|10||Avey BLAYDON||15 Aug 1901||The 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 open 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.

|44||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.|
|45||Richard William COUCHER||20 Jul 1900||YORK HERALD: SOLDIERS' LETTERS. AN OLD YORK FOOTBALLER AT THE TUGELA. Private R.W. Coucher, of the Durham Light Infantry, son of George Coucher, who is a waiter at Harker's Hotel, York, writes to his father as follows:
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?

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.

|53||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.
The chief mourners were Mrs Culpin (widow), Mr & Mrs G James, Miss I Culpin, Mr & Mrs R Anderson (sons-in-law and daughters), Mr D James (grandson), Mr H Culpin, Ely (brother), Mrs C Culpin, Swavesey (sister-in-law), Mrs Smart, Swavesey, Mrs McDermott, Fen Drayton (nieces), Mr A Culpin, Swavesey, Mr W Robb, St Ives, Mr W Barratt, Cambridge (nephews), Mr F Curtis, Swavesey, Mr G Thomas, Gloucs, Mrs G Brookbanks, Mr & Mrs G Avery, PC & Mrs A Mason, Mr & Mrs Uteridge, Miss Dring (friends).

|55||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. Culpin, Mrs Barrett and Miss Barrett (Newmarket), Mrs J. E. Freeman, and the employees of the firm. Others in the procession were: Messrs J. R. Ingram, C. Storey, A. Sandifer, H. Anderson, W.

Fordham, C. Walker, H. Armes and R. Wilkinson. Messrs Bryant and Bryant carried out the funeral arrangements. Messrs Skeeles Bros were the undertakers.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

On Saturday evening an indication of the wind-up of cropping operations, a harvest supper was held at the Woolpack Farm, belonging to Mr. J. E. Freeman, who has a large wholesale establishment in London. There were close upon 40 present, including Mr. M. Calpin (sic) and one or two other representative tradesman. Supper was served in one of the barns, which had been gaily and lavishly decorated for the occasion. Mr. Freeman presided, while Mr. Holley, manager and agent, occupied the vice-chair. 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 Hemingfotd 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.|
|82||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."

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.

The Hon. 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.
Mr 'Archie' Scott, an Old Etonian, has been an 'on the rails' bookmaker at all the important race meetings for the last 35 years.

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.

|95||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.

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)|

|97||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.|

|104||Henry DUNLOP||15 May 1867||GLASGOW HERALD: CHAMBER OF COMMERCE
A meeting of the directors of this Chamber was held yesterday ? Mr Ramsay, of Kildalton, presiding.
THE LATE MR DUNLOP, OF CRAIGTON
The Chairman said ? the first thing we have to bring under your notice is an event which has caused a blank in our directorate since last meeting. We have had occasion recently to sorrow for the loss of many eminent citizens of Glasgow ? men distinguished by their zeal in advancing works of Christian beneficence, and equally so for their efforts to promote the material and moral welfare of our city, and of the human race in every corner of the globe. This is not the place specially to allude to those gentlemen; but I think that on an occasion like this it is quite suitable that we should record our expression of sorrow for the loss of Mr Dunlop, one who has been a member of this Chamber for the long period of 37 years, and during that long period has, with the exception of a few years, been in the direction. Mr Dunlop was elected chairman of this Chamber in 1841, subsequently in 1850, and again in 1862, showing that the Chamber has not only desired to do him honour, but that they believed him to deserve their confidence. I think that everyone who has had the opportunity of meeting with Mr Dunlop in the business of this Chamber must, as I have done, have entertained a sincere respect for his character, and for his zeal in everything beneficial to our association. I understand that during the long period of his association with the Chamber he has taken a very special interest in the development of our trade with India; and we can all remember how much he did very recently in promoting the French Treaty, a treaty from which we are not only to derive advantage in our commerce, but which may be expected to promote peace among the nations of the earth. Then we have also in our recollection his efforts on the occasion of the cotton famine in bringing before the public the claims of those who were in need, and by the best means of supplying the blank made in our market by the lack of supplies. As to banking again every one who heard him speak on that question, whether concurring with him or not, must have been struck by the clearness of his views; and that his views were in accordance with the opinions of the Chamber we are all well aware. I think, therefore, that on the removal of one who has so long gone in and out amongst us it is becoming that we should record an expression of sorrow for his loss and of sympathy for his bereaved relatives. Mr Ramsay concluded by moving accordingly. The motion was agreed to.

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.

We sincerely lament to learn that Mr Henry Dunlop of Craigton, after leaving the hustings on Monday, where he nominated Mr Hastie, became suddenly unwell, and only succeeded in reaching Mr Knox's counting house, John Street, when his illness assumed the appearance of an apoplectic attack. He was removed to his residence without delay, and attended by Dr Lawrie, who, after the application of energetic measures, was enabled to report that there was no immediate danger.

