Cumberland family and practised at Shrews- 
bury as a solicitor. He waa educated at 
Shrewsbury school, and on 19 Nov. 1840 
entered at Wadhatn College, Oxford. He 
wu Goodridge exhibitioner io 184S, Warner 
exhibitioner 1842-3, and graduated 1J.A. 
with third-class honours in lit. hum. on 
10 kta 1846, and M.A. on 26 May 1847. 
He then pasted through the theological 
course At Durham, waa ordained deacon De- 
cember 1846, and became curate at St. 
Georgia, Kidderminster. under Thomas Legh 
t 'laugh ten, afterwards bishop of St. Albans

rellent training for his ministerial work,

d is 1848, for family reasons, returned to 

irewsburr, where he acted as curate in the 
perish of Holy Cross. In 1849 he married 
France* Anne, daughter of Henry Douglas, 
rector of Salwarpe and residentiary canon 
of iKirhnm. In 1851 he became rector of 
Whittington in Shropshire, and remained 
thorn, an exemplary parish priest, for twenty- 
eight Tears. Id 1854 he was appointed 
raral dean of Oswestry, in 1860 honorary 
canon of St. Asaph, in 1868 proctor for the 
clMgy in convocation, and in the same year

clined the bishoprics of Natal (1867), New 
Zealand (1808), MmH real (ISti'J), Cape Town 
(1873), and Jamaica (1878), besides a 
canonry, with superintendence of home 
mission work, at Winchester (1878), and 
the important livings of Brighton (1870), 
All Saints', Margaret Street (1873), and 
Windsor, with a readership to the queen 
(1878). The first offer he accepted was that 
of suffragan to the bishop of London, with 
episcopal supervision of East London. He 
had to assume the title of bishop of Bedford, 
because the only titles which could then be 
Ued by sutl'rngan bishops were those specified 
in the Suffragan-bishop Act of Henry VIII. 
He was consecrated on St. James's day, 1879, 
and on the following day was instituted to 
the living of St. Andrew Undersbuft, which 
supplied tin; income for the bishop, and a

archbishop of Canterbury, and on 15 June

Btainforth House, Upper Clapton, which 
was generously put at his disposal by tbe 
owner, and became, as a co-worker said, 
' the leader of an East London crusade.'

that the spiritual destitution of East Lon- 
don was appalling, and enlisted agencies 
for remedying the situation from all Quarters. 
Hia first policy was ' to fill up the gaps 
in the ministry, both clerical and lay,' and

response. The Princess Christian evinced

and at the Strand, under J. W. Hammond 
in 1887, was Winkle in a piece called 

* Pickwick.' Many years later he played 
Mr. Pickwick in Albery's play at the Lyceum. 
The same year he acted with Macready at 
Oovent Garden, and he participated in the 
original performance of the ' Lady of Lyons ' 
(15 Feb. 1888). He also played Mark An- 
tony in ' Julius Caesar.' Joining the Hay- 
market under Webster, he remained there 
without a break in his engagement for the 
almost unprecedented term of forty years. 
Among innumerable original parts were: 
Brandon in Lo veil's 'Look beforeyou Leap' 
on 29 Oct. 1846, Ernest de Fonblanche 
in the 'Roused Lion' on 15 Nov. 1847, 
Lord Arden in LovelTs ' Wife's Secret ' 
on 17 Jan. 1848. His characters included 
Fazio, Sir George Airy in the ' Busy Body/ 
Lord Townley m the ' Provoked Husband/ 
Archer in the ' Beaux' Stratagem/ Benedick, 
Joseph Surface, Sir Anthony Absolute, Sir 
Peter Teazle, Malvolio, Jaques, Macduff, 
Harry Dornton. He used to state that 
there were pieces (such as the ( Lady of 
Lyons ') in which, during his gradual rise, he 
had played every male part from the lowest 
to the highest. On 16 Aug. 1879, at the 
Vaudeville, he was the first Rev. Otho 
Doxey in Richard Lee's ' Home for Home/ 
and played Farren's part of Clench in the 

* Girls.' Soon afterwards he took (Sir) Henry 
Irving's role of Digby Grant in a revival of 
Albery's \ Two Roses.' On 26 Dec. 1881, as 
Mr. Furnival in same piece, he appeared at 
the Lyceum, with which his closing years 
were connected. Here he played characters 
such as Old Capulet, Antonio in ' Much Ado 
about Nothing ' and ' Twelfth Night/ Ger- 
meuil in ' Robert Macaire/ Farmer Flam- 
borough in ' Olivia/ Burgomaster in ( Faust/ 
and very many others. He accompanied 
Sir Henry Irving to America, where he died 
on 10 March 1896. He was a thoroughly 
conscientious actor, and an exceptionally 
worthy and amiable man, whose one delight 
was to cultivate his garden at Isleworth. 
His son, Henry A. Hutchinson Howe, musical 
and theatrical critic on the * Morning Adver- 
tiser/ predeceased him, dying on 1 June 
1894, aged sixty-one.

HUCHOWN (/. 14th cent.), the author 
of several romances in the old alliterative 
Terse, is described byWyntoun as ' Huchown 
of the Awle Ry ale ' (in one MS. ' Auld Ry all '). 



Wyntoun eulogises him as ' cunnand in litem 
ture/ and ascribes to him three romance! 
' The Gret Gest of Arthure/ 'The Awntyre oj 
Gawane/and 'The PVstyll of Swete Susan: 
Of these ' The Pystyll of Swete Susan ' cm 
be identified beyond dispute. It exists in fin 
manuscripts (two in the British Museum, on* 
in the Bodleian library, a fourth at Chelten- 
ham, and a fifth at Ripley), and was pufc 
lished in Lung's 'Select Remains/ 182^ 
and, besides several times by German editors, 
by the Scottish Text Society in 'Scottial 
Alliterative Poems 'from the five manuscript! 
ed. F. J. Amours, 1896-7. Further, by mean! 
of an exhaustive comparison with thfl 
'Pystyll,' Dr. Trautmann (Der DichUa 
Huchown und seine Werke in Anglia, 1877 J 
has established the identification of 'The 
Gest of Arthure' with the non-rhyminjo 
alliterative poem ' Morte Arthure ' preserved 
in the Thornton MS. at Lincoln, and pub- 
lished, ed. Halliwell, 1847, and by the Early 
English Text Society, ed. £. Brock, 1865, 
The identification of 'The Awn tyre afl 
Gawaine ' is still, however, a matter of dis- 
pute. Mr. F. J. Amours (Scottish Allitera- 
tive Poems) argues with some plausibility 
for the rhyming alliterative poem, 'The 
Awntyres of Arthure at the Terne Wathe- 
lyne/ preserved in the Thornton MS., in the 
Douce MS. in the Bodleian Library, and in 
the Ireland MS. at Hale, Lancashire, and 
published bv Pinkerton from the Douce MS. 
in 'Scottish Poems/ 1792, under the title 
' Sir Gawain and Sir Galaron of Galloway/ 
by David Laing in ' Select Remains/ 1822 
(2nd ed. 1885) ; by the Bannatyne Club, ed. 
Sir F. Madden, 1839 ; by the Camden So- 
ciety, ed. Robson, 1842 ; and by the Scottish 
Text Society in ' Scottish Alliterative Poems,' 
ed. F. J. Amours, 1896-7. This conclusion 
cannot, however, be regarded as more than 
probable; and there is even a possibility that 
it may be the non-rhyming 'Sir Gawain and 
the Green Knight/ which is poetically of 
great merit. 

As to the identity of the poet himself, 
since his name was Huchown (French 
Huchon), it has generally been supposed 
that he was the ' £ude Sir Hew of Eglyn- 
toun ' mentioned in Dunbar's ' Lament for 
the Makeris.' A Sir Hugh of Eglinton, who 
flourished between 1348 and 1375, was mar- 
ried to Egidia, half sister of Robert II, and 
was for some years auditor of accounts. The 
name of no other Sir Hew of Eglinton 
occurs in public documents in the fourteenth 
century, and notwithstanding some ingenious 
arguments to the contrary, there is absolutely 
no reason for refusing to accept this Sir Hew 
as the poet referred to by Dunbar, and ther6* 



fore in all probability ' Huchown oft lie Awte 
Uyale,' which two last words have, with at 
least plausibility, been interpreted aa 'royal

HUGHES, DAVID EDWARD (1830- 

1900), electrician and inventor, was born in 
London on 16 May 1830. His father, David 
Hughes, was i be -mi of linlvri Hughes, boot- 
maker, of London and HaU, .Merionethshire. 
In 1837 the family went out to Virginia, 
and David received his education at St. 
Joseph's College, Bardstown, Kentucky. At 
an early age he displayed a talent for music 
inherited probably from his father, and i 



Hughes 

1849 became professor of music at the col- 
lege. His great interest in experimental 
science led to his undertaking the teaching 
of natural philosophy, and during the tenure 
of his double oihce the idea of his type- 

! printing telegraph occurred to him. Although 
Sir) Charles Wheatstone [q. v.] had ex- 
hibited a type-nrinter at the Royal Poly- 
technic Institution, London, in 1841, the 
first instrument available for practical use 
was that invented by House, of Vermont, 
and adopted by the American Telegraph 
Company in 1847. In it the motion of the 
wheel carrying the type at the receiving 
station was produced step by step, by the 
teeth of a wheel at the transmitting end 
making and breaking the electrical circuit 
as it was rotated. Hughes proposed to pro- 
duce these synchronous rotations mechani- 
cally, and only to use the electric current 
once for each letter printed. 

He resigned his position at Bards town, 
and spent two years working out the details 
of his instrument, which he completed and 
patented in 1855. Next year it was adopted 
oy the American Telegraph Company, and 
many of its features are present in the Phelps 
instruments now used by them. 

In 1857 Hughes brought the instrument 
to this country, and, on its not meeting with 
the reception he expected, proceeded to 
France, where it was purchased by the 
government in 1860 and installed on their 
Fines. During the next ten years it was 
adopted by most of the continental govern- 
ments, and its inventor was the recipient of 
many decorations and honours. In 1872, 
while resident in Paris, he was elected a 
foreign member of the newly founded So- 
ciety of Telegraph Engineers, now the In- 
stitution of Electrical Engineers. In 1877 
he settled in London, and devoted much of 
his time to experimental electrical work, 
with apparatus constructed by himself. 

The telephone, invented by Reiss in 1861, 
had been rendered a practical instrument bv 
Bell in 1876, but his transmitter was still 
unsatisfactory, even after the introduction of 
the carbon button into it in 1877. Further 
improvement was rendered possible by the 
invention of the 'microphone' in 1878, 
almost simultaneously by Liidtge (' universal 
telephone/ German patent, 12 Jan. 1878), 
and by Hughes (Proc. Royal Soc. London, 
8 May 1878). It owes its action, as the 
latter explained, to the great variation of 
electrical resistance of a loose contact between 
two conductors, on the slightest relative 
motion of the two parts. 

In April 1878 D' Arson val, in a communi- 
cation to the Academie dee Sciences ( Comptes 



Hughes 



Rendu*, lxxxvi. 832), called attention to the 
telephone as a sensitive detector of varying 
electric currents, and in May 1879 Hughes 
exhibited to the Royal Society of London 
(Proc. Royal Soc. xxix. 56) a new ' induction 
balance,' in which a telephone replaced the 
galvanometer and current rectifier of Felici 
(Ann. de Chim. et de Pkys. xxxiv. 65, 68, 
1852), and with it repeated and extended the 
results obtained by Dove with his original 
balance (Ann. der Pkysih, xlix. 77, 1840). 

In 1880 he was elected a fellow of the 
Royal Society, and in 1885 received the 
society's gold medal 'for experimental re- 
search in electricity and magnetism, and for 
the invention of the microphone and in- 
duction balance/ He had ceased to be a 
foreign and become an ordinary member 
of the Society of Telegraph Engineers in 
1879, and after being successively a member 
of the council (1880) and vice-president 
(1882), he was in 1886 elected president of 
the society. In his inaugural address he 
gave an account of his experiments on ' the 
self-induction of an electric current,' &c. 
(Journal Tel. Eng. xv. 6), and succeeded 
in arousing general interest in the laws of 
distribution of alternating electric currents 
in conductors, which had been investigated 
mathematically by Heaviside and others. 

During the interval 1879-86 Hughea 
appears from his letters to have convinced 
himself by experiment of the existence of 
electric waves in the air surrounding an 
electric spark, and to have discovered the 
efficacy of a microphone contact (coherer) 
in series with a telephone or galvanometer 
and a voltaic cell, as a detector of them. 
Unfortunately these early experiments on 
aerial telegraphy were not made public, and 
it was left for Hertz to demonstrate the ex- 
istence of electric waves in 1887, for Branly 
to re-invent the coherer as a detector in 
1891, and for Marconi to combine the two 
into a system of wireless telegraphy in 1896. 

He continued for the rest of his life to 
take an interest in electrical matters, and 
occasionally took part in the discussion of 
papers read before the Institution of Electrical 
Engineers. In 1889 he was elected a ma- 
nager, and in 1891 vice-president, of the 
Royal Institution. In 1898 the Society of 
Arts conferred the Albert medal on him for 
' his numerous inventions, especially the 
printing telegraph and the microphone.' 

About this time he began to be troubled 
with paralysis, and died at 40 Langham 
Street, W., on 22 Jan. 1900, after an attack 
of influenza. He was interred at Highgate 
cemetery. Leaving no issue, he bequeathed 
between 300,000/. and 400,000/. to four

HUGHES, THOMAS (182&-1896), the 

author of 'Tom Brown's School Days,' was 
born at Cffington, a country parish near 
Faringdon in Berkshire, on 20 Oct. 1*22. 
His father was John Hughes (1790-1857) 
!.; brother George Edward (1821- 
1878 I, who is the subject of Tom Hughes's 
' Memoir of aBrother, was thirteen months 
Tom's senior ; he wns educated at Rugby 
and Oriel College, Oxford, stroked tha Oxford 
crew of 1843, entered Lincoln's Inn in 1848, 
and practised in the ecclesiastical courts; 
he UK a member of the Pen and Pencil 
Club, a skilful player on the violoncello, and 
died at Hoylnke, CheabiM, on 2 .May 187-'. 

Tom spent almost all Lis years up to early 
manhood in the closest companionship with 
this elder brother. They went together in 
the autumn of IS.'H) to a private school at 
Twyford. near Winchester, "here they had 
;!;n'hfi-ird Mansfield [t\. v.] as their 
schoolfellow. Tom Hughes describes this 
school as being before its time in tin* culti- 
vation of athle 



Hughes 



bruary 1834 

Rugby, Tom being then eleven years old. 

DM hod been at Oriel with Dr. 

Arnold, and though he had no sympathy 



with his politics he admired his character 
ami abilities, and lie. sent his sons to Rugby 

to be under Arnold. 

The Rugby of that time is described in 
'Tom Brown's School Days.' It has been 
almost inevitable that readers should see 
Hughes himself in Tom Drown. But in the 
preface to 'Tom Brown St Oxford ' lie com- 
plains of this identification. 'I must take 
this iny first and lost chance of saying that 
he is not I, eitheras boy or man. . . .When 
I first resolved to write the book I tried to 
realise to myself what the commonest type 
of English boy of the upper middle class 
was, so far as my experience went ; and to 
that type I have throughout adhered, tryiug 
simply to give a good specimen of the genus. 
I certainly have i> laced him in the country 
scenes which I know best myself, for the 
simple reason that I knew them better than 
any others, and therefore was less likely to 
blunder in writing about them,' Headers 
are hound to respect this protest. But the 
sentiments and doings ascrilied to Tom 
Brown were by Hugh's account those of 
the kind of boy that Hughes was. Tom 
Hughes did not become much of a scholar; 
in academical attainments ho was below his 
brnl her George, but hat sclirml und at college. 
But he rose high enough in the school to 
come into that close contact with Dr. Arnold 
which never failed to draw boys .of any 
thought fulness into reverence for him. Tom 
stayed s year at Rugby behind hi* brother 
George, and in the middle of the year he 
played for Rugby at Lord's in the annual 
match against n. Marvlebone club eleven. 
Then in the spring of 1842, having matri- 
culated on 2 Dec. 1841, he followed his 
brother to Oxford and Oriel, carrying with 
him at least a great cricketing reputation, 
for he played in the June of his first year in 
the Oxford and Cambridge match at Lord's. 
The two brothers had rooms on the same 
staircase, and the genuine though unobtru- 
sive seriousness of Tom's character was no 
doubt fostered by his intimacy with George. 
But neither of them seems b) have been at 
all affected by the religious movement of 
their Oxford days. They associated with 
their distinguished schoolfellows, Matthew 
Arnold, Clough, Walrond.and others. Tom 
Hughes records that in the year before he 
took his degree he made a tour with a pupil 
in the north of England and Scotland 
(Memoir of a Brother, p. 88), He did 
this by the special reouest of the pupil's 
father, who was a neighbour and friend of 
the Hughes family. Hughes says that he 
frequented commercial hotels, and heard the 
corn-law question vigorously discussed, and 









came back from the north 'an anient, nrflo- 
trader.' In other respects, he adds, ' I was 
rapidly falling away from the political fniih 
in which we had been brought up. . . . The 
noble side of democracy was carrying me 
away.' He was thus early showing himself 
to he the generous, teachable, and courageous 
Englishman that he was known to bo in 

■iter life. 

Haying graduated B.A. in 1S45, he went 
up tu London to read for the bar. He had 
been admitted at Lincoln's Inn on '21 Jan. 
1845, but migrated to the Inner Temple on 
18 Jan. 1848, and was called to the bar ten 
days later. Ha never became a great lawyer, 
but he studied diligently, and was able to 
acquit himself creditably in proll-ssionul busi- 
ness. He became Q.C. in lW9,and bencher 
of his inn in 1870. It was through hi* resi- 
dence in Lincoln's Inn that he crime under 
the great influence of his life. F. D. Maurice 
was then chaplain of the Inn, ami, whilst his 
personal character won the reverence of the 

Gung student, his teaching- came home to 
meeds and aspirations and deepest convic- 
tions, and completely mastered him. Maurice 
had no more devoted disciple than Tom 
Hughes. It was the work of his life to put 
in practice what ho learnt from Maurice. 
In the latter part of 1*48 he offered himself 
as a fellow-worker to the little band of 
Christian socialists who had gathered round 
Maurice, in which Mr. John 51. Ludlow, for 
many years Hughes's closest friend and ally, 
and Charles Kmgsley, and his old school- 
fellow Charles Mansfield, were already en- 
rolled. The practical part of Christian so- 
cialism was the co-opomtive movement, espe- 
cially in its ' productive ' form. This branch 
of it has been overshadowed by the vast 
store system ; but it was co-operative pro- 
duction that had the sympathy and ikIvociicv 
of Hughes and the more enthusiastic pro- 
moters of co-operation. In his later years 
Hughes was accustomed to denounce with 
some veh'iacnce what ho regarded as a de- 
aertion of the true co-operative principle by 
those who cared only for the stores, and who 
gave no share in the business to the employes 
of the store and the factory. The early busi- 
nesses set up by the Christian socialists did 
not prosper, but Hughes never despaired of 
the cause. He was one of the mosl diligent. 
and ardent of its promoters, attending c 
ferences, giving legal advice, and going 
missionary tours. He contributed to the 
' Christian Socialist ' and the ' Tracts or 
Christian Socialism,' and acted for somi 
months its editor of the' Journal of Associa' 
tion.' By giving iyidence in lK/iohfil'nir I he 
House of Commons committee on the savings 



iddle and working classes, and by 
other persevering efforts, he aided the passing 
of the Industrial and Provident Societies Act 
(56-7 Victoria, e. 39) in 1893. 

Hughes had married in 1848 Frances, 
daughter of the Itev. .lames Ford, and niece 
of Kichard Ford [q. v.], author of the famous 
'Handbook of Spain, and near the end of 
1349 his brother George became once more 
for a short time his companion, haying joined 
the young couple in a small house in Upper 
Berkeley Street. Tom bad chambers in 
common with Mr. J. M. Ludlow at No. 3 Old 
Buildings, Lincoln's Inn, ami in 1853 the 
two friends agreed to build and occupy a joint 
bouse at Wimbledon. 'Our comniiiui.-tic 

experiment,' savs Mr. Ludlow [Ecv?iomic 
Rf-r-inr, July 18U6. p. 305), ' was entirely suc- 
cessful while it lasted,' which was for four 
years. It was in this Wimbledon house that 
'Tom Brown's School Davs' was written. 
Mr. Ludlow records (ift. pp. 306. 30") how 
Hughes put into his hands one night a portion 
of his manuscript, und with what surprise he 
became aware, us he read, of the quality of 
the book. It was shown without delay to 
Alexander Macmil la n [see under Ms.cxiLUa', 
Daniel], who promptly undertook to publish 
it. Its completion wits. ih-Iayed by a do- 
mestic grief, the death of Hughes s eldest 
daughter; but it appeared anonymously in 
April 1857. Its success was rapid, five edi- 
tions being issued in nine months. 

This book is Hughes's chief title to dis- 
tinction. His object in writing it w-ns to do 
good. He had had no literary ambition, and 
no friend of his had ever thought of him as 
an author. ' Tom Brown's School Hays ' is s; 
piece of life, simply and modestly presented, 
with a rare humour playing all over it, and 

K net rated by the best sort of English re- 
jious feeling. And the life was that which 
is peculiarly delightful to the whole Kriglish- 
speoking race — that of rural sport and the 
public school. The pirl lire was none the less 
welcome, and is none the less interesting 
now, because there was a good deal that was 
beginning to pass away in the life that it 
depicts. The inmk was written expressly for 
boys, and it would be difficult to measure 
the good influence which it has exerted upon 
innumerable boys hy its power to enter into 
their ways and prejudices, and to appeal to 
their betterinstincts; but it has commended 
itself to readers of all ages, classes, and 
characters. The author was naturally in- 
duced to go on writing, and his aubteqMHf 
books, such as ' The Scouring of the White 
Horse '(1859) nnd'Tom Brown at Oxford' 
( 1861) are not without the qualities of which 
the ' School Days ' had given evidence ; but 



Ill January 18->l, at a meeting of llit- pro- 
moters of associations, i( was resolved, on a 
motion made by Hughes, * Unit it be re-

on 7 July 1*69, but made no farther pro- \ 
gress. He was not a very successful speaker, 
and, though greatly liked and respected, he 
would not have been able to reach the front 
rank in politics. When Gladstone went 
over to home rule for Ireland, Hughes's 
opposition to that policy was touched with 
indignation, and he became a vehement 
liberal unionist. In 1809 he was chairman 
of the first co-operative congress, and spoke 
against the tendency to shelve ' productive ' 
co-operation, which he never censed lode- 
Tin,, first of Thrif vi-iir m to America was 
made by Hughes in 1870. One of his 
strongest ties to the United States was his 
admiration of Lowell's ' Poems,' which was 
most fervent. Mr. Ludlow describes [Ero- 
nomic Review, July 1696, p. 309) how, Wing 
asked by Trubner in 1859 to write an in- 
troduction to an edition of the 'Biglow 
Papers,' Hughes, in his self-distrustful way, 
begged help from him, and the introduction 
was a joint composition. Two separate 
essays on American history by the same 
authors were combined in a volume published 
in 1862. One of Hughes's objects 111 going 
to America was to make Lowell's personal 
acquaintance. He had been warmly on the | 
side of the north in the civil war, and this, I 
added to the fame of ' Tom Prowii's Bdtool 
Days," mude him very popular in the States. 
In the course of this visit he gave two 
lectures — one at Boston entitled 'John to 
Jonathan,' another nt New York on the 
labour question. His subsequent visits to 
America were connected with a project, 
commenced in 1879, which at first awakened 
all his enthusiiu-m, und uflerwurde coused 
him much anxiety and considerable pecuniary 
loss. His sanguine, unsuspicious temper 
was not favourable to success in business. 
In conjunction with friends he bought a 
large estate in Ti'iui'-s.-ee, mi which a model 
community was to be established. The place 
was named Rugby. The purchasers had 
been misled as to the productive value of 
the estate, and the early settlers underwent 
a rather bitter disappointment. Tom Hughes 
drew out of the enterprise, but his mother 
went to live at the new Rugby with her 
youngest son, Hastings Hughes, and after 
ten years' residence died there at u very 
advanced age. 

In July 1882 Hughes was appointed a 
county-court judge, and went to live at 
Chester. There he built himself a house, 
which he named after his birthplace, Utnng- 
lon, and he grew old happily in the per- 
formance of his judicial duties. His health 
at last gave way to infirmities, and he died 






st Brighton on 22 March 1*96. In accord- 
ance with his known wishes his funeral 
was strictly private, mid he m buried in the 
Brighton cemetery. Besides his wife he 
left six surviving cliihlr-ii, three sous and 
three daughters. Two died in childhood, 
and a son, who was a soldier, died some years 
before hit father after military experience In 
Siuth Africa. A fine statue o*f Tom Hughes 
by Brock has been erected in the school 
grounds at Rugby. 

There are two original portraits, both by 
Lowes Dickinson— one painted when be 
was a little over forty years of age, in the 
possession of his daughter, Mrs. Cornish ; 
the other when he wan seventy, in the 
possession of Mrs. Hughes. An addition 
that is about to be made to the buildings of 
the "Working Men's College is to be a ' 
memorial of bii principiilship and to bear ; 
his name, 

In addition to the books which have been 
mentioned — 'Tom Brown's School Days,' ■ 
'Tom Brown at Oxford,' 'The Scouring of ! 
the White Horse,' ' The Memoir of u Brother,' ; 
'The Manliness of Christ' — Hughes wrote ' 
Lives of Bishop 1'raser (1**7), of Daniel ! 
Macmillan (1882), of Livingstone (18*19),! 
and of Alfred the Great ( 1869 ), • The Old' 
Ckureh' (1878), ' Rugbr, Tennessee' (1881), ', 
'Gone to Texas' (1884). Many of his 
addresses and shorter compositions were 

[irintod in pamphlet form. A aeries of his 
etters to the 'Spectator' were published 
in bis lifetime hv his daughter, Mrs. Cornish, 
under the tit le of Vncal ion Rambles' (I895V 
A short fragment of autobiography, which 
has been privately printed, contains some 
memories of his early youth and manhood.

cellaneous writer, son of Mark Huuh of 
Nottingham, was born there in 1777. He 
appears to have begun Ids literary career by 
writing a readable little treatise on bee- 
culture, which was afterwards expanded and 
issued in various forms. This was the onesub- 
ject on which he may perhaps be termed an 
expert. His other works are nearly all poor 
examples of anecdotal, quasi-historical book- 
making. They occasionally embellish a 
blank space in biography with a great 
quantity of loose and fragmentary gossip,

office, and oil 31 Oct. 1842 ' Mr. Humfrey' 
was placed third out of bis candidates in a 
contested flection for the vacant posts. This 
appointment made him the youngest hos- 
pital Burgeon in England, and he at once 
began to (five clinical lectures and systematic 
ftlWlhlng in surgery. In 1H47 he was invited 
to act as deputy to the professor of anatomy, 
and he gave the lectures and demonstrations 
upon human anatomy from 1847 to 1880.

the Rev. Dr. William Clark, the professor of 
human and comparative anatomy, in 1866,

Humphry was elected professor of human 
anatomy in the university. He held this 
office until lNrvl, when In* resigned it for the 
newly founded but unpaid professorship of 
surgery. In 1869 lie succeeded I'rofessor 
(afterwiinls Sir") George l-Mwurd Paget [q. v.],

the senate of the university, he was an hono- 
rary fellow of Downing, and in 1884 he was 
elected a professorial fellow of King's Col- 
lege, Cambridge. 

At the Royal College of Surgeons of Eng- 
land Humphry tilled all the offices which hie 
physical strength and his devotion to the uni- 
versity of ( 'umbridge would permit. Elected 
a fellow on 2ti Aug. 1844, when he was still 
a vear below the statutory age, lie served as

over the physiological section of the British 
Association for the Advancement of Science, 
and in 1870 he gave six lectures on the 
nr.liir.^ciiir.! of the human body as a part 
of the Fullerian course nt the Royal Insti-

Beginning as a general practitioner wit 
out a practice, poor and without influi 
Humphry became the most influential n 
in the university of Cambridge, and c 
verted its insignificant medical school i 
one which is world-renowned. Before 
things he was a scientific man and a < 
lector. The Museum of Anatomy and Sur- 
gical Pathology engrossed much of his at- 
tention, and many of his holidays were 
spent in journeys designed expressly to 
secure specimens to fill its Bhelves. As an 
anatomist he was one of the earliest workers 
who attempted to bring human anatomy 
into line with the growing scieuce of mor- 
phology. He was a good and successful 
surgeon, though a great, operation waj 
severe trial to him. He was the first 
England to remove successfully a tumour 
from the male bladder, and one of the first 
to advocate the advantages to be derived 
from the suprapubic method. He had no 
amusements and was sparing in all that con- 
cerned hia own indulgence, but 1

HUNT. ALFRED WILLIAM (1830- 

1808), landscape painter, bom at Liverpool 
on 15 Nov. 1830, was the seventh child, and 
the only son who survived infancy, of the 
painter Andrew Hunt [q. v.j, by his marriage 
with Sarah Sanderson. He was educated 
at t he Liverpool collegiate school, and gained 
ii erholnr-hip at Corpus Christi College, Ox- 
ford, in 1848. In 1851 he won the NVudi- 
gate prize for English verse, (he subject being 
'Nineveh,' and he graduated B.A. in 1862. 
In 1863 he was elected to a fellowship at his 
college, which he resigned on his marriage in 
1881. In 1882 the college paid him the com- 
pliment of electing him an honorary follow. 
He had painted since the age of eight 
under his father's instruction, and had spent 
his vacations during his school and college 
days in sketching from nature in Scotland, 
Cumberland, Wales, and Devonshire, and 
in 1860 on the Rhine. He had exhibited 
drawings at a very early age at the Liver- 
pool Academy, of which he became a member 
in 1850, and later at the Portland Clallery 
in London. At Oxford he was deeply im- 
pressed by the writings of John Raskin and 
by the art of Turner. James Wyatt, the 
well-known print-seller in the High Street,

hesitated 

scholar, a clear and ready speaker, and took 
much interest in politics as well as litera- 
ture ; but he was first and foremost on artist, 
and Wyatt turned the scale in 18G4 by 
giving him a commission to go to Wales and 
paint as much as he could. In that year he 
exhibited a picture, ' Wast dale Head from 
Styhead Pass, Cumberland,' at the Royal 
Academy, and two years later a small oil- 
painting by him, ' Llvn Idwal, Carnarvon- 
shire,' was huug on the line. It wus much 
praised by Ruskin, and was followed by 
other landscapes. These, however, were too 
much in the pre- Rap b eel it c manner to find 
favour with the hanging committee. In 

1857 his pictures were badly hung, and in 

1858 an elaborate work, 'The Track of an 
Old- World Glacier,' was refused. Ruskin 
protested vehemently in his notes on the 
Academy against the treatment of Hunt, but 



close touch with the pre- 
Raphaelites, though not a member of the 
brotherhood, and he was one of the original 
members of th e Hogarth Club. He exhibited 
at the Academy each year from I860 to 1809, 
but his pictures were badly hung, and after 






that time persistently refuse J, till he ceased 
to send them in. This discouragement 
caused him almost to abandon oil-paiuting, 
though be was no less gifted in the use of 
oils than in that of water-colours. In 186J 
lie was unanimously elected an associate of 
the Old Water-colour Society, to which he 
became a regular contributor. He was 
elected a full member in 1804. For about 
seven years be worked in water-colours only, 
but in 1870 lit! again exhibited an oil-] minting 
at the Royal Academy, and continued to 
do so occasionally till within a few yean of 
his death. His contributions amounted in 
all to thirty-seven. At the gallery in Pall 
Mall East he exhibited more than three 
hundred water-colours, and these represent 
only a small proportion of his life's work, 
for he was a rapid though a very careful 
worker. He devoted much time and energy 
to the sorvice of the Royal Water-colour 
Society, as it has been called sinco 1881 : 
this advance and the prosperity which the 
society has enjoyed in recent years were due 
in some measure to Hunt's exertion?. I[ R 
was a trustee of the society from 1879 on- 
wards, and acted as deputy-president in 1888. 
He was largely instrumental in organising 
the Art Club, for social meetings and tem- 
porary loan exhibitions, in connection with 
the society, which was formed in 1883. 

After bis marriage in 1861 Hunt lived 
for a time at Durham, but in 186.1 lie came 
to London and took a house, 1 Tor Villus 
(afterwards called 10 Tor Gardens), Camp- 
den Hill, Kensington, which had been occu- 
pied previously by Mr. James Clarke Hook 
and Mr, Iloltnnn Hunt. This was his resi- 
dence during the remainder of his life, and 
he died there on 3 May 189fl. A fine and 
representative loan collection of his works 
waa exhibited in the following year at the 
private gallery of the Burlington Fine Arts 
Club. Exhibitions had been held in his 
lifetime at the Grosvenor Gallery and in 
the rooms of the Fine Art Society* in New 
Bond Street (1884). 

On 16 Nov. 1861 Hunt married Margaret, 
second daughter of James llaine [q. v.] Mrs. 
Hunt, who, with three daughters, survives 
him, is the anthoresa of several novels. 

Hunt painted much at Durham, on the 
Tees, and at Whitby and other places on the 
north-east coast of England, but also on the 
Thames (Sonning, Pangbourne, Windsor, 
&c), in Scotland and Wales, in Switzerland, 
on the Rhine and Moselle, and in Italy, Sicily, 
and Greece, during a tour of nine months 
in 1 Stilt -70. He visited America and painted 
the Falls of Niagara in a season of exceptional 
drought. He was a devoted disciple, but by 



no means a mere imitator, of Turner. Like 
Turner, h* was a painter of the sky, of 
cloud, sunshine, and mist. He used water- 
colour with an exquisite purity and delicacv, 
and was no less diligent in the exact study 
of nature than in acquiring mastery over the 
technicalities of his art. He took a verv 
high view of the function of the artist, and 
had a deep and reverent love for the beauty 
of the world as a manifestation of the divine. 
His sincere and modest work, inspired by 
an aim so spiritual, did not show to advan- 
tage in a mixed exhibition, and failed to 
attract, the attention it deserved, especially 
at the Academy; but bis reputation with 
collectors and good judges of art stand* 
high, and is certain to increase. Most of 
his pictures are in private hands; ' Windsor 
Castle' (1889) is in the Tate Gallery, and 
' Working Late' (exhibited in 1873) is ii 
the Walker Art Gallery, Liverpool.

in her majesty's excise. Hunter attended at

duated in 1840. He received an appoint- 
ment in connection with education in Ber- 
muda and resided there for two years,

in Bermuda he attracted the attention and 
elicited the warm commendation of f" 
William Jackson Hooker [a. v.] of Kew, a 
of Sir Richard Owen [q. v.], both of whom 
advised him to devote himself to branches 
of natural Bcience. Hunter, however, pre- 
ferred to continue his studies for the mini- 
stry of the free church of Scotland, and, 
having attended the requisite theological 
classes in Edinburgh, he was licensed as a 
preacher of the free church. On 22 Oct. 
1840 he was ordained colleague of Stephen

Nagpore, Central India. He gave nine y 
of distinguished service to the educational 
and evangelistic advancement of that popu-

important discoveries in geological science. 
But failure of health compelled him in 1855 
to return home. He subsequently assisted

entirely educational. In 18ttt* he gained 
the 'proximo occesstt Shaw fellowship ' 
in philosophy, which, like the I 
is open to graduates of nil Scottish univer- 
sities. Shortly afterwards he took the 
Blackw ell prize for the best essay on the 
philosophy of Leibnitz, and on 7 Aug. 1869 
was appointed professor of Roman law at 
University College, London. His ehi-s was 
■-. bat he devoted much time to 
the preparation of his lectures, and elabo- 
rated a logical arrangement of the subject, 
which afterwords appeared in his text- 
books. Iu 1878 he resigned the chair of 
Roman law, and on 2 Nov. was appointed 
professor of jurisprudence in the same 
college. His lectures on this subject during 
the four years he held the chair contained 
much valuable criticism of Austen and 
other writers, but the matter was not pub- 
lished except, in a few magazine articles. 
Under the influence of John BtUSIt Mill he 
took an active part in the agitation for the 
political enfranchisement of women, nnd 
aided in obtaining for them opportunities of 
higher education. In 1875, following the 
example of Professor John Eliot. Cairnes 

1q. v.], he admitted women to his class in 
toman law, and extended to them the same 
privilege when he afterwards became pro- 
feseorofjurisprudence. In 1 8^2 he resigned

Mayo placed Hunter on special duty 
submit a comprehensive scheme 
the information already collected, for pre- 
scribing the principles according to which 
all local gazetteers are in future to be pre- 
pared, and for the consolidation into one 
work of the whole of the materials that 
may be. available.' This task Occupied the 
neit twelve years of Hunter's life. His first 
duty was to travel over the whole of India, 
so as to put himself into communication 
with the Infill officials, and see things with 
bis own eyes. These tours, often repeated, 
gave him an acquaintance with even corner 
of the peninsula such as few others could 
boast. As was to be expected, he encoun- 
tered some opposition and not a little per- 
sona! criticism, directed chiefly against the 
imiti.rm msI •■hi ol"spr-l]iug|>]nec-names which

thusiasm and diplomacy tinsllv triumphed 
over all obttacUs, The llimterian com- 
promise, based upon a transliteration of ver- 
nacular names, without any diacritical marks 
but with a concession to the old spelliug of 

5 laces that have become historical, has gra- 
uully won acceptance even in English news- 
papers. 

In September 1671 tbe new post of 
direct i ir-geutTul of statistic* to the govern- 
ment of India was created for Hunter, who 
was further privileged to spi-n d long period •= 
in England for the greater convenience of 
the work. In addition to supervising the 
local editors and drawing up the scheme of 
the ' Imperial (oizetteer.' lie took upon him- 
self Bengal, the largest and least, known 
province in India, ami also Assam, which 
then formed an integral part of Bengal. 
'The Statistical Account of Bengal' was 
published in twenty volumes between 1875 
and 1877. The city of Calcutta is omitted, 
but tbe last volume contains a valuable 
appendix on fishes and plants. ' The Sla- 
tistical Account of Assam' followed, in two 
volumes, in 1679. The other local gazetteers 
compiled in India raise the total number of 
volumes to 1 26, aggregating (10,000 pages. 
Meanwhile (he task of condensing this 
enormous moss of material into ' The Im-

in 1661 ; and a second edition, whic'

the spiritual character of bis life as standing 
in strange contrast ' to the eager and agitated 
turmoil of confused passions, hesitating 
ideals, tentative virtues, and grasping philan- 
thropies amid which it tins been lived.' He 
contributed a memoir of 'Cardinal N'ew- 
man' in 1891 to the series entitled 'English 
Leaders of Religion.' 

1 1 ill ton's later literary labours were some- 
what overshadowed by his theological writ- 
ings, but they were not without importance. 
Ills literary interest f utiv especially directed 
to the great writers of the close of the 
Eighteenth and the first, half of the nine- 
teenth century. Although in such afield 
he could reveal little hitherto unknown, his 
intense sympathy rendered his studies of 
such writers as Scott, Shelley, mid Drowning 
of much value. On the critical side his 
work is less satisfactory, his keen apprecia- 
tion of the merits of bis favourites frequently 
rendering him incapable of considering their 
defects. In writers of the late nineteenth 
century he took less interest, and perhaps in 
the 'Spectator' he underestimated the lite- 
rary value of their work. In 1865, on the 
foundation of the 'Pall Mall Gazette,' Hut- 
ton was recommended to the proprietor, Mr. 
George Smith, by Mr. 1 ; red-rick lireeuwriod 
for the post of editor. Although Mr. Smith 
preferred to appoint Greenwood himself, 
Hutton became a contributor, and in 1866 
published 'Stadias in Parliament' (London, 
Svo), a series of sketches of leading poli- 
ticians, which had appeared in the ' Pall 
Mall Gazette,' and which are among his 
happiest writings. In 1871 he issued his 
■ Ks-iivs, Theological and Literary ' (London, 
2 vols. Bva). They appeared again, largely 
recast, in 1877, and in the third edition of 
1-N^ the essay* oil S del ley nh'l on I Inownillp; 
W«re further revised. In 1877 Hutton lost

and its chief members in I he ' N ith i' •■.■nth 
Century,' whose editor, Mr. .lauies Kuowtes, 
was the founder of the society. L'uder the 
form of an imaginary debate on a paper by 
William George Ward, he reproduced the

opinions and expressions of the leading mem- 
bers of the society with striking fidelity. 

Hutton was a strong opponent of vivisec- 
tion, and frequently attacked the practice in 
the 'Spectator.' In 1875 he Berved on a 
royal commission on the subject. The re- 
port was unfavourable to the practice, and 
in consequence in 1876 an act or parliament 
was passed by which persons experimenting 
on living animals were required to hold a 
license from the home seeretarv. 

From 1886 Hutton lived at Twickenham 
in much retirement, owing chiefly to his 
second wife's long illness, giving up all 
society, even that of his closest friends. 
His wife died earlv in 1897. and he did not 
long survive her. He died on 9 Sept. 1897 
at his residence, Crossdepe, and was buried 
in Twickenham parish cemetery on 14 Sept.

liOman catholics, and unitarians, in ubout 
equal numbers and in equal grief.' lie was 
twice married : first, in 1851, to his cousin, 
Anne Mary (7/. 1853), daughter of William 
Stanley Roscoe (1782-1843); and secondly, 
in 1858, to Eliza (d. 1897), daughter of 
Robert Roscoe. Both ladies were grand- 
daughters of William Roscoe [q. v.] the his- 
torian, lie left no children. 

Besides the works alreadv mentioned, 
Hutton was the author of: 1. 'The relative

HUXLEY, THOMAS HENRY (1826- 

189o) ? man of science, was born at Ealinj 
on 4 May 1825. His father, George Huxley 
was senior assistant master in a school a 
Ealing, which had at that time a considerabli 
reputation under the head-mastership a 
Dr. Nicholas. Huxley was the seventl 
child of his parents, and the youngest o 
those who survived infancy. His mother'i 
maiden name was Rachel Withers. He sayi 
of himself : ' Physically and mentally I an 
the son of my mother so completely — evei 
down to peculiar movements of the hands 
which made their appearance in me as I 
reached the age she had when I noticec 
them — that I can hardly find a trace of my 
father in myself, except an inborn facultj 
for drawing, which unfortunately, in my 
cose, has never been cultivated, a hot temper, 
und that amount of tenacity of purpose 
which unfriendly observers sometimes call 

obstinacy.' 

When Huxley was eight years old he was 
sent to the school in which hisfather worked; 
but the death of the head-master led to a 
change in the character of the school, and 
Cieorge Huxley left it, taking his family to 
his native town of Coventry. From this 
time Huxley received little or no systematic 
education, und his reading does not seem to 
have been guided by any definite plan. He 
did, however, earnestly and thoroughly read 
books on a great variety of subjects. At 
fourteen he had read Sir William Hamilton's 
' Logic,' and under the influence of Carlyle's 
writings he had begun to learn German. 

In 18-39 his two sisters married, and each 
married a doctor. This circumstance seems 
to have determined the choice of a profession 
for Huxley himself, although he tells us 
that his own wish at the time was to become 
a mechanical engineer. One brother-in-law, 
Dr. Cooke of Coventry, strongly excited his 
interest in human anatomy, and in 1841 he 
went to London as apprentice to the other, 
Dr. J. G. Scott. At the first post-mortem 
examination he attended he was in some 
way poisoned ; a serious illness resulted, and 
after the immediate effects had passed away 
a form of chronic dyspepsia remained, which 
was a source of serious trouble throughout 
his after life. 

In 1842 he matriculated at Ixmdon Uni- 
versity, attended Lindley's lectures on 
botany at Chelsea, and endeavoured, in spite 



Huxley 23 

of a still imperfect knowledge of German, to 
read the great work of Schleiden. In the 
autumn of the same year he and his elder 
brother James obtained scholarships at the 
Charing Cross hospital, where Huxley first 
felt the influence of daily intercourse with a 
really able teacher. He says : ' No doubt it 
was very largely my own fault, but the only 
instruction from which I ever obtained the 
proper effect of education was that which I 
received from Mr. Wharton Jones, who was 
the lecturer on physiology at the Charing 
Cross school of medicine. . . . I do not know 
that I have ever felt so much respect for any- 
body as a teacher before or since. During the 
next three years he must have accomplished 
an enormous amount of work. He distin- 
guished himself in the ordinary subjects of 
professional study, but in addition to this he 
acquired in some way or other a remarkably 
thorough knowledge of comparative anatomy, 
and a wide acquaintance with the writings 
of the great biologists. In 1845 he announced 
his discovery of that layer of cells in the 
root-sheath of hair which now bears his 
name. Any one who will try to demonstrate 
the existence of this layer by the methods at 
Huxley's command will appreciate the power 
of observation shown by the discovery. 

He graduated M.B. in London University 
in 184o, winning a gold medal for anatomy 
and physiology. In 1846, being qualified to 
practise his profession, he applied for an ap- 
pointment in the royal navy. An application 
to the director-general, suggested by a fellow- 
student, was successful, and he was sent to 
Haslar hospital on the books of Nelson's ship 
Victory. Sir John Richardson [q. v.], who 
was Huxley's chief at Haslar, quickly recog- 
nised his qualities, and resolved to find him 
an appointment which should enable him to 
prove his worth. Accordingly, when Cap- 
tain Owen Stanley asked for an assistant 
surgeon to be appointed to H.M.S. Rattle- 
snake, then about to start on a surveying 
cruise in the seas between Australia and 
the Great Barrier Reef, Huxley was recom- 
mended and accepted. 

The Rattlesnake left England on 3 Dec. 
1846, and was paid off at Chatham, on her 
return, on 9 Nov. 1850. During the voyage 
Huxley devoted himself chiefly to the study 
of animals which could not be adequately 
preserved, for examination at home, by any 
methods then in use. Accordingly the first 
results of his work are described in a series 
of memoirs on those delicate hydrozoa, 
tunicates, and mollusca, which float near 
the surface of the sea, and can be caught in 
abundance from the deck of -a sailing vessel 
in calm weather. The value of these me- 



Huxley 

moire is due as much to the method of mor- 
phological analysis adopted as to the very 
large amount of new anatomical information 
they contain. The conception of a morpho- 
logical type, which was then supported in 
England by the great influence of (Sir) Richard 
Owen [q. v.], may be understood from his de- 
finition of homology, which he interprets * as 
signifying that essential character of a part 
which belongs to it in its relation to a pre- 
determined pattern, answering to the "idea" 
of the archetypal world in the Platonic 
cosmogony, which archetype or primal pat- 
tern is the basis supporting all the modifica- 
tions of such part ... in all animals pos- 
sessing it ' (Owen, On the Nature of Limbs, 
1849). The conception of morphological 
type as an ' archetypal idea/ which Owen 
had derived from Laurenz Oken(1779-1851), 
the German naturalist, and his followers, 
was clearly incapable of being tested by 
experiment, and Huxley from the first re- 
jected it. For him, as for Von Baer and 
Johannes Miiller, the only useful ' morpho- 
logical type ' was a general statement of 
those structural characters common to all 
members of a group of animals in the em- 
bryonic or the adult state. Such conceptions 
could be tested and corrected by observa- 
tion ; and, until the * Origin of Species ' 
appeared, Huxley regarded any hypothesis 
concerning the nature of the bond between 
animals which exhibit the same structural 
plan as altogether premature. 

AVhen the Rattlesnake left England, the 
hydrozoa were commonly associated with 
starfishes, parasitic worms, and infusoria in 
Cuvier's group ' Radiata.' In 1847 Huxley 
sent two papers, dealing with the structure 
of a great division of the hydrozoa, to the 
Linnean Society ; in 1848 he sent to the 
Royal Society a memoir 'On the Affinities 
of the Family of the Medusne ' (Phil. Trans. 
1849), and he wrote a letter to Edward 
Forbes [(j. v.], published in 1850 (Ann. Mat/. 
Nat. Hist, vi.) In these memoirs the morpho- 
logical type common to all the hydrozoa is 
clearly explained, and in the letter to Ed- 
ward Forbes it is shown that the same 
structural plan may be recognised in sea- 
anemones, corals, and their allies. It is 
pointed out that the plan common to these 
animals is not exhibited by the other « Ra- 
diata,' and it is proposed to remove both sets 
of animals from the Radiata, regarding them 
as subdivisions of a separate class, 'Nema- 
tophora.' The views embodied in this sug- 
gestion were speedily accepted, and Huxley's 
statement of the morphological plan common 
to the class is now held to embody a firmly 
established anatomical truth.

that every student should be enabled to test 
general statements concerning a group ot 
animals by reference to one member of the

thoroughly. Huxley realised from the first 
that the thorough knowledge of representa- 
tive animals, which is the only pro|)er 
foundation fiir a knowledge of morphology, 
ought to be ncijuired by direct observation 
in the laboratory ; this, however, was im- 
possible in Jenny n Street, and bis idenl was 
not completely realised until Inter. In spite 
of a certain distaste for public speaking, 
which only time and practice enabled him to 
overcome, he devoted much of his most 
strenuous effort to the work of popular ex- 
position. In a letter dated 1855 he says, 
' I want the working classes to understand 
that science and her ways are great facts for 
them— that physical virtue ia the base of all 
other, and that they are to be clean and 
temperate and all the rest— not because 
fellows in black with white ties tell them 
so, but because these are plain and patent 
laws of nature, which they must obey under

oceanic hydroioa, although published in 
1859, had been completed long before. Two 



Bpers, which continue work begun 
ittli-nake, are the memoir on Pyroaoma 
(Ttotm. Ltim. Sac. 1859), and that on 
Aphis (1867), Each of these describes nn 
alternation of generation, and so continues 
the early work on salpu : but with these ex- 

Xons the greater part of the work pub- 
d between 1855 and 1859 deals either 
: tirm? or with problems suggested 
by them. Amongthe more important ofthe 
descriptive memoirs (some twenty in num- 
ber) published before the end of 1859, we 
must mention that on cephalaspis and 
pteraspis (1858), in which the truth of the 
suggestion that pteraspis is a fish is finally 
demonstrated ; the accounts of the eurv- 
pterina (1856-9); the descriptions of 
djcyuodon, rhatnphorhynclius, and other 
reptiles. Tins.- studies of fossils seem to 
have been carried on simultaneously with 
that of the living form-; related to them; 
thus the work on fossil fishes (the main 
results of which were not published until 
18»>-J) whs accompanied by b study of the 
development of skull and vertebral column in 
— BBS fishes (Quart, Journ. Micr. Sci. 
i9), and by the histological work upon 
■ published in Todd's ' En- 
'" i of Anatomy and Physiology ' 




(article 'Tegumenlary Organs'). The de- 
scription of extinct crocodilia led to an 
investigation of the dermal skeleton in living 
genera {Journ. Linn. Sac. I800|. The 
most important problem, suggested by con- 
tinual work upon vertebrates, whether re- 
cent or fossil, is that pre.=eiited by the com- 
position of the skull. The doctrine prevalent 
in England was that which (Jwen had 
learned from Goethe and Oken. According 
to Owen, the archetype skeleton of a verte- 
brate ' represents the idea of a scries of 
essentially similar -i^niral* succeeding each 
other in the axis of the body; such segments 
being composed of parts similar in number 
and arrangement.' Attempts were made, in 
accordance with this theory, to divide the 
skull into a scries of rings, each of which 
was supposed to contain every element pre- 
sent in a post-cranial vertebra. The result 
was a method of de.-cnpr ion which obscured 
the actual anatomical relations of the parts 
described ; and the attempt to demonstrate 
an archetypal idea by anatomical methods 
reached its climax of absurdity. Huxley 
applied to the skull the same method of 
analysis as that he had so successfully 
applied to other structures. In his essay 
' Da the Theory of the Vertebrate Skull," 
read as theCroonian lecture before the Royal 
Society in 1858, lie endeavours lo formulate 
a morphological type of cranial structure in 
an inductive statement of those characters 
which are common to the skulls of a number 
of representative vertebrates in the adult 
and embryonic conditions. The lecture is 
based partly on the embryological work of 
lteichert, Iluthke, and livuioji, supplemented 
by observations of his own upon fishes and 
amphibia ; partly on a careful study of adult 
skulls. The result is a statement of crania! 
structure which bus been justified in all 
esse nt in] points bv the work of the lust, forty 
years. The lecture on the skull is admira- 
ble not only in substance but in form. The 
character of the audience justified the free 
use of such aid to concise statement as 
technical terms nflord ; but when this Is re- 
membered the lecture must be regarded as a 
masterpiece of coin-is., nud lucid exposition, 
worthy to rank with the most brilliimtly 
successful efforts of II is v ley's biter years. 

