Nottingham Woman Seek Divorce

Marriage That Took Place Secretly

Unsuccessful Petition.

Mrs Mabel Frances Ratcliff (nee Shipstone) of Lenton Hurst, Derby Road, Nottingham, yesterday petitioned before Lord Merrivale, in the Divorce Court, for a dissolution of her marriage with her husband, Mr. Mortimer Frederick Ratcliff, on the grounds of his adultery with Mrs. Margaret Sylvia Coates.
Mr. Ratcliff denied adultery, and Mrs. Coates intervened in the suit to contest the allegation. The petition was dismissed.

According to the petitioner's case, Mrs. Ratcliff, daughter of Sir Thomas Shipstone, was married secretly to Mr. Ratcliff at the Nottingham Register Office in February 1912, and there was another ceremony at All Souls' Church, Nottingham, in May of the same year. There were three children.

In May 1930, there was a separation, and Mrs. Ratcliff's allegation was that her husband had been associated with Mrs. Coates since 1929.

Mrs. Ratcliff gave evidence, and called as witnesses Mr. Arthur Powdrill, ex-inspector of Police, and an enquiry agent of Nottingham, Dr. Henry Vernon Taylor of Mansfield-Road Nottingham, and Walter Clark, chauffeur, of Clarence Street, Nottingham.

Mr. Ratcliff, the respondent, gave evidence. His case was that he never knew Mrs. Coates until January, 1931, and then he occasionally met her on terms of ordinary friendship.

Mrs. Coates, the wife of Herbert Coates, whom she married in October, 1926, also gave evidence denying the charge.

Substantial Fortune.

In the result, Lord Merrivale dismissed the petition and dismissed the intervenor for the suit.
In his judgement, his Lordship said the case was a painful one. Mrs. Ratcliff was possessed of a substantial fortune. Mr. Ratcliff discussed intimate matters with his wife in a way which greatly displeased her. A separation took place.
It appeared, however, that the wife knowing her husband's temperament, began to suspect him and desired to be rid of her marriage tie. She had her husband watched by Mr. Powdrill, but although he watched for six weeks he could report nothing except social intimacy.

Mrs Coates was a young woman whose father died when she was little more than a child, and she married Mr. Coates as his second wife. She was the mother of four of his children. Her husband had come to court to stand by her, and had stated that his wife has full confidence and he considered that the charges were not true.
Mrs. Coates had not been shown to be a woman who would yield to such proposals. Her husband said that he never had the slightest need to suspect his wife.
"I have come to the conclusion" proceeded Lord Merrivale, "that the visit of Mrs. Coates to Lenton Hurst in August, 1929, is an invention or a mistake. It did not take place. I am not even satisfied that Mr. Ratcliff was there that day.
His Lordship added that Mr. Ratcliff was a successful man of business, trusted by his father-in-law, Sir Thomas Shipstone. Mr. Coates's confidence had been well founded.

Lord Merrivale ordered that Mrs. Coates should have the costs of her defence as against Mrs. Ratcliff. "She has had charges made against her which might well have ruined her life, if not contested," he said. "Mr. Ratcliff has laid himself under suspicion, and the only order that I make about his costs is that he shall have paid out to him the costs he paid into court as security."10

Resch Noteafter 2 April 1871 Research Note:
disappears after 1871 census, rather like her father disappears after 1861 census and brother after 1871 cenusus. No suitable death index entry (even under variants). Found in no census return (81, 91, 01).
Perhaps they emigrated?3
 
Resch Notebetween 3 April 1871 and 1881 Research Note:
No further sign of this Mary Shipston.

She is not the one who married James McDonald on 6 Oct 1873.
 
Resch Note*6 October 1873 Research Note: at St. Nicholas, Nottingham, NTT,
May have married Dec 1873 Nottingham 7b 540
Shipston, Mary Ann = MacDonald, James

Check Parish Records for parents
(she shoukld be daughter of Thomas & Ann).9,10
 
Resch Note1881 Research Note:
No evidence in 1881 census of such a couple, nor Mary Ann on her own.
 
Resch Note1891 Research Note: at 34 Key Street, Bulwell, NTT,
There is a James McDonald age 39, gas Hostler? born Tewkesbury, GLS, with Mary A McDonald age 41 in Bulwell with children Elizabeth 16, Ann 14, James 11, Thomas 8 & Sarah 5 Is this Mary Ann?11
 
Resch Notebetween 1 July 1897 and 30 September 1897 Research Note: at R.D. Burton
Church Broughton is in R.D. Burton.

Ref:P 6b, 392 Austin, Jane

Mother's surname - Shipston!

Woah - I am good!

Hunt for Shipston = Austin
Mar 1873 7b 137 R.D. Basford - Jane Shipston = Philip Austin

So who was Jane Shipston, and how related to Mary Ann? ...

Well, 1881 shows a Jane Austin age 26 in 10 Chine St? Bulwell (wife of game keeper, gone Alma)
with children Annie age 11, John age 6, Henry W age 3
With Richard Shipston, brother age 21, elementary school teacher.

So we have:
Mary Ann Shipstone bn 1850 = James McDonald 1873
Jane Shipstone bn 1855 = Philip Austin 1873
Richard Shipston bn 1860, brother of Jane.

Mary Ann adopts a daughter of Janes' in 1901


The Mary who married James MacDonald may not have been John & Hannah's daughter ...?
 
Resch Note1901 Research Note: at 24 Key Street, Bulwell, NTT,
James McDonald age 50, gas stoker, worker, born Tuxsbury, GLS, with Mary McDonald age 52 born Nottingham, NTT with children James 21 (brickmaker), Thomas 18 (wicker basket m.), Sarah 15 (Lace mender) & Jane A? Martin? or Austen? (transcribed as Jane Austin) adopted dau age 3 born Church Broughton, DBY. Is she a child of one of their eldest daughters?11
 
Resch Note2020 Research Note:
So we have:
Mary Ann Shipstone bn 1850 = James McDonald 1873
Jane Shipstone bn 1855 (of Thomas & Ann Wilkinson - Bulwell family bn Jun 1854) = Philip Austin 1873
Richard Shipston bn 1860 (of Thomas & Ann Wilkinson - Bulwell family bn Mar 1860), brother of Jane.

Mary Ann adopts a daughter of Janes' (Jane Austin bn in 1898 Why would she do this if unconnected)?

Children of Thomas & Ann Wilkinson of Bulwell
Eliza 1845
Mary Ann 1848
George 1850
Jane 1854
Richard 1860
Sarah 1862
Elizabeth 1866

So the story of Mary Ann Shipston = James McDonald belongs to the Thomas = Ann Wilkinson Bulwell family, not the daughter of John & Hannah Fletcher.

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Étaples is a town about 27 kilometres south of Boulogne. The Military Cemetery is to the north of the town, on the west side of the road to Boulogne.

During the First World War, the area around Étaples was the scene of immense concentrations of Commonwealth reinforcement camps and hospitals. It was remote from attack, except from aircraft, and accessible by railway from both the northern or the southern battlefields. In 1917, 100,000 troops were camped among the sand dunes and the hospitals, which included eleven general, one stationary, four Red Cross hospitals and a convalescent depot, could deal with 22,000 wounded or sick. In September 1919, ten months after the Armistice, three hospitals and the Q.M.A.A.C. convalescent depot remained.

The cemetery contains 10,773 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, the earliest dating from May 1915. 35 of these burials are unidentified. Hospitals were again stationed at Étaples during the Second World War and the cemetery was used for burials from January 1940 until the evacuation at the end of May 1940. After the war, a number of graves were brought into the cemetery from other French burial grounds. Of the 119 Second World War burials, 38 are unidentified. Étaples Military Cemetery also contains 658 German burials and a few war graves of other nationalities. The cemetery, the largest Commission cemetery in France, was designed by Sir Edwin Lutyens.14,10,13

Anecdote*8 March 2006 From "Woodborough War memorial" web site

"PERCY SHIPSTONE

Percy Shipstone was born in 1889 and was the son of Elizabeth Shipstone and the husband of Mabel who was recorded as living at 306a Radford Road, Nottingham. Percy was the manager of the Co-operative store in Woodborough which was where the present day Newsagent and Post Office is situated.

Percy served as a private with 10th Battalion Cheshire Regiment. It is possible that Percy was present at the Battle of Messines which occurred between 7th and 14th. June, 1917 as his battalion is recorded as being in the second wave of the attack. As Percy died on 23 June 1917 it is likely he was injured during this campaign. It seems certain that he died of his wounds as he is buried in Etaples Military Cemetery. This cemetery is the largest British military cemetery in France and most people buried there died of their wounds. If Percy had been wounded on the battlefield, he would have first been attended to by the field hospital and then sent to a military hospital near the coast and well out of the way of enemy guns. Those who were lucky and had received a ‘blighty’ wound would have proceeded to a port and then been returned to Britain.

Fig: 8

Unfortunately, this was not to be for Percy and he died on 23rd June 1917 at the age of 28 years. The inscription on his gravestone reads "Peace after Pain". Percy’s brother, Leonard, also died of wounds and is also buried at Etaples Military Cemetery. He was younger than Percy. Both brothers are commemorated on the war memorial at Greasley Church as the two were born and brought up in that area."18 
Resch Note*15 August 2010 Research Note: at New War Memorial, Eastwood, NTT,
Officially recognised on a new War Memorial, which was dedicated in Eastwood on 15 August 2010.
Yes, 93 years late, and shortly after I had transcribed the previous memorial...
As both Percy and Leonard B Shipstone were born in Eastwood, so their presence on the new memorial is probably right, though they are both commemorated in Greasley, on parent's grave, and in the church.

Note that Percy is also named on Woodborough's war memorial too (as he lived there briefly with hs wife) - so he gets 3 mentions (Leonard only 2).19
 
(Subject) Newspaper*January 2015  He and Leonard Boden Shipstone were the subject of a newspaper article in January 2015.

Nice article in Ilkeston & District Local History Society's journal "The Herald" by Grant Shaw (with photos)

(Grant Shaw has done a fantastic article here, the basic information could well have come from this website, so I hope they don't mind me repeating the text ... and it is for the benefit of the family of those named. I visited the graves in 2013 - before I had read the letters in the article below. For additional interest, see the link and buy Grant's book Off to War - open link in separate window).