Mr Hall, the prosecutor, stated that on Monday the 24th of February last, in consequence of information he received from his servant Hinton, he went to his dovecote. The door was open but did not appear to have been forced. The pigeons were very much disturbed. Hinton found a sack containing eight dead pigeons and two live ones. He went in search of the robbers, and saw two lads in slop-frocks, about the size of the prisoners. On the Thursday following, they sent to prosecutor, who went to a house in the village. Witness produced the sack, and prisoners said that was the sack in which they took the pigeons out of the dovehouse. They confessed the fact to the Rev. Wm. Leworthy, the magistrate, who used no threat or promise. It appears that these two prisoners were encouraged in their depredations by two men in the neighbourhood, of the names of Taylor and Sanderson, who bought pigeons obtained in this manner at a penny a piece. The prisoners were found guilty, and sentenced to six months imprisonment.|

On Saturday evening an indication of the wind-up of cropping operations, a harvest supper was held at the Woolpack Farm, belonging to Mr. J. E. Freeman, who has a large wholesale establishment in London. There were close upon 40 present, including Mr. M. Calpin (sic) and one or two other representative tradesman. Supper was served in one of the barns, which had been gaily and lavishly decorated for the occasion. Mr. Freeman presided, while Mr. Holley, manager and agent, occupied the vice-chair. 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 Hemingfotd 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.|

The funeral of Mr J E Freeman, who died at Fulbourn on Saturday, took place at Hemingford Grey General Cemetery yesterday (Thursday) afternoon. The sight was impressive. Gathered in the neatly-kept little ground were a large assembly of mourners, old friends and relatives from near and far, representatives of the branches of RB Webster Ltd, and farm hands formerly employed by Mr Freeman.

The death occurred at the Yeatman Hospital, Sherborne on Friday, following an operation, of Dr Hedley Charles Davys Golledge, of Pickett Witch, Yeovil, veterinary surgeon and Veterinary Inspector since 1911 for the Ministry of Agriculture.

Sidney Greenall, aged 16, a labourer, and Frederick Webb, aged 49, a brewer of Landbeach, were summoned for cruelty illtreating a mare, the former by working it, and the latter by causing it to be worked, while in an unfit state, at Waterbeach, on the 11th November. Both defendants pleaded not guilty. PC Brooke said that he saw the defendant Greenall on the day in question in charge of a horse attached to a cart, laden with about a ton and a half of coal, in Station-road, Waterbeach. His attention was drawn to the mare by a sack which was under the saddle, and he examined the animal, with the result that he found a large open wound upon the back under the saddle. The flesh was very much inflamed, and blood and matter were oozing from the wound. He produced the sack, upon which was a large blot of blood, The lad Greenall informed witness that his master knew of the condition of the mare, and that he told him to put the sacking over it, to prevent chafing. Subsequently witness saw Webb, who admitted that the horse had had a bad back for over a week. PS Salmon corroborated. Oliver Driver, Inspector of the RSPCA, said he examined the horse two days after the discovery, and found the wound as described, very much inflamed. The defendant Webb said the wound was a new one, and he did not think it was very bad. A fine of 10s and costs, was imposed on Webb, and 2s 6d without costs, upon Greenall.|

Mr W H Ingle, school attendance officer, produced a certificate showing that the boy was absent fm school on April 6th, and state that he saw the lad working on the defendant's farm on that day. The defendant had been warned on several occasions for employing not only that boy, but one or two other boys. The defendant stated that he clothed and maintained the boy, and he thought it was a pity he could not employ him now and again. A fine of 10s and costs was imposed.

