355 (Research):James Achilles , the promising young British Resident at the Shia court of Hyderabad, fell in love with Khair un-Nissa, an adolescent noblewoman and a descendant of the Prophet Muhammad. It was, to a great extent, James demeanor and his familiarity with and acceptance of the Mughal life style that earned him the genuine affection of the Nizam, who called him 'my beloved son' and conferred on him a series of titles: Mutamin-ul-Mulk, Hushmat Jung, Nawab Fakhr-ud-Dowla Bahadur. In Hyderabad, Kirkpatrick was commonly known as Nawab Hushmat Jung and not by his British name.

Defying convention, James Archilles not only took Khair-unNissa, the great-niece of the region's prime minister, as his mistress, but he eventually converted to Islam and married her, initiating a scandal that rocked two cultures.

His official obituary reads
JOHN GUNNING MOORE DUNLOP.

BORN NOVEMBER 14 Nov 1885, DIED AUGUST 27 Aug 1914.

JOHN GUNNING MOORE DUNLOP was born at Holywood, near Belfast, in the year 1885. His school was Charterhouse, whence he came to Gonville and Caius College as a Scholar in 1905. He gained first -class honours in both parts of the Natural Sciences Tripos, with Chemistry as his chief subject. After taking his degree he was awarded a research studentship by the College, where he remained in residence until the outbreak of the war, devoting himself to chemical research with considerable success, as shown by frequent publications in the Transactions of the Society between 1909 and 1914. During the earlier years of this period, he held the position of Junior Demonstrator in the University Chemical Laboratory, and later undertook some teaching work in College. He was one of the secretaries of the University Chemical Club, and a leading spirit in what may be called the social side of Chemistry. He had always taken a keen interest in military work. For the last few years he had spent nearly all his vacations with the Ulster Volunteers, and he would have been as ready to fight for Ulster as he was for his country. At the outbreak of the war he volunteered at once, and was given a commission in the 2nd Royal Dublin Fusiliers, with whom he went to the front in August.

After Mons he was reported missing. Hope that he might have been made prisoner was not abandoned until November 12th, when a message was received from the American Consul in Berlin stating that Dunlop was killed in action near Clary on August 27th. Three hundred and fifty men and officers of the regiment were cut off in the retreat. Only fifty succeeded in fighting their way through the enemy back to their division. Dunlop was one of those who fell.

371 (Research):John is renowned as a great supporter of the Anti Slavery Movement.
Early in his time in Ripley, John learned that his brother Thomas, a merchant in Augusta County , Virginia , had purchased slaves. He was provoked to write a series of anti-slavery letters to his brother that were published by the editor of the local Ripley newspaper" The Castigator". When the letters were published in book form in 1826 as Letters on Slavery, they provided one of the first clearly articulated anti-slavery views printed west of the Appalachians. Thomas Rankin, convinced by his brother's words, moved to Ohio in 1827 and freed his slaves. By the 1830s, Letters on Slavery had become standard reading for abolitionists all over the United Staates

Elsmore (also known as Ellmore and originally Glenmore) Station of about 50,000 acres (200 km2) was settled by John Campbell in 1838. The first official licensees of this run were Campbell & Muir in 1839. In 1843 the owners were Brown & Alcorn. The recorded stock numbers in 1850 were: 66 horses, 1,300 cattle and no sheep. Alexander Campbell of Inverell Station owned Elsmore in 1852. About 1870, Joseph Wills, a shepherd, is believed to have been the first to find tin in the New England district. These heavy black grains that he found near Elsmore aroused his curiosity. Shortly after selling these to a traveller from Sydney a rush began to search the tin fields around here, Inverell and other nearby areas. The Elsmore mine was the first commercial tin mine in Australia and has produced tin from various alluvial deposits intermittently since 1871. The adjacent Sheep Station Hill has seen only minor scale hard rock and alluvial mining. PENBERTHY, Josiah ,Tin Dresser,of Tavistock ,Cornwall, England (I1763)

389 (Research):Lady Sarah Isabella Augusta Wilson (1865-1929), was the youngest daughter of John Spencer-Churchill, 7th Duke of Marlborough and aunt of Winston Spencer Churchill. In 1899 she became the first woman war correspondent when she was recruited by Alfred Harmsworth to cover the Siege of Mafeking for the Daily Mail during the Boer War. She was invested as a Dame of Grace of the Knights Hospitaler, Order of St. John of Jerusalem (D.G.St.J.). The Daily Mail newspaper recruited Lady Sarah after one of its correspondents, Ralph Hellawell, was arrested by the Boers as he tried to get out of the besieged town of Mafeking to send his dispatch. Lady Sarah was in the right place at the right time to step into the journalistic breach, having moved to Mafeking with her husband, Lieutenant-Colonel Gordon Chesney Wilson Royal Victorian Order (M.V.O.) at the start of the war, where he was aide-de-camp to Colonel Robert Baden-Powell, commanding officer at Mafeking. Baden-Powell asked her to leave Mafeking for her own safety after the Boers threatened to storm the British garrison. This she duly did, and set off on a madcap adventure in the company of her maid, travelling through the South African countryside until she was finally captured by the enemy and returned to the town in exchange for a horse thief being held there. When she re-entered Mafeking she found it had not been attacked as predicted. Instead over four miles of trenches had been dug and 800 bomb shelters built to protect the residents from the constant shelling of the town. Although untrained as a reporter, Lady Sarah soon gained a huge following among Mail readers back in England who appreciated her matter-of-fact writing style. On March 26, 1900, she wrote: "The Boers have been extremely active during the last few days. Yesterday we were heavily shelled and suffered eight casualties … Corporal Ironside had his thigh smashed the day before, and Private Webbe, of the Cape Police, had his head blown off in the brickfields trenches." But although death and destruction surrounded her, the Mail's fledgling war correspondent preferred not to dwell too much on the horrors of the siege. She described cycling events held on Sundays and the town's celebration of Colonel Baden-Powell's birthday which was declared a holiday. Despite these cheery events, dwindling food supplies became a constant theme in the stories she sent back to the Mail and the situation seemed hopeless when the garrison was hit by an outbreak of malarial typhoid. In this weakened state the Boers managed to penetrate the outskirts of the town but the British stood firm and repelled the assault.

The siege finally ended after 217 days when the Royal Horse and Canadian Artillery galloped into Mafeking on May 17, 1900. Only a few people standing in a dusty road, singing Rule Britannia, were there to greet their saviour's. But in London it was a different scene as more than 20,000 people turned out in the streets to celebrate the Relief of Mafeking.

Still later, at the battle of Flodden in 1513, he led part of the Scottish vanguard along with the Earl of Crawford, and fell along with his royal master on the disastrous field.

399 (Research):Mariota is mentioned in the Moray Registrum, which gives her name in Latin and informs us that she came from the lands within the sphere of the bishopric of Ross . She has been described as the Wolf's wife "by Gaelic secular marriage",referring to the fact that the marriage was irregular in church custom and that the Wolf was already married to Euphemia I, Countess of Ross . In 1389, Countess Euphemia, complained to Pope Clement V that her marriage to Buchan was meaningless as the Wolf was cohabiting with Mairead, and the pope subsequently annulled the marriage in late 1392. The Wolf continued his conhabitation with Mairead through the 1390s. The Wolf had seven "bastard" children, all perhaps the children of Mairead. These were Alexander, Sir Andrew of Sandhauch, Donnchadh, James, Walter, Robert, and Margaret (who married Robert Sutherland ,6th Earl of Sutherland ) ATHEYN, Mariota ,daughter of Eachann (I20805)