For Huxley, as for many others, the most 
important event of li-.j!-* was tin? publication 
ofthe 'Origin of Species.' He had main- 
tained a sceptical altitude towards all pre- 
vious hypotheses which involved the trans- 
mutation of species, and, in the chapter 
written for Mr. Francis Darwin's ' Life and 
Letters of Charles llarwin,' he says: 'I took 
my stand upon two grounds : firstly, that up 



iscuSsionB i himself. 



to that time tin; evidence in favour of trans- 
mutation was wholly insufficient ; and, se- 
condly, that no suggestion respecting the 
causes of the transmutation assumed, which 
hud bfin made, was in any way adequate to 
explain the phenomena.' 

Darwin rendered a belief in I In; occurrence 
of transmutation far easier than it had been 
by his collection of facts illustrating the ex- 
tent of variation; while the theory of 
natural selection provided a working hypo- 
tboM, adequate to explain the alleged 
phenomena, and capable of being experi- 
mentally tested. The attempt to secure a 
fair trial for the new hypothesis, which 
Huxley felt it his duty to make, involved > 
great expenditure of time and strength. The 
account of the 'Origin of Species' written 
for the ' Times ' in 1859, and a lecture ' On 
Ilnees. S]wcie», and their Origin,' delivered 
in 1801.1, mark the beginning of a long effort, 
which only ceased as the need for it became 
gradually less. Many y 
of this doetrine in which he took part, and 
especially important and interesting was his 
share in the debate on the question during 
the meeting of the British Association for 
the Advancement, of -Science at Oxford iu 
1860. 

The consequence of Darwin's theory, 
which many persons found the greatest 
difficulty in accepting, was a belief in the 
gradual evolution of man from some lower 
form; and evidence which seemed to esta- 
blish a broad gup between the structure of 
man and that of other animals was wel- 
comed. Great interest was therefore ex- 
cited by a paper which Owen had read iu 
1S."i7, and repeated with slight modification 
as the Itede lecture before the university of 
Cambridge in 1809. Owen declared thai, 
the human brain was distinguished from 
that of all other animals by the backward 
projection of the cerebral hemispheres, so as 
to cover the cerebellum, and by the back- 
ward prolongation of the cavity of each 
cerebral hemisphere into a 'posterior horn, 1 
with an associated ' hippocampus minor.' 
It is difficult to understand bow an ana- 
tomist of Owen's experience can hare made 
these statements; and his subsequent ex- 

Slanations are equally unintelligible (e.g. 
'wen, Comyartttii? Annt:,inii of \~i-rtt-hntto, 
1860, vol. i. pp. xix-xx). In 1861 Ilnxley 
publisbed two essays, one ' On the Brain of 
Ateles l'aniscas,' and one ' On the Zoologi- 
cal Illations of Man with the Lower 
Animals,' in which it was clearly shown that 
Owen's statements were inaccurate and in- 
with well-known facts. Between 
and 18ti!2 he gave a series of lectures 



Owen's st: 



M In the Conipa rati vo Anatomy of Manand the 
Higher Apes,' published in book form under 
the title 'Zoological Evidences a* 
Place in Nature' (1863, Collected Enayi, 
vol. vii.) There inn sense in which the publi- 
cation of this book marks the beginning of 
a new period of his work ; because from the 
time of its appearance his writings attracted 
greater attention and affected a far greater 
number of people than before. This book 
and a series of lectures ' On the Causes of 
the Phenomena of Organic Xature.'addreaeed 
to working men and printed in lfi63, were 
widely read and discussed, and from hence- 
forth Huxley devoted a continually in- 
creasing amount of energy to popular 
teaching and to the controversy arising in 
connection with it. His sense of the im- 

Cortance of such work, and the enjoyment 
e derived from it, may be gathered from 
words which seem, although lie uses them 
of Priestley, to give an admirable picture of 

' It seems to have been Priestley's feeling 
that he was a man and a citizen before he 
was a philosopher, and that the duties of tl 
two former positions are at 
live as those of the latter, 
are men (and I think Priestley was onfl 
them) to whom the satisfaction of throw; 
down a triumphant fallacy is 
great as thai which attends the discovery o 
a new truth, who feel better satisfied witfc 
the government of the world when they 
have been helping Providence by knocking 
an imposture on the head, and who care 
even more for freedom of thought than for 
mere advancement of knowledge. The* 
men are the Carnots who organise v 1 -* — 
for truth, and they arc at least as impi 
us the generals who visiblv light her bi 
in the field ' 1 1874, CAIe.lnl Efniyt, vol. ill.) 

The freedom of thought for which Huxley 
contended was freedom to approach any pro- 
blem whatever in the manner advocated by 
Descartes; and he wishes bis more important 
essays to be regarded as setting forth ' " 
results which, in my judgment, are t" ' 
by an application of the " method " 
carles to the investigation of prnlilen 
widely different kinds, iu the right solutk 
of which we are all deeply interested' ( to- 
vol. i. preface). In 1870, after describing 
Descartes's condition of assent to any pro 
position, he snys : 'The enunciation of

tific conscience of these latter days.' While 
he held doubt to be a duty, he had no tole- 
rance for careless indifferentism ; and he was 
fond of quoting Goethe's description of a 
healthy active doubt : ' Eine thatige Skepsis 
ist die, welche unablfissig bemiiht ist, sich 
selbst zu iiberwinden.' 

The fearless application of Cartesian 
criticism aroused great indignation between 
1860 and 1870, but the essays and addresses 
published during this period did their work. 
They were certainly among the principal 
agents in winning a larger measure of tole- 
rance for the critical examination of funda- 
mental beliefs, and for the free expression of 
honest reverent doubt. The best evidence 
of the effect thev have produced is the diffi- 
culty with which men of a younger genera- 
tion realise the outcry caused by 'Alan's 
Place in Nature,' or by the lecture * On the 
Physical Basis of Life \ib. vol. i. 1868). Two 
passages from the last-named lecture may 
be quoted as giving a summary of Huxley's 
philosophical position in his own words : 

4 But if it is certain that we can have no 
knowledge of the nature of either matter or 
spirit, and that the notion of necessity is 
something illegitimately thrust into the per- 
fectly legitimate conception of law, the 
materialistic position that there is nothing 
in the world but matter, force, and necessity, 
is as utterly devoid of justification as the 
most baseless of theological dogmas. The 
fundamental doctrines of materialism, like 
those of spiritualism and most other "-isms," 
lie outside " the limits of philosophical en- 
quiry," and David Hume's great service to 
humanity is his irrefragable demonstration 
of what those limits are. . . . Why trouble 
ourselves about matters of which, however 
important they may be, we do know nothing 
and can knowTTbtuing? We live in a world 
which is full of misery and ignorance, and 
the plain duty of each and all of us is to try 
to make the little corner he can influence 
somewhat less miserable and somewhat less 
ignorant than it was before he entered it. 
To do this effectually it is necessary to be 
fully possessed of only two beliefs — the first, 
that the order of nature is ascertainable bv 
our faculties to an extent which is prac- 
tically unlimited ; the second, that our 
volition counts for something as a condition 
of the course of events. Each of these beliefs 
can be verified experimentally as often as we 
like to try. Each, therefore, stands upon 
the strongest foundation upon which any 
belief can rest, and forms one of our highest 
truths. If we find that the ascertainment 
of the order of nature is facilitated by using 
one terminology, or one set of symbols, rather 



than another, it is our clear duty to use the 
former ; and no harm can accrue so long as 
we bear in mind that we are dealing merely 
with terms and symbols.' 

Those who ' care even more for freedom 
of thought than for mere advancement of 
knowledge ' may well consider the effect 
produced by his lectures and essays upon 
the minds of English-speaking peoples to be 
the most important result of Huxley's work 
between 1860 and 18 JO. But they repre- 
sent only a small part of the work he 
actually did during this period. He was an 
active member of four royal commissions (on 
the acts relating to trawling for herrings on the 
coast of Scotland, 1802; on the sea-fisheries 
of the United Kingdom, 1864-6; on the Royal 
College of Science for Ireland, 1866; on 
science and art instruction in Ireland, 1868). 
He was Hunterian professor at the Royal 
College of Surgeons from 1803 to 1869, and 
Fullerian professor at the Royal Institution 
from 1863 to 1867; he undertook an in- 
creasing amount of administrative work in 
connection with various learned societies, 
especially the Royal, the Zoological, and the 
Ethnological ; and he wrote frequently for 
the reviews, being himself for a short time 
an editor of the quarterly 'Natural History 
Review/ In spite of the increased demands 
upon his time and strength made by all these 
new duties, his purely scientific work rather 
increased than diminished in value and in 
amount. 

The papers on fossil fishes, already referred 
to, were followed in 1861 by nn ' Essay on 
the Classification of Devonian Fishes.' Apart 
from its great value as an addition to our 
knowledge of a difficult group of fishes, this 
essay is remarkable because in it Huxley 
drew attention to the type of fin which he 
culled 'crossopterygian,' or fringed, because 
the fin-rays are borne on the sides of a longer 
or shorter central axis. The imperfect know- 
ledge attainable from the study of fossils did 
not permit him at this time to describe the 
structure' of the crossnpterygium very fully; 
but after the discovery of Ceratodus the con- 
ceptions foreshadowed in this essay acquired 
great importance in connection with at- 
tempts to find a common type of limb from 
which both the fin of an ordinary fish and 
the limb of an air-breathing vertebrate might 
conceivably have been derived. 

In 1862 he delivered an address to the 
Geological Society, in which he attacked a 
doctrine then widely held. The order in 
which the various forms of life appear, as we 
examine the fossiliferous rocks from the 
oldest to the most recent, is practically the 
same in all parts of the world. This fact 






curred simultaneously nil over the earth, BO 
that two aeries of rocks containing the same 
fossils were held to be of contemporaneous 
origin, however distant from one another 
they uiijlit he. Huxley gave a forcible sum- 
mitry of the evidence against this view, and 
declared that 'neither physical givilogy nor 
MhoOOtolog) i"i.--i ■■■.-> niiv method l.iy wliii-li 
the absolute synchronism uf two strata can 
be demonstrated. All that geology ciin prove 
is local order of succession.' The justice of 
this statement has not been questioned: and 
the limitation imposed by it is one of the 
many difficulties encountered when we at- 
tempt to learn tin; ancestral history of animals 
from the fossil records. 

In 1883 he delivered a course of lectures 
at the College of Surgeons ' On the Classifi- 
cation of Animals,' and another 'On theVerte- 
brnte Skull.' These lectures were published 
together in 1864. Other courses 'On the 
Comparative Anatomy of Vertebrates' fol- 
lowed, and a condensed summary of these 
was published as a ' Manual uf I lie ( 'nmpuni- 
live Anatomy of Vertebrated Animals' in 
1871. The scrupulous core with which he 
endeavoured to verily hy actual observation 
every statement made In his lectures rendered 
Che labour of preparation very great. Sir Wil- 
liam Flower [q, v. Suppl.l describes the way 
in which he would spend long evenings at 
the College of Surgeons, dissecting animals 
available among thy stores, or making rapid 
notes and drawings, after a day's work in 
Jermyn Street. The consequences were 
twofold; the vivid impression of his own 
recent experience wus communicated to his 
hearers, and the work ol preparation became 
at once an incentive to further research and 
a means of pursuing it. 

The lectures in 1867 dealt with birds, 
and Professor Newton writes of them ; ' It 
is much to be regretted thnt his many 
engagements hindered him from publishing 
in its entirety his elucidation of thoanatomy 
of the class, and the results which he drew 
from his investigations of it ; for never, 
assuredly, had the subject been attacked 
with greater skill and power, or, since the 
days of Buffon, had ornithology been set 
forth with greater eloquence' (Newtok, A 
Dictionary of Birds, p. :W). One great 
result of the work on birds, together with 
the study of fosr.il reptiles, was a recognition 
of the fundamental similarities between the 
two, which Huxley expressed by uniting 
birds and reptiles in one great group, the 
Saurupsidu, Other results obtained were 
shortly summarised in an essay ' On the 



Classification of Birds' {Zuol. Sue. Pror. 
1887), containing an elaborate account of 
the modifications exhibited hy the bones of 
the palate. This essay exhibits in an entirely 
new light the problems which have to be 
solved before we can establish a natural 
classification of birds. The solution offered 
has not been accepted as final : but there is no 
question about the great value of the essay 
as a contribution to cranial morphology. 

The lectures on birds must serve aa e 
amples of others given at the College of 
Surgeons; they were probably the moat 
strikingly novel of any except tins first course 
* On the Classification of Animals ; ' but the 
condensed summary, published in 1871, 
shows that every course of lectures x 
have marked important additions to 
knowledge of the animals with which it 
dealt. One other important problem, that 
of the homologies of the bones which con- 
nect the tympanic membrane with the ear- 
capsule, must be mentioned as treated in 
these lectures, and more fully in a pape 
read before the Zoological Society (1869). 

Apart from the lectures, and from the 
books based on them, Huxley published 
about, fifty technical papers between 1860 
and 1870. Among these are numerous 
descriptions of dinosauria, including that 
"1 hypsilophodon, the results being sum- 
marised in the essay on the classification of 
the group {Quart. Jaunt, Geol. Soc. 1869), 
and in the statements of the relation be- 
tween reptiles mill bird.*, already referred to. 
The account of hyperodapedon (1869) ia 
of great importance in connection with 
nno t her group of reptiles, and there are 
many valuable memoirs on fossil amphibia. 
Much of his work on systematic ethnology 
remoins unpublished; but in 1885 he pub- 
lished anessay ' On the Methods and Ilesulta 
of Ethnology,' containing a scheme of 
classification of the races of mankind, based 
on the characters of the hair, the colour of 
the skin, and the cranial index. He 
dently contemplated a more complete study 
of physical anthropology; for among the 
materials left in his laboratory are some, 
hundreds of pbolujrraphs of various races of 
men, which he had collected before 1870. 

The ' Elementary Lessons in Physiology,' 
published in 1*68, 'is probably better kuown 
than any elementary text-hook of its kind. 
It has been reprinted no less than thirty 
times since its first appearance. 

The years from 1870 to 188i> comprise • 
period of constant nctivily, ending in In 
almost complete withdrawal from public 
life, made necessary by increasing illness.

In 1870 the school board for London 
was instituted, and Huxley's interest in the 
problem of education led him to become 
one of its first members. In an essay 011 
the first duties of the board (Coittempii- 
rary Review, 1870: Collected Estayt, vol. iii.) 
he lays stress on the primary importance of 
physical ami moral culliire. ' The engage- 
ment of the affections in favour of that 
particular line of -conduct which we call 
good," he says, 'seems to me to be some- 
thing quite beyond men- science. And I 
cannot but think that it, together with tbn 
awe mid reverence which have no kinship 
■■ ii', bul arise whenever one tries 
to pierce below the surface of things, whether 
they be material or spiritual, constitutes nil 
that hus.inv iin('h:iiif.'i'iible renhty in religion.' 
This feeling can, 111 bis judgment, be best, 
cultivated by a study of the Bible ■ wirh 
aueh grammatical, geographical, and his- 
torical explanations by r lay teacher as may 
be needful. ' lie held that the elements of 
physical science, with drawing, modelling, 
and singing, aabrded the beat means of 
intellectual training in such schools. Hux- 
ley's influence upon the scheme of education 
iinnllv adopted wai very great, although he 
left tin- board in 1872. 

In speaking of the later stages of educa- 
tion, he dwelt upon the great value of 
literary training as a means of intellectual 
culture, bul he never tired of contending 
that a perfect culture, which should ' Mijiply 
a complete theory of life, based upon a 
clear knowledge alike of it* possibilities and 
of its limitation!,' could not be acquired ■ 
without a training in the methods of physi- 
cal science, At the same lime he was care- 
ful to emphasise his horror of the prevalent 
idea that n mere acquaintance with the 
1 useful ' results of scientific work has auy 
educational value. He well knew that, 
educational discipline e»n only be obtained 
by the pun-nit ox knowledge without regard 
lo its practical applicat ions ; and he saw the 
need for sharply separating inch educational 
discipline from < It..- preparation for a handi-

ALEXANDER (1810- 

nnd BUD of letters, was 

9 May 1810. Hie 




liitli.r mi engaged in business, and Ireland 
for long followed pursuits unconnected with 
literature; but his literary interests and 
studies procured him as a young man many 
intellectual friends, among them the brothers 
I Ibjambem and Dr. John Ghurdwu ■'<(. v. nju 
friendship with Uairdner h-d t<. his ncuuninl- 
anee with Emerson, who in 1838 
Edinburgh with an introduction to the phy- 
sician, whose extensive medical practice 
Compelled him |o request Ireland to act as 
cicerone in his stead. Ireland's sealous dis- 
charge of this office waj the foundation of a 
lifelong friendship with the great American. 
In 1843 he removed to Manchester ns re- 
present iitii ■■ of I EXoddenAaU lirm, mid in 
the same year received a signal proof of the 
confidence of Robert Chamber::, who not 

ouly entrusted him with the secret of the 
authorship of 'The Vestiges of Creation,' 
divulged to only three other persons, but 
employed him to avert suspicion while the 
book waa going through the preu, The 
-■-■lit by tin- London publisher, 
who was himself in complete ignorance, to 
Ireland nt Manchester, find tlienc.e trans- 
mitted to Chambers. The secret was strictly 
kept until 1884, when, every other depository 
of it being dead, Ireland very properly re- 
vealed it in a preface to the twelfth edition, 
thus disposing of a host of grouutili'ss con- 
jectures. In 18-Ri Ireland succeeded Mr. 
(afterwards Sir) Edward Wat kin as pub- 
lisher and business manager of the 'Man- 
cheater Examiner,' a paper founded the 
vear before by Watkin, John Bright, and 
wniiam McKerrow fq. v.] in opposition to 
the ' Guardian,' too haughtily independent 
of the anti-comlaw league to please the 
■ Manchester school.' The first editor waa 
Thomas Ballantyne [q. v.] Ere long the 
' Examiner' absorbed the other local expo- 
nent of advanced liberalism, the ' Manchester

for forty years. In 1847 and 1848 occurred 
the interesting episode of Emerson's second 
visit to England at the instigation of Ireland, 
whowas.iu Car] y lean phrase, 'infinitely well 
affected towards the man Emerson.' All the 
arrangements for Emerson's lectures were 
made by him ; in bis guest's words ho ' ap- 

E roved himself the king of all friends and 
elpful agents; the most active, unweari- 
able, imperturbable.' 

Ireland, after a while, found himself able 
to spare time from journalism for the lite- 
rary pursuits in which he delighted. In 
18fil he was a member of the committee 
that organised the Manchester Free Library,

patients he was able to substantiate the 
suspicion of the great French physician Louis 
that under the name of continued fever the 
English physicians had long confounded two 
entirely different diseases, to one of which 
Louis gave the name of typhus, to the other 
typhoid. The credit of drawing this dis- 
tinction belongs, among others, to Dr. Ger- 
hard and Dr. Shatmak in America, to Dr. 
Valleix in France, and to Dr. Alexander 
Patrick Stewart [q.v.] in Great Britain, but 
their work was contested, while, since the 
publication of Jenner s papers, the identity 
of the two conditions has never been seriously 
maintained. 

Jenner's robust common sense, his sound 
knowledge of his profession, his kindliness 
to patients, and his somewhat autocratic 
manner, made him acceptable to all classes, 
and enabled him to acquire so lucrative a 
practice that he left behind him a fortune 
of 375,000/. The failing health of Sir James 
Clark threw upon him the chief immediate 
care of the queen's health soon after his 
appointment as physician in ordinary, and 
for more than thirty years he proved himself 
not only a most able physician, but a true 
and devoted friend of Queen Victoria, who 
deeply mourned his loss. 

Jenner T s papers on typhoid and typhus 
fevers were published in the ' Monthly 
Journal of Medical Science ' (Edinburgh and 
London) for 1849, and in the ' Transactions 
of the Royal Medical and Chirurgical Society/ 
1850, vol. xxxiii. The latter paper was re- 
ceived on 20 Nov., and read on 11 Dec. 1849, 
the author being introduced by Dr. William 
Sbarpey [q. v.]

JENNINGS, LOUIS JOHN (1836-1893), 
journalist and politician, son of John Jen- 
nings, a member of an old Norfolk family, 
was born on 12 May 1836. Before he was 
twenty-five he became connected with the 
1 Times/ for which journal he was sent to 
India as special correspondent in 1863. For 



some time he was editor of the ' Times o 
India.' After the civil war he was the repre 
sentative of the * Times ' in America, as sue 
cessor to Dr. Charles Mackay [q. vj In 1861 
he published * Eighty Years of Kepublicai 
Government in the United States/ London 
1868, cr. 8vo, and in the same year he marriec 
Madeline, daughter of David Henriques ol 
New York. He settled in New York anc 
became the editor of the ' New York Times. 
The municipal government of the city hai 
fallen into the hands of the Tammany Kini 
and 'Boss' Tweed. Jennings, undeterrec 
by threats of personal violence, and even ol 
murder, during many months exposed th( 
malpractices in his newspaper, and finally 
had the satisfaction of seeing the corrupt 
organisation broken up through his public- 
spirited and courageous efforts, and the ring- 
leaders, who had defrauded their fellow- 
citizens of millions of dollars, punished 
This remarkable achievement was commemo- 
rated by a testimonial to Jennings, signed by 
representatives of the best classes in New 
York. 

Jennings returned to London in 1876 tc 
devote himself to literature, founded and 
edited ' The Week/ a newspaper which did 
not meet with much success, and became a 
contributor to the ' Quarterly Review/ foi 
the publisher of which, John Murray, he 
acted as reader. In 1877 he had charge oi 
the city article in the ' World/ He was an 
active pedestrian, and published ' Field Paths 
and Green Lanes: being Country Walks, 
chiefly in Surrey and Sussex T (1877 &c. fixt 
editions), followed by ' Rambles among the 
Hills in the Peak of Derbyshire and the South 
I Downs ' (1880), with some charmingwood- 
| cuts after sketches by Mr. A. H. Hallam 
1 Murray. These volumes have nothing of the 
formal character of guide-books, but are racy 
descriptions of secluded country paths inter- 
spersed with stories of quaint rural wav- 
farere. In 1882-3 he wrote a novel, *Tne 
Millionaire/ said to depict Jay Gould, the 
American, which appeared in ( Blackwood's 
Magazine/ and was afterwards published 
anonymously (1883, 3 vols.) 

His most important literary undertaking 
was to edit ' The Croker Papers : the Cor- 
respondence and Diaries of the late Rt. 
Hon. John Wilson Croker, Secretary to the 
Admiralty from 1809 to 1830' (London, 
1884, 3 vols. 8vo ; 2nd edit, revised, 1885), 
a duty which he performed with much skill 
and judgment. In November 1885 and July 
1886 he was elected M.P. for Stockport in 
the conservative interest, and became ab- 
sorbed in politics. He was a follower of 
Lord Randolph Churchill [q. v. SuppL], but

dissociated himself when Lord Randolph 
attacked the appointment of the Parnell 
commission in 1889. His last literary work 
was to edit Lord Randolph Churchill's

(1889, 2 vols. 8vo). He acted as London 
correspondent of the ' New York Herald/ 
and published ' Mr. Gladstone : a Study ' 
(1887, cr. 8vo, several editions), a severe 
party attack criticised by Mr. H. J. Leech 
in 'Mr. Gladstone and his Reviler/ 1888.

JENNINGS, Sib PATRICK ALFRED 
(1831-1897), premier of New South Wales, 
was son of Francis Jennings of Newry, a 
merchant, who came of a family long settled 
in that part of Ireland, and his wife, Mary 
O'NeiL He was born at Newry on 17 March 
1831, and educated in that town till he went 
to the high school at Exeter. Intended for 
the bar, he preferred engineering, but ulti- 
mately began life in a merchant's office ; he 
emigrated to the goldfields of Victoria in 
1852. Here he was fairly successful. In 
18»>5 he settled at St. Arnaud and erected 
quartz-crushing mills. 

Jennings soon made an impression in the 
young colony. He was asked to stand for 
the Wimmera in the first Victorian assembly 
(1856), but resolved to devote himself for 
the present to his own business. In 18.^7, 
however, he was made a magistrate, and 
then chairman of the road board, and after- 
wards of the first municipal council, of St. 
Arnaud. 

In 1863 Jennings acquired a large pastoral 
property on the Murrumbidgee in New South 
Wales, and, migrating to that colony, settled 
at Warbreccan in the Riverina district as a 
squatter. Shortly afterwards the agitation 
for the separation of the Riverina district 
and its erection into a separate colony 
reached its height. In 1805 Jennings was 
asked to go to England as a delegate to re- 
present the grievances of the separatists, 
tut declined because he expected the local 
government to tackle the question effec- 
tively. In I860 James Martin [q.v.], then 
premier of New South Wales, personally 
risked the district and nominated several 
leading residents to the legislative council. 
Jennings accepted his nomination and entered 
the council on 28 March 1867. He re- 
signed in 1869, and was elected to the 



assembly as member for the Murray district, 
for which he sat till 1872, when he decided 
to contest Mudgee and was beaten, thus, 
losing his seat in parliament. In 1875 he 
represented the colony at the Melbourne 
exhibition, and in 1876 was commissioner 
for New South Wales, Queensland, and 
Tasmania at the United States centennial 
exhibition at Philadelphia. Here he re- 
ceived a special medal from the States and 
was also thanked by the British authorities. 
From America he travelled to the United 
Kingdom and Europe, and at Rome was 
presented to the pope (Pius IX) and de- 
corated with the order of St. Gregory the 
Great. In December 1878 Jennings was 
offered by Sir John Robertson (1816-1891) 
[q. v.] a seat in his projected cabinet as 
vice-president of the executive council and 
leader of the upper chamber, but the forma- 
tion of this ministry was not completed. In 
1879 he was executive commissioner for 
New South Wales at the international ex- 
hibition held at Sydney, and in connection 
with this service was made a C.M.G. and a 
year later K.C.M.G. In November 1880 he 
once more entered the assembly as member 
for the Bogan. From 6 Jan. to 31 July 
1883 Jennings was vice-president of the exe- 
cutive council in Alexander Stuart's [q. vJ 
ministry. From 10 Oct. to 21 Dec. 1885 
he was colonial treasurer under (Sir) George 
Dibbs. The period was a stormy one in 
colonial politics. Sir John Robertson came 
into power only to be defeated on a vote of 
censure ; Sir Henry Parkes [q.v. Stippl.] was 
condemning severely all parties without 
having strength to form a government. 
Jennings was called upon and attempted to 
form a coalition ministry with Robertson; 
finally, on 2f> Feb. 1886, he became premier, 
holding office as colonial treasurer. The 
questions with which he had to deal were 
those of retrenchment and fresh revenue, 
certain reforms in the civil service, and the 
amendment of the Land Act. His financial 
proposals evoked very determined opposi- 
tion ; Parkes condemns them as a protec- 
tionist effort put forth by a professed free- 
trader. Thev were onlv carried bv extra- 
ordinary expedients and all-night sittings. 
His land tax bill was lost. His colonial se- 
cretary, Dibbs, quarrelled with him and left 
! him. At the end of the session his position 
was greatly weakened, and as he was not 
| wedded to politics, he resigned otlieeon 19. Tan. 
1887, partly perhaps in order that ho might 
; visit England, where he represented the 
colony at the colonial conference in London 
in June and July 1887. After his return 
he practically eschewed local politics; he

council in 1890, and was delegate (or Net

_d at Sydney 
was practically the close of his public life. 
He died at Brisbane at a private hospital on 
11 July 1897, and wu buried at Sydney. 

Jennings is described hy a contemporary as 
' a clear-headed, cultured Irishman ' who 
' turned every honest opponent who came 
into contact with him into an admiring 
friend ' {Sydnry Mail, 17 July 1897, p. 115). 
He did much to promote the cultivation of 
music in New South Wales, aud gave large 
sums for the erection of the organ at Sydney 
University, of which he was a member of 
senate. lie was also a trustee of the Na- 
tional Art Gallery. He was a fellow of St. 
John's (Roman catholic) College in Sydney, 
a knight grand cross of Pius IX in 1887, 
and was made LL.D. of Dublin in 1887. 

JenningB married, in Wll, Mary Anne, 
daughter of Martin Shanahan of Marnoo, 
Victoria; she died in 1887. He left two 
sons and a daughter.

JERRARD, GEORGE BIRCH (d. 18(13), 
mathematician, was the son of Major-general 
Joseph Jerrard (A 23 Nov. 1858). He 
studied at Trinity College, Dublin, and gra- 
duated B.A. in 1827. He is chiefly known 
for his work in connection with the theory 
of equations. Between 1K32 and 1835 he 

fubli&hed bis ' Mathematical Researches' 
Bristol, 8vo), in which he made important 
contributions towards the solution of the 
general ouintic equation. In 1858 ho pub- 
fished a further treatise on the subject, en- 
titled ' An Essay on the Resolution of Equa- 
tions' { London, 8 vo). The theory of equations 
has since undergone great development, 
Arthur Caylev [q. v. Suppl.] and Sir James 
Cockle [q. v. Suppl."! being among those who 
have devoted attention to it. 

Jerrard died on 23 Nov. 1863 at Long

his brother, Frederick William Hill Jerrard 
(A 18 Feb. 16*4).

son of General William Jervois, K.H., colonel 
of the 76th foot, and his wife Elizabeth, 
daughter of William Maitland, waa born at 
I Cowes, Isle of Wight, on 10 Sept. 1821. 
| Educated at Dr. Burney's academy at Goa- 
j port and Mr. Barry's school at Woolwich, 
' he entered the Royal Military Academy at 
1 Woolwich in February 1837, and obtained 
a commission as second lieutenant in the 
royal engineers on 19 March 1839. Hi* 
further commissions were dated : lieutenant

colonel-commandant of royal engineer* 
28 June 1893. 

After the usual course of professional in- 
struction at Chatham, where his survey 
sheets were framed as a pattern for the sur- 
vev school, and after a few months' duty at 
ft oolwich, Jervois embarked on 26 March 
1841 for the Cape of Good Hope. Ha was 
employed on the eastern frontier in the 
construction of defensive posts on the Fish 
river to keep the Kaffirs in check. Toward* 
the end of 1842 he was appointed brigade 
major to a force of all arms, sent to Coles- 
berg on the Orange river, under Colonel 
Hare, the lieutenant-governor, to control the 
Boers. He was afterwards employed in 
building a bridge over the Fish river at Fort 
Brown, and in making the main road to 
Fort Beaufort. In 1845 he was appointed 
adjutant of the royal sappers and miners. 
He accompanied Colonel Piper, the com- 
manding royal engineer, to Natal, and, on 
his return overland via Oolesberg to Cape 
Town, made a rough survey of the little- 
known country through which he passed. 

At the beginning of 1847 he accompanied 
General Sir George Berkeley, commanding 
the troops, to Kaffirland, where he mode a 
sketch survey of British Kaflraria, extend- 
ing from the Keiskama river to the Kei 
river, and from Fort Hare to the sea, some 
two thousand square miles, of which eleven 
hundred were surveyed during the war under 
the protection of 'military escorts. This 
survey proved of considerable value in sub- 
sequent wars, and thirty years later was the 
only map with any pretension to accuracy 
which Lord Chelmsford could find for his 
guidance in that part of the country. On 
his way home in the Devastation, in 1648, 
Jervois connected the sketch sheets of the 



survev. which was published by Arrow smith.

vois was a member of the special committee 
on the application of iron to defence. 

On o Sept. 18U-' he was appointed director 
of works for furl ideations, and as such was 
nominally in administrative charge of all 
adar the ius»ector~general of for- 
tifications, but in reality he was the confi- 
dential adviser of successive secretaries of 
state for war on nil questions of defence. 
In September 1863 Jervois was sent to 



wick, ami Bermuda. He also visited tin: 
principal forts of the eastern seaboard of the 
United States during the war between north 
and south. On 27 Nov. l«t!3 he was made 
a companion of the order of the Bath, civil 
division. Both in 1864 and 1866 ho viaited 
Canada oud discussed defence questions with 
the local authorities. His reports were laid

the money was ultimately expended in

The works in course 
home met with plenty of criticism, to which 
Jervois replied with his usual energy and 
success. In 1*{!S he delivered a lecture at 
the [loyal l.'uitcd Service Institution outlie 
' Application of Iron to Fort iticiii. inn; in special 
reference to the Plymouth Breakwater Fort.' 
In the same year the work of the engineers 
was attacked in the House of Commons and

to the -kill shown in adapting original 
designs to altered circumstances and the 
great advance in the power of rilled artillery. 

In l*(i!» Jervois visited Halifax, Bermuda, 
Gibraltar, and Malta, to inspect the works in 
progress. Iu 1*71 and 1872, at the request, 
of the government of India, he visited 
Aden, Perim, Bombay, Calcutta, Rangoon, 
and Moulmein, reporting bis proposals tor 
defending them. While engaged in this 
work he accompanied Lord Mayo, governor- 
general of India, to the Andaman Islands, 
and was close behind him when he was 
assassinated. On 98 May 1874 lie was 
created a knight commander of the order of 
Bt. Michael and St. George in especial re- 
cognition of his services to Canada. On the 
Winding up of the defence loans in the fol- 
lowing year the accounts showed a saving of 
40,000/. on the voted sum of 7,460,000/., s 
result highly creditable to Jervois. 

On 7 April 1875 Jervois was appointed 



governor of the Straits Settlements. On ar- 
rival at Singapore, he visited the treaty 
states and found I'erak in a very unsettled 
condition— he and his party were nearly 
massacred, lie develop! the able policy of 
hi* predecessor, Sir Andrew Clarke, and ap- 
pointed commissioners to administer the 
government in the name of the sultan. The 
murder of Mr. liirch in November, followed 
by the repulse of a small British force at 
Passii^Sala, led Jervois to take energetic 
measures. All available troops in the Straits 
Settlements and at. Hongkong were hurried . 
to the spot, nod, reinforced by troops from i 
India, a successful campaign ensued and j 
the sultan was apprehended. The home go- 
vernment expressed its approval of Jervois's 
energetic measures. lie received the Indian 
war medal and clasp for his services in the 
I'erak expedition. 

While at Singapore Jervois made a valu- 
able report upon the defences required there, 
which forim-d the basis of the scheme carried 
out aome years later. In April 1877 be was 
appointed adviser to the various Australa- 
sian colonies as to the defence of their chief 
ports, and visited New Smith Wales, Vic- 
toria, Queensland, and South Australia. 
While '.'Hanged iu ( his duty he was appointed 
on 6 July to the government of South 
Australia, retaining the duty of defence ad- 
viser to the other Australasian colonies, and, 
after taking over his government, visited 
Tasmania and New Zealand. On 25 May 
1878 he was promoted to be a knight grand 
cross of the order of St Michael and St. 
George. His recommendations as to the 
defences of the Australasian colonies were 
accepted and eventually curried out, and his 
reports were of great assistance to the royal 
commissiim. of which Lord Carnarvon was 
president in 1882, on the defence of British 
possessions and commerce abin.nl. 

Jorvols proved a good governor, and after 
five years in South Australia be was trans- 
ferred to the government of New Zealand iu 
1881', retiring from the military service on 
7 April of the same year. He paid great 
attention to the defence of the principal 
ports of New Zealand, and roused public 
feeling in the colony by bis lectures and 
writings. He was much aided in these en- 
deavours by the war scare in 1885, and had 
the satisfaction of seeing the scheme of de- 
fence completed before the termination of 
his term of office. His prompt action when 
the king of Samoa made overtures to the 
colony to place his dnuiinions under British 
protection, and the Now Zealand ministers 
proposed to send an armed vessel to Samoa, 
saved a serious complii 



Jervois differed from the general opi: 
in Australasia on the question of Chinew 
immigration, believing that, as half the 
Australian continent lies within the tropie, 
it can only be fully developed by coloured 
labour, of which the Chinese is the most 
valuable, In 1888 Jervois attended the 
I'.li'hratinri at Sydney nf the centenary of 
New South Wales, and delivered a remark- 
ably able spcti-h. He left Wellington, New 
Zealand, on the completion of bis term of 
government on 18 March 1881). 'the best and 
most popular governor that New Zealand has 

In 1890 Jervois served on Edward Stan- 
hope's consultal ive committee on coast de- 
fence duties. Hu had strongly advocated, 
on his return home, both in the press and 
by lectures, that (he defence of naval base*

of the navy. The navy, however, consis- 
tently adhered to the fundamental principle 
that its duty is to fight the enemy's ships, 
and declined to be hampered by tin; such 
charge. This somewhat whimsical proposal,

JONES, ilKNl'.V il*31 1899), known as 
' Cavendish.' writer on whist, the eldest son 
of Henry Darriene Jones of 12 Norfolk 
waa born in London on 2 Nov. 
1 father was an ardent devotee of 
whist, and was in 18fiS chosen to be chair- 
man of the Portland Club whist committee, 
which, in connection with James Clay [q.v.j 
\Hitigton Club committee, framed 
the ' Laws of Short Whist,' edited by John 
Lorain.- Baldwin in Hay 1864. Henry was 
educated at King's Coll'ege school ( 1B43-B), 
and proceeded as a student to St. Bartholo- 
mew * Hospital, where be was a pupil of Sir 
William Lawrence. After qualifying in 
1852 as M.R.C.S. and L.S.A., be practised 
for tome sixteen years in tin- neighbourhood 
of Soho Square. In 1809 he retired from 
practice, but retained a connection with bis 
old profession as a member of the court of 
tli" Apothecari-?*' Company. 

at Cambridge, Henry's younger 
brother, Daniel Jones, joined a knot of young 
men of considerable ability, who had at first 
'taken up whist for amusement, but who 
found it offer such a field for intellectual 
■tudr thai thev continued it 9 practice more 
cally'with a view to iU more cotn- 
intion, and to the solution of 
nit problems connected with it.' In 
, a fow years Inter, Henrv was intro- 
.i.i hi* brother's set, of which he 
i the moat advanced member. 




began to make notes upon difficult points and 
to record interesting hands, and he joined 
the club known as the ' Cavendish,' situated 

the back of the Polytechnic, in Oavendiah 
Square. He subsequently became a member 
ol the Portland Club, where he met James 
Clay. His first written contribution on the 
subject of whist appeared in " Bell's Life ' 
for March 1857. In January 186-2, in an 
lein 'Macmillan's Magazine,' William 
Pole f q.v. Suppl.] suggested the utility of u 
handbook embodying a series of model games 

whist. After correspondence with, and 

;ouragement received from, Pole, Jones 
brought out in l8fi2 a small edition of such 
manual entitle! ■ Principle of Whist stated 
in I '^['l.itii'-'l by ' 'iivernlisli.' A fifth edition 
.■as called for "in 1 WW, when the title was 
altered to'The Laws and Principles of Whist.' 
The eighth edition of 1868 was recast, a 
ninth edition was dedicated to James Clay, 
the tenth contains new matter, while the 
eleventh, of 1886, introduces the subject of 
American leads, a* promulgated by Nicholas 
Trist of New Orleans. 'Cavendish' very soon 
came to be regarded ns the standard autho- 
rity upon whist, and was (so t he story runs) 
appealed to as such hy, among other promi- 
nent player,-. Jones's own father, though the 
latter had no idea that the writer was his 
son Henry, of whose powers as a whist player 
he had formed a lar from commensurate 
opinion. Its distinctive merit as a manual 
was not novelty of doctrine, but lucidity, 
literary skill, and above all theoretical cohe- 
rence. He was, however, the first to lay 
down clearly the true principles of the dis- 
card, and of the call for trumps. 

Two years after ' Cavendish ' came the 
slender and less exhaustive 'Treatise on Short 
Wbiit,'i)f.I[ames]C[lay]. 'Cavendish ' was 
certainly a great advance upon anything that 
had gone before, on the book of ' Major A,' 
published in 1835, and on the book from 
which the latter was plagiarised, Mat thews's 
'Advice to the Young Whist Player 'of 1804. 
Before this came Payne's 'Maxims,' 1770, 
which for the first time laid down the prin- 
ciple of leading from live trumps ; and before 
him was the 'immortal' Edmund Iloyle, who 

fublishfil hit famous 'Short Treatise' in 
742. 
Immediately upon the appearance of his 
'classic' in 1862 'Cavendish ' became whist 
editor of the ' Field,' and he soon afterwards 
became 'Pastime' editor of 'The Queen,' 
producing at the same time numerous 
manuals on games. Upon the subject of 
which he was an undoubted master he pro- 
duced ' Card Essays,' 1879 (with a dedica-

him, and he was successful beyond most 
Welsh bishops (Thirlwall not excepted) in 
avoiding controversies, and in maintaining 
amicable relations with Welsh noncon- 
formists. 

like most of his friends at Trinity he had 
been deeply interested in the tractarian 
movement, the more so in his case perhaps, 
owing to his personal affection for Isaac 
Williams [q. v.], who was a native of Llangyn- 
felyn parish, where Jones's Welsh home was 
situated. But a still earlier attachment to 
evangelicalism, corrected by his cultured 
historical sense, led him, after the secession 
of Newman, to develop his sympathies in 
the direction of the evangelical wing of the 
moderate school, but with a whole-hearted 
loyalty to the prayer-book. Among the 
benefits which he ascribed to the Oxford 
movement was the greater dignity and 
solemnity with which it had invested re- 
ligious functions, whence perhaps (and owing 
also to his fondness of music, cf. Stephens, 
Freeman, i. 90) his private admission that 
he liked a few ritualists ' to give colour ' to 
his diocese. 

Throughout- his life Jones was always 
methodical and minutely accurate, though 
his range of knowledge was of the widest. 
A natural warmth of reeling was concealed 
under a somewhat precise manner. In pre- 
sence, his short stature was compensated by 
a quiet dignity. To the last he took a lively 
interest in archaeological research, and his pre- 
sidential addresses to the Cambrian Archaeo- 
logical Association at Carmarthen and Lam- 
peter in 1876 and 1878, and to the British 
Archaeological Association at Tenby in 1884, 
were models of their kind. 

He died at Abergwili Palace on 14 Jan. 
1897, and was buried on the 20th in the 
family vault at Llangynfelyn. The bishop 
was twice married: first, on 10 Sept. 1856 
(during his residence at Oxford), to Frances 
Charlotte, second daughter of the Rev. 
Samuel Hoi worthy, vicar of Croxall, Derby- 
shire, who died without issue on 21 Sept. 
1^81 ; and secondly, on 2 Dec. 1886, to Anne, 
fifth daughter of Mr. G. H. Loxdale of Aig- 
burth, Liverpool, by whom he left issue a 
son and two daughters. 

The following were his published works : 
1. 'Vestiges of the Gael in Gwynedd/ Lon- 
don (Tenby printed), 1851, 8vo. 2. 'The 
History and Antiquities of St. David's,' 
written jointly with E. A. Freeman ; issued

illustrations by Jewitt, engraved by Le 
Keux. 3. ' Notes on the OEdipus Tyrannus

8vo. 6. ' The Peace of God : Sermons on 
the Reconciliation of God and Man' (chiefly 
preached before the University of Oxford), 
London, 1869, 8vo. 

His translation into Greek anapaestic verse 
of Tennyson's 'Dying Swan' in the Antho- 
logia Oxoniensis deserves to be mentioned 
as probably the most beautiful thing in that 
collection. Single sermons and the episcopal 
charges were also published separately shortly 
after their delivery. A selection of his ' Ordina- 
tion Addresses' was issued after his death 
(Oxford, 1900, 8vo), with a preface by Canon 
Gregory Smith, who, in his ' Holy Days' 
(1900, p. 67), has delineated the chief traits 
of the bishop's character. 

The restoration of the ruinous eastern 
chapels at St. David's Cathedral is being 
carried out as a memorial to Bishop Jones 
and of his two friends, Deans Allen and 
Phillips, who both died within a few months 
after the bishop. A portrait of the bishop 
in his robes, painted by Eddie in 1882, is 
preserved at Gwynfryn.

jam in Jowett of London and Isabella Lang 
home. The family originally came from 
Manningham, near Bradford in Yorkshire, 
where at one time they owned land. Ben- 
jamin was born in the parish of Camberwell 
on 1") April 1817. lie is said to have been a 
pale delicate-looking boy of unusual mental 
precocity, and when he learned Greek with 
the tutor of his cousins, the Langhornes, 
' they had no chance against him in their 
(Jrei'k lessons 1 (Life and Letter*, i. 30). His 
chief companion in these years was his elder 
sister Emily ; ' the two would shut them- 
selves up in a room with their books and 
st udy for hours.' 

On 1« June 1829 he was admitted to St. 
Paul's school. The high master at the time 
was Dr. John Sleath [jq. v.] of Wadham 
College. Here he acquired two methods of 
st udv which he always impressed on his pupils 
at a later time ; he learned large quantities of 
Greek and Latin poetry by heart, and he 
constantly retranslated into Greek or Latin 
passages which he had previously translated 
into English. Among his contemporaries at 
the school were [Baron] C. E. Pollock, [Lord] 
JIannen. and A. S. Eddis of Trinity College, 
Cambridge. 

In November 1835 he gained an open 
scholarship at Balliol College. About a 
year afterwards (October 1830) he came into 
residence. Among the scholars of the time 
were [Dean] Stanley, [Vice-chancellor] 
Wickens, Stafford Xorthcote [Lord Iddes- 
leigh], J. G. Lonsdale, [Dean] Lake, andTDean] 
( Joulrmrn ; and among the fallows [Arch- 
bishop] Tait,[Dean] Scott, and W. G. Ward. 

In Dr. Sleath's opinion Jowett was ' the 
best Latin scholar whom he had ever sent 
to college,' -and this opinion was confirmed 
when in the spring ot 1837 he gained the 
Hertford (University) scholarship for Latin. 
In the next vear he obtained a success even 
more brilliant, being elected a fellow of the 
college while still an undergraduate (Novem- 
ber 1838). In the following summer he 
obtained a first class in literte huma?iiores. 
Already he had begun to take private pupils, 
the first of whom were Thomas Henry Carter- 
wards Lord) Farrt?r [q. v. Suppl.] and his 
brother Oliver. He graduated 15. A. in 1839, 
and M.A. in 1842. In 1841 he obtained 
the chancellor's prize for the Latin essay, 
and in 1842 he was appointed by Dr. Jen- 
kyns, the master, to a tutorship in the col- 
lege, a post which he retained till his elec- 
tion to the mastership in 1870. Jle took 
deacon's orders in 1842, and priest's in 1845. 

Jowett had been brought up amid evan- 
gelical views, which were traditional in his 
family. He now found himself in the 



midst of the Oxford movement, and wai 
peatlv attracted by William George "Ward 
q. v.*], with whom he was brought into 
Wily contact. Years afterwards, when the 
two friends met after a long separation, 
Jowett said: 'Ward reminded me that I 
charged him with shallow logic, and that he 
retorted on me with misty metaphysics. 
That was perhaps not an unfair account of 
the state of the controversy between us.' 
In February 1841 Newman's tract on the 
articles — the famous 'No. XC — appeared. 
It was at once attacked and condemned, and 
the controversy had a peculiar interest for 
the Balliol common room. For Tait was 
one of the first to move in the attack, and 
Ward, who supported the tract, was dis- 
missed from his lectureship at the college in 
the following June (Church, Oxford Move- 
ment, c. xiv., esp. pp. 252 IT.) It appears 
that Jowett was somewhat bewildered by 
the shifting currents around him. ' Bnt for 
the providence of God/ he said at a later 
time, 'I might have become a Roman 
Catholic/ In 1844 the crisis in the move- 
ment came. Newman had retired from St. 
Mary's to Littlemore, and Ward published 
his ' Ideal of a Christian Church.* Jowett, 
with A. P. Stanley to lead, fought on the 
side of toleration, and both were present at 
the scene of Ward's degradation on 13 Feb. 
1845, a day which Dean Church regards as 
the birthday of Oxford liberalism (/. c. p. 
340). 