|134||William Dickerson GREENALL||2 Dec 1899||CAMBRIDGE DAILY NEWS: Disastrous Fire at Landbeach. Four Cottages, Shop, and Stable Burned to the Ground. SEVERAL HUNDRED POUNDS DAMAGE. Cambridgeshire villages have been prolific in fires of unusual magnitude during the twelve months, and Landbeach has now earned the distinction of having had a disastrous fire within its limits. In the absence of any soul-stirring events in the quiet little village, the fire, which occurred in the early hours of Friday morning, is a big event in its history, and with some reason for four cottages, a blacksmith's and wheelwright's shop, and a stable were burned completely out. The cottages, situate on the main road in the centre of the village, were the property of Mr Phillip Papworth, of Histon, and were occupied by Thomas Bowers, James Wagstaffe, J. Pont, and Widow White. Adjoining them was blacksmith's and wheelwright's shop, occupied by Mr William Greenall, licensee of the Red Cow public house. Luckily, as it turned out, building space in Landbeach is not at a premium, and the cottages and shop formed
A LITTLE GROUP by themselves, with a space of at least ten yards between them and any other dwelling house, otherwise the damage would assuredly have been much more extensive. How the fire was caused is, and is likely to remain, a matter of conjecture. Certain it is that it originated in the wheelwright's shop, and spread from there to the thatch of an adjoining cottage. About a quarter past three on Friday morning Mrs Bowers was awakened by her two-year-old daughter, who was unwell and very restless. There was a suspicion of smoke about the bedroom, and a smell of burning material. Mrs Bowers roused her husband with the words "I believe something's on fire." In a very short time the belief grew into a certainty, for the smoke in the room grew more dense, and Bowers slipped on his nether garments and slippers and descended the stairs. Though, as far as he could see, nothing was burning in his own house, there was a deal of smoke, and, running upstairs, he leaned out of the window, when he saw the shop in flames. Wagstaffe's cottage was the nearest to the burning building, and in a trice he and the other cottagers were informed of their danger. A scene of
WILD EXCITEMENT followed. The inhabitants of the cottages, so rudely awakened from their sleep, rushed into the road, some clad only in their night attire, others in whatever garments came nearest to hand. All the villagers were soon aroused by the shrieking of "Fire! Fire!" While the alarm was being given the fire was taking a good hold of the thatched roofs of the two nearest cottages with awful rapidity, and though some attempt was made to check it by pouring buckets of water on the flames, the impossibility of saving the buildings was soon recognised, and attention was turned to getting as much of the furniture out as possible. Wagstaffe's cottage was consumed with such rapidity that only a small portion of the domestic articles could be got out, and within a quarter of an hour of the alarm being given the roof fell in. Bowers, Pont, and Mrs White were slightly more successful in the matter of saving the furniture but in each case many articles had to be left behind, involving
SERIOUS LOSS TO THE COTTAGERS. The buildings were lath and plaster, and in an incredibly short time, the four cottages and the shop were one huge bonfire, making a spectacle, which the inhabitants speak of with something approaching awe, so impressive was it on that still, cold morning. The stable, situated at the rear of the houses, was embraced in the fire, but fortunately Mr Greenall's horse was taken out in time. There are other outbuildings near at hand, and the portions of these were saturated with water to such an extent that they escaped serious damage. No fire brigade was sent for; in fact, it was quite useless for before it could have arrived the cottages, shop, and stable were a mass of ruin. The morning broke on a strange scene. The band of villagers assembled in the road were watching the fire complete its work. All the roofs had long since fallen in, walls had toppled over, the wooden shop was level with the ground, and all that remained were the bare chimney stacks, surrounded by a mass of burning material. Supt. Webb, of Cambridge, and other members of the county constabulary had been sent for, but could give no assistance.
THE HOMELESS COTTAGERS
were received into the houses of relatives and neighbours. It is a singular, and perhaps fortunate, fact that only one child, the daughter of Bowers, was living in the houses. There is a firm belief that had it not been for this child's illness, and the mother's premature awakening in consequence, some of the unfortunate ones would have been burned in their beds. There is a great lack of cottage accommodation in Landbeach, and those turned out by the fire can nowhere find other houses to live in. One of the men said, lugubriously to our reporter, "There ain't no bloomin' houses for us at all here." No precise estimate of the damage has yet been made but is reckoned at several hundred pounds, and is covered by insurance.

THREE SHOT DEAD. Tragic Fate of Father, Mother, and Son. Hearing reports as of a motor misfiring, neighbours entered the premises of Mr F. Harrison (46), butcher, St Ives, Hunts, yesterday, and found Mrs Harrison lying dead on the floor of the kitchen. Mr Harrison and his son, Geoffrey (18), lay dead in the yard. A sporting gun found near the father contained two empty cartridges, and two other discharged cartridges were found by the police. Mr Harrison served abroad during the war. Harrison's second son, Bobby (14), was away on an errand, and the tragedy was discovered on his return. Frederick Harrison, the husband, was the son of a former Mayor of St Ives. His aged parents are still alive.

