DEATH OF MR J. H. INSOLE. A PIOSTEER OF CARDIFF'S TRADE. We regret to announce the death of Mr. James Harvey Insole, of Ely Court. The sad event took place on Sunday evening at seven o'clock at his residence. Mr. Insole, who was in his eightieth year, had been ailing for many months, and since last summer a marked diminution of strength had been apparent to all his relatives and friends. Still, he retained his mental faculties to the end. and death was due to physical decay. lIe was attended by Dr. C. Yach-ell. Mr. Insole was twice married, and a widow, a son (Mr. Frederick Insole, Fairwater, Hurst), and a daughter (Mrs. Fernham) survive him. An elder son (Mr. Walter Insole) died some years ago. Mr. Insole was one of the pioneers in the development of Cardiff as a. port for the ship- ment of coal. He was born at Worcester in 1821, and in 1828 removed with his father, the late Mr. George Insole, to Cardiff. The latter became a well-known colliery proprietor and coal shipper, owning first of all the Maes- mawr Colliery, and subsequently acquiring ..n interest in and shipping the Wainwyllt coal. It was he who introduced that vein to Cardiff shippers, and special interest attaches to the fact as it was absolutely the flrst steam coal delivered in Cardiff. That was within a year of the removal to Cardiff, and was the com- mencement of a trade that has grown to a vast and important extent. The first cargo was forwarded to London, then a cargo was sent to Malta-a long way in those days—and in the following year his Majesty's ship St. Pierre (Commander Denham) was bun- kered. These three transactions constitute the three points of departure in steam coal history—the first shipment to the London market, the first foreign shipment, and the first supply to tlw Royal Navy. Mr. George Insole was also one of the principal promoters of the Taff Vale Railway. Mr. James H. Insole entered into partnership with his father in 1842, and as partners they acquired property at Cymmer, near Porth. The firm was one of the first to recognise the untold wealth of the Rhondda Valleys, and, having secured the Abergorky property, sank pits to the steam coal measures, which fully realised all that was expected of them. In 1857 Mr. Insole was placed on the commission of the peace for the borough of Cardiff, being one of the earliest r. agistrates, and ten years later wa-s also enrolled as a magistrate for the county of Glamorgan. He was one of the original direc- tors of the Penarth Harbour, Dock, and Rail- way, and was a director aieo of the Ely Valley Railway. When the Cardiff Chamber of Com- merce was established, in 1896, Mr. Insole was elected first president.
