COMING OF AGE OF Mr. E. W. WILLIAMS WVNN.- The rejoicings arranged for Monday, June 3rd, to cele- brate the coming-of-age of Mr. E. W. Williams Wynn, of Cefn, St. Asaph, have been postponed in consequence of the death of Lady Williams, widow of Sir Hugh Williams, of Bodelwyddan, and sister of Sir Watkin W. Wynn, which we announced last week. FUNERAL OF LADY WILLIAMS, BODELWYDDAN. The remains of Lady Williams, of Bodelwyddan (whose death we recorded last week) were taken from The Brow," Ruabon, on Saturday, to Rhuddlan station and thence to Bodelwyddan Church for interment in the family vault, by the side of her husband, the late Sir Hugh Williams. The attendance of relatives and friends was large, including Sir W. Grenville Williams, Bart., and the Messrs. and Misses Williams. Bodelwyddan, Sir Watkin and Lady Williams Wynn, the Earl of Powis, the Very Rev. G. Herbert, dean of Hereford, the Rev. Watkin H. Williams, Mrs. Williams Wynn, Cefn, and Mr. and Mrs. S. K. Mainwaring, Oteley. The dean of St. Asaph officiated, and at the grave the choristers sang Bishop Heber's hymn, "Thou art gone to the grave." The pro- ceedings were very plain and unostentatious, ten of the workmen acting as bearers. Lady Wynn and others placed beautiful wreaths on the coffin. The deceased lady was in her 60th year, and her loss will be greatly felt in the district. Lady Williams was the daughter of the late Sir Watkin Williams Wynn, fifth Baronet, of Wynnstay, and sister of the present Sir Watkin. She was born August 10, 1818, and married to the late Sir Hugh Wil- liams in 1843. Two of her ladyship's daughters are mar- ried, one to Mr. Edmund Peel, of Brynypys, and the other to Mr. S. K. Mainwaring, of Oteley Park, Ellesmere. Mr. and Mrs. Peel are at present in Switzerland. The lamented lady's death was very sudden. She took a car- riage drive in the afternoon, and was apparently in the en- joyment of excellent health. In the evening she was taken suddenly ill, and died of apoplexy before medical aid could be obtained.