WAR WORRIES REVEALED AT INQUEST. That Frederick Harrison, 46, butcher, St. Ives Hunts shot his wife and elder son and committed suicide while insane was the verdict at the inquest on the three persons on Tuesday. Bobbie, aged 11, the only survivor of the family, said he saw Geoffrey lying by the side of his cycle, wounded the head. "I shouted for help," said Bobbie, "and came towards the house calling 'mum.' I saw her lying the ground." Dr. Henry Harrison said his brother contracted malaria in the war. He was not allowed to return to civilian life for a year after the war, and preyed his mind. He felt his business was slipping away.
Exmouth & Plymouth Gazette, 6 July 1927:
ST. IVES TRAGEDY. MURDER AND SUICIDE. A verdict that Harrison committed suicide while temporarily insane, and murdered his wife and son was recorded at an inquest held at St. Ives, Huntingdonshire, yesterday, Frederick Harrison, 46, a local butcher, Florence Beatrice, 39, his second wife, and Geoffrey, 17, his elder son, who were found shot dead at their home at St. Ives Monday. Dr. Henry Harrison, with whom sat Bobbie, aged 11, the youngest son, and only survivor of the family, said his brother Frederick served during the war in Italy, Mesopotamia, Egypt, and Salonica. Before the war he had good health, but contracted malaria, and when returned he felt his business was slipping away from him. He was not allowed to return civilian life for year after the war, and that preyed on his mind. Mrs. Ada Cooper, whose house overlooks Harrison's shop, said she heard two shots, and Harrison said I have shot a rat and laid it on the roof." Then there were two more shots. The Coroner called Bobbie Harrison to his side, and in a low voice read the statement made by the boy. Bobbie said his father sent him for some milk. When he returned, he saw Geoffrey lying by the side of his cycle, with part of his head missing. "I shouted for help." said Bobbie, "and came towards the house calling Mum? I saw her lying on the ground." Stating that he thought details should kept as brief as possible, the Coroner said tragedies had often occurred through people brooding over other tragedies which had taken place previously.
Nottingham Evening Post, 4 July 1927:
WIPED OUT. EX-SERVICEMAN TRIPLE SHOOTING TRAGEDY. triple tragedy occurred at St. Ives, Hunts., to-day. A report of a motor-cycle backfiring was heard on the premises of Mr. Fred Harrison, a butcher, and on the neighbours entering found Mrs. Harrison lying dead the floor of the kitchen, and Mr. Harrison and his son Geoffrey, aged about 18, lay dead in the yard. A sporting gun found near the father contained two empty cartridges, and two other discharged cartridges were found the police. Mr. Harrison served abroad during the war. Harrison's second son, Bobbie, aged 14, was away from home at the time. He had been sent on an errand, and the tragedy was discovered on his return. Frederick Harrison, the husband, 46 years age, was the son of a former mayor St. Ives. His aged parents are still alive. His second wife, Florence Gertrude, the deceased woman, 28. Harrison was popular man at St. Ives. He took over the business from his father on being demobilised after serving overseas. His family are described being "the essence of respectability.'' One of his brothers is a doctor and another a solicitor. Neighbours are at a loss explain the tragedy. The circumstances point to the husband firing the gun. Geoffrey's body was found near his motor cycle. The youth was in the habit of motor cycling to business about eight o'clock every morning, and as it was at about that time that shots were heard, no undue comment was excited because Geoffrey's machine usually produced noises not unlike exploding cartridges.

A man, his wife and a son were found shot dead at St Ives, Hunts, yesterday morning. Hearing a shot fired, neighbours entered the premises of Mr Frederick Harrison, a butcher, and found Mrs Harrison lying dead on the floor of the kitchen and Mr Harrison and his son Geoffrey lying dead in the yard. A sporting gun found near the father contained two empty cartridges, and two other discharged cartridges were found by the police.
The son, Geoffrey, appears to have been shot as he was about to leave the premises to go to his work at a local garage. The shot had penetrated a large wooden door.
Frederick Harrison, the husband, age 46, was the son of a former Mayor of St Ives. He saw service in the artillery in Mesopotamia, Italy, and Salonika, and had been a great sufferer from malaria since his return. His aged parents are still alive. His second wife, Florence Gertrude, the dead woman, was 28, and Geoffrey Harrison, her stepson, 17. A younger son, the only surviving, went on an errand a few minutes before the shooting. At that time, according to the boy, things seemed normal in the household. Coming back he discovered what had happened and fled to a relative in the town.
The Coroner has not yet fixed the time of the inquest.

