrow-upon-Trent, Derbyshire, one 
of considerable antiquity in the county. Charles Hanson Sale was an exhibi- 
tioner of the school, a Somerset scholar at Brasenose college, Oxford, and one of 
Hulme's exhibi^ipnerB. He graduated B.A. on the aist May 1840, M.A. on the

esq., of Newton house, Warwickshire^ and was presented by the lord chancellor, 
in 1859, to the Ticarage of Kirbj-on-the-Moor, near Boroughbridge, Yorkshire,

William Cooper, son of Thomas Palmer, dancing master, Man- AugiJ"n. 
Chester (i2)# 

The father was well known in his profession, and taught dancing to the boarders 
of the masters. He had for some years an annual exhibition of the skill and 
proficiency of his pnpils at the Theatre rojal, Manchester, which was Teiy 
numerously attended by their relations and friends, in one of which I remember 
taking part, circa 1825. I think that was the last occasion of the kind.

married at WybenbuTy church, in December 1868, the eldest daughter of Mr. John 
Speakman, solicitor, of Nantwich, and has two sods. 

John, son of John Sudlow, attorney, Manchester (12). n. 

The name of this scholar occurs yery frequently in the records of the annirersory 
meetings of old scholars from 1847 to 186 1. In the latter year he was senior 
steward, having previously in 1 854 filled the vice-chair as locum tenetu for Mr. 
W. Harrison Ainsworth, who was unable to be present. He died on the 4th 
December 1870, in his 50th year, and on the day of his burial the following notice 
appeared in the columns of the Manchester CowrieTy from the pen of the presi- 
dent of the Chetham society. 

'* On this day the funeral of this lamented member of the legal profession will 
take place at Chorlton-cu ii-Hardy. A few words are due to one who was so 
generally known and respected, and so long and so efficiently connected with the 
Conservative cause in the southern division of this county. Mr. Sudlow was 
bom in 1820. His father was a partner in the firm of "Ainsworth, Crossley, and 
Sudlow," subsequently "Crossley and Sudlow," solicitors, and died in 1849. 
His son was educated at the Manchester Free Grammar School, in which founda- 
tion he ever after took great interest. He published a pamphlet in reference to 
it at the period when it became the subject of the legal proceedings which exer- 
cised so injurious an effect upon its finances; and in the last volume of the 
"Gammar School Begister," printed for the Chetham Society, we find bis name 
as one of the contributors of information to that interesting and important work. 
Having gone through the preparatory course, he was admitted an attorney in 

' 1844, and on the death of his father took his place as a partner with Mr. James 
Crossley, under the continued style of " Crossley and Sudlow," till the retire- 
ment of that gentleman in 1 860. Mr. Sudlow soon afterwards entered into part- 


nership with Mr. John Boiy, and, on hia retiring, formed the present firm of 
"Sudlow and Hinde/* with a branch firm at Altrinobam in connection with 
Mr. NichoUfl. From his entering into business tiJl his prostration, by a combinar 
tion of maladies under which his constitution gradually sunk, Mr. Sudlow deToted 
himself energetically and unceasingly to the management of a large professional 
practice, and by his ability, sound sense, honourable conduct, and legal knowledge, 
acquired the confidence of all who entrusted their interests to him, and maintained, 
as he well deserred, a high position amongst his brethren of the law. In bis 
hands were generally placed the important responsibilities connected with the 
Conserrative cause at the registrations and elections for the southern division of 
Lancashire and, at the late election, those of this borough, and it would have 
been difficult indeed to find any one in whom the requisites for the situation he 
was called upon to fill were more, happily combined. His clear, acute and sys- 
tematic understanding saw at once what it was necessary to do, and what was 
the beat way of doing it ; and the eulogy which the present writer once heard 
from an excellent judge was by no means undeserved — that there was not a 
better election agent in the kingdom. His merits were well understood by the 
leaders of the Conservative party, by whom he was occasionally consulted, and 
who had great confidence in the soundness of his judgment and the accuracy of 
his information. He was, as a thorough Conservative in principle, strongly at- 
tached to the Church of England, and held himself bound to serve those lay 
offices which are so intimately connected with it, and are so necessary for the 
decency of its ministration. He was one of the churchwardens of Manchester 
during the three years 1861, 1862, and 1863 ; and in the latter two stood the first 
in the list. Amidst the occupations and engrossing calls of his profession h:; had 
not neglected those humanising influences which tend so much to smooth and 
soften its rigour, and, by the cultivated pursuits which they cherish, to cheer and 
brighten the close of a laborious life. He had read extensively, was well ac- 
quainted with the great authors of England, and took an interest in subjects of 
literary investigation. The history of this locality bad always attractions for 
him, particularly the history and connection of its charities and foundations. Of 
the Chetham Society he was a member and supporter from its commencement. 
Social, kindly, genial, and warm-hearted, it is scarcely necessary to say that he 
possessed an extensive circle of friends, by whom his loss will be deeply felt and 
regretted. In his own family, by the members of which he was fully and duly 
estimated, the departure of such a head at that period in which a man is gen- 
erally considered as in the prime of life and vigour is a bereavement the extent 
of which language can but imperfectly do justice to. After a long and painful 
struggle, Mr. Sudlow expired at his^house, New Holme, Whalley Range, on Sun- 
day last." 
The principal portion of Mr. Sudlow's valuable and well-selected library was dis- 
posed of by Messrs. Hutchings and Pilcher, by public auction, at their rooms, 
on the 6th and 7 th July 1871. Mr. Sudlow left by his wife, Alice, the daughter 



of John Macfarlane, esq., two sons, the eldest of whom is a partner in the con- 
tinued firm of Hinde, Milne and Sudlow, and three daughters.

John Hulse, who himself lired there, to Thomas and Elicabeth Plant, the grand- 
father and grandmother of this scholar (the latter being his relative) for their 
lives, and afterwards for the endowments mentioned above. The estate is still 
occupied by members of the Plant family. (See Ormerod's Cheshire^ vol. iii. p. 60.)

Mr. Charles Foulett Harris, the father of this scholar, was a second-hand bookseller, 
haying a shop in Cross street, near S. Anna's street. He was originally in the 
nayy, where he had interest and prospect of promotion, but left it from loye of 
change, and entered the army where he became lieutenant in the 6oth rifles. 
After he gaye up his shop he resided in Ghrosyenor street, and, being a good 
linguist, gaye lessons in languages, and subsequently remoyed to Rusholme, where 
he was generally known as captain Harris, a title giyen to him owing to ]}is haying 
been both a nayal and military man. In the Manchester and Salford Directories 
of 1840 and 1845 he will be found described according to these changes of pro- 
fession and residence. He is still aliye, in his 82nd year, and xvsides at Whitehall 
near Bristol. 

All his fiye sons were admitted to the school. His eldest son, Richard Deodatos, 
entered the school at the dose of the year 1837, ii^mediately after my father's 
resignation of the high mastership, and therefore his name does not appear in 
this yolume ; but as the elder brother of the two scholars here recorded, and as 
one of a distinguished fsimily, he may fairly claim some notice in these pages. 
He was not long enough in the school to become a candidate for an exhibition, 
being admitted as a foundation sizar to Trinity college^ Cambridge, at the end of 
1839. He graduated A.B. in 1843, &&d was pUced twenty-fourth among the 


wnnglen in that jear ; and A.M. in 1852. He held appointments in the pnblio 
•chools of Sheffield and Blaokheath and at Huddenfield college ; and wai ordained 
deacon and priest in 1847 to the corapj of Longsight, Manchester. In 1858 he 
became head master of the high school, Hobart Town, Tasmania, where he is 
now tiring, married, and the father of a large family. 

George Poulett, the second son, was appointed to a school exhibition in 1841, and 
graduated A.B. at Trinity college, Cambridge, in 1844, when he was placed 
twenty-sixth among the senior optimes and tenth in the second class in the 
classical tripos, and A.M. in 1854. He was ordained deacon in 1845 and priest 
in 1847, as curate of Kirkby S. Stephen, Westmorhind; and, haying held the 
second mastership of the Collegiate school, Leicester, from 1847 to 1853, and the 
head mastership of Grove Park school, Wrexham, in 1854 and 1855, became in 
the latter year the head master of the endowed church school at S. John's, 
Newfoundland, which he held until the dose of 1864. He subsequently officiated 
as chaplain at Moscow, in 1865-^6, and was for about two years curate of Bangor 
Monachorum, in Flintshire. After a brief connection with Malvern college as an 
assistant master, he took the mastership of the modem department in Biohmond 
grammar school, Yorkshire, which he holds at the present time. 

Mr. George P. Harris married at Brighton in 1854 Miss Martha MeCarroll, and 
has four sons and one daughter. His eldest son is now, and has been for some 
time, head boy of Richmond school.

Philip Watson, son of captain Braybrooke, Ceylon rifle corps, ^. 

Manchester (11). 

For two uncles of this scholar, Stephen Henry and James Braybrooke, see supra, 
p. 178, and Addenda to this volume. 

The father of this scholar was Samuel, the third son of major William Braybrooke, 
barrack-master of Manchester. He received a commission in the Ceylon rifles 
in 18 1 3, and married the daughter of his conmianding officer, colonel Delatre, 
by whom he had a numerous family. He rose to be colonel of his regiment, and 
is now lieutenant-general and colonel of the 99th regiment, and resident in Lon- 
don. Three of his sons were admitted to Manchester school : Philip Watson, 
the scholar here recorded, who went out to Ceylon, where he held a civil appoint- 
ment, but now retired from service and liring at Leamington ; William Lemon, 
the second son, who held a commission in the Ceylon rifles and was killed at the 
battle of the Alma, flghting as a volunteer ; and Charles Henry Stewart, now 
resident at Blackburn. 

Some few words may be added with propriety respecting the grand&ther of this 
scholar, who, both on account of his long public service, and many years' con- 
nection with Manchester, is worthy of permanent notice. Mi^or William Bray- 


brooke was bom at Timworth, in Suffolk, on the 8th September 1760, and 
joined the itt royals when a mere youth. In 1783 he married, at Perth, Isabel 
Bow, and by her had soTon sons and four daughters. He serred with distinction 
under the duke of York in Flanders, and in 1 801, on retiring from aotive senrioe, 
was appointed barrack-master at Bamsgate, where he had the painful duty of 
reoeiying the ferer-stricken remains of the army that was sacrificed in the fata^ 
Walcheren expedition. Ho was promoted to the barrack-mastership of Sheffield, 
and fiye years later, in 1819, from thence to Manchester. In 1838 he retired on 
a well-earned pension, after a military sendee of oyer fifty-eight years, and died 
in 1852, at the great age of 93, his wife haying predeceased him in 1850. They 
were both buried in the churchyard of S. George's, Hulme. 
Of major Braybrooke*s four daughters, the third, Sarah Isabella, married Mr. John 
Smith, of Hulme (for whom see He^uter, gupra, p. 84), whose son, John Stores 
Smith, was admitted to the school at a date subsequent to this yolume.

the assistant masters (for notice of whom see Setter, mpra, p. 164), one of 
whose daughters married a son of shr E. Armitage, knt., of Manchester. 

John Henry Jenkinson did not remain long at the school. After some yean 
spent in the priyate school of the rey. J. Bell at Heywood hall, Alderley (whose 
son is now rector of Alderley), he joined his father in the firm of Jenkinson and 
Bow, machine brokers, Blackfriars, Manchester. He is now a commission agent.

his son's admission to the school, his wife haying predeceased him in 1829. His 
son John was for many years after leaying school in the warehouse of Messrs. 
Ghirdner and Atkinson, merchants, Manchester, and engaged with a Liyerpool 
firm in 1 847 to go to Yalparaiso, and thence to Lima. After thirteen years re- 
sidence there, he returned home in broken health in 1859. Repeated subsequent 
disappointments in business preyed upon his mind, and after a confinement of 
two years to his house he died unmarried, on the i8th January 1869, and wss 
buried in Liscard chapelyard, near New Brighton. 

