PREFACE.
jAVING at length brought to a close the
present work, which for several years has
occupied the leisure time I had from business, I freely submit it to the impartial judgment of
the public.
The great success attending my first, prompted me
to bring to a successful conclusion this my second
volume, thus completing my selections from the
Churches, Churchyards and Cemeteries of St. Paneras, in Middlesex.
I am not unmindful of the shortcomings of this
volume, but I trust the care taken to make it as
correct as possible, and the addition of illustrations
of arms belonging to many families, will increase
its value, and that it will prove acceptable to my
readers.
The descriptions of the armorial bearings represented in the several monuments will doubtless be of
viii
Preface.
interest to many.
The difficulty, however, of obtain-
ing an accurate account of them, owing to the injury
which many have sustained by exposure to weather
and other causes, must be my apology" for any
inaccuracies in their renderings.
Several subscribers
have furnished me with valuable information illustrative of various inscriptions, but want of space has
prevented their insertion.
It was my intention to have added more notes to
the distinguished characters whose names are inserted, but want of space prevented my doing so,
much to
my
disappointment.
The kindness which J. J. Howard, Esq., LL.D.,
has shown by valuable assistance throughout the
progress of the work, is deserving of my special
acknowledgement, as also the interest manifested in
it by others who have endeavoured to promote its
circulation.

INTRODUCTION.
j^igfjgate Cemetery
T
H I S ground is the property of the London
Cemetery Company, which was incorporated
by Act of Parliament, in 1839. It is situated in the
bay formed by the west and east hills, leading to the
town of Highgate, and faces the south.
No cemetery in or out of London can boast so
many natural beauties. Unlike many cemeteries,
which are more like reclaimed swamps, it is elevated,
and not only enjoys a natural drainage, but the main
drainage of the north extends along the base of the
hills.
The irregularity of the ground, rising in terraces,
the winding paths leading through avenues of shrubberies and marble monuments, and the groups of
majestic trees, contribute many material charms to
this solemn region.
The London Cemetery Company were among the
early promoters of that reform which was so long
needed, and which could only be carried out by men
of energy and enterprise. It was founded by Stephen
Geary, Esq., who also acted as architect to the com-

pany, and to whose judgment in selecting the spot,
and so tastefully laying out the ground, may be given
the credit for the great success attending the work.
The approach from the Highgate Road, at the top
of Kentish Town, is by Swaine's Lane ; bounded on
the north by St. Anne's Church, built at the cost of
Miss Barnett to the memory of her brother, and
above which is Holly Lodge and grounds, the residence of Baroness Burdett Coutts. On the south
side is a row of modern villas, beyond which is Holly
Village, built at the expense of Baroness Burdett
Coutts, and intended by her to form a background
to the view across her grounds. The villas were designed by Mr. Darbishire, and are quite an ornament
to this portion of the lane.
At the top of the lane on the left is the entrance to
the cemetery; on the left of the entrance is the
chapel, which is admirably fitted for its solemn purpose.
The interior of this sacred edifice is spacious and
lofty.
The absence of any unnecessary ornament produces
an effect of simplicity very appropriate.
A bier stands at the western end which can be
lowered through an aperture in the floor by hydraulic
pressure. The object of this bier is to convey the
coffin to the subterranean passage below, at the termination of the service in the chapel, so as to facilitate

