DEATH OF CAPT. CONWY. On Thursday morning the death occurred, at his Flintshire seat, Bodrhyddan Hall, near Rhyl, of Captain Rowley Conwy, at the age of 59 years, after a fortnight's ill- ness. Captain Conwy succeeded to the estates, which include property in Flint- shire, Denbighshire, and Ireland, in 1876, upon the death of his uncle, the late Shipley Conwy, and adapted the surname of Conwy, he being the son of the late Colonel Rowley. In 1874 he contested with Sir Robert Cun- cliffe, who was the sitting member, and Mr. P. Ellis Eyton the Parliamentary represent- ation of Flintshire, but was beaten by the Radical candidate, Mr. Eyton, by four votes, Sir Robert Cuncliffe being at the bottom of the poll. He was formerly a captain in the the 2nd Life Guards, and also held a com- mission as major in the Denbighshire Yeo- manry. He was deputy lieutenant for the county of Flintshire, and was a justice of the peace. Some years ago Captain Conwy was an enthusiastic follower of hounds, and acted as Master of the Flint and Denbigh I Hunt. He has also filled the position of High Sheriff. He leaves a widow (who, as the estates are not entailed, succeeds to the I property), four sons, and one daughter, who married Mr. Hugh Peel, a son of Mr. Edmund Peel, Rusbon. The funeral will take place at Rhuddlan churchyard on Mon- day next, at twelve o'clock.
