[Doris Eleanor Mallinson: Tree 12, born 5 April 1889, Lockwood, daughter of John William Mallinson & Emily Dyson]




            This morning, at Rehoboth Baptist Chapel, Lockwood, Miss Doris Eleanor Mallinson, only daughter of Councillor J.W. Mallinson, Meadow Croft, Beaumont Park, and Mr. Arthur Ivy White, The Chestnuts, Coalville, near Leicester, were married by the Rev. P. Reynolds, of London, until recently the pastor of the church. The wedding was of a pretty character, and attracted a large congregation.

            Miss Mallinson was given away by her father. The bridesmaids were Miss Mildred C. White, sister of the bridegroom, and Miss H. Gladys Hatton, of Atherstone, Warwickshire. Mr. Walter H. White, brother of the bridegroom, acted as best man, and Captain Reginald H. Foster, B.S. Division, of Leicester, was groomsman.

            The bride’s dress was of ivory duchesse mousseline, with over dress of ninon and yoke of Point d’Alencon lace, with trimming of pearl embroidery, caught with sprays of orange blossom. Her veil was of Brussels net, lent by the bridegroom’s mother, and her wreath was of real orange blossom. She carried a shower bouquet of white roses and white heather, and wore a pair of gold earrings set with turquoises and pearls, both the gifts of the bridegroom. The bride’s present to the bridegroom was a gold ring.

            The bridesmaids wore cahrming gowns in long tunic style of ivory tinted silk marquesette, having deep bands on the skirts embroidered with floss silk, and folded bodices trimmed to match, finished on one side with a cluster of shaded silk roses, and the vest and upper sleeves of silk net and handsome gold embroidery. Their hats were drooping shapes with dome crowns made of ivory satin straw, with wreaths of prettily shaded pink roses and foliage. They carried bouquets of pale pink sweet peas and wore gold bracelets, all given to them by the bridegroom.

            The bride’s mother wore a dress of shot satin charmeuse, with trimmings of applique and gold shaded beads. The mother of the bridegroom wore a heliotrope poplin-de-chine dress, in Princess style, handsomely embroidered on the panels of the skirt and sleeves in self colour, the bodice artistically trimmed with gold and oriental guipure. A dainty little vest of net and Irish lace completed the costume. Mrs. Mallinson and Mrs. White carried respectively bouquets of pink and mauve sweet peas, presented to them by the bridegroom.

            Mr. W.H. Goldthorpe, of Heckmondwike, was the organist. He played the Bridal Chorus from “Lohengrin” as the register was being signed, and Mendelssohn’s Wedding March as the happy couple left the chapel.

            A reception was held at Meadow Croft, and later in the day the newly-married couple left for Grange-over-Sands, where the honeymoon will be spent.

            The bride travelled in a tailor-made costume of white serge, and a Tussore silk hat, trimmed with forget-me-nots and pink roses. There were many beautiful and costly presents.

            Mr. and Mrs. White will reside at The Limes, Long Bennington, near Grantham.

[Ruth Mallinson, née Hollingworth, Tree 16, wife of John Mallinson.]




            Mr. E.H. Hill, the district coroner, held an inquest at the Huddersfield Infirmary this (Monday) afternoon on the body of Ruth Mallinson, aged 40, the wife of John Mallinson, power loom tuner, Red Row, Lidgate, Newmill, who died at the Infirmary on Saturday morning. The deceased was found on the floor of her home on Monday last with her throat cut and with a razor by her side.

            The husband of the deceased said his wife had had good health until about five weeks ago. Since that time she had been attended by a doctor for liver trouble. The witness had never noticed that his wife had been troubled in her mind. She had not seemed depressed; but she had not slept well recently. She had a brother in an asylum. On Monday the witness took the clothes to the laundry, at his wife’s request, and when he returned he found her as stated above. He was absent about a quarter of an hour. His wife was in her night attire. The razor was usually kept in a table drawer downstairs. Dr. Williams, of Holmfirth, attended his wife, who was afterwards removed to the Infirmary.

            Dr. Campbell, senior house surgeon at the Infirmary, stated that the throat of the deceased was cut from ear to ear. This was probably a self-inflicted one. The deceased had made no statement as to why or how she had been injured.

            A verdict of “Suicide whilst temporarily insane” was returned.

[Arthur Mallinson, Tree 1, son of Samuel Mallinson & Sarah Roberts]


HUDDERSFIELD COUNTY COURT. Tuesday. Before his Honour Judge Longstaff.




            Arthur Mallinson, of 96, Back Whitehead Lane, Primrose Hill, teamer, applied to have an agreement registered whereby his employers, Messrs. A. and S. Dransfield, of Hillhouse, carriers, agreed to pay him half wages during incapacity arising out of an injury received whilst following his employment.

            Mr. A.E. T. Hinchcliffe (Messrs. Armitage, Sykes, and Hinchcliffe) appeared on behalf of Mallinson, and Mr. R.C. Davies, from the office of Mr. Arthur Willey, Leeds, appeared for Messrs. Dransfield.

