221 (Research):As a Guardian of Scotland (1298-1301 and 1302-1304)Red Comyn often quarreled with the other nobles - in 1299 he was seen to seize the Earl of Carrick (later Robert I ) by the throat. At the Battle of Roslin in 1303, an invading English army led by Sir John Segrave was defeated by Red Comyn. Following the death of Wallace, Bruce and Red Comyn appeared to be moving to an alliance to rise up against Edward. The two met at Greyfriar's Kirk, Dumfries on 10 February 1306. We don't know the details of what happened but during the meeting but Robert the Bruce stabbed Red Comyn. Comyn (and his uncle who was also present) were killed and the following month King Robert I ("The Bruce") was crowned at Scone. Despite the principles of chivalry which prevailed at that time, murder of one noble by another was not unusual in those days. Even so, because it had taken place in a church, Robert the Bruce was excommunicated (at least for a while) by the Pope for his crime. Bruce ruthlessly raided the Buchan lands and destroyed the Comyn family there. When Red Comyn's only son died at the Battle of Bannockburn (fighting for the English) the hereditary office of Constable of Scotland and the castle of Slains were given to the Hays of Errol (who were distantly related). DE BRUCE, Robert ,"The Good Bruce", King Robert I,of Scotland (I19311)

227 (Research):Baden-Powell returned to South Africa prior to the Second Boer War and was engaged in further military actions against the Zulus. He organised the Legion of Frontiersmen to assist the regular army. While engaged in this, he was at Mafeking when it was surrounded by a Boer army, at times in excess of 8,000 men.

He became garrison commander during the Siege of Mafeking, which lasted 217 days. Although greatly outnumbered, the garrison held out until relieved, in part thanks to cunning deceptions devised by Baden-Powell. Fake minefields were planted and his soldiers pretended to avoid non-existent barbed wire while moving between trenches. Baden-Powell did most of the reconnaissance work himself. In one instance noting that the Boers had not removed the rail line, Baden-Powell loaded an armoured locomotive with sharpshooters and successfully sent it down the rails into the heart of the Boer encampment and back again in a strategic attempt to decapitate the Boer leadership.

228 (Research):Ballynagashel is derived from "Baile-na-gcaiseal",a town of the cashels or circular stone forts.

It is probable that this John is the John Kirkpatrick who became involved in the 1789 Rebellion,was tried and sent to Dublin for execution.A local Landlord from Ballymoney spoke on his behalf and he was reprieved and released.Friends in Dublin presented him with a white horse and a carbine for his protection.This carbine survived at Ballynagashel House until the house was eventually sold in the mid-20th century.

229 (Research):Belfast Law firm C & J Black traces its origins back to Sir Samuel Black who commenced practice in Belfast in the 1850s. Sir Samuel later became Town Clerk of Belfast City Council and played a major part in the planning and commissioning of the current City Hall in Donegall Square.

In 1881 his practice was taken over by his sons, Charles and James. From the outset the firm had a strong commercial and private law practice which has been sustained and developed by subsequent partners.

231 (Research):Blackness Castle is a 15th century fortress, near the village of Blackness , Scotland , on the south shore of the Firth of Forth . It was built, probably on the site of an earlier fort, by Sir George Crichton in the 1440s. At this time, Blackness was the main port serving the Royal Burgh of Linlithgow , one of the main residences of the Scottish monarch. The castle, together with the Crichton lands, passed to King James II of Scotland in 1453, and the castle has been crown property eever since.

232 (Research):Born at Closeburn, Dumfriesshire,educated at Wallace Hall, James became a schoolmaster at Moffat Grammar school in 1786,at age 25, and first librarian of the Subscription Library there.

About 1790 he married Jane Simpson, a native of Cumberland. They had 3 daughters. In 1791 he was charged with cruelty to his pupils by the authorities of Moffat, who, with Lord Hopetoun behind them, did all they could to have him discredited. Good friend Robert Burns (Scotland's national bard )took up his cause, writing to Alexander Cunningham on 11th June 1791, on Clarke's behalf.
Burns also drafted the letter for Clarke to send to the Lord Provost of Edinburgh, one of the patrons of the school, asking for a fair hearing; and in 1792, when the row was at its worst, Burns tried to get Clarke another position through the good offices of Robert Riddell. Clarke remained at Moffat, vindicated, until he was appointed, in 1794, master of the Burgh School at Forfar.
There he remained, apparently successful and respected, until 1802, when he became rector at the grammar school in Cupar, Fife. He finally retired to Dollar, where he kept a boarding house and had as a neighbour William Tennant, the author of 'Anster Fair'. Clarke was apparently a good musician and fiddler.
Though at the time of Clarke's trouble, Burns himself was hard-pressed, he seems to have lent the schoolmaster a considerable sum of money, which the schoolmaster was still paying back in small sums at the time of the poet's death. Burns's last letter to him, written on 26th June 1796 from Dumfries, is an acknowledgement of one such repayment, and an appeal for another 'by return of post'. Ref:The Burns Encyclopedia

242 (Research):Civil War Union Major General, Rhode Island Governor, US Senator.

Ambrose attended Liberty Seminary as a young boy, but his education was interrupted when his mother died in 1841 and he was apprenticed to a local tailor, eventually becoming a partner in the business His interest in military affairs and his father's political connections obtained an appointment to the United States Military Academy in 1843, and he graduated from West Point in 1847..

In 1853, Burnside resigned his commission in the United States Army , although maintaining a position in the state militia, and devoted his time and energy to the manufacture of the famous rifle that bears his name.

With the outbreak of the Civil War he raised a regiment and was made a Colonel of the 1st Rhode Island.

He was promoted to Major General in 1862. He was twice offered command of the Army of the Potomac, but refused. He fought at Second Bull Run and Antietam. It was at Antietam, that he led an entire Wing of the army in a slow attack at the Stone Bridge (today called Burnside's Bridge). The delay allowed A. P. Hill's troops to come up from Harper's Ferry and contain the Union breakthrough. Again he was offered command,he again hesitated but accepted. On December 13, 1862, Burnside made numerous assaults against Lee's well-defended army at the Battle of Fredericksburg.

After the war, he was elected three times Governor of Rhode Island. He was the first president of the NRA in 1871.

He was also famous for his strange whiskers, from which the term "sideburns" was coined.
