The war has taken heavy toll of the household of Mr and Mrs Blaydon, The Knapps, Toddington-road, Leagrave. Official intimation has been received that their second son, Pte C Blaydon, was killed in Action on July 20th. Since the outbreak of war he had been serving with the Bedfordshire Regiment, including the Dardanelles campaign. He was a stretcher-bearer, and had seen considerable active service. The youngest son, Pte A Blaydon, was killed at Suvla Bay on August 15th, 1915, with the 1/5ths. The eldest son, Percy, is serving in France with the RGA, and was recently in hospital suffering from shell shock, but he has now returned to his battery.
A letter was received by his parents on Tuesday morning from his pal:- "I thought it my duty to write to tell you that your son, Pte Cecil Blaydon, is dead. He was killed instantly while we were raiding the enemy's position. He was like by everyone in his company, officers and men, and I was myself a great pal of his.

|18||Avey BLAYDON||15 Aug 1901||MANCHESTER EVENING NEWS: Frauds - Cashier Charged with Embezzlement. Avey Blaydon, a well dressed man, described as a clerk 36 years old, was indicted at the Salford Quarter Sessions this afternoon for having falsified the accounts of the Sweetmeat Delivery Company, his employers and embezzling sums of £6 14s 3d, £7 17s 11d and £2 9s 0d on various dates since April last. The prisoner who for some years had occupied the position of cashier in the local office of the company, formerly resided at Chorlton-cum-Hardy. The case had been postponed from the last sessions owing to the illness of the prisoner whose appearance today suggested he had made a complete recovery. Mr Wharton prosecuted, and Mr Wilkinson and Mr Ambrose Jones defended. The case was a somewhat peculiar one. The prisoner who was in receipt of £2 7s 6d a week was employed in the company's office in Greengate Salford, where the bags of money from the various automatic machines on railway stations, piers etc. in the North of England are received. The Sweetmeat box receipts can be checked by the boxes of sweets taken out, but the weighing machine bags cannot, and they are therefore provided with automatic locks. The moment the bags are taken from the machines the aperture is closed, and cannot again be opened until they get it to the office. In the office another employee used to count the money in the prisoner's presence, and call out to him the amount, prisoner entering the figures on a sheet. The allegation was that the prisoner was in the habit of putting down a lower figure than that called out, and, having the chief control of the money, stealing the difference subsequently. In support of the allegation evidence was given that on one occasion the company's local manager with detectives, secured some bags beforehand, counted the money, and then compared the results with the prisoner's sheet, which showed a large deficiency.
It was stated that when the prisoner was arrested there was £20 in the safe which did not apparently belong to the company. Prisoner wished to take this away, but the officers would not allow him. Mr Wilkinson cross-examined with a view to showing it was possible for other servants of the company to pilfer the bags whilst they were waiting to be counted up. Prisoner went into the witness box and denied that he had stolen a penny of the company's money. Blaydon was sentenced to nine months' imprisonment. Mr Wharton said receipts of machines showed £750 increase since Blaydon's dismissal.

|59||Richard James COUCHER||26 Oct 1889||ILLUSTRATED POLICE NEWS: FUNERAL OF A POLICE INSPECTOR. On Friday afternoon about three hundred men of the S or Hampstead Division of the Metropolitan Police assembled at the Albany-street Station to assist in the funeral obsequies of the late Reserve-Inspector Richard Coucher, who since the age of seventeen has been in the service of his country. Enlisting in the 20th Regiment of Foot, he went through the Crimean campaign, receiving distinction and promotion at the Battle of Alma and the English and Turkish medals for valour. He also saw service during the Indian Mutiny, and at the Relief of Lucknow received a bayonet through his neck, and was invalided home with the rank of colour-sergeant. On leaving the army he joined the C Division of police as a constable. He received an award and certificate from the Royal Society for the Protection of Life from Fire for saving several lives at the risk of his own. He was then promoted to an inspectorship, and for eleven years has discharged his duties at the Albany-street sub-division not only to the satisfaction of the authorities, but to the residents of the district generally. Two years ago he had symptoms of an internal disease, but after a short rest he was enabled to resume duty. In July last he had a relapse, and Dr Maughan, the divisional surgeon, recommended his removal to St Thomas?s Hospital, where he underwent a most painful operation. At the inquest of Saturday Inspector Wells obtained one of the new street ambulances and carefully conveyed his comrade to his residence, 24, Princess-terrace, Primrose-hill, so that he could die in the midst of his family. He did not live many hours, dying early on Sunday morning from cancer at the age of fifty-six. He leaves a widow and eight children to mourn his loss, the ages of the latter ranging from one year to seventeen, and are left totally unprovided for, owing to the fact that, finding he would be unable to do any more duty, the Commissioners awarded him a pension of £97 10s on the 5th inst. In the funeral procession Mr Superintendent Beard, with Chief-Inspector Collis and six mounted patrols, rode directly behind the car which contained the coffin and remains, there being a profusion of floral wreath. The mourning coaches followed, and the whole, preceded by the band of the division, proceeded on the way to St Pancras Cemetery, Finchley, the place of interment, the band breaking off at Hampstead. At the grave there was a large number of persons, mostly tradesmen of the district.|

