THE NEW JUDGE. Mr. Grantham, Q.C., M.P., has accepted the offer made to him of the judgeship vacant by the prefer- ment of Sir Henry Lopes to the Court of Appeal. Mr. William Grantham, who was elected as the first representative for the new borough of Croy- don, is the son of the late Mr. George Grantham, of Burcombe-place. near Lewes, by Sarah, daughter of the late Mr. Wiliiam Verrall, of Soutbover, Lewes. He was born in 1335, and married in 1865 Emma, elder daughter of the late Mr. Richard Wilson (of the family of Wilson of Plewlands, Cumber- land), of Chiddingley, Sussex, and of Molesworth House, Brighton. The new judge was educated at King's College School. He was called to the Bar at the Inner Temple in 1863, and joined the Home Circuit. He gained in 1863 the studentship given by the Council of Legal Education for the four Inns of Court, and was appointed a Q.C. in 1877, and a bencher of his Inn in 1880. He sat for East Surrey since 1874, and in the recent general election, when Surrey was further cut up into divisions and the new botough of Croydon created, he elected to stand for the new borough, and was elected by a majority of 1,169 over his Liberal opponent, Mr. J. S. Balfour. Mr. Grantham's elevation will cause a vacancy in the representa- tion of Croydon. The Press Association" says that Sir Arthur Hayter will probably be the Liberal and Mr. Sidney Herbert the Conservative candidate for the vacancy.
