A much older pupil of his, the Rev. Godfrey Thring, 1 is
well known for his beautiful hymns and sacred lyrics.

Of the brilliant band of Shrewsbury scholars who graduated
at Oxford and Cambridge between 1842 and 1852 several
occupy a distinguished position in the annals of literature.
Mr. Hugh A. J. Munro's 2 edition of Lucretius has been
described as the most valuable contribution to Latin scholar-
ship by any Englishman during the present century.
Certainly it enjoys a European reputation. Much the same
may be said of the great edition of Juvenal, published by
Mr. J. E. B. Mayor, 3 who became Professor of Latin when
Mr. Munro resigned in 1872, and who is almost as widely
known for his profound antiquarian researches as for his
brilliant classical scholarship.

William George Clark, 4 who went up to Trinity College,
Cambridge, two years after Munro, although he was not, like

1 Godfrey Thring, son of the Rev. John Gale Dalton Thring, of Alford, Castle-
Cary, Somerset. B.A. of Balliol College, Oxford, 1845; ordained, 1846; curate
of Stratfield Turgis, 1845-1850; curate of Strathfieldsaye, 1850-1853; curate of
Euston, Norfolk, 1856 ; curate of Arberfield, Berks, 1857 ; Rector of Alford
with Hornblotton, Somerset, 1858-1892 ; Rural Dean of Castle-Cary, 1867-
1876.

2 Hugh Andrew Johnstons Munro. At Shrewsbury School, 1833-1838; head
boy, 1838; Craven scholar, 1841; second Classic and Senior Chancellor's
Medallist, 1842; fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, 1843; Examiner for
the Classical Tripos, 1851; Professor of Latin, 1869. Mr. Munro's election
to the professorship was commemorated by Richard Shilleto in one of his happy
couplets :

Esto professor carus editor Cari,

Carus Sabrinse, carior suse Grantae.

The first edition of Mr. Munro's Lucretius was published in 1860. He died at
Rome, March 3Oth, 1885.

3 Professor John Eyton Bicker steth Mayor is an Hon. LL.D. of Aberdeen and
an Hon. D.C.L. of Oxford. He was at Shrewsbury School from 1838 to 1844,
and head boy, 1843-44; third Classic, 1848; fellow of St. John's College,
Cambridge, 1849; Public Librarian, 1864-1867; editor of BAKER'S History
of St. John's College, the college register of admissions, and other valuable
antiquarian works. Professor Mayor has from the first taken a warm interest in
the " Old Catholic " movement.

4 William George Clark. Born March 2ist, 1821. At Shrewsbury School,
1838-1840; head boy, 1840. Mr. Clark wrote charming accounts of his tours
in Spain and Greece in 1849 and 1856, the former under the title of Gazpacho,
and the latter under that of The Peloponnesus. He died at York, November 6th,
1878.



340 SHREWSBURY SCHOOL

his school-fellow, successful in gaining a university scholar-
ship, showed his poetic taste and his skill in composition
by carrying off the Porson Prize and three Browne Medals.
In 1844 he was placed second in the first class of the
Classical Tripos and was Junior Chancellor's Medallist,
and in the same year he was elected fellow of his college.
Henceforth, except during the vacations, Mr. Clark resided
in Cambridge almost continuously until 1873. He filled
the office of college tutor and subsequently that of vice-
master, and from 1857 to 1869 he was public orator of the
university. In 1852 he examined for the Classical Tripos.
Much of his time was devoted to literary pursuits. In 1850,
in conjunction with Dr. Kennedy and the Rev. James Riddell,
Mr. Clark edited the Sabrincs Corolla. He also edited the
Cambridge Essays in 185 5, and helped to establish the Journal
of Philology. But his chief literary work was The Cambridge
Shakespeare, in the editing of which he had the assistance,
first, of the Rev. John Glover, and afterwards of Mr. W.
Aldis Wright. 1 Few who knew William George Clark can
readily forget his genial wit, his brilliant conversation, his
refined taste, and his kindliness of heart. His proposed
edition of Aristophanes, on which he laboured for many
years, might perhaps have earned him a reputation equal
to that enjoyed by his school-fellows, Munro and Mayor,
had his health during the latter part of his life allowed him
to complete it. Edward Meredith Cope 2 was a praepostor
when Dr. Butler left Shrewsbury in 1836, and had some



1 It is only right to mention that, from the time Mr. Aldis Wright's co-
operation in The Cambridge Shakespeare commenced, the chief part of the work
was due to his labours.