I suppose you will have already heard about us being in action before this reaches you. We left here last Thursday morning and marched to a place called Chieveley, where we camped one night. At 2am on the 15th we struck camp and paraded to attack the Boers who held a very strong position about four miles in front of us. The Fusilier Brigade were on the right, our Brigade in the centre, and the Irish Brigade on the left. The attack commenced by a bombardment by the Naval Brigade and Artillery, and after about half an hour's shelling the advance was ordered. Fortunately, for our company we were told off as escort to the Navy's big gun, which was very busy trying to silence the enemy's Long Tom which was stationed on the top of a big hill. We had a very anxious time of it throughout the action, which lasted just over six hours. Shells were dropping all round us, and we had to take advantage of all cover available. The Boers seemed to be doing very good shooting, in fact I thought every minute they would be hitting our biggest gun. If they had done so it would have been a very bad job for us, as our field artillery were practically useless. The range was too long for them. The only guns which reached the Boer position were the Navy's. I don't know what they have published in the papers, but you can take it from me that, although we were commanded by Buller, the engagement was a proper defeat for us. The Irish Brigade, under General Hart, were almost cut up. In the first place the Boer position was not properly reconnoitred, and owing to General Hart not knowing where or how they were situated, he marched his whole brigade up in close formation, with the result that, when they got within about 200 yards from the bottom of the hill which was strongly entrenched and lined by some 7,000 Boers they (the Boers) opened fire on our chaps with awful results. Our men were practically marched up to their deaths, without the slightest chance of hitting any of the enemy, who could not be seen in the trenches. When the firing had been going on for a while we, who were in the rear, were surprised to see our chaps retiring in disorder, on one of the scouts passing us we asked him what was the matter. He said our chaps on the left had fallen into a trap and were suffering dreadfully. His words only proved too true, as a few minutes afterwards the wounded began to pass our line. And what a sight it was; words almost fail me when I try to describe it. Some of the poor fellows were covered with blood, and the poor devils who were brought in on stretchers were something frightful to look at. I thank God I was spared in this, our first engagement, and don't care if I never see another. We lost altogether, as far as I can learn, about 60 killed and 500 wounded. But that is only a rough guess. I should say we had at the least 1,500 wounded. The ambulance waggons were bringing in the wounded all night on Friday. We had two wounded, one a sergeant named Flowers and a private named Milligan, who were hit by fragments of a shell which burst just in front of their company, which was trying to cover the retreat of the Irish Brigade. To make matters worse during the retreat, two batteries of artillery which had been driven back by the Boer guns foolishly galloped right behind our ambulance waggons, with the result that the Boers in sending shells after them dropped some of their shells right into our ambulance, upsetting one waggon completely. Some say the Boers wilfully fired on the hospital, but I think if the artillery had been better commanded and taken up a different line of retreat the Boers would not have fired in that direction at all. Whilst this was going on the left of the line our right was very busy driving the Boers back, in which they succeeded to a certain extent. They were trying to get through to Colenso, which is between Chieveley and Ladysmith. They got through right enough, but not without loss, and after getting through they had to fight their way back again, as they could not hold Colenso, having only two days' grub with them. We lost two batteries of artillery on the right, but I don't know how many men. We have now retired on to Frere again to guard the railway bridge here, which has been blown up once by the Boers, which the authorities are afraid the Boers will try to do again. If they succeeded in doing so our supplies would be cut off, and we should not be able to go on up country. It appears now that Buller is trying a different way to get the Boers out of their position. He is now bombarding it, and I can assure you it will take a lot of shells to move them. The rumour is that after three or four days' shelling we shall have to attack the position again. If we do so, and I don't see how we are going to relieve Ladysmith until the enemy are driven back, under the same idea as last Friday it will be a poor look out for us. Fancy having to advance across an open plain with a big ridge of hills in front of you literally swarming with Boers, and our own artillery of little or no use to cover our advance whilst they are dropping their shells right into us. I fancy our Navy gun succeeded in putting one of the Boer big guns out of action, as during the retreat of the Irish Brigade the Boers sent shell after shell amongst them, whilst during the retreat of our regiment not one was fired from it, and we were watching it all the time. Only one of their shells dropped anything like near to our gun, and luckily that was about 100 yards to the rear of us, where it burst without doing any damage. All our wounded have been sent down to Pietermaritzburg, and the dead were buried where they fell. According to what I have heard, there were two of our men found who could not be recognised owing to the Boers having taken every stitch of the poor chaps' clothing, and the sun had turned the bodies black.
We are having a very rough time of it. Have not had six hours sleep since last Thursday. After fighting all day on Friday we were for post duty at night, and on Saturday night we paraded at midnight to march back to this place arriving about 4.30 a.m. We had to wait until 10.30 for a drop of tea, owing to our having no wood to boil the water with. We got our dinner at 4.30, consisting of a pound of bully beef and nothing else except a hard biscuit, not a very substantial fare, is it? The 14th West Yorks are with us. I have met a lot of York chaps. I met one named Watson in the Scottish Rifles who remembered me when I used to play football for Fulford Rovers, and that is a few years ago isn't it? I will write again after the next battle, if I am spared, and try to tell you how we go on. You must not believe all you read in the papers, all the news from here has to go through the Censor's hand.
|61||Richard William COUCHER||23 Jul 1900||YORK HERALD: LETTERS FROM THE FRONT. A YORK SOLDIER AT BOTHA'S PASS. Private R.W. Coucher, 1st Durham Mounted Infantry writes to his father, George Coucher who is a waiter at Harker's Hotel, York, from Standerton:-
You will see by the heading of this letter that we are well into the Transvaal now. We had a big fight at Holman's Nek on the 12th of this month. We of the Composite Regiment, as we are called, under the command of Major Gough, got great praise for the work we did. We were in front on that day and got in touch with the enemy about 11 a.m. We saw them moving about in their position and sent word back to the artillery, who commenced shelling them. In the meantime our section ("The Durhams") were ordered out to reconnoitre a bit of a wood at the foot of the hills the Boers were holding, and a very warm reception we got for going. We had to cross a valley about a mile wide to reach the wood, which proved to be swarming with Boers, who allowed us to get within 800 yards of them before they opened fire on us. They took us completely by surprise for although we knew they held the top of the hills, we did not for a moment imagine they were in force in the wood as well. We quickly turned about when they fired at us, and galloped back as hard as we could and reached a place of safety without a man being hit. How we escaped as we did is a marvel to me, as we had to ride at least a thousand yards and cross a big swamp on the way before we got any cover at all. I have been in some tight corners during the war but I think this, the last one, was as bad as any of them. Our casuality (sic) list on the day's fighting was two captains, named Johnson and O'Brien, and one private, named Anderson, killed. We had to go right round through Botha's Pass to get at the enemy the way we did. It was his right flank we attacked, and in consequence of us going that way and driving them back as we did, our troops at Ingogo were enabled to get through Laing's Nek without firing a shot.
The day after the battle we advanced on to the first town in the Transvaal, named Volksrust, where we stayed two days. (No time to write letters.) After taking over the town and hoisting the old flag on the Town Hall, we went on to Wakkerstroom and took that place over. Leaving there we marched on to here, meeting with no opposition on the way. We are, I believe, to have a few days' rest here. I do not know when we move, or where we are going to; anyhow I don't think we shall have much more fighting until we join Roberts, unless we come across those we drove out of Botha's Pass and Holman's Nek. We have got Strathcona's Horse with us (Canadians). They joined our brigade a few days ago. They joined our brigade a few days ago. They are a fine body of men and are very anxious to get a smack at the Boers. They have not been in action yet and want something to talk about. No doubt they will have a sufficiency of fighting before it is done with. Anyhow, they are quite welcome to take my place. I think I have done enough for my Queen and country. I have been in every battle the Natal force has had. I don't remember the exact number, but if a bar is given for each engagement I shall have enough to make a chain with if I pull through. Our regiment is with us, also the West Yorkshire. I have not come across Major Hepworth, but hear he is with the regiment.
The weather is very trying just now. We are in the middle of winter, and get almost frozen to death every night. We have not got our tents, and have to sleep in the open air the best way we can.

