My apologies for some of the formatting. I assure you, it looked much more attrative in Wendy Jack's original format, but once her Word files talk to my web site software, all hell breaks out. Regrets, regrest.
Anyway, it is in this generation that we witness the personal costs of the Boer War and WWI. Roland Ernest LORD was invalided out of Boer War in 1900, only to go back. Three brothers lost their lives: George Barlow BARTLEY DENNISS in the defence of Wagon Hill in the Boer War; Henry Barlow BARTLEY DENNISS died in 1913; Thomas Vivian BARTLEY DENNISS died of wounds in 1918. John Franklyn PETERS was killed at Ypres where he is remembered in a memorial on the same tablet as his brother, Gerald Hamilton PETERS, who went missing, presumed dead. The saddest story in my mind is that of Eric Skeffington POOLE who "had the unenviable distinction of being the first British Army officer executed during World War I." The full story is beneath. David Clements BATES also died in WWI
Later, during WWII, Thomas Jackson HOUSTON died of dysentry as a prisoner of war in Hong Kong
We also see more connections with the Far East and banking in the late 1800s and early 1900s. Robert Thomas WRIGHT and David JACKSON, both managers at HSBC, Yokohama; John Stevenson Reed WRIGHT with the Imperial Bank of Persia, James Francis WRIGHT in Hong Kong with a brokerage.

However, the inscription of the family tombstone gives her year of death as 1892. She was buried in the churchyard of Cahans Presbyterian Church in Lisnaveane, Parish of Tullycorbet, Co Monaghan, Ireland. [li]

       88.  Edmund Robert Bartley DENNISS was born in London, England on 9 April 1854. [lii]  Occupation: barrister.  Edmund married Margaret Ellen BARLOW on 22 August 1877 at St Paul's Church, Kersal, in Manchester, England. [liii]   Margaret was born circa 1859 in Oldham, Lancashire, England. [liv]  Edmund served as a Member of Parliament, representing the constituency of Oldham, Lancashire in the House of Commons.  He was knighted, and became known as Sir Edmund BARTLEY-DENNISS. Edmund died 20 March 1931 at Belmont in Uxbridge, Middlesex, England. [lv]   His funeral was held on 25 March 1931 at St Andrew's Church in Uxbridge, Middlesex, England. [lvi] Edmund Robert Bartley DENNISS and Margaret Ellen BARLOW had the following children:

        144       i. George Barlow BARTLEY DENNISS was born in Hendon, Middlesex, England in November 1878. [lvii]   He was educated at Harrow, where he was a mathematical scholar.  He then attended the Royal Military Academy in Woolwich. [lviii] This institution prepared young men for commissions in the Royal Engineers and the Royal Artillery (as its counterpart the Royal Military College, Sandhurst prepared men for line commissions).  Although they wore uniforms similar to that of a subaltern without insignia, the 'gentlemen cadets' were not part of the military or subject to military law.  Their parents paid fees for their attendence at the Academy, and entrance was by a competitive examination.