2 Edward Meredith Cope, son of Charles Cope, Esq. , of Birmingham. Born
July 28th, 1818. His school education began at Ludlow, but he removed to
Shrewsbury in 1832, and remained there for five years. Head boy in 1837 ;
B.A., 1841; M.A., 1844; fellow, 1845; ordained, 1848. In 1867 he was
a candidate for the Greek professorship to which the Council of the Senate
elects, and received the same number of votes as Dr. Kennedy. Subsequently,
the Vice-Chancellor and the Master of Trinity differing in opinion, the choice
rested with the Duke of Devonshire, as Chancellor of the university, who
selected Dr. Kennedy. Mr. Cope's health broke down two years later, and
he died in 1873. (Diet, of Nat. Biog.)



BENJAMIN HALL KENNEDY 341

fifteen months of Dr. Kennedy's teaching before he went
up to Trinity College, Cambridge, in 1837. He gained
the Porson Prize in 1839, and in 1841 he was Senior
Classic. Like Munro and Clark he resided most of his
life at Cambridge, and took his share in the college tuition.
In 1850, 1851, and 1853 he was an examiner for the Classical
Tripos. The chief literary work with which Mr. Cope's name
is associated is an edition of the Rhetoric of Aristotle, which
was published posthumously in 1877 under the editorship of
Mr. J. E. Sandys, fellow and tutor of St. John's College, and
public orator.

Another brilliant Salopian of those days was James
Riddell, 1 for many years fellow and tutor of Balliol
College, Oxford, a man whose fine scholarship was widely
recognized, and who has already been mentioned as one
of the editors of Sabrincz Corolla. Nor must we omit to
include among the modern Salopians who have attained
high literary distinction the name of Robert Burn, 2 the
gifted author of Rome and the Campagna, another fellow
and tutor of Trinity College, Cambridge, who shared with
Lord Macnaghten and the late James Lempriere Hammond
the first place in the Classical Tripos of 1852.

Many other Shrewsbury pupils of Dr. Kennedy, after
taking high honours at Oxford or Cambridge, have done,
or are still doing, useful work for their university. Edwin

1 James Riddell, son of the Rev. James Riddell, Rector of Easton, Hants. At
Shrewsbury School from 1838 to 1841; elected scholar of Balliol in November,
1840, but did not go into residence at Oxford till October, 1841 ; head boy
when he left school ; placed in ist class lit. hum. and 3rd class mathematics
in 1845 5 elected fellow of Balliol, 1845 ; ordained, 1852 ; Classical Examiner,
1865-66; Classical Moderator, 1865-66; Proctor and Select Preacher in 1862.
Died at Tunbridge Wells, September I4th, 1866, aged forty-three. Dr. Kennedy
regarded James Riddell as one of the best scholars, if not the best, that he
ever sent out.

2 Robert Burn. At Shrewsbury School, 1842-1848; 2nd class in Natural
Science, 1853 ; Examiner for Classical Tripos, 1862 and 1883 ; Praelector of
Roman History and Archaeology at Trinity College, 1873; Hon. LL.D. of
Glasgow University, 1883. Besides his Rome and the Campagna Mr. Burn has
published useful raised maps of Rome and Athens and a guide to the ruins
at Rome, under the title Old Rome.



342 SHREWSBURY SCHOOL

Charles Clark, 1 Senior Classic and Senior Chancellor's Medal-
list in 1858, has been for many years Regius Professor of Civil
Law at Cambridge, and has also served on several occasions
as one of the examiners in the Classical and Law Triposes.
Arthur Holmes, 2 whose undergraduate career at Cambridge
was hardly less brilliant than that of Kennedy himself, was for
many years classical lecturer at St. John's and Clare Colleges,
and examined four times for the Classical Tripos. Henry Mel-
ville Gwatkin, 3 who is now Dixie Professor of Ecclesiastical
History at Cambridge, enjoys the unprecedented honour of
having gained a first class in no less than four different
Triposes. William Francis Smith, 4 late fellow and tutor of
St. John's College, Cambridge, acted for many years as a
lecturer for his college. Henry Arthur Morgan, 5 master of
Jesus College, Cambridge, did much by his ability and energy
as tutor to raise the position of his college in the university.
He has also served on the Council of the Senate, and has
been Select Preacher at the University Church. Charles
Edward Graves, 6 who shared the Porson Prize in 1861 with the
present Head Master of Shrewsbury School, and was second

1 Edwin Charles Clark. Browne Medallist, 1856 ; B.A., 1858; M.A., 1861 ;
LL.M., 1871 ; Examiner for the Classical Tripos in 1866, 1867, 1871, and 1872 ;
formerly fellow of Trinity College, but now of St. John's ; member of the
Governing Body of Shrewsbury School.