|71||Albert CULPIN||14 Feb 1946||HUNTS POST: PROMINENT ST IVES TRADER. Death of Mr "Dick" Culpin. Prominent St Ives grocer and former Town Councillor, Mr Albert "Dick" Culpin, 4 East St, passed away on Wednesday after a prolonged illness at the age of 70. A native of St Ives and fourth son of the late Mr E [sic] Culpin, blacksmith of the Quadrant, he did not follow his father's business but was apprenticed to the grocery trade with the late Mr J Johnson. Later he started to trade on his own account and successfully conducted the business for the past 40 years. At the request of many townspeople, Mr Culpin offered himself as a Ratepayers' Association Candidate for the Town Council Election of 1933, when controversy raged over the purchase of "Stanley House" as a town hall. He was elected and did invaluable work as Chairman of the Park Committee amongst other duties. On medical advice however, he did not contest the 1938 election. Mr Culpin was the Hon. Sec. for the Addenbrooke's Hospital Scheme at St Ives for several years and as a younger man was in the forefront of any effort for the Hunts and Cambridge Hospitals. Many will remember the popular "6d Pops" which the late Mr Dick Turner ran when Mayor and in which Mr Culpin took such a big lead. He was a prominent Odd Fellow and a former trustee of the St Ives Lodge. He was married to Miss Florence Measures at St Ives Parish Church in 1898, and is survived by his widow and three daughters. As a churchman, few worked harder than he for the Restoration of the church after one of our own aeroplanes crashed into the steeple in 1918, a disaster which meant the raising of some thousands of pounds in addition to the Government grant. During the 1914-18 war he served with the L.D.V. and as far as health would permit did service during the World War II as a member of the Observer Corps. He loved all forms of sport, especially football. He was a Town Club player as a young man.
A large congregation attended the funeral service conducted by the Rev D Marsh at the Parish Church on Saturday. Mr H J Halton was the organist; the music included the hymns "Abide with Me" and "On the Resurrection Morning". "O rest in the Lord" (Elijah) was played as the cortege left the church.

|82||Arthur CULPIN||28 Nov 1903||HUNTS COUNTY NEWS: DEATH OF MR ARTHUR CULPIN. ALARMIST RUMOURS DISPROVED. Mr Arthur Culpin, of St Ives, who is well-known in the County and surrounding districts as an implement manufacturer, was found dead on the road at Fen Drayton early on Thursday morning. At first there were many rumours of foul play, the alarm created in Cambridgeshire recently by several mysterious shooting outrages, leading many to connect his death with them. So far as these reports were concerned, they have happily proved to be unfounded, and though his death will be as widely regretted, it will not have added to it the horror of foul play. How Mr Culpin came to be where his body was found is not known. After attending St Neots market on the Thursday, he went to Bedford, from whence he telegraphed to his mother that if it were foggy, he should not return that night. That was about six o'clock and from that time his movements are unknown. In all probability he came through to Cambridge by the London and North Western Railway, but how he got from Cambridge to where he was found, his brown boots being scarcely soiled, it is impossible to say. There was a sharp frost that night, which would prevent the roads being muddy, or what is more likely, someone may have given him a lift for the greater part of the distance. In any event he was evidently completing the journey on foot to his brother's house at Fen Drayton when he was seized with sudden illness and fell, probably dying immediately. There he was found early on Friday morning by a passing postman.
THE INQUEST The inquest was held at the residence of Mr M. C. Culpin at Fen Drayton, the body having been removed there, on Friday morning. Supt Webb attended the inquest on behalf of the Cambs Constabulary. The following evidence was taken: Millice Charles Culpin identified the body as that of his brother. In answer to the Coroner, he said he did not expect the deceased at his house on Thursday night. Deceased had complained of feeling unwell. He told witness he had a very bad head when witness saw him at Conington on Wednesday evening. Deceased had recently been attended by Dr Mence and was 30 years of age. Witness was unaware that deceased intended going to Cambridge on Thursday evening. In answer to the jury, the witness said that if the deceased travelled to Cambridge from Bedford, after sending off the telegram at six o'clock, he would be unable to catch a train from Cambridge to St Ives. George Goodman, labourer, of Fen Drayton, said that on the morning of the 20th he was going along the road from Fen Drayton, in the direction of Connington, and when he got about three-quarters of a mile from Fen Drayton he saw something lying on the bank. It was too dark to see what it was. He did not stop to look at it closely, and did not think at the time that it was a man. Asked how he now knew it to be deceased, witness said that he afterwards heard that deceased had been found at the spot where he saw something. It was a common thing for him to see travellers lying along there, "Because they could not get anywhere else" he supposed. Upon the Coroner saying he should have thought that witness would have gone and looked at the object he saw, witness said that he had several times seen men on the road. In answer to various questions, witness said he thought it was a man lying on the road, but he could not see distinctly. It occurred to him that something was wrong, but he was rather behind that morning and did not stop. He had not said that if he had known it was a man he should have gone on and got his steam up. What he did say was that he should have gone back and told the constable, but he had no idea of such a thing. The Coroner said he thought the witness's explanation was a very lame one, and it seemed to him he was wanting in common good feeling in passing without enquiring. His expenses would be disallowed. Walter James Chappell, postman, of Swavesey, said on Friday morning he was passing along the road from Fen Drayton to Connington, about ten minutes past seven, and about three-quarters of a mile from Fen Drayton, he saw a man lying on the bank at the side of the road. He went up to him, thinking it was somebody in a fit. He then saw the man was dead. He was lying on his back, with his arms outstretched, his fists clenched, and his head hanging over the bank towards the brook. The body was cold. Witness told Mr Scambler what he had seen. Thomas Richardson, labourer, Fen Drayton, also deposed to seeing the body on the bank as described by the last witness. PC Kitchener said he arrived at the spot at ten minutes to nine. The deceased was lying on his back, his arms extended, his left leg drawn up, his right leg straight and his head thrown back. Froth was issuing from his mouth. The body was quite stiff. There was no sign of a struggle. Dr Mence: you found money on him? Witness: yes, Sir. And his watch? Yes, watch and chain. I found a purse on him containing one sovereign, one half-sovereign, fifteen shillings in silver and sixpence in coppers. Dr Mence, of St Ives, said he had attended deceased during the last few days for a cold, and had on other occasions attended him for heart disease and asthma. There was no doubt that he died of heart disease, probably accelerated by exposure and cold if, as he imagined, he had been walking from Cambridge. He had probably been dead some hours. Deceased was quite well enough to attend to his business in the ordinary way, but not to walk from Cambridge. In answer to Supt Webb, witness added that if deceased had had a ride it would not have been good for him on so cold a night. The Coroner, in summing up, said it was satisfactory to know that the deceased must have been dead when the witness Goodman passed, so that his conduct good not have in any way contribute to Mr Culpin's death. They had every reason to believe that the evidence of the doctor was correct, and that in all probability the deceased died from heart disease accelerated by cold and exposure. The jury returned a verdict accordingly.
The funeral of the late Mr Arthur Culpin took place on Tuesday afternoon at the non-conformist cemetery, St Ives, the Reverend J. Hutchinson conducting the service. The chief mourners were: Mrs Culpin (mother), Millicent [sic], Charles, May, Harry, James, Albert, Maggie and F. Culpin, Mrs Robb and Mrs A. E. Freeman (brothers and sisters), Mr Sam Robb and Miss Worts, Mr A. E. Freeman and Mrs A. Culpin, Mr G. Pink and Mr John Culpin (Stamford), misses H. and L.

