157 9 January 1867 - Tinings Pit, Radstock

He was at the top of an underground incline trying to let a tub of coal down when the chain broke and possibly the back-lash killed him but he was alone so no one can say for certain. Perhaps, finding the velocity very great he had applied the brake too violently.

158 A BLAENAVON scientist who died in the Antarctic has been remembered, 50 years after his death.

After obtaining a Zoology BSc in 1959 from Swansea University, Roger Filer went to Signy Island to take part in research on the sheathbill bird, as part of the British Antarctic Survey.

It was his dedication to his work that cost him his life. He fell over a cliff, thought to have been attempting to remove chicks from their nest for measuring and ringing, in 1961.

His sister, Ann, and her husband Derek Clarke, attended a special service at St Paul's Cathedral in London, where a memorial plaque was dedicated to Mr Filer and 28 other scientists who lost their lives in the Antarctic.

At the service, director of the British Antarctic Survey Professor Nicholas Owens spoke about the contribution that those who had died had made to the scientific research programme and that they has not been forgotten.

The memorial acts as a record of how the Antarctic is now and is made out of Welsh slate.

Mrs Clarke said: "I felt very proud to see Roger honoured in such a way and I knowmy parents would have, too."

Mr Filer was born in Blaenavon, to William and Alice Filer, and attended Abersychan Grammar School.

160 A humorous story is told of one of the earliest appearances on the concert platform of Noel Fleming, the sweet-voiced tenor of the Williamson, Clarke and Meynell 'Chocolate Soldier' company. Mr Fleming, who was appearing with Clara Butt and Kennerley Rumford in the Albert Hall, London, came on to the platform, and the audience hushed as he was about to begin his song. In the front seats were his wife and little girl, the latter a mere toddler. The latter sighted him, and through the stillness a gleeful voice piped: "There's daddy! See him, mummy, in his good clothes!"

[Note: The Chocolate Soldier was a musical version of Bernard Shaw's 'Arms and the Man', music by Oscar Straus. Noel played the leading tenor part in Australia and New Zealand in 1911-12.]

163 A native of Virginia's Eastern Shore, Mifflin came to Delaware as a young man.

Born into a slaveholding Quaker family, he manumitted his own slaves in 1774-75 and later became one of America's foremost abolitionists of the 18th century.

As an elder of the Religious Society of Friends, he traveled extensively to convince others to free their slaves. He addressed the legislatures of several states and presented numerous petitions and memorials to the United States Congress opposing slavery and the abuse of free blacks.

In 1788, he was one of the founders of Delaware's first abolition society.

Warner Mifflin was recognized internationally for his antislavery efforts and is credited with assisting a great number of African-Americans in obtaining their freedom. He was an advocate for peace during the American Revolution.

At the time of the Battle of Germantown, Mifflin was a member of a committee of Quakers that traveled to meet with both American General Washington and British General Howe to present a testimony against war.

He was laid to rest here following his death on October 16, 1798. Warner Mifflin was widely known and respected for his brave efforts to promote "righteousness, mercy and peace, among mankind."

164 A very pretty home wedding took place at the residence of Mr. and Mrs. W.K. Rodway on West Quincy Avenue last Thursday afternoon, April 12, the high contracting parties being Miss Emma Lasbury, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas Lasbury of this city and Mr. Charles H. McConnell, of Leaman, Ill. The happy twain entered the parlor promptly at 2 o'clock to a wedding march played by Miss Mary Rodway, niece of the bride, which was splendidly rendered. The ceremony was immediately performed by Rev. N. L. Burton of the Congregational Church.

The bride was dressed in a very pretty spring traveling suit, and the groom in usual style. After congratulations, the guests, of whom there were about forty, partook in an elegant supper in the dining room. The intervening time until the arrival of the 6:13 train was spent pleasantly in music and social converse, when they left for a few days at Decatur and other points before going to their future home at Leaman.

The bride is a popular and accomplished young lady who has alway moved in Griggsville's best society, and has friends inumerable. The groom is to be congratulated on his selection of a help-mate, and it is believed the bride is equally fortunate. Mr. McConnell is a prominent and industrious young business man of his town and highly spoken of by all who know him.

The presents were both numerous and valuable.

Mr. and Mrs. McConnell have the best wishes of all for their future happiness and prosperity.

167 Accident at Wellsway Colliery - 1st August 1899

Albert Cray with others had entered the cage in order to ascend the shaft but owing to a misunderstanding as regards the signals in the absence of a regular hitcher, the engineman lowered the cage into the sump in which there was hot water from condensed steam. They were all more or less severely scalded and this man died from the effects on the 15th.

The hitcher who had left the pit and the overman who did not replace him were returned by the Coroner's jury for manslaughter.

Died from severe scalds received at Welleway Colliery, Radstock
A misunderstanding between the engineman and banksman resulted in a tragic error.

With John Dando and Alfred Wilton, Albert Cray entered the middle deck of a three decker cage to be drawn up. When in, Lewis Hills signalled to the engine driver, William Beaverstock to pull up a little to allow others to get on to the lower deck.

The cage ascended about a foot and was then lowered into a sump hole which contained boiling water. Hills was not sufficiently experienced to put on the catches (brakes) to stop the cage being lowered into the sump for he was not the regular man for "rapping". He was John Davis who received an extra shilling a week to perform the duty.

