The election of mayor of Canterbury has taken place when Alderman Cowtan was chosen, in opposition to Alderman Warren. The spirit of the late election for members of parliament was revived, the unsuccessful alderman having made a general canvass of the freemen, and being supported by the interest of Mr. Lushington.

"Died at her house in St. George's Street, Canterbury, aged 62, Mrs. Anne HAMMOND, eldest and only surviving daughter of the late William Hammond esq. of St. Alban's Court, Nonington, Kent, who died 1773, by Charlotte, daughter and co-heir of William Egerton, LL.D. &c. &c. Her moral and religious character has seldom been equalled, much less excelled. For many years she devoted herself, with unceasing assiduity, to the sick bed of her sister, who died in 1804; and from the hour that death separated them her own health seem to decay; and she could not break the habits of seclusion to which she had consigned herself. Her understanding was strong by nature, and improved by constant exercise. She read, and thought much; and her opinions were consulted and regarded with high respect by those who had admission to her; for, though she did not, in her latter life, visit others, her own doors were open to all her friends. To be brief; her uncommon sisterly affection, her piety and conscientious conduct, made her venerable while living, and will long render her memory sacred." The Gentlemen's Magazine 1807 (Historical Chronicle, for the year MDCCCVII Volume LXXVII, part the second

 

from a letter written 1745....I wish you a good journey to Houghton, and a safe return to Cambridge; and if you please to favour me with a line at any time within a fortnight, be pleased to direct it to me at Mr. Shrubsole's, in St. George's street in Canterbury. I am, &c. Rich. Warren - Illustrations of the literary history 1822

Thomas Clark was born in 1775 at his father's house and boot shop business at 35 St George's Street Canterbury, now Marks & Spencer's; apprenticed to his father as a cordwainer, and made a Freeman of Canterbury in 1796. His claim to fame was as an arranger and composer of tunes and hymns: his first publication was in 1805 aged 30, and he would go on to publish a significant number more. In 1812 said to have composed music for opening of the new Methodist Church in St Peter's Street, and was in charge of the singers there. During the 1840s he retired from the shop in St George's and moved to Stour Street where he died on 30 May, 1859 at 84. Buried in Wincheap Burial Ground.