|84||Benjamin Ephraim Lamartin CULPIN, F.G.S.||27 Oct 1928||HASTINGS & ST LEONARDS OBSERVER: DEATH OF MR CULPIN. A few weeks ago we published a poem on Battle from Mr Ben E L Culpin, of North Trade-road, Battle, which was widely read. We regret that on Tuesday Mr Culpin passed away at the age of 80, after a short illness. Mr Culpin had spent a strenuous life, particularly in Liberal, Nonconformist and Temperance circles, but since his retirement to Battle some years ago, has become widely known and respected as an enthusiastic geologist, a member of the Battle Choral Society, and a gardener, whose garden was visited with pleasure by many residents in the district. During the present summer Mr Culpin was elected an Honorary Fellow of the Geological Society in recognition of his great services to that science. He was an artist of no mean order, and frequently showed his pictures at exhibitions. Some years ago he published a number of his poems and had prepared a further selection for press at the time of his death. Eight years ago he celebrated his golden wedding and his wife and four children still survive him.|

|87||Charles CULPIN||20 0ct 1826||CAMBRIDGE CHRONICLE & JOURNAL: HUNTINGDONSHIRE QUARTER SESSIONS. William Fuller, a truculent looking fellow as ever held a hand up at a bar of justice, was indicted for destroying on the 18th of July, in a most barbarous manner, an ass, the property of Charles Culpin. Charles Culpin is a blacksmith, living at St Ives. On the 18th of July he saw the ass, which he kept in a hovel in a close: she was then quite well; the next morning his son fetched her up in a dying state. He went to the hovel where he found a fork, the handle of which, for about a foot and a half, was smeared with blood. The ass died in consequence of a wound, given in the most revolting manner. Mr Culpin, on being asked on what terms he had been with the prisoner, said, that some time ago, while he was swearing among Mr Culpin's children, he had sent for a constable, who took him into custody; since which he frequently insulted witness. Mr Swallow was present on the 19th of July, when the prisoner was apprehended on being charged with an atrocious act on Mr Culpin's donkey, he said I never did it, but Joesph Harrop did. On Harrop being sent for, his father came with him, who swore that his son was in bed at half-past seven. Mr Swallow then asked him what further he had to say, when he fell a-crying, and said, if Mr Culpin will forgive me, I will never do it again. On being asked what he had done, he said, I ran the shaft of the fork a foot, or half a foot, up the donkey. Verdict Guilty. Sentence, 14 years transportation.|

It immediately ignited. Finding herself on fire she screamed for assistance, and her mistress, who was sitting in the parlour, immediately ran down the stairs. On seeing her servant enveloped in flame she turned back, and deceased ran to her and clutched her from behind. The mistress hurried along the passage, opened the street door, and went into the thoroughfare, the girl behind her in flames. She would not relinquish her hold. Several men rushed to the scene and, taking off their coats, enveloped her and suppressed the fire.

|120||Frances Millais CULPIN||22 Dec 1934||THE TIMES: PRISONERS OF WAR. Captain Stanley Shaw's suggestion that it would profit a country to treat decently its prisoners of war prompts me to tell of an incident of last summer. While resting by a wood near Freiburg in Breisgau I was given a cheery \"Gluck auf\" by a middle-aged countryman, who talked to me about bees and honey and pine tress till he discovered I was English. Becoming at once more friendly still, he told how he had spent three years in England as a Kriegsgefangener, how well he was treated, how he didn\'t see much of Manchester because of course he was in a prison, but then he was sent to Wales to work in a quarry Dough-hely (Dolgelly?), what a fine country it was, what a good time he had, and finally that he would visit it again if he had the money. Decent treatment of prisoners may help to win a war, but the testimony of this simple countryman shows that it may be worth while for even better reasons.

|121||Frances Millais CULPIN||14 Oct 2003||HAMPSHIRE CHRONICLE: GRAN, 89, IS JAILED. SHE may be 89 but Hampshire great-grandmother Frances Mackeith still fights for what she believes in. Having spent the past 40 years taking part in peace protests across the country, the defiant pensioner was never going to let her age stand in the way of her principles. And yesterday the widow, who is not unused to brushing with the long arm of the law, found herself behind bars for just that. Mrs Mackeith, of Oliver's Battery Crescent, near Winchester, was frogmarched from a court room for refusing to pay a fine imposed by Hertfordshire magistrates last month after she was convicted of obstructing a highway at an anti-war protest in North London in January. The mother of six had originally denied the charge but she was found guilty and ordered to pay court costs and a £90 penalty. She paid the court costs but was yesterday taken to the cells at Basingstoke Magistrates' Court after repeatedly refusing to pay the fine. Last night Mrs Mackeith, who was freed at 2pm, told the Daily Echo: "I'm still hyped up but I expect I shall feel tired later, but I have no regrets and I would do it all again. I am pretty healthy, very obstinate and I have always had a lot of support from my friends and family. "I was taken away by two beefy people and had to sit in a cell for three hours, where I was fed a rather revolting lunch, but I would do it again. "It was pretty unlikely that, at my age, I was going to change my mind. For a long time I have felt that war is wrong." Mrs Mackeith, who also has ten grandchildren and two great-grandchildren, has been a Quaker for 30 years, ever since she moved to Winchester with her late husband. She began demonstrating for world peace in the 1960s and got her first taste for non-violent campaigning during the famous sit-down at Trafalgar Square. Since then she has been arrested four times and apprehended by the Army once on Salisbury Plain. Mrs Mackeith, who arrived at court yesterday carrying an overnight bag, had been warned by magistrates last month that if she did not pay the fine in full, she would face up to seven days in prison. Yesterday when she was asked if she would pay by chairman of the bench Jean Cooper, she adamantly told the court: "No, I don't want to." After 30 minutes' deliberation, Ms Cooper told Mrs Mackeith that the bench found she was wilfully refusing to pay and added: "You will be detained in court cells until court rises today." After the sentence, her friend and fellow Quaker Maureen Pearse, from Upper Swanmore, said: "She was determined she was going to do it. She would have been prepared to go for longer. She has been protesting against war most of her life."|
|122||Frances Millais CULPIN||20 Jan 2012||THE GUARDIAN: My mother, Frances MacKeith, who has died aged 97, spent more than half a century campaigning for peace. She was brilliantly well-read, a doyenne of crosswords, an enthusiastic player of the violin and viola, a great walker and naturalist, the creator of a beautiful wild meadow and the "befriender" of many a refugee and traveller from overseas. She had the gift of friendship with all age groups, was entirely without vanity and had no malice in her heart. In personal matters she might have followed the Quaker guideline "In case of emergency remain silent", but in public matters she was a fearless, determined and outspoken advocate for peace and internationalism. Frances ("Jo" to family and old friends) Culpin was born in Young, New South Wales. Her parents had married while working in Shanghai and were enjoying an extended year-long honeymoon visiting Australia. This link with Australia was to remain strong and she spent four years there during the second world war to keep her two children safe from the London bombing. She was proud of her degree in German from University College London, from where she graduated in 1936. She went to Germany as part of her education, spending time at Tübingen and Heidelberg universities. The close friendships she made there, and her love of German language and literature, remained with her throughout her life. Through her father, Millais Culpin, a distinguished psychologist and early psychotherapist, Jo met Stephen MacKeith, a young psychiatrist, and they married in 1938. They enjoyed an enduring marriage until Stephen's death in 1995. Together they raised six children. Starting with her active participation on the Aldermaston March in the 1950s and anti-Vietnam war demonstrations, Jo went on to join the Quakers in Winchester in the 60s. The local Friends called her "The Peace Woman", regarding her with both respect and apprehension because of her proactive stance. Well into her 80s she travelled considerable distances to take part in demonstrations against nuclear and conventional weapons, including at Faslane, Greenham Common and Aldermaston, where a 90th birthday party was thrown for her. Aged 86 she was briefly imprisoned for demonstrating against the Iraq war. Strengthened by her formidable intellect, quiet authority and a profound sense of humanity, she was an inspiration to many, not least her own family. Her son Jim died in 2007. She is survived by me and my siblings Bill, Lucy, Tom and Nancy.|