The Shipstone Brothers

A Great War Tragedy
By Grant Shaw

Percy Shipstone was born in 1889 and his younger brother Leonard in 1896 in Eastwood. Their parents were Edward Shipstone (a colliery banksman) and his wife the former Elizabeth Boden Mellor, daughter of William Mellor, a butcher on South Street, Ilkeston. By 1911 they had five other siblings and the family was living at Nottingham Road, Giltbrook. In the 1911 census when aged 14 Leonard is stated to be an "errand boy", and Percy is a "grocer's assistant". Percy (whom the family called "Poss" went on to be Grocery Manager and Buyer at the Co-operative shop at Woodborough, Nottingham. He married Mabel Hodgkinson in April 1915.

Percy joined up on 11th December 1915. Although he joined the Sherwood Foresters he was later posted to the Cheshire Regiment and underwent training at Rugeley. By 14th May 1917 he was in France. Leonard had joined the Royal Field Artillery in October 1915; he was a tall lad, and this posed a problem as the army initially couldn't find a uniform which would fit him.

(Photo of Len in his new RFA uniform)

He underwent training at the Deepcut Camp in Hampshire and sent at least one letter home to his mother, ending with the words "Absence makes the heart grow stronger".

Posted to the 402nd Battery, RFA Len was sent to fight in France, rising slightly in rank to that of "fitter". He was wounded on 26th April 1917, probably in the battle for Vimy Ridge as his unit were attached to the Canadian Army attaching there. He was sent back to a General Hospital on the coast with severe leg injuries. On 27th April Len managed to send out one of the short pro-forma cards on which the Army had allowed the briefest of messages, saying that he had "been admitted to hospital and was going on well".

(Photo of "Poss" and Mabel Shipstone)

One of Len's friends, a Bombardier H. Eyre, wrote to his parents to reassure them:

... your son Len ... got a slight wound in the leg yesterday. Len asked me to drop you a note to tell you not to worry too much for he would soon be better. He may get to England with it and he thought ... you would have worried about him. I am a friend of your son and I hope he will soon (regain?). Please let me (know) when he get a letter to you my address is the same as his. Hoping to hear from you, I remain your son's friend, H. Eyre.

Percy managed to get leave to go and see Leonard. When he arrived on 18th May 1917, he was told that his younger brother had died earlier that day. Percy wrote a letter home to his mother and father, which has survived.

The sister told me he passed away at 12pm last night and she thought he knew he was dying. He asked for his mother, Jim and Ethel. I don't know who Jim is but most probably it would be his chum so perhaps in the course of the next few days he will be writing you ... It was the shock of my life when the sister told me the news, but she said his left leg would have been 6 or 8 inches shorter than the other had he lived, but I would sooner have him lived than died as he had done. If God spares me to come back I shall be able to tell you all the news, so cheer up dear mother and don't trouble to much he has died a noble death and I know he has gone to heaven. Someday we shall all be able to meet him and what a gathering it will be. I must now close I can't bear to write any more. I will write you more details when I get settled down a little more. So good-bye and God bless you all. Ever your loving son Poss xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

Percy was 28, Leonard and Percy are buried not too far apart in the huge Commonwealth War Cemetery at Etaples. In 1917 the area around Etaples contained several hospitals which together could deal with 22,000 wounded or sick. The cemetery contains 10,771 Commonwealth burials of the First World War and is the largest CWGC cemetery in France. Both brothers are commemorated on their parents' grave in Greasley Churchyard and on the memorial screen in the church itself. Percy's widow Mabel was awarded 13 shillings and ninepence a week pension. After the war, she made the trip to France and visited Percy's grave. Mabel remarried in 1931 and died in 1973 aged 85.

My friend Michael Talbot contacted me when I was researching Off to War to give me a copy of Len's memorial notice and an amusing photo which is reprinted here. He had been clearing out his mother's house as she had moved into residential care and has no idea of how these came to be in his mother's possession as there seems to be no family connection. Although Len is not strictly an Ilkeston man, his mother was from Ilkeston, so he made it into the book. After the book was published, I was approached at a WW1 event at Erewash museum by a lady who turned out to be a great niece of Len and Percy, Christine Allen. Christine kindly invited Michael and I to go and meet her father Don who provided us with much of the information and photographs in this article. I am very grateful indeed to all of them for sharing this story.

Tollerton Plane Tragedy

Young Airman Killed Instantly.

Two Somersaults.

Tragic Week-end visit to Nottingham.

A young airman was instantly killed when a machine belonging to the Nottingham Aero Club crashed into a ploughed field near Cotgrave yesterday.

He was Mr. Ronald Leslie Wing, 20, a member of a well known Nottingham family, who had taken the machine out from Tollerton Aerodrome.

Mr. Wing was the only son of Mr. and Mrs. A. Leslie Wing, of Coldwell-Road, Sheffield, and a nephew of Mr. Ronald Shipstone.

He was staying during the weekend at Reigate House, Cyprus Road, Mapperley Park.

Yesterday afternoon Mr. Wing, who was a qualified pilot, arrived at Tollerton from Nottingham, took off in a single-seater Moth, and flew at a fairly low altitude over the Cotgrave district.

Shortly after 4 o'clock he was flying at a height estimated by an eye witness as not more than 100 feet over Cotgrave Place, when he made a sharp left-hand turn, and in doing so seemed to lose flying speed. The machine rolled over twice, nose-dived, and crashed to earth within 30 yards of the main road.

On striking the ground, the plane turned two complete somersaults and was totally wrecked, the engine embedding itself into the ground some feet from the body of the machine.

People who witnessed the crash and rushed to the scene found Mr. Wing still strapped to his seat amongst the wreckage.

Eye-Witness's Story

According to eye-witnesses, the machine had been making circular flights over Cotgrave Place for some time. It had maintained a fairly low altitude, but, with the engine running normally and the machine steady in flight, nothing untoward was expected, and casual onlookers were horrified when in turn the machine suddenly rolled and crashed.
Mrs. Steward who lives in a cottage within a short distance of where the crash occurred told a "Post" representative that she was in the garden at the time. "We get used to the machines coming over from Tollerton," she said, "and take very little notice as a rule."
"The Moth machine that came over this afternoon seemed to be taking a normal course and flying steady, but the altitude seemed to me to be rather low. When the left hand turn was made, and the wing dipped, I thought at first that the pilot was going to stunt, but when the machine rolled over, and gave another roll, I realised that it was our of control. The low altitude gave the pilot no chance to recover, and the machine developed a nose dive and crashed at terrific speed."
The machine, added Mrs. Stewart, struck the ground with such a force that it bounced up again, and then turned two somersaults.

Keen Airman

Mr. Ronald Shipstone told a "Post" representative last night that his nephew was extremely keen on flying, and although he secured his certificate, only a few weeks ago, he seemed quite at home in any kind of machine. He was educated at Malvern, and was learning to be a brewer, being articled with a Falkirk firm.
He made frequent visits to Nottingham, and never lost an opportunity of going to Tollerton for a flight.
Mr. Wing was a member of the Croydon Aero Club, and some six months ago he made a daring parachute descent from an aeroplane at a height of some 4,000 feet.
The inquiry will probably be held tomorrow.

Missing Handbag

Miss Muriel Robinson, who was one of the first to go to the aid of the injured pilot, informed the "Post" to-day that when the accident happened she rushed in her car to the opposite side of the aerodrome, and left it to go to the scene of the crash. When she returned and hour and a half later she found that her handbag had been stolen.
The bag contained her Air Ministry licence and the Royal Aero Club licence, which she is particularly anxious to recover, and some two or three pounds in money. There were a large number of people about at the time.33

Local Happenings

The question of the formation of a social club by the Nottingham High School Old Boy's Society was discussed when the members met at an extra-ordinary general meeting of the society, held at the school last night. The chair was occupied by Mr. Ronald Shipstone. It was agreed that parents of old boys and other such persons as may be deemed suitable by the committee should be allowed to join the club, to the extent of 20 per cent. of the membership, in order to extend the scope of the committee raising the funds.

A suggestion was made that there should be a personal canvas of member, and to allow this to be done, the meeting was adjourned for six weeks when a financial statement will be presented.38

Bulwell Section Anglers Dine

Some most interesting stories about the Nottingham tramway services were told last evening at a festive gathering of the Bulwell depot section of the Nottingham Passenger Transport Department Angling Society, held at the Olde Milton's head, Derby-road, Nottingham.

Mr. W.G. Habgood, who presided, was supported by Mr. Ronald Shipstone (a generous patron of all sports), Mr. O.K. Arnold (assistant rolling stock inspector of the Passenger Transport Department) and others. Mr. W.G. Marks (manager of the department) was unable to be present owing to family illness.

The Bulwell section yesterday fished the competition for the "Bobbie" Shipstone silver cup (given by Mr. Ronald Shipstone in memory of his little son). This was won by Mr. F.J. Bexton (for the second year in succession), Mr. W.G. Hapgood being runner-up. The match was fished in the warm waters of the canal at Trowell. Mr. Shipstone said he would give a replica of the cup to the winner each year.

During the evening, Mr. Ronald Shipstone presented to ex-inspector Frank Lowe a handsome clock subscribed to be the general public and his colleagues in the Passenger transport Service.

Mr. Ronald Shipstone.

In making the presentation, Mr. Shipstone said that no man in the public service was held in higher respect, and even affection than Mr. Lowe.

Ronald Shipstone Cup

Presentation at Nottingham Dinner


Tributes to the public-spirited men who have assisted the Nottingham Association for the Unemployed, particularly in the matter of organising the football league, was paid at a dinner given to the finalists for the Ronald Shipstone Cup by Mr. R.A. Shipstone at the Carlton Hotel, Noel-Street, Nottingham, last night.