            Mr. Hinchcliffe, in opening the case, stated that on the 9th May last, whilst Mallinson was delivering a load of coal at the gas house yard, his horse fell, and whilst assisting to get it up Mallinson was thrown violently against a pillar, whereby his arm was injured and his back was seriously hurt. He went to the Infirmary, where he was treated as an out-patient for several weeks. At the request of the respondents he resumed work soon after Honley Feast, but was unable to harness or unharness the horse, or load the waggon, or do any other work of a laborious nature. Assistance was rendered him by his employers, and he continued doing what he could until the 23rd December, when he had to cease working altogether owing to his position gradually becoming worse and the pains in the back and other parts of the body increasing. The employers declined to resume the weekly compensation, alleging that the applicant had recovered from the accident and was fit to work.

            Mr. Hinchcliffe stated that the applicant was examined soon afterwards by Dr. Demetriadi, who found that he was undoubtedly suffering from the effects of the accident, and was certified as unfit for work. He was subsequently examined by two other medical men, who confirmed Dr. Demetriadi’s opinion. The respondents had filed an answer to the application that the agreement ceased when Mallinson resumed work, but Mr. Hinchcliffe contended that under the Act it was for his Honour to say whether on the evidence Mallinson’s incapacity had ceased or not. If it had not, then the agreement should be recorded, and it would be open for the respondents to subsequently apply for same to be terminated or varied.

            Arthur Mallinson gave evidence confirming his counsel’s opening statements, and explained the nature of his injuries and the complaints he had made from time to time to his employer.

            Cross-examined by Mr. Davies, applicant stated that one of the Dransfields used objectionable language to him on several occasions when he resumed work in September, and had stated he was fit to do the work, but he had informed him that he was not and told him how he felt.

            Dr. Demetriadi stated that he had carefully examined the applicant and applied all well known and recognised tests, and was satisfied that Mallinson was suffering from the effects of the accident. He had all the symptoms of concussion of the spine. There was also a chronic inflammatory thickening of the wrist which prevented the free use of the right arm. In his opinion the applicant could not in his present condition do the work he had been accustomed to, and it would be unwise and inadvisable for him to attempt it.

            Drs. Copeland and Raffard also gave evidence confirming Dr. Demetriadi’s conclusions.

            Mr. Davies, for the respondents, submitted that the applicant had thoroughly recovered from the effects of the accident when he resumed work in September last.

            Dr. MacGregor stated that he had examined the applicant on behalf of the respondents, and was of the opinion that the man had recovered from the effects of the accident and was able to work. He stated that when he first examined Mallinson he made no complaint of any pains in the various parts of the body as described by the other medical men, and that most of the symptoms described were subjective.

            In cross-examination he admitted that several of the symptoms referred to were objective.

            At this stage the Court adjourned, and the hearing was suspended until Thursday.



Friday 17 May                        page 3  column 6




            A case had come before his Honour on Tuesday in which Arthur Mallinson, teamer, 96, Back Whitehead Lane, Primrose Hill, applied to have an agreement registered, whereby his employers, Messrs. A. and S. Dransfield, carriers, Hillhouse, agreed to pay him 10s. a week during incapacity arising out of an injury received while following his employment. Mr. A.E.T. Hinchcliffe (Messrs. Armitage, Sykes, and Hinchcliffe) appeared for the applicant, and Mr. R.C. Davies (from the office of Mr. Arthur Willey, Leeds) for the respondents.

            The evidence of the applicant had been to the effect that whilst delivering a load of coal at the Gas House, Huddersfield, on May 9th, 1911, his horse fell, and whilst assisting to get it up he was thrown violently against a pillar, and was seriously injured in the back and arm. For several weeks he was an out-patient at the Infirmary. At the request of the respondents, he resumed work soon after Honley Feast, but was unable to harness or uharness the horse or do laborious work. On December 23rd he was obliged to cease work, as he had become worse, and his compensation was stopped.

            Dr. Demetriadi had stated that the applicant had all the sympoms of concussion of the spine, and that it would be unwise and undesirable for him to attempt to do his customary work.

            Drs. Copeland and Rafford gave similar evidence.

            On behalf of the respondents, Dr. MacGregor had stated that the applicant had recovered from the effects of the accident. When first examined Mallinson made no complaint of the pains described by the other medical men.

            When the hearing was resumed to-day (Thursday), Arthur Dransfield, of the respondent firm, stated that the applicant was the worst workman he had ever known. He was irregular.

            He admitted, in cross-examination, that he had only had one day prior to the accident in which to judge applicant, who only entered his employ on May 8th, 1911. The applicant could not do his work, but did not resent being advised or helped.

            Christopher Beaumont, weighman at the gasworks, and John Vickerman, teamer, Primrose Hill, also gave evidence. The former told of the applicant having tipped the waggon without assistance. If anyone were near he would ask for help, but he had never seen Mallinson waiting for someone to come and help him.