                              George received his commission on 23 March 1898.  On 16 September 1899, he sailed for South Africa aboard the Gaul, and the following week the second lieutenant joined the 23rd Field Company Royal Engineers in Ladysmith, Natal.  He was in Ladysmith when Boer forces besieged the town in the early months of the Boer War.  The town was surrounded and rail and telegraph links were cut on 2 November 1899 - a siege that would not be relieved until 1 March 1900. Unfortunately George did not live to see the siege lifted. In the early hours of the morning of 6 January 1900, he was with a party of 33 sappers and NCOs of the Royal Engineers, under the command of Lieutenant Robert Digby-Jones, who were working on gun emplacements on Wagon Hill.  They had installed a Navy 12 pounder, and were working on the mountings for a 4.7" gun, which was to have been brought up later in the day.  They were accompanied by 13 Royal Navy men and 170 Gordon Highlanders, who provided escort and were to move the 4.7" gun.  Wagon Hill was located at the west of a ridge within the town's defensive perimeter.  The ridge, known as the Platrand, was about 4km long and its crest varied in width between 800 and 1200 meters.  The eastern end was known as Caesar's Camp, and was fortified with a series of small sangars.  Wagon Hill was garrisoned by men of the Imperial Light Horse, but had no trenches, sangars or wire entaglements to aid its defence.  In the pre-dawn darkness, Boer Commandos climbed the southern slopes and attacked both Wagon Hill and Caesar's Camp.  Had they succeeded in gaining these positions the town would have been forced to capitulate, as the ridge's 120m height afforded commanding views of Ladysmith.  By dawn, the Boers held the southern edge of both ends of the ridge, but their advance had been stalled by the British forces who still held the northern side. During the morning the officers and men of the Imperial Light Horse made several charges in an attempt to clear the Boers from Wagon Hill, but the attempts were unsuccessful and costly.  In the early afternoon a party of about 15-20 Boers charged the 4.7" gun emplacement. Lieutenant Digby-Jones and Trooper Albrecht of the ILH led a counter charge, killing the leading Boer soldiers and halting the enemy advance.  As he rallied his men, Lieutenant Digby-Jones was mortally shot in the throat.  George Denniss went to his assistance and was himself shot in the head and killed.  Both Robert James Thomas Digby-Jones and Herman Albrecht were awarded posthumous Victoria Crosses for their valour in the defence of Wagon Hill. [lix]

        145      ii. Elsie Christina DENNISS [lx] was born in Hendon, Middlesex, England circa 1880. [lxi]   Elsie died circa 1883 in England. [lxii]   Her death was registered in the March quarter of 1883 in the Kensington Registration District.

    + 146     iii. Cyril Edmund BARTLEY DENNISS was born circa 1883 [lxiii] and died 6 January 1955. [lxiv]

        147     iv. Henry Barlow BARTLEY DENNISS was born at Langton Lodge in Hendon, Middlesex, England on 15 June 1885.  Occupation: Lieutenant, Royal Navy.  Henry died 18 January 1913 at Belmont in Uxbridge, Middlesex, England. [lxv]   He was buried 21 January 1913 at Hillingdon & Uxbridge Cemetery in Hillingdon, Middlesex, England. [lxvi]   His interment followed a funeral service at St Andrew's Church, Uxbridge, Middlesex, England.

        148      v. Margaret BARTLEY DENNISS was born in Hendon, Middlesex, England circa 1888. [lxvii]   Margaret married Albert LEACH on 1 October 1913 at St Andrew's Church in Hillingdon West, Middlesex, England. [lxviii]

        149     vi. Irene Mary BARTLEY DENNISS was born in Hendon, Middlesex, England circa 1889. [lxix]   Irene's engagement to James Harold BROWN was announced in The Times newspaper on 3 May 1919. [lxx]   They married on 7 August 1919 at St Andrew's Church in Hillingdon West, Middlesex, England. [lxxi]   He was the son of Thomas BROWN of Marham Hall, Norfolk Irene and James celebrated their silver wedding anniversary on 7 August 1944. [lxxii]   They were residing in Shotesham, Norwich at the time.

        150    vii. Thomas Vivian BARTLEY DENNISS was born at Gayton House in Harrow on the Hill, Middlesex, England on 29 October 1891. [lxxiii]   He was educated at Harrow and at Sandhurst. [lxxiv]   During World War I Thomas served as an officer in the British Army.  He was rapidly promoted, and achieved the rank of acting Lieutenant Colonel in the Royal Berkshire Regiment. Thomas died of wounds on 28 August 1918 at the Military Hospital in Denmark Hill, London, England. [lxxv]   He was buried 31 August 1918 in the family grave at Hillingdon & Uxbridge Cemetery in Hillingdon, Middlesex, England. [lxxvi]   His interment follwed a funeral service at St Andrew's Church, Uxbridge.