Meanwhile Jowett was working earnestly 
with pupils in college, travelling on the 
continent in the long vacations. In 1844 
he made the acquaintance of some of the 
most distinguished German scholars of the 
time, G. Hermann, Bekker, Lachmann, and 
Ewald, and consulted Erdmann, the his- 
torian of philosophy, on the best method of 
approaching the philosophy of Hegel, by 
whose teaching he was now becoming 
fascinated. For some years he remained an 
eager student of Hegel's writings, and even 
translated a good deal of the logic in con- 
junction with [Archbishop] Temple (Life, i. 
120, 129, 142). He seems also to have been 
greatly stimulated by Hegel's ' History of 
Philosophy ' in the lectures which he was 
now giving as tutor, on the ' Fragments of 
the Early Greek Philosophers ' — lectures in 
which he first gave proof of his peculiar 
powers. From 1846 onwards his position as 
tutor was assured ; he was the centre of a 
number of pupils, who were devoted to him, 
and proved the value of his teaching by their 
success in the schools. In 1848 he "began 
the practice, which he continued till near 
the end of his life, of taking pupils with him 



Jowett 

in the vacation to some quiet healthy place. 
Like William Sewell [q. v.] of Exeter, he 
became a student of Plato, and it was greatly 
due to him that Plato was included in the 
list of books which could be offered in the 
schools (Life, i. 132). This incursion into 
a new field of philosophy he balanced by 
lectures on political economy. His tours 
abroad became more rare as the years passed 
on, but in April 1848 he visited Paris in 
the days of the revolution with Stanley, 
Francis Turner Palgrave [q. v. Supplj, and 
[Sir] Robert Burnett Morier [q. v. J (see 
STJLSXEr, Life, i. 390). 

Yet theology was the chief study of these 
days. For some years past Jowett had 
been on terms of intimate friendship with 
Stanley, and finally the two friends planned 
an edition of St. Paul's epistles. Jowett 
undertook the Thessalonians, Galatians, and 
Romans; Stanley the Corinthians. From 
these labours they were drawn away for a 
time by the movement for reform which now 
swept over Oxford. Stanley and Jowett had 
already begun a joint work on university 
reform, when in looO a commission was ap- 
pointed to take evidence on the subject. Of 
this commission Stanley was the secretary. 
From the evidence which Jowett gave be- 
fore it we see that he wished to retain the 
college system, but was in favour of increasing 
the number of professors. That he had in 
view at this time any extension of university 
privileges to non-collegiate students there is 
no proof. But he was clearly on the side of 
the poor student, and did not wish to see 
the university possessed by the * gentleman 
heresy* (Life, i. 18.T). He was a public ex- 
aminer in 1849, 1850, 1851, and 1853. 

Jowett was now known beyond Oxford. 
He was consulted by Sir CTrevelyan in re- 
gard to examinations for the Indian civil 
service, and eventually became a member of 
Lord Macaulav's committee, which reported 
in 1*54. To the end of his life he retained 
a lively interest in this subject, and indeed 
in everything connected with India (see 
letters to Lord Lansdowne in Letter*, 1899). 

"When Dr. Richard Jenkyns [q.v.] died in 
1854, Jowett was put forward as a candidate 
for the mastership, but the election fell on 
Robert Scott (1811-1887) [q. v.] This re- 
pulse made a deep impression on Jowett's 
sensitive nature ; it was, in fact, the beginning 
of a somewhat distressful period of his life, 
during which he felt himself in little sym- 
pathy with his college and Oxford. The first 
effect of it was to send him back with re- 
newed energy to his unfinished work on St. 
Paul. In the next summer, on the same day 
with Stanley's edition of the Corinthians, his 



5* 



Jowett 



edition of the Thessalonians, Galatians, and 
Romans appeared. The publication of this 
book formed an epoch in Jowett's life. 

To the stricter school of philologists the 
commentary seemed to be vitiated by the 
view which Jowett took of St. Paul's use of 
language. His ablest critic, [Bishop] Light- 
foot, strongly protested against the charge of 
vagueness which Jowett brought against the 
Greek of the New Testament period; and of 
St. Paul especially he maintained that his 
antecedents were such that he could hardly 
fail to speak or write Greek with accuracy, 
while Jowett was inclined to look on the 
apostle as one whose thoughts outran his 
power of expression, so that his meaning 
must be gathered from the context rather 
than by a strictly grammatical treatment of 
the words (see Journal of Sacred and Classical 
Philology, iii. p. 104, ff. 1856). The essays, 
which were generally acknowledged to be 
the most important part of the work, were 
partly condemned as heretical, especially 
the essay on the atonement, and were also 
thought to be wanting in definite conclusions, 
though no one could deny that deep and 
suggestive thoughts were contained in them. 
1 Those who look only for positive results will 
be greatly disappointed with Mr. Jowett's 
essays. On the other hand, those who are 
satisfied witli being made to think instead of 
being thought for, and are willing to follow 
out for themselves important lines of re- 
flexion, when suggested to them, will find 
no lack of interest, or instruction in these 
volumes. The value of Mr. Jowett's labours 
is far from consisting solely in the definite 
results attained, which are poorer than 
might have been looked for. The recon- 
structive process bears no proportion to the 
destructive. But, after every abatement 
which has to be made on this score, these 
volumes will still hold their position in the 
foremost ranks of recent literature for depth 
and range of thought ' (Lkjhtfoot, /. c). 
The book could not fail to attract attention, 
even beyond theological readers. Bagehot 
said that Jowett had shown by ' chance ex- 
pressions ' that he had exhausted impending 
controversies years before they arrived, and 
had perceived more or less the conclusion at 
which the disputants would arrive lon« before 
the public issue was joined ' (Pin/sirs and 
Politic*, 8th ed. pp. 110, 117). In 1S59 a 
second edition was published, in which the 
essay on the atonement was rewritten, not 
with any view of retracting tht» virws put 
forward in the first, but to explain them 
more clearly and meet some of the miscon- 
ceptions which had arisen. 

In the same summer (1855) Jowett was 

e2 



Jowett

Jowett 



appointed to the regius professorship of 
Greek, vacant by the death of Dean Gaisford 
[q. v.] Those who condemned his views 
were roused to action by this preferment. 
Under an almost forgotten statute Jowett 
was denounced bv Dr. John David Macbride 



[q. v.] and the Rev. Charles Pourtales Go- 
lightly [q. v.] to the vice-chancellor (Dr. 
Cotton of Worcester) as having denied the 



catholic faith. Dr. Cotton summoned him 
to subscribe the articles anew in his pre- 
sence, and to this Jowett submitted. It 
was a mean attack, which might create a 
prejudice, but could lead to no definite result. 
Almost meaner still was the agitation, pro- , 
longed over ten years, by which the Greek 
chair was deprived of any addition to the 
statutory emoluments which had been 
hitherto paid. Of the four chairs founded 
by Henry VIII at Oxford, and endowed by 
him with 40/. each, the chair of Greek was 
the only one which had never received in- 
creased emolument, and this continued to 
be the case in spite of repeated appeals to ; 
convocation till 186*5, when Christ Church 
consented to raise the income to 500/. a year. 
It was, in fact, made clear that estates had 
been granted to that college for the purpose, 
and that the chair must be endowed from 
some source was rendered inevitable by the 
action of Jowett's friends, who subscribed 
2,000/. towards the deficiency — which Jowett 
refused to accept — and by his own action 
as professor. 

For from his election Jowett had departed 
altogether from the traditional lines. To 
edit dictionaries and scholia was not to his 
taste at all ; he began a series of lectures on 
the ' Republic of Plato* and the ' Fragments 
of the Early Greek Philosophers/ and at 
the same time allowed any undergraduate i 
who wished, whether belonging to his own 
college or not, to bring him, for correction, 
translations into Greek prose or verse two 
or even three times a week. This was a 
very severe addition to his tutorial work. 
Hut his lectures were a success. Greek 
scholarship received a stimulus throughout ! 
the university, and outside Oxford his de- 
voted labour on his pupils could not but 
tell in his favour, whatever his theological 
opinions might be. 

In the ten years following the election to 
the professorship Jowett fell deeper still j 
under suspicion of heresy. In the second 
edition of his « Epistles of St. Paul' (ia59) 
he had repeated Lis views, and in this he 
had intended to include an essay on the 
' Interpretation of Scripture.' This essay he 
finally kept back till the next year, when it 
appeared in ' Essays and Reviews/ a work 



which created a panic in the church. The 
volume was promoted bv the Rev. Harry 
Bristow Wilson [q.v.],of St. John's College, 
Oxford, and among the contributors, besides 
Jowett and Wilson, were Archdeacon Row- 
land Williams [q.v.J, the present Archbishop 
of Canterbury, Mark Pattison [q. v.], and 
others. The book went through many edi- 
tions, ' for though we have now got to the 
stage of affecting astonishment at the sen- 
sation produced dv the avowal of admitted 
truths in that work, nobody who remembers 
the time can doubt that it marked the ap- 
pearance of a very important development 
of religious and philosophical thought' 
(Leslie Stephen, Studies of a Biographer, 
ii. 129). Wilson and Williams were brought 
before the court of arches and suspended for 
a year, but this judgment was suDsequentlv 
reversed by Lorci Westbury. After tne ver- 
dict of the dean of arches an attack was 
made upon Jowett. The case was opened in 
the vice-chancellor's court at Oxford (20 Feb. 
1863), when Mountague Bernard [q. v.] ap- 
peared as the vice-chancellor s assessor. On 
J owett's part it was protested that the court 
had no jurisdiction in the matter. Bernard, 
while rejecting the protest, refused to order 
Jowett to appear ana to admit articles on the 
part of the promoters of the case. Counsel 
advised against an application to the court 
of queen's bench for a mandamus, and the 
prosecution was dropped. 

For a time Jowett * held his tongue about 
theology, and was glad to have done so, 
because he began to see things more clearly' 
(1866). But in 1870 he was planning in 
connection with Wilson a new volume of 
' Essays/ in which he intended to write on 
the great religions of the world. In Sep- 
tember of that year he was elected master 
of Balliol College, and the projected volume 
never appeared. Theology occupied a great, 
deal of his thought and time ; he preached 
not only in the college chapel but in the 
university pulpit, in Westminster Abbey, 
and elsewhere. But nothing was published, 
lie would not allow any of his sermons to 
be printed, or his * St. Paul' to appear in a 
new edition. He wished to attain to greater 
clearness and certainty, and hoped that these 
would come with time ; but he took on him- 
self other labours which left no leisure for 
elaborating his views. Yet his theological 
work had not been in vain ; he had pointed 
out where changes must be made if theology 
is to retain a hold on thoughtful minds, and 
if some of his positive conceptions were re- 
garded as ' misty ' and ' vague/ he was clear 
enough in maintaining what he called ' the 
central light of all religion/ the divine jus-

tke and truth. What he wrote ' was much 
read and pondered by the more intellectual 
sort of undergraduates' (Patek). 

From 1860 to 1870 his labours were such 
as would have overwhelmed any other man. 
At one time he writes that he is seeing" every 
undergraduate in college once a week ! In 
the vacations his hours were given to Plato. 
He had begun with the idea of a commentary 
on the ( Republic,' a work which he never 
dropped, though he did not live to finish it. 
But he soon felt that a complete analysis of 
all Plato's writings was required if any one 
wished thoroughly to understand the ' He- 
public,* and the analysis in time became an 
analysis and translation. To this must be 
added the work of the professorship. One 
who attended his lectures at the time spoke 
of them as being ' informal, unwritten, and 
seemingly unpremeditated, but with many 
a long-remembered gem of expression, or 
delightfully novel idea, which seemed to be 
lying in wait whenever, at a loss for a 
moment in his somewhat hesitating dis- 
course, he opened a book of loose notes' 
(Life, i. 330). 

About I860 he became, with the support 
of fellows who had been his pupils, a pre- 
ponderating influence in the common room 
of Balliol College. Much time was devoted 
to the organisation of education in the 
college and the university. Arrangements 
w»*re made for inter-collegiate lectures, and 
Scottish professors were invited to give lec- 
tures in the summer term, when theirlabours 
in the north were at an end. But his chief 
object was to lessen the expense of an Oxford 
career. For this purpose he persuaded the 
college to found more scholarships and ex- 
hibitions, and to establish a hall where, as 
he hoped, young men would be able to live 
for little, while enjoying the benefits of the 
college system. In the end the movement 
which he supported was carried on a larger 
scale bv the universitv; the restriction was 
removed by which students were compelled 
to reside within the college walls, ana non- 
collegiate students came into being. In the 
same years a considerable part of the college 
was rebuilt. Jowett was convinced that 
' not a twentieth part of the ability in the 
country ever comes to the university.' In 
order to attract men from new classes he 
persuaded the college to alter the subjects 
for examination in some of the exhibitions, 
adding physical science and mathematics to 
classics. 

By his election to the mastership (7 Sept. 
1870) Jowett attained the position which 
he most coveted. He now enjoyed more 
leisure than hitherto, and he had as much 



power as the head of a house could have, 
For some years after his election he was 
much occupied with the enlargement of the 
college. A new hall was built (1877), and 
the old one transformed into a library for 
the use of the undergraduates. Later on a 
hope, formed many years before, was realised, 
and a field for cricket and football was 
secured for the college To this, as to every- 
thing connected with Balliol, Jowett gave 
liberally from his private purse, and finally 
he built at his own expense a house for a 
tutor adjacent to the field. 

Jowett's interests in education were not 
confined to Oxford. The University College 
at Bristol owed much to him, he strongly 
supported the claims of secondary education 
and university extension, and at the time of 
his death he was busy with a scheme for 
bringing the university and the secondary 
schools together. When it was arranged in 
1874-5 that the age of the candidates for 
the Indian civil service should be fixed at 
seventeen to nineteen, and that successful 
candidates should pass two years of proba- 
tion at a university, Jowett made arrange- 
ments to receive a number of candidates at 
Balliol College, and helped in establishing a 
school of oriental languages. In the uni- 
versity commission of 1877-81 he was of 
course greatly interested. He had not much 
svmpathy with research, beyond certain 
limits, and on the other hand he urged 
strongly the claims of secondary education 
in the large towns, a movement in which 
he thought it would be wise for the uni- 
versity to take a part. The better organisa- 
tion of the teaching of the non-collegiate 
students was strongly pressed, and, above 
all, the retention to a large extent of prize 
fellowships, on which Jowett placed great 
value. 

In 1*71 the translation of Plato appeared 
in four volumes. This was an event which 
determined to a great extent the literary 
work of the rest of Jowett's life — not that 
he * had done with theology and intended 
to lead a new life' (Plato, Euthyphro, end), 
for he was always hoping to return to theo- 
logy when he could escape from other labours 
— but the translation of Plato had a rapid 
sale, and it was necessnrv to revise it for 
a second edition (5 vols. 1876). Many 
thoughts which might have appeared in an 
independent work on theology or morals 
were now embodied in the introductions to 
the dialogues. From Plato he was led on to 
a translation of Thucydides, with notes on 
the Greek text (2 vols. 1881 ). From 1882 to 
1886 he was vice-chancellor, and carried into 
the administration of the office the restless

lectureships ' in Greek philosophy and his- 
tory (or literature) at Balliol College. 

He received the honorary degree of doctor 
of theology at Leyden, 1875, of LL.D. at 
Edinburgh, 1884, and of LL.D. at Cam- 
bridge, 1890. 

There are several portraits of Jowett : 
(1) In crayons, bv George Richmond, R.A., 
about 1859, at Balliol College ; (2) in crayons, 
by Laugee, 1871, in the possession of Pro- 
fessor Dicey; (3) in oils, by Mr. G. F. Watts, 
R. A., in the hall of Balliol College ; (4) in 
pastels, by the Cavaliere C. M. Ross, at 
Balliol College ; (5) in water-colours, by the 
Lady Abercromby, 1892, in the hall of 
Balliol College ; the head was subsequently 
repainted by the same lady, and is at the 
master's lodge. 

Jowett's energy and industry in literary 
work were more than equalled by his de- 
votion to his pupils and friends. ' He had 
the genius of friendship/ and was never so 
happy as when visiting and entertaining 
friends, or contributing in any way to their 
happiness. A long succession of pupils re- 
garded him with the greatest affection, and 
at the close of his life the friends of his youth 
were his friends still, for he never lost them. 
Among the earliest were Lord Farrer, Pro- 
fessor W. Y. Sellar, Sir A. Grant, T. C. 
Sandars, F. T. Palgrave, Theodore Walrond, 
IVofessorll. J. S. Smith. These were followed 
by Lord Bowen, W. L. Newman, Justice 
Wright, Professor T. H. Green, Lyulph 
Stanley, Sir C. P. Ilbert, and later still by 
Sir W. R. Anson, Sir F. II. Jeune, Lord 
Lansdowne, Sir Arthur Godley, Andrew 
Lang, Professor W. Wallace, Professor Caird, 
Lord Milner, Sir G. Baden-Powell, and 
many others. It was his delight to have 
some of these pupil friends at the master's 
lodge for Sunday, where he also brought 
together, whenever he could, some of the 
most distinguished men of his time. Such 
were Lowell, W. W. Goodwin, O. Wendell 
Holmes, Huxley, M. Arnold, Turgenieff, 
Browning, Froude, II. M. Stanley, Dr. 
Martineau, G. Eliot, Kenan, Ruskin. As a 
host he was most careful and solicitous of 
the comfort of his guests, but in his conver- 
sation he was often reserved. A competent 
judge wrote of him : * A disciple of Socrutes 
he valued speech more hignly than any 
other gift, yet he was always hampered by 
a conscious imperfection and by a difficulty 
in sustaining and developing his thoughts in 
society. . . . He was seldom more than 
the third party intervening' (J. D. Rogers, 
see Life, li. 157). In a tete-a-tete conver- 
sation he was often perversely silent, and 
gaps wen; almost painful. But with one or 



two congenial friends he would talk unre- 
mittingly till midnight, and even in his 
serious illness he insisted on coming down to 
breakfast that he ' might have a little cheer- 
ful conversation.' He loved to tell stories 
and to have them told to him, or to discuss 
subjects in which he had an interest, in the 
hope of gaining clearer insight. He had 
a wonderful power of fixing a discussion in 
a phrase : ' Respectability is a great foe to 
religion/ he said at the close of a discussion 
on chapel and church; 'The practice of 
divines has permanently lowered the standard 
of truth ' was his severe sentence on theo- 
logical criticism. In his letters to friends 
he felt able to pour himself out with less re- 
straint than in conversation, and here we 
often find him at his best, light-hearted, 
cheerful, amusing, and devoted to his friends, 
endeavouring to comfort them in distress 
or bereavement, and to help them in diffi- 
culty. 

Jowett formed no school, and was not the 
leader of a party in religion or philosophy. 
A leader in the church he could not be after 
the publication of his 'St. Paul/ and he 
never wished to leave the church for any 
form of nonconformity. His critical in- 
stincts led him in one direction, his re- 
ligious feeling drew him in another. Thus 
his speculations led him to ' irreconcilable 
contrasts' (Leslie Stephen, op. cit. ii. 
141), but he did not * pretend that such con- 
trasts did not exist ; ' it was because he 
pointed them out with unusual force and 
freedom that he was regarded as heretical. 
In philosophy he was content to be critical 
(see above) ; he saw that one philosophy 
had always been succeeded by another, and 
the leader of to-day was forgotten to- 
morrow ; each therefore, he concluded, had 
grasped part of the truth, but not the 
whole truth. His speculations ended in 
compromise, and thus, here also, he was 
unfitted to be a leader. For himself he 
had almost a horror of tailing under one set 
of ideas to the exclusion of others. ' He 
stood at the parting of many ways/ and 
wrote i No thoroughfare ' upon them all, says 
Mr. Stephen, severely but not unjustly (loc. 
cit. p. 143) ; and after all, in doing so, 
Jowett only went a step lieyond the philo- 
sopher who condemns all systems but his 
own. Yet indirectly he left his mark even 
on philosophy. By him his pupil T. II. 
Green was stimulated to the study of Hegel, 
and no influence has been greater in Oxford 
for the last thirty years than Green's. But 
the chief traces of Jowett's influence will be 
I found in other spheres. His essays and 
! translations must secure him a high place

KENNEDY. VANS . 17S+-1S4<3>. major- 
general. Sanskrit and Persian scholar, was 
b*"jrn at Plnmore in the pariah of Ayr, Scot- 
land, lie belonged :o an old Ayrshire 
tamilr. and was connected with the houses 
of L'adailL* and E*rlintoun. Hi^ father was 
Itobert Kenneily ot Pinmore. and his mother 
Rob 'ma. (Iiughr^r of John Vans of Barabar- 
roch, Wigtownshire, who on marrying' his 
cousin assumed the name of .Vgnew. Robert 
Kennedy wa>> mined by the failure of the 
Ayr bank, and had to sell Pinmore and re- 
tire to E:linburgh, where he died in 1790. 
The oar- of his numerous children then 
devolved on the widow, who was a woman 
of great worth and ability. Major-general 
Kennedy was her youngest son. and one of 
his sisters was Grace Kennedy ^q. v.] 

Kennedy was educated at Edinburgh, 
at Rerkhamsted. and finally at Monmouth, 
and was noted in youth lor his studious 
habits. On the completion of his fourteenth 
year he returned to Edinburgh, and, having 
obtained a cadet ship, he sailed for Bombay 
in 1SX). Shortly after his arrival he was 
employed with his corps, the 1st battalion 
of the '2nd grenadiers, against the people 
of the Malabar district, and received a wound 
in his neck, from the effects of which he 
sutfered all his life. In 1807 he became 
Persian interpreter to the Peshwa's sub- 
sidiarv force at Sirur, then commanded by 
the Colonel W. Wallace (d. 1809) who, 
according to the * Imperial Gazetteer of In- 
dia/ is still worshipped as a saint bv the 
Hindus. While at Sirur Kennedy had fre- 
quent opportunities of meeting Sir Barry 
(.'lose and Sir James Mackintosh, both of 
whom greatly admired him. In 1817 he 
was appointee! judge-advocate-general to the 
Bombay army, and on 30 Sept. of the same 
year he contributed a paper on Persian 
literature to the Literary Society of Bombay. 
Mountstuart Elphinstone, who described 
Kennedy as the most learned man of his 
acquaintance, gave him the appointment of 
Maratha and Gujrati translator of the regu- 
lations of government, but the post was 
abolished a few months after Elphinstone's 
retirement. He held the office of judge- 



Kennish

Keppel 



advocate-general till 1835, when he was 
removed by Sir John Keane. After that he 
was appointed oriental translator to the 
government, and he held this office till his 
death. 

Kennedy was throughout life a student, 
and he seems to have belonged to the type 
of the recluse and self-denying scholar. lie 
is described as working sixteen hours a day, 
and as spending all his money on manu- 
scripts and munshies, and in relieving the 
wants of others. He contributed several 
papers to the Bombay branch of the Royal 
Asiatic Societv, and in 1824 he published 
at Bombay a Maratha dictionary. In 1828 
he published in London a quarto volume 
entitled * Researches into the Origin and 
Affinity of the Principal Languages of Asia 
and Europe/ and in 1831 he followed this 
up by another quarto entitled ' Researches 
into the Nature and Affinity of Ancient 
and Hindu Mythology .' Both these works 
exhibit much learning and vigorous and 
independent thinking, but are now nearly 
obsolete. The first seems to be the more 
valuable of the two, and contains some in- 
teresting notes, e.g. that at p. 182 on the 
number of Arabic words in the Shahnama. 
Kennedy also wrote five letters on the 
Puranas, and had a controversy with Horace 
Hayman Wilson [q. v.] and Sir Graves 
Champney Haughton [q. v.] He published 
at Bombav in 1 832 a work on military law, 
of which a second edition appeared in 1847. 
He died at Bombay on 29 Dec. 1846, and 
was buried at the old European cemetery at 
Back-Bav.

KENNISH or KINNISH, WILLIAM 
(1799-1862), Manx poet, son of Thomas 
Kennish by bis wife, Margaret (Radcliffe), 
was baptised at Kirk Maughold, Isle of Man, 
on 24 Feb. 1799. Of bumble parentage, he 
was reared as a plougbboy, but in 1821 
entered the navy as a common seaman, 
learned English of his messmates, having 
previously known only his native dialect, 
and rose to be a warrant officer. He was 
ship's carpenter on the Hussar, bearing the 
flag of Sir Charles Ogle upon the* North 
American station, 1829-30, and while sta- 
tioned at Halifax devised a plan for concen- 
trating a ship's broadside with greater effect 
than hitherto attempted upon a given mark. 
Hia plan, which met witn encouragement 



from Captain Edward Boxer of the Hussar, 
waa tried by Sir Charles Napier on board 
the Galatea in 1831, and was recommended 
to the admiralty, to which body Kennish 
also submitted a theodolite of his invention. 
In June 1832 he received the gold Isis medal 
from the Society of Arts. He published his 
essay, on concentrating a ship's broadside, in 
1837 in a handsome quarto, with nineteen 
plates, and subsequently he served upon the 
men-of-war Tribune and Donegal in the 
Mediterranean and in the Channel. But 
he felt that he had received no encourage- 
ment from the admiralty at all commen- 
surate with the labour and money that he 
had expended upon his essay, and he left 
the navy in or about 1841. Three years 
later he published in London ' Mona's Isle 
and other Poems' (1844, 8vo, a scarce 
volume), with a long subscription list of 
naval men. Some of the local pieces, such 
as 'The Curraghs of Lezayre/ more espe- 
cially those in ballad metre, have merit, and 
the book is a mine of Manx folk-lore. Dis- 
appointed at the limited circulation of his 
fame, Kennish went over to America, became 
attached to the United States admiralty, for 
which body he made a survey of the Isthmus 
of Panama, and died at New York on 19 March 
1862, at the age of sixty-three.

KEPPEL, WILLIAM COUTTS,8eventh 
Earl of Albemarle and Viscount Bury 
(1832-1894), born in London on 15 April 
1832, was eldest son of George Thomas 
Keppel, sixtli earl of Albemarle [q. v.], by 
his wife Susan, third daughter of Sir Coutts 
Trotter, bart. Throughout the greater part 
of his life he was known as Viscount Burv, 
his father's second title, lie was educated 
at Eton, and in 1843, when eleven years 
old, was gazetted ensign and lieutenant in 
the forty-third regiment. In 1849 he became 
lieutenant in the Scots guards, and during 
1850 1 lie was private secretary to Lord 
John Russell. In 1852 he went out to 
India as aide-de-camp to Lord Frederick 
Fitzclarence, commander-in-chief at Bom- 
bay. In the following year he came home 
on sick leave, retired from the army, and 
in December 1854 went out to Canada as 
superintendent of Indian affairs for Canada. 
He utilised the knowledge gained in Canada 
in bis 'Exodus of the Western Nations' 
(London, 18H5, 2 vols. 8vo). 'Phis is really

condly, in 1894, to Edith Jane, daughter of

The advancement of temperance was the 
work of Kerr's life. He originated the 
Total Abstinence Society in connection with 
the university of Glasgow, was an early 
member of the United Kingdom Alliance, 
and was the founder and first president of 
the Society for the Study and Cure of In- 
ebriety. For many years he was chairman

vice-president of the Homes for Inebriates 
Association. He was senior consulting phy- 
sician to the Dalrymple Home for Inebriates 
at Rickmansworth, Hertfordshire. The Ine- 
briates Act of 1898 was largely the outcome 
of his labours.

KERR, SCHOMBERG HENRY, ninth 
Marquis of Lothian (1833-1900), diplo- 
matist and secretary of state for Scotland, 
second son of John William Robert, seventh 
marquis of Lothian, by Lady Cecil Chetwynd 
Talbot, only daughter of Charles, second 
earl Talbot, was born at Newbottle Abbey, 
near Dalkeith, on 2 Dec. 1833. His elder 
brother, William Schomberg Robert Kerr, 
born on 12 Aug. 1832, succeeded as eighth 
marquis of Lothian on his father's death, 
14 Nov. 1841, but himself died without 
issue on 4 July 1870. He bequeathed to 
Oxford University a sum of money for the 
foundation of the Marquis of Lothian's 
prize, which is of the annual value of 40/., 
and is awarded for an essay on some point 
in foreign history between the death of 



Romulus Augustulus and that of Frederick 
the Great. 

Schomberg Henry was educated at Glen- 
almond and Oxford, where he matriculated 
from New College on 20 Oct. 1851. He left 
the university without a degree, entered the 
diplomatic service, and was appointed attache 
at Lisbon. He was transferred in 1864 to 
Teheran, and thence in 1855 to Bagdad. 
During the Persian war of 1857 he served 
as a volunteer on the staff of Sir J. Out ram, 
by whom he was publicly thanked at the 
close of the campaign. He was afterwards 
attache at Athens, and in 1862 was ap- 
pointed second secretary at Frankfort. In 
the same capacity he was removed in 1865 
to Madrid, and thence in the same year to 
Vienna. He succeeded his elder brother, 
William Schomberg Robert, as ninth mar- 
quis of Lothian, and fourth baron Ker of 
Kersheugh, Roxburghshire, on 4 July 1870, 
and in right of the latter peerage took his 
seat in the House of Lords on 30 March 
1871. He moved, on 19 March 1874, the 
address in answer to the queen's speech, 
and on 5 Aug. following took the oaths for 
the subordinate office of lord privy seal of 
Scotland, which he retained until death. 
He was sworn of the privy council on 
6 Feb. 1886, and in Lord Salisbury's second 
administration succeeded Mr. Arthur Bal- 
four as secretary for Scotland, and, as such, 
ex-officio keeper of the great seal of Scot- 
land and vice-president of the committee 
of council for education in Scotland 
(11 March 1887). The sphere of his admi- 
nistrative duties was furtner enlarged by a 
statute of the same year (50 & 51 Vict. c. 
52). Ho held office until the fall of the 
administration in August 1892, during 
which period he had charge of the measures 
of 1889 for the reform and re-endow- 
ment of the Scottish universities and the 
reform of Scottish local government, and 
several other measures nearly affecting 
Scottish interests. He was a member of 
the historical manuscripts commission, 
was elected in 1877 president of the Royal 
Society of Antiquaries of Scotland, and re- 
ceived in 1882 the degree of LL.D. from 
the university of Edinburgh, of which he 
was lord rector in 1887-8. He was also 
vice-president of the Royal Scottish Geo- 
graphical Society, and a member of the 
governing body of the Imperial Institute. 
He was elected K.T. in 1878, and a knight of 
grace of the order of St. John of Jerusalem 
in 1899: was colonel from 1878 to 1889, 
and afterwards honorary colonel, of the 
3rd battalion of the royal Scots regiment,

lis only incumbency, he resigned in 1870 
to devote himself to literary work. He had 
already published a * Catechism on Gospel 
History f (London, 1851 , 8vo ; 3rd edit. 1 878), 
and two works suggested by the Irish dis- 
establishment agitation, namely : * A Short 
Account of the Reformation in Ireland/ 
and 'Rights and Liberties of the Church* 
(both London, 1869, 8vo). His energies 
were now mainly devoted to his work on 
Thomas k Kempis, and in 1877 he published 
'The Authorship of the " De Imitatione 
Christ i" ' (London, 8vo); this was followed 
in 1882 by 'Thomas a Kempis and the 
Brothers of Common Life' (London, 2 vols. 
8vo ; 2nd edit. 1884). These two books were 
the fruit of much research in England, Hol- 
land, and Belgium. Kettlewell maintains 
the usually accepted authorship of the * De 
Imitatione/ and collects all that is known 
about the life of Thomas a Kempis. In 
1888 he published 'The Basis of True 
Christian Unity ' (London, 2 vols. 8vo), and 
in 1892 a translation of the ' De Imitatione.' 
He had received the Lambeth M.A. in 1860, 
and in 1892, in recognition of his work, he 
was granted the Lambeth D.D., the queen 
countersigning his diploma. He died at his 
residence, Kesselville, Eastbourne, whither 
he retired in 1870, on 2 Nov. 1893; he was 
twice married, and his widow survives him.

KEUX, JOHN HENRY le (1812-1896), 
engraver. [See Le Keux.] 

KEYMER or KEYMOR, JOHN (Jl. 
1610-1620), economic writer, is said to have 
written as early as 1601 his l Observations 
upon the Dutch Fishing/ which was first 
published by Sir Edward Ford in 1664 
(London, 4to). Keymer had no practical 
knowledge of the fisheries, being ' altogether 
unexperimented in such business ' (Gentle- 
xax, Way to Win Wealth, 1014, p. 3) ; he 
collected his notes from conversation with 
fishermen like Tobias Gentleman [q. v. SuppL] 
and others, with a view to stimulating Eng- 
lish fishery, then almost a monopoly of the 
Dutch. 1 1 is tract was translated into German, 
and published in part xii. of the ' Diarium 
Europjeum/ Frankfort, 1666, 4to; it was 
reissued in English in the ' Phenix ' [sic] 
1707, vol. i., in 'A Collection of choice 
Tracts/ 1721, and in ' A small Collection of 
valuable Tracts relating to the Herring 
Fishery/ 1751. 

Another work by Keymer, addressed to 



James I, on the importance of encouraging 
manufactures in England and increasing 
commerce by reducing customs, is extant 
in the Record Office (State Papers, Dom. 
James I, cxviii. 114). The latter suggestion 
was much in advance of the age, but on 
20 Dec. 1622 Prince Charles, John Williams, 
bishop of Lincoln and Buckingham, were 
joined with others in a commission ' to hear 
the propositions of John Keymer, and con- 
sider whether they will tend to the good of 
I the King and the Commonwealth, as is pre- 
| tended* (Cal. State Papers, Dom. 1619-22, 

L469). Nothing further seems to have 
m done in the matter.

KING, THOMAS (1836-1888), prize- 
fighter, was born in Silver Street, Stepney, 
on 14 Aug. 1835, and as a youth served 
before the mast both in the navy and in 
a trading vessel. About 1868 he obtained 
a position as foreman of labourers at the 
Victoria Docks. His courage in disposing 
of a dock bully known as ' Brighton Bill ' 
commended him to the notice of the ex- 
champion, Jem Ward, who coached him 
with the gloves at the George in Ratclifte 
Highway. On 27 Nov. 1860, on the Kentish 
marshes, he met Tommy Truckle of Ports- 
mouth for 50/. a side, and defeated him in 
forty-nine rounds (sixty-two minutes). He 
was now taken in hand and trained by Nat 
Langham at the Feathers, Wandsworth, for 
a contest with William Evans (' Young 
Broome'), to be followed, if successful, by a 
fight for the championship with Jem Mace, 
the finest boxer in England since the retire- 
ment of Sayers. The betting of two to one 
on King was justified by the event on 21 Oct. 
1861, after a long fight interrupted by the 
police at the seventeenth round, but resumed 
until the forty-third. The fight between 
the i Young Sailor,' as King was called, and 
the * scientific ' Jem Mace of Norwich had 
another issue, King being outclassed after 
displaying the utmost pluck in a contest of 
sixty-eight minutes (28 Jan. 1862). A return 
match, which excited much greater interest, 
took place at Aldershot (26 Nov. 1862). The 
betting was seven to four on Mace, who had 
the best of the fighting, but was knocked 
out by a single blow, a 'terrific cross-counter 
on the left cheek/ in the nineteenth round. 
In this battle of thirty-eight minutes King 
had shown himself a glutton for punishment, 
of a ' bottom ' and endurance worthy of the

historian of Canada, born on 23 Dee. 1819 
in the parish of St. Lawrence Jewry, Lon-

Kingsford of Lad Lane. Educated at 
Wanostrocbt's well-known school in Cam- 
WajTOMBOOHX, Nicholas!, he 
was articled at an early age to an architect, 
but, finding the orlice uncongenial, enlisted 
in the 1st dragoon guards in his seventeenth 
year. He went with bis regiment to Canada 
in 1887, became sergeant, and in 1*40, 
through the. influence of his friends at home, 
obtained his discharge, much to tin

ford, on 9 July 1847. He graduated B.A. 
in 1851, and proceeded M.A. in 1854. His 
father died on 24 May 1849, and stated in 
his will his desire that his son should add to 
his surname the name Hugessen, after the 
testator's mother, Mary, daughter and co- 
heiress of William Western Hugessen of 
Provender, Kent. This was done hy royal 
license. 

At the general election of 1857 Knatch- 
bull-Hugessen was elected a member for 
Sandwich, in the liberal interest, having 
Lord Clarence Paget for a colleague. His 
maiden speech in the House of Commons 
was made on 21 April 1858 in support of the 
abolition of church rates. When Palmer- 
ston, on 30 June 1859, formed his second ad- 
ministration he included Knatchbull-Huges- 
sen in it as a lord of the treasury. This 
office he filled till 18(36, with the exception 
of two months in 1860, when he was under- 
secretary for the home office. In Glad- 
stone's first administration, formed on 9 Dec. 
1868, Knatchbull-Hugessen returned to the 
Under-Secretary ship for the home office. In 
1871 he became iinder-secretary for the 
colonies. On 24 March 1873 he was ap- 
pointed a privy councillor. He left office 
when Gladstone resigned on 13 Feb. 1874. 
He was not included in Gladstone's second 
administration, which was formed on 28 April 
1880, but on 24 March in that year he was 
gazetted a peer, with the title of Baron 
Brabourne of Brabourne in the county of 
Kent. After he entered the House of Lords 
his political views entirely changed, and he 
became a member of the. Carlton Club. 

He filled the offices of chairman of the 
East Kent quarter sessions and deputy- 
chairman of the South-Eastern Railway. He 
died on 6 Feb. 1893 at Smeeth Paddocks, 
and was buried at Smeeth, Kent, three days 
later. He was twice married: first, on 
19 Oct, 1852, at St. Stephen's, Hertfordshire, 
to Anna Maria Elizabeth, younger daughter 
of the Rev. Marcus Richard Southwell, 
vicar of that church, by whom he had two 
sons and two daughters ; and, secondlv, on 
3 June 1890, at Maxwelton chapel, Glen- 
cairn, to Ethel Mary, third daughter of 
Colonel Walker of Crawfordton, Dumfries- 
shire, by whom he had two daughters. 

Before and after his elevation to the 
peerage Brabourne was an industrious man 
of letters, being chiefly known as author of 
numerous stories for children, but in these 
capacities failed to distinguish himself. He 
was also a book collector. His library, 
which was sold by auction in May 1892, 
' abounded in topographical works, scarcely 
any English county being unrepresented/ 



and the sum realised was over 2,000/. 
(Athenaum, Nos. 3317 and 3353). After 
the death of his mother on 24 Dec. 1882, in 
her ninetieth year, Brabourne became pos- 
sessor of ninety-four letters written by his 
Sreat-aunt, Jane Austen, to her elder sister, 
assandra. At the close of 1884 he published 
these letters in two volumes, with introduc- 
tory and critical remarks, which were mainly 
notable for their diffuse irrelevance. 

Brabourne's story books, which pleased 
the uncritical readers for whom they were 
produced, were entitled : 1. ' Stories for my 
Children,' 1869. 2. ' Crackers for Christ- 
mas : more Stories,' 1870. 3. ' Moonshine: 
Fairy Stories/ 1871. 4. * Tales at Teatime:

Life, Times, and Character of Oliver Crom- 
well : a Lecture/ and, in 1886, ' Facts and 
Fictions in Irish History: a Reply to Mr. 
Gladstone.'

KNIBB, WILLIAM (1803-1845), mis- 
sionary and abolitionist, third son of Thomas 
and Mary (born Dexter) Knibb, was born at 
Kettering on 7 Sept. 1803, one of twins. His 
father was a tradesman, his mother a mem- 
ber of the independent chapel whose Sunday 
school he joined at seven years old. After 
three years at the grammar school he entered 
some printing works in 1814, and in 1816 
removed with his elder brother Thomas 
(b. 11 Oct. 1799) to Bristol on the transfer of 
the business. He was baptised by Dr. John 
Ryland [q. v.] and admitted member of the 
Broadmead Chapel on 7 March 1822. 

Both brothers early conceived a desire for 
missionary enterprise. William's first im- 
pulse was felt while ' composing ' missionary 
accounts and letters. Thomas was accepted 
in 1822 by the Baptist Missionnrv Society 
as master of the free school in Kingston, 
Jamaica, while William commenced preach- 
ing in a village near Bristol, and in a low 
part of the town called the ' Beggars' Opera/ 
colloquially the ' Beggars' Uproar.' The 
death of his brother after three days' illness, 
on 25 April 1823, led to William sailing on

He was just over twenty-one, and took with I

tol, to whom he waa married a month earlier. I 
After four years Knibb resigned his school i 
to undertake the small mission of Savannah 1 
la Mar, and in 1830 he settled at Falmouth, , 
near Mont ego Bay. Local feeling against 
the missionaries was strong, and their evan- 
gelical labours greatly restricted by the ! 
island laws. Knibb protested against the 
unjust action of the magistrates, and became 
the subject of much misrepresentation. The 
introduction of Fowell Buxton's motion re- 
lating to colonial slavery in April 1831 was 
the signal for violent agitation among the 
planters and excitement amomj the slaves, 
which culminated in insurrection. Knibb 
was arrested on a charge of aiding, and his 
chapel, like many others in the island, was 
destroyed. But the case against him fell 
through, and on his release he was despatched 
by the missionaries to plead their cause in 
England. 

He arrived to find the reform bill passed, 
when his first exclamation was ' Now 1*11 
have slavery down.' He threw himself ve- 
hemently into the struggle. At the Assembly 
Rooms at Bath, on 15 Dec. 1832, he defended 
the missionaries in a public discussion, and 
published with P. Borthwick a defence of 
the missionaries under the title of * Colo- 
nial Slavery' (London, i'nd edit. 183:3). 
He was examined before select committees 
of both houses of parliament, and in his 
.spare moments addressed some meetings of 
the Anti-Slavery Society. A handsome sum 
of money was raised to recoup the heavily 
taxed missionaries and rebuild their schools 
and chapels. In October 1834 Knibb re- 
turned to Jamaica, where he became the 
object of malicious attacks in the pro-slavery 
Jamaican press. These were copied by 
•John Bull/ an English paper, then edited 
bv Thomas Hood. A Bristol solicitor and 
friend of Knibb (Mr. 11. W. Hall) brought 
a libel action against the proprietor of the 
paper before Jx>rd Denman in 1839 and ob- 
tained damages, amounting to 70/., for the 
missionary. The Baptist Missionary Society 
presented him with a testimonial to mark 
the vindication of his character. 

In 1840 Knibb, with his two daughters, 
proceeded to England to exhibit in public 
addresses the results of emancipation, and 
to appeal for the enlargement of the mission. 
At the same time he pressed home the sub- 
ject of African slavery. Ho was everywhere 
received with enthusiasm, as he was subse- 
quently upon his third and fourth visits in 
1841' and 1845. 



To Knibb's efforts in England and at 
home the increase of missionary activity in 
Jamaica was largely due. Addressing a 
meeting in Norwich in June 1845 he related 
tbat thirty-five chapels, sixteen schoolrooms, 
and twenty-four mission-houses had been 
built at a cost of 157,000/. The conditions 
of life had already improved so much that, 
as he pointed out, the average limit of a 
missionary's life in the West Indies had in- 
creased from three to seven years. Knibb 
himself, a man of splendid constitution and 
immense energy, spent twenty-one years in 
Jamaica. He was stricken down with ma- 
lignant fever in the thick of his work, and 
died after four days' illness on 15 Nov. 1845 
at Kettering, one of his seven stations, where 
a house had been built and presented by his 
affectionate people to his wife and daughters. 
Mrs. Knibb survived until 1 April 1806. 
Five of their children predeceased him. Of 
the elder son, William, a remarkable boy of 
twelve, Dr. James Hoby wrote a ' Memoir/ 

Knibb founded, in September 1839, the 
1 Baptist Herald and Friend of Africa/ a 
weekly paper for the instruction of the 
emancipated population of Jamaica. Some 
of his speeches in England are printed in 
pamphlet form. His correspondence with 
Joseph Sturge [a. v.], Joseph John Gurnev 
i [q. v.], Dr. Hoby, and many other aboli- 
tionists and missionaries, is included in 
1 Hinton's ' Life/ where also is a portrait. A 
medallion was placed at the base of a figure 
of justice, erected in his chapel at Falmouth 
to commemorate the birth of freedom on 
1 Aug. 1838. Figures of Sturge, Granville 
Sharp, and Wilberforce appear in bas-relief.

land (d. 1818), on 25 Sept. 1808. Though 
baptised Robert Bent, he early dropped the 
use of his middle name. He was educated 
at Trinity College, Dublin, graduating B.A. 
in 1829, M.A. in 1834, B.D. and D.D. jn 
1858; he was also LL.D. Cambridge in 
1888. In 1832 he was ordained deacon and 

?riest by Beresford, bishop of Kilmore. On 
May 1834 he was collated chancellor of 
Ardfert,and on 16 Oct. 1841 he was collated 
to the prebend of St. Munchia, Limerick, by 
his uncle Edmund Knox (d. 7 May 1849), 
bishop of Limerick, who made him his do- 
mestic chaplain. In March 1£49 he was 
nominated by Lord Clarendon to the see of 
Down, Connor, and Dromore, vacated by the 
death (2 Nov. 1848) of Richard Mant [q. v.l 
He was consecrated on 1 May, and enthroned 
on 3 May at Lisburn, on 5 May at Dro- 
more. Samuel Wilberforce [q. v. J, who was 
in Ireland in 1861, details in his diary 
(26 Aug.) some ill-natured gossip about the 
appointment. James Henthorn Todd J\j. v.] 
described Knox as 'very foolish, without 
learning, piety, Judgment, conduct, sense, 
appointed by a job, that his uncle should 
resign Limerick.' The dean of Limerick, 
Anthony La Touche Kirwan (d. 1868), said 
of him, ' He used, when made to preach by 
his uncle, to get me to write his sermon, and 
could not deliver it. The bishop used to 
say, " "Why do you always blow your nose 
in the pathetic part ? " ' (Life of Wilberforce, 
1882, iii. 25). 

Knox, as a whig, was not at the outset 
popular in his diocese. Like his predecessor, 
ne resided at Holywood, co. Down. He 
made no secret of his opinion that, in the 
absence of extensive reforms, disestablish- 
ment was inevitable, and did his best to 
prepare for it. At an early period of his 
episcopate he had entertained the project of 
a cathedral at Belfast (in addition to the 
three existing cathedrals of the diocese) ; 
this luxury he abandoned in favour of a plan 
for multiplication of churches. The 'Bel- 
fast Church Extension Society ' was founded 
by him in 1862; as the result of his efforts, 
forty-eight new or enlarged churches were 



consecrated in his diocese. Prior to disesta- 
blishment, he organised (1862) diocesan 
conferences, and founded a diocesan board i 
of missions. In the House of Lords in 1867, 
and before the church commission in 1868, 
he proposed a reduction of the Irish hier- 
archy to one archbishop and five bishops. 
He was not a man of commanding power or 
of genial warmth, but his simplicity and 
modesty of manner, the plain good sense of 
his clear and frank utterances, his ready 
exertions in all works of charity, and his 
complete freedom from sectarian bias, won 
for him the respect and good feeling of every 
section in the community. 

On the death, 26 Dec. 1886, of Primate 
Marcus Gervais Beresford [q. v. Suppl.] he 
was chosen by the house of bishops as his 
successor, and, exchanging his diocese for 
that of Armagh, was enthroned at Armagh 
as archbishop on 1 June 1886. As president 
of the general synod of the Irish church, his 
characteristic qualities of fairness and mode- 
ration came effectively into play. He re- 
tained to the last his activity of body, 
presiding at the Armagh diocesan synod a 
fortnight before his death. He died at Ar- 
magh of heart disease on 23 Oct. 1893, and 
was buried on 27 Oct. in the old church (a 
disused ruin) at Holywood. Portraits of 
him are at Armagh Palace and at the see 
house of Down. He married, on 6 Oct. 1842, 
Catherine Delia, daughter of Thomas Gibbon 
Fitzgibbon of Ballyseeda, co. Limerick, and 
by her (who predeceased him) had three 
sons and three daughters, of whom a son, 
Lieutenant-general Charles Edmond Knox, 
and two daughters survive him. Besides a 
sermon (1847), charges (1850 and 1858), and 
a brief address, * Fruits of the Revival/ in 
Steane's ' Ulster Revival ' (1859, 8vo), he 
published ' Ecclesiastical Index (of Ireland) f 
(Dublin, 1839, 8vo), a valuable book of refe- 
rence, with appendix of forms and prece- 
dents.

He died at Posilipo, near Naples, on 
4 Jan. 1895, in his eighty-second year, 
leaving an only son, Charles Carmichael 
Lacaita (b. 1853), M.P. for Dundee, 1885-7. 

During forty-five years his life and in- 
terests were divided between this country 
and Italy ; in the one a polished English- 
man, in the other a vivacious Neapolitan 
and a conscientious landowner. He was a 
notable Dante scholar, an excellent biblio- 
grapher, a man of wide reading and intel- 
lectual sympathy, of great social tact and 
goodness of heart.

LACY, EDMUND (1370 P-1453), bishop 
of Exeter, born probably about 1370, was 
sod of Stephen Lacy and his wife Sibilla, 
who were buried in the conventual church 
of the Carmelites at Gloucester. Edmund 
was probably a native of that city, and was 
educated at Oxford, where he graduated D.D. 
In 1398 he was master of University College, 
and is said to have presided over that society 
for live years (Wood, Hist, and Ant. ii. 59). 
On 4 Jan. 1400-1 he appears as canon of 
Windsor. He was installed prebendary of 
Hereford Cathedral on 25 Sept. 1412, and in 
1414 also held the prebend of Nassington 
in Lincoln Cathedral. On 12 May 1409 he 
was sent as envoy to France, and on 22 May 
1413 he was appointed agent to the papal 
court. In Henry V's reign he was dean of 
the chapel royal, and accompanied the king 
to Agincourt in 1415 (Nicolas, Agincourt, 
p. 389). On 8 Feb. 1416-17 lie was granted 
custody of the temporalities of the bishopric 
of Hereford ; the pope assented to his election 
on 3 March, and Henry V was present at 
his consecration on 18 April. In 1420 he 
was translated to Exeter, the temporalities 
were restored on 31 Oct., and he was installed 
on 29 March 1421. In that year he preached 
before Henry V at Westminster (Walsing- 
ham, Hist. Angl. ii. 337). He was one of 
Henry V's executors, but seems to have taken 
little part in politics in the following reign, 



though he is mentioned in a political satire « 
about 1460 (Bentley, Excerpta Historica, s 
p. 162). He was bishop of Exeter for thirty- 
tive years. In 1434 he was excused attend- 
ance at parliament on account of his bodily 
infirmities, but twenty years later he was 
fined eighty marks for not being present. 
He died at Chudleigh on 18 Sept. 1455, and 
was buried on the north side of the choir in 
Exeter Cathedral. His tomb, which still 
remains, was long the resort of pilgrims. 
His will, proved on 8 Oct?. 1455, is lost, but 
his register, covering more than seventeen 
hundred pages, remains. He gave various 
books to his chapter, and made other benefac- 
tions to the diocese. His ' Liber Pontificalia ? 
was edited from an original fifteenth-century 
manuscript (the title-page savs fourteenth 
century) by Ralph Barnes ana published in 
1847 (Exeter, 8vo).