its conveyance to the new ground on the opposite side
of the lane. This, if anything, adds to the solemnity
of the building and its uses.
On leaving the chapel we turn to the right, pass by
the lodge for the superintendent, and ascend a flight
of broad stone steps which leads up towards the
church of St. Michael which crowns the summit, appearing from distant parts of the ground to great
advantage, and which even seems, at a hasty glance,
to appertain to the cemetery.
As we ascend the hill we see on the left an archway
of Egyptian character, which forms the entrance to
the catacombs, in which the coffins are placed in
cavities formed by the most solid masonry.
Leaving the catacombs, we find ourselves almost
immediately on a broad level terrace with a handsome
balustrade, at the very foot of the church.
The view from this point is remarkably fine, and
is alone worth a visit, some half-dozen counties being
visible on a fine day.
The beauties of the place, indeed, appear to be
fully appreciated, for the gardens are daily filled with
persons evidently enjoying the quiet, the pure air and
the splendid landscape.
The cemetery of St. George the Martyr, Queen
Square, is in the parish of St. Pancras, and is situated
Xll
Introduction,
in Henrietta Street, Brunswick Square. It is closed
for interment, and is in a very sad state—the stones
falling over and broken, the trees uncut, and the wood
growing wild. It has all the appearance of a wilderness, and is a standing disgrace to the parish.
The cemetery of the wealthy parish of St. George's^
Bloomsbury, also joins the above, and is a little better
cared for, but in many instances the inscriptions are
almost obliterated. This should not be. Will no
churchman look to this, and see that the resting-place
of departed Christians is worthy of its name.
St. Andrew's, on the border of the parish, in the
Gray's Inn Road, is a large open space containing
very few monuments of any interest.
St. Giles'-in-the-Fields is in the Old St. Pancras
Road, adjoining the old parish church of St- Pancras,
and is in a ruinous state, children being allowed to
wander about the ground and destroy the tombs with
impunity.
The beautiful monument erected to the wife of Sir
John Soane was battered with stones, and the carving

destroyed. The cost of keeping some old pensioner
to watch over the grounds would be very trifling, and
would prevent such unseemly sights.
St, Martin's-in-the-Fields has a ground in Pratt
Street, Camden Town. This is kept in better order,
and reflects some credit on the parish owning it.

His professional talents were well-known in his day. His last
great work was the magnificent plate of " The Greek Fugitives "

Sacred to the memory of
ROBERT
LISTON,
F.R.S.,*
late Professor of Clinical Surgery
in University College, London,
Member of the Council, & an Examiner
of the Royal College of Surgeons
of England.
th
Born October 28 , 1794, Died December 7 th , 1847.
* Robert Liston, F.R.S., died in Clifford Street. He was
the son of the Rev. Henry Liston, minister of Ecclesmachan,
a clergyman of the Established Church of Scotland, in the
county of Linlithgow. He was born on October 28, 1794.
After completing the usual academical and professional course
of education, he became a graduate of the Royal College of
Surgeons of Edinburgh and London, and established himself
in the former city in the year 1817. He married, in 1820, a
daughter of Adam Crawford, Esq., wine merchant, of Leith. He
delivered lectures, first on anatomy and afterwards on surgery,
from 1822 to 1834. He speedily rose into eminence, both as a
lecturer and operator, and in this latter capacity he has had few
rivals and no superior. He was a most ardent, anxious, and indefatigable student of anatomy. Nor when he had attained
the highest eminence in his profession, did his zeal or assiduity
in the study of this department of science in any degree relax.
On this head he considered the education of a surgeon could
never be complete. At the termination of his professional studies
in 1815, he was appointed house-surgeon to the Royal Infirmary
of Edinburgh, in which he created such reforms that he received
the strongest testimonials of his important services to that institution. Notwithstanding his rising reputation he failed in
attaining the Professorship of Surgery in the University of
Edinburgh, which was at one time the object of his ambition.
In the year 1833, he published his "Principles of Surgery,''

