1Charlotte Ann Bennison195489
Her maiden name was Charlotte Carr and she was known in the family as Aunt Lotty. I have a very large amount of information about my family for anyone who is interested.
2Patrick Campbell
Patrick Campbell was born on 21 Dec 1866, at Macleay Terrace in Wick. His parents were Archibald Campbell, a baker, and Johan Georgeson. He was also a baker. Records described in the entry for Elizabeth Gunn indicate that he died in 1894, but his death record disagrees. His death record indicates that he died on 19 Jan 1940 at Bignold Hospital in Wick. The record also states that he is the widower of Elizabeth Gunn, and his age (73 years) corresponds well with his year of birth. The causes of death are listed as adenoma of the prostate, pyelonephitis (kidney infection), uremia, and heart failure. The death record gives his usual residence as 28 Brown Place, Wick. His marriage to Elizabeth Gunn took place at Brown Place; his child, Elizabeth (Lizzie) was born at 28 Brown Place; a child, Margaret Ann Steven Campbell or Gunn (listed as illegitimate), born after his supposed death, is at 28 Brown Place; the 1901 census gives the address of his family (but not him) as 25 Brown Place; and his usual residence when he dies is 28 Brown Place. There is probably a very interesting story to explain his supposed death and reappearance.
3John Frederick Chanter1916
collected by our researcher Mavis Cherrill. John Frederick Chanter was born on 17th July 1853 to John Roberts (who was a solicitor) and Julia Bean Chanter (nee Latham) of The Square Barnstaple and baptised on 13th September, 1853 in Holy Trinity Church in Barnstaple. John Frederick Chanter married Rose Edith Thompson born 1864, the younger daughter of Reverend William Thompson, at Exmoor Parish Church on 2nd July 1889. Their only child Violet Mary Stewart Chanter was born in1891. John Frederick Chanter died on 16th July 1939, on the eve of his 86th birthday. After a service in Exeter Cathedral he was buried in the churchyard of St James Church, Swimbridge. He graduated with a MA from Jesus College, Cambridge in 1879 and was appointed Curate at Bridport and then Tisbury before becoming Rector of Parracombe in 1886. He retired in 1916 and went to live in Exmouth continuing as one of the licenced preachers of the diocese. In 1917 he was appointed Honourer Archivist of Exeter Cathedral, becoming Prebendary in 1921 and Treasurer in 1929. He had an interest in many things and wrote a number of books and presented various papers. John Frederick Chanter was elected a member of The Devonshire Association for the advancement of science literature and art in 1901 though he had helped his Father with many of the papers he had presented. In 1902 he asked R Handsford Worth (who was reporting for the Barrows Committee) if Chapman Barrows had been opened recently and amongst laughter he replied that they were opened in 1302 but did not know of any recent openings! John Frederick Chanter joined the Barrows Committee in 1904 and he invited R Handsford Worth to visit Parracombe on the borders of Exmoor. The Report states that seven members of the group known as Chapman Barrows run in a straight line, the direction being is 30 minutes south of east. The barrow which the Rev J F Chanter opened was between this line and the Longstone. He found charcoal, bone ash, and human bones including single and double teeth. The excavation continued until the whole of the small cairn surrounding the burial had been removed, but nothing was found.
4Walter B Dines191529
Birth: 1885 Brightlingsea Tendring District Essex, England Death: Aug. 25, 1915 Ballycastle County Antrim, Northern Ireland [Edit Dates] His death was registered, after coroner’s inquest held 26th August, as Benjamin Dines. He was described as “Able Seaman & Rigger”, but it is not clear whether he served in the Royal Navy or the Mercantile Marine. He died in Cushendall Cottage Hospital of fracture to the base of the skull caused by fall from the mast of the yacht “Clementina” in Cushenden Bay whilst engaged in his work as a Rigger. He is commemorated on the Roll of Honour in All Saints Church in his home town of Brightlingsea and on one of the tiles [at pew height] around the inside of the church-there is one for every marine casualty even before WWI. The church contains many items of interest particularly the unique frieze of memorial tiles to men lost at sea. The tiles bear witness to the various losses suffered by this seafaring community. While similar memorials can be found on the continent these tiles are a unique memorial in England. The ‘tile’ memorial says ‘’accidentally killed on HM Yacht Clementina.” He may have been working off the salvage boat, Linnet on Clementina a few weeks after the collision. HMS Clementina was a 625 ton armed Admiralty yacht, 469/1887,built in 1887.She served as an Auxilliary during the Great War.[hired 22/9/14]. After a collision on the 5th August 1915, she beached off Tor Cor Point. Armament: 2-6pdr, Pennant No.025, Examination Service, Capt Thomas Walker (retired Vice Admiral). Closing the SS Adam Smith (299grt) for examination off Tor Cor Point in the early morning, in collision, holed, and flooded from the stokehold aft. To prevent her sinking, she was run aground and beached nearby. Salvage was abandoned, and she was sold for breaking-up where she lay; no lives lost at this time, but an Assistant Engineer RNR * died on 20 September 1915 probably from injuries sustained. Note: location is confirmed as South Tor Cor or Torcor Point, Co. Galway (+J/C/D/He/dk; ADM.137/143) * this would be E.S. Manning who is a war casualty and is buried in this churchyard Ballycastle is up the coast from Cushedall in Antrim at the top of Northern Ireland . 1911 England Census Name: Walter Benjamin Dines Age in 1911: 25 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1886 Relation to Head: Head Birth Place: Brightlingsea, Essex Civil Parish: Brightlingsea County: Essex Country: England Address: 107 Sidney Street , Brightlingsea, Essex Marital Status: Married Occupation: Mariner Walter Benjamin Dines 25 Ellen Charlotte Dines 26 Marriage: 1909 Spouse: Ellen Charlotte Verrall He was the son of Benjamin and Emily Dines [nee Ruffell]