            Vickerman said the applicant had only complained of his wrist.

            It was agreed that the case should stand over, to be restored to the list by the applicant within fourteen days after receipt by his solicitor of notice from respondents signifying whether they consented to the hearing being treated as an application for compensation, all costs to be reserved.



Thursday 18 July 1912            page 4 column 6




            Arthur Mallinson, teamer, 96, Back Whitehead Lane, Primrose Hill, applied for compensation against Messrs. A. and S. Dransfield, carriers, Hillhouse. I raising his horse, which had fallen at the entrance to the Huddersfield Gas Works, he was knocked against one of the pillars of the gate, and sustained an injured back and concussion of the spine. Mr. A.E.T. Hinchcliffe (Messrs. Armitage, Sykes, and Hinchcliffe) appeared for the applicant, and Mr Davies (from the office of Mr. Arthur Willey, Leeds) represented the defendants.

            The case had previously been heard three times. It was brought before the Court on an application to register a memorandum of an agreement to pay compensation, but the Court refused to register it, and Mr. Hinchcliffe contended that the parties were then in their former position, and the applicant was in a position to commence proceedings.

            Mr. Hinchcliffe said that the applicant was engaged at a wage of 23s. a week, but he had worked only one or two days when the accident occurred. Compensation was paid until September 29th, when Mallinson went back to work, and received assistance but he had had days when he felt worse, and on December 23rd he had to give up. The compensation paid up to resuming work was 10s. a week and not 11s. 6d., which was what he ought to have had.

            Drs. Raffard, Copeland, and Demetriadi agreed that since June 17th, when the case was last heard, there had been an improvement in applicant’s condition, and Dr. MacGregor repeated his evidence for the respondents.

            After a long legal argument his Honour made an award for 11s. 6d., from December 23rd, date of last payment, up to the present date, and suggested that a small sum should be accepted in satisfaction temporarily until an appeal if there were one heard.

[Edward Mallinson: Tree 4, born 1850, Thick Hollins, Meltham, son of John Mallinson and Emma Crosland]




            The death has occurred of Mr. Edward Mallinson, a native of Meltham, at his residence, Woodleigh, Bradford-on-Avon. The deceased was a son of Mr. John Mallinson, and was born at Thickhollins Hall, Meltham, in 1850. He was educated at St. Peter’s School, York, and was for two years on H.M.S. Conway. He wasa partner in the firm of George Crosland and Sons, cloth manufacturers, of Huddersfield, but retired in 1887. He was at one time a member of the Huddersfield Chamber of Commerce, and later was for ten years a member of the Bradford-on-Avon Urban District Council.

He had travelled extensively, and had visited Australia, India, Egypt, and other places.

            Mr. Mallinson was added to the Commission of the Peace for the county of Wiltshire in 1894, and sat regularly on the Bradford Bench. His last appearance there was at the monthly Petty Sessions on October 29th.

[Victor Mallinson: Tree 12, born 24 May 1891, Lockwood, son of William Mallinson and Grace Burley]


            Private Victor Mallinson, of the Northumberland Fusiliers, and of 41, Handel Street, Golcar, writes to his father at Linthwaite as follows:

            “I can just imagine the old valley now, and hear the old voices, and the noise of the traffic. It would feel grand to read the old books, and argue the old politics… Some of the chaps are just singing “Jesu, lover of my soul,” at a church meeting a few yards away, an aeroplane is supplying the tune up above, and shells are bursting just in front… I don’t know how it is, but I can pray better and feel God better when I am alone than at any church meeting. The shells are still bursting, the birds are still singing, the sun is still shining, and hell is still where we, with our civilisation, have made it - still on earth. I wonder how long we shall walk in darkness, and how long we shall remain ignorant and selfish, and if we shall ever learn the true story of Christianity and the Sermon on the Mount.”

            Mr. and Mrs. Walter Mallinson, of 90, Willow Lane, Birkby, have received information that two of their three sons who are serving in the Army have been wounded. The more serious of the two cases is that of Private H. Mallinson, who was struck by a shell whilst removing wounded men from the lines which the British forces had captured. He enlisted in the 1st Devons three years ago. He suffered from frost bite during the first winter of the war, and was wounded on Hill 60. He recovered from his wounds, and returned to France last October, since when he has acted as a stretcher bearer in the R.A.M.C.

The other son of Mr. and Mrs. Mallinson who has been wounded is Pte. Lewis Mallinson, of the West Yorkshire. His injuries are slight. A third son, Pte. Arthur Mallinson, was wounded last year.

It was the first of our Lewis guns to get into position and come into action.

            He was previously employed by Mr. John Firth, grocer, Milnsbridge, and he is a member of the Crosland Moor United Methodist Church. He is, we believe, the first Crosland Moor soldier who has gained the Military Medal. He was decorated with the ribbon on July 5th.