|141||Daisy HOPKINS||11 Dec 1891||CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENT PRESS: THE SPINNING HOUSE. THE DOINGS OF THE WEEK. PRESS OPINION. APPLICATION FOR HABEAS CORPUS. The trial at the Spinning House last week, which was commented on in the Independent Press, has been the principal topic of conversation in the town, and the progress of events has been watched with interest. The most important development has been the application for habeas corpus in London, and the hearing of which is fixed for to-day (Friday). There has been considerable comment in the press, and a summary of the opinions is given below.
THE SALVATION ARMY TAKES ACTION. The Social Wing of the Salvation Army is taking up the new Cambridge Spinning House case, says the Daily Chronicle. The Salvationist officer in command at Cambridge has been interviewing the relatives and friends of Daisy Hopkins, and investigating the affair generally. So much was intimated in a letter forwarded to the Home Secretary from the Salvation Army headquarters on Friday. In this letter the writer, "Colonel? Barker, petitions for a remission of the sentence passed on Miss Hopkins, and says he hopes to be able to put evidence at the disposal of the Home Office which will vindicate her character. The Salvation Army, it will be remembered, did good service in exposing the last Spinning House scandal.
THE PERSONAL RIGHTS ASSOCIATION. With reference to the Spinning-House case, a correspondent writes to the Daily News: Your readers will probably interested to know that the Personal Rights Association, of 3, Victoria-street, Westminster, has offered to take or assist Miss Hopkins in taking any proceedings which it may be desirable to institute for the purpose of testing or calling public attention to the jurisdiction under which the sentence on her was pronounced.
PREVIOUS CASES. The University Spinning-House has once more been forced into unenviable notoriety, and again at Cambridge, writes the Daily News. Last time a girl imprisoned there escaped, and being convicted at the Cambridge Assizes, before Baron Pollock, was sent back to serve the remainder of her sentence, The refusal of the Judge to inflict any further penalty, was most significant, and added very much to the general feeling that academic jurisdiction should be confined to members of the University. On Thursday the Vice Chancellor of Cambridge sentenced another girl to fortnight's imprisonment for having been in the company of an undergraduate. No such crime is known to the law of England, and if Daisy Hopkins had not been apprehended in a University town, she would be entitled to her discharge on a habeas corpus, even if she had not also right of action against the magistrate who committed her. The liberty of the subject is far too serious a matter to be left in the hands of Proctors and Heads. In the leading case of Kemp v. Neville it was held that a perfectly innocent woman imprisoned by the Vice-Chancellor?s order had redress, because the Vice-Chancellor?s Court had charter and statutory powers. On the famous indictment of Governor Eyre, Sir Alexander Cockburn ruled that martial law could not be applied to civilians, but only to officers of the army and navy. It seems rather absurd that a power denied to Courts Martial should granted to Courts Academical.
ACADEMICAL TYRANNY. Some time ago, the Evening News and Post says, the working of this extraordinary tribunal was brought into unpleasant prominence by a case heard at the Cambridge Assizes, in which girl similarly convicted and sentenced had escaped from confinement, and the Judge of Assizes was reluctantly compelled to send her back to complete her term of imprisonment. Such a tempest of popular indignation against the anomalous private tribunal was then aroused that it was hoped we had heard the last of Academical tyranny practised upon the townsfolk of Cambridge. But the agitation died out without securing any legislative curtailment of the Vice-Chancellor?s powers, and now that puny despot of a University has repeated his offence.
AN ATROCIOUS SCANDAL. On Friday evening the Star called for the abolition of the Spinning House, and, referring to the atrocious scandal, said Daisy Hopkins will have to be released from the black-hole of the Cambridge Spinning House without undergoing the fourteen days? imprisonment to which she was yesterday condemned. The sooner this atrocious scandal is brought to the notice of the Home Secretary, and the sooner he orders the girl?s enlargement the better it will be for the credit of the Vice-Chancellor of the University. For an example the reformed procedure at Spinning House trials, it is worse than the old secret trial scandals.
MEN AND WOMEN UNEQUALLY JUDGED. The Star on Saturday compared Daisy Hopkins with Lady Russell, and calls for something more than a protest:?? Now we have here two cases very different at first sight. They occupy the newspapers the same day. The Press is full them. Everybody reads and everybody talks of them. But that which lies at the bottom of them both is identical?the unequal judgment to which men and women are subjected in moral matters. In the one case this results in unequal laws and unequal application of these laws; it crops up in such legal monstrosities the Court of the Vice- Chancellor at Cambridge.?
MR. FITZGERALD?S MEDDLE AND MESS. Monday the same paper says: The more the facts of the Cambridge Spinning House case come before the public the more atrocious does the whole procedure appear. The Vice-Chancellor?s Court is evidently ignorant of the first principles of fair trial. It is power which must be swept away ruthlessly. We importuned the Government to sweep it away a year ago when a similar case occurred. But they paid no attention. Mr. Fitzgerald, the member for Cambridge, meddled in the matter, and made a mess of it. The Government took advantage of the negotiations, and let the thing drop. But now they will have to move, and abolish the whole scandalous anomaly, some member of the Liberal front bench will have to take the thing and carry through the repeal of the obnoxious University privileges.?
WHAT THE VICE-CHANCELLOR HAS DONE. The Vail Mall. Gazette thanks the Vice-Chancellor for the way in which has again brought the Spinning House scandal to the front. His manner of doing may open to some exception, but the force and cogency of it cannot for a moment questioned.? . . . ?He has shown in the frankest possible fashion that the forms of judicial fairness adopted at Cambridge are pretence, and that the benevolent intentions of the proctors and their constables are a sham has reminded all once more that irresponsible und exceptional powers are certain to be abused, and that the system of special laws and special tribunals at the Universities unjust in practice it is indefensible in theory.?
A CLEARER NOTION WANTED. The, Daily Chronicle commenting on Tuesday?s proceedings remarks "It may be hoped that this rule, which returnable on Friday, will lead to some clearer notion what is and what is not in the power of a Cambridge Vice-Chancellor in the supposed interests of undergraduate morality.?
A DISGRACE TO CIVILIZATION. Mr. W. F. Brown, London, says, in the Daily Chronicle, his blood boiled when He read the case. ?Now, sir, this is a disgrace to civilization, and must be remedied forthwith, and I ask you, through your powerful paper, to appeal to the Home Secretary for the immediate release of this girl. It reminds one of the poor Manipur Princes, who, through their mistaken notion of right and wrong (or shall say want of knowledge) and daring to protect themselves, suffered by losing their heads.?
THAT BOOK There points in the evidence of the Cambridge policeman in the Spinning House case which must be investigated further (remarks The Star). ?Is any use made of this book?" asked the counsel, referring to the list of women which had been produced. ?Undoubtedly,? replied the witness. Returns for Government are made out from this register.? What returns for Government? Who orders them, and what authority? Can it be that Mr. Matthews encourages the making of such registers. A question must be asked as soon as Parliament reassembles.
PECULIAR CONDITIONS OF VARSITY TOWNS. We have not the slightest intention of prejudging the question one way the other,?? comments the Standard of the application on Tuesday, ?but may be allowed to point out that the conditions of a University town are necessarily so peculiar that what might be no evidence at all in London would be strong presumptive evidence at Cambridge. Hardly a single human being practically acquainted with the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge, unless he belonged to that party whose aim it is to make authority of every kind odious, would dream of denying that some jurisdiction of this sort must be lodged with the Vice-Chancellor. It is absolutely necessary to prevent loose women from flaunting about the streets of the University towns as they do in London, and not less necessary the existence of some deterrent power calculated to influence young women who may be on the brink of temptation. Without the supervision which some Radicals so bitterly denounce, the streets of Oxford and Cambridge would be what the Haymarket and Regent-street now are, and the Proctors would find it impossible to exercise any effective control, unless all undergraduates were confined to College after dark.?
