OBITUARY.

THE PRINCESS SOPHIA MATILDA OF GLOUCESTER.

92

Nov. 29. At her official residence at

Blackheath, aged seventy-one years and six months (to a day), her Royal Highness the Princess Sophia Matilda of Gloucester, Ranger of Greenwich Park.

She was born at Gloucester house on the 29th May 1773, the eldest child (and only surviving daughter) of Prince William-Henry Duke of Gloucester, (brother to King George the Third,) by Maria, Countess Dowager of Waldegrave, widow of James second Earl of Waldegrave, K. G. and daughter of the Hon. Sir Edward Walpole, K.B. second son of the first Earl of Orford. The King not having countenanced the marriage of his brother, the infant was privately baptized by Dr. Moss, Bishop of St. David's, on the 26th June, the Princess Amelia in person, and the Duke and Duchess of Cumberland, being

sponsors.

Her Royal Highness for many years past has resided alternately in Curzon-street, May Fair, and at Blackheath; the latter residence was assigned to her as Ranger of Greenwich Park, in addition to which her Royal Highness also enjoyed a grant of £7,000 a year. The unostentatious and unfailing charities which were so liberally and bountifully dispersed by her Royal Highness will cause her loss to be severely felt by the poor. On all occasions of a public nature, whether a church was to be built or a school founded, her Royal Highness was always first to contribute her subscription on a most liberal scale. She was an annual subscriber to every local charity. A year before her demise her Royal Highness placed in the hands of the Vicar of Greenwich (the Rev. W. A. Soames) 1007., to be invested for the Jubilee Alms-houses, and 1007. for the Blue Coat Girls' School; but her liberality was chiefly felt in acts of private charity, which were dispensed with a most judicious discrimination. The executors named in the will of her Royal Highness are George Bankes, Esq. M.P. for Dorset, and the Hon. and Rev. Henry Legge, Vicar of Lewisham; and the Executrixes Lady Alicia Gordon and Miss Cotes.

cal attendant, Mr. Wattsford, of Crooms Hill, Greenwich, dated "Blackheath, Friday morning, nine o'clock," commanding his earliest attention. That gentleman immediately went, and found his Royal patient labouring under considerable oppression of the chest, and at her request administered a soothing draught, which afforded instant relief. She then expressed a wish to be left alone, as she hoped to obtain some repose. Mr. W. returned home soon after ten o'clock, but in a few minutes after a messenger came, and announced great fear of her Royal Highness surviving until his return. Mr. W. returned with the messenger, and found that her Royal Highness had just breathed her last, and, as he understood, without a sigh.

The remains of her late Royal Highness lay in state at the Ranger's house, Blackheath, attended by ladies and others of her late Royal Highness's household, during Monday the 9th December. The public were admitted from twelve o'clock at noon till four o'clock in the afternoon. A guard of honour, from the 2d battalion of Coldstream Guards, mounted in front of the house, at half past eleven A.M. and remained on duty till four o'clock in the

afternoon.