DEATH OF CAPTAIN H CULPIN
The death took place yesterday after a long illness of Captain Harry Culpin, licensee of the Prince of Wales, Station-road, Gloucester. He was 71 years of age.
A Leicestershire man, he came to Gloucester in 1920 after a long service in the Army. He joined the Royal Artillery in 1895 and served until 1919 when he retired with the rank of Captain. During the 1914-18 war he was in command of an ammunition column and saw service in France, Italy, Egypt and Salonika. On four occasions he was mentioned in dispatches, one of these being accompanied by the promotion to the rank of captain. During the second world war he was a member of the Royal Observer Corps in Gloucester until the state of his health necessitated his retirement.
When he came to Gloucester he took over as licensee of the Prince of Wales and has remained there until the time of his death.
Initiated into Freemasonry in India in 1912, Captain Culpin on coming to the city shortly afterwards became a joining member of the Zetland Lodge and was the Worshipful Master in 1937. He was also a Past Provincial Grand Superintendent of Works, and a member of the Royal Arch Chaple (sic) and of Mark Master Masons.
He is survived by a widow and two sons and two daughters. The sons are Mr George Culpin, inspector of police at Bristol, and Mr Francis Culpin, on the staff of the petroleum advisory group to General MacArthur in Tokio (sic). Both are old Cryptians. The daughters are Mrs Moss and Mrs Pottinger, both of whom reside at Redmarley.
The funeral has been tentatively fixed for Friday following cremation at Cheltenham.

DEATH FROM A FALL DOWNSTAIRS. - An inquest was held at the Blue Bell Inn, Belmsthorpe, on Thursday, by the District Coroner, E W Phillips Esq, concerning the death of Henry Culpin, a labourer, sixty-five years of age, which took place on Wednesday, under the circumstances narrated below. Mr Wm Smith was foreman of the jury. Caroline Culpin, wife of the deceased, said on Wednesday, May 2nd, between seven and eight o'clock in the evening, her husband and herself were going upstairs to bed, and when he got to the top of the stairs he fell backwards downstairs past her to the bottom. Witness was about half way up at the time. She went to Mrs Ryan, a neighbour, and got her to help her pick her husband up. He was unconcious, and she did not think he again recovered consciousness. He had not moved when Mrs Ryan and herself returned. He seemed in his usual health on that day. Ann Maria Ryan, widow, Belmisthorpe, said on the evening in question Mrs Culpin met her in front of her house between half-past eight and a quarter to nine. She pulled her into the house, and she saw Mr Culpin at the botton of the stairs. she then fetched Mr Dolby to pick him up. She had helped to nurse the deceased since, and was present at his death. He never spoke. Dr St John Stanwell, of Stamford, said he was called to see the deceased on MAy 3rd, and had attended him from then till the date of his death.. He was suffering then from concussion of the brain, which would, under ordinary circumstances, have passed off in a further twenty-four hours or so. Instead, however, he lapsed into a semi-comatose state, with signs of inflammation of the brain, which continued until death. He had made a post-mortem examination to discover the cause of the inflammation, and he found extensive bruising and laceration of the brain, which was the actual cause of death. The brain, otherwise, was normal. Undoubtedly, the injury was the cause of death, and was such as would result from a fall. A verdict of "Accidental Death" was returned.|

|148||John CULPIN||16 Mar 1827||THE LINCOLN, RUTLAND & STAMFORD MERCURY
March 9 & 10, before the Hon.Justice Holroyd
... the Court was adjourned until nine o'clock Saturday, when JOHN CULPIN was indicted for breaking open the shop of Ann Beeston, of Edithweston, and stealing therefrom a quantity of neck and pocket handkerchiefs, flannel, Irish cloth, prints, tea, sugar, gingham, &c., her property. Ann Beeston deposed to the loss of the articles at the time specified, that her doors and windows were fast when she went to bed at 11 in the evening of the 12th of December last; but in the morning a hole had been made through the wall, and the stolen articles were missing. The shop adjoined the house, with which it communicated by a door.
William Hibbert, servant to Mr. Lucas, a clergyman at Edithweston whose house is 30 or 40 yards from Mrs. Beeston?s, went to Mr. Lucas's waggon hovel on the 14th December to fetch some sheep-skins which were on a beam under the roof. As witness threw the skins down, he saw a sack and two hats; he did not meddle with them; had heard of Mrs. Beeston's shop being robbed, he went to her, and returned in about an hour to the hovel. Witness knows prisoner; did not see him on his return; an empty skep had been laid over the things on witness's return, which was not there before. In half an hour witness took the things to Mrs. Beeston's, by order of Capt. Orme and Mr. Bonney.
William Baines, also servant to Mr. Lucas, went on the 14th Dec. to the waggon hovel, for some bones. Prisoner followed witness to the hovel, and on witness' telling him he was going to look for bones, prisoner said he would get up and look; he did so, and witness heard a lumber whilst he was up, as if he moved something. On further examination by the jury, witness stated that prisoner was not going to the hovel before he saw witness go; and seemed to push himself forward to look for the bones.
William Preston, a constable, deposed to the apprehension of the prisoner, and identified several articles of the stolen property, which were produced in court, as being taken from prisoner's house the day it was searched. Ann Beeston and Mrs. Thorp deposed to the same effect; and the jury examined certain of the articles to find the similarity between those found at the prisoner's house and those found in the hovel.
The Rev. R. Lucas corroborated the testimony of several former witnesses, and added that when he saw the prisoner in the gaol, he voluntarily confessed that he had committed the robbery alone, and informed Mr. L. that he had used a colter from one of his (Mr. L.'s) ploughs to open the wall. The prisoner had nothing to say in his defence. The judge summed up the evidence, and remarked that the property being found on the prisoner was prima facie evidence against him, and his own voluntary declaration confirmed it. The jury found the prisoner guilty, and sentence of death was recorded.

