Being advised, as my friends are all true supporters of the cause, to lay my case before you, I feel sorry that I was not able to tender my vote, having lately taken out my copy, but I hope on all future occassions you will not find me wanting. Gentlemen, I hope you will lay it before his Lordship; hoping whatever his Lordship will be pleased to bestow will be gratefully received and gratefully acknowledged."

Before Mr. D. AMOS (in the chair) the Deputy Mayor (Councillor W. H. NETHERCLIFT), Mr. G. J. DRURY, and Captain STEAD.

The Coronation - Extensions Refused.

Mr. J. W. KENNETT, landloard of the Weavers' Arms, Broad Street, and Secretary of the Canterbury and District Licensed Victuallers' Protection Society, applied for a general extension of one hour to all the licensed houses in in the City on the nights of Thursday and Friday on the occasion of the Coronation. Mr. KENNETT pointed to hte fact that in the City of London and a Dover a free grant had been made of this privilege. Questioned by some of the magistrates and the Clerk, the applicant had to admit that he had not been asked by the whole of the occupiers of licensed houses in Canterbury to make this application. He had, however, been asked to do so by many of them. Mr. G. J. DRURY; Then you want us to force it on many of them. Applicant said it would be open to those who did not wish to do so not to avail themselves of the privilege. It would, however, be a privilege to the licence-holders and a great convenience ot hte public if it could be granted, as there would be fireworks and a bonfire on the Old Park at ten p.m. The Clerk inquired if there were any other applications and a large number of licence-holders made individual application. Supt. Farmery being appeald to, said he took neutral ground in the matter of hte application. Several licence-holders had been to see him on the subject. They explained to him that they did not want the extension unless other houses remained open. The Bench retired and the Chairman subsequently announced that they had decided to refuse the applications. They considered that there was no ncessity for an extension on the occasion.

I fetched him from a place about 3 miles off. He told me that he was going to vote for Mr. Edwards; when I took him, and he voted, he kept on annoying me, and said he could not get back again. I took him to Mr. Bass. Mr. Bass was not at home, but in the presence of Mrs. Bass, I gave him 4s. That was because he voted? Yes, I had fetched him from the country and he had left his work.

Stephen ELVEY, Broad Street, Professor of Music (1805 - 1860)

Born in Canterbury, "at an early age he was admitted as a chorister of Canterbury Cathedral, under Highmore Skeats"

The Musical Times 1906, page 379, write up and photograph? by Mr. J. G. Charlton, Canterbury

Frank Leslie's Sunday Magazine - Stephen Elvey was born in Canterbury, June 27th, 1805, and gained his first musical knowledge as a chorister boy. On the death of Alfred Bennett, in 1830, Elvey was appointed his successor as organist of New College, Oxford, and his connection with the University lasted till his death, October 6th, 1860. He received the Mus. Doc. Degree in 1838, producing on each occasion an elaboaret anthem. His compositions were not numerous, and consisted chiefly of chants, hmntunes, anthems and Church services. (*some years before his death he had to submit to the amputation of a leg, through a gun accident whilst shooting. *A dictionary of music and musicians)

His younger brother George Job Elvey, born at Canterbury, March 27th, 1816 (in a small house in Union Street), was much more celebrated both as an organist and as a composer. He also began his musical education as a chorister, and continued his studies under his brother Stephen. His anthem "Bow Down Thine Ear," gaind the Gresham price medal in 1834. His exercise for his degree of Mus. Bac. from Oxford in 1838, was a short oratorio entitiled "The Resurrection and the Accesnsion," which produced in public by the Sacred Harmonic Society at London, on December 2d, 1840. It has also been given at Boston, U.S.A.. For his Mus. Doc. degree, received in 1840, he produced an anthem. ....His compositions for the Church service are numerous and important, and his tune to the Harvest Hymn "Come ye, Thankful People Come," is universally known and admired....He composed a Festival March for full orchestar for the wedding of the Princess Louise in 1871, and the same year he was knighted by the Queen.

...We know from inscriptions on the flyleaves of two of the partbooks that they were given to Stephen ELVEY in Canterbury on 31 August, 1827 by a certain John WILLIAMSON. Stephen was 22, and was studying composition with the cathedral organist Highmore Skeats. (this is in the University of London Library)