which passed through several improved editions. In the year
1834, Mr. Liston was appointed surgeon to the North London
Hospital, in the parish of St. Pancras. He subsequently became
Professor of Clinical Surgery in University College, and continued until his death one of the brightest ornaments of that important institution. On his leaving Edinburgh, in November,
1834, a public entertainment was given to him, presided over
by the chief magistrate, supported by the most eminent professional men in the city. In the year 1846, he was appointed
one of the examiners of the Royal College of Surgeons. His
practice in London soon became extensive and steadily increased ; his reputation was now established, and his name
familiar in every school of medicine in Europe and America.
He was a fervid lover of truth and sincerity, and his attachments,
once formed, were lasting. " His sympathies were with everything open, manly, and honest." The funeral of this celebrated
surgeon took place on Monday, December 13, 1848. The procession set out for Highgate Cemetery at half-past nine, from the
deceased's residence in Clifford Street, and it consisted at first
of five mourning coaches, and fifteen private carriages. In the
former were relatives and his fellow medical professors of University College, and in the latter were friends of eminence in the
higher ranks. At Swain's Lane, near the cemetery, the cortege
was met by four hundred of Mr. Liston's former pupils, and by
about two hundred medical gentlemen and others. The service
was read in Highgate Church by the Rector, so as to accommodate the large number present. The family vault in which Mr.
Liston was interred is in the Terrace catacombs, the first tenant
being Mr. Dalrymple, sen., of Norwich.

Royal College of Surgeons in London,
eldest son of Wm. Dalrymple, Esq.,
late of Norwich.
Born 17th April, 1804,
Died 2 nd May, 1852.
* William Dalrymple was a native of Norwich, and was born
in 1772 ; he was educated at the Grammar School at Aylesham
in Norfolk, then under the tuition of Mr. North. From Aylesham he was removed to the free school at Norwich, where he
became a favourite pupil of the celebrated Dr. Parr, the head
master. In accordance with the rule of medical apprenticeships
to extend to seven years he was obliged to leave school at the
age of fourteen. Mr. Dalrymple was apprenticed to Messrs.
Devaynes & Hingeston, the court apothecaries of that day, and
his surgical studies were pursued at the then united Hospitals
of St. Thomas's and Guy's, under those eminent men, the elder
Clive and Sir Astley Cooper. In 1793, he returned to Norwich
and opened a surgery in his father's house. For some years his
professional progress wa§ slow, owing to his views upon civil and
religious polity, which were at that time considered inconsistent
with loyalty and good citizenship. In 1812, he was invited to
become assistant surgeon to the Norfolk and Norwich Hospital,
where, in i8i3,he attracted the attention of the medical profession
by the successful performance of the then very rare operation of

placing a ligature upon the common carotid artery. I n 1814 he
was appointed surgeon to the above hospital, vacated by the late
Dr. Rigby. His career in this noble institution was marked not
less by a devoted industry than by the highest anatomical science
and surgical skill; his practice was eminently humane, patient,
and delicate. His talents and acquirements were now acknowledged by the highest rewards which his native town could offer,
and he was called on to fill almost every public office connected
with his profession which could be bestowed upon him. In 1839,
in his 67th year, his powers at length gave way, and finding himself no longer equal to his hospital practice he resigned his
position, receiving a cordial acknowledgment from the governors.
I n 1844 he finally retired from professional life, and with the
most praiseworthy generosity presented the entire contents of
his museum, which had cost him years of labour, to the Norfolk
and Norwich Hospital. This noble gift was gratefully acknowledged by the governors, and an inscription was placed in the
New Museum Room, which had been erected by public subscription to receive the collection. Scrupulous in honour himself, he venerated honourable and elevating principles, and ever
spoke of them with enthusiasm. Mr. Dalrymple was married in
July, 1 7 9 9 , t 0 Miss Marianne Bertram.

Louis HAYES PETIT,*
of Lincoln's Inn, Barrister-at-Law,
who died on the i3 tlL day of November, in the year
of our Lord 1849,
aged 75.
His varied information,
his uniform cheerfulness of temper and active
benevolence,
secured him the esteem of all who knew him,
his own uprightness of principle and his discernment
of it in others,
made his friendships honourable,
his sound judgment made them valuable;
the kindness of his disposition made them numerous,
the firmness and steadiness of his character made
them lastiiig.
They who loved him
cherish the remembrance of his virtues with
affection and gratitude,
but they rest not on these their hopes
of his everlasting welfare,
for he built not upon that foundation,
but constantly remembered that the best of his works
could only be accepted in heaven
thro' the merits of his Redeemer.

