At his residence, Sextenton, near Lostwithiel, on Monday, the 29th ult., of consumption, William Lyttleton, Esq., in his 61st year. He was a man highly respected by a large body of friends, particularly the yeomanry of the neighbourhood in which he lived. His free, condescending, and affable disposition caused his company to be sought after by all to whom he was known, who were always delighted with his pleasing conversation and interesting anecdotes. His knowledge of local customs caused him to be consulted on most differences of opinion which happened to arise in the family or domestic circle, and to which he applied his excellent talent and sound judgment without the least reserve. He was a good master, a kind husband, and an affectionate father. In him the poor have lost a friend, the widow a protector, and the orphan a true and valued guardian; and although he is gone to "that bourne from which no traveler e'er returned" he will live in remembrance and affections of an extensive circle of friends as but few men were honoured within life, or regretted by in death. The writer of this had the honor of his acquaintance from youth up, and in connexion with many others, shared his friendship and profited by hisconversation and fatherly advice. Although his loss will be severely felt, there is consolation in the midst of grief which will tend to soothe the mind, that of having followed a good man to his grave, whose life was exemplary; and whose death was triumphant.