       (Note: In the December quarter of 1883, the birth of a Leslie Augustus B. DENNISS was registered in the Hendon Registration District; his death was recorded in the June quarter of 1884.  He was probably another member of this family, but this has yet to be confirmed.) [lxxvii]

       90.  Georgina Louisa DENNISS was born in England in June 1861. [lxxviii]   Her birth was recorded in the September quarter of 1861 in the Kensington Registration District. Georgina married Percy KEEN on 28 February 1888 at the parish church in Hendon, Middlesex, England. They were married by Georgina's brother, Rev. Augustus Brooke Warden DENNISS . [lxxix]   Percy was born circa 1846 in Bermondsey, London, England. [lxxx]   He was the son of Thomas Robins KEEN and Anna MANCHESTER .  He was baptized on 14 January 1846 at Saint John Horseleydowns in Bermondsey, London, England. [lxxxi]   Occupation: wharfinger.  Georgina Louisa DENNISS and Percy KEEN had the following child:

        151       i. Geoffrey Percy KEEN was born at 34 Manor Park in Lee, Kent, England on 17 April 1889. [lxxxii]

       (The birth of a child, Percy Edmund A. KEEN, was recorded in the Fulham registration district in the June quarter of 1894; [lxxxiii] his death at age 2 was registered in Paddington in the March quarter of 1897.  His name suggests that he may be a member of this family, but this has yet to be established.)

       92.  Margaret Pennefeather Stukley GRAY was born in Cape of Good Hope, South Africa on 2 June 1846. [lxxxiv]   Margaret married Artemas LORD .  Artemas was born on 10 May 1837 in Prince Edward Island, Canada. [lxxxv]   Occupation: agent, Department of Marine & Fisheries.  Artemas died in 1917. [lxxxvi]   He was buried in the People's Protestant Cemetery in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. [lxxxvii]   Margaret died in 1941. [lxxxviii]   She was buried in the People's Protestant Cemetery in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. [lxxxix] Margaret Pennefeather Stukley GRAY and Artemas LORD had the following children:

        152       i. Roland Ernest LORD was born in Prince Edward Island, Canada on 15 February 1878. [xc]   He was known by his second name, Ernest. Ernest served in the Boer War. He enlisted in the Royal Canadian Regiment of Infantry on 21 October 1899 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. [xci]   His enlistment papers record that he was an unmarried clerk who was serving in the 82nd Battalion militia unit.  He was described as being 6 ft 1 in in height, and of dark complexion. His records show that he was a private in the 2nd Special Service Battalion R.C.R.  He was discharged and invalided to England on 11 August 1900. [xcii] However, he returned to South Africa and in September 1901 was a sergeant in the Bush Veldt Carbineers in Transvaal. [xciii] For his service in the Canadian forces, Ernest recieved the South Africa Medal with three Clasps - Paardeberg, Dreifontein and Cape Colony. [xciv]

        153      ii. Harry H. LORD was born in Prince Edward Island, Canada on 22 March 1880. [xcv]   Occupation: telegraph manager.

        154     iii. Gladys S. LORD was born in Prince Edward Island, Canada on 5 March 1882. [xcvi]

        155     iv. Florance H. LORD was born in Prince Edward Island, Canada in October 1884. [xcvii]   In the 1901 Census of Canada, it was recorded that she was of unsound mind from childhood.

        156      v. Victor H. LORD was born in Prince Edward Island, Canada on 2 January 1887. [xcviii]

        93.  Florence Hope Gibson GRAY was born in England on 16 February 1848. [xcix]   Her birth was registered in the Maidstone registration district in the June quarter of 1848.

       Florence married Henry Skeffington POOLE on 15 June 1876 in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada. [c]   Henry was born on 1 August 1844 at Albion Mines in Stellarton, Nova Scotia, Canada. [ci]   He was the son of Henry POOLE and Elizabeth Noad LEONARD .  Occupation: mining engineer.  Henry was educated at King’s College in Windsor, Nova Scotia, where he received a BA in 1865 (MA 1874, D.Sc. 1903). His father was a mine manager, and the younger Henry follwed in his footsteps, attending the Royal School of Mines in London, England, then gaining experience as an underground supervisor in a coalmine at Cape Breton, and a lead-silver mine in Utah.

