404 (Research):Mary was crowned at the Chapel Royal, Stirling Castle on 9th September, 1543. She was but nine months old at the time and as yet unable to walk. At six years of age, Mary was betrothed to the young heir to the French throne, the Dauphin Francois. She spent the rest of her childhood at the court of her father-in-law, Henri II. Mary was a pretty child and brought up in the same nursery as her future husband and his siblings, became very attached to him. Mary was married to the Dauphin Francois on 24 April, 1558 at Notre Dame. She corresponded regularly Mary of Guise , who remained in Scotland to rule as regent for her daughter.

Mary also possessed an hereditary claim to the throne of England, through her grandmother, Margaret Tudor, eldest daughter of Henry VII. On the accession of Elizabeth I of England, considered by the Catholics to be illegitimate, Mary's father-in-law quartered the arms of England with those of the Queen of Scots, thereby declaring her the true heiress to England. Elizabeth was never to forget this insult and her father-in-law's actions were to have disastrous results for Mary in the future.

409 (Research):Middle Temple is one of the four Inns of Court which have the exclusive right to Call men and women to the Bar.

In the 13th century, the Inns of Court originated as hostels and schools for student lawyers. The Middle Temple is the western part of "The Temple", the headquarters of the Knights Templar until they were dissolved in 1312; the awe-inspiring Temple Church still stands as a "peculiar" church of the Inner and Middle Temples. There has never been an "Outer Temple", apart from a Victorian-era office block of that name - an order of 1337 mentions the "lane through the middle of the Court of the Temple", used by chancery justices and clerks on their way to Westminster , which became known as Middle Temple Lane and probably gave its name to the Inn.(The Inn is comprised of student, barrister and Bench members and is governed by the Masters of the Bench. The Head of the Inn is the Treasurer.)

The Family had their origins in the West Counties of Devon and Cornwall. Their direct line can be traced back to the Reverend Samuel Cory of Rattery, Devon and Dorothy Bamphylde of Black Torrington who were married in 1663.

John Cory made a last minute decision to accompany his son Edward to Australia. Within three months, of his arrival he decided he too was prepared to invest in the Colony. His first grant of land, which he called Cory Vale was approved in 1824. He spent nearly four years in the Colony before returning to England at the request of his wife, sailing from Sydney in August 1827. After his return to England he lived at Ashton House just outside the village of Poughill in Cornwall.

A young man named George Ryan was shot dead yesterday evening by another man named William Stone, on the Euabalong-road, two miles from Condobolin. Stone had been keeping company with a young woman named Alice Anderson. The three met at the racecourse yesterday, and some words ensued between Alice and Stone, because she rode with Ryan to the races. She gave Stone to understand that she did not return his affection, that she had had enough of him. This seems to have exasparated him, but nothing more was heard of the matter until Alice and Ryan were going home about 5 o'clock. When about two miles out of town Stone ran out from some brush at the side of the road and pointed a gun at Alice. Her horse took fright and bolted. Ryan dismounted and caught hold of the gun. Stone pointed it close to Ryan's stomach and fired. Ryan fell, whereupon Stone shot him again in the back. Ryan received altogether 27 wounds, and died from hamorrhage. The body was brought into Condobolin and presented in ghastly appearance. An inquest was held this morning and a verdict of murder was returned against Stone Shortly after the tragedy Stone galloped off. The police are now out trying to affect his capture.

415 (Research):Of all the Grahams of Claverhouse, the most notorious was John Graham, Viscount Dundee, immortalised by Sir Walter Scott in the song "Bonnie Dundee," who lives in Covenanting annals as the most hated of the royal officers, who fell at the moment of victory at the battle of Killiecrankie in 1689. GRAHAM, Robert ancestor of the Fintry and Claverhouse branches (I7935)
 
416 (Research):On 14 February 1613,she married Frederick V, then Elector of the Palatinate in Germany, and took up her place in the court at Heidelberg . Frederick was the leader of the association of Protestant princes in the Holy Roman Empire known as the Evangelical Union , and Elizabeth was married to him in an effort to increase her father James's ties to these princes.