LECTURE ON AUSTRALIA BY DR M CULPIN. Last week a lecture was given on Australia by Dr M Culpin in the Congregational School-room, when the chair was taken by the Rev G Fraser Elliott. There was a good attendance, many of the inhabitants wishing to welcome such a distinguished man as Dr Culpin, who is a native of Buntingford, and has achieved success by those sterling qualities that always assert themselves in self-made men. His father was a currier in Buntingford, and eventually the son followed the same occupation at Ware. This work, however, did not deter him from the resolution he had formed on becoming a doctor. He walked the London Hospital for four years, perhaps the four most strenuous years of his life, eventually taking his medical degree, both at London and Edinburgh. For some years he had a practice at Stamford Hill, and about fifteen years ago he emigrated to Brisbane. Here two of his sons have achieved success as doctors, and Dr Culpin himself has been elected a member of the Federal Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia. He is a keen debater, and on the subject of finance is looked upon as an authority. The lecture was listed to with rapt attention, many present having relatives in Australia, asking questions referring to the southern continent, which were clearly answered by Dr Culpin, who showed that though Australia was a self-governing community it could not make treaties or declare war, but was politically connected with Great Britain. He received a hearty vote of thanks at the close, passed by acclamation. To-day (Friday) he starts on his return voyage to Australia.

Moorehouse, Mr W Brookes (Maroochy shire clerk), and Sergeant Russell The Brisbane visitors included Dr Culpin, who planted a tree in memory of his deceased son Clarence.

|165||Millice CULPIN||26 Nov 1938||COURIER-MAIL: BRISBANE DIARY. BRISBANE'S oldest medical man, and once its Federal representative, Dr. Millice Culpin will celebrate his 92nd birthday to-morrow, at his home at Taringa. Dr. Millice Culpin was going to school In England when the Crimean War was being fought, when Macaulay was revising the later volume of his famous History of England, when Thackeray was editing 'Cornhill,' and Dickens was writing 'A Tale of Two Cities.' And he was a medical student in London when the late King George was born at Marlborough House. Soon after he qualified as a doctor, he came to Brisbane and made his home at Taringa, when that suburb was dense bush. He was one of Brisbane's early doctors, and is one of the oldest living medical men in the Commonwealth - perhaps the oldest. In the early years of the Federal Parliament he was induced to nominate for Brisbane, and was returned. But the passions of parties and the frenzy of political campaigns did not appeal to him. He preferred his books and his home, and was not sorry when Brisbane found another member. His son is a medical specialist in Brisbane.|
|166||Millice CULPIN||2 Sep 1941||BRISBANE TELEGRAPH: Late Dr. M. Culpin, Queensland's Oldest Medical Man. Dr. Millice Culpin, one-time Member for Brisbane in the House of Representatives, died yesterday at the age of 94. He was the oldest medical man in Queensland, and it is doubtful whether there was an older member of the profession in the Commonwealth.
The late Dr. Culpin was born and educated in England. He came to Brisbane as a young medical man and settled down at Taringa, in which suburb he had lived ever since, with the exception of the period 1903-1906, which he spent at Melbourne as a member of the Federal Parliament. He was elected as a Labour man when the seat was contested by two Liberals - the late Mr. T. Macdonald Paterson, who was the first representative of Brisbane in that Parliament, and Mr. William Morse, a well-known solicitor. The late Mr. J. F. G. Foxton, a one-time Home Secretary of this State, secured the seat at the following election. The late Dr. Culpin was a great reader and student all his life. He continued in active practice till he was past 70 years of age. He was a keen chess player, and a member of the Rationalist Society. Mrs. Culpin died seven years ago. There survive three daughters - Mesdames Peter Campbell and J. H. Simmonds and Miss D. E. Culpin, B.A.. all of Brisbane - and two sons - Professor Mlllais Culpin, a prominent psychologist, of London, and Dr. Ernest Culpin, of Yernnga. Another son - Private Clarence Howard Culpin was killed in the last war.
|167||Millice CULPIN||2 Sep 1941||THE COURIER-MAIL: Dr Millice Culpin, Queensland's and probably Australia's oldest doctor, and one-time Federal member for Brisbane, died in Brisbane yesterday in his 95th year. He had been in ill-health for some time, but continued to take a keen interest in current events. A native of England, he was educated at Alleynes Grammar School, Stevenage, starting school just three months before the Crimean War broke out. Coming to Brisbane more than 60 years ago, soon after he had qualified as a doctor, he made his home in Taringa, when that suburb was heavy bush. Of scholarly disposition, the late Dr Culpin was keenly devoted to his work, and, except for a trip to England many years ago, he never took a holiday. He retired from active practice 21 years ago. He did not seek active participation in public life, and it was only his keen sense of duty that led him to accept nomination for the Federal Parliament to which he was elected in 1903. He probably welcomed the opportunity of relinquishing Parliamentary life which came with defeat in 1906. Chess was one of his pastimes. He was a steadfast member of the Rationalist Society of Queensland. He is survived by two sons and three daughters - Professor Millais Culpin, noted psychologist, practising in London, and Dr E Culpin, of Brisbane; and Mesdames Peter Campbell and J H Simmonds and Miss D E Culpin, BA, of Brisbane. One son, Private Clarence Howard Culpin, was killed in action in the last war. Dr Culpin's wife died in 1934. The funeral will leave his late residence, Stanley Terrace, Taringa, this afternoon for the Toowong Cemetery.|

The menu included a joint roast beef, weighing 471bs, supplied by Mr. Hodson, of Elsworth, with an abundant supply of Yorkshire puddings and vegetables. The dessert was really a sight. There were pines, grapes, walnuts, all of choicest and best. The grand duchess pears, and apples from Novia (sic) Scotia were especially magnificent. The supply of confectionery was also unbounded. The beverages were light, plentiful, and of the best; "Bass's No. 1" Galloway's sparkling ale; Encore whisky, surrounded with every possible description of mineral water; cigars and tobacco followed in due order. The post-prandial proceedings were opened by the host, who, in hearty, earnest fashion, welcomed his employés on that occasion. This was suitably responded to Mr. Holley, on behalf the staff, when song and toast followed in rapid succession till 11 o'clock. Mr. Culpin sang one of his best songs in his usual style. For some time after this the roads to Fenstanton and Hemingford were stirred by merry songs from happy throats. The extent and success of this event would lead one to think that the good old times of harvest suppers are returning.|