       During the period 1872-1878, Henry served as inspector of mines in Nova Scotia.  He was instrumental in the introduction of mine-safety legislation in Nova Scotia, and was vigorous in the promotion of new technology, but throughout his tenure he remained firmly on the side of mine management.

       In 1879, Henry became manager of the Arcadia Coal Company in Stellarton.  Following the company's 1886 merger with the Halifax Company Limited and the Vale Coal, Iron and Manufacturing Company, Henry was the manager of a business with more than 1000 employees and an annual coal production nearing 275000 tons.

       Henry became a spokesman for mine masters, co-ordinating their opposition to union-proposed changes to minig legislation.  In 1881, Henry was appointed to the government's board of emaminers - a body composed entirely of mine managers and responsible for granting mandatory certificates of qualification to mine officials.

       In 1901 Henry resigned from the Acadia Coal Company and joined the Geological Survey of Canada as a part-time geologist; he played a vital part in surveys of New Brunswick coal seams and the Nanaimo-Comox coalfield of Vancouver Island. He had a long and varied interest in natural history (extending to entomology, meteorology, botany, and ornithology), and his articles appeared in many publications.  From 1902 to 1905 he was president of the Nova Scotian Institute of Science, and he became a part-time lecturer in the School of Mining and Metallurgy at Dalhousie University in Halifax.

       After his retirement, Henry and his family moved to England, where they lived at Guildford in Surrey. [cii] Henry died 31 March 1917 at Spreyton in Guildford, Surrey, England. [ciii]  

       Florence died 17 February 1923 at Castle House in Guildford, Surrey, England. [civ]   She was buried in Guildford, Surrey, England. [cv] Florence Hope Gibson GRAY and Henry Skeffington POOLE had the following children:

        157       i. Henry B. POOLE was born in Nova Scotia, Canada circa 1877. [cvi]

        158      ii. Dorothy POOLE was born in Nova Scotia, Canada circa 1879. [cvii]

        159     iii. Edward POOLE was born in Nova Scotia, Canada circa 1879. [cviii]

    + 160     iv. Lucy POOLE was born in September 1880. [cix]

        161      v. Eric Skeffington POOLE was born in Nova Scotia, Canada on 20 January 1885. [cx]   Eric had the unenviable distinction of being the first British Army officer executed during World War I.  His first experience in the military was in Canada, where he served in a militia unit, the 63rd Regiment (Halifax Rifles) between 1903 and 1905.  After his family's move to England, Eric joined the Territorial Force in October 1914, serving as a driver in B Battery, Honourable Artillery Company. On 3 May 1915 he was commissioned as a temporary second lieutenant in the 14th Battalion, West Yorkshire Regiment and a year later was transferred to France to serve in the 11th Battalion of the West Yorkshire Regiment, part of the 23 Division.

                              On 9 July 1916, during fighting near Contalmaison on the Somme, Eric was hit by clods of earth thrown up by the nearby explosion of an enemy shell, and was hospitalized for shellshock. After a period of convalescence, he was pronounced fit for duty and on 1 September returned to his unit, which was then at Ploegstraat in the Ypres Salient.  A fortnight later the Battalion returned to the Somme, and at Martinpuich near Albert he was placed in command of a platoon of C Company.

                              On the morning of 5 October 1916, Eric complained to another lieutenant of feeling "damned bad" and rheumatic, and was thinking of seeing a doctor.  That same evening, the Battalion received orders to move from the reserve trenches on to the front line at Flers, a move that was accomplished in small groups over a period of hours.  Eric subsequently testified that "since I have had shell shock I at times get confused & I have great difficulty in making up my mind".  It was in this condition that he wandered off from his unit; his absence was not discovered until around midnight, when C Company were settled in their new position.

