CHESTER OLD KING SCHOLARS. ♦ — Death has been busy lately among old scholars of Chester School. There died the other day, at his rectory of Kirk Andrews-on- Eden, Carlisle, the Rev. Thomas Owen Sturkey, who was at school at the King's School from 1875 to 1878. He was the only son of Thomas Sturkey, of Newtown, Montgomeryshire, and nephew of the Rev. Thomas Sturkey. formerly rector of Marchwiel. He proceeded in 1878 to Pembroke College, Cambridge, where he graduated B.A. in 1881, and M.A. 1885. He was ordained by the Bishop of Carlisle in 1882 to the curacy of Barton, Cumberland, and three years later transferred to St. Mary's, Carlisle. In 1885 the Earl of Lonsdale conferred upon him the living on Kirk Andrews-on-Eden, with Beaumont. Mr. Sturkey in 1886 published a history of his church, and was a member of the Cumberland and Westmorland Antiquarian Society. He leaves a widow (daughter of Mr. Little, a well-known Penrith solicitor, and agent to Lord Lonsdale) and one son. Chester Old Boys' of his time will ever have kindly memories of their good-humoured colleague. Only on Saturday passed away an' Old King's Scholar' of a much older generation, Dr. Edward Meacham, of Manchester, who only the other day celebrated his golden wedding. Dr. Edward Meacham was born in London on November 29th, 1822, and was in the school under the head- mastership of the Rev. Wm. Paull. He was president of the Old Boys' Association in 1880. He was a M.R.C.S. (Lond.), and did a very great work as the founder of the Medical Mission at Red Bank, one of the worst slums of Man- chester. Dr. Meacham has been a prominent man on the temperance question in Manchester for a long series of years.
