MR ABRAHAM FOULKES, ABERGELE. Mr Abraham Foulkevs, of Tanygoppa, Aber- gele, died on Sunday at Llanduano. Mr Foulkes, who was in his 81th year, was for about 20 years agent to Lord Mostyn at Llan- dudno, and was succeeded in that appointment by his nephew, Mr G. A. Humphreys, the present agent. A large share of the modern development of Llandudno was due to Mr Foulkes, who relinquished the agency in order to take up the office of estate agent to tho late Mr Hughes, of Kinmel. He moved Home years ago to Hendr-cgyda, Aber- gele, where he lived until hid retirement some three years ago. While at Abergele he re- presented the district for many years on the Denbigh County Council, and also served on the St. Asaph Board of Guardians. From the beginning of its history he took a considerable interest in the Abergele County School, of which he was one of tho governors. Nobody evinced a greater interest in the welfare of the school than he. When it was being substantially enlarged some years ago he took the liveliest interest in ensuring its equipment on tho most modern lines. His architectural and engineering edu- cation counted for much with tho result that when the enlargement and renovation of tho school was completed it was declared to be the best built school of its kind throughout Wales. As chairman of the Abergele Parish Coun- cil particularly and as chairman of the Foot- paths Preservation Committee he did much work which was fruitful of the very best re- sults. It was through his good offices that the rights of way UpOIl the Piasueha Estate, now tho property of the Manchester Corpora- tion, w-ere established, it was he who set out under Governnn'ent awards moot of the Crown lands in North Wales. He also planned the famous drive round the Great Orme, Llandudno, a no small feat of engineering skill. A largo percentage of his time he devoted, unostentatiously but xi-sefully, to public work of various k/nds. For many years ho was a member of the Court of the University Col- lego of North Wales, Bangor. His wife died some years a.go, but he is survived by a daughter, who remained at home with him, and by his son, Mr I). ILedworth Foulkes, who is the -principal of the Harper-Adams Agricultural College, Salop, which is now associated with the Agricultural Department of the University of Birmingham. The funeral was held at St. George's, Aber- gelej on Wednesday afternoon, and the large and representative gathering testified to the deceased's widespread and well-car nod popu larity. The Hector officiated.