2 Arthur Holmes. At Shrewsbury School for nearly ten years, and a praepostor
for more than a third of the time ; head boy, 1853-1855. In his freshman's year
at St. John's College, Cambridge, he was elected first Bell scholar and Craven
university scholar, and before taking his degree he gained the Porson Prize three
times and one of the Browne Medals twice, besides carrying off the Chancellor's
Medal for an English poem. In 1858 he graduated as second Classic.

3 Henry Melville Gwatkin. B.A., 1867 ; M.A., 1870. Professor Gwatkin
graduated at St. John's and was elected a fellow of his college, but is now a
fellow of Emmanuel. The four Triposes in which he gained a first class were the
Mathematical, Classical, Theological, and Moral Sciences.

4 William Francis Smith was second Classic in 1866. He edited Rabelais
a few years ago "carefully and efficiently."

5 Henry Arthur Morgan. B.A. (twenty-sixth Wrangler), 1853; M.A., 1856;
D.D., 1886; Sadlerian Lecturer at Jesus College, 1853-1863; Mathematical
Lecturer, 1858-1885; fellow, 1858-1885 ; tutor, 1863-1885; member of the
Council of the Senate, 1868-1872 ; Select Preacher for the University, 1886 and

6 Charles Edward Craves. Head boy, 1857-1858 ; Examiner for the Classical
Tripos in 1870, 1871, 1875, 1883, 1884, and 1886.



BENJAMIN HALL KENNEDY 343

Classic in 1862, is a fellow and tutor of St. John's College, at
Cambridge, and has been a frequent examiner for the Classical
Tripos. There is no doubt that in Dr. Butler's time a pre-
ponderating majority of those of his pupils who went to the
universities became Cambridge men. But this preference for
the banks of the Cam was much more marked during the
head-mastership of Dr. Kennedy, although Oxford has not
been without some distinguished representatives of Shrews-
bury besides those who have been already mentioned.
William Inge, 1 who took a first class in Moderations in 1852,
and in the final Classical School in 1853, is now Provost of
Worcester College. The Right Hon. Sir George Osborne
Morgan, 2 Bart., Q.C., gained a Craven university scholarship,
the Eldon Law scholarship and other distinctions while he
was at Oxford, and had subsequently a successful career both
at the Bar and in the House of Commons. He repeated
Brancker's feat of gaining a university scholarship while
still a schoolboy. John Emilius Lancelot Shadwell, 3 of
Christ Church, Oxford, who is now a member of the Govern-
ing Body of Shrewsbury School, carried off the Ireland and
Craven scholarships, and took a first class, both in Modera-
tions and in the final Classical School. Patrick Cumin, 4 C.B.,
a Balliol man, who filled for some years the office of Secre-
tary to the Education Department, was also educated as a
boy at Shrewsbury.

1 William Inge. B.A., 1853; M.A., 1855; curate of Crayke, Yorkshire,
1857-1875 ; Vicar of Alrewas with Fradley, Staffordshire, 1875-1881 ; Examin-
ing Chaplain to the Bishop of Lichfield, 1880-1891, and to the Archbishop of

4 Patrick Cumin> son of William Cumin, Esq., of Glasgow, M.D. Born 1823;
B.A., 1845 5 M.A., 1850; called to the Bar (Inner Temple), 1855. Died 1890.



344 SHREWSBURY SCHOOL

It must be confessed, however, that Shrewsbury has not of
late years sent out many men into the world who have in
after life risen to high position as lawyers or politicians.
Some exceptional cases there are, no doubt, besides that of
Sir George Osborne Morgan. George Druce, 1 Q.C., fellow of
Peterhouse, Cambridge, who was bracketed Senior Classic in
1843, na d attained a very high position at the Chancery Bar
when his career was brought to an untimely end by a fall
from his horse. Lord Thring, 2 third Classic in 1841, who was
Counsel to the Home Office for some years and subsequently
Parliamentary Secretary, was at Shrewsbury School. So also
were the Right Hon. Henry Cecil Raikes, 3 who represented
the university of Cambridge for some years in the House
of Commons, and made a very successful Chairman of Com-
mittees ; and the Right Hon. Sir John Tomlinson Hibbert, 4

1 George Druce was the eldest of six brothers who were educated at Shrews-
bury. He gained the Porson Prize twice while he was an undergraduate, and
was recorded as proxime accessit when his old school-fellow Gifford gained the Pitt
university scholarship in 1842. He was Junior Chancellor's Medallist in 1843.
In addition to his classical and legal eminence, Mr. Druce deserved the credit
that is always given in England to a "good sportsman."