LAKE, WILLIAM CHARLES (1817- 
1897), dean of Durham, born in London on > 
9 Jan. 1817, was the eldest son of Captain 
Charles Lake of the Scots fusilier guards. 
Educated at Rugby under Dr. Arnold, he , 
became the lifelong friend of his school- I 
fellow, Arthur Penrhyn Stanley [q. v.] 
From Rugby he went to Oxford as scholar 01 
Balliol in November 1834, and was a fellow- 
pupil under Archibald Campbell (afterwards 
archbishop) Tait of Sir Benjamin Brodie, 
Edward Meyrick Goulburn, and Benjamin 
Jowett. In 1838 Lake was elected fellow of 
his college at the same time as Jowett, and 
became tutor four years later. In 1852-3 he 
was senior proctor in the university. He 
acted with the moderate party who opposed 
the action taken against William Cfeoijfe 
Ward [q. v.], and against the proposal that 
the vice-chancellor should have power to 
impose a certain form which a member of the 
university should be required to use in sub- 
scribing the articles. He became very inti- 
mate with Tait, with whom ho generally 
spent his long vacation travelling on the 
continent, and was one of the first who urged 
him to stand for the head-mastership of 
Rugby. Lake himself had been an unsuc- 
cessful candidate in 1849 when Goulburn 
was elected. He had taken orders in 1842, 
and in 1858 he left Oxford to become rector 
of Huntspill in Somerset. Two years later 
he was named prebendary of Wells. Mean- 
while Lake's linguistic abilities had led to 
his appointment by Lord Pan mure as a mem- 
ber ot the commission of 1866 to report on 
military education on the continent. He had 
won the prize at Oxford in 1840 for his Latin 
essay on the Roman army as an obstacle to 
civil liberty. He also served on the New- 
castle commission of 1858 to inquire into 
popular education, and on the royal commis- 
sion upon military education 01 1868. On 
9 Aug. 1869 Lake was nominated by Glad- 
stone for the deanery of Durham. In 1881 
he was a member of the ecclesiastical court's 
commission. His theological position was 



that of a moderate high churchman, and in 
1880 he joined Dean Church and others in 
endeavouring to induce Gladstone and 
Archbishop Tait to bring forward legislation ' 
modifying the Public Worship Regulation 
Act. 

During Lake's decanate Durham Cathedral 
was restored. He exercised an important in- 
fluence over Durham University of which he 
was warden, and education in the north of 
England generally owed much to his efforts. 
The foundation of the College of Science at 
Newcastle in 1871 was very largely his work. 
He resigned the deanery, owing to failing 
health, in 1894, and went to live at Torquay. 
There he died suddenly on 8 Dec. 1897. lie 
married, in June 1881, Miss Katherine Glad- 
stone, a niece of the premier, who survived 
him. 

Lake published nothing separately but a 
few sermons and a pamphlet, ' The Inspira- 
tion of Scripture and Eternal Punishment, 
with a preface on the Oxford Declaration and 
on F. D. Maurice's Letter to the Bishop of Lon- 
don/ 1864. But he contributed to the 'Life' 
of his friend Tait some highly interesting 
recollections, and especially a valuable pic- 
ture of the independent position he hela at 
Oxford, and an account from intimate know- 
ledge of his life as head of Rugby, bishop of 
London, and primate. Lake also supplied to 
| Mr. Wilfrid Ward's « W. G. Ward and the 
I Oxford Movement '(1889) some reminiscences 
of Ward, who was for some time his mathe- 
matical tutor at Balliol and exercised some 
influence over his tone of thought.

Lord Dacre, who farmed near him, who 
poinl.-d out that in one farm hortee m 



Lawes 

invaluable for the turnip crop, and on 
another farm they were useless, attracted 
his attention a good deal/ The investigations 
which Lawes made to discover the reason 
for this may fairly be regarded as the germ 
of the Rothamsted experiments, which sub- 
sequently became world-famous. 

Observing the beneficial results upon his 
own turnip crops at Rothamsted by dressing 
them with bones dissolved in sulphuric acid, 
Lawes took out in 1842 a patent, in which 
he showed how apatite and coprolite and 
other mineral or fossil phosphates might be 
converted into a potent manure by treatment 
with sulphuric acid. He thus laid the 
foundation for what speedily became and 
still remains a very important ind ustry , and he 
was indeed the pioneer of the now very 
large agricultural manure trade. The first 
factory for the manufacture of mineral 
superphosphate was started by Lawes at 
Deptford in 1843; he built a second and 
much larger factory at Barking Creek in 
1867 (see historical description by J. 0. 
Morton in Agric. Gazette, 2 Jan. 1888, p. 8). 
He sold the manure business to a company 
in 1872 ; but he had at that time embarked 
in other branches of chemical manufacture 
(citric and tartaric acid), and remained 
actively engaged in business in London up to 
the time of his death. 

But ' all the time he was accumulating a 
fortune by business in London, he was at 
home spending a fortune in laborious scien- 
tific agricultural investigations' (R. War- 
ington, F.R.S., in Agrk. Gazette, 17 Sept. 
1900, p. 180). In 1843 he started on a 
regular basis the Rothamsted agricultural 
experiment station; and in June of that 
year called to his aid, as coadjutor and 
technical adviser, Dr. (afterwards Sir) Joseph 
Henry Gilbert. Together Lawes and Dr. 
Gilbert instituted and carried out a vast 
number of experiments of enormous benefit 
to the agricultural community at large, 
the details of which were recorded in the 
1 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal 
Society/ the Journalsof the Chemical Society 
and of* the Royal Agricultural Society, and 
other publications. Two main lines of in- 
quiry were followed — the one relating to 
plants, the other to animals. In the former 
case the method of procedure is described in 
the official 'Memoranda* in which it was 
shown how endeavours had been made ' to 
grow some of the most important crops of 
rotation, each separately, year after year, for 
many years in succession on the same land, 
without manure, with farmyard manure, and 
with a great variety of chemical manures, 
the same description of manure being as a 



8o 



Lawes 



i 



rule applied year after year on the same 
plot. Experiments on an actual course i 
of rotation without manure and with dif- 
ferent manures were also made:' wheat, 
barley, oats, beans, clover and other legumi- 
nous plants, turnips, sugar beet, mangels, 
potatoes, and grass crops having been thus 
experimented on. The main object of the 
experiments on animals (commenced in 
1847) was to ascertain how they could be 
most economically fed for human consump- 
tion ; but incidentally information of great 
value was obtained towards the solution of 
such problems as the sources in the food 
consumed of the fat produced in the animal 
body, the characteristic demands of the 
animal body (for nitrogenous or non-nitro- 
genous constituents of food), in the exer- , 
cise of muscular power, and the comparative 
characters of animal and vegetable food in 
human dietaries. 

In all 132 separate papers or reports on 
the Rothamsted experiments were published 
during Lawes's lite, most of them in the 
joint names of himself and Dr. Gilbert. A 
full list of these is contained in the * Memo- 
randa of the Origin, Plan, and Results of 
the Field and other Experiments ... at 
Rothamsted/ now issued annually by the 
Lawes Agricultural Trust Committee. The 
' Journal of the Highland and Agricultural 
Society of Scotland' for 1895 contains a 
summary (854 nages), by Sir John Lawes 
and Sir Henry Gilbert themselves, of several 
series of the experiments, with photographic 
portraits of both authors, and a view of the 
manor house. 

This did not, however, exhaust Lawes's 
literary activity, for he was occasionally 
prevailed on to lecture in public to farmers' 
clubs, and a lengthy letter by him, estimating 
the produce of the wheat crop in the 
United Kingdom, was an annual feature of 
the 'Times newspaper in every autumn 
from 1863 to 1899. He would often more- 
over write short pithy practical papers for 
the agricultural press on various phases of 
the Rothamsted experiments, or expressing 
in terse and forcible language his own views 
on some agricultural question of the day. 

The unique feature of Rothamsted— which 
is now the oldest experiment station in the 
world — is the long unbroken continuity of 
the investigations. To provide for their 
permanent continuance, Lawes constituted 
by deed, dated 14 Feb. 1889, three trustees, 
to whom he leased the laboratory and certain 
lands at Rothamsted for ninety-nine years 
at a peppercorn rent, and conveyed to such 
trustees the sum of 100,000/. as an endow- 
ment fund. Under that deed a 'Lawes

LAYARD, Sut AUSTEN HES1SY 
( 1817-1*!'-! I. excavator of Nineveh and poli- 
tician, bora in Paris on B March 1817, of 
Huguen.it desi'eiit, was win nf Ik'iiry Peter 
John Layard, of the Ceylon Civil Service, 
and of .Marianne, daughter of Nathaniel 
Austen of liarasgatSV Daniel lVlur Layard 
[q.v.] was his great -grandfather. His youth 
was mainly spent in Italy. When sixteen 
years old he entered the office of bis uncle, 
llenry Austen, who was a solicitor in Lon- 
don, There he remained for sis years, but 
law did not attract htm, and in 1839 be de- 
cided to leave England for Cevlon, as a rela- 
tive living in the island held out to him a 
{rospect nf more congenial employment 
le bad made the acquaintance of Edward 
Mitford, a young man about ten years older 
than himself, who was setting out for the 
same destination, and, as Mitford disliked 
the sea, they hit upon the plan of making 
the journey overland through Asia. Leav- 
ing England on 8 July 1839, I^ayard joined 
Mitford at Brussels, and thev travelled to- 
gether through Itoumelia to Constantinople. 

In August 1840 they reached Hamadan, 



.n Persia. In the following year 

it becani.' necessary for him to obtain fresh 
funds from home. Having written to his 
friends in London from Ilaghdari, lie de- 
w-ended the Tigris to 1 (asm, and paid a second 
visit to Kliuaislau. His expenses were not 
heavy, as he adopted the Bakhtiyari dress 
ami travelled alone or with one servant. On 



returning to Baghdad he found letters from 
bis friends which necessitated his return to 
England, and in the summer of 1842 he set 
out for Constantinople on the return journey. 
Ou his way he spent several days at Mosul 
with Emil Botta, who bad recently been ap- 
pointed French consul there, ana who had 
already begun his excavations in the great 
mounds opposite the city which mark the 
site of the ruins of Nineveh. Botta had 
opened trenches in the largest of the mounds, 
known as Kuyuniik, and Layard visited and 
examined with him the spot where he him- 
self was subsequently to undertake excava- 
tions for the trustees of the British Museum. 

On his arrival at Constantinople, Layard 
called at the British embassy to deliver a 
letter entrusted to him by Colonel Taylor, 
the British resident at Baghdad. At this 
time the relations between Turkey and Persia 
were strained owing to disputes concerning 
the frontier, and Layard hoped thathisrecent 
travels in Khuzistan and his knowledge of 
the region in dispute would procure him 
employment in some form or other at the 
embassy. His first reception there was not 
encouraging; but when his funds were ex- 
hausted, and be was about to leave, for Eng- 
land, he received an offer from Stratford 
Canning (afterwards Viscount Stratford de 
liedelilt'el [q.v.], the British ambassador to 
Turkey, that he should travel unofficially 
through Western Turkey and report to him 
on the state of affairs. This offer, which he 
readily accepted, was the turning-point in 
I.ayard's fortunes. His financial difficulties 
j ceased, and in Canning he obtained an influ- 
ential patron who put him in the way of 
] his future discoveries. Continuing to em- 
ploy Layard privately, Canning, in the 
spring of 1844, sent him on a mission to 
Northern Albania. Meanwhile he had re- 
commended him for an appointment at tbe 
embassy, but. as the suggestion met with 
opposition at the foreign office, he found 
other employment for his prottyf. Canning 
look a keen interest inarclueology. He hod 
read the memoir of Claudius James Rich.

ay aril described to him the mounds which 
he had examined with Botta he decided to 
undertake tho exploration of that site, lie 
used his influence with the Porte to obtain 
the necessary rirman: he paid Layard a 
salary of '2001. a year ; and he placed* at his 
disposal an additional sum for defraying the 
cost of excavation (see Lajte-Poole, The 
IJfe of Stratford Canning, ii. 137 f.) In 
the early part of October 1845 Layard re- 
ceived Lis final instructions, and left Con- 
stantinople for Mosul.

the precincts of Nineveh. The book made 
a great sensation, ami in recognition of his 
discoveries Layard received the honorary 
degree of D.C.L. from the university of 
Oxford on 6 July 1848. It is a curious fact, 
however, that, like IWt.a's ' MoKiiuii'tils do 
Ninive,' the book (tad in reality little to do 
with Nin.'vuh or its remains. 

On 5 April 1849 Layard was appointed 
an attach* to the embassy at Constanti- 
nople, wbitber he returned; and in October 
of that year he again superintended excava- 
tions for the trustees of the Mrit isfa Museum. 
a grant of 3,0001 having been placed at. 
tiii'ir disposal by the treasury for this pur- 
pose. For more than s year work was 
carried on, and palaces of Sennacherib and 
Asbur-bntii-pul at Kumnjil; mid u palace of 
Sennacherib and Esnrhaddon at Nebi- 
Yunus were partly uncovered. In the 
spring of 1851 Layard returned to Eng- 
land, and the excavations were continued 
hy Kawlinson, then consul ge.ui.Tal, mid 
I la' political agent of the East India Com- 
pany at Baghdad. Layard published an 
looonal of mi second aeries of excavations 
in his work ' Nineveh and Babylon,' which 
appeared in 1868. Layard 's discoveries

for Aylesbury, and from 12 Feb. I

ing year on the outbreak of the Crimean 
war, witnessed the battle of the Alma from 
the maintop of H.M.S. Agamemnon. On his 
return to England he gave evidence before 
the committee of inquiry with regard to the 
condition of the British army at Sebasto- 
pol. After losing his seat for Aylesbury at 
the general election in March 1857, he made 
a tour in India during the latter part of 
that year and 1858, in order to study the 
causes and effects of the Indian mutiny. 
In April 1859 he unsuccessfully contested 
York, but in December 1860 was returned 
as one of the members for Southwark. In 
July 1861 he again became under-secretary 
for foreign affairs in Lord Palmerston's ad- 
ministration, in which Lord John (first 
earl) Russell was foreign secretary. On 
Palmerston's death in October 1865, Layard 
continued to hold the same office in Lord 
Russell's administration, in which Lord 
Clarendon was foreign secretary, and he re- 
signed with the ministry in July next year. 
In December 1868, when Gladstone had 
become prime minister for the first time, 
Layard was appointed to the post of chief 
commissioner of works, and was admitted to 
the privy council. In November of the fol- 
lowing year he resigned that office, and his 
career as a politician was brought to an end 
by his acceptance of the post of British mini- 
ster at Madrid. 

Layard was in agreement with Lord Bea- 
consneld's political opinions in regard to 
Eastern Europe. On 31 March 1877 he was 
accordingly transferred by Lord Beacons- 
field from "Madrid to Constantinople, in suc- 
cession to Sir Henry George Elliot. Within 
a month of his arrival the Russo-Turkish 
war broke out, and his action soon became 
the theme of excited controversy among poli- 
ticians at home. His sympathies were un- 
doubtedly with Turkey, but in a despatch to 
the foreign minister, Lord Derby, of February 
1878, he solemnly denied reports that he had 
encouraged Turkey to commence or continue 
the war, or had led her to believe that Eng- 
land would give her material support. He 
declared he had always ' striven ibr peace,' 
and for ' the cause of religious and political | 
liberty.' In June 1878 he negotiated the j 
Anglo-Turkish convention for the British J 
occupation of Cyprus. In June 1878 he re- j 
ceived the order of the grand cross of the 
Bath as a mark of recognition of his advo- 
cacy of Lord Beaconsfield's imperial views. , 
In April 1880 a general election took place ' 
in England, and it resulted in the resigna- 
tion or ljord Beaconsfield and his ministry, 
and in the formation of Gladstone's se- 
cond administration. Thereupon Layard 



received leave of absence from his post at 
Constantinople, and his official career came 
to an end. In May Mr. G. J. (now Viscount) 
Goschen was sent to Constantinople in his 
place as special ambassador and minister- 
plenipotentiary of Great Britain. In his 
later years Layard lived much in Italy, 
chiefly at Venice, where he was well known 
as a social figure and an authority on art, 
which had always been a subject of his close 
study. His interest in Italian art was very 
deep. In February 1866 he was appointed 
a trustee of the National Gallery, and he 
became honorary foreign secretary of the 
Royal Academy of Arts. He died in Lon- 
don on 5 July 1894. His remains were cre- 
mated and buried at Woking on 9 July. 
In 1869 he married Mary Evelyn, daughter 
of Sir John Guest ; she survived him. 

Two portraits of Layard in crayon were 
made by Mr. G. F. Watts, R.A., tne one for 
Mr. John Murray in 1848, the other a few 
years later for Layard's own collection of 
pictures; the former portrait is reproduced 
in ' Early Adventures ' ( 2nd edit.) A coloured 
picture of Layard, taken in 1843, forms the 
frontispiece to ' Early Adventures ' ( 1st edit.) 

Layard made a greater reputation as an ex- 
cavator than as a politician or a diplomatist, 
but he was without the true archaeologist's 
feeling — a fact which is sufficiently proved 
by ' his presenting to his friends neatly cut 
tablets containing fragments of cuneiform 
inscriptions, which, of course, left serious 
lacunas in priceless historical documents ' 
(Athenaum, 14 July 1894). His best- 
known works are those that deal with his 
excavations. The excavations at Nimrild 
were described in ' Nineveh and its Remains ' 
(1849, 2 vols.) ; and ' Discoveries in the Ruins 
of Nineveh and Babylon ' (1858) recounts 
his second series of excavations ; these were 
his principal works. Drawings of the exca* 
vated bas-reliefs were published in two series 
of plates entitled * The Monuments of Nine- 
veh ' (1849) and 'A Second Series of Monu- 
ments of Nineveh ' (1863). In ' Inscriptions 
in the Cuneiform Character from Assyrian 
Monuments' (1861) he printed, with* Sir 
II. C. Rawlinson's assistance, copies of a few 
of the monumental texts from his diggings, 
but he took no part in the decipherment of 
the inscriptions — a work which was carried 
out by Rawlinson, Dr. Hinckes, M. Jules 
Oppert, and others. In 1861 an abridg- 
ment of 'Nineveh and its Remains' was 
published for the railway bookstalls, under 
the title 'A Popular Account of Dis- 
coveries at Nineveh,' a second edition of 
which was produced in 1867 under the old 
title, ' Nineveh and its Remains,' together 




with a companion volume, ' Nineveh anil

184-5, and was on 28 Sept. 1861 at the Prin-

ginal Mary Vance in Mr. Burnand's ' Deal

(10 Oct. 1863). At the Princess's (August 
1868) she was Eliza in ( After Dark/ and at

She was Desdemona to the Othello of Phelps,

LEGGE, JAMES (1815-1897), professor 
of Chinese at the university of Oxford, son 
of Ebenezer Legge, was born at Huntlv in 
Aberdeenshire in 1815. He was educated 
at the Aberdeen grammar school, and gra- 
duated M. A. at King's College, Aberdeen, in 
1835. From his earliest years he had de- 
sired to enter the missionary field, and for 
the furtherance of this object he, at the com- 
pletion of his course at Aberdeen, came to 
London and studied at the theological col- 



lege at Highbury. In 1839 he was appointed 
by the London Missionary Society to the 
Chinese mission at Malacca, where he re- 
mained until the treaty of 1842 enabled him 
and others to begin missionary work in China. 
In 1840 he was appointed principal of the 
Anglo-Chinese College at Malacca, which 
Robert Morrison [q.v.] had founded in 1825, 
and in the following year the council of the 
university of New lork conferred on him 
the degree of D.D. In 1843 he landed in 
the newly established colony of Hongkong, 
and took part in the negotiations which 
ended in the conversion of the Anglo-Chinese 
college into a theological seminary and its 
removal to Hongkong. There he resumed 
his position as principal. His health having 
broken down, ne paid a visit to England in 
1845, and three years later returned to Hong- 
kong, where, in addition to his missionary 
work, he undertook the pastoral charge of 
an English congregation. In 1858 he paid 
another visit to England, and in 1873 he re- 
turned permanently to this country, resign- 
ing the principalship and other posts. In 
18/0 the degree of LL.D. was conferred on 
him by the university of Aberdeen, and in 
1884 the same honour was granted him by 
the university of Edinburgh. In 1875 a 
number of merchants interested in China, 
and others, collected a fund for the endow- 
ment of a Chinese professorship at Oxford, 
on the understanding that Legge should be 
the first occupant of the chair. The uni- 
versity accepted the arrangement, appointed 
him professor, and the authorities of Corpus 
Christi College elected him a fellow of their 
college. His inaugural lecture was published 
in 1870. At Oxford he remained until his 
death. He died at his residence in Keble 
Road on 29 Nov. 1897. Legge was twice 
married : first, on 30 April 1839, to Mary 
Isabella, daughter of the Rev. John Morison ; 
and secondly, in 1859, to Hannah Mary, 
daughter of John Johnstone, esq., of Hull, 
and widow of the Rev. G. Willetts of 
Salisbury. By both wives lie left children. 

Legge was a voluminous writer both in 
Chinese and English, and did much to in- 
struct his fellow-countrymen and continental 
scholars in the literature and religious beliefs 
of China. He bore a leading part in the 
controversy* as to the best translation into 
Chinese of the term -God,* and published a 
volume called 'The Notions of the Chinese 
concerning God and Spirits' (Hongkong and 
London, 1852, 8vo). hut the great work of 
his life was the edition of the Chinese classics 
— the Chinese text, with translation, notes, 
and preface. This task he began in 1841, 
and finished shortly before his death.

of Legge's edition of the Chinese classics 
appeared in the series called ' The Sacred

R. K. D. 
LEIGHTON,FREDERIC, Babox Leigh- 
ton of Strbtton (1830-1896), president of 
the Royal Academy of Arts, was born at 
Scarborough on 3 Dec. 1830. His family 
came originally from Shropshire. His 
grandfather and father were both physicians. 
His jjrandfat her James (afterwards Sir James) 
Boniface Leighton was invited to the Russian 
court, and was court physician under both 
Alexander I and Nicholas I. His son Fre- 
deric Septimus (1800-1892) was educated 
for the medical profession at Edinburgh, and 
practised successfully until about 1843, when 
increasing deafness compelled him to retire. 
He settled for a time at Bath, but afterwards 
returned to Scarborough, and finally to 
London, where he died on 24 Jan. 18921 In 
spite of t he physical disability just mentioned, 
he was a man of great social talent and of 
most agreeable manners. His wife, Lord 



Leighton'8 mother, was Augusta Susan, 
daughter of George Augustus Nash of Ed- 
monton. 

The young Frederic Leighton showed an 
early love for drawing and filled many 
books with his sketches, but these do not 
seem to have been of a kind to impress his 
family very profoundly, and his lather, it 
must be said, disliked the idea of art as a 
profession. While the boy was still very 
voung, his mother's delicate health gave him 
his first chance of seeing foreign countries. 
The family travelled abroad, and in the year 
1839, before Frederic was ten years old, he 
found himself one day in the studio of George 
Lance in Paris. From this visit his father's 
acceptance of the idea that possibly nature 
had made the boy an artist appears to date. 
Dr. Leighton determined, however, that his 
choice should not be limited by any one- 
sided education. In London, Rome, Dres- 
den, Berlin, Frankfort, and Florence, his 
education was pursued, with the result that, 
in one particular at least, it was vastly more 
thorough than usual with an English boy of 
his condition. He became an accomplished 
linguist, speaking the four chief modern lan- 
guages with almost equal facility. It was 
in Florence in 1844 that his profession was 
finally settled. Dr. Leighton consulted 
Hiram Power, the sculptor of 'The Greek 
Slave,' as to whether he should make his 
son an artist. ' Sir,' said Power, ' Nature 
has done it for you/ adding that the boy 
could become ' as eminent as he pleased.' 

Work was begun in earnest in the Acca- 
demia delle Belle Arti, under Bezzuoli and 
Servolini, whose influence did little but harm. 
Leighton soon left Florence for Frankfort, 
where he resumed his general education. 
At the age of seventeen he finally left school, 
and worked at art for a year in the Staedel 
Institute. In 1848 he moved with hisfamily 
to Brussels, where he painted one or two pic- 
tures, including a ' Cimabue finding Giotto/ 
In 1849 he was in Paris, copying pictures in 
the Louvre, and attending a so-called school 
of art in the Rue Richer. Leighton's indi- 
viduality was not robust enough for such 
constant change, and it is probable that he 
would have been a greater artist than he 
was, had his early training been more favour- 
able to concentration. His real and serious 
studentship began only after he left Paris, 
when he was already in his twentieth year. 
He returned to Frankfort, and there worked 
strenuously for three years under Johann 
Eduard Steinle (1810-1886), of whom he 
ever afterwards spoke as his only real master. 
While under Steinle he painted several pic- 
tures, the most notable perhaps * The Plague

which was a series of oriental pictures, 'The

LENNOX, Sib WILBRAHAM OATES 
(1830-1897), general royal engineers, fourth 
son of Lord John George Lennox (1793- 
1873), second son of the fourth Duke of 
Richmond, was born on 4 May 1830 at 
Molecomb House, Goodwood, Sussex. His 
mother was Louisa Frederica (d. 12 Jan. 
1863), daughter of Captain the Hon. John 
Rodney, M.P., third son of Admiral Lord 
Rodney. He was privately educated and, 
after passing through the Royal Military 
Academy at Woolwich, received a commis- 
sion as second lieutenant in the royal engi- 
neers on 27 June 1848. His further com- 
missions were dated: lieutenant 7 Feb. 1854, 
second captain 25 Nov. 1857, brevet major 
24 March 1858, brevet lieutenant-colonel 
26 April 1859, first captain 1 April 1863, 
brevet colonel 26 Aprd 1867, regimental 
major 5 July 1872, lieutenant-colonel 10 Dec. 
1873, major-general 13 Aug. 1881, lieute- 
nant-general 12 Feb. 1888, general 28 June 
1893. 

Lennox went through the usual course of 
professional instruction at Chatham, served 
for a few months at Portsmouth, and em- 
barked for Ceylon on 20 Nov. 1850. In 
August 1854 ne went direct from Ceylon 
to tne Crimea, where he arrived on 30 Sept., 
and was employed under Major (afterwards 
General Sir) Frederick Chapman [a. v. 
Suppl.] in the trenches of the left attack on 
Sevastopol, and had also charge of the engi- 
neer park of the left attack. He was pre- 
sent at the battle of Inkerman on 5 Nov., 
having come off the sick list for the purpose. 
On 20 Nov. he won the Victoria Cross * for 
cool and gallant conduct in establishing a 
lodgment in Tryon's rifle pits, and assisting 
to repel the assaults of the enemy. This 
brilliant operation drew forth a special order 
from General Canrobert.' On 9 Dec. he was 
appointed adjutant to the royal engineers of 
the left attack. He acted as aide-de-camp 
to Chapman with Eyre's brigade at the 
attack of the Redan on 18 June, and was 
present in September at the fall of Sebastopol, 
after which he was adjutant of all the royal 
engineer force in the Crimea until the army 
was broken up. He arrived home on 5 Aug. 
1 856. For his services he was mentioned in 
despatches (Lo?idon Gazette, 21 Dec. 1855), 
received the war medal with two clasps, the 
Sardinian and Turkish medals, the 5th class 
of the Turkish order of the Medjidie, and on 
24 Feb. 1857 the Victoria Cross. 

Lennox was adjutant of the royal en- 



gineers at Aldershot until he again left Eng- 
land on 25 April 1857 as senior subaltern of 
the 23rd company of royal engineers to take 
part in the China war. On arrival at Singa- 
pore the force for China was diverted to 
India for the suppression of the mutiny, and 
Lennox reached Calcutta on 10 Aug. On 
the march to Cawnpore he took part on 
2 Nov. in the action at Khajwa under 
Colonel Powell. The captain of his com- 
pany was severely wounded on this occasion, 
and, Colonel Goodwyn of the Bengal en- 
gineers having fallen sick on 14 Nov., 
Lennox became temporarily chief engineer 
on the staff of Sir Colin Campbell. In this 

Coition he served at the second relief of 
ucknow. He submitted a plan of attack 
which was adopted by Sir Colin. He took 
a conspicuous part in the operations, and 
the relief was accomplished on 17 Nov. He 
continued to act as chief engineer in the 
operations against the Gwalior contingent, 
and in the battle of Cawnpore on 6 Dec. 
He commanded a detachment of engineers 
at the action of Kali Naddi under Sir Colin 
Campbell on 2 Jan. 1858, and at the occu- 
pation of Fathghar. He was assistant to 
the commanding royal engineer, Colonel 
(afterwards Sir) Henry Drurv Harness [q. v.], 
in the final siege of Luckuow from 2 to 
21 March. 

After the fall of Lucknow Lennox com- 
manded the engineers of the column under 
Brigadier-general (afterwards Sir) Robert 
Walpole [q. v.] for the subjugation of RohU- 
khatid, was present at the unsuccessful attack 
on Fort Ruiya on 15 April, its occupation on 
the following day, and the action 01 Alaganj 
on 22 April. Having rejoined Lord Clyde 
he commanded the engineers at the battle of 
Bareli on 5 May and the occupation of the 
town. In June Lennox took nis company 
to Rurki, and in September to Allahabad, 
where he was appointed commanding en- 
gineer to the column under Lord Clyde for 
the subjugation of Oude. He was present 
at the capture of Amethi on 10 Nov., and of 
Shankarpur on the 16th, and at the action 
of Dundia Khera or Buxar on 24 Nov. On 
30 Nov. he left Lucknow as commanding 
royal engineer of the column under Briga- 
dier-general Eveleigh to settle the country 
to the north-east, and was present at the 
capture of Umria on 2 Dec. He com- 
manded the 23rd company royal engineers 
at the action on 20 Dec. under Lord Clyde 
at Barjadua or Chandu in the Trans-Gopra 
campaign, at the capture of Fort Majaaua 
on tne 27th, and at the action at Banki on 
the Rapti on 31 Dec. Lennox was included

lie held the deanery from the summer of 
IH.jG till his retirement in December 1891 — 
a period of more than thirty-six years, a 
Longer tenure of the office than any former 
dean had enjoyed. It oonrad alaa u want- 
f id epoch in the history of Christ Church. 
The recommendations of tho commission of 
which ha had been an influential mnnU'r 
were embodied in an ordinance which In - 
came law in I83S, under which tivn of the 
eight canonries were suppressed, mid the 
powers of the dean and chapi..-;- were largely 
ciir(aili j d, their ancient right of nominating 
tn studentships being taken away, nnd a 
board of electors established, consisting of 
the dean, six canons, and the six senior 
members of tbe educational stuff, who were 
to examine nnd select, after open competi- 
tion, all students except those who were 
drawn from Westminster School. Instead 
of the old number of 101 students, there 
were fin the future to he twenty-eight senior 
students (answering In some n 

! fellows of other colleges) and fifty-two 
junior et.udcnldiips, twenty-one annexed tn 
Westminster School, and the MB) open to 

I competition. 

' This ordinance remained in force till 1867. 

' But it satisfied nobody ; the senior students 
especially demanding u place in the admini- 
stration of the properly of their house, of 
which the dean and chapter had always en- 
joyed the sole management. Alter much 
controversy a private commission of five dis- 
tinguished men ra appointed, who drew 
up n new scheme of government,, which all 
parties agreed to abide by, and which via-

body — were at the same time carefully 
guarded. Liddell had taken a prominent 
part in both these reforms, and lived to see 
and to guide a third change, which came 
after the parliamentary commission of 1877, 
by which the studentships were divided into 
two classes, with different conditions of 
tenure and emoluments. 

Dean LiddeU's time will alwavs be asso- 
ciated with great alterations and additions 
to the buildings of Christ Church. The new 
block of buildings fronting the meadow was

There are two portraits in oil of Dean 
Liddell ; one, by Mr. G. F. Watts, R.A., is in 
the hall of Christ Church. This was pre- 
sented to the dean, at the gaudy of 1876, 
in commemoration of the completion of his 
twentieth year of office. The other, by Mr. 
Hubert Herkomer,R. A., was painted in 1891, 
and presented by the painter to the university 
galleries. There is also an exquisite crayon 
drawing by George Richmond, R.A. (1868), 
which has been engraved. These, together 



with a portrait of Liddell at the age of 
erected in 1862-6, the great quadrangle was twenty-eight by George Cruikshank, are re- 
brought to its present state, and the cathe- j produced in the present writer's * Memoir ' 



dral, chapter-house, and cloisters were care- 
fully restored. 

In all matters relating to the university 
Dean Liddell exercised considerable autho- 
rity during many years. The Clarendon 
Press owes very much to his enlightened 
and prudent guidance ; his refined artistic 
tastes, and lifelong friendship with Rusk in, 
led him to take a deep interest in the uni- 
versity galleries. He was vice-chancellor 
1870-4, and discharged with singular dignity 
and efficiency the duties of that important 
office, which had not been held by a dean 
of Christ Church since the days of Dean 



(1899).

her vocation during her hitter years. She 
became connected with the 'Saturday lie- 
view' in lrtili, Mini for many years was a 
[iiiifh-vultn-il contributor of essays to the 
middle part of the paper. One of these, 
' The Girl of the Period '(14 March 1868), an 
onslaught on some modern developments of 
feminine manners and character, created a 
great sensation, and the number in which it 
had appeared continued to be inquired for for 
many years. It was certainly incisive, and 
was probably though! opportune ; but, like 
her kindred disquisition* unfriendlv to I be 
cause of ' women's rights,' it estranged and 
offended man v other own sex. These papers 
were reprinted as ' The Girl of the Period, 
and other Essays' (1883,2 vols.) A similar 
aeries of essays was entitled 'Ourselves' 
(1870; new edit. 1884). She contributed to 
many other journals and reviews, and always 
with effect. In 1801 site published ' An

volume on George Eliot for a series entitled

R. G. 

LINTON, WILLIAM JAMES (1812- 
1898), engraver, poet, and political reformer, 
was born in Ireland's Row, Mile End 
Road, on 7 Dec. 1812. His father, whose 
calling is not recorded, was of Scottish ex- 
traction, the son of ' an Aberdeen ship 
carpenter with some pretensions to be 
called an architect/ His younger brother, 
Ilenry Duff Linton (1812-1899), who was 
also a wood-engraver, and was associated 
with W. J. Linton in many of his earlier 
productions, died at Norbiton, Surrev, in 
June 1899 (Times, 23 June 1899). 

Linton received his education at a school 
in Stratford, and in 1828 was apprenticed 
to the wood-engraver George Wilmot Bonner, 
with whom he continued for six years. He 
subsequently worked with Powis and with 
Thompson, and in 1836 became associated 
with John Orrin Smith [q. v.], then intro- 
ducing great improvements into English 
wood-engraving. About the same time he 
married the sister of Thomas Wade [q. v.] the 
poet, after whose death he wedded another 
sister. He now began to mingle in literary 
circles, and to make himself conspicuous as 
a political agitator. Under the influence of 
his enthusiasm for Shelley and Lamennais, 
whose ' Words of a Believer ' were among 
the gospels of the time, he had adopted 
advanced views in religion and extreme 
views in politics, and, while throwing him- 
self with ardour into the chartist move- 
ment, went beyond it in professing himself 
a republican, lie was especially connected 
with Ilenry Hetherington [q. v.] and James 
Watson (1799-1874) [q. v. J, the publishers 
of unstamped newspapers, and in 1839 
himself established ' The National/ designed 
as a vehicle for the reprint of extracts from 
political and philosophical publications in- 
accessible to working men. It had no long 
existence. 

In 1842 Linton became partner with his 



employer, Orrin Smith, but the partnership 
was dissolved by the latter's death in the fol- 
lowing year. During their connection Linton 
had done much important work, especially on 
< The Illustrated News/ established in 1842. 
He was also active in literature. Through 
his brother-in-law Wade he had become in- 
timate with the circle that gathered around 
W. J. Fox and R. H. Home in the latter 
days of ' The Monthly Repository,' and with 
their aid, after an unsuccessful experiment 
in ' The Illustrated Family Journal, he suc- 
ceeded (1845) Douglas Jerrold as editor of 
' The Illuminated Magazine/ where he pub- 
lished many interesting contributions from 
writers of more merit than popularity. 
Among these were 'A Royal Progress/ a 
poem of considerable length by Sarah Flower 
Adams [q. v.], not hitherto printed else- 
where, and specimens of the ' Stories after 
Nature ' of Charles Jeremiah Wells [<j. v.], 
almost the only known copy of which Linton 
himself had picked off a bookstall. Their 
publication elicited a new story from Wells, 
which Linton subsequently dramatised 
under its own title of * Claribel.' 

As a politician Linton was at this time 
chiefly interested in the patriotic designs 
of Mazzini, with whom he formed an in- 
timate friendship, and the violation of whose 
correspondence at the post office in 1844 he 
was instrumental in exposing. The chartist 
movement had passed under the direction 
of Feargus O'Connor [q. v.], whom Linton 
distrusted and despised, and he had little 
connection with it ; of the free-trade leaders, 
W. J. Fox excepted, he had a still worse 
opinion, and continued to denounce them 
with virulence throughout his life. An 
acquaintance with Charles (now Sir Charles) 
Gavan Duffy led him to contribute political 
verse to the Dublin 'Nation' under the 
signature of * Spartacus.' In 1847 he took a 
prominent part in founding the 'International 
League ' ot patriots of all nations, for which 
the events of the following year seemed to 
provide Ample scope, but which came to 
nothing. The more limited and practical 
movement of ' The Friends of Italy ' was 
supported by him. In 1850 he was con- 
cerned with Thornton Hunt and G. H. 
Lewes in the establishment of 'The 
Leader/ which he expected to make the 
organ of republicanism, but he soon dis- 
covered his associates' lukewarmness in 
political matters, and quitted 'The Leader' 
to found ' The English Republic/ a monthly 
journal published and originally printed 
at Leeds. After a while Linton carried 
on the printing under his own superinten- 
dence at Brantwood, a house which he had

himself at Applednre, n farmhouse i 
New Haven in Connecticut, gathered dis- 
ciples around him, and by precept, and 
example waa accomplishing great things, 
when his career was checked by the intro- 
duction nf cheap 'process' methods, inevi- 
table when the art has become so largely 
popularised, but always regarded hy him 
with the strongest objection. At first 
he sent his blocks to New York, Inn ulti- 
mately-bought a press, and conducted both 
printing and engraving under his own roof. 
For the literary furtherance i.f his views on 
art he produced 'Practical [lints on Wood 
Engraving,' 1*79; 'A History of Wood En- 
graving in America,' 188J, and ' Wood En- 
graving, a Manual of Instruction,' 1884. 
During n visit to England En 1 8*3 and 1*84 
he begun his great work Called 'The Musters 
of Wood Engraving.' This book was based 
upon two hundred photographs from the 
works of the great masters, which he began 
in 1884 in the print-room of the British 
Mnseum. Returning to New Haven he 
wrote his boob, printed it in three copies, 
and mounted the photographs himself, and 
in 188" returned to England, bringing one 
of the copies to be reproduced under his 
superintendence in London. The work ap- 
peared in folio in 1890. 

Meanwhile his private press at Appledore 
had been active in another department, pro- 
ducing charming little volumes of original 
verse, much prized hy collectors, such as 
' Windfalls,' • Love Lore/ and • The Golden 
Apples of Hesperus,' the latter an anthology 
of little-known pieces, partly reproduced in 
another collection edited by him, ' Hare 
Poems of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth 
Centuries '(Xew Haven, \"f>, «vo). In 1883 
he published an r-s tensive anthology of Eng- 
lish poetry in conjunction with R. 11. -Stod- 
dard. In 1879 he wrote the life of his old 
friend, James Watson, the intrepid pub- 
lisher, and contributed his recollections to 
the republished poems of another old friend, 

' In 1889 'Love Lore,' 
Claribel' and other 
pieces, was published in London under the 
title of ' Poems and Translations.' A collec- 
tion of pamphlets and contributions by 
himself to periodical literature, comprising 
twenty volumes (183(1-80), and entitled 
' Prose and Verse,' is in the British Museum 
Library, After hit final return to America 
in 18*2, though upwards of eighty, he 
produced a life of Whittier in the ' Great 
Writers ' series (1893), and his own 'Me- 
mori.r-,' an autobiography full of spirit and 
huovancv, which might with advantage 
have been mow full, in 1895. He died at

through the Sutlej campaign of 1845. In 
1850 he was appointed adjutant of the 
famous irregular corps, Skinner's Horse. On 
the outbreak of the Crimean war his gift of 
managing Asiatic soldiery led to his being 
selected in 1854 to proceed to Bulgaria and 
assist in organising the Turkish horse. He 
served throughout the war, and at its close he 
was signalled out for the employment which 
was destined to close his military career. In 

1857 James Bruce, eighth earl of ElginTq.v.] 
was despatched on a special embassy to China 
to arrange, as was supposed, the final terms 
of settlement of the war that was then raging, 
and Captain Loch was attached to his stuff. 
He was present at the taking of Canton on 
28 Dec. and the seizure of Commissioner 
Yeh, and he subsequently proceeded with 
Lord Elgin on his mission to Japan, and in 

1858 he was sent back to England with the 
treaty of Yeddo, concluded by Great Britain 
with that country. In 1860 the failure to 
obtain the ratification of the treaty of Tien- 
tsin and the repulse of the English gunboats 
before the Taku forts had involved the Anglo- 
French expedition under Sir James Hope 
Grant [q. v.] and General Montauban, after- 
wards Count Palikao. Lord Elgin was 
again sent out as minister plenipotentiary, 
and mindful of Captain Lochs services he 
took him with him as private secretary. In 
conjunction with Mr. (afterwards Sir) Ilarry 
Smith Parkes |<j. v.], Loch conducted the 
negotiations which led to the surrender of 
the Taku forts, and he shared in the advance 
on Pekin. 

On IK Sept. lie formed one of the small 
party which was treacherously seized by the 
Chinese officials on returning from l*ung- 
chau, whither they had been to arrange the 
preliminaries of peace. Loch hod actually 
made his way through the enemy's lines to 
the English camp and had given warning of 
the intended treachery, but he chivalrously 
returned in order to try and save his com- 
rades. For three weeks he endured the 
most terrible imprisonment, loaded with 
chains, tortured by the gaolers, and herded 
with the worst felons in the common prison. 
So frightful was the state of his surround- 
ings tunt a single abrasion of the skin must 
have led to a terrible death from the poisonous 
insects that swarmed in his cell. Ilia situa- 
tion was rendered more deplorable by his 
inability to speak the Chinese language with 
any fluency. Fortunately the loyalty and 
determination of his fellow-prisoner, Parkes, 
led first to the amelioration of his condition, 
and eventually to their joint release. They 
anticipated by only ten minutes the arrival 
of an order from the emperor imperatively 



commanding their execution. On 8 Oct, 
they rejoined the British camp, but, with 
the exception of a few Indian troopers, the 
rest of the party — French, English, and 
native — died in prison from horrible mal- 
treatment, and Loch himself never fully 
recovered his health. 

In 1860 he was sent home in charge of 
the treaty of Tientsin, and in the following 
year he finally quitted the army, and was 
appointed private secretary to Sir George 
Grey [q. v.j, who was then secretary of state 
at the home office. In 1863 he was made 
governor of the Isle of Man, a post which he 
occupied to the great satisfaction of the 
islanders until 1 SS'2. In 1880 he had received 
the distinction of a K.C.B. In 1882 he was 
transferred to a commissionership of woods 
and forests and land revenue, and his career 
outside the somewhat narrow bounds of the 
English civil service seemed at an end. In 
1884, however, he was sent to Australia by 
Gladstone as governor of Victoria. During 
his five years' tenure of that office his kind- 
ness and tact endeared him to all classes of 
the population, and he left the most affec- 
tionate remembrance behind him when in 
1889 the Marquis of Salisbury, the conser- 
vative prime minister, chose him to succeed 
Sir Hercules Robinson (afterwards Lord 
liosmead) [q. v. Suppl.], who had just com- 
pleted his first term of office as governor of 
the Cape and high commissioner in South 
Africa. 

It was during Loch's residence at the 
Cape that the South African question first 
began to assume the threatening proportions 
which led to the war of 1899. In the Cape 
Colony itself matters were peaceful enough, 
owing to the temporary combination of Mr. 
Cecil Uhodes with the Afrikander party. 
There were few constitutional difficulties, 
and Sir Henry found himself generally in 
accord with his constitutional advisers, and 
able to work with them with but little fric- 
tion. Outside the borders, however, the 
elements of unrest were beginning to fer- 
ment, and Loch had scarcely the requisite 
knowledge of South African problems to 
enable him to adequately master the situa- 
tion. He was alive, however, to the great- 
ness of Mr. lihodes's conceptions, and to the 
danger that would inevitably attend any 
expansion of the Transvaal Republic. He 
assisted the expeditions which led to the 
annexation of Mashonaland and Matabele- 
land, and he allowed the Bechuanaland 
police force to be sent up to threaten the 
Matabele from the west on the outbreak of 
the war of 1893.

I SSI7 1. solicitor- gene nil. second son of Charles 
Day Lockwood, stoue-quarrier at Levitt 
Hagg, near Doncoster, was born ut Don- 
caster in July 1846. In 1860 the family 
moved lo Manchester, and in 1863 he en- 
tered the grammar school (having been 
previously at a private school at Ei leu bridge ) 
under Mr. Walker, afterwards bead-master 
of St. Paul's School, In October 1805 he 
proceeded to Cains College, Cambridge, 
where he took a ' pas?' degree in 18(i9,'going 
out' in political economy. In 1869, having 
abandoned the idea of holy orders, he entered 
Lincoln's Inn and was called to the bar in 
January 187L 1 . He at once juim;d the old 
midland circuit, and attended sessions at 
Bradford, Leeds, and other places. A fair 
measure of success was speedily awarded him, 
and in 1875 he held fifteen briefs in one 
assize at Leeds. During his early days at 
the bar the habit of drawing he had learnt, 
from his father grew upon him, and his rapid 
sketching in court of judges, witnesses, and 
litigants gave him occupation and secured 
him nut ice. For some of these early sketches 
he appears to have found a market ; but in 
later I if", though In- si ill con' iiiued to sketch, 
he tosaed them from him with careless in- 
difference. In September 1874 he married 
Julio, daughter of Salis Schwabe of (llyu-v- 
garble, Anglesea. His practice steadily in- 
creased, and from 1879, when, ut, the request

of the public who follow ( celebrated trials' 
with an interest that never flags, lie took 
silk in 1882. In politics he was a liberal. 
His first attempt to get into parliament 
was at King's Lynn, and was unsuccessful, 
as also was his first contest at York in No- 
vember 1883, when, however, he was beaten 
by twenty-one votes only. At that time 
he, like the majority of liberal candidates, 
refused to vote even for an inquiry into 
home rule for Ireland, but he pledged him- 
self to support household suffrage and elec- 
tive local government in that country, and 
for making those pledges he incurred the 
public censure of Lord Salisbury, who, how- 
ever, lived to make them both good. In 
October 1884 he became recorder of Sheffield, 
and in November 1885 he and his great 
friend, Mr. Alfred Pease, were returned to the 
House of Commons for York, which citv he 
continued to represent till his death. From 
1885 to 1895 Lockwood led a very busy life 
both professionally and socially. ' His tall 
powerful frame, his fine head crowned with 
picturesque premature white hair, his hand- 
some healthy face, with its sunshine of 
genial, not vapid good nature, made him 
notable everywhere. So powerful was this 
personality that his entrance into a room 
seemed to change the whole complexion of 
the company, and I often fancied that he 
could dispel a London fog by his presence ' 
(see Lord Rosebery's letter in Mr. Birrell's 
sketch, Sir Frank Lockwood, 1898). 

In the House of Commons Lockwood, 
though he took no active part in debate, was 
a great figure, and his sketches depicting 
the occasional humours of that assembly 
were in much demand. During the vacation 
of 1894 Lord Rosebery, the premier (to whom 
Lockwood was warmly attached), offered 
him the post of solicitor-general, which he 
accepted, in succession to Sir Robert Reid, 
who became attorney-general. The election 
of 1895 restored Lord Salisbury to power, 
but owing to a difficulty about the scale of 
his successors remuneration, Lockwood 
nominally remained solicitor-general until 
August 1895, when Mr. (now Sir Robert) 
Finlay succeeded him. In the vacation of 
1896 he accompanied Charles Lord Russell 
of Killowen [q. v. Suppl.l, the lord-chief- 
justice of England, to the United States of 
America. About May 1897 his health 
showed signs of failing, and it gradually 
declined until his death at his house in 
Lennox Gardens on Sunday, 19 Dec. 1897, in 
the fifty-second year of his age. His wife 
and two children, both daughters, survived 
him. 