In the early hours of Monday morning an outside wall at Mr M C Culpin's implement warehouse, in the Quadrant, was partially blown in, and the centre window entirely demolished.|
|171||Millice Campbell CULPIN||28 Jan 1899||CAMBRIDGE DAILY NEWS: THE SUICIDE OF MR M C CULPIN AT ST IVES. Inquest to-day. The inquest on the body of Mr M C Culpin was held at the Golden Lion Hotel, St Ives, this morning by Mr C B Margetts, Coroner for the Hurstingstone division of the County. Mr W Wheatley was foreman of the jury.
Mrs Naomi Culpin (deceased's widow), who was very much affected, said she was the widow of Millice Campbell Culpin, of St Ives, implement maker. He was 57 years of age last February. Deceased had suffered from asthma lately and pains in the top of his head. He had been in very depressed spirits, and she could not get him to converse much. He had never spoken of making away with himself, and had not done anything irrational. Deceased came down about 7.30 on Friday morning, and witness made tea for him. Witness got up about 6.30, and left him in bed. Deceased stood and drank a cup of tea, and had no other breakfast, as he had to be very particular what he ate and drank as he was supposed to have diabetes. He left the house about 7.40, and witness thought he might have gone with his son to feed the ponies, but when he got back she found deceased had not been with him. The little girl was ready for school, and her son went to see if he could see him coming along the lane. Witness went up into the warehouse to see if she could see deceased coming along the street, and she then saw him hanging from the beam. She called their man, Alfred Crouch, who came, and she went away.
Alfred Couch said he resided at Fenstanton, and was employed as a wheelwright by the deceased. About 8.30 on Friday morning he was called by Mrs Culpin. He was at the time working in the shop at the further end of the yard. Mrs Culpin told witness that deceased was either hanging on something or had caught on something. He went upstairs to the upper warehouse, and there found deceased hanging from a beam with a cord round his neck. The cord (produced) was about 2½ feet long, and had a loop at one end. There was an iron ladder to the beam close by where deceased was hanging. With the help of Jeffs, a fellow workman, who went up with witness, he cut the body down and laid it on the ground. The rope was tight around the neck, and witness at once loosened it. Dr Grove was sent for, and arrived in a few minutes and examined the body and pronounced that life was extinct. The hands and face were quite warm. Witness then went back to his work.
By the Foreman: It was the usual place for the ladder to stand, but he had not seen the rope.
Mr W H Mence, registered medical practitioner, of St Ives, said he had attended deceased for a great many years as the family doctor. In August, 1896, he discovered that deceased was suffering from diabetes, and had suffered ever since. He had not seen him professionally for about five months. The tendency of this disease was to produce low spirits, and the headache complained of was a symptom of the disease. Deceased also became very thin. The tendency of the disease was to produce physical disability and nervous and mental disturbance.
The Coroner summed up, and said it was very sad to have to hold an inquest on the body of such a respected fellow townsman. The issue was for them to find whether deceased was in an unsound state of mind or whether he destroyed himself by wilful intent.
The jury agreed that deceased was of unsound mind when he committed the act, and returned a verdict of "Suicide during temporary insanity."

Mrs Ruth Scott, sister of Viscount Downe and the wife of Mr 'Archie' Scott, the bookmaker, was killed in a road accident near Six Mile Bottom last night. Mrs Scott, who lived at The Old Rectory, Holme Hale, near Swaffham, Norfolk, was in a van which was involved in a collision with a lorry along the main London-Newmarket Road. Mrs. Scott died instantly and it was some time before firemen from Cambridge , assisted by police and other rescue workers, managed to free her body from the wreckage. The accident blocked the road for about an hour and heavy breakdown equipment was called for to remove the lorry. It is believed there was a greyhound in the back of Mrs Scott's van and that the animal ran off shortly after the accident. The lorry was driven by Mr James Beveridge, of 110 Silvermere Road, Catford, London SE6. Mrs Scott, who was born in 1907, married Mr Archibald C Scott, of Eredine, Argyllshire, at Hillington, near Sandringham, in Norfolk, in December 1937. She has four sons and a daughter. Her brother, Viscount Downe, whose seats are at Wykeham Abbey, Scarborough, and Danby Lodge, Danby, Yorkshire, is the tenth holder of the title. OLD ETONIAN.

W.H. writes:- The tragic death of Ruth Scott in a motor accident on November 28 has brought great sorrow to very many diverse people. No one was more beloved in all the differing worlds in which she moved, and no one will be more missed. She had a quick inquiring, tireless mind, thrilled with new ideas and intellectually capable of absorbing them; a deep sensibility so that she was full of real understanding and sympathy for others; and gaiety, charm and a marvellous wit so that being with her was always, even for her oldest friends, a special and inspiring experience. She loved life, and in so many different forms -in poetry and books, painting and sculpture (in both of which she was a very gifted artist), in hunting, coursing, racing, animals, and the countryside, and, most of all, in her home and family. All the many things she did were done with style and panache, though never with airs or arrogance: and she will be mourned as a true friend by people in every walk of life. She was so completely alive and so life-enhancing that it is almost impossible to believe she is dead; when we do realize it we shall find that an irreplaceable light has gone out.|

Pte Dellar was badly wounded in the chest in the early stages of the Great Push, and when taken to the base hospital in France was in so dangerous a state that his wife and father were wired for. They proceeded at once to France, where they had the gratification of finding the young soldier much better, and left him with every hope of recovery. Last Thursday a fateful wire came, and Mrs Dellar with her father in law proceeded at once to Windsor. The deceased was only 27 years of age. For a considerable period he had held a confidential position in the offices of Messrs Cranfield and Wheeler. He was an enthusiastic member of the VTC and went into khaki with the Hunts Cyclists, being subsequently transferred to the Royal Warwickshire Regt.

|190||George Housden DELLAR||15 Dec 1916||HUNTS POST: FUNERAL OF PTE GEORGE DELLAR. Business in St Ives was completely at a standstill during the interment of Pte George Housden Dellar, whose death from wounds we recorded last week, which took place on Friday afternoon. The first part of the service was held in the Free Church, where there was a crowded congregation. Among those present were: The Mayor (Coun W S Harrison JP), wearing the robes and chains of office, Ald H F Corbett and E Anderson, Councillors G Kiddle, J H Ingram and Cyril Watts, Mr G D Day (Town Clerk), Messrs G Ketton, A Makeham, L Gregson (representing Messrs Cranfield and Wheeler), G Holgen, E W Bullman, S Tobb, C Ingram, F Norris, L Watts, F W Radford, A Baldwick, H Anderson, junr, and Jas.