Auf(ast4 Edward, son of the late Edward Pedder, gent., Lancaster (15).

cheater trade. 

William Nicholas^ son of Gteorge Bragg, gentleman, Devonshire 4 

The father resided at Forder house, Moretonhampstead. The son, who was nephew

daughters and one son. He died at Furlong house on the ist July 1869, and 
there is a monument to him in Drewsteignton church, whore he was buried. He 
kept a pack of harriers, and is spoken of as a very popular man, of ready wit and 
pleasing manners. The attendance at his burial is said to have been the largest 
ever known in the neighbourhood.

7. John, son of James Bremner, cotton spinner, Chorlton (12). 

The age of this scholar on entering school was ten yean old, not twelye. 

John Alexander, the third son of James Bremner, cotton spinner and merehant^ of 
Aspull, near Wigan, and of Manchester, is an oil merchant in Manchester, and 
resides at Hilton house, Prestwich. He has for many years taken an actire part in 


pablio matters, more especially in the question of popular education, and was ho- 
norary secretary to the education aid society of Manchester, which endeayourod to 
promote the education of poor children by payment of the school-pence, but failed 
after a short time through the general indifference of parents about sending their 
children to school. He read a paper on the subject at the social science congress 
held at Manchester in 1 866, under the presidency of Mr. Bruce, now lord Aberdare. 
Mr. Bremner subsequently advocated the same scheme at public meetings held 
at Birmingham in 1867, at Sheffield in 1869, and at Liverpool ; and acted as secre- 
tary to the Manchester education bill committee appointed at a town's meeting, 
the object of which measure was to supplement the old voluntary system by a local 
rate in aid. This bill was introduced by Mr. Bruce, but did not pass the house 
of oommons. In preparing the education bill of 1870 Mr. Bremner, with others 
who had taken a prominent part in the Manchester movement, was frequently 
consulted by Mr. Forster ; and shortly before the passing of the act he contributed 
to the Manchester statistical society a paper entitled, '* The principle of compul- 
sion in primary education.*' 

Mr. Bremner, who has for some years been one of the poor-law guardians of Man- 
chester and a deputy treasurer of the Boyal infirmary, acts as a magistrate for 
the county of Lancaster and for the city of Manchester, interesting himself in 
the question of prison discipline and in the reform of our licensing laws, as 
relates to public houses. He is also honorary secretary to the Spenser society, 
a society formed for reprinting our early English poetical literature, and a 
fellow of the London statistical society. He read a paper at the recent social

The grandfather of this scholar, William Perkins, was at one time a well-to-do 
Herefordshire farmer, liriog on his own property at Michaelchurch Eskley, but 
was not prosperous, and subsequently became a tenant farmer in the same 
county. When far adranced in years he married a second wife, and his son 
John Perkins, father of this scholar, was bom in the parish of Abbey Dore, 
near Hereford. 

George Perkins was appointed to a school exhibition, and also to an Hulmian ex- 
hibition, and was elected a Somerset scholar at Brasenose college, Oxford, where 
he graduated B.A. on the i8th June 1846, being placed at the preceding Easter 
examination in the second clsss in Lit. Hum., and in the third class in Dis. 
Math, et Phyt. He graduated M.A. on the ist February 1849, and has now 
been officially connected with Manchester school for the long period of twenty- 
fire years, first as one of the assistant masters, and afbertvards as the second 
master. He was ordained in 1848 to the curacy of S. John's church, Broughton. 
He has published Earlff difficuUie$ in writing Latin. London, Simpkin & Co., 

Mr. Perkins speaks with grateful remembrance of the kindness of the late Mr. Wil- 
liam Gamett, then residing at Lark hiU, Salford, and his excellent sister-in-law, 
Miss Jane Carson, still liring, to whom he was indebted for his introduction to 
Manchester school, and to the subsequent opportunities of an uniycrsity career. 


The distinction which he gained at Oxford, and the able discharge of his duties 
as one of the masters of the school, hare folly justified the interest which his 
kind patrons took in the youthful scholar.

ment being Uw and history. He published the notes of his lectures in 1862, 
entitled A popular Manual of the Conttitutional History of England : London, 
Macnullan : and is now preparing a second edition. Mr. T. B. Bennett, who 
married in 1849 Miss Went worth, is resident at Stoke Newington, where he has 
serred the offices of churchwarden and poor-law guardian. He was one of the 
early members of the English Church union, on its establishment in 1859,

In this, as in the preceding portions of the BegUter^ the names of 
several scholars have been omitted; and among them the fol- 
lowing ought to haye been recorded. 

Thomas Kibble Hervey. 

Though in some biognkphical notices which I hare seen of tbia acoomi^hed poet 
there is no mention of his having reoeiyed a portion of his early education at 
Manchester school, I distinctly remember to haye heard my father say that be 
was for a time one of the schoUrs, and I possess a copy of the first edition of his 
first publication, Auttralia and other PoemSf which he presented to my father. 
The Tolume referred to is dedicated to his father, James Herrey, esq., and in the 
Mam^eHer and Salford Directoriea of 18 11, 18x5 and 1821, I find *'Jamee 
Heryey, drysalter, and agent to the Atlas Fire Office, i, Oldham street," with a 
house at Ardwick. This would, doubtless, be the father of the scholar. Two of 
his aunts, unmarried ladies, were resident at Brewood, Staffordshire, from aboat 
1848 to 1853, in a house belonging to my father. 

Thomas K. Heryey was an undergraduate of Trinity college, Cambridge, bat did 
not take any degree. He was intended for the legal profession, but did not pur- 
sue it, the pleasures of a literal^ life haying greater attraction for him. He 
married, on the 17th October 1843, at S. James's church, Piccadilly, Eleanora 
Louisa (herself an authoress), only daughter of G^rge Oonway Montagu, of 
Lackham house, Wilts, and his wife Margaret, daughter of Richard Wilson of 
Liyerpool, and had one son, Frederic Robert James Heryey, bom at Ealing on 
the I xth March 1845, and now liying. He died on the 27th February 1859, at 
Kentish Town, and was buried in Highgate cemetery. 

Mr. T. K. Hervey, who was at one time editor of the AthwMBnn^ is the author of 
the following works : 

1. AuHraUaand other Poenu. i2mo. London. 1824. 

2. 2!^ j?oe<uMxl iSAretoA ^00^, including a third edition of^tctf ra/ia. 8yo. 1829. 

3. lUuetraiione of Modem Seulpttire, a series of engrayings, with desoriptiTC 
prose and iUustratiye poetry, by T. K. Heryey. Folio. 1832. 

Of this beautiful and expensiTC work I haye the first six parts, forming yol. i. 
Owing to causes alluded to in the preface, Mr. Hervey, the original projector of 
this work, had no share in the production of part iy. and a portion of part y. 

4. The Snglith Selieon, 8yo. 1841. 

5. The Book of Christmas. 

He was also a frequent contributor to the pages of I\riendship*s QffMng, the 
Literary Souvenir, and others of the annuals so popular fifty years ago.

ciTillawin 1832, taking the degree of LL.B. in 1836. He resided at Heath 
house, near Ludlow, and afterwards at Prinknash park, near Fainswick, Glouces- 
tershire, and represented the borough of Ludlow in parliament from 1 841 to 
1847. His name appears among old scholars present at the jubilee meeting in 

He married, in 1833, Mary Anne, daughter of B. Williams, esq., by whom he 
had two sons, the elder of whom, James Ackers, died at the age of 22, some years 
before his father. The younger son, Benjamin S. John Ackers, is now resident 
at Prinknash. Mr. Ackers was buried in the churchyard of Upton S. Leonard's, 
Gloucestershire, having died on the 27th September 1868, aged 57. The rector 
of Cranham, near Fainswick, speaks of him as a kind and liberal benefactor to 
his parish, in which he had but a small property, Frinknash park being extra- 
parochial, and as having contributed largely to the restoration of Cranham 
church in 1862. There is a short inscription on his tomb, with these words from 
the 119th psalm : "Thou in faithfulness hast afflicted me." 

He had two sisters. The marriage of " Miss Susan Ackers, of Frinknash park, only 
surriring child of the late colonel Ackers, formerly of Lark hill, Fendleton, Lan- 
cashire, to the rer. E. B. Shaw, rector of Karborough, Leicestershire, and B.D.," 
was announced in the papers in September 1872. The rev. B. B. Shaw was, I 
think, formerly perpetual curate of S. Matthew's church, Manchester, which he 
resigned about the year 1835. 

William Robert Keeling. 

This scholar, son of the rer. William Keeling, perpetual curate of Fendleton, took 
part on the public speech day of 1826 and 1827, and graduated of S. John's col- 
lege, Cambrid^ A.B. 1833. He was ordained deacon in 1835 and priest in 
1836, by Dr. J. B. Sumner, bishop of Chester, to the curacy of S. Mazy's, Man- 
chester, and was presented to the perpetual curacy (now rectory) of BlaoUey, 
near Manchester, in 1838, by the warden and fellows of the Collegiate church, 
Manchester. Here he resided until his death on the 9th August 1869, and during 
his inoumben<7 rebuilt the church, was instrumental in founding another ohuroh 
in an outlying part of the parish, and promoted the building of three sets of schools. 


He married at Blacklej, in 1839, SuBan, daughter of Charles Nerill, esq., by 
whom he had two sons and three daoghters. HU elder son, W. H. Seeling, 
M.A. (see fitpra, p. 163), is now head master of Bradford grammar school, and f 

his younger son, Charles Nerill Keeling, A.M., rector of S. James's, Colljhurst, 
Manchester. ( 

Mr. Keeling is buried at Blacklej, in a yault belonging to his wife's fanulj, and 
there is in the church a stained glass window to his memory, placed there at the 
cost of the parishioners, with a short inscription underneath. The subject of 
the window is the life of Christ. 

Thomas Seddon Scholes. 

Mr. George Scholes, the father, carried on the bank in Cannon street, which was 
formerly known under the title of John Greaves and Co. (see Regtkter^ toL iL 
p. 228), and resided at High bank, Prestwich. His son Thomas Seddon, who 
married Miss Hannah Greenwood of Polefield, Prestwich, sister to Thomas 
and John Greenwood (for whom see supra^ p. iii), succeeded him in the 
management of the bank, which was then known as that of Scholes and Co., 
until its discontinuance in 1847. He was a magistrate of the county of Lan- 
caster, and resided at High bank, Prestwich. For many years past he has lived 
at Leamington. In 1843 he was vice-president at the anniversary meeting of old 
scholars (see Begisier, vol. ii. p. 114). 

For his brother Frederick, see supraj p. 182. 

Alfred Joshua Wood. 

The father of this scholar lived, I am told, at Moss cottage, Rnsholme. He had 
been unprosperous in mercantile affairs, and his wife, who was a native of Glou- 
cester, and a woman of energy and abilities, exerted herself to rescue the family 
from the evils of poverty by keeping a school. This, the eldest, son was ad- 
mitted to the school in 18 19, and about 1821 his father received the appoint- 
ment of master at the Blue coat corporation school in Gloucester, which caused 
the removal of the family to that town. Alfred J. Wood became a pupil at S. 
Bartholomew's hospital, London, and was admitted L.S.A. and M.R.C. Surg, in 
1 8 30. In 1 85 3 he was elected fellow of the R. C. Surg., and took the degree of M.D. 
at S. Andrew's university in i8j8, and was surgeon to the Gloucester general 
infirmary from 1839 to 1858, and to the Gloucester Magdalene asylum from 1842 
to 1858. He resigned both these appointments when he became resident super- 
intendent of Barnwood house registered hospital for the insane, whioh office he 
holds at the present time. Dr. Wood has served the office of mayor of the city 
of Gloucester, and is now the senior magistrate of the borough. 