Beaverstock who had been employed at the pit 24 years said he had not received the proper signal to ascend which was three knocks and should have been given when somebody entered the cage.
The upper deck of the cage was usually filled first and for this purpose the lower deck had to be lowered into the sump.

Benjamin Gullick who was on the upper deck said he had heard no signal. He admitted he was breaking a rule when he himself failed to signal upon enterlng.

Edward Gregory of Midsomer Norton, a miner for fifty years (30 of them at Welleway) said he did not hear a single signal and did not understand the rapping. He had never read the rules. Simon Simmons and Frederick Gregory had been in the cage with him.

The inquest jury decided that there was a case to answer by John Davis the rapper, who it was said left his post before time and Eli Hamilton, the under-bailiff of the colliery.

Both men were arrested on a charge of manslaughter and admitted to bail.

A year ago, Mr. McFetridge had passed through grave illness, and although able to be up and about his home since that time, he had gone about the city little because of failing eyesight.

About 1903 he was transferred by the company to its plant in San Francisco, but after a few years on the coast returned to Alton. Subsequently he was employed at the Standard Oil Co. refinery in Wood River, and under the administration of Mayor Crawford served as a policeman.

Although retired for a number of years past, he assisted at rush times in the grocery store of his son, George r. McFetridge at Ninth and Henry streets. His lodge connection was with Robin Hood Camp of Modern Woodmen of which he was, in age, the fourth oldest member. he affiliated with the camp in 1910.

McFetridge was united in marriage in early life with Miss Louise Barth of this city whose death occurred in 1928. Surviving are a daughter, Miss Eunice McFetridge, and two sons, George R. of this city and James McFetridge of San Francisco.

190 Arthur Joseph, born in Midsomer Norton in 1870, was the son of Thomas Colborne, also a builder and timber merchant who by 1873 was established at the Cross Roads, Stratton St. Margaret.

From 1876-1940 the Colborne family built a staggering number of properties in Swindon. The father and son firm built houses in a street off County Road close to their business premises which was later named after them, although the spelling has since been changed to Colbourne. Despite being on the verge of bankruptcy in 1911-13 A.J. Colborne continued in business until the late 1930s.

The Ordnance Survey Map dated 1889 shows Westcott Street School surrounded by fields, however by 1900 the whole length of Birch Street was built up.

The Bishop and Pritchett sale included eight lots in Birch Street although whether Colborne built these remains unknown. Lots 1-3 comprised nine, two bedroomed houses and lots 6, 7, and 8 a total of 10 houses, numbers 56-65 Birch Street.

Lot 4 was a shop and dwelling house at 10 Birch Street let at 8s a week (40p about 31 today). The property included a double fronted window, open space for standing goods and a paved yard with side entrance and garden. The living accommodation consisted of a "Sitting Room, 3 Bedrooms, Good Living Room, Wash house and pantry."

The Swindon Advertiser reported that Levi Lapper Morse bought two lots, 13 Gloucester Street and 7 Weymouth Street for 380 (about 29,500 at today's values).

The only other lot to change hands was Lot 5, numbers 25-27 Birch Street. Mr. A. Mold paid 525 (over 40,700 today) for the three houses described as containing a "Lobby, Passage, Parlour, 3 Bedrooms, Living Room and Back Kitchen with Coal House and WC. The properties had gardens with rear access and 'forecourts with palisading.'

Despite the pre sale hype and 'a good company present' on the day, the sale proved disappointing - the powers of advertising not quite what they are today!

196 At the Petty Sessions Elizabeth Authorina Chard of Church Square, Midsomer Norton applied for a separation order against her husband Arthur Thomas Chard quarryman of Moon's Hill, Gurney Slade on the grounds of persistent cruelty. They married 1 May 1900 and there were 5 children. At that time her husband was a farmer with 18 cows and 70 acres of land, under his father. The Complainant alleged that owing to drink he neglected his business and as a result was now a quarryman. Whilst under the influence of drink he had kicked her and neglected her and the children. On 2nd April she left home because she was in danger of her life. On March 30th he threatened to commit a "good murder" between Gurney Slade and Old Down before the morning and between 12 and 1 o clock he beat her. On the following day she asked him what he meant by his remarks and he threatened to "spade her into pieces with a spade". He told her to leave him and he would allow her 25s a week to keep away. On 1st April he came home and found her in the house and told her to go. In August 1911 her mother took one of the children and the defendant at once stopped some of the money he paid to her for household purposes because there were not so many children to keep. If she earned any money milking he would stop the equivalent out of her weekly allowance. She was afraid to go back to him because he was so cruel to her. Ivan Chard, aged 11, said he had seen his father hit his mother on many occasions. The noise his father made at night had kept them awake. Evelyn Chard, aged 10, corroborated and said she saw her father on one occasion sharpen a bill-hook and he said he would chop their heads off. The defendant denied he was cruel and said he was a loving and devoted husband. He was willing to take his wife back and keep a happy home. Defendant alleged that his wife wanted to go to Midsomer Norton to live with her people, and consequently left his home. He described his wife's story as a pure invention. The Bench granted the separation order and ordered the defendant to contribute 10s a week towards his wife's maintenance. Mrs Chard was given the custody of the children and the defendant was ordered to pay the costs of 1-13-6d. Chard, Arthur Thomas (I40913)