Mr. Shipstone presided, supported by Mrs. Shipstone, Mr. A.G. Hines (chairman, Notts. F.A.), Mr. A. Adams (vice-chairman), Professor R. Peers (chairman of the association for the unemployed), Mr. H.A. Bennett, and Mr. H. West (organiser).
The winners of the trophy were Y.M.C.A., and the runners-up Radford, and the members of the winning team were presented by the donor with engraves cigarette cases.
In submitting the toast of "The Notts. F.A.", Mr. West expressed appreciation for the Unemployed by the Notts. F.A. in regard to referees, and in other directions. The attendance at the semi-finals and final had been disappointing and consequently the Unemployed Football League was in financial difficulties, and they were grateful for the assistance granted, and also to Mr. Adams who acted as chairman of the League.
Mr. Adams, in reply, referred to the two referees proposal, and said that he did not consider it a fair trial to test it at practice matches. He had an open mind on the matter. If it was a success it would be welcomed by those clubs who could afford two referees. It would not apply to amateur football.

Benevolent fund aim.

Turning to the subject of the Notts F.A. Benevolent Fund, Mr. Adams stated that it was being very well supported. They were aiming at £200 this season, and were within £30 of that sum. He hoped that as the result of the collection at the Notts. match this week the total aimed would be reached.

The toast of "The National Association for Unemployed Workers" was submitted by Mr. H.A. Quinn, who paid a tribute to the work of Prof. Peers.

Prof. Peers, in reply, said that when the association was started five years ago he little dreamed how it would develop. Whenever anything required to be done there had always been generous citizens who had put their shoulder to the wheel. Workshops had been provided and equipped. It was a tribute to the members of the association that they had been had any disagreement with the people whose premises they occupied.

Many people had helped them, and it was inspiring to know that there were people of the calibre and kindness of heart of Mr. Shipstone.

The toast of "The Chairman" which was submitted by Mr. H.A. Bennett was accorded musical honours. Mr. Shipstone in reply, recounted an interesting anecdote of his playing days when the referee (Dr. Tinsley Lindley) called the players together and said he wanted no ankle tapping or hooking, but plenty of honest charging, and added "I want to blow the whistle for the start, half-time, the resumption, and the finish, and no more but for goals."

The speaker went on that professional football was a career for the young man who would look after himself. Barring accidents he should have 10 or 15 years in front of him, and in that time should receive the benefits. He should be able to save half of his earnings, and retire with £1,000 or £1,300.

All the young men needed was coaching. Many young men had left Nottingham because of the lack of it. "We could fill the grounds if we had local lads playing for our teams, and it is all a question of coaching them," he declared amidst applause.45

Head of Leading Brewery - Death of Mr. Ronald Shipstone

Mr. Ronald Shipstone, joint managing director of J. Shipstone and Sons Ltd., brewers, New Basford, died today at his residence, Lucknow House, Lucknow Avenue, Nottingham. He would have attained his 64th birthday this month, and had been ill about a month. The cause of death was pneumonia.
Mr. Shipstone was "Ronnie" to an unusually wide circle of friends. No one will ever know the extent of his financial assistance to organisations and individuals. He never sought the limelight, in fact, he disliked publicity. It was only in a roundabout way that one heard of his benefactions, long after they had been made.
Mr. Shipstone was one of a family of seven. His uncle was the late Sir Thomas Shipstone, and his grandfather founded the brewery firm in 1852. Educated at Nottingham High School, he left there to enter the brewery business, and became brewer for several firms. For some time he was with Plymouth Breweries Ltd,for whom he became head brewer.
Upon the outbreak of the Great War he promptly volunteered for service and after training with the 9th Batt. King's Royal Rifles was transferred to the 4th Rifle Brigade, and proceeded to Salonika on active service in 1916.
During operations on the Balkan front he sustained a gunshot wound in the right arm which eventually had to be amputated.
Upon the death of his father Mr. Shipstone joined the firm of J. Shipstone and Sons Ltd., in 1922, and two years later was elected a member of the board of directors, ultimately becoming joint managing director with his brother, Mr. James Henry Shipstone.
In politics, Mr. Shipstone was a staunch Conservative. He filled the office of hon. treasurer of the City of Nottingham Conservative Party, while at Plymouth he was chairman of the Stonehouse Conservative Association.

Notts. County F.C. President

But it was from the realm of football that Mr. Shipstone derived one of the greatest pleasures in life. In his younger days he was a good amateur player, and later he became a fine organiser. He helped many clubs financially. When Lord Belper resigned the presidency of Notts. County Football Club in 1940, after holding that position for 10 years, Mr. Shipstone then a life member was appointed to the position.
As a boy he played for Notts. Magdala (now Nottinghamshire F.C.), and helped the formation of the Midland Amateur Alliance, at that time being a player official of Magdala Amateurs, a very successful offspring of Notts. Magdala. He was hon. secretary for several seasons. Mr. Shipstone was also a cricketer, and when he lost his arm he became a tennis player.
As Commandant of Nottingham City Special Constabulary since February 1939, he was extremely popular, and in 1943 was awarded the Special Constabulary Long Service Medal. He did everything he could to foster the movement, and was the donor of several trophies. In Freemasonry, he was a Past Master of the De Vere Lodge.58

and
Horace Priestley (Mr. Priestley also attended family funeral(s). Appears in 1939 born 1875 an married to Clara Wright in 1899)

Mary Shipstone is almost certainly the wife of James Leslie. There are no other "Mary Shipstones" in the family at this time.



£500 each to his nephews and niece,
Leslie Bruce and Madge;

At this date he has the following living nephews and nieces in 1945:

Edith Mary had:
- Gwynedd Mary King (nee Morley)
James Hugh Gordon had:
- James Warwick Shipstone
- Pamela M Shipstone (soon to be Thompson)

Perhaps those mentioned were children of his wife's Dorrie' siblings?

In Memoriam


SHIPSTONE - Ronnie. November 17th 1944. Happy thoughts of a good friend, whose one ambition was to help lame dogs and bring sunshine. "Good Old Warrior" Ronnie, whose name will ever be blessed and remembered.69
 
(Mentioned) Newspaper1 June 1953 He was mentioned in a newspaper article on 1 June 1953. Over a Century of Good Brewing

When James Shipstone first opened his brewery to service the people of Nottingham, he was not embarking on a novel service.

Nottingham had for centuries enjoyed a reputation for brewing; its ancient rock-hewn caves had proved ideal for fermentation and storage and Nottingham ale was famous and popular.

The peculiar mineral properties of the local waters had created and maintained a certain quality in brewing which was the envy of other towns.

Into such an establishment craft came the young James Shipstone. He was a great man with great ideas, whose courage matched the adventurous streak in his nature.

He planned along ambitious lines and was a pioneer in the application of science in the development of industry.

"Pleasantly Reached"

In a Nottingham handbook of 1852, it is recorded thus: "Basford, two miles and a half North of Nottingham, may be pleasantly reached either on foot or by railway". Here, James Shipstone founded his brewery.

In 1880, his eldest son, another James, was taken into partnership and when another son, Thomas, came in four years later, the firm James Shipstone and sons was brought into being.

On the death of the founder in 1897, the second James became chairman and continued in that capacity until his death in 1940, when James Henry and Ronald Arthur Shipstone became joint managing directors. Ronald died four years later, and James Henry carried on until his retirement brought into office his son, the fourth James Shipstone.

The House of Shipstone is now in its second century of development, and the policy established by four generations which has proved eminently successful will be maintained.

The high standard of their products is as well know as their familiar star trade mark, and their magnificent horses.70 
(Mentioned) Newspaper3 February 1958 He was mentioned in a newspaper article on 3 February 1958. Named as brother of James Henry Shipstone, and became joint managing directors of Shipstone & Sons "nearly 20 years ago", in the announcement of the death of James Henry Shipstone.71

Name Variation  Samuel Shipston was also known as Shipstone. 
Resch Note*1853 Research Note:
Others have the Samuel Shipston who married Dinah Broadhead to be the son of Esau & Elizabeth Ann Richards nee Shipstone, born 1853.

There is also a Samuel Shipston of John Shipstone (carpenter) & Isabella Glover born 1854.

Neither of them are this Samuel...

The marriage of Samuel to Dinah Broadhead certificate definitely states John as his father - and he is recorded as a Brewer!!
Most likely to be this one then ... son of John & Hannah Fletcher
This is confirmed in latest GRO birth indexes, mothers maiden name is "Fletcher".

Edwalton Wonder, a piebald sired by Grand Cadet, and belonging to Mr. Shipstone of Edwalton Manor, Nottingham, was, however, now installed in premier position.

Her Separation Allowance

Nottingham Woman's Shocking Negligence



"You are no Mother," said Mr. T. Shipstone from the Bench this morning at the Guildhall, Nottingham, addressing a woman named Annie Stirland, 32, 50 St Paul's Street, who was charged with neglecting her three children, aged respectively 12 years, five years and 11 months.

The evidence showed that prisoner is the wife of a soldier, and on Monday last she drew her separation allowance, left her children alone in the house, and did not return until Saturday. Meanwhile neighbours had to feed her children, and eventually a doctor was called in , and after examining them ordered their removal to Bagthorpe Infirmary. An officer said the unfortunate youngsters were miserable, neglected, and wanted medical attention. When charged Stirland said "I admit it; I spent my allowance on drink".

Prisoner told the magistrates, Mr. T. Shipstone and A. H. Franks, that she was very sorry; it would not have happened but for the drink.

Mr Shipstone: "There is one thing - you are no mother".

The woman's husband appeared in the dock in uniform, and pleaded for his wife, but the bench sentenced her to a month's imprisonment, Mr. Shipstone adding "Let your children have a rest and a wash-up".55

Gifts of £9,00 to General Hospital

From Sir T Shipstone and his company


It was announced, yesterday, at a meeting of the House Committee of the General Hospital, that Sir Thomas Shipstone had stated his intention of making a handsome gift to the Hospital Building Fund.
Sir Thomas Shipstone's personal gift is £6,000, and he has also informed the hospital authorities that his company - Messrs. T. Shipstone and Sons - will give a further donation of £3,000 making £9,000 in all.
The announcement was received with the liveliest satisfaction, not only by the committee, but also by the hospital staff, who have not forgotten previous gifts of all kinds from Sir Thomas.
Three or more similar gifts will enable the hospital to proceed with their building programme without incurring any dept.
Recent gifts to the hospital in connection with the extension scheme include the following:

Mr. W. G. Player £50,000
Sir Louis Pearson £5,000
Mr. James Forman £1,000

It was officially stated recently that when the extension is completed, the total cost of maintaining the hospital will be greatly increased, necessitating an augmentation of income by about £10,000 a year.