His second brother, Charles Frederick Bryan Wood, M.A. of Pembroke college, 
Oxford, where he gained a place in the third class in Lit Sum. in 1829, is now 
vicar of Penmark, Glamorganshire ; and his third brother, John Yorke Wood, 
is a surgeon at Cheltenham, and, like his eldest brother, skilful in the treatment 
of diseases of the mind. 


Daniel Doming. 

He wu admitted L.S.A. in 1834 and M.B.O. Sorg. London, in 1835, and setUed at 
Swinton. There he praotieed as a sux^eon sacceasfolly nntil biB death, on the 
5th January 1868. He was a pleasant and«miable man, a very frequent attend- 
ant at the annirersary meetings of the old scholars — being Tioe-president in 
1858 —and is remembered for the kindness and consideration which he showed 
for those whose position in life was not that of affluence. His professional and 
gratuitous aid was always at their serrice. He was honorary surgeon to the 
46th Lancashire royal rolunteers (Ecdes, Swinton and Fendlebury), and was 
buried with military honours in Worsley churchyard, a reiy large attendance of 
people of all ranks testifying to the respect in whio}i he was held by the inhabit- 
ants of tbe district where he had practised for upwards of thirty years. In one 
of the Manchester papers of January nth 1868, there was a descriptire record 
of his burial. 

He married a daughter of Mr. Thomas Longshaw, cotton spinner and manufao- 
turer, of Fendlebury, and left three sons and two daughters.

The father of this schokr is wronglj described as malUter. The mistake is sap- 
posed to hare arisen from the occupation of the house, in which he lired, after his 
decease, by a retired com merchant and maltster. 

John Hanrey Ashworth, the younger of the two sons of John Ashworth, esq. 
(see Burke's Landed Gentry^ edit. 1863), and nephew of Richard Johnson Dayentry 
Ashworth, esq., barrister^t-law, of Strawberry hill, near Bfanchester, was bom at 
EUand, in the West riding of York, in the year 1795. His father, who was buried 
at EUand, died whilst this son was rery young, and at his death the son went to 
reside with his uncle and guardian. He was in the house of the high master for seTen 
years, took part in the public speech day of 1813, and in 18 14 was entered as a com- 
moner at UniTcrsity college, Oxford. In the following year he was elected a schokr 
on the foundation of John Frestone, esq., who endowed three scholarships for natives 
of Yorkshire. He graduated B.A. on the 20th February 18 19, and MJL on the 
17th NoTcmber 1825. In 1819 he was ordained deacon, and in July following priest 
by letters dimissory from the bishop of Oxford, to enable him to stand for the one 
fellowship at Magdalen college appropriated to the natives of the county of Yoik. 
Failing of his election there, he was licensed to the sole charge of the small parish 
of Hethe, near Bicester, Oxfordshire, and in the following year became curate of 
S. Mary's church, Rochdale. He soon aft»r retired from actiye clerical duty, and 
for some years resided at Berwick lodge, near Henbury, Gloucestershire, and after- 
wards at East Woodhay, in Hants, where he purchased an estate, acting as a ma- 
giatrate, as chairman of the board of guardians, and as chaplain to the late earl of 

At the time of the Irish famine in 1845-46 he visited Ireland, penetrating into the 
remotest districts of the south and west, and was elected fellow of the Hibernian G^eo- 
logical society. At the request of the late earl of Devon he threw his notes into a 
popular form, and in 1851 published the same under the title of The Saxon in 
Ireland^ which in a short time passed through three editions. Under the incum- 
bered estates* act he purchased the estate of Doona castle and Oroy lodge, with the 
salmon fishery of the Ballycroy river, so admirably pourtrayed by Maxwell in his 
interesting work. The WUd Sports of the West ; and here Mr. Maxwell resided 


sometime, and wrote the aboye-mentioned work. Mr. Ashworth afterwards pur- 
chased the old castle and domain of Craggan, near Kilkeshen in county Clare, restored 
the ancient fortress, and for a time made his residence there. He is, I beliere, still 
living, and was in 187 1 taking temporary duty in the parish of Folksworth, near 
Peterborough. He married, on the i6th February 1821, Mary, eldest daughter of 
Thomas Hippon YaTasour, esq., of Rochdale, who died many years ago, s.p.

of a then celebrity of Manchester, the rey. Joshua Brookes. (See "Register^ yol. i. pp.

Edward Foulkes, the father, was well known as an attorney in Manchester. He 
Uyed at Eodes for the greater part of his life, but latterly in Cross lane, where he died 
more than twenty years ago. He married Mary Falkner, an illegitimate daughter of 
Thomas Falkner Phillips, a Manchester merchant, by whom he had two sons, the 
scholars here recorded, John and Edward Waller Foulkes. Afler living ten years 
with his wife they separated, on the ground of incompatibility of temper. He then 
married a second wife, and was tried for bigamy at the Mold assizes on the loth and 
I ith of April 1807. He conducted his own defence with great skill, but he was found 


guilty and Mntenoed to twelve months' imprisonment and to pay a fine of lool. A 
report of his trial was printed and published, and it u one of the Manchester eauies

William Bead left school in 18 14, and became a tobacco manufacturer in S* 
Mary's gate, Manchester, but his tastes were by no means for mercantile matters, and, 
partly through the influence of the late rev. Hugh Stowell, he was induced to give 
up his business, and with a view of taking holy orders entered S. John's college, Cam- 
bridge, in 1 841, and graduated A.B. in 1845 and A.M. in 1848. It was remarkable 
that father and son should be at the same time undergraduates of the same college, 
engaged in the same studies, and alike looking forward to ordination, in due season, 
as clergymen of the church of England. He was ordained deacon in 1845 and priest 
in 1846, by the bishop of Chester, to the curacy of S. John's, Manchester, and was in 
1852 appointed incumbent of the chapel of ease at Worthing in Sussex, where he is 
now resident. 

Mr. Bead, who occasionally attended the meetings of the old scholars, was vice- 
president in 1841. He is a fellow of the Boyal astronomical and microscopical 
societies, and is the author of some papers on educational and astronomical subjects, 
as well as of some occasional sermons. In the "ManehMter Courier of 1 9th October 
1867, there appeared a reprint of an interesting letter to the Sovthport Visitor^ 
by Mr. Seijeant Wheeler, Q.C., descriptiye of Worthing, its chapel of ease and the 
incumbent thereof. 

For two sons of this scholar, see pp. 248, 263. A third son, Henry, admitted at 
a later date, graduated A.B. of S. John's coUege, Cambridge, 1855, of which college 
he was a scholar, and is now rector of a church in South Australia.

It is an old custom at Brasenose college on ShroTe Tuesday, one of the gaudy 
days, for a copy of rerses to be written by one of the undergraduates in praise of 
Brasenose ale. These verses are printed by the butler of the college, and a list of the 
authors has been preserred from a remote date : and although the Burton brewers 
hare almost driven their Oxford rivals from the field, and three or four years ago 
enquiries at " the buttery" for a glass of real '*home*brewed" were made in vain, the 
special barrel for Shrove Tuesday has always been brewed in the college, and the old 
custom of the annual verses is still preserved. 

The following is a copy of those written in 18 15, of which this scholar was the 
author : 



Verse* on Breuenose Ale, 18 15. 

Ye eWish ITaiadSi who delight to lare 
Your auburn treeeee in the lambflwool wave, 
Who, like the hags of old, a hellish train, 
Biot on broomsticks o*er the student's brain, 
When the glad wretch in ale libations deep 
Hies him to "tricks that make the angels weep, 
Gire me one Bitian tipple from your bowl,* 
And in the Nectar deluge flood my soul ! 

For now the muse, with retrospectiye gaze, 
Turns to forgotten scenes, to bye-past days. 
And, peering thro* the mist of time, can trace 
The grim gaunt shadows of that matchless race 
Which erst old Brasenose, thro' the midnight damp. 
Fed with thy ale their intellectual lamp. 
Yes, in that golden age, each classic sot 
Worshipped in turn the volume and the pot ; 
This stored his mind with science and with art, 
That ope'd the softer yirtues of his heart ; 
And when to soothe his ills the first might fail. 
There was a blessed anodyne in ale. 

And ye, the pictured worthies of our hall, 
Whose antique forms these pleasing dreams recall. 
In bosoms warm'd like yours, is shown full well 
The magic influence of the cellar spell ; 
And when for Brasenose ale I raise my Toioe, 
Attest it, gracious Duchess, thrifty Joyce. 
Last, but not least, amid the patron throng 
Whose yirtues claim the honours of my song, 
Hail, bounteous Betty ! f whose unpictur'd fame 
Shall live coeval with each prouder name ; 
And envy's self shall laud these grateful lines, 
When the Scout tipples, and the Tutor dines ; { 
When the flrst's visage shows a deeper dye. 
And roguish devils wanton in his eye. 

* " Tum BitisD dedit increpitans." 

t Mrs. Elisabeth Morley of blessed memory. She has not been deemed worthy of 
a picture. 

t This alludes to her legacies of a dinner to the fellows, and a jollification to the 
servants of Brasenose college. 



Then long inaj here the «le-oharged tankurda ehine, 
Long may the Hop-plant triumph o*er the Yine ! 
Long maj this riyal of Plena's spring 
To Fame's hright shrine its hlushing rot'ries bring ! 
Long may it swell the olasses of oar schools, 
A glorious recipe for curing fools ! !

died, unmarried, on the 9th December i8a6, and was buried in S. Mary's churchyard, 
Manchester. He was the elder of two sons, his brother dying in infimoy. 

Mr. William Thackeray is spoken of as a man of exemplary character, and as 
much beloTed. Some pleasing rerses were written by the late canon Stowell to his 
memory ; and among school exercises preserred by my father there is a copy of Tcrses 
which appear to hare been inserted in the Manchetter Chroniele at the time of his

This entry ought to be Thomas Hilton. 

He was bom on the 22nd May 1804, and on leaying school was articled to his 
father and admitted an attorney in Michaelmas term 1826, and has been in practice 
in Manchester erer since. In 1839, when Manchester was incorporated and a com- 
mission of the peace granted to it, Mr. Higson was appointed the first derk to the 
justices, and his portrait, painted at their request, hangs in the magistrates' room of 
the new police and sessions courts recently opened. 

Mr. Higson, who resides at Beddiffe, Alderley Edge, married, first, on the 30th 
August 1836, Margaret, eldest daughter of Mr. Samuel Barton, surgeon, of Man- 
chester (see p. 230), by whom he has two sons and one daughter; and secondly, on 
the 8th September 1863, Louisa Mary, eldest daughter of the lat« Francis Bush, esq., 
of Dublin, by whom he has one son.

He was intended for the medical profession, but abandoned it for newspaper and 
literary work. He died in London in 1854.

He was twice married. His first wife, married on the loth September 1835, 
(whose elder sister married John Moss Kirkman, see p. 194), was Eliza, younger 
daughter of Mr. Bobert Harrison of Water street, Manchester, who died on the 5th 
October 1837, leaving one son, William Clowes Tate, now dead. By his second wife 
he has one son and two daughters now Hying.