In 1619, Frederick was offered and accepted the crown of Bohemia. Elizabeth was crowned Queen of Bohemia on 7 November 1619, three days after her husband was crowned King of Bohemia. Frederick's rule was extremely brief, and thus Elizabeth became known as the " Winter Queen ". Driven into exile, the couple took up residence in The Hague, and Frederick died in 1632. Elizabeth remained in Holland even after her son, Charles I Louis, regained his father's electorship in 1648.

Following the Restoration of the English and Scottish monarchies, she travelled to London to visit her nephew,Charles II , and died while there. Elizabeth's youngest daughter, Sophia of Hanover, had in 1658 married the future Elector of Hanover. The Electress Sophia became the nearest Protestant relative to the English, Scottish and Irish crowns (later British crown). Under the English Act of Settlement , the succession was settled on Sophia and her issue, so that all monarchs of Great Britain frrom George I are descendants of Elizabeth.

417 (Research):On 31 October 1821 John Oxley married Emma Norton* (1798-1885) at St Philip's Church. They had two sons, John (b.1824) and Henry (b.1826), but earlier Oxley had had two daughters by Charlotte Thorpe and one by Elizabeth Marnon.( This child drowned ,aged 3, in a well opposite Oxley's Sydney house in Macquarie street.)

*Oxley married Emma Norton (1798-1885),(Ref:NSW BDM 2823/1821 V18212823 3B), the youngest sister of James Norton who had followed her brother out to New South Wales from Sussex after he had established himself as an attorney in the colony.Oxley and Emma Norton had two sons. The elder, John Norton Oxley became a Member of the Legislative Assembly. The younger son, Henry Molesworth Oxley, also became a Member of the Legislative Assembly.

These records will detail the descendants of John Oxley and Charlotte Jane Thorpe.

Oxley kept a substantial town house in Sydney, opposite St James's Church, and he built a fine country seat at Kirkham (a 600 acre estate near Camden,NSW ,granted to him by Governor Lachlan Macquarie).

John Oxley died virtually penniless , and the Executive Council felt compelled to recommend special assistance to his widow and children.

418 (Research):On 6 July 1899 the Worturpa district was officially declared a goldfield. T.S. Backhouse was the first Adelaide investor to arrive on the field coming from Copley where he owned and worked an eighty acre lease adjoining the Mountain of Light . Soon he was followed by many other hopeful diggers, businessmen and investors. Many companies took up claims and leases and the Stubbs brothers sold their claim to the Worturpa Reward Syndicate. On 28 July Goldfield Warden L.C.E. Gee arrived on the field to select a site for a town. Miner's rights for the goldfield were issued at Copley by old Sliding Rock identity Mr J.W. Duck . Prospects looked so inviting that Mr Napier of Farina and Dobson and Reed from Hawker were putting up their stores. There was often more money to be made from supplying the diggers than being a digger! Even Mr Downs had loaded his hotel on wagons and hoped to have it on the road, which was already littered with numerous broken down vehicles, and have it erected at Worturpa in the shortest possible tiime.

421 (Research):On the 31st of January,1804 John, Master of The Henry Addington,was part of a fleet of sixteen small merchant ships that departed China under Capt Nathaniel Dance,acting Commodore of the fleet.On the 14th February a strange sail was spotted to leeward.This was a French convoy, identified as Rear Admiral Linois' squadron, consisting of one line of battle ship,three frigates and one brig,including the 74 gun Marengo. The Frenchman sent his fleet to cut the merchant ships off,but had badly underestimated the bravery ,and skill of the HEICS Captains ,and crews.After a 45 minute battle,the French were soundly defeated, and hauled their wind and sailed away.The British gave chase for a short time. For their efforts the acting Commodore was knighted, presented with a commemorative sword ,valued at 100 pounds, two thousand guineas,and a piece of plate(a vase) by Lloyds Patriotic Fund. John Kirkpatrick and the other captains were presented with a commemorative sword each,valued at 50 pounds,five hundred guineas(Captain Timmins was given one thousand guineas ) ,and a piece of plate.

