2702 Y-DNA analysis of Robert's descendants shows that Robert was descended in the male line from the Grants of Corrimony in the Braes of Glenurquhart. The first Grant of Corrimony, John Grant, was a younger son of John Grant 2nd of Freuchie (called Am Bard Ruadh) and his wife Margaret, daughter of Sir James Ogilvie, of Deskford. There is no record of when he was born, but from the circumstance that his father and mother were married in 1484, the date may approximately be fixed as between the years 1487 and 1490. On 8th December, 1509, he received a Charter under the Great Seal of the Barony of Corrimony, from King James IV.

There is clearly an Elizabeth Loveden daughter of Edward Loveden of Buscot and Jane Seymour born 1637 (before the 1664 Visitiation of Berkshire). Are the two Elizabeths are the same person?

OBITUARY - FREDERICK CHARLES EAST. The death occurred yesterday of Mr Frederick Charles East, an old resident of Christchurch and very well known in connection with horticulture. Mr East, who was born in Oxford, England, seventy-one . years ago, came to New Zealand with his mother and brothers in the Glen tanner in 1857, and the family settled in Christchurch. In his early years Mr East was an enthusiastic member of the first Volunteer company formed in Canterbury, and always took a keen interest in the defence movement, being secretary of the Bluejumpers' Association, the body of old Volunteers which up to a few years ago held an annual celebration of tho first camp held at Hillsborough. When quite a young man ho entered the employ of the Lyttelton Times Company, and having shown considerable promise as an artist, was appointed a draughtsman. Later he held the position of factory manager. For many years 1 Mr East led a very active life, and in the dosing years of his association with the company was appointed head of the reading staff, a position which he relinquished a few years ago. In his youth Mr East was a fine horseman, and it is interesting to recall that in the early days of racing in Canterbury he won tho second Derby, run in 1863, on Azucona, the property of Mr H. P. Lance. Mr East was also a singer of some merit, and was for many years a member of St Luke’s choir. He was a photographer; and in the early days of tho science made many valuable pictures of scenes in Christchurch that have become historic. Mr East took some of the first photographs published in the Canterbury Times. But it was as an horticulturist that he was best known. Always a keen lover of flowers, he devoted many years to the study of botany, and the culture of blooms, and was year after year a consistent winner of prizes- His collections of ferns, palms and orchids were among tho finest belonging to amateurs in the Dominion. He took a great interest in the Horticultural Society and was for many years a most active member. He leaves a widow and a family of two. daughters and five sons, one of whom, is Mr F. H. East, tho well-known stationer. Two brothers, Mr A. E. P. East of Merivale, and the Rev H. E. East of Leithfield. survive him, the eldest brother, Mr F. W. East, of Prebbleton, having died a few months ago.

MRS ADLEY, OPAWA. There died at her residence, Cherwell, Opawa, yesterday, a lady who will be greatly missed by her large family circle had many acquaintances. Mrs Adley, formerly Mrs East, the lady in question, came' to this settlement in 1857 with her four sons, having left home a widow, in tho hope of offering them opportunities which were not easy to secure there. Arrived here in the ship Glentanner, Mrs East, by her industry and estimable qualities, was soon enabled to place her sons in good positions, including another one, Mr F. C. East, who had subsequently arrived here. She had secured the freehold of the property in Colombo street on which the Oxford Hotel now stands, where she resided, and having thus provided for her family, .she married Mr Adley, who built tho original hotel, which the worthy couple managed for several years with success, winning the respect of all with whom they came in contact. They subsequently let the hotel and went to reside on their property at Opawa, whore Mrs Adley has just died. During her residence there she was an indefatigable worker for the good of the neighbourhood, always assisting in any church work both in Opawa and in the parish of St Mary’s, Addington, of which her son, the Rev H. B. East, is incumbent. In both of these parishes she commanded great esteem, and will be greatly missed. Four sons by the former marriage survive her, viz., Mr F. W. East, of Prebbleton, Messrs F. C. and A. East, lithographers, who have been long and favourably known in the Lyttelton Times Office, and the Rev H. B. East, to all of whom she has been a true parent. She also leaves one sou by the second marriage. Though living to the advanced age of nearly seventy-three, Mrs Adley has kept her health and has been active to the last, and her death, though anticipated, was a sad blow to the family. She passed away peacefully. Her remains will be interred at four o’clock to-day in the Heathcote cemetery, and the Ven Archdeacon Cholmondeley and the Rev C. J. Merton will officiate, both being very old friends of tho family. Mr Adiey, who was a sou of the Rev Antill Adley, rector of Pembroke, North Wales, is to be greatly sympathised with in his bereavement, as the worthy couple have been devoted companions during the declining years of their lives.