The father was a manufacturer of silk smallwares, hat linings and trimmings, and 
nephew of Mr. Charles Newbeny, the founder of a firm suooessiyely known as Samuel 
Newberry and Co.; Newberry, Hoyle and Newbeny ; Hoyle and Newberry ; and now 
H. O. Newberry and Co. 

His son Thomas, the scholar, graduated of Queon*s college, Cambridge, A.B. 1826, 
A.M. 1830; and hayiDg been ordained, became in 1828 perpetual curate of Shipl^ 
with Heaton, in the parish of Bradford, Yorkshire, and afterwards rector of Hinton 
S. George, and rector of Seayington S. Michael, near Taunton, Somersetshire. He 
died on the 30th March 186 1, in his 58th year, leaying a widow, a son Frederick, and 


a daughter, all now living. There is a monument to him at Seayington (where he 
built excellent schools during his incumbency of fifteen years), and the inscription 
tpeala of a long and enfeebling illness which preceded hb death«

He was brought up for the legal profession but ncTer practised, and, like others 
of the &mi]y, has given his attention to literary pursuits. He is still living.

I am indebted to the rer. Bichard Loxham for the following notice, extracted 
from the catalogue of the first exhibition of the works of local artists, living and de- 
ceased, at the opening of the new wing of Peel park museum, Salford. 

^^Jame9 Gregory Pollitt. A figure and portrait painter, bom in Manchester. 
His early days were passed in a Manchester warehouse, but such leisure as he could 
snatch from business was eagerly devoted to the study of drawing. (Tn the establish- 
ment of the Manchester royal institution, a munificent gift of costs from the antique 
and the works of Canova, was made thereto by Jonathan Hatfield, esq. These casts 
were temporarily deposited in a yault under the Portico library, which was subse- 
quently fitted up for study, and was the first artistic academy established in the town. 
Here PoUitt studied as an amateur, and gained considerable elementary knowledge. 
He was, however, imable to emancipate himself from the trammels of business, and 
it was not until about the year 1836 that we fiud him a professed artist. He painted 
many fancy subjects of rustic figures, some of life-size, characterized by great breadth 
of treatment, fine pencilling and some invention, and was fast rising into lucrative 
employment as a portraitist when his death in 1843 added another name to the long 
list of geniuses nipped in the bud." Eleven subjects in the exhibition above referred 
to were from the pallet of this artist. The name of the lady whom he married was

lAnes om leaving Manchester school. 
When ripening years demand no more 

The gentle aid instruction yields, 
When first we hasten to explore 

The world's unknown, untrodden fields, 
With yaried thought the heart looks back, 

On boyish days delights to dweU, 
With fear surveys life's dubious track. 
And trembles, as it sighs "farewell !" 

So I to thee, beloved pile. 

Look back, while memory yet can trace 
The scenes which time and care and toil 
Perchance hereafter may efface ; 




But still, though thej may dim the force 

Of reooUeotion's Tirid glow, 
They cannot quench the fruitful source 

From which my grateful feelings flow. 

Farewell ! the gentle ties, which fast 

Hare bound my heart to thee and thine. 
Must seyer ; we must part at last ; 

No more thy friendly band I join. 
Around thy dear and hallowed walls, 

O ! long may sport that joyous band, 
By turns obeying pleasure's calls 

And stricter wisdom's mild command. 

For me, where'er my steps msy go, 

Whate'er my future fate may be. 
The current of my thoughts shall flow 

With undiminbhed warmth to thee. 
If noisy cares my hours employ, 

Or mine be peaceful solitude, 
Alike my heart shall yield with joy 

The tribute of its gratitude. September 21, 1822. 

'* O domus antiqua ! quam bono dominaru domino." 

I stand and gaze upon thee, ancient pile. 

Thou first friend of my youth, thou best of friends ! 

Thou kind instructor, — scene of early joys ! 

Is it then come to this, to say — Farewell ! 

Must I no more seek my well known recess 

Familiar as a brother, where I sate 

Upon the carved oak bench, notched with names 

Of inmat'Cs who like me haye passed away. 

But left their fond memento here behind ? 

Dear characters ! some hands that traced ye may be cold 

And dead, but those who liye would not 

Erase ye from the world. And must I hear 

No more the sounding hum, the half suppressed, 

Half uttered yoioes of the busy crowd? 

And shall I see no more thy whitened walls — 

Thy panels dim with age — the hundred things 

On which my eye now rests, speaking as 'twere 

With eloquent silence to me P 

I sought thee young, and thou didst pour into 


My careless, heedless ear the bitter sweet 

Of knowledge, which I relished not ; it passed 

Then by me like a summer's dream, forgot, 

TJnthought of on the mom : — but time staid not 

Eren for me, and so he rolled on. 

And as I grew, I grasped at more, my mind 

Was changed, and I did Iotc thee and thy precepts. 

And there was one, whose mild and gentle sway, 
Whose kind attention, and whose manners bland 
Endeared all to him, — his deep mind was stored 
With erudition and with ancient lore — 
And with him I did cull the honeyed sweets 
Of gone antiquity — and he was lored 
With chastened reverence, for his grateful flock 
Forgot the master while they found the friend.

I turn me back unto those happy days 

When life's young flowers were opening, purest, fairest. 

And pleasure beamed in hopes entwining rays 

With soft reflected lustre. The bright sun 

Of happiness shone on me, and the hand. 

The fairy hand of joy strewed the gay path 

With flowers. Now I turn me forward, and 

Disjointed, wrenched from thee, my peaceful home, 

My hayen, where my hopes and cares all centred, 

I seem a desolate, solitary thing 

Moving amid the mighty stream of life. 

Farewell, then, loved spot ! Farewell to thee, 

Protector of my youth ! I sorrowing part 

With the dear scene my heart has loved so well. 

And when in after times I look on thee 

And find the faces changed, the tenants gone, 

But thou the same as when thou didet of erst 

Shield me beneath thy fond and covering wing, 

m think of what thou wast to me. 

Farewell, old friend of youth ! a last farewell ! 

When I forget thee may I be forgotten. August 13, 1822.

He died suddenly at Middleton hall, on the 2nd April 2872, from an apoplectic 
eexsure, which proved fatal before medical assistance could be procured. He was a 
magistrate for the counties of Warwick and Stafford, a man highly respected and Terj 
popular in the neighbourhood where he lived. 


Page 131. — Thomas Gilbert Ainsworth, 

In the Autumn of 1828, in companj with hie brother, William Harriaon Aids- 
worth, Thomas Gilbert made a rapid tour through Belgium and up the Bhine. A 
few extracts from his note book appear in the following summary of their trarels. 

Travelling on the Continent, forty years ago, was not quite so easy and expe- 
ditious as in these railroad days, but it was quite as agreeable, and the two young men 
greatly enjoyed their trip. It will be seen that they lost no time on the road. Start- 
ing from DoTer on Saturday, August 30th 1828, after an uncommonly fine passage^ 
they reached Calais in the afternoon, dined at Dessin*s famous hotel, and set off al 
ten o'clock at night by diligence for Dunkirk, arriving there at four in the morning. 
After only an hour's delay, they stepped on board the Treckschnit for Bruges. This 
was a novel mode of conveyance, but they preferred it to the hot and disagreeable 
diligence in which they had passed the night. The quaint and picturesque old city 
of Bruges delighted them, but did not detain them long, and they were still better 
pleased with Antwerp, where they first made their acquaintance with the master-piece 
of Bjibons. Thomas Gilbert Aiusworth, who was a lover of art, was lost in admira- 
tion of the Crucifixion of the incomparable painter, and dilates upon the tremendous 
expression of power displayed in the dying agony of the impenitent thief. While 
alluding to the charming chateaux which he saw near Mechlin, this ominous remark 
occurs, "Began to experience a dizziness and pain in the head, which I attribute to 
the whirl aud constant excitement I have gone through since I left England." With 
Brussels he was enchanted, and we find him jotting down his notes while seated on a 
bench in an avenue of the park. " No public promenade can be more agreeable, and 
indeed everything is pleasant about Brussels. The city has a livelier aspect than any 
place I have yet seen ; the tabic d'hote at the hotel de Flandre, where we are stayiog, 
is first-rate, and the company extremely good. Visited the royal palace— apartments 
superb — a noble B>embrandt in the queen's rooms charmed me. Drove to Laehen, the 
king's country residence, and were shown Napoleon's cabinet, and Josephine's rooms. 
Apartments inferior in splendour to those of the palace, but the grounds delightful 
Beserved the cathedral of St. Gudule for the evening, and were conducted over it by a 
monk, who brought to mind the friar in the * Sentimental Journey.' " Waterloo occu- 
pied part of the next day. After surveying the battle-field, ascending the enormous 
mound, and dining at La Haye Sainte, they started for Namur. ** Left Namur at six 
in the morning for Li^ge. View obscured by a dense fog that enveloped the Meuse, 
but later on the vapour cleared off and the day became brilliantly fine. Scenery on 
the banks of the Meuse remarkably picturesque. Very striking is the situation of the 
chateau de Choquier on the summit of a lofty and precipitous rock. At Li^ge a 
grand f6te going on in honour of Gr^try the composer, who was a native of the place.'* 
Aix la Chapelle was the neiit point, and thence they proceeded by schnell-post to 
Cologne. Almost smothered by dust on the journey, their first business was to seek 
a bath in the Rhine, and they found it near the Bridge of Boats. Cologne, with its 
narrow dirty streets, offered few attractions, and they left it next morning, without 
regret, by the early boat for Coblenz. " At last we are on the Bhine; what a glorious 


liyer! Tho sight of the castled rocks and the picturesque ruins quite inspires me — 
especially when the inspiration is heightened by a bottle of hocheimer. Left Goblenz 
by the first steamboat. A black cloud, hanging over Ehrenbreitstein, added to the 
effect of the stupendous fortress. Charmed with Stolzenfels, Bheinfels and St. Goar. 
Beauties of scenery enhanced by a few bumpers of excellent Rhenish. Did not stop at 
Mayenoe, but posted with Mr. Leopold Beiss, whom we had met on board the steamer, 
to Frankfort, where we arriyed at midnight, and put up at the magnificent hotel de 
Russie. Mr. Reiss, who is a young Gkrman merchant established at Manchester, 
showed us great attention and hospitality during our brief stay at Frankfort. Left 
for Wiesbaden, and put up at the Quatre Saisons, the salle>k-manger of which is im- 
mense, and will accommodate fire hundred guests. Gardens and promenades deli- 
eioiXs — but the place quite empty. Tried the baths and experimented upon the 
waters. Posted to Schwalbach — had a most delightful ride through a mountainous 
district. Ascended a hill whence, it is said, the finest riew in Germany is to be ob- 
tained —could trace all the windings of the Rhine, with Mayence and its cathedral in 
full yiew, and the Yosges mountains in the distance. A splendid panorama ! Again 
my poetical aspirations were awakened, but they found no yent. Schwalbach is de- 
lightfully situated in a yalley, and has some agreeable promenades. The waters re- 
semble those of Seltzer, and are materially improyed, like Seltzer water, by the addi- 
tion of a little cognac." Our trayellers proceeded by Ems to Coblenz, and thence 
along the banks of the riyer by Stolzonfels, Bingen and Rudesheim to Mayenoe. " At 
Mayence we engaged a yoiturier for three days to take us to Heidelberg, and return 
by Darmstadt. Slept the first night at Mannheim — yisited the chateau and the 
Jesuit's church. Chateau large, and containing many fine apartments. Among the 
pictures found some admirable examples of the Dutch school. Went out of our way 
to yisit Schwetzingen, the Versailles of Germany. The gardens enchanting, and em- 
bellished with temples, fountains, and a curious Turkish mosque. Reached Heidel- 
berg about twelye. Nothing can be finer than the situation of the castle — nothing 
more picturesque than the ruins. The yiew from the terrace along the yalley of the 
Neckar is extraordinarily fine. We had not time enough to enjoy it fully, but its 
beauties will eyer dwell on my memory. Slept at Hoppenheim, the accommodation 
being yery indifferent. Started betimes next morning, and while pursuing our way 
along the Bergstrasse, passed Melibocus. Arriyed at Darmstadt about eleyen, and 
were much struck with the town. The chateau contains a noble picture-gallery. 
After yisiting it we were fortunate enough to witness an inspection of troops by the 
grand duke. Our yoiturier, who was yery ciyil and obliging, fulfilled his engagement 
to the letter, and brought us back to Mayence on the evening of the third day. The 
weather was extremely bright and fine throughout tho excursion, but the nights were 
cold. Left Mayenoe next morning by early steamboat. Among the passengers were 
lord Seaford, captain Angerstein and young Wilmot Horton. Swept past castles, 
yine-clad hills and picturesque towns in our rapid descent of the riyer, and after a 
long and most enjoyable day reached Cologne at eight o'clock. We had intended to 
return by Rotterdam, but finding that a delay of a couple of days must necessarily 