"A register of ships, employed in the service of the Honorable the United The East India Company 1760-1810" by Horatio Charles Hardy,1811, catalogues Johns service.

He is first seen in 1787-1788 , as a junior member of the crew ,aboard the "Earl Talbot",under Capt John Woolmore, 1791-1792 on the "Lascelles" under Capt.Richard A. Farrington,1793-1794 on the "Albion",under Capt.William Wells,1795-1796 he was 1st Officer on the "Albion",under Capt.Andrew Timbrell,1797-1799 does not appear in the ships crew lists,1800-1801 as 1st Officer on "The Henry Addington",under Capt.Thomas Wakefield. On 25 th August 1802 John was sworn in as Captain , and given charge of the " Henry Addington".

He captained this ship from 1802 until at least 1809. The original ship named "Henry Addington" was lost in 1798,the new ship of that name was built in 1800 by the owner David Hunter,Esq,of Old South Sea House,Broad Street,London.

In his obituary ,it is written that he might have "risen to the highest honours in that profession(the British Navy),but his fate ordained him to acquire independance in another way,and he used the advantages of it,on the occasions where his friendship,or charity was called upon,with unbounded liberality". This would indicate that John trained in the British Naval Service prior to enlisting in the HEICS.

430 (Research):Possibly the John Kirkpatrick listed in the 1775 Dissenters Petitions. The Penal Laws, passed after 1691 mainly by the Irish Parliament, were designed to restrict the religious, political and economic activities of Roman Catholics so that they would not have the means to threaten the Protestant (Anglican or Church of Ireland) monopoly of power. As a result Roman Catholics were excluded, for example, from political power at local and national level; from holding land on long leases and from many of the professions as well as the armed forces.

However Dissenters, those Protestants who were not members of the Church of Ireland, were also affected by the Penal Laws. These were largely Presbyterians who formed a sizeable proportion of the population in Ulster and were seen by the Established Church of Ireland as posing just as big a threat as Roman Catholics. Consequently, they too suffered from religious and political discrimination. Presbyterians, for example, could not be married legally except in a Church of Ireland church and the ceremony performed by a Church of Ireland clergyman. Discrimination against Dissenters was further extended in 1704 when the Irish Parliament passed an Act to prevent the further growth of popery. This prevailed until 1782.

This Act contained a clause imposing a 'Sacramental Test' for public offices that applied equally to all Protestant Dissenters. The Sacramental Test required those seeking or holding office to take communion at the Church of Ireland. Many Dissenters refused to do so and were thereby excluded from political and civic influence, and from the learned professions (apart from medicine) and other occupations requiring the oath. The Test was not removed until 1780. Attempts to limit the powers of Dissenters continued throughout the 18th century.

In 1774, the Irish Parliament passed an Act excluding them from voting at vestry meetings of the Church of Ireland. This greatly angered Ulster Protestants who in protest petitioned Parliament in October and November 1775 and as a result the Act was repealed in 1776.

431 (Research):Prosper Mérimée (28 September 1803 - 23 September 1870) was a French dramatist, historian , archaeologist , and short story writer.Mérimée met and befriended the Countess of Montijo in Spain in 1830 whom he credited as being his source for the Carmen story. Together with the countess, he coached her daughter, Eugenie, during the courtship with Napoleon III (though his correspondence indicates Mérimée was opposed to their marriage). When the daughter became the Empress Eugénie of France in 1853, Mérimée was made a senator.

436 (Research):Recent research suggests that four of Margaret Wilson's brothers (like many other Covenanters) had fled to Ulster in the early 1680s.

