15 June 1894: Castle Yacht Club: This club had fine weather, with a hard south-westerly breeze, for their matches in the Solent classes on Monday. There was a large attendance of the members of the club and friends at the club-house to witness them. Luna proved that she is a good hard-weather boat, and she fairly beat all in her class, while Inyoni again showed signs of tenderness, as did Asphodel, in which her owner sailed. The 20-raters were much better represented than the other classes, but the sport was poor. Match for yachts over 18 and not over 20-rating. The entries were: – Deirdré, 20, Earl of Lonsdale; Asphodel, 20, Prince Henry of Battenberg; Luna, 20, Nr. L. B. Jameson; Dragon, 20, Earl of Dunraven; Inyoni, 20, Earl of Dudley; Thelma, 20, Mr A. B. Walker. These six started with housed topmasts and reefed mainsails. They had a run to the first mark, which they rounded in close order, Inyoni leading, with Luna next, then Asphodel, Thelma, Deirdré and Dragon. Leaving the mark it was a beat to windward, and in the second tack Thelma had to give up, owing to carrying away her bobstay plate. After Cowes harbour had been past it was a reach, and then Luna went with the lead, and Asphodel was left last. In the run from the western mark, Asphodel headed Deirdré in the broad reach, but before they had hauled round the Calshot Spit lightship Prince Henry’s boat was again last. In the second round the wind was somewhat lessened, and all sported gaff topsails save Asphodel and Inyoni, which sailed without them. Dragon gave up in the beat to Lepe, and went into Cowes Roads. The others completed the race as follows:- Luna, winner, 3h 24m 4s; Inyoni, second prize, 3h 29m 18s; Deirdré, 3h 31m 5s; Asphodel, 3h 32m 18s. In the 5-rating race the starters were:- Pente, Lieut.-Col. Bucknill; Fleur-de-Lis, Mr S. H. Montgomery; Red Lancer, Captain John Orr-Ewing. The times at the finish were:- Fleur-de-Lis, winner, 3h 19m 5s; Pente, second prize, 3h 25m 38s. Meneen, Mr A. Hardie Jackson; Mystery, Hon. H. L. Mulholland, M.P.; and Kismet, Miss Cox, were the starters in the 2½-rating class, and they finished as follows, Mystery and Kismet making a close race towards the end of the match:- Meneen (winner), 3h 12m 44s; Kismet (second prize), 3h 14m 59s; Mystery, 3h 15m 2s. Meneen was steered by Captain St John Hughes (South Wales Borderers), who has only just returned from Egypt. Fay, Mr T. M. Lord, sailed over in the 1-rating class. There were only two starters in the ½-rating class, viz Coquette, Lieutenants Vandeleur and Churchill; and Spruce, Mr J. A. Brand. The latter gave up, and Coquette finished alone. Among the company at the clubhouse were Count Metternich, Hon. Constance Waldegrave, Countess of Scarborough, Marchioness of Zetland, Lady Maud Dundas, Major the Hon. C. Colville, Colonel Dugmore, Captain G. Spencer Smith, Captain Haynes, R.E., Major Parry, Captain Cecil Drummond, Hon. W. Ruthven, Captain J. Orr-Ewing, Miss Hughes, Mr and Mrs Lord, &c.
29 January 1904: The Management of the Upper Thames. ‘A public inquiry under the Thames Conservancy Act of 1894 was held on Monday afternoon at the offices of the Thames Conservancy, Victoria Embankment, before Sir F. Dixon-Hartland, M.P., (chairman of the Board), Sir Reginald Hanson (chairman of the Upper River Committee), and Mr W. B. Monck (chairman of the River Purification Committee) into complaints made by Mr W. G. Stoneham, of Windsor, in regard to the regulation of the weirs in the upper river. There were present at the inquiry Mr R. Philipson (secretary), Mr J. Hughes (solicitor) and Mr C. J. More (engineer to the Conservancy). On the arrival of three gentlemen appointed to hear the complaints, the Chairman announced that Mr C. Burt being unwell, the Board had appointed Alderman Monck, an up-river Conservator, to assist at the inquiry.’ ‘Mr Stoneham, in opening his case, said: … “Some years since Mr Grenfell, on the suggestion of the Floods Prevention Committee, moved that a commission be appointed to inquire into the dredging in the neighbourhood of Windsor …” … Mr F. Husted, of Windsor, having given evidence that four gates were out of the river at Windsor and nine gates in on the date mentioned. … Mr T. Neighbour, of Shiplake, stated that many residents on the upper river disagreed altogether from the contentions of the complainant. There had never been a time during the last twenty-five years when the river was so well under control as now. Mr Christopher Sainty, managing engineer to the Windsor Corporation Waterworks, considered that the complaints of Mr Stoneham were preposterous. During the present month for nineteen days the water at Windsor had been below headwater mark. This ridiculous nonsense about keeping the level low costs his Corporation £200 a year.’

April 1925: Heaton Mersey School: It is with sincere regret that we record the death during the past month of one of our oldest scholars, Mr George Hughes. For many years he was one of the school’s most stalwart supporters. His many appearances at school concerts and operettas will be remembered by most of the grown-up scholars, for George was always ready to assist at any concert or anything in connection with the school. Years back he was prominent in the School Cricket Club, along with the late Mr Frank Cash. We pray that He above will give strength and blessing to those who mourn the loss of a dear husband and father.
