emancipation of the West Indian slaves and in Parliamentary and municipal
reforms. He was a member of the Anti Corn Law League ; was elected to
the civic chair of Bradford as soon as the borough w^as incorporated in 1847,
and also member of three successive parliaments.

For some time he resided in a large house on the site of the present
Bradford Infirmary, but an alteration worth recording took place. When
Robert Milligan, in the early part of his career, was toiling faint and weary
from Apperley to Eccleshill, he paused to rest his burden on a stile, and
looking back, saw " Acacia Cot " peeping from the midst of embowering
foliage ; and he thought if he ever became rich that was the place he would
like to own. He was now a successful merchant and one of the founders of
the Bradford Banking company. It happened that the Acacia estate was
placed as security and thrown on his hands. The directors waited on Mr.
Milligan and wanted him to buy it. "I cannot afford it," said he. "On
the contrary," said they, "you are the very man who can afford it." He
bought the estate and made that his residence the remainder of his life.

Robert Milligan m. Phoebe Briggs of Rawdon, in Leeds, but did not
have issue. He adopted Susan, the daughter of his eldest brother, who
was m. to Henry William Ripiey.

ROBERT MILLIGAN, ESQ.

BORN OCTOBER I O, 1786; DIED JULY I, 1862.



How rare to see so much of honour won

In health and strength, amidst a world of strife!
A rich example of a well-spent life,

With heaped-up honour when the race is won.

This good man dies, ripe with benevolence,

And leaves a name unstained by worldly cares,
A goodly heritage to all his heirs,

And still his passport on his journey hence.

Now that his labours here have reached their end,
How sadly vacant seems the place to be
He filled amongst us, while in him we see

The upright citizen, the people's friend.

Throughout the record of his life, which teems
With patriotic and with Christian deeds,
A lesson's vouchsafed, which sublimely pleads

To those whose virtues fade away in dreams.

Not for his wealth, which grew i)y prudent care,

And ])atient toil, and honest-hearted thrift,

Kut for his j^en'rous nature, eiowninj^ gift.
The grief for such a loss so many share.

This is our boast ; the worlil is hlest with those

Whose selfishness is buried in the shade

Of noble actions ; one such now is laid,
Alas, where friendship's term on earth must close.

Peace to his ashes! may we iiumbly treatl
The path he trod of rectitude and peace,
So that our names, when our life-task shall cease,

Shall rank among those of the honoured dead.

CHILDREN OF JOHN AND CHRISTIANA HARTLEY.

1. Mary Hartley Milligan-' (2), eldest daughter of John- (2), b. Dec. 30, iSio;
was m. about 1830 to George Parkinson, and d. Sept. 8, 1865. She was
the mother of seven children, five of whom are living, viz : /<;////, Gc-o>xc,
77iot)ias, Klloi, and Ann.

2. John Milligan' (3), eldest son of John- (2), b. Jan. iS, 1812; m. Mari-
anne Greenwood of Haworth, at Bingley parish church, about 1836. He
d. at Whinburn, Keigley, Yorkshire, March 6, 1876, aged 64. His wife d.
Dec. 17, 1878. After leaving home this John Milligan was apprenticed to
a surgeon in Bradford, but in a short time his character manifested it.self in
an incident which brought this connection to a close. He was required to
keep books on the Sabbath ; this he refu.sed to do, and leaving, he was
bound apprentice to Dr. Mitchell of Keighley. He at once joined in the
movement for the establishment of the Mechanics Institute. After his aj)-
prenticeship he studied in London University College and commenced

practice at Bingley ; but after a year he retvirned to Keighley, where he
spent his life.

In 1847 he called the public attention to the sanitary condition of the
town in a lecture entitled " Poverty as a source of disease and factory
labor and wool-combing in relation to health and mortality." This was
published.

In 1848 he became competitor for the Fothersgilliam gold medal with
his essay, " On the influence of civilization upon health and disease ;" and
was successful. This gold medal was presented to Dr. Milligan at a public
banquet of the Medical society of London of which he was an honourary
corresponding fellow. To use his own words : " It was a position to him
no less novel than difficult." Living in the obscurity of a distant provin-
cial town, he said : " I had scarcely dared to hope that success would crown
my literary attempt. In fact when I thought on the matter, rather than
being the subject of exhilarating prospects, I felt abashed at my own temer-
ity and would willingly have sacrificed something if my paper could have
been withdrawn from the impending contest."

