Post Civil courts



The mention of Skeffington Lutwidge set me searching in the TDA for the surname. I came across the following with a mention of another Lutwidge. Was this Henry? Susan has one listed on the main site.




The Times, March 16th, 1802:

" .... The Assizes for Hants, held at Winchester, ended on Saturday .... Lieut Howett, of the Navy, was found guilty of defrauding Government to a large amount, in the purchase of provisions. Lieut. Lutwidge was found guilty of Manslaughter, in killing Thomas Fagan, a seaman. . ...."



If anyone is interested there are more details of Lutwidge's hearing in another entry. As usual, if anyone wants to read it, I will gladly forward it on to anyone who does not have TDA access.

Mil!

The Lieut Henry Thomas Lutwidge to whom you refer, was found guilt of accidentally killing the seaman and spent 3 months in Winchester gaol. He later spent ten years, 1804-14, as a French prisoner of war. He was Skeffington L's nephew.

A luckier relation was Charles Lutwidge Dodgson (Lewis Carroll), the grandson of another of Skeffington's nephews.

Thanks for your response, Brian; much appreciated!

Thanks, also, for the snippet about Lewis Carroll. It reminds me of holidays in Llanddudno in my youth. :)