occur at Golognci we elected to go back by BroBBels. Our journey to Calais waa ae- 
oompliBhed in four days by diligence, including a halt at Brussels. Pleasant com- 
panions helped to beguile the tedium of the journey. At Dunkirk a painful incident 
occurred whioh impressed us botb. We had mounted to the top of a lofty tower near 
the church, which commands a fine yiew of the town, harbour and surrounding 
country, and were descending the winding steps, when a man, eridently in a Tcry ex • 
cited state, pushed yiolently past us, rousing our anger. A few minutes afterwards 
we learnt that th'e poor wretch had thrown himself from the summit of the tower, 
and dashed out his brains on the payement. Previously to committing this desperate 
act he had taken off his shoes — a common superstition. ' II avoU mange son hien,* 
remarked a bystander, who was gazing at the body. At Oalais we went to Dessin'a 
hotel, of course, and I was fortunate enough to bo lodged in Sterne's room. Next 
day we crossed the channel. Thus ended our pleasant tour."

Among the many exercises of this talented scholar thought worthy of preserration 
by his master, and still remembered by some of his cotemporaries, there is a trans- 
lation of the Itrsi Olympic of Pindar, which is too long for insertion here, but some 
few stanzas may be given as a specimen of his youthful powers as a scholar and poet : 

Strophe iH. 
Of all the blessings Jove hath given 

Unrivalled flows the crystal spring ; 

And, like the beacon^fires that fling 
Their glare athwart the midnight heaven, 

0*er every gem that charms the sight 

Shines gold, preeminenfcly bright : 

And if, my soul, thy pride desire 

Some combat worthy of thy lyre, 
As well, amid the blaze of noon. 

Thine eye might seek some glittering star. 

Whose feeble radiance from afar 
Might quench the splendour of the sun. 

As hope amid each storied name 
That fills the page of glory's roll 

To find a subject that might shame 
The blaze of Pisa's festival : 

When the sounding hymn they raise 

Echoing with the Thunderer's praise. 

When their steps have traced the road 
To conquering Hiero's rich and blest abode. 

Antistrophe isi. 
O'er Trinacria's fertile plains 
He with righteous sceptre reigns, 


Blending in his soul and face 
Eyepy yirtne, erery grace : 
Skilled to steal upon the heart 
With music's soft and melting art 
When, stretch'd around, a festire throng, 
We revel, with successiye song. 
Haste then, and seixe thy Doric lyre ! 
If themes like Pisa's plain of speed, 
And glories of the yictor steed 
Can touch its strings with fire : 
Where hy the margin of Alpbeus' tide. 
Scorning the spur, he ran his race of pride ; 
First at the goal, receired the rich reward. 
And hore it, breathless, to his Syracusan lord. 
• • • • ' 

Antiiirophe 4/A 
Lost in joy and glorious ease 
No ephemeral laurels these ; 
But, soaring o'er the waste of time 
Highest to which man can dimb ! 
Thus, my lyre, triumphant now, 

Weare the wreath for Hiero's brow. 
The wreath of Doric song, to grace 
The yictor in the equestrian race ; 
And well I know thy strings will ne'er 
Be tuned to one, whose princely name 
Shines brighter in the list of fame. 
Or owns a dynasty more Adr. 
These blessiugs, Hiero, the powers of hearen 
That guard thy weal with liberal hand haye giyen, 
And soon, if still their beams benignant shine. 
My prescient eye foretells a brighter day is thine. 

Epode 4<A. 
Where on Cronium's sunny side 

I raise the hymn thy deeds supply. 
When foremost, in that hour of pride. 

Across the plain thy car shall fly ; 
On me indeed the muses shower 

Their choicest gifts, persuasiye darts, 
While others boast a nobler power 
Acquired by other, higher arts. 
But far aboTO all meaner gifts of fate 
Shines the proud dignity of royal state — 


Such be thy doom — be mine ihe humbler lot 
To dwell with those^ who once, like thee, hare won 
The wreath of fame — that wreath I enyy not, 
While Greece reveres me as her eldest son.

Mr. Charles Samuel Simms, brother to this scholar, and the printer of the pub- 
lications of the Chetbam society almost from its commencement in 1844, died at 
Higher Broughton, Manchester, on the 27 th February 1872, aged 63, and was buried 
at Kersal Moor church. In the Manchester Courier of the 2nd March 1872, will be 
found a very interesting notice of his life from the pen of the president of the Chetham 
society : and in the report read at the annual meeting of the council on the 21st of 
the same month the services which he rendered to the society are referred to in terms 
of highest commendation. 

Mr. Edward Simms has recently published 7^ firtt six hooks of the Iliad of 
Somer^ translated into fourteen syllable verse, with preface and notes. Stanford, 
London, 1873 : and in this publication refers to the accuracy of his brother Charles's 
translation of the first book (which the letter published in 1866), the substance and 
features of which he has retained in his own edition. 

Many of the poems, which appear in the Bath and Bristol Mctgazine and bear 
the initials of this scholar, were school exercises. Among them may be mentioned a 
translation of Strada*s Luseinia et Fidicinis Certamen, to which a preliminary essay 
is prefixed in the Magazine. The verses on " The Temple of Vesta of Tivoli*' were 
sent in for the Newdigate prize at Oxford, and though not successful were rewarded 
by Dr. Toumay, the warden of Wadham college, with a gift of 20^ The following 
extracts from a school exercise on Syracuse, a poem of more than three hundred lines, 
not printed in the Bath and Bristol Magazine, are a fair specimen of the youthful 
powers of this scholar, one of several cotemporaries remarkable for their poetical 
talents : 

Land of past glories ! who can look on thee 
Nor kindle at the gaze, fair Sicily ! 
Who trace the blazoned annals of thy fame 
Nor own the magic of thy deathless name ? 


The soft low breeze that sighs thy rales along 

Seems rich with sounds of eloquence and song : 

Bach hill's green side, each fountain's sacred spring 

Through fern and wild flowers gently murmuring, — 

Each ruined steep, each lime or ohesnut bower 

Bears the bright impress of the poet's power, 

And to the eye of Fancy doth unveil 

War's dauntless deeds, or Love's Tolujptuous tale. 

But where are they, in strife and carnage tried. 

By the lone glen, or on the chainless tide, 

Sons of the sires, who made e'en Athens flee 

In panic flight from stem Epipol», 

And, nerved with patriot might, to ruin hurled 

The vaunting conquerors of a vanquished world ? 

Still may'st thou boast, fair Isle, the purple bloom 
Of thy young vines, thy citron's soft perfume. 
And all the varied gifts which Nature's hand 
Has fondly lavished on thy favoured land. 

Are thy sons the same ? 

No ! changed in mind, in mien, in all but name. 
E'en as a stately tree, within whose breast 
The fell worm creeps, that knows nor ruth, nor rest, 
Feels to its utmost limb the secret bane 
And still lives on, but never thrives again ; 
While its scorched leaves and branches' fitful sway 
Which fain would hide, but serve to mark decay. 
• • • • • 

Theee valedictory stanzas are by the same scholar : 

Lives there a man, around whoso callous heart 

Affection ne'er hath twined her silken tie, 
Who from each, well-known scene can bear to part, 

Without one tear, without one grateful sigh P 

It cannot be. Beneath the rudest form 

Still will the tide of feeling burst its way, 
As through the darkness of the wintry storm 

Some struggling beam of sunshine oft will stray. 

Gould I then e'er be silent in thy praise, 

Wlio hast been all my spirit's home to meP 
Nor wake to speech my wild but heartfelt lays, 

Nor cull their fondest, sweetest notes for thee P 



For thee^ blest home, where erst mj youthful lyre 

Caught the first sporklings of poetic song — 
Thy kindly inflaenoe fanned the generoos fire : 

To thee its erery grace and power belong. 

For, nestled in thy breast, my mind's young eye 

Learned the fair page of yirtuous lore to scan, 
And trace, in annals of bright years gone by, 

Those glorioilb acts which dignify the man. 

Thy counsels taught me how to shun the mase 

Of sin and death, by slarish millions trod, 
And humbly look, with Faith's unsullied gase, 

From earth and earthly feelings up to Gk>d. 

Mansion of peace ! perchance in after years 

Thy shape may glide some gloomy thoughts between. 
And chase away the bitterness of tears 

By fond remembrance of what ouce had been. 

Oft may I sit, when Twilight's gentle power. 

Stealing along with steps of purple dye, 
Bears on its wing the consecrated hour 

Of Brening time, — the hour of Memory ; 

And picture forth upon the vacant air ^ 

Sach well-known spot, which springs upon the view 
In yisioned beauty ; till the objects there 

Seem starting into life, and all but true ; 

Those gleaming eyes, yet strangers to distress. 

Those smiles of mirth, that deck each stainless brow, 
Those busy forms of thoughtless happiness, . 

Dancing in buoyant revelry, as now ; I 

Or when, to duty called, they take their stand 

Around the master's seat, and con with care 
Th' appointed task, or raise to Heaven the hand 

In supplicating guise at daily prayer : 

All these will live again in Fancy's glance, | 

Where'er my feet may roam, whatever clime 
Beoeive me ; passing years will but enhance 

Their value, mellowed by the hand of time. I 

Scene of my brightest and my happiest hours. 

By friendship hallowed, ere the world could bring 
Its blighting canker on life's tender fiowers, 

Or stay the soul's warm gushings at their spring.

What mingled thoughts of lore, and hope, and pain.

He died at Gheetham Hill on the 22nd May 1872, aged 64, and was buried at S. 
Mark's church, of which he had been the beloved pastor for the long period of forty- 
two years. An account of his funeral appeared in the Manekeater Courier of May

had the unmistakeable stamp of a gentleman in his appearance and manners, and 
there was something peculiarly pleasing in his conversation and address. Possessing 
a rich original vein of playful humour, which might be considered to be an hereditary 
property, he always used it so as to delight, but never so as to wound or to conduce 
to the annoyance of those who listened to him. From envy, hatred, malice, and un- 
charitableness probably no man who ever lived was more entirely firee. As a clergyman, 
during the whole period of his long incumbency of forty-two years, he acquired and 
deserved the love and respect of bis parishioners, and the universal regret which his 
lamented decease has occasioned is an ample proof how well his character and merits 
were understood. In giving effect to our liturgical services, and particularly to the 
finest of them all, the burial service, ho was very successful. We have been present 
when it has been delivered by some great lights and ornaments of the Church, but 
we never yet met with any one who did more ample justice to it than Mr. Ethelston. 
Mr. Ethelston was a member of the Chetham society, and was, with the exception 
we believe of Mr. Corser, the oldest member of that excellent and now venerable 
institution, the Manchester Clerical book society." 