SIR JOHN
GURNEY,*
Late one of the Barons of the Exchequer.
In a profession which is singularly open to public view,
he commanded the respect and goodwill of all who
knew him,
and rose by a course of patient and honorable exertion
to a distinguished place among the advocates of
his day :
called at length to a higher post,
he carried to the bench of justice,
a clear intellect, an inflexible love of right,
and a cheerful devotion of all his powers to the
public service ;
his private virtues gladdened his own home,
and were the admiration of many beyond it,
but his hope was in Christ, and in Him alone :
* Sir John Gurney was the son of Joseph Gurney, Esq., of
Walworth, and his mother was the daughter of William Brodie,
Esq., formerly of Mansfield. H e died March i, 1845, a t m s residence in Lincoln's Inn Fields, aged 76. H e was called to the
bar at the Inner Temple, May 3, 1793. In the early portion of
his professional career he devoted himself sedulously and
successfully to Old Bailey practice, and, with his vigorous talents
and unceasing industry, he soon obtained a considerable reputation as a criminal lawyer. H e selected the Home Circuit and
the Court of King's Bench for his professional employment. In
Michaelmas term, 1810, he was appointed a King's Counsel ;
and in the year 1823, he was called within the bar. T h e zeal
and industry of Mr. Gurney procured for him a large share of
business, and in the year 1832, he was raised to the Bench of the
Court of Exchequer. Sir J. Gurney retired from the Bench
scarcely six weeks before his death. H e was a man eminent
for his attention to religious duties. In early life he was a
member of an independent congregation at Clapham ; but before
his elevation to the Bench, he joined the Church of England.
Sir J. Gurney married, Dec. 11,1797, Maria, daughter of William
Hawes, M.D., by whom he had a numerous family.
(

Death in peace like her, seek it
thro' the blood of the Cross !
" She sleeps in Jesus, but shall soon arise
To claim thro' Him, her mansion in the skies,
Because He lives, she too shall live again
To share the glories of an endless reign."
John 14—19.

To the memory of
H E N R Y
COLMAN,
of
Salem, Massachusetts, U.S.,
ob. August 17th, 1849, in London,
aged 65.
In early life a minister of the gospel,
in later years its secular missionary,
he devoted himself to the work of
studying in various countries of Europe,
those facts which bear on the great
interests of humanity,
and in the course of his researches
he brought to light not only an appalling
mass of hidden misery, but the means—
more especially such as are afforded
by agriculture—
of improving the condition and enlarging
the resources of the people of each state.
In him the despised and rejected
have lost a brother,
the rich and noble a friend, whose
truthfulness won their regard,
whilst it commanded their respect.
His prayer that he might die at home
at last was not fulfilled, but his labors
of love came to a close
in a kindred land
where his name had ceased to be
that of a stranger.
(

This memorial is erected in testimony
that the virtues which made
Henry Colman
an honor to his own country
have found a warm response
from English hearts.

