157 an English scholar and miscellaneous writer.
Born in London, he was, like his brother, educated at Ealing and subsequently at Oxford, where he had a brilliant career, obtaining a double first class in 1826. He was elected fellow of Balliol College Oxford in the same year. Conscientious scruples respecting the ceremony of infant baptism led him to resign his fellowship in 1830, and be went to Baghdad as assistant in the mission of the Rev. A. N. Groves . In 1833 he returned to England to procure additional support for the mission, but rumours of unsoundness in his views on the doctrine of eternal punishment had preceded him, and finding himself generally looked upon with suspicion, he gave up the vocation of missionary to become classical tutor in an unsectarian college at Bristol. His letters written home during the period of his mission were collected and published in 1856, and form an interesting little volume.
Newman's views matured rapidly, and in 1840 he became Professor of Latin in Manchester New College , the celebrated Unitarian seminary long established at York , and the parent of Manchester College, Oxford . In 1846 he quit this appointment to become professor in University College, London , where he remained until 1869. During all this period he was assiduously carrying on his studies in mathematics and oriental languages, but wrote little until 1847, when he published anonymously a History of the Hebrew Monarchy, intended to introduce the results of German investigation in this department of Biblical criticism. In 1849 appeared The Soul, her Sorrows and Aspirations, and in 1850, Phases of Faith, or Passages from the History of my Creed, the former a tender but searching analysis of the relations of the spirit of man with the Creator; the latter a religious autobiography detailing the author's passage from Calvinism to pure theism . It is on these two books that Professor Newman's celebrity will principally rest, as in them his intense earnestness has kept him free from the eccentricity which marred most of his other writings, excepting his contributions to mathematical research and oriental philology.
Generally, Newman's versatility was amazing: he wrote on logic , political economy , English reforms, Austrian politics, Roman history, diet , grammar , the most abstruse departments of mathematics, Arabic , the emendation of Greek texts, and languages as out of the way as the Berber and as obsolete as the dialect of the Iguvine inscriptions. In treating all these subjects he showed ability, but, wherever the theme allowed, an incurable crotchetiness crept in. In his numerous metrical translations from the classics, especially his version of the Iliad , he betrayed an insensibility to the ridiculous which would almost have justified the irreverent criticism of Matthew Arnold , had this been conveyed in more seemly fashion. His miscellaneous essays, some of much value, were collected in several volumes before his death. His last publication, Contributions chiefly to the Early History of Cardinal Newman (1891), was generally condemned as deficient in fraternal feeling. He was far from possessing his brother's subtlety of reasoning.
His character is vividly drawn by Carlyle in his life of Sterling , of whose son Newman was guardian : a man of fine attainments, of the sharpest-cutting and most restlessly advancing intellect and of the mildest pious enthusiasm. It was his great misfortune that this enthusiasm should have been correlated, as is not unfrequently the case, with an entire insensibility to the humorous side of things.
After his retirement from University College, Francis W. Newman continued to live for some years in London, subsequently removing to Clifton , and eventually to Weston-super-Mare , where he died in 1897. He had been blind for five years before his death, but retained his faculties to the last. He was twice married.

161 Arhtur McIlmoyle, proprietor of the Wellington Hotel, at Apsley, is the grandson of a U.E. Loyalist who settled on the St. Lawrence frontier, and son of Hugh McIlmoyle, one of the old settlers of Smith Township, elsewhere mentioned in these pages. He was born on the father's farm in Smith, in 1851. He remained at home till about twenty years of age, when he wnet to the United States, and during two years' absence from Canada, travelled widely and gained much valuable experience, besides saving some money. In 1872 he came to the present Villiage of Apsley, where he opened a hotel and built a blacksmith shop - both of which were well conducted and conduced materially to the convenience of travellers and settlers, as well as to the general advancement of the new settlement. From the start, Mr. McIlmoyle's enterprise was rewarded with success; and his son purchased a building of his own, in which to carry on the hotel business, at the junction of the Burleigh and Wellington Government roads. This building has since been added to, with the increased demand of his business. Mr. McIlmoyle is known to a very large constituency as a shrewd and observing business man - quick to take advantage of a ligitimate bargain, but honourable in a his transactions. He is married to Esther, daughter of Robert Clapperton, from London, England. He has filled the position of Treasurer of the Municipality of Burleigh with acceptability to the people, and is one of the most popular men in the community.