APPLICATION FOR HABEAS CORPUS IN LONDON. On Tuesday the case of Daisy Hopkins was taken before the Queen?s Bench Division, London, Lord Coleridge and Mr. Justice A. L. Smith being on the Bench, on application of a habeas corpus against the Vice-Chancellor of Cambridge, who had sent her to prison, called the Spinning House, for keeping company with scholar of the University at night. One of the Judges at once referred to the first case of the kind, the ?Spinning House? case years ago. In 18(>0 case arose in Cambridge, in which a young woman, a milliner and dressmaker, residing with her mother, who was a widow, in a street in Cambridge, and so far as appeared was, stated in the law report of the case (? Kemp v. Neville,? 10 Com. Bench Reports, 531), person of irreproachable character. The Proctor having arrested the young woman, professedly under the powers of the charter of the University, as a loose and disorderly woman, the Vice Chancellor, being satisfied that she was so, sentenced her to imprisonment in the Spinning House. She brought an action against the Vice-Chancellor for false imprisonment, and he justified under the powers of the charter, to be found (as cited) in Cooper?s Annals of Cambridge, vol. 11., and which gave power to search for loose women and others suspected of evil, and so to deal with them as the young woman was in this case. The original Latin of the charter is;?Ad faciendum scrutinium, scrutationem, et inquisitionem villa Cantabrigie de et pro omnibus et publicis mulieribus pronubis, vagabondis, et aliis personis de malo suspectis, ad dictam villam,? &c. The Vice-Chancellor justifying under the powers the charter, and the warrant being drawn up in accordance with it, the case, which was tried before Chief Justice Erie, was left to the Jury all the points deemed material. The Jury found that the Proctor had reasonable cause for suspicion, and, in respect of the hearing and examination of the girl, that the Vice-Chancellor had not made due inquiry into her character, and that the punishment was undeserved. Nevertheless the Court gave judgment in favour of the Vice-Chancellor, because, as the charter invested him with authority to punish by imprisonment or otherwise he should think fit, he became invested with judicial authority, and a judge of record, and entitled to all the protection attached by law to the judicial office. The facts in the present case are known to our readers, being reported in last week?s Independent Press. The warrant was in these terms: To the Keeper of the Spinning House or House of Correction in the University and Town of Cambridge. Whereas Daisy Hopkins hath been apprehended by the Rev. Frederic Wallis, one of the pro-proctors of the said University, within the limit and jurisdiction thereof, and hath been this day brought before me and charged with walking with a member of the University in a certain public street of the town and suburbs of Cambridge, and within the precincts of the said University, which charge, as well upon the information of the said pro-proctor as upon the examination of the said Frederic Wallis, and after having heard what the said Frederic Wallis had to allege in her defence, I do adjudge to be true. These are, therefore, to require and command you to receive into your custody the said Daisy Hopkins, and her safely to keep in your said Spinning House for 14 days. Given under my hand and seal at Cambridge this third day of December, in the year of our Lord 1891. John Peile, Master of Christ?s College, and Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge.? I do certify that the above a true copy the warrant by virtue of which Daisy Hopkins is detained in my custody, and that the said Daisy Hopkins is not detained for any other cause. Agnes Johnston, Keeper of the Spinning House.? Upon affidavits of the young woman and her solicitor ?hers stating that she was advised, and believes that the commitment disclosed no offence against the common or statute law of the realm, or against the charters of the University, and that the proceedings before the Vice-Chancellor were irregular. Mr. Poland, Q.C. (with Dr. Cooper, instructed by Mr. A. J. Lyon), now moved on her behalf for rule directed to the Vice-Chancellor and also the keeper of the to show cause why a writ of habeas corpus should not issued to bring the young woman before the Court, and a writ of cettiorari to bring before them the l rant of commitment, in order that it might be quashed, with a view to her liberation and discharge from imprisonment, on the ground that she was in illegal custody and confinement. The warrant of commitment, he said, disclosed no offence whatever. It was merely for ?walking with a member of the University. Lord Coleridge: Is it an offence against law or charter of the University for a young woman to walk with any member of the University? Mr. Poland : No, certainly not. It is no offence at all; it is not stated that she was of bad character or even ?suspected of evil.? It is not stated under what law or charter the, supposed offence was committed. But in a former case charter of Elizabeth was referred to, set out Cooper?s ?Annals of Cambridge.? vol. 11. Mr. Justice A. L. -Smith.?There was case some thirty years ago in which the charter was set out. Mr. Poland : Yes, ?Kemp v. Neville ? (10 C. B. Rep.). But the present case differs from that most material respects. In that case the warrant stated an offence against the charter ?being in company with scholars the University for idle, disorderly, and immoral purposes, Ac. In this case the warrant states offence whatever?merely ?walking with a member of the University,?? which is no offence at all. There may have been evidence of some offence, but none is stated in the warrant of commitment, and if there were any offence it should have been stated and formed. Mr. Justice A. L. Smith.?lt was stated that she said to Russell that he could go with her to her rooms. Mr. Poland : But the fact is not found by the Vice-Chancellor, nor is that the offence charged. Lord Coleridge observed that in Kemp v. Neville the decision of the Court went upon the ground that the Vice-Chancellor was Judge of Court of record.? Is there any other case in which that was held? Mr. Poland : ; that is the only authority. But it is submitted that as there is offence the prisoner is illegally committed and is entitled to the writs. Lord Coleridge: You may take rule nisi for writs of habeas corpus. Mr. Poland asked also for a rule of certiorari to bring up the proceedings of the Court, or it was Court ?the charge, the record, the conviction, &c.?that they may quashed, and documents touching the same. He should like seethe charge-sheet and the record of the convictions if there was any, and then they should see what the Vice-Chancellor did. It should remembered that there was no appeal from this Court?if it was a Court?(laughter)?and no limit the term of imprisonment. There was unlimited punishment. (Laughter). He should like to see if the prison was legal prison. The Lord Chief Justice; Very well. Let the rule be returnable peremptorily on Friday.
|142||Daisy HOPKINS||4 Dec 1891||SHEFFIELD EVENING TELEGRAPH: ANOTHER SPINNING-HOUSE CASE. Before the Vice-Chancelor, Dr John Peile, Master of Christ's College, yesterday, the Spinning House at Cambridge was the scene of an extraordinary trial, the first since the University authorities permitted these cases to be heard in open court. A young girl named Daisy Hopkins, living at 36, Gold Street, in the borough, was charged under the University charter with being in the company of an undergraduate on the preceding evening. Mr J Lyon, solicitor, appeared for the prisoner. It transpired from the evidence given by a proctor (Mr F Wallis), and his two constables, that the girl was watched in several streets, and was seen by one of the constables (Kirby) with an undergraduate. The girl was subsequently arrested by the officers and taken to the Spinning House. Mr Lyon argued, in defence, that before the prisoner could be convicted under the charter she must be a person suspected of evil. He submitted that the evidence did not show in any way that she had acted with impropriety, and further that she was a girl of good character. He asked that a subpoena might be granted in order to call a clerical gentleman who would speak as to the girl's character, but that application was not granted. In the end the Vice-Chancellor sentenced the girl to 14 days' imprisonment. The case has caused considerable excitement in Cambridge, and no doubt has reopened the whole question of University jurisdiction.|