Lockwood made no pretensions to be con- 



sidered a learned lawyer, nor was he ac- 
counted a consummate advocate; but hit 
sound sense, ready wit, good feeling, and 
sympathetic nature, set off as these qualities 
were by a commanding presence and good 
voice, placed him in the front ranks of the 
bar, and easily secured him a large business. 
Both outside and inside his profession he 
enjoyed a large and deserved popularity with 
all sorts and conditions of men. He had all 
the domestic virtues, and was nowhere more 
appreciated than in his own home. His 
death was unexpected and chilled many 
hearts. A collection from his sketches was 
publicly exhibited in I^ondon after his death 
j for the benefit of the Barristers' Benevolent 
! Association, and some of the sketches have 
j been reproduced in an album, ' The Frank 
j Lockwood Sketch Book,' London, 1898, obi. 
4to. His lecture on ' The Law and Lawyers 
> of Pickwick,' published by the Roxburghe 
j Press in 1894, went into a second edition in 
1896. There is a memorial window and 
tablet in York Cathedral.

son of Sir Ralph Lopes, bart . [see Lopes, Sir 
Manasseh MassehJ, of Maristow, Devon, 
by Susan Gibbs, eldest daughter of A. Lud- 
low of Hey wood House, Wiltshire, was born 
at Devonport on 3 Oct. 1828. He was edu- 
cated at Winchester School and the univer- 
sity of Oxford, where he matriculated from 
Balliol College on 12 Dec. 1845, and gra- 
duated B.A. in 1849. He was admitted on 
5 June 1849 student at Lincoln's Inn, but 
on 26 May 1852 migrated to the Inner 
Temple, where he was called to the bar on 
7 June 1852, and elected bencher on 81 May 
1870, and treasurer in 1890. He practised 
first as a conveyancer and equity draftsman, 
afterwards as a pleader on the western cir- 
cuit and at Westminster. He was appointed 
recorder of Exeter in 1867, and was gazetted 
Q.C. on 22 June 1869. Returned to parlia- 
ment for Launceston in the conservative in- 
terest on 9 April 1868, he retained the seat 
until the general election of February 1874, 
when he rendered signal service to his party 
by wresting Frome from the liberals. In 
1876 he was appointed justice of the high 
court and knignted (28 Nov.) He sat suc- 
cessively in the common pleas and queen's 
bench divisions until his advancement in 
1885 to the court of appeal (1 Dec.), when 
he was sworn of the pnvy council (12 Dec.) 
He was raised to the peerage, on occasion of 
the queen's jubilee in 1897 (26 July), as

sure that the British subsidy to tbe amir

for the defence of Afghanistan against

amir so far as it could without exciting 
Afghan jealousy. It reached Cand ah ar on 
25 April. Its position, delicate from the 
first, became hazardous a mouth afterwards, 
when news arrived of the outbreak and 
spread of the sepoy mutiny in India. But 
it was important, both in the interest of tbe 
amir and for British prestige, that tbe mis- 
sion should not be recalled during the cri-n ;

He resumed command of I lie guides, and

ceived the medal with clasps. An attempt

severe wound in bis left arm. In March

nection with the guides. He became colonel 
in the army on 15 June. A good service 
pension was given to him in 186l>. He went 
home for nix months in that year, and on 

5 Sept. married Fanny, daughter of Charles 
John Myers of Dunningwetl, Cumberland, 
vicar of Flint-ham, Nottinghamshire. Early 
in 1869 he gave up the command of the

had inherited Belhelvie Lodge, and there he 
spent the remainder of hia life, occupying 
himself with sport (especially hawking), 
photography, and wood-carving. He died 
there on 12 Aug. 1896. Tall and powerful, 
a good rider, an excellent shot, and skilful 
with all weapons, he was an ideal frontier 
soldier, unequalled in his knowledge of 
Pathans and nis influence over them. He 
was, wrote Sir Richard Pollock, ' a singular 
mixture of shrewdness and simplicity, abso- 
lutely free from selfishness and self-seeking, 
wi£h great originality, a perfect temper, and 
a keen sense of humour.' His military career 
suffered by his absence from India during 
the mutiny, and his intense dislike of official 
routine made him decline civil employment, 
for which he was well qualified.

LUSHINGTON, EDMUND LAW 
(1811-1893), Greek professor at Glasgow, 
bom on 10 Jau. 1811, was the son of Ed- 
mund Henry Lushington, chief commis- 
sioner of the colonial board of audit, and 
master of the crown office, and of his second 
wife, Sophia, daughter of Thomas Phillips of 
Sedgeley, near Manchester. He passed his 
childhood at Hanwell, Middlesex, and was 
educated at Charterhouse school, one of his 
contemporaries being Thackeray, who was 
also with him for a time at Cambridge. 
Lushington, becoming head of the school 
while still younjj and not very robust, found 
the exacting duties of captain somewhat irk- 
some. Entering Trinity College, Cambridge, 
he was two years the junior of Tennyson, 
with whom, and with Arthur Hall am, Trench, 
and others, he was associated in the select 
club of twelve, called ' The Apostles ' (com- 
memorated in ' In Memoriam, lxxxvii.) 

In 1832 Lushington was senior classic 
and senior chancellors medallist, and became 
fellow and tutor of Trinity College. The year 
was a specially brilliant one, Henry Alford 
(~q. v.], Richard Shilleto Tq. v.]— 'a second 
Porson' — and William Ilepworth Thomp- 
son [q. v.], afterwards master of Trinity, also 
being in the list. In * The Virginians ' (1. xli.) 
Thackeray makes a covert though sufficiently 
obvious allusion to the brilliant scholarship 
of Thompson and Lushington. 



In 1838 Lushington succeeded Sir Daniel 
Keyte Sandford [<j. v.] as professor of Greek 
at Glasgow, gaining the appointment over 
Robert Lowe (Lord Sherbrooke), after Archi- 
bald Campbell Tait [q. v.l subsequently 
archbishop of Canterbury, had withdrawn 
his candidature. As a professor he won the 
admiration and the affection of his students, 
and while, as described in the epilogue to 
' In Memoriam/ ' wearing all that weight of 
learning lightly like a lower/ he invested 
his subject with a singular charm. In ' Prin- 
cipal Shairp and his Friends ' (p. 14) Pro- 
fessor Seller, alluding to Luabington's 
inaugural lecture of 1838-9, says: ' Shairp 
left the lecture, as he told me, repeating to 
himself the line 

That strain I heard was of a higher mood; 

and the impression thus produced was con- 
firmed by nis attendance on the private 
Greek class.' This accords with the uni- 
versal testimony of Lushington's students. 
In 1875 he resigned his chair, the university 
conferring on him the honorary degree of 
LL.D. He settled at Park House, Maid- 
stone, the residence described in the pro- 
logue to ' The Princess/ which is dedicated 
to nis brother Henry. In 1884 he was elected 
lord rector of Glasgow University, and the 
principal, John Caird [q. v. SupplJ, welcomed 
him with a fitting eulogy when he delivered 
the customary rectorial address. He died 
at Park House, Maidstone, on 13 July 1893. 
On 10 Oct. 1842 Lushington married 
Cecilia Tennyson, sister of Lord Tennyson, 
the marriage ceremony being performed by 
Charles Tennyson Turner [q. v.] (Lord 
Tennyson, A Memoir, i. 203). The epi- 
logue to Tennyson's 'In Memoriam' is an 
epithalamium on Lushington's marriage with 
the poet's sister. He was survived by his 
wife and his daughter Cecilia. 

Although believed to have written anony- 
mously for some of the reviews, Lushington 
made few acknowledged contributions to 
literature. He translated into Greek Tennv- 
son's 'GEnone ' (jb, i. 180) and ' Crossing the 
Bar/ the version of the latter giving the 
poet especial satisfaction (Jb. ii. 367). To 
volume i. (pp. 201-3) of the 'Memoir of 
Lord Tennyson' by his son he contributed 
interesting reminiscences. He collaborated 
with Sir Alexander Grant [q. v.] in edit- 
ing in 1866 (2nd edit. 1875) the ' Philoso- 
fihical Works' of James Frederick Ferrier 
q. v.], prefixing to the volume of 'Philo- 
sophical Remains' an exquisitely delicate 
and thoughtful memoir and appreciation. 
He published the Glasgow rectorial address 
in 1885.

when the strength of the regiment had been

sent in 1738 to France, where in 1748 he 
joined Lord Drummond's regiment of royal 
Scots guards. In March 1744 he was with 
the Earl Mariachal, and intended starting 
with the futile expedition of that year. 
Having in the following year been sent to 
Scotland to give information in connection 
with certain Jacobite disputes, he was in 
May despatched by the highland chiefs to 
France to testify to Charles their allegiance 
to his cause, but at the same time to warn 
him against an attempt to land in Scotland 
unless strongly backed by foreign assistance. 
His mission, however, was of no avail ; for 
Charles, before Macdonell's arrival in France, 
had already set sail on his rash adventure. 
Macdonell resolved to take part in it, but 
while returning to Scotland with a detach- 
ment of Drummond's guards he was cap- 
tured on 25 Nov. 1746 by H.M.S. Sheerness 
{London Gazette, 26-9 Nov., quoted in 
Bl 4IKIe'8/£ ine rary of Prince Charles Edward, 
Scottish Historical Society, 1897, p. Ill), 
and sent to the Tower of London, where he 
was detained until July 1747. In December 
1749 he helped himself to the Jacobite 
treasure concealed at Loch Arkaig. Already 
or shortly afterwards he had further resolved 
on the betrayal of the Jacobite cause, and 
having introduced himself to Henry Pel- 
ham, he, as Mr. Lang has elaborately and 
beyond cavil demonstrated, became a hired 
spy on Prince Charles and the Jacobites, 
corresponding with the government under 
the pseudonym of ' Pickle/ 

Perhaps it has been insufficiently borne in 
mind that Macdonell may have all along 
cherished resentment against the prince on 
account of the clan's removal to the left wing 
at Culloden, where it practically deserted the 
prince's cause by refusing to strike a blow on 
his behalf. True the clan gave the prince 
shelter during his wanderings, but Mac- 
donell himself may on account of the treat- 
ment of the clan, or for some other reason, 
have cherished a personal grudge against the 
prince. In any case he was probably clever 
enough to recognise that the prince himself 
had become impossible; and his interest cor- 
responding with his convictions, he may have 
persuaded himself that he was really saving 
his clan and the highlands generally from 
much needless suffering by frustrating the 
prince's madcap schemes. If, however, as 
is likely, his purpose was mainly selfish, it 
was unsuccessful, for the death of Pelham 
in 1754 blighted his main hopes of reward. 
On the death of his father in September of 
the same year, he became chief of the clan 
and succeeded to his father's impoverished 
fortunes. He died in 1761 in a hut adjoin- 



ing his ruined castle, and having no issue was 
succeeded in the chieftaincy by his nephew 
Duncan, son of his brother iEneas, who was 
slain at Falkirk. 

During the '45 the command of the Glen- 
garry clan was, on account of the imprison- 
ment of the chief, and of Alastair the chiefs 
eldest son, entrusted to the second son, 
^Eneas ; but in the absence of JEnesa in the 
highlands to procure reinforcements, the 
clan was, while on the march southwards to 
Derby, under the charge of Colonel Donald 
Macdonald of Lochgarry; and after the 
death of Mness at Falkirk, Lochgarry ac- 
companied the prince in his later wanderings 
and escaped with him to France, whencehs 
wrote to his chief a 'memorial' detailing 
the clan's achievements during the rebellion 
and its loyal conduct to the prince while a 
fufjitive in its fastnesses (printed in Blaixie's 
Itinerary of Prince Charles Edward, pp. 111- 
126). ' **

MACDOUGALL, Sir DUNCAN (1787- 
1862), lieutenant-colonel of the 79th Came- 
ron highlandere, son of Patrick MacDougall 
of Soroba, Argyleshire, by his wife Mary, 
daughter of Duncan M'Vicar, was born at 
Soroba in 1787. Educated at Edinburgh, he 
entered the army as ensign in 1804, served in 
the />3rd and 80th foot on the frontier, at 
the Cape of Good Hope, and in the peninsu- 
lar war. He took part in the third siege 
and in the capture by storm of Badajos on 
6 April 1812, in the siege and in the cap- 
ture on 27 June of the forts of Salamanca. 
In the battle of Salamanca on 22 July, he 
gallantly saved the colours of his regiment 
and was severely wounded. He was present 
at the siege of Burgos in September and 
October and the retreat from it, at the siege 
and capture on 31 Aug. 1813 of St. Sebas- 
tian, at the passage of the Bidassoa in Octo- 
ber, at the battles of Nivelle ^10 Nov.), the 
Nive (9 to 13 Dec.)i and the investment of 
Bayonne. He received three medals for his 
peninsular services. He took part in the 
American war of 1814, was present at the 
battle of Bladensburg on 24 Aug., the cap- 
ture of Washington, and the attack on Bal- 
timore on 12 Sept., when he was aide-de- 
camp to Major-general Robert Ross [q. v.], 
who was killed. He also served in the opera- 
tions against New Orleans in December 1814 
and January 1815, was aide-de-camp to Lieu- 
tenant-general Sir Edward Pakenham[q.v.^ 



nh.-n thnt officer was killed at the assault

Canadian rifle regiment, he joined it at 
Toronto, Canada, and for the next ten years 
served as a regimental officer there and at 
Kingston. On 3 March i rv>-l In- was iippninl ed 
superintendent of studies at Sandhurst, but 
the following year was sent on particular 
service to the Crimea, where he acted as 
n.*!>ihtiint i'ii.iarti , nuii*ti'r-j,'i , nt'riil on the staff 
of Iirigadier-generBl D. A. Cameron in the 
expedition to Kertch in May 1866, and 
attended Lord Knglan in the trenches at the 
unsuccessful assaultson the Itedanon 18 June. 
For his Crimean servict-s he received the war 
medal and clasp, the Turkish medul, and a 
brevet lieu tenant -colonelcy. On his return 
home he resumed hi- appointment at Sand- 
hurst, which he held until 1858. 

In 1858 his principal work, ' The Theory 
of War: illustrated t)y numerous Examples 
from Military History,' was published, and 
a second edition appeared in ItTiS. It soon 
became a text-book of military instruction, 
was translated inln French and German, and 
gave its author a first place among English 
military writers. In 18G7, in a pamphlet 
ent itled'The Senior Department of the Roval 
Military College,' Marl i.iu-'ril I drew attention 
to the want of proper instruction for staff 
officers, and on the formation of the staff 
college on 6 Feb. following, he became 
its first commandant. He piililihlu-d in ls.'irt 
a treatise written expressly for students of 
military history, entitled 'The Campaigns 
of Hannibal arranged and critically con- 
sidered. 1 

During his tenure of office at the staff 
college he was an industrious writer and 
lecturer, taking as some of his subjects 
'Napoleon's Campaign in Italy in 1798,' 
' The Military diameter of the great Duke of 
Marlborough,' ' General Sir Charles James 
Napier as Conqueror and Governor of Sind.' 
He wrote the obit uarv notice of Napier which 
appeared in the 'Times' of 13 Feb. 1*60, and 
in 1882 published ' Forts verutt Ships ' and 
'Defence of the Canadian Lakes and its 
influence on the gen. -ml Hrfence of Canada,' 
both written in crossing the Atlantic on a 
short, visit to America. In 1864 his life of 
his father-in-law, the historian of the penin- 
sular war, Sir William Francis Patrick 
Napier [q. v.], edited by Lord Aberdare, was 
published in two octavo volumes, and in 
the same year ' Modern Warfare as in- 
fluenced by Modem Artillery.' Early in 
I8BS lie contributed articles on sir William

brought to the especial notice of the authori- 
ties at home by Lord Monck, the governor- 
general {Despatch No. 53, 14 June 1866), 
who was so impressed with the value of 
MacDougall's work in the organisation of 
the militia and volunteers that, on leaving 
Canada, he wrote officially to thank him for 
having ' laid the foundation of a military 
system inexpensive, unoppressive, and effi- 
cient/ and sent a copy to the home authori- 
ties. During MacDougall's service on the 
staff in Canada he lectured on military sub- 
jects from time to time, and published a 
pamphlet on the ' Defence of Canada. 1 

Returning to England in April 1869 he 
wrote * The Army and its Reserves/ and was 
much occupied with the then burning ques- 
tion of army reform. In October 1871 he 
was appointed deputy inspector-general of 
the auxiliary forces at headquarters. lie 
presided over Cardwell's ' Localisation Com- 
mittee ' in that year, one of the most impor- 
tant which have ever sat at the war office, 
whose report, generally adopted, proposed 
by the fusion of the regular, reserve, and 
auxiliary forces under the generals com- 
manding districts, to form one army for de- 
fence under the commander-in-chief and by 
the institution of linked battalions, to have 
always one at home and one abroad, with 
depot centres for enlisting and training re- 
cruits. 

For five years from April 1873 MacDou- 
gall was head of the intelligence branch of 
the war office, at first as deputy adjutant- 
general, and afterwards as deputy quarter- 
master-general. Created a K.C.M.G. on 
30 May 1877, he was a year later appointed 
to the command in Xorth America, just at 
a time when relations with Russia were 
strained after the Russo-Turkish war. He 
undertook to have ten thousand trained and 
disciplined Canadian volunteers available 
for service wherever required, in a few weeks 
after the offer of their service was accepted, 
thus instituting a valuable precedent which 
has since been followed, not only by Canada, 
but by most of the self-governing colonies — 
notably in the recent South African troubles 
— to the great advantage of the empire. 

MacDougall returned to England in May 
1883, and retired from the active list in 
July 1K8.">. He died at his residence, Mel- 
bury Lodge, Kingston Hill, Surrey, on 
28 Nov. 1891, and was buried at" East 
Putnev cemetery, the sergeants of the King- 
ston depot carrying his body to the grave. 
He was twice married: first, in 1844, to 
Louisa Augusta (d. 1856), third daughter of 
Sir William Francis Patrick Napier; and, 
secondly, in I860, to Marianne Adelaide, 



who survived him, daughter of Philip John 
Miles of Leigh Court, Somerset. There was 
no issue of either marriage. A miniature of 
Sir Patrick MacDougall by Not man of Mont- 
real, Canada, is in Lady MacDougall's pos- 
session. 

In addition to the works already men- 
tioned, and many articles in the reviews 
and magazines, MacDougall was the author 
of the following: 'Emigration: its Advan- 
tages to Great Britain and her Colonies, 
together with a detailed Plan for the Pro- 
motion of the proposed Railway between 
Halifax and Quebec, by means of Coloniza-

MACFIE, ROBERT ANDREW (1811- 
1893), free-trade advocate, son of John 
Macfie, sugar refiner, of Leith, by Alison, 
second daughter of William Thorburn, was 
born at Leith on 4 Oct. 181 1. Educated at 
the high schools of Leith and Edinburgh, 
and at the university of Edinburgh, he en- 
tered, in 1827, his father's business, of which 
about ten years later he established a branch 
at Liverpool. There he co-operated with 
Leone Levi in founding the chamber of com- 
merce, and was elected trustee of the Ex- 
change. He retired from business about 
1863 and devoted the rest of his life to pub- 
lic objects. As member for Leith Burghs 
in the parliament of 1868-74, he made him- 
self conspicuous by his uncompromising Ad- 
vocacy of free trade in inventions, proposing 
a system of ' national recompenses ' in lieu of 
patents. He also agitated for the abridg- 
ment of authors' copyrights. These extreme 
views he combinea with an earnest solici- 
tude for the consolidation and defence of the 
empire, which rendered him a determined 
opponent of all tampering with the Union, 
and a pioneer of imperial federation. He 
died at his countrv seat, Dreghorn, near 
Edinburgh, on 16 " Feb. 1893. He was 
F.R.C.I.and F.R.S.E., and a Knight Com- 
mander of the Ilawaian Order of Kaiakaua. 

Macfie married in 1810 Caroline Eliza, 
daughter of John Eastin of Conrance Hill, 
Dumfries.

instead of treasurer, I'nilmljly the most im- 
portant event of his ndmiiiis! ration nas his 
annexation of New Guinea to Queensland 
on 4 April 1883 ; it was a daring act for a 
colonial statesman, and, after nosing mueh 
criticism at home, was disallowed by Glad- 
stone's government. As au almost imme- 
diate result of ill'.' disallowance, and to the 
Seat indignation of the Australian colonies, 
ermany seized New Guinea and several 
places in the Western Pacific; und the im- 



large part of New Guinea. On the question 
of a railway concession to an English com- 
pany on the land grant system be was left 
in a minority at the general election of this 
year, and resigned once in November 1883, 
after being (wire beaten in the i louse of 
Assembly. Very soon after this defeat he 
left for Great Britain, where he spent some 
months, receiving tin' freedom of Ayr and 
on honorary LL.D. from Glasgow 1 ni ver- 
sify. 

On his return to Queensland McH wraith 
professed to have retired from politics, hut 
in 1888 he again stood for parliament, was 
elected for North Brisbane, and on a pro- 
gramme of a 'national party' came into 
power at oaoeon 13 June la premier, holding 
office both as colonial secretary and treasurer. 
Tie began by it difference with the governor, 
Sir Anthony Musgrave [q. v.], on the con-

Crown's prerogative of mercy ; the point was 
ihi'iili'l in M.llwraith's favour. In October 
he came into collision with the imperial 
government on the subject of the appoint- 
ment of a governor; but in this case his 
BDSUationwu not made good. Ob 80 Nov. 
Mcllwraith relinquished the position of pre- 
mier to Mr. Boyd Duulop Morehead, though

thither and contest Ayr, his native city, but 
he declined. In March 1891 he represented 
Queensland at the federation convention 
held at Sydney. In November 1892 he took 
another voyage for his health, this time to 
Northern India, returning in March 1893 to 
find that the premier had resigned and the 
ministry was in a manner in commission. 
On 27 March he was called upon to form a 
ministry. A general election soon followed, 
and he came in again with a larger working 
majority than any administration Queens- 
land had ever had before. The difficulty 
which faced him at that time was the atti- 
tude of the so-called labour party. On 
27 Oct. he resigned the position of premier 
owing to the failure of his health, but nomi- 
nally remained in the ministry; on 15 Jan. 
1893 he came to England for medical ad- 
vice ; and in a short time his illness became 
so pronounced that he could not return to 
Queensland. For six years following he was 
in the hands of specialists and confined to 
the house. In 1895 he was offered but de- 
clined the position of agent-general. He 
died on 17 July 1900 at 208 Cromwell Road, 
London, and was buried at Ayr. 

Mcll wraith's reputation was not confined 
to his own colony, where his influence was 
commanding. But his connection with the 
Queensland Investment and Land Mortgage 
Company involved him in a series of legal 
actions which came to an end in 1892. Sub- 
sequently he was severely criticised over the 
conduct of business by the Queensland Na- 
tional bank, of which he was a director. He 
was an associate of the Institute of Civil 
Engineers and was made K.C.M.G. in 1882. 

Mcll wraith married, on 14 June 1879, 
Harriet te Ann, daughter of Hugh Mosman 
of Annidale, New South Wales, who with 
four daughters survived him.

MACKAY, ALEXANDER (1815-1895), 
educational writer, born in Thurso on 15 Xov. 
181o, was the youngest of the eight children 
of Murdoch Mackay, farmer, of Lat heron, 
Caithness. On his father's second marriage 
voting Mackay went to Aberdeen, where 
he studied at King's College, and graduated 
M.A. in IS40. In 1844 he became the first 
Free church minister of Khynie in Aberdeen- 
shirts the established minister of which had 
been one of the seven clergymen of Strath- 
bogie deposed by the evangel ical majority of 
t ho church of Scotland. Here his geological 



studies, chiefly in connection with rare fossils 
found in the old red sandstone in a quarry 
near Rhyme, brought him into communica- 
tion with Hugh Miller, Sir A. Ramsay, of 
the Geological Survey, Sir Roderick I. Slur- 
chison, and Dr. A. Keith Johnston, who re- 
commended him as a fellow of the Royal 
Geographical Society in 1859. 

In 1861 Mackay published a ' Manual of 
Modern Geography, Mathematical, Physical, 
and Political/ which attracted much at- 
tention, and has since proved a mine of 
wealth to other writers on geography. In 
1866 the degree of LL.D. was conferred on 
him by King's College, Aberdeen. 

In 1867, finding- the charge of a congrega- 
tion leas congenial than literary work, he 
resigned his pastorate at Rhynie and went 
to Edinburgh, from which he removed to 
Ventnor in 1878. During this period he 
devoted himself entirely to works on geo- 
graphy and kindred subjects. He had just 
completed the rewriting and revision of 
proofs of his work on physiography and 
physical geography, when he died suddenly 
at Ventnor on 81 Jan. 1895. Mackay mar- 
ried in November 1846 Margaret Lillie, 
daughter of Alexander Lillie of Banff. By 
her he had five sons, all of whom he sur- 
vived. One of them was the well-known 
missionary of Uganda, Alexander Murdoch 
Mackay [q. v.] 

Mackay s works have had a very large 
circulation, and are characterised by the best 
qualities of the old school of geographical 
text-books, being full of facts systemati- 
cally arranged, scrupulously verified, and 
illustrated by brief notes of general interest. 
In one instance he made an attempt to fasten 
the elementary facts on the minds of young 
scholars by producing a * Rhyming Geo- 
graphy ' (1873 ; new edit. 1876), some of the 
stanzas of which, once read, are difficult to 
forget. His most arduous piece of work was 
an ingenious mnemonic system for remem- 
bering numbers, which he developed in a 
book entitled 'Facts and Dates' (1869; 3rd 
edit. 1879). 

Mackay was also the author of the follow- 
ing works: 1. 'Elements of Modern Geo- 
graphy/ 1864 ; 12th edit. 1872. 2. ' Out- 
lines of Modern Geography/ 1865. 3. ' First 
Steps in Geography/ 1869. 4. ' Geography 
of the British Empire/ 1869. 5. < The In- 
termediate Geographv/ 1874; 10th edit.

Rev. George Davidson, Latheron/ 1875. 
7. « Handbook to the Seat of War in Turkey/ 
1877. 8. ' Physiography and Physical Geo- 
graphy/ 1877. He also edited and revised 
Reid's ' Elements of Astronomy/ 1874.

S.ui In]! MM ill' Kin:.-

title branch of M»ckenzies, was 
attorney-general of Grenada, and lent much 
be war with Franc.-, 1793*1815, 
educated ■ueuesaivelj at a school 
in Cumberland, at. Dollar, and at Os- 
westry, and in l&Sri he was appointed a 
eadrt of inlimirv mi the Madras establish- 
ment. Ho served a.i adjutant of the 48th 
Madras native infantry m the Coorg cam- 
paten iti 1834, and was present in nil the 
aetiooa of that campaign, during a portion of 
which he held the appointment of deputy- 
aaaistiint nuartermnsur- general. At the 
close of the campaign his services were 
favourably noticed by the brigadier-general 
commanding the force. In 1836 he ac- 
tuofmiued Captain (afterwards Admiral sir 
Henry Ducie) Chads in an expedition to the 
Strait* of Malacca, which had been organised 
for thepuipre of extirpating piracy in those 
seas. Although Mackenzie was on board 
Captain Chads'* ship only as a passenger, bis 
service* and his gallantry were such that they 
mi acknowledgments from Captain 
Chads and afterwards from Lord Auckland, 
then governor-general of India, who selected 
10 for employment with the force 
then serving in Afghanistan. In this un- 
fortunate expedition, which, owing mainly to 
!.■■ uenerul in command, 
ended in the complete destruction of a large 
■ co, Mackenzie greatly distinguished 
hinuolf. He was employed at first as

mm anil of this fort when the Insu

of the first wi

fence: 'On S Nov. it became certain that 
Mackenzie, with all his gallantry and all bis 
laborious zeal, working day and night with- 
out food and without rest, conducting the 
defence with us much judgment as spirit, 
could not much longer hold his post. His 
men wen wearied out, his ammunition was 
exhausted, his wounded Wire dving forwent 
of medical aid. lie bad defended bis position 
throughout two days of toil, suffering, and 
danger; and no aid had come from canton- 
ments, laiiu- \v:is lilirk in enine. So, yield- 
ing at last to the importunity of others, be 
moved out of the fort and fought his way by 
night to cantonments. It was u Uillirult, 
and hazardous march ; and it most by a 
miracle Mackenzie escaped to encounter new 
dangers, to sustain new trials, and to live in 
habitual gratitude to God for his wonderful 
preservation.' 

In the following mouth Mackenzie was 
present hi r lie crinierence bet ween the envoy, 
•Sir William Knv Maenaghten [q.v.~], and the 
Afghan chief, Akbdr Khan. He and Eldred 
Pottingor [q.v.] had in vain endeavoured to 
dissuade Macnnghten from attending the 
conference, assuring him that there were 
strong grounds for suspecting treachery. 
Hut the conference took place and the envoy 
was treacherously seized and shot by Akbar 
Khan. At the same time Mackenzie and 
George Lawrence I q.v.] were made prisoners. 
Later on, during tha unfortunnto retreat 
from Kabul, Mackenzie, who had been set 
free, displayed the greatest courage and 
excellent judgment, and did all in his power 
to stimulate the efforts of tin officers in supe- 
rior military command. Indeed it is not too 
much to say that, if Mackenzie had been the 
general in command, instead of being only a 
captain, the disasters which attended the first 
Afghan war might have been averted, In 
the course of the retreat, it. having Imbd 
arranged that hostages should be given up 
to Akbdr Khan, Mackenzie was selected as 
one of them. His selection was approved 
by Akbai Khan as a man who waa certain 
to keep his word. In consequence of his 
deeply religions life the Afghans called him 
the ' English Moollah,' and bad the greatest 
confidence in him. While in this position 
he was deputed by Eldred Pot linger, with 
the approval of Akbiir Khan, to bohvot letters 
to the political agent at Jelliilabad and to 
General Sir George Pollock fq. v.], who had 
reached that place. (In both these missions 
he had more than one very narrow escape, 
and after ithe second ho was attacked by a 
dangerous illness which nearly cost him bis 
life. Mackenzie was subsequently carried oft" 
by Akbdr KJnin with the rest of the hostages

and prisoners, and with them was being 
moved over the Hindu Kiish, whence they 
were to be sent to Bokhara to be sold as 
slaves, when, owing to the arrival of Pol- 
lock's force in the vicinity of Kabul and the 
flight of Akbar Khan, the Afghan in charge 
of the prisoners was induced by a guaran- 
tee of a large sum of money to release them. 
Before returning to India Mackenzie took 
part with Henry Havelock [see IIavelock, 
Sir IIexry] on the assault upon the fort of 
Istaliff. He, like Eldred Pottinger and the 
others who hud distinguished themselves 
during the insurrection and the retreat, was 
one of the victims of the unreasoning preju- 
dice which led Lord Ellenborough [see Law, 
Edward, Earl of Ellen no rouohJ to treat 
with studied neglect all who had been in | 
any way connected with the recent disasters, 
except the garrison of Jellalabad. Macken- 1 
zie was refused the Kabul medal and the six 
months' pay which accompanied it, and it 
was not until IMS that, owing to the inter- 
position of Lord Dalhousie, it was granted 
to him. He was also created a C.B. 

Mackenzie was subsequently employed on 
the north-west frontier to raise a Sikh regi- 
ment (the 4th), with which he kept the 
peace of the border during the last Sikh 
campaign. It was while thus employed 
that he made the acquaintance of Lord Dal- 
housie, who formed a high opinion of his 
character and of his talents. It is said to 
have been by his advice that Lord Dalhousie 
was induced to abandon an idea he had 
formed of making over to Afghanistan the 
country between the Indus and the Suleiman 
range. ' Mackenzie urged that Peshawar was 
the gate of India, and therefore should not 
be given up. He was still a regimental 
captain when, in 1850, he was appointed by 
Lord Dalhousie brigadier-general in com- 
mand of the Ellichpiir division of the Hy- 
derabad contingent. In nominating Mac- 
kenzie for this post the governor-general 
remarked that ' the gallantry, ability, and 
endurance displayed by him at the time of 
the rising at Kabul are* amply recorded, and 
in connection with the subsequent events of 
that period entitle him to a higher reward 
at the hands of the government of India 
than the command of a local corps in the 
Sutlej provinces.' Mackenzie had held his 
xn!W command for some years when a mutiny 
occurred in one of the cavalry regiments of 
the contingent which nearly cost him his 
life. In September 18o5, on the occasion 
of the Muharrain procession at Bolarum,the 
great day of which happened that year to be 
a Sunday. Mackenzie issued orders which in 
the first* instance prohibited any procession 



being held on the Sunday, but wen subse- 
quently so far modified as to permit of the 
processions taking place within the lines of 
the regiments, but not in the barracks or 
along the roads. This order was openly 
violated by the 3rd cavalry regiment of the 
contingent, which marched past the bri- 
gadier's house and grounds, making a hideous 
din when the procession reached that spot. 
Mackenzie sent out orderlies to stop them, 
and, this interference proving ineffectual, 
went out himself unarmed and seized two 
small standards which the sepoys were 
carrying. The result was a tumult, in the 
course of which Mackenzie was dangerously 
wounded. The government, while paying a 
high tribute to Mackenzie ' as a good and 
distinguished soldier, and as honourable, 
conscientious, and gallant a gentleman as 
the ranks of the army can show/ condemned 
the course taken bv him on this occasion as 
rash and ill-judged. 

Although this judgment was questioned 
by some very distinguished officers, there 
can be no doubt that it had an unfortunate 
influence upon Mackenzie's subsequent career. 
He was compelled by his wounds to return 
to England tor a time. Afterwards he held 
the political appointment of agent to the 
governor-general with the Xawab Nazim of 
Bengal; but there he appears not to have 
received the support which ought to have 
been afforded to him at headquarters, and he 
was transferred to one of the civil depart- 
ments of the army as superintendent of army 
clothing, a post ludicrously inappropriate to 
his previous services. Some years later, on 
his claiming a divisional command in his 
own presidency, it was withheld from him 
by the commander-in-chief on the ground of 
the censure which had been passed upon 
him in the Bolarum case. On that occasion 
the governor of Madras (Francis, lord Napier 
ji.x. Suppl.]) and one of the members of coun- 
cil expressed strong disapproval of the com- 
mander-in-chief's decision, and referred the 
question to the secretary of state, who, how- 
ever, declined to interfere. Mackenzie finally 
left India in 1873, and died at Edinburgh on 
22 Oct. 1881. A photogravure portrait of 
Mackenzie, aged 74, is prefixed to Mrs. 
Mackenzie's ' Storms and Sunshine ' (Edin- 
burgh, 1884, 2 vols.) Mackenzie married 
first, in May 1832, Adeline, eldest daughter 
of James Pat tie of the Bengal civil service, 
who died four vears afterwards. He married 
secondly, in 1843, Helen, eldest daughter of 
AdmiralJohn Erskine Douglas, who survives 
him, and has published several works re- 
lating to India, besides the life of her hus- 
band.

the coast of India and Burmali, the Persian 
Gulf, and the east coast of Africa, besides 
establishing subsidiary lines of connection 
with Great Britain, the Dutch East Indies, ' 
and Aulralia. He was careful to have his

for England the whole of what i 
German East Africa. In 1880 the foreign 
minister availed himself of Mackinnon's 
influence to secure the coast line from 
Wangn to Kipini. A charter was granted, 
and the Imperial British East Africa Com- 
pany was formally i n cor] K) rated on 18 April 
1888, with Mackinnon as chairman. The 
company acquired a const lino of ISO miles, 
including the excellent harbour of Mombasa, 
and extending from the river Tana to the 
frontier of aha German protectorate. The 
company, which included among its prin- 
ciples the abolition of the slave trade, the 
prohibition of trade monopoly, and the 
equal treatment of all nationalities, found 
itself seriously handicapped in its relations 
with Ionian associations, such as the Oer- 
uuin East African Company, by the strenuous 
support which they received from their 
respective governments. The British go- 
vernment, on the other hand, was debarred 
by the principles of English colonial ad- 
ministration from affording similar assistance. 
The territory of the company was finally 
taken over by the British government on 
1 July 1895 in return for a cash payment. 

Mackinnon had a great part in promoting 
Sir FI. M. Stanley's expedition for the relief 
of Emin Pasha. In November 1886 he 
addressed a letter, urging immediate action, 
to Sir James Fergusson, under-secretary of 
state for foreign alfairs, and followed this 
by submitting to Lord Iddesleigh, the foreign 
secretary, a memorandum suggesting the 
formation of a small committee to send out 
an expedition. He and his friends sub- 
scribed more than half the bub of 29.Q00& 
provided for the venture, the rest baton 
furnished by the Egyptian government (cf. 
In Darkest Africa, 1800, prefatory epistle). 

Mackinnon was for some time a director 
of the City of Glasgow Bank, and assisted 
to extricate the concern from i 
difficulties. In 1870, finding that li< Mold 
not. approve lie 1 policy of the other directors, 
he resigned his seat on the board. On the 
failure of the bank in 1878 the liquidat 
brought a claim against him in the court 
session for about 400,000/. After a r 
tracted litigation Mackinnon, who 1 
peremptorily declined to list en to any sugges- 
tion ol compromise, waa completely eso 
rated by the court from the charges brou, 
against him, and it was demonstrated I

the course taken by the directors was con- 
trary to his express advice. 

Mackinnon was one of the chief sup- 
porters of the Free Church of Scotland. 
Towards the end of his life, however, the 
passage of the Declaratory Act, of which 
he disapproved, led to some difference of 
opinion between him and the leaders of the 
church, and he materially assisted the 
seceding members in the Scottish highlands. 
In 1891 he founded the East African 
Scottish Mission. 

In 1882 Mackinnon was nominated CLE., 
and on 15 July 1889 he was created a 
baronet. He died in London, in the Bur- 
lington Hotel, on 22 June 1893, and was 
buried at Clachan in Argyleshire on 28 June. 
He was a highlander of the best type, a 
hospitable host, and a generous benefactor. 
He possessed great administrative ability. 
"When Sir Bartle Frere sent Sir Ijewis Pelly 
to the Persian Gulf in 1862 he said, ' Look 
out for a little Scotsman called Mackinnon ; 
you will find him the mainspring of all the 
British enterprise there.' 

On 12 May 1856 Mackinnon married 
Janet Colouhoun (d. 1894), elder daughter 
of John Jameson of "Woodside Crescent, 
Glasgow. He had no issue.

MACKNIGHT, THOMAS (1829-1899), 
political writer, born at Gainsford, co. Dur- 
ham, on 15 Feb. 1829, was son of Thomas 
Macknight and his wife Elizabeth. After 
being educated at a school at Gainsford kept 
by Dr. Bowman, Macknight removed to 
London, and on 28 Sept. 1849 entered the 
medical faculty at King's College. In 1850 
he won the Stephen prize for an essay on 
'The Historical Plays of Shakespeare' 
(London, 1850, 8vo), and in 1851 the 
Leathes prize for divinity ; he also obtained 
three special certificates for physiology, 
chemistry, and botany. He was president 
of the King's College Literary and Scientific 
Union, and published an ' Address on the 
Literature of the Age/ which he delivered 
on 12 March 1851. He left King's College 
in 1851, and took to writing for the press ; 
he was a whig of the Palmerstonian school, 
and his first book, published anonymously, 
was 4 The Uight Hon. Benjamin Disraeli: a 
Literary and Political Biography ' (London, 
1854, 8vo), in which Disraeli's career and 
policy were vigorously attacked. The book 
was at the time attributed to (Sir) William 
Harcourt, and Lord Lyndhurst denounced 



it as 'a very blackguard publication and 
written in a very blackguard style ' (Croker 
Papers, 1885, hi. 310). Macknighrs next 
book waa 'Thirty Years of Foreign Policy : 
a History of the Secretaryships of the Earl 
of Aberdeen and Viscount Palmerston ' (Lon- 
don, 1855, 8vo) ; this is a defence of the 
policy leading up to the Crimean war, which 
Macknight declared to be ' inevitable. 9 From 
these party pamphlets Macknight turned to 
his most substantial work, his * History of 
the Life and Times of Edmund Burke ' (Lon- 
don, 1858-60, 8 vols. 8vo), which remains 
the best detailed life of Burke ; it had occu- 

Sied much of Macknight's time since he left 
king's College, and he had published two 
papers on Burke in ' Eraser's Magazine ' for 
November and December 1851. In 1863 
he published his ' Life of Henry St. John, 
Viscount Bolingbroke' (London, 8vo). 

Early in 1866 Macknight was appointed 
to succeed Mr. Frank El Hill as eaitor of 
the Belfast 4 Northern Whig.' He crossed 
to Ireland on 31 Jan. 1866, and remained 
editor of the 'Whig* for thirty-two years. 
He made his paper the mainstay of the 
liberal party in Ireland, and vigorously de- 
fended the Irish church disestablishment 
and the land acts of Gladstone's government 
from 1868 to 1874. The influence of the 
1 Northern Whip ' under his editorship was 
mainly responsible for the return of Mr. 
(afterwards Sir Thomas) McClure, a liberal, 
and Mr. William Johnston of Bally kilbeg, an 
independent, as members for Belfast in 1868. 
For nis services on this occasion he was pre- 
sented with a testimonial by his friends on 
26 May 1869. Macknight also supported 
Gladstone's government from 1880 to 1885, 
but, like most liberals in Ulster, he differed 
from Gladstone on home rule, and remained 
a staunch unionist till his death ; he con- 
tinued, however, to advocate drastic measures 
of land reform in Ireland. 

In 1891 Macknight was presented with 
another testimonial in recognition of his 
twenty-five years' service as editor of the 




eight Years' Expei 
(London, 2 vols. 8vo). Macknight died at 
his residence, 28 Wellington Park, Belfast, 
on 19 Nov. 1899.

Maitland 



Sir Peregrine Maitland [q. v.], and brother 
of Brownlow Maitland and of Charles 
Maitland (1815-1866) [q. v.] His father 
was a noted preacher, and Edward Mait- 
land was brought up among strict evan- 
gelical ideas, and rigorous theories about 
original sin and atonement. After educa- 
tion at a large private school in Brighton, he 
was admitted as a pensioner at Caius College, 
Cambridge, on 19 April 1843, and graduated 
B.A. in 1847. lie was destined by his 
family for the pulpit, but was diverted from 
taking orders by doubts as to faith and voca- 
tion, and by the feeling that the church was 
rather ' a tomb for the preservation of em- 
balmed doctrines ' than a living organism. 
In his perplexity he got leave of absence 
from hi 8 home for a year, and left England. 
He went in 1849 to California, became one 
of the band of ' forty-niners/ and remained 
abroad, on the shores of the Pacific, mainly 
in America and Australia, where he became 
a commissioner of crown lands, until the one 
year of absence had grown into nine. He 
married in Australia, but was left a widower 
with one son after a year of wedlock. 

Returning to England at the end of 1857 
he devoted himself to literature, with the 
dominant aim of ' so developing the intui- 
tional faculty as to find the solution of all 
problems having their basis in man's spiri- 
tual nature, with a view to the formulation 
of a perfect system of thought and rule of 
life.' Many of the vicissitudes of his life, 
both physical and mental, were recorded 
with but little distortion in his romance 
called ' The Pilgrim and the Shrine. From 
the Life and Correspondence of Herbert 
Ainslie, B.A. Cantab., which was published 
in 1867, and warmly acclaimed by thought- 
ful critics. Tt was followed bv a romance 
called < The Higher Law ' (1809), which re- 
presents the escape of a youth from the 
trammels, no longer of orthodox religion, 
but of traditional morals. Maitland became 
a figure in society, and was appreciated 
highly by Lord Houghton and Sir Francis 
Hastings Doyle. He began to write in the 
' Spectator* and ' Examiner,' and did some 
reviewing for the ' Athenaeum ' from 1870 
onwards. His book ' By and By : an Histo- 
rical Romance of the Future' (1873) led to 
his making the acquaintance of Anna Kings- 
ford [q. v.], whom he visited at her hus- 
band's vicarage of Atcham, in Shropshire, in 
February 1874. In conjunction with her 
he* produced anonymously, in 1875, 'The 
Keys of the Creeds.' At the close of 1874 
his mother died at Brighton, and Maitland 
accompanied Mrs. Kingsford to Paris. He 
joined her crusade against materialism, ani- 



mal food, and vivisection, upon which sub- 
ject he wrote a forcible letter in the ' Exa- 
miner' (June 1876), which attracted the 
most widespread attention to the subject. 
In this same year he first saw the apparition 
of his father, who had then been ten yean 
dead, and he soon afterwards recognised that 
he ' belonged to the order of the mystics.' 

In 1876 Maitland informs us that he ac- 
quired a new sense, that of ' a spiritual sen- 
sitiveness/ by means of which he opened re- 
lations with the church invisible of the 
spiritual world. He was able to see the 
spiritual condition of people. In a state of 
mind which must have approximated to that 
of William Blake, he tells us that he saw 
upon one occasion the soul of a tree. He 
could also, he asseverated, recall the memory 
of some of his past lives. He was tola* 
through a sensitive that these had been 
many, that he had lived in trees and ani- 
mals, and that he had been a prince. He 
' remembered 'a life lived in ancient Thebes; 
he believed that he had been Marcus Aure- 
lius and St. John the Evangelist (hence the 
mention of boiling oil was inexpressibly pain- 
ful to him). St. John, he believed, was a re- 
incarnation of the prophet Daniel. 

In 1881, before a highly fashionable audi- 
ence, he gave a series of lectures upon his 
new or, as he affirmed, revived esoteric creed ; 
these lectures formed the groundwork of his 
1 revelation,' in which Anna Kingsford col- 
laborated, « The Perfect Way ; or, the Find- 
ing of Christ,' 1882 (revised 1887 and 1890). 
By publishing this in his own name hie 
admits that he cut himself off from his old 
friendships and all his literary and social 
ambitions. A striking parallel is afforded 
by the later life of Laurence Oliphant [q.v.l, 
with whom Maitland had a good deal in 
common, though he was constrained to ex- 
press dissent from the spiritualistic theories 
embodied in ' Sympneumata.' 

Maitland joined the Theosophical Society 
about 1883, but the vagaries 01 Madame Bla- 
vatsky soon compelled him to secede from 
the * London Lodge,' and in May 1884, in 
collaboration with Mrs. Kingsford, he founded 
the Hermetic Society, of mystic rather than 
occult character, claiming no abnormal 
powers, and ' depending for guidance upon 
no Mahatmas.' In 1885, with some help 
from ' Anna,' he rendered into English the 
1 Minerva Mundi ' and other hermetic writings 
of Hermes Trismegistus. In 1886 he and 
Mrs. Kingsford visited Madame Blavatsky at 
Ostend, but refused to be inveigled back into 
the theosophical fold. After the death of 
Anna Kingsford, in February 1888, Maitland 
lived alone at 1 Thurloe Square Studios, Lon-

MANGLES, ROSS DONNELLY (1801- 
1877), chairman of the East India Com- 
pany, born in 1801, was the son of James 
Mangles {d. September 1838) of Woodbridge, 
near Guildford, by his wife Mary, youngest 
daughter of John Hughes of Guildford. He 
was named after Admiral Sir Ross Donnelly 

Sq. v. Suppl.l, on whose ship his relative, 
ames Mangles [q. v.], first served. He was 
educated at Eton and the East India Com- ' 

?any's College at Haileybury. On 30 April 
819 he entered the Bengal civil service as a 
writer. He arrived in India in the follow- 
ing year, and on 28 Sept. 1821 he was ap- 
pointed assistant to the secretary to the 
board of commissioners for the ceded and 
conquered provinces. In 1822 he was acting 
collector of government customs and town 
duties at Farukhabad, and on 12 June 1823 
he was nominated assistant to the secretary 
to the board of revenue for the Lower Pro- 
vinces and acting commissioner of the 
Sundarbans. On 20 Aug. 1825, during the 
first Burmese war, he became secretarv to 
the commissioner of Pegu and Ava. On 

21 April 1S2i» he was appointed deputy- 
secretary in the judicial and territorial de- 
partments. After a visit to England ex- 
tending from April 1S2S to November 1831, 
lie became on t> IVc. officiating junior secre- 
tary to the sadr board of revenue. On 
3 April 1S^2 he was nominated deputy- 
ikvretary in the general department ; on 

22 Feb. 1S33 magistrate ana collector of 
Tipperah ; on 1 July magistrate and col- 
lector of customs and land revenue at 
Chitt&gong ; and on 4 Nov. magistrate and 



collector of Agra, On 13 May 1835 he was 
placed in the important post of secretarv to 
the government of Bengal in the judicial 
and revenue departments. This office he 
continued to hold until his final return to 
England early in 1839. It was one of es- 
pecial authority, because, during the absence 
of the governor-general, George Eden, earl 
of Auckland [q. v.], who was also, in ac- 
cordance with custom, lieutenant-governor 
of Bengal, the administration of affairs 
of the province fell almost entirely into the 
hands of the secretary. So great was 
Mangles's influence, that the natives used to 
say tnat there were over them three English 
lords — 'Lord Colvin [see John Russell 
ColvinJ, Lord Auckland, and Lord Mangles/ 
On 28 May 1838 he also filled the position 
of temporary member of the sadr board of 
revenue. 

On his return to England he turned his 
attention to politics, and at the general elec- 
tion of 1841 he was returned to parliament 
on 1 July in the liberal interest for Guild- 
ford, a borough which his father had repre- 
sented from 1831 till 1837. This seat he 
retained until 1858. He gained a high re- 

futation in parliament as an authority on 
ndia matters. He was elected a director 
of the East India Company on 14 April 
1847, and filled the post of chairman in 
1857-8, when he was succeeded by Sir Fre- 
derick Currie [a. v.], the last chairman of 
the company. Mangles retired from parlia- 
ment on his appointment, on 21 Sept. 1868, 
as a member of the council of India. This 
office he held until 1866, when he resigned 

| his seat on account of advancing age. He 
died in London at 23 Montagu Street, 

: Montagu Square, on 16 Aug. 1877. On 
16 Feb. 1830 he married Harriet, third 
daughter of George Newcome of Upper 
Wimpole Street. By her he had issue. His 

1 son, Ross Mangles, obtained the Victoria 

1 Cross for gallant conduct near Arrah in 
1857 during the Indian mutiny. 

Mangles was the author of: 1. ' A Brief 
Vindication of the East India Company's 
Government of Bengal from the Attacks of 
Messrs. [Robert" 1 Rickards and [John] Craw- 
furd • "q. v.], London, 1830, 8vo. 2. 4 Chris-

commissions in the king's army as captain 
and major of foot. He commonly described 
himself as Major Cosmo Manuche. He served 
continuously to the end of the war in Eng- 
land, and then joined the royalists in Ire- 
land. Returning to England, he sought 
a livelihood by 'boarding scholars' and 
writing plays, most of which he dedicated 
to Lord Northampton. His poverty was 
great. In his need he did not disdain the 
service of the Protector. On 4 June 1656 
he sent, through Secretary Thurloe, a petition 
to Cromwell begging for the payment of 
20/., which he claimed to be the balance of 
an account due to him for 'making dis- 
coveries of the disturbers of our present 
happy government ' ( Cal. State Papers, Bom. 
16*35-6, p. 348). At the time of the Re- 
storation he represented to adherents of 
Charles II that he had often suffered im- 
prisonment during the Protectorate for his 
lovaltv to the cause of the king. On 12 Dec. 
1661 Lord Berkeley of Stratton, Sir Gilbert 
Talbot, and Sir Lewis Dwe signed a certi- 
ficate attesting Manuche s military achieve- 
ments in Charles 1*8 behalf, and the present 
ill -health and destitution not only of him- 
self but of his wife and two children (Eger- 
ton MS. 2623, f. 34). 