In the 16 page pamphlet Margaret Wilson the Martyr; a Genealogical Account of the Wilson Family of Penninghame Parish by John G Wilson (House of Kilwinnet Publications, 1998), it says: "...in the McKinney Papers, which are held in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland. A correspondent of mine examined the papers in 1984... a tradition that three brothers, Robert, Samuel and John, arrived in Ireland in an open boat in 1684. Robert married and had a daughter Margaret, and little more is known of him.

Samuel married Martha Kirkpatrick in 1732.

John (b. 1660 or 1666) having arrived in County Antrim in 1684 (bringing with him an oak chair and chest) was at Carrickfergus in 1690 to meet William of Orange. John was given lands at Rashee, Ballyclare.

If the McKinney papers are correct then it would appear that the three brothers were older children of Gilbert Wilson in Glenvernoch...

William Wilson married Elizabeth McIlroy and went to Ulster with his brothers Robert, Samuel and John - though not to the same part of Ulster. The Kirkpatrick family tree in the Public Record Office of Northern Ireland records a William as one of the three brothers who crossed in an open boat. This William died in 1721..."

441 (Research):Ref:"Bungarribee Homestead Complex" - Archaeological Site,NSW Govt. of Environment and Heritage

The land on which the Bungarribee house site and farm estate are located was originally occupied by the people of the Warrawarry group of the Darug people. They were based around Eastern Creek and the surrounding forest and grassland and used these for food and shelter, hunting and gathering a wide array of animal and plant foods including fresh water fish, crayfish and shellfish.

A close examination of the documentation of Governor Phillip's first exploration of Parramatta's western hinterland in April 1788 reveals that the orthodox view that he went only as far as Prospect Hill or a lttle beyond is deeply flawed. His party is much more likely to have traversed Toongabbie, Seven Hills and Blacktown to climb Bungarribee Hill, Doonside and reaching Eastern Creek and Rooty Hill (Flynn, 1995, 9).

By the time of European settlement in the western regions after 1790, the original Aboriginal groups had been severely affected by an outbreak of smallpox that had first devastated the groups closest to the European settlement but rapidly spread through the entire Sydney district. Many of the surviving groups in the west had likely begun to come together to form amalgamated bands in order to survive.

Inn 1823 that the first attempts were made at drafting a Maltese Criminal Code.Sir John Richardson, a distinguished Justice of the High Court of England came to Malta for health reasons. Dr Ignazio Gavino Bonavita, a Magistrate of Judicial Police, wrote a 115-page memorandum on the state of the Criminal Laws of Malta and submitted it to Richardson. Bonavita explained at length why the existing laws were unstable, uncertain and confusing, stressing that reforms could not be delayed further. He specifically disagreed with the adoption of English Criminal Law to the Maltese scenario on the basis that "the laws governing a nation must be suitable for that nation, even on religious grounds.

Sir John Stoddart, who was appointed Chief Justice of the Maltese Courts in 1826, and Ignazio Gavino Bonavita who was appointed Justice of the Superior Courts a year later, were also key players in this codification process. Bonavita suggested the appointment of a person or a committee composed of a few competent individuals to compile the Criminal Code.

Stoddart prepared a "Plan of Legal Reform" and advised that it be implemented by one or more British lawyers to be brought over from England for the purpose.
The Colonial Secretary endorsed Stoddart's views and directed Stoddart to consult Barron Field, the First Judge of the Supreme Court at Gibraltar and John Kirkpatrick, the Chief Judge of the Ionian Islands. Kirkpatrick raised two objections. First of all he objected to the fact that no Maltese judge had been appointed to serve on this Commission. Secondly, he was also contrary to the wholesale introduction of English law in Maltese statute books for the simple reason that the Maltese scenario did not tally perfectly with the English one. Following Kirkpatrick's objection two Maltese judges Dr Claudio Vincenzo Bonnici and Dr Ignazio Gavino Bonavita were asked to join this commission alongside. In 1832 Kirkpatrick had to leave for Corfu