Reference to a case the Mansion House, on Wednesday, in which a young woman who gave the name of Daisy Hopkins, and described herself as a milliner, of 19, Gould-street, Cambridge, was sent to gaol for being drunk and disorderly in Gracechurch-street, and with having assaulted a police-constable in the execution of his duty, the solicitor acting in the case of Daisy Hopkins v. Wallis informed the Cambridge correspondent of the Press Association that Daisy Hopkins, the woman whose name was so prominently before the public recently in connection with the Spinning House case, has not been out of Cambridge this week, and that his clerk saw her at her home on Wednesday afternoon. "I have inquired of the police," the correspondent says, "and one of them tells me that he saw the veritable Daisy Hopkins in Cambridge on Tuesday evening, and one of the detectives says saw her at home yesterday (Wednesday) afternoon."|
|144||Daisy HOPKINS||11 Dec 1891||CAMBRIDGE INDEPENDENT PRESS: THE SPINNING HOUSE CASE. TO-DAY'S PROCEEDINGS. LEGAL ARGUMENTS IN LONDON. THE PRISONER WAS DISCHARGED. [Special Telegram]. The interest in the Spinning House Case has increased this week since the decision of Lord Coleridge to hear the application of habeus corpus to-day (Friday) was known, and the proceedings in the Law Courts have been anticipated with eagerness. The Lord Chief Justice and Justice A. L. Smith occupied the bench as a Divisional Court. The Attorney-General (Sir R. Webster), with .Mr. Cohen, Q.C., and Mr. Rawlinson appearing for the Vice-Chancellor (Dr. Peile, Master of Christ's College), to show cause against the rules for habeas corpus and certiorari to bring up Daisy Hopkins, that she might be discharged and the proceedings that they might be quashed. Mr. Poland, Q.C., and Dr. Cooper (instructed by Mr. A. J. Lyon) supported the rules. Their Lordships, whilst giving the Vice- Chancellor credit for the highest motives, and for performing his duty in this case thoroughly well, and in a perfectly legitimate and merciful manner, and whilst believing that the jurisdiction of the Vice-Chancellor over the moral discipline of the University ought to be maintained, were of opinion that the words in the charge against Hopkins disclosed no offence, and therefore gave no jurisdiction, and that no Court could give itself jurisdiction by adding to words a meaning which they did not contain. The rule, therefore, must go, and the prisoner be discharged. The Attorney-General said the Vice-Chancellor would obey the rule by discharging the prisoner at once, so as to save the expense of bringing her up.|

