P. 178. The Will of the late Right
Hon. John Earl of Suffolk and Berk-
shire has been proved in Doctors' Com-
mons, by his son Thomas, the present
Earl, the sole executor, to whom is left
the bulk of the personal estate, which
was sworn under 35,000l.; no freehold
property is comprehended in it.
legacies are but few, principally to ser-
vants, and charitable donations at Charl-
ton, in Wiltshire, (his Lordship's re-
sidence) and the neighbourhood; 350%.
per annum is left to his daughter, Lady
Catherine Howard, and it is provided, that
if by the last settlement of his Lordship's
property, her Ladyship should only have
3000, the sum of 20007. shall be added
to it, making her fortune 5000/.
Will is dated on the 12th of June, 1812,
and written in his Lordship's band, as are
also nine codicils attached to it, with little
regard to legal construction, few of the
papers having any witnesses. Two thou-
sand pounds are bequeathed to the Coun-
tess, to be paid within three months after
his decease; his Lordship, however, was
the survivor, she having died in Novem-
ber last; the Earl in January. Letters of
administration of the effects of the Coun-
tess (she having died intestate) are also
granted to the present Earl as her son;
her personal property being sworn to un-
der 800/


P. 275. The Will of the late Sir Vicary
Gibbs, dated Oct. 6, 1818, has passed the
Seal of the Perogative Court; probate be-
ing granted to George Gibbs, of Redland,
county of Gloucester, esq.; George Abra-
ham Crawley (his nephews); and Gilbert
Jones, of Salisbury-square, esq.; three
of the executors. Sir James Mansfield,
the other executor, having power reserved
to him for the same purpose.
The per-
sonal property is sworn under 80,000.
30,000. of which, after the death of Lady
Gibbs, is given to Sir Vicary's daughter,
Mrs. Filkiuton, for life, and the principal
is made subject to her appointment, by
will or otherwise; and in default of such
appointment, is given to her children at
21, or to daughters on their day of mar-
riage; if no children, reversion is made
to the testator's nephews, George Gibbs
or Geo. A. Crawley. Nearly the whole
of the remaining personal and freehold
property is left to Lady Gibbs for life, and
made subject to her appointment, in de-
fault of which it is subjected to similar
provisions as the said 30,000.

P. 379. The personal estate of the late
Right Hon. Henry Earl of Harewood,
Viscount Lascelles, and Baron Harewood,
has been sworn under 250,000. Testa-
mentary provisions are made, bearing date
the 2d of May 1800; among which are,
10,000l. to Lord Lascelles; 40,000l. to
the children of Lady Frances Douglas.
To his daughter, Lady Mary Anne Yorke,

10001. per annum for life, one half of
which to be devoted to the support and
maintenance of her children; to whom
also is given the sum of 20,000%. in equal
shares, on their arrival at twenty-one, or
marriage. 1


P. 477. a. l. 15, from the bottom.
Mrs. Chitty died after a few days ill-
Her memory will be justly re-
vered; for her life was marked by gene-
rous affection, paternal love, and unfeign-
ed piety; she was cheerful in conversa-
tion, benevolent in disposition, and warm
in her friendships :-fortitude and resigna-
tion fitted her for the vicissitudes of life:
-a religious mind gave her the blessing
of a conciliating temper; and her aimable
spirit left the world in peace, while it
"returned to the God who gave it."

P. 563. The following is an extract
from the late Mr. Grattan's Will:-"1
have a reversion in Fee, in my Queen's
County Estate, and if all my children die
without issue living at the time of their
death, I leave the said estate back to the
publick-that is to say, to the following
great officers for the time being;-the
Provost of Dublin College, the Lord Chan-
cellor of Ireland, the Lord Chief Justice
of the King's Bench, the Lord Mayor of
Dublin, the Bishop of Dublin, and Judge
Day, in trust, to form a foundation for
the annual support of unprovided gentle-
women, daughters of poor and meritorious
Citizens of Dublin, according to such
rules and regulations as they shall plan
and devise."

P. 573. b. 1. ult. The Rt. Hon. Lord
Charles Spencer died on the 15th June at
the house of his son, the Hon. W. R.
Spencer, at Petersham; in the Church of
which place his remains have been by
his own desire committed to the grave.
His Lordship was second son of Charles
Duke of Marlborough, was born in 1740,
and was consequently 80 years of age at
the time of his decease; for upwards of
40 years of which he represented his na-
tive county of Oxford in Parliament.
His Lordship was subsequently appointed
Postmaster General, jointly with the Duke
of Montrose. This venerable Nobleman
was, at the time of his death, a Lord of
his Majesty's Bedchamber, and one of the
oldest members of the Privy Council.

P. 574. Mr. William Thorne, printer,
of Red Lion Court, Fleet-street, was 62
years of age, and had been treasurer of
the Charity Schools of St. Dunstan's in
the West, nearly 15 years. He was much
respected by the subscribers; many of
whom evinced their regard by attending
the corpse to the Church, with the whole
of the Charity Children. After the Desk-
service was performed, and an anthem
had been sung by the children, his re-
mains were removed to Enfield for in-