2 Henry Thring, son of the Rev. John Gale Dalton Thring, of Alford House,
Somerset. Born 1818. At Shrewsbury School, 1831-1837 : B.A. of Magdalene
College, Cambridge, 1841 ; M.A., 1844 ; called to the Bar, 1845 Counsel to the
Home Office, 1860-1868; Parliamentary Counsel, 1868-1886; K.C.B., 1873;
raised to the Peerage as Baron Thring, 1886 ; hon. fellow of Magdalene College,
and member of the Governing Body of Shrewsbury School.

3 Henry Cecil Raikes^ son of Henry Raikes, Esq. , Registrar of the Diocese of
Chester. Born November 25th, 1838. In the sixth form at Shrewsbury when only
thirteen years old; head boy, 1856; scholar of Trinity College, Cambridge, 1859 ;
B.A. (2nd class Classical Tripos), 1860; President of the University Union Society ;
called to the Bar, 1 863 ; contested the boroughs of Derby, Chester, and Devon-
port unsuccessfully before he was elected, in 1868, M.P. for Chester; Chairman
of Committees, 1874-1880; in 1880 Raikes lost his seat for Chester, but he was
elected M.P. for Preston in 1882, and later in the year for the university of Cam-
bridge, which he continued to represent till his death in 1891 ; Postmaster-
General, 1886-1891 ; Chancellor of the Diocese of St. Asaph, 1880-1891 ;
Chairman of the Council of Diocesan Conferences, 1880-1886 ; Hon. LL.D. of
Cambridge. Raikes was a strong Churchman, a clever debater, and a good
scholar. In Dr. Kennedy's opinion he would have taken a high place in the
Classical Tripos had he remained at school a year longer. (Diet, of Nat. Biog. )

4 John Tomlinson Hibbert. Born 1824. B.A. of St. John's College, Cam-
bridge, 1847 ; M.A., 1851 ; M.P. for Oldham, 1862-1874, 1877-1886, and 1892-
1895; Secretary to the Local Government Board, 1872-1874 and 1880-1883;
Under Secretary to the Home Department, 1883-1884 ; Secretary to the
Admiralty, 1886 ; Secreta y to the Treasury, 1892-1895.



BENJAMIN HALL KENNEDY 345

K.C.B., the present Chairman of the school Governing Body,
who has sat in several Parliaments for Oldham, and has
held various Ministerial offices. Richard Saul Ferguson, 1 M.A.,
LL.M., F.S.A., Chancellor of the Diocese of Carlisle, Chairman
of Quarter Sessions for Cumberland, and an antiquarian of
distinction, is another well-known Salopian, and a few ad-
ditional names of fairly successful lawyers might be added. 2

In his evidence before the Public School Commissioners in
1862 Dr. Kennedy said that "in public life, at the Bar, and
in the army, Shrewsbury has been sparingly represented in
point of numbers "... that " the bulk of Salopian names is
to be found in the clerical profession "... and that " their
fields of active usefulness have been the universities, the
schools, and the parishes of England."

Certainly neither the army nor the navy drew many
recruits from Shrewsbury School between 1836 and 1866,
although the names of a few boys may be found in the
school lists who gained in after life some distinction in one
or other of those two branches of her Majesty's service.

1 Richard Saul Ferguson. Born at Carlisle 1837 ; B.A. of St. John's College,
Cambridge (twenty-seventh Wrangler), 1860 ; M. A., 1863; LL.M., 1874; called
to the Bar at Lincoln's Inn, 1862. Has twice been Mayor of Carlisle.

