About Jacob Æmilius Irving

"Jacob Aemilius Irving remembered seeing his father but once--John Beaufin, his brother, and himself had been sent from Jamaica to England to school and were placed at Kensington. Their father had arrived in London, their mother having died at sea--he was unwell, he tied up his head (as they do in Jamaica), went into his chamber saying he would never leave that room alive, and died within a month.

"When he was ill and really dying the two boys were brought from school, and Jacob (then in his eighth year) remembered a very tall man in bed taking him up in his arms and kissing him.

"The boys returned to school and were soon summoned to the funeral which was from a "house in a street leading out of the Strand to the River," to the place of interment--the Churchyard St. Martin's in the Fields."