(father of the above-mentioned Charles Sotheran), of Lewishamy
Kent, gent., who was baptized Sept. 15, 1782, in the parish church
of St. Oswald, Oswaldkirk, co. York, and died August 4, 1866, at
Lewisham, aged 84 ; and also of Maria Sotheran, his wife (whom he
married April 13, 1812, at Old St. Pancras Church, London),,
daughter of Charles Price, of Somerset House, London, Esq., and
granddaughter of William Phillips, of Witston House, co. Monmouth, Esq., J . P . ; she was born 1788 at Abergavenny, co. Monmouth, died September g, 1868, at Penge, co. Surrey, in her
eightieth year, and was interred at Highgate Cemetery, on September 15 following. The father of Mr. Thomas Sotheran was Thomas
Sotheran, of Outhouses, near Ampleforth, co. York, gent., descended
from a family of minor gentry, which have been seated on their own
estates at Ampleforth, Gilling, Oswaldkirk, and other parts of the
North Riding of the county of York as early as the sixteenth
century, when we find Robert Sotheran, knight, resident at Ampleforth ; from his " inq. post mort." in the possession of a descendant, and "taken at Kirby-Moreside, in the county of York,,
the 16th day of October, in the 20th year of the reign of our Lord
James, by the grace of God of England, France^ and Ireland, King,,
defender of the Faith, &c, and in the 56th year of his reign as King
of Scotland, before Thomas Lovell, escheator, &c, & c , " we learn
that he died on May 1, 1619, and that his son and heir, then aged
twenty, was John Sotheran; this Robert Sotheran was a son of
( 45 )
William Sotheran, of Newcastle-on-Tyne, and is mentioned, together with his father, in the will dated 1582, and proved 1583, of his
uncle, John Sotheren, of Newcastle, merchant, who Was brother to
Stephen Sotheron, sheriff of Newcastle, 1561. The Sotherons had,
as monastic and other records show, been before that time settled in
the county of Durham. Among other members there living were
Sir Robert Sotheron, knight, of New-Elvet, in the city of Durham,
who is frequently mentioned 1448-78, in the books of Finchale,
Durham, and Coldingham Priories ; William Sotheron, chaplain, the
conveyer, 1462, of lands in Greencroft, co. Durham, on behalf of
Stephen Anstell, dean of Lanchester, who died 1461; and Sir
William Sotheron, knight, chaplain of Hampsthwaite, co. York,
whose name appears in the will, proved 1536, of Marmaduke Beckwifh, of Dacre-in-Nidderdale. The Sotherons of Darrington Hall,
co. York (who had, May 26, 1810, from Sir Isaac Heard, Garter King
of Arms, Knight, and Ralph Bigland, Norroy King of Arms, Esq., a
grant of the arms "gules on a bend indented between six cross
crosslets argent, three eagles displayed sable," and crest " an eagle
with two heads displayed party per pale argent and gules, the wings
semee of cross crosslets, counterchanged, murally crowned, beaked,
and membered or") are also descended from this family resident
in Newcastle and co. Durham; their earliest ancestor given in
a pedigree entered by them, 1810, at the College of Arms, is William
Sotheron, the purchaser, 1603 {temp. Queen Elizabeth), of lands at
Holm-in-Spaldingmore, in the East Riding of the county of York,
who was doubtless a son of William Sotheron (brother to John
Sotheren of Newcastle before-mentioned), of Newcastle-on-Tyne,
merchant, by Katharine his wife, daughter of Ralph Willy, of
Haughton-le-Side, co. Durham. The subjoined woodcut of the
arms of Stephen Sotheron, "argent, a chevron between three
branches of southernwood vert; in chief a crescent sable," is taken
from the " Carr MS." in Vol. 41 of the Surtees Society's publications.

See then how soon the flowers of life decay,
How soon terrestrial pleasures fade away ;
A star of comfort for a moment giv'n,
Just rose on earth, then set to rise in heaven.
Faith tells thee, and it tells thee not in vain,
That thou shall meet thine infant yet again,
While yet on earth thine ever circling arms,
Held it securest from surrounding harms ;
Yet even there disease could aim the dart,
Chill the warm cheek and stop the fluttering heart;
Then far be grief, faith looks beyond the tomb,
And heaven's bright portals sparkle thro' the gloom,
If bitter thoughts and tears in heaven could be,
It is thine infant that should weep for thee.
To the memory of
SUSANNAH

The closing rite is o'er, and earth has paid
Its closing tribute : never one more just,
More pure, was proffered to a child of dust.
She was meek, so kind, the sainted shade I
Her life flowed on in such an even course
Of duty, full of faith and truth and love.

And delightful hopes inspire ;
Died to try our resignation,
And direct our wishes higher ;
Rest, sweet child, in gentle slumbers,
Till the resurrection morn ;
Then arise to join the numbers,
That its triumphs shall adorn.
Though thy presence so endearing,
We thy absence now deplore ;
A t the Saviour's bright appearing,
We shall meet to part no more.
Thus to thee, O Lord, submitting,
We our dearest pledge resign ;
And thy mercies ne'er forgetting,
Own that all we have is thine.

