He and Juliana went out to Natal on "Lalla Rookh" in 1849; in the same year he was licensed to practice as a Surgeon and they settled in Durban, where a colleague advised him not to rent a small cottage behind the then gaol, since "Mrs. Addison would be terrified by the elephants, who use the verandah poles as rubbing places and are continually knocking them down". Eventually he set up his practice on Smith St. Having joined a committee investigating the possibility of founding a hospital at Pietermaritzburg, early in 1850 he moved to that city where he became District Surgeon (at £20 per annum), Treasurer of the Durban Medico-Chirurgical Society, Surgeon to the local Yeomanry Corps, and Adviser on Medical Matters to the Governor of Natal. Turning to farming, he purchased a property at Howick on the Rift Valley, then in 1858 established a farm called Addington (after his own birthplace) on the banks of the Umvoti River near present-day Stanger; after experiments with cotton, coffee and indigo he eventually achieved great success with sugar-cane. At the same time he was District Surgeon of Tugela Division, Victoria County; then, later, District Surgeon of Durban, and Surgeon of the Government Hospital there. After forty years of devoted service to the Medical Profession in Natal, he died in 1905 at Howick and was buried at Pietermaritzburg. Of his sons it was said "They fear nothing but God".

Mrs. Juliet New writes: “Dear Mr Armstrong, I cannot add to your family tree but can add some personal details about one member of it. Louisa Hallowes married the Revd David Phillips Lewis and lived at Guilsfield, Montgomeryshire for some years.My father, now 80, says that his grandmother, who was born in Guilsfield in the early 1860s, spoke very warmly of Louisa and her family as being more or less her family's saviour. Evangeline Brown, as she was born, was the daughter of a local labourer, Edward Brown, who lost his wife in childbirth in 1871 leaving him a widower with several children to support. His health broken, he also died (1873), leaving the children orphaned. Apparently the Brown children, especially the girls, were helped by Mrs Lewis and either her sister (but that looks unlikely) or his sister (I have no details of his family). Evangeline was, despite her very humble background, able to speak French, a good needlewoman, etc. and this she ascribed to the vicar's family. I also think they helped her into employment.”
This branch of the Lewis Family is being reserched by
Christine J. Lewis, a first cousin four times removed from thr Rev. David Phillips Lewis.

[CE/1] SARAH LAMAL WATKINS
The marriage was childless, unhappy, and short. From The Times, 6/7/1863 (11e):
"POLICE - WORSHIP STREET.- Brabbagan Hallowes (sic), a well-dressed person, 37 years of age, and residing at 10, Esmond-road, Old-ford, Bow, was charged before Mr. COOKE with assaulting his wife.
The police proved that at a late hour on the previous night cries of 'Murder!' were heard by them proceeding from the prisoner's house. On reaching it they found the complainant with one of her eyes frightfully contused and bleeding. Her husband was drunk and using threatening language. She accused him of assaulting her, and gave him into custody.
The complainant said that her husband was continually intoxicated, and as frequently ill treated her. On this occasion he struck her to the floor with his fist, simply because she requested him to go to bed; he also beat her when she was on the ground.
The defendant declared that his wife fell against the latch of the door, and that she was herself tipsy.
Mr. COOKE said that the police-sheet certified that the defendant belonged to the 18th. Royal Irish, and he was astonished at a man in such a position so grossly misbehaving himself. He ordered him to find bail in two sureties of £50 each for four months."
B.M.Hallowes never belonged to the 18th. Royal Irish, though he might possibly have been attached to them during his Crimean War service with the L.TC.; at this time he was an Unattached Lieutenant on half pay, and - lacking either money or influence - entirely without the prospect of further employment in the Army.
He died in St. Thomas's Hospital Southwark, 3/11/1868. His address is given as 7 Hercules Bldgs, Allen St., Westminster Bridge Road, Surrey. He was intestate - by that time his wife had either died or left him - and Administration was granted to John and George.