He wrote another essay on '- Drunkeness," the prize being ;^ioo, but
did not have the good fortune to receive the money he had earned. He
also defended a charge of poisoning so ably that at the assizes the case col-
lapsed and the judge complimented him on his evidence.

Dr. Milligan continued to take an active part in all local matters, being
incapable of passive conduct. He was a decided and consistant Liberal in
politics. For thirty years a regular attendant at the Wesleyan chapel.
During his life he performed many difficult surgical operations with remark-
able success without chloroform, which was then unknown.

In 1857 he read a paper before the British Association at Dublin, on a
new mode of preserving vaccine lymph in glycerine, and on an instrument,
a simple contrivance, to prevent irritation to the skin.

In 1859 before the same association, at Leeds, he read another paper on
" The Pressure of the Atmosphere and its power to modify and determine
Hemorrhagic Diseases." He also contributed several important articles to
the " Lancet " and other periodicals ; and many letters on public questions
both to the London and provincial press. He also wrote a volume of poems,
some of which bear marks of genius. For many years he held the position
of medical officer to the local board, and his reports were highly valued by
the local government board.

Added to his love of the medical profession, and his zeal in prosecuting
it, he was warmly attached to the study of literature and antiquities, and
on these subjects his mind was almost encyclopaediac. He almost lived in
the hearts and habits of the common people, and the collection of folk-lore
was his second nature. Even in the last week of his life, he had rescued
from oblivion the old market cross of Keighley, and erected it in his own
grounds at Whinburn. He amassed a varied library of over 4,000 volumes,
many of the books of great value, and the most of these now form a library
in the Technical Institute in Keighley, called the " Milligan Collection."
He also collected a valuable assortment of fossils, and since his death these
were presented to the town museum, with some quaint oil paintings.

In personal appearance Dr Milligan was of tall, slim, handsome figure,
about 6 feet in height. He was a great pedestrian and knew every lane in

As ( uiulifi laiiil ami WCsimott'Iaiul lountic.^ om r loiim-il a p.ut ol the
Kingdom of Scotland, thcMillicans in those shires evidently came from
the same source as those in Scotland and Ireland. 'I'he union of the crowns
of England and Scotland and the ("oventer's wars and the Cromwellian
soldiers may have introduced some of the Millicans into ( 'uml»crland and
Northumberland. The early records of Newcastle disclose the fact that the
earlier generations of the Millicans were of the lowest rank, which seems to
indicate that the better class had not even come to C"und)erland at that
period. At any rate they were intermarried with the gentle families as the
following pedigree will show, by the end of the iSth century. The sur-
name in England is pronounced as if spelled J//7//X'';/, and there remains no
doubt of the common origin of the many brain hes who u.se dilTerenl forms
of orthography.

The Millicans in the North of England, back to the time of John Mil-
lican, at least, were in the service of the London Lead company's mines in
Weardale, (Stanhope >S: Ronaldkirk) in Dufton, and in Alston Moor, cen-
tering at Nenthead, and in three generations the members were always
promoted to the highest rank as superintendent. The Millicans seem to have
sprung, latterly, from Garrigill, where they still hold land — Gate Head Earm.

Mr. John Millican Senior, and after him his son Tinniswood, held West
Nenthead House and land, as also Bailes estate and other lands about
Alston. Mrs. Dalton, 7iee Millican, now holds West Nenthead. liailes has
been sold by the executors of John Joseph Millican.

John William Junior held lands at the town head of Alston and else-
where, and upon his decease some of these passed to his daughters, his son
being dead. The other branch of Millicans,-of Alston, -now represented
by John Holmes Millican, still hold land ; but these are chieHy engaged
in business, one being a successful Newcastle merchant.

NoiK. — Many families of Millicans from the North of I'.ngland came early to North
America, and their descendents are now very numerous in the llritish Provinces and
Southern United States.

The following pedigree, nicely tabulated, was compiled by the Rev.
William Dalton, whose mother was Sarah, daughter of 'I'inniswood Millican,
and is the fruit of careful and painstaking research carried forward e.xpressiy
for this book. He made full extracts from the Herald visitations in the
British museum.