Omnipotent, immortal, & immense is the Great Creator.
Life's like a winter's day.
Some only breakfast and away;
Others to dinner stay and are full fed;
The oldest one but sups and goes to bed.
Wretched is he that lingers out the day,
H e that goes soonest has the least to pay.
The curfew tolls the knell of parting day,
The lowing herd winds slowly o'er the lea,
The plowman homeward plods his weary way,
And leaves the world in darkness and to me.
There is another and a better world.
" The world can neither give nor take, or can

Jacob's Vision:
the three steps signify the three commissions—
Spirit,
Blood,
Water.
God is the rock, the oil is faith.
There are three that bear witness in earth,
the water, blood, and Spirit, they agree in one.
There are three that bear witness in heaven,
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost; they are one,
three titles, but one God.

* Mr. Pepys was born in the year 1775, in the City of London, where his father conducted the business of cutler and
surgical instrument maker. His early history is connected in a
remarkable manner with that of the progress of chemistry and
of some other branches of science in this country. He was
among the number who founded the London Institution, and,
through the British Mineralogical Society, in part also to the
establishment of the Geological Society of London, of all which
Mr. Pepys was an early member and office-bearer. His skill
and ingenuity in the construction of apparatus proved most
important auxiliaries in the progress of chemical and electrochemical science in England for a period of thirty years. In
1808 Mr. Pepys was elected a fellow of the Royal Society.
Under his direction a voltaic battery of 2,000 double plates of
zinc and copper was constructed, with which many of Sir H.
Davy's experiments on the magnetic phenomena produced by
electricity were made, with the personal assistance of Mr.
Pepys and other friends. He died at his house in Earl's
Terrace, Kensington, London.

Emily Susanna Laura, eldest daughter of the Right Hon. Sir William
Waldegrave, first Baron Radstock, of Castle Town, Admiral of the
Red and G.C.B., by Cornelia, his wife, daughter of David Van
Lennap, of Smyrna, Esq. His lineal ancestor, from whom he stood
fourth in descent, was the Rev. Thomas Westby (son of George
Westby, of Rawcliffe, co. Lancaster, Esq., a major in the army),
of Clonmel, who, about the time of the Commonwealth, settled in
Ireland ; his family, which had flourished in Lancashire from early
in the sixteenth century, had previously been seated at Westby,
Ravenfield, Coningsburgh, Firsby, and elsewhere in the county of
York; the Yorkshire and chief branch of the family became extinct
in the male line by the death, in 1790, of George Westby (whose wife
was Catherine, daughter and heir of John Hirst, of Clough House,
co. York, Esq., and great-granddaughter of George Westby, of Gilthwaite, Esq., who died 1671), of Howarth Grange and Gilthwaite,

MR. EDMUND
BRAMSTON,
of North St., Pentonville, and South Place, Middlesex,
Born 18th August, 1808;
Died 9 th June, 1859.
* Jeremiah Wombwell was born at D u End, Saffron Walden,
Essex, in 1783. W h e n a boy he devoted much time to the
breeding and rearing of birds, pigeons, rabbits, dogs, and other
domestic animals, and beyond this had no idea of becoming the
proprietor of a menagerie ; in fact he became one by force of
accident rather than of circumstances. At the London Docks
he saw some fine boa-constrictors. Most of the showmen were
afraid or ignorant of managing them, and from this cause the
prices gave way a little. At length Mr. Wombwell ventured to
offer £75 for a pair. They were sold to him, and in the course
of three weeks he realised considerably more than that sum by
their exhibition, a circumstance which made him partial to the
serpent species, as it was his first introduction to the profession.
At about this time Mr. Wombwell, who was by trade a cordwainer, kept a bird and shoemaker's shop in Compton Street,
Soho, and subsequently exhibited with great success his boaconstrictors in Piccadilly. From this time he became a regular
showman. The cost of Mr. WombwelFs three establishments
were enormous, averaging £35 per day. H e died at Northallerton, in Yorkshire.