No less than twelve plays — three in print 
and nine in manuscript — have been assigned 
to Manuche. The two bv which he is best 
known were published in 1652, with his 
name on the title-page. The titles run: 
* The Just General : a Tragi : Comedy, written 
by Major Cosmo : Manuche. Loudon, Printed 
for M. M. T. C. and G. Bedell, and are to be 
sold at their Shop at the Middle Temple 
gate in Fleet Street, 1652:' and *The Loyal 
Lovers: a Tragi Comedy Written by Major 
Cosmo Manuche. London, Printed for 
Thomas Kglestield at the Brazen Serpent in 
St. Paul's Church-vard, 1052/ Each is de- 
scribed as a tragi-comedy. In neither does 
the language show any trace of its authors 
foreign origin. According to his own ac- 
count 'The Just General ' was his first lite- 
rary effort. Neither piece was acted. 'The 
Just General' is dedicated to the Marquis of 
Northampton and his wife Isabella, and has, 
I y way of prohvue. a dialogue between cha- 
racters called * Prologue * and » Critick.' * The 
Loyal L overs' is defaced by much coarseness. 
Hugh Peters is furiouslv denounced under 
the name of" Sodome.* Manuche's metrical 
method? are curious. In the ■ Loval Lovers ' 
there :s some prose, but the rest of that play 
ar.vl the wh^le of the *Ju?t General'* are 
written in an eccentrically irregular form of 
blank verse, which is rhythmical and not 
metrical, and is barely distinguishable from 



proae. A tliird printed play, a tragedy, called 
*Tb* Boat aid,* whioh was published anony- 
It also in 1W52, has been assigned tra- 
I iliat theory of 
hip iaacoopted by Charles Lamb, who 
quotation (ran it iu his 'Specimenr

swill pari, of ' The Bastard ' is in prose, the 
rest U in bla.uk rane, which is of a far more 
regular kind than is to be met with in 
Mannchu'a undoubted work. 

Uiihop Percy found, about 1770, nine 
manuscript fiiny- other than those already 
named in the Murquia of Northampton s 
at Castle Asllby, the greater cumber 
hick he attributed on reasonable grounds

Bete, are all in the same hand-

and fourth, ' The Mandrake' (a comedy in

as heir of the kingdom, reserving the rights 
of any children who might thereafter be born 
to the king, and of any posthumous child w!m 
might be born to his son Alexander. On 
10 "March 1S80 Alexander III was killed, 
and on 11 April the estates appointed six 
recent* to govern for the infant quean. 
Edward I obtained a bill of diapenmtion 
from HonoriusIV iu May 1287, thai bis suns 
and daughters might marry within the pro- 
hibited degrees, and iu May 1 '263 sent am- 
bassadors to Nicolas IV to obtain the p"p'A 
consent to the marriage of h is son Ed ward and 
Margaret. Eric, who was largely indebted to 
the English lung, seat three auibassadors to 
England in September, us from himself and 
Margaret, to request Edward to secure the 
rights of the queen. At Edward's instance 
four commissioners were sent by the regents 
of Scotland to meet them and three com- 
missioners appointed by himself at Salis- 
bury, where on 6 Nov" it was agreed that. 
before 1 Nov. next following Eric should 
send Margaret either to England or Scot- 
land free from uoy matrimonial engagement; 
Edward promised that if Scotland was iu a 
settled state lie would ■am] her thither nam 
■jving ii promise Irnm the Scots 
that they would not give her in marriage 
except as ho should ordain and with her 
father's consent. The hill of dispensation 
for the marriage of the young Edward aud 
Margaret was obtained a few days later. 

Tidings of the proposed marriage having 
maenad Scotland, the estates of that king- 
dom at a meeting at Brighara in March 
1290 wrote to Eiiwurd warmly approving 
his design, aud to Eric urging him to send 
his daughter to England speedily. By the 
articles of Margaret's marriage treaty, 
arranged on 11 July, I'd ward promised that 
the kingdom of .Scotland should remain 
separate and independent, saving his righta 
in the marches and elsewhere. He requisi- 
tioaeil a ship at Yarmouth to fetch Margaret, 
— i caused it to be litted out and victualled 
Matthew da Colurnbers, his butler. The 
p was manned by forty seamen, and as Eric

ill, and that it was then generally believed 
that she had died on her voyage at^ one of 
the Orkneys. The report was true. Nothing 
is known of the circumstances of her death 
or burial. About ten years later a young 
woman came to Norway from Germany de- 
claring herself to be Margaret, Eric's daugh- 
ter. She said that she had been kidnapped at 
the Orkneys by a woman of high rank, 
Ingebiorg, the wife of Thore Hakonsson, 
and had been sold by her. Many believed 
her story. The king, Hakon V, who had 
succeeded his brother Eric, caused her to be 
tried, and she was burnt alive at Bergen in 
1301. Her cruel death excited much com- 
passion; she was believed by many to have 
been Eric's daughter, and was for a time 
reverenced at Bergen as a saint.

MARKS, HENRY STACY (1829-1898), 
artist, the youngest of four children, was 
born on 13 Sept. 1829 in Great Portland 
Street, West, and baptised in All Souls', 
Langham Place. His father, Isaac Daniel 
Marks, after practising for a time as a solicitor 
in Bloomsbury, took to his father's business 
of a coach-builder in Langham Place. The 
artist's father was a devoted student of 
Shakespeare, which accounts for the subjects 
of some of his earliest paintings. The firm, 
Marks & Co., prospered at first, and it was 
understood that Henry should carry it on. 
His talent for drawing was shown very 
early, and when he leu school he studied 
heraldry, so that he might be able to paint 
the crests and coats of arms on carriage doors 
and panels. Sufficient employment of this 
kind was quickly found for him in his father's 
business, but at the same time he attended 
evening classes at the well-known art school 
in Newman Street of James Mathews Leigh 
[q. v.] In 1851, having 1 failed in the previous 
year, he obtained admission to the Academy 
schools, but continued his studies with 
Lei^h. A picture called ' Hamlet, Horatio, 
Osnc/ painted in 1851, was hung in the 
Portland Gallery with Rossetti's 'Annun- 
ciation.' (Hatherlev, Leigh's successor, sat 
for the Hamlet.) *The possessor of much 
dry humour, and a good comic actor, Marks 
was deservedly popular and never wanted 



friends among artists. The closest in those 
early days were Philip Hermogenes Calde- 
ron, Mr. Val Prinsep, Mr. W. W. Ouless, 
Mr. G. A. Storey, and Mr. Alfred Parsons. 

In January 1852 he stayed for five months 
in Paris with Calderon. He studied first 
with M. Picot, pupil of David, and after- 
wards in the Ecole des Beaux-Arts. In his 
absence his father's firm failed, and from 
that time forward he had to depend solely 
on his own exertions. 

In 1853 he exhibited for the first time at 
the Royal Academy. His work was a half- 
length of 4 Dogberry/ ' With many other 
students,' Marks wrote, ' I was much influ- 
enced by the pre-Raphaelite school, and that 
influence was very evident in the picture.' 
It was placed next to Holman Hunt's 
' Strayed Sheep/ had the advantage of being 
very well hung, and found a purchaser. 
Henceforth Marks was a frequent exhibitor 
at the Royal Academy, and he soon found a 

merous admirer in Charles Edward Mudie 
q. v.], the founder of Mudie's Library. 

efore 1860 Mudie bought two of his most 
important paintings, * Toothache in the Mid- 
dle Ages' (1856), and 'Dogberry's Charge 
to the Watch' (1869). To the same period 
belonged the ' Gravedigger's Riddle,' which 
he also sold. Next in point of interest 
came the * Franciscan Sculptor's Model,' a 
very humorous subject : the matter in hand 
a gargoyle; the model a country bumpkin, 
with features burlesqued to convey the idea 
of spouting. In 1860 Mudie invited Marks 
to accompany him to Belgium, and in 1863 
he repeated the visit with his friends Yeames 
and Hodgson. In the * Jester's Text/ 
painted in 1862, there are traces of Flemish 
influence. 

In order to supplement his resources Marks 
did much besides painting pictures. He prac- 
tised drawing on wood, contributed cuts to a 
paper called ' The Home Circle/ and illus- 
trated some books. He also taught drawing 
for a short time, was largely emploved by 
the firm of Clayton & Bell, the makers of 
stained glass, and did decorative work of all 
sorts. lie designed the proscenium both for 
the Gaiety Theatre, London, and the Prince's 
Theatre, Manchester. The merit of his 
varied work attracted Ruskin's attention, 
and letters from Ruskin show how sincere 
was his appreciation of Marks's work. The 
studies in natural history, in which Marks 
in course of time specialised, particularly 
appealed to Ruskin, who saw in Marksa 
animals characteristics not unlike those 
which he discerned in Turner and Bewick. 
Marks all his life was a close observer of 
the ways of birds, and his excellent draw-

MARSHALL. AKTIU'U MILNES 
(iS.'ii* lS'.W), naturalist, born at Birming- 
ham on 8 June 1S.VJ, was the third son of 
William 1\ Marshall, for many years secre- 
tary of the Institution of Civil Engineers 
and himself an enthusiastic naturalist. In 
l*<70 f w hile still :it school. he graduated H.A. 
in thi« London Tniversitv, and in the fol- 
lowing year entered St. John's College, Cam- 
bridge, to read for the natural science tripos. 
At that time the M*hool of biology was just 
uri-iiiir. Francis Balfour [q. v.jhnd given it 
a great impetus, and Marshall was one of the 
lirst to take advantage of this change. In 
1S7-I he came out senior in his tripos, and 
lifter graduating B.A. was appointed in the 
early part of lS7o by the Cambridge Uni- 
versity to their table at the new zoological 
station at Naples. In the summer of the 



same year Marshall returned to Cambridge, 
and during the October term he joined Bal- 
four in giving a course of lecturer and labo- 
ratory work in zoology. 

Marshall's next step was to qualify him- 
self for a medical career. In 1*77 tie won 
an open science scholarship at St. Bartholo- 
mew s hospital, and in the same year he 
passed the M.B. examination at Cambridge, 
obtained the London degree of D.Sc.. and 
was elected to a fellowship at St. John's Col- 
lege. These successes were followed by his 
appointment, in 1879, at the early age of 
twenty-seven, to the newly established pro- 
fessorship of zoology at Owens College, 
Manchester, and Marshall soon became 
known for his wonderful skill in teaching 
and his talent for organisation. His insight 
into what had to be done — whether it were 
a research on some zoological problem or 
the reconstruction of a department of study 
— was only equalled by the rapid and skil- 
ful way in which he accomplished the end 
in view. 

In zoological science Marshall's name is 
intimately connected with important dis- 
covery in embryology. At the time of his 
appointment to the chair at Owens College 
he was already known as the author of im- 
portant memoirs on the origin and develop- 
ment of the nervous system in the higher 
animals; and after his election Marshall 
continued, both by his own contributions 
and in conjunction with his pupils, to influ- 
ence the work and views of fellow-natural- 
ists. Between 1878 and 1882 Marshall pub- 
lished ' The Development of the Cranial Nerves 




1881 (in conjunction with W. Baldwin 
Spencer) ; i On the Head-cavities and as- 
sociated Nerves of Elasmobranchs,' 1881. 
These papers appeared" in the 'Quarterly 
Journal of Microscopical Science,' and in 
1^8^ Marshall published a memoir on 'The 
Segmental Value of the Cranial Nerves ' in 
the 'Journal of Anatomy and Physiology/ 
The importance and originality of these solid 
contributions to knowledge were widely re- 
cognised, and, together with his later re- 
searches upon the anatomy of Pennatnlid 
corals, they form Marshall's most important 
contributions to zoology. 

Marshall's lasting work, however, was his 
development of zoological teaching and his 
organisation of the courses of biological study 
at the Victoria University. As a teacher 
Marshall excelled. He was clear, accurate, 
enthusiastic, and keenly alive to the diffi- 
culties of those who approach zoological

MARSHALL, WILLIAM CALDER 

(1813-1894), sculptor, born at Gilmour 
Place, Edinburgh, on 18 March 1813, was 
eldest son of William Marshall, goldsmith, 
and Annie Calder, his wife. Educated at 
the high school and university, he com- 
menced his art studies at the Trustees' Aca- 



nndCUoucester; and Longfellow, in reference , demy in 1830, and four years later went to 
to the continual Hitting from one cathedral I London, where he worked under Sir Francis 



lown to another, called her ' Queen of 
Summer, templo-haunting Martlet.' There 
were three sons and four daughters of the 
marriage. She finally settled at Clifton, 
and began to write from a desire to amuse 
and instruct young people. Her first story, 
4 1 1 appy Days at Fernbank/ was pub- 
lislied in 18(51. Between that date and her 
death she wrote over two hundred stories. 
This enormous production was stimulated 
by heavy losses in 1878, when the failure of 
the West of England bank not only swept 
away her husband's income and position, but 
involved him as a shareholder in certain 



Legatt Chantrey [q. v.] and Edward Hodges

Rome, and in 1839 he settled permanently 
in London. In 1835, two vears after he had 
exhibited first in the Royal Scottish Academy,

was flag-captain at Sheerneas, and from 1849 
to 1852 was commodore in command of the 
Lisbon squadron. On 2H May 18.53 he was 

fromoted to tbe rank of rear-admiral. From 
668 till hie promotion to be vice-admiral 
on 13 Feb. 185«, he was superintendent of 
Portsmouth dockyard, and in 1859 he waa 
one of the lords of the admiralty. In 1860 
he was appointed to the command of the 
Mediterranean station, with bis flag in tho 
Marlborough. He held this for three years, 
and in that time effected a reform almost 
amounting to a revolution in the methods 
of nava! discipline. Many of tbe ships were 
manned by ' bounty ' men and were in a 
state bordering on mutiny. Even the flag- 
ship's crew was far from being n good one. 
But by tact, by care, by unremitting atten- 
tion, and by judicious severity he brought, 
the fleet into that admirable order which ia 
still referred to in the navy as one of the 
glories of tho past. When the commander- 
in-chief gave an order, he not only meant it 
to be obeyed but saw that it was obeyed, 
and the insistence was not always agreeable 
to the respective captains and commanders. 
He was thus by no means generally loved 
by officers of the higher ranks; but if not 
loved, he was feared, and tbe work was 
done. On 14 Nov. 1868 Martin was made 
an admiral ; on the death of his cousin, 
Sir Henry Martin, third baronet, he suc- 
ceeded to the baronetcy on 4 Dec. 1863; 
and from 18(50 to lyt!9 was commander-in- 
chief at Plymouth. In April 1870 he waa 
put on tbe retired list in accordnnrv with 
the scheme brought out by Hugh Culling 
Eardley Childers [q. v. Suppl.l On 24 May 
1873 he wasmade a G.C.B.,and in September 
1878 he was appointed rear-admiral of the 
United Kingdom. During his later years he 
resided principally at Upton Grey, near 
Winehfield.und there ha died on 'Ji March 
1895. 

Martin was twice married : first, in 1826, 
to Anne Best, daughter of the first Lord 
Wynford ; she died in 1830, having had two 
bods who died young, and two daughters. 
Secondly, to Sophia Elizabeth, daughter of 
Robert Hurt of Wirksworth, by whom he 
hod issue, besides five daughters, one son, 
Richard Byam Martin, who succeeded to the 
baronetcy. In 1879 Martin published a small 
pamphlet, ' Cyprus as a Naval Station and

MARTINEAU, JAMES (1805-1900), 
unitarian divine, youngest son and seventh 
child of Thomas Martineau (d. 21 June 
1826), camlet and bombazine manufacturer, 
by his wife Elizabeth (d. 26 Aug. 1848, 
aged 78), eldest daughter of Robert Rankin, 
sugar refiner, of Newcastle-on-Tyne, was 
born in Magdalen Street, Norwich, on 
21 April 1805. His father, of Huguenot 
lineage, had a maternal descent from John 
Meadows or Meadowe [q. v.], the ejected 
puritan, which connected him with the 
family of John Taylor (1694-1761) [q. v.], 
the hehrnist (Taylor, Suffolk Bartholo- 
means, 1840). His mother was a woman of 
great force of character and 'quickness of 
feeling ' ( Martineau's letter in Daily News, 
30 Doc. 1881). His eldest brother, "Thomas 
Martineau, M.D. (tf. 3 June 1824, aged 29), 
was at the time of his early death reckoned 
the ablest of the family ; but the personal 
charm of James was marked in boyhood. In 
1815 he entered the Norwich grammar 
school, of which Edward Valpy [q. v.] be- 
came high master in that year. Among his 
school fellows were (Sir) James Brooke [q. v.], 
raja of Sarawak, and George (Henry) jBor- 
row [q. v.] In after life Borrow would not 
meet Martineau, having been hoisted on his 
baek to receive a well-earned birching {Life 
ofK P. Cobbe, 1894, ii. 117). Martineau, 
whose taste was for mathematics, did not 
proceed to the highest form, but was well 
grounded in classics, and on his eightieth 
birthday wrote some very good Latin verses 
in reply to his old friend Thomas Horn- 
blower Gill, the hvmn- writer (Inquirer, 
20 Jan. 1900, p. 12).* He was not * physi- 
cally robust ,' and 'the tyranny of a large 
public school ' did not suit him (letter in 
lUiihf News, ut sup.) At the suggestion of 
His sister, Harriet Martineau [o. v.J, he was 
sent (1819) to the boarding-school of Lant 
I 'nrpenter [q. v.] at. Bristol; to Carpenters 
influence in the discipline of character he 
pays tho highest tributes (Memoir* of Lant 




was apprenticed to Samuel Fox at Derby, 
with a view to becoming a civil engineer ; 
he boarded with Edward Higginson [see 
under Higginson, Edward], unitarian mini- 



ster at Derby, whose eldest daughter he 
afterwards married. The purely mechanical 
work of the machine-room did not satisfy 
him. The premature death (31 Jan. 1822, 
aged 29) 01 Henry Turner, unitarian mini- 
ster at ISottingham [son of William Turner, 
1761-1859; see under Turner, William, 
1714-1794], who had married (1819) Mar- 
tineau's cousin, Catharine Jtfankin (d. 1 May 
1894, aged 97), produced his c conversion ' 
(Proceedings in connection with his retire- 
ment, 1885, p. 28), and decided him for the 
ministry. 

In September 1822 he entered Manchester 
College, York, as a divinity student under 
Charles Wellbeloved [q. v.] Classics and 
history were taught by John Kenrick [q. v.], 
a scholar of distinction. Philosophy iell to 
William Turner (1788-1863) [see under 
Turner, William, 1714-1794], who taught 
the Hartleyan determinism, then in vogue 
with unitarians, but felt its difficulties 
{Christian Reformer, 1854, p. 136). The 
first York student to adopt the libertarian 
view was William Mountford (1815-1885), 
author of ' Euthanasy ' (1850), who broke 
with the Hartleyan philosophy while at 
York (1833-8). Martineau gained at York 
the highest honours (Christian Life, 23 June 
1900, p. 302) ; his successful oration in 1825 
bore the characteristic title 'The Necessity 
of cultivating the Imagination as a Regu- 
lator of the Devotional Feelings/ Ilis 
fathers death (1826) left on the family a 
burden of undischarged liabilities, all of 
which were paid in full. His mother's 
anxiety for his health, injured by ' intempe- 
rate study ' (Kenrick), led her to propose 
his removal to Gottingen ; Kenrick tnought 
the Gottingen system of lecturing for a ses- 
sion on * one evangelist, one prophet,' inferior 
to Wellbeloved's plan of going through the 
Old or New Testament in a vear (unpub- 
lished letter of Kenrick, 16 April 1826). 
Leaving York in 1827 he preached (4 July) 
one of the annual sermons of the Eastern 
Unitarian Association at Halesworth, Suf- 
folk, the other preacher being Michael 
Maurice, father of (John) Frederick Denison 
Maurice [q. v.] 

In 1827 he became, for a year, assistant 
and virtually locum tenens in Lant Carpen- 
ter s school at Bristol. Next year he was 
called to Dublin as co-pastor (assistant and 
successor) to his aged kinsman, Philip Tay- 
lor [see under Tatlor, John, 1694-1761], 
and colleague with Joseph Hutton (d. 7 Fefi. 
1856, aged 90), grandfather of Richard Holt 
Hutton [q. v. Suppl.1, in the congregation

Martineau 



(1st ser. 1843, l'2mo; 2nd ser. 1847, 12mo; 
often reprinted), unsurpassed for beauty and 
charm by his later writings, and realising 
his ideal that a sermon should be a ' lyric 
utterance. In a remarkable sermon, 'The 
Bible and the Child ' (July 1845, reprinted, 
Essays, ut sup. iv. 389), he first distinctly 
broke with the biblical conservatism of his 
denomination. Pending the removal of his 
congregation to a more modern structure, 
he was set free from 16 July 1848 till the 
opening (18 Oct. 1849) of the new church in 
Hope Street, his pastoral duties being un- 
dertaken by Joseph Henry Hutton (1822- 
1899), elder brother of It. II. Hutton; one 
of the few occasions on which the latter 
occupied a pulpit was at Paradise Street 
during this interval. 

Martineau spent the fifteen months with 
his family in Germany, taking a winter's 
study at Berlin. It. 11. Hutton, who had 
been his pupil in Manchester, read Plato 
and Hegel with hiin (Proceedings, ut sup. 
p. 38). His studies were mainly directed 
by Trendelenburg. He regarded this break 
ns a 'second education/ and 'a new intel- 
lectual birth/ involving the complete ' sur- 
render of determinism ' ( Types, ut sup. 
p. xiii). His earlier standpoint had been 
determinist and utilitarian (cf. his five arti- 
cles on Bent ham's ' Deontology/ Christian 
Reformer, March December, i835, p. 18/5 
so.) He wrote for the 'I-iondon Review' 
(1835) and for the ' ljondon and Westmin- 
ster Review ' from the amalgamation (1830) 
till January 1851. From 1838 he wrote for 
the ' Christian Teacher/ 1 hen edited by J. II. 
Thom, whom he joined, with John James 
Taylor [q. v.] and Charles Wieksteed (1810- 
1885), in editing the ' IVospective Review ' 
( 1 845-54), of which John Kentish [q. v.] said 
that its title must have been suggested by 
' the Irish member of the firm/ while John 
Gooch Robberds [q. v.], alluding to its motto 
4 Respice, A spice, Wospice/ described it as 
1 a magazine of allspice.' To this quarterly, 
and to its successor the 'National Review' 
(1855-1864), edited bv Martineau, R. II. 
Hutton, and Walter llagehot, he contri- 
buted some of his best critical work; later 
he wrote occasionally for the 'Theological 
Review/edited byCharles Beard r q.v.Suppl/| 
His drastic treatment (' Mesmeric Atheism' 
in Prospective, March 1851) of ' Letters on 
the Laws of Man's Nature and Develop- 
ment' (January 1851), bv Henry George 
Atkinson and itarriet Martineau (who edited 
the volume), was never forgiven by the latter. 
This masterpiece of satire, coming after a 
coolness of some years' standing, due to a 
refusal to destroy his sister's letters to him- 



self, produced an alienation which Marti- 
neau made fruitless efforts to remove (cf. his 
letters in Daily News, 30 Dec. 1884, 2 and 
6 Jan. 1885). 

For five years after the removal (1853) of 
Manchester New College to University Hall,. 
Gordon Square, London, Martineau tra- 
velled up to town every week in the session 
to deliver his lectures, till in 1857 he left 
Liverpool to share with Tayler the theolo- 
gical teaching of the college, as professor of 
mental, moral, and religious philosophy. 
This arrangement was not effected without 
strenuous protest (led by Robert Brook 
Aspland [q. v.], who resigned the secretary- 
ship, and joined by Martineau's brothers-in- 
law, Samuel Bache [q. v.] and Edward 
Higginson [q. v.1) against confining the 
teaching to one school of thought. He re- 
turned to the pulpit in 1859, becoming col- 
league (20 Feb.) with Tayler in the charge* 
of Little Portland Street chapel, left vacant 
by the death of Edward Tagart [q v.J ; from 
1860 he was in sole charge. Oi his London 
ministry there are sketches by Frances 
Power Cobbe (Life, 1894, ii. 145 ; Inquirer, 
20 Jan. 1900, p. 11). From 1858 to 1868 he 
was a trustee of Dr. Williams's founda- 
tions. In his letter (6 Aug. 1859) to Simon 
Frederick Macdonald (1822-1862) on 'the 
unitarian position,' followed by a second 
letter ' Church-Life ? or Sect-Life ? ' (14 Oct. 
1859), ' in reply to the critics of the first ' 
(both reprinted in Essays, ut sup. ii. 371), he 
pleaded for restricting unitarian profession 
to individuals and societies, leaving congre- 
gations unpledged to distinctive doctrine. 

At midsummer 1866 John Hoppus [q. v.] 
vacated the chair of mental philosophy ana 
logic in University College, London. Mar- 
tineau's candidature was unsuccessful, 
mainly through the opposition of George 
Grote |q. v.], who raised the anti-clerical 
cry. In protest against this limitation, 
Augustus de Morgan [a. v.] resigned the 
mathematical chair, and William Ballantyne 
Hodgson [q. v.] resigned his seat on the 
college council. Meanwhile Martineau was 
busy with denominational controversies, 
issuing in the formation of a 'Free Christian 
union/ which celebrated its first anniversary 
1 June 1869) with sermons by Athanase 
oquerel fils and Charles Kegan Paul, and 
lasted a couple of years. He was a member 
of the ' Metaphysical Society ' (2 June 1869- 
12 May 1880), which owed its inception to 
Tennyson. In 1869 he became principal of 
Manchester New College, and in 1872, under 
medical advice, he gave up preaching ; his 
friends presented him with inscribed plate 
and 5,8001. In the same year he received

the divine foreknowledge of contingen 
but as in bis view all the lines of action, 
between which c&oioa lies, lead to the same 
goal, free-will 'only varying the track' (ii, 
279), the resull seems indisl iiiguinhuhle from 
fatalism. In 1**S he introduced at Leeds a 
com pre he ii site plan of nganintoon and sus- 
tentation for the unitarian body, under the 
character of ' English preshyterians.' The 
scheme, somewhat resembling that of James 
Yates (17*0-1871)[q.v.], was not adopted, 
though certain of its surest ions have borne 
fruit. On the formation (14 May 1889) of 
a ' provincial assembly ' by London uni- 
tarians, Martineau resisted (he proposal of 
Robert Spears [q. v. Suppl.] to make the 
term 'Christian' a part of its title. The 
latatt poUM of his theological teaching 
must be sought in 'The Seat of Authority

and some defects of memory. Within a

courtly grace. His spoken addresses were 
simpler in style than most of his literary 
works, which, when richly wrought, re- 
minded his critics of a kaleidoscope (R. B. 
Aspland's phrase ; see also Life of F. P. Cobbe, 
ut sup. p. 146). The delivery of his sermons 
was vivid and even dramatic, though with- 
out action ; his lectures were mechanically 
dictated. Both sermons and lectures were 
written in Doddridge's shorthand. His poli- 
tics were of the old whig school ; he was 
against disestablishment, desiring a compre- 
hensive national church; he took the side 
of the southern states in the American war ; 
in Irish politics he was strongly averse to 
home rule ; he was opposed to free educa- 
tion and advocated a common religious teach- 
ing in board schools. An outside estimate 
of his services to speculative theology, by 
P. T. Forsyth, D.D., is in the ' London Quar- 
terly/ April 1900, p. 214 (cf. H. H. Hutton 
in Proceedings, ut sup. pp. 36-40). To fix 
the ultimate value of his contributions to 
philosophy no attempt can be made here ; as 
an intellectual and moral force, he impressed 
himself on his generation both by his 
writings and by his personality. 

He died at 35 Gordon Square on 11 Jan. 
1900 in his ninetv-fifth year, and was buried 
at Highpate cemetery on 16 Jan. He mar- 
ried (18 Dec. 1*28) 'Helm (d. 9 Nov. 1*77, 
aged 73), eldest daughter of Edward Higgin- 
son, and hud issue three 1*0113 and five 
daughters, of whom one son and three 
daughters suivived him. His portrait was 
painted by C. Agar (1846, engraved 1847) ;

not a verv successful likeness (cf. Life of 
F. P. Cohbe, 1894, ii. 94); by Mr. Alfred 
Emslio (1*88, reproduced in photogravure). 
A seated statue by Mr. II. R. Hope Tinker 
(1898) is in tin 1 library of Manchester College, 
Oxford ; and t here are at least two earlier 
busts executed during his Liverpool minis- 
try, and a terra-cotta bust (1877) by James 
Mull ins. 

His chief publications are enumerated 
above. To these may be added, besides 
many sin pie sermons and addresses: 
1. * Jlome Pray its, with Two Services for 
Public Worship,* 1*91, 12mo (the services 
first published 1*02). 2. 'Faith . . .Self- 
Surrender,' 1>H7, 12nu> 1 tour sermons). 
Three collections of his pupers were pub- 
lished in America : ' Miscellanies/ Boston,

as * Essays, Reviews, and Addresses,' 1890-1, 
4 vols. 8vo. He prefixed a valuable intro- 
duction to E. P. Hall's translation of Bonet- 
Maury's ' Early Sources of Unitarian Chris- 
tianity/ 1884, and edited, with introduction, 
second editions of works by J. J. Tayler, and 
posthumous sermons by J. H. Thorn. Two 
original hymns are in his collection of 1840, 
another is in his collection of 1873. His 
' Religion as affected by modern Materialism ' 
(1874) was translated into German by Dr. 
Adolf Sydow in 1878 ; four of his sermons 
were translated into Dutch, ' Gedachten/ 
Leyden, 1893, 8vo. 

Russell Martineau (1831-1898), orien- 
talist, eldest son of the above, waa born in 
Dublin on 18 Jan. 1831. Educated at Heidel- 
berg, University College, London, and Ber- 
lin, he graduated B.A. London, 1860, M.A. 
(classics) London, 1854. Having acted as 
domestic tutor, he was appointed (1857) on 
the staff of the British Museum library, and 
rose by successive promotions to the poet of 
assistant-keeper (lo84), which he held till 
superannuated in 1896. His department 
(though oriental studies were his forte) was 
early printing ; he improved the collection 
of Luther 8 works (first editions), catalogued 
that, section, and also the article 'Bible.' 
In 1857 he also became, on Ewald's recom- 
mendation, lecturer on Hebrew language 
and literature in Manchester New College, 
London, was promoted to be professor in 
1860, and resigned in 1874. His all-round 
scholarship was of exceptional thoroughness, 
and he excelled as a painstaking teacher. He 
was a Hibbert trustee, and a trustee of Dr. 
Williams's foundations. His health suffered 
from an epileptic tendency. He died at 
5 Eldon Road, Hampstead, on 14 Dec. 1898. 
He married (1861) trances Bailey, but had 
no issue. He published: 1. ' A Short Dis-

and edited the translation of a section of 
Ewald's * History of Israel/ 1867.2 vols. 8vo;

Mendelssohn and L'url Maria < 
Weber, ne was the godson of tin- Latter, 
and received his name Mai from the leading 
character in the ' Freischiitz-,' which had 
been finished just, before his birth. For a 
time he seriously contemplated Inking up 

from doing so by Mendelssohn. The last 
Are years of his school life lie spent at 
Leipzig, living in the family of Dr. C'orus, 
an old friend of his father, and continuing 
ilia education at the 'Nicolai-Scbule' there. 
He had decided to adhere to the -tu.lv of 
the classical languages ; but in order to 
qualify for a small bursary from Anhalt- 
Dessau be found he would have to pass his 
examination of maturity (* Abiturienteu- 
examen '), not at Leipzig, but at Zerbst, a 
small town in that state. For this purpose 
he was obliged to acquire a considerable 
knowledge of mathematics and other non- 
classical subjects in an incredibly short 
time; nevertheless he succeeded in rtwhilg his 
examination with distinction. He accor- 
dingly entered the university of Leipzig in 
the spring of 1841. There he attended no 
fewer than ten courses of lectures, on the 
average, during each term on the most varied 
subjects, including the classical ■ 
Professors Haupt, Hermann, Becker, besides 
others on old German, Hebrew, Arabic, 
psychology, and anthropology. He was, 
however, soon persuaded by Professor Her- 
mann Broakhaua, the lirst occupant of tat)

of these studies was his translation of the 
now well-known collection of Sanskrit 
fables, the ' Hitopadesa,' which he published 
when only twenty years of age (Leipzig, 1 844). 

He graduated Ph.D. on 1 Sept. 1843, 
when not yet twenty, but continued his 
studies at Leipzig for another term. Then, 
in the spring of 1844, he went to Berlin. 
Here he attended, among others, the lectures 
of Franz Bopp, the celebrated founder of the 
science of comparative philology, and those 
of Schelling, the eminent philosopher. To 
the early influence of the former may be 
traced his studies in the subject which he 
represented in the university of Oxford for 
thirty- two years ; to the teachings of the 
latter was doubtless largely due that interest 
in philosophy which he maintained to the 
end of his life. 

In March 1845 he migrated to Paris, where 
he came under the influence of Eugene Bur- 
nouf, eminent not only as a Sanskrit ist, but 
also as the first Zend scholar of his day. One 
of his fellow-students at Paris was the great 
German orientalist, Rudolf Roth, the founder 
of Vedic philology; another was the distin- 
guished classical Sanskrit scholar, Dr. Theo- 
dore Ooldstiicker. At Burnoufs suggestion 
young Max Miiller set about collecting mate- 
rials for an editio princeps of the ' Uigveda,' 
the most important of the sacred books of the 
Brahmans, and the oldest literary monument 
of the Aryan race, lie accordingly began 
copying and collating manuscripts of the text 
of that work, as well as the commentary of 
Sayana, the great fourteenth-century Vedic 
scholar. All this time he was entirely de- 
tendent on his own exertions for a living, 
nnving a hard struggle to maintain himself 
by copying manuscripts and assisting scho- 
lars in other ways. 

In pursuance of his enterprise he came 
over to England in June 1-S40, provided 
with an introduction to the Prussian 
minister in London, Baron Bunsen. who 
subsequently became his intimate friend. 
Receiving a recommendation to the East 
India Company from him and from Horace 
1 layman \\ ilson ~q. v.", he was commissioned 
by the board of directors to brine out at their 
expense a complete edition of the • Kurveda* 
with S ; iv ana's commentary. Having, in 
company with Bun sen. visited Oxford in 
June IS47 for the meeting «'f the British 
Association, at which he delivered an ad- 
dress on Bengali and its relation to the 
Art an language*, he returned to London. 
Early in IMS he went back to Paris for the 
p it rpo*e of col U t i w g man a sen pts. S udder, iy 
the re\olution broke out. when the young 
orientalist, fearinc for the *afetv of tht? 



precious manuscripts in his keeping, hur- 
riedly returned to London, where he, ac- 
companied by Bunsen, was the first to re- 
port to Lord Palmerston the news that 
Louis Philippe had fled from the French 
capital. 

As the first volume (published in 1849) 
of his edition of the ' Kigveda ' was being 
printed at the university press, he found it 
necessary to migrate to Oxford. There he 
settled in May 1848 and spent the rest of his 
i life. In 1850 he was appointed deputy Tay- 
j lorian professor of modern European lan- 
| guages, and in the following year was, at the 
suggestion of Dean Gaisford, made an honorary 
ALA. and a member of Christ Church. On 
succeeding to the full professorship in 1864 
he received the full degree of M. A. by decree 
of convocation. As Taylorian professor he 
lectured chiefly on German and French, in- 
cluding courses on middle high German and 
on the structure of the Romance languages. 
He was made a curator of the Bodleian 
library in 1856, holding that office till 1863; 
re-elected in 1881, he retired in 1894. In 
1 1858 he was elected to a life fellowship at 
All Souls' College. 

In 1859 he married Georgians Adelaide, 
daughter of Mr. Riversdale Grenfell, who 
already included among his brothers-in-law 
1 J. A. "Froude, Charles Kingsley, and Lord 
Wolverton. In the same year he published 
his important * History of Ancient Sanskrit 
Literature,' which, dealing with the Vedic 
period only, contained much valuable re- 
search in literary chronology, based on an 
extensive knowledge of works at that time 
accessible in manuscript only. 

In May 1800 Horace Hayman Wilson, 
professor of Sanskrit at Oxford, died. Max 
Miiller, whose claims were very strong on 
the score of both ability and achievement, 
became a candidate for the vacant chair. 
He was opposed by (Sir) Monier Monier- 
Williams q. v. Suppl.\ an old member of 
Balliol and University colleges, who had 
been professor of Sanskrit at the East India 
College at Haileybury till it was closed in 
1SV*. The election being in the hands of 
convocation — a body consisting of all masters 
of arts who keep their names on the books 
oi the university — came to turn on the po- 
litical and religious opinions of the candi- 
dates rather than on their merits as Sanskrit 
scholars. Party feeling ran high. His broad 
theological views, as well as the fact of his 
being a foreigner, told against Max Miiller, 
especially in the eyes of the country clergy, 
who came up to Oxford in large numbers to 
record their votes. The election took place 
. on 7 lVc. 1^60. when Monier- Williams won

logy, delivering two series of lectures 
m of language at the Royal In- 
1861 and 1863. These lectures 
raised him to the rank of the standard 
on philology in the estimation of 
i public. Though much of what 
is contained in them is now out of date, 
there enn be no doubt that they not only 
for the first time aroused general interest iu

valuable stimulating influence on the work of

Mai Muller was not only the introducer 
of comparative philology into England; he 
also became a pioneer in this country of the 
science of comparative mythology founded 
by Adalbert Kuan with W epoch-making 
work, ' Die Herabkunft des Feuers,' pub- 
lished in 1849. Beginning with his eatty 
on 'Comparative Mythology,' which ap- 
peared in 1856, he wrote a number of Otiw 
Kpers on mythological subjects, concluding 
i labours in this domain with a large 
work in 1897. His mythological method, 
based on linguistic equations, baa hardly 
any adherents at the present day. Far mast 
of his identifications, as of the Greek Erlnyus 
with the Sanskrit Saraiiyii*, have been re- 
jected owing to the more stringent applica- 
tion of phonetic laws which now prevails in 
comparative philology. Nor does his theory 
of mythology being a ' disease of lan- 
guage ' any longer find support among 
scholars. Nevertheless his writings have 

Iiroved valuable in this field also by stimu- 
ating mythological investigations even be- 
yond the range of the Aryan family of lan- 
guages.

his work on the comparative study of reli- 
gions, which was far more important and 
enduring. Here, too, he was a pioneer ; 
and the literary activity of the last thirty 
years of his life was largely devoted to this 
subject. He began with four lectures on tbe 
' Science of Religion ' at the Roval Institu- 
tion in 1*70. These were followed by a 
lecture on * Missions,' which dealt with the 
religions of the world, and was delivered 
in Westminster Abbey at the invitation 
of Dean Stanley in D'ecember 1873. He 
further led off the annual series of Hibbert 
lectures with a course on ' The Origin and 
Growth of Religion.' delivered in the ehnpter- 
house of Westminster Abbey in 1878. Sub- 
sequently he discussed four different aspects 
of religion as Gilford lecturer before the 
universltv of Glasgow during the years 1888 
to 1892. 

Of even more far-reaching influence than 
all these lectures on religion waa the great 
enterprise which Mux Miiller initiated in 
lS"o,when he relinquished the active .lories 
of the chair of comparative philology. Tins 
was the publication by the Oxford Cniver- 
sirv 1'resi, under his editorship, of the 
' Sacred Book* of the East,' a series of F.og- 
lish tnaiUtiona,bf leading scholars, of im- 
portant non-Christian oriental works of a 
religious character. This undertaking lm»

Max Miiller'sworld-widefam* waa largely 
due to his literary gifts and the extensive 
range of hi* writings, as well as to his great 
abiiitr, industry, and ambition. But it was 
l!y enhanced by a combination of 
;*it'= such ascan rarely fall to the 
lot of an) scholar. When lie began bis

Tliii* there whs a great opening in four 
highly important branches of learning j but. 
no one could have taken adequate advantage 
of them nil unless he had been, like Blax 
Miiller, one of the most talented and versa- 
tile scholars of the nineteenth century. 
Though much in his works and methods 
may already be superceded, the great stimu- 
lating inlluence his writings have exercised 
in many fields will give Inni a atrong claim 
to the gratitude of posterity. 

Scholar and voluminous writer though he 
was, Max Miiller was at the same time quite 
a man of the world. Familial frnin his 
earliest days with court life on a small scale 
at Dessau, he was, when quite a young man, 
a frequent visitor at the Prussian embassy in 
London, By Baron Bunsen lie was intro- 
duced to the late prince consort, and so 
came to be well known to Queen Victoria 
and the royal family, lie was also personally 
acquainted with several of the crowned 
heads of Europe, such as the Emperor Fre- 
derick, the present German Emperor, the 
King of Sweden, the King of Koumiuiia, and 
the Sultan of Turkey. He knew most of 
the loading men of the day, foreigner* aa 
well as Englishmen, and entertained many 
of them at Oxford. His house was a place 
of pilgrimage to all Indians visiting Eng- 
land ; for, owing to bis ' Rigveda ' and his 
writings on Indian philosophy nud religion, 
he was far better known in India, though ho 
never visited that country, than any other 
European scholar lias ever been. 

On account of his social qualities Max 
Miiller was much in request as president of 
■oaietiea and congresses. Thus be was the 
first president of the English Goethe Sn iet v. 
and in that capacity delivered bis inaugural 
addreas on ' Carry le and Goethe ' in 1886. 
He was also president of tbt! International 
Congress of Orientalists, held in London in 
18!.l.', mid look a prominent pnrl in most of 
the s>-tii's of oriental congresses which began 



learning. He was one of the knights of the 
Prussian order ' Pour le merite,' a knight of 
the Corona d T Italia, and u privy councillor 
in this country. He received the Northern 
Star (first class) from the King of Sweden, 
and subsequently the grand cordon, and 
waa decorated with the orders of the French

MAXWELL, Sib WILLIAM ED- 
WARD (1846-1897), governor of the Gold 
Coast, was born in 1846. 

His father, Sir Petbb Benson Maxwell 
(1817-1893), chief justice of the Straits 
Settlements, born at Cheltenham in January 
1817, was the fourth son of Peter Benson 
Maxwell of Birdstown, co. Donegal. He 
was educated at Paris and at Trinity College, 
Dublin, where he graduated B.A. in 1839. 
He entered the Inner Temple on 14 Nov. 
1838, removed to the Middle Temple on 
1(5 Nov. 1840, and was called to the bar on 
19 Nov. 1841. He was recorder of Penang 
from February 1856 to 1866, and recorder 
of Singapore from 27 July 1866 to 1871. 
From 1867 to 1871 he was chief justice of 
the Straits Settlements, and in 1883 and 
1884 he was employed in reorganising the 
judicial tribunals of Egypt. He was 
knighted at Buckingham Palace on 30 Jan. 
1856, and died in France at Grasse, in the 
department of Alpes-Maritimes, on 14 Jan. 
1893. He married, in July 1842, Frances 
Dorothea, only daughter of Francis Synge 
of Glanmore Castle, co. Wicklow. He 
was the author of two legal works of some 
importance: 1. i An Introduction to the 
Duties of Police Magistrates in the Settle- 
ment of Prince of Wales Island, Singapore, 
and Malacca/ Penang, 1866, 8vo. 2. * On 
the Interpretation of Statutes/ London, 
1875, 8vo ; 2nd edit. 1883 ( Times, 18 Jan. 
1893 ; Boase, Modern Biogr. 1897 ; Foster, 
Men at the Bar, 1885 ; Foster, Baronetage 
and Knightage). 

His younger son, William Edward, en- 
tered llepton in 1860, and was employed 
from 1865 to 1869 in the supreme court at 
Penang and Singapore. In 1867 he quali- 
fied as an advocate at the local bar, and in 
September 1869 he was appointed a police 
magistrate and commissioner of the court 
of requests at Penang. In February 1870 
lie was placed in the same offices in Malacca, 
in August 1871 at Singapore, and in 1872 
in Province Wellesley. In May 1874 he 
was nominated a temporary judge of the 
supreme court of Penang. In September 
ho was appointed assistant government 
agent for Province Wellesley, and in No- 
vember 1875 he accompanied, as deputy 
commissioner, the Larut field force, which 
punished the murderers of James Wheeler 



Woodford Birch, the British resident at 
Perak. For his services he was mentioned 
in the despatches and received a medaL. 
In February 1878 he became assistant 
resident in Perak and a member of the 
state council. In 1881 he was called to the 
bar by the Society of the Inner Temple, and 
in the following year he was commissioned to 
visit the Australian colonies and report on 
the Torrens land registration system [sea 
Torbens, Sir Robert Richard]. On re- 
turning to the Straits Settlements he became 
commissioner of land titles, and in 1883 
was gazetted a member of the executive and 
legislative councils. In 1884 he was em- 
ployed by the foreign office on a mission to 
the west coast of Atchin to obtain the 
release of the survivors of the British ship 
Nisero, who had been in captivity for ten 
months. He was successful in his task, 
received the thanks of government, and was 
created C.M.G. From 1884 to 1889 he was 
acting resident councillor at Penang, and in 
1889 British resident at Selangor. In 1892 
he was nominated colonial secretary of the 
Straits Settlements, and from September 
1893 till January 1895 he was acting 
governor. In March 1 895 he was nominated 
governor of the Gold Coast. He found the 
colony on the brink of a war with the 
Ashantis, who made frequent slave raids, 
and refused to pay the balance of the war 
indemnity due to the British government. 
On 17 Jan. 1898 an expedition under Sir 
Francis Scott entered Kumassi without 
resistance, and made prisoner the Ashanti 
king, Prempeh. Maxwell, who was nomi- 
nated K.C.M.G. in 1896, visited England in 
the summer, and addressed large meetings 
at Liverpool and Manchester on the future 
of the Gold Coast and Ashanti, returning 
to the Gold Coast in October. He died at 
sea off Grand Canary on 10 Dec. 1897. In 
1870 he married Lilias, daughter of James 
Aberigh-Mackay, chaplain in the Indian 
service.

played unusual abilities, and rose by rapid 
steps to the highest permanent position at 
the East India House. In 1824 he was 
appointed auditor of Indian accounts. 
While in this position he gave important 
evidence in 1830 before a parliamentary 
committee vindicating the company's con- 
duct of its China trade from the attack 
of William Huskissou [q. v.], and again in 
1832 before another committee on Indian 
affairs in regard to the accounts of the 
company (Thornton, Hut. of British Em-

until the termination of the company's 
existence as a governing body in 1858. 
After his retirement from the service of the

Mends 



1825 he entered the Royal Naval College at 
Portsmouth, and on passing out in Decem- 
ber 1826 was shortly afterwards appointed 
to the Thetis, a 46-gun frigate, going out to 
the South American station. He was still in 
the Thetis when she was wrecked on Cape 
Frio on 5 Dec. 1830. It was Mends's watch 
at the time the ship struck, but as the night 
was dark and thick and it was raining 
heavily, he was held guiltless, the blame 
falling entirely on the captain and master. 
Mends was considered to have behaved very 
well in a position extremely difficult for one 
so young and inexperienced, and several of 
the members of the court offered to take 
him with them. After passing his exami- 
nation he joined the Actaxm in the Medi- 
terranean, which in 1832 was at Constanti- 
nople when a Russian army of upwards of 
twenty thousand men was there, consequent 
on the terrible defeat of the Turks by Ibrahim 
Pasha at Konieh. The intervention of the 
western powers demanded the withdrawal ot 
this force, and Mends was deeply interested 
in watching its embarkation, making careful 
notes of their manner and methods of em- 
barking the cavalry and guns. Men, horses, 
and guns, with all their stores and baggage, 
were got on board within twelve hours, and 
Mends treasured up the experience for future 
use. In the summer of 1834 the Actaeon 
returned to England and was paid off; and 
in January 1835 Mends was appointed to the 
Pique with Captain Henry John Rous [q. v.] 
In July the ship was sent out to Canada, 
and on the homeward voyage, on 22 Sept., 
struck heavily on a reef off the coast of 
Labrador. After several anxious hours she 
was got off, and, though she was much 
damaged and was leaking badly, and her 
main and mizen masts were badly sprung, 
Rous determined to proceed. Five days 
later her rudder, which had also been in- 
jured, was carried away, and the ship left 
nelpless in a heavy westerly gale. With 
admirable seamanship she was steered for 
several days by means of a weighted hemp 
cable towed astern and controlled by a spar 
lashed across the ship's stern: it was not till 
6 Oct. that they were able to ship a jury 
rudder ; and on the 13th thev anchored at 
St. Helen's after a voyage that has no parallel 
in the annals of the nineteenth century. 
Mends then learnt that he had been pro- 
moted to the rank of lieutenant on 11 Aug. 
In December he was sent out to join the 
Vernon at Malta. A vear later ne was 
moved into the Caledonia and then to the 
Rodney, from which, in July 1838, he went 
to be flag-lieutenant of Sir John Louis, the 
second in command on the station and super- 



intendent of Malta dockyard. lie continued 
with Louis, sometimes afloat, but mostly at 
Malta, till July 1843 ; afterwards, from No- 
vember 1843 he was in the Fox frigate with 
Sir Henry Blackwood on the coast of Ire* 
land and in the East Indies till, on 2 Jan. 
1847, he received the news of his promotion, 
on 9 Nov. 1 846, to be commander. In January 
1848 he was appointed to the Vanguard, 
in which, a couple of months later, he had 
the misfortune to lose some of the fingers of 
his left hand, which was carried into a block 
and badly crushed. It was this, more than 
the loss of the fingers, which caused trouble; 
and for years afterwards he suffered from 
severe attacks of neuralgia. The Vanguard 
went home and was paid off in March 1 849 ; 
and in July 1850 Mends was appointed to 
the Vengeance, again with Blackwood, who, 
however, died after a short illness at Ports- 
mouth on 7 Jan. 1851, and was succeeded 
by Lord Edward Russell fa. v.] Towards 
the end of the summer the Vengeance went 
to the Mediterranean, btit came home in 
December 1852, when, on 10 Dec., Mends 
was advanced to post rank in acknowledg- 
ment of the excellent order the ship was in. 
In October 1853 he was selected by Sir 
Edmund (afterwards Lord) Lyons [q. v.] to 
be his flag-captain in the Mediterranean, if 
Captain symonds, then in the Arethusa, 
should prefer to remain in the frigate. If 
Symonds should prefer to join Lyons, it 
was understood that Mends should have the 
Arethusa [see Symonds, Sib Thomas Mat- 
thew Charles]. Mends accordingly took the 
Agamemnon out and joined the fleet in the 
Sea of Marmora on Christmas Eve, when, as 
previously arranged, he took command of the 
Arethusa. In her he took a particularly 
brilliant part in the bombardment of Odessa 
on 22 April 1854 ; ' we stood in twice,' Mends 
wrote, ' tacked close off the Mole and en- 
paged the works on it in reverse . . . pouring 
in a destructive fire as we went about.' He 
was promptly recalled by the commander-in- 
chief, who seems to have considered that he 
was needlessly risking the ship. * I expected 
a reprimand when I went on board the ad- 
miral to report, but the enthusiasm of the 
fleet and the cheers given to us as we passed 
along the lines mollified the chief, and I was 
simply told not to go in again/ The French 
officers who had witnessed the manoeuvre 
called on Mends to compliment him on it ; 
and many years afterwards a French writer 
in the * Revue des Deux Mondes' referred 
to it as a brilliant tour de force. In June 
Lyons and Symonds had found that they did 
not get on well together, and it was proposed 
to Mends to re-exchange into the Agamem-

to the Russian war, being the strictly syn- 
chronous opinions of a niau who, from his 
officii) I position and his personal relatione 
with Sir Edmund (aftermuda Lord) Lyons, 
hud very good opportunities of knowing what 
was being done or not done ; at the same 
time the factor of Lyons 's personality is to 
be allowed for.