Mr. H. Ethelston was a frequent attendant at the anniversary festivals, and was 
the president of that held in 1844, and loeum tenensiot Mr. Thomas de Quincey in 
the same office in 1857.

day of 1825, reciting Byrom's well-known poem 'Hhe Disappointed Husband." I 
have not succeeded in tracing him through after years. The following record relates 
to his mother :

And therefore not a golden year,

And hold right high their head ;

Some say the Church is better for^t, 

Some say she's gone to rack ; 
And clear it is, the preachers of ^

he sailed was wrecked io Table bay, on the coast of South Africa, not far from Cape 
Town, when he lost all his property, though the passengers and crew were sayed and 
landed on Cape Town beach. The shore was crowded with people who came down to 
see the wreck, and among the rest a former intimate friend of Sampson Middleton, who 
had gone to South Africa in quest of health some years before. He at once recognised 
his shipwrecked townsman, sorry figure though he was, minus all clothes but shirt 
and trousers, took him home, refreshed him, *' gave bread to the hungry and coyered 
the naked with a garment," and procured for him the yery next morning the post of 
manager to the South African laboratory, which happened then to be vacant. Some 
years later, with the aid of friends whom he had made in Cape Town, he commenced 
business as a merchant storekeeper at Port Blizabeth, Algoa bay, in which he pros- 
pered, and became an influential merchant and useful respected member of the colony.

\ James Weatheriey, 

Whose name is omitted in the Register, appears from his autobiography, now 
existing in manuscript in the possession of the president of the Cbetham society, to 
haye been a scholar in the years 1803 and 1804. He became a well-known old book* 
seller, neyer Tory prosperous, sometimes keeping a stall and sometimes a shop, 
according to the state of his circumstances, in different parts of Manchester. He 
died in i860, at the age of 66 or thereabouts, and his last location was at the bottom 
of John Dalton street. From long experience he had acquired an instinctire know* 
ledge of rare books, though no great prizes appear to haye come in his way, the 
Caxtons, first Shakespeares and Sditionea principes falling into the hands of other 
more fortunate or more enterprising dealers in books. Still, but for his irregularities 
and habits of drinking, he might haye succeeded in placing himself in comfortable 
circumstances, for he was popular amongst book purchasers and had many oppor- 
tunities of making his business sufficiently remuneratiTe to enable him to provide for 
old age. He died however in abject poverty, leaving little or nothing behind him 
except the autobiography before mentioned, which is a yerj curious record of his 
progress through life, and contains much about Manchester and his contemporaries 
which is by no means unworthy of preservation. He had been an attentive observer 
of what was going on in his native place, and his memory was very retentive to the 
last. C] 

Samuel Bamford, 

This very remarkable man, probably the honestest of all the leaders in the political 
agitation, which caused for some years such alarm throughout Lancasliire, and cul- 
minated in the Manchester *' Peterloo meeting" of i6th Auj?ust 18 19, records in his 
EarUf Days that he was admitted to the school, and mentions some of his dass-fellows, 
who are to be found in the second volume of the Register. In pp. 79-93 of his 
Sarly Days will be seen an amusing account of his admission to the lower school, of 
his master the rev. Thomas G^askell, and of his holiday afternoon rambles amid the 
then rural scenes of Gheetwood, Kersall, Crumpsall and Broughton. He never 
reached the upper school, for his father, to the son's disappointment, had no wish for 
him to learn Latin, which was held to be " of use only to doctors, lawyers and par- 
sons." It were wrong for one, whose motives are more fairly judged after the lapse of 
many years, to be passed over without some permanent notice. Samuel Bamford, un- 
like others with whom he was connected politically, was no advocate for physical force, 



but rather sought to teaoh all classes their relative duties. The best interests of those, 
in whoee ranks he was bom, were near his heart ; for he has placed on record liis belief, 
that " instead of wishing to create sudden changes, and to overthrow institutions, 
it were better that ignorance alone were pulled down,*' and that self-control and self- 
amendment are the onlj solid " basis of all public reform." A better sketch of his 
life and character cannot be given than that which appeared in the Manehegter 
Chtardian of the i6th April 187 a, for a copy of which I am indebted to Mr. Darid 
Kelly of Stretford, who in this, and other instances, has given me useful information : 

"In the death of Samuel Bamford, at his residence at Harpurhey on Saturday, 
this community has lost from the humbler ranks of life one of the oldest of its local 
celebrities. For some years past the infirmities of advanced age hare withdrawn from 
him public attention. But half a century ago, when the sea of politics was stirred 
with breezes that now it seldom knows, Bamford was a noted man, of rare energy and 
power, and gifted with many of the peculiar talents of a popular leader. Born into 
the circle of the labouring classes, which then were oppressed with a sense of hard- 
ships and wrongs, attributable, as they believed, to partial and corrupt gOTcmmenty 
Bamford grew up into manhood, conscious of superior mental capacity, and readily 
attracted to the discussion of any political scheme propounded as a panacea for the 
sufferings of the people. He became a marked man, wielding considerable influence, 
and was selected by the goremment of the day for punishment along with Henry 
Hunt and other agitators for reform. Bamford's poetical and literary talents greatly 
contributed to his democratic influence ; and, if it were only as one of the minor 
songsters of his country, his death would at least deserve a passing notice. 

** Samuel Bamford was bom at Middlcton in the year 17 S8. His father was a man 
of parts, and from the position of a labourer worked his way into the mastership of a 
school, and eventually to the governorship of the Salford workhouse. Young Barn- 
ford's school days were early brought to a close, and he was sent when quite a boy to 
Manchester to learn weaving under his brother. His active mind had made sufilcient 
acquirement — scanty as his opportunities bad been — to enable him to read and 
write with ease, and accidentally meeting with Pope's translation of the Iliad and 
Milton's poems, his mind received an impetus which led to a rapid development of 
his literary tastes. He copied many hundred pages of Milton, of whom throughout 
life he remained a devout worshipper. After various changes Bamford engaged in the 
coasting trade between South Shields and London; but some five or six Toyages 
wearied him of a sea life, and he left London to walk to Manchester, narrowly 
escaping on his way impressment for the naval service. He again obtained a situation 
in a warehouse, and in his leisure hours was a diligent reader, devoted especially at 
this time to the poems of Chatterton and Bums. 

** Shortly afterwards he married, and removed to his natire place. Here he em- 
barked with eager interest on the troubled ocean of politics. Suspicion, arrest* 
imprisonment followed ; and once more he was at home. Middleton was then the 
head quarters of the local reformers. He became a member of a committee formed 
to improve the representation of the people and secretary to the Hampden club. 


His unbounded pbysioal energy, his intellectual power, and the impetuonsneea of his 
moral nature now found a congenial sphere. He wrote and spoke and organized in- 
oessantly. He marshalled the Middleton contingent of the great army of reformers 
which concentrated at Feterloo on the memorable i6th of August 1819, and marched 
into the field at their head, his banner bearing the motto * Unity and Strength.' His 
account of the preparations for this great gathering forms one of the most graphic 
portions of his PasBages in the Life of a RadiodL. Bamford's experiences had greatly 
disheartened him. The access bis prominent position had giren him to the inner and 
priyate life of Henry Hunt especially, and of other leaders of the reform party, had 
led him to form a most unfavourable opinion of their consistency and chftraoter. 
Indeed he was at little pains to conceal his contempt for the insatiable Tanity, the sel* 
fishness and heartlessness of more than one who, with the people's name for erer on 
their lips, had little of his own simple readiness to suffer on their behalf, and to sacri- 
fice life's dearest treasures on the altar of principle. After many years of monotonous 
toil and not inconsiderable privations, a successful intervention on the part of some 
admirers of his abilities and sympathisers with his wrongs, obtained for him in the 
year 1852 a comfortable position as messenger in Somerset house, London. It was 
all but in name a sinecure, the duties being merely nominal [with a salary of about 
loo^ a year]. So far as the necessities of Ufe were concerned, Bamford was now in 
the enjoyment of larger means than he had ever before possessed. 

*' But a short experience satisfied him that he was out of his natural sphere. He 
chafed under the feeling that he was receiving money for a very inadequate return of 
work ; he did not like London people or London ways ; his heart was in Lancashire 
among his own folk, and he thought he could be more useful and happy there than in 
the uncongenial atmosphere of the great city. So, not a little to the chagrin of the 
kind friends who had secured for him that situation, he resigned it, and preferred 
more straightened resources with the society of old neighbours, to the material com- 
forts of a government appointment, with a mind discontented and duties that were 
irksome to his taste. 

*' From that time the poet-politician knew many dark and anxious days, relieved 
by kindly expressions of sympathy and the flattering notice and correspondence of 
several eminent literary men, amongst whom Thomas Carlyle was one of the most 
constant. For the last six or eight years a regular provision had been made for his 
simple wants by the generosity of a few friends, whose names wore studiously >.ept 
concealed bmxk the grateful and venerable recipient of their bounty. Dr. John Watts 
having kindly acted as their almoner and agent. 

"Bamford's literary productions are comprised in thrae volumes of autobiography, 
two of descriptive Walks in South Lancashire, and one of Poems. 

"His Earljf Da^ is a graphic and interesting account of his life up to the period 
of early manhood. It is written with transparent honesty, and with a frankness 
somewhat unusual in autobiography. His latter book, Paesaget m the lAfe of a 
Badioal^ is in many respects a remarkable literary effort. For simple^ strong and 
appropriate diction, it will favourably compare with the best of William Cobbett's 


writings, whilst it is permeated with a genial spirit for which the latter are certainly 
not remarkable. It met with warm commendation from the chief literary critics, and 
will remain an interesting and raluable contribution to local political history. The 
Walks in South Laneathire are somewhat desultory, but abound in happy illus- 
trations and acute remark. Of the Poems, perhaps the best is the ' Pass of Death,' 
written on the death of George Canning, and containing some stansas of considerable 
dramatic power. The ode ' To a Snowdrop* is an elegant poem ; whilst, for grotesque 
humour, ' Tim Bobbin's Graye ' will bear comparison with some of the comic pieces 
of Bobert Bums. 

" Samuel Bamford was a fine specimen of an English working man. Tall, broad- 
cbosted and burly in form, he had the air of command which fitted him, along with 
his great mental energy, to be a leader of his fellows. Experience taught him les- 
sons of moderation and wisdom, which, with the modesty of true manliness, he 
accepted, eren at the risk of apparent inconsistency. ' Time,' he says, ' the ameliorator 
of all things, has not passed him without learing some experience. The lessons of 
that severe handmaid, making him better acquainted with mankind and himself, hare 
somewhat matured his judgment and increased his charity ; changing also, he hopes for 
the better, some of his views both of men and things.' His best eulogium is supplied 
by his life and writings. He was honest, brave-hearted, proud, and sensitive some- 
times to a fault. He maintained a manly and courageous spirit even when the 
world's hard hand lay most hearily upon him. Ardent, enthusiastic, and not without 
the provocations of conscious injustice, he yet invariably denounced in unmeasured 
terms the suggestions of physical force, and never lost sight of the truth that all per- 
manent reforms result firom moral suasion alone. He did a good work in a difficult 
time and earned an honourable place in the ranks of political reform. He kept burn- 
ing the lamp of self-culture even in the gloom of a prison, and maintained the in- 
stincts of a naturally generous nature unperverted by oppression and wrong. The name 
of Samuel Bamford will ever deserve to be retained in the long and distinguished roll 
of * Lancashire Worthies.' " 

Samuel Bamford was buried in Middleton churchyard on the afternoon of the 
20th April 1872, with the honours of a public funeral, of which a very interesting 
report may be seen in the Manehetter Q-uardian of April a 2nd, and also in the Man'

David Stott, 

In the Manchester Historical Recorder ^ edit. 1862, p. 165, there is a brief notioe 
of this scholar, but his name is misprinted Solt inst^^d of Stott. 

