Mr. Trenchard, from the originals in his possession, and presented to the new edition of Hutchins's Dorsetshire; in which work are also given two portraits of his grandfather, Sir John Trenchard, and one of himself; and in the same work will be found an ample pedigree and account of this antient and respectable family.


Sir Æneas Mackintosh, of Mackintosh, Bart. Captain of Clan Chattan, who died on the 21st Jan. at Moy-hall, in the 69th year of his age, was a gentleman of the greatest worth. During the late distressing period, he gave up to a great proportion of his tenants a full third of their rents, for three successive years, and enabled, farther, such of them as had particularly suffered from the severity of the seasons, to re-stock their farms with sheep and cattle. His funeral was attended by upwards of forty carriages of all descriptions, and a large concourse of common people, both on foot and horseback. Six of the family servants, in deep mourning, and three pipers, playing the Clan's Lament, &c. preceded the hearse and six horses, which was followed by the family chariot and four empty, and three mourning carriages, containing the more immediate connexions of the deceased.


Feb. 14. In his 78th year, Mr. William Marsh, of Brook-street, Holborn. Though not of an elevated rank in life, he was long respected by the good and great; and may be classed, from his active and disinterested exertions, among the bene factors of his generation. Mr. M. was well known as one of the most zealous Managers of that annual and gratifying exhibition of British benevolence, the Assembling of the Charity Children of the Metropolis in St. Paul's Cathedral; and formed one of the Committee when our late revered Sovereign was present. On the demise of a former Treasurer some years since, Mr. Marsh was invited by "the Society of Patrons" of that Anniversary to accept the vacant office, which he could only be prevailed upon to undertake in conjunction with a friend. This office he filled with much credit; and was ever alive to the interests of this, and other' charities wherein be was engaged. Among these may be named the Parochial School of St. Andrew's Holborn, of which he was the Treasurer, and, for a lengthened period, the chief support. In this station, also, he acquitted himself so cordially to the satisfaction of the subscribers in the days of his health, that his portrait GENT. MAG. February, 1820.

was hung up in the Committee-room as a tribute of their respect; and subsequently, a handsome piece of plate was presented to him, as an approval of his character and conduct. The inscription, drawn up by the present Lord Bishop of St. Asaph, sufficiently attests the esteem in which he was held; and thus appropriately concludes: "Mark the approbation attendant on active goodness; and tread in the footsteps of this excellent man." Mr. M. was a conscientions supporter of the government in church and state, and exem

plary in his duties towards both.


The late William Clarke, esq. of Portugal-street, (whose death, on the 26th of December last, we announced in our last Volume, p. 640,) was born at Denshanger, in Northamptonshire, and was descended of an ancient family formerly resident at Wicken, in the same county. Being the youngest son of a large family, he chose for his profession that of a bookseller; and commenced business in Portugalstreet in the year 1767, which he carried on, in conjunction with his sons, to the day of his death, and by whom he is succeeded. He was a very domesticated man, of great private worth, modest and unassuming manners, and of strict honour and probity. His remains were deposited in the family-vault at Hornsey, Middlesex, on the first of January, 1820.


Feb. 6. At his house in the Strand, in his 75th year, Francis Wingrave, esq. This house has been in the occupation of eminent and highly-respectable booksellers for considerably more than a century; first, by Jacob Tonson, who here, in 1709, we believe, originally published the Spectator. Tonson, removing to a new house opposite, now the banking-house of Messrs. Hodsoll and Stirling, (and in which he died March 31, 1767) was succeeded in the old one by Mr. John Nourse, many years Bookseller to his late Majesty, both as Prince of Wales and King. On the death of John Nourse in 1780, all his bookselling concerns became the property of his brother Charles, an eminent surgeon at Oxford, who received the honour of Knighthood, August 15, 1786, on his late Majesty's visit to the University. At his decease in 1789, he bequeathed the bookselling business, with a handsome acknowledg ment of his services, to Mr. Francis Wingrave, who had for several years con ducted it with the most honourable assiduity, combined with the strictest integrity.

He commanded a company of the Athol Highlanders upon that memorable day, and being perfectly collected in his senses to the last moment, his enthusiastic accounts of the deeds of other years were truly interesting.