edited the u Leeds Intelligencer/' and subsequently the " Manchester Courier." In 1825 he commenced the " L i t e r a r y
Souvenir," assisted by Campbell, Wordsworth, and Coleridge.
H e also tried to establish a fine-art annual called " T h e Poetical
Album." In 1833 he started the " United Service Gazette," of
which he remained the editor until 1843. H e was subsequently
connected with the " S t a n d a r d " and other newspapers. A
collected edition of his poetical pieces appeared in 1851, with
the title of " Lyrics of the Heart," and two years subsequently
he received a pension of ,£100 per annum from the Government.

* Mr. Farady was born in London, 1794. H e was apprenticed
to the trade of bookbinding, but his mechanical genius and
talent for investigation procured him the ultimate patronage of
Sir }3umphrey Davy. Through his interest he was taken into
the laboratory of the Royal Institution of London, where he was
enabled to pursue his studies. In 1827, he published his work
on " Chemical Manipulations," and from that time continued a
regular contributor to the " Philosophical Transactions," spreading his investigations over the wide field of electricity. H e
published three volumes, on " Experimental Researches in
Electricity," in which are included his researches into the magnetic nature of oxygen gas, light, and other important subjects.
A true philosopher, he rejected all posts of honour, confining
himself to his sphere in the Royal Institution, where the charm
of his lectures was a continual attraction to those who delighted
to follow him through the paths of magnetic science. In private
life his character was irreproachable, and characterised by great
goodness and humanity.

GEORGE B R E T T I N G H A M SOWERBY, F.L.S.,*
Naturalist,
Who died July 26 th , 1854,
Aged 64.
* Mr. G. B. Sowerby, was born at Lambeth, on the 12th of
August, 1788. He was the second son of Mr. James Sowerby.
He studied natural history with more success than his elder
brother, though not so good an artist. In early life he was
attached to the study of entomology, and assisted his father in
those departments of his labours, where a knowledge of insects
was required. On marrying, however, he gave up entomology,
and commenced business as a dealer in natural history objects,
and visited the continent of Europe for the purpose of obtaining
specimens. He bought the celebrated TankerviUe Collection of
Shells, for which he gave ^6,000. His knowledge of the forms
of shells was very extensive, and he projected and published a
great work entitled " The Genera of Recent and Fossil Shells;"
besides this he published numerous other works, from 1824 to
1845. He was a fellow of the Linnean Society.

Who calmly fell asleep in Jesus, August II t h , 1864,
Aged 31.
Oh, thou, for ever fond, for ever true!
Has Death for ever torn thee from my view ?
Thy voice that counselled, charmed, consoled and
bless'd,
Thy deep solicitude that found no rest,
But in completion of some pure design,
To make my happiness the spring of thine.
Gone, but not lost—a living link
To bind us closer to our God,
A treasure rich laid up in store,
To be restored when time's no more.

Adieu ! my sweet one, sleep in peace
Upon thy pillow lone and chill ;
Thy little life was doomed to cease—
But ah ! I fondly love thee still.
Thy spirit like a meteor bright,
Illum'd my heart with hopes of day ;
'Twas but to plunge in deeper night,
And chase my cherished hopes away.
W h y did I love so sweet a rose,
And rest on it my thoughts for years ?
Thy loss hath added to my woes,
And drown'd my rising joys in tears.
Yet still farewell, my blighted flower,
Thy angel form I'll ne'er forget;
But think on thee until the hour,
When life's dull star to me hath set.

Transplanted to that blessed place,
Where all is love, and joy and peace.

Different branches of his numerous family,
And attached to himself the affection and respect of
A large circle of relatives and friends.
Enduring a long and painful illness with Christian
Submission, he was taught therein more feelingly to
Acknowledge the utter vanity of all earthly pursuits,
And to rest his hopes of eternal happiness on the
Mercy and favour of God
Through the merits of the Redeemer. ,
His widow offers this affectionate tribute to his
Memory.
