Admiral Sir Day Hort Bosanquet GCMG., GCVO., KCB

M, b. 12 March 1843, d. 28 June 1923
     Admiral Sir Day Hort Bosanquet GCMG., GCVO., KCB was born on 12 March 1843 in Rock Hall, Northumberland.1,2 He was baptised on 23 April 1843 at Rock, Northumberland.2 He married Mary Butt, daughter of Colonel Thomas Bromhead Butt and Geraldine May Sewell, on 1 February 1881 in St. Paul's, Upper Norwood, Croydon, Surrey.3 Admiral Sir Day Hort Bosanquet GCMG., GCVO., KCB died on 28 June 1923 in The Old Vicarage, Newbury, Berkshire, at the age of 801 and is buried in St. Mary's churchyard, Shaw-cum-Donnington, Berkshire.

SIR DAY BOSANQUET. Admiral Sir Day Hort Bosanquot, G.C.M.G., G.C.V.O., K.C.B., died, we regret to announce, on Thursday, at the Old Vicarage, Newbury, aged 80.
The Admiral was an officer of marked ability who held several important commands, and after he reached flag rank he seemed one of the indispensable men of the Navy. But, apart from the Governorship of South Australia, in which he was conspicuously successful, fortune was niggardly in opportunities of public service.
The Bosanquets descend from an old Huguenot family of Languedoc. Sir Day's younger brother, Dr. Bernard Bosanquet, the philosopher, died last February; his nephew, Robert Carr Bosanquet, the archaeologist, is known for his excavations in Crete and Sparta; Sir F.A. Bosanquet, K.C., is a kinsman. The third son of the Rev. R.W. Bosanquet, of Rock Hall, Northumberland, he was born on March 22, 1843, and entered the Navy in 1857, being on the active list lor fifty one years. As a midshipman he served under Sir James Hope in China, was present at the taking of Canton and the Peiho forts, and was specially promoted for the high place he took in passing for lieutenant. He next served under Sir Geoffrey Hornby in the flying squadron of 1869-70, and was then selected as senior lieutenant in charge of the cadets in the sea-going training ships Bristol and Ariadne from 1870 to 1872. His promotion to commander was from the Royal yacht, and he was then given the Doris, one of the ships which formed the escort to the Serapis, in which vessel King Edward, then Prince of Wales, went to India. Three years as captain were passed in charge of the harbour training establishments, and in May, 1897, he was advanced to flag rank. He hoisted his flag three times — in the East Indies from 1899 to 1902, on the North America and West Indies station and in the seagoing training squadron from 1904 to 1907, and as commander-in-chief at Portsmouth until his retirement. He did good work in suppressing the slave trade and gun-running during his command of the East Indies Station. A considerable weight of responsibility rested on his shoulders during these years, for, with the Commander-in-Chief at the Cape, he had to prevent the importation of arms by the Boers through Lorenzo Marques. After he had hauled down his flag at Portsmouth In 1908, he was appointed Governor of South Australia, a post which he held till 1914. Two other admirals were Governors in Australia at the time — Sir Harry Rawson, of New South Wales, and Sir Frederick Bedford of Western Australia. Sir Day brought to his duties the right qualities or common sense, dignity, and geniality of manner, and he and his family became very popular in the State. On his retirement from the Governorship he was created G.C.M.G., and K.C.B. in 1915; he had been made G.C.V.O. in 1907. He married, in 1881, Mary, daughter of Colonel T. Bromhead Butt, by whom he had two daughters, one of whom is the wife of Captain Raymond Fitzmaurice, D.S.0., R.N. His only son, Major G.B. Bosanquet, M.C. and Legion of Honour, was killed in action in 1916. The Times, 30 June 1923.4

In the same term: An assize, etc., of Ralph le Botiller and Matilda his wife had unjustly disseised Jordan de Flossebrok of an acre of land and an acre of heather in Nether Oldynton (Oulton). Ralph and Matilda state that Jordan had newly enclosed four acres of pasture within the vill of Nether Oldynton of which Ralph is capital lord, in right of Matilda his wife, and that the soil of the said pasture belonged to him and Matilda, and he had therefore lawfully pulled down the fence. The jury say that Jordan had enclosed the said land and pasture, of which the soil belonged to him. He is therefore to recover seisin. m. 14.6 In August 1294 at Tamworth, Staffordshire, Assizes taken at Tamwurth in co. Stafford on the Thursday after the Feast of St. Peter ad Vincula, 22 E. I.

Staff. An assize, etc., if Ralph le Botiler and Matilda his wife had unjustly disseised Jordan de Flosbrok of estovers of wood for burning and building without the view of the Forester in Northbyri (Norbury). The Bailiff of Ralph stated that one Richard the father of Jordan (whose heir he is) had brought a King's writ against Philip Marmyon then the tenant of the wood respecting the same estovers, and Philip had then conceded to him reasonable estovers by view and livery of his Foresters, but not otherwise, and Jordan is now in seisin of that right. Jordan stated he was in seisin of the right of estover without view or liberty of the Foresters until Ralph and Matilda had deprived him of it; and the jury find in his favour. Damages 1 mark. m. 9.

The jury upon whom Jordan de Flosbrok and Ralph son of Ralph le Botyler had put themselves, convicted the said Ralph of having struck Jordan in the presence of the Justices, maliciously and to the contempt of the King and of the Court, when the said Jordan was withdrawing from the bar of this Court (a barrâ istius Curiae), after he had recovered his reasonable estovers against Ralph le Botyler the father of Ralph. Jordan is therefore to have half a mark for damages, and Ralph is to be committed to prison. m. 9.7 Sir Ralph le Botiler of Codynton, Pulverbatch and Norbury died in 1307.4