The firing party was composed of: Batt. Sergt. Major Marsters (in command), Sergts W Simpson, A Ashton, and Johnson, Corporals G E Knights, Ivatt, Hammerton and Godfrey, Lance-Corporals Doyle, Culpin and Abbott, Ptes James Makeham and Howard, and Corpl Bugler Masters. The other members of the Volunteer Corps present were under the command of Capt Warren and Lieut Ruston. The bearers were members of the Corps, vis: Corpl. Cross, Ptes Willmer, York, Horton, Nicholls and Allen, whilst Corpl O J Kuhm, Pte O'Brien, Humphrey, Freeman and Hodge, of the Hunts Cyclists, acted as an escort. The mourners were: Mrs Dellar (widow), Mr George Dellar (father), Mr H Dellar (brother), Miss D Dellar (sister), Miss M Dellar (sister), Mrs H Williams (sister-in-law), Miss L Culpin (aunt), Mr B Harlick (brother-in-law), Mrs H Coombs (sister-in-law), Mrs Harlick (mother-in-law), Mr & Mrs W Dellar (uncle and aunt), Mr & Mrs J Dellar, of March (uncle and aunt), Miss S Dellar, Cambridge (aunt), Miss J Dellar, Oakington (aunt), Mrs H Smith, Oakington (aunt), and Corpl. Vic White, ASC (a personal friend of the deceased). As the people were assembling the organist (Miss N Ketton) played funeral music. The service was conducted by the Rev. A E Hooper who, after the lessons and prayers, gave a short address. Mr Hooper mentioned the many years deceased had been connected with the Church, and pointed out that many of their brothers had laid down their lives, and their bodies had been committed to the earth with no memorial service being held. Ninety-three of their congregation had joined the colours to serve their country, and ten had given their lives. Of these ten only two had memorial services held for them in that Church. Therefore, he felt that they should keep in memory that afternoon their brothers who had gone vis: Ivor Day, G Dellar, F Dunkling, W Dighton, W G Edward, L Geeson, D Grey, C Howard, Tom Maile and Cyril Walker. Many of the congregation were moved to tears as Mr Hooper read these names. At the conclusion of the service Miss Ketton played "O rest in the Lord." On the Market Hill a large crowd of sympathisers congregated to see the procession move off for the Cemetery, and along the route the townspeople lined each side of the roadway. The firing party led, then came the Mayor and the Corporation, and others from the Church, the wounded soldiers, with Lieut. E Kiddle at the head, the Volunteers, the hand-bier on which rested the coffin covered with the Union Jack, and lovely wreaths, and the mourners. The final rites were performed by Mr Hooper, the firing party fired three volleys, and the Last Post was sounded by Bugler Masters. The scene was most impressive. After the mourners had taken the last look in the grave, those present passed reverently by the grave. Mr John Skeeles carried out the funeral arrangements. The inscription on the coffin read: George Housden Dellar, Died Dec. 4th 1916, Aged 27 years. The floral tributes sent were handsome, those with cards reading:- "In ever loving memory of my darling husband", from his broken-hearted wife; "To our dear George" from his loved ones at home; "In loving memory" from Mother and Ben; "George, sincere sympathy", from Deb and Miriam (Canada); "George, in loving memory", from Merse and Harold; "In affectionate remembrance", from Kitty and Harry; "In loving memory" from his sorrowing Aunties and Uncles; "With loving memory", from Uncle Jack and Aunt Lizzie; "With deepest sympathy" from Mr and Mrs G G G Wheeler; "With deepest sympathy" from George F Blackburn (Bradford)|

|193||Alexina Johnston DUNLOP||3 Nov 1892||GLASGOW HERALD: THE WRECK OF THE ROUMANIA - A TOUCHING COINCIDENCE - the obituary of the Herald yesterday had doubtless a tender significance for elderly citizens, containing, as it did, the names of Alexina (Ina) Dunlop, 'granddaughter of the late Henry Dunlop of Craigton', and of Malcolm Buchanan Fleming, 'grandson of the late John Fleming of Claremont.' They probably remembered that over the heads of these two most excellent grandfathers a somewhat furious municipal tempest, legal and impersonal, raged in glasgow many years ago for the space of full two months, and now amidst the warring elements, and in a distant sea, a much-loved grandchild of each has gone down together. These grandchildren, we believe, did not know each other until they met on board the 'Rumania'. Mr Dunlop of Craigton and Mr Fleming of Claremont were both Magistrates of Glasgow, and both were marked out for the Lord Provostship in November 1837. It was known sometime before election day that the support to each would be exactly equal, and, therefore, that the chairman must decide the election by his casting vote. The question of the chairmanship on election day was raised. The retiring Lord Promised (Mr Mills), supported by Mr Fleming's friends in the Council, claimed the chair and right to install his successor, whilst the Senior Magistrate (Bailie Paul), supported by Mr Dunlop's friends in the Council, and also by the Town-Clerk (Mr Reddie), claimed the right to preside. There were therefore to chairman, with opposite predilections on the burning question. The vote was equal, a casting vote was thrown into each scale, and both gentlemen in turn were declared duly elected and accepted the office. Neither was permitted by his friends to retire. The question was therefore carried to the Court of Session, and on 16th December following the Second Division unanimously decided that Mr Dunlop had been legally elected Lord Provost. Probably no lasting personal estrangement was thus created between the two gentlemen, but the meeting of the grandchildren on board the Roumania, and the sad fate which carried both to where there is 'no more sea,' has in it something of genuine pathos.|

|199||Henry DUNLOP||11 May 1867||GLASGOW HERALD: DEATH OF HENRY DUNLOP ESQ., OF CRAIGTON
It is with much regret that we announce the death of Mr Henry Dunlop of Craigton, which took place yesterday in Edinburgh. Sprung from an old and well known family Mr Dunlop has always maintained a prominent position among Glasgow manufacturers. In early life he took an active part in municipal business, serving in the Town Council, and filling for the usual term, some eight and twenty years ago, the office of Lord Provost. About the same time he manifested a warm interest in the ecclesiastical controversy which led to the Disruption. When matters began to wear towards a crisis he took a somewhat conspicuous part in the proceedings of the Assembly, and, it may be remembered, seconded the motion for the suspension of the Strathbogie ministers. He also contested the Parliamentary representation of Bute in the Liberal interest, with the ulterior view of forwarding a non-intrusion policy in the Church. In this enterprise, however, he was unsuccessful. For many years Mr Dunlop had a considerable share in the management of the Edinburgh and Glasgow Railway, acting as deputy-chairman of the Board of Directors down to the date of the amalgamation with the North British Company. He likewise took a leading part in the business of the Glasgow Chamber of Commerce, and during the period of distress occasioned by the failure of the cotton supply he was assiduous in his labours as a member of the Relief Committee. Of late years Mr Dunlop has pretty much withdrawn himself from public life; quite recently, we understand, he has spent some time in America. His death will leave a blank in our community, where he was generally esteemed as a man of amiable manners, of high integrity, and good general information.