[CG/1] GEORGIANA MARIA HARE-NAYLOR
b. c. 1844 in Bonn, Germany, d. of Gustavus Edward Cockburn Hare-Naylor of Kilcullen House, Co. Galway, by Sarah Anne, d. of Samuel P. Wright of Wood Green, Mddx. She died 18/4/1890.
Georgiana's family have been known by this surname since Bishop Francis Hare D.D.,(1671-1740) a distinguished churchman of the Later Stuart and Early Georgian periods, married in 1709 his first cousin Bethaia Naylor (1671-1714) eventual heiress of Hurstmonceaux Castle, which had been purchased by her brother George Naylor from the Dacre family in 1708.
Their Children, with their spouses, were:
[CGA] Georgina Margaret 1872-1956
[FG] Edward Price Blackwood Hallowes 1851-1923
[CGB] Frederick Hare 1878-1956
[CGC] Winifred Maud b. 1879
[CGC/1] Ernest Clifford Hardy b. 1866
On the 1871 Census Frederick and his wife Georgiana are found on a visit to his father Admiral John Hallowes, famous for his open hospitality, at Portsea. Surely mistakenly, Frederick's name is given as 'Jonathon'.
HMS Trincomalee, a Frigate built in 1817, has now been restored and is berthed in Hartlepool - the oldest British Warship still afloat.

After Mary died he married as his second wife (2/1/1871) Selina Milverton, born c. 1832 in Chard, Somerset. Both are found on the 1891 Census for Asthall Vicarage, together with his eldest daughter Mary. The Rev. Mr. Ward died at Asthall 23/9/1902, and Selina 16/3/1916.

Having heard that there is a vacancy for a clerk in the Office of the Colonial Civil Service, I have the honor to offer myself as a candidate for the same.

also served throughout the late war as Lieutenant, first in the Native Contingent, and then in Bettington's Horse. Any reference to T Shepstone Esq? Jnr, I am sure will be found satisfactory.
Hoping you will give me this my application your most favourable consideration, I have the honor to be, Sir, your obedient Servant, Walter R Higginson

[HK] RICHARD CARMICHAEL HALLOWES.
Born at Blackrock, 5th. May 1848. He had a twin brother Enracht([HJ]), who died aged 11 in 1859. Educ. at Dr. Stackpole's, Kingstown. He was articled for some years to his father, and was admitted Freeman of the City of Dublin by right of Patrimony, 17/7/1871; see also Dublin Directory 1877. In 1876 he enrolled in St. John's Theological College, Highbury; ordained deacon in 1878 and priest in 1879 (Cashel).
Curacies: Tranmore 1878-80, Dungarvan 1880-84, Abbeyleix 1884-5. Rector of Arklow from 1885. Surrogate, Dio. of Glendalough1911: Canon of Christchurch Cathedral, Dublin 1909-15. While Rector of Arklow he outraged the local community by preaching violently anti-catholic sermons in the open air.
From The Times, March 7th., 1891 (6d):
“The rev. Mr. Hallowes, Protestant rector, and the rev. Mr. Harrison, Protestant curate, of Arklow, were summoned before the magistrates on Thursday for obstructing the thoroughfare by preaching to a crowd of people. The conduct of the rev. gentlemen has for some time back occasioned annoyance to the authorities and indignation among the Catholic inhabitants. Riots have occurred, and the town has been encumbered with police and even with soldiers to protect the ministers. Appeals to them to desist were useless, and the annoyance became so great that summonses were at last served on the rev. gentlemen. The hearing resulted in their conviction. The magistrates ordered each to pay £1 fine which they refused to pay, and the alternative 14 days imprisonment was imposed. Both men were removed to prison, in evident glee at the result Mr. Hallowes crying out “Hallelujah, hallelujah" and Mr. Harrison “Praise God, praise God". The prisoners were taken off to Wexford jail, after making an appeal to some lady friends to pray for them."
This occasioned, four days later, a
Question in the House; and yet another, a full
nine years later.
His mother died at Arklow in 1899 and he himself 20/12/1915. There is a memorial window to him in the church at Arklow, which was built during his incumbency.

In the family he was known as Uncle Willie. In old age he derived much simple pleasure from playing bezique, particularly when he won.
