The death of Sir Hardman EARLE

The death of Sir Hardman EARLE took place at his residence, Allerton Tower, Woolton, on Thursday morning at 10 am, he had been in delicate health for some time.

He was the second son of Thomas EARLE of Spekelands, one of the finest old squires of the county and one of the leading citizens of our town in the last century.

Sir Hardman, was born on July 11th, 1792, and was brought up in the mercantile house of Messers MORELL and BORELAND, merchants then of high standing, but who have long since disappeared from the busy circles of commerce. After serving his apprenticeship there he entered the firm of

brokers and afterwards, styled, SALISBURY, TURNER and EARLE, for a long time being the acting and managing partner, retiring in 1850.

He has, however, always been a partner in the old established firm of seed crushers, EARLE and CARTER, now, EARLE and KING, lately he and his son built the new building of the firm in Burlington St. He was one of the original promoters of the Liverpool and Manchester

Railway, projected by his friend the late Joseph SANDERS and his relative the late Charles LAWRENCE, 1st Chairman. Sir Hardman joined the board in 1828, and was present at the opening when Mr HUSKISSON was killed.

He was also one of the original promoters and directors of the Grand Junction Railway, when that joined the Manchester and Liverpool and further amalgamated with the London and Birmingham, as the London and North

Western Railway, he was elected to sit on the board which he has held to this day. He was therefore the oldest Railway Director living.

He was also county and borough magistrate and declined the office of high sheriff in 1869, his friend and relative, the late Mr B. HEYWOOD JONES serving in his stead.

Sir Hardman was created a Baronet in 1869, and was the

oldest trustee of the Bluecoat Hospital.

He leaves three sons and five daughters and is succeeded in the family honours by his eldest son Thomas who married Miss FLETCHER daughter of W. FLETCHER Esq, late of the Bank of England, Liverpool, by whom he has a large, young family.

The flag at the Town Hall is hoisted at half mast.