MERCIER, IIONOIlfi (1840-1894), 
premier of Quebec, was born on 15 Oct. 
1840 at Ste,-A.thanase in Lower Canada, 
where his father had been an early set I ler. 
Educated at the Jesuit College, Mmii ival, 
he entered the office of Messrs. Laframboiso 
& Papiueau and began the study of law in 
lfti.50. In 18K be abandoned law for a time 
and undertook the editorship of 'I.e Courier' 
to support the Macdonald-Sicottc ministry. 
He took an active part in founding the /"irlt 
national of that time, and vigorously op- 
posed confederation. When ii seemed in- 
evitable be finished his course in law and 
was called to the Montreal bar in 1867. 
Practising first at Ste.-llyftdnthe, and later 
in Montreal, he attained a fair standing in 
his profession. 

Merrier was elected to the Hon-i'l Com- 
mons in 1872 as opposition member for 
Rouville in the province of Quebec. He 
was not a candidate at the following elec- 
tions, and, being unsuccessful in the cam- 
paign of 1878, ret ired from dominion politic*. 
Thereupon ( Si ri Henrj < ' list live Joly, premier 
of Quebec, offered the post, of solicit or-geM- 
rnl to Mercier, who aceepu-d the office and 
held it till the cabinet resigned in October 
1879. Mr. Joly retired from tin- I 
in 1883, whereupon Me.rcier became liberal

and conservative power, he formed an alli- 
ance with the ultramontanes who were then 
rising into power. He recurred also to his 
project of a so-called parti national, a party 
French-Canadian in race and catholic in reli- 
gion, but open equally to liberals and con- 
servatives. The year 1885 gave him his op- 
portunity, because the north-west rebellion 
then broke out and the execution of Louis 
Kiel [q. v.] followed. Mercier turned to 
political account the French-Canadian racial 
sympathies for the half-breed leader and, 
forming a combination with (Sir) Charles 
Alphonse Pellet ier, a well-known conserva- 
tive, swept the constituencies in the elections 
of 1886, and became premier of the province 
on 29 Jan. 1887. He continued in that office 
for five years. Among his useful measures 
may be ranked the consolidation of the local 
statutes and the establishment of an agri- 
cultural department. 

On 21 Oct. 1887 he called a conference of 
the premiers of the several provinces at 
Quebec to discuss amendments to the con- 
stitution. His endeavours to extend the 
boundaries of the province to Hudson's Bay 
were carried to a successful issue after his 
death— in 1896. 

His financial measures took a wide range. 
He failed to convert part of the local debt, 
which then amounted to the gross sum of 
£ 19,500,000, by substituting four in the 
place of the subscription rate of five per 
cent, interest. He laid increased taxation 
on commercial transactions, persons, and 
corporations, and his measures for the purpose 
were confirmed. In 1888 he launched in 
l'aris a loan for £3,500,000 at four per cent., 
and another in 1891 for £4,000,000 at the 
siime rate. He was enthusiastically received 
in France in April 1891, and was decorated 
with the legion of honour. Passing thence 
to Home, the grand cross of Gregory the 
Great was bestowed on him for his services 
to the church. The king of the Belgians 
made him commander of the order of Leo- 
pold I. 

While he increased taxation and accumu- 
lated debt, his distributions to railways, 
colonisation purposes, public buildings, and 
improvements were liberal. But after the 
elections of 1890, when Mercier was again 
returned to power by a large majority, a 
spending fever seems to have taken hold of 
Mercier and many of his party. Then began 
what is called * la danse des millions. 1 It 
proceeded apace till the crash came at the 
end of 1891. 

Mercier never enjoyed the confidence 
of the episcopate and secular clergy. But, 
overbearing all opposition in the provincial 



contest, he resolved to attack the conserva- 
tive party of the dominion, and, entering 
warmly into the election to the dominion 
parliament of 1891, made a serious change 
in the Quebec delegation to Ottawa. In 
this he necessarily alienated many of his 
conservative allies. Further, investigations 
begun in the senate resulted in tracing to 
Mercier or his agents the sum of £100,000, 
part of £260,000 which the local house had 
voted to the Baie des Chaleurs railway. 
The money, it was alleged, was spent in the 
late elections. Thereupon the lieutenant- 
governor issued a royal commission to in- 
quire into the matter* (21 Sept. 1891), and 
evidence was taken which was confirmatory. 
Mercier sought to ignore the commission 
and its proceedings, taking his stand on con- 
stitutional grounds : that the proper body to 
investigate the charges was the legislature, 
not the commission, and that while he pos- 
sessed the confidence of the house he was 
entitled to the confidence of the lieutenant- 
governor. His opponents had used a simi- 
lar argument, when the lieutenant-gover- 
nor, Letellier de St. Just, dismissed the con- 
servative administration in 1878. In this 
instance it was of no avail. The ministry 
was dismissed, the De Boucherville cabinet 
was gazetted (December 1891), the house dis- 
solved, and on appeal to the electors Mercier 
and his following were hopelessly defeated. 
In 1892 an indictment was laid against 
him for conspiring to defraud the province, 
but the prosecution failed. The result was 
on the whole beneficial to Mercier, and the 
trial helped to re-establish him in public 
credit. He began to take an active part in 

Solitics once more, and on 3 April 1893 
elivered what is considered to be his best 
speech, before an immense audience at 
Sohmer Park, Montreal. It is published 
under the title of 'L'Avenir du Canada.' 
Mercier died on 30 Oct. 1894. On 29 May 
1866 he married Leopoldine Boivin of Stei- 
Hyacinthe, and, after her death, Virginie 
St.-Denis of the same place on 9 May 1871.

METFOED, WILLIAM ELLIS | 1824 
■ :.:,r. born on 4 Oct. 1824, was 
tide r son of William Metford, a physi- 
of Flook House, Taunton, bv his wife, 
5. Anderdon. He was educated at

standing. In 1807 1 1 1 - - felect committee found 
his form of explosive rirle bullet the ln-sl 
of those submitted to them, and in 1863 it 
was adopted bv government. In March 
lB»,how*Ter, it was declared obsolete in 
■ccowtiaw with the resolution nf the St. 
Petersburg convention against the einploy- 
.' Ii missiles in warfare. Met.fords 
chief distinction in rifle progress, however, 
is that he was the pioneer of the substitution 
of very shallow grooving and a hardened 
cylindrical bullet expanding into it, for deep 
grooving and bullets of soft lead. In 1MB 
bis. first match rifle appeared, having five 
shallow grooves and shooting a hardened 
bullet of special design (Patent No. 2488). 
In 1870 he embarked seriously on the pro- 
duction of a breech loud iug rim, paving the 
closest attention to every detail of the 
barrel and cartridge. Before long his first 
experimental breechloading rifles appeared, 
and at Wimbledon in 1871 two of them were 
of which the principal prize 



for military breechloading rides was won by 
Sir Henry St. John Hall'ord [q. i " 
whose acquaintance he had made i 



the Wimbledon meeting, and who hence- 
forth was his friend and assistant in his 
experiments. From 1877 the record of the 
Metford ritle w-as un unbroken succession of 
triumphs. Between that date nnd 1894 it 
failed only four times to win the Dulte of 
Cambridge's prize, while it took a prepon- 
derating share of other prizes. 

The advance in military small arms 
abroad, and especially the increased rapidity 
of loading, caused the appointment of a 
committee in February 1883 to deal with 
the question. Metford designed for them 
the detail of the -42 bore for the rifle pro- 
visionally issued for trial early in 1887, and 
on the adoption of the '90S "fl" 1 " rifle, 
known as the Lee-Lnlield, be cave much 
assistance in designing the barrel, chamber, 
and cartridge. 

In 18*8 the war-office committee on email 
arms selected as the pattern for British use 
a rifle which combined the Metford bore 
with the. b. .It-action and detachable magazine 
invented by the American, James P. Lao. 
This arm, known as the Lee-Met furd ride, 
'~ still in use.

MILLAIS, Sir JOHN EVERETT 
"ii, painter of history, genre, 
landscape, and portraits, and president of 
the Royal Academy, bora at Southampton 
on 8 June 18"29, was the youngest son of 
John William Millais, who lielonged to an 
old Norman family settled in Jersey for many 
generations, and Emily -Mary, daughter of 
John Kvamy, and the widow of Enoch 
Hodgkinson, bv whom the had two sons. 
The father (who died in 1870) wan noted 
in the island of Jersey for his good looks 
and charming manners, lie was also a good 
mit-iciun and n Inir artist, and held a com- 
"! the Jersey militia. He arrested 

Oxford who shot -it ih,- ijiiueti in 1840. Tins 
.Milliii-'i lived at I.eQuaihouse, just outside 
St. Heliers. before they removed to Southamp- 
ton, where Sir John and his elder brother 
William Henry (also an artist, and the 
author of 'The Game Birds of England') 
were born. The family returned to Jersey 
aoon after Millats's birth, and there he de- 
veloped u taste for natural history and 
A frame containing drawings 
done when only seven years old was ex- 
hibited at. the Royal Academy in the winter 
of 1898. He drew n portrait of his ma- 
ternal grandfather, John Kvamy, fishing, 
•when he was eight years old, and another 
of his father when he was eleven. He 
was sent to school, hut showed no inclination 
for study, and was expelled for biting his 
master's hand. Among the friends of the 
Millaises at Jersey were the family of the 
Lemprieres,one of whom (afterwards General 
Lempriere), the grandson of Philip Rooul 
Lenipriere, Seigneur of Iioselle Manor, was 
the model for the Huguenot in Milluis's 
famous picture of that name. In 1835 the 
family reruor>-il to Dinan in Brittany, where 
the child delighted the French military 
officers by his sketches. One of the colonel 
smoking a cigar, and another of the' tambour 
major' aire specially mentioned in his bio- 
graphy by his son. In 1837 the family once 
more returned to Jersey, where John received 

his first instruction in art from a Mr. Besael, 



the best drawing-master in tl 
soon confessed that he could 
pupil anything more, and in 1838 he came to 
London with an introduction to Sir Martin 
Areher Shee [q, v.], the president of the 
Royal Academv. On the way he sketched 
Mr. (afterwards Sir Joseph) Paxton fo. v.] 
asleep in the coach. Sir Martin told his 
parents that it was their plain duty to fit 
their son for the vocation for which nature 
had evidently intended him, and in the 
winter of 1838-9 he was seat to the well- 
known school of Henry Sass [q. v.] in 
Bloomsbury. In the same year he obtained 
a silver medal from the Society of Arts, 
and in 1840 became a student at the Royal 
Academy. Here he carried off every priie. 
1 lis lirst picture in oils was ' I.' lipid crowned 
with Flowers,' painted in 1841. In 1843 
he gained the first silver medal for drawing 
from the antique, und when seventeen the 
gold medal for an oil painting, ' The Young 
Men of Benjamin sci?mu thi'ir Brides.' 

Millais Ht ill retained hi- disinclination for 
ordinary studies, mid received nil his educa- 
tion (except in art) from his mother, who 
read to him continually. He wore his 
boyish cost time of goujfred tunic and wide 
falling collar till long past the usual age, 
and for this reason was called ' the child ' 
by his fellow-students at the academy— a 

name which Stuck to him long afterwards. 
He was toll and slim, high-spirited and 
indepcndcnl , though very delicute. He was 
fond of cricket and of fishing, and made 
many friends. As early as 1S40 he was 
asked to breakfast by Samuel lingers, and 
met Wordsworth, and iu IK4li he stayed 
with his half-brother, Henry Ilodgkinsim, 
at Oxford, and was introduced to Wyatt, 
the dealer in art, at whose house he fre- 
quently stayed as a guest during the next 
three years. On a window in the room he 
occupied he pointed in oils ' The Queen 
of Beauty' and 'The Victorious Knight.' 
Wyatt bought his picture of 'Cymon and 
Iphigenia' I now liclougiug io Mr. Stauden),

trait by Millais (exhibited in 18o0) of Wyatt 



of the Clarendon Press, with whom he be- 
came intimate, and Mr. Drury of Shotover 
Park. He earned money also, and from the 
age of sixteen defraved the greater part "f 
the household expenses in Gower Street, 
where he lived with his family. In 1845 he 
was engaged to p:iint small pieturesand back- 
grounds for a dealer named Ralph Thomas 
tor 100/. a year. lie recorded his delight

Millais 



at receiving his first cheque (still preserved) 
by endorsing it with a drawing of himself. 
T* hev fell out, and Millais threw his palette 
at Thomas, and so ended the connection for 
a while, but it was afterwards renewed 
(though not for long) at an increased salary 
of 150/. a year. 

In 1846 Millais exhibited at the Royal 
Academy for the first time. The subject of 
his picture was * Pizarro seizing the Inca of 
Peru.' This was followed in 1847 by 
♦Elgiva seized by the Soldiers of Odo/ 
John (known as Lester) Wallack, the actor 
[see under Wallack, James William, ad 
/fa.], who married Millais's sister, sat for 
Pizarro. In 1847 also he entered unsuccess- 
fully into the competition at Westminster 
Hall for the decoration of the houses of 
parliament, sending an oil picture of 'The 
Widow's Mite* (ten feet seven inches by 
fourteen feet three inches), since cut up. 
He did not exhibit at the academy in 1848. 

Down to this time his career had differed 
from those of other academy students only 
by its distinguished success, and his pictures 
had shown little if any divergence from the 
ordinary ideals and methods taught in the 
schools; but about the beginning of 1848 he ! 
and Mr. Ilolman Hunt, deeply conscious of | 
the lifeless condition into which British art j 
had fallen, determined to adopt a style of i 
absolute independence as to art dogma and j 
convention, which they called ' Pre-Raphael- j 
itism.' The next to join the movement was j 
Dante Gabriel Rossetti [q.v.], who at this i 
time was struggling with the technical diffi- 
culties of painting under the instruction of 
Ilolman Hunt, but was unknown to Millais. 
The three met together at the Millaises* house 
in Gower Street, where Millais showed them 
engravings from the frescoes in the Campo 
Santo at Pisa, and all agreed to * follow' them. 
The result was the formation of the celebrated 
4 Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood/ consisting of 
seven members. There has been much dis- 
pute as to what were the precise principles of 
the brotherhood ; but, according to Millais, 
'the Pre-Raphael ites had but one idea, to 
present on canvas what they saw in 
nature/ and to this idea he adhered from 
first to last. Another disputed point is the 
influence of Rossetti on Millais's earlier 
work. This was entirely denied by Millais 
himself; but it was probably greater than he 
knew, for Rossetti's picture of 'The Girl- 
hood of Mary Virgin ' was clearly the fore- 
runner of Millais's ' Christ in the House of 
his Parents/ and there was a spirit of poetical 
romance in Millais's work while their closest 
intercourse lasted (1848-52) which slowly 
faded away afterwards. The intense intel- 



lectual and spiritual influence of Rossetti on 
the brotherhood generally cannot be denied. 
He was the ruling spirit of their short-lived 
orpan, ' The Germ ' (2 parts, 1850), for which 
Millais made one or two sketches and an etch- 
ing and wrote a story, though none of them ap- 
peared. (A copy of the etching will be found in 
' British Contemporary Artists/) On the 
other hand Millais was very independent 
and impatient of control, and would not 
read the first volume of * Modern Painters' 
(1841), in which principles like those prac- 
tically followed by tne Pre-Raphaelite* 
were first recommended to young artists. 
It is also to be remembered that Rossetti 
was at this time a mere tyro in painting* 
whereas Millais was a trained artist, and 
that of -love of nature and skill in expressing 
it Millais could learn nothing from. Rossetti. 

At all events it is quite certain that Mr. 
Hoi man Hunt and Millais were most inti- 
mately associated in all their views and in 
their practice. They had worked together in 
complete sympathy from the days of their 
studentship, and they together started the 
new movement. The depth of the gulf 
between it and the old is clearly seen if we> 
compare the 'Pizarro' of 1846 with the 
' Isabella ' of 1849 — a banquet scene from 
Keats's poem of ' Isabella and the Pot of 
Basil ' founded on a story by Boccaccio. In- 
dus nearly all the characters were painted 
from his relatives and friends. Among 
them were three at least of the brotherhood, 
the two Ros8ettis, Dante and William, and 
Mr. F. G. Stephens, and it contains all the 
characteristics of ' Pre-Raphaelite ' work — 
most minute imitation of nature down to the 
smallest detail, all persons and objects studied 
directly from the originals, and disregard of 
composition, generalisation, and all conven- 
tion. The tale was told with dramatic power, 
and the expression of the heads, with the ex- 
ception of the lovesick Lorenzo, was excellent. 
Millais never again painted a composition of 
so many figures, or of greater patience and 
success in execution. The picture was bought 
by Mr. Windus, was for a time in the posses- 
sion of Thomas Woolner [q.v.], the sculptor 
(and one of the brethren), and is now in the* 
gallery of the corporation of Liverpool. It 
was exhibited in 1849. 

Millais's next important picture was a sup- 
posed scene in Christ's childhood, treated as an 
incident in the ordinary life of a carpenter*? 
family. It is usually "known as 'Tne Car- 
penter's Shop/ or 'Christ in the House of 
Ii i 8 Parents ; ' but in the catalogue of the 
Royal Academy it had, in place of a title, a 

Suotation from Zechariah xiii. 6. The boy

,'uii'l its minute finish of detail

nearly all quarters, including ' Blackwood,' 
and even from Charles Dickens in ' House- 
Liid Words,' who afterwards owned hia 
■aittake. Another picture of this year, [650, 
'Ferdinand lured by Ariel, 'met with scarcely 
better reception from the critics, and was 
ivCumhI by the dealer for whom it was 
jwintpd. Nevertheless, 'The Carpenter's

itle difference in this respect is 
to be noted in his work of the next few years. 
The most notable of these were: 'The Re-

man's Daughter,' from a poem by Pat more, 
' i range' (all

Ruskin, who wu afterwards to become his 

u il'e. During these yearn Millais wa 
to spend much time in the country to paint 
his backgrounds, lodging at farmhouses and 
cottages, in company with his brother, Mr. 
Holman Hunt, and Charles Allston Collins. 
Having settled upon t.lie piece of landscape 
he meant to introduce, he would paint it 
day by day with exact, fidelity and almost 
microscopic minuteness. Such backgrounds, 
not only in his pictures, hut those of Holman 
Hunt and their followers, form a very dis- 
tinct feature of the strict 'Pre-Raphaelite' 
period. For literal truth to nature's own 
colours and rendering of intricate dotail, 
those by Millais stand almost alone, espe- 
cially the river sceue in ' Ophelia.' 

All this time Millais was fighting hard for 
his new principles of art, and suffered much 
from the antagonism of critics, dealers, and 
others, including many artists of the older 
school ; but he managed to sell his pictures 
in spite of all, and gradually achieved popu- 
larity also. With the exhibition of -The 
Huguenot 'the light may lie said to have been 
won, as far at least as the public were con- 
cerned. Its sentiment, its refinement of ex- 
pression, and thorough execution appealed to 
nearly si) who saw it. Rut Millais and the 
Pre-Raphaelite cause had many supporters 
and sympathisers, the most important ol whom 
was John Ruskin [q. v. ijnppl. J, who expressed 
his enthusiasm in tetters to the 'Times' and 
in hia pamphlet called ' Pre-Rnphaelitism ' 
(1851). Millais first met Ruskin in this year, 
and two years afterwards he was joined by 
Ruskin and his wife at. Wallington, the Tre- 
velyaus' house in Northumberland, and went 
to Scotland with them. He made several 
architectural designs for liuskin, and in 
1854 painted a portrait of him standing by 
the river Finla.es, which was bought by Sir 
Thomas Dyke Acland [<]. v. Suppl.] In the. 
autumn of 1853 lie took to hunting with 
John Leech [q. v.], and in November of the 
same year he was elected an associate of the 
Royal Academy. Uy this time the brother- 
hood, whose meetings had always been few 
and far between, had died a natural death, 
and Millais had soon to lose the companion- 
ship of Mr. Holman Hunt, who went to 
Syria in February 1854. In this year Mil- 
lais did not exhibit at the Royal Academy, 
but in 1855 he sent three pictures, including 
' The Rescue,' a so'ii.-. fV'un ii lire in a modern 
town house, with a frantic mother seizing 
her two children from the arms of a fireman. 
This was painted in honour of brave firemen, 
and was a new departure, for the scene was 
modem, and the conception was 
entirely his own. The mother was painted

in five days and a half, in December 18tU, 
and is one of the finest of his works. 
belongB to Mr. Val Prinsep, K.A. ' The 
Knight Errant ' is remarkable from the tine 
execution of a full-length life-site female 
figure, the only one lo be found in the 
artist's works. Of tbe others the most suc- 
cessful, perhaps, were ' The Evil One sowing 
Tares,' a version in oils of one of a fine 
series of designs for ' Tbe Parables of Our 
Lord,' published by Bradbury & Eva , 
Flood' (a child carried in its wooden cradle 
down the swollen streaml, and ' The Boy- 
hood of Raleigh, in which two boys (his 
own sons Everett and George) are listening 
to tbe strange tales of a sailor ret urned from 
the Spanish main. Tbe newest element in 
his work of this period was supplied from his 
own nursery, which afforded subjects for 
many very popular pictures, like ' My First 
Sermon,' -Mi ' Sleeping,' 

' Waking,' ' Sisters,' ' Tbe First Minuet,' and 
■Tbe Wolfs Den.' 

Portraits of other children were also 
among his greatest successes, like 'Leisure 
Hours,' the daughters of Sir John Pender 
with a bowl of goldfish, and 'Miss Xinn 
I^-hmrmn' (Lady Campbell). Most of his 
pictures were now single figures, with more 
or less sent iiuent. Like 'Stella ' and ' Vanessa,' 
•The Gambler's Wife,' 'The Widow's Mite,' 
and 'Swallow. Swallow' A mote important 
composition, ' Pilgrims to Si. i'mil

he was shooting with Sir William Harcourt 
near Inverary, and afterwards visited Flo- 
rence and Italy in company with Sir Wil- 
liam and his wife, and in 1868 he was 
shooting again with Sir William and with 
Sir Edwin Landseer, and went with Mr. 
Frith to Paris, where they made the ac- 
quaintance of Rosa Bonheur. 

* Chill October/ his first exhibited pure 
landscape, afterwards bought by Lord 
Armstrong, was at the academy in 1871, 
and was painted in the open air from a 
backwater of the Toy just below Kin- 
fauns, near Perth. It was followed by 
'Scotch Firs' and 'Winter Fuel/ painted 
in 1874, 'The Fringe of the Moor' (1875), 
' Over the Hills and Far Away' and 'The 
Sound of many Waters' (1876), all of 
which were equally remarkable for their 
truth to nature and fine execution, but they 
were without the pathetic sentiment of 
'Chill October.' It was to portrait and 
landscape that he devoted himself mainly 
after 1870, and to single figures of children 
and pretty girls under fancv titles like 
' Cherry Ripe/ ' Little Miss Muffet,' ' Cuc- 
koo/ 'Pomona/ 'Olivia/ and many more 
which were very popular in engravings 
and in coloured prints for the illustrated 
newspapers. None of these paintings were 
perhaps more beautiful or popular than 
'Sweetest ores were ever seen/ 'Caller 
llerrin'/ and 'Cinderella/ for which Miss 
J teat rice Buxton sat. Inspired by a stronger 
sentiment were 'The North- West Passage' 
<1«74), 'The Princes in the Tower' (1878), 
\ The Princess Elizabeth ' (1879), and two 
illustrations of Scott, 'EfUe Deans' and 
' The Master of Kavenswood/ painted for 
Messrs. Agnew in 1877 and 1878. 'The 
North- West Passage' represents a deter- 
mined old mariner (a portrait of Edward 
John Trelawny [q.v.]) in a room overlooking 
the sea and strewn with charts. He 
listens to a young woman who is reading 
some tale of Arctic exploration. The artist 
never painted a finer head than that of the 
sailor, and the execution throughout is so 
line that the picture is regarded by some as 
his masterpiece. ' A Yeoman of the Guard ' 
(1877), with his age-worn face and uniform 
of scarlet and gold, is as strong in character, 
and perhaps the artist's most splendid effort 
as a colourist. It was, however, as a por- 
trait painter that he added most to his great 
reputation during the last twenty-five 
years of his life. Among his most cele- 
brated sitters were the Marauises of Salis- 
bury. Hartington (Duke ot Devonshire), 
and Lome (Duke of Argyll), the Earls of 
Shaftesbury, Beaconsfield, and Rosebery, 



Lord Tennyson, W. E. Gladstone, John 
Bright, Sir Charles Russell (Lord Russell 
of Killowen), Cardinal Newman, George 
Grote, Sir William Sterndale Bennett, Sir 
James Paget, Sir Henry Thompson, Thomas 
Carlyle, Wilkie Collins, Sir Henry Irving, 
J. C. Hook, R.A., and Du Maurier, one of 
the most intimate of all his friends. All 
these portraits are lifelike and powerful, 
giving the very presence of the originals, 
and inspiring even their clothes with indi- 
viduality, lie was never more successful 
than in realising the grand head and keen 
expression of W. E. Gladstone, whom he 
painted in 1879, 1885, and 1890. He drew 
Charles Dickens after his death. He was on 
very friendly terms with Gladstone, Lord 
Beaconsfield, Lord Rosebery, and indeed with 
nearly all his sitters. 

Among his best portraits of ladies may be 
mentioned ' Hearts are Trumps ' (the tnree 
Misses Armstrong), Mrs. Coventry Patmore, 
Mrs. Bischoffsheim, Mrs. F. H. Myers, Mrs. 
Stibbard (his wife's sister), Mrs. Jopling, 
the Duchess of Westminster, and Lady * 
Campbell. To his portraits of children 
already mentioned may be added Miss Do- 
rothy TThorpe, Lady Peggy Primrose (after- 
wards Countess of Crewe), and the Princess 
Marie of Edinburgh, which belonged to Queen 
Victoria. 

In 1875 Millais took a trip to Holland 
with some of his wife's family, and was 
greatly impressed by the masterpieces of 
Rembrandt, Franz Hals, and Van der Heist. 
In 1878 Millais was represented at the Paris 
Exhibition by 'Chill October,' 'A Yeoman 
of the Guard,' ' Madam Bischoffsheim,' 
' Ilearts are Trumps,' and ' The Bride of 
Lammermoor,' which greatly increased his 
reputation in France, and he was made an 
officer of the legion of honour. In this 
year came the greatest sorrow of his life in 
the loss of his second son, George, who had 
nearly completed his twenty-first year. In 
1879 he left Cromwell Place for a house 
built for him at Palace Gate from the de- 
signs of Philip Charles Hardwick, where he 
remained till he died. In 1880 he painted 
his own portrait for the Uffizi Gallery at 
Florence. He still paid his annual visit to 
Scotland, and in 1881 took a house at 
Murthly, Little Dunkeld, Perthshire, with 
good fishing and shooting. At Murthly or 
its neighbourhood all his other landscapes 
were painted: 'Murthly Moss,' 'Murthly 
Water,' ' Dew-drenched Furze,' ' Lingering 
Autumn,' and others. In 1881 a small ex- 
hibition of his pictures was held by the Fine 
Art Society. On 16 July 1885, at Glad- 
stone's suggestion, he was created a baronet, 



long his other honours were honorary 
rsities of Onford (9 June

It is too early to fix precisely the position 
of Millais as an artist, but there is no doubt 
that he was nua of the greatest painters of 
the nineteenth century, and thut he did 
more than any other of his gcneraiion to 
infuse a new and healthy life into lirili'U 
art. There was nothing of the idealist or 
visionary in his designs, and he had not a 
great iixtavhial ion : but lie could paint what 
he saw with a force and a truth which Intva 
seldom been eice lied, and his intense love 
of nature and of his kind tilled his work 
with life and poetry. 

As a man Millais waa frank, manly, and 
genial, not over-refined, hut devoid of affec- 
tation. Though of no great intellectual 
power, ho had a strong fund of common 
aense, and, if not a great reader, was fond of 
poetry (especially Tenny-on find Keats), of 
the best fiction, and of books of travel, aud 
he could write graceful and humorous 
verses. In manner and appearance he re- 
sembled a country gentleman rather than 
an artist. Ho was devoted to his art, but 
not blind to the advantages of success and 
prosperity. Ho was the life of his own 
family, and regarded with affection by a 
very large and distinguished circle of ac- 
quaintance; but he did not cure for ordinary 
social gatherings, and preferred to spend his 
evenings at the Garricli Club, where he was 
sure to meet a number of congenial friends. 
In person he was very handsome, his face 
(which in his youth Rossetti described aa 
that ol an angel) retained great beauty 
throughout life, and his figure grew well- 
knit and strong. His fine presence and 
cheery voice made themselves felt wherever 
he went, and there were few who knew him 
well who would not echo the words of Sir 
George Reid, P.R.S.A., who wrote of him as 
' one of the kindest, noblest, most beautiful 
and lovable men lever knew or ever hope to 

Besides the portrait of Millais which was 
painted by himnelf for the Uliizi Gallery, 
there are portraits of him by John 1'hilip 
in 1841, by Mr. G. F. Watts, R.A., in 
1871, and by Sir Henry Thompson, ban., in 
1881. These, with sketches of him by his 
brother, W. H. Millais, John Leech, and 
others, are reproduced in J. G. Millais's ' Life 
and Letters' (!Mr,i|,

MILLIGAN, WILLIAM (1821-1898), ' 
Scottish divine, was horn at Edinburgh on 
1.") March 1S21, the eldest «^t" seven children ' 
of tin 1 liev. George Milligan and his wife, 
Janet Fraser. Hi? father, a lieentiate of! 
the ebureb of Scotland, was then engaged ' 
in teaching at Edinburgh, and Milligan 
was M*nt to the high school, where he was ! 
<lux of his cla-«. In lS.'W, when his father 
became minister of the Fifeshire parish of , 
Elie, he was transferred to the neighbouring . 
pari>h school of Kileonquhar, and thence , 
proei'i-ded in ls.'l"> to the university of St. ■ 
Andrews. Though only fourteen years of i 
aire, he earned from that day, by private 
teaching, as much as paid his class-fees, much 
to his parents' relief, for Elie was a ' small J 



living.' Graduating M.A. in 1889, and de- 
voting himself to the ministry, he took his 
divinity course partly at St. Andrews and 
partly at Edinburgh, and for a time he was 
tutor to the sons of Sir George Suttie of 
Prestongrange. During the disruption con- 
troversy of 1843 Milligan adhered to the 
church of Scotland. He wrote to his father 
that he was resolved to * remain in . . . and 
lend any aid he could to those who are ready 
to unite in building up, on principles agree- 
able to the word of God, the old church of 
Scotland.' He was at this time assistant 
to Robert Swan, minister at Abercrombie ; 
next year he was presented to the Fifeshire 
parish of Cameron and ordained. 

In 1845 his health gave cause for anxiety, 
and he obtained a leave of absence for a 
year, which he spent in Germany, studying 
at Halle. He mado the acquaintance, among 
others, of Neander, in whom he found a 
kindred spirit. Promoted in 1850 to the 
more important parish of Kilconquhar, he 
married, in 1859, Annie Mary, the daughter 
of David Macbeth Moir [q. v.] ; and in 1860 
he was appointed first professor of biblical 
criticism in the university of Aberdeen. He 
worked hard ; but his liberal politics and 
mild broad-church views were not congenial 
to many of his colleagues, and his amiability 
concealed from his students the real strength 
of his character. Nevertheless his power and 
influence grew, and in 1870 he joined the 
company formed for the revision of the Eng- 
lish New Testament. From that time on- 
ward ho was. a prolific writer, nis style, 
prolix at first, became pure and graceful, and 
in such works as those on the resurrection 
and ascension of Jesus Christ and on the 
Revelation of St. John he took a foremost 
place among British theologians. In the 
church courts, too, his rise was steady. In 
1872 he was sent, together with the Kev. J. 
Marshall Lang (now Principal Lang) as a 
representative from the general assembly of 
the church of Scotland to the assembly of 
the presbyterian church in the United 
States ; in 187o he was elected depute-clerk 
of the general assembly ; and in 1886 he suc- 
ceeded Principal John Tulloch [q. v.] as 
principal clerk. 

Already in 1882, partly in recognition of 
his work as a New Testament reviser, he 
had been elevated to the moderator's chair. 
His address on the occasion was notable 
for its declaration that, in any scheme for 
church reunion in Scotland, "the Scottish 
episcopalians must be considered ; while its 
enunciation of doctrine concerning the 
church called forth the warm approval of 
Canon Liddon [q. v.], who wrote and

Mills 



thanked him for it. Although in his earlier 
days his humanitarian feelings, and his en- 
thusiasm for liberty and progress, had allied 
him with those who were then called broad 
churchmen, Milligan did not have at any 
period of his career the slightest sympathy 
with the disregard for doctrine which has 
sometimes marked the members of that school. 
Ultimately he ranged himself with high 
churchmen, being, he declared, impelled to 
join them by increased study of the New 
Testament. His doctrine of the church he 

fathered for himself from the Epistle to the 
phesians, on which he had contributed an 
important article to the ninth edition of the 
'Encyclopaedia Britannica.' His views on 
the importance of dogma and on the sacra- 
ments ne learned, as he believed, from St. 
John, of whose writings he was a lifelong 
student and diligent expositor. This develop- 
ment of his opinions in no way limited his 
width of sympathy, nor did it interfere with 
the friendly intercourse, ecclesiastical as well 
as social, that he had been wont to hold 
with nonconformists — with Wesley ans like 
Dr. W. F. Moulton [q. v. Supnl.], or with 
independents like Principal Fairbairn. He 
had oeen a member for years of the Church 
Service Society. In 1892, when the Scottish 
Church Society was constituted ' to defend 
and advance catholic doctrine as set forth 
in the ancient creeds, and embodied in the 
standards of the church of Scotland, &c.,' 
he took an important part in its formation, 
and accepted office as its first president. 
The last letter he wrote from his death-bed 
was to the first conference of this society, 
then being held in Glasgow. A few days 
previously he had said that the greatest need 
of the church of Scotland was the restoration 
of a weekly celebration of the eucharist. 

Milligan was keenly interested in social 
and especially in educational questions. In 
1888 he went to Germany to inquire about 
technical education and continuation schools 
in that country ; and the next year he 
visited Sweden to see the working of the 
Gottenburg licensing system. In Aberdeen 
he was an active philanthropist ; and all 
over Scotland his services as a preacher 
were in much request. 

When on the eve of retiring from his 
chair at Aberdeen owing mainly to failing 
eyesight, Milligan was suddenly seized with 
illness which soon proved fatal. He died 
at Edinburgh on 11 Dec. 1893. His wife, by 
whom he left issue, survived him. He left 
unfinished a work on the Epistle to the 
Hebrews, and forbade the publication of the 
parts he had written ; some of his notes, 
nowever, have been used in a work on the 



same subject, since published by his eldest 
son, the Kev. George Milligan. 

There is a portrait of Milligan by Sir 
George Reid, P.R.S.A., at King's College, 
Old Aberdeen (one of the artist's happiest 
likenesses). In 1898 an altar-table, bearing 
an inscription from the pen of his friend 
and colleague, Principal Sir William Geddes 
[q. v. Suppl.], was erected to his memory in 
the College Chapel, Old Aberdeen. 

Milligan's literary productiveness began 
in 1855, when he contributed the first of a 
series of papers to Kitto's ' Journal of 
Sacred Literature.' In 1857 he addressed a 
' Letter to the Duke of Argyll on the Edu- 
cation Question.' * The Decalogue and the 
Lord's Day ' (1806) was evoked by the con- 
troversy stirred in Scotland bv a speech of 
Dr. Norman MacLeod's (1812-1872) [q. v.], 
as his 'Words of the New Testament' (1873) 
— written in conjunction with Dr. Roberts — 
belonged to the literature of New Testa- 
ment revision. In 1 878 appeared a volume on 
the • Higher Education of Women ; ' and the 
next year he contributed to the 'Encyclopaedia 
Britannica' his important article on the 
'Epistle to the Epnesians.' 'The Resur- 
rection of our Lord ' and his ' Commentary 
on St. John* (in conjunction with Dr. Moul- 
ton) (1882), his ' Commentary on the Revela- 
tion' (1883), his 'Discussions on the Apo- 
calypse ' (1883), his 'Baird Lectures on the 
Revelation of St. John' (1886), 'Elijah' 
(1887), 'The Resurrection of the Dead' 
(1890), 'The Ascension and Heavenly 
Priesthood of our Lord,' and his presidential 
address on the 'Aims of the Scottish Church 
Society* (1892), were all productions of his 
ripened powers. Besides these he contri- 
buted many articles to periodicals. His last 
article was a notice ' In Memoriam' of Dr. 
Hort, which appeared in the ' Expository 
Times' (1893).

MILLS, Sir CHARLES (182o-l«)5), 
first agent-general for the Capo Colon v, was 
born in 18*25 at Ischl, Hungary, unci edu- 
cated chiefly at Bonn. On 1 Feb. 18-1,3 he 
enlisted as a private in the O^th regiment, 
and went to China, where he very soon at- 
tracted some notice, was made staff clerk in 
the adjutant -general's office, and excused or- 
dinary duty. He seems to have readily mixed 
and become well known in the general so- 
ciety of the station, though nominally only 
• Corporal Mills.' When his regiment was 
ordered to India in 1848, he was offered a 
clerkship in the consular service, but pre-

ferred to go into active military service. He 
was accordingly with his regiment through 
the Punjab campaign, and was present in 1849 
at Chillianwallah, where he was wounded. 
He received the medal. On 6 June 1851 he 
received a commission as ensign in the 98th 
regiment, became adjutant on 17 June 1851, 
and on 22 Nov. 1854 was promoted lieutenant 
in the 50th foot. 

Mills, having returned home with his regi- 
ment, became, in 1855, brigade-major under 
General Woolridge, who was charged with 
the formation of a camp of instruction for the 
German legion at the Crimea, and went to 
the seat of war with the legion under Sir 
Henry Storks [q.v.] During this war he 
gained special credit for his share in sup- 
pressing an attempt at mutiny among some 
of the Turkish troops. He received the order 
of the Medjidie. 

At the close of the Crimean war, when 
the German legion was disbanded, it was 
proposed to make a military settlement of 
Germans on the eastern border of British 
KafTraria. Mills, who now left the army, was 
selected as officer in charge of the settle- 
ment ; he arrived at Cape Town in January 
1858, and became successively sheriff of King- 
williamsto wn and secret ary to the government 
of Kaffraria. He had brought out three thou- 
sand men, who prospered almost without 
exception; he has himself stated that for 
seven years he was their * guide, philosopher, 
and friend/ and looked upon this as the most 
successful work of his life, lie had intended 
writing an account of the settlement, but 
never did so. 

In 1H65, when Kaffraria was incorporated 
with the Cape Colony, Mills retired on a pen- 
sion. Subsequently", in 18(56, he was elected 
to represent kingwilliamstown in the parlia- 
ment of the Cape, where he supported the 
government, opposing the party which at 
that time demanded responsible government. 
Sir Philip Wodehouse [q. v. Suppl.], who 
was then governor, eventually persuaded 
him to resign political life and enter the 
colonial service, and in 1867 appointed him 
chief clerk for finance in the colonial secre- 
tary's office. In 1872 he became permanent 
under-secretary in the same office when self- 
government was conferred on the colony; 
in this capacity he rendered considerable 
service in organising the Cape civil service. 
In 1880 he was sent to London to arrange 
as to the adjustment of expenditure on the 
Zulu war. When in 1882 the Cape govern- 
ment decided to have an agent-general of 
their own in London, Mills was at once 
selected for the position, which he took up 
in October 1882. 



As agent-general Mills was a familiar 
and popular figure at all functions in which 
the colonies were interested. In 1886 he 
was executive commissioner for the Cape at 
the Colonial and Indian Exhibition. In 1887 
he was delegate for the Cape at the colonial 
conference. In 1894 he was one of the dele- 
gates of the Cape at the intercolonial con- 
ference at Ottawa, and this was his last 
special service. He died at 110 Victoria 
Street, London, on 31 March 1895, and was 
buried at Highgate cemetery. He had been 
made C.M.G. in 1878, K.C.M.G. in 1885, 
and C.B. in 1886. He was a governor of the 
Imperial Institute. 

Mills was in later years stoud and florid, 
very cheery in manner, and fond of society. 
He was always reckoned businesslike and 
capable ; at times working exceedingly hard, 
as when he stayed almost continuously in 
the colonial secretary's office for over three 
months in 1872. There are portraits of him 
in the colonial secretary's office, and in the 
Civil Service Club, at Cape Town.

MILNE, Sib ALEXANDER, first baro- 
net (1806-1890), admiral of the fleet, second 
eon of Sir David Milne [q.v.], was born on 
10 Nov. 180(5. In February 1817 he en- 
tered the Koyal Naval College, and in 1819 
first went afloat in the Leander, his fathers 
flagship on the North American station. He 
afterwards served in the Conway with Cap- 
tain Basil Hall [q. v.], in the Albion with 
Sir William iloste [q. v.], and in the 
Ganges, flagship of Sir Robert Waller 
Otway [q. vA on the South American 
station. In June 1827 he was appointed 
acting-lieutenant of the Cadmus brig on the 
Brazilian station, his commission being con- 
firmed on 8 Sept. In 1830 the brig returned 
to England, and Milne was promoted to the 
rank of commander, 25 Nov. In December 
1836 he commissioned the Snake sloop for 
service in the West Indies, where, in No- 
vember and December 1837, he captured two 
slavers, having on board an aggregate of 665 
slaves. He was promoted, 30 Jan. 1839, 
to be captain of the Crocodile, in which, 
and later on in the Cleopatra, he continued 
in the West Indies or on the coast of North 
America, and in charge of the Newfound- 
land fisheries, till November} 1841. From 
April 1842 to April 1845 he was his 
father's flag captain at Devonport ; and from 
October 1846 to December 1847 flag captain 
to Sir Charles Ogle at Portsmouth. For

MITCHELL, A LEX A NDERFERRIER 
(1S22-189VI), Scottish eccleeiutica] historian, 
horn at Brechin on 10 Sept. 1822, was son of 
David Mitchell, convener of local guilds, and 
bis wife Eliinhci li.dunc/htcr of .lames Ferrier 
of Broadmyre. After being educated at- 
lirccliio yrnraraar school, he proceeded in 
1837 to St. Mary's College, St, Andrews, 
winning an entrance bursary in classics. 
He graduated M.A. in 1841, and in 1H44 was 
licensed to nrench. After acting as assistant 
to the ministers at Meigle and Dundee, he 
was in 1847 ordained by Meigl.. umeuylo? 
to the charge of Dunnicheti. Adhering to 
the established church during the secession 
movement, ho became in 1848 a metnbet of 
the general assembly. Tn the aaine year, 
when only twenty-six, lie was appointed 
professor of Hebrew in St. Mary's College, 
and was one of the first to introduce into 
Scotland a scientific method of teaching 
Hebrew. As convener from 185B to 1875 
of the committee of the mission to the Jews, 
Mitchell did much to develop missions in 
the Levant, which he visited himself in 1857. 
His main interests lay. however, in Scottish 
I'ccb'sin.sticiil history, and in 1868 he suc- 
ceeded John Cook as professor of divinity 
and ecclesiastical history in Si, Marv's 
College. 

Mitchell held his chair for twenty-si x 
years, and during that period published ■ 
number of valuable works on Seottith 
ecclesiastical history. He was an active 
member of the Scottish Historical and Text 
Societies, and took a prominent part in the 
general councils of the Presbyterian Alliance, 
attending tbe meeting at Philadelphia in 
1880. Tn 1885 he was elected moderator of 
the church of Scotland, and the address be 
delivered at tbe close of tbo session was 
separately published (Edinburgh nnd Lon-

' End of Religious Controversy.' Admitted 
on 15 Jan. 1846 student at Lincoln's Inn, he 
was there called to the bar on 80 Jan. 1851, 
but preferred a scientific to a forensic career. 
He was member from 1849 of the Royal 
Institution, and fellow from 1858 of the 
Zoological Society, to whose * Proceedings ' he 
was for more than thirty years a frequent 
contributor. In 1862 he was appointed lec- 
turer on comparative anatomy in St. Mary's 
Hospital, London, and elected (20 March) 
fellow of the Linnean Society, of which he 
was secretary from 1874 to 1880, and was 
elected vice-president in 1892. In 1869 he 
was elected F.R.S. in recognition of the un- 
usual merits of his memoir ' On the Appen- 
dicular Skeleton of the Primates/ communi- 
cated through Professor Huxley in 1867 
(< Phil. Trans.' clvii. 299-430). Among 
others of his earlier scientific papers may be 
mentioned 'Notes on the Osteology of the 
Insectivora ' (' Journal of Anatomy and Phy- 
siology,' Cambridge and London, 1867-8, i. 
280-312, ii. 117-54 ; translated in 'Annates 
des Sciences Naturelles,' 5ieme sene, 'Zoo- 
logie,'tom.viii. 221-84, ix. 311-72); 'Appen- 
dicular Skeleton of Simla* ('Trans. Zool. 
Soc.' vol. vi., 1866) ; ' Notes on the Myology 
of Iguana Tuberculata ' (' Proc. Zool. Soc.' 
1867, pp. 766-97) ; ' Notes on the Myology 
of Menobranchus Lateralis' (ib. 1869, pp. 
450-66) ; ' On some Points in the Anatomy 
of Echidna Hystrix ' (' Trans. Linn. Soc.' vol. 
xxv. pt. iii. [1866], pp. 379-403) ; and ' On the 
Vertebrate Skeleton '( ib. vol. xxvii. pt. iii. 
[1871], pp. 369-92). Though greatly stimu- 
lated by Darwin, Mivart never became a 
Darwinian; and in 1871 freely criticised the 
great naturalist's hypothesis both in the 
' Quarterly Review ' (vol. cxxxi. p. 47) and 
in a substantive essay ' On the Genesis of 
Species ' (London, 8vo) ; an assertion of the 
right of private judgment which led to an 
estrangement from both Darwin and Huxley. 
Three subsequent works : 1. ' Lessons in 
Elementary Anatomy,' London, 1873, 8vo. 

2. ' Man and Apes,' London, 1873, 8vo. 

3. ' The Common Frog,' London, 1874, 8vo, 
established his reputation as a specialist. 
He was already known as an attractive lec- 
turer at the Zoological Gardens and the 
London Institution, and in 1874 he was ap- 
pointed professor of biology at the short- 
lived Roman catholic University College, 
Kensington. During the decade 1870-80 
he enriched the 'Transactions' of the 
Zoological Society (vols. viii. and x.) with 
several important papers, viz. : 1. ' On the 
Axial Skeleton of the Ostrich ; ' 2. ' On the 
Axial Skeleton of the StruthionidiB ; ' 8. ' On 
the Axial Skeleton of the Pelecanidee ; ' 



4. ' Notes on the Fins of Elasmobranchs ; with 
Considerations on the Nature and Homo- 
logues of Vertebrate Limbs.' To the ' En- 
cyclopaedia Britannica' (9th edit.) he con- 
tributed the articles ' Ape ' (reproduced in 
substance in Flower and Lydekker's ' Intro- 
duction to the Study of Mammals,' 1891), 
' Reptiles ' (anatomy), and ' Skeleton.' In 
1879 he was president of the biological sec- 
tion of the British Association at Sheffield, 
and delivered an address on Buffon, which 
was included in his ' Essays and Criticisms,' 
London, 1892, ii. 193. In 1881 appeared his 
elaborate monograph, 'The Cat: an Intro- 
duction to the Study of Back-boned Ani- 
mals, especially Mammals' (London, 8vo), 
which for fulness and accuracy of detail 
and lucidity of exposition is worthy to rank 
with Huxley's 'Crayfish/ Subsequent 
studies in the anatomy of the ^Eluroid, 
Arctoid, and Cynoid carnivora appeared in 
the ' Proceedings' of the Zoological Society 
1882, 1885, and 1890. His researches on 
the last group bore fruit in ' Dogs, Jackals, 
Wolves, and Foxes; a monograph of the 
Canidse,' London, 1890, 4to. Other papers 
in the 'Proceedings' of the same society 
(1895) laid the basis of his 'Monograph of 
the Lories, or Brush-tongued Parrots com- 
posing the Family Loridee,' London, 1896, 
4 to. Mivart received in 1876 the degree of 
Ph.D. from the pope, and in 1884 that of 
; M.D. from the university of Louvain, in 
I which he was professor of ' the philosophy 
j of natural history ' from 1890 to 1893. 
Despite his rejection of Darwinism, Mivart 
always professed himself an evolutionist. As 
such, however, he can be ranked with no 
school. He never wavered in maintaining an 
essential disparity between organic and inor- 
ganic matter, and between human reason and 
the highest faculties of the brutes. Natural 
selection he relegated to an extremely sub- 
ordinate place, and attributed the formation 
of specific characters to a principle of indi- 
viduation, which he postulated as the essence 
of life (see Essays and Criticisms, ii. 377-9, and 
| The Origin of Human Reason, London, 1889, 
' pp. 298-303). Evolution thus understood he 
| attempted by a theory of derivative creation 
I to reconcile with the catholic faith, between 
: which and modern thought he aspired to 
I play the part of interpreter (see his paper, 
' One Point in Controversy with the Agnos- 
tics,' in Essays on Religion and Literature, 
ed. Manning, 3rd ser. London, 1874, 8vo). 
In November 1874 he joined the Meta- 
physical Society, in which, as in the wider 
arena of the monthly reviews, he opposed a 
neo-scholastic realism to the prevalent ag- 
nosticism. In 1876 he collected his philo-

MOLTENO, Sir JOHN CHARLES 
[1814 1886), South African statesman, the 
sou of John Moltt'iw, deputy controller of 
the legacy olnce, Somerset House, and of 
Caroline Bower, liis wife, was born on 5 June 
1814 in his father's house in London. The 
family wns ul' Milanese extraction, but. had 
long been domiciled in Euj_duiid. Losing 
his father at an early age, be was educated 
at Ewell. and alter a short experience in the 
office of a citv sbipbroker he suited for South 
Africa in 1831 to take up duties in the public 
library at Cape Town. In 18H7, when twenty- 
three years of age, he stiirled a commercial 
businessof his own, and was lor the next ten 
years engaged in a spirited endeavour to open 
up ii. -iv innrlieN I'll' I'.l'iiii.il (ii'iidih''- ; lull n

quaintance with the life and characteristics 
of the frontier colonists, especially those of 
Dutch blood. 

lie took part as a burgher and com- 
mandant in the Kaffir war of 1846, and 
formed a strong- opinion of the unsuitabiiity 
of British troops and British regular officers 
for such warlore. The dictatorial tone 
adopted towards the colonist*, together with 
the incapacity displayed by the queen's 
officers, was a strong factor in determining 
his future attitude towards the intervention 
of the home government in military matters. 