Improvements at the General Hospital

Generous Gift by Sir Thomas Shipstone

Old Operating Theatre Reconditioned


The old operating Theatre at the Nottingham General Hospital has just been reconditioned at the expense of Sir Thomas Shipstone, who was president of the hospital in 1927-28.

It will be remembered that last year a new operating theatre, the gift of Sir Louis Pearson, was opened by Lord Moynihan, and since then the old theatre has been undergoing reconstruction.
The cost of the work has been about £4,000.
It is impossible for a great hospital like the Nottingham to manage with one main theatre for major operations. Now it will have two, in addition to smaller theatres for othapaedic, nose, ear and throat, and minor operations, and one in the casualty department.



The "Shipstone" operating theatre, as it is now to be called, has been in regular use for 30 years, and has been the scene of operations by many eminent surgeons. The reconditioning has been carried out in a most thorough manner. New floors and walls have been formed in terrazzo, and by various devices more space had also been obtained.
New features include a fresh operating window, chromium plated and fitted with non-actinic glazing so as to exclude heat rays. Fresh fittings have been installed in the sterilising and anaesthetic rooms as well as in the theatre. All wood work has been removed so as to facilitate cleaning and avoid harbourage of germs. By a special arrangement, ether and spirits will be piped direct into the theatre instead of having to be kept there in containers. Steel and glass cupboards and shelves for instruments and other requirements have been installed.

Emergency Lighting

An attempt has been made by improving the ventilation to minimise the strain and discomfort entailed on doctors and nurses during major operations, and the air is now warmed and filtered before it enters the theatre. The operating table can be raised or lowered at a touch, and an emergency lighting system functions automatically in the vent of failure of the ordinary supply.
A considerable amount of work has also been done to the sterilising, anaesthetic and surgeons rooms, and the communicating corridor to the operating block has been re-formed.
Another improvement at the hospital consists of the reconstruction of the therapeutic department. This is now in the ropewalk block. New X-ray apparatus and lead-lined cubicles have been put in.
Good progress is bing made with the men's new medical block, which is to take the place of the terrace huts. The huts were built in 1916 for the accommodation of wounded soldiers, and has 47 beds. A portion has already been demolished to make way for the foundations of the new block. It will be a one-storey building overlooking the Park, and will contain 33 beds. The cost is about £23,000, the whole of which is being defrayed by Mr. W. G. Player, the chairman of the Hospital Monthly Board.
Messrs. Evans, Clark and Woollatt, of Wheeler-Gate are the architects for the whole alterations.80

In 1925 he and his firm donated £9,000 towards the Rope Walk wing building fund; in 1931 he gave £4,000 for re-conditioning of the old operating theatre, which is now known by his name; and in 1926 he made a further gift of £3,000 following Sir Louis Pearson's broadcast appeal. In all his gifts towards the hospital have exceeded £20,000.

The Eye Infirmary, Ellerslie House, the British Red Cross Society, and Nottingham University College have also been objects of his generosity.

Sir Thomas, who has been on the Commission of the Peace for the City for over a quarter of a century, was knighted in 1922. Recently he has been in indifferent health, but is now stated to be improving.93

GREAT BENEFACTOR


The death occurred yesterday, of Sir Thomas Shipstone, of Lenton Firs, Nottingham, and principal of the well-known brewery company that bears his name. On Sunday, October 13th, he attained his 89th birthday.
Sir Thomas, who had been described as "a little man with a big heart" was born on October 13th, 1851. He was the fourth son of the late Mr. James Shipstone, the founder of the brewery firm of James Shipstone and Sons Ltd., and one of the largest concerns of its kind in this part of the Midlands. He had been chairman and managing director of the company, and under his active control, and with the help given by his two nephews, Mr. J. H. and Mr. Ronald Shipstone, the business has been extensively developed.

In 1925 he made a personal gift of £6,000 to the building fund, and also announced a further donation of £3,000 from his firm.
This was by no means the first time nor the last that he helped the hospital, of which he was president in 1927. Another example of his generosity was provided in 1931, when he gave £4,000 for the reconditioning of the old operating theatre which is now known by his name.
During the last war, he made large personal gifts to the British Red Cross Society and organised a fleet of ambulances from the brewery trade. The Eye Infirmary Wllerslie House (the home for paralysed soldiers and sailors), University College endowment fund, new local churches, and the Bomber Fund, were also objects of his generosity. He was knighted in 1922. He had been on th commission of the peace for the city for nearly 30 years.
Sir Thomas, who married a daughter of Mr. John Loverseed, of The Park, Nottingham, had three daughters, Mrs Mackness, wife of Lieut-Commander G.J. Mackness, Nottingham, Mrs Snell, wife of Dr. J. Eric Snell, Edwalton, and Mrs. Ratcliff, Derby-Road, Nottingham.
There is now only one survivor of the 12 children of Mr. James Shipstone, Mrs. Cattle, of Smalley Hall, near Derby, widow of Mr. F. Cattle, solicitor, Ilkeston and Heanor.

There were so many people in the auction room at Lenton Firs, Derby-road, Nottingham, yesterday, for the opening of the sale that some of the bigger lots were crowded out.

The contents of the house, the property of the late Sir Thomas Shipstone, attracted great interest among both professional buyers in the city and county and from householders.

Long before the sale was started by the auctioneer, Mr. Lionel Kirk, the room was packed.

The sale continues for five days, when hundreds of treasures, including famous pictures, antiques and bronzes will have been sold.

Some fine bronzes

The main feature of the first part of the sale was keen bidding for a number of fine bronzes - chiefly animal figures and miniature French and Florentine bronzes.

Two oriental bronze herons, standing higher than the auctioneer's assistants, fetched £2 17s. 6d. and £2 2s. 6d. respectively, while there were several keen bids for an Oriental bronze tortoise, which went for £1 10s.

A curious stuffed bird, introduced as an Australian emu, stood solemnly by until it was finally knocked-down for £1 2s.

Exquisitely-modelled bronzes, a camel and giraffe, fetched £3 10s., and a French (Manin) model of a heron and bulldog £1 10s.

A marble pedestal which had cost originally £40, went for £3 10s.

Duel for Carpets

Although they fetched only 36s., a Florentine bronze model of a mountain goat and a small model of a camel attracted interest.

A finely-carved French bronze statuette, originally costing £35 was knocked down for £4.

Also in the animal collection was an embossed lion doorstop which went for £3 5s., a stuffed leopard for £4, and a bronze elephant for £7 10s.

One of the keenest bids was for a bronze statue "The Kill", depicting huntsmen, horse and hounds. This originally cost over £80 and after bids lasting several minutes went for £17.

A French bronze group of two horses jumping a hurdle fetched £25.

A Turkey carpet was eagerly sought by two bidders and went for £52, while a Turkey rug went for £7 5s.

(Note the piutcure abive shows "afirst of a series of convalescent homes for soldiers to be established in the area at Edwalton Grange" - owned by Mr. and Mrs, W.A. Woodsend. It is possible that one of Sir Thomas Shipstone's grandchildren - via A E Snell - is pictured but not named).112

Keen bidding at Lenton Firs Sale

Bidders stood shoulder to shoulder in the auction room at Lenton Firs, Derby-road, Nottingham, yesterday, as they competed keenly for the fine bronzes amongst the effects of the late Sir Thomas Shipstone.

Monday's total was £2,200, and it was evident from the prices fetched by many of the lots yesterday that interest in the sale has not flagged.

An C.A. mains H.M.V. all-wave radiogram realised 143 guineas after bidding had opened at 40 guineas.

With its exquisitely carved mahogany cabinet in the form of a Chinese pagoda, the Aeolian gramophone found a quick sale at £5.

A Florentine bronze nude figure "The Huntsman", by Lanson, caught the eye of the buyers, whose bidding raised the price to £23.

Equally keen was the competition for another bronze, this time a group of two wolves by the Frenchman Joiret. It was sold for £21.

The price paid for a bronze group of two horses and a rider, by Malissard, was £15.

A handsome Turkey carpet attracted the attention of the buyers to the extent of a final bid of £42.

Possible danger to property from incendiary bombs probably proved an incentive to the purchase of a steel fire-proof safe. The successful bidder paid £34 for it.

Lively interest was also displayed in the pollard oak dining furniture. For £21 a sideboard changed hands, while for a set of ten dining chairs £29 was paid.113

The very finely and richly cut glass brought forth keen bidding, and tumblers made up to £1 each.

The day's proceeds were £1,400, bringing the total realisation of the sale to £8,100.

Once more the sporting and ornithological interests of the late Sir Thomas Shipstone were reflected in the items in the catalogue, which included a number of hunting prints, and books such as "A Manual of Coaching", "The Birds of the British Isles" and specialised works on cage birds and poultry.

Persian Prayer Rug

The highest price of the day was £150 paid for a modern carved mahogany bedroom suite, although one or two other lots fetched quite large sums. For example, in the first hour of the sale a bidder paid £34 for the crimson carpet of the main staircase together with its oxidised silver stair rods. A Persian-style prayer rug was sold for £8 10s.

Sir Ernest Jardine purchased a set of eight bentwood chairs for £2, and the former registrar of University College, Nottingham, Mr. J.E. Shimeld, bought a mahogany dining-table.

Hunting Scenes

Four hunting scenes in colour fetched £12 10s., and a coloured engraving after J.F. Herring 36s. Two coloured prints after George Morland were sold with difficulty at £1 the pair.

Some more bronzes were included in the lots, and of these the best prices secured was £7 111s. for a model of a hunter and dog by R. Lenordez.

A French equestrian group by P.J. Mene was sold for £5, and a Florentine bronze figure of a girl for £4 15s.