                              The next morning, Eric visited the medical room of another unit also stationed at Martinpuich, seeking tablets to relieve his rheumatism. The medical officer was unable to assist him, and suggested that he try a Field Ambulance station.  The following day, Eric was detained at Henencourt Wood, about 6km west of Albert, when he sought directions to the 23 Division. He was transported back to his battalion transport lines, where the battalion quartermaster Lt. E.A. Cooper observed: "He seemed to me to be in a very dazed condition and from conversation which I had with him I came to the conclusion he was not responsible for his actions. He was very confused indeed."

                              On 10 October, the battalion commander Lt Col. M.G.H. Barker had Lt Eric Poole arrested, and nine days later, after a court of inquiry had been convened to examine Eric's absence, Brigadier General T.S. Lambert recommended that the lieutenant should not be court martialled because he was "not really accountable for his actions.  He is of nervous temperament, useless in action, and dangerous as an example to the men."  Lambert wrote to the 23 Division commander, Major General J.M. Babington, declaring:  "I recommend that 2nd Lieut. E.S. Poole be sent home away from the firing line as soon as possible.  Before the war he was employed on engineering work in Canada. He could usefully employed at home in instructional duties or in any minor administrative work, not involving severe strain of the nerves."  The Assistant Director Medical Services, 23 Division, examined Poole on 21 October, and noted: "Physically he is in a good state, but he is of a highly strung, neurotic temperament, and I am of the opinion that it is possible the excitement may (bring) on a condition which would make him not responsible for his actions at the time."

                              Despite these opinions and recommendations, on 25 October the Army Commander, Lieutenant General Henry Rawlinson ordered  that Lt Eric Poole be charged with desertion.  He was confined at the town of Poperinghe, and it was there that his General Court Martial was held on 24 November.  The prosecution called six witnesses to testify to Eric's absence, amongst them his company commander, who remarked, "On the only occasion we had been in the trenches before this I noticed his nerves seemed rather shaken."  Other than Eric, two witnesses from his battalion appeared in his defence: another second lieutenant, and the unit's medical officer. Both testified to Eric's confused state of mind.

                              The court martial found Eric Poole guilty, and sentenced him to suffer death by being shot.  A medical board was convened on 3 December.  It determined that Eric was of sound mind, although his mental powers were described as being less than average and it was remarked that he was dull under cross-examination and that his perceptions were slow.  The board also determined that he was of sound mind when he absented himself  from his unit on 5 October, and was capable of knowing that such an act was wrong.  (It is interesting to note that the president of the board was the same medical officer who considered Eric to be fit for duty and return to his unit the previous August.)

                              The matter was then referred to the army Commander in Chief, Field Marshall Douglas Haig.  During World War I, more than 3000 members of the British forces were sentenced to death by army courts martial.  The penalty was applied only in about 10% of cases.  Haig confimed the sentence - a decision which appears to have been politically motivated rather than taking into consideration the circumstances of the case, as Haig recorded in his diary: "Such a case is more serious in the case of an officer than a man, and it is also highly important that all ranks should realise the law is the same for an officer as a private." [cxi]

                              Eric was executed by firing squad at 7.25 am on 10 December 1916 at the town hall in Poperinghe, West Flanders, Belgium. [cxii]   He was buried Poperinghe New Military Cemetery in Poperinghe, West Flanders, Belgium. [cxiii]

       95.  Bertha Hamilton GRAY was born circa 1862. [cxiv]   Bertha married Frederick PETERS .  Frederick was born on 8 April 1852 in Prince Edward Island, Canada. [cxv]   He was the son of James Horsfield PETERS and Mary CUNARD .  Occupation: barrister.  Frederick died on 29 July 1919 in Prince Rupert, British Columbia, Canada. [cxvi]   He was buried at Ross Bay Cemetery in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada. [cxvii]   Bertha died 28 July 1946 in Nelson, British Columbia, Canada. [cxviii] Bertha Hamilton GRAY and Frederick PETERS had the following children:

    + 162       i. Mary Helen PETERS was born circa 1887 [cxix] and died 25 November 1976. [cxx]

        163      ii. Frederick Thornton PETERS was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada on 17 September 1889.  Frederick died 13 November 1942. [cxxi]   He is remembered on the Portsmouth Naval Memorial.