165 At the time of the birth of her first son Ernest Augustus Slade in 1834, Mary Ann Curran lived in Castlereagh Street/Macquarie Street Sydney Town which is the site of the old convict barracks in Sydney also know as the Hyde Park Barracks. By the birth certificate of her son Ernest Augustus, Mary appears not to be married at the time of his birth. Although she named her son after the father, Ernest Augustus Slade. No marriage seems to have taken place. It is believed that the family had a name change but it looks like that some family members just used Mary’s maiden name from this time hence, this would be the Victorian’s family surname Curran. But some members of the family stayed in NSW and Queensland using the name of Slade! Mary Ann’s mother Mary Ann Curran (née Hatton) died in 1833 before the birth of her daughter’s son Ernest Augustus Slade 11. There fore it is most likely she did not have the support of her mother at the time of his birth and it is most likely that she had no idea that her daughter was with child. It is known that Mary Ann lived with Ernest Augustus Slade until he left the colony in 1836.
In 1841 Mary Ann marries a William Brady. First child to this marriage was born (1) 1841 Mary A (2) 1842 Elizabeth J (3) 1844 Matilda J (4) 1845 William (5) 1848 Charles T (6) Mary Ann dies in 1885 65 years.

177 Aubrey de Vere, 2nd Earl of Oxford and Great Chamberlain, succeeded in 1194. He fought alongside Richard Lionheart in Normandy and was later to command King John's forces in Ireland, [where King John had upset the local chieftains of the country]. Aubrey, EO2, was Sheriff of Essex and Herefordshire from the 10th to the 15th year of King John. He was a Privy Councilor and also Steward of the vast estates of Epping Forest in 1213. The Castle at Hedingham was completed during EO2's lifetime, along with the curtain wall around the castle keep. That curtain wall has since disappeared and the area around the keep now features a small wooded area which were planted around 1719. In its day as a military stronghold, the entire surrounding area was kept clear of undergrowth, ensuring unhindered views from the battlements of any approaching danger. EO2 was reputed by some as one of the "evil councilors" of King John. De Vere died in 1214 without issue, and his brother Robert succeeded him as 3rd earl of Oxford.

De Vere, Aubrey 2nd Earl of Oxford (I7749)
 
178 Aubrey de Vere, first Earl of Oxford, was born circa 1130. He was, by tenure, the third Baron of Kensington, and Count of Ghisnes through his marriage, was confirmed also in the office of Great Lord Chamberlain, and all his father's territorial possessions. Aubrey de Vere at first might have become "Earl of Cambridge," but in the end he was created Earl of Oxford. Technically, he was made an earl by the Empress Matilda, and had been offered a choice of title from either Cambridge, Oxford, Berkshire, Wiltshire or Dorset, "provided the King of the Scots had it not." He chose Oxford, becoming the 1st earl of Oxford, a title that was later confirmed by Henry II, and would continue for another 20 generations. In January 1156 Henry II, by a fresh charter, granted him its 'thirdpenny' as earl. In addition to his title Aubrey III was also given the customary grant: "a third of the penny of the pleas of the county, as an earl ought to have." How did he win such a reward? Apparently Aubrey III had joined his brother-in-law, Earl Geoffrey, in intriguing with the Empress, and, through his influence, obtained from her at Oxford in 1142 this remarkable charter. The new earl was an ardent supporter of the Empress Matilda, who frequently came to Hedingham Castle as a guest of de Vere. Confusing things a bit is the fact that there were simultaneously two famous Matildas, one the Empress and wife of Henry II, the other, the former Queen and widow to King Stephen. The widow Matilda also was a visitor to Hedingham, and she died there on the May 3, 1152. In 1166, the 12th year of King Henry II, on the levy of the aid for portioning the king's daughter, the Earl of Oxford certified his knight's fees to be in number 28, for which he paid 20 pounds, and in the 2nd year of King Richard I , he paid a fine of 500 marks to the king, "for the sister of Walter de Bolebec, to make a wife for his son." In four years afterwards he contributed 30 pounds, 2 shillings, and 6 pence for the knight's fees he then held, towards the sum at that time raised for the ransom of the king. He is said to have founded the priories at Hedingham and at Ickleton, Cambridgeshire. Aubrey III was another crusader/veteran who was known as "Aubrey the Grim," perhaps because of his height and stern appearance. The first Earl of Oxford married (1) Euphamia Cantilupe, daughter of William de Cantilupe, by whom he had no issue, and (2) Lucia Abrincis, daughter and heiress of William de Abrincis, by whom he had the following children:
1. Aubrey de Vere, his successor (EO2), 2. Robert de Vere, who succeeded his brother, Aubrey, as EO3, 3. William de Vere, Bishop of Hereford in 1186, who died in 1199, *4. Henry de Vere, *5. Adeliza Vere, *6. Sarah Vere.
In his 'Historia Comitum Ardensium' (Pertz, vol. xxiv.), Lambert of Ardres, speaks of Aubrey as 'Albericus Aper' in his account of the comté of Guines. (Aper is Latin for Boar) Aubrey died in 1194. His monument's inscription describes him as the "Earl of Ghisnes and 1st Earl of Oxford."