£810 paid for a £630 car


The Sunbeam-Talbot motor car, belonging to the late Sir Thomas Shipstone, realised £810 at the auction conducted by Mr. Lionel Kirk, of Messrs. Place and Kirk, at Lenton Firs to-day.
The list price of the car, a 27-h.p. saloon, manufactured in 1939, which had been driven only 1,435 miles, was £630.

Bidding started at £500 and rose rapidly, the final purchaser being the Nottingham Car Mart, of Daybrook. The exceptionally high price realised is accounted for by the fact that new cars are not now manufactured in this country except for export, and this has caused the market for second-hand late model cars to rise appreciably. There were a number of motor dealers at the auction, but bidding was confined to four people.

The effects sold to-day included the furniture in the servants' quarters, and garden ornaments and outside property. A lead figure of Mercury on a marble pedestal in front of the house sold for £26, while two large dog kennels fetched £10 and £9 respectively.116

Noted Nottingham Artist

Death of Mr. Denholm Davis


Mr. N. Denholm Davis, a Nottingham artist, whose work includes the frescoes at Nottingham Council House, died last night at his home in Goring-on-Thames. He was in his 75th year.

To look through photographic records of the portraits which he has painted is like studying the history of Nottingham, for there are few famous men of modern times with local associations who have not earned the attention of this artist.
His collection includes the late Ald. Huntsman, General Booth, Captain Albert Ball V.C., Sir. Albert and Lady Ball, Sir Jesse Boot, Sir Arthur Blake, the Musters family, Thos. Birkin, Wm. Kidder, the Shipstone Family, Lady Readett-Bayley and children, the late Lord Savile's family and scenes including Goose Fair.

In addition, Mr. Davis was responsible for the reredos in Wollaton Church, a window in St, Mary's in memory of the Old Crimea and Indian Mutiny veterans, and and window in Edwalton Church of the late Col. W. Brewill.

Brighter Aviaries wanted in Nottingham Arboretum


When I looked around our Arboretum the other day, the sunshine was brilliant and the flowers were beautiful - but the aviaries were derelict. In fact, if it wasn't for the parrots left by Sir Thomas Shipstone there would be nothing to see.
From about 1890-1900 there was an aviary of squirrels to amuse the children, and from 1900-1939 there were beautiful birds, and coloured photos of them. Now there are a few common-coloured budgerigars, a few unfortunate sparrows, and empty show cases. When will the war be over?

(Mentioned) Newspaper1 June 1953 He was mentioned in a newspaper article on 1 June 1953. Over a Century of Good Brewing

When James Shipstone first opened his brewery to service the people of Nottingham, he was not embarking on a novel service.

Nottingham had for centuries enjoyed a reputation for brewing; its ancient rock-hewn caves had proved ideal for fermentation and storage and Nottingham ale was famous and popular.

The peculiar mineral properties of the local waters had created and maintained a certain quality in brewing which was the envy of other towns.

Into such an establishment craft came the young James Shipstone. He was a great man with great ideas, whose courage matched the adventurous streak in his nature.

He planned along ambitious lines and was a pioneer in the application of science in the development of industry.

"Pleasantly Reached"

In a Nottingham handbook of 1852, it is recorded thus: "Basford, two miles and a half North of Nottingham, may be pleasantly reached either on foot or by railway". Here, James Shipstone founded his brewery.

In 1880, his eldest son, another James, was taken into partnership and when another son, Thomas, came in four years later, the firm James Shipstone and sons was brought into being.

On the death of the founder in 1897, the second James became chairman and continued in that capacity until his death in 1940, when James Henry and Ronald Arthur Shipstone became joint managing directors. Ronald died four years later, and James Henry carried on until his retirement brought into office his son, the fourth James Shipstone.

The House of Shipstone is now in its second century of development, and the policy established by four generations which has proved eminently successful will be maintained.

The high standard of their products is as well know as their familiar star trade mark, and their magnificent horses.126 
(Mentioned) Newspaper1 April 1961 He was mentioned in a newspaper article on 1 April 1961. Sir Thomas Shipstone, Brother of Enoch Shipstone, deceased (who was the Father of Miss Dorothea Shipstone).127
 
Anecdote1969 The author (Annie Eliza Snell nee Shipstone) refers "never knew exactly how many children my Grandfather and Grandmother Shipstone had, nor in what order their ages were. I believe Uncle Jim was the oldest, although I understood that an older son, named John, became a missionary. Then my father came next according to age, followed by Uncle Enoch, and all were employed at Shipstone's brewery."128

The Shipstones Brewery

?, #2997
Resch Note1851 Research Note:
James Shipstone said to have founded the brewery in 1851 (according to Jan 1931 Nottingham Guardian Journal article).

If he did "found the brewery" (prior to the sale of the New Basford plot) it is not clear where.
"not proven" if founded in 1851.

James was described as a Porter living in Bulwell in November 1851.

Who bought the plot of land and houses in New Basford (for auction in 1852)?
There is no evidence that James had gathered "sufficient wealth" as a farm hand (1841) and a porter (1844 & 1851) to be able to purchase the land and dwelling houses... so perhaps he paid rent to a landlord in the early days until the business was established? Perhaps he clubbed together with his brothers, or other Nottm. businessmen (like Robert Halford) ...?

Note that James' sister Mary's husband was recorded as a brewer in 1851, a porter in 1861 and a retired publican in 1871. Mary died in late 1852.

Having lived in Bulwell since before 1849, in 1853, James has child Enoch in Basford, and is named as a brewer in 1854 and 1855.
In 1861 James & family are living near the (original) Horse & Groom pub on Radford Road.

Mr. Shipstone owned it, and proposed to erect there a building which would be a positive ornament to the town, and one well in keeping with the fine buildings which were springing up so rapidly in the old area. He asked for the licence for the convenience of the General Public, as well as to enable him to add to the beauties of the town. He did not ask for a licence to be granted where one did not exist already, but simply that they should grant him in place of the beerhouse licence which existed a full licence in order to carry on the business of a well regulated hotel. The plans had been laid before the Bench, and showed that in one portion of the premises he intended to carry on the business of his town office for the brewery and in the rest a really good hotel business. There would be bedrooms, a restaurant, and a coffee room, so that it would be a hotel capable of affording accommodation for commercial men. It was not a new licence but the extension of an existing one. The fact that a licence for the sale of beer and wine last year was granted to a neighbouring house, where suppers and dinners could be had, showed in the minds of the Bench last year there was evidently a feeling that there was a want of accommodation in that neighbourhood. He had no need to refer to Mr. Shipstone's reputation in the town. - There was no opposition.20

STAR BREWERY, NEW BASFORD
NOTTINGHAM

The extensive Brewing and Malting business of Messrs. James Shipstone and Sons was established in 1852, and was successfully carried on as a private firm until 1890. The present Company (in which nearly all the Shares are held by the former partners) was incorporated in 1891 for the purpose of taking over the business and assets of the firm, and has continued to carry on a profitable and increasing trade up to the present time.

The present issue for Debenture Stock is being made principally for the purposes of paying off existing Mortgages and charges upon the properties of the Company, and also in part to provide capital for further extension of the business by the purchase of additional properties and the establishment of new departments of trade.

The Stock will be secured by a Trust Deed constituting a First Mortgage to Trustees for the Holders, of the Brewery, Maltings and premises at Basford and Bulwell, and of 30 freehold and 4 copyhold licenced houses and other properties situate in Nottingham and the surrounding District, which have cost the Company over £117,000. The Company also holds upwards of 30 licenced houses on short lease, which form a valuable and important addition to the business of the Company.

All properties to be hereafter purchased by the Company will be conveyed to the Trustees and form part of the security for the Debenture Stock (subject to any mortgage or charge which the Company may create thereon).

The Debenture Stock will also be secured by a floating change upon all the assets and undertaking of the Company. On the 31st December, 1894, the date of the last balance sheet, the stock-in-trade, plant, and other assets of the Company amounted to £35,461 4s. 4d.

The nominal capital of the Company is £200,000, of which £91,360 has been issued in £60,000 five per cent. Preference Shares and £31,360 Ordinary Shares, all of which are fully paid up.

The average yearly earnings of the business for the past three years, after charging all expenses except interest on mortgages and loans, amount to £11,799. The amount required to pay the interest on the whole of the proposed Debenture Stock would be £3,600.

The Auditors' Certificate is as follows:

"10 South Parade, Nottingham"
4th April 1895.

"We have audited the books and accounts of Messrs. James Shipstone and Sons , Limited, from the formation of the Company to the 31st. December 1894.

"We certify that, after charging all expenses except interest on Mortgages and loans, and making ample allowance for depreciation and writing off bad debts, the profits of the three years ending December 31st 1894, haver been as follows:

(Year)     £     s.     d.
1892     10,634     4     1
1893     12,079     15     9
1894     12,684     18     11
Total:     £35,396     18     9

Giving a yearly average of
     £11,799     12     11

The Brewery, Maltings, freehold and copyhold licensed houses, and other real and leasehold properties comprised in the draft of the Debenture Stock Trust Deed have cost the Company over
     £117,000     0     0
The stock-in-trade, plant, and other debts stood, on 31st december 1894, at:
     £35,461     4     4


Making the total assets (exclusive of Goodwill)
     £152,461     4     4
HUBBART and DUROSE

"Chartered Accountants, Auditors"


It will be seen from the above Certificate that the present assets amount to £152,461. To this must be added the surplus of the present issue over existing charges available for further extension of the business (£10,000), making the total of £162,461, upon which the Stock will be secured.

The average annual profits as shown above represent more than three times the sum required to pay the interest on the Debenture Stock.

The profits since the formation of the Company have shown a steady increase, and the sales during 1894 were in excess of those of any of the preceding years.

Most of the Freehold and Copyhold Licensed Houses and Properties stand upon the books as at a valuation made in 1891. It is probable that a new estimate would show an increase of from 5 to 10 per cent.

A reserve account has been opened and already amounts to £6,000. It is intended to add to it yearly.

This Issue has not been underwritten.

