101 "George inherited the Clockhouse estates (which by this time consisted of some 140 farms and tenements in Bradford, Idle, Manningham, Horton, Bingley, Hipperholme, Keighley, Giggleswick, North and South Cave and elsewhere, with an annual income of ~?8,000) from his cousin Sarah Jowett on her death in 1840.
However, he did not live in the Clockhouse, preferring his own home in Drewton, East Riding. He died without issue, at Drewton, in 1854 and left a somewhat complicated and ambiguous will. He was not aware of any living relatives but was vaguely aware that his great grandfather Nathan Jowett, brother of the original Samuel Jowett, also had a sister who married an Atkinson and had two Children, who he found out to have been Nathan and Samuel Atkinson. He therefore left the estate to the heir male of Nathan Atkinson, whose mother was "a Jowett of Clockhouse". Failing this, it would go to the heir male of Samuel Atkinson of Shipley, brother of the above Nathan. Failing this he left it to the heir male of his uncle Nathan Jowett (just in case there was one!). In this way the estate finally found its way to Nathan Atkinson, grandson of Nathan Atkinson of Bolton near Bradford (after much activity by the lawyers!)". 
Baron, George of Leeds (I8063)
102 "George Thompson had become the Registrar of Deeds for the East Riding, a position occupied in the early 19th century by an ancestor of his wife. Bertha, aged 14, was living at home and was identified as a scholar in the 1891 census return. She was probably being taught at home by a Governess, Lucy Hilda Brooksbank. However, Lucy's status in the household is recorded as "visitor" which may mean she was not actually working in the house. The family was still in Register Square in 1901, but Bertha was not." Brooksbank, Lucy Hilda (I917)

As the tannery business was thriving, in 1739 he built a house at Great Horton which is now known as the "King's Arms" inn, - it was a coaching-inn where the High Flyer from Leeds to Manchester and the Cotton Coach refreshed their horses and passengers. Over the door is the date 1739 and the initials "G-B." Continuing to prosper, in 1746 Gilbert erected the fine gentleman's residence called "Brooksbank House", an imposing building which fell into disrepair in later years."

112 "he knew more or less intimately nearly every man, and woman too, that was worth knowing in England; and having a thoroughly English wife, I believe he loved our society, in spite of its chilliness and drawbacks, better than that of any other nation....
Within a year from the date of this conversation, which took place as we were riding side by side over the downs which lie between Brighton and Lewes, and which was, I think, the last of many of the sort, I drove down from the neighbourhood of London to follow my friend to his grave in Hove churchyard.
Some of the exiles gave out that he was killed by our climate. Nonsense! He died of a chronic and hereditary complaint which would have killed him in Milan quite as soon as at Brighton, and perhaps sooner...."

Tasman House and Cyril Blacket
Cyril Blacket (1857-1937) was a prominent landowner in St Georges Basin. He was the son of Edmund Blacket, the well known Colonial Architect who, between his arrival from England in 1842 and his death in 1883, designed over 200 buildings, mostly in NSW. Cyril Blacket was also an architect, although not so well known as his father. But he was also responsible for many buildings in Sydney and other parts of NSW. Locally he was the architect for the School of Arts and the Memorial Gates in Nowra. During a short visit (1879/80) to the UK he was awarded a degree by the Royal Institute of British Architects. In 1903 he was President of the Institute of Architects. He was a councillor and president of the now-defunct Shire of Clyde. In 1885 Cyril acquired an estate bordering the NW corner of the Basin. This he called Tasman Park with the house being known as Tasman House. The family lived there but Cyril had to spend a lot of time in his office in Sydney. The estate was initially 640 acres but later was increased to about 1000. The house was a large one, 10 bedrooms,and built from local timber. The house was burnt down in 1926 and was not rebuilt.

rounded up by the authorities. A fellow internee later reported that Halsbury had been the
saddest man in the whole camp and just used to stand by himself all day, unspeaking, gazing
out at the horizon. When his health started to fail he was shifted to a hospital in the Vosges,
the part of France that he had loved best and where he was quartered in the days of World
