5Anna Dawn18319
MELANCHOLY EVENT AT Bottesford near Belvoir Castle on the afternoon of Saturday week, 30th April. It appears that the floor of the privy of the BULL INN of that place composed of wood and which was over the vault, three or four yards in depth, had for some time been in an insecure state, and at the above-mentioned time, four children from 9 to 12 years of age, went into the place and were dancing upon the floor when it gave way and the whole of them went down with it, and all were suffocated in the soil before any help could be obtained. One of the children was the daughter of Mr. David HOE, the Landlord, one the daughter of Mr. GEESON, grocer, one that of Mr. John SUTTON, fellmonger, and the other that of Mr. DAWN, Breather Hills near Barrowby [probably Anna Dawn], who the day previous had come to her aunts house at Bottesford to receive her education. An Inquest was held on Monday at the Red Lion before Mr. CLARK, the coroner. Verdict: Accidental Death - The Times 10 May 1831
6Walter 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]

25Robert Morton Shalders1984
I think the Copleys must be Robert's grandparents. Robert used to live with his mother in Corton Road, Lowestoft; her parents - who helped with his upbringing - in a house on the ooposite side. Robert's mother later married a Mr. Geddes, who had a son called Angus, and the new family moved to south Lowestoft. Presuming this is the Robert Shaldars I knew, he was an old boyfriend of mine when we both attended Lowestoft Grammar School. I heard years later than he had been killed in a road accident while he was riding a motor cycle.
26Thomas Sherris193867
Thomas Wilkinson Sherris was born in May 1866 and died in July 1933 aged 67. Prudence was actually born in December 1865 and died in January 1935 aged 69.(I know how difficult it is to read the detail on some stones). Edward died in a a road accident in August 1944, one week before his 12th birthday.