The interest will be payable on the 1st day of May and the 1st day of November in each year. The first payment of interest will be made on the 1st day of November 1895, and will be calculated on each installment from the date of payment.

Applications for the Stock, on forms prescribed, accompanied by a remittance of £10 per cent., must be forwarded to the Company's Bankers.

If the whole amount applied for be not allotted the surplus amount paid on application will be applied towards the remaining installments, and in case so allotment is made the deposit will be re-turned forthwith.

The Article of Association of the Company and the proposed Trust Deed can be inspected at the office of the Solicitors of the Company.

Prospectuses and Forms of Application can be obtained at the offices of the Company, or from the Bankers or Solicitors.

James Shipstone & Sons Ltd.

The ordinary general meeting of the shareholders of this company was held in Nottingham on Wednesday, when Mr. R. Halford, J.P. (the chairman of the company) presided and there were also present the following directors: - Mr. James Shipstone, Mr. Thomas Shipstone, and Alderman J. P. Ford.

The chairman in his opening remarks, referred with deep regret, to the death of the former chairman of the company, Mr. James Shipstone, sen., which took place some months ago. The chairman then proceeded to say that he had great pleasure in laying before them the report for the year ending December 31st. 1897, showing results that were highly satisfactory, both as to the increase in the volume of business done, and in the results to shareholders in profits. He was pleased to be able to tell them that the total profits of the year amounted to £23,294 8s. 6d., with the balance brought forward from 1896 amounting to £741 15s. 10d., they had an available amount of £24,035 4s. 4d. to deal with. After payment of interest on new mortgages and loans and the interest on the first and second debentures, there was left an able balance for disposal of £17,119 0s. 10d. The directors recommended that this balance should be appropriated by payment of the usual dividend of 5 per cent. on the preference shares, a dividend of 10 per cent. on the ordinary shares, that £8000 should be carried to the reserve account, (making the reserve £20,000) and the sum of £2,983 0s. 10d. should be carried forwards to next year.
He might say that whilst pursuing a progressive policy in the management of the company's business, the directors were determined to conserve the interest of the shareholders by not paying a higher dividend than 10 per cent., although the results of the trading would have amply justified them doing so, and felt sure that the policy would fully commend itself to the shareholders. He might also add that ample allowance had been made for depreciation of machinery and rolling stock, and a liberal expenditure had incurred in repairing and keeping up the companies properties, and the shareholders might feel assured that their property and business was in a highly satisfactory condition.

- On the motion of the chairman, seconded by Ald. J.P. Ford, Messrs. Hubbart and Durose were re-elected auditors of the company. The meeting closed with the usual vote of thanks to the chairman.

James Shipstone & Sons Ltd.

The ordinary general meeting of the shareholders of this company was held at the registered office, Star Brewery, New Basford, yesterday. Mr. R. Halford, J.P., the chairman of the company, presided. There were also present Mr. James Shipstone, Mr. Thomas Shipstone, and Mr. Ald. Ford (directors), and others. Mr. Durose, auditor, also attended.

In moving the adoption of the report and accounts for the tear 1898, the chairman remarked that the trading of the past year had again considerably increased, and the net profit had grown in like proportion to the increased turnover. The total profits of the year amounted to £27,598 02. 10d., which, with the balance of £2,988 0s. 10d. brought forward from the previous year's accounts, gave an available balance of £30,576 1s. 8d. After payment of the interest on the interest on the debentures, and interest on new mortgages and loans there was a balance of £21,657 19s. 8d. for distribution. This very satisfactory result had been arrived at after making large allowances for depreciation of leaseholds, machinery, plant &c., and in addition to that a considerable amount had been expended during the year on permanent improvements which might fairly have been charged to the capital account. The usual dividend of 5 per cent. per annum on the preference shares has already been paid, and the director's recommended a dividend of 10 per cent. should be paid on the ordinary shares, that £10000 should be added to the reserve account, and that the balance of £5,521 19s. 8d. should be carried forward.

With respect to the dividend of 10 per cent. proposed to be declared on the ordinary shares, he would observe that the shareholders might think that with so large a net balance available, an increased dividend might have been paid; but he (the Chairman) strongly recommended them to adopt the policy of adding to their reserve account for some time to come. The money so reserved was used in extending the company's business, and whilst strengthening the position of the debenture and preference shareholders of the company, it would also materially add to the future profits. As evidence of this very sound basis upon which the company's business was conducted, he would inform the shareholders that in the whole of their licensed houses they had not, nor had they had for a long time past, any house under management or in which they were interested otherwise than in the ordinary relationship of landlord or tenant, in other words, every tenant had his own capital invested in his business. A further satisfactory and, he might perhaps say, exceptional feature was that the total amount of money advanced to tenants, or in fixtures and fittings belonging to tenant right, was only a trifle over £8,000. The bad debts for the past year had amounted to only £160. He thought with these facts and figures they might fairly challenge comparison with any similar business in the country

An important step has been taken during the year in the purchase of the Carrington Brewery Company, which was taken over on the 31st December last. The directors had every reason to be satisfied with that purchase. The trading of the Carrington business as distinguished from Shipstone and Sons had, no doubt, owing to the superior article we were able to produce already considerably increased, and with the economy that would be effected by the amalgamation of the two breweries the shareholders might confidently look forward to a large increase in the future profits.

Before formally submitting the resolution he (the Chairman) felt that it was only due to Messrs. james and Thomas Shipstone that he should refer to the obligation the shareholders were under to them for the great zeal and ability they had each brought to bear upon the business of the3 company due in the past year, and he also desired to acknowledge the services of all members of th staff and all the workmen generally connected with the company. He had much pleasure in moving the adoption of the report.

The motion was seconded by Ald. J.P. Ford, and was carried nem. con.


The retiring director, Ald. Ford, was re-elected, as also were Messrs. Hubbart and Durose, the retiring auditors.

The proceedings terminated with a vote of thanks to the chairman for presiding.30

The Company was incorporated in 1891 for the purpose of taking over the business and assets of the firm
James Shipstone and Sons, established in 1852, and has continued to carry on a profitable and increasing trade up to the present time.

The Company has now purchased (as from the 31st December 1898) the old-established business of the Carrington Brewery Company, with the whole of their Freehold, Copyhold and Leasehold Properties, and the trade assets; also a number of other valuable Licensed Properties, part of which are at present under lease (from the former owner) to another Brewery in the neighbourhood.

The net proceeds of the present issue of £350,000 Stock will be applied in redeeming and paying off all the existing Mortgages, Debentures, and Loans of the Company, in completing the purchase of the Properties above referred to, and in carrying out certain extensions which have become necessary owing to the great increase in the business of the Company.

The properties owned by the Company comprise the following: -

     (a) The Freehold Breweries, known as the "Star" Brewery, New Basford, Nottingham, and the Carrington Brewery, Carrington, with the Fixed Plant, Stores, Stables, Offices etc.
     (b) 142 Freehold and Copyhold Licensed Hotels, Public Houses, Beerhouses, and Off-Licensed Shops.
     (c) 112 Leasehold Licensed Hotels, Public Houses, Beerhouses, and Off-Licensed Shops.
     (d) 306 Freehold, Copyhold and Leasehold Dwelling-houses, Cottages, Shops, Maltrooms, Warehouses etc., with various Plots of Land held in connection therewith.

Messrs. Morris and Place, of Nottingham, have made a valuation of the Properties, and a copy of their valuation is appended. From this it will be seen that the value of the Freehold, leasehold and Copyhold Properties amounts to :     £531,478 0 0

To this should be added: -

Rolling Stock, Horses, Loose Plant, Casks, Drays, Book Debts, and Stock-in-Trade, as certified by Messrs. Hubbart and Durose, the auditors of the Company:      £57,132 0 0
Additional working capital provided by this issue, say      £70,000 0 0

Nottingham Bankruptcy Court
To-day (before the Registrar (Mr. R. H. Speed).

A Publican and her Landlords

Hannah Slater, of 69, Dane-street, lately of the Dog and Gun Inn, Trinity-street, came up for her public examination. - The debtors statement of accounts disclosed gross liabilities of £170 18s. 4d., all of which with the exception of £20 is expected to rank for dividend, with assets of £75 12s. 9d., leaving a deficiency of £74 5s. 7d. - In answer to the Official Receiver, the debtor stated that she resided at 69 Dane-street and lately carried on business at the Dog and Gun Inn Trinity-street. She had stated her liabilities at £150 15s. 4d., and her assets at £76 12s 9d. Her husband was previously landlord of the public house, and she succeeded him at his death in June 1893. The Carrington Brewery Company Limited, were landlords at that time, and her husband died insolvent, and in the meantime she had paid a considerable amount of her husband's debts on her own account, the whole of which where not paid off. She considered that if she had a fair valuation she would have been able to clear off her debts. She was accepted as tenant by Messrs. Shipstone and Sons, Limited, when they took over the public house, and received notice to quit, which would have expired next September. She then owed half a year's rent, and the landlords told her that if she did not pay the money they should send in the bailiffs. A valuation was made prior to her leaving the house, Mr. Warwick acting for her, and Mr. Frank Johnson for the company. Nothing was said to her personally as to whether the valuation was made between herself and James Shipstone, or between herself and the incoming tenant, and she only knew who the incoming tenant was the day before she left. Neither was she told that James Shipstone and Sons were going to buy the public-house and the stock and fixtures; nor did she know that the valuation money was actually paid to the company. She endorsed the licence, and signed four papers at the company's office, but they were not read to her, and she did not know the content of them. She did not at any time consent to Shipstone and Sons taking the entire valuation, and when she heard that they were proposing to stop not merely the rent, but also their beer account, she said "But what about Mr. Warwick?" Mr. Shipstone replied that they would see him all right, and then she asked "How about Mr. Ford?" adding that he had been a very good friend to her, and Mr. Shipstone said in answer to her that he was connected with the same firm, and they would see him all right. She told the firm that she could not owe them £70 for beer; it was £20. - Asked by the Official Receiver why she allowed the company to stop £75, she said that they did about as much as they liked with her, and she was in "such a way" about it. When she was told the day after the valuation that it only amounted to less than £100 she was nearly heart broken.