        164     iii. John Franklyn PETERS was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada on 19 October 1892. [cxxii]   He was known to family and friends as Jack. Occupation: bank clerk.  Jack enlisted in the Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force on 1 December 1914 in West Down South, Devon, England. [cxxiii]   He was recorded as being 6 ft 1½ ins tall, with blue eyes, brown hair and a fair complexion.

                              Jack served as a private in the 7th Battalion (British Columbia Regiment), Canadian Infantry.  The battalion was stationed at the Ypres Salient in April 1915, at the time of the Second Battle of Ypres - a particularly bloody engagement which also saw the first large-scale use of poison gas as a weapon.  The Salient was a front more than ten miles long surrounding the town of Ypres (now called Ieper) in Flanders, Belgium, bulging more than five miles into German-held territory. Initially in the brigade reserve, all but the First Company of the 7th Battalion were moved into front-line positions during the night of 22/23 April.  During a time of very heavy casualties (it is estimated that the combined losses on both sides were more than 100,000 in little more than a three-week period), the toll amongst the men of the 7th was extreme.  Within a period of less than three days its colonel was killed and 600 of its officers and men were either killed or wounded, including every company commander. Some companies lost every officer.  Over 900 men had moved forward on the 22nd; less than 350 returned safely to the lines on the 25th.  The men of First Company who had been held in reserve fared no better.  They went into action with the 8th Battalion, and only 25 of 100 men survived. [cxxiv]

                              Unfortunately, Jack was amongst the casualties. He died 24 April 1915 in Ypres, West Flanders, Belgium. [cxxv]   He is remembered on the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial in Ieper, West Flanders, Belgium, which bears the names of more than 54,000 soldiers who were lost without trace in the defence of the Ypres Salient. [cxxvi]

        165     iv. Gerald Hamilton PETERS was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, Canada on 8 November 1894. [cxxvii]   Occupation: bank clerk. 

                              Gerald enlisted in the Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force on 9 February 1915 in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. [cxxviii]   He was described as being 6 ft 1½ ins in height, with brown hair and eyes and a clear complexion.

                              Gerald served as a lieutenant in the 7th Battalion (British Columbia Regiment), Canadian Infantry.  In early June 1916, the Canadian 1st, 2nd and 3rd Divisions were still stationed in the Ypres Salient.  On the morning of 2 June, the Germans launched an attack which was to become known as the Battle of Mount Sorrel.  Their objective was two-fold: to seize and retain the strategically important high ground of Mount Sorrel and Tor Top ridge (Hill 62), and to pin down the Allied troops to prevent them being moved to join the troop build-up preparing for the Somme offensive, or to relieve the beleaguered French who since February had been decimated by the German offensive at Verdun. The Canadians were subjected to an intensive artillery barrage in the morning, which was followed in the early afternoon by an infantry advance which quickly overran Allied lines and captured the high ground.  The Canadians attempted a counter attack the following day, but it was unsuccessful and costly, as the new German positions afforded them excellent observation posts over the Salient, Ypres and the rear area, and allowed accurate direction of the German artillery.

                              It was during this battle that Gerald went missing, and he is presumed to have died on 3 June 1916.  Writing to his mother shortly after, Gerald's eldest brother (an officer serving in the Royal Navy) entertained the hope that his brother had survived and been captured by the Germans:  If our stretcher party could find no signs of Gerald, it is unlikely that he is killed & nothing that anyone can tell me will convince me otherwise...  I do not give up hope. [cxxix] It is unclear if Fritz was simply trying to comfort his mother, or if he truly believed in his brother's survival.  Which ever is the case, his hopes were in vain.  Although the Canadian forces eventually re-took Mount Sorrel and Tor Top on 13 June 1916, Gerald's body was never recovered.  He is remembered on the Ypres (Menin Gate) Memorial in Ieper, West Flanders, Belgium, on the same panel that bears the name of his brother Jack, who was killed the year before.
