OBITUARY. We regret to have to announce the death of Mr. John Durnford, which took place yesterday at his residence, 66, Hauteville, at the mature age of 82 years. The deceased was a son of the late Lieut.-General E. W. Durnford, R E., and entered the service in the Military Store Department, being appointed Honorary Deputy Superintendent in April, 1861. He served in Canada, and held other appointments in the Tower of London and at Chester. For the last ten years he made Guernsey his place of residence, where he endeared himself to all classes by his amiability of temper and kindness of heart. The deceased was particularly charitable to the poor, who, in him will miss a kind friend, but his charity was of that unostentatious kind to be found and admired in all true philanthropists. Any obituary of Mr. Durnford would be incomplete which does not mention that for upwards of seven years he filled the office of churchwarden of Trinity Church. To the discharge of its duties he gave all his best efforts and energies. He took the greatest interest in everything connected with the church and parish, and through his instrumentality, mainly, the new schools belonging to the parish were erected. He was a most liberal supporter of them, and a most efficient helper in every way possible. The deceased leaves one son, Mr. Charles D. Durnford, who was stationed here some years ago, in connection with the Ordnance Store Department, as Deputy Assistant Superintendent of Stores, and also other near relatives to mourn his loss. The Star, 9 April 1891.