The Official receiver produced a receipt for £75 1s. given to the bankrupt after the valuation for monies which had been received on account of stock &c., out of the valuation, and debtor stated that such an account was not due from her for beer. All that she remembered owing was £20, but Mr. Shipstone told her that including the rates and everything that was due from her the money from the valuation would just about meet the bills. She admitted that she has kept no account herself of what she owed for beer, and the Official Receiver thereupon stated that he must have all the bills in her possession. Mr. Shipstone told her she owed £20 for beer, and she could not explain why it was that she allowed him to stop £75. At that time she did not know what the valuation had come to, but learned in the morning following that on which she left the Dog and Gun. She was certain that she told Mr. Thomas Shipstone that she had other creditors besides his firm, and he replied that he would see to it. When Mr. Shipstone gave her the £5 she had not a shilling in her pocket. He said he was sorry for her, and would give her the £5 out of his own pocket, replying that it was simply a gift. That was the only sum she had in respect of the valuation she believed was £90 12s. 3d., and after paying rent &c., the balance due from them was £60 15s. 3d., but all that was stopped by Messrs. Shipstone, with the exception of the £5. - The examination was closed.34

For the year ending December 31st, 1899, to be presented to the Ordinary Shareholders at the Annual Meeting on May 3rd, 1900 :-

The Directors have pleasure in presenting their Report on the Company's Trading for the year ending December 31st, 1899.

In the early part of 1899 an issue of Preference Shares amounting to £120,000 was made, and in June the 4 per cent Irredeemable Debenture Stock of the Company, amounting to £350,000, was also issued.

There has been disposed of by way of Interest on Debentures, Dividend on Preference Shares etc. as shown by
the Profit and Loss Account the sum of: £22,875 18 2

And the Directors recommend the appropriation of the balance as follows:

Dividend at 7 1/2 per cent per annum on the Ordinary Shares £109,760 (free of tax) 8,232 0 0

Balance Sheet, 31st December 1899

(detail of profit and loss, inc assets, depreciation etc.)

...


We have examined the Accounts of Messrs. James Shipstone and Sons Limited, for the year ending December 31st 1899, and certify that the above Balance Sheet is in accordance therewith, and in our opinion fully reveals the position of the Company on the date named. The Stocks-in-Trade have been certified by the various Departmental Managers.

Dated this 19th day of April 1900
HUBBART and DUROSE,
Chartered Accountants, Auditors, 10 South Parade, Nottingham

Mr. Robert Halford, the chairman of directors, expressed the pleasure it gave him to meet the shareholders with the statements of accounts, which he considered was of a very satisfactory nature. The year had been an eventful one in the history of the company. They took over the business of the Carrington Brewery Company on
January 1st, 1899; and, as he ventured to predict in speaking of the purchase of that business a year ago, the result of the trading had been altogether satisfactory. They had thus far kept the accounts relating to the Carrington Brewery Company's business entirely distinct from the Basford business.
This for two reasons: The actual business was still being carried on from the Carrington Brewery until such time as they would be in a position, with their new brewery at Basford, to consolidate the whole of the business there; the other reason was that they thought it desirable to know exactly what the result of their purchase had been, so that they might see how far it had proved satisfactory, or otherwise, and he was therefore able to state that the final audit of the accounts for the year showed the purchase of the business was a wise one and that it had already proved a source of additional profit to the company, though they were by no means reaping the full increase that would be derived when the whole of the company's business had been centralised in regard to manufacture at the Basford brewery. With exactly the same number of houses at the time they were purchased, the actual output of those houses was considerably larger than was the case under its former management, and moreover during the present year up to April 30th, 1900, as compared with the first four months of 1899, the output has been considerably in advance of that of the previous year.

The new brewery at Basford, as they were aware, was in progress, and although they could not hope to see it completed by the end of the present financial year, they hoped that in the following year, an any rate, they would have such building and equipment that they would be able to transfer to the whole of the brewing operations to Basford, and hence there would be a considerable economy, which must affect the results in the direction of profits. They had, as the report showed, issued additional Preference shares to the value of £120,000, and had also carried through the issue of 4 per cent. Debenture stock to the amount of £350,000, and also redeemed the old Debenture stock with the exception of an amount of £23,900, which the present holders are retaining, and which will be paid off at the maturity in July, 1905. In th meantime, that amount, in accordance with the terms of recent issue, had been invested in the names of the trustees for the Debenture holders on terms very satisfactory to the company and the trustees.

He (the chairman) had now reached what was usually considered the most important part of the business, the result of the year's trading, and they would see from the report that the net profits of the company for the year amounted to £41,215 4s. 6d.
That amount is arrived at, as stated in the report, after very full allowance made for depreciation of leaseholds and plant, rolling-stock, &c., and full allowance of made for any possible bad debts. He thought it would be very satisfactory to hear that, on the Basford business, the bad debts for the whole of the year did not exceed £120. They had had to write off a sum of something exceeding £300 in respect of bad debts in connection with the carrington business, but the whole of that amount was in respect of debts owing before the company took over the business; and he ventured to say he did not anticipate the total bad debts for the present year would amount to £100, and they could not have stronger evidence of the sound character of the business than is afforded by this fact. It also affords very strong evidence of the very great care and attention that must be given to the business by Mr. Thomas Shipstone and those associated with him in that part of the business.

They had now to deal with a net profit of £41,215 4s. 6d. and also the balance of £5,521 19s. 8d. brought forward from last year, and available profit of £46,737 4s. 2d. They had already paid out of that sum in director's and trustees' fees, interest on Debenture stock, dividend on Preference shares, &c., a sum amounting to £22,875 18s. 2d., and now proposed the appropriation of the balance as follows: - To pay a dividend on the Ordinary shares at the rate of 7 1/2 per cent. (free of tax) £8,232, to carry to reserve account £7,500 (making a total of £37,500 to credit of reserve account), to write off the suspense account £7,000, and to carry forward to next year the balance of £1,129 6s.

With regard to the assets shown in the balance sheet, the goodwill on both businesses stands at £36,812 9s. 11d. Against that there is the credit of the reserve account, £37,500, so that practically the whole of the assets, as set forth on the credit side of the balance sheet, represent existing values, and they represent valuations that would realise amounts very greatly in excess of the sums at which they stood in the balance sheet.

The directors will make it their policy in future to strengthen the business in every possible way by setting aside, from time to time out of the profits of the business, substantial amounts to the reserve account, so that, to a very large extent, the future extension may be made out of funds actually existing within the company.

They deem that the right, safe, and sound policy to pursue, and we think they, the shareholders, will support us in carrying out that policy. He had much pleasure in moving the adoption of the report - Mr. Ford seconded the adoption of the report.
It seemed to him that everyone connected with the company would be satisfied with the balance sheet produced that day. He believed that next year an even better one would be produced.

Mr. James Shipstone supported the resolution, and said that the work done was extremely satisfactory. It was very satisfactory to those who worked on the business to know that their efforts had been successful and appreciated by the directors and shareholders. The trade results verified the old adage that "Union is strength", and the strength of the company lies in prosperity.

The Chairman stated that the Stock Exchange had granted a quotation for the Debenture Stock.

Mr. Halford was re-elected chairman of the company, on the motion of Mr. James Shipstone, seconded by Mr. Thomas Shipstone.

Messrs. Hubbart and Durose were re-elected auditors of the company, on the motion of Mr. Halford, seconded by Mr. Thomas Shipstone.

A vote of thanks to the chairman, proposed by Mr. Ford, and seconded by Mr. Durose, to which Mr. Halford suitably replied, closed the meeting.36

Serious Street Accident

A little before 5 o'clock on Tuesday evening a Brewer's dray belonging to Messrs. J. Shipstone & Sons, Limited, was standing near the General Havelock Inn, Regent Street, Ilkeston, laden with empty barrels. During the temporary absence of the driver, the pair of horses attached to the dray suddenly took fright, and dashed off down Nottingham Road, at a terrific rate. After going half a mile, the dray came in contact with a cart standing near the White Cow. The trap was smashed to matchwood, and a woman and her daughter named Burton, who came from Long Eaton, were pitched violently to the ground. The mother escaped with severe bruising, but the daughter, who is 14 years of age, was not so fortunate, her right leg being broke below the knee. The collision caused one of the brewery horses to fall, which brought the dray to a standstill. Superintendent Daybell, with his trap, was close at hand, and referred valuable assistance. Miss Burton being subsequently taken to the Ilkeston Hospital, where the broken limb was set by Dr. Paton.37

Thirsty Draymen Tap the Barrel

A Nottingham Prosecution


Three brewery draymen, named William Russell, Alfred Dudley and Henry Tye, all of Basford, were charged at the Shire Hall, Nottingham to-day, with stealing four quarts of beer belonging to Messrs.. James Shipstone and Sons.

Mr. J. A. H. Green, in prosecuting, said that there was amongst some of the draymen a practice of spiking the barrels and helping themselves to the beer. Usually in was done in the country lanes, the draymen collaborating in the theft. After the cask was opened and the beer drawn off the hole was plugged and covered with dirt, a keen scrutiny being necessary to discover that the cask had been tampered with. The firm had suspected of late that thefts of this kind were going on, and a watch was kept on July 23rd in the village of Bilborough, where the defendants were caught helping themselves in this manner. Messrs. Shipstone had obtained convictions in similar cases before, and a notice setting forth the fact was posted in the stables. Also the defendants were breaking strict rules in going through Bilborough. Mr. Green added that he was instructed to press the case against these men and to ask the Bench to make an example of them.

James Holt, the manager of Messrs. Shipstone's forwarding department, said the barrel sent out in Russell's charge contained 54 gallows, but when subsequently examined it contained a gallon less. The beer had been tampered with.

P.C. Lowings stated that he and P.C. Anderson hid behind a hedge at Bilborough and saw Russell bore a hole in one of the barrels with a gimlet. He filled two quart bottles from it, and Tye and dudley each filled another bottle. Russell and Tye put their bottles in the bags beneath the drays, and Dudley threw his into the grass. The gimlet holes in the barrel were plugged.