179 Aubrey II, eldest son of Albericus, succeeded his father on his death. Aubrey II was responsible for building the great castle-keep at Hedingham. The Archbishop of Canterbury, William de Corbeuil, was his architect. The castle, which is the best preserved Norman keep in Europe, is faced with Ashlar stone, which was transported all the way from the quarries of Barnack in Northamptonshire. This was a complex operation, of great expense to Aubrey, but it guaranteed that the castle could withstand all kinds of weather and considerable bombardment. as well as making it handsome and impressive to look at. Very few Norman Castles were faced with stone as at Hedingham; normally, only the doors and windows were faced with cut stone. Aubrey married Alice FitzRichard of Clare [a.k.a. Adeliza Tonebruge], daughter of Gilbert FitzRichard feudal lord of Clare) and grand-daughter of Hugh de Clermont, Count of Clermont and his wife Marguerita. Alice became a nun at St. Osyth's Priory after the death of her husband. He and his wife had the following children:
1. Alberic, or Aubrey de Vere, 2. _______ de Vere, canon of St. Osyth's in Essex, 3. Robert de Vere, Lord of Twiwell, co. Northampton, 4. Geoffrey de Vere, 5. William de Vere, Chancellor of England, 6. Adeliza Vere, married Henry de Essex, 7. Juliana Vere, married Hugh Bigod, Earl of Norfolk, 8. Rohesia Vere, married (1) Geoffrey Mandeville, Earl of Oxford, and (2) Payne Beauchamp, of Bedford.
Aubrey II participated in the First Crusade in 1098. Legend has it that while Aubrey was fighting in the gruesome battle for Antioch against the skilled troops of the Sultan of Persia's, the sky was darkening with the close of day, and there was confusion on the battlefield. At just the moment when the Saracens were taking advantage of the darkness, a brilliant five-pointed star appeared [either in the sky, or on the flag being carried by de Vere's men]. The battlefield was said to have been illuminated, and a great victory was won over the Sultan's troops. This apocryphal story is probably told in attempt to explain the unique heraldic symbol of the Vere line - the five pointed mullet star. Alternately the single silver star on the Vere arms may represent the Star seen by the Magi, as described in the Gospels. The symbol is just as likely to derive from the spur, as the star, but in any case it is likely a remembrance of Aubrey II's involvement in the crusade to take back the Holy Land. In 1125 Aubrey was made joint Sheriff of London. Together with Richard Basset, the two men held the shrievalty of eleven counties 'ut custodes' for the crown. In 1130 he became indebted to the crown for a large sum after a prisoner (for whom he was responsible) escaped. He also paid a fine for permission to resign the shrievalty of Essex and Hertfordshire. Aubrey II was in high favor with King Henry I, and by that monarch (on the occasion of his leaving England) was constituted, in 1133 at Fernham, as Great High Chamberlain of England - to hold the same in fee to himself and his heirs. He replaced Robert Malet, Lord of Eye in Suffolk, who had been banished and disinherited from that office. The title given was meant to be hereditary and all subsequent holders of this office were his descendents. However, throughout the later middle ages, there were various periods when the de Vere family fell out of favor with the Crown, and didn't properly regain the LGC title until after Richard III's defeat at Bosworth Field. He attended King Stephen as chamberlain at Westminster and also at Winchester in 1136. When King Stephen in 1139 was called upon to defend his arrest of the bishops before a council, he selected as his advocate Aubrey, whom William of Malmesbury describes as 'causidicus' and as practiced in (legal) cases. While serving as joint sheriff of Surrey, Cambridge, Essex, and other counties, Alberic was slain during a popular uprising or riot in London on May 15, 1141. He was buried in Colne Priory. Aubrey II left four sons, Aubrey III, Robert, Geoffrey and William, and was succeeded by his eldest, Aubrey de Vere III.

194 BIOGRAPHY: 10th Earl of Oxford. He was the second son of John de Vere, 7th Earl of Oxford. The title passed to his brother, Thomas (8th earl of Oxford), and then to his nephew, Thomas's son, Robert de Vere (9th earl of Oxford). Robert was a favorite of King Richard II, who created him Duke of Ireland. "These high honours exciting the jealousy of the nobles, and the favourite bearing his fortune imperiously," Robert's enemies demanded that the King dismiss him as a traitor. He fled in disguise to France, then returned with a force of 4000 or 5000 men. He was met at Radcote Bridge by the Earl of Derby and Duke of Gloucester, "wher his troops being surrounded, he could secure personal safety only by abandoning his two gauntlets and armour, and thus swimming down the stream." His enemies discovered letters to him from the King, "calling on him to hasten to London, and the Monarch would be ready to live or die for him." He was attainted by a Parliament called soon after his defeat, outlawed, banished, and stripped of his honors. He died in France in about 1392, wounded by a wild boar while hunting. The earldom was subsequently restored to his uncle, Aubrey, in 1392.