6Eric Melville Gould191623
2/Lt Gould, 3rd Battalion attached 2nd Battalion Devonshire Regiment. His mother, Elizabeth Sarah Colbourne Gould was a British subject born in Chile. His father, Claude William Shepard Gould was a Builders' Merchant and died in 1947. There is a brief notice in The Times - 17/7/1916 of the death of 2/Lt Gould. His Medal Index Card informs that he arrived in France 13/5/1916. His father applied for his medals 5/2/1922. On the 7th April, 1912 his sailed on the 'Ascania' to Maine, USA - interesting as the date is not far off the Titanic maiden voyage! I would be interested to learn where he went to school. Any further information appreciated. Regards ... Anne Pedley, Researching Devonshire Regiment Officers died on 1st July, 1916.

We regret to announce the death of Mr. William Lynd, oil-merchant, of Bowman-street, Leeds, which occurred yesterday morning suddenly at his residence at Wetherby. Mr. Lynd was born at Hunslet in 1824, and was thus 64 years of age. He was the fifth son of William Lynd, of Newton Limavaday, Londonderry, Ireland. In 1852 he married Miss Alice Waite, of Malton. He entered the Leeds Town Council in 1868 as a representative in the Liberal interest of the South Ward, and was re-elected on four occasions.

He was also chairman of the Wetherby District Liberal Committee. Mr. Lynd belonged to the Unitarian body. He had been in failing health for some time, but on Sunday was in good spirits and in the evening attended divine service.

9Allan Menzies185651
Re William Pearson, father of Karl Pearson (1857-1956): .... However after three years of apparent success, life for William in Edinburgh seemed to go seriously wrong. For his university records terminate abruptly in early 1848 with an enigmatic note written by Professor Allan Menzies (1805-1856): “I certify that Mr Pearson attended with perfect regularity until 28 January 1848, when he left Edinburgh, & that in all the Examinations he was highly distinguished by the extent and accuracy of his knowledge” (UCL:PP). Thus at the age of 25 years and 3 months, William Pearson mysteriously abandoned the law course which until that moment he had been completing excellently, and “left Edinburgh”. One can only speculate what triggered this sudden departure. Was there a crisis of some sort - a scandal perhaps? Or was his rapid departure from Edinburgh linked to other matters? (Campbell (1884:12) described Menzies as “extremely deaf”, information which I copied in Bibby (2013). However, it seems to have been his son, also Allan Menzies (1845-1916), who was deaf – he was born at 32 Queen Street, barely 200 yards from Broughton Street where William Pearson resided, and later became Professor of Theology at St Andrews and developed links with Germany. Menzies père played an interesting role in Scotland’s development of ‘open schooling’, so central to its “Democratic Intellect”, as the first Visitor appointed by the Trustees of the Dick Bequest – see Menzies (1835, 1854), and Cruickshank (1965). So the Menzies-Pearson link may be important in the development of William’s career.

11Selina Jane Norton1869
Selina died in the Cape, South Africa, where she had been born to English Settler parents, John Norton and Sarah Norden. Since her husbands had both passed away a few years prior, it is interesting that a memorial to her was included with her husband's in Scotland. She left 4 daughters by her first husband.