2 Ratcliffe Pring served as Attorney-General in Queensland in five administra-
tions, and was subsequently a Puisne Judge in the Supreme Court of that colony.
He died in 1885. Sir John Smalman Smith, who graduated at St. John's College,
Cambridge, in 1870, and afterwards went to the Bar, was made a Puisne Judge of
the Supreme Court of the Gold Coast in 1883, Judge of the Supreme Court and
of the Court of Vice- Admiralty at Lagos in 1886, and Chief Justice in 1889.
William Wynne Ffoulkes has been County Court Judge of the Chester district
since 1875. Francis Williams Raikes, M.A. and LL.D., of Peterhouse, Cam-
bridge, Q.C., has also been recently made a County Court judge. Other well-
known Salopian lawyers are Samuel Hawkesley Burbury, who was head boy
1849-1850, and subsequently graduated in 1854 at St. John's College, Cambridge,
as second Classic, fifteenth Wrangler, and Junior Chancellor's Medallist, after
gaining the Craven university scholarship and a Porson Prize while an under-
graduate ; Cyril Dodd, Q.C., who took a first class in mathematics at Merton
College, Oxford, in 1865, and sat in the House of Commons for the Maldon
Division of Essex from 1892 to 1895, and B. Francis Williams, Q.C., Recorder of
Cardiff. Alfred Cock, Q.C., who died within the last few months at a compara-
tively early age, was also at Shrewsbury School. Another old Salopian, John
Spencer Phillips, who graduated at Trinity College, Cambridge, and was an
excellent oar and cricketer, now occupies a distinguished commercial position as
Chairman of Lloyd's Banking Co.



346 SHREWSBURY SCHOOL

General Horace Montagu, R.E., C.B., Knight of the Legion of
Honour, served through the Crimean War, except during a
few months when he was a prisoner at Odessa. Colonel
Charles Townshend Wilson, of the Coldstream Guards,
author of The Duke of Berwick, Marshal of France ; Lieut-
Colonel Henry Warter Meredith, and Colonel Thomas Basil
Fanshawe, also fought in the Crimea, Major-General John
Robert Sladen, Major-General Horatio Nelson Davies, Captain
Eaton, R.N., Commissary -General Arthur William Downes,
Colonel Arthur James Poole, C.B., and Lieut-Colonel Charles
Edward Yate, C.S.I., C.M.G., are other exceptional cases.

Of the Salopians who have done, or are still doing, valuable
work in two of the fields of usefulness to which Dr. Kennedy
alludes, numerous examples have already been given, and to
educational work in schools, the third of these, several of his
most distinguished pupils have devoted some of the best
years of their lives. Edwin Hamilton Gifford, Senior Classic
in 1843, was second master of Shrewsbury from 1843 to
1848, and Head Master of Birmingham from 1848 to 1862.
Stephen Poyntz Denning, a distinguished graduate of Dur-
ham, was Head Master of Worcester Cathedral School, and
afterwards Warden of Bradfield College. Edward Lawford
Brown, 1 Senior Classic and Senior Chancellor's Medallist in
1858, and fellow of Trinity College, Cambridge, was an
assistant master at Marlborough College from 1856 to 1860.
Alexander William Potts, 2 second Classic and Junior Chan-

1 Edward Lawford Brown. Head boy, 1851-1852; first Bell scholar, 1853;
proxime accessit to Craven university scholar, 1855 ; Porson Prize, 1855. Died
at Marlborough, May Qth, 1860.

2 Alexander William Potts was bracketed second Classic with James Robert-
son, late Head Master of Haileybury, in the same year in which his school-fellow,
E. C. Clark, was Senior Classic. Many old friends have a lively recollection of
" the long but not stern swell " of whom C. S. Calverley speaks in one of his
humorous poems, whose genial temperament, wide range of information, keen
sense of humour, and musical voice made him a very pleasant companion at
Cambridge between 1854 and 1860. To their Head Master's Shrewsbury training
may be attributed in great measure the large number of university prizes carried
off by Fettes boys within a few years, including six Porson Prizes. Some know-
ledge of Potts's sterling character, as well as of the excellent work which he did
at Fettes College, may be gleaned from a volume of his School Sermons, which
was published shortly after his death.

cellor's Medallist in 1858, fellow and lecturer of St. John's
College, Cambridge, and subsequently an assistant master at
Charterhouse and Rugby, was appointed Head Master of
Fettes College, Edinburgh, in 1870, and continued his very
successful work there till his death in 1889.

Henry Whitehead Moss, Senior Classic in 1864, has been
Head Master of Shrewsbury since 1866.

George Preston, late fellow of Magdalene College,
Cambridge, who took a first class in classics in 1864, was
an assistant master at Shrewsbury from 1864 to 1870, and
at Birmingham from 1870 to 1872, and was subsequently
Head Master, first of Ruthin School from 1872 to 1875, and
then of the King's School, Chester, from 1875 to 1888.

George Hanley Hallam, 1 Senior Classic in 1869, and
late fellow of St. John's College, Cambridge, has been for
many years an assistant master at Harrow. Other names
might be added, but enough has been said as to the occupa-
tions in after life of Dr. Kennedy's pupils. Of the incidental
events of school life during his head-mastership there are
a few which should not be passed over without notice.