He was born on the loth September 1779. and the son of Thomas Stott, &rmer 
and woollen manufacturer at Bipponden, near Halifax. His father removed to Man- 
chester about 1790, and sent his son to the grammar school, where he remained tiiree 
years, though his name does not occur in the Register. 

He was from early manhood a zealous promoter of Sunday schools, and tiie 

-founder of that which was connected with S. Paul's church, Manchester, which sub* 

sequently became, probably, the largest in England ; and formed, in my early days, 

and to the present day, so imposing a part in the annual procession of Sunday school 

scholars to the cathedral on Monday in Whitsun week. 

He died on the 26th February 1848, aged 68, and was buried in the churchyard 
of Bowdon, Cheshire. There is a monument to bim, in which his work is thus com- 
memorated : 

** He founded S. Paul's Sunday school, Bennett street, in the year 1801, and was 
permitted by the goodness of God to labour in the management of it until the last 
week of his life. He was also the originator of Sick and Burial societies in connexion 
with Sunday schools, and was a noble example of what may be effected by the influ- 
enoe of Christian principle, affection and perseyerance, when devoted to the service of 
the Saviour. 

'* His gentleness and devotion aptly fitted him for a Sunday school instructor. 
His benevolence and discretion enabled him to foster this institution, equally eminent 
for its usefulness and success. 

'* This tribute of affection is erected in veneration of his efforts and example by 
the visitors, teachers and friends of the said school." 

In an article which appeared in the Morning Chronicle in the year 1849, on " the 
cotton metropolis," in which mention was made of the origin and success of the Sun- 
day schools of Lancashire, there is the following passage : "One of the most renowned 
in the cause is an indefatigable worker of the name of Stott. For half a century this 
gentleman was the foremost champion of the Lancashire Sunday schools, and worked 
steadily on. * * * * The school to which he principally devoted himself opened with 
40 scholars. Its average number now is slightly over 3000."

This is, I think, the scholar of whom a notice is giren at p. 260. 

Page 6. — William Green, 

[You are quite correct in your surmise that he was a Manchester man, and edu- 
cated at the school. His death was recorded in Harrop's Mercury of the 13th May 
1823, as follows : '* On th« 28th ult., at the age of 62, Mr. William Oreen, the cele- 
brated artist of the Lakes, a gentleman much respected, and who has left a numerous 
family. He was a natire of this town, and resided here for many of the earlier years 
of his Ufe.** 

Ghreen took up his abode afterwards at Ambleside, and laboured assiduously in 
that ample field of beauty, grandeur and simplicity by which it is surrounded. It 
was his habit to spend whole days together, attended by one of his children, in the 
open air, engaged in sketching and colouring. Nothing in the shape of the picturesque 
seems to hare escaped his practised eye, firom the simple cottage to the broadest ex- 
panse of nature ; and most truthfully were the subjects he selected presented by his 
etching needle and palette. He used to obserre that it would occupy a man forty 
years thoroughly to explore and estimate the beauties of the northern Iske scenery. 

Any one who desires an estimate of his abilities should peruse a charming paper 
by Christopher North, in one of the earlier numbers of Blackwood, wherein '*oId 
Ebony" is pleased to decide that England has only possessed three genuine artists, 
and that one of these is William Ghreen. 

Ghreen published an immense number of subjects in raried sizes and style, firom 
the outline engraying to the sepia tint and coloured print. One set of sixty, of the 
latter kind, is perhaps hii most successful work. He was likewise the author of what 
is still by far the best and most minute Ghtide to the Lakes, Mountains and Scenery^ 
to which a long labour of lore dcTOted him. This was published in 2 toIs. 8to, at 
Kendal, in the year 18 19, and is embellished with some of the most salient of his 
highly characteristic sketches. 

Two of Mr. GFreen's daughters are resident in Liycrpool, and at the Christian 
Knowledge society's depot in that town, the art collector may still secure some of the 
products of the pencil of this charming and faithful delineator of nature. 

Mr. Green was cousin to Mr. Bernard Hartley Green of Salford [see Beyitier, 
ToL ii. p. 8], one of whose sons, Benjamin Hartley, engaged in tuition, was distin- 
guished as a French scholar, and ended his days among the people whose language he 
admired and cultiyated with eminent success. B. JL."] 

A son of Mr. Green was for some time a bookseller in Leeds, and published the 
Tolume of Seven Senmont preached at the consecration and reopening of the Parish 
Ckureh of Leeds in 184 1. He was, with his wife and family, rssiding at Stonnall, an 
adjoining parish to Aldridge, in the years 1856-58.

The following amusing letter from this scholar to his quondam sohoolfeOow, 
John Bagshaw, esq. (see Begiaier, p. 10), has been kindly placed in my hands by 
W. H. G. Bagshawe, esq., of Ford hall : 

" Dear sir, 

" The pines are most excellent, and the game wUl, I hare no doubt, arriTe in 
due time. I hope you will accept my best thanks for so handsome a present ; at the 
same time, as I hare really some little conscience, I must request that, if you should 
erer honor me in this way again, you will not be so extremely bountiful. Nothing 
would gire me greater concern than an apprehension that you may distress yourself 
by so much generosity. 

** You are right as to the identity of the knight. He receired his title from his 
majesty on the throne ; and as I had the honor of kissing hands next to him, and 
consequently stood close at his heels when the sword was laid on his shoulder, I 
oonceiyed that some sparks of his honor might have extended as far as me. How- 
ever, as you seem to haye no great yeneration for knighthood, I shall not endearour 
to demonstrate on the principles of electricity, or any other principles, that I am a 
knight. Tou would haye laughed, I think, if you had seen us at court, some of us 
most uncouthly figures, as you may suppose. However, tho* many, I have no doubt, 
thought that the king had as much to fear from us as from the mob, strange as it 
may seem, not one of us tumbled oyer his majesty, or even oyer any of his lords. 
This was the more to be apprehended, as the scene was really a very magnificent one, 
for it happened to be a very fuU ley^e day. 

" I am now in the full exercise of my proctorial functions, and as I have deter- 
mined never to make forcible entrance into a house without an application to the 
civil power, I shall not trouble you with any queries respecting the extent of my 
authority. I thank you however, kindly, for the assistance which you was so good 
as to o£fer. 

*' Our Christmas combination room opens on the 25th inst. Let me beg of you 
to come and spend the twelve days with us, if your engagements will allow it. I 


need not, I hope, say how much pleaeure this would give me. You shall hare a 
Toom in college, and be exactly one of us. If yon can accede to this request you will 
confer the greatest possible &TOur on 

your obliged and &ithful 
" St. John's, humble serrant,

forming him that the school meeting will be held at the Freemasons' tarem in 
Linooln's-inn fields on Tuesday April 14th, and that dinner will be on table exactly 
at 6 o'clock. The object of the meeting is to bring together sereral old friends who 
were associated in early life, and to pay that tribute of respect to a foundation under 
which many of them hare reoeired a considerable part of that education which has 
prored the means of their success afterwards. If Mr. Gbeenway should know any 
Manchester scholar who may not hare received intimation of the meeting. Dr. T^^t^affl 
will be particularly obliged by his communicating it to such gentleman.

Page 205. — Hugh Calveley, 

[This scholar was horn at Hantiogton, near Chester, and waa yonnger son of 
Mr. James Calveley, land auiTeyor, of Chester and Huntington. The father waa 
an excellent draughtsman; the maps and plans prepared by him, being beautiful 
specimens of caligraphy and drawing, are si ill highly prized by their possessors. A 
fine chart of the parish church of S. John, Chester, presented by Mr. James Oal- 
Teley, is still preserred in the yestry of that church. Hugh Calveley was bora 
on the 8th July 1783, and after being for some years under the rer. J. Biley of 
Wayerton, a yillage adjacent to Huntington, was remoTcd to Manchester school. 
Here he remained for four years, the yictim of ill health : and on quitting school, 
his delicate health forbidding all employment, was sent, under charge of an elder 
brother, to the West Indies, remaining in the island of S. Vincent for abont 
two years. Beturning home, the ship in which he sailed became the prixe of a 
French cruizer, and he, with the captain and crew, were made prisoners of war 
and taken to Guadaloupe. On his release he returned to England, and in 1803 ob- 
tained a commission in the Boyal Cheshire militia, then embodied for actiye seryice. 
With this regiment he seryed till the close oi* 1815, acting as paymasters and, 
though always in delicate health, managed to outliye all his brother officers, and 
to see his old regiment re-embodied after a lapse of more than forty years. After 
leaying the militia he led a retired life, dying at his residence in Watergate street^ 
Chester, at the age of 86, on the 28th February 1868, and was buried at the new 
cemetery. T, K^

He seceded from the English Church in 1834, and settled at Southport where a 
Mr. Hague of Liyerpool built for him a small meeting house. After a while his po- 
pularity waned, and he showed a disposition to return to the Church, but did not 
meet with encouragement from his diocesan, Dr. J. B. Sumner. During his residence 
in London he is said to haye been a frequent attendant at the daily seryices in S. Paul's 
cathedral. The death of his youngest son, Arthur George, of Famlie, Widnes, 
Lancashire, was recorded in the papers as haying occurred at Ghreat Malyern on the 
I St December 1873, at the age of 50. 

Page 216. — William Harter, 

He died at Hope, Bccles, on the 27 th October 1872, aged 81. 

Page 222. — Ashhurst Turner Gilbert, 

He died at Chichester on the 21st February 1870, at the age of 83, after an epis- 
copate of twenty-eight years. His funeral sermon was preached in Chichester cathedral 
on Sunday the 27 th February, by his examining chaplain, the rey. H. B. Whitaker 
Chorton, yicar of Icklesham and prebendary of Chichester. lu a brief notice of the 


bialiop, whiob appeared in the Times on the day following hia death, are these words : 
" He has left behind him a name for unbounded beneyolence, open-handed hospi- 
tality, and a derout aud stainless life." 

He published a Vtsitafion Charlie in 1848.

Page 227. — Thomas JIargreava, 

He was a contemporary of the first sir Robert Peel and, like him, founded a calico 
printing establishment, which took a high position in that branch of industry. He 
oommenoed business at Oakenshaw, near Whalley, but at the commencement of the 
present oentuiy remored to Aocrington, and erected works on an extensiye scale in 
the Talley of Broad Oak, in partnership with Mr. Dugdale. He died on the i ith June 
18x2, in the prime of a life which may justly be said to hare been marked by great 
and honourable enterprise. Accrington, then a village, and which has now a popula- 
tion of more than 20,000, owes its rise to the Broad Oak print works, which have 
enjoyed more than seventy years uninterrupted prosperity. On the death of Mr. 
Hargreaves, the works were carried on by three of his sons, John, Robert and Jona- 
than. John Hargreaves the eldest son, who married, on the i6th NoTember 1831, 
Grace, daughter of sir William Brown of Liverpool, was the last to retire from the 
business in 1852, which then passed into the hands of Messrs. Grafton and company 
the present proprietors, and resided on an estate which he purchased at Beaconsfield 
in Buckinghamshire, where he died on the 15th January 1873. He was buried at 
Christ church, Accrington, and a long report of his funeral, almost a public one^ 
^ipeared in the local papers, with a brief and interesting history of the weU-known 
printing works with which he was so long connected. 

