Title

Obituary of Henrietta Ryle

Description

The transcription of a news report in the Cheshire Observer (Chester, England), Saturday, April 13, 1889; pg. 3; Issue 1914. 19th Century British Library Newspapers: Part II.

“Death of Mrs Ryle – It is with sincere regret that we have to announce the death of Mrs Henrietta Amelia Ryle, wife of the Bishop of Liverpool. She was a daughter of the late Lieut.-Colonel W. L Clowes (3rd King’s Own Dragoons), of Broughton Old Hall, Manchester. The sad event took place at half-past eight o’clock on Saturday night at Harrogate, where the deceased lady had gone only recently for the benefit of her health. Mrs Ryle had been subject to frequent attacks of illness since the opening of the Exhibition in May, 1886. It will be still fresh in the memory of most people that, when her Majesty the Queen visited Liverpool on that auspicious occasion the weather was most inclement; not only did the rain pour down in torrents, but there was also a searching, biting, wind, which could not fail to affect the health and conduce to discomfort. Mrs Ryle caught a chill at that time, which afterwards led to serious results. During last week it became evident that the end was fast approaching. Dr Alexander, the family physician, visited the sick room on Thursday week, but his skill was fruitless. On Friday the members of the family were sent for, when Professor Ryle, his wife, and Miss Ryle went from Liverpool and the other members reached Harrogate from their respective residences. On Saturday night, at eight o’clock, a telegram was received from Harrogate to the following effect:- “Mrs Ryle sinking fast; no hope.” Half an hour afterwards she passed away.”