Mr. Macrow was one of the lay-clerks of the Cathedral, and was cut off in the spring of life. Professor Walmisley, of Cambridge, kindly volunteered his services to preside at the piano-forte, and a splendid treat it was to hear him; his power of execution and taste were exquisite. Miss Taylor, from the Royal Academy of music; Mr. Wells, on the flute; and Mr. Large, with the cornet-a-piston,delighted the audience. Messrs. Cooper, Millar, Machin, Jackman, Barraclough, Eastes, and even the boys performed their respective parts most admirably, and elicited repeated plaudits.

|161||Elizabeth Frances KEMPTON||30 Sep 1993||ELY STANDARD: Obituaries: Former proprietor of Kempton Ladies' Fashions, Elizabeth (Betty) Kempton of Downham Road, Ely died last week on her 89th Birthday. But Mrs Kempton was known nationwide to a generation of theatregoers after training for the stage in London and then touring the country with Sir Frank Benson's Shakespearean Touring Company.
When she was 21 she appeared in a musical at the Opera House in Tunbridge Wells before starring in Lady Windermere's Fan in London and the musical Sally at the Winter Gardens Theatre and in the subsequent National tour. But family loyalties called and in the early 1940s she returned to Ely to take over her parents' long-established business. But she kept her acting interests alive as a stalwart member of Ely Dramatic Society.
The Kempton family have had connections with the Cathedral since 1729 when Thomas Kempton became Cathedral organist and held the post for 33 years. Betty attended the Cathedral regularly and was a Friend of the Cathedral. She was a keen bridge player and also loved playing Scrabble.
She was a very knowledgeable gardener, which she loved, and enjoyed travel immensely, especially cruising to the West Indies on a Geest Banana Boat each year for many years. She also cruised to South Africa, Norway and Canada and maintained her waterborne enjoyment locally as an active member of Ely Sailing club, only giving up when she had to ask other members to help her.
A very independent, gracious lady, she will be missed by many people but, thankfully, she had really enjoyed her long retirement. A service will be held on Friday in the Cathedral at 1:30 pm.

The funeral of the late Mr. Henry Kempton, of High-street, Ely, took place at Ely Cemetery on Saturday afternoon. The body was brought from London by the train due into Ely at 1.56 p.m., in a coffin of polished oak, with brass furniture, and bearing the following inscription: "Henry Kempton, died 12th October, 1904, aged 68 years." At the station the coffin, covered with beautiful wreaths, was placed on a hand bier, and conveyed by way of Back-hill to the house in High-street, where the funeral procession was formed.

|169||Herbert Henry KEMPTON||11 Oct 1946||ELY STANDARD: Death of Mr H. H. Kempton. Well-known trader and sportsman. His many friends heard with deep regret of the death at his home early on Tuesday morning of Mr Herbert Henry Kempton, the well-known greengrocer and fruiterer, of 1 Market Street Ely. He was 74 and although he had been ailing for some time, he was in his shop as usual on Saturday and was up on Monday, although he went to bed in the afternoon. He died at 3 am on Tuesday.
A widow and two sons, Mr Francis Henry Kempton, who was in the business with his father, and Mr Herbert William Kempton of Harrow, are left and to them deep sympathy is extended. With the passing of Mr Kempton, Ely loses a member of one of its oldest and best known families; one that has been associated with the City for generations. The Market Street business has been in the family for 100 years and Mr Kempton took it over on the death of his father, the late Mr William Kempton, about 40 years ago.

|200||William KEMPTON||9 Feb 1842||BURY & NORWICH POST: On Wednesday last, at Ely, aged 35, James Prior a shoemaker, leaving a wife and four children. This poor fellow's death was accelerated by a singular circumstance. It appears that he some time since made or mended a pair of shoes for Mr. William Kempton, lay clerk of Ely Cathedral, a corpulent man; that through the shoes being too tight, or a small nail perforating the sole, Mr. Kempton was lamed, mortification ensued, and his life was in danger. Having been informed that this was owing to him, it produced such an effect, that he became at first melancholy, then raving mad; when death at last put a period to his sufferings. -- Camb. Ind.
