the Baronet of that name , and once famous as a Colonel in the Protector ' s army . Her grandfather and her uncle , the late Rev . W . Buckley , of Dukinfield , sustained , with unvarying credit and respectability , the important duties of the ministry , fot niore than half a century ,
at Dukifcneld * Chapel . ; ( The grandfather succeeded ' the celebrated Mr . Angler , of this place , and the uncle , with the intervention of some who remained but a short time with the congregation I succeeded his father . ) Conscious that her own character ought not to depreciate the
credit of being so respectably allied , she sustained with dignity , she combated with unabated efforts , the obstacles which accumulated disappointments presented . Though often plunged in deep distress , her mind remained firm , and her conduct displayed inflexible perseverance .
She was the mother of a numerous family , and once had reason to' look forward , through commercial prosperity , to an ample provision for them all . In this expectation her hopes were frustrated , and about the same time her eldest child , a most amiable and accomplished daughter , fell a victim to that tyrant
" Whose shaft flew thrice , and thrice her peace was slain , " in the gloomy succession of after bereavements . Her second daughter and her eldest son became then the objects of her renewed solicitude . The boy was
apprenticed to a liberal profession , and the daughter ' s education directed to qualify her for the instruction of others . Scarcely were her fine talents sufficiently matured , and a seminary reared , in which they began to display themselves to no common advantage , before disease began to
threaten their total extinction . Previous , however , to these fears becoming realized , the son of her hopes , one whom she had destined to take his younger brothers by the hand , returned sick from
his master ' s employment , and , to the inexpressible regret of all who knew him , sunk prematurely to thq grave . The loss of a child , and sometimes of many children , becomes the lot of ni 6 st ' parents to endure ; but to lose * one designed to

six children survive her ; the eldest of whom , the present Miss Egelsome , well qualified for her arduous undertaking will place herself at the head of that seminary which has heretofore been so ably conducted by her sister , herself , and her revered and beloved mother-. The child of one so tried cannot be said to be
inexperienced ; the witness of so much talent and virtue cannot be unprepared fcp the duties now devolving upon herself . The limits of the present notice preclude any development of character except what the events already mentioned point out . If this task was
faithfully executed it would furnish materials equally interesting and important . From her the most affluent might derive salutary distrust in their greatest prosperity , and the most indigent , lessons of economy and forethought in their narrowest circumstances . Perhaps one trait
of her character ought not to be omitted , and it is this—she never neglected herself . Always neat in her appearance , and of the most unassuming and retire /} demeanour , the correctness of her language , and the propriety of her manners , never sunk
below that of the gentlewoman . She seldom uttered a murmur , or ventured a complaint . Her attendance upon public worship was exemplary—her devotion ardent and enlightened . Her Christianity was the gold that had sustained the heat of the furnace ^—her robe that * which had been dyed in much tribulation . W . H .