Mr. Thomas Hargreaves, who married Margaret, daughter of Benjamin Wilson, 
esq., of Baxenden, was buried at the parish church of Accrington, where there is a 
monumental tablet bearing the following laudatoxy inscription : 

Sacred to the memory 


Thomas Habobbatis, Esq., 

of Oak Hill in this Parish. 

Endowed with strong natural talents, 
and possessing a peculiar soundness of judgment, 

united with 

an amiable simplicity of manners, 

an uniform benevolence of disposition, 

and an honourable integrity of oonducti 

he enjoyed 


the esteem, the confidence, and the affection 
of all within the sphere of bis acquaintance : 


by his advice, his influence, and his example 

he rendered himself 

the common Friend and Benefactor 

of the neighbourhood in which he lived. 

He closed a life of pure unaffected pietj to God 

and of extensive usefulness to Society 

on the 12th day of June 1822, 

in the 5 ist year of his age.

Page 227. — Joseph Johnson. 

This scholar was one of the principal persons engaged in the political agitation 
which preceded " the Peterloo x^eeting " at Manchester on the i6tb August 1819. 
Excepting Hunt, he was perhaps in station the most important of the leaders. He 
was a man well-to-do in the world, having a brush-shop and manufactory in Shude- 
bill, and a private house at Crumpsall, where he entertained Hunt prior to the meet- 
ing from which they, with others, were removed to prison. For many years aft<r he 
was known, as I can well remember, as " Radical Johnson ;" but in the latter part of 
his life eschewed public politics, and became, I believe, like sir Francis Burdett, a 
tory in his opinions. His last public act was the strenuous part which he took in 
promoting the candidature of Cobbett as a member for Manchester, after the passing 
of the first reform bill in 1832. 

For many years be resided at Korthenden, Cheshire, wbere be died on the 5th 
September 1872, aged 81, and is buried in the churchyard. His wife, Margaret, died 
on the 3rd February 1821, aged 25 years, after giving birth to a son, who died on 
the 4th May following. 

The following notice of him appeared in the Manchester Guardian of the loth 
September 1872, for which I am indebted to Mr. David Kelly of Stretford. Though 
taking, as many wiQ still believe, too lenient a view of the motives and actions of the 
chief political agitators of the days referred to, the notice is not undeserving of a 
place in these pages : 

" Our list of deaths two days ago comprised the name of one wbo , tbougb he had 
outlived the recollection of most of his fellow-citizens, was distinguished, and not 
otherwise than honourably, in his time. It is not desirable that veterans wbo have 
borne the brunt of political confiict in their day should fall to rest entirely unnoticed, 
though they may — and, indeed, often must — have long ago ceased to take an active part 
in public affairs. Only very few people probably recognised in Mr. Joseph Johnson, 
whose decease at the ripe age of 8z we recorded, a leading figure in the demonstration 
so brutally repressed by the Peterloo massacre and a sharer in the penalties attached 
in 1 8 19 to the offence of assembling to petition parliament for a redress of grievances. 



We beliere, however, we are not mistakeo in identifying him with the gentleman of 
that name who may he read of in Samuel Bamford*8 Fcutaget in the life of a Radical 
aa having heen the Manchester entertainer of Henry Hunt during this memorahle 
Tisit, and the nearest companion of the celebrated demagogue on the platform in St. 
Peter's field. The important place assigned to Mr. Johnson among the persons 
charged, firstly, with high treason, and ultimately with conspiring to alter the law 
by force, on that occasion is shown by the fact that he alone on committal by the 
magistrates was bound over to answer the charge in the same bail of i,ooo2., and two 
collateral sureties of scol. each, which was exacted from Hunt himself. On the trial 
of the prisoners at York, while Hunt was sentenced to imprisonment for two years 
and six months, Mr. Johnson was 'one of three sentenced to imprisonment for twelve 
months, which he actually underwent in conjunction with Bamford. The * Old 
Badical' mentions many particulars relating to his fellow-prisoner in Lincoln gaol, 
saying, among other things, that ho addressed the court on the daim to mitigation 
of punishment in a speech ' more condensed and to the point than that of Hunt on 
the same occasion.' Bamford also denounces the severity shown by lord Sidmouth, 
the home secretary of the time, in refusing to allow Mr. Johnson to visit his wife on 
her death-bed, notwithstanding that the prayer for this indulgence was supported by 
a memorial addressed to the government by the magistrates of the county. These are 
now , old tales. To recall them, however, ought to be pleasant to the. surviving 
friends, and especially to the descendants of men who suffered persecution in times 
when danger was to be incurred by the free expression of opinion." 

One of the present feoffees of the Manchester granunar school, Mr. Richard 
Johnson, formerly a manufacturer of telegraph wire, is, I am told, nephew to this 
scholar. Mr. F. W. Walker, the present high master, married a daughter of Mr. 
Bichard Johnson. She died in March 1869, leaving one son. 

Page 231. — John Pilkington, 

He was elder brother to Q^orge Pilkington, who from a very humble position 
worked his way by industry and upright conduct to a higher social standing and to 
affluence. George Pilkington presented the marble statue of Humphrey Chetham 
and stained glass window, which are in the cathedral of Manchester. (See page 16 of 
A Sermon pre<iehed in Manchester Cathedral, 2^th July 1873, in commemoration of 
Humphrey Chetham, by the Sev. F. B. Saines, M,d.) John Pilkington died young.

This scholar was ordained to the curacy of Ashton-imder-I^e in 18 17, and died 
incumbent of S. George's, Staleybridge. 

Page 233. — John Morton, 

[The rev. John Morton was ordained in z 8 19 to the curacy of S. Thomas's chapel, 
Pendleton, where he continued during the remaining period of the incumbency of the 
rev. James Pedley, who died in 1825. (See SeyiHer, vol. i. p. 78.) In this oapacitj 


Mr. Morton was an extremely acceptable and popular clergTman ; and daring the 
latter part of his term of office, Mr. Fedley being incapacitated, tbe old cbapel in 
Brindle Heath (which had been erected for a dissenting meeting house by a bleacher 
named Brierley, who intended it for a son, who died young) became a Tery carriage 
road to heayen. As curate of Pendleton Mr. Morton published : 

1. Baptismal Vows: a Sermon preached May loth, 1824, addressed to the 
young people of that township after confirmation. 

2. A Farewell Sermon, preached at 8. Thomas' 9 in 1825, and published at the 
request of the congregation. 

He afterwards carried on a large priyate school at Pendleton until his promotion 
to Chorlton chapel, where he was cut off in the midst of his years of usefulness. A 
sermon on his death was published by the rey. W. Huntington, the present rector of 
S. John's, Manchester, in 1843. He left three daughters, who after their father's 
death engaged in tuition. J2. X.]

[He succeeded his father, as a brewer, in Grayel lane, Salford. The father, who 
tenanted for some time Failsworth hall, was a patron of the turf. Besides this son 
he left three daughters, two of whom married. He married, for his second wife, 
Elizabeth, eldest daughter of Mr. Thomas Loxham, of Salford, who with his wife 
was buried beneath the pulpit in Trinity chapeL J2. X.]

Frederick Baltimore Calyert was baptized on the nth April 1795. From Man* 
Chester school he went to the Roman Catholic college of Old Hall Ghreen, Hertford- 

In 1824 he published A Defence of the Drama, which had an extensiye circula- 
tion, and was read by Mr. Fawoett to the members of the theatrical fund at their 
annual dinner of that year, under the presidency of the duke of York. In 1829 he 
became elocutionary lecturer of King's college, Aberdeen, and gaye lectures on oratoiy, 
poetiy and other literary subjects, in the larger towns of England. He has been, in 
succession, lecturer at King's college, Aberdeen, master of the Englbh language and 
literature at the Edinburgh academy, and elocutionary lecturer to the new coUeges of 
Edinburgh and Glasgow, which last office he holds at the present time. 
He is the author of the following publications :

which were still further heightened, when it was made known that he had procured 
for the school a whole holiday. T. C]

He was matriculated of Brasenose college, Oxford, in Hilary term 1745, at the

I am indebted to Mr. John Owen of Manchester for the following facts : 

"17 14. May 25. Married Bdward Jackson and Alice Mashe." {fiegitter Mam-

"In the churchyard there is a stone on which his death is recorded on the 13th

tized 13th December 1727. Oa another grayestone is the death of Edward Jackson, 
jun., who was buried 27th September 1793, aged 75. In his will he makes his bro- 
ther, the rey. William Jackson of Stockport, one of his executors.'* 

In Wheeler's Manchester Chronicle William Jackson's death is thus announced : 

" 1 79 1. September 3. On Thursday eyening died at Stockport, supposed by the 
sudden bursting of a blood yessel, the rey. William Jackson, M. A., chaplain to the 
earl of Hardwicke, one of the king's preachers of the county of Lancaster, and minis* 
ter of Newton, near this town. He was also minister of Denton in this parish, and 
master of the free grammar school in Stockport near forty years. His memory will 
be long reyered by his suryiying friends, relations and hearers." 

He was appointed by the warden and fellows of Manchester Collegiate church to 
the perpetual curacy of Newton Heath on the 23rd July 1789, on the death of 
Bichard Milward (for whom see Begieter, p. 32), and was himself succeeded at Den* 
ton by the rey. P. W. Ghreswell. 

William Jackson appears among the scholars present at the anniversary meeting 
of 1789.

and tho' I would on no account lose the opportunity, I am determined not to set out

this invitation. Cold weather begins to set in : write me word therefore that yon

See Bamford's Barly Dajfs, pp. 292-94, for a yery charaoteristio anecdote of this 

I remember hearing in my school-boy days the following story of Joshua Brookes. 
What would be said of a clergyman now, who should venture to interfere, as did the 
rev. chaplain at the christening of a child P 

'* Name this child," said Mr. Brookes. " Charles Edward," replied the GK>dparenta. 
''Charles Edward!" exclaimed the irritable chaplain; 'Til have none of your 
Jacobite names here. George ! I baptize thee^" &c.

Yeiy little seems to be remembered respecting this family in the neigbbonrliood 
of Bolton. 

This scholar, the only son, commenced business in Bolton, in a small way, at a 
place called the Vitriol houses, long since demolished. He subsequently remored his 
operations to Prestolee, and rapidly amassed a fortune, being at the time when Baines 
published his county Directory and History t in 1825, unengaged in manufacturing 
pursuits, and was residing at Darley hall, Famworth, which he bmlt, trarelling to 
Italy in order to procure marbles for the embellishment of his mansion. 

He married, in 1785, Elizabeth only suiriying child of Thomas Plumbe, esq., who 
died in 1 807, by whom he had a numerous family. See RegitUry vol. iii. pp. 102, 295, for 
two of his sons. The only child of his son, Thomas Bawson, esq., of Nidd hall, mar- 
ried the present yisoount Mountgarret. Benjamin Bawson died at his house in Tilney 
street. Park lane, London, on the 31st May 1844, in his 87th year. 

The Bawsons have a burial place in the parish churchyard of Bolton-le-Moors, 
but the Tault is empty, its occupants having been removed to Nidd, where a huge 
mausoleum for their reception was erected in close contiguity to the ancient church. 

The works established by the Bawsons at Prestolee, below Darley, where the 
Bolton, Bury and Manchester canals form a junction, and the Bolton rivers iSftU into 
the Lrwell, is now the most extensive alkali manufactory in that part of the country.