In 1852 he returned to mercantile pur- 
suits, and founded the firm of Alport & Co., 
which he combined with a large banking 
business, and he rapidly grew to be one of 
the wealthiest und most influential citizens 
in the Beaufort district. In 1854 repre- 
sentative institutions were introduced in the 
Cape Colony, and Molteno became the first 
member for Beaufort in the legislative 
assembly, and bv his skill in debate and 
profound knowledge of the needs of the 
country soon raised himself to the front rank. 
During the governorship of Sir George Grey 
[q. v. Suppl.] he was generally found in sym- 
pathy and support with him, but on the ap- 
§ ointment of Sir Philip Wodehouse [q. v. 
uppl.] in lrto':? he was driven into a strong 
policy of opposit ion. The leading cry among 
Cape politicians was for responsible govern- 
ment, and for manv vears Molteno took the 
foremost place in the battle. When, with the 
approval of the secretary of the colonies, 
Lord Kimberlev, it was conceded in 1872 bv 
Sir Henry Barkly [q. v. Suppl.], the new 
governor, Molteno was by common consent 
designated as the first. Cane premier. 

The first years of his administration were 
marked by great prosperity, by a vast in- 
crease in railroad communication, and by 
the rehabilitation of the colouial finances. 
The acquisition of the diamond fields had a 
considerable share in this, but the main 
credit mav fairly be attributed to the ad- 
ministrative and financial capacity of Mol- 
teno, and to the confidence that he inspired. 

This peaceful epoch was not of long dura- 
tion. Lord Carnarvon was resolved to force 
on his policy of South African confederation. 
Molteno was not opposed to confederation in 
itself, but insisted that it must come gra- 
dually from within and not from without, 
and tnat at the present time it would impose 
unduly onerous burdens on the Cape Colony. 
Lord Carnarvon was unfortunate in his 
choice of James Anthony Froude[q. v. Suppl/ 
the historian, whom he sent out a* an un- 
official representative of the home govern- 
ment in 1875. Failing to obtain Molteno's 



assistance, Froude started an unconstitu- 
tional agitation throughout South Africa 
which, by stirring up the race antagonism 
between English and Dutch, sowed the seeds 
of future calamities. Molteno and his col- 
leagues procured the rejection of a scheme for 
a conference on the subject of confederation, 
and the Cape parliament refused to allow him 
even to discuss the subject with the home 
government when he was in England during 
the following vear. 

In April 1877 Sir Henry Bartle Edward 
Frere [q. v.] succeeded Sir Henry Barkly at 
the Cape. He came out as the special exponent 
of Lord Carnarvon's views, and it was not 
long before he came into conflict with Molteno. 
The latter was a thorough-going exponent 
of colonial rights, and prepared to insist on 
them to their fullest extent. Sir Bartle had 
no experience of self-governing colonies. It 
would have been difficult under any cir- 
cumstances for the two to work in har- 
mony ; Frere's preconceived notions on con- 
federation and native policy* rendered it- 
impossible. The war with the Galekas in 
1877-8 brought matters to a crisis. The 
governor contended that the commander-in- 
chief at the Cape was the only person who 
could command the colonial troops; Molteno 
insisted that, though the governor, as such, 
had power over the colonial forces, it could 
only be exercised with and by the advice of 
his responsible ministers. The ministers 
were unyielding, and on (J Feb. 1878 Frere 
took the strong step of dismissing them, 
under circumstances which showed little 
consideration for Molteno's long services. 

Molteno had reckoned on the support of 
his parliamentary majority, which had never 
failed him hitherto, but in the debate which 
followed his dismissal the legislative assem- 
bly supported his successor, (Sir) Gordon 
Spri gg. Deeply chagrined, and feeling 
helpless before Sir Bartle Frere's policy, to 
which he was opposed in every respect, he 
retired from public life. In 1881, after 
Frere's recall, Molteno entered for a short 
time Mr. Scanlen's administration as colonial 
secretary, but in August 1882 he finally 
withdrew from politics, receiving the decora- 
tion of a K.C.M.G., and followed by widely 
expressed appreciations of his past services. 
After a short sojourn in England he re- 
turned to the Caj>e and died at Claremont 
on 1 Sept. 1S86. 

Sir John Molteno was a man of com- 
manding presence and of great physical 
strength. In private life he was of" most 
simple and unostentatious habits. He was 
thoroughly representative of the early Eng- 
lish settlers at the Cape, and enjoyed the 



full confidence of llle Dlltcb,

chance of the 

latter being able to provide for him in the 
|pnblii' >i r\ ice in Ihiiibind ; but on the ad- 
vice of Sir .loliu Malcolm [q. v.], a friend of 
his father, who went over to Dublin for the 
purpose of combating the idea, the intention 
was abandoned, and early in 1824 Mont- 
gomery returned to Ilaileyburv, passing 
through college at the end of that year. 

In 1825 he proceeded to India, reaching 
Madras on 3 Nov. In those days it was the 
custom for the young civil servants to re- 
main for two years at the presidency town, 
prosecuting their studies in the native lan- 
guages. Montgomery was therefore not ap- 
pointed to the public service until 16 Jan. 
1827, when he was gazetted assistant to the 
principal collector and magistral'- of Net 
lore. On 31 Jan. 1830 lie succeeded his father 
assecoud baronet. He subsequently served 
in various grades of the revenue department 
in the districts of Tunjore, Salem, Tinne- 
velly, and IJellary, completing his revenue 
service in the provinces a* collector of Tan- 
jore. In all these districts he had 
mark as an able and csreful administrator, 
and the result was that in 1843 he was sent 
on a special commission to the Kiijuhmundry 
(now colled the Codiiiery'i district to inquire 
into the causes of its impoverished condition 
and to suggest a remedy. It was upon his re- 
commendation, based upon his experience in 
Tanjore, that Captain (afterwards Sir Ar- 
thur) Cotton [q. v. Suppl.] was deputed to 
Kajabmundry to investigate the question of 
utilising the water.- of the Godarery for the 
purpose of irrigating thedelt a of that river, as 
had been done in Tanjore and Trictiinopnlv in 
thecase of the Caverv and Colero

Montgomery's report and recommenda- 
tions on the condition of the Rajahmundry 
district elicited high commendation from 
the government of Madras, and two years 
later he was selected by the Marquis of 
Tweeddale [see George Hay, eighth Mar- 
quis of Tweeddale] to fill a vacancy in the 
government secretariat. He served as secre- 
tary to government in the revenue and 
public works departments until 1850, when 
he was promoted to the chief secretaryship. 
In 1855 he was appointed by the court of 
directors a member of the governor's council, 
which post he held until 1857, when, his 
health failing, he returned to England, and 
in the course of that year resigned his 
appointment and retired from the Indian 
civil service. In the following year, on 
the establishment of the council of India 
in London, Montgomery was appointed to 
be one of the first members of the new coun- 
cil, and this position he retained until 1876, 
when he finally retired from official life. 
On the occasion of his retirement he was 
appointed, at the recommendation of the 
Marquis of Salisbury, then secretarv of state 
for India, to be a member of the privy coun- 
cil, an honour which is very rarely conferred 
upon Indian civil servants. 

Montgomery's official career was eminently 
successful. lie was not a brilliant man, 
but he was an extremely useful public 
servant. As a very young man he was 
remarked for the carefulness and accuracy 
of his work. "When he became the head of a 
district, he was regarded as one of the ablest 
district officers in the presidency to which he 
belonged. He certainly had the advantage 
of possessing influential friends. Lord Wel- 
lestey had formed a high opinion of him 
when In 1 worked in Dublin in the lord- 
lieutenant's private office, and did not fail 
to exert his influence on his behalf. Sir 
John Malcolm was also a kind friend to him. 
But he fully justified their recommendations. 
By his report upon the Rajahmundry dis- 
trict, and dv the recommendations which he 
made for improving its condition, he ren- 
dered a service to the state, the benefits of 
which still remain. In the higher posts 
which he subsequently filled in Madras, as 
secretary and chief secretary to government 
and member of council, he fully maintained 
his previous reputation. By the successive 
governors under whom he served in the 
secretariat and in council, the Marquis of 
Tweeddale, Sir nenry Pottinger, and Lord 
Harris, he was trusted as a wise and con- 
scientious adviser. During his long service 
in the Indian council, extending over 
eighteen years, he was highly esteemed | 



both by successive secretaries of state and by 
his colleagues in the council. His minutes, 
when he found himself called upon to dis- 
sent from the decisions of the secretary of 
state or of a majority of the council, were 
models of independent but courteous 
criticism. He retained to the last a keen 
interest in the presidency in which the 
whole of his Indian service had been 
passed. Indeed, it has been sometimes 
thought that he carried beyond due limits 
his advocacy of the claims of his old presi- 
dency, as in the case of the Madras harbour 
project, which was sanctioned by the 
India office, mainly at his instance, but has 
been a heavy burden upon the Indian 
revenues without compensating results. On 
political questions concerning the south of 
India he was a high authority. When the na- 
wab of the Carnatic died in 1858, Montgomery 
supported Lord Harris in advocating the ex- 
tinction of the titular nawabship as a mis- 
chievous remnant of a state of things which, 
for political reasons, it was inexpedient to 
maintain. But he was not opposed in prin- 
ciple to the maintenance of native dynasties. 
In 1863 he wrote a cogent minute dissenting 
from the refusal of the secretary of state in 
council to restore to the rajah of Mysore the 
administrations of the territories of that 
state. The policy which on this occasion 
Montgomery opposed had been supported 
by two successive governors-general, the 
Marquis of Dalhousie and Earl Canning, 
but was subsequently reversed. 

Montgomery died suddenly in London on 
24 June 1878. In appearance he was sin- 
gularly handsome, although small in stature. 
In manner he was invariably courteous, 
and his courtesy was the outcome of a kindly 
nature. He possessed in a conspicuous 
degree the rare virtue of readiness to admit 
error when he found that he had misjudged 
another. He married, on 3 March 1827, 
Leonora, daughter of General Richard Pigot, 
who survived him, dying on 16 June 1889. 
He left no children, and was succeeded as 
third baronet by his brother, Admiral Sir 
Alexander Leslie Montgomery (1807-1888)

large selection is available, including very 
many devotional works, some scientific trea- 
tises, and selections from Shakespeare, Mil- 
ton, Burns, Scott, Longfellow, and other 
standard authors. 

Moon met with a girl born blind, who 
supposed that horses stood upright and 
walked with two legs ; this suggested to 
him embossed' Pictures for the Blind,' teach- 
ing them by the touch to realise the forms 
of common objects. He also issued em- 
bossed diagrams for Euclid, music, and 
maps, both geographical mid astronomical. 
He was made a fellow -if the Royal Geogra- 
phical Seoielv in 1 s.'ij, i, fellow nf tin! Soe.ietv 
of Arts in 1859, and in 1871 the university 
of Philadelphia created him LL.D. He 

warmly advocated home teaching societies 
for the blind, which by his eflarts were 
founded in many places; and lending libra- 
ries of Moon's hooks exist in eighty towns of 
the United Kingdom, in Paris. Turin, and 
various cities of tbe United States and 
the British colonies. In furtherance of these 
objects he often travelled through Scotland, 
Ireland, and the continent ; in 1883 he visited 
ili.' United States, lie received great help, 
especially in the matter of lending libraries, 
from Sir Charles Lowtker, with whom he 
became intimate in 1836, and who remained 
hia closest friend, dying onlv a few days 
after him. On 4 Sept. I860 Sir Charles laid 
the foundation-stone of a new building at 
UUQnsen'i Road, near the Brighton rail- 
way station; in the*e premises, since con- 
sii.ii-riblv enlarged, the entire production of 
the embossed books is still carried on. 

In 1885 Moon spent several months in 
Sweden. As the jubilee of his work ap- 

E reached, a movement, for a testimonial to 
im was originated in Scotland ; and on 
16 April 181)0 he was presented with a 
chiming clock, purse of L'fiO/., and an illu- 
minated address. His devotion to evange- 
listic work, of which t he publishing was only 
a portion, brought <>nn slight paralytic stroke 
in the autumn of 189l', after which his ac- 
tivity was nee easarily lessened. He died and-

denly on 10 Oct. 1894, and was buried on 
the 15th in the extramural cemetery at 
Brighton, many of his blind pupils attending 
the funeral and singing over the grave. 
Some years before his death he had made 
over the freehold site of his premises to 
trustees for the continuance of his work in 
publishing embossed books for the blind. 

Moon was twice married — in 1848 to Mary 
Ann Caudle, daughter of a Brighton sur- 
geon, who died in 1804; and in 1866 to 
Anna Maria Elsdale, a granddaughter of 
William Leeves [q. v.], the composer of 
* Auid Robin Gray. 1 By the first marriage 
he had a son, who was of great assistance to 
him in arranging his types to foreign lan- 
guages, and is now a physician in Phila- 
delphia; and a daughter, who now super- 
intends the undertaking that Moon inaugu- 
rated. 

Moon wrote : 1. ' A Memoir of Harriet 
Pollard, Blind Vocalist,' 1860. 2. ' Blind- 
ness, its Consequences and Ameliorations/ 
1868. 3. « Light for the Blind/ 1873. He 
composed a set of twelve tunes to devotional 
poetry, which were printed both in his em- 
bossed type and in ordinary music notation.

MOORE, HENRY (1831-1896), marine 
painter, born at York on 7 March 1831, was 
the second son of the portrait painter, Wil- 
liam Moore (1790-1851) [q. v.], by his second 
wife Sarah Collingham, and the teuth 
child and ninth son of the whole family 
of fourteen. Albert Joseph Moore [q. v.] 
was his brother. Henry was educated at 
York and was taught painting by his father. 
He entered the Royal Academy schools in 
1853, and exhibited his first picture, 'Glen 
Clunie, Braemar/ at the Royal Academy in 
the same year. He was a constant exhibitor 
at the Royal Academy from that time 
onwards. He exhibited at the Portland 
Gallery from 1856 to 1860, and at the 
British Institution from 1855 to 1865. It 
was also in 1855 that he sent the first of 
many contributions to the gallery of the 
Society of British Artists in Suffolk Street. 
He was a member of that society from 1867 
to 1875. He was also a constant contri- 
butor, both in oils and water-colours, to the 
Dudley Gallery from 1865 to 1882. He 
became an associate of the Old Water-colour 
Society in 1876, and a full member in 1880. 
He contributed in later years to the Grosvenor 



Gallery and the New Gallery. He was 
elected an associate of the Royal Academy 
on 4 June 1885, and an academician on 
4 May 1893. 

Almost all his early pictures were land- 
scapes, painted in many parts of England, 
or, about 1856, in Switzerland. It was 
towards 1870 that he began to devote him- 
self almost exclusively to the marine subjects 
in which the best work of his maturity was 
done. He had a profound and scientific 
knowledge of wave-form, acquired at the 
cost of exposure in all weathers, and he was 
generally content to paint the sea itself with- 
out introducing ships or human figures. He 
made his studies chiefly in the English 
Channel. He was a fine colourist, and held 
the foremost rank among English marine 
painters of his day. Among the most re- 
markable of his Academy pictures are * A 
White Calm' (1858), 'The Launch of the 
Lifeboat' (1876), now in the Walker Art 
Gallery, Liverpool, ' Cat's-paws off the Land,' 
which was bought out of the funds of the 
Chantrey Bequest in 1885, and is now nt 
Millbank, < The Clearness after Rain ' (1887), 
which won for the painter the grand prix 
and legion of honour at the Paris Exhibi- 
tion of 1889, ' A Breezy Day in the Channel 1 
( 1888), < Shine and Shower' (1889), « Summer 
at Sea ' (1 893), and < Britannia's Realm.' A n 
exhibition of ninety pictures by Moore, en- 
titled ' Afloat and Ashore,' was held by the 
Fine Art Society in 1 887. The total number 
of pictures exhibited by Moore was not far 
short of six hundred. Shortly before hi* 
death an exhibition was held at York of the 
works of the father, William Moore, and his 
five artist sons, Edwin, William (still living), 
John Collingham, Henry, and Albert Joseph. 

Moore lived for many years at Hampstesd, 
but died at Margate on 22 June 1895. He 
married in 1860 Mary {d. 1890), daughter of 
Itobert Bollans of York. He had two daugh- 
ters by this marriage.

ii prm.-lir.-t>, and received a number of pupila 
to read in bis chambers, among them Mr.

tion of Statutes and General Orders re- 
cently passed.' This, with slight variations 
in the title, ran through six editions, the 
second being published in lStiO, and the 
hist la 1885. He also became one of the 
four joint editors of ' the New Reports,' 
which contained cases decided in the courts 
of equity and common law between Novem- 
ber U&2 and August 1«65, the first of the 
si\ volumes appearing in March 1863.

borough, but withdrew in order to avoid 
division in the liberal party. A similar in- 
cident took place in 1867 in connection with 
Denbigh borough. In 1868, on MialTs re- 
commendation, he was invited to stand for 
Denbighshire. He was returned as junior 
colleague to Sir Watkin Williams Wynn on 
24 Nov. 1868. His maiden speech, deli- 
vered on 15 March 1869, was in support of 
the second reading of the university tests 
abolition bill. It struck the attention of 
Bright, and led to a friendship maintained 
throughout the rest of his life. On 6 July 
Osborne Morgan seconded Henry Richard s 
resolution upon the subject of evictions of 
liberal tenants by Welsh landlords during 
the recent elections. During this session too 
he first addressed himself to a question which 
long occupied his energies, that of the law 
affecting married women's property (14 April 
1869), and he supported by a speech the 
second reading of §ir Wilfrid Lawson's per- 
missive prohibitory liquor bill (12 May). 
On 10 Feb. 1870 he first introduced the 
measure with which his name was long asso- 
ciated, the burials bill permitting any Chris- 
tian service in a parish churchyard, and on 
the same day he obtained the leave of the 
house to introduce the places of worship (sites) 
bill, facilitating the acquisition of land for 
religious purposes. From this bill, as intro- 
duced in 1870, W. E. Forster borrowed the 
clauses of the Elementary Education Act of 
that year empowering school boards to 
acquire land compulsorily. The places of 
worship (sites) bill did not become law 
till 1873. In 1871 and 1872 he seconded 
Sir Koundell Palmer's resolutions in favour 
of the creation of a general school of law, 
which led to the institution of examina- 
tions by the inns of court before calling 
students of law to the bar. He had been 
appointed a queen's counsel on 23 June 
1869, and elected a bencher of Lincoln's Inn 
in the Michaelmas term following. In 1890 
he became treasurer. His profession led 
him to take much interest in the reform of 
the land laws. During the session of 1878 
he acted as chairman of the select committee 
on land titles and transfer, and drafted 
its report dated 24 June 1879. ne also 
contributed an article upon the same subject 
to the * Fortnightly Keview* for December 
1879, and in 1 880 reprinted it as a pamphlet 
under the title * Land Law Reform in Eng- 
land.' On all topics directly associated with 
law, such as the bills for the reconstitution 
of the courts of judicature (1873 and 1875), 
he frequently addressed the house. He sup- 
ported the measure for the reform of the 
universities of Oxford and Cambridge (1877), 



Mr. (now Sir George) Trevelyan's resolution 
for the extension of the suffrage to the 
counties (1879 J, and the Welsh Sunday 
closing bill, which became law in 1681. 
For ten successive sessions he introduced 
the burials bill, sometimes carrying it 
through the House of Commons by consider- 
able majorities, but it was not finally passed 
by the House of Lords till 1880. 

On the accession of Gladstone to power 
in that year Osborne Morgan became a 
member of the ministry ao judge-tdyoctto- 
general, and retired from the bar. He was 
also nominated a privy councillor. Upon 
the introduction by him on 28 March 1881 
of the annual army discipline &c. bill, he 
provided for the abolition of the punishment 
of flogging, and carried it in spite of a strong 
opposition. He had sole charge of the 
married women's property bill, 1882, a 
bill which, bristling with legal difficulties, 
required exceptionally skilful handling in 
its passage through the House of Commons. 
It became law the same session. He took 
a warm interest in Welsh intermediate and 
higher education. On 14 March 1884 he 
supported by a speech Mr. (now Lord) 
Rendel's motion in favour of placing Aber- 
ystwyth College, ' in respect of state recogni- 
tion and support, on an equal footing with 
the colleges at Cardiff and Bangor.' He 
was anxious to improve the education of 
women, and took part in the foundation of 
a women's hostel at Banpor College. An 
' Osborne Morgan exhibition' was founded 
in the University College of North Wales 
after his death to commemorate his services. 
After the redistribution of the constitu- 
encies in 1885 Osborne Morgan, as sitting 
member, had the natural right of choice 
between East and West Denbighshire. West 
Denbighshire was held to be a safe liberal 
seat, whereas East Denbighshire was the 
centre of the influence of the Wynn family. 
With characteristic courage and self-sacrifice 
he chose the constituency which no liberal 
but himself could hope to contest with any 
prospect of success. In the result he won 
the election by 393 votes, and the Wynn 
family was deposed from the representation 
of the county for the first time for 182 
years. This service was rewarded, on 
Gladstone's accession to office in February 
1 886, by the appointment of Osborne Morgan 
as parliamentary under-secretary for the 
colonies. As his chief, Lord Granville, sat 
in the House of Lords, the labour of repre- 
senting the department in parliament chiefly 
fell upon Osborne Morgan. His tenure of 
office lasted only six months, but it was 
marked by exceptional activity. The distress

MORRIS, RICHARD (1833-1894),Eng- 
lish scholar and philologist, was born at Ber- 
mondsey on 8 Sept. 1 833, of Welsh paren- 
tage. He was trained for an elementary 
schoolmaster at St. John's College, Battersea, 
but his education was for the most part self- 
acquired. In 1869 he was appointed Win- 
chester lecturer on English language and 
literature in King's College school, in 1871 
he was ordained, and served for two years 
as curate of Christ Church, Camberwell. 
From 1875 to 1888 he was head-master of 
the Royal Masonic Institution for Boys at 
Wood Qreen, and afterwards for a short 
time master of the old grammar school of 
Dedham in Essex. His diploma of LL.D. 
came from Lambeth, being given him in 
1870 by Archbishop Tait. The university 
of Oxford conferred upon him the honorary 
degree of M. A. on 28 May 1874. 

As early as 1857 Morris showed the bent 
of his mind by publishing a little book on 

* The Etymology of Local Names.' He was 
one of the first to join as an active member 
the Chaucer, Early English, and Philological 
societies, founded by his lifelong friend, 
Dr. F. J. Furni vull. None of his colleagues 
surpassed him in the devotion which he ex- 
pended upon editing the oldest remains of 
our national literature from the original 
manuscript sources, on the same scientific 

firinciples as adopted by classical scholars, 
let ween 18H2 and 1880 he brought out no 
less than twelve volumes for the Early Eng- 
lish Text Society, of which may be specially 
mentioned three series of * Homilies' (1808 
seq.) and two of ' Alliterative Poems' (1864). 
In 1866 he edited Chaucer for the ' Aldine 
Poets' (2nd edit. 1891). This was the first 
edition to be based upon manuscripts since 
that of Thomas Tvrwhitt [q. v.], and re- 
mained the standard one until it was super- 
seded by Professor Skeat's edition (1894-7). 
In 1869 he edited Spenser for (Macmillan 8 
4 Globe ' edition, again using manuscripts as 
well as the original editions. In 1867 he 
published at the Clarendon Press, Oxford, 

* Specimens of Early English,' which has 
been augmented in subsequent editions by 
Professor Skeat. These are books for scholars 
and students. But Morris's long experience 
as a schoolmaster induced him to undertake 
a series of educational works, which have 
contributed largely to place the teaching of 
English upon a sound basis. The first of 



these was ' Historical Outlines of English 
Accidence' (1872), which, after passing 
through some twenty editions, was thoroughly 
revised after his death by Mr. Henry Brad- 
ley and Dr. L. Kellner. Two years later 
(1874) he brought out ' Elementary Lessons 
in Historical English Grammar;' and in 
the same year a pnmer of ' English Gram- 
mar.' From both of these tens of thousands 
of boys and girls have learnt their earliest 
knowledge of their own tongue, which they 
will never need to unlearn. 

Scarcely had Morris struck out this remu- 
nerative line of authorship when he delibe- 
rately turned aside to devote the remainder 
of his life to what is probably the least 
appreciated of all the branches of philology 
— the study of Pali, the sacred language of 
Buddhism. In this case the stimulus came 
from his intimacy with Professor Rhys 
Davids, the founder of the Pali Text Society. 
For that society he edited, between 1882 
and 1888, four texts, being more than any 
other contributor down to that time. But 
he did not confine himself to editing. His 
familiarity with the development of early 
English caused him to take a special inte- 
rest in the corresponding position of Pali, 
as standing midway between the ancient 
Sanskrit and the modern vernaculars, and 
as branching out into various dialects known 
as Prakrits. These relations of Pali he 
expounded in a series of letters to the 
' Academy,' which are valuable not only for 
their lexicographical facts, but also as illus- 
trating the historical growth of the languages 
of India. The very last work he was able 
to complete was a paper on this subject, 
read before the International Congress of 
Orientalists in London in September 1892. 
Unfortunately he could not himself correct 
the proofs of this paper as printed in the 
' Transactions.' 

For the last two years of his life Morris 
was prostrated by an incurable and dis- 
tressing illness, which he bore with charac- 
teristic fortitude, preserving his cheerfulness 
and his love of a good story to the last. 
He retired to the railway-side hamlet of 
Harold Wood in Essex, and there he died 
on 12 May 1894. He was buried at Horn- 
church, within which parish Harold Wood 
is included. In 1893 Gladstone had con- 
ferred upon him a pension of 150/. on the 
civil list ; and on 2 June 1896 new pensions 
of 25/. each were created in favour of his 
three daughters. The greater part of his 
valuable philological library was acquired 
by the bookseller, Mr. David Nutt.

the iwo men lived in the ch'sest intimacy, 
not only of daily intercourse but of thought 
and work. They were the two ftiuilliinl 
figures in a group of undergraduates, chiefly 
Birmingham schoolfellows of Iturne-.lones, 
which was perhaps more remarkable than 
any which Oxford has produced since. 

At Exeter Morris read only for a pass 
degree, and mixed little in the general life 
of tli" ooUago. But be was an incessant, 
swift, and omnivorous reader, and his pro- 

ilijj inury enabled him in those few 

mm to lay up u enormous store of know- 

,;i.>us perplexities, under which, 

in l-'il, lie was ou the point of joining the 
Homan communion, passed over soou after- 
wards; ecclesiastical history and Anglican 
theology were in turn mastered mid put 
aside, and their influence was gradually re- 
placed by an artistic mid social enthusiasm 
in which Corlyle, liuskin.nnd Kiugsley were 
the chief modern leaders whom he followed. 
When he came of age in 18flfi he still 
cherished a fancy oi'devol in [.'his considerable 
fortune to Ihe foundation of a monastery in 
which he and his friends might, combine an 
ascetic life with the organised production of 
religious art. This ideal became gradually 
enlarged aud secularised, but remained, in 
one firm or another, his ideal throughout 

In the autumn of 1854 Morris had made 
his first visit to northern France, and in the 
long vacation of 1855 he repeated the tour 
in company with Burue-Jones and William 
Fulfonl, another member of the undergra- 
duate circle, who were now known among 
themselves as ' the Brotherhood.' During 
ibis tour, under the added impulse of his 
boundless enthusiasm for French Gothic, he 
definitely renounced the purpose of taking 
orders with which he had gone to Oxford, 
and made un his mind to be an architect. 
As soon as tie had passed his final schools 
thai winter, he articled himself as a pupil to 
George Edmund .Street [q. T.J, already one 
of the most prominent architects of the 
revived English Gothic, who then had bis 
headquarters in Oxford as architect to the 
diocese. The articles were signed on 2d Jan. 
1856. In Street's office Morris formed an 
intimate and lifelong friendship with the 
senior clerk, Philip Webb [q. v.], which had 
an important influence over the development 
taken bv English domestic architecture 
daring the next generation. He worked in 
Street's office for the rest, of that year, first 
Oxford, and afterwards in London when

while Bunie-Jones had left Oxford without

painter in London. The influence of Rossetti 
was immensely strong on both ; and when 
Morris also came to London and shared rooms 
with Burne-Jones, Rossetti succeeded in con- 
vincing him that he too ought to be a painter. 
Towards the end of the year he emitted 
Street's office, took a studio for himself and

bays of the walls, and designed, and exe- 
cuted with some help from friends, the orna- 
mentation of the whole roof. While en- 
gaged on this work at Oxford he made the 
acquaintance of the lady whom he after- 
wards (26 April 1869) married, Miss Jane 
Burden. 

For several years after his marriage Morris 
was absorbed in two intimately connected 
occupations : the building and decoration of

former, and in 1865 established himself,

under the Mine roof with his workshops, in 
Queen Squire, Bloomsbury. 

During the five years (1860-5) at Red 
House, poetry had been almost laid aside in 
the pressure of other occupation. The un- 
nnisned drafts of a cycle of lyrico-dramatic 
poems called ' Scenes from tbe Fall of Troy ' 
are the only surviving product of that 
period. But on his return to London he re- 
sumed the writing of poetry in a completely 
new manner and with extraordinary copious- 
ness. The general scheme of the * Earthly 
Paradise ' had been already framed by him ; 
and in 1866 he began the composition of a 
series of narrative poems for this work, 
which he continued for about four vears to 
pour forth incessantly. One of the earliest 
written, the * Story of the Q olden Fleece/ 
outgrew its limits so much that it became a 
substantive epic of over ten thousand lines. 
It was separately published, under the title 
of * The Life and Death of Jason,* in June 
1867, and gave Morris a recognised position 
in the foremost rank of modern poets. The 
three volumes of the ' Earthly Paradise/ suc- 
cessively published in 1868-70, contained 
twenty-five more narrative poems, connected 
with one another by a framework of intricate 
skill and singular fitness and beauty. Several 
more are still extant in manuscript, and 
others again were destroyed by their author ; 
but those actually published (including the 
* Jason') extend to over fifty thousand lines. 
In this fluent copiousness of narration, as 
well as in choice and use of metres, and in 
other subtler qualities, Morris went for his 
model to Chaucer, whom he professed as his 
chief master in poetry. 

This torrent of production did not lead 
him to slacken in his work as a decorative 
manufacturer, to which at the beginning of 
1870 he began to add that of producing il- 
luminated manuscripts on paper and vellum, 
executed in many different styles, but all of 
unapproached beauty among modern work. 
About the same time he had made his first 
acquaintance with the Icelandic Sagas in 
the original, and begun to translate them 
into English. One of these translations, that 
of the ' V olsunga-saga/ was published under 
the joint names of Morris and his Icelandic 
tutor, E. Magnusson, in May 1870. In the 
previous month he had sat to Watts for the 
portrait, now presented by the painter to the 
National Portrait Gallery, which represents 
Morris at the prime of his vigour and the 
height of his powers. 

The completion of the ' Earthly Paradise ' 
was followed by a pause in Morris's poet ical 
activity. In the summer of 1871 he made a 
journey through Iceland, the effects of 



which upon his mind may be traced in much 
of his later work. In t he same year he ac- 
quired what became his permanent country 
home, Kelmscott Manor House, a small but 
very beautiful and wholly undisfigured 
building of the early seventeenth century on 
the banks of the Thames near Lechlade. 
Round this house that Move of the earth 
and worship of it/ which was his deepest 
instinct, centred for all the rest of his lite. 

For several years about this time there 
may be traced in all Morris's work a rest- 
lessness due to the constant search after fresh 
methods of artistic expression, and the grow- 
ing feeling that, inasmuch as true art is co- 
extensive with life, the true practice of art 
involves at every point questions belonging 
to the province of moral, social, and political 
doctrine. A prose novel of modern English 
life, begun in the spring of 1871 and never 
completed, was one of these essays in fresh 
methods. Another was the poem of ' Love 
is Enough/ begun after Morris's return from 
Iceland, and published at the end of 1872 : a 
singular and imperfectly successful attempt 
to revive, under modern conditions, the 
dramatic method of the later middle ages, 
and the Middle-English alliterative verse 
I which had been driven out of use by foreign 
1 metres in the fifteenth century. For the 
next two years his leisure was mainly oc- 
cupied by work as a scribe and illuminator; 
to this period belong, among other works, 
the two exquisite manuscripts of Fitzgerald's 
* Omar Khayyam ' belonging to Lady Burne- 
Jones and Mrs. J. F. Horner. Towards the 
end of 1874 the dissolution of the firm of 
Morris, Marshall, Faulkner, & Co. became 
necessary for various reasons, and questions 
which arose as to the claims of the outgoing 
partners led to a period of much difficulty 
and trouble. The effect on Morris after the 
first shock was a bracing one ; and if the first 
period of his lift? had ended with the comple- 
tion of the ' Earthly Paradise/ a second now 
opened which, without the irrecoverable 
romance of youth, was as copious in achieve- 
ment upon a much wider field. 

The first products of this new period were 
in literature. lie had been for some time 
engaged in the production of a magnificent 
folio manuscript of the ^Eneid/ and in the 
course of that work had begun to translate 
the poem into English ver.se. The manu- 
script was finally laid aside for the trans- 
lation, and the '-Kneids of Virgil ' was pub- 
lished in November 1875. It had been 
preceded earlier in the veur by a volume of 
translations from the Icelandic under the 
title of * Three Northern Love Stories/ and 
was followed almost at once by the com-

position of his longest poem, the epic of 
' Sigurd the Volsung and the Fall of the 
Niblungs.' This was published at the .end 
of 1876. Morris himself thought it his 
highest, if not his best, work in poetry. In 
it the influence of the north is seen at its 
height, and for the time has expelled, or 
driven below the surface, his romantic 
mediae vali8m and all traces of the Chaucerian 
manner. Here as elsewhere he owed little 
to English predecessors or contemporaries. 
His inspiration was drawn directly from the 
northern epics of the tenth to twelfth cen- 
turies, where it did not derive from models 
still more ancient and more universal ; and 
the ' Sigurd ' is at once the most largely 
and powerfully modelled of all Morris's 
poetical works, and the poem which ap- 
proximates most nearly to the Homeric 
spirit and manner of all European poems 
since the ' Iliad ' and ' Odyssey/ 

During the period of the composition of 
' Sigurd the Volsung ' Morris had taken up, 
with his customary vehement thoroughness, 
the practical art of dyeing as a necessary 
adjunct of his manufacturing business. He 
spent much of his time at Staffordshire dye 
works in mastering all the processes of that 
art and making experiments in the revival 
of old or discovery of new methods. One 
result of these experiments was to reinstate 
indigo-dyeing as a practical industry, and 
generally to renew the use of those vege- 
table dyes which had been driven almost 
out of use by the anilines. Dyeing of wools, 
silks, and cottons was the necessary pre- 
liminary to what he had much at heart, the 
production of woven and printed stuff's of 
the highest excellence : and the period 
(1875-6) of incessant work at the dye-vat 
was followed by a period during which 
(1877-8) he was absorbed in the production 
of textiles, and more especially in the iv- 
vival of caroet-weaving as a fine art. Amid 
these manifold labours he was also taking 
more and more part in public affairs. From 
1876 onwards be was an officer and one of 
the most active members of the Eastern 
Question Association. In 1877 he founded 
the Society *br the IYotection of Ancient 
Buildings. In 1>79 he became treasurer of 
the National Liberal League. In these 
year* he be^an the practice of giving lec- 
ture* and addresses (at first chieflv to work- 
ing dosic™rs and art students '."which re- 
mained afterwards one of his main occupa- 
tions. The work of the firm, part I v in 
consequence of the new departures "now 
taken, partly from a wider knowledge and 
P^* *PV»*oiation of its products, was 
ateaddy expanding. The premise* at Queen 



Square had already become too small for it. 
Morris and his family had been driven out 
in 1872 that the whole house might be 
utilised for workrooms (he then lived first 
at Turnham Green, and from 1878 for the 
rest of his life on the Upper Mall of Ham- 
mersmith), and in 1881 the establishment 
was removed to large premises at Merton 
Abbey near Wimbledon, a sale-room and 
counting-house having been already set up 
in Oxford Street in the West End of London. 

Since the completion of the 'Sigurd,' 
Morris's production in creative literature 
had almost ceased. Only a few months 
after its publication he had declined to be 
put in nomination for the professorship of 
poetry at Oxford, and since then his life had 
been more and more that of a manufacturer 
and a man keenly interested in public affaire, 
and less that of a man of letters and artist. 
In 1882 a combination of convergent causes 
profoundly altered his political attachments 
and his attitude towards politics. His en- 
thusiasm for liberalism, after many severe 
checks from the whiggerv of his party 
leaders, had been converted into open dis- 
gust by the Irish coercive legislation of 1881 
and the timidity or aversion with which the 
liberal government regarded his favourite 
projects of social reform. Looking back in 
his forty-ninth year over what he nad done 
and what he had failed to do, and looking 
to the future in the light of the past, he 
found himself forced reluctantly to the con- 
clusion that hitherto he had not gone to the 
root of the matter: that, art being a func- 
tion of life, sound art was impossible except 
where life was organised under sound con- 
ditions: that the tendencv of what is called 
civilisation since the great industrial revo- 
lution had been to dehumanise life ; and that 
the only hope for the future was, if that 
were yet possible, to reconstitute society on 
a new basis. 

The Democratic Federation — a league of 
London working men's radical clubs with 
leanings towards state-socialism — was the 
only organisation at hand which seemed to 
Morris, from this r*>int of view, to be at 
work in the right direction. In the belief 
that better conditions of life for the working 
class — which substantially included the ob- 
jects towards which that body worked — 
were the necessary first step "towards all 
further progress, and that they could be at- 
tained by properly organised action on the 
part of the working class itself. Morris joined 
t he federat ion in January 1 <>3. He had a few 
days before been elected an honorary fellow of 
Exeter College. Oxford. The doctrine of the 
federation rapidly developed within thai year

nmiu-i.s. 'The Water of the Wondrous 
Isles' and 'The Stun- nf the Sundering 
Flood,' the last two of the series, wore only 
published after his death (1897, 1898). 
Midway between these romances and the 
1 literature of socialism is the romantic pas- 
toral of 'News from Nowhere,' describing 
the England of some remote future under 
ivuli.-t'il communism, which rippenri'd in [In.- 
'Commonweal ' in l,S!«l, and mi. published 
as a book in 1891. 

The socialist league had since 1887 been 
dwindling in numbers and losingcnherence: 
its control passed in I**!* into the hands of 
a group of anarchists, and in 1*90 Morris 
formally withdrew from it. He hod already 
become absorbed in a new work, that, of re- 
viving the art of printing as it had llniirishid 
in the later year* of the fifteenth century. 
The Kelmscutt I'ress was started hv him at 
Hammersmith during I *!.«(. lie 'designed 
for it three founts of type and an immense 
number of ornamental letters and borders, 
and superintended all the details of printing 
and production. In 1898 he also became 
his own publisher. One of the earliest of 
the Keimscott Press books was a volume of 
his own shorter poems, chiefly lyrics nnd 
ballads, entitled 'Poems bv' tie Waj ' 
(1801), the greater number o'f which were 
now published for the first time. Fifty- 
three books in all wer* issued from the Press 
between April 1891 and .March 1808, when 

They fall broadly under three heads: (I)

classics, mediieval and modern, beginning 
with that ol' (.'"lion's- ' Golden Legend'

1896, which competent judges have pro-

duced ; (3) various smaller books, originals 
or translations, including a series of stories 
translated by Morris from mediaeval 
French. These, with a full account of the 
inception and working of the Kelmscott 
Press, are set forth in a history of the Press 
by Morris's secretary, Mr. S. C. Cockerell, 
which was the last book issued from it 
(1898). 

During these years Morris also took an 
active Dart in various movements towards 
organising guilds of designers and decora- 
tive workmen, and continued to write and 
speak on behalf of the principles of socialism 
with no loss of conviction or enthusiasm. 
He also formed, with special relation to his 
work as a printer, a collection of early 
printed books, and, a little later, another of 
illuminated manuscripts of the twelfth to 
the fifteenth centuries ; both of these were 
at his deatli among the choicest collections 
existing in private ownership. On the death 
of Tennyson in 1894 the question of Morris's 
succession to the laureateship was enter- 
tained by the government, but was laid aside 
on an expression being obtained from him of 
his own disinclination for such an office. 
In 1895 his health began to give way under 
the strain of a crowded and exhausting life. 
When the magnificent Kelmscott Chaucer 
was finished in June 1896 he had sunk into 
very feeble health, and he died at Hammer- 
smith on 3 Oct. in that year. His widow 
and two daughters survived him. 

Morris was a singular instance of a man 
of immense industrv and force of character, 
whose whole life, through a long period of 
manifold activity and multiform production, 
was guided by a very few simple ideas. His 
rapid movements from one form of produc- 
tive energy to another often gave occasion for 
perplexity to his friends as well as for satire 
from his opponents. But in fact all these 
varying energies were directed towards a 
single object, the re-integration of human 
life ; and he practised so many arts because 
to him art was a single thing. Just so his 
work, in whatever field, while it expressed 
his own ideas with complete sincerity, bears 
an aspect of median nl ism, because it was 
all produced in relation to a single doctrine: 
that civilisation had ever since the break-up 
of the middle ages been, upon the whole, on 
a wrong course, and that in the specific arts 
as well as in the general conduct of life it 
was necessary to go back to the middle ages, 
not with the view of remaining at the point 
which had been then readied, but of start- 
ing afresh from that point and tracing out 
the path that had been missed. So long as 
any human industry existed which had once 



been exercised as an art in the full sense, 
and had now become mechanical or com- 
mercial, so long Morris would instinctively 
have passed from one to another, tracing 
back each to its source, and attempting to 
reconstitute each as a real art so far as the 
conditions of the modern world permitted. 
When he became a socialist, it was because 
he had realised that these existing conditions 
were stronger than any individual genius or 
any private co-operation, and that towards a 
new birth of art a new kind of life was 
necessary. To gain the whole he was will- 
ing for a time to give up the parts. When 
convinced by experience that the whole was 
for his own generation unattainable, he re- 
sumed his work on specific arts, to use his 
own words, ' because he could not help it, 
and would be miserable if he were not doing 

it.' ... 

The fame of Morris during his life was 
probably somewhat obscured oy the variety 
of his accomplishments. In all his work 
after he reached mature life there is a 
marked absence of extravagance, of display, 
of superficial cleverness or effectiveness, and 
an equally marked sense of composition and 
subordination. Thus his poetry is singularly 
devoid of striking lines or phrases, and his 
wall-papers and chintzes only reveal their 
full excellence by the lastingnessof the satis- 
faction they give. His genius as a pattern- 
designer is allowed by all qualified judges to 
have been unequalled. This, if anything, 
he himself regarded as his specific profes- 
sion ; it was under the designation of ( de- 
signer' that he enrolled himself in the 
socialist ranks and claimed a position as one 
of the working class. And it is the quality 
of design which, together with a certain fluent 
ease, distinguishes his work in literature as 
well as in industrial art. It is yet too early to 
forecast what permanent place he mav hold 
among English poet s. ' The Defence of druene- 
: vere* had a deep influence on a very limited 
audience. With ' Jason ' and the ' Earthly 
I Paradise' he attained a wide popularity: 
! and these poems, appearing as they did at a 
time when the poetic art in England seemed 
I narrowing into mere labour on a thrice- 
j ploughed field, not only gave a new scope, 
range, and flexibility to English rhymed 
i verse, but recovered for narrative poetry a 
I place among the foremost kinds of the art. 
1 A certain diffuseness of style may seem to be 
I against their permanent life, so far as it is 
not compensated by a uniform wholesome- 
ness and sweetness which indeed marks all 
Morris's work. In * Sigurd the Vblsung * 
Morris appears to have aimed higher than in 
his other poems, but not to have reached his

MORTON, GEORGE HIGHFIELD 
(1826-1900), geologist, was the son of George 
Morton, a brewer, by his wife Elizabeth 
Bartenshaw, both of Liverpool. He was 
born in that city on 9 July 1826, went to 
school there, and when about sixteen years 
old became interested in geology. Going 
into business as a house decorator, he devoted 
every spare minute to his favourite study, 
exploring the country round Liverpool, and 
pushing nis researches into North W ales and 
Shropshire. He formed a large and valuable 
collection of fossils, of which those from the 
Trias downwards have been acauired by the 
British Museum of Natural History, and 
the remainder by the Liverpool University 
College. Morton became F.G.S. in 1858, 
and was awarded the Lyell medal of that 
society in 1892. He was a member of 
various local societies, notably of the Geo- 
logical Society of Liverpool, of which he 
was founder in 1859, honorary secretary for 
twenty-six years, and twice president. Also 
for several years after 1864 he was lecturer 
on geology at Queen's College, Liverpool. 
He died on 30 March 1900. His wife, 
whoso maiden name was Sarah N. Ascroft, 
died about two vears before him, but one 
son and four daughters survived. He wrote, 
beginning in 1856, numerous papers on the 
district already mentioned, whicn have ap- 
peared in the publications of various societies, 
and, though in failing health, read his last, 
one about a fortnight before his death ; but j 
his chief work is the volume entitled * Geo- 
logy of the Country round Liverpool/ of ! 
which the first edition was published in 
1863, a second, revised and enlarged, in 1891, 
with an appendix in 1897. As a geologist 
Morton was characterised by accuracy, 
thoroughness, orderliness, and caution. He 
cared more for the advancement of science 
than for his own reputation, and was a worthy 
representative of a class — the painstaking 
and indefatigable local geologists— to whom 
the science is so much indebted.

MOULTON, WILLIAM FIDDIAN 
(1835-1898), biblical scholar, born at Leek, 
Staffordshire, on 14 March 1835, was the 
second son of James Egan Moulton, a Wes- 



leyan minister, who died in 1866, and 
Catherine, daughter of William Fiddian, a 
well-known Birmingham brass-founder of 
Huguenot descent. His grandfather had 
been, like his father, a methodist preacher ; 
and among his ancestors was John Bakewell, 
Weslev's friend. William was educated at 
Woodbouse Grove school, near Leeds, and 
Wesley College, Sheffield, of which he after- 
wards became a master. After having taught 
for a year in a private school at Devonport, 
he in 1854 went as an assistant master to 
Queen's College, Taunton, where he remained 
for four years. While at Taunton he gra- 
duated B.A. with mathematical honours at 
London University in 1854, and M.A. two 
years later, when he was awarded the gold 
medal for mathematics and natural philo- 
sophy. Subsequently he also won the uni- 
versity prizes for Hebrew, Greek, and Chris- 
tian evidences. In 1858 he entered the 
Wesleyan ministry, and was appointed a 
classical tutor at Wesley College, Richmond, 
Surrey. He held that position for sixteen 
years, during which he gave much of his 
time to biblical studies. On the suggestion 
of a correspondent, Dr. Ellicott, afterwards 
bishop of Gloucester and Bristol, Moulton 
published in 1870 a translation of Winer's 
* Grammar of New Testament Greek/ accom- 
panied with valuable notes, in which several 
errors were corrected and not a little original 
scholarship was shown. A new edition 
appeared in 1876, and a complete recast of 
the whole work had been begun under his 
supervision at the time of Moulton's death. 
In the year in which the first edition of 
Winer was issued, Moulton was invited to 
become one of the committee of revisers of 
the New Testament. He was only thirty- 
five, by far the youngest of the company. 
He acted throughout with the Cambridge 
group, who preferred linguistic accuracy to 
literary picturesqueness. Yet he was espe- 
cially responsible for the renderings from 
older English versions which were inserted 
from collations of black-letter Bibles made 
by his wife. He afterwards acted as secre- 
tary to the Cambridge committee for the 
revision of the Apocrypha. 

Meanwhile Moulton had in 1872 been chosen 
at an unprecedentedly early age a member of 
the Legal Hundred of the Wesleyan con- 
nexion. Two years later, in 1874, he was 
appointed t he first head-master of the newly 
founded Leys school, Cambridge, where he 
entered upon his duties in February 1875, 
and remained for the rest of his life. In 
1874 he received the degree of D.D. from 
Edinburgh, and in 1877 was made an hono- 
rary M.A. of Cambridge. While devoting