All three men pleaded guilty and appeared contrite. Russell pleaded as a reason for lenience a wife and nine children, and Tye a wife and 9 children. None of them had been summoned before.

Russel: Don't you think it would be better if the men were allowed a quart of beer when they are going such long distances?
Mr. Green reminded him that they get 6d. or 9d. for beer money, according to the distance they have to go.

Each of the co-defendants were fined £40s., or 40 days.48

Extract from a letter written by a Signalman in the 7th Leicester Regiment (E Company) now in France: -

"..... I found it in our Quartermaster's Stores. My word it was nice to have an English drink (Shipstone's Iron Brew). I was thinking of having a transport to bring it up, but on second thoughts I hit on the idea of carrying it myself ..... I could have sold the lot as I stood for half a sovereign ..... they nearly went "scranny" when they saw "Shipstone's Iron Brew." Well any way I shall last a little longer now (Good Health!)."

BREWERY COMBINE

Nothing Known of the Move in Nottingham

The Effects of Raised prices

A gentleman prominently and actively identified with the brewing industry in Nottingham told the Post representative to-day that nothing has yet been heard, locally, of any Government action in the direction of amalgamation of the local breweries on the line of the experiment in Sheffield (see next article, below). The joint body of brewers, which is responsible for the trade in the city, has not up to the present, at all events, been in any way approached on the subject, and time alone can show whether the proposal, which is the subject of discussion at Sheffield, is intended to be applied generally.

At the other end of the scale, license holders in Nottingham and district find themselves very heavily hit by the recent inflation of prices , especially as regards the supply of beer.

...


GOVERNMENT EXPERIMENT AT SHEFFIELD

Twenty Firms Affected


Drastic action is foreshadowed by a Government experiment which is to be put into operation in Sheffield. The twenty brewing companies in the city, with a capital totalling about £2,000,000, have received a strongly worded intimation fro the Government that, unless they voluntarily amalgamate within a given time, compulsory measures will be taken to enforce this in the interest of labour and financial economy. The breweries are not today working to full capacity, and the Government contend concentrated production will release many men from a non-essential trade for the army as well as National Service, and will also be a financial saving.

The brewers have jointly discussed the proposals and agreed in principle to seventeen of them closing down.

...

This is a war measure, and if successful in economising labour, power, and capital will become general throughout the country. Brewers are opposed to it, but stated yesterday that the Government are adamant.56

Messrs. Shipstone and Sons

Local Brewery Income Tax appeal fails.

Assessments Respecting Beeston Company


Mr. Justice Rowlatt, in the King's Bench Division to-day, had before him an income tax appeal brought by Messrs. James Shipstone and Sons Limited, brewers of Nottingham, in respect of assessments made upon them for the years ending April, 1924, and April, 1925, in sums of £8,589 and £5,350 respectively.

These assessments, it was stated, were additional assessments made upon the company on the ground that they had succeeded to the business of the Beeston Brewery Co. Ltd. Messrs. Shipstone disputed this contention.

The dispute turned upon an agreement made between Messrs. Shipstone and the Beeston Co., whereby Messrs. Shipstone took over the brewery and "tied" houses of the Beeston Co. for three years, from July, 1922. The Crown contended that the arrangement made between the two companies constituted a succession of the Beeston Brewery Company's business by the appellant company, which justified the making of the assessments in question.

The Income Tax Commissioners for the Nottingham division had held that the leasing of the brewery, and the licensed properties, together with the acquisition by Messrs. Shipstone of a controlling interest in the Beeston Brewery Company constituted a succession of business, and they confirmed the arrangements. From that decision Messrs. Shipstone appealed to his Lordship.

Mr. A.M. Latter, for the appellant company, said they had never used the Beeston Brewery premises for brewing. They had i fact closed the place down as a brewery. Messrs. Shipstone had not taken over the debts and liabilities of the Beeston company, nor had there been any transference of staff.

Mr. R.P. Hills, for the Crown, submitted that Messrs. Shipstone, in taking over the licensed houses, took over from the Beeston Brewery Company the only custom that mattered, and that fact very strongly supported the Commissioners findings that there was succession.

Mr. Justice Rowlatt dismissed the appeal with costs. The trade of brewers, he said, was not the holding of tied houses - but the selling of beer to the tied houses - that was to sell the beer through the tied houses as salesmen. That was the backbone of the business. The Commissioners seemed to have taken the view that, inasmuch as Messrs. Shipstone gathered into their hands these channels of sale, they had succeeded to the business of the Beeston Company in its substance and backbone.
It seemed to him that that was well within the ambit of the question of fact. That made the Shipstone Co. successors unless the continuance of the old Beeston Brewery could be held to be essential to a succession. The point was a very nice one, but he did not think the continuance of the brewery was a legal essential.

Messrs. Shipstone apparently did not want anything to do with Beeston beer; perhaps they did not believe in it, and thought that the Shipstone beer was very much better. The trade was not the selling of any particular beer, but simply the selling of beer. There was the trade - the consumption of beer at the licensed houses, and the Shipstone Co. thought doubtless that they would get the benefit of such consumption.

In the circumstances, he did not think he could set aside the findings of the Commissioners on what was essentially a question of fact.69

Nottm Hotel changes hands


- Price not disclosed

One of Nottingham's leading hotels - The County in Theatre Square - has changed hands for the second time in just over five years. The owner, Mr. Frank Percy Johnson, hotel and brewer valuer, has sold the property to J. Shipstone and Sons, and they took over today.

Mr. Johnson's father had one great ambition in life to be the owner of the County Hotel. That did not happen, but during the war when the property came on the market, a member of the family bought it.

Since then many improvements have been made both internally and externally. The price has not been disclosed.

Over a Century of Good Brewing

When James Shipstone first opened his brewery to service the people of Nottingham, he was not embarking on a novel service.

Nottingham had for centuries enjoyed a reputation for brewing; its ancient rock-hewn caves had proved ideal for fermentation and storage and Nottingham ale was famous and popular.

The peculiar mineral properties of the local waters had created and maintained a certain quality in brewing which was the envy of other towns.

Into such an establishment craft came the young James Shipstone. He was a great man with great ideas, whose courage matched the adventurous streak in his nature.

He planned along ambitious lines and was a pioneer in the application of science in the development of industry.

"Pleasantly Reached"

In a Nottingham handbook of 1852, it is recorded thus: "Basford, two miles and a half North of Nottingham, may be pleasantly reached either on foot or by railway". Here, James Shipstone founded his brewery.

In 1880, his eldest son, another James, was taken into partnership and when another son, Thomas, came in four years later, the firm James Shipstone and sons was brought into being.

On the death of the founder in 1897, the second James became chairman and continued in that capacity until his death in 1940, when James Henry and Ronald Arthur Shipstone became joint managing directors. Ronald died four years later, and James Henry carried on until his retirement brought into office his son, the fourth James Shipstone.

The House of Shipstone is now in its second century of development, and the policy established by four generations which has proved eminently successful will be maintained.

The high standard of their products is as well know as their familiar star trade mark, and their magnificent horses.92

My notes - this was seen as a £20m "merger", rather than the hostile £13m takeover which Northern Foods tried and failed to acheive the previous month. The fact a second deal happened so swiftly means that the Shipstone board were probably looking for a sale - but at the right price.103

There's an intriguing story doing the rounds that two of the biggest independents outside of the Big Six are thinking of merging. Lancashire-based Greenall Whitley is said to have made overtures to Wolverhaption and Dudley breweries, a rumour reflected in the latter's share prices, which at 210p has been hitting new heights recently.

...

Greenall's, although stronger in Lancashire, does overlap the West Midlands through its Shrewbury and Wem Brewery offshoot, and it extended into the East Midlands via its James Shipstone brewery in Nottingham.

How Greenall hedged their bets on beer

To-day Greenall acquired Arrowsmiths. Echo Business Editor Keith Ely looks at how the brewery has diversified.

The acquisition of Arrowsmiths puts a smile back into Greenall Whitley land just a week after the Warrington company's chief Christopher Hatton warned of a slump in beer sales. But he told shareholders at the annual meeting "We are looking into a number of areas for diversification ... since we strongly believe there is a case for hedging our bets in this way to cope with changing consumer habits."

Like most of the big brewers, Greenall Whitley has been hit by the effects of recession and budget increases on its beer sales, but unlike some, it has been spending a lot of money on buying businesses outside its traditional areas of activity.

On top of those famous Vladivar vodka, Grunhalle lager and other beers, wines and spirits - the company has begun to build an empire which now includes the holiday tour interests, a chain of bingo halls and a golf complex.

Its profits have hit record levels in every one of the past 10 years, though Mr. Hatton warned shareholders last week that with current problems, it would be difficult to maintain this trend in the current year.

Last year, the firm earned pre-tax profits of £21,000,000 on sales of nearly £195,000,000. It has steadily increased its workforce throughout the country and now employs close on 4,000 people.

Its subsidiaries include Gilbert and John Greenall, Cambrian Soft Drinks, James Shipstone, Wrekin Brewery, Magee Marshall, Groves & Whitnall, G.W. Hotels, and the Stanneylands Group.

In October last year, it paid an undisclosed sum for the Belfry Hotel and golf complex at Wishaw, Sutton Coldfield and has since announced plans for further major investment there. Earlier, under joint ownership with travel company Ellerman, Greenall Whitley has been the moving force in the development of the two course complex.

Realising the full potential of the development, it brought Ellerman out and then less than one month later, through Stanneylands, it bought six bingo halls from the troubled playboy Club.

The price again was undisclosed, but is believed to have been rather less than £1,000,000.

Greenalls had acquired Stanneylands in 1977. At that time, the firm comprised three bingo halls and a cinema in Manchester. The takeovers from Playboy have put together a moderately sized bingo operation which Greenall is likely to extend again when the opportunity arises.

The move underline the emphasis the Cheshire and Merseyside group is placing on seeking other profit sources whilst brewing industry is in the doldrums.

Even within its pubs, it is stepping up its catering facilities as customers tastes move from beer to food.

However, despite these changes and today's acquisition, the company will be anxious to stress that brewing and distilling remains far and away its prime business, and will do so for some long time to come.112