2737 [Press 30 Dec 1935] OBITUARY

2738 [Press 7 Apr 1919] OBITUARY - THE REV. H. E. EAST. The Rev. Herbert Edward East, Vicar of Leithfield, whose death occurred on Saturday, had served longer in the Chfistchurch diocese than any other clergyman holding a living in the diocese. Born at Oxford, England, in March, 1849, he came to New Zoaland with his mother and brothers in the early sixties. He subsequently took up work as a compositor in the employ of the Lyttelton Times Company, at the same time reading for Holy Orders. Ho was ordained deacon by the late Bishop Harper in 1872, matriculated in 1873, and was ordained priest in 1875. In that year, having been for three years curate of Governor's Bay, he was appointed curate of Addington and Halswell, and held that living until Easter, 1892. During that period notable improvements were made in both parts of the parish, the churches being enlarged, and the building of a find lych gate at Halswell being a notable event. In 1892, just twenty-seven years ago, Mr East became vicar of Leithfield, the parish including Balcairn, Sefton, Ashley, Loburn, and North Loburn, and even extending to the White Rock and Mount _ Thomas stations, where monthly services were hold. The vicar's Sunday duty on certain days meant a drive of about thirty miles, during which three or four rivers had to be crossed. In recent years the distances were curtailed to some extent, but until illness compelled him to rest, a few weeks ago, he held regular services in five churches. Three of these were built while Mr East was in the parish, one taking the place of an older building, and two being built in townships where services had previously been held in schoolrooms. The vicar's keen interest in every part of his parish encouraged the people, with the result that the appointments and furnishings of the various churches were brought to a point of excellence rarely attained in country parishes. A broad churchman, Mr East was in thorough sympathy with the people among whom he .ministered, and the feeling expressed by many of them to-day is that they have lost a dear friend. Speaking a few weeks ago concerning Mr East's illness, one of his oldest parishioners said simply: His unselfish devotion as our minister won our respect, but we have learned to love him as our friend.

Perhaps the life of this country vicar may be epitomised by the quotation of a letter which a parishioner,with most kindly thought, wrote to him a few days before his death:— Dear Mr East, —Do please permit me to thank you very much indeed for the substantial benefits which I have long felt I have been deriving from my close contact with your most lovable personality. Your influence has left many impressions upon my character, and I am grateful to you for those impressions. They have reference largely to general outlook upon life and manners. You have set before me and all who know you a splendid example of cultured and noble manhood. You have also typified, in, perhaps, its most lovable shape, the broad, tolerant, and genial spirit of Anglicanism. I consider that my intercourse with you has been a unique advantage and benefit to my life.-.

Apart from his parish work, Mr East was always active in many ways. So far as the Church was concerned, he did good work for a number of years as editor of the Church News, in which he made great improvements. Undertaking the editorship at a time when the -Church News was a small publication. -with a circulation of a few hundred copies, he transformed its style and appearance, and made it really the magazine of the diocese. For the past twenty-three years he had been clerical secretary of the Christchurch Diocesan Synod, and for almost as long a period secretary of the Northern Archdeaconry Clerical Conference. He fulfilled the duties of these offices with the same zeal and devotion that marked all his work, and his interest in the life of the district in which he lived was equally keen. For the past ten years he had been chairman of the Kowai Cemetery Board, and. during the greater part of that period he also held office as chairman of the Leithfield School Committee. Throughout the war period, and until his death, he was president of the Leithfield Patriotic and Red Cross Association; indeed, it was seldom that any movement for the public good was undertaken in the district without his help.
